I have the Reese Revolution and tow with a hard cover tonneau cover on and have no problem getting into tight parking spaces. I originally had a slider before activating the Revolution. Towed it home from the dealer with the slider and went back the next day and had it taken out and the Revolution activated. Really like being able to have the bed completely covered. Does cause some interesting glances while towing and especially when pulling into a campground. Another advantage is the hitch lock, etc is hidden from prying eyes and mischevious hands even tho' it is locked.

People haven't seen a truck pulling a fifth wheel with a full cover tonneau cover in place. It is not a very common sight. I have only seen 3 in 72 yrs.,2of them were mine and the 3rd was on this forum on another one. My first one was an 81 ElCamino with a 24' Alumalite 5th wheel.

So did you custom make that, or buy it like that? I'm guessing you made it, MacGyver

Bought the Undercover tonneau cover on Craigslist $70 and then did all the cutting and additions to it to make it all fit back together so it would work like it normally would. I have another one I gave around $800 for when new and just couldn't bring myself to cut it up in case it didn't work. To hook up or unhook I just take the driverside half off as well as the section behind the pinbox and either hook up or unhook. If we are staying for awhile, I put the pinbox section back in and have a complete cover that works just like a normal one.

I have a Reese 5th Airborne sidewinder and it is worth it's weight in gold. I tow with a 06 Duramax extended cab short wheel base, when I had the stock pin box I was only to turn about 75 degrees before I would hit the cab. With the sidewinder I can jackknife the trailer at 90 degrees and it still has a few inches of clearance. I also park mine in a tight spot and having the sidewinder has made it easier to park.
