It wasn't long after the first pickup trucks hit the road that someone, somewhere wanted a cap to cover the cargo box. While the pickup truck bed was the ideal cargo-hauling vehicle, it left its contents unsecured and exposed to all the elements of weather. Truck owners who wanted to protect their cargo (and their trucks) began creating makeshift bed covers, often using wood and aluminum to provide a measure of shelter and security. Soon, hundreds of small shops all over the country were providing local customers with simple basic truck caps.
Leer, and other forward-thinking truck cap manufacturers, realized that a large national market for truck caps was available to anyone who could bring a higher level of quality, consistency and functionality to the product. Through hard work, aggressive promotion, and high-quality products, LEER soon became an industry leader, and trucks by the tens of thousands carried the slogan "LEER - The King of Caps" across countless roads, highways and streets throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Today, one out of every five pickup trucks in the U.S. and Canada will wear some kind of truck cap or tonneau. Today's market offers caps in all styles and prices, in high-tech, high-style fiberglass, or durable aluminum. Manufactured in Woodland, California, Elkhart, Indiana, and Milford, Pennsylvania, LEER is still the name that dominates the industry. By delivering quality products that enhance the trucks they fit, through the industry's largest Distributor network, LEER stands head and shoulders above its competitors.
