New Tow Vehicle & FW clearances

I'm taking delivery on a 16 Silverado 3500 DRW today in preparation for the Shasta FW on order. I know this may be a no brainier , but I'd rather ask now than tomorrow. Do I need to be concerned about bed height or any other clearance issues before I make the purchase? It's long bed 17" wheels. Appreciate the help as always!

No hitch yet. I was thinking b&W turnover and FW companion, but was going to call Lippert to be sure no issues. I may just let the RV dealer install a Reese.

I called Lippert and sounds like they are ok with the B& W setup.

I don't know the sure answer, my TT is on order. But I know that the B&W I had installed in my 3500 has settings for up/down etc. I'm hoping those adjustments will e enough, if needed.

The B&W is a really nice hitch. Positive locking and easy to use. There are several adjustment settings available to match truck and trailer combos. Enjoy!

Bikeman, I have a '15 3500 SRW, B&W turnover and companion 3500. No problems, and dealer didn't have to adjust 5ver or hitch.

Thanks! I bring her home tomorrow. Left at the dealer to put the spray liner in.
