For the best possible towing experience I highly recommend the B&W Companion because of its prodigious jaws, cushioned bushings, and pivoting head, all of which combine to give you the smoothest, most comfortable way to tow with your 2019 GMC Sierra 3500. The exact one for you will depend on if you have a short or long bed and the weight capacity you want.

- B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Sliding Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package (20,000 lbs) # BWRVK3775
- B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Sliding Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3710 (20,000 lbs) or # BWRVK3715 (25,000 lbs)

The jaws on the Companion are 1 inch thick, and there is no space between them when they are closed. This robust jaw system is the key reason why the Companion - more than any other fifth wheel hitch - minimizes the chucking, jarring and noise that can occur when towing a fifth wheel trailer. If you take a look at the accompanying photo you can see the full breadth of these jaws and why they act like an adhesive to your king pin. The bushings on the Companion are another important factor; they are made of polyurethane which act as cushions that absorb noise and rattle so you can get to your destination in comfort.

The B&W Companion is widely regarded as the highest-quality fifth wheel hitch in the industry; as evidence of this you can see that this hitch has been reviewed some 700 times by our customers (as of this writing), and they have given it a nearly unanimous 5-star rating. Getting that many people to agree on anything nowadays is impressive, which speaks volumes about how good the Companion really is. I have added links to video reviews for you to check out as well.
