Removable Goose/5th Wheel...Help Please!

I have a K3500 6.5 that came the 'rails' for a removable 5th wheel/Goose Neck hitch. Only the rails are in the bed of the truck. My question is, are these rails 'standard'? Or is there a way I can tell what brand they are so that I can purchase a removable unit? I can see nothing on them that states what brand they are. Help!

As far as I know, they are standard. However, not all hitches (at least 5th wheel type) use the in bed rails.

You may want to see if a dealer who has the type of hitch you want will fit the rails. If it is close there is a little adjustment that can be made by loosing the bolts and set the platform you want in place and re-tightening to spec the rail bolts.

My Husky hitch I have now fit my existing Reese rails in my truck, I would think most would fit into the existing rails. Your best bet might be to measure the holes in the rails and go measure some hitches.
