Video Transcript for B and W Fifth Wheel BWRVB3370 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the replacement slider base for the B&W OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch that fits the Ford towing prep package. It has a 20,000 pound weight capacity. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty trucks with the factory-installed towing prep package. This part is the replacement base, which will fit the B&W Companion OEM Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, which is part number BWRVK3370, and we do sell that hitch separately on our website. This part includes the adjustable pivot arms here, that will let you mount the hitch head to fit your application. The hitch head is part number BWRVC3006.

Again, we sell that separately on our website. Basically, these adjustable pivot arms let you raise or lower it with three hitch height settings, anywhere from 17" to 19". Basically, when you go to tow your 5th Wheel, you want it to tow as level as possible with your tow vehicle, so when you put the hitch head on, you want to adjust it to get the correct height to keep it level. The hitch head measurement is always from the truck bed to the top of the plate on the hitch head, so this one here, when you install these adjustable pivot arms, on the slider base here, there's like five rows of holes. There are four bolts on each pivot arm, so when you go to install this, you can put it at what correct height you need it for your application.

You notice on the top of these pivot arms, they have polyurethane bushings, which give a nice rattle-free ride. This is a very quick, simple installation. This whole base will just drop into the four receiver pucks that are built into your factory under-bed rails. It's pretty simple to install. You go to the side here, pop the pin and clip off, and you'll have these arms that you just rotate out 90 degrees. When you do that, the tabs underneath will open up, and you'll do the same on that side.

With the open like that, it's ready to just drop right into those four pucks in your vehicle. Once they drop in, you just rotate these handles back same way on that side take your pin and clip to lock them into place, run it through both handles, and you're all ready to go. It's locked in, ready to tow. If you notice, it has a nice gray, powder coat steel, which is corrosion resistant. This part is made in the USA.

Specs on this again, the gross towing weight capacity is 20,000 pounds. The vertical load limit is 5,000 pounds. The travel range on the slider's 12" front-to-back. I just want to demonstrate how the slider would work. Basically, what you would do . Right now, it's locked in the towing position, which is the hitch would be closest to the cab of the tow vehicle. If you get into a situation when you're making some sharp turns, like at a campground, you'll want to get that extra 12" of clearance, so what you'll do is take this handle, just flop it up into the unlocked position. There's an arrow here that will say, "Unlocked." Now it's free to move, so when you start moving around, you'll notice this will slide, and once it gets back to the 12" maneuvering position, you can notice it locks automatically into place, and then you can make your sharp turns. When you're done, and you're ready to get on the road and tow again, you want to move the hitch as close as possible to your tow vehicle. Again, just put it in the unlock position, and when you move it, it'll same way slide back into the towing position. You notice that the handle locks everything into position, simple as that. But that should do it for a review on the replacement slider base for B&W OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch that fits the Ford towing prep package, and has a 20,000 pound weight capacity.

The B&W Companion slider hitch is a a quality American made product that performs as advertised. I have always used B&W products and they never fail to disappoint, they just work!! I bought a Ford F-250 with the 6 1/2 ft bed and was concerned about cab to fifth wheel clearance issues. I seldom have neededthe slider but it’s nice to know it’s there if I do. There is no play and the sliding mechanism locks up easily and very solidly. I am very happy with this product! 489589

  • How to Install B and W Companion for Gooseneck Hitch in 2017 Ford F-350 with Factory Rail Kit
    Since your customer has a 2017 Ford F-350 with a factory rail kit and a Companion hitch the only solution is to replace the base of the Companion with one that fits the factory rail kit. So if they have a long bed hitch they'd want the Companion fixed base part # BWRVB3300, or if they have a short bed they'd need the slider base part # BWRVB3370. The head of their hitch will easily swap onto either base.

  • Converting B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch to Fit 2018 Super Duty F-350 with factory Gooseneck

What you need to do is replace the base of your current B&W Companion that fits into the Turnoverball gooseneck with a base that fits into the Ford fifth wheel pucks on your 2018 Ford F-350. If you have a long bed truck use the fixed hitch base, part # BWRVB3300. If you haev a short bed truck use the sliding hitch base, part # BWRVB3370, to help with turning clearance.

If you already have the Companion hitch, then you can use the hitch head and simply get the factory prep compatible base.

It might be a better option though to go with an all new Ford Companion slider hitch part # BWRVK3370 as that would allow you to sell your old hitch as a complete unit which would be easier than just a base.
