  • 5th Wheel Base Rails & Brackets That Fit 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500
    We have the exact 5th wheel base rails and brackets that fit your 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500, and the correct part number is the following: - Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC Truck # C65KR

  • Does Curt Universal Base Rail Kit Fit 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The Curt Base Rail Kit # C16200 is a universal option so technically it will fit your 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 but you will likely have to drill through your frame to get it to fit. To avoid drilling into your frame I recommend using the Custom Install Kit # C65KR instead. Installation instructions have been linked for you to check out.

  • Fifth Wheel Installation Kit That Works With Andersen Ultimate Connection Fifth Wheel Hitch
    If you have the Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch System with Adapter - 20,000 lbs # AM3200. You will need the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC Truck - Carbide Finish # C65KR. These two will work together no problem.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Install Kit for Trucks With Carbon Fiber Beds
    Other than the 2022 Toyota Tundra and the 2019+ GMC Sierra 1500 Denali, I'm not aware of any other currently available composite bed trucks. None of our vendors yet offer a 5th wheel bracket/rail option for the 2022 Tundra, but Curt offers the # C65KR bracket/rail kit for the 2019+ GMC Sierra Denali 1500, as long as it isn't the 5-1/2 foot bed.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails for a 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500
    To add a set of 5th wheel rails to your 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500, I recommend the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit item # C65KR. This set of rails is industry standard which means they will work with most 5th wheel hitches on the market. They fit both the 6-1/2' and 8' bed lengths. To make towing with a 5th wheel easier, I recommend adding the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness item # C53CR. This harness puts a 7-way connector in the bed of your Sierra and allows you...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit and Hitch Recommendation for 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Adaptive Ride Control
    I checked with Curt and their rail kit part # C65KR that is listed as a fit for your 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 6-1/2 ft bed does not have any fit exclusions for Denali or Adaptive Ride Control so it would fit and work great. Then for a slider hitch the A16 slider part # C16521 would be a great option that has a tight and quiet jaw design and a round tube slider. Our customers who have own this hitch really like it so I recommend it highly.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for Short Bed 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500
    I recommend using the Curt # C16541 with custom base rail mounting kit # C65KR, since it is adjustable up to 21-1/2" tall and will work well on your 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500. This is a sliding hitch that will help provide you with the necessary clearance to make tight turns while towing your 5th wheel trailer and the A20 head has a unique spherical axial bearing that allows for 360 movement of the hitch head. This feature is especially important when it comes to coupling and un-coupling...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 for Andersen Hitch
    You'd need a set of fifth wheel rails confirmed to fit your 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 like the Curt part # C65KR which is custom fit for your truck. The Andersen hitch you have is designed to fit the industry standard fifth wheel rails which is what this kit provides. Since this is a custom install kit there wouldn't be any frame drilling compared to universal options. To add a 7-way up in the bed of your truck to make connecting the trailer wiring easier you'd also want the part # 41157 and...

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with a 6-1/2' Bed
    The 5th wheel hitch I recommend for your 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with 6-1/2' bed is the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R20 Slider # C16541. This hitch uses the R20 slider which is needed for proper turning clearance in your short bed truck. The hitch has an interlocking 2-jaw system that provides a 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact to provide less rattle and more security than slide-bar models. This hitch has a 3-Point indicator system, the color coding tells you if the hitch...

