Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed with Rail Kit


Can I put a 5th wheel hitch in 2016 ltz z71 crew cab and pull travel trailer with out problems


Expert Reply:

Looks like you have a 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 LTZ Z71 with a 6-3/4 foot bed and the factory rail kit. You can tow a fifth wheel trailer with this truck but since there are no slider hitches available for your truck configuration and you have a short bed truck you would need to go with a Sidwinder pin box on the trailer to give you the needed turning clearance.

For a hitch you would want the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3700 which is a confirmed fit and one of the nicest hitches around.

Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to pick out the correct one.

There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the trailer that will list the pin box number that is on the trailer.

Once you figure out which pin box you have you can check the FAQ I attached that has a chart that shows the correct Sidewinder to get based on which pin box you have.

The correct wedge for the B and W hitch with the Sidewinder is the part # SWW-06.
