I recently bought a new Ram and I'm looking for a bed cover as my truck is my daily driver. I want a hard top, but I'm not a fan of the ones that block the rear window when folded up and hauling bikes. Any help is much appreciated!

Not sure what length bed you have..

On my f150 i have a 6.5’ bed. It came with one of those tri-fold covers. It does not work with a bike. Its got to be taken completely off. Might work if you had an 8’ bed.

its a truck
you put stuff in the back like dirt, mulch etc. not a cover, if you wanted it covered buy a suv.

I'd suggest the Undercover bed cover. It's made of plastic so it's light and really strong. The big thing is it's easily removed to haul your bike. It even comes with wall hangers to hang it in your garage when not in use. If you get the standard model in textured black finish, it doesn't show scratches from standing on it or banging it around.

Just buy a Honda Odyssey minivan- problem solved. And they look better than a "pickup truck" with a cover over the bed that's meant to haul manthings by manly men.
Insert hardcore sarcasm at this juncture.

There are a few brands that make metal roll up covers. I had one on my previous truck and I liked the security and versatility, so I will probably get one soon for my new Ram. Looking at either the Truxedo Sentry or Sentry CT.

You obviously do not live where it snows. I run a trifold tonneau cover in the winter to keep my cargo clean, dry, and salt free. It must be removed to load a bike though. Takes under 3 minutes, and it is super light. Trifecta makes it I believe....also on a Ram 1500

Summer I do not run any kind of cover.
