Why buy a tonneau Cover?
Tonneau COVERS SAVE GAS
A tonneau cover for your truck's bed channels
air over the bed preventing drag and increasing performance
and MPG. An independent study sponsored by Ford Motor Company
suggests that a cover can increase MPG by as much as 10%.
Your truck bed is a magnet for air as you travel down the
road. That air creates a drag on your tailgate that can
significantly reduce your performance.
TONNEAU COVERS KEEP YOUR
CARGO SECURE AND DRY
Many tonneaus for trucks are lockable and
provide security for your cargo. This is true for some soft
covers including roll-up covers and lift covers. In addition
to security, a cover can keep the contents of your bed dry
even in a down poor.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT COVER
FOR YOUR TRUCK
Tonneau covers have become very popular
these days, and for many reasons. Truck tonneau covers give
you the option of having the extra storage space your truck
provides, while maintaining a clean looking, sharp truck.
In addition, tonneau covers have actually been proven to
increase gas mileage while protecting your possessions from
the elements and theft. These features have made them among
the most popular automotive products available today.
There are now hundreds of available tonneau
covers for all kinds of trucks. With so many options, it
can be hard to find the right tonneau cover for your truck.
When this situation arises, I normally recommend that a
customer look at the different categories of tonneau covers
available, and make a decision based on which category of
tonneau cover will best fit their needs. I would also recommend
the buyer goes to a store and "look and touch"
the tonneau covers on the market.
