Recommended Above Bed Industry Standard Rails and Install Kit For 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 W/ 6-1/2' Bed  


I am going to purchase a used 5th wheel camper that comes with a Reese R20 fifth wheel and the in bed rails. I am looking to buy the outboard brackets that fit these rails and head to make the installation process easier. Is there a set of outboard brackets for make and model of vehicle or are they universal? I am putting the rails and head in a 2016 GMC 2500 with a 6 1/2 foot bed. These rails and head are coming out of a Ford 250. If they are universal I probably wont need to buy outboard brackets, guessing it not going to be that easy and they will be vehicle specific. Any info is appreciated. Thanks


Expert Reply:

The outboard 5th wheel mounting brackets are vehicle specific, so the brackets off of a Ford F-250 will not fit your 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 W/ 6-1/2' Bed,

The outboard brackets are sold with the rails, so I recommend going with the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC - Carbide Finish # C16411-204 which is confirmed to fit your Sierra, and will provide the correct brackets, rails, and mounting hardware to use your Reese R20 5th wheel hitch.

I included a video of the # C16411-204 being installed in a similar 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 for you to take a look at.
