1. TonnoPro LoRoll vs TruXedo Lo Pro

Similarities

TonnoPro LoRoll and TruXedo Lo Pro are both top quality tonneau covers. 

To start with the obvious similarity, both are soft roll-ups. This means that they are easy to use, offer easy and fast access to your cargo and they are super lightweight.

Lo pro tonneau cover
Lo Pro

Construction

The covers have a similar construction, with each having an aluminum frame and a vinyl tarp. 

The vinyl fabric is not as tough as the hardened plastics and metals used on hard-folding covers. 

But they still do a great job at keeping your cargo out of sight of possible thieves as well as safe from the elements.

The aluminum rails, will offer both support and structure to the cover.

Profile

Both of these covers come in sleek and low profile designs, sitting only 3/4 inches above the bed. 

As a result, they are not easily noticeable from the sides.

The low profile also creates a flush and aerodynamic appearance which improves looks and reduces fuel usage.

Tension control

Loroll and lo pro self-adjusting tension control

LoRoll and Lo Pro are both suitable for any type of weather and temperature; hot or cold. 

The covers have self-adjusting tension control. This means that they will adjust automatically according to the temperature. 

When it is too hot, they will tighten, and loosen when it’s too cold.  All these will happen without you having to do any manual adjustments.

Locking mechanism

Neither of these two covers have a separate lock. They both latch then lock with the tailgate and so it is advisable to have a lockable tailgate for better security.

Mounting position and additional accessories

Another important similarity between the two tonneau covers is their mounting mechanism. Both covers are mounted inside the truck side rails. 

There are several benefits to this. First off, it leaves the stake hole pockets open.

Accessories like racks install on the truck through these pockets. This is only possible if the tonneau cover installs inside the truck side rails and not on top of them.

Mounting inside the truck’s side rails also enables these tonneau covers to resist water better than the covers that install on top of the bed rails. 

This is because the fabric overlaps over the edges and block out the water. For the covers that install on top, it is only the rails that cover the edges and they cannot completely resist moisture.

Differences 

LoRoll
Lo pro tonneau cover
LoPro

Construction material type

Though both covers are made using vinyl fabric, they are different types of vinyl.

TonnoPro LoRoll is made using 24 oz. vinyl fabric which is easily the toughest vinyl fabric in the market. 

While TruXedo Lo Pro’s industrial-grade vinyl fabric is also very strong, the 24 oz. is a little bit tougher and more durable. 

Cover finish

If you love glossy black finishing, then Lo Pro should be the one for you, while Tonno Pro LoRoll is for people who prefer matte finishes.

Warranty

Both LoRoll and Lo Pro are backed by lifetime warranties. But, there is a slight difference. 

For the TonnoPro LoRoll, it is the frame that is backed by a lifetime warranty. The tarp is under a 10year warranty. 

On the other hand, Lo Pro comes with a lifetime warranty for the whole package.


2. TonnoPro LoRoll vs TruXedo TruXport

TruXport is one of the most popular yet affordable roll-up tonneau covers.   

Though the performance is almost similar, TruXedo TruXport and TonnoPro LoRoll tend to have a handful of differences. But first, let us look at the similarities.

Similarities

Tonnopro loroll
LoRoll
Truxedo truxport tonneau
TruXport

Construction

Just like Lo Pro and LoRoll, the TruXport Tonneau also has a two-piece construction; that is, a vinyl tarp and aluminum frame. 

Locking mechanism

Also, the locking mechanism of the two covers are similar. Neither have a separate lock, but they lock with the tailgate.

This ensures top security, but only if the tailgate is lockable. 

Differences

Tonnopro loroll toneau
Lo Roll
Truxedo truxport tonneau
TruXport

Construction material type

Truxedo TruXport is made of industrial-grade, leather-grain vinyl while TonnoPro LoRoll has a 24 oz vinyl fabric. 

As highlighted earlier, 24 oz vinyl is tougher than leather-grain vinyl.

But if we are to compare the weight capacity and stability of the covers, TruXport seems to have an edge. 

