The flood of brand new ute models arriving on the New Zealand market has prompted Best Bars to re-engineer its trifold Advantage Tonneau Cover to suit the newcomers.
With all the major manufacturers re-designing their utility vehicles in the space of just 12 months, the requirement for a full range of accessories, such as tonneau covers, has gone into overdrive.
The Best Bars Advantage Tonneau Cover is no ordinary tonneau cover – it’s a stylish, new product that resembles a hard surface but is actually constructed from fabric, which makes it superior for covering the cargo areas of working utes.
Covering equipment or materials stored in the back of a ute is a must for trades people, contractors and rural folk. While optional hard lid covers restrict carrying options and are much heavier, further reducing what can be carried in the tray, automotive accessory specialist Best Bars Limited provides the answer with its Advantage™ range of products.
The benefits of the Best Bars Advantage Tonneau Cover over a hard cover is that it can be folded back to allow room for tall items to be carried in the tray. The vehicle can also be driven while the cover is in the open position. Sturdy extruded aluminium is used in the framing and the fabric is a high quality PVC-style material.
Best of all, the tonneau can be easily fitted in only a few minutes without the need to drill holes in the vehicle body. As it comes with its own frame that securely fastens under the lip of the wellside, it can be fitted to under-rail and spray-on liners without any modifications and can be accommodated on over-rail liners with the use of an accessory fitting kit.
It has further advantages over ordinary fabric tonneau covers, which can stretch and tear more easily without the supporting and protective frame that is part of the Best Bars product.
John Frear, Sales & Marketing GM for Best Bars Limited says feedback from customers who have been using the Advantage Tonneau Cover has been excellent with many commenting that it looks like a more expensive hard cover because it keeps its shape and is very easy to use.
The Best Bars team has been working overtime to ensure that the Advantage Tonneau Cover has been engineered to fit the new crop of ute models launched this year, including Ford Ranger, Mazda BT50, Holden Colorado, Isuzu D-Max and Mitsubishi Triton. Fitments are also available for the popular Toyota Hilux, Nissan Navara & VW Amarok utes.
The Advantage Tonneau Cover is supplied completely assembled, meaning there are no loose parts that can get lost. Advantage Tonneau Covers are available through all leading new vehicle dealerships nationwide
