5th Wheel Hitch

I have been thinking about moving to a heaver rated 5th Wheel Hitch.

We currently have a 16k Husky Hitch in our 3500 GMC DRW pulling our Jayco Pinnacle.
Our Pinnacle weights about 15,400 lbs. loaded with a pin weight of about 3,500 lbs.

The Husky hitch is now 8 years old, been used a lot and still works good but been thinking about moving up to a heaver rated hitch.
Do not want to have a hitch failure on the road as many miles as we tow these days (about 12,000 to 15,000 miles a year)

We may go to a heaver 5er in the future so if I upgrade I want to be covered.

Our 2012 GMC 35000 DRW is 5th Wheel rated at 23,500 lbs.

What Brand / Model 5th Wheel hitches are the best in the 23K to 24K range.

Rob, look at the AirSafe 25K hitch with the Holland head. Hensley TrailerSaver is also very good.

If you don't want an air ride type hitch, get a B&W.
