Which Hitch?

I have two Reese 5th hitches. One a 20k that can tilt fore, aft, left, and right. The other is a 22k that can only tilt fore and aft. Our Fuzion 360 Has a max total weight of 18k. I know that both can do the job. However, I have not been able to find information on the difference between the 20k or the 22k besides 2k and the tilt. The jaw parts look the same. Just would like opinions on which to keep.

I have the Reese 20k and like it. Our 5er grosses out at 16k so you can see I did a bit of overkill but I got a really good deal on the hitch. Looking at the way the 20k is built I would think it would give you a large safety margin pulling an 18k 5er.

I'd go with the 20K 4-way tilt. I have the Reese 20K and it is a good hitch.

I would think that a hitch with some side travel would be better especially if you consider how many campsites are not level. No side to side movement could make it a little more difficult to hook up.
