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.

My fifth wheel hitch is working great Pull a 39 foot fifth wheel with a trailer behind it

The hitch works very well, the only thing I didn't like is one of the handles for the headpiece is welded a little off. It's like this is a factory second. You can see that the one is not parallel.

You mentioned that it seemed like the handles were welded a little off. I reached out to B and W, who advised that this is something that can occur during shipping. The best solution at this point would be to use a rubber mallet to make the handles level

I love that it came in 2 pieces. Only pulled my Trailer one time so far. I do plan on going on a 2 month RV trip very soon. My son and I installed it. Just measure your 5th wheel trailer height.

Weve been living full time RV for a week shy of 2 years now. Pulled through 24 states and this hitch has been working great. I would definitely buy another one if needed.

I purchased this hitch to connect to the Chevy factory prepped 5th Wheel kit for a new 2017 Chev Silverado 3500 dually. My previous truck/ hitch combo (2015 Chev Silverado 3500 single axle 6.5’ bed w/ Reese Pro Series) used industry standard rails and there was quite a bit of movement in the entire hitch assembly and king pin area resulting in significant chucking on the horrible So. Cal. freeways. The B&W hitch was one of two recommended by the professionals at etrailer. I could not be happier. The hook-up is very easy & the overall operation of the hitch is much easier & simpler than my previous hitch. The 1” thick jaw makes a secure connection to the kingpin and the overall ride has smoothed out significantly. Great product so well liked that my son found a used one for sale and snapped it up for his rig.

After 6 months to a year finding a hitch, I decided to purchase the B&W. I reviewed several, talked to fifth wheel owners on what hitch they had, and the majority recommended the B&W. From it's easy to install and remove (if needed), how the hitch is built, It's heavy duty and looks like it's a hitch and rated for the 20k pounds compared to others out there on the market today, great customer service from both B&W and etrailer, I went with it for that reason. Now, after a year of use and 2 dozen pulls or so with it, no complaints. Had to make a small adjustment to it, to stop the "porpoising" affect, and after that, I have a nice smooth ride while towing our Montana 3700LK.

I installed the hitch in my 2018 Chevy 3500HD DRW last night took around an hour. overall the quality is very good on the B&W Companion hitch and it fits into the factory puck system perfect. I have it set on the highest setting but still have to hook up 5th wheel to see if this is correct position or not to give me the correct clearance. Looking forward to trying it out this weekend. The package arrived on time and no damage.

2017 GMC Sierra 3500

I am very happy with the B&W companion for my GMC with the OEM puck system. It was easy to install and is going to work great on my truck. I was worried about clearance with my bakflip bedcover on my 6.5 bed but it all worked out great.

The photos, videos and Q & A really helped me make good decision so etrailer is going to continue to get my busness.

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Great Hitch, secure latching and quiet on the road. (No Chucking, unlike the bolt on hitch in my last truck). It is relatively easy to remove and re-install - I'm 67!
I have a small problem Unhitching when there is any pressure between vehicles, the jaws will not let loose unless holding the release lever open as I pull away.

Outstanding customer service/support coupled with a great product at a great price...what more can you ask for? My hitch arrived with superb packaging and simple to follow instructions. Being super meticulous, I installed my hitch in a couple of hours. The Companion's design works fantastic with the OEM puck system in my new 2017 Silverado 3500HD Dually! Really looking forward to hooking up my new 5th wheel and hitting the road! If you are in the market for a new hitch, definitely consider the Made In America B&W Companion 3700 5th wheel hitch!



by:

This hitch is very well designed and sturdy. I have owned 5 or 6 fifth wheel hitches over the last 30 years and this one is the best one. The most significant aspects are the relatively quiet ride and easy hitching and unhitching. The hitch release lever works very easily but my one complaint would be that it is a long reach to fully open the hitch release lever. I installed a step on the side of the box to solve that problem.

We have towed our trailer over 12,000 miles and the hitch continues to work flawlessly.

Purchased this per recommendation from Jared. This thing was a direct bolt in for my truck as he said it would be. Took me less than an hour to assemble and install. This hitch is incredibly heavy duty for my purposes of towing my new 5th wheel trailer. This thing is going to be instrumental over the next few years for me. Even took a picture with it looking good in my truck!

Arrived in just a few days, hardware package was short 1 nut,but we had one. Instructions were helpful. Very satisfied.

I have a 2018 GMC 3500 6 1/2 foot bed with the factory fifth wheel prep package. I just bought this fifth wheel hitch and towed with it once but it fits perfectly and tows beautifully, is very well built and is USA made. MAGA!! I have it set over the axle and have plenty of clearance because of the tapered front cap on my trailer. No bucking of jerking like the Reese titan hitch I previously had although it was on a slider. Awesome hitch don't hesitate to buy it.



by:

I’m excited to tow with my new B&W hitch. Fits perfectly and assembly was a breeze. I like the amount of adjustment both vertically and horizontally. Locking the hitch to the frame with the puck system is great! Item shipped quickly and was packaged well! I’ll be ordering more products from etrailer!



by:

I received my new B&W Companion Hitch Assembly and installed it on my new Truck.
Perfect fit, and very easy to install.
Plenty of clearance for my bed cover, so I can leave my hitch in place, when not in use.
I appreciate the help from you guys in answering all of my questions, very helpful.
I look forward to using my new hitch shortly.
Thanks.



by:

This is the third B&W fifth wheel hitch I have owned. By far the best hitch available. E trailer is a great supplier. Super fast delivery.



by:

Every item needed to install my hitch was with the hitch when it was received. With the help of my son it only took about 30 minutes to install. My experience in using this hitch both hooking and unhooking is outstanding and very easy even with a air ride pin box.

I like it !!

Cant ask for anything better. Install and removes with ease hitching up and unhitching is great and tows like a dream. If your on the fence about what hitch to buy. This is the one



by:

Bought this hitch after comparing different ones for GM's new puck system.
Ordered on Sunday, received on Wednesday, installed same night. This is a very well built American made hitch. I am confident I will have years of trouble free towing my 27ft Toy hauler.



by:

I ordered a B&W companion 5th wheel hitch from etrailer. I am very happy with the service I received. Will be shopping at etrailer in the future when I need trailer or towing parts in the future.

Fits the puck system in our 2019 GMC Denali 3500 perfectly. Extremely well-made! Virtually no "chucking". Would like the hitch plate leveling spring to be a little stiffer.

I received the fifth wheel hitch in just a few days super fast shipping. Everything was packaged really nice,no damage at all to the product.



by:

I’m not very technical savvy & couldn’t find exactly what I needed on the website so I called etrailer.com and I have to say they have the best costumer service I’ve ever dealt with! The lady I spoke with was very patient and made sure I got exactly what I wanted and she was even able to save me close to $200.00 of what I expected to pay. They went above and beyond by her calling me back when she found exactly what I wanted and then again after delivery! I’m very happy with the hitch and even more happy with Etrailer.com!!



by:

Awesome, trouble free hitch. I really can’t see any way to improve it. I would not consider any other hitch or buying from anyone but etrailer!
