I have a Ram with the Backflip Fibermax. My Demco Autoslide fits under the cover fine when closed up, even with the picture frame adapter for the Ram puck system. The Fibermax is a 4 section cover and when towing I fold 3 sections forward and it locks the 3 sections in place (flat). I'm extremely happy with this setup. Everything works as it should-- Quick & easy.

We have an Extang Solid Fold 2.0. It is easy to install since it's just clipped on, and can also be totally removed with no damage/holes to the truck. It clears the hitch just fine.

Fold-A-Cover, Pullrite SG. Covers it just fine.

Maybe the Q should be...

Does anyone have a cover (brand) that does *NOT* cover their hitch?..[emoticon]

....by intent - or accident (bad choice) and maybe wish they didn't have that brand!

I have the Ram (Curt) 20K hitch and Retrax rolling tonneau cover. I have to bungee down the handle on the hitch so that it will clear the cover but otherwise it works great.

BTW I had a Roll N Lock on my last truck and find the Retrax much better.

I think the only issue you might run into is on the Reese, clearing the handle. That can be cut so it doesn't stick up and then cover will cover.

I agree with Russ.

My Pace Edwards clears after I cut down the pull handle on my Reese 16K slider.

I have a Truxedo rollup with a B&W Companion on a 2012 Silverado 2500. My only complaint is that the rails add about an inch of height to the bed sides and thus I lose about an inch of clearance from the bed sides to the fifth wheel.


My Truxedo is a great cover, but I'll second HTSS's complaint about losing the inch of needed clearance.
