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.

I just got it installed looking forward to connecting the trailer. But, the trailer is in the shop! I spent a lot time evaluating hitches and decided on the B&W Patriot 18K. I would like to better packing for shipping, the finish on the hitch got damaged.

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


This hitch is amazing. I replaced an older Reese hitch. With my old hitch there was constant shucking and could feel the trailer pushing the truck while stopping. There is no more shucking and you can “barely tell” there’s a trailer behind me anymore. The coupling and uncoupling with the cam action lever is extremely simple!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS HITCH

Great hitch in my 2015 Ram 2500 Short Bed. I had to contact B&W due to a concern with tightening the mounting bolts. The threads in the holes are painted, B&W said to run a tap through the threads. Also I was missing a few bolts on previously installed mounting kit. B&W sent me the whole bolt kit overnight for free. Awesome American company proudly supporting their products. I highly recommend their products. Also etrailer sent this hitch to me in a timely manner at a great price. I would use etrailer again. Thank you!

I’ve had 2 Reese hitches before this b&w and this puts them to shame I absolutely love the ease of hooking and unhooking and it is totally quiet it fit my rail system perfectly

Very happy with. Heavy duty American made. My old one didn’t even pivot right to left and was sloppy/clunky. I know this is going to be amazing and save me from backing trailer into truck when turning sharp with my short bed ram 2500.

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


The B&W exceeded expectation when towing the 5th wheel. Pound for pound one of the best hitches out there. It would have been a 5 star rating, however the Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate ordered with hitch is subpar, as it does not stay on the hitch pin and customer service could not help and deferred me to Lippert.

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


Was unable to use this unit and had to return it. If you watch the current video for the Curt X5, at fifty seconds it is stated you can use a B&W fifth wheel hitch. Well you can’t use this one. Beside that, the unit was extremely well made and if I could have used it, I would have trusted it.

This unit is very user friendly and easy to use. I love the look and the color used to paint it

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


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.


Comments
Great! I have used this product all of last year and it worked very well. I do remove it when I am not using it to tow the fifth wheel trailer. I did add a small piece of silicone material between the truck bed rails and the hitch itself to prevent the paint from being chipped and scratched.The thin piece of silicone also prevents any rattling or rubbing of metal to metal components in that area.The hitch and rails still look like new. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Well designed for easy use. Heavy duty. Operates flawlessly. We decided on the B&W Patriot w/slider as we have a short-bed pickup and we carry 10' kayak's on top of the cab that extend over the bed space. The kayak's make turning with the fifth-wheel a bet more challenging and the easy to use slider option was very attractive. I am concerned with the actual hitch sits about 6 inches further back in my truck than my previous Reese Pro Series 15K slider hitch, using the same mounting rails. I've not run my truck & trailer over scales yet to determine the impact of this mounting difference. Also, the kingpin bracket is very close to my tailgate when slid back. Gonna have to watch that!

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.


Comments
Im still happy with this hitch, especially the two piece design which makes it more manageable to take in and out.

This is one of the best hitches you can buy, I have tried multiple other ones and they were all hard to get a hitch and unhitched. This one just works.

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


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.

The hitch performed as advertised. It was easy to install, fitting my current rails perfectly. It is heavy and requires a minimum of two young strong people to install it. I was very pleased with eTrailer.

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


Hitch arrived undamaged and on time. Easy to install. Can’t ask for more than that.




by:

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


So far so good. Hitch appears to be good quality. It was easy to install after installing the mounting kit. I haven't used it yet so I can't comment on how it handles when pulling a camper.

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


I ordered this hitch knowing it was back ordered. Didn’t matter. It arrived quicker than I thought. I’d rather wait for etrailer because I know it will be exactly what I ordered. Solid build. Works seamlessly.


Comments
Excellent. Recommend for anyone with a rail system.

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

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


Love this hitch, very solid! Pretty light weight, easy to get in and out when I need to use the full truck bed. Easy height adjustment to get my 5th wheel riding level when towing.

Review from a similar Patriot in Accessories and Parts


This is our third hitch and by far the best and easiest to use.
One flaw, although minor, was the attaching of the spring that returns and holds the plate level. It was very difficult to attach then after very few uses it broke off. It did not affect the usage of this hitch, bug should be redesigned or just left off. I have recommended this to others. etrailer is the best place to order one from.


Comments
I reached out to the manufacturer about the spring. They said the torsion spring is part of the head leveling kit and it keeps your coupler head from falling backwards. Ultimately, its purpose is to make hooking up your trailer easier. B&W does not want you using your hitch without this piece. I will email you more information.

  • 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.
