B and W Patriot Fifth Wheel Hitch and Reese Rail kit for 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500


Hello, I have 2018 chevy silverado 2500hd long bed. I could get BandW Patroit RVK 3200 hitch. Now I will need some rails. I researched your site and came up with three different brands : BandW RVK2502, Curt C16411-204, or Reese RP56001-53. For easier of installation, I will buy Reese RP56001-53. Will BandW hitch fit on Reese RP56001-53 rails? I called etrailer few times and received conflicting info, one said yes and another said he was not sure. Arent these inch universal railsinch so it could fit major brand of hitches? Please confirm the compatibility, I will have to make a decision soon. Thank you,

The B and W Patriot hitch you mentioned part # BWRVK3200 is a great USA made hitch that is designed to fit industry standard fifth wheel rails. Any of the rail kits you mentioned will fit this hitch. The Reese kit part # RP56001-53 does fit and would be a great choice. It's an outboard rail kit which means it will install a bit easier than the other ones so it's a great choice.

I attached an install video for the rail kit for you to check out as well.
