The 4 Benefits of Having a Retractable Tonneau Cover


Your truck is a great tool for hauling everything from firewood, snowmobiles, ATVs, rocks and, if you’re a hunter, your big game. There are many reasons to own a truck in the Four Corners area and the reasons vary from person to person. However, if you own a truck, adding a retractable tonneau cover to it may help you in the long run. Unlike a camper shell, retractable tonneau covers can give you both the functionality of a cover and the freedom of having an open truck bed. Read below to find out our 4 reasons why we think that having a tonneau cover is a HUGE benefit:

Security: Being able to store your items underneath a retractable tonneau cover allows for peace of mind when you’re out and about. Whether you’re hunting, fishing, camping, or running errands, locking your items underneath your tonneau cover means that you don’t have to worry about theft or damage. From hard top tonneau covers to retractable, their sturdy design means that you can rest easy about your items stored in the back of your truck.

Fuel Efficiency: Trucks are not known for their fuel efficiency – but adding a truck topper (even a camper shell!) can help you save money by reducing the amount of wind drag. There are varied reports that state you can reduce your drag by upwards of 5%. I don’t know about you, but in today’s fuel economy (where it can flip at a moment’s notice), it’s nice to know that you can save at least a little bit more.

Cleanliness: If you use your truck bed to store tools, gear or other items, adding on a truck bed cover like a retractable tonneau cover, can help keep your stuff cleaner. Foutz and Hanon carries several tonneau truck bed covers that are weather tight and weather proof – giving you the ultimate protection for all of your stuff.

Versatility: When you invest in a retractable tonneau cover, you are giving yourself the ability to have a closed truck bed as well as the freedom of having an open bed. During the week you are able to lock all of your tools and gear safely away – and during the weekend, you retract your tonneau cover and can load up all of the oversized extras you want.

Adding retractable tonneau covers can be fitted to almost every make and model of truck and if you’re unsure of fit, give us a call today!
