Smile Gooseneck hitch

What type gooseneck hitch are ya'll using??? I'm looking at the B&W flip over goosneck hitch part number 1108. The only thing I do not like about it is the clamp strap, it connects to the bottom of the side bracket and wraps around the frame to the top of the side bracket. And the way it looks there is one bolt on each side securing it to the frame. I have found the hitch at website, and it is only $269.99. I don't want to spend over $300.00 for a hitch, so this unit is looking real good right now.
Thanks for your opinion.

I'm using a B&W in my '04 and it's been flawless. There is no better goosneck on the market for the $$ in my opinion.

B&W is the best out there in my opinion. We have four trucks with four different types. Mine had the B&W and they all wish the rest were.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the reply, B&W it is then. I had better go ahead and order the unit before it goes off sale.

B&W turnover ball is the best. I've hauled loads over 23k and had no issues, and I check everything on the hitch before I tow.
