Extang RT tonneau cover

Has anybody got 1 of these or had 1. Just wondering how this particular roll-up soft cover holds up over time or your experiences with it?

Extang RT tonneau cover

I've had an Extang soft vinyl tonno covers on each of my last three vehicles.

The first was a '98 S-10 SS with the step-side bed. It had the snaps all around.

The second was my '97 Ram 1500 4X4 SLT. This time I put on the Extang tonno cover that had no snaps, but had the hard vinyl strips on the back and sides. It did provide a smoother finish, but I didn't like it for the reason that when it was rolled up tight to use the bed for large items, it never rolled up into a neat tight roll. Especially in the colder weather, the roll was perhaps 8" to 12" across AT BEST.

The third is my current '03 Ram 1500 4X4 SLT and this time I went back to the snaps. It rolls up nice and tight even in the coldest weather.

I swear by the Extang brand soft vinyl tonno covers and would never buy anything else. I've never had a single stitch come undone, never a bad snap and they are very easy to clean. Also, Extang sells their own Tonno Tonic which rubs into the vinyl for a like-new finish.

You can't go wrong with an Extang!!!

I've got the extang black max on mine now for a little over two years and still looks great
No drilling , the bars just clamp to the rails and have reversable snaps for summer and winter time.

Look at the tri-fold.
I have had many soft covers extang holds up well. The tri fold has to be opened with the tail gate down. Locking tail gate gets locked bed cover.
