Curt or B&W 5th wheel hitch??

Right now I have a 20K Curt hitch and I like some of the features, but there are times I just can't hook/unhook this thing to save my life. Yes, some of it can be me, but even when I get everything line up just right it can still be a real bear. Now I am planning to get a new 5th wheel and will need to get a 25K hitch so I am looking at the B&W hitch and reading the reviews which are good, but alot of Curt reviews were good also.
Anyways, I am interested in hearing comments about these hitches good or bad.

Thanks

I have a BW turn over ball in my pickups and have used GooseBox when towing 5th wheels

25k means your talking a large trailer and you must have a F450 or larger?

I have had 25K on my F550 but not on anything lighter

To answer part of your question, never any issues with the BW hitches I have owned.

I had a B&W Companion and loved it! Even with back problems I could get it in and out of the truck and had no problems connecting or disconnecting. If you are in VA and need a ford quick mount I have one...
