I bought a Paragon cover for my truck and it has some good and bad to it. The good is that it's solid and is made in The United States of America with American labor and is an American owned company. The owner is very helpful and friendly, so if you have any problems or questions, call them and you'll be put at ease. The cover also has a nice lock. Between the locked cover and the tailgate lock, I don't worry about expensive tools or parts getting stolen. Also the price is awesome. I got mine for $599.00 over a year ago. It is certainly worth the money.
There are some cons. One is that if anything slides forward in the bed and gets in the way of the track, the cover will not open and you have to climb in and move whatever got in the way. An easy fix for this is cutting a 2x4, 2x8 or 2xwhatever and fitting it into the provided slots in the side of the bed to keep things from sliding forward and getting in the way. Another is that the cover does take up a few inched of bed space, but that is minor for some people. The last thing I don't care about on this cover is how the track extends beyond the inside of the bed, so you can not carry anything heavy against the track because it could cause damage. If you stack something like hay over the side rails, it can and will bend the rails down, but they are very easy to push back into place.
I think if I was to purchase another cover in the future I might look a bit closer at the ones that flip up and are made of fiberglass, which can be color matched to the truck. The only problem with these is the cost is much higher than the Peragon.
Overall Peragon is a very good product but not for everybody.
