Lately we have been having some crazy weather in some areas of the country. Ice storms have taken their toll this year. And when these storms hit, unprotected vehicles are left iced over. Scraping and thawing are never a fun way to start the morning, or any time, really. However, these ice storms do double damage if you happen to own a pickup truck. Not only do your windows and doors freeze up, but your truck bed gets covered by a sheet of ice too. If you were storing anything in that bed, it also gets damaged. That’s why it is important to keep your truck bed and its content protected with a tonneau cover.
Lund is well known for manufacturing superior tonneau covers. They have five different designs to choose from, so you are sure to find the perfect model for your specific circumstances. Two of the more popular models are the Roll-Up Tonneau and the Tri-Fold Tonneau. Both tonneau covers use high-quality double-sided, tear-resistant fabric to offer superior protection. The fabric is black matte and matches the black rails and bows for good looks too.
The tri-fold model folds into thirds, securing with easy-to-use clamps. This design allows for great flexibility in using your truck bed. For starters, it allows easy access to the rear of your truck bed without having to lift or remove the entire tonneau cover. In addition, you can choose how much of you truck bed you want to leave exposed. For example, if you are carrying long cargo, like lumber, you can leave the last third open, giving the lumber room to stick out. With a traditional truck tonenau, you would have to remove the entire to accomplish this. With the tri-fold, however, you can still leave two thirds of your truck bed covered and protected.
The roll-up tonneau expands this flexibility by allowing you to roll the entire tonneau. This leaves your truck bed completely open, providing you room to haul appliances, machinery, or other large cargo. Because the tonneau rolls up, you do not need to remove and stow the tonneau, and it’s ready to unroll as soon as you unload. Similarly, if you are constantly climbing into and out of your truck bed, this tonneau can be rolled up quickly and easily, allowing you full access when you need it, and full protection as soon as you don’t.
As you can see, you may want to think through exactly what sort of uses you most use your truck bed for, so you can find the right kind of cover for you. Tonneaus are available in multiple materials, both hard and soft, in many different styles, and from many different manufactures. It’s important to pick the right cover so you can get the most out of both the tonneau cover and your truck bed.
