5th wheel towing

Is anyone towing a 5th wheel with a 2012 dodge 3500 dually?

Cheatham,
I am towing my 39' Sanibel 3500 5th wheel hitch with a 2013 Ram Truck dually. So far have towed it over 6000 miles from Va to Flagstaff Arizona without any major issues. By the way, I bought my 5th from Campers Inn in Mocksville and Ram Truck in Kernersville. My unit has the Cummins diesel and Asin Tranny.

I'm sure you will find plenty here doing that. Is there anything specific you want to know?

We went with an Anderson Ultimate fifth wheel hitch in our standard bed. It weighs 70 lb and can be put in and pulled out with ease. Just FYI if you're looking at options. The Anderson handles our 14k fifth wheel with ease and you do not even know the trailer is back there.

IMHO,
Grateful

Trouble?
Due to the weight?
Getting it locked down?

I went with the B&W Turnoverball and Companion hitch but paid someone to install it. He did not complain of any issues putting it in and the Companion comes out in 2 manageable pieces.
