Install your fifth-wheel trailer hitch in your truck bed with this kit. Custom brackets reduce the amount of time required to install the hitch. Brackets, 10-bolt base rails, and necessary hardware included.


I bought this kit because it looked like the strongest and best engineered and most effective ...this has proved true. I have no experience and I put this on our truck on the ground and without taking the wheels off. There were holes in the bed already but this was a mixed blessing. I can't say it wasn't fiddly, it was especially at the front end of the bracket trying to fit and tighten bolts blind above the fuel tank (I didn't have to remove it). I tightened down and loosened the whole set up a couple of times (more a truck problem really) but eventually it all felt snug to the chassis and secure (most importantly). There was only one place I intervened with a correct thickness block of hardwood (see pic which goes all the way up under the bracket against the chassis, a shim if you will, (I'd have preferred a steel or maybe resin block but didn't have any – I think the manufacturer should consider this?) – at least the wood would compress a bit when tightening. I had to use the secondary hole on the bracket on the driver side (see pic) because of the fuel tank. When I tightened up the driver side bracket (and no matter how I did it) it lifted the bracket off the chassis at the front which didn't look or feel as good as the other side (which was much easier to attach using the preferred hole). The shim seemed to help equalise the pressure along the whole of the bracket and has stayed firm since. Anyway, I took my time and the unit has done everything I'd hoped for – you've reminded me that I need to check all the bolts again! Anyway, thanks :)


Have to tighten bolts is some very tough areas to get to. Give yourself plenty of time if doing youself or frustration awaits you. Other than drilling through sheet metal in you truck bed no other holes required.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado Classic

Fit great! Bolted right onto our truck frame and matched up perfect with our hitch.


Great product. However, frame brackets started to rust right away. I don’t live in a state that uses salt on the roads, and I wash my truck often. It’s the one thing that keeps me from rating it a 5.


Has held up great with constant salty air and spray. Feels way more solid to pull 12k with this than my previous setup.


Great product. Would purchase again. Customer service was top notch


The installation kit was missing 5 washers, I had to find replacements because I need to get the kit installed to pick up our 5th wheel. So I couldn’t wait for you to send 5 washers. Other than that, it was easy to install and had good directions. It is well made and should work well.


Great purchase from etrailer, as usual. Free shipping on items that total 90lbs., thanks! The B&K kit is very good, heavy duty, very strong. Should do the job well. Dinged one star because for my 2006 Duramax 3200 required lowering the gas tank of which there was no mention in any video or description. Video showed installation on passenger side, that was easy. Driver's side not so much. I got everything hooked up with the exception of the two bolts that go through the bed on rear-driver's side. Had to take it to my mechanic to finish up (did not want to mess with the gas tank). Other than that, all good.

Bob's thoughts


Product is great very heavy duty, reasonably easy installation except for two bolts above gas tank which required lowering the tank. Over 10K on the road and working great.


I use it under a b&w 16k hitch,everything works well.

Did not have to drill my frame to install.

Once fitted to my hitch, instalation of the hitch is easy.

Only complaint I have is no spacers on the u bolts between the frame and the rails where the rails don't fit the frame.


My experience with you was fantastic, from shipping to installation. All parts were in the packages with instructions.
The hitch is a quality product and I am glad it is completely manufactured in America using American materials. Thank you!


The rails fit my truck perfectly. When I receive the package there was some slight damage to the package and one U-boat was missing. I called and they immediately shipped a replacement bolt out great service. Customer service was outstanding I had some questions on the installation having a little difficulty getting a bolt and nut installed they walked me through it and made it very easy to understand and complete the installation. They followed up several weeks later to make sure I didn’t have any issues with the rails or the installation. That’s customer service at its best.


The online site was easy to navigate. The shipment that I ordered was delivered promptly, and in good condition. I just received the shipment today, prior to replying with this review. According to the bill of lading and the package labels, I am satisfied that these are the correct parts for my B&W 5th wheel hitch application.

2005 GMC Sierra

Received my hitch and mounting rails today. Still in the boxes
Arrived in good shape
Can't wait to installed it

My hitch has worked great

Ram 3500

This rail kit has served me well. I have put 3500 miles on it since installing it. Easy to take the 5th wheel hitch on and off. My only issue was during installation where I thought the instructions should have indicated larger clearance holes in the truck bed. This makes the install easier and does not compromise integrity.

2002 GMC Sierra

It wasn’t to bad to do. The hardest part was to get the u-bolt nuts and washers on. Didn’t have any issues drilling the holes instructions were great on where to place the rails to mark the holes. Was missing a nut for the big bolts but had some laying around that I could use.


