Let’s look at the cover styles that are available and a few tips to ensure you get the right solution for your vehicle and needs.
How Do You Use Your Truck?
Before you go shopping for a truck bed cover, decide what you want it to do. If you’re a contractor and keep your tools in the truck, then a cover that provides security will be a top priority. If you need access to the entire length of the bed, a soft-top roll-up cover will get out of the way quickly so you can load up. Think about your weekly and monthly routine, then come talk to us. We’ll help find the right fit.
Soft covers are made of premium-grade vinyl and most include an aluminum frame that attaches to the sides of the bed. These covers are very reasonably priced and do a reasonable job of protecting the bed contents from the elements. Soft covers are available in roll-up, folding and hinged styles.
Hard covers come in three styles: one piece, roll-up and multi-panel folding. The biggest benefit of a hard cover is the security it offers. Unlike a soft cover that can be cut with a sharp knife, hard covers are made of aluminum or composite materials. Many hard covers include locks with dedicated keys.
Roll-up covers are usually made from extruded aluminum strips that link together. They roll up into a compact enclosure at the back of the bed. The in-bed enclosures range from 12 to 16 inches in length. Some designs use a smaller canister that mounts on top of the bed and are less than 10 inches deep.
Folding covers are divided into three or four panels that fold up to provide access to the bed. You can flip one up to load a few items or all of them for something larger. Folding covers offer good weather protection and are easily removed if you need access to the entire bed.
One-piece covers offer the best protection against water and debris. These covers are typically hinged at the back of the bed and include gas shocks to hold the cover up while you are loading or unloading. If you need to remove a one-piece cover, you’ll need a friend to give you a hand.
