The RetraxPRO XR offers the most security and the best protection for the items in your truck bed. This aluminum tonneau cover has a snow load of 500 lbs and can withstand impacts and inclement weather. You can secure this retractable cover at any point along the rails with an easy-to-use, locking handle, all to ensure that your gear stays safe and protected. And accessory T-slots are built into the rails so you can add a ladder rack or roof rack to carry cargo above your bed without interrupting the functioning of the cover.

Smooth, Retractable Operation

Retrax sealed ball-bearing rollers

This tonneau cover retracts quickly and easily for complete truck bed access. It does this by gliding along the side rails with sealed ball-bearing rollers, which also prevent the cover from binding or retracting unevenly. The RetraxPRO XR has no joints or hinges that can wear out, freeze, or trap dirt. It does not need to be lubricated and it has no springs that can fail. Unlike other truck bed covers on the market, you won't have to struggle with pull straps, hook-and-loop fasteners, or snaps every time you open and close the cover.

Retrax pop-up handle

At the end of the cover, on the driver's side, there is a pop-up handle that makes it easy to slide the cover up and down the length of your truck bed with just one hand. The handle must be popped up for the tonneau to move, but you can push or pull the cover to guide it along the rails from either side of your truck.

Retrax spiral track system

When not in use, the cover rolls up into a space-saving storage canister at the bulkhead of your truck, so you'll never have to remove the tonneau to access your cargo. This canister has a unique spiral track system that keeps the cover from coming into contact with itself while it's retracted. This helps prevent wear and tear on the cover while you're opening and closing it.

Retrax canister with drain tube

With the cover fully retracted, the entire canister assembly only takes up a small portion of your truck bed. And the angled bottom of the canister gives you more space to slide long items or small gear underneath it.

Maximum Security and Protection for Your Cargo

Retrax lid covers key

When the RetraxPro XR is closed, potential thieves will find it nearly impossible to access the items in your truck bed. The locking handle is mounted flat and is concealed with a lid, keeping it well hidden from prying eyes. This flat, weather-guarded lid also keeps out dirt and debris to prevent internal corrosion in the keyhole, ensuring that the lock lasts longer and won't seize up.

Retrax lock and pop-up handle

To unlock the cover, lift the lid on the lock, insert and twist the key, and press the button to release the pop-up handle. Once the handle is up, you can slide the cover back.

Latch Retrax cover anywhere on rails

You can latch the cover at any position along the rails by pushing the handle back down. This lock-in-place feature enables you to carry long items that overlap your tailgate while still covering cargo, such as a tackle box, that's stored closer to the bulkhead of the truck.

Retrax cover operates independent of the tailgate

This cover is better at preventing cargo theft than soft covers, which can be cut open with a knife. It also cannot be pried up at the edges like some hard, folding covers. As a result, your cargo and truck bed are secure when this cover is closed and latched, as long as you lock your tailgate as well. Conveniently, the cover operates independent of the tailgate, so you can open and close the tailgate without touching the cover, and you can open and close the cover without disturbing the tailgate.

Retrax weather strip

To keep snow, water, and dust out of your bed, the tonneau cover includes weather stripping and foam seals. An automotive-grade weather strip ensures a firm, dependable seal along the bulkhead of your truck. Attached to the bottom of each side rail is a foam seal that conforms to the shape of your bed rails. These seals help to prevent any scratches on your bed rails as well as fill any gaps to keep your cargo from getting wet or dirty. The cover also overlaps the top of the tailgate for additional protection against intrusive dirt and debris.

Durable, Long-Lasting, and Attractive Cover

Retrax attractive cover

The RetraxPRO XR is constructed of heavy-duty aluminum slats that are 1" thick. They have excellent dent and impact resistance to keep the tonneau from getting damaged by falling debris or by thieves who attempt to break in by force. In addition, this cover can hold up to 500 lbs of snow or evenly distributed weight when it's rolled out. And on top of that, its durable matte black finish is weather and scratch resistant.

Retrax drain tube

To prevent mildew from forming on the cover while it's rolled up, the RetraxPRO XR features a water management system that channels excess water out of the storage canister. Two drain tubes attach to the bottom of the canister to remove any water that gets inside. The tubes then route water through the existing drain holes in the floor of your truck bed, ensuring that the stored cover remains as dry as possible.

Retrax flush design

When rolled out, this tonneau sits nearly flush with the back of the canister to give a streamlined look. In addition to the flush-mounted locking handle, the sleek frame features a top panel that overlaps the bulkhead of the truck and storage canister, eliminating the gap in between.

