The installation is simple but a little more time consuming than expected. I am a fairly good mechanic and with the assistance of a friend who is an excellent, 30-year that's his job, mechanic we feel the two of us could do the installation in an hour and a half next time. Took us 3 hours to do the installation. I do recommend two people and to not do as seen on one of the videos and cut the heat shield, just take your time and take the two heat shields down for the room. I've installed Universal fifth wheel rails in the past and they compare nothing to the quality and cheer girth and strength and fitment of the B&W custom fit rail system.



by:

This kit is heavy duty as it should be to handle the weight of a fifth wheel trailer. All of the parts were in the kit including clear instructions on installing the rails. It is helpful to watch the installation video on the Etrailer website also. Overall a great product!



by:

Well thought out kit,, haven't installed it yet but it looks straight forward,, would much prefer rails to be black but it be what it be,,, need better boxing on rails, they were falling out the box when delivered

Ive used it once but it worked great,,,I worked in a RV dealership in my earlier life and installed a few 5th wheel hitches and now days with the factory pre drilled frame it is a piece of cake



by:

Shiny and new! The gray color matches the gray of my new truck. Very solid looking, good welds and finish. I chose these over several others due to the fact each bracket has four individual securing points, two in the frame and two through the bed to the cross bars. Impressed with these so far, installation looks to be straight forward, photos to come.

The B&W Custom base rail kit that I order was an excellent purchase. Product arrived when I was told it would, and everything fit like a glove. I found the video that showed the installation process extremely helpful, and everything worked just as it was shown.

The only reason I did not give 5 stars, is that I was shorted one bolt. Trying to find a grade 8 1/2'x 2" carriage bolt in small town America these days are almost impossible, especially when you have everything torn out under the vehicle. I will count before hand next time. Other than that, a great product.

2017 Chevrolet Silverado

Sold our 2017 2500 Silverado that had B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches installed. Purchased a 2022 3500 Silverado HD and needed the base rails. Ordered and they work great with the 5th wheel we purchased earlier. Husband a 42 year truck driver very satisfied.



by:

It's a little harder to mount than I expected. Doing it by myself and takes a little more time. Now that its done I like the look of the mounting this is only the second time I have mounted a 5th wheel hitch



by:

After purchasing this B&W 5th wheel kit I installed it myself. The kit came with great instructions and easy to understand. The kit has all the little tricks to assist with installation. I would buy and use this again if and when needed.

It’s perfect and easy to install!!



by:

The original brackets we ordered didn’t fit a 2000 2500, but these were very easy to install and fit perfectly. Kudos to etrailer for their customer service support in resolving the issue. Very smooth process to return and shipping was quick.



by: 06/03/2022

Easy install the only difficult part was tighting the bolts above the fuel tank.



by:

Great instructions and products. I have purchased other items in the past. Always great quality and speedy shipping.



by:

Great follow up on order..Very easy ord ering...



by:

I would not recommend DIYing this for most people. There's too much in the way to correctly torque the nuts (like the fuel tank). It is a great kit and the instructions were complete, there's just a lot in the way that needs to be moved or removed.



by:

Terrific service and assistance. Parts fit flawlessly. Thanks again



by:

My hitch and rail kit were installed today by my dealership. The technician didn't report any issues with the instructions or the installation. I'm very pleased with the results and can't wait for my first camping trip.

The kit was necessary when I switched trucks, from a Silverado 2500HD to a 3500HD. I have not had any issues with the hitch.



by:

I had the BEST experience ever with etrailer! Bought a fifth wheel and hitch. Needed rails and mounting brackets for the truck bed. Shopped online,found what I thought would fit and called them for confirmation. Talked with Donna and she helped me to the finish line! The rails and hardware arrived in about 3 days! THREE DAYS! from Missouri to California! Couldn't believe it. Definitely a repeat customer. If you need any help clarifying the compatibility of the item you're looking for, they are a quick phone call away. Not a long hold time on the phone and Donna was as friendly as she was thorough. Thank you Donna!

Excellent process, I was just expecting everything to arrive at once. Not really a big deal, one day apart delivery. We’ll see how the installation goes. It looks all the parts are here.

Perfect fit. Easily installed. Good instructions. Highly recommend.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

When we realized the rails may not be here until Thursday, called customer service and a very nice young man made sure the rails went out on Friday. They are all installed and we we will be able to leave on our camping trip Friday as planned.
I wrote his name down and I can not find it. He even gave me his ext. in the event I needed something. Excellent customer service.



by:
2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

This kit was much more than I expected. Super rugged brackets with all necessary hardware. Installing it was better than expected with absolutely no cutting. Two man install took two hours.well worth the money. I highly recommend this kit.



by:

No problems. Tows well. Would purchase again. Seems alot of people like them since I see them installed in many trucks. Towing 40ft 5th wheel.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Rail Kit For A 2024 Chevy 2500 Long Bed
    As far as a fifth wheel rail kit for your 2024 Chevy Silverado 2500 Long Bed, I recommend the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # BWRVK2505. I really like the B&W kits because they are a no-drill install, they are made in the USA, and the price is typically pretty competitive compared to other brands. This will work with any fifth wheel hitch made for the industry standard rails, including your Patriot hitch. It is possible to get the hardware kit by itself with part # BWRVR2505....

