Default Rollbak Cover

Does anyone have one of these?

I'm going to invest in one but wanted to see if I can get some more "real world" feedbak (LOL I MADE TEH FUNNIES). I'm probably going to get a Rollbak G2, the retractable one. The flip back cover doesn't suit what I'd need. They are under 1k shipped. After looking at so many tonneau covers this is pretty much the only one I can find that meets my needs. The only thing lacking I might have to buy is a tailgate lock (anyone know a good one? lol), or if there would be a better cover for the money that can scaffold 400 +/- lbs and leaves full access to the stake holes?

Here is the site for reference: http://www.rollbaktonneaucover.com/

Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

For the tailgate lock I would get the power lock one that ties into your key fob (that is if you have power locks)

For the tonneau...I got nothing for ya.

I just took delivery of the BakFlip HD. I considered the RollBak and had read several real-world reviews that were very positive. I went the way I did because 1) the BakFlip is a less complex mechanism, 2) it doesn't take up any bed length, and 3) when folded up against the rear window, it acts to protect the cab from the cargo.

I have to admit it was a tough choice - the RollBak looks slick!

I also ordered a Pop & Lock power tailgate lock to tie into my power locks, though I haven't received it yet.

I was thinking about the FlipBak HD too, it's a pretty pimp cover. I think that I'm in the same position you were in before you got it, $100 more for the convenient roller but slight loss of bed space, or $100 less for a just as sturdy cover with no bed space loss but manual flip opening. Well one thing is for sure at least, I know what power tailgate lock I'm getting, lol!

My only complaint about the FlipBak is one of your praises. I need full rear viewing with the cover fully retracted because I regularly back up a dock door ramp that only has 6" (have to fold my mirrors in) clearance on each side, and you have to hit it dead on because they're only tire width ramps.

I have the rollback on the resort F150 and frankly it is a POS. it does not seal out the weather, the drains do not drain correctly and the bin that holds the rollback is always full of water. The latching mechanism is poorly designed and its a real pain in the ass. If it ever freezes where you are you might as well forget opening it all winter long

My truck is always garaged, so I don't think freezing closed over night would be a issue (we only get frost for a few weeks here). But water in the drum where the retractable cover is doesn't sound good... Did they offer any sort of replacement or what have you through their 1yr warranty; or did their customer service offer any help to the issue?

Hijack where do you get the tailgate lock and how hard to install? Hijack. I apologize. I like my fiberglass one if that helps. Lol

Pop & Lock PL8200 - Keep in mind I haven't installed (or even received it) yet, but it looked like it's what I wanted, so it's what I ordered.

I also wonder what model/revision it is - I think they said on their site that the current version is a redesign meant to resolve several issues.

That was my main concern. The more parts to it the more things that can go wrong. I like the simple design of the flipbak and will probably go with that. My buddy has a Pace Edwards rolling cover and has no complaints after using it for 2+ years, since I don't want to spend 1.2k+ for that I will go with the more simple flipper and just macgyver something for my backing up view dilemma. Thanks for the input everyone.

If I get a chance to install mine, I can let you know how it goes - unfortunately, I'm not sure how soon that will be.
