Tailgate - Delete

I know this might be a little off topic of our diesel engine, but I have a question about the truck. I tow a fifth wheel travel trailer with the F-350 and remove the tailgate while towing. My question is, I'm looking for a real good quality tailgate net to replace the tailgate while towing. I would like to have one that has the plastic squeeze thingys to take it off when not using it. All I can find at AutoZone, Advance etc. all have the buckles and can be a pain to put on and take off. Any help here would be appreciated. Oh, one more thing, it would be great to also have "The Blue Oval" on it too.

Of course! Having the tailgate on when towing a fifth wheel is a pia. I know a lot of guys tow with it on, and I was witness to one guy turning his into a "V" one day at a campground because he forgot to drop it when pulling out. I also welded up a "safety pin" that goes behind the hitch pin and I have to get up into the bed to engage it before travel. I never travel with anything behind the hitch so the tailgate holds nothing in. The only reason I want a tailgate net is to make it harder for people to see my RDS auxiliary fuel tank up front. And, on occasion, when I get firewood just outside the campground.

Anytime I pull my gooseneck flatbed I have the tailgate up. Not a big deal for me to just drop and unhook. Are you hooking up and unhooking that often?

How about one of these?
