Looking for information regarding how much bed rail clearance you have and does the new truck make you nose high while towing?
Was just reading some of the posts, and decided to join. I have a 2011 Silverado 3500 duramax with a super glide hitch in it. I previously had a 2005, 2500 Silverado duramax with the super glide hitch. I contacted Pullright before I purchased my new truck because I knew GM changed the frame on the 2011's. They didn't have any info on the new frames at that time. They were really great to work with and I struck a deal with them that they would use my truck as a template to build the new brackets for the hitch mounts, because they couldn't find a local dealer that had a 2011 truck yet.
I drove the truck down to their facility (350 miles) and it took them the better part of a day to design and build the brackets. They also installed my hitch completely with no charge to me, for the use of my truck.
I have a 2004 Mountain Aire 5th wheel, the 2011, 3500 sits about 2 inches higher than my 2005 2500HD, I have about 4-5 inches of clearance between trailer and bed rails. I didn't have to change my pin box height at all, but I did have about 1-2 inches more clearance on the 2005 model truck. I've only used it twice and the nose is level. The truck has 18 inch wheels.
Hope this helps
