TruXedo TruXport aerodynamic design

The TruXport is an economically priced choice for protecting your truck bed, installing easily in minutes and cutting gas costs with an aerodynamic design that reduces tailgate drag.

close view of TruXedo TruXport clampsTruXedo TruXport Velcro rails

TruXport installs with rails along the top of your truck bed walls, held in place by clamps - three per side. A front and rear header hold the cover assembly in place; Velcro strips along the rails secure the cover; and weather seals on all four sides help to keep dust, rain and snow out of your truck bed.

TruXedo TruXport dual latching system with built-in tension control

The TruXport features a dual-latching mechanism that secures the tonneau cover at your tailgate. This mechanism includes a built-in tension control that automatically sets the tension of your tonneau cover when the rear header is snapped into place. This ensures that you never need to manually adjust the tension of the cover. The latches can be released one at a time, so you don't need a partner - or a giant wing span - to open the cover.

 TruXedo TruXport cover rolled up and stored

A pair of security straps holds the tonneau in place behind the cab when it is rolled up, allowing full access to the truck bed. The rear header and crossmembers roll up with the cover to form a compact roll. The cover unrolls and latches in seconds, forming a secure rear cargo area when used in conjunction with a locked tailgate. TruXport cannot be released unless the tailgate is opened first.

TruXedo TruXport low-profile appearanceTruXedo TruXport wide view of low-profile appearance

The TruXport offers a smooth appearance on your truck bed with no arched bows. The tonneau cover rails sit only 1-1/2" above your truck's bed rails.

Video Transcript for TruXedo TruXport Soft, Roll-Up Tonneau Cover Review

Hello neighbors. It's Brad here at etrailer. And today we're taking a look at the Truxedo truck sport line of soft roll-up tonneau covers. Now this line is available for a variety of different trucks all the way from a five and a half foot bed up to an eight foot. So it's important to use our fit guide to put your vehicle information in. That way you get the proper tonneau cover for your truck.

Tonneau covers are a great addition to any truck for a few different reasons. And one of 'em is just normal driving. It's gonna cut down on the amount of drag that's in the bed because normally the air will go down and kind of circulate causing drag. And it's gonna reduce your gas mileage which probably isn't that great anyway so you might as well get a fighting chance. This will actually reduce that drag and has been shown to have a 10% increase in gas mileage.

So that's pretty cool. Now the great part about it though and another awesome feature of tonneau covers is the fact that we have this loaded up and not only does that keep these things and items out of the eyes of anyone passing by. And, you know, if they can't see what's in there they may not be tempted to go in there but also the rain and snow and any other debris or road grime or whatever comes your way is not gonna get on your items that you have in the back of the truck either. Now there's many different types of tonneau covers out there on the market. And this is the soft tonneau So what does that mean Well, this is actually a soft vinyl and this is gonna hold up to weather.

No problem. In fact, the Truxedo brand has been around for a long time and they've had soft covers for pretty much the whole span of being in business. And they've held up over time. People I've talked to that have had 'them love them and there's a lot of benefits to the soft ones. First off, you're probably going well, it might sag.

