Video Transcript for Review of B and W Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - BWRVR2505

Ellen: Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at the BMW custom mounting brackets. These are going to be for your fifth wheel above bed base rails from BMW. Now those rails are sold separately for this particular kit. You'll need part number BWRVR3210.

Again, sold separately right here at etrailer.com. If you want to get those with your kit, that would be the part you need.But this is going to be a custom fit for the 2020 and newer GMC and Chevrolet trucks. It's going to be for the 2500 and the 3500 short and long bed. The only exception to that it's not designed to work with the carbon pro beds. Just not ready for that at the moment.

Basically what you're going to get is everything you see laid out here on the table. We'll get our custom brackets for the front and rear on either side, and then all the hardware to get everything installed. Also comes with some fish wires, so you can get your hardware going through the frame and everything lined up. The nice thing about this custom kit is that we don't have to worry about any frame drilling. You're not going to have to make any modifications to the truck frame.

Of course, you do need to drill some holes to get the rails installed so the hardware can go through, but that's the only modification we're making to our vehicle.Everything else is going to be designed to accommodate for the curves and custom fits the parameters for your frame. It should be a pretty easy, pretty straightforward install as far as a fifth wheel install kit goes. The nice thing that I like about BMW is it just seems like they take their time with making sure that everything is machined properly, everything fits well, and that it's a really nicely made system. Their powder coat is also going to cover all the surfaces really well. As you can see, everything is coated with that gray powder coat, which is BMW's signature.

That's going to help it to resist any kind of corrosion. The brackets are also made out of a sturdy steel.Everything is made in the USA. That's always a great addition to our kit that we know that it's American made. It is covered by a lifetime limited warranty from BMW. That's pretty much it as far as our look at the BMW custom mounting brackets. Again, the part number for the rails is going to be BWRVR3210, and that'll get you rolling with everything you need. Thanks for watching. We'll see you next time. If you need any other accessories to go with your fifth wheel rails, we've got a lot of options and a lot of information here at etrailer.com. Definitely check it out. Thanks.

Tech assistance with questions and ordering process was great. I will use etrailer again and will recommend them to others. Unit is solid and well built, just as advertised. Assembly and installation was straightforward but prepare for lifting help as the base unit is quite heavy. This is a replacement upgrade and I can't wait for weather to get better and go camping.


Comments
After a full year I am very satisfied with this B&W 5th wheel hitch, solid latching and quiet, no slop operation.

I will know more on the quality and functionality when I get the chance to use it. The packaging was completely destroyed when it arrived. I would have thought it would have been packaged in more than a cardboard box for shipping an 85 lb piece of steel. (Base unit only). Hitch packaging was fine. Some minor scratches but no major damage. Carrier just dropped it off and left, without notifying me he arrived. (I was home, but in another part of the house). Otherwise, I probably would have rejected the shipment.


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you. I would recommend using a rust resistant paint to touch up the hitch.

Product outstanding, customer relationship most professional. The product is exactly as advertised. All of its characteristics have been utilized and work well. Definitely met my expectations and looking to use the Patriot 18K for years to come. It far and away out performs my previous 5th wheel. Great value.

Excellent!!!

Hitch is superb. I've used it two or three times, no clunk when you start or stop. Slider works well and makes hooking up much easier. Have not needed to use it to park the trailer as I have more room between the cab and trailer. I'd buy this again. A bit heavy for an old guy to lift but I have a tractor to assist with getting it in the truck bed. Pulling a 35 foot toy hauler with it.

What an awesome hitch. Other hitches you have to do the “tug test” to validate the jaws being locked. Not so with this B&W hitch. Once you back into it and the jaws close, it’s locked!

A real gem - so easy to use. After owning a poorly designed hitch that was a true headache the B & W Patriot hitch felt like a lifesaver. Everything attaches easily and securely. No problems and no worries when traveling. Thank You etrailer.com

The Patriot 5th hitch is great. It was very easy to assemble. And it's solid my 5th wheel is 40ft long and about 13,000 lbs and it feels good going down the road, it has no play or back lash. It's fun to pull. And after the 1st year of owning and using the Patriot the finish is still doing great. I would defiantly recommend the B&W.


Comments
The hitch is doing great. Still as good as new.

This hitch is great. I kind of wish I would have got the auto slider, but the manual option suffices and it was much cheaper. Just a matter of getting out to slap the lever back or forward. No big deal.

