Question:

How to integrate this BandW installation with a bedliner : drill through or remove ? Will the BandW 5th wheel saddle mount engage and secure with bedliner in place ? Will the 5th wheel saddle tuck under my Tonneau?

Helpful Expert Reply:

If your F-350 OEM bed liner is the drop-in type, then it will have to be trimmed to allow for any 5th wheel installation. Your tonneau cover should pose no issue, however.

Spray-on bed liners are compatible with 5th wheel installations but the drop-in type has to be trimmed for installing the BandW Companion hitch # BWRVK3400-5W. Metal-to-metal contact is necessary for safe installation of a 5th wheel. This is covered in the written instructions from BandW, which are attached.

This hitch has rails that run front to back on the bottoms of the main leg assemblies and these are intended to fit within the corrugations of the truck bed. This is why the liner has to be trimmed away to provide space for these tracks to make full contact with the metal of the truck bed.
