It's an Access Original soft cover - Truck Tonneau Covers | ACCESS Original Roll Up Tonneau Cover. Nothing fancy in terms of the cover, just something to keep the rain off whatever luggage/camp equipment is in the bed. I think any cover that's inside the rail would probably work.

Yup, the the Gear On bars would be great for around town shuttling. If that was my primary goal I would have looked long and hard at that set up. But I was looking for more of a long road trip set up with the family with our luggage in the bed, probably best to keep the clothes dry.

Depending on your cover you can mount it directly too it i know someone here did it to a bakflip cover holds 400lbs spread evenly across and you can have full access to the bed

Very close to what I did. Peragon tonneau cover, 54 inch Yakima Tracks, Landing Pad 1, Skyline Towers and 66 inch bars. I have a single and a tandem 1upusa bike rack and room to put a rooftop tent. The tonneau cover opens and closes with the racks loaded.

Can you post some pics? I have been looking at the Peragon as well.

What size wheels are on your bike?
I just picked up a trek with 29er wheels and was curious if it'll fit my with my short bed.

I haven't got my new Colorado yet, but I'm looking for the best solution to carry one or two 29ers. Currently I use one of the Yakima tailgate pads, but it's a pain to put on and take off so I usually just leave it on. It looks like hell though and I wouldn't want it scratching up my tailgate on the new truck. I kind of also want to leave a tonneau cover on most of the time.

I'd like to get a hitch mount rack and reserve the tailgate pad for the odd trip when we have 4 people.

Any recommendations for a nice hitch rack? Any that leave the camera unobstructed when in the folded position?

Thanks in advance

They sell retractable covers

I understand that this is a bit off topic, and probably outside of your use case (as initially you had noted you DONT want a hitch mount). But just to give you a perspective on what a hitch mount true West Coaster Mountain Biker style hitch mount rack is like this is my truck, I have the BAK Industries MX4 tonneau cover. Again, I am an avid mountain biker and regularly shuttle with my truck. Use cases are different I awknowledge that, but figured you might appreciate another perspective.

I have a friend with a dodge RAM who has a tonneau cover along with a crossrail style mount yakima rack and it works really well for him (it holds two bikes). He cannot unfold his tonneau cover though (its a hard folding cover).

I have a 4 bike North Shore Rack - Again these are geared towards heavy duty usage for us crazy insane mountain bikers ;). They are tough as nails though. No plastic crap to worry about!