Retrax extends over 5th wheel

The low-profile side rails mount just 1" above your truck bed, which offers a sleek look while still providing enough clearance for most 5th-wheel hitches to remain installed beneath the cover.

Built-In Slots for Mounting Aftermarket Accessories

Retrax Trax Rail System

Integrated into the side rails of the RetraxPRO XR is a track system that you can use to mount your T-slot-compatible ladder rack or roof rack crossbars (sold separately). This way you can haul your bikes and other gear above your cover to free up your truck bed for additional cargo. This Trax Rail System does not interfere with the functionality of the retractable tonneau at all, so you'll still be able to use the cover while your racks are mounted.

To see if your specific Thule, Yakima, or Rhino Rack T-slot-compatible ladder rack or roof rack will work with this tonneau, please refer to the alternate instructions link at the bottom of this page.

Easy, No-Drill Installation

Retrax installation parts

To install the RetraxPRO XR, begin by attaching the side rails to the canister with the provided screws.

Retrax installation

Because the cover comes preinstalled inside of the canister, it will take 2 people to lift the assembled unit and place it on your truck. Once the cover is in position, make sure that the side rails are square on your truck bed rails. Then secure them in place with the bolt-on clamps. Finally, install the drain tubes in the canister and route them through the factory holes in your truck bed.

The Retrax Pro HR and Yakima Overhaul HD is a perfect combo and works well together.


I like the design and the convenience of not flipping it. It's not completely water proof as I'd like. The rails for the the Thule mounts and bike rack are awesome!!


Thanks etrailer. Ordered the Yakima Overhaul ladder racks and the Retrax tonneau cover. It’s the perfect solution for our camping/kayaking trips. Both products are solid and top notch. Installation was a breeze on my 20 Tundra.


Love everything about the cover except.... Retrax should put a clear tape on the back lip. It’s an easy place to chip the powder coat and some clear tape would have kept it perfect after a year. Otherwise I couldn’t be happier. If you purchase one I would suggest doing what I think the manufacturer should have done to begin with.


It leaks in the rain - having a local shop look at it this week. Leaks a bit on the side but it's also leaking on top in a couple of areas - was hoping it would be a bit more waterproof for the inside of the truck


Order was processed quickly and arrive in the specified shipping time. Easy two person install and fine tuning is an easy one person job. Great quality top and rugged. Perfect top for your pickup. Bed stays water tight so storing sleeping bags or luggage is no problem on long trips.


Retrax Pro XR with Rhino Rack Cross Bar set for the XR

This has greatly simplified my bicycle transport. Before I was using separate ladder rack on back of trailer, and hitch rack on truck. Compared with my prior setup, here are the improvements:
-- removes ~75 lbs from back of my trailer
-- not dealing with separate truck and camper bike racks (esp hitch rack taking up bed room while towing)
-- don't have to unload bikes to check something on camper roof
-- bikes are easier to load (even with lifting)
-- cross bars detach in seconds and lift off for full bed access or car wash (the cross bar and bike rack assembly stores on hook in garage)
-- Don't have to remove and store bike seats (they extended well past right side of trailer when on ladder rack)
-- Bikes are more protected above tonneau cover than either on hitch rack or ladder rack.


Well designed and durable tonneau cover. Easy to install and works like a charm a year later. Highly recommend if you have the $$.


My first impression is that this is one heavy duty and sturdy Tonneau cover. I'll put an emphasis on the word heavy. I have an 8 foot bed on my 2022 Silverado 3500HD and this added significant weight to the top and a bit to the rails. Assembly took two of us and we had one more set of hands to set it in place during installation. My estimate is that the assembled weight is about 120 pounds. No issues with the overall installation, and watching the several online and the Etrailer videos helped. It took us three hours to assemble and install it. However, there was a cracked 2"x2" area on one of the plastic side covers of the box that houses the rolled-up cover. Apparently this cracked / broke during shipping. I fixed this during assembly rather than delay installation. I was a bit surprised that vulnerable and brittle plastic material was used for construction of this component. The box itself is metal. I reinforced it with a 4"x4" metal plate and plastic epoxy to support the mounting bolt at the center of the broken plastic piece. Much stronger than new. A photo was taken of the cracked area that can be supplied to Retrax if they are interested. Otherwise, I'm pleased with the cover. It was simple to align and adjust. Looks great, and the fit is perfect. It works smoothly, but does require some muscle power to pull it out of the front box to close it. Opening is effortless as it glides into the box at the front of the bed. Hopefully it will provide years of service.


Showed up quickly, this is the 3rd purchase from, they have great customer service, they know their products, prices are reasonable and they ship fast. I also purchased the Curt Hitch from them.


