Excellent product works great 809072

B&W makes a great hitch, however if you are in need of slider I think there are better options. The slide mechanism would bind and not slide. The unit is HEAVY. 652266

by:

The base for my hitch shipped quickly by freight. The delivery was able to drop it in the bed of my truck so I wouldn’t have to lift it in. Install was easy and I was able to pull my 5th wheel that day. Great product and great company. 584307

Best choice for short bed trucks. You can make tight turns without hitting your cab with the trailer and doing $1,000s in damage. 519264

Purchased my second hitch from etrailer along with several other items and I had a small issue with one electrical plug that was taken care of immediately by etrailer. All of the staff I talked with especially Cathy T was more than helpful this is about the 6th item I have purchased and they are the first ones I turn to for solutions and serivce and prices A+ all the way 399301

  • Does B and W Patriot and Companion Hitch Head Fit Same Hitch Base
    The Patriot head is different from the Companion head. I wish I could tell you they were interchangeable but they are not. You'd have to upgrade to a slider Companion hitch like part # BWRVK3400 if your plan is to install a Companion slider hitch in the bed of a truck with a B and W gooseneck hitch.

  • Used B&W Companion Slider Base Functionality
    The Replacement Slider Base for B&W Companion Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - 20,000 lbs # BWRVB3405 is the sliding base for the 5th wheel head # BWRVC3006.

  • Can B&W Companion Head from Fixed Hitch be Installed on Slider Base for 2017 Ford F-350
    Our contacts at B&W have indicated that the heads for all of the Companion hitches are the same. That means you can use the head from a fixed Companion hitch and mount it to the slider base # BWRVB3405. If your 2017 Ford F-350 has the factory prep package with the 4 pucks then you would need # BWRVB3370 instead. If the truck just has a gooseneck hitch then make sure it is a B&W gooseneck hitch so you can use slider # BWRVB3405. If it is not a B&W gooseneck hitch then there isn't a base...

  • B and W Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2007 Ram Mega Cab Short Bed With Existing Turnover Ball Hitch
    The B and W Fifth Wheel Hitch, part # BWRVK3400-5W is exactly what you need. It will drop right into your existing B and W Turnover Ball gooseneck hitch. The slider will allow you to move the fifth wheel head to the rear, for maximum clearance between the front of the fifth wheel and the rear of the truck cab during low speed maneuvering. The hitch would be slid into the forward position for normal driving. Since you already have a gooseneck hitch, you likely already have a 7-way connector...

  • 20K B&W Slider Base Compatibility with 18K Hitch Head
    The Replacement Slider Base for B&W Companion Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - 20,000 lbs # BWRVB3405 will work with your current hitch head off your 18000 lb slider. I reached out to my contact at B&W to confirm this as well as that your capacity will actually be the 20,000 lbs and not restricted by your current hitch head. So, your current head along with this base will give you the full 20K capacity.

  • Can Fixed B&W Companion Hitch be Converted to Slider Companion
    Yes you can install the head of your B and W Companion hitch onto a Companion slider base. All you need is the part # BWRVB3405. This is the base assembly that your head would attach directly to.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Underbed System for 2015 Chevy Silverado Short Bed with Gooseneck Integrated
    There is only one option to help you get the gooseneck and rails you desire in your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed. The standard rails attach at the same locations as the gooseneck hitch brackets so individual options are not compatible. My recommendation is to use the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Complete Hitch # RP30158-68 which will give you the underbed gooseneck hitch and the underbed rails with the pucks for a clean bed when not in use. Then you can use your current...

  • How to Determine if B and W Companion Slider 5th Wheel Hitch will Interfere with Toolbox
    From the center of the shank to each end of the base of the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVB3405 is 15 inches. That means you would need to measure 15 inches from the center of where the gooseneck ball would be of the Turnoverball hitch you have installed in the bed of your truck to determine if you have clearance.

  • Which B and W Companion Slider Base Fits 2019 Chevy Silverado
    The B and W Companion Base Slider part # BWRVB3405 replaced the part BWRVB3400 but as long as you had a B and W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch installed in your 2019 Chevy truck like the part # BWGNRK1016-5W the base would fit. If your 2019 Chevy has the factory in-bed rail kit from GM the correct base to fit that configuration would be the # BWRVK3770.

  • Can Stationary B&W Companion be Used with Short Bed on a 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    The B&W Companion # BWRVK3500 will fit with the B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1116 whether you have the 6-1/2' or the 8' bed. The only problem you would have is if by standard bed you mean 6-1/2' then you may not have enough clearance in tight turn situations and you could possibly damage the cab of your 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty. Some newer 5th wheels are coming out with a tapered nose design. If your 5th wheel has this then you could possibly get away with the stationary Companion...

