Awesome cover for great price Ram 1500 5'7"
September 15, 2017
I bought this based on reviews written here.
I have this on a 2014 Ram 1500 with the 5'7" bed.
Very fast shipping and easy to install. Looks great and comes with a lifetime warranty on hardware, and 10 years on the cover.
I have a couple of friends with the spring laded covers. They really like this one better and they paid much more than I did.
We'll see how it lives up to a New England winter in a few months, but based on how it's constructed, and the reviews here, I don't think I have to worry.
Will buy again.

I was a little scared to buy this at first. But hands down it's amazing. We had it installed in 30 minutes and it keeps everything in the bed of the truck dry when it rains. The little light that comes with it is a joke but that doesn't make or break it
Definitely a great buy for the money!
August 23, 2017
I have had this on my 2013 Ram 1500 Express for several months now, and it has kept the bed of my truck clean and dry the whole time. I haven't had any issues with it at all. The little stick-on light that comes with it was pretty useful until it fell off and refused to stick any more. It would probably stick to a metall unlined bed better than the plastic bedliner that is in mine.

Really impressed with how it fits on my Dodge Ram. I live in Seattle where we get tons of different weather, and of course a ton of rain. My bed stays dry. The best part about this product is telling people what I paid for it. Everyone is shocked and asks where I bought it. I love promoting good companies with great products, and this by far as been one of my best purchases for my truck so far. Shipped really fast!
Top notch tri-fold cover for pick up truck!
January 20, 2016
We purchased this several weeks ago for our 2007 Dodge Ram 1500, and I wanted to wait for some weather before posting a review. It was easy to install - I say as I was taking pictures watching my husband do all the work! I quizzed him all during the process and he was amazed at how quickly it installed. He did go back and make some adjustments that took a little time, but the included directions made it easy to do. It was packaged well and arrived without damage. It even came with a very sturdy bag to store it in if you ever decide to remove it for some reason.
Since it's been installed, my husband has loaded 400# of sand bags into the bed of the truck and right away we had several inches of rain. We've also had several inches of snow this week - and the sandbags are still nice and dry. He was actually concerned about where the tailgate meets the cover, that it might allow moisture in, but it has stayed nice and dry. It also comes with straps that hold down the folded-up cover, if you need to travel with the cover open.
While I can't say how this will be over the course of time, we have been very impressed with the quality thus far. It seems very sturdy and well made- and it makes the truck look sharp too :)

Purchased for our vacation. It is easy to install and protected our luggage and other items while we were on the road. Very happy with my choice.
Not sure if there is a better deal for tbe money...this cover rocks
February 16, 2017
Have had this on my truck for a couple of months and now that winter is here I absolutely love it. I didn't use the supplied weather stripping As I am constantly removing the cover to load the bed of the truck and every time I told it up the bed is dry. The quick locks supplied with the cover make installation and removal a snap.....they also have a lot of adjust which allows you to snug it perfectly...also the seller shipped it quickly
Excellent quality Tonneau cover
September 14, 2015
Excellent quality Tonneau cover. I was hesitant given the price but with several solid reviews I went for it. So glad that I did. The cover material is high quality, the aluminum frame is very nice and the latch system worked perfectly in my 2015 Chevy 1500 Quad cab. I have the factory bed rail protectors and plastic liner insert. The latch system fit without any modifications to the plastic. I do notice a little bit of light showing in the far back corners but I think it needs time to settle and if I still see light I will double up on the foam seal that is included in the kit. Install took all of 20 minutes. Very Nice setup.
Great fitting cover!
June 8, 2015
The cover is well built. Comes with everything you need to install in minutes. Having owned several covers of this type I always lube the threads on the rear clamps. They will rust and become unmovable if you don't. This was shipped FedEx and I followed it from California. It could of arrived two days sooner but because it was on an overland truck it stopped twice for over 24 hours. I just hate FedEx and this really has nothing to do with the quality of this great cover. I hope this company stops using FedEx. You will find that it will ship faster and better with UPS.
Very happy with this
February 20, 2015
Very happy with this. Goes on super easy and looks good. Took my truck through a car wash and bed was still dry. So it will definitely keep anything you have under it dry. As long as it holds up I don't know why anyone would buy a more expensive one

