Just a note, this is our first 5th wheel, we are full timing and we plan on traveling 8 to 10 thousand miles per year (I know we're jumping in with both feet).
For your case since you have not purchased a hitch yet I would consider an AIR RID Style hitch. Such as the Trailer Saver Hitch this incorporates the air bag support into the hitch and you can use the standard pin box on your trailer. See the attached link:Air Ride Suspension Hitches - Trailer Saver for more information.
