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.

Nice unit. I like how it dismantles so its lighter to install since I am getting too old for the 200 lb versions made by others. The arms instructions were a tad confusing but I am not sure how better to explain the different configurations. 764957

Receive my hitch in 2 days “WOW” I ordered the 3715 model and installed it in my 2020 GMC 2500 in 6-1/2 foot box in about 1-1/2 hours. Installation was a breeze. I decided to go with this fixed model instead of the recommended slider. After installation was completed It was time to confirm my measurements and going with the fixed model. Hooked up to my truck and was able to get a full 90 degrees and still had approximately 4-5 inches cab clearance ( and could have flipped the arms to get another couple inches) . Now it was time for a short test drive. WOW IS THIS HITCH QUITE. can’t say enough about this Awesome product. 808498

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

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

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


The B&W 5 th. wheel hitch is exactly what I needed for my F350 with the factory towing and hitch package. It arrived 1 day early and the free shipping made it a great deal compared with the large chain stores. It was easy to assemble and fits perfectly in my ford. I haven't towed with it yet but don't see any issues. The nice thing with the hitch for the ford is that with the turn of 4 handles, the hitch comes right out of the truck and you have a completely flat bed again. Thank you etrailer for you great service ....... 448120

I have used the B & W hitch for a year and it has performed flawlessly. Have taken two long trips and many short ones and have never been disappointed with it. It is one product that I can say I am totally pleased with it and you cant say that about too many products these days !!!!

This 5th wheel hitch works beautifully! Make sure you have the OEM puck system before ordering as I had to have a dealership install the puck system. The hitch puts together extremely easily and provides a very smooth ride. Looks clean and operates flawlessly. Love how this system can be removed at any time so I don’t lose my bed space. Works very well with an 8 ft bed. I would recommend this hitch to anyone! 744682

This is a quality product. It arrived quickly, the instructions were clear and in a very short time i was ready to pull our 5th wheel. We have not had any issues with the product. The fact that it is a two piece hitch sure makes installation/removal a fairly easy job. 585237

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

First of all, I received everything a day earlier than expected. I asked the delivery guys to put it in the back of my truck; so I didn't even have to lift it up. The B&W Companion fifth wheel hitch installed so easily, and believe me I'm no mechanic by any means. I deliver RV's all over the country. The B&W Companion hitch is so easy to use and once hooked up I could hardly tell the trailer was there. Excellent hitch that I would recommend highly. 593585

Review from a similar Companion in Fifth Wheel Hitch


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

Review from a similar Companion in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I would like to say that I was not looking forward to putting this hitch on my truck. I heard nothing but nightmares and horror stories, but it couldn't be farther from the truth. I had a friend come over to help (glad I did cause that turnoverball hitch would have been a bear to hold up by yourself. It was ten times easier than I would have imagined. Just follow the instructions and it's a piece of cake. We had the turnover all hitch on in less than 2 hours. Unfortunately I had a rusted brake line that I had to repair before completing the job. Haven't used it yet but can't wait to hitch it up and hit the road. Thanks for making this hitch so easy to install. I'm glad it's American made and extremely heavy duty. 539585

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

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

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.

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.

  • Comparing Curt A25 and B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitches for 2020 GMC Sierra 3500
    This is a really great question. The B&W OEM Companion # BWRVK3715 and the Curt A25 # C24FR for the factory pucks on your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 (congrats on the new truck, by the way!) represent the very peak of fixed 5th wheel hitches on the market.

  • Did Chevy Change the Puck Spacing for Factory 5th Wheel Puck System
    We have recently learned that the puck spacing for the factory prep package for the 2020 model year has changed for Chevy/GMC so the only 5th wheel hitches we can confirm as of August 2019 that will fit your 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500 are the B&W Companion # BWRVK3715 (for a long bed) or sliding # BWRVK3775 (for a short bed). That will assuredly change though so I have added a link to our page which has the fits for the OEM puck system for a 2020 Silverado 3500 long bed for you to come back to.
