Default ReTrax/GatorTrax Bed Cover: Best Place to Buy

We are finalizing a deal with TonyG at Moritz Chevrolet to buy my bride a new pickup (with 208,000 miles on her 10 year old Suburban, it's time!) and I want to outfit it with a tonneau cover - likely ReTrax or Gator Trax. I'll be searching the usual suspects and online, but I'm curious if anybody has found anywhere with awesome deals? I'll be travelling to Cstat, DFW, Austin, SA and Houston within the next several days, so options for location are pretty open. Of course, ordering online remains an option, as well.

Retrax and Gatortrax are the same cove. Retrax private labels them for Gator.

They wouldn't be able to get it by this weekend when I'm driving up to get the vehicle.

Get the aluminum version. I now need to replace my second lexan cover. I'll be buying the aluminum to slide in soon.

Check these guys out. I have one on my F-250 and it is bulletproof, much stronger than any other I have seen.

Another thing that sold me on it is that it has the smallest "roll-up box" made. So when you need your bed open you have more of it to use.

They are not cheap but are worth it in my opinion.

Looks like a good one, but I'm not a fan of a pull strap.

How much do shops charge for labor on one of these things(I know it will vary), if its outrageous I may try and do it myself as they seem fairly easy to install.

By most accounts theyíre pretty easy to install (with two people.) Iíll likely do it myself.

I had a RetraxPro (aluminum version) on my truck I sold a couple years ago. I loved it! I ordered mine factory direct from Retrax. They shipped it straight to me and I had it installed in a couple hours. It was pretty easy from what I recall. I'd be happy to come down to Hallettsville and help you out if you need it.