Very easy install great product

2004 Chevrolet Silverado

This hitch install bracket fit perfectly, fairly simple installation, clear concise instructions, and came with everything I needed. Not to mention a good price and fast shipping. Overall very satisfied with my experience


Very easy installation. Very pleased with the easy hook up. I even changed my gooseneck trailer over. Should have don it years ago. THANKS!!!!


Great construction/paint

be nicer if it had B&W decals on it like there other products.

Only problem I had was that driver side front bolts are nearly impossible to install.


Product is excellent. I was disappointed in how long it took to get 'in stock' items shipped. Granted , it was a large heavy item. Probably ran in to the supply chain/driver shortage issue. Still will purchase from etrailer in the future.


Fantastic, great customer service, super fast shipping. Perfect.

2009 GMC Sierra

Everything fit perfectly following instructions Quality I would recommend it to anyone that needs a fifth wheel set up!


I'm pleased it showed up as promised directions are clearly explained got it installed in about 5 1/2 hours after wrestling the spare down without the correct handle


Good quality product, takes a bit of finagling to get it squared up. Also check all you parts first. Had to make a trip to local TSC to get the missing nuts and bolts.


The fit was good! We just got shorted the 2-3/4 inch nuts in the hardware pack and had to take a trip to Blains farm and fleet

  • Fifth Wheel Install Kit For A 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD
    We do carry fifth wheel install/rail kits for your 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD. For that I recommend the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # BWRVK2500. This kit comes with all of the underbed install kit, as well as the above bed rails. I prefer this kit over others because it will be a no-drill install. Also the B&W products are made here in the USA. This kit includes industry standard fifth wheel rails, which will be compatible with virtually any fifth wheel hitch like the B&W...

    To install the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3200 in your 2003 Chevy Silverado 3500 the best option is the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # BWRVK2500 because it will not require drilling into your truck's frame rails to install, unlike the universal installation kits which do require you to drill into your truck's frame. The only drilling involved will be in the truck bed so you can mount the base rails; this means you are going to need to either remove your bed...

    If your 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500HD has a 6-1/2-foot bed you will need a sliding hitch to provide turning clearance for your toy hauler. I recommend the 18K B&W Patriot # BWRVK3270 which features 12-inches of slider travel, 1-inch thick dual jaws for excellent grip on your trailer's king pin and a double-pivoting head assembly that will make for easier hitching when the truck and trailer are not perfectly level. This hitch will fit into any brand of industry-standard above-bed base rails...

  • Recommended Base Rails For A 2005 Chevy Silverado 3500 Dually With A Husky 24k Hitch
    It sounds to me like you possibly had some non-ISR rails in your bed and that were only compatible with that 16k Husky hitch that the previous owner had. You're going to want to first confirm that your hitch will fit ISR (Industry Standard Rails) and then swap out your base rails to safely tow your trailer and end any doubt about safety. If your hitch is compatible with ISR rails then I recommend the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2500....

    If the hitch you have is a fifth wheel hitch, yes it will fit your truck. To install a B &W hitch, we have several install kits to get the job done such as # BWRVK2500.

  • Can a 5th Wheel Hitch and Gooseneck be Installed on a 2008 GMC Sierra at the Same Time
    For the most part you can't have both a gooseneck hitch and 5th wheel hitch installed at the same time. But if your gooseneck happens to be a B&W Turnover Ball then you could use the Companion hitch # BWRVK3500 for a long bed or # BWRVK3400 for the short bed. These hitches mount in the gooseneck ball hole of the B&W hitches and allow you to tow a 5th wheel trailer with the gooseneck hitch. If you do not have a B&W gooseneck hitch then I recommend the Andersen Ranch Hitch, # AM3100. It...

  • Is There An Adapter To Connect A PullRite SuperGlide To A B&W Turnoverball Hitch
    Typically when someone is wanting to use an rail style hitch when there's a gooseneck hitch already in place they can simply use an adapter like # 16310. Unfortunately in your case the PullRite SuperGlide isn't going to be compatible with an adapter since it has a flat base and doesn't arch up to clear the middle supports of the adapter. Because of this you would unfortunately have to either remove the turnoverball hitch or use a different 5th wheel hitch that was compatible with it....

  • Can The B&W 5th Wheels Rails Be Used With Curt Frame Brackets?
    We do indeed have the B&W universal rails and for this you will need the # BWRVR3210. However, these do not include any hardware and cannot be used with frame brackets that are not the B&W brand. This actually goes for all manufacturers as they do not want their parts mixed and matched for this kind of install. So with that said, I also very highly recommend grabbing the B&W Custom Mounting Brackets # BWRVR2506. These are specifically designed for your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 (both long...

    I'm assuming you have above bed rails in your 2001 Silverado 2500. I would go ahead and double check to make sure they are industry standard by matching them to the measurements below. Assuming they are, you can use the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3270 if you have a short bed or the # BWRVK3200 if you have a long bed.
