Tonneau Cover and Truck Bike Rack Options for 2008 Chevrolet Silverado


I have 2008 Silverado with a 6 1/2 bed and cargo management. I would like to get a tonneau and a bed rail type bike rack. I pull an RV and the back bumper of the RV will not support a bike rack. Thanks

We can help you select both a tonneau cover and a truck bed bike carrier for your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado with 6-1/2-foot bed with the cargo management system. Naturally some combinations of covers and bed-rail-mount bike carriers will not be compatible if they need to occupy the same space at the bed rails but we can offer you several types of carriers and covers so you can select what works best for you. I can also offer you a different bike rack option that you may prefer.

Tonneau covers for your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado with 6-1/2-foot bed and the cargo management system are shown on the linked page. You can choose from folding, roll-up and other types by clicking on the filters on the page. For a roll-up cover you can use TruXedo # TX271101 or for a hard folding cover BAKFlip # BAK126101.

In truck bed rack that works with tonneau covers we offer the very cost-effective Hollywood Racks Truck Bed Bike Carrier # HRT970. This is a bolt-on product that holds your bike at the fork. It will be compatible with any tonneau cover you choose.

To keep your cover options open you might consider a towing style bike rack like the Swagman XCS # S64664 which slips over your ball mount. This and other towing bike racks can be seen on the included link.
