Placement of Curt C16411-204 5th Wheel Bed Rails in Bed of 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500  


I am installing my Curt C16521 5th wheel hitch and need to know what are the measurements that I need to install my base rails C16411-204 in the short bed of my 2015 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab? Thank you


Expert Reply:

The back edge of the front most rail would be 47-1/2 inches forward of the rear edge of the truck bed (not the tailgate) for a short bed truck or 52-3/8 inches on long bed trucks. You can see these measurements in the diagram I grabbed from page 2 of the installation instructions. You can see the instructions by clicking the provided link.

If you don't already have a 7-way trailer connector installed in the truck bed, you can install one using part # 41157.

I've linked you to install videos for the # C16411-204 and the # 41157 wiring harness.
