For a great economical tonneau cover that will allow you to attach a stake-pocket mounted ladder rack on your 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 (5-3/4 ft. bed), I recommend the Access Lorado Soft, Roll-Up Tonneau Cover # A93FR. The Access Lorado cover comes with a durable, UV-resistant vinyl cover that is constructed to retain its shape and avoid fading. Also, the Access Lorado cover includes an element weather seal behind the cab and the reinforced vinyl flap at the tailgate to help to block rain, snow, and dirt.

If you are looking for a hard tonneau cover that will allow you to use a ladder rack simultaneously, I recommend the BAKFlip F1 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK772130. The BAKFlip F1 is constructed with 5/8-inch thick fiberglass-reinforced polymer panels. It also has aircraft-grade, rustproof aluminum rails with black powder coat finish.

If you are looking for a top-of-the-line cover that includes a remote control capability, I recommend the PowertraxONE XR Hard Tonneau Cover # RTX73YR. The PowertraxONE XR comes with a key fob that lets you open and close the cover with the push of a button. Another feature of the cover is the space-saving canister that stores the retracted cover and shields it from the elements. This is a truck owner's dream.

For a ladder rack recommendation for all of these tonneau covers, I recommend the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-782. The TracRac SR has an impressive maximum weight capacity of 1,250 pounds. It also comes with 4 heavy-duty aluminum load stops as well as 4 side cleats that allows you to attach straps. Perhaps the best feature of the TracRac SR is that the rack slides in unique, T-track base rails along the full length of your vehicle's bed. These base rails are adjustable to suit your cargo transporting needs. If you need attachment straps to secure your cargo to your 2021 GMC Sierra 1500, I recommend the SmartStraps Ratchet Tie-Down Straps w/ S-Hooks - 1" x 10' - 1,000 lbs # 348149.
