I have one in grey for the 2008 Hi-Hy. Like new, shrink wrapped, yours free if you come and pick it up (Devils Lake, ND). They are really worthless.

Thanks - but a bit far to drive for a worthless accessory! LOL
My 2011 Hi-Hy base model has cut-outs in the cargo area body moulding to attach the retractable cover. The retractable cover is substantial and of good quality, approx $200 - problem: it does not fit. I actually ordered two - both were 3" short on the left side - and it is definitely the correct part # for the 2011 Hi-Hy. This appears to be a manufacturing defect. I was told by the Toyota service dept that it "fits perfectly" in the gas model. The dealers have no idea why the retractable Cargo Cover does not fit the hybrid. I reported the issue to Toyota corporate - they have "documented the problem" for future reference, no answers or solutions for me. They said they rely on customers and enough complaints to pursue a problem...
So... Come on 2011 Highlander Hybrid base model owners - anyone out there tried to install the retractable Cargo Cover yet?

What do you mean "substantial"? This is the cover that rolls up, right? There is nothing there to be substantial.

By "substantial" I am referring to the housing that holds the retractable cover. It is solid - weighs approx 10 pounds. The quality is good. I just wish I could find one that actually fits.
