Product Analysis
Lund’s Tri-Fold Tonneau cover shipped to my door in a rather large box, but the cover was fully assembled and ready for install. The cover is made of light weight aluminum and can be installed by one person.

Installation Analysis
Installation was pretty straight forward as Lund provided easy to follow instructions. I opened the box and removed the cover, it was fully assembled.


I then positioned the cover on the truck, aligning it so that it unfolds toward the rear of the truck bed. Then make sure it is centered on the bed rails.


The cover uses adjustable cam action locking clamps to keep the cover securely to the bed rails.

Cam clamps stored..


In position, but unlocked


In position and locked


There are two pinch buckles that keep the cover folded. This allows the cover to be folded and still remain on the truck, allowing hauling of taller cargo.


Unbuckle these two buckles, then unfold the cover.
Once…

Then again…


Then lock down the final two cam clamps.


And shut the tailgate


Overall Opinion
I purchased my Tri-Fold back in summer of 2008 from AutoAnything.com Lund Genesis Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover. I’ve had nothing but excellent experiences from AutoAnything. The Lund Tri-Fold has given me excellent service. It is very easy to take off and put back on. The vinyl has held up to cold weather into the teens, and heat into the 110’s and is still in one piece. The aluminum frame is both lightweight and strong, I can rest things on top of it including my tool box and not worry about it giving out. Only cons I have found about this cover is that either it is not square, or my truck bed is not square, since no matter how much I try to center the cover, it is always off a bit. But that is minor since it still covers the bed rails and I have not noticed water getting into the bed. The other minor problem is that the weather stripping hasn’t held up very well over the years. It has gotten very thin and even has pealed off if high stress areas.


This could probably be easily fixed with some new weather stripping. But I have not noticed water getting into the bed.

Over all, I am very pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone. Sure, the price is a bit high, but it is a great product with excellent quality.

none i've noticed

That's a big plus because all my covers have had leaks and this one is no exception.
I need to add french drains to my bed. No laugh, when I pull out of my driveway and look back it looks like someone just drained a swimming pool.
