LEER Announces Trilogy Tonneau,  The New Standard in Performance and Value

ELKHART, Ind. – LEER®, North America's leading manufacturer of fiberglass truck caps and tonneaus for more than 40 years, launches its latest innovation – a new folding, hard tonneau named Trilogy. The top-mount Trilogy, begins shipping this month with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at $989, and is exclusively available from authorized LEER dealers.

Trilogy is designed for maximum functionality, protecting the truck bed and its contents while being exceptionally easy to use. The new tonneau is lightweight, tough, secure and comes with a three-year limited warranty. It can travel in both open and closed positions, is able to accommodate large-size cargo, and can also be completely removed for complete bed access.

“The design of our new Trilogy is superb, a perfect blend of functionality, convenience and value,” said Kevin Page, vice president of sales and marketing for LEER. “Consumers using their trucks for work or for pleasure are going to give Trilogy a very serious look.”

The ultra-versatile Trilogy can be installed by LEER dealers in minutes. Trilogy’s unique features include:

Durable Surface for Lasting Beauty

The Trilogy’s aluminum cover is constructed with a special alloy hardener and treated with a UV-resistant fluorocarbon for dent resistance and a colorfast finish. The interior is filled with a dense XPS solid core, formed under more than 8,000 pounds of pressure for maximum durability. In addition, the extruded outside aluminum edges have a sleek beveled profile, delivering nearly three times the strength compared to competitive products. Durable powder coating keeps the entire surface looking new.

Convenient LED Lights

A pair of LED lights illuminates the interior of the bed, making it easy to see gear and latches.

Meticulously Designed Latches and Latch Hooks

Simply lock the latch lever in place to secure the cover at the tailgate. The latch hardware is threaded, allowing easy height adjustment for a custom, completely secure fit. The latches fit into a recessed channel pocket, staying out of the way when not in use. When tightened, the latches hold the cover securely in place while driving with the cover either folded back or folded flat.

Double-Sealed Hinges

At folding points, extruded aluminum hinges are double sealed to channel water to the outside edges of the truck bed, keeping gear dry.

Safety Tie Downs

Adjustable tie-down straps hold the cover securely in place when folded back, leaving two-thirds of the truck bed open and accessible.

Extra Security

A locking tailgate prevents access to latches for added extra security.

LEER Locker Wins Coveted Award from SEMA Specialty Equipment Market Association

LEER Locker Wins Coveted Award from  SEMA  Specialty Equipment Market Association

ELKHART, Ind. – At this year’s SEMA convention, LEER®, North America's leading manufacturer of fiberglass truck caps and tonneaus for more than 40 years, won the prestigious LTAA (Light Truck Accessory Alliance) 2013 Best Product Over $500 award for the LEER Locker. A storage system mounted to the ceiling of a truck cap, LEER Locker turns unusable space into a handy storage compartment.

more

The LEER Locker functions similarly to an overhead sliding drawer, allowing truck owners to stow away up to 100 pounds of gear, keeping it hidden and secure. The drawer features dual locks, one on each side, to keep the LEER Locker securely in place. Storage dividers can be adjusted to hold sports equipment, camping, hunting and fishing gear, and more. The LEER Locker comes with a one-year limited warranty.

In addition, SEMA editors selected the LEER Locker as a “Top 25 Product from SEMA 2013,” noting:

“If you own a truck cap, but want a smart, secure way to stow small gear, LEER has come up with a solution: the LEER Locker. This storage system is mounted to the underside of the cap's roof, and slides to make it easy to access tools, parts, camping equipment, or whatever else you may want to store there. When the Locker is slid into place, it is far enough back that prying eyes can't see it.”

