Opinions on bed cover!!! ASAP

Found this Fiberglass bed cover for sale by my house....350$......Do you think it matches the lines of the bed? If seen a couple that i dont like, and this one seems to match pretty good......

My soft cover is getting alittle old and ive always wanted a hard cover......
Im trying to negotiate the price....for the right price i might buy it today with cash.....



On this...

It'll look good. It's worth the money. Repainting cost me 200 bucks on mine so you've gotta take that into account.

I like that one. It's flatter than the A.R.E. Alot simpler looking. Get it.

The nice ones should just be C clamps that go under the bed rail. They usually always are. Mine is a drill in to the side of the bedrail and thankfully not the top. It is 6 1/4 inch holes that I wouldn't even notice if it weren't on.
