How Much Weight Can A Tonneau Cover Hold?

The weight of a tonneau cover varies depending on the make and model of the tonneau cover itself, as well as your truck. Some brands such as Roll-N-Lock, claim their covers can hold up to 500 pounds, while others may only hold 300 pounds. The maximum amount you should carry is about 150 pounds, so if your tonneau cover says it can hold 500 pounds definitely do not put that much weight on top.

The reason why you should not put too much weight on the cover is because this could permanently damage the vinyl or fiberglass material of your tonneau cover, or even warp it to the point where it will no longer function properly. It can also make it more likely to break in half while you are driving your truck, which would be dangerous if the cover falls on your windshield or any other part of the car.
