Quiet, Secure Ride

B&W Companion OEM Ram Jaw

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 OEM Ram 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.

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.

B&W Companion OEM Ram Feet

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.

This hitch is a Beast! UPS did it no favors on delivery and I fully expected damage when I saw that box but not even a scratch in the paint. It went together without any problems and fits my Ram 3500 8 foot box perfectly. I did have to adjust the legs but it was not to hard. If I didn’t have an impact wrench to loosen the bolts It may have been a bit harder but no complaints. Looks great and can’t wait to get a 5th wheel on it. It came to house very quickly also so kudos to etrailer and their shipping department. I love that it is American made. Fantastic quality! 560642

2015 Ram 2500

All though this hitch is not light (which I knew it would be beefy), it was really simple to install. In all it took about 4 hours to assemble and complete. I am not an novice to assembling heavy and intricate machinery. Reading the instructions completely is a must before starting any process. It looks and works great. The puck system makes it easier to install. And removing the 5th wheel when it is not in use just takes removing two keeper pins and lifting on the release handles. It did take longer to receive the hitch after I ordered it (about a eight days). 183013

Fantastic! Works as designed and keeps my rig straight down the highway lane. Great product.

2015 Ram 2500

Big and heavy . Took 4 of us to install it. Think I got the side support placement right. Will have to wait till I hook up too see. One complaint and the mfg. should do something about it. The handle can be reached from the side but not the locking pin. I'm going to have to figure out a way to lock it as at my age It is now a problem. Will come up with something that can be done from the side. 229735

On that issue I recommend a step you can leave in bed to pull out and step up to secure lock. Thats my plan for now.

One of the folding wheel mounted steps might do the job.

One further comment. The jaws as seen from the back when closed should be painted yellow. Then it could easily be noted that they are closed.

2018 Ram 3500

Received my B*W Companion 3600 hitch today through UPS, it arrived in three boxes, one box had the base unit for my 2018 Ram 3500 puck system, one box had the two side pivot arms and the bolt kit package for the coupler head unit and the third box contained the coupler head unit. All the boxes arrived in good condition, many of the reviews that I read said the boxes were destroyed upon arrival and I was relieved that the hitch and boxes arrived in perfect condition. After watching a Youtube video from Big Truck Big RV "JD" (on the companion hitch) who is a partner of etrailer I decided to purchase from etrailer vs other suppliers due to the reviews and video that etrailer is the best to buy from and they are available to answer and assist if needed. It took me about 30 to 40 minutes to unbox, assemble and install the hitch, very easy to do. I mounted the side pivot arms directly center over the rear axle and at its lowest setting 17". This companion hitch is replacing a Demco slider hitch that I Purchased in Feb of 2019 (totally dissapointed in the Demco from day one hence already replaced). I have not towed with the companion hitch yet as it arrived today, I will update my review once I have some time on the hitch pulling my 38' triple axle 18,000lb 5er, I have a upcoming trip and looking forward to testing the companion hitch. So far I am impressed with the quality and it looks great too, the paint on the hitch appears to be very good quality and there are no bare spots, all the welds look of high quality. Sa far I give it 5 stars. 679455

I have not used my 5th wheel hitch as of late 2020. My deal feel through but with the virus i have no plans to go anywhere. HOWEVER! if when you put yours together and the pucks don't match, (ours did not) the holes in the bed of your truck, save yourself some time and just loosen three corners.wiggle the handles until the unit sets itself down in the pucks. then follow instructions on tightening up and torque the bolts to specs. This unit is heavy and very strong looking. i am sure it will do the job when i get my 5th wheel. MY RATING IS BASED ON LOOKS NOT PERFORMANCE 908847

It took a while to get it but now that it’s in the back of my truck I’m very happy already pulled my 40 foot toy hauler with it and I’m very very very happy. I had installed a rubber bed mat that I wanted to keep so I measured off the holes for the puck system,purchased a holesaw And cut away these pictures show the results. 901413

It’s B&W need I say more. Solid well built hitch. Took longer than I had anticipated to get this hitch. No fault of etrailer’s as B&W had supply issues. Was worth the wait! Thanks 901192

We have had the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch for one year and use it to pull our 20,000 lbs. toyhauler with our Ram 3500. The hitch still looks like it did when purchased and handles the load very well. I highly recommend the hitch for anyone pulling a large load. 893522

Love the hitch just not crazy about mechanism. It seems like it doesn’t open wide enough so worry when I’m hooking up. Not positive feed back when it unlatches 861995

- BWRVK3600

Pros: Simple to operate (once installed). I like the way the locking arm engages when you back into the kingpin. Very little (or no) chucking. Due to heavy construction, provides a bit more confidence especially towing 20K. Cons: HEAVY (and for the Ram puck version) extra large base taking up even more truck bed. Top portion is relative easy for one person to install/remove. The bottom portion is a whole new ballgame. Definitely two man operation to install bottom. Locking levers never "engaged" in exactly the way described in the literature but after calling tech support, I'm OK with it. Would give 5 stars if it wasn't so dang big and heavy :( 857805

Has performed flawlessly! Highly recomm end! 848329

Very heavy duty. Hook up and release are the easiest of any hitch I owned before. High quality construction and finish. Fits the truck perfectly. It is large and heavy, but disassembles easily. Height adjustment makes it easy to tailor to your needs. Much better than several Reese hitches I owned. 846048

I have only towed with the hitch once with my 2019 Ram 3500 but it was awesome. There was no rattling or bucking whatsoever. Installation was straightforward and I’m looking forward to the ease of taking the hitch out when I don’t need it. I am very pleased with this hitch. 802212

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for Lifted 2016 Ram 2500 With Factory Prep Package
    Those are good questions and we can definitely help you out. First, let's start with the height, and as you can see by the accompanying diagram, you will need at least 5 to 6 inches above your rails and to the underside of the loft. You also need to make sure you are towing as level as possible. Due to this, you will need a hitch that has a low height setting, and the fact that your 2016 Ram 2500 has the factory prep package (which will have pucks in the bed) is great because inches matter...

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ram 3500 with Factory Pucks
    The Demco # DM6076P-21K and the B&W Companion # BWRVK3600 are both great options, but if I had to choose one I would go with the B&W Companion # BWRVK3600 . To start, the B&W doesn't require a rail system # DM6099 like the Demco- it will mount directly into the factory puck system on your 2019 Ram 3500. This is going to allow you to have a clean truck bed when the hitch isn't installed on your truck. The B&W is also rated for up to 25000-lbs, where the Demco is a 21000-lbs hitch; so...

    There are several 5th wheel hitches that will fit the factory RAM towing prep package hole pattern. I'll list out the options we offer below along with a few recommendations. The article you found was likely an old article. RAM sort of botched the release of their OEM 5th wheel package back in 2012/2013 and they started selling trucks with the factory mounting kit before a hitch was actually designed and released. The trucks were sold for about 6 months before a hitch was actually released....

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch For 2019 Ram 3500 With Factory Prep
    I recommend to use the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package part # BWRVK3600 for the prep package in your 2019 Ram 3500 8 foot bed. The B and W Companion will drop down into the puck system of your Ram and lock in with a simple lever latch system.
