I have narrowed my choice down to going with an Undercover tonneau cover. However, I am having a difficult time choosing between the standard hard cover or the newer Undercover Flex cover. The Flex is a three section fold up hard cover much like some of the others being offered in the aftermarket venue but with some improvements and enhancements thrown in for good measure.

Currently if ordered from the Undercover direct website you can save 15% plus free shipping which puts the price of the Flex in the $667 price range and the hard cover in the $675 price range delivered.

I like the look of the hard cover with it's wrap around corner over the bed rails, the textured look, the light weight and lock feature.

I like the Flex because of the flexibility of the fold up design and no need to do a total removal of the tonneau for over sized loads.

What to do, what to do. I'm driving myself crazy here.

There is a hard Undercover for sale here locally...well it would be 140 miles round trip for $500. But figure 2 1/2 hours drive plus 10 gallons of gas to go take a look I'm not sure the savings are worth the trip for a used vs new.

One nice feature on the Undercover hard cover is that it doesn't weigh much more than a 50# bag of range cubes, but is a little more awkward.

However, as you say it does need to be removed and stored until reattached to the bed. And while this could be done by ones self, it the wind is blowing it would make for an interesting situation while your lifting a 6'x5.5' wind catching sail over your head.

Boy Howdy there proud of that LazerLite cover.

I think I will go with the Undercover Flex. It is not a matter of having a place to store a tonneau I have dual double split level garages so space is available. I guess the deciding factor is that it is a truck and you don't always have prior notice as to what you may be hauling at any given unexpected time. So while the hard one piece maybe my favorite look of choice, the flexibility of the folding Flex cover maybe my better choice in being practical.

Here is a link to the Undercover Flex compared to one of the other big name hard folding covers.

As for washing and drying it, no big deal I have a number of those soft wash brushes on extension poles that I use for the motor home washing. Drying it can be handled with the same pole and brush pushing the chamois across the tonneau cover.

I had the undercover (Standard version) on my F250. I liked the cover, but they are extremely thick and take up alot of cargo area. The cover was probably 5 inches thick and most of that was under the bed rails (Thats why you can stand on it). I loved the look, but it wasnt very usable. I know the flex is really popular. I vote you go with the flxex.
Thanks for the impute, I wasn't aware that the standard Undercover was so thick and ate up storage area. Don't guess your a supplier for the Flex and could beat their price by any chance? After all I have a coupon code I could also use with you....LOL!!!

I dont carry the undercover brand yet. Sorry. Ill bet your coupon codes are piling up with all the orders ive seen!
I have to be honest with you here, while I have ordered and been extremely pleased with your product and service, it is my son who has the largest pile of offers coupon codes building up. Seems like every time I would turn around he as placing an order from you, and pleased with each and every order.

Looks great,

My son just purchased the Bac Flip Tonneau cover for his Raptor, and I must say it looks excellent. Now he is waiting to see how the installation on the power tailgate lock goes on my FX4 before he has one installed on his Raptor. He likes the idea of the tailgate auto locking and securing the tonneau cover with the power lock function of the truck.