It can support up to 250lbs of evenly distributed weight against Tonno Pro LoRoll’s 150lbs.

Cover finish

The finishing of the two covers also distinguishes them. While Truxport has a sleek and glossy finish, TonnoPro comes in a rugged and neat matte finish.

Profile

When installed, TruXport sits about 1.5 inches above the truck bed. TonnoPro LoRoll sits only about 3/4 inches above the bed. 

As a result, LoRoll has a very low and aerodynamic profile, against TruXport’s standard profile. 

This means that Tonopro is more streamlined, more aerodynamic,  and leads to less consumption of fuel.

TruXport, however, has a bold and rugged design which some might prefer.

Tension control

Manual tension control

Both of the covers have a tension control system. The difference is, TonnoPro has a self-adjusting tension control while TruXport has a manual one.

This means both covers are usable under any temperature and weather, but one needs manual adjustments.

Mounting position and additional accessories

One main difference between TruXport and LoRoll is how they mount on the truck. TruXport installs on top of the bed rails, while TonnoPro LoRoll sits and installs inside the bed rails. 

Because of this, the LoRoll allows the installation of other accessories. But this is not the case with TruXport since it installs on top of the rails and covers the stake hole pockets.

Expectedly, the level of moisture resistance of the tonneau covers is also different. As we mentioned earlier, TonnoPro LoRoll mounts inside the truck bed rails, with the fabric creating a form of seal on the edges.  

For TruXport which is mounted on top of the rails, the fabric is not able to cover the edges. 

Instead, it is the rails that are on the edges. These rails are not exactly waterproof and so could allow the water to seep through the spaces.

Warranty

TruXport is backed by a 5-year warranty against LoRoll’s lifetime warranty.


3. TonnoPro LoRoll vs TruXedo Deuce

If you are looking for something unique with incredible functionality then you want to go with Deuce

Designed to roll open from the tailgate and fold from the cabin, this tonneau cover is not only unique but also offers flexible operation.

While its unique design creates a significant difference between it and TonnoPro LoRoll, the two still share many similarities. 

Similarities

Deuce tonneau cover
Deuce

Construction

Like most roll-up tonneau covers, TruXedo Deuce is also constructed of a vinyl tarp and aluminum support bars as its frame.

The construction is not as sturdy as tri-folds or retractables but still offers good enough protection against the elements. 

Profile

Like the TonnoPro LoRoll, Deuce also has a low profile and gives an aerodynamic look.

This will have a major impact on your fuel consumption. It will also enhance the looks of your vehicle to sleek and neat.

Locking mechanism

No separate locks for either of the covers. Simply lock your tailgate and your cargo will be secure.

Mounting position and additional accessories

Deauce tonneau cover installation

When installing both Deuce and TonnoPro LoRoll, the clamps are attached inside the rails and not on top. 

Thanks to this, the cover will leave the stake hole pockets exposed for the installation of other accessories, thus increasing your truck’s functionality. 

Mounting inside the bed rails will also improve the resistance of the cover to water.

Differences 

Construction material type

Similar to almost all the TruXedo tonneau covers in this list, Deuce is constructed of leather-grain vinyl. For a soft roll-up cover, this is strong enough.

The LoRoll supports up to 150lbs of evenly distributed weight and the Deuce 250lbs. 

Cover Finish

Unlike Tonnopro LoRoll, TruXedo Deuce has a gloss black finish and this creates a sleek appearance.

Opening mechanism

Deuce soft tonneau

This is the major distinguishing feature between Deuce and TonnoPro and even with most other truck bed covers. 

As mentioned earlier, the Deuce tonneau cover is one of the few that offers both roll-up and fold functionality.

This is a major advantage because it offers the best of both worlds.

You get to enjoy the simple operation, lightweight, easy to install design and quick and easy removal, and many other benefits of a roll-up tonneau cover.

At the same time, you get quick access to the upper side of your truck bed, like with most tri-fold covers, and you don’t even have to roll the entire tonneau cover. 

