Fifth Wheel Rail Install Kit Recommendation for a 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500 Short Bed


what rail and brackets do I use for ps30121 hitch on a 2016 chevy 3500 6.5 box


Helpful Expert Reply:

For your 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500 short bed I would recommend a custom install fifth wheel rail kit like the part # RP56001-53 as this will be the easiest to install and will minimize drilling on your truck. You would end up spending over twice the time installing a universal kit compared to this one so I would recommend it highly. The frame brackets mount on the outside of the frame which allows the kit to install easier too.

I attached an install video as well.

These rails will work perfectly with the Pro Series Slider hitch part # PS30121. For a similarly rated slider hitch that would perform much better I would recommend the Reese part # RP30083. This hitch uses a single hook to secure the king pin which wraps around it tightly. Another advantage is a round tube slider which will operate much smoother than a square tube.