Covers my stuff
August 16, 2017
So far so good. Not perfect but this cover was easy to install and does the job I needed. It keeps my foursomes golf clubs dry to and from the course. At the very back of my window I can see a moist spot after heavy rain but nothing that would cause a serious issue. For the price it good enough and does look really good on my truck. I did place the weather stripping on the bed behind my window because I did no need it on the tailgate. A thicker piece of weather stripping should seal out any moisture. The magnet in the light will not work is you have a plastic bed liner or if it's a spray on. The magnet is not strong enough. Not a fan of the lights design but it's just extra and does work if you don't use cheap batteries. I would buy it again.
will update this in a month or so but for now it is as described and looks great on my 2015 Ram 1500 Express Quad Cab
May 12, 2017
Only 1 day on, will update this in a month or so but for now it is as described and looks great on my 2015 Ram 1500 Express Quad Cab. I do wish it was about 2 inches longer. This is a universal fit so dont expect it to conform to your bed. As you may know, Dodge truck tailgates have a curve in them so it took a few extra attempts to line it up but all in all it took maybe 5 minutes to install. It fits tights and looks great.
Good buy for the money
May 4, 2017
Easy to Install. Flutters a little when driving. Good buy for the money.
Nice cover !!
July 26, 2016
I purchased another brand of tri-fold cover and I sent it back because the corners all stuck up into the air. This cover is significantly better, but still not perfectly flat like a more expensive roll up cover. The cover itself and the clamps are sturdier on this one as well. I would definitely recommend this cover for the price.
it did great on its first road trip and during light rain
May 24, 2016
I am very precise and meticulous so it took me about 30 minutes to get aligned correctly and folded out, anchor spots marked, etc. The clamps need to be adjusted as need-be based on your truck as they are not consistent in the same pegs when shipped. I will probably need a replacement clamp near the tailgate within a month or two, as it was hard to open and close right out of the box and while installed. Other than this, it did great on its first road trip and during light rain.
Cover arrived today and fits nicely.
August 7, 2017
Nice cover and reasonable cost
Almost perfect fit. It's been great
January 3, 2017
Almost perfect fit. It's been great. Seems very sturdy. I wish it was easier/quicker to take off and put on. The pin holder should be made of a more durable material other than plastic. Feels flimsy and easily breakable.
Very good quality product
March 24, 2016
Very good quality product. My only complaint is that it is not as wide as I would like. It doesn't fully cover the holes at the end of the bedrails so small amounts of snow and rain still get into the bed.
Nice cover for the price.
February 7, 2016
The fitment was very good sealed up with no water leaks. It was pretty easy to install, the most time-consuming part was tightening the clamps down toward the cab of the truck they use locknuts in the handle so it took a long time to get them close other than that the cover is a good deal for the price.
Easy install and fits my 2015 Silverado Dbl cab nicely
September 16, 2015
Easy install and fits my 2015 Silverado Dbl cab nicely. As the price reflects, it is not a higher end product but for my needs and expectations will work perfectly. The hardware (clamps) are not as nice as some of the more expensive covers I've had in the past however I think the price savings outweighs that. If you want a good, functional cover at a great price..buy this. If you have to have the best.......spend your hard earned money somewhere else!

Tri fold? No it's a bi fold!
August 30, 2017
The bed cover is nice but I thought it was gonna b able to open all the way without having to fully detach it. That was the whole reason I went with a tri fold tonneau cover but apparently it's a bi fold not a tri fold. Kinda misleading but it is a nice cover
Not a bad cover but has loosened up over a year now

Not to bad but doesn't seal real good on my bulk head and leaks on my tail gate from where the water just sits bc of the tail gate shape sides are sealed great
Looks good and fairly easy to install
February 14, 2017
Looks good and fairly easy to install. The only complaint I have is it is universal so not made exclusively for my truck. It seems that the adjustments that I tried were all just a bit off from where they needed to be. You can't see it nor to I think it will degrade the performance but I know it's there.

August 5, 2016
I guess you get what you pay for. It fits my 2014 Ram decent. It does stay put. The lock down's keep it in place. But just sitting in my driveway in heavy rain it leaks a little on the right side. I've only had in on the truck for 1 month. Time will tell how well it stays together.
not the best
December 31, 2016
Installation was very easy and the fit is perfect. But the cover material itself is kind of thin flaps too much specially in highway driving. And there is no adjustment that I can see that would resolve this. I've had other soft covers did not have this much of an issue with flapping of the cover.
It fits good, easy to install but material is not tight
December 22, 2016
It fits good, easy to install but material is not tight . I do believe you get what you pay for. it will work fine for what I want.
Otherwise a great quality bed cover with no complaints
July 2, 2016
The only issue I have is the back latch. Had extang trifecta before and that design works a lot smoother. Otherwise a great quality bed cover with no complaints
Not bad for $200

