Yes, we do have a few different 5th wheel hitch options for your 2019 Ram 1500 with the 6-1/2' bed.

Out of the options I highly recommend the B&W Companion Slider # BWRVK3400 because it easily installs in the Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1319-5W, which doubles as a gooseneck hitch and gives you a completely clean bed when you aren't towing. This 5th wheel hitch features dual 1" jaws that do an extremely good job of keeping the king pin stable to reduce chucking (back and forth movement). The 12" of fore/aft travel allows you to make tight turns without your cab making contact with your trailer.

Some other positives about this hitch are how easy the head unit is to remove and how easy the lever for the jaws is to engage/disengage. Removing the head by simply pulling the pins really helps to reduce the overall weight when you are installing/removing the hitch and the lever has a cam-action which makes connecting and disconnecting on uneven ground much easier. The wide funnel of the head is also a plus for when you are coupling.

If you don't already have a 7-Way in the bed of your pickup I also recommend installing the Bargman # 50-97-410 to make connecting and disconnecting your trailer wiring less of a hassle.
