Goosenecks vs Fifth Wheels

Like a fifth wheel hitch, a gooseneck hitch is mounted in the bed of the truck, but while a fifth wheel hitch sits above the bed, a gooseneck hitch uses a ball mounted level with the bed. Also, fifth wheel trailers are typically used for recreational applications (such as camping), while gooseneck trailers are primarily for agricultural or industrial use.

I have a 2013 crew cab Silverado with the short bed I bought a used draw tite underbed gooseneck hitch and since no one will install a used hitch can you please send me the measurements I need to install it myself

What is the model of your Silverado and what gooseneck hitch did you buy (model number)? These are specific fits so we would want to make sure it fits first.
