Is this hitch ok?

Hi, I am new to this forum and need some expert advice. I have a 16K Reese Slider already installed in my truck. We have narrowed our choice down to 2 new fifth wheels. The new 2014 Silverback 33RL UVW- 10,400 and the Cedar Creek 34RLSA UVW- 11,600. Probably add aprox. 2000 lbs. more loaded. Just wondering if you think I should upgrade my hitch or is it capable of handling this weight. Thanks , Craig

You should be fine just do not go over your hitch rating I'm only 600bs under mine and no problems at all....
