B&W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup

Today, on this 2004 Dodge Ram pickup 2500 Series QuadCab, we're will be installing the B&W custom under-bed 5th-wheel installation kit, part number BWGNRK1313-5W. This kit is designed to work with the B&W 5th-wheel Companion hitch, part number BWRVK3500-5W. This can also be used as a Gooseneck hitch if needed. We're going to first go ahead and lower down and set aside the spare tire. Next, we're going to go ahead and remove both of the rear wheels just to make our installation a little bit easier and allow you to see things a little bit easier as well. Next, we're going to need to measure from the rear edge of the bed, right there, as part of the instructions. .



Fifth Wheel Installation - 2012 Dodge Ram

Today on our 2012 Dodge Ram pickup we'll be installing the Curt custom fifth wheel installation kit, part number c16420-204. To begin our install first note we've already gone ahead and lowered and removed the spare tire and both rear wheels. Next we'll need to remove the heat shield. To do this there are a total of five fasteners that will need to be removed. We'll go ahead and remove the fasteners, and set the fasteners and heat shield aside to be reinstalled later. Using the measurements provided with our installation kit, we'll be taking the rear base rail and set it into position.



Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation - 2002 Dodge Ram

Today on this 2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Series, were gonna install part number RP30035.Well start it off by removing the rear wheels. You dont have to do that but it makes things easier to install. Plus, you also have to remove the inner fender liners as well. Those are riveted in place so we had to drill those out. Weve also removed the spare tire additional base if we need.Now our next step would be to go ahead and start placing the rails in the bed of the truck. There are certain dimension you have to go by.



Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 Series Mega Cab

Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 Series Mega Cab we will be installing the signature series rail kit part number 30074. The first thing we want to do in preparation to installing our cross members under the bed is to remove our spare tire and get it out of the way so we have some more working room. The cross members we are going to be installing are going to be sitting in between the two hat channels right above the exhaust and over top of the gas tank as well. On standard models you can follow the directions to fit the cross members in from underneath the bed and just manipulate them into position. However on this mega cab model the spacing is not there for us to do that so what I am going to do is loosen up the bed and slide the cross members in from the outside of the frame directly across over the top. 00:48





Dodge Ram Pickup Fifth Wheel Questions and Answers


  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 2500 Long Bed
  • It sounds like your 2015 Ram 2500 long bed does not have the factory hitch prep package. The truck beds are the same for either setup so you will see the areas of the bed where a puck would be even with out the package. For a fifth wheel rail kit you would want a custom kit that would minimize drilling and install time like the part # RP50054-58. For a hitch the part # RP30033 would be a great option. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with RamBox and 6-Foot Bed
  • A short bed truck by itself can pose a challenge for 5th wheel towing due to the limited front-to-back clearance between the truck cab and the trailer's overhang. When we add the Rambox feature we also add another complication: reduced side-to-side clearance. Hitch makers like Reese, Curt and B&W discourage use of 5th wheels in such trucks; that said, there are those that have satisfactorily installed 5th wheels anyway. The best solution for the turning clearance problem in such trucks...

Pro Series Hitch # PS30094, # PS30857 and # PS30121 are good options since they are height adjustable from 13 to 17 inches.

Since the hardware from the brackets to the rails is considered one time use you will need to go with new hardware. For that you will need part # RP58430.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer hitch and Installation Kit for a 2013 Dodge Ram with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • On beds shorter than 6 feet you will need a fixed hitch and a Sidewinder on the trailer to be able to even come close to making tight turns. A slider will not offer enough travel to safely make tight turns and you will end up running the trailer into the truck cab. Also the tailgate will get in the way if a slider is used. A Sidewinder adds an additional 22 inches of clearance and is much more likely to allow you to make tight turns. I have included a link to the Sidewinder FAQ article...

For that reason we recommend using a fixed fifth wheel...
