Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ram 3500 Long Bed with Factory Prep Package
Looking for the right 5th wheel htich for my 2018 ram 3500 that has the factory pucks in the bed. I see there are a good number of options now that go right to those pucks but trying to decide which is best. Want something strong. Don't want to buy another one in a couple years if you know what I mean. Thanks for your help.

The best and most durable 5th wheel hitch for your 2018 Ram 3500 with the factory rail kit is the B&W Companion OEM # BWRVK3600 because of its heavy-duty powder coated steel construction and 1 inch thick dual jaws that will provide a superior attachment to the trailer.
Every component of this hitch is engineered to create not only one of the strongest hitches on the market but also to allow for an extremely smooth ride when you're towing. This includes the aforementioned dual jaws along with the fully articulating head to ease hookup and limit chucking, the polyurethane bushings that reduce noise, the cam-action latching handle that's easy to release even when on unlevel ground, and a wide-stance base that adds to its overall strength and stability.
The Companion's 25,000 pound towing weight capacity is also the highest rated hitch we have available that will attach directly to the factory pucks in your Ram and it is made right here in the USA.
I have attached a short video demonstration that you can also check out.