That's not the case. There's those that kind of go across here to give that support and then also uses hook and loop along the rails. And it tensions really well when you snap it in place. And the great part about this is the fact that you can roll this up and still have full access to your bed. That's where some of the other ones maybe fall short You do have your folding hard style which you'll have segments that kind of roll back. But the unfortunate part is once it's rolled up to store it up, it blocks your rear view vision. So that's kind of something that you have to give up with that style and they are pretty nice because they're pretty secure. And I'll admit this one it's for security purposes maybe not the best option because, yes, someone could cut through this if they wanted to gain access to your bed but really just deterring them from being able to see what's in there is half the battle. And the main thing is it's gonna protect it from the weather. So, you know, don't really have a trunk on your truck but sometimes you have your family loaded up and you need to keep your contents nice and safe while it starts raining. And that's where this comes into play. Now I did mention it rolls up and it's very easy to do. You have latches on each side and we're just gonna pull this one down and you'll see the tension that really keeps this nice and taught is because of this mechanism. So you're gonna wanna hold on to this edge as you pop this open and then rolling it up is a one person easy job. You just simply go back. And that hook and loop kind of keeps it in place. You also have these bows that keep it nice and secure. And that way you can kind of use that to make sure that you are rolling it up even and it doesn't have to be perfect because once you get back here, you're gonna be able to strap it in. In fact, you can see they have a strap included here that just kind of rolls over here and on the backside there's gonna be just a loop that we can hook that in. And that way you've gained access to almost all of your bed. Really, you're only losing maybe a couple inches but you have the entire bed to still work with and you still have all of your rear view visibility. This way, your truck can still be a truck. And while I'm here, I'm gonna point out these brackets which makes the entire installation no drill. They just simply clamp down on the inside of your bed rail there and goes on to these teeth, giving it nice tension. So as you tighten, it's gonna make sure that it's cinched up and it's really hard not to get this perfectly aligned because it's got little grooves right here that it slides in the channel. This goes underneath and gives it a firm feel. And that way you just tighten this down and you're good to go. So that is an added benefit. There's really no modification required and just simply clamps on to your factory stuff. And that way, if your vehicle's a lease or if you upgrade your trucks every so often you could always take this off, sell it, or transfer it to another vehicle if it fits it. But it's kind of nice to not have to drill or make any permanent damage to your vehicle Unrolling it is also very easy as well. So that way, if the rain comes in and you need to get going, no problem One person again can do this and you're gonna see it does look like it's sagging but once it gets back to those clips that tension's really gonna draw this back to where it's gonna tighten it down Super easy to latch down. You're just gonna put this portion here in these channels and it's gonna click in place. Now you're gonna see it takes a little bit of tension here but that's why it stays nice and taught. And you're also gonna have this nice weather stripping here. So when you close up your tailgate it's gonna create a nice seal here. That way water's not getting in. Now, the hook and loop on the side is also a great way. Once it's latched down to just kind of give it a nice little tug to really get that tension out it's gonna iron it out and make it nice and smooth Once installed, you're gonna see, it's gonna add about an inch and a half of height to the top of the bed, which is pretty low profile. And overall it has a really nice look, especially if you do use your truck, as trucks are intended and the bed's all scratched up, this is a nice way to kind of cover that up and give the truck a nice appearance while also getting that reduction in drag and covering all of your items. Now, when it comes to choosing a tonneau cover I would say I would go with a soft tonneau for a few reasons actually Number one, it is definitely more budget friendly than some of the other ones on the market. And it may not have that security to be able to lock this or, you know, be cut proof. But, honestly, the other ones have some drawbacks. In fact, they have these fold-up style, which again blocks this and there's also roll-up styles, but there's a large canister that sits there to retract that in. So you do lose that bed space. And, honestly, I think these look really good. It kind of gives it that classic tonneau cover look. And there's other versions too that are the full covers and those limit you, because if you have to put anything tall in your bed, you really are out of luck until you take the whole tonneau cover off. So this offers a lot of bang for buck and you get all the accessibility to be able to cover this. You can get to your entire bed, you can use your bed. And, overall, I think this is a great option for any of you that just wanna protect the contents of your vehicle. And that was a look at the Truxedo truck sport line of soft roll roll-up tonneau covers..

TruXedo TruXport Soft, Roll-Up Tonneau Cover - TX279101

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (336 Customer Reviews)

Avoid the hassle of traditional, snap-style tonneau covers, improve gas mileage and upgrade the look of your truck with a TruXport. The cover attaches on top of your truck bed side rails with clamps and rolls up to store conveniently behind the cab.


We actually purchased this tonneau cover out of desperation, and because it was fairly inexpensive. Got a new truck, have a lot of long trips planned pulling a trailer. Need to cover our truck's bed. Want to get an ERA or Leer topper, but the wait for those is 3 or 4 months. We couldn't wait, so the TruXedo cover was a temporary solution.
Having said that, I am pleasantly surprised how nice this cover is. I'm enjoying using it. Installation was easy, the cover fits tightly, and the velcro sides work well. I recommend this product.

2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Good value for the price. Looks great on the truck. Does not roll up as easily as it appears in the video.


this cover went on in less than 30 min instructions were spot on


The cover worked as promised. I do like how well the cover helps to keep everything in the truck box dry and out of sight. Very easy to install and took me only 45 minutes to assemble and put in place.


