by: 06/03/2022

Easy install the only difficult part was tighting the bolts above the fuel tank.




by:

It's a little harder to mount than I expected. Doing it by myself and takes a little more time. Now that its done I like the look of the mounting this is only the second time I have mounted a 5th wheel hitch




by:

It is very precise fitting. The installer committed on the the precision manufacturing of the parts and we highly recommend this hitch.




by:

I had the BEST experience ever with etrailer! Bought a fifth wheel and hitch. Needed rails and mounting brackets for the truck bed. Shopped online,found what I thought would fit and called them for confirmation. Talked with Donna and she helped me to the finish line! The rails and hardware arrived in about 3 days! THREE DAYS! from Missouri to California! Couldn't believe it. Definitely a repeat customer. If you need any help clarifying the compatibility of the item you're looking for, they are a quick phone call away. Not a long hold time on the phone and Donna was as friendly as she was thorough. Thank you Donna!




by:

This rail system was super easy to install. The linked videos answered all the questions I had. Great product and instructions.




by:

Kit was complete with everything you need and installation instructions were spot on for a rather easy install! Definately worth the price for a "diy"-er!

This kit was much more than I expected. Super rugged brackets with all necessary hardware. Installing it was better than expected with absolutely no cutting. Two man install took two hours.well worth the money. I highly recommend this kit.




by:

I got exactly what I ordered and in perfect condition. The sales representative, Will , was great to work with and helped me decide what I needed for my application. I would definitely refer any of my friends to etrailer in the future.

My hitch and rail kit were installed today by my dealership. The technician didn't report any issues with the instructions or the installation. I'm very pleased with the results and can't wait for my first camping trip.


Comments
The kit was necessary when I switched trucks, from a Silverado 2500HD to a 3500HD. I have not had any issues with the hitch.

Fairly easy install with great instructions. Product lined up perfectly with factory holes. It only took 3 hours to install with minimal help from a second person to hold the bolts for rails down while i put hardware on.
Would definitely purchase again if needed

  • How To Mount a PullRite SuperGlide 16K On a 2020 Chevy Silevrado 2500 Without Pucks
    I do have an option for you if you have the PullRite SuperGlide #2700 which uses industry standard rails but if you have the PullRite SuperGlide #4100 you will need to get the rails from PullRite. For the PullRite SuperGlide #2700, you can use the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # BWRVK2505 which is a custom fit for the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 so you don't have to drill into the frame.

  • What Color Are Base Rails of B&W BWRVK2505 Fifth Wheel Installation Bracket/Rail Kit
    The B&W # BWRVK2505 base rails are a medium gray, the same color as their fifth wheel and Turnover Ball gooseneck hitches. If you click the provided video link, you can get a better idea of the color which doesn't show up too prominently in the product description photos.

    I have a solution for you. I recommend the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2505. It is a custom fit for the 2022 Chevy 2500 HD and its Industry Standard Rails, ISRs, are compatible with B&W Patriot, Curt, Demco, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above-bed 5th-wheel hitches. The custom rails will reduce install time and the bolt on hardware is included.

  • Will the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Work On a 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 With or Without Pucks
    The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3270 will only work on a 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 without the factory prep package using the B&W Custom Installation Kit part # BWRVK2505. The reason it won't work on models with the factory prep package is because of the slider mechanism on the fifth wheel hitch.

  • Hitch Recommendation For A 2021 GMC Sierra 2500HD Short Bed W/ A Heartland Milestone 386BH
    Since your 2021 GMC Sierra 2500HD is a short bed using a sliding hitch will help add more turning radius and help prevent the nose of your Heartland Milestone 386BH from coming in contact with the cab. You can go without but I always highly recommend a slider in a short bed truck out of precaution for the cab and camper nose. When you tow longer trailers like yours turns can be very troublesome in most campsites so the slider will definitely help. The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch...

  • B&W 5th Wheel Hitch Bracket/Rail Kit Compatible With PullRite 2700 SuperGlide foer 2022 Ram 2500
    The B&W # BWRVK2505 Custom Bracket/Rail Kit is a fit for a GM full sized truck, but we do offer a B&W kit that will fit your truck. For your 2022 Ram 2500, you'll need # BWRVK2602. The kit provides industry standard bed rails that will be compatible with your PullRite 2700 as long as it's an ISR series hitch. For a 7-way trailer connector that would install in your truck bed, use # 20110.