  • The Frame Rail Holes Are Oval Instead Of Round On 2024 Silverado 2500HD
    Hey Frank, I checked out those photos you sent in; thanks for that info! I really don't see any issue here. Sometimes on older trucks we get issues with major rust in some areas, but the slightly misshaped hole shouldn't pose any issue. We have had some instances where the customer needed to run a drill bit through the hole a couple times to complete the circle or make it more round, so you may need to do that. But the good news is that the bolt won't be threading into the hole, but simple...

  • What Color Are Base Rails of B&W BWRVK2505 Fifth Wheel Installation Bracket/Rail Kit
    The B&W # BWRVK2505 base rails are a medium gray, the same color as their fifth wheel and Turnover Ball gooseneck hitches. If you click the provided video link, you can get a better idea of the color which doesn't show up too prominently in the product description photos.

  • Hitch Recommendation For A 2021 GMC Sierra 2500HD Short Bed W/ A Heartland Milestone 386BH
    Since your 2021 GMC Sierra 2500HD is a short bed using a sliding hitch will help add more turning radius and help prevent the nose of your Heartland Milestone 386BH from coming in contact with the cab. You can go without but I always highly recommend a slider in a short bed truck out of precaution for the cab and camper nose. When you tow longer trailers like yours turns can be very troublesome in most campsites so the slider will definitely help. The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch...

  • Recommended Tongue Weight Capacity for a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    Most manufacturer's say 10% under your truck's capacity but our recommendation is to go between 20%-25% below.

I have linked a really helpful article below that will cover all the different capacities and how to calculate the weight of not only your 5th wheel trailer but also the weight of what you are carrying in your truck.

  • Will the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Work On a 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 With or Without Pucks
    The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3270 will only work on a 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 without the factory prep package using the B&W Custom Installation Kit part # BWRVK2505. The reason it won't work on models with the factory prep package is because of the slider mechanism on the fifth wheel hitch.

  • What Can Be Used When Swapping A Fifth Wheel Hitch Over To A New Truck
    If you have the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3270 which mounts on base rails then you can definitely reuse the hitch in your new Silverado, but the fitment for the base rails will differ between the Ram and Chevy so you will have to get a new base rail kit. If you trading in for a 2020-2023 Chevy Silverado 2500 then you'll need the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # BWRVK2505. For a 2011-2019 you'll need the # BWRVK2506 instead.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2023 GMC Sierra 2500 With OEM Pucks
    If you have the OEM prep package then you don't need the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2505 you're looking at. Instead, you'd just want to use the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3775 which is virtually the same as the Patriot but will drop directly into your pucks eliminating the need for base rails.

  • How To Mount a PullRite SuperGlide 16K On a 2020 Chevy Silevrado 2500 Without Pucks
    I do have an option for you if you have the PullRite SuperGlide #2700 which uses industry standard rails but if you have the PullRite SuperGlide #4100 you will need to get the rails from PullRite. For the PullRite SuperGlide #2700, you can use the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # BWRVK2505 which is a custom fit for the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 so you don't have to drill into the frame.

    The B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # BWRVK2505 will work great with the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs part # AL57541 which are a fit for a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. Please note, they did change the design of the u-bolts for the air bag kit so they can work better with certain fifth wheel hitches. They use a two bolt design now, not a a single u-bolt so it may work with your existing if you have not yet tried this.

  • Recommended Hitch For A 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 W/ OEM Puck Package
    I still highly recommend using a slider since your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 only has a 6-3/4' bed. Using a non-sliding hitch could result in your camper making contact with the cab of your truck when making turns. Since you want a B&W hitch and have the OEM puck system I recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20K # BWRVK3775. It will drop right into your pucks for easy setup. If you do not have the OEM prep package then I...

    The B&W # BWRVK2505 Custom Bracket/Rail Kit is a fit for a GM full sized truck, but we do offer a B&W kit that will fit your truck. For your 2022 Ram 2500, you'll need # BWRVK2602. The kit provides industry standard bed rails that will be compatible with your PullRite 2700 as long as it's an ISR series hitch. For a 7-way trailer connector that would install in your truck bed, use # C56000.

I recommend the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3270 due to it's well-known durability and excellent quality, and it's made in USA.

  • How To Mount Husky 15K 5th Wheel Hitch on 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500
    I do have an option for you but you can't mix fifth wheel rails and brackets (holes don't line up) so you'll have to purchase both the rails and brackets in a kit. The good news however is that the Husky 15K EZ Roller uses standard rails so you can use it with the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit part # C16429-204 which is what I recommend for a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500.

  • 5th Wheel Base Rails & Custom Brackets For 2024 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
    Hi there Brad; good questions and let's start with the 5th wheel base rails, as you will need new ones to go with a custom, no-drill install kit for your 2024 Chevy Silverado 2500. The reason is you can't mix and match base rails and brackets, and I believe by "Pro" you are referring to old Pro Series rails, which there aren't brackets for. So for new rails and brackets the best option is the following: - B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # BWRVK2505 I like the B&W # BWRVK2505...
