    Hi All

    Hope i will not get in to trouble for this. we needed a tonneau cover for our GMC Sierra with an 8ft bed. We tried most suppliers of these american made covers ie Extang. including extang suppliers in the UK, who it seems only supply Covers for Euro Pickups.

    I then found americanvehicleparts.co.uk who said that they could get the part for me (Extang Trifecta Tonneau Cover GMC 2500HD 8ft Bed. It would take upto 3 weeks to arrive from states. So on 4th Jan ordered said item and sat back to wait for 3 weeks on 11th Jan had a phone call from Mark at americanvehicleparts to say that the item had arrived and would be delivered to me on 12th Jan and it was.

    Excellent Company & Service

    Only down side cost was £600 but keeps the snow and water out the bed!

    That is a nice looking tonneau cover.

    £600 is quite reasonable IMHO.
    One question though.........is it lockable?

    Thanks

    Hi Ant and Debs
    I have found that when I have ordered American spares or accessories for this and my previous RV they have arrived promptly and at a fair price considering their source.
    On the other hand when getting parts for Euro manufactured cars they seem to take an age to get, dunno why

    Hi Rob

    Its a goodun takes seconds to put on and no push studs just 4 clamps 2 at front and 2 at rear, there is a way to put padlocks into pulldown clips. so hopefully do the job. Any luck with your rig yet? We have just moved into a Holiday Bungalow in
    Bexhill on Sea for 2 weeks as our static site is shut for 6 weeks , hoping to pick up unit in 2 weeks then head down to spain.


    Regards

    Well I have had interest in both the 5'er and the pick up, in fact I have got some folks coming over next weekend to view the 5'er.
    Not been able to get on to the storage site due to snow but should be good for next weekend.
    As usual I have loads of watchers on ebay, :Doh: but if they are interested they need to get a move on as I am coming under pressure to sort out funding for our place in Portugal and I will strike a deal very quickly.

    Regarding the pick up, I am not sure I want to sell it after the way it has behaved in the snow, it has been just fantastic, I have got through depths of snow that I really did not expect to. :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    I am thinking of getting it "wrapped" and keeping it. Will let you know how that goes.......I bet you can't wait to get going now.

    Regards to you both

    Rob

    I bet you cannot wait after this atrocious weather.:thumb:

    I am in discussion with Paul, ideally I want to sell outright, so am considering various offers and things.
    I am going to find it tough to sell the pick up, again in the melt water today it has been fantastic. I did not believe it could wade that deep, best go and hose it down methinks :BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:
