Which 5th wheel hitch for a Blue Ridge 3600RS

We just purchased a 2015 Silverado 3500 Duramax Diesel dully long bed and want to know the best 5th wheel hitch to use to pull our Blue Ridge 3600 RS. Any suggestions?
We currently have a super glide pull rite we used on our shorted GMC truck. Suggestions from the RV dealer is a Reese 20K. A suggestion from the Chevy dealer is a B&W companion hitch because it is easier to take out of the truck.

Please respond. We plan to purchase one very soon.

I went with the B&W Companion as it had the Ford bed puck mount and was a lot cheaper than the Reese. Mine is also a 20K. My F-350 is a 4WD DRW and I really debated about some of the others as the high bed and wide rear fenders are a bit of a challenge for me with the hitching and unhitching (I am only 5'6") but I liked the puck mount. I bought a small collapsible step ladder and just stow it in the basement to counter my height.

I have the B&W Companion with the undermount goose neck. This is on my 08 GMC DRW. Easy to take in and out and leaves a flat bed when removed. This is my second hitch the first being a Reese 16k. The B&W is smooth, and tight with no wind up while stopping as the Reese did. You can't go wrong with the B&W.

B&W is a great choice. Curt is what I use, and works great. Both of these are quality "made in the USA" products. Reese is "made in China".

Generally you choose on features. They all tow. My brother has a scrawny no-name hitch, but it works.
