Hitch recommendations

I have new 2016 Ford F 250 Super Duty with an 8' box that is factory prepped for the OEM puck hitch. I know that I can buy one from Ford, but I can buy the B&W RVK3300 for a bit less. It is rated at GTW 20,000 lbs. and VTW 5000 lbs. I know it has an excellent reputation, but I would like other recommendations as well. I will be towing a Redwood 31sl. Thanks in advance.

Does anyone have any experience or comments on the Reese 18K Elite? It looks like another excellent option for the 31SL

Yes, I have used mine for four years with my RL and love it. I have removed/reinstalled it a number of times each year to haul things. Can't beat the convenience of a removable hitch. I also made my bed-mounted tool box removable.

And strong... I even hit a bridge approach in VA where I swear the rebound pulled the back wheels of my dually right off the ground! Had to pull over for that one...

There are even couple of 25K versions for sale on here. Then go get the frame kit on Amazon for your truck. Installing was a challenge... But not for pro installers.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm a newbie still looking and learning...and there's a lot to learn. The 31SL is high on my list of 5ers and the Reese 18K Elite looks like a good match for the 31SL and my TV: 2016 Silverado 3500 CC SRW LWB Duramax. The single jaw looks like a really secure fit too.
