I sometimes haul big stuff so I opted not to get a tonneau cover. But, I have two children and the trunk is too small for all of our luggage. So, I am using a soft "car top" luggage carrier. It's set up like a dry bag. Rubber coated canvas with all seams taped and waterproof zippers. It cost about $150.00 and combined with the trunk storage, it will handle all of our luggage and more. We will put valuables (laptop, camera, etc) along with most luggage in the trunk. The rest (clothes, boogie boards) we will put along with the suitcases) in the dry bag. It fits perfectly inside the bed and covers the area from the front of the bed back to the front seam of the trunk. When packed, it does not show over the sides of the truck. Am going to the beach next week and will let you know how it turns out. We thought this was a compromise to a cover.
