Gooseneck/5thWheel Brands underbed - Curt vs B&W?


Recommended Posts

What's you guys' thoughts on brands, Curt vs B&W?  They both seem to have same class weight (7500TW, 30K Total).   the B&W looks to be built a little heavier, but I've never laid physical eyes on a Curt setup, so I can't really speak to them.  
From what I'm seeing, the Curt is about 75-100$ cheaper, on average.

 

 

Thoughts?

Installed a Drawtite in the 2012 the a few months ago. Having hands on it, it was very heavy (more than 150lbs) and seemed to be well built. UPS damaged the box and a package of hardware was missing. Drawtite sent an another one for free and expedited. Still have the other one sitting in the corner. Already has about 1500 miles of 20-30k on it.

 

That said, most guys seem to prefer B&W.

I'm not "brand-religious" (except for Dodge), so I don't care what name is on it, just wanna make sure whatever I get is dependable; be it Draw-Tite, B&W, Curt, Capt. Crunch, idc.  :)

I ended up finding a used B&W in great shape, for $150, and ordered a new hardware kit and frame u-bolts from B&W for $40.

 

Thanks for your input, guys!
