American Roll Tonneau Cover Review

American Roll Tonneau Cover Review



This tonneau cover was designed and built to​ fit your specific make, model and year pickup truck. Made in​ the USA by a​ man “with a​ working mans PHD”

Truck Covers USA boasts this retractable tonneau cover to​ have the smallest canister on the market sizing in​ at​ 8”x 8”.They say that this truck bed cover has double- walled panels and can support over 500 pounds. That’s a​ whopping quarter ton plus.

The American roll is​ tension driven and has stop and lock points at​ every 12 inches which comes in​ handy when carrying different loads. it​ has a​ textured black powder coat finish which is​ very tough and durable.

Dirt is​ kept out of​ the side rails and canister with the aid of​ high quality automotive grade wool and brushes. This is​ where some retractable tonneau covers have a​ problem.

This is​ a​ clamp on tonneau cover with a​ minimum drilling of​ holes for the drain tubes of​ the canister as​ is​ for other retractable tonneau covers. They say it​ can be installed within 2 hours. From what I read it​ can be any where from a​ half hour to​ three and a​ half hours. Truck covers USA designed and manufactured the clamps themselves especially for this cover. This cover is​ backed by a​ 2 year warranty which is​ a​ real plus for a​ retractable tonneau cover. I must say, this is​ a​ nice looking tonneau cover.

People who have installed this cover said they have done it​ quite easily. it​ only takes a​ few common tools. You may need some help lifting the canister into place but after that the rest should be a​ breeze. if​ you have a​ bed liner you will probably have to​ make some cuts in​ the liner where the clamps need to​ go and again at​ the tailgate where the lock of​ the tonneau cover ends up. No big problem though. if​ you open and close the cover a​ lot you may find having to​ unlock the cover a​ bit of​ a​ pain. This cover locks automatically. It’s great for a​ fifth wheel. a​ quite of​ few people have commented on how strong the cover is.

As is​ with other retractable tonneau covers you may get slight leakage with a​ lot of​ water. I must say that this has to​ be my favorite manual retractable tonneau cover. Lets just go over some of​ the good points. it​ will save you gas - it​ will deter thieves by keeping things out of​ sight out of​ mind not to​ mention the added locking system which is​ one of​ the better locks on tonneau covers today – the American roll will allow you to​ use your truck bed for tall loads without removing the cover – Easy installation – the cover will stop every twelve inches to​ accommodate your load - it​ comes with a​ 2 year warranty.

Now some of​ the negative points. May have slight leakage in​ heavy rain – You need to​ unlock the cover every time you use it​ – if​ you have a​ bed liner you may have to​ cut small sections of​ it​ for the clamps.

Now you decide if​ the American Roll tonneau cover is​ the cover you want for your truck bed and to​ protect your belongings.
