BW 16k hitch

Postby Diesel Dave 04 » Fri Apr 10, 2015 6:07 pm

any one using the BW16K hitch that fits the rails? Im 15,700 I know I only have like 2,500 pin weight but 15,700 is close on the total weight. I don't see where they make a higher weight hitch to fit the rails.
if so what are your thoughts? I use a Curt 20K now but it seems to have chucking.

I use a Reese 20K rail hitch. The new version is rated 22K. Any chucking I had was minimized of not eliminated with a 5th Airborne airbag kingpin. I would not tow a fifthwheel without an airbag kingpin. Worth the price and much better ride. You might keep the Curt 20 and look at the kingpin option for about $600 at Tweety's.

Dave, why you do not go with the B&W Companion that uses a goose neck box mounted to the frame.
I have been using that unit for years and I think it is rated at 20,000 lbs or higher, it is a very tight no slack locking jaws / joint unit.
