Tonneau covers can protect your cargo in virtually any type of weather. If you live in an area with very harsh weather conditions, such as constant rain, heavy winds, harsh sun or heavy snow, you will probably want to choose a heavy-duty tonneau cover. Depending on where you live, the weather can play a big part in choosing a tonneau cover.
Tonneau Covers Keep Out the Rain
Remember the old saying, "April showers bring May flowers"? Spring and early summer is the time for rain, and lots of it in certain parts of the country. With a tonneau cover, you can make sure that you're not surprised by any sudden showers. Many tonneau covers offer a weather-tite seal that will keep out the rain and keep your cargo dry. However, if your tonneau cover doesn't come with one, make sure you get one.
Sunshine On My Tonneau
When you're ready to cruise on down to the local beach, what better way to prepare than with a tonneau cover? Low profile tonneau covers give your truck a sleek, streamlined look that is sure to attract lots of attention. If you're going camping over the summer, tonneau covers give you a perfect place to store your gear when traveling to and from the campsite.
Tonneau Covers Keep Out Debris
During the autumn months, trees loose their leaves and a lot of those can end up in the back of your truck. Leaves can block your truck bed's drainage holes, causing water to build up and eventually forming rust. A tonneau cover will prevent leaves and other debris from getting in your bed, keeping it nice and clean.
Winter Weather Woes
Winter can be particullary rough time for your tonneau cover. The right type of tonneau cover will help keep out the snow and offer you years of reliable performance. In areas where the winters are very harsh, you may want to try a hard tonneau cover. Because snow can become quite heavy (especially if it's a wet snow), a hard truck bed cover is usually recommended. Some soft tonneau covers from Extang offer adjustable snaps that allow you to loosen or tighten the tonneau and are perfect for areas that experience mild winters.
