fifth wheel hitches

In a previous post I talked about my problems with a Reese 20,000 pivot hitch. We have decided to replace it with something else. We only need a 16,000 lb. What are people using and are there issues. We have a 09 GMC Duramax with a 6.6 box and do not currently use the slider hitch. We do have the clearance. Recommendations anyone??

thanks in advance

I love my B&W Set up, the companion hitch is very easy to use. And in the winter time I have a nice flat truck bed. it is a little pricey because of the two parts but well worth it for me.

Using a Husky 16KW and I am very pleased with it. I started with a 16KS but due to some of the places I park our camper I needed a true 4 way rocker with a wrap jaw to keep the pin from binding.

We're using a Reese 16K Signature Series, pulling 11,000 lb Designer 5er. Absolutely no issues, not even chucking. Very pleased.
