Read this below, says a 2015 will tow up to 17,900 pounds and you can load 3,760 in the truck. What's the weight of your 5th wheel?. http://www.edmunds.com/chevrolet/silverado-2500hd/2015/?tab-id=reviews-tab#/leaderboard-reviews-3-anchor

A 14000 POUND FIFTH WHEEL IS HEAVY AT THAT...IF YOURS WEIGHTS MORE LOADED THAN THAT..ID SAY NO....

I wouldn't try and pull the full 17,900 pounds. You're really pushing it. So, what is the actual weight, if you know. Kelly's right, pulling too close to the limit or over is dangerous. You might need a Freightliner? 42 feet is about as large as they get, correct? And, where do you pull this thing to? The fuel pulling this must be horrendous. Is you truck a diesel?

My brother has the GMC version of the 2500 Chevy and he pulls his 15,000 5th wheel without any issues. If he packs his beer in there is is well over 18,000 pounds. You can put on stiffer shocks and springs if you have any issues, but the camper sales people should be able to give you a good answer.
