In the peak days of summer, there’s nothing like a trip to the oceans, lakes, or rivers of the US to cool down and spend time with the family. The Independence Day holiday in particular offers us a chance to take a quick road trip and get in some quality time waterside. Whether it’s fishing, boating, kayaking, or just an overnight camping trip near your favorite swimming hole, the experts at RealTruck have what you need to make sure your truck is ready for summer fun with these truck accessories that are made for water-centric activities.

Tonneau Covers

You might just think of a truck bed cover as a way to protect your gear from bad weather and theft, but many modern tonneaus offer extra utility. The RetraxPRO XR is popular among watersports enthusiasts, offering a track system that supports accessories such as kayak racks, fishing rod holders, and cargo racks that free up room in your bed.

The SR1 sheds water off the sides of the cover, keeping your gear safe from heavy rain.

Trifecta 2.0

Durable and easy to install, the Trifecta 2.0 goes on tool-free on most applications.

Racks & Carriers

The most popular configuration for a pickup truck today tends to be similar from one brand to another: a big, comfortable cab and a short bed. This puts cargo space at a premium, and if you plan on carrying kayaks or canoes to your waterside excursion, a rack makes managing space in your bed much easier.

Elevate Rack System

If you need a rack that works with a BAKFlip or similar tonneau cover, the Elevate is for you.

Thule Kayak Carriers

Combine these carriers with a roof rack or truck rack to securely carry your kayak and free up room in the bed.

TracOne Truck Rack

Pick your choice of silver or black finishes, bolt it on, and get ready to effortlessly haul up to 800 lbs.

Storage & Organization

It’s easy to lose track of gear and supplies without the right storage solutions for your truck. The UnderCover Swing Case is worth a special mention as it turns the unused space behind your wheel wells into a secure storage area, and it can be detached quickly for use as an auxiliary cooler or tackle box.

The TonneauMate is designed to work with many soft roll-up tonneau covers such as the TruXport and Lo Pro.

Interior Accessories

Whether it’s a sandy beach shore or the muddy banks of a river, it’s not hard to track damaging elements into your truck during a day on the water. That’s why it’s important to protect your seats and floorboards from any permanent stains or damage with a set of seat covers and floor liners. These accessories are also a great way to personalize your truck’s interior.
