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.

First and foremost, I received outstanding customer service from Cailee. I had a short time frame to deal with. The first parts that I ordered (Curt 16029) were back ordered Cailee called Curt to see if we could get fast delivery, they said yes, the following day Cailee called me back and told me that Curt now could not meet the delivery date. So I cancelled that order and ordered the BWRVk3710. I had that delivered to the location I would be in a few days. The hitch arrived on time and every thing turned out just fine. Cailee did a great job of following up to assure that my needs were met and the product was fine, It was and I am a very satisfied customer and the product works just fine and meets all of my needs. 766841

After a lot of research I still had many questions about which hitch to install in my new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 single rear wheel with a standard (6 3/4') bed and the factory puck system. Did I need a slider as everyone suggested or would I be fine with a fixed hitch and save some weight and money in the process. I called B&W Hitches to find the exact location of the king pin receiver compared to the gooseneck opening in the truck bed so I could take an exact measurement. They were eager to assist but I couldn't get an exact number. I then called etrailer and they were extremely patient and even put on hold a couple times to try to get solid answers to my questions. Both places said the fixed hitch may work but recommended the slider. I decided to go with the fixed base hitch and in my situation I'm very happy that I did. The hitch arrived in two days in two boxes and was in great shape. I spent about 1 1/2 hours installing it and all went well. Each piece was easily handled by myself. Now for the number I could not find anywhere. With the 3710 hitch mounted in the rear most position the measurement from the center of the kingpin to the back window in my truck is 45 in. My camper is exactly 96" wide (radius 48" from kingpin center to trailer side) and the front is heavily radiused which will not allow for an absolute 90° jackknife but it comes pretty close. if your trailer nose isn't radiused or the kingpin sets back further you will not have the turning radius that I do. this fixed base hitch will not work for everybody but in my situation it did. I haven't road tested it yet but I expect that to go very well. Both B&W hitches and etrailer were extremely helpful and very professional. Hope my pictures help. 756882

Delivered in two days. Packaging on base was pretty beat up but product survived the journey. Base assembled nicely with perfect alignment and perfect fit into 2020 GM prep fittings. It was a little difficult to hammer spring bracket onto plate A. One fitting lever makes contact with a weld and caused it to not line up with lock pin hole so I reformed the pin hole bracket to lock it in. I might someday. Grind that weld down but hate to expose bare metal without good paint to touch up. Coupler came in good shape and fully assembled except for handle. Instructions are good, US fasteners are nice. Can’t wait to tow and make any adjustments to height. 765605

I could not ask for anything more from etrailer. Service was EXCELLANT! The box was damaged and paint rough but this was from UPS. Put hitch together and could not get the head on the pivots. Called B & W and talked with real nice women and told her the problem and with in a min. of being on hold she said they would send me out another hitch. I thanked the women and was glad I was dealing with a US co. and with someone I could understand. Yes I was a little unhappy but things do happen. I don't know what more could be ask of a Co. 756516

Review from a similar Companion in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I've had this for about a year. Only have about 2,000 miles of use with a 13,000 lbs 5th wheel travel trailer. It is still like new. Jaws are tight, no rattles with or without the trailer attached. I use a nylon guide plate, to keep things clean. The only issue is the slider will not unlatch from the locked position with the trailer attached. Unlatch and slides fine when not loaded. Just haven't made the time to talk to B&W about this. The base is a heavy bugger, and fits snug in the receptical. I've lifted it in and out myself, but not a smart idea. Overall I would buy again. For our use, where we need the whole bed the majority of time it is an easy solution. 608616


Comments
Youll want to make sure that the slider rails are lubricated. Also keep in mind that if the truck and trailer are at different angles and theres a lot of pressure placed on the sliding mechanism, it can bind.

Comments
A year later, and it still works the same. Slider still doesnt work. but havent needed it. One thing I have learned is to make sure the lug from the attachment is lubricated before placed into the receiver. After about 8 months of being in the bed, I tried to remove it. Whoah! That was a son of a gun. Finally got it to break free, and then it lifted out. both the lug of the companion hitch, and the receiver of the B&W are nicely powder coated. that powder coating locked together. Nothing patience and a pry bar couldnt fix. But I dont want a repeat. Over all, I may look at something easier for our next travel season.

