5th wheel hitch install up at near ETI

Have towed trailers for more years than I can remember but never a 5th wheel. So, just ordered a 5.0TA and will need a hitch installed. The sales staff at ETI says there is a shop just down the road from them that they figure has installed about 75% of the hitches for their customers. So, if any of you have used them what did you think of the install, under bed work, and their service? Do they work with closely with ETI on setup parameters? What hitch did you end up with from them? Appreciate any comments you have.

If you type Trademaster into the bottom field ( Google Site Search ) you will find dozens of threads from satisfied customers. There is some discussion of cost, but, once the exchange rate is calculated, that issue is resolved.
Have a read yourself.

We just had a hitch installed at Trademasters on Thursday. We got the rails and hitch from our seller. Trademasters supplied and installed the portion under the truck and connected the rails to the truck bed. They also ran a 7 pin outlet to the wall of the truck box. It was around 1000 CAD, or 750 US. It took about 4 hours. We made the appointment about a week ago. They said if they are busy, would book about 2 weeks out.
