Bed Cover and 5th Wheel Hitch

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a bed cover that will work normally and then either flip or roll out of the way when I tow my 5th wheel trailer?

Thanks,

Willie

access roll cover or truxedo cover. I had the access cover on my old 250 and it worked great with my husky slider hitch. I have not gotten a new cover for my new 2008 F350, but I will be getting a truxedo.

I use the Truxedo LoPro on my '05. Works great, when down, it keeps most things dry (I haul seasoned hardwood for furniture building). It holds 3 ft of wet snow very well.

When I'm towing my 5th wheel, it rolls up and stows nicely at the front of the box. As soon as I unhook from the trlr, I roll out the Truxedo cover to hide what ever is in the bed, from prying eyes.

Good luck

Pace Edwards

I have a Pace Edwards tonneau cover on my truck. It works great to keep people out when not towing and rolls out of the way when I am towing my 5th wheel. I do have 2 bungies I leave in place to pull the hitch flat when closing the cover, they remain hooked to the front hooks in the bed of the truck. I also turn the fifth wheel hitch handle over (facing down) before closing the cover.

I just installed a Retrax. Very easy. I believe its the lightest one available which I needed because I tow a very heavy 5er.

I have a rollup cover from real truck. Great cover, its aluminum and supposedly will hold up 400lbs or so on top. It will also slide over the hitch.

I have a Pace Edwards Jack Rabbit and love it because I can lock up the back end when carrying tools back there and roll it up for using the bed or towing the 5th wheel. Because it's a hard one I've not had a break in even in Chicago for almost a year while working.

I would think about any roll up cover would work. I have seen one that folds up as well that may or may not work. I have thought about one, but then decided with a louvered tail gate it would look kinda silly.
