Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2020 Chevy 2500HD with OEM Prep Package


does the C16530 -16025 fit a 2020 Chevy 2500HD with the factory 5th. wheel package with the 4 hole in the bed?

I have a solution for you, but the Curt # C16530-16025 is not going to fit in the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 prep packages. If you don't already have a Sidewinder style pin box, you'll need to use a slider hitch like the # C16536, which is the same Q20 head as the C16530 you were looking at only with a slider base. To install this hitch into your OEM prep package you'll need the installation rail kit # C88KR, which will drop into your OEM pucks and provide the base rails for the sliding hitch to function properly.

If you've got a Sidewinder pin box, the Curt Q series 5th wheel hitches are not compatible because of the spherical axial bearing that the Q series heads have. For that reason you'll want to use the Curt A20 for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C84FR, which will fit directly into the OEM puck system.

If you've actually got an 8ft bed and no Sidewinder, the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # C57FR is a great choice that will fit in the OEM pucks on your 2020 Chevy 2500.

I've linked some review and installation videos of these parts for you to have a look at.
