I have the Backflip Fibermax, 4 section. Fold it 3/4 of the way, lots of clearance with the standard pinbox. When I switched to a TrailAir pinbox I had to move the tonneau cover forward a little to clear the shock absorber.

I have a TrailAir pin box as well. That may be an issue. Thanks for the info.

I have an Extang tri-fold on an eight foot bed and have no problems towing when folded. There are clips that hold it in the open position.

Same here. XTang Solid fold cover on an 8' bed. I always cleared my hitch and pin box and also clear gooseneck hitches with no issues.
