Best Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2020 Silverado 2500 Long Bed w/ Factory Prep Package


I just bought a brand new truck and I need the best fifth wheel hitch available. The one I had before was a cheap Reese piece of junk and I want the best now. What do you recommend?

For the 2020 model year, GM actually changed the layout of the pucks in the truck bed so the Curt model you referenced will not work. Fortunately, the best manufacturer of 5th wheel hitches, B&W offers a 20 or a 25K capacity Companion 5th wheel hitch that's compatible with the new puck layout used in your truck.

For the 20K capacity, use part # BWRVK3715 or part # BWRVK3710 for the 25K,

The B&W 5th wheel hitch for the GM puck kit is rock solid with a strong and easy to use positive connection to the in bed mounting pucks. Once the hitch is in place and properly adjusted there will be no movement. The Companion uses 1 inch thick dual jaws that provide 360° contact with the king pin. This makes for a solid connection that along with the polyurethane bushings greatly reduce bouncing and chucking to provide a comfortable ride.

we just purchased a 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 3/4 ton 6ft bed. & we are looking for the 5th wheel bracket that will fit in the puck system for that truck. We only need the bracket not the hitch. 64154

There is a bracket that Demco makes # DM6333 that is available for the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 OEM puck system. It will insert in the pucks and lock into place. This will allow you to use your current hitch with your new truck. I've provided a link so that you read more about it to see if it will be a good fit for you. 54464
