This one looks taut:

Where this one looks much looser.

Is that a real difference or a trick of the light?

The tailgate bulkhead looks to be an opportunity to tension it. Fold into place and then pull back a fraction of an inch on the trailing edge.
What suprised me was that it seemed to "inflate" into a nice rounded shape.
There is a trailing step edge of 2-3" at the cab. It's reaching for the shape it wants to be. Is there room in the folding mechanism for curved front edges? Do you have a picture of the bare frame erected?
