Finding correct Hitch Receiver for 2011 Chevy Express 4500

Working on finding the right hitch for my 2011 Chevy Express 4500 with Thomas body. Will any hitch that fits the same van body (example: 2011 Chevy Express 3500) also fit my Express 4500 bus?

Here's a Class 5 hitch that I found:

Hitch... will it bolt on?

IF, thomas did not modify the frame rails, yes probably,

IF thomas cut the frame rails You might have to drill some holes, but will likely fit.

IF thomas added on to the frame, maybe, maybe not, depends how good they are.

Measure the frame width, the hitches will be for specific widths.
