Default Low cost, hard folding tonneau cover?

Anyone have a recommendation for a low cost, hard folding tonneau cover? I don't want one of the vinyl suspension tri-folds as I fear snow would pile up and stretch the vinyl. I am looking for a hard tri-fold with the added benefit of a little extra security for the bed contents. I just don't want to spend a fortune on a tonneau...I'm thinking $300-400 range is what I have to spend. I really only need added security for occasional family trips so most of the time it will be an appearance mod...doesn't have to be top of the line!

Hi
I recently traded in my 08 Big horn and bought a 2014 Ram Laramie Crew Cab. I am also looking for a hard folding tonneau cover in the same price range.

The one I am really looking at is the TonnoPro HF251. It is around the $500 range but it looks really cool. I like the idea of vinyl covered aluminum panels!

There has to be other options at this price point...

Thanks...I have seen lots of soft tri folds but with the snow I get here I think I want to go with a hard cover.

Yep, you're right about that. I originally wanted to spend up to $250 range for a soft tri-fold cover. Some of the folks here actually have positive experiences using that type. However, come spring and summer I'll have my kids' wakeboard eqpts back there. i feel that it's more secured(but not 100%) with the hard material. So I invested more on a bakflipG2 for peace of mind. You can buy a blemish one from the factory outlet and save a little bit. Price new is around 600-615 otd delivered.
