Hitches

Looking at fifth wheel hitches, especially the B and M hitch. Any suggestions? Will be towing a Pinnacle.

I have the B&W Companion and love it. It is easy to take in and out of the truck so you have a completely flat bed when the hitch isn't needed and it is easy to hook and unhook.
Works well for me.

I don't know a lot about hitches, but I do know this. If you only have a 6 foot bed in your towing vehicle, you need a sliding hitch and you need to implement it when making any tight turns. Voice of experience. Cab corners are expensive to repair.

We have a short bed (6.75') Ford F250 and a B&W Companion and I love this hitch. I have it setup as high as it would go and as far back as possible. With and extended pin box and a rounded front cap you should have no problem.

X2 Except with a Chevy 2500. I love this hitch! I have to take it out and reinstall it quite often and it take no time at all.
