    OT Roll-top truck bed covers..

    I'm considering the purchase of a "roll-up" truck bed cover for my F350. The two I have looked at are made by Pace-Edwards and TracTop. These are semi-rigid, and roll up into a "housing" near the cab if you want to haul soemthing large.

    I'm looking for opinions/comments about these covers - good and bad..

    I have a Pace Edwards and LOVE it. If you keep the truck were stuff falls on the cover all the time you have to take the cover off and vacume out inside every once in a while so that it rolls up all the way. Mine has metal slats in it so that you can not break in. So far only once had there ever been any water in the bed after rain and that was my own fault. I did not shut the tailgate all the way. I have actually left a 20,000 buck projector in the back while at the airport for a week!!!! Since no one can see in there is is actually really safe. If I put a cap on I think I will keep this in the bed. I have loaded up the truck with lumber and the roll up does not seem to get in the way at all.

    The Roll Top and the Trac Top are both made by Pace Edwards. The Roll Top is the original version. The Trac Top is supposed to be the new "improved" model. I think there is about $100 difference in retail price.

    I have only put on the Trac Top myself, but found it to be a pretty good product. They're great for people that use their trucks like a truck and still need the security of a bed cover.

    Drop me a line if you need any pricing info. I'll do what I can to take care of you. Plan on a little time for the install.

    You can contact Big Mark (Skater) or Little Mark (OutlawMark) at Outlaw Motor Sports in Culpepper, VA. I am sure they have all the skinny on all of the products. Either of them will take very good care of you, even if you do not purchase.

    I looked at installing one of those on my F350- never got around to it and bought an Excursion, but I think there is another mfg down in Pompano Beach, FL called Roll-N-Lock you could check out for comparison in quality and pricing.

    My throttleman has the electric version of the Pace Edwards on his F-350 and it has worked perfectly for almost 2 years now. Even living here around the salt air of the Atlantic ocean it still looks new. I have been shopping around and I just ordered one for my F-450. I decided to go with the electric version. From what I have read and what I have personally seen, Pace Edwards has a good product here.

    I had a client in the mid-90's with one. His big black lab would sleep on it, and it still worked fine. Don't know how the 110lb dog got up on it.

    When I researched this topic in '98, I found dealer who sold three brands, Pace Edwards being one of them. His take was the one you choose should be based upon the security you want (ie, carrying a lot of expensive tools around all the time vs seldom) PE was at bottom of list (but I am totally happy w/ mine). I think that it was Roll 'n Lock at the top of the three. You could actually stand on the thing.
