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.

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.

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!!!!!!!

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.

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.

after trying 3 other hitches the bw 25k is far the best hitch i have ever owned, from hooking up and releasing the coach. the hitch has no back and forth movement or up and down slop, this is by far the most superior hitch i have seen on the market. ( thats my opinion ) it got rid of all the noise chucking movement i had, easy to install took about 20 minutes. etrailer very easy to deal with and helpful. 5 stars

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!

I ordered the B&W 5th wheel hitch. It fits like a glove, and does exactly what they say it will do. Install time was minimal and easy. I will definitely recommend this anyone who needs this type of hitch.

Best quality I’ve seen. I did replace it with a Curt due to the fact I hitch an unhitch too often. You have to pin the B&W open to unhook. The pin is near the middle of the hitch so it’s a long reach over the dually fender. The Curt, you just pull the handle and drive out and then it’s ready to hitch again. Much easier. Just my preference and nothing against the B&W.

Will do, got it installed in 1/2hr. Put the pillars angled to the rear on 2nd setting. Hooked up to the 5th wheel and it works flawlessly. We are going to tow it 300 miles round trip this weekend going camping and I will let you know how she does. Far as install and quality it is A1 professional grade stuff. I will do your review after this weekend.

Hitch arrived great. Assembly is simple. Simple that is until you get the the leveling kit. This is my second B&W hitch and the goofy leveling kit needs to be rethought. Despite my measuring to get it perfect according to the directions and in the position the diagram indicated - it bound up when the top coupler was lowered onto it. Thirty minutes later I was able to get the top off (without causing any damage to anything). Another hour of off and on and adjusting to get it fitted in a way where it will work. Otherwise, all good. Small aggravation for me to work though - the B&W Companion is still the best hitch out there as far as I am concerned.

We enjoy this hitch. The operation is smooth and always dependable. It is amazing to look thru the rear view mirror and see the constant movement with the hitch. The movement gives us a better ride. No regrets for selecting the B&W E Trailer Hitch. The ETRAILER support is great.

The product seems to be excellent and I look forward to actually using it next weekend. The only issue I have is with the packaging. Both boxes were falling apart when UPS dropped them off at my house. The smaller box with the head actually did fall apart when I started to pick it up. The hitch was all there but packaging really needs work!!!

Assembled and installed the B&W 25k hitch and it looks amazing! Haven’t towed with it yet, but I’m sure it’ll be amazing as B&W always makes great hitches! One thing I wished B&W would annotate in their assembly instructions is the torque specs of the arm bolts, but that was easy to find online. On my 2018 F-350 long bed DRW I installed the arms to the max height at 18” and forward of the axle 3”. With that set up I’ll have to hook up and see if the fiver sits level and will clear the bed rails. I do like the ease of the lock jaw handle as it opens and closes with ease and the entire assembly and disassembly is pretty easy and quick, rather than my old previous Husky 26.5k sliding hitch that was outfitted for my previous 2014 F-250 SRW 6.5’ bed.

One year out from purchasing this hitch, and it has performed flawlessly. My only issue is that this is in our DRW F350 and I'm too short to be able to reach over and unlatch without stepping on the tires and hoisting myself up over the side of the truck bed. Awesome hitch!

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).

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.

  • Where to Measure When Picking Out Fifth Wheel Trailer Height
    Did you take this measurement from the bottom of the king pin or the bottom of the king pin plate? If you took the measurement from the bottom of the king pin and not the plate that would explain the height difference issue you are having. The part # BWRVK3305 is adjustable from 16-3/4 - 18-3/4 inches.

  • 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...

  • Locking Pins for B&W Companion Puck Latches And Coupler Pins
    For your Companion 5th wheel hitch # BWRVK3305 with a 3/8 inch hole, I recommend the Master Lock Python Adjustable Cable Lock - 6' Cable # 8428DPS. The cable lock can be run through the same locations on both sides and attaches to itself. A padlock is another option you have with the Atwood AMPlock Padlock # AT89018. Included are video resources for both solutions.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.
