Extang RT Tonneau Cover ReviewLet me start with a brief description:
The RT Tonneau Cover by Extang is a low profile tonneau cover that sits nearly flush to your truck box. The tarp is made from an industrial vinyl. The bows are not so pronounced as other soft tonneaus. There is what they call a "perfect fit control" at the cab end to keep your cover adjusted to suit the different hot and cold climate conditions. This adjusting is done manually. The rear rail locks at the rear and you must open it with the tailgate down from underneath the tarp. The bows roll up with the tarp. The tarp seals with an industrial Velcro sealing system. There are buckles to secure the tarp when it is rolled up to the cab. This tonneau cover also comes in a tool box edition.
The Rt sits almost flush with your truck box.
The bows roll up with the tarp to give you quick easy access to your truck bed.
Lock on rear for added security.
Protects your cargo from weather, winds from higher speeds and keeps your cargo out of sight from thieves.
Great new look on your pickup truck.
As most tonneau covers it saves on fuel consumption.
Easy installation with no drilling required.
Many say this cover is nice and snug but some say the tarp does flap a little at higher speeds. Some do admit they may have to play around with the adjuster.
Some say they get a little water.
Although the stake holes are usable some did not like the fact the tarp did not cover these.
Make sure the rails are straight for the lock mechanism to work properly.
Although the tarp locks at back but even with a tailgate lock it would not be hard for thieves to get in.
