My options seem to be much less than I originally thought.

I need a minimum 20k hitch, made in the USA, no slider, that is not sloppy and will work with my already installed rails.

Suggestions?

Why not install pucks and install a B&W. Eliminate the slop completely.

Yup, best idea, if you really need 20K minimun rating. B&W makes an 18K rail mount, that is solid, and could be trusted to the max.

I am proof positive that a 18k B&W doesn’t blow up at 18,001#. I towed 19k several years with my old 18k Companion.

Trailer Saver TS3, 25k. Might as well have a comfortable ride in the process.

I also would like to know what rails OP has. On my '15 F350 SRW, used Reese rails/brackets. On my '17 F350 DRW, used B&W rails/brackets. Man oh man could not believe how much more beefier the B&W's were compared to Reese. Having also bought a B&W 18k Patriot when we had the '15, never again will I go back to Reese.

Curious. Over half the posts are recommending B&W products when they don't even manufacture a hitch that meets the OP's criteria. Let's see...your rig weighs 20 thousand pounds, use an 18 thousand pound hitch, that's pretty close. Or....I exceeded the capacity of my 18k Patriot, so you should be fine. Am I seeing bad advice here?