Looks good. You get what you pay for!
Two Star Reviews:
Cheap bed cover would not order again.
February 10, 2017
The cover in question, while works, has some draw backs in my opinion.
First, the vinyl cover is not very thick, so I foresee me buying another cover in two years.
Second, the latch system to attach the cover to the bed is fair at best. The rear latches are more or less fine, other than side to side adjustment (that made this cover fit too many applications). However the front latches need to be spring loaded clasps, not this flimsy plastic clip on a bolt. They move all over the place, and if you "lock" them in place to fold up the cover they fall down wanting the puncture the cover, poor design.
Third, I hope once it gets warmed in the sun and "settles" on my truck is seals better. Currently there are gaps regardless the adjustment I do front to rear and side to side.
That all said about the cover, the package was nice and neat. The instruction were clear. The strips of foam for the tailgate are very plush (however pointless since the bed cover doesn't really fit). Overall I am disappoint and if it wasn't such a hassle to mail something this big back, I would return it.
Works but not as good as others ive had
January 11, 2017
The price is nice on this, delivery was good. Packaging and all good as well. This product does fall short for me though. I previously had a trifecta by extang on a 2014 ram quad cab.. More money but better cover. The fabric on these feel brittle like they may Crack in the winter. Not as water tight. The clamps don't ever seem to be in the right location for my truck. 2016 ram crew cab. I needed one for a trip and didn't believe there was that much difference. There is. I will switch back to the other brand I had previously. If money is issue this is a decent cover but can't see it lasting long, as I have a slight Crack in the folding seam already. If you can swing something more pricey with better mounting clamps, that are specific to vehicle, spend it. Just being honest on my experience. Others have had excellent experience, just not me.
It's great. I have already had to replace this cover ...
September 24, 2016
I bought this because of the positive reviews and affordable price. I'm having to give it two stars, just because it didn't work for me doesn't mean it won't work for you. Here's my problem. It flew off one day while I was driving. I may have been going 80mph. So above the speed limit but not so far it should snap the plastic clips off the metal rails. If your getting this for a work truck or don't drive very fast. It's great. I have already had to replace this cover with in a year for 70.00 more I bought the truxsedo from tannoe covers and I can definitely tell you the quality was superior to that of the tiger. My suggestion is spend the extra 70.00 dollars the first time.
... get this cover on your truck it is a great water sealed cover
August 22, 2016
First of all after you get this cover on your truck it is a great water sealed cover.
That being said unfortunately when this product arrived or had some significant scratched in the cover. As well as many of the screws were not correctly installed. When I went to attached this cover to my truck a few of the screws fell out all over the place. As well as a few of the screws already installed in the were stripped causing even more of a headache during the install.
If you / when you get the cover on it is pretty solid.

To many problems with the fit and then not able to get parts from the seller. over all once i got it to fit and pruchased some othet parts it fit well enough to be able to stop most of the water that would me coming in
the cover is already crack,
November 5, 2017
the cover is already crack ,out of the shipping box
November 3, 2017
After properly installing this cover, it lasted about 2 months until it suddenly lifted off and slid down the highway fortunately missing the other cars. It had been on for two months with no problem. I assume the clamps just got weak. The landing broke it so I will be getting a better one - a Truxedo!
Outta the box it was great. Went on in less than 15 minutes
May 4, 2016
Outta the box it was great. Went on in less than 15 minutes. Second time I folded it up and used my bed I unfolded it, tried buckling it down and the little plastic piece on the "bolt" broke. I have yet to engage with the company but needless to say the piece should not have broken.
Doesn't operate great with the newest GM bed
June 2, 2015
Ok for the cost, but would spend more for different brand. This seems to be more of a universal top. Doesn't operate great with the newest GM bed style

September 21, 2017
My wife bought this cover for me based on the review we had read... Big mistake. I did not expect much for the price in the first place but here goes...IT DOES NOT FIT CORRECTLY! It does not line up even, and the hinges where it folds, the vinyl looks shoddy and does not line up. I followed the instructional video from Tyger and the thing would not even lay flat. The craftsmanship is poor and does not really look like it was designed to fir the truck as they claim. Save your money and get a REAL brand or do what I am, Gator BakFlip G2.MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT! Oh I forgot to mention, we ordered it overnight, UPS had a problem and did not get it out on time, so the purpose for which it was originally needed is no longer (14 days to get here). Off to the return!!
Bad vinyl, had hole in it when I first opened it.
November 12, 2016
I have seen a lot of great reviews about this product and that's why I purchased one for my truck, but when I received my cover I placed it on the truck and unfolded it and on the first panel closest to the truck there was a cut in the so-called high-strength vinyl where the rear latch handle was hitting the panel. I know they have a warranty but you have to take all sorts of pictures send them in and then you have to pay to ship the old one back and hope that the new one doesn't have the same problem so I'm just going to cut my losses now and keep this one until the hole is too big to be useful and then by myself a higher-quality tonneau cover. The only good thing I have to say about it is I have a 2016 Ram 1500 big horn and does fit nicely and looks good on it, the framework looks good and it does seal good.
most people seem pleased but I was missing parts and have fit issues.
September 8, 2016
Terrible fit and finish and missing parts. I went to the hardware store and got the weatherstripping and light just so I could get it on but I shouldn't have to spend extra money or time hunting down parts to complete the instal. That being said once it was on the fit and finish is not as good as my trifold and still isn't sitting right for my taste. this is another example of you get what you pay for.
