I am a new forum subscriber (4-weeks in) and should be picking up my 2016 3500 Limited Mega Cab 4x4 DRW in 1-2 weeks (on Friday it was coming through Louisiana on the way to Lakeland, FL. I have already purchased a Pullrite 2300 Autoglide 5th wheel hitch. I was wondering if any other RAM 3500 owners with a similar hitch have installed a hardtop tonneau cover and are there any recommendations. I appreciate your experience and input.

Welcome to the forums!

Bak Flip G2

It gives me about 2 inches from the top of the hitch to the bottom of the cover.

I had a soft top - Truxedo. The rails go inside the bed a little. The fifth wheel pin ox on a sharp turn cut into the rail. :(

Just something to look for
That's exactly what I am concerned about. Additionally. is there concern about having a retractable hard cover with a canister? It would take up about a foot of space between the cab and the hitch and considering it is already a short bed (6'4"), this might cause issues.

Thanks again.

I don't picture the canister as being a problem, lots of people (me included) have an in-bed tool box in front. The place where I got in trouble was the side of the bed, where the rails make the bed width a little smaller. The back of the pin box came around and sliced into the aluminum rail for the tonneau.

Thanks for your advice. It is probably best to wait to purchase a cover until my trailer is completed (currently in process; should be done in March) to get accurate width measurement in a turn with the autoglide hitch.
