The absolute best 5th wheel hitch to use on your 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LTZ while pulling a Keystone Montana High Country 380TH is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # DM8550034. The Hijacker is unique in that it has an auto sliding feature that will move the pivot point away from the cab during sharp turns to avoid interference. It also has a wraparound locking jaw which will provide excellent security of the king pin. In order to use the Hijacker with the puck system you will need an adapter, the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter part # DM6194.

The other option you have is a manually sliding 5th wheel hitch that will require you to enter and exit the truck each time you need to make a sharp turn. The advantages of this option however are that it will typically be much lighter to remove and usually encompass a one-piece design. For this, I recommend the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16669. The A20 has a two piece interlocking jaw system which is going to do a really good job of reducing chucking and jarring. It also has a one-piece head removal system which makes removing the hitch very easy on the back/body.

I have attached review videos for each option as well.
