2016 Black Friday Guide to Getting The Perfect Tonneau Cover

Black Friday is just around the corner. Some people are saying the deals this year are going to be some of the best we’ve seen. And I’ve been saving up to get some hard earned upgrades for my F150, Dodge, and a few other trucks in my garage.

One thing I’ll have my eye on is Black Friday deals on truck bed covers, bumpers, and more.

Stay tuned if you’re interested in what I find.

Until I share my deal finds with you, here’s a list of pointers for picking out a cover as the eve of the holiday season is upon us…

I Have No Idea What Size Tonneau Cover I Need!

I have no idea what size tonneau cover I need! I know the color and material that I need, but not the size. I was borrowing my husband’s pick-up truck to help friends move while he is out of town on a business trip. When I got home, I decided to back into the garage so the groceries in the back would be closer to the kitchen. I totally forgot that his tonneau cover was leaning against the wall and I hit it with the truck, destroying it.

Make sure you checkout this overview of a cover I recently installed in the Bakflip G2 Tonneau Cover video. It’s a good all around bed cover for most trucks.

I am not entirely certain why the cover was propped up in the garage instead of on the truck itself, but I do remember he said that he had bought one that did not fit quite right, so he was going to adjust it somehow to make sure it stayed on tightly.

Well, that will not matter now. Fortunately there is no damage to the truck, and I know he was not emotionally attached to the old cover, but I have to figure out what size tonneau cover to get to replace the one that I ran over and destroyed before he gets home!

Waterproof Tonneau Covers

Waterproof tonneau covers are an excellent choice for anyone who owns a truck. This will be especially true for contractors who rely on putting their tools in the box of their truck. Without a proper waterproof tonneau cover the tools quickly rust and be useless. Tools are expensive as everyone knows and need to be properly taken care of so that the last for a long time.

The only issue that you may have when shopping for a quality waterproof tonneau cover is to know which brand is a best. We live in a world that has huge superstores and when it comes to vehicle parts these huge superstores make it difficult to decide upon one product over another.

The first thing that you should look for in a waterproof tonneau cover is a product that has a long, reputable history. There are certain companies that have making waterproof tonneau covers for over 30 years while there are others that are brand-new on the market.

The company that has 30 years of knowledge and experience on how to make a quality product should be your first choice. After all, if their products were inferior then the would have been out of business long time ago.

Tips On How To Measure Tonneau Cover

Want to know how to measure a tonneau cover? I have been in the same spot before, and it requires precision to make sure you are getting accurate readings.

You are going to be looking at three specific areas of the truck bed to make sure you find a good fit.

  1. Tailgate
  2. Bed Length (Inside of truck bed)
  3. Bulk Head

You will want to convert all of these readings into feet to make it easier on you. This will enable you to go out and get a good cover for the truck bed.

I tend to take my time and measure twice or thrice when it comes to the truck bed. It is easier to make a mistake measuring than to go out because you bought the wrong option.

Be patient and take your time when it comes to the measurements. It is only going to make things easier for you in the end.

As long as you are equipped with this information, you are going to be in the right hands, and that is what matters. You will feel safe with what you have.

A good tonneau cover is right around the corner for those who pay attention to this information.