  • Recommended Hitch For A 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 W/ OEM Puck Package
    I still highly recommend using a slider since your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 only has a 6-3/4' bed. Using a non-sliding hitch could result in your camper making contact with the cab of your truck when making turns. Since you want a B&W hitch and have the OEM puck system I recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20K # BWRVK3775. It will drop right into your pucks for easy setup. If you do not have the OEM prep package then I...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For A 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 And Lippert Turning Point Pin Box
    For your 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 I recommend the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3255 along with the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2505. B&W is American made and well known for their quality, so the Patriot is the perfect choice for your needs. To complete your setup you'll also want the 5th Airborne Custom Wedge for B&W Fifth Wheels # SWW-06 to lock the king pin of your Lippert Turning Point pin box in the jaws of your hitch....

  • 5th Wheel Hitch with Height Adjustments to Provide the Best Amount of Clearance
    It sounds like you are needing a 5th wheel hitch with the most clearance when towing. The best option will depend on your truck. Whether you have a 6-3/4' bed or 8' bed and if you have the OEM prep package or not. I have listed the best option for each scenario below. You would want at least 5 to 6 inches of clearance between the tops of the bed sides and the bottom of the trailer overhang. This can be accomplished by adjusting the 5th wheel hitch and the pin box on your trailer. 6-3/4'...

  • B&W Patriot Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch & Standard Width Trailers
    That's a good question, so I reached out to my colleague about towing a very wide trailer with the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider # BWRVK3270. They said this bullet point wasn't specific to the Patriot and was a way of saying that the best way to get added turning clearance with a very wide trailer is to use an extended pin box like a Sidewinder as opposed to a sliding hitch. That said, there isn't any issue using the Patriot # BWRVK3270 with your standard-width trailer;...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation For 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 With 6-1/2 Foot Standard Bed
    We can get your 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 with a 6-1/2 foot standard bed set up with a 5th wheel hitch, and for that size bed what you will need is a sliding hitch. The reason for that is this will allow the clearance needed to make tighter turns without the trailer hitting your Chevy's cab. The hitch I highly recommend for your truck is from B&W: - B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider # BWRVK3270 The reason I like the Patriot # BWRVK3270 so much because of the value the hitch...

    For an industry standard 5th wheel bracket/rail install kit for your 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500, I'd recommend the # BWRVK2505 from B&W. The bed rails provided with this kit are industry standard, and fit industry standard compatible 5th wheel hitches from Curt, Reese, Draw-Tite, Valley, Husky, B&W and Demco, among others. The frame brackets utilize exisitng holes in the truck frame, but you will need to drill up through the bed in order to attach the bed rails to the frame brackets. If...

  • Does 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed Need Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch and Hitch Options
    You are right about the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed being slightly longer than the 2016 models; according to Chevy, the 2020 short bed is 82.25 inches while the 2016 short bed is 78.9 inches. That isn't enough of a difference to negate needing a sliding hitch. Even if your use of the slider is limited, it only takes one instance of taking a turn slightly too sharp for your trailer to crash into the cab of your Chevy, causing potentially significant damage to both the truck and trailer....

  • How do I Install the B&W Patriot to My 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500?
    If you have the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3255 (8-foot bed without OEM prep) or the # BWRVK3270 (6-3/4 foot bed without OEM prep), you will first need to purchase the Universal Base Rails # BWRVR3200 (for an 8-foot bed) or # BWRVK2505 (for the 6-3/4 foot bed). For installing the base rails, you will need to remove any heat shield or under-bed spare tire (if you have one). Also, if you have any bed liner or mat, it will have to be removed or cut in order to allow the mounting rails to connect...

    Since you don't have the OEM prep kit you are going to need a set of industry standard rails to tow your fifth wheel trailer with your 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Kit That Leaves Clean Bed When Hitch Is Not Installed
    I have a solution for you, but installing and then removing the bed rails after each use is going to cause undue stress on the hardware components on the bed rails; these components are designed to be installed once and discarded after installation, so there isn't going to be a rail kit that can be used in this manner. For this reason, I can't recommend using a kit with above bed rails like the B&W # BWRVK2505, which provides industry standard 5th wheel rails to mount a hitch in and instead...

    The hitch best suited for your truck will depend on if your 2021 GMC Sierra 2500 is a short or long bed and whether your truck is equipped with the factory tow/prep package which includes the puck mounts in the truck bed. If you have the puck system, for a short bed you'll need a sliding hitch to provide the proper clearance between the front of the fifth wheel and the rear of the truck cab during low speed turns. I'd recommend the B&W Companion, part # BWRVK3775. The US made Companion...
