Truck Bed cover with 5'er hitch

Does anyone have the rollup pickup bed cover and a 5'er hitch? If so, which one?

What do you guys do for storage in back of pickup?

I'm considering the B&W Patriot hitch and a Retrax Pro bed cover. Anyone know of issues with that combination?

Thanks again. I appreciate all the info here.

Bill

I use a Truxedo cover. Roll up, light weight and has 3 support rails. Works great on my Ford Super Duty.

I have a Lund roll up cover over a Husky 16k hitch with a low level tool box in front of the hitch. Everything stays out of the weather unless towing. If hauling supplies I remove the hitch. 2006 GMC Sierra 2500 HD short bed.

I recently bought a Bak Flip G2 and just had my hitch installed last Saturday. I have not put the cover back on yet, but I am supposed to be able drive with it in the folded up position. I would not want it folded all the way to the rear window, but if I can tow with it folded just ahead of the hitch I will be happy.

BAKFlip G2 Tonneau Covers Review

I hope to find out soon.

We had the same tonno which kept our hitch in pristine condition.

X2. Mine is a Ford accessory roll up cover same as the Truxedo TruXport. (Previous owner had a 5th wheel hitch in the bed.) It works great and can support the weight of a lot of snow in the winter while remaining flexible.

The Companion costs a lot more than the Patriot. I was about to get the Patriot. You may not know, but do you possibly know if the Patriot sticks up too high (and your Companion doesn't)??????

No idea. I never considered the Patriot as I didn't want rails.

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