What brand are the "rail" mounts underneath the bed cover? Is the cover the factory 3 folds model?

roll up

It's a roll-up. Couldn't get that when I ordered my F150 last. Better than the tri-fold by a bunch. What are the rails?

They require drilling into the truck bed which I have factory coated so a no go for me.

12 v or 110 wats?

Best part is you can use a SIM in any of these devices, and set the logic to prefer the bandwidth on the SIM if it's available. If not, revert to Starlink. That would be done all transparently to the user.

5G Store can help you with this configuration, and advise on system current draw.
If I understand correctly it is not the dish itself that requires 110V but the native Starlink router, and replacing this router with a Peplink 12V will do the trick? Sorry if the questions is silly but this is clearly not my field…. I got all the parts and opened the account, now dealing with the installation by AA Toppers. They never did one, in Denver, so they know as little as I do. The F250 has two batteries. On the GT I have 6 lithiums and also carry a Honda 7KW genset, so while being parked is not a problem, but while driving may be one. Both my wife and I still work full time and need the internet when cell is not available. Any advice will be appreciated.

Starlink

It's my understanding that you'll need the expensive in-motion antenna. I "think" Starlink uses software to prevent you from using a standard flat face while moving at road speeds - boosts the bottom line.


If possible I'm going to buy some simple rails to go with my factory tonneau cover. We'll put the antenna on it when we're camping. Better than a ground mount.

Installed

Installed and working, with the power outlet of the F250 while in motion. While parked, power will come from my generator or the outlet at a campsite. In Summit County, CO speed is about 300Mbps
