BUT- I've contacted B&W on 4 or 5 occasions and they're always super helpful and knowledgable. Ask them directly.

*slapping head*

Good idea. I just got on their site and emailed them the question!

You can.

When I had my TT, I had a Leer cap but sold it after getting the 5er (too much hassle even though I had rigged up a lift system in my garage). I got a Bak G2 FiberMax (4 sections on a 6.5' bed). I tow with the back 3 sections folded on the front-most section and its great - still covers my tool bin, fuel cans, generator, etc. I looked at roll-ups but don't like soft covers or the price (and loss of box space) with the hard roll-ups.

I have the Pace Edwards Jackrabbit and it is the best cover I have ever had. A little pricey but after having it almost a year now I think it's worth it. Check it out.

I have the roll and lock( Roll-N-Lock Truck Bed Covers | Quality Tonneau Covers ) and like it because they were one of the few, where the cover housing is rather shallow enabling you to put in a taller objects underneath the housing. I have an approx 40 gal aux tank below it and in front of the fifth hitch in a short bed ram. My only drawback is the slide cover runs inside a channel on each side of the box and freezes into place with snow melt.
Of all the things I've lost in my life the thing I miss the most is my mind!

I have the Patriot and the Retrax with no problem. The Patriot is very adjustable.

Jack rabbit

I have a Jack Rabbit bed cove and love it. It is by Pace Edwards. And there is a fifth wheel hitch under it

Thanks guys.

B&W answered.......either one will work with the Retrax. I don't mind the rails, so will probably get the Patriot.

Thanks again.
