I need a hitch !

Ok ladies and gents I need a hitch, since I have had motorhomes ,I am a rookie on 5th wheel hitches I need a little help.
Just purchased a 2014 Dynamax Trilogy 3650RL with a GVWR of 17,500 and I will be towing it with a 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 DRW 4X4 8 ft bed with the Cummins diesel ..... a little help from the experienced would be a Great help in my decision ,

I have the Curt 20K hitch. Mine's a slider which you won't need, but it's been a great hitch. No worries and simple enough to use.

Congrats on the new digs!

B&W users are cult-like and avidly wild about their hitches.

:-D

I like the B&W also but the BW3000 companion only has a 18,000lb cap and the BW3300 has a 20,000 lb cap, but a funky attachment system and I am unsure about it working on my Dodge, or am I missing something?

With a GVWR of 17,500 - you'll be fine with the companion 3000 at 18,000 pounds. The other one is only if you have the factory prep package for your truck and even then, is it only Fords or do Dodges use the same setup? The B&W people are VERY responsive to calls and emails. I'd suggest you call them to get the 411.

i'm running one of these and couldn't be happier on the interstate and highways across 3 state lines! I have the pin catcher as well and have never had a problem but cheap ins.

ependydad the 3000 might be ok but it is very close to the max of the hitch ,I would like to have a little more headroom to work with .am I wrong with this thinking? Or am I just worrying about it too much ?
