Preferences for 5th wheel hitches

Hey, so along with looking for a truck, I am looking for a 5th wheel if the truck does not come with one. What is everyone's preferred brand and whatnot? What hitch do you use?

Looking for opinions on which to get. Let's pretend money doesn't matter in this situation, so offer me whatever you feel is best!

Do you want to haul mostly live stock or horse type trailers? If so, you'll likely find most are goose neck trailers, which is a ball hitch.

Where as a fithwheel is a kingpin hitch. Typically used in heavy trucking.

While there are adapters available, if your goal is a goose neck, an actuall goose neck hitch is much handier. Typically leaving the bed free to use openly. Where as a fith wheel will either be above the frame and permenetly in the way or have to be removed and stored to use the bed.
