5th wheel hitch

what hitch do you use for your Trilogy ? I'm looking at a reese 20k hitch and wanted see what the group thinks is the best setup.

I use the Curtis Q20 (no slider) standard bed, 2011 Silverado 2500 HD, no problems with clearance. This hitch has three grease fittings and provides side-to-side movement/flexibility. Towing a 2013 Trilogy 3650 RL.

I have a curt Q20 in my GMC 3500 HD. Pulling a 3650 RL. It works very well.. No problem with clearances also. As long as I keep the trail air pin box inflated properly.

I had the Curt Q20 on a previous truck and would have kept it, only Dodge didn't offer proper adapter rails for the 2013 trucks so I ended up buying the Andersen Ultimate 5th wheel hitch. It is good up to 24000#, only weighs 75# and has 3 height settings. For me it would be a tossup where the Andersen would probably win because 1 person can install or remove it within 2 minutes with no sweat.

I have a trilogy touring with the trailair rota flex pinbox. I have a trailer saver TS3 by Hensley Manufacturing hitch mounted in my truck. I like the damping action of the TS3.

B&W is pretty solid. We've been using their products for our company pickups down here in the oilfield for years. They get abused on a regular basis and hold up.
I opted for the Turnover Ball gooseneck set up with a Companion slider. It was a little pricey but I knew they made solid products so it was worth it for me.
