Dirt Bike on Tonneau Cover

Whether you’re loyal to Yamaha or Suzuki, Beta or Honda, you need a reliable way to get your dirt bike from home to the gnar. Consider hauling your dirt bike on a tonneau cover for your truck. Don’t be a goon, make sure your tonneau cover is everything it needs to be for your bike.

Is your truck bed cover clapped out? Or has your dirt bike been rolling around in your truck bed like some kind of bro? When it comes to upgrading your dirt bike set up, a heavy-duty tonneau cover is definitely a strong starting point. 

After all, you’re not some kind of plastic princess. You’re ready to take on any race, any time. But your truck has to get you and your bike their first. Plus, as opposed to the Richie Rich who can pick up new gear constantly, you need a champion truck bed cover that’s ready to win a fight against wind, rain, dirt, and mud.

Protect your tried and true riding gear under an aluminum water-resistant tonneau cover. With a tri-fold design, easily access what you need without exposing the rest of the truck bed to the elements. Or add an overlanding set-up on top for a truly turn-key approach. With Renegade, you’ll have a cover made of Military-Grade aluminum, built to withstand any challenge. 

Dirt Bike on Tonneau Cover

It’s time to get dialed in. Whether you’re ready for a motocross or supercross event, or wanting to take on a 24-hour race, a tonneau cover is the way to go. Plus, if you choose the right tonneau cover, you’ll have a few options for hauling your bike. If you want to dedicate space underneath the tonneau cover for your gear, you can secure your bike on top of the cover. Otherwise, you can fold your Renegade Cover up and have plenty of room to spare to secure your bike standing up in the bed.

Before you get too excited about putting your bike on top of your cover, be sure to consider how much your dirt bike weighs and if your tonneau cover is strong enough to bear it; many aren’t. For example, when it comes to trail dirt bikes, the Honda Trail 125 ABS weighs 259lbs, Yamaha TT-R230 weighs 251lbs, and Kawasaki KLX300R weighs 282lbs. But that gets dangerously close to the Paragon’s weight limit. Dual sport bikes tend toward 300lbs and enduro bikes, like the Husqvarna TE 300i, come in around 235lbs. An adventure bike takes things to another level; the Suzuki V-STROM 1050XT Adventure comes in at 545lbs.

Lucky for you, the Renegade Cover holds up to 2,000lbs, so load up a few bikes on top and you’ll still drive easy. Plus, be sure to consider the length of your bike and the size of your folding tonneau cover when it’s folded up. Many of Renegade’s competitors have much more bulky covers, keeping you from being able to close your tailgate.

Attack Position

Don’t bottom out or come in last. Get a truck bed cover to haul your dirt bike today. As you shop, think about a cover that’s going to make your life easy – that way you can spend more time carving the inside line than dreaming about it.

Now leave hauling your dirt bike to Renegade, and get back to practicing a No-Footed Can-Can or Nac Nac. 

How Much Weight Can a Tonneau Cover Hold?

Fulfill your Truck’s Potential

Before you invest in a tonneau cover, it’s important to consider all the ways you plan to use it. Like most folks looking for truck bed covers, you’re excited to protect whatever you plan to transport in your truck bed. But don’t forget about the new and usable space you’ll be creating on top of your tonneau cover! Yes, you can use the top of the cover! Now the question is, how much weight can a tonneau cover hold?

Comparing Weights on Tonneau Covers

Depending on your truck model and bed size, a tonneau cover can bear between 15 and 2,000 pounds on top. Make sure you don’t sell yourself short; invest in a tonneau cover that’s up for any adventure or project.

The most inexpensive tonneau covers are also the least strong. Soft tonneau covers are not only vulnerable to poor weather conditions, but lack security. Plus they can only hold between 15 and 30lbs on top. 

Lomax Pro Cover

Another option would be a fiberglass tonneau cover, which can often hold between 80 and 110lbs of weight. However these covers lack serious functionality; by maxing out at just over 100lbs, they won’t even bear the weight of a few inches of wet snow. 

Load Bearing Truck Bed Cover

If you want endless possibilities, you need a tonneau cover that’s built to last. You never know when you’ll need to pick up a new dryer to save on delivery fees, or building supplies at Home Depot. Plus, with a load-bearing truck bed cover, you can bring your snowmobile or ATV along for your next adventure.

Folding tonneau covers start to open up the possibilities. How much weight can a folding tonneau cover hold? Well, a Paragon tops out at 300lbs and a Diamondback can’t handle more than 1,600 pounds. But a Renegade Cover? It leads the industry in weight-bearing capacity. 

How Much Weight can a Tonneau Cover Hold?

With a Renegade heavy-duty hard tonneau cover, you can say goodbye to your worries. Able to hold 2,000lbs, it has the necessary structural support to keep your cargo in place while your truck is on the go. Plus it has a smooth top to ensure easy sliding action to load sheets of wood. 

how much weight can a tonneau cover hold?

With a weight-bearing tonneau cover, you can trust it to hold your weight if you need to stand on top of it. In fact, it would hold the weight of a mule. The options for everything in between are unlimited. 

Imagine the difference this will make for a cross-country road-trip or move! Add racks to the top and you could get into overlanding, or take your kayaking, mountain biking, or skiing habit to the next level. Unleash your true potential, and that of your truck, with Renegade.

Metal Truck Bed Cover

The Renegade Advantage

With your new Renegade Cover in place, the answer is easy. You get to try new things all the time – whether paddle boarding, mountain biking, or snowmobiling. It’s easy to load up your gear and hit the road. 

Metal Truck Bed Covers

Whether you prefer Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, or Bon Jovi, there are plenty of metal bands to compliment your metal truck bed cover. However, it’s important to consider the quality of the aluminum used to build it. 

hard trifold truck cover

Metal truck bed covers are typically made from aluminum alloys, that is, a combination of aluminum with copper, manganese, and more. The most common types of aluminum alloys used in the automobile industry are magnesium and silicon. An alloy that adds zinc to the mix is going to be even stronger, and therefore is what the aerospace industry relies on.

Why Aluminum? 

With Renegade, you can shop with confidence, knowing that its Military-Grade aluminum isn’t shying away from the fight. In addition, with a weight-bearing capacity of 2,000 lbs, you’ll be ready for any load. 

However, you won’t be sacrificing flexibility for all that strength. Rather, with Renegade, you find the perfect combination: a high-quality metal truck bed cover that will withstand whatever challenges it faces, while being incredibly user friendly.
