    Best Hitch for 5th wheel

    My wife and I just purchased a new 357RE and I now need to get the hitch installed rather than just going with the brands the dealer has available I wanted to reach out and see what options might be available. We have a 2014 Ram 2500 4x4 crew cab with the 8ft long bed.

    I have a B&W Companion. I like the B&W because you don't have the rails in your bed.

    I also have the B&W companion gooseneck ball mounted. I really like it and purchased because a friend who has the same thing raved highly of it. I have mine mounted in a F350 dually longbed.

    I love my Trailer Saver BD1 by Hensley. Company is 1st rate. Product does everything they say. Well built problem free. And most of all improves the ride of the 5th wheel better than expected.

    The only hitch I've ever had is a Pull Rite (not a slider) so I can't really provide any comparison. This hitch is built with extremely close tolerances so there is no banging or chucking. Their customer service is outstanding as well.
    Have to say, though. Folks really seem to like their B&W's.
