Recommended Auto Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed


I'd like an Auto Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch for a 2019 Chevy 3/4 ton truck, What would you recommend? What else would I need?


Expert Reply:

The hitch you need will depend on whether your truck is equipped with the factory tow/prep package with the pucks sunk into the truck bed and the weight capacity you're looking for.

For a truck equipped with the tow prep package, for a 18K rated hitch go with The Demco Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550034 and the # DM6194 install adapter. For a 21K capacity, use the # DM8550035 hitch along with the same # DM6194 adapter.

If your truck doesn't have the pucks in the truck bed, use the # DM8550022 hitch for an 18K capacity or # DM8550037 for the 21K capacity. Either hitch would use the # DM8551010 under bed rail installation kit. You can see the installation by using the provided link. To install a 7-way trailer connector in the truck bed, use part # DM8555002. I've also linked to the instructions for the wiring harness.