LEER Model 180CC Fiberglass Commercial Cap Cuts Fleet Costs

LEER Model 180CC Fiberglass Commercial Cap Cuts Fleet Costs

ELKHART, Ind. – Fleet managers and owners are paying close attention to the growing popularity of the Model 180CC, a mid-rise fiberglass commercial cap offered by LEER®, North America's leading manufacturer of fiberglass truck caps and tonneaus for more than 40 years. The reason: the 180CC can squeeze a lot of value out of tight budgets – and look great doing it.

more

Here’s how:

  • LEER designed the 180CC to enclose approximately 20% more interior space than traditional cab-high caps. That added space means extra room for more cargo. More cargo per trip means fewer trips. Fewer trips mean lower fuel costs.
  • When speaking of fuel efficiency, the slippery shape of the 180CC cuts through the wind far more efficiently than traditional truck caps, reducing the coefficient of drag, a key component of highway fuel mileage.
  • The added space inside the 180CC becomes particularly economical when it covers low-cost, fuel-efficient compact pickup trucks, because it enables those smaller trucks to replace bigger, more expensive full-size pickups for many tasks, throwing thousands of dollars per vehicle back onto the bottom line.
  • Another big savings comes when fleet specs include matching paint, because the 180CC is painted to match original truck manufacturer’s paint formulas at no extra charge. What may otherwise be a cost-prohibitive improvement in appearance is a standard feature with the LEER. It’s an enhancement that fleet managers welcome – especially when there’s no price tag attached.

Fleet managers also appreciate the base-cap and option-list format of the 180CC build process too. This flexibility allows them to add just the features – tool boxes, dividers, lights, power sources, etc. – they need, without paying for any unwanted extras.

LEER Fiberglass Commercial Truck Caps Popularity Continues to Grow

LEER Fiberglass Commercial Truck Caps  Popularity Continues to Grow

ELKHART, Ind. – LEER®, North America's leading manufacturer of fiberglass truck caps and tonneaus for more than 40 years, creates a favorable impression among service professionals and contractors who count on their trucks to work hard in the field. Steadily growing sales volume of the LEER Model 100RCC suggests LEER has found the right combination of “beauty and beast” to satisfy demanding fleet and commercial cap customers.

more

The 100RCC has the aerodynamic contoured styling and high-gloss color-matched paint of traditional fiberglass caps, but is factory-reinforced to bear up under the demands of true commercial use, including roof rack loads of up to 400 lbs. In addition, purchasers can specify a wide range of options to accommodate their tools, parts, building supplies and other equipment that needs to be transported securely to and from their jobsites. Optional galvanized side toolboxes on the 100RCC can be configured with shelves, dividers, and rubber mats. The toolbox doors are solid fiberglass secured with drop-T style handles that protect the contents with locks that engage the door frame at three points for high security. Work lights, racks, and power supplies can all be specified for the interior, while outside on the cap roof, the roof rack system fits the jobsite requirement.

According to Elizabeth Peck, National Fleet Sales for LEER, contractors, service professionals, and other commercial customers recognize the importance of creating a positive first impression; many also put their work trucks on the road for family duty on weekends. “For more and more commercial cap customers, today’s work truck has to work hard – but it has to look great too,” Peck said. “Our 100RCC fiberglass commercial cap and its slightly taller cousin, the 180CC, give contractors a chance to combine aerodynamic styling with professional-level durability.”

LEER is also the source of one of the most famous names in traditional aluminum commercial caps; the DCC. Its rugged aluminum TIG-welded Super-Frame and long list of customizable options make it the right choice for the toughest, most demanding work environments.Contractors, service professionals and others who would like more information on the entire line of LEER commercial caps can visit www.leerfleet.com or contact an authorized LEER dealer in their area.

Long-Time Truck Cap Giant LEER Offers National Fleet Programs

Long-Time Truck Cap Giant LEER  Offers National Fleet Programs

ELKHART, Ind. – In response to demand from larger regional and national fleets for cost-effective commercial caps for pickup trucks, LEER® parent Truck Accessories Group, LLC has triple the capability of competitors with its production capacity for aluminum caps, with operations in Elkhart, Ind., Woodland, Calif., and Milton, Penn. National manufacturing delivers a level of service, quality, cost-efficiency and choice to the thousands of fleet managers who up fit millions of pickup trucks each year.

more

The LEER network gives national and regional fleets an advantage by enabling them to specify the LEER DCC cap that fits their requirements, and have the same product built under exacting specifications at three different locations. Throughput is greatly accelerated, while transportation distances are shortened and shipping costs are greatly reduced. Once fabrication is complete, the benefits continue, with installation and service support available from the industry’s only true coast-to-coast Dealer/Installer network. Every step of the way, from bidding through manufacturing and installation, the coordination of contracts of national scope is in the hands of an experienced and dedicated LEER fleet specialist, Elizabeth Peck, National Fleet Sales.

