Hey, guys. Sara from americantrucks.com and today, we have a review and install of the Rough Country Soft Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover fitting, your '07 to '13 Chevy Silverado.This cover features a three-ply, double coated vinyl in a black finish. This cover is constructed from 6061 aluminum rails and features weather sealing as well as additional weather stripping to keep your truck bed protected from the elements. This tonneau utilizes a quick clamp fastening system and works with your truck's tailgate lock. The Rough Country Tonneau folds and unfolds in seconds as well as installs and uninstalls in seconds, allowing you to make the most of your truck bed, whether open or closed.This cover is going to come in at right around $260, making it a great entry level option as far as tonneaus go. However, if you've seen Justin's video, you know that any soft cover is not really gonna protect against thieves. However, if you're looking for a great method to cover your truck bed and protect it from the elements, this cover is gonna be the one to pick.I'm giving this install a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. This can be done in about 10 minutes. It's a very simple clamping design and it's gonna do no damage to your truck.Okay, so the first step in this install is to grab our tonneau and get lined up with our truck bed. You can do this by yourself, but you might wanna grab a partner. It makes it go a lot faster.Okay, so Rough Country has included some weatherstripping to use at the back of the bed, if you need it. We're not gonna need it here because the back of the bed is even with the side of the bed, and our seal that's already attached to our tonneau is gonna work fine to seal it. But it is a great option to have if your truck bed will not seal on its own. Also they've included this plastic hardware and we will use this. This is how the tonneau attaches to your bed. This bracket is gonna go on first and it's gonna face out like this. This groove here is gonna go onto the edge of our bed. Next, you wanna add this spacer and, finally, this plastic knob. This knob threads on and we wanna just get it started a little bit. We're gonna finish adjusting it once it's down on our bed. So with our cover down, we can line up this bracket. You wanna make sure you take this notch right here and tuck it underneath the bed. Now, we're gonna tighten this knob around here so that the cover is nice and tight to our bed.Okay. Moving on to our other side, we're gonna do the exact same thing, making sure this notch is lined up with the side of the bed. We can go ahead and start tightening this down. Now, a good thing to remember is that this cover has quite a bit of adjustability, so if you're not liking how something's lining up or it seems a little bit off, there's a lot of changes that you can make to these brackets and where the cover sits.Now that our tonneau is secured at the front of the bed, we can go ahead and flip it out and attach the two brackets at the back.Pressing down on the outside of our tonneau, we can now hook up this last bracket. This one again has a lot of adjustability like the front. You're gonna wanna loosen and tighten it as needed, then pull this up and go ahead and latch the bed. Now, we can go ahead and do the other side.All right. So, in the same manner, we're gonna wanna latch the other side. And if we need a little bit more adjustability, go ahead and tighten it till we get a good seal.All right, guys. That is gonna do it for the review and install of our Rough Country Tonneau Cover. Remember, for all things Silverado, keep it at americantrucks.com.
