I completely agree B&W is the best non air ride hitch on the market. Unfortunately for Ford owners B&W only rates the hitch at 20K simply because the puck spacing in so close together. Reese has a hitch that is rated for 25K. There is NO way I would trust the REESE at that weight. I would tow with the B&W at more than 20K with out hesitation.

Same hitch head on my RVK3600 but the base has a larger footprint and is rated to 25K.

Good video!
