Is an Under-Bed Mounted 5th Wheel Hitch Option Available for 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500


is there a puck system for a 2021 Chevy 1500 4X4 standard bed

By 'standard bed', I assume you're speaking of the 6-1/2 foot bed. If that isn't the case, please let me know.

There isn't a puck system available that's like the OEM puck system offered on the 3/4 and 1 ton trucks, but we do offer a solution that might work for you that has the mount for the hitch install so it's under the bed which leaves the bed unobstructed. Once the hitch is removed, there'll just be a single hole in the truck bed which won't interfere with loading or unloading the bed.

I'd recommend the B&W # BWRVK3400-5W Companion Sliding 5th wheel hitch which mounts using their # BWGNRK1019-5W Turnover Ball gooseneck hitch. This setup is compatible with your truck, but will NOT work with 5th wheels that use rotating pin boxes like the Reese Sidewinder/Revolution or Lippert Turning Point.

If your 5th wheel uses a rotating pin box, you'll need a stationary hitch and traditional rail setup. I recommend the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Slide Bar Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C16115. For a bracket/rail kit, use # C65KR. You'll also need SideWinder Wedge # C16991.

If you'd like to install a 7-way trailer connector in the truck bed so you don't need to run the trailer wiring up over the tailgate, use # 41157.

You can see product demonstration videos for the B&W Companion by using the provided links.
