Using a truck bed mat without a cover is like playing soccer in high heels. You can totally do it, but you’ll ruin the shoes and lose the game.
When you play a sport, you need the right equipment to be competitive. Trucks without truck bed covers work just fine. You can run in heels, kick a ball in heels – and you can haul stuff around without a cover. But to protect your feet and play your best, you need cleats. To protect your stuff and improve the use of your bed, you need to install a high quality cover.
A truck bed cover has a ton of functions. Obviously, it protects all the items from wind and rain and damage. But they also make the truck just look nicer. It can also improve the value of the truck, making it worth more at trade-in and it make transporting everything much safer. It can also help your man improve his laziness factor. Now instead of having to learn how to tie stuff down, he can just pile it in the bed of his truck, secure the cover and off he goes!
I was sent the Access® Limited Edition Roll-Up Cover to review.
And look! I even made a gif to show it off!
No, it is not an automatic cover. I just made magic with my camera and computer. But it is super simple to roll up and roll down.
And this is a close-up of the cover when it is fully rolled up. I love how compact it is!
It has metal bars that are underneath the vinyl – the cover stretches across them and they hold the cover up.. The hook and loop closure is crazy strong and gives the cover a smooth look.
And now, when you buy this limited-edition cover (starting at $602 – some retailers charge more, some charge less), you will also get three accessories for free!
- 2oz COVER CARE™ Cleaner
- ACCESS™ EZ-Retriever® II Cargo Reaching Tool
- ACCESS™ AA Battery LED Light
Note: You can purchase this from the AgriCover store or from their partners. Price may change depending on where you buy it from.
The Cargo Reaching Tool is amazing. Again, ACCESS brand is helping your husband get a higher score on his laziness exams (I kid). Now instead of having to climb into his truck bed, he can just use this to grab stuff! It is 5 feet long and has an MSRP of $19.95.
And the light? I began to wonder why these are not standard on all truck beds:
The battery compartment is super well sealed. It will last through heavy truck use – water, bangs, what have you. And the lights are LED so they are bright and yet also energy efficient. The adhesive for the lights is super strong. Definitely a top-notch accessory.” This has a MSRP of $39.95. But also free with purchase of this limited edition cover, if you buy from the AgriCover store.
When your truck is used and loved and a family vehicle, you want to treat it right. Care for it. Of course, trucks are built to be tough, to be used, and loved. Sure, you can run in heels. But investing in the right pair of shoes makes all the difference in the game.
