We have just purchased a Grand Design 260RD 5th wheel. The GVWR is 10,000 lbs. We are looking for recommendations for a hitch

Our truck is a RAM 2500 Hemi, Our Dodge dealer is installing a puck system in the truck bed tomorrow.

Any recommendations as to hitch brand and size are appreciated. We will be picking up the trailer this weekend

If your truck is a short bed, I'd go with the Pullrite Superglide.

Agree with above. If short bed a slider is a good option for peace of mind. Many pull with short beds and no slider and never a problem. Some have knocked out their rear window on tight back-in turns.

If long bed, or if you don't want a slider, then any of the big names are very good hitches, Pullrite Super 5th, Reese Elite, B&W, Curt.

Should only post in one forum, and you've posted in the 5th Wheel forum. It keeps congestion down that way.
