B and W Fifth Wheel BWRVK3500-5W Review

Today we're going to review part number BWRVK3500-5W. This is the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch. This is a jaw design with a twenty thousand pound weight capacity. Now this fifth wheel hitch is design to mount in your truck bed so you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. It's a very quick simple installation. If you notice right down here in the very middle there is a socket post.


B and W Fifth Wheel BWRVK3600 Review

Today we're going to review Part number BWRVK3600. This is the B&W Companion Dual Jaw 5th Wheel Hitch for the factory Ram towing prep package and has a 25,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this is a custom fit application. It is designed to fit on the newer Ram trucks with the factory installed towing prep package starting in 2013. This 5th wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow a 5th wheel trailer. It's a very quick and simple installation. Basically, these tabs, one on each corner, will drop into the 4 receiver pucks that are built into your factory under bed rails.


Husky Fifth Wheel HT31313-32220-59 Review

Today were going to review part number HT31313-32220-59. This is the Husky Silver Series 16KS Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with a slide bar jaw mounted on the 16K roller, has a weight capacity of 16,000 pounds. Now for this video demonstration, I do have it mounted onto the rails for display purposes just to show you how this is being installed with the rails but the installation kit is sold separately. Now this fifth wheel hitch with a roller will mount in your truck bed so you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. The roller will move to allow for required clearance for your short bed truck to turn safely at slow speed. It will prevent the trailer from hitting the cab of your truck during those sharp slow speed turns and it also offers safe operation with the visible latching pins on the inside here. Now this hitch uses a slide bar jaw which will secure the kingpin in the hitch, has open sides which will allow the kingpin to swing without hitting the sides of the head. Then Im going to show you on the side here on the cross member itself, on the cross member, it will have four rows of two holes each and same on this side. Basically, when you go to bolt your cross member to the slider, you can pick which height you need for your application, gives you four-position vertical adjustment to let you achieve the height you need. The height can be adjusted by simply moving this crossbeam up or down on the slider base and then bolting it into position.




B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2011 Ram 3500

Today on this 2011 Dodge Ram pickup 3500 series crew cab we're going to install part number BWRVK3500-5W. We want to make sure we remove the gooseneck ball. At this point we can go ahead and start working with our 5th wheel companion hitch. We're going to start off our hitch partially assembled already. So we see an extra set of hands to help hold it and put it into the bed of the truck and then we'll go ahead and put it into our hitch. Initially in place, we want to make sure that our pads are in the truck of the bed itself. Tighten down the hardware to secure our pads. We're lucky our bolts actually got a little bit of bind so we can just tighten them down from the top.


Husky Fifth Wheel HT31326-31196 Review

Today we're going to review part #HT31326-31196. This is the Husky Silver Series 5th wheel trailer hitch with the 10-16K glider. It has a 16,0000 lb capacity. This 5th wheel hitch with the slider will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow a 5th wheel trailer. It has a single piece jaw right here which will wrap around the king-pin to provide excellent jaw to king-pin contact, and that will give you maximum security with less rattle and chucking. Right here the slider legs will allow for required clearance for your short-bed pickup to turn safely at slow speeds. This helps prevent the trailer from hitting the cab of your pickup during those sharp slow speed turns.

  • Are Orange Vibration Isolators Included in Reese R20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30867
  • Yes, Reese supplies the upgraded orange-color heavy-duty vibration isolators you referred to as standard components in their R20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30867. My contact at Reese confirmed that they no longer use the yellow isolators.

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with Curt Gooseneck Trailer Hitch in a 2003 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • If your Curt gooseneck trailer hitch is a Double-Lock, Flip and Store gooseneck hitch (C-60 and C-600 series) with the round hole for the ball then you can use the X5 adapter # C16210 and a slider hitch which you will need for a short bed truck. You can use any slider hitch that fits in industry standard rails with the adapter. For a 16K hitch I recommend the Reese round tube slider hitch # RP30075. For a 20K you can use Curt Q20 hitch # C16536. Both of these hitches offer 12 inches...

  • Lowering the Front of 5th Wheel or Gooseneck Trailer to Tow it Level with 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • You can lower the hitch head or raise the pin box on the 5th wheel trailer (or gooseneck coupler if adjustable) to get a more level ride. If the hitch is already at the lowest setting then you would have to raise the pin box on the trailer. If you are unable to do either one you can have taller suspension hangers welded to the frame after cutting off the old hangers. This should be done by a qualified professional at a shop that works on trailers or RV dealer with a service center. I...

  • Jaws on Reese 16K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Will Not Close Around the Trailer King Pin
  • The jaws on a new 5th wheel hitch can be pretty stiff to the point where you would have to physically close the handle and jaws yourself. If the jaw opens and closes like it should without a trailer present then this is likely the issue and it will get better. If you are using a lube plate with the trailer/hitch then that might be causing the king pin to not seat down far enough. You could use grease instead of the lube plate or use approved lube plate # RP83002. It may also be binding...

