The 16-3/4 inch hitch height is the lowest the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3700 will go in your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 with the factory prep package.

The Companion is a great hitch but there are other high-quality fifth wheel options if you need one with a lower height setting; for that I strongly recommend the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30890 which has hitch height settings that are adjustable from between 14 inches and 20 inches.

The M5 # RP30890 will also fit directly in your Sierra's factory puck system and uses a single-piece jaw that latches onto your king pin, ensuring complete contact and minimizing the amount of rattling. I have added a photo of this jaw piece for you to check out.

The Reese M5 fifth wheel also offers a simplified way for you to hook up your trailer with its fully articulating head. The Tow/No Tow indicator, which I have added a photo of, is another handy feature of the M5 that will show a green indicator when you are locked out and ready to tow and a red indicator if you are not ready to tow.

I have added a link to a video review of this hitch for you to check out as well as a photo a customer sent in showing this hitch installed in their truck.
