Every truck owner wants to get the most out of their truck. Whether you’re driving to a work site, helping a friend move, or going off the beaten path, maximizing your bed space helps make any job easier and more efficient. Truck bed covers are an excellent addition for drivers looking to protect and secure their truck beds and come in a variety of styles: roll-up covers, retractable covers, and hard plastic or fiberglass to name a few. We’ve put together a few helpful questions to ask yourself while you determine which cover is best for you.
How Often are you Loading and Unloading your Truck bed?
Truck owners that are constantly loading and unloading truck bed items should look for a cover that opens and closes seamlessly. A retractable truck bed cover allows for easy access to items in your truck bed in seconds. Folding covers usually take longer to store, and can be a hassle if you’re in a hurry.

States like Louisiana, Alabama, and Georgia have to deal with rain and sometimes snow throughout the year. Truck owners in these states may want to consider a water-resistant cover. Many truck bed covers are water resistant, but not waterproof. Keeping items dry is top of mind for Roll-N-Lock owners, so be sure to check the details of any truck bed cover before making a purchase.
