    Choosing a rack for truck

    I want to get my husband a bike rack for our GMC Sierra 1500 as a gift. We generally throw our bikes in the bed to go riding. But when we go camping, we cannot take the bikes because we donít have room for the bikes plus all of our gear. When we go on road trips, we use a tonneau bed cover to put our luggage and stuff in the bed, so that also doesnít work for taking bikes. (We have 2 kids, 2 car seats in the back seat, so no room for anything else in the cab.) Because of our need for bed space and using the bed cover to keep luggage from getting wet, I am leaning toward a hitch rack. We currently carry 2 adult bikes and 1 kids bike, but eventually itíll be 2 adult bikes plus 2 kids bikes. Any recommendations for those? I visited REI, and I am leaning toward a Thule apex 4. Or would I be better off with a bed rack? I do not want a roof rack. Thanks!

    Is it a hard tonneau cover? I have seen racks that go on top of the tonneau cover...

    No, it is a soft cover.
