Default Best Bed Cover for the Money

Okay so I just recently picked up my '11 Ram Laramie Longhorn. I was actually replacing my Yukon Denali XL. Now I kinda miss having the interior storage space so I am looking at getting a cover for the bed of the truck. I am looking for a cover that is easily accessible, can be removed fairly simply, durable, and looks good. Help me out guys!!!

That looks sweet. What's the price? Did you install it yourself?

Got a Tri-fold had the dealer install it before I picked the truck up. Got it for 600$. Its an extang solid fold
http://extang.com/docs/solidfold.html
Very durable comes off in seconds, latches down near the cab and he last panel as easy pull/snap/lock handles underneath.
I personally laid on this before to put decals on my rear window, it can hold 200+ pounds without denting.

Best "bang for your buck" is Undercover. Hard cover (better security than a soft vinyl cover), you can stand on it, you can install or remove the cover in less than 60 seconds, has a bedlight and is around $700 (except for the model that has to be painted).

I don't like the hard covers because I wouldn't be able to get my motorcycle in the bed....I plan on getting the (I think it's Access) cover, they have several, but all are basically the same with slightly different options and warranties. The one I want has lifetime warranty, it is a soft cover that rolls up out of the way(can fit the bike in the bed) and it also locks (I understand you could cut through it, but if someone REALLY wants in, they could get through your hard cover also). It uses velcro not snaps on the sides, so you just roll it up takes seconds. I think it is around $400...

Yeh, it's a nice cover. I believe I paid around $400 for it. It has a lifetime warranty, rolls all the way to the cab, and instead of using velcro or snaps (both suck) it uses latches along the rails that lock the cover in place about every foot or so. But, the reason why I like it so much is because it has a really low profile. You can also remove the whole cover in less than a minute. Another reason I like it is because it locks with the tailgate. And, yes I installed it myself. Really simple install.

I'll have to check this one out too, the only thing I didn't like about the Acces brand was the velcro would wear out eventually...

Access covers are very good roll up covers, the Access Lorado is the most popular. Lifetime warranty on frame and vinyl, can't beat that!

The Extang Solid Fold is a pretty good cover. The slight cons are that it's not very low profile and the seals are a bit wimpy for a tonneau cover.

IMO tri-folds suck because they take away space in the bed. When they are folded all the way it takes about a foot or so of bed space. While a roll up gives you access to the entire bed.
