Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2023 Chevy Silverado Short Bed w/ Factory Puck System


What is the highest capacity sliding 5th wheel hitch that fits the puck system on a 2023 Chevy Silverado 3500. I would like one that gives the most travel. I will be pulling a 20k lbs 5th wheel trailer.


Expert Reply:

The highest capacity slider, with the most travel, that fits the 2020-2023 Chevy puck system is going to be the Demco Autoslide item # DM8550035. This autosliding 5th wheel hitch has a 21,000 lbs capacity. It will give you 14" of travel from front to back.

The base of the Autoslide has a built-in rack-and-pinion gear system that operates automatically. As your truck turns, the pinion in the base also turns. The head slides toward the tailgate when you turn and back toward the cab when you straighten out. This is all done automatically so no more getting in and out of your truck when backing or turning your trailer.

You will need the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter item # DM6333 to attach the autoslider to your Silverado's puck system.