Terri from etrailer was most helpful with helping me select a Tonneau cover and rack for my vehicle that I could get within a specific time frame. I did not realize a kit to mount the rack to the tonneau cover was required until later that day. I emailed and called Terri panicking because the kit was showing out of stock until the end of October and we were moving in September. When I spoke to Terri she had realized that I needed the kit and somehow was able to procure one. The rack and adaptor kit arrived 2 or 3 days later. The Tonneau cover is shipping directly from the factory and has not yet been received to review. I highly recommend Terri and etrailer and would definitely purchase from them again. Matt M.


Customer service 5 star.
UPS 3 star.
(came damaged 2 times)


This product is awesome. It was super easy to install and functions flawlessly. The roll up method of operation is the reason I bought it and it work perfectly. Highly recommend.


Excellent option for my purposes !
to haul kayaks and bikes on load bars , while 5th wheel hitch , along with other gear is securely locked in the bed .


Overall the product is good. The only thing that I have a little issue was the water drainage hose could have been built little sturdy. May be I missed something, but it keeps on popping out from the retractor box. Besides that it's great.


I have a local dealer I normally buy my truck accessories from. For the RetraxPro XR they quoted me $800.00 more than I could get from etrailer. Drawback was I had to install it myself. I liked the fact that I didn't have to drill any holes into my truck's bedrails so I decided to put it on myself. I followed the instructions and adjusted everything the way I was told. 45 mins later, it was installed by myself and haven't had to re-adjust since. I always have people ask me about it. It looks great, operates easily, doesn't freeze up in the winter months, locks in any position and is a great addition to my truck accessories. Purchasing it from etrailer was simple, saved me a lot of money and arrived with no damage. I now look to etrailer for my truck and RV accessories. I've had to contact them in the past for different items and the support is wonderful. Thanks etrailer...


I purchased this cover for my 2020 F-350 standard bed truck because I tow a fifth wheel RV and didn't want to gamble on a folding or roll-up cover that may or may not get in the way. The loss of bed space is certainly a down side, but I think the ruggedness and secure feel make up for it. The next challenge I have is living in Michigan with the snow and ice combined with not regularly keeping my truck inside a heated garage. The cover gets snow and ice build up on it which makes it very challenging to open. This isn't really a complaint, just something for potential buyers to think about.

My one issue with this cover is the high price combined with this cover having some water intrusion issues. It definitely leaks at the corners where the side rails, retractable cover and tailgate all come together. It also leaks from somewhere else causing water to drip on my 5th wheel hitch. I cannot tell if it is leaking between the actual slats, or if maybe it is leaking from the bedrail somewhere and running down the slats underneath and then dripping down. Regardless, for the price, I had hoped for the cover to be more waterproof without the need to investigate time troubleshooting leaks and trying to correct them.


The tonneau cover housing arrived damaged even though it was packed properly. The manufacturer sent a replacement part that arrived one week later, but I was required to actually repair the product myself. Not the best experience with Retrax. Once repaired the installation was fairly easy except for the drains which don't fit into the opening correctly and are very difficult to install as they won't stay in place. Also, the cover leaks water on the passenger side.


It helps to have an individual customer service representative, Terri N is my go to representative for all my etrailer purchasing. Terri follows my orders throughout the process, and follows up after delivery.
Ordering the Retrax Pro Xr was not different, I am usually on a timeline and cannot wait weeks for the standard delivery process; the Retrax Pro XR was delivered in less that a week. Two boxes, well packed, and protected arrived, ready for installation. Installation took around 1 1/2 hours, with most of it being done by myself. You will need another body to lift the unit into the truck bed, after that it is an easy process of alignment and anchoring. I had to adjust my rail width, to get under the maximum allowed dimensional tolerance.
As the instruction indicated the unit will loosen after a few uses; still requiring some effort to slide it, but that is a good thing.
It is very well made, with a clean fit and finish.


I had a solid tonneau before and liked it. Only problems with it were you could not drive with the cover up and it was a bear to remove even with the help of my wife. That truck was totaled by a drunk driver. So the replacement truck had to have an easier cover and wile I was at it, why not some racks as well?
It looks great! Fits perfectly and was a synch to install.
On the down side it is not completely dry and it did freeze up once in the winter. Other than that I do like it and gave it 4 stars


Great cover for a 2020 Ram 1500. I primarily use it to haul my bikes and kayaks around, and it's awesome for keeping gear secure. If you have the multifunction tailgate, you have to do a little extra work, but there is a great YT video that walks you through it. I was able to install the whole thing in about an hour. It pairs great with the Yakima racks (also purchased here), too. Service from etrailer was great both times. Pricey but totally worth it.
