Hitch recommendation

If you want the smoothest tow and not worried about the cost, get the Hensley air ride. But, they are expensive and the adapter isn't cheap either. I've used the Pull-Rite Superglide, Curt Q20, and now the TS3. There's no comparison to how the 5th wheel tows but if you don't tow a lot I'm not sure it's worth the costs. I bought mine used at a really good price, $900 plus I had to buy the adapter. I really liked the Curt Q20 also and everyone seems to like their B&W, never used one but I've never heard of anyone that doesn't like them.

The TS3 is very heavy and not a hitch you take out of your truck any time you want. The BD3 is lighter and comes apart but has less weight capacity. I think I'd have to try the B&W if I went back to a non air ride hitch, too many great reviews.

I purchased the 25K B&W hitch for the Dodge factory prep and it pulls my Trilogy well. The Mor Ryde pin makes a big difference as well.

I am really happy with the ride, TrailAire TriGlide. Up down/fore and aft control.

I have a trailer saver TS3 air ride 5th wheel hitch I will sell cheap. It came with a truck I bought and I already have one. In excellent shape. They tow very nice.

The TS3 won't work with the Hitch prep on Ford's or Ram's. You would have to have the rails in the bed. The BD3 is the one that does but it is only rated for 18K. I know as I got one about a month ago.

You can buy the adapter from Hensley and it'll work. I have one in my 2015 F450 and use the TS3.

Here is the Reese Ford puck adapter to mount a standard rail hitch to Ford prep pucks.

Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Mounting Adapter for the Ford 4 Puck System - Free Shipping.

However, if you need a hitch, buy one of the several that mount directly to the pucks. I used the adapter because I had a standard hitch from my previous truck.

Have you done any research on the Anderson ultimate aluminum hitch? It's good for 25,000 lbs,it's all aluminum weighs,32 lbs,no grease, installs in 10 minutes or less,and no "chucking or bucking" the best part it's only $650.00. I own one and like it very much,do yourself a favor and go to YouTube and watch a video on it,you'll like the concept,good luck.

Compare the Andersen to this and ask your self, do you really believe all the hype? Lots of negatives to the Andersen.

I've spent months researching an Andersen hitch and have yet to come across a negative review from actual users. The only negative I've seen are from people who have never used it.

Only used it a few times so far myself, but I don't have any complaints as of yet.
