How to Choose F-150 Bed Covers + Knife Test What’s Up With That? | Tonneau Covers Explained



PAOLI, Pa. (March 20th, 2019) –AmericanTrucks’ (AT) “What’s Up With That?” YouTube series is a new approach to highlighting different product categories to educate consumers on the subtle or not so subtle differences between product lines. In AT’s most recent episode, host Justin Dugan sharpens his pocketknife to talk all about F-150 bed covers.


The bed cover, or tonneau as it is sometimes referred to, is one of the most popular truck accessories purchased on AT with an almost endless selection of brands and styles. Laying out five of the most popular styles of bed covers (snap cover, tri-fold, roller, retractable and hinged), Justin weighs their pros and cons, demonstrates basic operations, while showing the benefits of a hard cover versus a soft cover for all out protection.


“Anytime I get to take out my knife at work and cut up a perfectly good soft cover, I take that as a win- and one hell of a stress reliever.”—Justin Dugan
