More Travel Creates More Cargo to Move


Byline: Bob Kocher

The more we travel and take part in activities away from home, the more cargo and gear we need to carry. Recently I ran across a couple of new products that are ideal for hauling some of that extra gear. The first product is built for pickup trucks that functions to both cover the truck bead and also carry extra gear over the truck bed.

Tonn-O-Rac

Downey Products has recently introduced Tonn-O-Rac, the first cargo rack designed to work with a soft tonneau cover. The Tonn-O- Rac installs directly to the tonneau's rail system with crossbars that can be easily adjusted or removed. It also features upper and lower T-slots for flexible mounting options.

"Our new cargo rack is exciting because it's the first that works in conjunction with a soft tonneau cover," said Robert Castle, executive vice president, sales and marketing, Global Accessories Inc.

"It really creates added value for the buyer by increasing the cargo carrying capacity of a pickup truck. Global Accessories is proud to offer yet another unique and user-friendly solution for consumers to securely and effectively transport their gear."

The Tonn-O-Rac is designed to work exclusively with Downey's Top Spin tonneau cover. It allows users to access the truck bed without removing the rack or its contents by simply rolling up the cover to gain access to cargo. Constructed from aluminum, the rack components feature a durable black powder coat finish for a professional appearance. All supporting hardware is manufactured from stainless steel. The Tonn-O-Rac comes with rise bars, cross bars and truck bed rails The suggested retail price is $714.

Downey Products also will market numerous accessories for the soft tonneau cover cargo rack, including bike and ski racks as well as basket carriers to further address an array of cargo carrying needs.
