From the article:

"People have different opinions on tailgate nets, but Jeff Jegelewicz of Covercraft explained, “Its main intent is to provide air flow and reduce drag to help improve gas mileage."



It's funny that this is still perpetuated, despite the fact that it's been proven over and over again by multiple venues, including mythbusters, that air flow, drag, and aerodynamics are better with a solid tailgate up. Same as the old AC on vs windows down myth.

That being said, I think these are great for people who tow a lot and like to see. I've done a lot of towing with low deck trailers and flat, low height loads that could not be seen over a tailgate. I'm fanatical about keeping an eye on my load and seeing my straps and stuff, and these are a great thing for that!

Wouldn't it be great if you could flip a switch and get a view from the rear camera?
