It would help a lot if you tell us how you're going to use it. What do you plan to tow etc.?

Reese adapter? There's lots of those.

First: what truck?
Second: what trailer?
Third: what is your plan; what do you have/what do you want?

Both are 4 way pivot head fifth wheels. They are both well built, quality units. The difference is the jaw type that closes around the king pin and head to leg contacts

Curt: Dual jaw design is a huge step up from the slide bar design found in cheaper hitches. It is a well proven design used by MANY RV haulers. This hitch uses a "cushioned" with a spherical axial bearing. The cushioned connection makes this hitch not compatible with sidewinder or revolution king pins. Pin weight limit is 4000lbs.

Reese: Single jaw self locking wrap around design provides a tighter connection and is considered the most secure. This hitch uses a more traditional 4 way hitch head connection that is compatible with all king pins. Pin weight limit 5000lbs.
