Thanks Aquaman, I have seen those on several FW around the storage area. You poor thing, you had to give up your 5er for that terrible old Georgetown! I looked at some photos, very very nice. Congrats! We don't have to have bunks as the baby will be 36 this year. LOL! Just me and Momma!

Lucky you! I have 3 out of the house, but have a 9yr old that's going to be around for a while. Although truth be told, I probably end up in the bunks more than she does! I guess when you come in at the wee hours of the morning, beggars can't be choosers on where they are going to sleep! Momma and the "baby" tend to snuggle up and watch movies late at night while I "keep guard" of the cooler.

We went with the Reese GooseBox and are very happy with it.

Our second choice was the Andersen.

Love our TrailAir (now Lippert) air ride pin box with shock, teamed up with a Pullrite hitch.

I also liked the B&W turnoverball, and I wanted to have a clean bed. I've had the rails before and I despised them along with that heavy heavy heavy hitch. That heavy hitch has to be handled, and maintained and stored. Some folks leave it attached to the pinbox, but you still have to drive those 4 pins in and out every time, and I just got tire of handling the thing, plus after we set up camp, that thing still takes up half the bed. The Anderson hitch is fairly lightweight, but it still has a footprint in the bed taking up valuable real estate.
To me the best of all worlds is the Reese Goosebox. They make a 16,000 lb and a 20,000 lb version. It has the Fifth Airborne technology with the dual airbags and dual shocks. Absolutely the best and softest towing I've ever experienced, and I never have to pick up or handle anything except for the 2 5/16" ball, and I just turn it over.
Like all airbag hitches, you must put air in it from time to time.
I put 50 psi air pressure in mine before I leave, and I've never had less than 32 psi on returning home.
There are several good hitches out there. Good luck with whichever one you choose, and let us all know after you decide. We're all interested in your new rig. Pictures are great.

Now, if I was to do it all over again and knew I would stay with a fifth wheel, I would have gotten an Air Safe hitch and possibly a tri-glide pinbox. I had rails in the bed of my Sierra 3500 and had cut the plastic bedliner around them, it made for a near flat bed. I never had any problems hauling anything, and I hauled everything.
Have same and they work great....will never tow without it ....over 3,000 miles with it so far and it cuts vibration from road and feel more confortable riding in truck
