Will B&W Patriot Work on 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 With 5-1/2 Foot Bed


BWRVK3270 Will this work on my 2014 Chevy 5 1/2 ft bed Silverado. 1500.

You can use a B&W Patriot 5th wheel hitch on your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500, but not the sliding option - or any sliding 5th wheel hitch. The reason for that is you don't have the needed clearance to make a sharp turn and a 5th wheel trailer will hit your truck cab. So to tow a 5th wheel with your 5-1/2 foot bed '14 Silverado 1500 you need a fixed hitch and a Sidewinder rotating pin box. For the hitch:

- B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3200
- B&W Custom Installation Kit with Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2503

To find the correct Sidewinder what you will need to know is the manufacturer and model number of the pin box on your fifth wheel and match that with the correct replacement. For example, Sidewinder # RP34FR will replace Lippert 0719, 1621 and 1621HD, as well as Fabex PB 600 Series (68200) pin boxes. If you let me know the manufacturer and model number of your pin box I can find the correct Sidewinder for you.

I have added a link to our entire selection of Sidewinders for you to take a look at as well as a help article on Sidewinders you may find useful. You will also need the Custom Wedge for B&W Fifth Wheels # SWW-06 with a Sidewinder and the Patriot hitch. For a 5th wheel wiring harness on your '14 Silverado 1500 you'll need the Draw-Tite 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Wiring Harness # 20110.
