So I was able to find a brand new Access Vanish tonneau on Ebay for $200 with free shipping, and couldn't pass it up. Just had it installed yesterday.

----------------------
Pros:

The price I paid was awesome, but still isn't outrageous if bought at normal price (about $360)

Super easy install. Takes maybe 20 minutes.

Good quality fabric

Super low profile. Barely above the bed at all.

Latches tight, with easy open and close
----------------------
Cons:

The rear edge of the tonneau, against the tailgate, isn't as nicely finished as the sides. Sticks up slightly. I see on higher end Access models they have a nicer edge at the rear. The Vanish is probably designed this way in order to entice buyers to upgrade to a higher end model.

Tie downs for when rolled up aren't very great quality

Edge fit isn't perfect. Near the cab, and at the corners it isn't perfect. I have never seen a soft tonneau that is though.

----------------------

Overall I'm happy. Couldn't beat it for the price. It has a much lower porfile than any tonneau I've seen before. If your main priority is low profile, then THIS is definitely the best tonneau I've seen. If you want more security, or a super exact fit, you'd be better off with a hard cover.

My rating 8/10. Would recommend for sure.

I got this same tonneau cover for my 2009 Ram 4 years ago when it was new and then installed it on my 2013. It has been a great cover and has held up nicely over the last 4 years. I really like the low profile design and the tie downs are still the original and do their job nicely for their intended purpose. As you said...You cannot beat it for the price!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, it's nice to know the cover will withstand a few years of abuse at least.
