A B&W I've found will never let you down - either as and add on to their Turnover system or as an OEM supplied puck style. A short bed truck MAY need a slider as well. Other brands are probably as good. If you choose an Anderson, make sure you do your homework first as not all[] users are really as happy as they say they are. It isn't a bad hitch though as long as you fully understand how it works.

White Water, the real questions you should be asking yourself are do you want a rail system or a in-bed ball system and what you might use the truck for. If you have other uses for your truck bed having a flat bed floor is so much nicer than having the rails. Either setup gives you options. After having had 3 previous long beds and hitches, I recently purchased a F350 short bed and an Andersen hitch with the in-bed ball. I am now over 70 and I could no longer install and remove my hitches without help. After doing a lot of research I decided on the Andersen as I can install and remove it by myself very easily as it only weighs about 35-40 lbs. It is also easier to load and unload the 5th wheel in my opinion and I love the short bed manuverability versus the long beds I had. The setup is really nice, easier to use, and it rides extremely well. Make sure you think of all the uses for your rig before you buy anything!!

I ordered stright from Anderson company for the same price as Amazon. I have a fuel cell 20 inches wide sale rep said I need 3220 tbs with 10 inch base . I had 15 inch to the center of the ball to the tank. I'm looking forward taking out the heavy 20 k Reese And heavy puck adapter. I was also told the hitch will give me 91/2 inches more clearance from the truck cab.

B&W turnover goose ball or Reese drop-in goose ball for puck system, and the Reese Gooseneck hitch. While I am very happy with my Andersen Ultimate, the Reese Gooseneck adds air cushioning for a much higher price.
