Flat tonneaus

I want a soft FLAT tonneau. I'm thinking about the one from CheckerPro.
It appears to be flat ( I hate the covered wagon look ) and flush mounted.
Does anyone have any experiance with these or other suggestions?

I was looking at a Truxedo for mine but it was like $400....are you kidding?

I'm not sure about the one you mentioned. I'm a little confused how a flat cover drains without getting puddles in it.

Mine has the bars, but they're really low....I can't stand the covered wagon look either but I'm really happy with mine. If the quad fit in the back of the truck, it would be a pain to have to take them out all the time...but I've only had it off once so, I guess it just depends what you're going to be doing with the truck too.

That one is also a possible. Is it the low profile version? It is a good bit more pricey than the Checker. Good looking truck. My previous ranger was a 95 Black Splash. Had a Pace-Edwards hard roll-top on it. Those have gone out of sight now.

I am sold on Access tonneaus, they make a new one that is even lower profile then the original, and it rolls up out of the way in about 3 seconds. It also has a lifetime warranty, I have had one since 2001 and I gave it to grant with my truck, but it shows no signs of where or anything.

I have a LeBra cover that I bought at Wal-Mart... it has the bows on it but there very low profile and you can barealy even notice them ... I personally think it looks sweet as hell and it was WAY cheaper then most other tonneaus that I looked at
