B&W Patriot Fifth Wheel Hitch & Reese SideWinder Pin Box

Has anyone used the B&W Patriot fifth wheel hitch? This will be our first fiver (coming in within the month), and I'm considering the Patriot for my truck. Just looking for some input.

Another note, the fiver will have the SideWinder hitch on it as well, and I have verified that the Patriot will work with it according to B&W. However, Reese says "The Patriot has “polyurethane bushings” in the head to reduce metal to metal contact. These may wear prematurely if used with the Sidewinder."

So, any input on the Patriot, specifically with the SideWinder?

Thanks for any and all help!
