Hitch for 2015 F350 long bed

We are buying our first 5th wheel (Cedar Creek Silverback 29IK) and need a hitch for our F350. We're looking at a B&W companion. What do other F350 owners use/or recommend? Thanks for your input!

Have F 250, Use Reese underbed puck system. Makes the the truck usable for other than towing.

I use the B&W Companion with the factory pucks on my F-350. I love it!
It is really easy to take out and put back in and since it can be split into two sections with the handles, each piece is light enough for one person to lift.

I have the brother to your 29IK, and it's a nice camper. You will enjoy it. As to your hitch, allow me to throw out a great option especially if you already have a B&W turnoverball. (Which is a great hitch by the way). Install a Reese Goosebox on the Silverback. It has the Fifth Airborne technology built in, and it is the nicest, softest towing setup I've ever used bar none. Other conventional setups have given me nothing but trouble and tons of chucking on the interstates. With the Goosebox, you have one solid connection which is buffered by that airbag/shock absorber fixture and the best price is at Amazon.
There are other good hitches out there. I have tried many of them. When I trade campers in the future, it will have another Goosebox. Good luck with whatever you choose to do......and have fun!

B&W would be best choice, Curt would be a close second

Either the Hensley Trailsaver BD3 or TS3. I have the TS3 and love it. Wouldn't go back to static hitch again ever.

I have a 2008 F350 and the Curt Q20. A little over kill for my Columbus RS320 but well worth the money. Duel locking jaws an a 360 degree rotating head.
