5th Wheel Hitch and Rails for 2018 Chevrolet Colorado


Greetings, I hope you can help me. I am trying to figure out what kind of rails and installation kit I need to purchase in order to install a fifth wheel hitch on my 2018 Chevy Colorado Z71 crew cab 5 ft bed. I have used your website but it does not show any thing compatible for the above vehicle. I purchased a 2014 Scamp 19 ft fifth wheel, which has a ball instead of the fifth wheel plate, and it came with the hitch but not the rails.

We do not carry a confirmed custom fit 5th wheel installation kit for a 2018 Chevrolet Colorado. However, we do have the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit, # RP30035. This is a compete kit that includes the base rails, brackets and hardware but unlike a custom fit kit that uses existing holes in the frame for a no-drill or minimal drilling installation, this will require you to drill all needed holes for installation. The rails need to be installed with spacing of 22" on center in the bed of your Colorado and I recommend that you have the hitch in place for fitment of the rails and hole location.

If the hitch that came with your purchase mounts into Industry Standard Rails, this kit is what you are needing in the absence of a custom fit kit.
