Many pickup owners go along without ever having to buy a truck bed cover in their lives. But for most owners, this is a (admittedly unfortunate) aspect of life. Truck bed covers protect your goods from the weather, keep them secure as you transport them all over the country, and ensure that they don’t shuffle around in cases of storms or bumpy roads. In fact, we’d go so far as to suggest that a cover is almost a necessity for many pickup owners. Transporting necessary equipment—such as first-aid equipment, fire extinguishers, and others—in your truck can certainly be difficult without one. All of this leads to one question, which is (as you can probably guess) this: “Which truck bed cover is perfect for me?” We recommend that you look into getting a Bestop 16113-01 EZ Fold Truck Tonneau Cover. Not only does its flexible design make it appropriate for a large variety of purposes, but it’s also built to last—and withstand tough weather conditions.
Features of the Bestop 16113-01 EZ Fold Truck Tonneau Cover
No-Frills InstallationInstalling this truck bed cover is very easy, and it takes as little as a few minutes. This is a big contrast to many other truck bed covers on the market; many of these take a long time to install, and require not only specific tools, but also that a second person is on hand to help you out. Installing anything, whether it’s a truck bed cover or not, is usually much more complicated, so you can finally catch a break with this product. You won’t even need to drill anything.
Save Money Buying Gas
A further benefit of this cover is that it will help you save gas. Because of its low-profile design, you won’t have to use as much gas. As a result, you can not only save money, but you can also lessen your ecological footprint. The overall effect is that not only will you be getting a truck bed cover that’s suited to your tastes, but also that this cover will help you be a little more green.
EZ Fold Design Allows for Efficient Access
Another benefit of using this cover is that has an EZ Fold design. This design allows you to access one part of the truck bed at a time. No longer will you have to open up the whole truck bed when you only want to work with part of the bed. Moreover, this will keep your cargo safe from anyone who might be looking inside, whether that’s a gossipy neighbor or potential thieves.
Solid, Weather-Resistant Design
Another reason this cover is ideal is that it has a tough construction of premium-quality leather-grain vinyl/polyester fabric This solid material enables the cover to protect your cargo, regardless of the weather—you can take them out into strong winds, harsh rain, and even strong sunlight that might otherwise cause UV damage. Thus, you don’t have to plan your trip according to what the weather is like—you can simply store your goods and set off on the road.
Cargo Remains Safe
One benefit of getting this cover is that your goods will remain safe, even if you’re moving your truck at fast speeds or on bumpy roads. This security is due to the low-profile hinge and rail system, which has reinforced corners; the system ensures stability on the road. Not only is the cover sturdy and solid, but it will also protect them in the case of unusual road conditions—things like ice on the road, streets that are bumpy due to potholes, or country roads filled with gravel.
