Waterproof Truck Bed Cover

Choosing the right waterproof truck bed cover can depend on your needs, the planned use of your truck, important features, and your budget. You can check out tonneau cover reviews to help you decide which cover will meet your requirements. You will find many truck covers in the market today.

For example, the Renegade heavy duty tonneau cover is built to resist harsh weather like rain, dirt, and snow. That said, there is no hard truck bed cover that is perfectly waterproof or impervious to water. A good tonneau cover will prevent almost all water from entering your truck bed.

To give the best possibility of weather protection, here are some of the most important areas to consider additional waterproofing in your truck bed.

Truck TailGate Gap

You might have noticed that there is a vertical gap between the bed and the tailgate. If you work with trucks and have towed sand, you may have tried to shovel the load out of the truck. You may have experienced getting sand, or loose gravel stuck in the tailgate gap. Dust from a dirt or gravel road can also easily enter the gap.

There is a simple solution to this problem. You can purchase a window seal at your local hardware store or shop for one online. Seal out dust and dirt by installing the seal on the inside of the truck bed where the tailgate meets the bed.

Front Bulkhead of the Truck

The front bulkhead of a truck (the area that meets up with the cab) may not be completely level with the sides of the truck bed. This feature is common in most truck vehicles. It may not be obvious, but there is a very small gap that does not get covered. This very tiny opening can allow water to enter and sneak into your truck bed.

Truck Bed Rails

Your truck may have long metal bars on the top of the truck bed walls. These are your truck bed rails. Typically truck bed rails are used as tie-down points for different items being transported within your truck bed.

Although truck bed rails are very useful and practical, some bed rails are not constructed to be flat and cannot be secured by a waterproof seal. Without the right truck bed cover, water can enter the bed.
