Best Tonneau Cover to Protect 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2014 Ram 2500 Short Bed  


So I bought a 5th wheel from entrailers based on your recommendation. It’s awesome band thank you! Now I would like to put a cover on that I don’t have to take off. I have a 2014 Ram 2500 with a 6’4 bed. What can I use?

Thank you for your purchase of the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16521. In order to protect this hitch I recommend using the BAK Revolver X2 Hard Tonneau Cover part # BAK39213. The reason for this is that this is a very strong and durable tonneau cover. It is constructed of 1/4" thick rustproof aluminum slats and has a low profile appearance for a sleek look. It offers a no-drill installation and comes with a three year warranty.

The Revolver X2 is one of our most popular sellers. It will not only do a great job of protecting your hitch from the elements but it will also help to protect it from theft. In order to roll the cover back you will need to lower the tailgate and then use the pull string underneath. Most tailgates are now locking which means they would need to unlock the tailgate in order to get to your hitch. If your tailgate is not locking or uses a manual one you can upgrade/add an electric lock with the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock part # PAL8350 which works with your key fob. The other option for security is a pin lock like the Curt Base Rail Lock for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # C23256.

I have attached review/install videos on the above items for you as well.
