    I am based in Bataan and have been calling to monitor availability of Carryboy's roller lid but to no avail upto now.

    I am now leaning towards the casa, another Thailand made lid. Would appreciate feedbacks on the quality of of the casa distributed lid.

    Price of Carryboy -- SRP 31K
    Price in the Mits- casa -- SRP 31K

    Will also appreciate if you can provide feedback for carryboy lid.

    BAKA MAY IBANG BRAND PA DYAN, PAKI SUYO/INFO NA RIN PARA MASURI KO.

    TIA.

    Kung sa akin lang I prefer Carryboy, at makakakuha pa ng price discount by haggling a little bit .

    Kung roller lid, aside from Carryboy, Pace Edwards may also have one for our Strada just try to enquire from RIDE sa Banawe at baka may iba pang brand available sila.

    Ganda ng Pace Edwards but has a premium price haaay..

    Carryboy pa rin ang pasok sa budget and swak sa eyes ko for the looks department but when I checked last Saturday sa Carryboy and official outlets nila sa Banawe (Genevive). Fast seller nila ang Strada and Hilux.. may stock na kaya sa Carryboy??

    Sir, are you aware that roller lids have minimal (daw) leaks? That is why I chose to have the sportlid and not this roller lid.

    Thanks --I am also looking the sports lid (black plastic) of RIDE, Inc as my long shot option... my concern is my bikes; I will no be able to carry all my bikes if I decided to go for this. I like the plastic black cover of RIDE, straight forward design - price less than Php30,000.00

    As for the minimal leak - I will put important items in a plastic box; plastic box this is being sold nowadays very cheap at SM stores.

    This is from my personal experience.

    When I bought my Dmax some 2 years back, I wanted to put a cover on the bed. I scouted for different covers and I was intrigued by this new product of Carryboy named Roller Lid. My other truck uses a Pace Edwards and, it's not really water tight, the hardship of pulling/pushing and locking/unlocking it when you have to put/get something in and from the bed is somewhat annoying especially if itís raining, it's made of a soft aluminum bars so when some kids decided to sit on it, the possibility of snapping is very high.

    I called Carryboy and inquired more on that Roller Lid and as usual, I asked how water tight it is, how about the quality, just the simple what, how and if. They told us to go to their shop to see it first hand. To cut the story short, I found it very nice so I decided to go on that one.

    Initial findings:

    Pros:
    - Itís very convenient since everything is done with just a push of a button or a remote.
    - The material is sturdier as compared to Pace Edwards.
    - The design is very impressive. I like how the whole flat cover looks on the bed.
    - You donít need to lock and unlock it since the mechanism is strong enough to hold it close even if you donít lock it.

    Cons:
    - It is not watertight. Under the rain, the difference with Pace Edwards is virtually none. Expect that the bed will get totally wet especially if it gets exposed under the rain during long hours. When they were installing mine, a Hilux owner brought back his coz when they went out of town, their things got totally soaked even with that Lid closed so he said he brought it back for them to check if there are any leaks. They replaced his with a new Lid.
    - Lots of drilling on the bed to put those hoses to minimize the water drippings on the bed.
    - The remote control is quite tricky for the first few uses.
    - The module might get cumbersome even in the process of installation. Why? Imagine when they were installing it, they already replaced the module, if my mind serves me correctly, 2x and the remote, I think 2x too. For the simple reason that itís not working. It wonít retract or extract or lock and unlock.
    - And the worst part of all, it wonít fully retract all the way to end or edge of its base. From the base, it will stop at around 5 to 6 inches before it reaches its base. So, if you want to fully utilize the capacity of the bed, you canít unless you put something shorter that would fit under the lid.


    I have learned to live with its cons for more than 2 years but last July, I donít have any idea what happened, it didnít want to function anymore. Everytime I tried to close it, it would just produce this continuous popping-metal to metal sound. It sounded like something is not engaging at the base. I donít have the time yet to have it fixed so up to now that Roller Lid is totally useless. This is the time that I wished I had gone with Pace Edwards. The Pace Edwards with my other truck is still fully functional and no signs of breaking down anytime soon and to think it was installed a year or 2 before the Roller Lid. The reason why that got broken was when kids decided to make it as their playground leaving me with snapped bars.

    The Roller Lid cost me if I am not mistaken, around P36k+ but that was their 2008 price.

    If youíll ask me if I still want to put a new Roller Lid in case the damage in my current Lid is unfixable, my answer would be ďForget it.Ē


    In the end, itís up to you if you wanna try it.

    Same thing that happened to my mom's officemate. Hers was a carryboy roller lid, she placed her paper works inside her Ford Ranger's bed and closed her roller lid and when she arrived at their office, BOOM! She was shouting and cursing her roller lid because her paper works got soaked.

    She put her paper works on the bed? Oh my, that's a big no no especially if it's raining. Might as well bid goodbye to your paper works.hehe If it's just drizzle, the chance of the bed getting wet is very minimal.

    For me, what I do when we go to our province and it's rainy, I always ask my passengers if their bag is water proof. If not, we arrange it in a way that it's not on the bed floor. And for sacks of rice, we put woods on the bed so that they will touch the bed floor and wrap with plastics so even if the water seeps, the plastic will prevent them from getting wet.

Your Opinion - Roller Lid Purchase; Carryboy or from the Mits-Casa
