5 Major Benefits of Bed Covers

Every truck owner or enthusiast can agree there are few elements that can enhance the already visually appealing look of a truck. One of these elements are bed covers.

But this sleek accessory will serve to do so much more than enhance your truck’s aesthetic.

Whether you decide to install the classic Tonneau cover or bed cap, the additional component yields five major benefits to improve your haul.

Improved Gas Mileage

One of the most overlooked, yet important, advantage of bed covers is improved gas mileage. Compared to having an open bed, a covered bed can result in significantly less air resistance.

The improved aerodynamic design works to save truck owners as much as 10% more gas mileage.

Extra Storage

We understand that most people’s first concern about covering their truck is the restricted storage, but in reality, bed covers mean just the opposite.

At Trick Trucks, we offer Tonneau covers complete with T-slot rails for additional hauling capability – think roof racks, but for your truck bed.

The aluminum rails provide the perfect method for transporting larger items, while still giving you unabated use of your bed and cover.

Plus, with the ability to support over 500 lbs., the rails will cart everything from bikes to kayaks and coolers.

Protection From Theft

A pickup truck is meant to transport objects, but that does not mean everyone needs to know what you are hauling.

The best way to keep wandering eyes to themselves? Cover your belongings.

With bed covers, you can keep your valuables out of sight and out of mind from possible thieves. With an open bed, any passerby has the capability to reach in and help themselves to your belongings.

Thankfully, a bed cover not only conceals the items in your truck but enhances security with a build-in locking system.

Protection From Elements

The weather is unpredictable, and this is an especially true statement on the East Coast.

To ensure your haul is never again at the mercy of natural elements, install a bed cover to guarantee a weather-proofed bed.

Protection From Lost Belongings

If you have ever seen lost and forgotten items laying on the side of the road, chances are you are witnessing the downside to an open top.

Ideally, all items in an open truck bed would be securely fastened to avoid lost objects, but this is not always the case.

The major benefit of a covered bed is the ability to load up your truck without fear of losing anything.
