Retrax and 5th wheel towing

Hi all

I want to buy a retrax tonneau cover for my new F350 dually

Will this clear the 5th wheel and the hitch of the 5 th wheel?

I would like to just slide it back when towing and when arrive at destination just remove the hitch and close back the bed.

Do not have a 5 th wheel yet this is why i am asking the question before buying the tonneau cover
