Thats as bad as asking which truck to tow with, it is all a matter of opinion. Personally I have been very satisified with the 20K Reese. mine has been in use for in excess of 150000 miles.

The B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch is a very good hitch with a head that works very much like a Holland/Binkley head.

This is the hitch we have because we want a totally clean bed when we load our slide-in truck camper onto the truck.

If you have the B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch, then you're all set to use the B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch. That's what we've used on our current truck and are quite satisfied with it. With it removed, the bed is clear.
