Check fender pick-up
https://www.facebook.com/fenderpickups/

They have roll n lock, retrax, backflip, and other brands

I have the rollNlock on mine
No issues, just leaks a lil bit on each corner.

Retrax and roll n lock are around 10k each
Everything else is regressively cheaper and quality will match the pricing

From a personal standpoint
I like the roll n lock
My van had one intsalled in 2012
Van beat weather for 6years
I sold it, padna has it on his van ATM
He changed the retraction spring when i took it off
And last year he changed the leather covering
But everything is still functioning proper

Personally, i would prefer an all aluminum cover vs the marine leather for our climate

But they all leak somewhere
The only cover i see that dont leak is those hard-lid ones that cover the entire tray

THanks!

I think we're on the same wavelength here.
RNL doh make the A Series (anodised alum only) for export market according to Fender Imports.
The M series (vinyl cover) is the only option.

The other brand all alum ones seem thinner gauge, have larger cannisters or just have various complaints online. My concern was the RNL vinyl cover, as I'll be the same. Weather right thru. Might just invest in a good marine protectant and apply every week or couple weeks because I real slack with washing van.

I think I'll go with the RNL.

I have a pace edwards, the top vinyl unstick a little after 5 years, luckily it didnt tangle up like how some ppl do
if it unsticks and tangles up it will damage the framer layer and then is problems.
The heat is what hardens the glue and makes it unstick.

I kinda fixed it myself with 3m vhb tape but then it started to unstick more so I took it by Neil in Cunupia who replaced the vinyl and it still good.

The pace edwards doesnt really leak, the water runs into the side rails and down to the front where hoses carry it out.
Only at back edge it can leak a little when lip meets tailgate.

I have seen the Retrax one by Neil and it seems like a nicer one.
Best to talk to Neil, he does a lot of them as well as repairs.

There is the 303 protectant for the vinyl.
They used to actually include a bottle with the tray cover in the earlies
You can get it at budget marine or handyman store (iirc)
