Welcome. We actually just picked up our new 2015 Pinnacle 36fbts a couple weeks ago. I had a 16k Husky hitch installed and seems to do just fine. Can't imagine we will ever get to the max payload of 15590 lbs. That would give you 3,900 lbs of gear which is way more than I would ever bring along. So I would say you are safe on the 16k hitch.
