hi ridgeline freaks and geeks! We love our Ridgeline so far. We have less than 2000 miles on it so we haven't really tested it yet. The reason I'm blurry eyed is because I've been reading this forum and trying to find the best tonneau cover for the money. Has anyone seen the one on ebay sold by AutoAccessories Super store. It looks like just what I want but theres not much info on it. They're asking $439-free shipping. Thought I'd ask y'all about it before I contacted them. Lots of people here have researched this topic more than I but I'm planning a trip to the west coast at the end of Feb. so I gotta get movin'! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome aboard nwksridgeline! I have not seen the one that you referred to. There is a lot of good information here on the ROC about tonneau covers. It sounds like you may have found most of it. Before you jump in and buy a cover, especially sight unseen, consider how you actually will be using bed and the in-bed trunk. If you think that you will need to have frequent access to them, then a hard cover like the Honda OEM cover that lifts up or the Retrax that rolls up may be the best choice. If you rarely need to get into the bed and taking a minute or two to unfasten and re-fasten, then the soft covers may be a good choice.
Once you think through how you will be living with your truck, the bed and a cover, the choice as to what type of cover will become clear. Then you need to consider the complexity of the installation and if there will be permanent modifications (holes) required. After that, it's just a matter of which one you like the best. All of the covers that I have read about on the ROC seem to be very good quality, they are just different. I am sure that you will choose one that best suits your needs. It does sound like you have done some considerable reading of posts and threads so I am sure that you are aware that none of them are 100% water tight, but most are pretty close to it. Sorry that I couldn't help you with the one that you inquired about. I will try to find it and let you know if I see anything that jumps out about it. if you post a link to where I can find it we all can take a look.
Once again, welcome!
