Which to choose? B&W or Pullrite

Hey all,
I am new to the fifth wheel community. I am ready to purchase my 1st fifth wheel. Carriage Cameo 35SB3. I am trying to decide between B&W Companion or Pullrite Superlite 20K.
Any opinions, reviews or thoughts would be welcome, along with any experience with each.

You might want to consider one of the trailer saver hitches.

Hi Ron, I pulled with a B&W Companion hitch for 7 years before switching to my motorhome. I really liked the hitch and it never gave me one problem.

If I had to do it again, Iíd probably have purchased a BD3 air ride hitch from Hensley to give the fiver a nice cushioned ride. They are expensive, but not so much more than buying a B&W and an air pin box if that is also part of your thought process.

We have had the PullRite for 8 years now. It's totally automatic. It's performed well for us. And their customer service is great.

That's like tying to decide between a Ford and a Chevy tow vehicle. You can't go wrong with either choice, provided you get the specs and options right for your intend use.

Because you already have the B&W TurnOverBall gooseneck hitch installed in your tow vehicle, the B&W Companion would be the obvious choice. But the PullRite SuperLite can also be installed with your B&W TurnOverBall hitch, so no real reason to choose one over the other.
Grumpy ole man with over 60 years towing experience. Now my heaviest trailer is a 7,000-pound enclosed cargo trailer, RV is a 5,600 pound Skyline Nomad Joey 196-S, and my tow vehicle is a 2019 F-150 Lariat 3.5L EcoBoost SuperCab with Max Tow (1,904 pounds payload capacity).

Thanks to everyone's feedback. I chose the pullrite with the B&W gooseneck. It is lighter, and like a gooseneck it will force me to lower my landing gear before I can pull away. No bent bed!
