Can I Use My 5th Wheel If I Have A BakFlip MX4 Tonneau?  


Can I use the bakflip mx4 in the furthest folder position with a fifth wheel hitch on a 2020 Ford F-250 6’9” bed. Is there sufficient clearance. Can you provide the bed space it takes up in this position both height and length?


Expert Reply:

We do have tonneau covers that will be better when hauling a 5th wheel. Folding covers are not the best option because when folded up it sits above the bed rails quite a bit. This could result in damage to your trailer, the tonneau and your 2019 Ford F-250 when taking tight turns. If you really like the Bakflip MX4 you will need to remove the cover from the truck and keep it in the bed out of the way.

A better type tonneau option would be a retractable tonneau and the Pace Edwards SwitchBlade Part # 311-SWFA18A44 would be my choice. I like this tonneau because it is super low profile and doesn't take up a whole lot of space in the bed. You have the security of a hard tonneau and still get to use your 5th wheel. Comparing it to the Bakflip MX4 it is a lot quicker to close and open the tonneau.

I've included a review video that Randy put together. He does a good job going over all the features and such so check it out to learn more!
