Adapter Rails For 2021 GMC Sierra 3500 With Pucks For Fixed B&W Patriot BWRVK3200

Question:

I currently have the Patriot 16k fifth wheel hitch. We have upgraded our truck to a 2021 GMC 3500 with the OEM package. I am having trouble finding the adapter rails, as they seem to be backordered from the manufacturer everywhere I look. Would we be able to replace the base of out hitch with the Companion replacement base? Or would our only option we to buy a whole new hitch if we choose not to wait for the rails to come back to stock?

The Companion base is not compatible with the head of the 16k B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3200. There are a pair of adapter rails available, and either will work for your 2021 GMC Sierra 3500 with the factory puck system with the fixed (non-sliding) Patriot # BWRVK3200:

- Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Chevy/GMC OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package # DM6333

- Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch # C88KR

Outside of using one of these two adapters, you would in fact need a new hitch.
