Hi all...Do any of you know if there is a tonneau cover we can use for our 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 short box truck, and still haul our 5th wheel? We have a 25 ft Jayco, with pin extendion and Quick slide.....Thanks...Bev

somebody will be sure to respond. they do make vinyl covers that open in the center for the 5th wheel hitch. I used to see it advertised in trailer life all the time, but don't recall seeing the ad in a while.

The Roll N Lock brand will work if you don't need it covered while actually towing. The Roll N Lock rolls up to the forward end of the bed and requires only about 10 inches of space, leaving plenty of room for the hitch, even on a short bed. I used one on a GMC Sonoma short bed many years ago when we had a small fiver.

I've seen the zip-opening fabric type that John mentioned but can't find a source online. Don't know if they are still made or not.

Thank you Gary...I like it. A bit pricey, but ebay may have it cheaper. I like it better than any that roll back. And I don't believe some of the others go far enough back to allow for 5th wheel to hook up. Especally with a short box.....Bev

A friend of mine has this on his dodge short bed 2500 and loves it. I'm thinking of doing it once I get a new truck. I had a hard cover and sold it once I started pulling fifth wheels and goosenecks. I had a soft cover on another truck and hated it. The rollups seem the best of both worlds.

Use the dogpile search engine, and search term "roll-up bed cover". You'll get pages of results beginning at an internet special of $599, all the way up to $2,999 for an electric-remote operated cover.

I use a four piece folder on my 2500HD short bed. It's OEM from GM, is rigid, and folds from the front or rear, Also lockable. In the $ 800 range if I recall correctly.

Thanks Emmett...We just had one like that put on our truck. It is called a Fold-a-cover LS11. In fact Keith is getting a seal put on today, that will reduce any chance of leakage. But it seems to be just what we are looking for to use with our 5th wheel..Keith and Bev

I installed the Fold-a-Cover to my F350 long bed about a year ago. It's as good as advertised. I can recommend this cover.
