Might as well start an "oil thread" since you will be getting opinions of what users have and generally they will like whatever decision they made. That said I have a B&W Companion with the Ram puck mount 25K. Very solid, made in USA, easy to use but heavy. Get enough truck and that's a non issue. Several years ago I had a Reese 16K slider mounted on rails and hated out. Clunky, noisy, not as easy to use. Did I mention I hated it? I got rid of the sider base and that helped but still didn't like it.
If you don't have the puck mounting system in your truck, B&W has the "Turn over ball" under-bed mount, which uses a single "pin" hitch mount. Also very easy to use but B&W are heavy because they are solid and well built.
EDIT you are also going to get a lot of questions about what truck you have and that will start a huge discussion of whether you have "enough" truck for the job. Just be prepared for that.
