Best Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed Towing High Country Trailer


Good morning. I am looking for the best sliding hitch for my new truck. I have a 2020 Chevy Silverado, 2500. Short Bed. Factory pucks. I see a lot of chatter about the Companion but just want to make sure this is what you think. Will be towing High Country GVWR comfortably under 20K. Thanks.

The best sliding 5th wheel hitch for your 2020 Chevy Silverado short bed with the factory rail system is indeed the B&W Companion # BWRVK3775, which is designed to drop right into those factory pucks.

The Companion line of hitches is definitely seen by many (which you seemed to have already noticed) to be one of the best models on the market, and this has a lot to do with its robust overall construction. This includes its 1" thick dual jaws that will wrap completely around the king pin for an extremely secure connection with the trailer but also a really smooth, quiet ride during travel.

Its unique cam-action latching handle also helps to prevent any binding so it's easy to release, even on unlevel ground (if you've ever had experience with a different model hitch you know how frustrating the opposite of this can be). It has 3 different height settings to help match the height of the trailer and the 12" slider travel will provide you with the needed cab clearance during tight turns.

The Companion features a 20,000 pound towing capacity, more than enough for your trailer, and is made right here in the USA. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.
