What size 5th wheel hitch should we get?

We just bought our 1st 5th wheel --and a new Ford 3500 Diesel. The 5th wh is a 36ft Holiday Rambler Presidential and is gross vechile weight is 17,000. We plan to upsize to a Grand Junction 5th wheel in a few years so want to make sure we install a hitch that will be able to handle the current 5th wheel as well as an upgrade. Oh year - we also have a golf cart that we put in the back of the truck when we're not towing the trailer so we'll need a hitch that's an under truck mount that can be removed from the bed when needed. Any advice on the type & weight of hitch we should get? Thanks.
