  1. Zane & Josh, The Merva Brothers Co-Founders, GM-Trucks.com May 2018 Spring has finally arrived here in New England. That means we’ve got a ton of home improvement projects ready to go and a few weekends fishing on the schedule as well. With those projects and a need to haul our 16-foot canoe in mind, we set out to find a solution that would cover our cargo and haul our larger items without damaging them or our Sierra. When we found two Access Cover products that fit and work together for a perfect solution we knew we had to check them out. Today we’re discussing and installing the Access Cover LORADO Roll-Up Cover. Pronounced "LOW RAH DO", kinda like SILVER-ADO, this low profile soft roll cover is an affordable solution for anyone in in the market for a bed cover. In the near future we’ll cover part two of our spring utility upgrade by sharing our install of an Access Cover ADARAC Utility Rack. Here's the two of them installed. Let’s install the LORADO Roll-Up Cover and see what we think. What is it? Access Cover LORADO Low Profile Roll-Up Cover Model Number 42289 for 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado / GMC Sierra 1500 w/ 6’ 6” bed MSRP: $490.45 (as of May 2018) Manufacturer Website: https://www.accesscover.com/lorado/ Installation Time: 1-hour Installation Difficulty: Easy with basic mechanical skills and a helping hand Main Features Automatic dual locking system Four sided sealing XT-DIAL Tension adjustment One person open and close with hook & loop seal Cover rolled up storage straps Low profile design that only sits 1-inch above the truck bed Competitive Products Truxedo Lo Pro Extang Revolution Tonno Pro Lo-Roll What We Like Slim design doesn’t spoil your truck’s style One person easy roll up and roll out Aluminum frame and clamps won’t rust or spot The price point What We Don’t Like Not as waterproof as we hoped along the side rails No option for premium cover fabric (think convertible car type fabric) Not as secure as a hard bed cover Taking The LORADO Out Of The Box The Lorado soft roll-up bed cover comes neatly packaged in a cardboard box. It’s shipped rolled up in the same manner as you would roll it up on your truck, so no creases or stress are put on the cover material during shipping. Included is all the hardware and rubber sealing that you’ll need to install the cover. All of the included parts, fasteners, and adhesive strips are of a high quality. A general instruction manual and a vehicle/model specific manual was included for our application. The hardware package for this install includes pretty much everything you'll need aside from tools. In just about 10 minutes we had unpacked our Lorado and it was ready to install. Installing The LORADO The documentation and installation manuals are concise and complete. This roll up cover fits multiple generations of Chevy's and GMC's but clamps to each in different ways. We started by laying out all of the included hardware and familiarizing ourselves with what we were about to do and how it applied to our 2011 GMT-900. Above is the entire hardware package laid out neatly. You can see the clamps, gaskets, bolt threading tool, and cover tensioners. The only thing not included that we ended up finding extremely useful was two small hand clamps. Having the hand clamps to to hold the rail perfectly in place while securing the cover to our Sierra's bed was invaluable and cheap. Even so, this entire process was completed easiest as a two person job because everything needs to be lined up within tight tolerances to look good. A special tool to snake the mounting hardware into place is included, which was a nice touch. After getting the rails square on the bed it was just a matter of clamping everything down. Special care is required to make sure you don't tweak the side rails out of plumb as you snug the included clamps. We had to tighten and loosen various clamps a few times to get everything to stay lined up and tight at the same time. After securing the side rails and making sure they were aligned property, it was time to add the rubber gaskets. Access Cover includes two lengths of rubber seal that you'll have to cut and affix into place. The larger gasket runs up front with two smaller sections of gasket in the rear. The rubber gaskets are affixed with 3M adhesive tape. Lastly, it was time to set the actual cover in place and use the tensioners to connect the cover to the side rails. The tensioners allow you to get the cover drum tight when closed. Ours only required a little bit of adjustment to get looking just right. We did find that after a few days it needed a minor tightening due to stretching. Since the Lorado seals using a hook-and-loop type fastener (aka velcro), closing and snapping the rear bar automatically secures the sides. That's a huge advantage over "button-snap" covers. In about an hour we were entirely done and ready to hit the road. The LORADO In Practical Day To Day Use Coming from a competitive and more expensive metal roll up cover we were initially skeptical of how beefy the Lorado would really be. Those fears were quickly erased when we started using it. We appreciated just how little room the Lorado takes up in our bed. It has a small footprint and lets us load up our bed to its full capacity. The Lorado is also easy to roll up from one side of the bed, which we didn't expect. Gaining access to the Lorado is straight forward. The pull cord release is located inside the bed and allows the fabric to slack and roll up. The tailgate must be lowered to open the cover, which means items inside are semi-secure as long as the tailgate is locked. We've yet to use our Lorado in a heavy rain storm to see how water tight it is. We did notice a small amount of water entered the bed through the side rails after we washed our Sierra with a hose. The cover has stayed tight during some wild temperature swings in the Northeast lately and has been a valuable tool during our recent excursions to the hardware store. We can't wait to haul home some drywall and other building supplies for our home projects soon. UP NEXT: We install the Access Cover ADARAC Aluminum Utility Rack Final Thoughts If you're looking for a lightweight bed cover that doesn't take up much space, won't cost a fortune, and you can install in your own garage, the Lorado is a fool proof option.
