Helpful Expert Reply:

If your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 diesel short bed has 5 holes in the bed then it has the factory-installed puck system that accepts a fixed 5th wheel hitch like the 24K Curt # C16545-16025. For a slider hitch setup you can use adapter # C16023 to allow use of a slider like # C16536. For a gooseneck kit for this package we have part # C60692 from Curt.

If it has dealer-installed industry-standard above-bed 5th wheel rails then you can use a sliding 5th wheel hitch such as Curt # C16546. These base rails will allow you to remove the 5th wheel hitch and insert a gooseneck adapter like # 49080 which provides 4-inches of offset for better cab-to-trailer turning clearance.

If you need a 5th wheel/gooseneck wiring harness you can use # C56000 which plugs right in at your existing 7-way.
