B and W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 we're gonna be taking a look, and showing you how to install, the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider, part number BWRVK3270.So here's what the Patriot looks like once we have it installed. Now this is gonna allow us to tow our 5th wheel trailer down the road safely. Now, like our truck, if you ever towed with a short bed truck, you do know that going around corners with a 5th wheel trailer does get a little squirrel-y, but luckily, if we flip this lever here, we have a slider that's built in, that's gonna give us that much more extra room, and allow us to maneuver around corners with ease. Now, it's gonna slide the full 12", getting that trailer away from our cab so we don't have to worry about crushing it.Now, our Patriot is gonna have a dual jaw mechanism. Now that's gonna have a full 360 degree kingpin contact, and it's gonna be a lot more quiet than that slider style jaw, where that bar is gonna go across and make contact that way. Now, the fully articulating head is gonna reduce all that noise, and reduce chucking while you're driving down the road.We're gonna have three different height adjustments, from 17" to 19", and that's gonna be nice so you can dial in that perfect level stance when you're towing your trailer down the road.

  • 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).

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ram 2500 Short Bed for Reese 20k Hitch

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Differences between Curt Q20 Slider Hitch and Reese R16 Slider Hitch
  • To address your concern about the compatibility of the Reese R16 Slider Hitch, # RP30869, with the Curt Custom Rail Kit, # C16448-204, they are compatible with each other.

The custom aspect of the Curt rail kit is the brackets. There is no drilling (into the frame) required to install the custom brackets and they...

  • 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.) You can also use the Reese kit # RP30140 which also includes the tie downs and cover but also includes a storage bag....

  • There are three high-quality options for you to install a fifth-wheel hitch with under bed rails on your 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed without the factory rail kit. The first hitch is the one I recommend, the B&W Companion # BWRVK3400-5W, which installs with the Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1016-5W. The rails double as a Turnoverball gooseneck hitch, and the Companion, which has a capacity of 20,000 lbs, features jaws which are 1" thick and provide full...

  • Will Installed Air Bags Interfere With Installation Of Fifth Wheel On 2001 Ford F-250 Or F-350
  • I spoke with my contact at Firestone about your 2001 Ford F-250 or F-350. Since we have a couple of air bag systems manufactured by Firestone I asked if there would be any interference when installing a fifth-wheel hitch and using the custom brackets like part # RP50082-58. My contact at Firestone said that if you have an air bag system like the # F2550 installed on your truck, they would not interfere with a fifth wheel installation because the brackets for the air bag system are installed...

  • 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...

  • Is there a Standard Hitch Ball Size for Gooseneck Hitches
  • Most 25K or 30K gooseneck hitches come with a standard 2-5/16" hitch ball. If you were to get a Hide-a-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch from Draw-Tite # 9460-48, you would have the option to get a different sized ball. This hitch comes with a 2-5/16 sized ball but you could also purchase a Gooseneck Hitch Ball # 19307. This ball has a 3 inch diameter.

  • What Bed Rails to Install RBW Model X-16 5th Wheel in 1993 Chevrolet C/K Pickup
  • I first contacted RBW concerning compatibility of their X16 hitch with other brands of base rails, but since they exited the hitch business about 5 years ago they were unable to help me. My contact at Reese was unable to verify the RBWs fit to their base rail kit, but advised you can check compatibility by measuring the spacing for the mounting legs on your hitch. If they are 22 or 29 inches center-to-center, they should work with most standard base rails, including the two below. For...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Installation Kit for 2003 Ford F-250
  • Thank you for providing those important details about your 2003 F-250 that will soon be home to a new 5th wheel hitch. Since you have a short bed pickup you will need a slider type hitch to ensure enough turning clearance for your low-speed maneuvers. For a base rail/installation kit I suggest using a custom-fit option that reduces your overall install time and the amount of drilling needed. Since these industry-standard rails kits are not hitch-specific, you can use any brand of rail...

  • 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.

  • For your new 2017 Ford F-250 short bed you have some options for 5th wheel hitches and installation kits. For an install kit I recommend going with a custom kit, # RP50074-58. With a custom kit there is less drilling required and it takes less time to install compared to universal kits. And for a hitch I recommend the Reese Titan 20 # RP30870. This hitch is rated for 20,000 pounds, features the super-secure serrated dual jaw design, and it is cushioned. I have linked a video review of...

  • 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.
