I have used a stainless grab bar on my last 2 units. They come in different lengths and look nice. Like a bathroom handicap bar.

I also had my entire unit out. I repainted it/ reinstalled it, bolted it back up instead of screws. I put a ratchet strap around the entire shebang just for an added safety measure.

If you are towing a 16k+ fifth wheel with any 2500 (3/4 ton) truck you are more than likely over the load capacity of the truck. IMHO you are clearly in 3500 1 ton dually territory.
