Recommended Tonneau Cover and Ladder Rack for 2018 Ford F-150 for Rooftop Tent

Question:

Looking to get a rack for 2018 Ford F150 with a roll-up tonneau Bak Revolver. I would want a rack that can support a rooftop tent and preferably easily removed/added when needed. I would like the RTT to be below cab height for aerodynamics.

For your 2018 Ford F-150, the BAK Revolver # BAK39328 for an 8 foot bed is an excellent choice for accessibility and function. Unfortunately there is not a rack that is available that is below cab height that will also work with the tonneau cover to allow you to utilize both. You would either be too low to roll the cover or above the cab.

We have found the best system with this tonneau to be the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack - 1,250 lbs # TH43003XT-000 which is a fit for an 8 foot bed. These two systems work extremely well together, but you will have the wind resistance from being above the cab. This will also give you the adjustability to get the crossbar spread correct for your tent. If you have a shorter bed, let me know and I can get you the correct part numbers.

I recommend the Yakima SkyRise Tent for Roof Rack Crossbars - 3 Person - 600 lbs - Red # Y07406.

Thanks for the response. The truck is a Super Crew with 5.5' bed, so much shorter than the 8' one mentioned.

For your Super Crew with 5.5 foot bed, I recommend the BAK Revolver X2 # BAK39329 or the BAK Revolver X4 matte finish # BAK79329. Then for the TracRac SR ladder rack you will use # TH43002XT-508 or # TH43002XT-508EX if you want the over cab cantilever which is removable. This ladder rack installs in the stake pockets so the inside bed rails of the Revolver tonneau make the two work together very well.
