One of the best truck accessories you can buy for your vehicle is a camper shell or truck bed cover. They are ideal components to add to your truck if you’re looking for extra security and protection and can provide more utility to your vehicle. At TSA Custom Cars and Trucks, we have the best selection of camper shells and truck bed covers in Carson City. See for yourself how a truck bed cover can enhance your vehicle and protect the items you leave stored in it.
Camper shells, also called truck caps, are a great way to add utility to your truck and get the extra security you need to keep your important belongings safe. Not only do camper shells provide coverage for your valuables, but they also protect your truck’s bed from damage caused by poor weather conditions. And luckily, they are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, styles, and materials to properly fit your truck’s specific make and model.
While camper shells give trucks an SUV look, they don’t take away from the usability of your truck’s bed. Camper shells can be extremely useful for avid and novice campers as they provide a covered area for sleeping that goes beyond tent camping because it better protects from wind and rain. These shells are also great for those who like to travel with their pets but don’t want them ruining the interior of the truck’s cab. A camper shell keeps animals, such as dogs, perfectly safe while driving, and keeps your truck’s interior clean. And if you store tools for work in your truck bed, a camper shell protects and secures these items from inclement weather and out of sight from potential burglars.
Flat Truck Bed Covers
Flat truck bed covers, also called tonneau covers, are covers that lay flat over the top of your truck’s bed. These covers are generally used in trucks where the height of their cargo fits into the existing bed space. Another reason you would opt for the tonneau cover is if you often carry items that would be too tall for a camper shell. Because tonneau covers are simple and easy to remove they are a great option for those who often haul tall or large items. Tonneau covers also come in a variety of different styles and materials making them very versatile. See below to determine which cover would work best for you and your truck.
Folding tonneau covers are popular because of their easy use and effectiveness for keeping belongings guarded and the truck bed safe from poor weather conditions. These covers usually have either two or three panels which can be folded back in order to gain access to the bed of the truck. And because tonneau covers fold all the way back, removal isn’t necessary for carrying taller items in the bed.
Another benefit of folding covers is that they come in soft or hard materials, each having their own benefits. Soft folding covers allow easy access to the truck bed and can be fully removed with ease. Likewise, hardcovers are also easy to use, but they add an extra element of security when paired with a truck bed equipped with a locking tailgate. Soft and hard folding tonneau covers sit almost seamlessly above the truck bed for a smooth finished look.
Roll-up covers function just as their name implies. They roll-up from the back of the truck bed to the front in order to access the bed of the truck. These tonneau covers provide adequate protection for the truck bed and easy access for carrying taller items. Installation is also easy and non-damaging to your vehicle. The frame of this cover clamps to the truck bed without drilling and can be removed with ease.
Retractable tonneau covers are able to retract into the front of the truck bed, which is the area closest to the cab of the truck. These covers are able to fully retract and leave the truck bed completely open which means there’s no need to remove the cover to gain access to the bed. Some retractable tonneau covers can even be motorized and are controlled using a remote for effortless operation. Like most tonneau covers, the retractable covers also come in various materials such as vinyl or aluminum. Another type of retractable cover is made from a polycarbonate surface which is placed over a retractable reinforcing structure. These covers sit flat over the truck’s bed to provide a clean appearance and make the cover practically unnoticeable.
Hinged covers are used by lifting up the cover in order to gain access to the bed. They can be made with either soft or hard materials ranging from fiberglass and hard plastic to soft vinyl or cloth. The hardcovers can also be painted to perfectly match the color of your truck making them a seamless addition to your vehicle. Another benefit of hinged covers is that they offer complete weather protection and keep the bed of your truck free of damage caused by rain and snow. These covers provide extra security with a lock that protects the truck bed and prevents the tailgate from being opened. And if you need to remove the cover to fit large items in the truck bed, it’s easy to remove, and easy to re-install.
