I went with the Tri-fecta Tri-Fold with canvas instead of the vinyl covering. Love the look and it works well for me. I also purchased (actually came free with a purchase special) the rear tailgate seal to prevent any water or dust from entering through tailgate. I have the 8ft bed and when folded does not effect the fifth wheel clearance.

Thanks everyone!! With all the options out there I think I might go with a tri-fold. I like to have some coverage (1/3) when towing and the ease folding it closed or take it off.

I have the Extang Solid-Fold and it works great. I had one on my last truck and it's good quality stuff. I have a short-bed, but with the Revolution hitch it works great. Opens and closes quick and easy.
Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.... there are far too many other reasons!

I went with the Truxedo TruXport because I wanted a soft rollup that went over the bed rails as opposed to being inside the rails. Lightweight, simple and cheap. Lots of good options out there. If you want to put it on yourself, has great prices.

Here is a pick of my bakflip when we are hooked to the fiver. It will also flip up against the back window if you need to use the whole box.

Ehorn, thanks for the photo. I have the same tonneau cover but had never noticed the D rings at the cab end. I've just been out to look and low and behold, I have them too! I had been wondering how I could secure the folded cover for when I start pulling a 5er in a few weeks. You've just solved that in an instant. Thanks again.

I had 3 different Velcro roll up covers, they were all or nothing & the Velcro on all 3 came off the rails. Even the one that was replaced under warranty. I now have a tri fold cover & like it. It keeps a third of the bed fairly dry when towing & comes all the way off easily when it is not needed.

Got the same BakFlip. Saw the D-Rings and wondered what I'd use them for. Love my BakFlip! Kicking myself for the 2 1/2 years of ownership without one!
