Tonneau covers are a smart investment for any truck owner. Not only do they protect your truck bed from dust, dirt, scratches and dings, but they also provide protection for your cargo and can even improve the aerodynamics of your vehicle. In fact, one of the only downsides to these covers is that some of them can be difficult and time consuming to install. Fortunately, however, this is not the case with trifold tonneau covers, which are known for being the simplest to install products of their kind. Even if you have no experience adding parts and pieces to your truck, you’ll be able to handle these products!
Most trifold tonneau covers require only a few clamps for a successful installation. That means no drilling and no risk of potentially damaging the very truck you are seeking to protect! While you are certainly welcome to take your cover to a professional for installation, it’s really a do-it-yourself type job, even for an absolute beginner. Once your cover is on, you’ll also find that it’s easy to use and move due to the traditional lightweight design. Don’t let the weight fool you, however. Most covers are actually very strong and durable.
One of the best products out there, both in terms of ease of installation and durability, is the Encore tonneau cover. Available for a great price at Auto Truck Depot, this cover is manufactured by Extang, one of the most trusted and well known manufacturers in the automotive accessory industry. The model even features special weather protection technology which allows it to stand up to the toughest rain, sleet, wind, snow, and other harsh weather conditions.

Our trifold Tonneau covers and other retractable lines are always popular with customers. People simply want that option if they are going to buy something that covers their truck beds. I mean, you bought a truck over an SUV because you wanted that open bed experience. The covers are just an accessory that can help you protect what you are hauling, but they shouldn’t prevent you from full functional use of the truck design.
Having a trifold Tonneau cover makes it that much easier when you are putting smaller items into the back of your truck. Do you really want to life the entire cover to throw some groceries in the back? Heck no. You just want to pop back one of the folds, shove the bags in and be on your way. Don’t get me wrong, those fiberglass Tonneau covers are beauties to be sure. They just aren’t as “easy in, easy out” as a retractable cover like a trifold or soft top can be.
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: it all comes down to personal preference. There are people who like the simplicity of fiberglass covers and don’t mind that the entire cover needs to be lifted to put stuff in and out. They like the way it looks and operates. And there are people who want the option of pulling back just a little bit of the cover to put something in. I’m certainly not going to tell anyone which aftermarket product they should buy. I’m just here to explain the benefits of each one. And from my vantage point, I can see that the retractable covers are highly versatile. So when I hear people explain that they want a cover so they can haul groceries or shopping bags in the back of their truck, of course, I’m going to recommend a trifold Tonneau cover.
