'06 F150 Short bed 5'6", with a nice truck box, single door that opens from the rear side... Bed Liner, and I've added some tie down cleats on the inner edges of the bed near the 4 corners... The open space is 56"x62"...

Like to cover it, not particularly for weather, just keep stuff out of sight, make a smoother surface, maybe help mileage...

Debating making a solid, wood cover, but then what, paint? Maintenance I don't need...

Maybe just have one made or make one by cutting one down, use bungees... But knowing that the wind may cause it to flap, buzz, maybe not so good.. I'm thinking I need a front support rod, some way to secure that, then bungee to the tailgate or eyes on the tailgate..

All the commercial tonneau covers I see don't get along with a truck box, other than one also included their own box...
