Sean’s truck was buried in several feet of heavy snow. This is what happened to his ACCESS® Roll-Up Cover.

There’s a truck under there. I promise!

Imagine coming outside and finding your truck like this. That’s just what happened to Sean T. in New York in late 2014. Pictured here is his Ford F150, which is equipped with an ACCESS® Roll-Up Cover. I’ll let him take the story from here.

“After getting over 7 feet of snow in 2 days back in November 2014 I thought my cover for sure would be shot and I would have to buy a new one. Snow drifts on my truck bed cover were as high as the snow in my yard.”

“The cross bar tubes that support the cover flexed and deflected to the max under the heavy load.”

“To my surprise when I finally got all the snow off the cover the bars flexed back into shape the the cover had not ripped or torn at all! Thanks ACCESS. I’m now looking at purchasing an ADARAC for my truck to haul canoes and kayaks.”

Sean later sent us these photos after he installed his new ADARAC™ Truck Bed Rack System.

As you can see, Sean’s tonneau cover is doing just fine.

Q&A: How to have an ACCESS® Roll-Up Tonneau Cover and ladder rack on your pickup

Many truck owners find themselves torn between installing a tonneau cover or a rack for ladders and other long pieces of cargo. But the ADARAC™ Truck Bed Rack System can let them have both.

Tonneau Cover and Ladder Rack

This adjustable and sturdy rack system is made model specific for the best fit on most Ford, GM, Chevy and Dodge pickup trucks. The ADARAC™ rack sits neatly behind the cab with no obstruction of view, and is capable of carrying a 500 lb. load with ease.

The ADARAC™ is compatible with ACCESS® Roll-Up Covers and other inside-the-rail tonneau covers. For example, here is a review by a pickup owner who installed the ADARAC™ with his hard folding cover. Also, here’s a pickup owner who installed an ADARAC™  even though his tonneau cover went partially outside the rails (See posts 8-10).

The rails on the ADARAC™ system feature tie-down holes running their whole lengths, and the optional load dividers mount to the top bars to help keep loads secure.

Installation is simple and the sturdy stake pocket inserts make attaching and removing the rack easy. It bolts on and unbolts just as easily.
