Can Extang Hard Folding Tonneau Cover Fit Over 5th Wheel Hitch in 2016 GMC Sierra 3500


I have a 2016 gmc 3500 longbed denali. Will this tonneau cover work with a fifth wheel? Would I have to remove the tonneau cover while using the fifth wheel or can it remain in place?

Extang Tonneau cover # EX62455 will stick down from the tops of the bed sides by approximately 2 inches at most and might not have anything in the way directly above your 5th wheel hitch. Also, since you can adjust the height of most hitches I do not foresee there being any clearance issues.

It would be best to take the cover off completely when towing your 5th wheel trailer. The issue is that when folded up the cover is taller and could interfere with the overhang on the trailer especially when turning. A retractable Tonneau cover such as # RT80463 would work though since the cover would be completely out of the way when retracted.
