Best Fifth Wheel Rail and Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500
I am about to purchase a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD Long Bed truck. I am in need of a Fifth Wheel Rail Kit. It appears that the Curt Rail Kit #C16413-204 is the correct one for my truck but I need to confirm that. My truck was manufactured in October and My sales person told me that the 2015 models manufactured after August of this year are different than those prior and that the rail kits designed for the earlier trucks might not fit? Will this Kit fit?

For a fifth wheel rail installation kit for your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 with an 8 foot bed the correct kit would be the Curt part # C16411-204 that you referenced. I checked with Curt to confirm that this would fit your vehicle.
For a hitch to go along with this rail kit I would recommend the Curt Q20 part # C16130. This hitch has a pivoting head and a jaw system that provides 360 degrees of contact to provide a quiet, smooth ride quality.
