Tonneau Cover Help

6 posts in this topic

Want to purchase a Truxedo tonnenau cover for my chevy pick up truck. Wondering if anyone out there has a silverado ext. cab chevy that has an otter medium.
MY QUESTION:

Can the fish house be put in the back of my truck with the tonnenau cover down?

Help!

I have an otter medium, but I have a Leer 700 Fiberglass tonnenau cover.

Are you asking about putting the sled in the position it would be towed? If so I don't think you will have any problem there.

I am thinking of getting one of these for my next truck...let me know what you think of it. Pros/Cons for sealing, portability, etc etc.

I have an Otter Resort and it won't fit under my vinyl toneau cover. I measured 18" from the bottom of the pick-up box to underneath the vinyl cover. A fiberglass cover may give you an additional 2-3" and the ability to lock it. I personally like the ability to roll up the toneau for larger loads.

This cover doesn't sit below the bed rails, so as long as the otter is shorter than the bed rails, which I think it is than it should work.

I'd consider the Access vinyl tonneau cover before I purchased the Truxedo. After I reviewed the two of them, I liked the Access better.

I have a 01 silverado, x-cab short box with an access cover. My used ORIGINAL medium otter sled with cabin fits under the cover, but I have to unlatch the back and lift up slightly for the front to clear the back bar that goes across the bed. After the sled is in the back latches down without a problem The access cover is maybe about an inch higher than the bed rails. I'm not sure if the otter II sled is any bigger than the original.
