Default topper + tonneau at same time?

I assume this cant be done because they would both mount the same way. I am having a bedrug put in and I would like a tonneau cover to use almost year round but I will need to put a cap on two weeks of the year for family trips. Any way to avoid completely removing the tonneau to install the cap? any specific tonneau recommendations? I would want one that does not have a one piece top so I can put bigger items in the bed.

It depends upon the tonneau. I would think you'll have to modify the clamps that hold the cap, but I bet it can be done.

What about when the topper is on, having the tonneau open, and using C-clamps to hold the topper on?

For two weeks out of a whole year it would just be better to switch between one and the other. Just get a Soft topper since they are lightweight and can be stored in a bag for the 50 weeks its not in use.
