Curt part # C16220 is their X5 5th wheel rail adapter which fits into their EZr Double Lock gooseneck hitch. The X5 adapter provides the equivalent of above-bed 5th wheel rails (like # C16411-204) that can accept any industry-standard 5th wheel hitch.

If your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 is a short-bed you will need a sliding hitch like the Curt Q20 # C16536. This hitch offers 12-inches of slider travel for better turning clearance between the trailer overhang and the truck cab and it also includes a cushioned 360-degree-pivoting head to make it easier to hitch the trailer when you're on uneven ground.

If the truck is a long bed then you can use a fixed (non-sliding) hitch like the Curt Q20 # C16130 which shares the capacity and features of the slider model. Both of these hitches offer a lot of features for the money.

For an in-bed wiring harness you can use Curt # C56000 which plugs right in at the factory 7-way.
