i just up graded to a pullrite superlite 2400 it only weighs 54 pounds
it is like the Andersen ultimate, but inverted with the ball hooking onto the
king pin. we have only pulled with it once so far just to pull the 5ver home from storage
but planning to go out next weekend, waiting to see how it does on the Highway
it will be nice to be able to just lift it out when not in use.
compared to the pullrite super glide we use to have, that need a hoist to get it out

The tank is 90 gallons and not ideal for a 5er but I've never had to jack knife enough to come close to it, yet.
I have to ask are you saying the hitch in the pic is rated at 25k? If so that is NOT correct the hitch in the pic is a 20K Companion.

Op you have a beast of a truck, I can't recommend strongly enough for you to add the pucks if you don't have them and then install a B&W RVK3600 you will thank me and others for years to come if you do so.

Thanks cummins... I didn't realize you can add the pucks later? Since I already had the rails in the truck I went with the B&W patriot. ... it seems to be a fantastic hitch, but thus far I have only pulled the camper home 25 miles from the dealer, but it did so very well.

ANY B&W product is TOP quality! If you decide to get a larger RV just sell what you have and add the pucks and the RVK3600.

When we purchased our fifth the other day the Husky was recommended to replace the one we now have, which is out of production. So another to check what reviews say.

I would highly advise looking at the B&W hitch for your application.

You are correct, it is 20K. I need new glasses.
