Undercover Pickup Bed Covers

I have been researching various covers for my Chevy Silverado and have narrowed it down to the Undercover tilt up product. Would be good to hear from some others who may be using this product and what you think of it.
Appreciate any Feedback-----

I couldn't be happier with the paragon cover. I wish they had the color option when I ordered mine a few years back.

I do not use anything like that type of bed cover but here is some things to consider when buying.

First is the truck a short bed and if so is there clearance between the king pin and cover?

I have a short bed truck and the tri-fold bed cover. The TrailAIr pin box interferes with the tri-fold bed cover when folded up and the hitch is in the towed position. I must remove the tri-fold bed cover and store the cover in the garage when towing the trailer.

Second will there be enough clearance with the side rails of the undercover tilt up bed cover and the pin box as the trailer rotates thru the turn. Some members on another forum have had this issue with their trailers’ pin box and bed cover rails.
Just something to consider before purchasing and finding out you have issues.

After going through 3 of the crappy back flip covers I went to a undercover one. It was very good I had just the basic black plastic one but it was easy enough for me to take off and reinstall on my own. My truck bed is only 5ft.

But after 1 year it still looked great and work great. I switched to a snugtop canopy. But the undercover is very nice I think you will be happy.

I looked at the Paragon Product also but since they only distribute by shipping it to you I was a lil concernced about any warranty issues etc without a local dealer.

I have an Undercover on my 01 Dodge 3500. I have had it for 4 years and it still looks like new. I stow it in the garage when towing the fifth wheel.

When it is on the truck, everything stays bone dry in the bed.

What truck do you have? I am looking at a rollup type so I can use it when the fifth wheel is hooked up while traveling.

Hope this helps.

We went with a Diamond Back cover and a Truck Vault below. Spendy yes, but secure, sturdy and very useful for our deal.
