Overview of Features
When the cover is closed, it will protect your cargo completely from any type of weather that you can think of. Not just the weather, it will also protect anything closed in with the cover from dust and other environmental harm.
When you need quick access to your cargo the cover easily rolls partially open. And when fully open you’ll have 100% bed access if you need to haul large cargo like furniture or an ATV.
A good feature of this soft, roll-up truck bed cover is that it is inaccessible without the need for a lock. When the tailgate of your truck is closed and locked, there is no access to the truck bed cover opening mechanism.
This is due to the fact that the opening mechanism of the roll-up cover is hidden behind the truck’s tailgate. This makes it secure, and that is without the need for an extra set of keys to carry in your pocket.
We really like that the Truxport is made from high-quality leather grain vinyl that is durable and looks great on your truck. It will also protect the cargo from the damage of dust and weather, and it keeps any unwanted hands away from your valuables.
There is one problem, though. If the tailgate is locked and you lose the keys, there is no access to the cover. That means you will only have access to the truck bed when you acquire another set of keys for the truck.
It is a bit more expensive than most other similar products, but the great features of this cover make up for that.
It is waterproof and suitable for rain, snow ice, snowstorms hail mud, dirt, and dust. Aside from being resistant to UV, it is not faded. The tarp also has a 5-year warranty and is manufactured in the USA. As a softcover, it may not offer as much theft prevention as the lock cover but the cover can protect your load from the elements and obscure the cargo from view making it less likely to be stolen.

The TruXport tonneau cover can be connected by means of any sub rail bed liner because it mounts over rails. When the tonneau covers are rolled up there are straps to secure them and you can unload and load the truck easily. The manufacturer improved its tonneau design encasing the tension controller at this end of the mattress to allow easier access and allowing the user to adjust the cover for a smoother look. The tension compensation is situated at the base of the truck beds to allow better access to its bed depth.

The TruXedo Truxport delivers exceptional value all the way. These tonneau covers cannot be airtight so give more caution about keeping your vehicle safe.
