BakFlip Compatible with 5er Hitch?

Just installed a BakFlip F1 bed cover on my Ram 6'4" standard bed just assuming it would provide amply clearance for a 5th-wheel hitch.
I have not yet installed a hitch, still in the process of shopping for a 5th wheel. But after installing the BakFlip I started looking at how it would fold up when using the hitch. I'm not sure there is going to be enough room. It appears that my in bed factory Ram pucks are pretty close to the folded cover over hang.
Anyone have an experience in this situation? These covers are too dang expensive to start swapping out.
