2017 2500HD factory hitch receiver

Opinions on these? I know they are a lot better than they were back in the days of the Classic body styles. Has anybody had any issues with these new ones?

Based on the tongue weight and GVWR of our new toy hauler I am going to play it safe and install a Curt Commercial class 5 receiver that has a rating of 2,700#'s tongue weight & 20,000#'s tow capacity and accepts a 2-1/2" stinger.

Piece of mind is worth a lot to me......
