New Truck Bed Covers from UnderCover: Ultra Flex & Ridgelander

One of our favorite tonneau covers has always been the UnderCover Flex. This cover is one of the top, best-selling tri-fold covers we carry, and for good reason. The UnderCover Flex is easy to use, has a solid and sturdy construction, and not to mention, it looks fantastic on any pickup truck.
UnderCover is also renowned for its series of solid one-piece truck bed covers like the Classic and LUX. These covers are constructed of the finest materials and quality craftsmanship, and have been the staple of UnderCover's product line for a while now, but UnderCover has just recently introduced two new covers that are definitely worth checking out; the UnderCover Ultra Flex and RidgeLander.

UnderCover Ultra Flex Tonneau Cover

The new Ultra Flex tonneau cover is like a beefed up and improved version of the already amazing UnderCover Flex tonneau cover. This cover has a similar design, but with improvements like tighter seals, improved drainage systems, latches that provide better security and are easier to use, and panel undersides that have a protective carpet-like finish. If that's not enough, UnderCover has even decided to include some must-have features like saddlebags that mount inside your truck bed for additional storage and dual-rail lighting for accessing your truck bed in the dark!

If you're a fan of the UnderCover Flex, you definitely need to check out the Ultra Flex, because they've really outdone themselves with this new hard folding cover. And this isn't the only new cover to be added to the collection!

UnderCover RidgeLander Tonneau Cover

If you're looking for maximum truck bed security and versatility in a tonneau cover, you can't overlook the new UnderCover RidgeLander. The RidgeLander has a similar construction and all the benefits of the UnderCover Classic with its solid 1-piece design, sturdy construction, and OEM styled centered lock. This cover has always been a gem, and now with the UnderCover RidgeLander, it comes equipped with a built in perimeter track system that provides a base rack system that can be customized to fit your lifeststyle and needs perfectly.
This cover comes equipped with Quick Mount Legs and Two Vortex Aero Load Bars, which can be adjusted or moved, and used with the many available Rhino-Rack add-ons to help you carry your gear. Loading up your truck with bikes, snowboards, and camping gear has never been more convenient.

Rundown: UnderCover Flex Tonneau Cover


Tonneau covers are one of the best ways to enhance your truck bed. They provide security for your cargo while protecting it from the elements, and increase the efficiency of your truck bed storage. If you are thinking about adding a Tonneau Cover to your truck, the UnderCover Flex is a product you must consider.

UnderCover Flex Tonneau Cover from Auto Truck Depot
The UnderCover Flex exceeds the competition for durability, functionality, and security. This cover is made for simplicity. There is absolutely no drilling necessary for installation, and once installed, removing it is easy. Unlike most other tonneau covers, the UnderCover Flex is made of a high quality FRP composite material that is lighter, stronger, and even more dent resistant than aluminum. If security is a consideration, this product has it.
The flex panels automatically latch to the covers mounting rails and the slam latch system secures your belongings when the tailgate is locked. The UnderCover Flex sits inside the bed rails, which include a rubber seal and drain tubes that carry water away from, and out of the truck bed--making this the most water resistant cover yet, and ensuring your cargo stays dry and protected.
Slam latches ensure your cargo is secure, and also allow for easy access from either side of your truck bed. The UnderCover Flex has three riding positions: full coverage, 3/4 coverage, and full bed access. The cover can be safely secured for driving in any of these positions with latch locks, and its unique prop rods keep the panels held out of the way for full truck bed access and maximum truck bed storage efficiency.

The New, Exclusive LOMAX Hard Tri-Fold Cover

We are very excited to announce the LOMAX Hard Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover now available from Auto Truck Depot. I know what you're thinking, what's so exciting about another tonneau cover? Well, it's because we are the only people in Canada to stock this particular tonneau cover.
The panels are constructed from the same aluminum alloy that is used in trailers, and the panels are supported by extruded aluminum channels. This means the cover is very light and also very durable. It can support up to 400 pounds of evenly distributed weight on top, which is great for heavy snow falls or for setting tools on top temporarily. It's also coated in a textured black finish that ensures it will match the OEM style of modern trucks as well as helping to hide minor scratches and grime build up.
It installs without any required drilling; simply clamp the rail in place and then install the eight TIGHT BITE™ Clamps to hold the rails against your truck bed. Then the cover can be locked into place simply by sliding it along the rail until it catches the latches.
There are ten locking points along the full length of the cover, ensuring that when it's closed it stays closed. To open it, simply pull the latch cable by your tailgate and fold each section back. As a panel is folded, it will automatically unlock the latch points on the next panel. Once you have it folded all the way to the cab, integrated retractable storage clips can be pulled out and clipped in place to hold the cover open so you can drive with the cover opened safely.
The LOMAX Hard Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover has one of the lowest profiles of any tonneau cover, sitting less than half an inch above your truck bed rails. This offers a sleek, professional look that increases your vehicle's aerodynamic form and can even increase your fuel economy.The cover features vinyl coated hinges to keep the top waterproof and it is engineered to shed water off the cover without any drains or gutters. The cover itself overlaps your truck bed rails, creating a continuous seal that keeps your cargo secure and dry, as well as away from the prying eyes or sharp objects of potential thieves.
The LOMAX Hard Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover can be operated and installed by one person, and if you ever need to take the cover off, the main piece can be separated by one person as well. It is lightweight, durable, dependable, and only available in Canada from the Auto Truck Depot. Check out the product page for pricing details and product information videos.

