Retrax Pro MX here. Expensive but the best add-on I've done. Super durable and I keep all kinds of stuff in the bed of my truck with no leaks or worries. Also protects my SuperGlide hitch which I did not want to leave out in the rain.

Truck Bed Cover with 5' er hitch

I have been thinking of getting a cover for my 2015 Ram 3500 short box longhorn 6.7. Do any of you who have covers (thinking about a soft top tri fold) also tow with a 5th wheel tailgate installed at the same time, or just the normal gate?

I install the Stromberg composite 5th wheel tailgate when on a trip and switch back to the stock tailgate when back home. Takes only a minute to make the switch. Not a soft cover, but a 4-section Bak FiberMax where I can tow with 3 sections folded flat on the fourth.

I did a lot of research when I was looking for a cover . I wanted a hard cover so that when covered I wouldn't have to worry about someone with a knife cutting cover to see what was inside the bed . I also didn't like that after a few years the vinyl covers start to fall apart and with the roll up covers they cost way to much for my pocket . I talked with ford and they quit handling the room up covers because of problems in icy areas and people breaking them , I found a cover from Paragon covers that is made of aluminum and you can order standard black or colored to your truck . It mounts on rails like most and folds up to the head of the bed , it can be removed with in a couple of minutes if you need that extra 2 inches . It has a lock so that it can be locked at the front of the bed by the cad of the truck and not by the tail gate so no one can just pop it open . You can only find this cover on line @ Paragon covers and the price is about the same as the low cost ones and they cater to the 5th wheel user in mind . I have had many wanting to know where I got mine because of how easy it is to use .

That is why I got a trailer instead of a 5th wheel. Didn't want to loose my garage.

You only lose above the rails. You'd be amazed how much stuff you can put back there and stay below rail height.

I ordered my Tri fold with my truck. The quality seems better than some of the aftermarket brands I have seen.
It has 4 quick latch clamps, you can take the entire thing off in a minute and stick in the back seat.

Roll n Lock. Best thing I bought for truck. Store 2 sets of golf equip back there and a bunch of stuff. I also have the full "tow gate" which it ALL LOCKS TOGETHER WITH ONE KEY IN 3 seconds!! All over the USA the past 5 years! NEVER EVER ANY THEFT OR WATER IN MY TRUCK BED. Gate is light weight BUT built VERY STRONG. Takes 10 seconds to take it out when I want to. Not cheap. But secure for sure.
I leave my factory tail gate at home when traveling. Dodge is a 2 min off!
