It works perfectly for mid-size and mini trucks, though. For a larger pickup, you could do what you suggested, but you'd want to bond the seam on both sides, or just hinge it at your union point. That would help out, because you wouldn't have to lift it all the way up (weight and leverage) to load a couple small items aft of the axle.
This would make a cheap diy bed cover, one thing though

I always thought the purpose of a DIY bed cover was to only cover the rear half of the bed to increase FE and improve aero?

So maybe it is big enough for a fully size pickup as you only want to cover half, which half I can't remember.