Warranty

The warranties of the two covers is almost similar. But, while TonnoPro has a 10-year warranty on the fabric and lifetime on the frame, Deuce is covered for life on both the tarp and the frame.


4. TonnoPro LoRoll vs TruXedo Edge

The sleek, cutting-edge design of TruXedo Edge truly makes it stand out among other tonneau covers. 

The cover is a blend of style and affordability and compares easily with the high-performance Tonno Pro LoRoll.

Similarities

Construction

Like we have seen, all TruXedo soft roll up tonneau covers are made with vinyl fabric and aluminum support bars. This is the same case with LoRoll.

Locking mechanism

No separate locks or keys are necessary for these two as well. Once your tailgate is locked, so is your tonneau cover.

Mounting position and additional accessories

Just as in the case of TonnoPro LoRoll, Edge also mounts inside the truck bed. It has a super easy installation, using 6 clamps; 3 for the driver’s side and the other 3 for the passenger’s side.

Being that it mounts inside the rails, Edge also allows for the installation of stake-pocket-mounted accessories like racks which increase hauling options. 

Differences

tonnopro Loroll
LoRoll
Edge soft tonneau
Edge

Construction material type

Though both tonneaus are made of vinyl, TonnoPro is made of 24 oz. vinyl while TruXedo Edge has industrial-grade leather-grain vinyl construction.

Cover Finish

Edge has a sleek and glossy black finish which gives an alternative for truck owners who do not prefer matte finishes.

Profile

A significant drawback with Edge is that, in as much as it mounts inside the truck bed, it still sits 1.5 inches above the truck bed. This gives it a standard profile, instead of a low, which is usual for most soft roll-ups that install the same way.

Tension control

Tension control for loroll and edge

During hot days, the tonneau cover tends to expand and hang inside. On cold days, the cover will shrink and tighten.

Both of the conditions may affect the tonneau cover’s looks.

To prevent this, both TruXedo Edge and TonnoPro LoRoll are fitted with tension control systems.

The only difference is that Edge has a manual tension control but LoRoll has an automatic one.

Warranty

TruXedo Edge comes with a 5-year warranty both on the frame and the tarp.


5. TonnoPro LoRoll vs TruXedo Pro X15

Last but definitely not the least is TruXedo ProX15. This is one of TruXedo’s best sellers -deservedly- because of its sleek and flush profile among other outstanding features.

Similarities

Pro X15

Cover Finish

Most TruXedo tonneau covers come in a glossy finish. But, Pro X15 comes in a matte finish which makes it similar to LoRoll.

Tension control

Both covers feature automatic self-adjusting tension control systems. This eliminates the need for manual adjustment with every change in temperature. It also keeps your cover looking tight and nice.

Locking mechanism

Similar to all the others, TruXedo Pro X15 does not have a lock. It is designed to lock with the tailgate, so that after latching it and locking the tailgate, it will be safe and secure.

Mounting position and additional accessories

Like TonnoPro LoRoll, TruXedo Pro X15 also mounts inside the truck bed rails. Besides allowing for the installation of other accessories, this also improves the tonneau cover’s resistance to water.

Differences

Pro x15 tonneau
Pro X15

Construction

TruXedo Pro X15 is constructed using premium, superior-grade matte-black woven fabric. This distinguishes it from TonnoPro LoRoll and other tonneau covers in this list. 

Profile

While LoRoll also mounts inside the truck’s bed rails and only sits about 3/4″ above the bed, Pro X15 has a much more streamlined profile that lays flush on the bed with zero inches above the rails. 

The tonneau cover mounts flush with the truck bed and lines up with the bed rails, making it barely noticeable from the sides.

Pro X15 is the best choice for anyone who prioritizes good looks and streamlined profiles over the other features.

Warranty

Both tonneau covers have limited lifetime warranties, except, LoRoll has 10 years for the tarp and a lifetime for the frame.


A soft roll up tonneau cover may not provide unbreakable, and maximum security against theft, but it definitely has many other benefits.

All these tonneau covers mentioned above offer those benefits and are worth the investment. All you need to do is look into the minor differences and find what works for you.
