The standard hitch and tow package of the 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 can accommodate a wide array of trailers but you must have a Max Trailing Package for 5th-wheel/Gooseneck or heavy trailters. These packages equip your truck with all the tools to tow up to maximum limits of 12,000 lbs safely.

It’s important to know that fifth-wheel or gooseneck towing requires a specific kind of hitch that mounts in the bed of a pickup truck, and it’s typically used for towing larger, heavier trailers.

It is also important that your vehicle and your trailering combination do not exceed the tongue weight, Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), or Rear Gross Axle Weight Rating (RGAWR) limitations for your vehicle.

You can calculate the tongue weight by placing the tongue of the trailer on an appropriate scale.

For conventional trailering, the tongue weight should be 10% to 15% of the loaded trailer weight.

For fifth-wheel/gooseneck trailering, the tongue weight should be 15% to 25% of the loaded trailer weight.
