I vowed to get a Tonneau cover after I got stuck in the rain headed to a camping trip and tried to stuff everything in the back seat (with passengers)..NEVER AGAIN. After doing my research, I found many styles, brands, and prices all over the place but I wanted to stay under $200. After learning about the different types and applications I was tossed up between a roll up and tri-fold. I decided to go with the roll up because I didn’t want to lose any bed space which you do lose 1/3 of the space with a trifold unless you take it off.
After looking at many brands and reviews I had decided on the Tyger Topro roll up. Looking a little deeper, I noticed that this MaxMate had the same pictures, so figured it was the same Tyger I was looking at just branded differently. Sure enough when it arrived it was the Tyger brand which is what I wanted anyway but this one was $20 cheaper. This model does cover up your stake holes so if you are going to use a rack to transport stuff you will need to take it off or consider buying a low profile model that keeps the holes exposed.
The cover arrived in a sturdy cardboard box, the cover portion was in a storage bag and the rails and clamps were safely packaged to avoid scratches. There was also an instruction booklet, warranty card, and parts checklist. Also came with an LED light to mount near the back. The cover was very easy to install and took me about ½ hour. Probably will take 5 minutes to take off if I need to and 20 minutes to put back on. The fit and finish is real good on my 2015 GMC Sierra with a 6.5ft bed. The cover was nice and straight as was the stitching and the release was smooth. It rolls up lickety split I am able to use the full space of the bed, and rolled down sits nice and flat. It rained like crazy the first weekend after I put it on and there was not a drop of water in my bed. The rain beaded up nicely on top and ran off. I haven’t driven many miles with it on (about 200) but my gas mileage seems to be better… will see. With the tailgate locked it provides some level of protection too (a thief would have to cut it open to get inside). I find myself putting things in the bed much more often now where I used to always fill up the back seat. So far so good, I am real happy with this cover.
