Anybody happen to have a rollnlock m series and know what the shipping weight is. Trying to decide if I should get the heavy spring kit for my truck in the rear from Carli, but says must carry 500lbs to maintain ride quality. Spray in liner is 40ish. Thinking the cover is easy 200lbs so half way there, but not sure. I carry easily 500lbs of gear in the back for work, but worried when it's empty the ride will be too rough.
Our shipping notes on the M say it is 100lbs.

Retrax PowertraxPro MX tonneau, Bedrug and factory spray-in liner. Works well for us since with the higher truck and Ramboxes it's a lot harder to reach the handle of a manual one, pushing a button is where it's at!

Hate spray ins…sandpaper bottoms shred hard case suitcases and such. I swear by the DualLiner. It’s a solid fit, the rubber bed pad fits perfectly with the sidewalls. It also drains surprisingly well. I get a topper soon so that point is moot.

No way would I ever consider a DualLiner ... just as bad as the drop in ones from factory, too much water gets trapped in there and is doing nothing to protect against rust, in fact you are increasing the chances of rust because of all the trapped water down there ....

I just detailed a Ford Raptor with a DualLiner, 7 months old and it was already showing oxidation from the DualLiner it has, I showed the owner what it looked and he is going to get it sprayed ... I'm actually probably going to be doing it for him as soon as he puts together the money for it ....

Hello just asking for opinions about tonneau covers or spray on bed liners. Positives & negatives for each one. And what brand is the best, best for the money?
My first truck (1500) had a really good spay on liner professionally done and while it was pretty damned ruff it was nice to have so as to not show dust & dirt. I had a tonneau roll up (not mechanical roll up) it was simple and soft and did what it was designed to do, keep the bed clean. Its inexpensive and looked great and can be rolled into a 6 inch log. I wasn't in and out of bed much so it served my purposes. My new 2500 has same set up! Love it.

I love mine, I did it myself with raptor bedliner and just added the gator cover .... can't go wrong with spray on bedliners ...

I honestly don't care for the quality of Bak Industries tri-fold covers but loved having a bed cover. My new to me Ram sits too high for a tri-fold (and it's completely stock). I'm 6' and it would be hard for me reach the middle section latch to fold it back. I'm looking at a cover that rolls back. Want a hard cover. Soft covers are too easy to cut open.

Even with toppers, if you got that bed dirty you would have to remove everything to clean underneath, debris still gets under there and water will too eventually ..... with the spray on you can add a rubber mat over it and you get the protection to both your bed and your valuables like the suit cases and such ...but hey if it works for you that is all that matters ....

I see your point but let me ask you…If I have a topper and my bed was spotless when I install my DualLiner, how would it get dirty and why would I pull up the mat to check? I’m a lifetime truck owner, always used a bed mat with topper. My Taco bed was perfect after 5.5 years, 3 of those without a topper. A spray in seems a silly waste of finances considering.
