Video Transcript for B and W Fifth Wheel BWRVC3006 Review

Today we're going to review part number BWRVC3006. This is the replacement head assembly for the B&W Companion fifth-wheel trailer hitches. It has a 25,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this replacement hitch head will fit the B&W Companion fifth-wheel trailer hitches. This head assembly, when used with the correct B&W base assembly, will make up the B&W Companion fifth-wheel hitch assembly. The head, this has the dual jaw design, has the one-inch deck dual jaws, which will provide a 360-degree jaw-to-kingpin contact. That will give you less rattle and more security than the slide bar jaws.

It has this cam-action latching handle which helps prevent binding. It's very simple to release, even on un-level terrain, and it is lockable. It comes with a pinning clip, but it is also lockable if you buy a padlock that we sell separately you can put through here and permanently lock it. But just to show you how this handle works is you release the pin and clip, and then as you move this handle towards the cab or the front of the tow vehicle, you'll notice that the jaws do open, both dual jaws, and then when your kingpin slides in here, the weight will push up against the back here, which would force this handle to slide up, jaws would close around the kingpin, your handle would only go so far, and then you just drop your pin and clip in, or your padlock, whichever you decide to use. You just drop that in there to lock it into place, then that handle wouldn't move and it'll keep the jaws wrapped around the kingpin. It does have a fully articulating head when this is installed on the pivot arms.

It will rotate front to back, and this plate right here will go side-to-side so that fully articulating head will ease the hook up, helps to limit chucking. This head assembly is made of steel, and it's a gray, powder-coat finish which is corrosion-resistant. Again, the max gross towing weight capacity on this is 25,000 pounds. Max vertical load limit is 6250 pounds. But you need to remember those when this is installed on the base assembly to get the whole fifth-wheel hitch.

The capacity that this head assembly will have will be determined by that capacity of the base that it is installed on. And then one last thing I want to show you is when - this is taken off the base assembly, but when you go to install it onto the pivot arms, basically what you would do is you pull the clip out, pull the pin out, pull the clip over here, pull the pin out, and then what you do is you grab these two handles right here and when you pull up to lift it up that'll allow you to drop it on the pivot arms, and then when you let this down, it'll hold it into place, and then you put your pins back through. The reason they do this, it'll make it a lot easier when you have the whole fifth wheel installed in your vehicle, and if you don't have anybody around to help you remove it, you can actually remove the head assembly to cut down on the weight, and then you can remove the base assembly separately as just one person. And then once you install you put your pin back in, and go ahead and put your clip in, and do the same over here, once this is installed on the pivot arm. And then put your clip in, and with those installed that'll hold it on the the pivot arms of your base assembly. But that should do it for the review on part number BWRVC3006, the replacement head assembly for the B&W Companion fifth-wheel trailer hitches. .

Our second B&W Companion hitch. Will not even consider another product / brand given our positive experience. 911186

It arrived ahead of schedule which was awesome so thanks for that. However the product came with extra parts and no instructions for there installation. Had to dig online to find out what they were for and how to install. Other than that hiccup the product works flawlessly. 822019

The hitch components that I ordered were delivered in a timely manner and as advertised. I would definitely recommend using etrailer. 824855

Super fast to get us back on the road 791719

Initially I was excited to mount my new companion 5th wheel head unit onto my existing base until I realized whoever packed the hardware failed to include 1 of 2 bolts. It's a fairly straightforward process however for $ written instructions would have also been nice considering their is additional hardware that I had to go online and download instructions to be sure I installed everything to spec. On a positive note; the head unit itself seems well built and the finish is beautiful. I am confident it will serve it's purpose without fail. 791605

- BWRVC3006

Great service and good prices. I was in a hurry and didnt do all the research i should have and ordered the smaller head at first and went to put the hitch together and realized i ordered the 18k head that didn't fit my base. I called and Noah got me all set and got the correct head sent to me in no time. Great folks to deal with. 787144

BW is hands down the best hitch made ! 556373

Product came fast this head is built like a tank. B&W is the best made in my opinion. I absolutely love shopping with etrailer there customer service and delivery speeds are the best in the business. Prices are always good I never shop anywhere but here when I need stuff for my truck or trailer. 519909

Great deal on the B&W companion 5th wheel head all I needed was the head it was called a used item but was never put in use it did have a grease zerk broken off in the center head pivot but was not an issue for me as I have removed many in the past and etrailer sold it to me for much less than a new one, which sells for 550.00 so I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Thank you etrailer as always very happy with the many purchases I have made from them A+. 472695

Fast shipping and fair prices. Happy with hitch. 441591

Excellent product. I have had two tow vehicles and used the B&W hitch on both. Always satisfied. etrailer also provides excellent support. 437921

UPS dropped the ball. Other than that this is as advertised. 417854

- BWRVC3006

The product was shipped 2 days earlier than I expected, and the packaging was in excellent condition. As far as l am concerned B & W hitches are the best on the market. The entire hitch is fabricated and not stamped like some other units I looked at. Yes , the unit is heavy but I never have to worry about anything I hook to it ! As long as I continue to pull my 5 th wheel I will never use anything but B&W. Excellent unit ! 415053

- BWRVC3006

Great looking heavy well made product and the unit was shipped the night I ordered and received Monday after the Thursday night order. Good phone service with call back service from etrailer when lines are busy so no long on phone hold waiting time waste. 374973

No issues or problems
