Newbie 5th wheel hitch choices

I have a 2015 33 grad design RV and will be towing with a 2011 GMC CC with 6.6 bed. I am being told I need a slider. I am trying to decide between a super glide slider auto slide ( recommended by RV dealer) or reese R16 non- auto slide ( recommended by local rv servicer) . Another option is the truck is used and it has a B&W hide a ball. Should I consider using the B&W companion slide? I will never use the gooseneck. One guy recommended I remove the B&W. This is all new to me and confusing. both hitches are 16k, the RV is 9K dry. Thanks.

Stick with B&W. Use your eves and compare side to side.

They are all going to try to sell you what they have and make the most money on!

Look at tweets.com they are a great place to buy B&W.
