Tonneau cover

I am presently looking for a cover that I can close the box down when my fifth is set up. I have looked at Access soft roll up,Bacflip G2 hard cover,Extang Encore and the Roll and Lock retractable. Does anyone have any experience with any of these or suggestions through experience. I am wondering about clearance.when towing. I have a 2500 HD GMC 6.6 box.
Thanks Bruce

I've had Access covers on my last 3 trucks, two of which pulled 5th wheels. They are great. Low profile rails help with bed to trailer clearance and they will close easily with a hitch in the bed. Also, easy to install. I recommend them!

Bakflip G2 here and no problems, no worries. I have a Curt Q20 and it sits below the cover no problem.

I currently have a Bakflip G2 and this is the 3rd truck I have had a G2 on.
Last truck was a Chevy 2500 short bed towing a 5er and it worked well for us.

I have the Roll n Lock on my 2500, It works well and gives me access to all but 6" of the bed.

I have the Truc cedo Duece

A little pricey,but I like the way the thing rolls up.When you have it closed the fron 2' or so flips back with a lever.Makes getting into the tool box easy.
