B and W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Ford F350, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider for the Ford Towing Prep Package. The part number is BWRVK3370.Now, the companion slider's a really neat slider setup. It's designed, of course, to fit right down into that Ford Prep Package that you've got underneath the bed of your truck. Then it offers us room, it's going to slide rearward towards the truck, and that's one of the big features I really like about it. You've got your lock handle here, move that into the unlocked position, and it slides very, very easily. You'll see that handle's going to slide right back into position.There's a big benefit to this over some of the other slider systems out there on the market.


Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Ford F350 Super Duty, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Curt Q Series line of fifth wheel trailer hitches with slider for the Ford towing prep package. More and more nowadays, we're seeing trucks that have shorter than 8 foot beds on them, which comes in a problem when we go to tow as a fifth wheel, because we want our hitch to be on our forward side of our rear axle, but that ends up putting our trailer extremely close to our cab. That's where our slider's going to help out.When it comes time to make those tight turns, we can come to this vertical handle here on the side. We'll pull it out, rotate it back, and that'll allow the hitch to slide back a full 12 inches giving us our clearance to go around the turn. Then it'll lock into position so we can make that turn without fear of hitting our truck. Then, whenever we need to go in a straight line again and we're ready to tow, simply pull that handle out again, rotate it again, and our hitch will slide back and lock into the towing position.Our slider's going to have a weight capacity of 24,000 pounds, but keep in mind you don't want to exceed the weight capacity of the head that you have, and it's always a good idea to double check your truck's owner's manual and never exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight.


Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider Installation - 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty

More and more, nowadays, we're seeing trucks that have shorter than eight-foot beds on them, which comes as a problem when we go to tow in a fifth-wheel. Because we want our hitch to be on the forward side of our rear axle, but that ends up putting our trailer extremely close to our cab. That's where our slider's going to help out.When it comes time to make those tight turns, we can come to this vertical handle here on the side. We'll pull it out, rotate it back, and that'll allow the hitch to slide back a full 12 inches, giving us that clearance to build on the turn. Than we'll have a lock into position, so we can make that turn without fear of hitting our truck.

Fifth Wheel Questions and Answers

  • Can A Fifth Wheel Trailer Be Used with a Ford F-150 Supercrew 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • You may be able to use a fifth wheel, depending on the width of the trailer. Since the 5-1/2 foot bed is so short, in turning the fifth wheel trailer can end up making contact with the cab of the truck resulting in damage. The Sidewinder is essentially a hitch extender that will provide enough clearance for some fifth wheel trailers to be towed behind 5-1/2 bed trucks. You will need to take some measurements on the truck and the width of the fifth wheel trailer and calculate if you would...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Ram 3500 with Factory Installed 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • There are actually several hitches available now that fit directly into the 2016 Ram factory OEM prep package. There is also an option to use a special adapter if you already have a hitch or if you plan on getting a slider hitch (for short bed trucks). The hitches that fit directly are: # BWRVK3600, rated for 25K # C16545-16021, rated for 24K # C16530-16021, rated for 20K # C16520-16021, rated for 16K, dual jaw # C16515-16021, rated for 16K, slide-bar jaw You can also use adapter...

  • Ram Truck Factory Puck System for 5th Wheel Hitches
  • The Ram OEM 5th wheel puck system, shown in the linked photo and article, was launched in 2013 so what you have in your truck is likely to be an aftermarket installation of some kind. These newer Ram trucks with the factory prep can directly accept a specialized 5th wheel hitch such as the B&W # BWRVK3600 or the Curt # C16545-16021. Such hitches drop right into those factory pucks, allowing you to completely remove the hitch for a clear bed when necessary for cargo. Without seeing the...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for Ford Super Duty Hitch Prep Package Long Bed
  • I would recommend the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3300 that was designed to fit the underbed rail kit of your Ford F-350. The Companion is generally referred to as the nicest fifth wheel hitch on the market so I would highly recommend it for you. It has a 20k capacity so it would have more than enough capacity for your 14k trailer. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Adapter for Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package for Use with a Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • The Reese adapter you are looking for to use a standard above the bed 5th wheel hitch with the Ford factory under bed system is # RP30156. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Make sure that your Valley hitch mounting tabs are 22 inches on center front to back. The side to side measurement on center should be either 29 inches or 20-1/2 inches. Take a look at the picture I have included as an example of the side to side measurement.

