Quiet, Secure Ride

The 1" thick jaw on the Companion OEM 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.


B&W Companion Bushings

In addition to the sturdy jaw, the Companion 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 a 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 Companion OEM 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".


Installation of the B&W Companion OEM

To install the Companion OEM, first set up the Companion's pivot arms. The arms are what allow the hitch to 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.


Companion OEM Base Diagram

To adjust either the height of the hitch 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.


B&W Companion OEM Handles OpenB&W Companion OEM Handles Closed

Then, when the hitch head is fully assembled, simply place the hitch in the bed of your truck, lining the base up with the receiver sockets in the bed. Rotate all 4 handles on the hitch base out so that the built-in puck receivers are in the correct position to install in the sockets. Once the base is lined up, fold the handles in until they are in the locked position and secure them with the included pins.


The hitch head installs on top of the pivot arms. When you have the head in position, simply secure it to the arms with the included pins.

2019 Ford F-450 Super Duty

Just installed my new B&W Companion 25k 5th wheel hitch into my 2019 F450. Hitch was incredibly easy to install with all the etrailer videos and supplied instructions. The hitch seems well built with high quality materials. It’s easy to adjust (height) and easy to couple the trailer. This is my second 5th wheel hitch I’ve owned and a definite upgrade! etrailer made the process painless with their awesome reviews and videos. Shipping was fast and free.

We have used our 5th wheel quit a bit in the past year. Our BW hitch still works great and looks brand new.

I love this B&W 5th wheel hitch. I also have a B&W trailer hitch. Both are well built and look good too. Win/Win

We upgraded our truck and wanted to go from a sliding hitch for a short bed to a fixed hitch for our new truck. The B&W Companion was recommended to us but it was etrailer that sealed the deal. The information they provide on their website was exactly what we had been told. We ordered it and it was delivered in less than a week. This hitch is sturdy, reliable and easy to use. So glad we went with it!

The Hitch is preforming flawlessly, it is as far as we are concerned THE best hitch on the market, strong sure latching, very well constructed and build in the heartland. There is little or no chucking from the fifth wheel, and if we didn't look in the mirror once in a while, we wouldn't know there was 38 foot of fifth wheel following us. We have towed approximately 5000 miles went to Yellowstone, Arkansas, Texas, with NO issues. Fantastic product. This year will see another 5 to 7000 miles. We previously had a RVK3500 companion that we towed a 38' fifth wheel 30K plus miles. This 3305 is preforming on the same excellent scale of our old hitch. Thank you etrailer great people, great product.

Great transaction. Item arrived when promised. No damage, and all packaging intact. The hitch is the best I have ever run across. Was unpacked and mounted in truck in about an hour. Great directions. High quality fit and finish, and very heavy duty. Have not had a chance to hook up my toyhauler yet, but really looking forward to it!! Thanks etrailer!!!!!!!

Awesome product and very easy to assemble. Unit fit right into my F350 puck system with only minor adjustments to the clamp nuts. Very well made and outstanding ride with 44ft fifth wheel. The floating head on the unit allows for all the shock to go thru the unit and not into the truck. Only thing I would add is in the directions of assembly, add the little spring that clamps on the frame of the unit to keep the fifth wheel plate in the up position, took forever thru google to see a picture of it on a unit to know where it went. But I love the product. Highly recommended F350 with Grand Design 381M fifth wheel


Comments
Awesome product. Makes the trailer ride smooth . I use it fir both my camper and my goosenecks hauling heavy equipment. Takes all the slack and sway out of the trailer to the truck.

I think the hitch and packing/shipping material were very nice and arrived all together and all pieces were there. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was because of a change in delivery date. When I initially ordered, I was given a date. I used that date to coordinate pick up of my fifth wheel. The day before that date, the date changed. I called to ask why. I was told that although the hitch was in stock, the man power was not there to physically stock the hitch. It would be an additional week and a half. etrailer did the best that they could and cut the new date down to three more additional days. Not upset as that seems to be the norm in 2021. Just had to re arrange the calendar to go get fifth wheel. In hindsight I probably could have given more time but you know how us Americans are with our instant gratification. But all in all, it was a great experience.

I have had 3 fifth wheel hitches and the B&W is the best. It’s very well made. It maintains a precision fit and is very solid. This hitch may cost a bit more but it is certainly worth it.

