Good news, I can help you pick out a 5th wheel for your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 8ft bed to transport your 2015 KZ Durango Gold 370RL.

In my research I found that the GVWR of your Durango Gold is 14,500lbs, this is why I recommend the Curt 16K Dual Jaw 5th Wheel Hitch # C16520-16025. This heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch has a dual jaw and color-coded lock indicator for superb safety and security. It has a self-aligning, pivoting head and includes a lube plate to make hookup a snap. This head has a 2-Jaw locking system which provides 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact. This unit also has a lockable handle that lets you easily secure trailer to hitch with a padlock like # ML1KA.

Many customers who tow a trailer also like the convenience of having the 5th wheel plug mounted inside the bed of the truck as well as being at the rear of the vehicle. For a wiring harness that does just that I recommend the Hopkins # 41157.

I have linked the above mentioned products to this page for your purchasing convenience.
