5th wheel hitch 2015 chevy

I ordered a new 2015 chevy 2500 yesterday(lucky me). I'm already looking for rails to order so I can install my reese slider in the new truck as soon as I receive the new truck(it will be camping season here in CO by then) The problem is that I don't see anything for a 2015 yet. Do I need to have my camper dealer install one or has anyone found the info that I can't?
thanks for your feedback,
Mike

I'd imagine the frame is the same as at least 2010 and above. I have a 2013 2500 and am willing to bet whatever fits mine will fit yours.

Last year I was in the same boat as you. I bought the truck in March 2013. When I bought the fifth wheel camper in May, the RV place ended up putting on a hitch that fit a 2012. I don't see why that wouldn't apply now unless GM overhauled the whole design.

Also, I was given a waver I had to sign IF I was going to install the 5th wheel hitch myself for liability reasons. Screw that, I let them do it. I figure they install these things for a living so at least it will be done right, if not, I can go after them if something goes wrong.

Previous truck was 2006 Chevy 2500 and fame had to be drilled. Don't know when the frame was changed but my 2013 has a box frame and uses existing holes. I had the bed drilled by the guy who sprayed my bed liner in and installed new rails myself and reused the hitch. It was very difficult to install the nuts, shims and tighten the bed bolts because of limited space. Hands were scratched up pretty good. Call etrailer. Although I don't see the mounting brackets listed separating they may have them. Congratulations on the new truck

I looked at the '15 2500 today, what type of 5'er you going to be pulling? I'm thinking of getting a new 2500 so I have it when I upgrade my current TT in a few years

From what I have read, the frames, engines, and suspension are the same, at least for the Duramax from 2011 onward. The changed the interior and exterior plastic.

Correct on the above info

Give Cequent a call they cover all the popular hitch brands and have excellent customer service and techs.
1-800-632-3290 when they answer and ask for your account number just tell them your a consumer looking to speak with a technician about 5th wheels. Knowledgable people there to help.

Did you go with a gasser or coal burner?

Try calling B&W to see if they have a Turnover Ball setup for your truck. They're usually incredibly helpful.

Without consulting my frame measuring system, I'm almost positive that the frame is the same as the '11 tru '14. The front bumper brackets are probably a hair different though.
So any '11 thru present hitch will work on the '15s.

Fyi, no manufacturer will warrant any frame that has been welded on or had holes drilled in it. So a b&w type setup that only uses factory holes is the only type that should be recommended. I'm sure that there are others our there that use factory holes besides b&w.