I've owned this hitch for one year and it has performed flawlessly. It's a solid hitch and works as designed. The etrailer videos on maintenance are extremely helpful and I recommend viewing them to stay current on the schedule to keep this critical piece of machinery working as designed. I would buy it again,

Exactly what I needed for my new truck. The Hitch arrived in a timely manner. Easily assembled. Miner issue with on of the cams as it is quite tight so it has to be beat into place, but doable and I don't plan on removing very often. Tight tolerance on the King Pin cam so we have to get use to a more precise hook-up procedure. Overall I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

Fast, free shipping. A great experience. Installed in a 2018 Ford F350 Limited crew cab dually 4x4 with the factory puck system. I first installed a Rough Country bed mat/and used a 3.25” hole saw to cut around the pucks. Looks great, hitches and unhitches easily, and feels much more solid than the superglide I had in my last truck (which was a short bed).

Have yet to tow with my hitch but install was relatively easy. Hardest part was getting the two boxes into the bed of the F350. I used UPS labor, I asked and the delivery guy said sure he would help. Beyond that installing the spring clip for the leveler was a little challenge. Directions where clear and easily understood. Installed in a little over an hour. Will submit a follow up after my 5th wheel delivers.


Comments
Have multiple trips under my belt now, over 3000 miles on my 18,000 lb 5th wheel. Works great. Smooth ride, coupled with LCI Air Ride. This is my 1st and last hitch.

Great instructions. Easy to install. The video tutorials on product reviews, installation instructions, etc. on etrailer.com have helped me do research and to choose the right product for my needs. This is the second B&W Companion hitch I have used to pull a 16,000lb GVWR 5th wheel trailer. The first was the companion to the turnover ball hitch, and this one is companion to the Ford OEM gooseneck prep system (puck connect). Just finished pulling our trailer home from the RV dealer. Worked great!!!! Lastly, the ordering process, shipment tracking and overall communication with etrailer staff is fantastic.

    For your 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty Long Bed (8 foot) we have several options of fifth wheel trailer hitches. My favorite is the B & W fifth wheel hitch. They have a really nice finish to them that looks good in any truck, and the powder coat is very durable, so it resists scratches pretty well.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Setup For 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty With Factory Tow Prep
    I recommend B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch part # BWRVK3305 for the 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty prep package.

  • How to Position B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Pivot Arms to Install on 2017 Ford F-350 Long Bed
    Since you have an 8 foot bed, either way you set up your B&W # BWRVK3305 Companion pivot arms could be attached in either orientation. I'd recommend the forward position, which will distribute a bit more weight to the front truck axle. This helps make the truck's handling more stable. If you don't already have a 7-way trailer connector installed in the bed, you can install one using # 20110-010. I've linked you to a video showing the installation of the wiring harness.

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Factory Prep System
    The very best hitch for the Ford Factory Prep Package in my opinion is the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package - 25,000 lbs # BWRVK3305. This hitch fits directly into the factory pucks for a very clean and custom fit. The base can be installed independent of the head for an easier transition in and out of your truck and the 1 inch thick dual jaws give you the best king pin contact for less jarring and chucking when towing. The cam action latching handle...

  • Recommended Height and Fore/Aft Setup of B&W BWRVK3305 Companion on 2017 Ford F350 Dually
    When adjusting the arms of the # BWRVK3305, you have the option of setting up so the king pin will sit 3 inches forward or 1 inch forward of the axle. I'd set it up at the tallest height, 18-3/4 inches above the floor of the truck bed and 1 inch forward so the pin weight is almost centered over the rear axle. You can actually perfectly dial in the height if you're willing to do a little measuring. Put your 5th wheel up on the landing gear so that it's as close to level as you can get...

  • Which Arm/Height Position for B and W Companion Hitch is Good Starting Point
    I attached a picture that has all of the available positions you can use for varying heights with the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3305. It's best to measure first to determine which height you'd need, but if not then I'd go with the medium height position with the arms fursthest from the cab for a position that will be the most likely to fit the best.

  • How to Determine if Reese Elite RE25 Will Fit with 2019 Ford F-350 with Higher Bed Side Walls
    The OEM puck locations are the same for both your 2011 Ford F-450 and your 2019 Ford F-350 so the Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitch 30143 will definitely fit in your newer pickup. Recently pickups have tended to have higher side walls for the bed so you will want to make sure that the walls are no taller than 22" as you need at least 5" of clearance for your 5th wheel trailer and your 5th wheel hitch has a max height adjustment of 17". Please note that you may need to adjust the height...

    The best fifth wheel hitch for the factory rail kit of your 2020 Ford F-350 is the B&W Companion hitch # BWRVK3305 which is made here in the USA.
