Looking for a cover for a long bed Ranger

I'm looking for an easier cover for the fiances long bed (7') Ranger. The soft cover with all around button snaps is extremely tiresome, especially in the cold. It's impossible for her to stretch enough to snap the back row (or whatever row is left) and exhausting to put on any time of the year by herself when she needs to take it on and off for cargo. I'm looking for a budget friendly preferably hard cover. I might by used if I can but just trying to get ideas. I see some covers for like 1200$ and that's just out of the question for a simply cover. Even if it's soft again there's got to be a better mounting system than 50 snap buttons.

Looking for ideas for a 2007 Ranger regular cab XL long bed with the 2.3L I4.

Thanks!

I just didn't like the quality versus what I saw for the price, so I built my own......aircraft grade aluminum sheets & 1" square stock.
