Video Transcript for B and W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Replacement Base Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the replacement base for the B and W Companion OEM Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, designed for use with the 2011 or newer Ford Super Duty prep package. Part number is BWRVB3300.Now this replacement base is gonna work out really well if you've damaged yours somehow. They're really heavy duty, very sturdy. I don't think that's gonna happen a whole lot. But if you have an older vehicle that had a companion in it, or if you have a second vehicle that has a companion in it, by just purchasing the base, you can save yourself a lot of money by pulling the head off of here, putting it on truck to truck.Now as far as weight ratings go with the companion, you've got a 5,000 pound vertical load limit. That's the maximum downward force we can put on it.

And it gives us a 20,000 pound gross trailer weight rating, that's gonna be the total weight of our trailer, anything we load up on it.Definitely check the owners manual of your truck, though. See what it's rated for, and don't exceed that.Now here's a good look at the polyurethane bushings that make the contact point between where the head sits down and on, and our base. Now polyurethane's gonna be much longer lasting than rubber. It doesn't tend to kind of distort, or hold a memory. So that's gonna give us good, long lasting performance.By softening up that contact point, we're not gonna feel the trailer on the back of the truck quite as much, and we're gonna reduce a lot of the noise.

Now the companion also offers a full range of adjustment here. We have our arm set currently in the forward position, but if we we're to switch this side to that side, and vice versa, we're actually gonna move this point rearward just a little bit. That can give you extra space between the front of your trailer and the cab of your truck.We're also gonna have height adjustment here with our four bolts. Behind this there're gonna be three bolt holes to choose from. So we can set it at it's lowest setting up to it's highest setting, and that's gonna give us two inches of adjustment.Now with your prep package in your vehicle, you are gonna take the rubber caps out of the top to begin your installation.

Typically a screw driver, this is just a plastic trim panel tool, just gonna pop them up and out, set them aside, so you can replace them when you're done.Now we'll grab our base. We wanna get it up in position. We typically put these in two pieces, you take the head off. Makes it a lot easier to work. If you've got two guys, you could probably get it in here in one piece, or maybe you're just really tough.But what we need to do is release our latches down here at the bottom.

Just got a clip there that holds those handles closed. And then we're gonna rotate them out, just like that. And do that on both sides.And you'll see the lug right down here, it should be lined up forward and back with the truck. Kind of in line with the truck. We'll get those slid down in each of the holes.Now we need to test our handle. And see, we're trying to turn it, it's a little bit too tight. It won't close for us. Check this one, it's the same way. So what we'll do, remove the cotter pin here. We need to loosen this castle nut up just a little bit.There it goes. Okay. That went in pretty well. A little bit of resistance, so we'll tighten it up just a notch. Yeah, that seems to be good. You don't want it to just slip in really easy, but you also don't want it to be so hard where you have to kind of tap it in or anything like that. So we'll call that one good. Put our cotter back in, spread it out.And now we'll do that for the three remaining locations, and get those all set. We need to get the spring put on, that's gonna keep our head level while we're hooking up and disconnecting. This just kind of slides over the steel here, we want the top of the spring to be about a half inch below the black right there.Now we can put the head down on the base. You can see you're gonna grab the handle on each side. And a snug fit, just kind of wiggle it a little bit as you go down. Just like that, until those handles will go down. And we'll slide our pins through each side, and get those secured with our clips.And that's gonna complete our look at the replacement base for the B and W Companion OEM Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch for the Ford Super Duty prep package, part number BWRVB3300.

Love my B&W hitch for my new Ford. Super easy to install and the quality is second to none. Derek from etrailer.com made purchasing my new hitch easy as well. He's very knowledgeable in the product and answered all my questions. I will never own a different hitch other than a B&W. Great experience all around. 361172

Super easy to install. Dropped the replacement base in to the ford pucks put the fifth wheel plate on and was good to go. This hitch is not as heavy as my other companion hitch. Love b&w 185310

2017 F350 with factory hitch (puck) system. I bought the B&W base plate to use with my existing B&W 5th Wheel hitch that was the older drop in style. The new plate fits the truck very well even with a spray in bed liner and rubber bed mat. Locks up very snug and hovers over the bed with out fear of it touching, smashing and deforming the aluminum bed. As others have said the install was quick and easy and now the new truck is ready to hit the road. 445929

