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.
