Pullrite SuperGlide 4100 or 4400?

I have an Eagle on order and the GVW is 12,950. Pulling with a 2015 Silverado 2500HD Crew, 6.5' box.

Either the 4100 16K or the 4400 20K will do the job.
What is your opinion on which hitch to purchase?
I'm assuming the height of these two are the same.

Thanks for the feedback.

Get the bigger one. Your next fifth wheel will be bigger. They always are......

When we picked up our trailer the dealer was going to install a 16k, but ended up going with a 20k based on the recommendation of the distributor.

I went with the smaller one. My second fifth wheel will have a GVWR less than the first, so I am still good. Not a fan of the 45' monsters that seem the be the norm these days.

After talking with Pullrite, they are recommending that I go with the ISR Superglide #2900 which requires Industy Standard Rails. The reason being is that it's expected that in 3-5 years when I upgrade my TV the custom rails won't be available. Sales of custom rails continue to decline and eventually won't be made available because of cost. The issue I have is the #2900 height is 6" taller and would put it about 56" from the ground. The Jayco dealer is telling me the MORryde pin box on the Eagle 323LKTS is about 48 1/2" from the ground. This is 7 1/2" difference except for squat, I'm thinking this is too much. Then on the other hand if you go with a hitch too low you risk hitting your bed rails of your box with the pin box. I'm not sure what can be done but then I can't be the first in this position. I'm not liking the nose high. With the bedroom A/C I'll be over the 13' 6" Interstate standards.

I welcome your thoughts and opinions.
