Expert Reply:

The factory puck system in the long bed and short bed of the 2021 GMC Sierra 3500 does have the same spacing, so you can use any of the fixed (non-sliding) 5th wheel hitches you mentioned in your '21 Sierra 3500's short bed:

- B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3710

- Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C84FR

- Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C97FR

These are all high-quality 5th wheel hitches, but between the three I highly recommend going with the B&W Companion # BWRVK3710, which is the 20,000 lb capacity option, though there is also a 25,000 lb capacity option, the B&W Companion # BWRVK3715.

The Companion is considered by most - myself included - to be the highest-quality fifth wheel hitch in the industry. The biggest difference between the Companion and other hitches are its 1 inch thick jaws. These prodigious jaws, as well as the fact that B&W's tolerances are +/- .002 inch, are why the Companion - more than any other fifth wheel hitch - minimizes the chucking, jarring and noise that can occur when towing a fifth wheel trailer.

The sheer size of the jaws and their extremely low tolerance are why they act like an adhesive to your king pin. The jaws, combined with the cushioned bushings on the Companion, provide a much quieter, much more relaxed towing experience so you can get to your destination peacefully. I have added links below to some video reviews for you to check out as well if you'd like.
