While there are ways to mount standard 5th wheel hitchers to a 2019 Chevy Silverado 3500 with the factory prep package, unfortunately the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3270 is the one hitch that cannot be used with the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6194 that fits your truck because the bracing required for the puck locations interferes with the Patriot.

What that means is that you will need a new 5th wheel hitch in order to tow with your truck, and to offset the cost, you should be able to get a very good price on the Patriot because it is such a high-quality hitch.

To replace it I recommend the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R20 Slider for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C16669 because it offers a combination of ease of use, a strong connection to your king pin and reliability.

The A20 has a handy indicator system which will let you know if the jaws on the hitch are ready to couple, uncouple or tow. This color-coded system makes the process of hooking up or disconnecting your trailer much simpler. Its interlocking dual-jaw system makes exceptional contact with your king pin which is going to minimize any type of noise so you can enjoy the ride to your destination.

I have added a link to a video review of the A20 for you to check out as well as a link to all of the hitches that will fit your '19 Silverado 3500 with the prep package.
