Airstream 5th Wheel hitch questions...

I saw the post for the AS 5er last week in the classifieds and well...I'm buying it!!
I need to get a hitch put on my truck and I'm wondering if anybody knows what kind to get...are they universal or is one better than another??
I realize not many 5th wheelers here but maybe someone has had an SOB and has a suggestion. Wish me luck on this new adventure!

If no one chimes in here, you may want to find a more-or-less local RV dealer, and ask what they would recomend. I would ask one of my 5'er neighbors, but they have all gone North for the Summer...

Thanks, the goal is to fulltime, after fixing it up, never thought we'd find one of these!! Hope we're not getting in over our heads!
It needs tires right now...where do I ask who might know of an RV place in Rhode Island so I can get them to go to it and put some tires on...not too forum savvy....yet!
Thanks.

I see B&W recommended frequently, and vendor Ron (of Hensley) is naturally proud of their fifth wheel "TrailerSavr" hitch. That's where I'd start my comparisons and information gathering.
