Thank all of you very much for taking the time to help educate me on these hitches. It appears that B & W is preferred by several of you but I have not been able to locate them making a hitch to handle 19,000 lbs. If you are aware of one please let me know where to find it.
Many thanks again,
Wayne

I have had a couple of B&W hitches and I really think your weight rating is just to heavy for this hitch. I would go with a 25K rated hitch since that is the rating the truck you will have to buy should have. I am now using a Trailer Saver Air hitch and is by far the best hitch I have used. I had the Ford 25K (Elite) in my 2011 DRW F350 and worked OK. If you go that route consider a Ride glide or air pin box hitch for your trailer.

We use a Husky Airsafe 5th wheel hitch. They are available in a variety of weight ratings. Great ride a much easier on the truck and trailer than a solid hitch.

If you get a shortbed truck- we have the 30RSO and 2500 Chevy Duramax crewcab short bed- I would definitely recommend the PullRite SuperGlide automatic slider hitch!!! Its performance has been awesome. have had dit over 2 years now and logged a lot of miles using it. Just got back from Alaska. It has been great. And the customer service at PullRite has been wonderful. We have to call them with questions when we traded trucks and moved the hitch and etc. They were wonderful!
And this way we can have the shortbed truck- much easier parking for me!
