Default WDH for coil sprung 1500?

So, against my better judgement, I picked up a used bumper pull trailer the other day. I have a '13 Ram 1500 ordered, which will hopefully be built someday and be the tow vehicle for it.

Started looking at WDH's yesterday and there are too many to choose from! Prices from around $300 up to $600.

Wondering what kind of WDH's you guys are using on your coil sprung 1500's and how you like/don't like them?

The TT is a 24' box/26' overall, GVWR of 5600 lbs. Mfg specs put the tongue at 500 dry. So I'm guessing around 600 loaded. Sometimes I'll have enough cargo in the bed of the truck to bump up the tongue weight to maybe 800 lbs.

I'll get some actual weights before buying a hitch, but for now say a TW between 600 - 800lbs. What are you using to tow similar with your coil sprung 1500? Mine will be a CC/6'4"/4x4/Hemi/8 speed.
