There are two main categories for tonneau covers: soft covers and hardcovers.
Soft Covers for your Truck
Soft covers come in one of two ways, soft vinyl roll-up or soft vinyl tri-folding. Soft vinyl roll-up and soft vinyl tri-folding tonneau covers are the “original” tonneau covers of today. Soft vinyl tonneau covers are an affordable way to keep cargo dry and unseen from other individuals. They also make it very easy to utilize the entire space of the truck bed in just minutes. A soft-vinyl roll-up tonneau cover is a vinyl or canvas material that covers the entire truck bed usually secured by either Velcro or snaps along the entire perimeter of your truck bed. Soft vinyl tri-folding tonneau covers are also made from vinyl or canvas that is normally fixed to the covers framework. The cover folds into three different sections, one on top of the other, as the cover is opened from your tailgate towards the cab. Soft covers offer great protection from the elements but do lack with security. If you are looking for more of a secure tonneau cover than that of a soft cover, hard tonneau covers are the way to go.
Hard Covers for your Truck
Hard tonneau covers are the most popular tonneau cover in today’s market. Offered in hard folding, one piece, and even retractable styles. Hard tonneau covers not only keep cargo dry but are also very safe and secure. Hard panel folding tonneau covers are the most versatile hardcovers on the market, protecting cargo, allowing fifth wheel towing, and offering the ability to utilize the entire space of the truck bed when needed. Hard panel folding tonneau covers also fold one section on top of the other and can be used in three various positions on the truck bed:

Hard folding tonneau covers work for almost any truck owner as they can accommodate for any kind of payload that you may throw at it. Most hard folding tonneau covers are offered in either a glossy or matte black powder coated finish that compliments the plastics on the truck. Although hard panel folding tonneau covers are the most popular covers in today’s market, there a few other options for individuals with other interests.
A one-piece tonneau cover, occasionally referred to as a lid, is going to offer the great security of a hardcover, but as the name describes, all one piece. Most one-piece tonneau covers are very easy to remove in just minutes to allow use of the entire truck bed when needed. Picture the way a hood opens on a truck, these one-piece covers operate the same way but over the truck bed. All one-piece covers offer the capability of being color matched to your truck for the ultimate custom look. They are also very easy to operate. Unlock it, turn the handle and you’re in!

Now, if you are in the market for a top of the line, secure tonneau cover, retractable tonneau covers are for you.

Retractable tonneau covers are the most secure tonneau covers on the market offering a peace of mind that the cargo is safe, secure, and dry while in use.
