Helpful Expert Reply:

For your 2019 Ram 2500 with 6.5' bed and 12,500 dry weight trailer I recommend the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider - Dual Jaw - 18,000lbs # BWRVK3270 and B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2602.

Typically once loaded the trailer is usually 2,000 to 3,000lbs heavier and manufacturers recommend only using 80-85% of your max towing capacity so this hitch will have you right at that percentage range. The sliding feature on this hitch will provide you with 12" of travel to push the pivot point of your trailer back and allow you more turning clearance. B&W is a well known for quality and comfortability with their 3/4" thick dual jaws provide 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact and fully articulating head eases hookup and helps to limit chucking.
