Description

Measure Your Truck Bed for a Tonneau Cover

Does your truck have a track system?

  • Quick, convenient cargo protection
  • Sits on top of bed rail to help keep water out of your bed
  • Tool-free installation in less than 10 minutes
  • Includes tailgate seal
  • Limited lifetime warranty

Preserve your cargo with the easy to use Rugged E-Series tri-fold tonneau cover. This cover is perfectly designed to keep out prying eyes and weather.

The Rugged E-Series tri-fold is designed with a durable tear-resistant vinyl supported by an aluminum frame that allows heavy rain or snow to simply slide off. Fully surrounding this aluminum frame is a seal that prevents moisture from entering the bed. When the cover is open all the way, it has fastening straps that will keep the cover secured while driving.

The Rugged E-Series tri-fold tonneau cover comes fully assembled and installs without tools in less than five minutes. With the quick latch system it will only take you a few seconds to open it up, so you can stow your cargo.

Rugged backs this truck bed cover with a limited lifetime warranty, so you are covered as long as you own it.

Order Notes

The cargo management, utili-track, or deck rail system options refer to the factory installed rail system designed to hold moveable cargo cleats along the inside of your truck bed. Please call us for further clarification.

I open and close my cover a lot. The design of the clasps could be a little friendlier. I still have to periodically look (put my head under the cover) at the clasps to get them in the right position to close them. And because they are adjustable, they get tighter or looser depending on how they flop around when open. I have to periodically readjust them to get the tight fit.

Otherwise, this is a good looking cover. VERY easy to install. I love the concept of being able to fold it up without taking it off. My previous cover was a hinged cover - which I also loved but had to take the whole thing off to put anything large in my bed, like a lawn mower or piece of furniture. This one can just fold up and I can take it with me until I unload my bed.

Seems to be pretty water tight. The back of the bed needs to be fairly tight to keep rain out but that's just a matter of making sure the clasps are tight.
EASY TO INSTALL AND FITS GREAT
