Suggestions for new hitch

I am looking at getting a new hitch. Any suggestions as to pro and cons between a single jaw hitch and double? I am replacing an existing slider hitch and so have standard bed rails already installed on truck.
Doug.

If your budget will allow I'd pull rails install B&W Turnoverball, new Companion and line X the bed covering up the holes. You will have a hitch that will outlast your truck, that's made in the USA with USA steel.

I have the B&W companion and although I like the hitch, I'd be tempted to go with the Hensley Trailer Saver Air Ride Hitch. If you go this way, you can't use the Tri-Glide hitch pin box.

I'm just not satisfied with the actions of the Tri-Glide yet.

I went w/ the Comfort Ride Hitch
20140718_181710.jpg from a recommendation. I understand that the inventor of the Hensley Trailer Saver Air Ride Hitch created the "Precision Custom Hitch" which Hensley contested due to a "non compete clause" so he sold the business to Comfort Ride and retired.

On my F350 I have the Roll and Lock cover and the hitch fits beneath just fine. Nice to have a cover over the hitch when not towing. Not sure how the depth of the bed compares w/ your Dodge.

How much did that cost and do you still have any chucking with it?
