Hard Tonneau Cover for 2016 Ford F-150 that Can Be Used with Thule Sliding Ladder Rack

Question:

Hello, Ive been searching for a good combo of this for a week and cant find anything that suits what I have in mind right nowinch anyways. I have a 2016 Ford F150 5.5foot box. Id like to be able to fit my mtn bike over the tailgate, and have 1/3 of the tonneau cover closed closest to cab. Id then like a taller rack on the box for kayaks etc nothing ever really too heavy. Im looking at the Lomax cover as it should provide enough clearance when only 1/3 is closed so its not leaning on my back bike tire. With the bakflip it was about 2inch too long so my bike had to be at an angle for it to fit over tailgate with cover being 1/3 closed. I really liked the Thule slide rack forget name and youve referred to it in other posts. This was the perfect one for me till I realized the bars bend inwards for the rack so you cant fold the cover up without hitting these bars. Bakflip makes the rack and cover combo which would suit my needs but Im trying to get a couple extra inches so my bike can be straight over tailgate when the tonneau cover is closed 1/3 closest to the cab. I just really liked how easy the Thule rack was with removing it off truck as Ill only be using it a handful of times a year. Im basically wondering if the Lomax cover and Bak rack would work together, or if you have any other suggestions on a different straight bar rack, or any other combinations. Thanks for your time

The closest we can get to your perfect solution of a hard tonneau cover with the Thule TracRac Sliding Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-508 you really like for your 2016 Ford F-150 is with the Bak Revolver # BAK39329. This is a hard tonneau cover like you want but it's a roll up instead of a fold up. It's the only hard cover option out there that we can guarantee will fit and allow the Thule ladder rack to function properly. The rest interfere with the ladder rack base rails and sliding uprights. It will easily roll up far enough to allow your bike to fit over the tailgate as well.

I attached a review video for this cover on a similar Ford F-150 as yours as well.