  • Difference Between Curt 5th Wheel Base Rail Kits For 2021 GMC Sierra 1500
    That's a good question, and the only difference between the two base rail kits that fit your 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 (6-1/2 foot and 8 foot bed) is the finish. One is a glossy black finish and the other is a carbide black, which essentially means it just doesn't have quite as much shine to it. Otherwise, they are exactly the same, with the same parts and no-drill install in the frame rails of your truck: - Gloss Black Finish: Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC Truck...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Mounting Bracket/Rail Kit for 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500
    Assuming your 2020 Silverado 1500 doesn't have the factory puck system, I'd recommend the # C65KR bracket/rail kit from Curt. The kit provides the industry standard 5th wheel mounting rails that are compatible with your Reese sliding 5th wheel hitch from your old truck. Reese also offers a bracket/rail kit, part # RP56015-53, but the Curt kit I recommended is less expensive and would work just as well. If you'd like to install a 7-way connector in the truck bed, you could do so using part...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 w/ a Short Bed
    Since your 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 has a short bed, you would need either a rotating pin box, if your bed is 5-3/4' in length, or a sliding fifth wheel hitch, if your bed is 6-1/2' in length. These options would allow for enough turning clearance to prevent the nose of the trailer from coming into contact with the cab of your Silverado when making tight turns. If your 2017 Keystone RV Cougar X-Lite 29RES comes with a Lippert Turning Point or Reese Sidewinder pin box then you'll need...

  • Which Curt Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Fits 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 6-1/2 foot Bed
    Curt does offer a set of custom install fifth wheel rails that fit your 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 6-1/2 foot bed with the part # C65KR but the part # C16400-104 you referenced does not fit your truck. Since you have a short bed truck you would need a slider hitch to give you the needed turning clearance like the A16 part # C16521.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    I would be happy to recommend a 5th wheel hitch for your 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Starting with the base rails and installation kit I recommend the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC Truck # C65KR which is confirmed to fit the 6-1/2' and 8' bed of the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and will not require drilling into the frame of your vehicle. Moving on to the 5th wheel hitch I recommend the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Slider # C16521 if your truck...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Base Rails and Installation Kit For 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 With 6-1/2 Foot Bed
    We do have 5th wheel base rails and installation brackets that fit your 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed, but the part number you mentioned is not a fit. Instead, the correct Curt install kit for your truck is the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC # C65KR. These are a custom fit for your truck, which means you do not have to drill into its frame, which is not only good for your truck but also a serious time-saver. The other custom option for rail that...

  • Which Sidewinder 5th Airborne for Keystone Cougar for 2020 GMC Sierra 1500
    The Keystone Cougar Fifth Wheel should use a Lippert 1621 Pin Box so for a Sidewinder 5th Airborne you'd want the part # RP61422. With that said the Demco Recon part # DM8550045 can not be used with a Sidewinder since this attaches to a gooseneck ball and the Sidewinders require a hitch that attaches to the truck bed in four locations like the Reese # RP30047 which attaches to industry standard rails. For a custom rail kit that fits your 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 you could then use the part...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch and Install Bracket/Rail Kit for 2020 Chevy 1500 4x4 Short Bed
    For a Reese 16K sliding 5th wheel hitch and the install bracket/rail kit, you could go with the # C95DR 16K sliding 5th wheel hitch and the # RP56015-53 install kit. However, I'd recommend the Curt A16 hitch, part # C16521 over what Reese offers. Unlike the Reese hitch, the Curt A16 offers a torsion articulating system for the hitch head which helps isolate the tow vehicle from road shock and noise. The interlocking hitch jaws hold the king pin much more tightly around its circumference...

  • Can Underbed Bracket System Fit on 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 6.5 Bed for 5th Wheel Towing
    The underbed rail system we have for your 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 with a 6-1/2' bed is the B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1019-5W which you would then pair with the Companion Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3400-5W. If you're wanting more of a standard kit then you need the Curt Custom Installation Kit # C65KR but this is an above-bed system. At this time a kit like the Under-Bed Rail Kit # RP30868 doesn't exist for your truck. If you want an above-bed kit then the hitch I recommend is the Curt...

  • Is an Under-Bed Mounted 5th Wheel Hitch Option Available for 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500
    By 'standard bed', I assume you're speaking of the 6-1/2 foot bed. If that isn't the case, please let me know. There isn't a puck system available that's like the OEM puck system offered on the 3/4 and 1 ton trucks, but we do offer a solution that might work for you that has the mount for the hitch install so it's under the bed which leaves the bed unobstructed. Once the hitch is removed, there'll just be a single hole in the truck bed which won't interfere with loading or unloading the...
