DocGTO, I also have the B&W turnover ball installed in my F-350 Long bed dually. I have the B&W companion, that I am constantly taking in and out of the truck. It's heavy and I'm not as young as I used to be, lol. I either need extra help or a forklift, plus somewhere to put the companion when not in use. I'm looking for a higher rated pin box, mine is 18,000 lb rated, and my fiver is 21,000lb gross, so the new 20000lb Reese goose box seems to be the ticket. My question to you concerns height of the fiver overhang to truck bed clearance. How much clearance do you have? Or did you need something like an extender or the Anderson gooseneck frame? Pictures of your setup would be nice!
Thanks!

My B&W companion is heavy and I hate to ask someone for help, DW is out of the question. I have level-up on my camper and I leave the hitch hooked up to camper and I lift up hitch with front jacks. I leave hitch hanging on pin, if the pin is able to pull 15000lbs down the road it can hold up 300lbs

Another vote for the Reese Goose Box. I did a good bit of research and went with it on the new 5'r. When I unhitch all I have is the goose ball. The system has 2 shocks and an airbag. I don't have a ton of miles on it yet but so far I am very impressed. And no it does not void the Lippert Frame warranty.
