What our customers are saying:

I checked around locally for the best price on a Reese 16k 5th wheel hitch with a kwik-slide for my short bed Dodge Ram. I found your website while searching for info. on 5th wheel hitches and was surprised to discover that the identical hitch was $110 cheaper, even with a shipping charge of $94.00. You folks are awesome and it only took 3 days to receive my shipment. I will definitely be back. Thanks again.

Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation - 2015 Ram 3500

Today on our 2015 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty Crew Cab we're going to be installing the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package vehicles, rated for 25,000 pounds, part number BWRVK3600. There's a handle on each side that has the black rubber piece on it. As you lift up, that's what releases it so that when you set it down on, it catches and locks it in place. You'll then need to take the pin, go back through, put your clip in. You need to do that for both sides. Now the head can pivot forward and backwards. Now that we have the head attached, to release the jaws so that you can hook up your camper or trailer, you remove the pin.



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.





Ram 3500 Fifth Wheel Questions and Answers


  • Will a Sidewinder Pin Box Work with a B and W Companion Hitch for Ram Fifth Wheel Rail Kit
  • Yes, the Sidewinder pin boxes will work well with the B and W Companion Hitch for Ram Rail kits # BWRVK3600. The only Companion hitches that won't work with Sidewinders are the ones that install in the gooseneck hitch ball holes. Since the # BWRVK3600 has 4 attachment points in the bed of your truck it will work great with the Sidewinder. The correct wedge to use with this hitch for your sidewinder is part # SWW-06. This hitch will work great for you and will fit the rail kit you...

  • Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 3500 Short Bed
  • We have exactly what you would need. In order to install a slider hitch in the hitch prep package of your 2016 Ram 3500 with the hitch prep package you will need the rail adapter part # RP30154. With that you could install the Reese 20k Slider Select Plus Hitch part # RP30083. This hitch is great because it has a round tube slider that will operate smoother than a square tube and it has a jaw system that provides 360 degrees of contact so you will get a smooth quiet ride. I attached...

  • Is 5th Wheel Capture Plate Needed to Tow 5th Wheel Trailers
  • Capture plates are exclusive to PullRite sliding hitches and are used to help activate its automatic sliding feature. The plate installs on the trailer pin box, not on the hitch, so you can tow any brand of 5th wheel trailer without a capture plate as long as you do not have a PullRite hitch. If you do have a PullRite hitch you'll need to have a capture plate on the trailers you're pulling.

  • Yes, the Curt fifth wheel rail kit part # C16426-204 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Ram 3500 long bed without the hitch prep package. It will work well with your Q24 fifth wheel hitch part # C16245. The fifth wheel rails and brackets do not have capacities. What the rail manufacturers state is that the rails will have the capacity of whatever the hitch is that is installed on them.

  • Yes, you can install an under-bed 5th wheel installation kit. For your 2016 Ram 3500 short bed without the factory prep package I recommend Demco install kit # DM8551006. When the hitch is removed the bed will be clear for cargo. For a 5th wheel trailer hitch that fits this kit I recommend the Demco HiJacker auto-sliding 5th wheel trailer hitch # DM8550037. This hitch is rated for 21,000 pounds gross trailer weight. It slides automatically so you will not have to get in and out of the...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Puck System
  • One of the most quiet 5th wheel hitches on the market is the Reese Titan 5th Wheel Hitch. For your short bed truck, I recommend the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Round Tube Slider # RP30870. To fit this hitch to the puck system in your truck bed, you can use the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154. The Titan offers a smooth, quieter ride thanks to the cast pivot beam in the hitch, and heavy-duty dampeners minimize rattle and noise. This sliding hitch offers 11 inches...

For a direct fit Reese hitch you can use # RP30160, rated for 20,000 pounds.

  • The Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # RP30143, which you referenced, is not listed as a fit for the 2015 Ram 3500 short bed. Also with a short bed truck we recommend using a slider so that you have clearance to make tight turns. One option you have is to keep the Elite Series 5th Wheel hitch head and put it on the cross beam, part # 58293. To turn this part into a slider you could then use # RP30048. Or for a fixed hitch use legs # RP30727. Then you can use the hitch in...

  • As far as fits go the situation was that on Curt kit # C16426-204 they had excluded dually models. But we have installed this kit on a dually model and have been told by Curt recently that it will fit. So if your 2015 Ram 3500 does not have the factory prep package for a 5th wheel hitch, you should be able to use this Curt kit. And your Reese hitch will fit it. But I can tell you that Reese installation kit, # RP50085-58, will fit dually models for sure and your hitch will fit this installation...

No other parts are needed! I have included a link to a video review of this hitch for you. There are several other hitches that will also install directly.

  • Can a Curt Q24 5th Wheel Slider Hitch be Installed in a 2015 Ram 3500 Long Bed w/Prep Package
  • Slider hitches do not come up in the fit guide for long bed trucks because a slider hitch is not needed on a long bed. Slider hitches are used on short bed trucks because without them there is not enough clearance between the truck cab and the trailer to make tight turns. But there is clearance on a long bed so no slider is needed. For a 2015 Ram 3500 long bed with the factory prep package you would use Curt Q24 hitch # C16545-16021. If you wanted to use the slider version you would...

