Expert Reply:

I believe you are asking about the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package part # BWRVK3770. I do have an option for you but according to B&W the rotating pin boxes like the Reese Sidewinders like part # RP34FRare not compatible with the B&W Companion sliders. Even if you were to leave it in the tow position it would still be put too much stress on the hitch.

Since the Sidewinder moves the pivot point back for cab clearance, a fixed hitch is the best option to use with a rotating pin box because you do not want two points of movement. I recommend to use the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package part # BWRVK3705 which is a fixed hitch that fits into the prep package of the 2018 GMC Sierra 2500. This is your best option with the Side Winder because of it's 1" thick jaw design that provides 360 degree contact with the king pin to prevent chucking and rattling.