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


I did my research on this hitch and was convinced it was the one I wanted yet I still felt the need to get some input from the pros, 2 phone calls (one to E-trailer and one to B&W) and I came away with peace of mind that the B&W was the right one for me. Best of all they did not try to up sell me to the 22k hitch two rv dealers tried to tell me I would need to safely pull the 16,500 gvwr 5th wheel I was in the process of buying. The hitch was reasonably priced, arrived in a timely manner in good condition and installation was straight forward. Bottom line I couldn’t be happier with my B&W hitch but most of all my decision to buy it from etrailer

We received the hitch and brackets packaged very well. The installation went well and pretty straight forward. We did not have our 5th wheel to set the height but took a lucky guess at 18". We picked the RV up and couldn't be happier with this hitch. Absolutely no chucking, very smooth ride. We have an uneven slope to back down to get to our RV pad and were concerned about that. With the swivel on this hitch, backed with no problem. We wouldn't settle for any other hitch if we have to ever buy another one. The RV sales and service people were very impressed with this hitch and the way it is set up with the frame brackets. Very happy customers!

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


Purchased B&W Patriot 5th wheel hitch from etrailer a year ago. Received the hitch right away without any problems. etrailer.com was easy to purchase from. We were first time buyers on a 5th wheel. Had been using a new competitors hitch we bought from our dealership. Worse purchase ever. The competitor had just gotten into the 5th wheel hitch part recently. Went through 5 heads we received from the competitor and the hitch still did not work right. It would take us half an hour to an hour to hook up or unhook. Decided to take loss on hitch and buy a B &W hitch. The B & W hitch was awesome. Hooks up and unhooks in minutes. It is so easy. Would recommend B &W and etrailer anytime. The price from etrailer was great and was the cheapest price I could find anywhere. If I could have, I would have given B & W and etrailer 10 stars for the review.


Comments
Still the greatest purchase. So easy and quick. Wouldnt even consider buying any other brand, will stay with B & W. Happy Campers!

This was my first fifth wheel hitch that I have ever used or installed on my truck. It was recommended to me by other RV folks that have fifth wheels. The price for the hitch was very competitive. The customer service and support line was extremely helpful. The hitch is very easy to put in and take out of the truck. It is also very easy to hook up to my fifth wheel. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a hitch to purchase one like this because it’s easy to use and works great. They also followed up several weeks after I had it installed to make sure I had no issues and everything was working as it should. Great customer service.

This Trailer Hitch looks awesome. I really like the fact that if the jaws do not open when the handle is pulled back moving the vehicle slightly will open the jaws. My old CURT hitch (also a good hitch) jaws would not open if on uneven ground or with tension on the jaws. Also, the two part design HAS SAVE MY BACK! I do not like to readily admit this, but I'm getting old, and my old one piece 5th wheel hitch was back breaking lifting into a bed of my Chevy 3500HD long bed.

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


Very nice and solid 5th wheel hitch. Very quiet when towing. One important comment: I have a 2019 Chevrolet Crew Cab with 6ft 6 in bed. I am towing a 2019 Grand Design Reflection 5th wheel. Dealership installed the hitch. I seem to have clearance between the cab and 5th wheel when 90 degrees from one another. The 5th wheel hitch overhang will hit the tailgate of the truck when sliding back to locking position. I think its about a 3 inch interference, Make sure you check this by lowering your tailgate before sliding into parking position.

The etrailer experts are a great resource. I requested information on what hitch would be best for my truck and situation. With the advice of an expert I felt confident in making this purchase and I am confident that this hitch will serve me well.

Excellent hitch only complaint I have is when you need to slide it sometimes you have to put something on the lever to get it to stay back until it moves but then it locks right in.

Ask the Experts about this B and W Accessories and Parts

  • Can I Purchase the Mounting Brackets Separately from the Base Rails
    We do sell the mounting brackets like # BWRVR2505 separate from the base rails. Please note that this is a custom-fit part so it is make/model/year specific. It is designed to fit the 2020 Chevrolet and GMC 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty long and short bed trucks without the OEM prep package. Also be aware that these brackets are designed to work with base rails # BWRVR3210. We do not recommend mixing bracket and rail manufacturers--both elements should always come from the same manufacturer.
