Recommendation for 5th Wheel Hitch and Under-Bed Rails for 2012 Chevy Silverado 2500


Hi, Im looking at your Curt E16 5th wheel hitch. Do you sell the installation kit with the rails that go under the bed?

I do have a solution for you, however the Curt E16 # C16115 or sliding model # 16516 5th Wheel Hitch referenced in your question is only compatible with above-bed base rails.

If you are wanting below bed rails for your 2012 Chevy Silverado 2500, I recommend looking at the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3370 along with the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30868. This 20K sliding hitch will provide 12 inches of front to back travel for making sharp turns with your short bed truck and features dual jaws that will wrap completely around the trailer king pin for a secure connection. The below-bed rails will allow for complete access to the truck bed when the hitch is removed. The rail kit is confirmed to fit your truck and includes custom-made brackets that will reduce installation time and require less drilling when compared to universal systems.

I have attached an installation video on the 2012 Silverado that you can use for reference along with the written instructions that you can look at.
