Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500


Hi. I have a question about 5th wheel hitches. Looking for any help on what to buy. Thank you


Expert Reply:

I would be happy to recommend a 5th wheel hitch for your 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

Starting with the base rails and installation kit I recommend the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC Truck # C65KR which is confirmed to fit the 6-1/2' and 8' bed of the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and will not require drilling into the frame of your vehicle.

Moving on to the 5th wheel hitch I recommend the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Slider # C16521 if your truck has the 6-1/2' bed as the slider will allow you to make sharper turns without your 5th wheel trailer contacting the cab of your truck.

If you have a 8' bed or the 6-1/2' bed and your trailer has a rotating pin box I recommend the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Slide Bar Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C16115 with Sidewinder Wedge # C16991.

You may also be interested in the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness w/ 7-Pole Connector and Cover Plate # C53CR which will add a 7-way connector to the bed of your truck to connect your trailer.

Lastly you will want to check the owner's manual of your truck to confirm the maximum towing capacity and use the lower rating between the 5th wheel hitch and your vehicle.

I included videos for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
