Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Are willing to pay a little more for the all-American craftsmanship that B&W is known for - this hitch is easy to use and looks good for years
  • Take the time to make sure you hitch is in the optimal spot and like having adjustments not only for the height but also forward and back
  • Haul with a RAM truck that has high side rails - this hitch sits a little taller than similar options

No, if you:

  • Use your truck bed often to haul other things while you tow your fifth wheel and need something less bulky
  • Drive over very rough roads and want a little more shock absorbing hitch to soften the ride

Quiet, Secure Ride

The 3/4" thick jaw on the Patriot is precision machined to provide a tight, sturdy connection. And unlike slide-bar models, the rounded 2-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hookup and a safer, quieter ride.


In addition to the sturdy jaw, the Patriot has durable polyurethane bushings built in to provide a smoother, more comfortable towing experience. These bushings sit on top of the pivot arms that support the fifth-wheel head. Because the head is resting on padded area, it is able to pivot without clanking. The ability of the head to pivot - both front to back and side to side - along with the trailer also helps to limit the chucking that may occur with a more static hitch.


Non-Binding Latch Handle

The dual jaw on the Patriot is operated by a simple-to-use cam-action handle. This handle allows you to quickly and easily release the jaws on the hitch, even if you are on uneven terrain. If any binding does occur between your truck and trailer, the jaws may remain closed after you move the handle to the open position. But because the handle is unlatched, there is nothing keeping the jaws closed except for the binding pressure. Therefore, simply driving your truck forward will be enough to force the jaws to open.


The cam-action handle is held in the closed position with the included pin and clip. For extra security, you can replace the pin with a sturdy padlock. The shackle on the lock you choose should have a diameter of 5/16", height of 3", and a width of 2-1/4".


Easily Adjustable Design

The B&W Patriot can be adjusted front to back as well as up and down for optimal positioning. As a result, this hitch can accommodate the height of your trailer and also help to give you the cab clearance needed to execute turns while towing.


Patriot Hitch Arm Positioning Diagram

To adjust either the height of the Patriot or the fore/aft positioning, just attach the hitch's pivot arms in the desired location on the base. The above diagram gives an indication of where to mount the arms so that you get the height and the cab clearance that you need.

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (291 Customer Reviews)

The dual jaw on this 5th-wheel hitch offers a secure connection with 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact. Durable polyurethane bushings limit rattle and vibration. Base adjusts for ideal vertical and fore/aft positioning. Rails sold separately.

by:

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.




by:

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




by:

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.




by:

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




by:

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.
David - 03/07/2022


by:

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.




by:

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.
Frank P - 02/02/2022


by:

Very easy to use and miles above my old hitch. Works as advertised. Highly recommend. Was easy to install and adjustable options ( height and location on bed) provides solutions for various equipment needs. A must have.

Still functioning as expected. Made several long trips and was great. Five stars

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.
Robert - 05/04/2022


by:

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.




by:

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




by:

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.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 12/30/2021


by:

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!




by:

Remarkable product! Has to be the easiest one to use on the market. Provides a solid connection between truck and trailer with very limited chucking. The service from E-Trailer is amazing, which is why I buy all trailer products from here.




by:

CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS GREAT! PLACED ORDER WITH ETRAILER & HITCH ARRIVED 3 DAYS LATER. THIS HITCH WILL REPLACE A ONE-PIECE HITCH THAT WEIGHS ABOUT 130 POUNDS. THE B & W PATRIOT HITCH HAS A BASE AND REMOVABLE HEAD WHICH MAKES IT EASY TO TAKE IN AND OUT OF TRUCK BED.




by:

We really enjoy the peace of mind this hitch provides. It is secure both in the truck and hitched to our 5th wheel. As it is heavy to install and remove so that we can use our truck when not towing, we installed a hydraulic lift in our garage to lift it out and onto a cart we push to the side for storage until next time. The lift puts it back up into the truck. It's so easy to have this sturdy hitch!




by:

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.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 11/02/2021


by:

We had a chance to use the 5th wheel hitch, we love it, it's 2000 pounds more weight rating, than are old 1




by:

Very pleased with my purchase of the Patriot 18k fifth wheel. It arrived on the day promised. Assembly and installation was simple. Product looks great.




by:

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!




by:

B&W quality is hard to beat. AN excellent constructed and crafted hitch.




by:

Product is well built and painted, spent 10 months with it about a block from the gulf of Mexico in the bed of my truck 24/7 and the paint hasn't faded, no parts have rusted or anything. Very impressed with build and paint quality. It also pulls smoother, and dampens a lot more than my Reese 5er did on rough roads. The Reese also began rusting and paint flaking 3 months after purchase and spent it's time in Oklahoma where the weather wasn't too harsh in comparison to the ocean air the B&W experienced in Texas. 10/10 B&W.




by:

Received original hitch damaged due to shipping company and they re-boxed and left on my door step. Called e trailer and they sent out a replacement immediately. This time in original package and completely undamaged. Great customer service!




by:

Excellent product and excellent service




by:

Excellent product at a great price. Heavy duty, easy to assemble, and install. Very happy with this hitch.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for Short Bed Truck That Doesn't Need Slider Hitch Clearance
    The Blue Ox Patriot hitch part # BWRVK3255 that you referenced would be a great solution for what you need. Since you haven't really needed the slider mechanism in the past the offset that the head of the hitch allows would be enough to prevent turning clearance issues. Also this hitch has a really great jaw design so it will hold the king pin of the trailer very tightly. This translates in a very quiet and smooth ride quality unlike your current slider hitch.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch that Uses Rails From a RBW Lil' Rocker

    It's actually the fifth wheel hitch that makes the biggest impact on chucking when fifth wheel towing.

For a fifth wheel hitch that is known to be very smooth and quiet the B and W Patriot part # BWRVK3255 would be a great option as it has a very tight jaw design as well as cushioning built into the head as well.

The good news is that you can now sell your Companion hitch as a complete hitch which would be easier than just the base of the hitch.
