A tonneau cover is some thing that fits on top of the bed of a truck. They can be flexible or stiff depending on the type that you get. They are used to keep things in the bed of a truck safe from the weather and from blowing out of the truck when driving down the road. Some of the covers are more expensive than others and there are different sizes and styles depending on the brand of truck.

They can be rolled up or taken completely off depending on the style. If you get a flexible material one, you can roll it up as you need. If you are looking for the stiff ones, you can take them off in sections you can remove it completely when you need to haul larger items. You can find the right one that will fit your needs and the needs of your vehicle.