Real nice upgrade for my existing companion to work with my new truck. Had it in and adjusted in about 45 minutes. Fast free shipping, e trailer hasn't let me down yet. 579818

I updated my old 2012 f350 short bed that had a B&W turnover gooseneck ball and companion 5th wheel slider. New 2018 f350 has the Ford gooseneck package from factory. This base works perfect with the new truck, being able to use my old 5th wheel top plate saved a lot. 492649

Shipped quickly, easy to put together. Fit like a glove into the factory ford f450 gooseneck bed. 413755

Couldn't be much easier to setup and install. I had the full Companion hitch in my previous Ford and was happy to be able to reuse the head with this base in my new truck. Saved about $800. The Ford 5th wheel prep system is very, very strong and this base fits in the pucks perfectly. This base is smaller and more compact making it easier to lift in and out of the truck bed and takes less space against the wall in the garage. Great product from B&W as usual. 318994

This is my 2nd Companion hitch. First was used in a short bed truck, needed the sliding Companion. I now have a new truck, Ford F-350 LB, with the 5th wheel prep. pkg. I kept the top section and simply ordered the lower section designed to drop right in on the Ford. I was amazed at the design of the B&W Companion Hitch. It really took about 3 min to install this unit in my truck. The folks at etrailer.com were very helpful, they answered all my questions, and followed up both during and after delivery. My unit arrived on time and would highly recommend etrailer.com to anyone looking for Goose Neck or 5th wheel hitches. 304462

Already was using the Companion hitch in my old truck, when we ordered our new truck, we got the hitch prep package. Just had to order new base to use with the puck system. Although the Companion does weigh a bit more than some other hitches, I feel it is the best one available. 659704



- BWRVB3300
by:

Excellent product. Quality was what I was expecting from B&W. It's a much simpler system to take in and out of the truck than the original Companion, no tools, can be in or out in a minute or two. It's nice that they sell just the lower unit separate from the upper, as my upper was perfectly fine just need this lower to fit my current vehicle. 647503

Would have given it a 5 star other than it missing one of the bolts that bolt the legs to the base plate. I have used B and W for several years and love the products. The only reason I bought this product was because I bought a new truck and it come with the new still puck system and I just used the head from my older Companion hitch that I had with my B and W turn over ball hitch. 616868

The BWRVB3300 hitch is exactly what I needed and it was delivered in less than 5 days. 601617

We had the gooseneck version of this hitch for 2015 F250. Unfortunately that truck was totaled in an accident. So we ended up buying a 2017 F250 which had the factory installed puck system which meant we needed a new base. There is no better hitch than B&W. Love the simplicity, the quality and reliability that B&W provides. Add to that the knowledge that eTrailer provides, the instructional videos and sales staff, I couldn't be happier. I ordered on a Wednesday & it was delivered Thursday afternoon. 594252

After a year it’s working great the only thing I would change would be is buying the slider instead but that’s my fault and not there’s, the suggested it, my bad.

I have had several B&W product in the past with nothing but the highest of quality. The base plate for the factory Ford fifth wheel hitch was not the same quality I had received in the past. After continuously adjusting latch cam bolts I could only make the plate contact the truck bed in 3 points at one time. Under load of my 14000 lbs camper a lot of uneasy noises coming from hitch not what I was expecting. 503596


Comments

The latch cams are adjustable, and may need to be adjusted independently since the OEM pucks may be at different depths. This information can be found on the current version of the installation instructions on page 3 of 5.

Very happy with the hitch and the website. We upgraded our truck and needed a new base. We tried shopping locally first. No local retailer would sell just the base or come anywhere close to the price we got on etrailer. It came quickly and the hitch was not damaged. We'll be doing all future trailer business with etrailer. 353446

Base for B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ford Super Duty. Bought a new truck with the factory pucks. Reused my old B&W head. Have used the new base for a year with no issues. Have used the old B&W head on three bases for past 10+ years. B&W is the best hitch and eTrailer is tops to work with. Pricing is good and customer service is top notch. 325939
