We are about to buy a newer truck. It will be a 2017 F350. We'll be pulling a Solitude which weighs about 12,650 lbs. empty. What hitch would you recommend for that setup?

BW makes one of the best hitches for 5th wheels. I did a lot of research and decided on BW and luckily my dealer only sold them with their trailers.

Depends on bed size. Short bed Pullrite auto slider, Long bed we have a Curt, no problems so far.

If the truck has the puck system, get the B&W 3300 for oem Ford pucks. If no pucks, install the under bed puck system, and above hitch.

If its a Short bed, A slider may not be needed, but they are nice to have... If that is the case, Pullrite Superglde makes a real nice one.

If Long Bed, I hear a ton about B & W, which is what I just ordered to go into my new long bed as soon as it hits the ground..

B&W makes an excellent hitch. If needed, I would buy another one in a heartbeat.

Been running my B&W for 5 years now and it's been flawless. Had a Pullrite slider in my shortbed Ram before that and it did well but I like the B&W better.

I've had my B&W Companion (and Turnover Ball) since 2004. Built and works perfectly for me. I just need to remember to fully latch it in the future...

The new (for us) truck will be a 2017 Ford F350 6.7 SD, CC, LB, 4X4, 4.10 King Ranch. I would assume it has the puck system.
