You're the kind of person who always wants to weigh pros and cons before making a big decision, or in this case, a big purchase. So, it’s understandable that you want to know all of the facts, including the pros & cons of a tonneau cover before you rush out and purchase one.
One of the biggest benefits of truck bed covers are that they keep your valuables protected against weather damage and theft. Rain and strong UV rays can do a number on your belongings. And, when you keep valuables out in the open, it’s a strong possibility that they may just walk off with a conniving thief.
Tonneau Cover Pros
Although some people may believe that a truck bed cover makes it inconvenient to access your gear, there are several styles that deliver top-notch protection while still offering easy access. Take, for instance, the Extang Trifecta Tonneau Cover. This Extang cover folds back in thirds, making it easy to access part of your truck bed while keeping the rest of your gear covered. Or, you can fold it all the way back for total truck bed access. The Truck Covers USA American Roll Tonneau Cover also provides ease of access by retracting all the way back, with or without the new keyless entry option.
Another huge benefit of truck bed covers is that they give your rig a more aerodynamic design that ends up saving you money at the pump. Styles like the Truxedo TruXport Roll-Up Tonneau Cover and the Undercover Tonneau Cover deliver a tight, low-profile fit that helps you get more miles to the gallon.
Tonneau Cover Cons
One of the only cons of purchasing a tonneau cover is the price tag that accommodates it. However, with so many styles to choose from, you’re sure to find one that matches your needs and your budget. Soft tonneau covers offer superior protection, while costing less than hard tonneau covers. And, because tonneau covers can save you money at the pump and by keeping your valuables secure, I’d say the benefits of a truck bed cover far outweigh the cons.