Easy to install. Alignment is a little tough not work well with my truck for fifth wheel towing. Excellent clearance


Very happy with the Tonneau Cover. Truck has been kept inside, so not a whole lot of sun and weather on it. Not a single issue. Even the velcro that holds it down still works as new (something I was initially worried about)

2022 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Was so easy to install. Took probably 15 min. Looks nice too.


I had the cover for 1 year now and it's still like new. It was very easy to install and very well made. Everything stays dry inside the bed now.


Cover works great. Very satisfied


Arrived as scheduled. Easy to assemble following directions. Looks great. Fits very well.

2013 Ram 2500


This cover has lived up to expectations. Good coverage, easy on and off. And durable. I would buy it again if needed.


Easy to install works well no issues




Review from a similar TruXedo TruXport Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers

I ordered a Truxedo Truxport Tonneau cover for my ram 3500. It arrived with a broken hook that holds the cover open when rolled up. I called Trailer customer service and they could not have been any more helpful or understanding. A free replacement arrived in short order. THANK YOU Etrailer

It is holding up well. I have had this brand Tonneau on my last three trucks and all held up well and did a good job. Very pleased

Review from a similar TruXedo TruXport Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers

The installation on my 1998 Dodge pickup with 8' bed was easy and the fit perfect. I bought this mostly to keep the snow out. It keeps all moisture out. I did use a piece of foam weather stripping along the front edge to provide a seal. I live where the summer temperatures can be over 100 and winter below zero. It can also be very windy. After one year the cover is in perfect shape.

After another year of exposure to harsh elements, the cover is still working and looking great. This past summer I did remove it to use a slide in camper. Reinstall was quick and easy.

Review from a similar TruXedo TruXport Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers

This is my second time getting this tonneau cover. I had one on my last truck that I also ordered from etrailer. Simple to install and keeps the weather out of the truck bed.


Review from a similar TruXedo TruXport Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers

Although my truck is garaged, this is a quality Tonneau Cover. It was easy to install and it keeps my truck looking neat and clean and provides better gas mileage. When you want it out of the way, simply pull the release latches after letting down the tail gate and lift it to release the velcro and proceed to roll it up behind the cab where it has 2 hooks and a rubber strap to secure it. I love it!

Still love it!

Review from a similar TruXedo TruXport Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers

I needed a tonneau cover to protect cargo in the bed and etrailer had what I needed and shipped it in a timely manner. Super easy to put on and nearly water tight.


Review from a similar TruXedo TruXport Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers

Second one, two different Tacomas, GREAT covers and easy to install!!


Review from a similar TruXedo TruXport Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers

Because I have a fifth wheel pin in my pickup, a roll up cover works well for that! The cover is easy to use and keeps everything in my truck bed dry and out of sight.
It also protects the 5th wheel pic system hitch.


Review from a similar TruXedo TruXport Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers

Perfect fit and easy installation except no mention of the tie down straps mounting. I did have to add 1/2 inch weather strip on the front of my truck bed do to the bed rail caps. Looks great

Great. Still looks like it’s brand new. Works great.

Review from a similar TruXedo TruXport Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers

After a year's use, I am quite satisfied with it. It is more weatherproof than I expected -- admits just a few drops of water at the tailgate in a torrential rain or an automatic car wash, acceptable in my opinion. It is easy to roll up and stow at the header of the bed, can be done from the ground but it does work best to maintain an even roll if you get into the bed and follow it to the front as you roll it. I would buy it again.


Review from a similar TruXedo TruXport Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers

Reviewed a lot of different tonneau covers for my 2004 Chevy 2500 HD (Diesel), but kept coming back to this one, mostly for the ease of installation and functionality. I watched the attached installation video by Etrailer, which helped familiarize the process. I was able to install the cover in about 30 minutes, most of the time spent aligning the rails the way I wanted. Took it for a test drive right after, and loved how it looked and performed, very little bounce or flapping, very tight across the bed. Had a significant rain shower pass through while I was driving, so I was able to see how well it did with water leakage. Only had a few drops inside, mostly because the water splashed up from the road, where an old 5th wheel bracket used to be (holes in the bed), but not along the edges or front of the bed, those were dry. Great product, would recommend this to anyone needing a rolled up tonneau.
