The near-$80,000 2021 Ford F-150 Limited we bought to test over the next year came with extravagant options like massaging seats and a built-in generator, but it also came with a bare-ass bed — no bed cover or bedliner. So we sought to install a bed cover to use the 5.5-foot bed more like a large trunk; after all, we plan on this being mostly a daily-driver luxury truck with spurts of towing and hauling.
However, we’re on a budget, as we also need to buy a weight-distributing hitch, bedliner and other accessories. All of that drove the decision to find a sub-$200 bed cover for our 2021 F-150.
