Hard Tonneau vs Roller Shutter

Postby Q. » Tue Dec 08, 2020 10:37 pm

I'm getting a new Ranger XLT and tossing up between a hard tonneau cover or a manual roller shutter.

I don't mind the hard tonneau cover, but it can draw in a fair amount of dust when I'm on dirt roads and isn't that useful for transporting anything with a bit of height.

I'm leaning toward the manual roller shutter for having the flexibility of an open tub if need be - just wondering if anyone has had experience with them and if they are a bit more dust proof compared to the hard cover?

I'd go the roller shutter if you can't have roof rack on the tonneau.

I'd hate to have a big ute that can't hold anything over 1800mm long.
