I love my B&W hitch but mine is before the puck system and kind of hard to remove.

I don't know if you plan on doing much boondocking but if you do you might want to think about adding a 50 gallon water tank at the front of the bed and a rear tool box built for a 5th wheel.

Thanks, everyone, for the posts. Very much appreciated.

For now just getting the hitch. Getting a B&W Puck Companion. Hard to find. No one had one locally or could even find one in their network. RV Dealer getting one from one of their stores in TX. Should be here in time for the Demo mid Apr when we pick up the Eagle.

Still looking at tool boxes and covers. Our running boards are long and have an extra tread at the front of the box, so a toolbox that opens from the sides would be easy to get to.

X3. The factory fluid is garbage and wears out very quickly as many of us have discovered.

Congrats on the new truck; you're going to love it!

I'm sorry I'm too late to recommend a Trailer Saver hitch to protect all that nice new gear plus offer a comfortable tow. I see Jayco doesn't offer any cushioned pin box options. The difference in cost for the best would have be neglible considering your investments. Enjoy that truck and trailer.
