Can't beat the price!
February 26, 2017
Installed onto a 2016 Sierra. 15 minutes to install, great fit, seal, and price. Truck drove through down pours of rain the same night and stayed completely dry.
I found that it was very easy as most others have stated

Ordered the TruXedo 272001 for my 2016 Chevy Silverado LS 4 DR Double Cab with the Standard 6.5ft box. It took a total of about 15 minutes to install. I found that it was very easy as most others have stated. It looks great installed, I will post some pictures at a later date as it is cold and snowy here in the North East. You should have two people to install this but it can be done with one if you are careful. The 2nd person is great to hold the side rails of the cover while you are inserting them into the front beam. All in all nice cover at a great price!
Looks great, works great

Second one(new truck). Will buy again if I need one. Looks great, works great, and wears great. Installed in 15 minutes, first one took 25 minutes(had to read instructions gak). 2015 silverado 1500 double cab.
The cover works great and looks really good
September 25, 2015
Received the cover in four days but I didn't get home that night until after dark. The next morning I decided to try putting it on while the kids were waiting for the bus. Everything was clear in the box and the instructions were concise. It took me about 40 minutes to install (would have taken less, but I am a perfectionist and the alignment had to be perfect). The cover works great and looks really good. I don't have a weather test yet, but the box included extra weather sealing that I used against the bulkhead.

Awesome product. I watched a youtube video of a guy putting one of these on just to make sure I was clear on the installation, but it was super easy. The only problem was I installed to close to the cab the first time and had a gap at the back. I just took it through a car wash to test the waterproofness, and my truck bed was completely dry afterwards. I am very happy with the quality. I payed extra to order direct from amazon for the prime shipping, and the shipping ended up having some issues, which was Amazon's fault not the company. I am very glad I purchased this item. Fits perfectly on my 2014 Silverado Double Cab.
Truxedo is the best!
December 27, 2013
I recently purchased a new pick up and I needed a new tonneau cover for it. I did some on line research looking for the best system and an in law told me about Truxedo. He told me his was 4 years old and the cover had started to fray around the edges. He told me how he contacted Truxedo company and they warrantied a whole new top! I immeadiatly ordered up a Truxedo for my truck through Amazon and it showed up in 4 days. After carefully reading the directions I installed the cover on my truck. It took me 1 hour and 15 minutes to do it taking my time. I am thoroughly satisfied with the product so far! I am now living in Arizona so time will tell how well it holds up but I especially like the fact the top latches down and with the spring loaded latches the top is easy to latch and unlatch. The top is always taught too. I say do your research but you will not find a better product!
Why did i wait so long?
May 11, 2017
Waited a couple years, but wish I had got it sooner. I love having a dry storage area and it's super easy to install and remove if I need to. The fabric does flap a bit in the wind, but doesn't appear to be stretching, so I would say this is common with soft covers.
Great cover, awesome price!
August 5, 2016
We love our cover! We don't leave it on 100% of the time, mostly use it for road trips and it is so easy to install/remove. Folds up plenty small enough for easy convenient storage. Great quality for the price. Highly reccomend and I would buy again no problem. I bought it for my husbands Father's Day gift this year and he was more than pleased!
Great Cover, Highly Recommended

This cover was of great quality, and looks very nice on my Silverado. It's very durable. I've had my 60lb dog jump onto the cover when it was folded back, and it didn't do any damage.
Premium TriFold Tonneau Cover
April 24, 2016
This cover is very high quality, looks great, is easy to install and remove if needed. I have had it for several months and it has been through a torrential rain storm, five car washes and snow with no leaks at all. The weather here in Michigan has ranged from the teens to 80 degrees in the last two months and the cover has operated perfectly in both of those conditions. Sure beats fighting my old roll up cover that would shrink and be tough to snap down in summer and next to impossible in winter. Shipping was super fast, and the tonneau even came with a storage bag and nice led light. Don't hesitate to purchase this product, good quality, good seller, great price.

Fits great and was easy to install. Great on identify what I needed online after giving my truck details.

Works fine. The Velcro isn't the strongest. Unvelcros in high wind and speed.
Good cover and easy installation
June 1, 2017
I had this brand of tonneau cover on my last truck and liked it enough to buy one for my new truck. P/N 272001 is for a 2014+ GM full sized truck with a 6.5ft bed (unsure if it will work on other years). Installation is very simple, there are two side rails that sit on top of the bed rails and the header-type rail that installs near the cab and the whole thing is held down with six aluminum clamps. My last cover was over six years old when I sold the truck and still looked brand new.
The fit is good, but the tonneau rails are completely straight and don't follow the complex contours of the sheetmetal as well as I'd like (reason for the 4-stars). The tonneau cover also just barely catches the inside edge of the tailgate. I've seen other covers that fit within the bed for a nearly flush installation, which I think looks nicer, but those usually take up a bit of space inside the bed. This cover still allows you to get your fingers into the stake pocket (it's tight) to use the step feature on the bumper of the 2014+ trucks. I didn't time the installation but I think it took me about 30 minutes to install by myself at a leisurely pace.
I can't comment yet on the weather tightness of this particular cover, but my last cover kept everything reasonably dry. At a car wash, a little bit of water would get in at the front of the bed and the sprayer would make about the last 6 inches of the bed wet near the tailgate. Based on the fit of the new cover, I expect it to perform similarly.
The best feature of this cover is the ability to roll up quickly and easily. There are two locking tabs near the tailgate which releases the rail and allows it roll up out of the way. The end rail by the tailgate and cross-braces all roll-up as one assembly. I've never had a problem rolling and unrolling my last cover in freezing conditions. The locking tabs never froze up and the velcro that holds the sides never gave me problems during the winter either. I've had many different styles of soft tonneau covers over the years - the fixed snaps, sliding snaps, interlocking cover/rail, removable/adjustable cross rails and this one is the best style for my needs.
A little manufacturing and inspection oops.
September 18, 2016
seams to be a quality cover only problem was on putting it on the truck had trouble getting it centered on the truck box until I found that the cover was not centered in the back locking bracket had to get it pulled through the channel so it was even on both sides mounted better after that adjustment .
A nice affordable alternative from a company that provides a quality product and stands behind it with a great warranty.