  • Did Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package Come on the F-250s or Short Bed Trucks
  • The factory underbed prep package was available on the F-250 and F-350 but only on the long beds. The aftermarket kit, # RP30126, can be installed on the short bed models. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. This kit does not include the gooseneck hitch portion, only the 5th wheel portion. To add the gooseneck you would need # RP30138.

  • Do all Fifth Wheel Rails have the Same Dimensions
  • Most fifth wheel rails are made to the same industry standard dimensions. They aren't all though. If you measure 22 inches on center between the two rails and they look like the rails of the # RP30035 that you referenced they would be the industry standard. These rails can fit hitch brands Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Valley and Husky.

  • Are Replacement Parts Available For the RBW Lil Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Replacement parts for the RBW Lil Rocker are no longer available. RBW Industries, the manufacturer of the Lil Rocker, was acquired by AL-KO Kober Corp and the fifth wheel lines were discontinued. You may be able to find replacement parts on private ad sites or auction sites, but new replacement parts are not available. If you would consider a new fifth wheel hitch, we have several options that you may be interested in. An economical hitch that has a similar design to the Lil Rocker...

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit Recommendation for a RBW 15K 5th Wheel Hitch
  • You have two options for installing the RBW Lil Rocker in your 2007 Ford F-150 pickup. You can use the Universal Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit with Rails, item # RP30035, or the Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Custom Installation Brackets - Ford F-150, item # RP50081-58 that you referenced. I would recommend you use the Custom Brackets # RP50081-58, these will install in about half the time of the universal rails and will minimize the drilling into your 2007 Ford F-150. I have...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For 2018 Ford F-150 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • For your 2018 Ford F-150, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56034-53. This will be a custom fit that will allow you to install the brackets without drilling into your frame. Once you have the 5th wheel base rails installed, a number of different hitch options are available, but you will want a sliding hitch because you have a short bed truck. If you want a hitch that will automatically slide for you...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Ford F-350 with Factory Prep Package and Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • Since the trailer comes with the Reese Revolution pin box you will need a fixed hitch, not a slider, and a custom wedge to match the hitch. The wedge prevents the trailer from turning at the hitch so that it turns 22 inches further back allowing you to make tight turns without needing a slider. For a hitch that fits directly into the factory prep package on Ford trucks including your 2017 F-350 I recommend the Reese Elite hitch # RP30142. And for a custom wedge use # SWW-01.

  • 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...

  • Can Fifth Wheel Bed Rails Be Removed When Hitch is Not Being Used
  • When the Reese 5th wheel hitch is removed from the bed rails, the rails will remain in the truck bed. Once the rails are installed by bolting them through the bed to the frame brackets and tightened to their specified torque, they need to remain in place. Removing the bed rails repeatedly would cause undue stress on the mounting hardware thus weakening it, which is why the hardware is rated for a one-time use only. Using the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit, part...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch to Fit Under Roll & Lock Bed Cover on 2014 Ram 2500 Short Bed
  • 5th Wheel trailer hitches are height adjustable. You just need to find one that can be adjusted down low enough to fit under the cover on the bed of your 2014 Ram 2500 short bed. Pro Series Hitch # PS30094, # PS30857 and # PS30121 are good options since they are height adjustable from 13 to 17 inches. The lowest setting cannot be used since they are slider hitches for short bed trucks but that shouldn't matter with these hitches. You will just need the proper installation kit, # C16427-204. It...

  • Gooseneck Ball for a 2016 Ram 3500 with 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Factory Prep Package
  • There are a couple of ball kit options that fit the factory 5th wheel and gooseneck prep package on your 2016 Ram 3500. I recommend the Curt kit, # C60618, which is the ball, safety chain tie downs, and a cover for the ball hole when the ball is not being used. (None of balls the fit the OEM system will hide in the ball cavity like the Turnover ball hitches from B&W.)

This kit will include everything needed to attach the excellent Demco Hijacker # DM8550034 that you referenced to your Silverado.
