5th wheel hitches

Iíve read alot on 5th Wheel hitches and while I see the jury is out between using Andersen or traditional or goosebox people each love them. Question for those who have had a few - any of them tow better?

Just picked up my first 5er - Avalanche 378BH and trying to figure out my hitch situation.

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.
