Styles of Truck Bed Covers
When choosing a bed cover, the first thing to decide is whether you want a soft or a hard cover. Let me explain. A soft cover does a good job of protecting your cargo from weather and will keep an honest person honest. Unfortunately, all someone needs to access your bed is a pocketknife or razor blade because the cover is made of vinyl.
The advantage of a soft cover is the price. Plain and simple. You can get this style cover in a rollup, folding or hinged one-piece design. When you move to a hard cover, security is no longer a concern because these do a great job of protecting the contents of the bed.
Here are the different styles of hard covers offered at Nu Image Audio:
This is where it all started. In the early days, one-piece bed covers were made of fiberglass. In more-recent years, composites have become popular since they weigh significantly less. The advantage of this style is weather resistance and security. They do the best job of any cover in this category.
The downside of this cover is flexibility. It is hard to access the bed from the side as it hinges up behind the cab. Should you ever need to use the whole bed, taking the cover off and on is a two-person job. Then you need to find a place to store it.
In more-recent years, folding bed covers have become available. They combine much of the security and weather resistance of one-piece models, but are a lot easier to use. The cover has three panels for most trucks. You can open one panel to access your bed, open the second panel or open all three. You can even flip the panels up against the rear window, giving you full bed access and no need to remove the cover. As you can imagine, this style is very popular.
Retractable Bed Covers
More and more people every year move to the retractable style of bed covers. They are extremely easy to use, look classy when installed, and are secure and weather-resistant. They come in two different styles.
The first style rolls up on top of the bed toward the cab and can be cinched into place should you need full bed access. The second style uses a canister that mounts under the top of the bed that the cover retracts into, along the lines of a rolltop desk. Either of these models is very easy to use, even by people whose mobility is more limited. For the ultimate in convenience, our canister-style retractable model even comes in a powered version. All you have to do is push a button on the wireless remote to open or close the cover. How’s that for convenience?
Once you have decided on a cover, you may want to have it professionally installed. Our install team is made up of some of the finest technicians in all of Kansas who will do the job right the first time while taking great care of your pickup.
