Protection from Weather for your Payload
A bed cover will protect your truck contents and the truck bed itself from rain, sleet, snow and hail. Your truck bed cover will also protect the contents from blowing around or blowing out of the truck due to wind.
Security and Theft Protection
Leaving tools, materials or other exposed contents in an open truck bed is practically an invitation to thieves. Tonneau covers and toppers offer increased security, not only because thieves don’t steal what they can’t see, but also because the time it would take to open or remove a truck bed cover would also discourage theft.
Improved Aerodynamics and Gas Mileage – This is a HUGE advantage for pick-up truck owners because truck bed covers significantly reduce drag (wind resistance). Pick-up trucks are wonderful vehicles, but because of their open truck beds, they are not aerodynamic or fuel efficient. By adding a tonneau cover or topper to your truck, air slides easily off the cover rather than getting trapped in the bed and creating drag. One of the greatest advantages of a tonneau cover is that it will immediately improve gas mileage as a result of the aerodynamic improvement you gain by covering your truck bed. Industry experts report as much as a 10% increase in fuel economy – even with soft tonneau covers!
