Expert Reply:

The best gooseneck trailer hitch for your 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 with a 5-1/2 foot bed is the Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store Underbed Gooseneck Hitch w/ Installation Kit # C615-632 because of its completely secure system which locks the hitch ball into place with two locking pins as opposed to the standard single-pin mechanism.

This hitch will also install in your '12 Sierra without needing to drill into your frame brackets; I have added a link to a video of this hitch being installed on a Sierra for you to check out so you can see how it installs. The Curt Double Lock Gooseneck Hitch # C615-632 also has built-in safety chain hookups, a 30,000 lb towing capacity and 7,500 lb vertical load capacity and comes with a 7-year warranty.

Since you have a 5-1/2 foot bed I highly recommend using the Curt 4" Offset Ball for Double-Lock Gooseneck Hitch # C602 to ensure the maximum amount of clearance when towing your trailer. I have added a link to a video review of this part as well.
