The tonneau covers for vehicles are usually for pickups to cover the load bed but they are also available for sports cars too. Here we explain more.
Tonneau covers for vehicles
Tonneau covers for vehicles come in a variety of styles and are used for securing the load bed or the cockpit. One of the most popular styles is a roll-up tonneau which is made from vinyl or cloth and has a rib-like structure fitted to help support the fabric and keep it in position. These are usually clicked into place using press studs but are becoming less popular because many pickup owners are not keen on the installing of these studs since they need to be drilled into the pickup or need a permanent adhesive. It's also possible to buy roll-up tonneau covers and these are opened by rolling the cover towards the truck's cab where it is kept in place until rolled back to cover the load bed. Some of these roll-up tonneau covers use slats of aluminium and so offer some security when in position also enable the carrying of loads on top of these slats.
Tonneau cover styles
Other tonneau cover styles include a retractable unit which will roll-up or retract towards a cab from the tailgate. These can be made from plastic or vinyl and also from aluminium. These types are usually locked into position and have a harder design than soft tonneau covers. They also tend to be semi-permanent installations and take more time installing. Increasingly common for pickups are tonneau covers that come in aluminium, hard plastic and fibreglass options. These covers can be painted in the same colour scheme as the pickup and can be locked thanks to their solid construction. These covers tend to be heavy and may need gas struts to be fitted to help their closing and opening. Some also have multiple compartments with some covers able to rise vertically to give easy and quick access to the load bed. Tonneau covers are also available for open-topped sports cars and tend to be made from hard plastic or vinyl and can be rolled into position when the car is not being used to help protect the cockpit. Sometimes these covers are made from leather and are available for sports cars, including the Porsche Boxster.
Hard tonneau cover
This type of hard tonneau cover can be fitted as a factory option when ordering a new vehicle but these hard plastic, fibreglass and aluminium covers are also available in the strong tonneau cover aftermarket. There's a wide range of designs and prices to meet whatever your needs are. However, if you own a pickup truck or a van and believe that you need to fit a tonneau cover to improve fuel economy, then you may have been misled because they make very little difference on your vehicle's economy.
