There is no best hitch just like there is no best truck or a trailer or a wife..... other than the one you have.

What is the trailers GVWR ??
That weight can make a difference in recommendations.

Would there be any benefit of coupling a Hensley TS3 hitch with a Trailair pin box from Lippert? Or is it, one or the other?

I would go with one or the other. I have never used the TrailerSaver and I am sure it delivers a good ride but I have had great luck with the B&W hitch and the Trailer with TriGlide at far less money. Also I can have a clean bed in a couple minutes.

I have a 6.5" bed f150 with a Cougar xlite. I originally purchased a Reese 15K slider(garbage!!). I now have a Husky 15k slider and it's much higher quality. I didn't see the need in spending $2000+ on a hitch for an 8000lbs camper, but to each their own.

I picked up a used Pullrite Superglide for my old short bed last year for $400. Just make sure the rails are not galled. I degreased it and it cleaned up like new. I sold it for what I had in it when I sold the truck a few months back.

I have a GMC with 6.6ft bed on a double cab. It has the in bed Curt turn over ball hitch (any turn over works fine). I changed the ball to a Curt 4" offset ball and I use the Andersen Ultimate Aluminum (32#) Fifth wheel hitch. Works perfect, no slider needed. My 5er is the 11k weight Wildcat Extralight.

I've very happy with my Pull-Right Superglide with my shortbox. It definitely gives me peace of mind with the automatic sliding function.
