What is a Tonneau Cover?

Tonneau Cover defined

Tonneau cover s are used by truck and ute owners to cover and secure their luggage on the deck/tray. They are also used by the car owner to cover an open-top car.

The most basic tonneau cover is made from cloth or vinyl, and uses a rib-like system to support the fabric and keep it taut. A snap based system can also be used in order to hold the tonneau cover in place.

The tonneu cover is excellent for protecting the load on the back of the truck or ute from variable weather conditions. Perhaps the most obviously of adverse weather conditions for a load would be rain. The tonneau cover will also protect loads on tray decks, and car interiors from prying eyes and light fingers.

Tonneau covers can come in a variety of styles and can be bought from many car accessory outlets throughout Australia’s main centresWe hope that helps answer the question ‘What is What is a Tonneau Cover?’!
