Reese Goose Box or Anderson Ultimate hitch?

We’re in the process of purchasing a new 5th wheel and wanted to know which is preferred or best. I know everyone has different opinions and experiences, so I hope there is someone here that has used one or both of these systems. The Goose box looks like the way to go, but the Anderson looks promising as well. The trailer we’re hoping to get has the Morryde pin box on it and the truck has a B&W flip ball. Thanks

I had my Goose Box transferred from our previous fifth wheel to our new Pinnacle. My ride is better than any we've had with our prior fifth wheels. Hook up is pretty easy with the cab camera and centering line on the screen. I can do it by myself. What is really nice is the quick in and out of the ball. No hitch to deal with, just a 5 pound or so ball. It does need to be aired up after hitching but I have an on board compressor that makes it easy.

I've never had an Andersen type hitch so can't comment on them. I have had several standard hitches, including a B&W Companion and a Trailer Saver BD3 air ride hitch, and they worked well. My issue was their weight. I could no longer remove them by myself so generally they were left in my truck from April to November. I like having my truck bed available by just removing a ball which is the advantage of the Goose Box.

I talked with a NP owner who had the Anderson 20k on his F350. He loves it.

We are looking for a F350 2016 or 2017 to replace our current truck. I'm liking the Anderson.

Thanks, the Reese is a little more expensive, but it sounds like it’s worth it!
