Expert Reply:

We can get your 2005 Chevy Silverado 3500 set up with a 5th wheel base rail and bracket kit, and I recommend going with an option from B&W, with the correct fit being the following:

- B&W Custom Installation Kit with Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2500

The reason I like this kit so much is because it is a custom fit that does not require any drilling into your frame rails to install, unlike universal kits such as the Reese # RP30035, which do require drilling. Not having to drill is not only great for your truck but will benefit you whether you are doing the install yourself (saving hours) or having a professional do it (less install time equals less expensive labor costs).

This kit will fit both single and dual rear wheel models of your '05 Silverado 3500, and is compatible with all above-bed 5th wheel hitches, including your Q20 # C16130.

I also wanted to mention that real quickly that if you also need a 5th wheel wiring harness for your truck, the correct fit is the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness # C56070.