  • 5th Wheel Base Rails to Fit 2015 F-550 Cab and Chassis With Custom-Made Service Body
  • Your 2015 F-550 cab and chassis with custom service body will be challenging to fit with 5th wheel base rails and a 5th wheel hitch due to the limited clearance you have for both the base rails themselves and for the hitch/pin box at the tops of your side boxes. All 5th wheel install kits are engineered for and tested on the standard OEM configurations for vehicles like your F-550. If you take a look at the linked diagram you will see the recommended minimum clearances for 5th wheel...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2011 GMC 2500 HD with 6-1/2 Ft Bed
  • I personally recommend going with the Reese R20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # RP30870, and Custom Base Rails, # RP56001-53. The Reese R20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # RP30870, offers a superior ride with minimal jarring and chucking due to the serrated dual-jaw design and built-in vibration-isolator system. This hitch has a gross towing weight capacity of 20,000 pounds. The Quick Install Custom Base Rails, # RP56001-53, include brackets that mount to existing holes in truck frame, minimizing...

  • Can a Slider Hitch Be Used in a Truck with a 5 foot 7 inch Truck Bed
  • I doubt it, anything shorter than a 6 foot bed a slider hitch won't give the clearance and most likely when slid back would put the pin box of the trailer in contact with the tailgate. The only solution we have for trucks with a bed as short as yours is to go with a Sidewinder replacement pin box. You would need to remove the pin box of the trailer and replace it with a Sidewinder pin box. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have know in...

  • Reducing Chucking when Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2010 Ram 1500
  • With any 5th wheel trailer hitch you are going to experience some chucking. This is because there needs to be some space between the king pin and the jaws to allow the trailer to pivot at the 5th wheel hitch. Adding suspension enhancement could absorb some of the road shock but it could also make for a stiffer ride. Also, often times the brackets for suspension enhancement will interfere with the brackets of the 5th wheel hitch install kit. You would likely not be able to get enough...

The brackets do not have to be bolted on if they are welded. But if you just want the peace of mind then you can certainly bolt them on.

  • I was not able to find any order history for you, however the ProSeries entry-level 5th wheel hitch # PS30857 that you referenced is intended to deliver good basic performance at a cost-effective price point. We do offer other 16K-rated hitches that include additional features for better ride quality and these include the Reese R16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Round Tube Slider # RP30869. This hitch, shown in the linked video, incorporates a serrated dual-jaw design for better king pin contact...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2005 GMC Sierra 3500 Dually for 18K 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The link provided will show you all 20K hitches and custom install kits for your GMC Sierra 3500. I do recommend a custom install kit for your 5th wheel hitch since custom kits take less time to install and will require less drilling. For an 18K trailer I suggest a hitch rated for 20K. Reese offers their R20 hitch with serrated dual jaws and 4-way pivoting head, part # RP30867, and their custom install kit # RP56007-53. This is a premium system that will deliver superior ride quality with...

  • Can a 2012 Ram Tow a 9250 Pound 5th Wheel Trailer
  • A 5th wheel trailer weighing 9,250 pounds is on the lighter side of 5th wheel trailers. I am pretty sure that your 2012 Ram can handle that if it is a 2500 or 3500 but to be sure you will want to consult the owners manual for the towing and payload capacities to make sure that your specific model has the capacity to tow the trailer. If it is a 1500 series then based on what I could find only the Tradesman Heavy Duty models have enough capacity to tow the trailer. If you can tell me more...

  • We do offer a range of sliding 5th wheel hitches for your 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 with 6-foot bed and all can be seen on the link provided. Check your manual for the vehicle towing and payload capacities, or you can determine the maximum trailer weight your truck can tow by taking a few figures from your driver's door jamb sticker. From the GCWR (gross combined weight rating) subtract the GVW (gross vehicle weight); the difference will be the maximum trailer weight you can safely tow. We...

  • Recommendation to Lock the Head of B&W Companion Hitch to Base on 2014 Ram
  • I spoke with my contact at B&W and they do not have a specific locking pin for the head on the Companion hitch # BWRVK3600. So there are some options. You could replace one of the pins with Kuat lock # KUATLOCK. It is a 5/16 inch diameter so it would fit loose in the 3/8 hole. The span of the pin is 3-1/2 inches. Or another option my contact suggested was to use a cable lock such as # 8428DPS. I do not recommend using the lock or the cable while towing the trailer though. Use the...

  • Hitch/Pin Box Recommendation to Reduce Chucking on 2006 Montana 5th Wheel Towed By 2014 GMC Sierra
  • Given that the GVW of the fifth wheel is almost 16K, you should be okay with a 16K hitch. You'll want to be sure to not exceed the capacity of your hitch. The chucking and slop you're experiencing is more a function of the fit between the hitch jaws and the king pin, rather than the capacity of the hitch itself. An entry level hitch like the Pro Series # PS30130 hitch uses a slide bar jaw that holds the king pin securely enough that it won't come free of the hitch, but the fit isn't...

  • What Truck Brand is Best for Towing a Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • All three of the companies you mentioned make great trucks that would do a great job towing your 36 foot trailer. I would recommend you go with a dually, long bed, diesel truck to make for the best towing experience. Dually trucks are safer in the event of a blow out as they have more than one tire per side of the truck. And long beds make turning much easier as a slider hitch would not be required so that you can make 90 degree turns. Slider hitches usually are much noisier than stationary...

  • Installation Instructions for Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kit for 2004 Dodge Ram 2500
  • It depends on which installation kit you have. The 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 short bed could use # RP30035-023 (but will not work on trucks with overload springs), kit # RP50140-58, kit # RP30035-186, or kit # RP56011-53. I have included links to the installation instructions for all of these kits for you. The mounting hardware is not meant to be reused. After torqueing down the hardware it will stretch and so it cannot be re-used. For replacement hardware I would need to know which kit you...
