Is the B&W Companion OEM Slider Needed for a 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 Short Bed


I just purchased a 2020 GMC 2500 and need a 5th wheel hitch for it. My question is since the puck location has changed do i still need the slider BWRVK3775 or will the 3710 work?

The correct B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 Short Bed is going to vary by trailer, part # BWRVK3710 will work on some whereas others could require part # BWRVK3775. If you want to be certain then you can use the formula below to determine this after you obtain some measurements. That said, it's better to be safe than sorry which is why I recommend the slider. If you were to change trailers you would be covered and you can still use the slider hitch as a fixed hitch as well.

(A + B) - C = Clearance

A = Distance from center of fifth wheel hitch jaw to truck cab
B = Distance from center of king pin to edge of loft
C = Width of trailer divided by 2 (to get half)
