I wish I had better news for you but there are no rails that will allow you to use the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3270 in the prep package of your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500. The only available adapter for standard fifth wheel hitches that fits the Chevy prep package, the Demco # DM6194, does NOT work with the Patriot.

This means you will need a new fifth wheel hitch, and if you liked the Patriot, B&W makes what is considered to be an even better fifth wheel which DOES fit into your Silverado's factory puck system. I highly recommend the B&W Companion # BWRVK3770. The Companion is considered by many to be the highest-quality fifth wheel hitch available. With some 400 reviews from our customers who have purchased it, this hitch has gotten a nearly unanimous 5-star rating. It features dual jaws which are a full 1" thick to provide complete contact with your king pin so you can have faith that your connection is completely secure. The Companion is also going to give you a much quieter ride with less rattling than other fifth wheels due to that secure connection, along with the polyurethane bushings it has.

This hitch also has a pivoting head to make hooking up easier, a cam-action latch to deter binding, offers three different height settings to ensure you are level with your fifth wheel and has a towing capacity of 20,000 lbs.
