Depends on your bed length, whether or not you need a slider, how much weight you are towing, whether or not you have the factory setup installed, etc...

Here's some info that may help:

I have an 8" bed and it has the pre cut holes for a 5th wheel. I don't have a camper or toy hauler yet so I'd rather get one that's not going to limit what size trailer I do purchase.

What truck do you have 2500 or 3500, SRW or DRW, in the end you need to have an idea what you are going to tow. or just go out and buy the biggest fifth hitch your truck can handle.

If you get a hitch rated at 20K you should be good for almost anything your truck can tow safely.

A little bit more info on you truck would help as CDN Ram noted above.
