EGR USA announced the expansion of its EGR RollTrac electric, retractable bed cover product line. New electric applications to be introduced at the 2022 SEMA Show are designed for 2019-2023 short bed Chevy/GMC pickups and Ram trucks with more applications to be announced in late third quarter 2022, the company says.
EGR first entered the tonneau market with 10 international patents in late 2021 with the introduction of a fully electric bed cover for the Jeep Gladiator that integrated with the truck’s remote locking system, featured on-board controls, a smart ECU, and a multi-speed gearbox. Now, after a year of R&D and testing, EGR says it is ready to introduce this same quality standard RollTrac for Chevy/GM and Ram truck models.
Operated by a touch of a button located in either corner of the side rails at the tailgate, the RollTrac provides the easiest and quickest access to the cargo bed for all ages, EGR says. Equipped with an onboard ECU for intelligent programming it offers variable speed operations that are smooth, quiet, and safe.
For added safety, the RollTrac is designed with an anti-pinch mechanism that will sense a possible obstruction and will automatically retract and provide inside LED-mounted lighting. For best-in-class security, the RollTrac cannot be activated when the vehicle is locked or driven and has an interlocking security anti-theft design to ensure that either personal or commercial goods cannot be accessed.
It is manufactured with specially engineered aluminum slats that channel water toward the drainage system diverting water via funneling ports away from the cargo bed to always ensure the truck bed is dry and protected, the company says. Resistant to fading, the EGR RollTrac features a scratch-resistant, lightly textured black powder coat finish that gives it a luxurious look in keeping with the product’s many upscale features.
The EGR RollTrac includes a standard T-Channel on each rail for aftermarket racking systems and has a total load capacity of 330 lbs. Installation is made easy through a bracket system with minor drilling required, and it comes complete with all hardware, wiring harnesses and instructions. Sports bars can be used with an available adaptor kit for the Jeep Gladiator.
“The release of the Jeep Gladiator RollTrac put us on the map in the tonneau market. Now we are focused on expanding this competitive line by building the most well-designed and engineered fully electronic bed covers on the market for the top-selling trucks in the USA. Our customers are the most discerning truck owners where quality, taste, and amenities are paramount in the decision-making process,” said Mike Timmons, EGR North American Aftermarket vice president of sales and marketing. “In a Good, Better, Best product offering, the RollTrac will only be top echelon and ideal for men and women that only want the finest.”
