Gap Between Frame and Bracket on Curt Gooseneck Hitch for 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed


We have installed this as per the enclosed instructions and the online videos.. torqued down to 40 ft lb as per instructions - there is a gap between the bottom ubolt and the bracket and the frame - looks almost like there should be a spacer ??? none were included. Just want to confirm that this gap should be there and is safe for towing? It is the same on both sides. The ball is centered where it should be and everything else is correct placement.

I spoke with my contact at Curt about installation of gooseneck trailer hitch # C60712 on your 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500 new body style short bed. The gap that you are seeing is supposed to be there. It is a result of some of the other hardware used toward the rear of the bracket and your installation is correct!
