OK, can see sleep in bed...maybe.....but tonneau cover ??

And if you were gonna do that, just put the tire & gas can outside the bed on the ground, That's what I did when I slept in the bed in the past.

No need for a carrier.

Why do most swingouts go toward the passenger side?

I mounted mine on driver side as far as I could go. I like being able to see out the rear window. I mounted the bearing on driver side as well. We all know how much that tire and trash bag can weigh. Then take it down the highway and on the trail, that's is a lot for any tire carrier bearing to survive. I have been super happy with my setup.
