Review & Install Video
Hey, I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and this is my quick review and breakdown of the Tonno Pro TonnoFold tonneau cover fitting your 2015 through current F-150 with a five and a half-foot bed. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about the construction and materials of this cover, who this might appeal to, what you should expect to be spending, and then we'll take a very quick look at the installation, where you're gonna be looking at an incredibly easy 1 out of 3 wrenches in the difficulty meter and less than 30 minutes to get this on to your truck.
So this should definitely appeal to any F-150 owner that's gonna be looking for a fold-up design as opposed to a hinged or a roll-up design. So if you're unfamiliar with what a tonneau cover is, we're gonna give you a little bit of a crash course here. So let's take a closer look.
So first and foremost, one of the main benefits of a tonneau cover is going to be to keep whatever you're hauling in your bed safe, secure, as well as dry. Now, this is gonna be great as this is gonna be fully weatherproof so you can rest easy knowing that no matter the elements, be it rain, sleet, or snow, you're gonna have whatever you're hauling be safe and sound.
So not only the aforementioned reasons, you're gonna be keeping prying eyes away from your gear. Now, for me, that could be woodworking gear, tools, camping gear, anything like that that I don't wanna have anybody dipping into my truck and pulling out as it's my property, and I wanna keep it safe, secure, and protected.
At the end of the day, another great reason about having a tonneau cover is gonna be lowering your drag coefficient. That essentially means that when you're driving, wind is gonna be into your bed, and it's gonna be dragging your truck down. What you're gonna be doing with a tonneau cover is essentially creating a little bit more of an even stream so that, at the end of the day, you're gonna be saving a little bit of money at the pump.
So at the end of the day here, guys, from a utilitarian perspective, this is definitely worth its weight in gold as it's gonna be keeping your belongings and your gear dry, safe from the elements, as well as keeping unwanted eyes and hands out of your bed. This is something that I truly think really just completes the rear end of your truck, and it's gonna make it look that much more streamlined.
So in terms of the build quality here, I can absolutely attest this is holding up over time as I had this exact model on my 2014, which Justin reviewed earlier in the year, and it has definitely held up over the seasons. This is also gonna feature a tri-fold design, which I personally like, in comparison to a rollup, which I think it's a little bit on the tacky-looking side as well as in comparison to a hard cover, which is hinged that comes up at the back. One of the reasons why I like this a lot is because it's gonna over the fold-up. So in the event that you have to get anything out of your bed, you could do so incredibly quickly.
So taking a closer look at the materials, this is gonna feature a 24-ounce black textured finish vinyl, which is gonna be marine grade quality, so you can rest easy knowing that, again, you're gonna be keeping all of your belongings dry just as long as this is installed correctly, which I'll hit on a little bit later.
So another thing that I like about this kit is gonna be the frame or skeleton. This is gonna be manufactured out of 6063 powder-coated aluminum. And despite this being on the underside, you're gonna rest easy knowing that it's gonna be able to hold up over time to anything that you're gonna be putting to it.
Another great aspect is that this is not a permanent modification. Again, this is going to go on in literally a heartbeat. So in the event that you're looking to change up your tonneau cover down the road, you could take this off very easily. Or if you need to haul some gear that's gonna be sticking out of your bed, you can pull this off in a minute.
So in terms of how this is gonna install, which I'll hit on a little bit later, this is gonna feature a impact resistant slide lock design as well as having clamps on the underside here. Now, another thing that I really like about this kit is right at the back here, you're gonna see this is gonna have a little extra material here as well as having it on the sides. Now, that's gonna be to ensure that whatever you're gonna be hauling is not gonna come into contact with any moisture, dirt, or anything else that you're gonna be putting your truck to.
So in terms of the pricing here, you should expect to be spending only about 280 bucks for this kit, which, in my opinion, is incredibly aggressive, as this is gonna be at the bottom of the price spectrum. And running this in comparison to some of the other covers out there, you're gonna see that it can easily tip the scales at $500 or even $600.
So looking at the installation, just like I had said in the beginning of the video, you're looking at an incredibly easy 1 out of 3 wrenches in the difficulty meter and less than 30 minutes to get this on to your truck. Now, having this on my own 2014, I can personally attest that it had taken more time to physically get this out of the box than it did to get on my truck. And, essentially, once it's out of the box, the only thing you need to do is gonna be stretching this out, putting this onto your bed, attaching your clamps, and you're good to go. And, honestly, it does not get any easier than that, and it's on par with installing instead of floor mats.
All right, so just to wrap things up here, some final thoughts. I definitely like this option, not only based on the fact that I have this exact model on my own 2014, but for the fact that it really cleaned up the rear section of my truck, made it look a lot much more streamlined, as well as protecting any of my gear that I'm gonna be hauling from the elements as well as keeping prying eyes off of it.