Perfect fit for my wife's 2015 Chevy Silverado Double Cab Blackout Edition. It's a perfect fit except for the rear seal being about 1/4" shorter than the Truxedo that I had installed on my Ford F150. I can only guess that it is due to the rail caps that are on this edition. The rear seal does close, it's just a bit shorter than the other cover that I have. I'm hoping over time that the seal will close correctly rather than trying to fold back under itself. Also on my Ford F150 the rails sit inside the rail caps, not on top of them as this model does. So that could be the difference. I've added some pics of the rear so that you can make your own decision on that matter. Other than that, this TruXedo TruXport cover is a perfect fit. Everything you need is in the package. You will also want a little alcohol (rubbing not drinking) for the application of the front seal that keeps the water out, a razor blade or scissors to cut that seal to length, and a 1/2" socket to tighten the clamps. Quality has always been a big focus from Truxedo and it shows with this product too.

Quality Cover for the price, easy install, needed to replace the two quick clamp bolts with lund tonneau cover bolts as the OEM bolts were cheap and broke. Worth the quick fix.

The cover fits great! A real bargain for the price. Seals the bed really well.
Great item... would purchase another one without hesitation
May 31, 2016
I love the cover and the quality is great. The only thing that kept me from giving 5 stars is the latching system. The rear-most latch is a "quick-detach" and I will definitely need to upgrade the bolts that it came with to keep from bending over time.
Other than that... the quality of the cover is top notch and fit perfectly on my truck bed. (2012 Silverado - Crew)
Does the job

This is pretty good tonneau cover. The quality is not as good as some we have owned in the past but the price is better. It does the job.

The cover looks nice and seems to fit well until it rains. Impossible to get the cover tight enough to prevent puddles of rain on the cover causing sagging
took a good 45 minutes
September 25, 2017
One corner was ripped, I noticed after install. Customer support sent a new replacement fabric. It required that i slide the header and gate pieces onto the fabric. Once all that was done, took a good 45 minutes, it was too tight and wouldn't close...I ended up returning the entire product out of frustration. ordered another brand. If the corner wasn't ripped I would have kept this cover as I felt it was of high quality and looked nice.
Easy to install
August 13, 2017
Easy to install, but super tight to close. Warranty is voided if the latches are adjusted, so I'm hoping it loosens up over time

This my third truxedo and am not impressed with fit. The rails didn't fit into the slots that hook to the front brace. Had to modify to make work. Also I don't like the release latches They are kinda sharp the other truxedo covers I had came with one release and worked a lot better. Wished I'd have bought a Lund or extang cover. Won't buy another truxedo
May 11, 2017
Update on my review. Easy to install but the Velcro sucks!! Once you unroll it then roll it back close, the Velcro won’t stick on its own you have to go along both sides and push them down. I had another brand on my last truck and that Velcro did not need to do this. If you don’t push it down it will flop in the wind like crazy. I’d stay away from this brand just because of this.

The width does NOT fit a 2014 GMC Sierra. TruXedo TruXport tonneau covers do not cover the width of any bed as I was told by the manufacturer. Nothing in the description on Amazon does it state that fact.

Well, this came to me and the box was damaged pretty badly. When I opened it up the cover looked undamaged so I brought it over to my truck and spread it out. It was then I noticed there was no mounting hardware of any kind nor was there any instructions. Returning it.

Well very disappointed. As you can see from the pics this it what was inside another roughly packed box. Then I notice the cut in the strap, and the part that that strap should velcro to is torn out and stuck on the strap. This means one side to hold it when it's rolled up. I'm still gonna install it because I need it for an upcoming trip. I don't know if the one I received was a previous return or what, but it should have never been shipped in this condition. My wife had one of these on her truck and it was great. Soooo, Truxedo or Amazon, whose to blame? Not sure but I expect better from both.
EDIT: Then I found this as I am installing (5th pic) can't even finish putting it on now...

Package arrived without all the parts. The packaging says there should be clamps -- but there are none. We purchased this because we are leaving on a trip -- and now we can't use a $300 product. WTF?