Overview: Tri-Fold Tonneau Covers

Tri-Fold Tonneau Covers are a "best-of-both-worlds" cover. They are available in hard or soft folding styles, so you can get a cover that more accurately fits your needs. What is most unique about this style of tonneau cover is its fold-up 3-panel design. Because of the panel system, these covers are better sealed against weather and harder to break into than some other cover styles, as they have fewer weak points. 
The UnderCover Flex is one of the more popular tonneau covers on the market and is well known for its strength. Each panel is made of a high quality FRP composite material, which is stronger, lighter and more durable than aluminum.

Another unique feature of the UnderCover Flex is its water tight seal and drain tubes that funnel water away from and out of your truck bed. Its design makes it one of the most waterproof covers available, so you know your cargo will be protected. 
Tri-Fold Tonneau Covers generally have 3 locking positions: full coverage, 3/4 bed access and full bed access. Some covers, like the UnderCover Flex, can opened by one person from either end of the vehicle to provide easy access to the front or back of the truck box.
The panels automatically latch, ensuring full security and simple operation. To open or close most Tri-Fold Tonneau Covers, a latch or handle releases the locks for easy access, and once your tailgate is locked, your truck bed is secure.

Overview: Hard One-Piece Tonneau Covers

Hard One-Piece Tonneau Covers are known for their single piece construction which makes them extremely durable. These covers fit over top of your truck bed and lift up from the back, often guided with hydraulic struts for easy use. Because there are less pieces and parts, they are easier to operate, and more secure against break-ins and weather than other types of truck bed covers. They do prevent full truck bed access while mounted, but they can be removed if necessary. The solid, single piece construction means they are more durable and long lasting than the other styles of tonneau cover.
The UnderCover LUX Tonneau Cover is one of our more popular models of hard tonneau covers. This cover is constructed of a durable, lightweight ABS composite material that covers the entire truck bed when installed. This tonneau cover has a single point lock that controls both locking hinges to make getting in and out of your truck bed as simple as possible. When closed, the UnderCover LUX tonneau cover seals the full perimeter around your truck bed to provide maximum protection against rain and moisture.

Hard top tonneau covers are the best option if you want full protection for your truck bed. These covers are the most watertight, durable and secure covers available due to their solid one-piece design, and they look great on any pickup truck. The covers can even be painted to match the colour of your vehicle.

What are the Best Tonneau Covers?

Bakflip F1When shopping for tonneau covers, people always want to ensure that they’re looking at the best tonneau covers. However, that term “best” is quite subjective. The right cover for you might not be the right cover for someone else. It’s really all about what you’re looking for in a cover, your unique needs, and of course, your budget. Fortunately, Auto Truck Depot offers a very wide range of tonneau covers, so it’s possible for every truck-owner to find the exact product he or she is looking for. Always remember, as well, that if you have to go for a cheaper option at first, you can always upgrade later!

The best tonneau covers for those who want an option that won’t get in the way are retractable tonneau covers. These models protect the truck bed when necessary, but when not in use, they can easily be flipped up and away. Even among retractable covers, however, you still have a lot of choice. Your cheaper options are controlled manually, meaning you have to put them up or down yourself. More high tech options can be controlled electronically, allowing you to put your cover up or down with the mere push of a button. You can even find choices that divide the bed of your truck for easier storage.

You can also find folding covers, which as the name implies, fold into or out of place. Some come off completely when you’re not using them, while others stay in place but can be folded out of sight. You also have more permanent covers to consider as well. For best results, look at all the options and think about the pros and cons of each before committing to a decision.

Best Tonneau Covers on a Budget: Retrax Retractable Tonneau Covers

Tonneau covers are indispensable items for individuals who routinely work as contractors, or even families who intend to do a lot of hauling of goods.  They keep your items secure on long highway rides, the prevent rain, sleet, or snow from falling upon parcels or expensive tools, and even provide security for goods that you wish to leave in the back of your truck while you’re inside a store or building.  The best Tonneau covers in my opinion are those that are functional, attractive, and won’t break the bank.  Retrax retractable Tonneau covers provide the best of both worlds as they have the benefits of both hard and soft cover Tonneaus.  The cover is fully retractable, but is in no way “flimsy” in material.  In fact, the cover is extremely strong.  We like this product here at Auto Truck Depot for this very reason.  It enables you to have a tight, slick fit and saves you money that would otherwise go to a hard cover.

All of our Tonneau covers can be installed in our service department, but I’d like to mention that Retrax Tonneau covers are actually very easy to install and are one of the few that we would recommend to “moderate” mechanically inclined to self-install.  Naturally, there are those who really don’t want to bother with self-installation so we’re always obliged to do it while you wait in our service area.  I’m just saying that you don’t have to.

Come down to the store and check them out.  You’ll see exactly what I mean.  The clamp and lock system is fairly easy to understand and you don’t have to be Hercules to snap it down nor do you have to be McGuyver to tighten it to the back of the truck.  Also, the cover itself looks very slick and tight when it’s in place.  Very attractive.  In short, if you can’t afford a hard cover paint-matched Tonneau then Retrax Retractable Tonneau Covers are your best bet.  I’ve said many times, the covers that fit both your needs and your budget are the best Tonnaeu covers for you.