  • Recommended B&W Gooseneck for 2015 Ram 3500 Mega Cab Laramie and Companion 5th Wheel Hitch
    The Replacement Base for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVB3500 or the full hitch # BWRVK3500 will work with your 2015 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab Laramie but won't give you the best turning clearance. I recommend using the sliding hitch # BWRVK3400 which uses base # BWRVB3405 with the same hitch head as the fixed hitch. You will simply need the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs # BWGNRK1314 for your truck. I also recommend...

  • Replacement B&W Companion Slider Base For 2019 Ford F-350 With Puck Prep Package
    I have a slider base that fits your 2019 Ford F-350 with 6-3/4 ft bed with OEM puck system but the replacement base part # BWRVB3405 is the replacement base for the B&W companion that fits into a B&W Turnover gooseneck hitch ball hole. You need the Replacement Slider Base for B&W OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVB3370. It is the base for the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider for Ford Towing Prep Package part # BWRVK3370 that fits your truck.

  • Can B and W Companion Hitch Be Transferred to 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 with OEM Rail Kit
    The B&W Companion Slider Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3400 is not completely compatible with your new Chevy 2500 factory pucks and gooseneck. The base # BWRVB3405 will not work, but the head is transferable to the compatible base that will fit the OEM rail kit you have in your 2017 GMC Sierra 2500. You can get the Replacement Slider Base for B&W OEM 5th Wheel Hitch - Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - 20K # BWRVB3770 and reuse the current hitch head or you can...

  • Can I Use A Sidewinder With B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch?
    We may have a solution for you if you are looking to gain turning clearance when towing your trailer, but the B&W Companion Hitches like # BWRVK3500, are not compatible with the Reese Sidewinder or Revolution King Pins. It is not recommended to use any device that changes the pivot point of your trailer's king pin with the B&W Companion Hitches. If you are looking for more turning clearance for your 5th wheel, I recommend the Replacement Slider Base for B&W Companion Slider 5th Wheel Trailer...

  • Recommended B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Position for 2015 Chevy 2500 HD Short Bed
    For your 6-1/2 foot bed on your 2015 Chevy 2500, the B&W Companion hitch you will want is the Companion Slider # BWRVK3400. The pivot arms should be as far to the back as possible for greatest clearance and the height will be dependent on the actual level towing king pin height of your trailer. I've attached the installation details to assist. For a short bed, a slider is always recommended because it will allow you the additional clearance (12 inches in this case) to allow easier...

  • Can Head From 18K B&W Companion Fit 20K B&W Companion Base For 2006 Dodge Ram 2500
    It sounds like you are wanting to increase your towing capacity. I called my contact at B&W about the head on a B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider, part # BWRVK3400-5W. They said it will fit the Replacement Slider Base for B&W Companion Slider, part # BWRVB3405. Since this base is rated for 20,000-lbs it will increase the capacity from the 18,000-lbs you have with the # BWRVK3400-5W, and will work great with your turnover ball in your 2006 Ram 2500.

  • Can Head of B and W Companion Fixed Hitch also Fit on Companion Slider Base
    You can take the head of your fixed B and W Companion hitch and install it on a B and W Slider base part # BWRVB3405 and you'd be set. But you might also consider how much easier it would be to resell a complete Companion hitch instead of just the fixed base. In that case it would be better to go with an entirely new slider Companion hitch part # BWRVK3400.

  • Availability of Aftermarket Puck System for 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2015 Ram 3500
    The only way for you to retain an open bed on your 2015 Ram 3500 without having the OEM system installed from Ram is to use the Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1314 with the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500 for a long bed or # BWRVK3400 for a short bed. If you already have a Companion then you can simply replace the base unit with part # BWRVB3500 or # BWRVB3405 respectively.

  • Replacement Base Only for a B and W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    For the base only for the B and W Companion hitch you will need # BWRVB3500 for the fixed version or # BWRVB3405 for the slider version. These are just the bases without the head and without the underbed installation kit. The link to the products below also contains current pricing information. I do strongly urge you to have the underbed components thoroughly inspected by a local place that installs 5th wheels hitches and kits. There could be damage that is not easily visible. The amount...

  • Getting More Clearance from a B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch in a 2012 Ford F-350
    My first suggestion is to assemble the Companion hitch that you have so that it is in the furthest back position. I have included a picture that illustrates the furthest back position for the Companion hitch. If that is currently how you have the hitch assembled or if you change it and there is still not enough clearance then you can install the slider base and use the same head that you already have. The slider base by itself is # BWRVB3405 rated for 20,000 pounds.
