My buddy told me to "Never put a camper in a truck with a bed liner" I couldn't get a reason from him and I don't see any reason why not. Then I was reading on Torklift that if you use a bedliner it will void your tiedown guarantee. The only reason i could see is that it makes the bed a little more slippery but not much more.


Do you know any reason for this? My truck has a bed liner and I haven't had a problem yet but don't want to have one.

They are definitely slick. If I had a bed liner, I'd use a rubber mat between the liner and the T/C.

Had a plastic bed liner in my previous 2006 truck. Removed it and put in a rubber bed mat. New truck has sprayed in liner and rubber mat. plastic bed liners are too slippery.

Ditto spray in liner plus a bed mat. Plastic liners way too slippery.

No plastic.  Instead of a bed liner from either a pickup dealer or an RV dealer (both offered crap for lots of $$), I bought 3/4" rubber stable mat for my bed liner.  It's sticky, it's thick, and it keeps the TC bottom edge from contacting the molded reinforcement at the rear of my pickup bed.  I actually had to use two layers of the stable mat.  You can find it at farm supply stores like Tractor Supply.
