There is one option for a 5th wheel hitch I really like over the rest for your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 with a short bed and the factory puck system, which is from B&W:

- B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch with Slider for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3770

The reason why the Companion is the best is because it is constructed to ensure you have the best possible ride. It accomplishes that with its massive jaw system, cushioned bushings, and a pivoting head; all of these things combine to give you the most comfortable and quiet towing experience possible.

The biggest difference between the Companion # BWRVK3770 and other hitches is the jaw system I mentioned. The jaws on the Companion are a full 1 inch thick and 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 size of the jaws, as well as the fact that B&W's tolerances are +/- .002 inch, are what makes such a huge difference.

I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well of the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch with Slider for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3770.
