Anyone have 5th hitch with drop-in bedliner?
If you have a 5th wheel hitch mounted inside of cutouts in a plastic drop-in bed liner, how did you handle the dirt and trash infiltration issue?
I couldn't get the bed liner out without tearing it up when I bought the truck so there's no reason to think I can do it now. I'm leaving it in and working around it. I cut slots in the liner to accommodate mounting of the rails directly to the bed. The bed is still clean and shiny under the sections I've removed.
I'm thinking when the hitch mounting is done, I may screw the cut bed liner edges to the bed with metal roofing screws and try to seal it up with caulk This, in hopes of preventing leaves, pine straw, dirt and miscellaneous trash from getting under the liner.
Truck is a '94 Chev K3500 CCLB DRW. Hitch is a 16K Husky.
