Folding Tonneau covers are just one style of Tonneau cover that we sell in our showroom. A lot of people like these covers because they find great benefit in their ease of use. You don’t have to open the entire cover to put something in your trunk. We sell multiple makes and models of Tonneau covers in our showroom, but the folding Tonneau covers seem to get the most interest most-likely for this reason.
You can purchase a “soft” Tonneau folding cover or a hard tri-fold. I don’t really have a preference when it comes to hard or soft covers. Usually I recommend the lighter weight folding Tonneau covers for people who have women or teens that also use and operate the vehicle. It just makes it easier on them when they need to haul something in the truck. Also with folding Tonneau covers you can still use or install a fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch to your truck bed.
Tonneau covers in general are great for keeping whatever is in your truck bed from being rained on, snowed on, etc, and they also do a better job than truck liners of keeping the bed of the truck free of debris and weathering. They are less invasive than putting down a liner—most of them don’t even require that you use screws to install them anymore.
When people ask me about the benefits to the tri-fold Tonneau covers over the other types of covers we sell in the showroom, I break it down like this: 1) ease of use, 2) convenience, and 3) non-invasive. You don’t need to drill into your truck bed to install it, it doesn’t take two grown men to lift the cover, and they are usually more lightweight than other truck bed covers.
