5TH Wheel Hitch Recommendation For a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Short Bed With OEM Puck System

Question:

I'm having a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD built and want to get a 5th wheel hitch here so its ready to drop into the truck when it arrives. The truck is a short bed and I opted to have the factory in bed hitch system installed. What 5th wheel hitch do you recommend that I use?

Expert Reply:

I recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3775 for your 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD with the short bed and factory prep/puck system. This hitch has the mounting system built into it so you will not need a separate adapter to convert the prep/puck system to industry standard rails. The hitch is rated for trailers up to 20,000lbs with a maximum hitch weight of 5,000lbs. The slider will move the hitch back 12" and you can adjust the height of the hitch from 17"-19" tall.

Be sure to have a Lube Plate # RP83002 for your 5th wheel pin box as this is far superior to using grease between the plates. It will help to reduce the hitch noise and extend the life of the hitch components.
