Congratulations on your "new" truck Little John. I have the B&W Companion Slider for my 6 1/2 foot bed. Works great. Easy to remove the single point system with a hoist for a clean bed. Couldn't be happier with this Made in USA brand. With an 8 foot bed you won't need the slider, but the principle is the same. The under bed frame and Turnoverball system leaves a clean bed when removed. I didn't go for the goose neck attachment on my fiver. I read somewhere that the side torque may not be suitable for all trailers.

I have a Reese Titan 16K. It has double lock jaws and a lifetime warranty. Have had this Reese since 2012 without any problems. I looked at all the others and they were more expensive, had bars instead of jaws, no lifetime warranties and just did not have the ability to do want I wanted it to do. Your choice. Get what you want. Good luck. I am sure you will be satisfied with whatever you get. All of them are pretty good but compare apples with apples. Lock jaws vs bars, warranties, ability, cost and reputation of company.

Curt Q24 I bought it on sale cheaper than the Q20, go figure. It's been a good hitch, I have a 2012 Ram short box and didn't go with slider no problems so far. With your long box shouldn't have any problems. Just stay away from slide bar hitch.

I use an Andersen Aluminum Ultimate Connection. Can't go wrong with a hitch that weighs 32#. Also great customer service.

I am going with a Hensley BD3 Trailersaver hitch, it's a little more money but I can trade in my present Hensley on it and that brings it down to a much more reasonable price. I have towed travel trailers with the Hensley for nearly twenty years and it proved to do all they claimed, so I have high hopes for the fifth wheel version.

The Hensley is a beautiful hitch.
It's one of those. " you get what you pay for " purchases.

I have an 18K Pullrite for the 5th my wife really wanted. The Sterling 32RL is Cat scaled at 11,000 pounds. No issues. The Pullrite support staff is fantastic and will spend whatever time you need to get sorted out, even though it was my mistake.

Just curious. What does the BD3 cost and what is the weight. Just watched the U Tube on the install and all the parts involved. Must only be available from Hensley since e trailer and other vendors do not list it. Thanks

5th wheel hitch and brands?

About 300 lbs with the slider.
I paid about $5k Canadian.

Well worth it to just watch the pin, floating up and down over bumps.