While the LEER DCC aluminum cap still tackles the toughest commercial jobs, LEER has seen growing interest in its new line of fiberglass commercial caps. These caps (LEER models 100RCC and 180CC) use augmented lamination specs for strength and durability, and offer commercial-grade lock, tool box, side door, ladder-rack, lighting, storage and security options. When combined with LEER aerodynamic custom-fit fiberglass designs and base-coat clear coat automotive-quality paint mixed to match truck manufacturers’ formulas, the fiberglass commercial caps are ideal for the lighter-duty field assignments of jobsite supervisors, service technicians and others who need to create a good impression while on the road.

With so many choices for commercial and fleet customers, LEER has spent extra effort organizing resources to help commercial customers make smart choices. LEER has produced informative print and electronic presentations that lead a prospective commercial customer through the decision-making process, showing all the commercial cap options in a clear and logical way. LEER has also established fast-track inquiry, bid and quote handling to expedite responses to fleet prospects.

Fleet buyers also have access to the new LEER website dedicated to commercial products, www.leerfleet.com. This fresh, interactive site enables fleet customers to explore every aspect of LEER commercial products in pictures and text, and gives them free use of an online tool so they can select all the features and options they want as they “build their own LEER.” The result is a clear definition of the LEER cap that will do the job – complete with specifications that allows LEER to construct a custom price quote.

Commercial cap customers and fleet managers who want to take advantage of LEER product quality, regionalized cost-efficiency, coast-to-coast dealer/installer support, and the latest in informational tools, can contact Elizabeth Peck (elizabehtp@truckgroup.com) or visit the LEER fleet website at www.leerfleet.com.

The Truck Cap And Cargo Management Companies Team Up To Develop Products That Better Fit With The Lifestyles Of Truck Owners

The Truck Cap And Cargo Management Companies Team Up To Develop Products That Better Fit With The Lifestyles Of Truck Owners

ELKHART, Ind. – In an effort to combine compatible components of an overall cargo management system, Takit, manufacturer of the BedSlide, and LEER®, North America's leading manufacturer of fiberglass truck caps and tonneaus for more than 40 years, partnered together to create products that can improve the experiences truck owners have with their vehicles. "We are collaborating to develop innovative products that work together seamlessly," says Kevin Page, VP of Sales, Marketing and Development for Truck Accessories Group. "We discovered Takit and LEER had the same goals and it was in both our interests to pursue them together."

more

The partnership came as a result of both company's move towards adapting to the lifestyles of truck owners, an effort that enhances the activities in which their vehicles are used. According to Jason Ehrlich, Chief Marketing Officer at Takit/BedSlide, both companies are working together to bring new products to market at this year's SEMA show. "We partnered with LEER to develop a handful of different accessories that can enhance the experience of people who use their trucks for work, hunting, fishing, camping and more," says Ehrlich. "But our current products will be fully compatible with any of the upcoming new products developed from our partnership."

The new products will be unveiled in November at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will showcase a variety of LEER caps that incorporate the BedSlide inside. Included will be LEER's premiere 100XQ cap that has been redesigned and will be on display, installed on a 2014 Silverado and a 2014 Toyota Tundra. "The BedSlide will be used with all of our caps," says Page. "Many of our caps will work perfectly with the BedSlide cargo management system and were designed with our merging relationship in mind."

In addition to a combination of great products, both companies believe the partnership will also help jobbers. "Our goal is to make it easier for the jobber to present packages to the consumer," says Ehrlich. "We're also committed to making the customer aware of these products and how they can integrate them into their daily lives." But dealers won't need to order the two products separately, or try to figure out what cap works with a particular model BedSlide. "The dealer will be able to absolutely sell the two products in combination, and also be able to get them delivered together not independently," says Page.

During the first year of the partnership, LEER and Takit will introduce the cap/cargo product that will be standardized to reach across a variety of outdoor markets. "Later, niche accessories will be introduced that will allow our products to become THE package you need if you fish, hunt or camp with your pickup truck," says Ehrlich.
