I have the factory gooseneck hitch. I do not know what the 5th wheel hitch is like. In my opinion the gooseneck hitch is junk. The safety chain "brackets" are huge (don't drop down into the bed like B&W, need to be removed). The ball is suppose to be removed by flipping the lever, mine is stuck. Need to have someone lift up while I crawl underneath it. The 4 plastic pucks for where the chains go are cheap. If I had to do it all over again, I would forgo the factory hitch and get B&W.
