Before you answer the question in this entry’s title, consider a couple points:
- If you live anywhere it rains, snows or the sun beats down, yes.

The advantage of a bed cover over an enclosed cap is ease of access to the full capability of your truck’s bed. If you even occasionally carry loads taller than a cap, you’ll soon be frustrated at the hassle of removing and storing it while you transport your load, and then going back to get it. It’s usually easier to borrow someone else’s truck. And that’s not why we own trucks.
Soft bed covers, Like Truxedo’s Lo-Pro QT, can be easily rolled open. They are supported by metal ribs that hold it in a convex shape so that it will shed water. They are an economical and attractive way to keep the box and contents protected.
Bak Flip offers a very nice foldable solid cover, the G2. Its exposed surfaces are all aluminum, it’s very secure and folds up against the cab of the truck in seconds.
ReTrax covers roll away effortlessly on ball bearings, providing unparalleled security and convenience without strings, pull straps, Velcro, or snaps.