  • 5th Wheel Sliding Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Ram 3500 6-Foot Bed with Factory Rail Kit
  • Nice truck! I hope you enjoy your road trips. We do not offer any auto-slider 5th wheel hitches but we do have many standard sliding hitch options from Pro Series, Reese and B&W. Even better, since your truck has the factory prep package you have the option to use a fixed hitch like B&W # BWRVK3600 along with a Sidewinder replacement pin box. This hitch fits right into your factory pucks. This type of set-up provides much better turning clearance than any slider. This is the case because...

  • Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Adapter for a 2015 Ram 3500 Short Bed with Factory Prep Package
  • First, the toolbox will likely have to come out because even if it doesn't interfere with the hitch base it could interfere with the pin box on the trailer when making tight turns. To install a slider hitch in your 2015 Ram 3500 short bed with the factory prep package you will need an adapter since none of the slider hitches are a direct fit in the Ram puck system. And for a hitch, I recommend going with a slider that has the most travel to help make tight turns. For an adapter you...

If you have a short bed truck though you will also need to use a Sidewinder on the trailer to have enough clearance to make turns without hitting the truck and trailer together. Sidewinders only fit certain trailer pin boxes. To determine if there is a Sidewinder that will fit your trailer, find...

If your new 2015 Ram 3500 has the factory 5th wheel prep package then to use the hitch you will need adapter # RP30154 or adapter # DM6099 (the rounded rail design of # DM6099 would be better for slider hitches). Both of these adapters accept hitches that fit in industry standard above the bed rails.

  • Automatic Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 3500 Diesel
  • I have an automatic sliding hitch for you, but we are not a dealer for Pullrite products, so we do not offer the SuperGlide hitches. Instead, I recommend looking at the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th wheel hitch, # DM8550034. This is an automatic sliding hitch just like the SuperGlide hitch, but it has a few advantages over the SuperGlide. If your Montana 3100RL has a standard pin box, you do not need to weld a capture plate to the underside of the pin box, which is required for the SuperGlide....

  • Short or Long Bed 2015 Ram 3500 Recommendation for Towing a Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • If the main purpose of the truck will be for towing the fifth wheel trailer I would strongly recommend the long bed. Short bed trucks require the use of slider hitches when towing fifth wheel trailers so that they have enough clearance to make sharp turns. While this is a viable option that many people go with, it also requires you to get out of your truck and slide the hitch back or forward every time you enter or leave a parking lot. It's not the end of the world, but it can be a hassle....

The Comapion series of fifth wheel hitches is often regarded as the nicest fifth wheel hitch around. Many people swear by them. Because of that I would recommend it for you. The Curt height range is 13-17 inches, and the Companion is 17-19. The only reason I would go with the Curt would be if the height of the Companion is too high. I attached an install video for the Companion for...

I did some research and found that a 2015 Ram 2500 with the Cummins diesel has a payload about 2,996 lbs and a towing capacity of 17,600 lbs. The towing capacity would be for the fully-loaded-ready-to-tow condition of your trailer. Another rating I found for this truck is the GCVW. This is the combined weight of the...

You will see that on gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1314 from B&W safety chain attachment u-bolts are included. Please see the linked photo I have prepared for you.

  • Could a 2015 Ram 3500 Tow a 16,000 lb Travel Trailer
  • Your 2015 Ram 3500 would have no problem towing a 16k fifth wheel trailer. You can check the towing capacities in the owners manual but I can guarantee they capacities are higher than needed to tow a 16k fifth wheel trailer. To use the Reese Select Plus fifth wheel hitch # RP30081 that you referenced will only require the installation of a fifth wheel rail kit. For you truck you would want the part # RP56010-53 since your truck has a long bed without the hitch prep package.

You will 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 now in order to pick out the correct one.

The Reese Low-Profile 5th Wheel Hitch you referenced, part # RP30054 is meant for flat bed or cab and chassis trucks only, and would not be a good choice for your 2014 Ram with the OE prep package. I suppose if you were willing to go through enough modification...

  • 20K Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2014 Ram 3500 with Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • There are no slider hitches that fit directly into the factory 5th wheel prep package for your 2014 Ram 3500. What you can do though is use # RP30154 and then a slider hitch in it, # PS30121. This will get you under the dealers price. I have included a couple of video reviews of these parts for you.

  • 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...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kit Options for 2014 Ram 3500 with or without OEM Prep Package
  • First a quick note on the air suspension package from Dodge: There are no aftermarket 5th wheel installation kits that will fit with the air suspension. If you want the air suspension and you can get both it and the 5th wheel prep package from the factory then that is the only way you can have both. Flipping trailer axles is never a good idea. Axles have a bow in them so that the center of the axle points up. The weight of the trailer straightens out the axle. That is partially what...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Ram 3500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • Although B & W and Curt are both great companies that produce quality products, when it comes to a fifth wheel hitch for your 2014 Ram 3500 with the factory rail kit, I recommend going with one of our Curt Q-Series fifth-wheel hitches. This series features a 360 degree pivoting head to make hitching on uneven surfaces much easier and are also equipped with a built-in cushion to help absorb road shock. The Q-Series hitch is offered in three different weight capacities: 16,000 LB Part...
