Piece of mind also comes at a cost - I’ll never have worry about anyone cutting or tearing into my cover. It’s aluminum and will never rust. I’ve also installed the built in toolboxes so have storage space up and out of the way of the bed space where I can keep tools, straps, etc. 9 times out of 10 if I have something that one would “typically need the bed for” I could either flip one of the panels and make it work or load the items on top of the panel since they’re rated for a good amount of weight - which I have a hard time believing any other cover on the market can match.I prefer value over "quality", especially when in reality there's not that much difference in quality. I can go through almost 6 TruXedos for the cost of one of those. And TruXedo goes completely out of the way in an instant.
to each his own.
