Four Advantages of a Customized Truck Bed Cover

No Comments

One of the things we do here at Banister’s Upholstery is customize truck bed covers. We can come up with the perfect bed cover for your pickup truck. You can choose the perfect color from a wide variety of options and this will not only beautify your automobile but also come with other advantages. Let’s talk about the four advantages of a customized truck bed cover below.

1. Aesthetics

We already mentioned beauty but let’s talk more about this. You can increase the value of your truck if you put a customized bed cover on it. This not only increases its aesthetic appeal, but it also increases the resell value of the automobile for the additional reasons we are going to list. Go big or go home with a bright color to offset a neutral-colored pickup, or give your truck a classic look with a tan bed cover.

2. Economy

You may not believe this, but a truck bed cover will save you money. When you drive with an uncovered bed, air fills inside of the bed and gets stuck behind the tailgate. This slows your truck down. This aerodynamic inhibitor is called “air drag.” You boost your truck’s aerodynamics with a bed cover. This prevents the air from getting stuck inside the bed behind the tailgate to slow you down. You will see a difference in your truck’s fuel economy with a customized bed cover.

3. Protection

A truck bed cover also protects your truck bed. It prevents it from getting filled with dirt and debris that can scratch the bed paint. A quality bed cover will also keep your truck bed dry when it is raining outside. This helps prevent the rainwater from pooling inside the bed and rusting it in the corners. Protecting your truck bed also helps boost its resell value when it’s time to sell it. A nice clean and un-scratched bed will appeal to the potential buyer.

4. Security

Finally, your customized truck bed cover will also provide additional security when you haul groceries or other goods. You won’t have to tie things down anymore. Rather, it’s as simple as loading the truck bed and then closing the cover. This is especially important when it’s raining outside. All of the goods being stored in the bed will be protected from the rain by the customized cover.