Review from a similar Companion in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Awesome hitch! The sliding features works well with my short bed 2017 F 350. I only slide it back when I make really sharp turns. The powder coat, coupled with a rubber pad preserves the hitch from rusting. It is heavy and requires a buddy to help drop it in place, but still very easy to assemble. This hitch easily tilts forward, backwards, and side to side to help with those tough camp sites. 794007

Review from a similar Companion in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I received the new Companion hitch for my F350 in two separate boxes. The shipping company was very thorough in providing updates. Regarding the Companion hitch...I was a bit nervous purchasing online without seeing one, but very happy with fit, function and quality of product. Puck system fit perfectly and only required a very minor adjustment to one puck! The only design change I would make (and I already completed) would be to make holes for puck levers large enough for a padlock. Other than this modification, this is a great design and the entire purchase process was perfect. 612859


Comments
Hitch is working as it was designed. I have used the sliding function a few times and it is a bit clunky. Would like to see cushions on both ends of slider to reduce hard stops when seating either in position.

Review from a similar Companion in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I bought this model to replace a Companion single-point attachment unit. I haven’t pulled my RV with it yet , but expect the same great experience as the previous model. Installation was straightforward and instructions were easy to follow. Hardest part was lifting the base into the truck bed, which was made easier by using an engine hoist. I love that the B&W products are made in the U.S.A. 772198

The 25k version part # BWRVK3715 would also perform just as well but since it has more capacity than you'd need and also because of that costs more I don't feel like it's your best value. I'd only go this route if you had plans to upgrade to a heavier 5th wheel at some point.

    For the 2020 models of the GMC and Chevy factory rail kits GM made a few changes to the OEM rail kit dimension so the hitch fits had to change. But the good news is that you don't have to buy an all new hitch. You can reuse the head of your current hitch and just get a new base to fit the truck with part # BWRVB3715. You might consider selling your current hitch complete as that might be easier to sell than just the base and then go with the new hitch # BWRVK3715 and you'd be ready to tow.

  • Comparing B&W Companion for OEM Puck vs B&W Gooseneck for 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500 Short Bed
    If you're looking for the easiest option to move around (since you plan on using your 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500 to gooseneck tow) then I recommend going with the OEM puck system and using the Companion # BWRVK3710 because it is roughly 50 lbs lighter than the Companion # BWRVK3500 that would be installed in the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1020. To tow a gooseneck trailer with the OEM puck system I recommend the B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit # BWGNXA2061 as it is the nicest...

  • B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch For 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500 OEM Prep Package

If you have the 6-1/2 ft bed and the shape of the nose of your trailer allows for enough clearance to use a fixed hitch, you will not have any issues using the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package part # BWRVK3710...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500 to Prevent Binding
    For a fifth wheel hitch that fits the OEM pucks of the 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500 that won't bind, I recommend the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3710 for the 20,000 lb capacity or part # BWRVK3715 for the 25,000 capacity. The Companion will drop down into the puck system and lock in with a simple lever latch system. The handle has a mechanism that allows you to unhook even on unlevel terrain without binding unlike other fifth wheels that can be difficult to open the jaw when unhooking the...

  • Is Lube Plate Needed When Using Pivoting Pin Box Like MorRyde Orbital Pin Box
    You don't use lube plates with pivoting pin boxes like the MorRyde Orbital that you have. Since the hitch and the pin box move together and do not rub against each other when the vehicle makes a turn the hitch won't get the same type of wear that you are worried about. This is because the pin box pivots instead.

  • Picking Head Position of B and W Companion Hitch for 2020 Chevy Silverado with OEM Rail Kit
    Start with having the jaw centered over the rear axle of your B and W Companion Hitch for GM rail kits part # BWRVK3710. Unless your trailer has a really wide nose and a non-extended pin box I wouldn't foresee needing the extra 2 inches of clearance. But if clearance does seem tight you can go ahead and use the offset.
