Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Are willing to pay a little more for the all-American craftsmanship that B&W is known for - this hitch is easy to use and looks good for years
  • Take the time to make sure you hitch is in the optimal spot and like having adjustments not only for the height but also forward and back

No, if you:

  • Use your truck bed often to haul other things while you tow your fifth wheel and want a less bulky hitch taking up space
  • Travel over very rough roads and want extra cushion in the head to absorb road shock
Specially designed to attach to the receivers in your factory 5th-wheel towing prep package, the Companion OEM features a dual jaw for excellent jaw-to-king-pin contact and a cam-action handle for simple release.

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.

I purchased this 5th wheel hitch for my 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD Dually (factory 5th wheel puck system). And I’ve only owned this unit for a few days so this review is about etrailers service and the 5th wheel installation.
I do have to mark off a star because of shipping. Because when I received the 5th wheel the box it was put back together with duck tape and was holding on for dear life. After unboxing the 5th wheel hitch it held up pretty well with only 2 spots where the powder coat paint Job rubbed off (and I can live with that). And there was a missing keeper pin for the puck leg and this is where I would give etrailer 5 stars. Because after talking with one of the guys from etrailer, he was able to ship out my missing pin the next day. Thank you etrailer!
Installing the 5th wheel was pretty fast and it fits like a glove. Not much more to say about that.




by:

The B&W Companion for the GM Puck system has been flawless. Its been smooth, no failures and quiet. I love that it separates into two pieces for easy removal, when needed. Would highly recommend this hitch.




by:

Excellent 5th wheel hitch. Although heavy, it is relatively quick and easy to remove from the truck bed and then re-install. Very secure when towing. Quiet, no clanking. Yes, I would recommend this to anyone wanting to buy a 5th wheel hitch.


Comments
Two years later - I am still very happy with this 5th wheel hitch and would still recommend it. I give it 5 stars. My only complaint is that it is heavy, but thats because it is well built and Im getting old.

I have zero complaints. This is without question the best hitch on the market. I have owned two B&W hitches the only reaso I have owned two was a tow vehicle change. My new truck is an OEM installation. I also upgraded from a 20K to a 25K.


Comments
My hitch has worked without fail this first year. I have absolutely nothing negative to report. I pull with complete confidence.

My order shipped on time and was in great shape when it arrived. I have not installed it, but don’t think that will be an issue. B&W makes great products and etrailer is a great distributor! Thanks etrailer!




by:

This is one heavy duty hitch, well designed and adjustable. I love it!


Comments
Best and easiest to use fifth wheel hitch I’ve ever owned, absolutely love it

Received the product quickly. The FedEx driver dropped the product, due to it’s weight, and destroyed the boxes. One of the hitch pins were missing and another hitch pin was broken. Will call customer service and see if they will send me a few hitch pins.


Comments
I am sorry to hear about the damage to the hitch pins. Customer Service will be sending out new ones.

It is working great. We have made many camping trips towing our 44 foot fifth wheel with no problems.

2021 GMC Sierra 3500

The head and base arrived in separate boxes. One person can handle each box. The hitch is very well built. The hitch jaws are very easy to operate. The only thing I would like to see changed on the hitch is the location of the two hitch locking points (latched closed and latch open). I’m 5’10” tall and I am not tall enough to reach the locking points on the lever standing on the ground. I have to step up onto the rear tire of our 2021 GMC 3500 in order to drop the pin into the holes to lock the jaws lever closed and open.


Comments
I am very happy with the hitch. The hitch is very forgiving when latching and unlatching the jaws. For what its worth, I tested and verified that one can open the hitch jaws while the hitch is fully loaded. I have found that where the hitch head sits on the base needs to be greased after each use. This is inline with what B&W recommends for the hitch. Im very happy with this hitch.

Shipped fast, was about a 30 minute install with a friend, so little hassle when hooking up to a 5th wheel camper.




by:
2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

Top notch, I have a 20K on my 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD been great. That’s why I bought another one for my 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD but that one is a 25K . My only complaint is one of the handles was bent right out of the box.

Fantastic hitch for my ‘22 GMC 3500. Use it for my 45 foot toy hauler and what an exceptional job it does. Easy installation and instructions were clear. Highly recommend as I researched many other hitches. Last hitch was a Curt and I was skeptical about leaving the brand but B&W is an outstanding product and would definitely buy it again




by:
2020 GMC Sierra 3500

The hitch appears to be very well made and of solid construction. All welds look great and fit and finish is excellent. Operation is smooth and tight. My unit is for GMC 3500HD w/factory hitch prep and unit seats into sockets very well and once properly adjusted it locks in place with solid connection. Initial out of box assembly and install was literally completed during my lunch break. Haven’t towed with it yet but I expect it will perform satisfactory.




by:

Thanks Paula S customer service rep you were a great help in getting the correct hitch ordered. this is my 2nd B&W hitch as far as I am concerned there is no better,
etrailer has the best customer service and prices available.
I received the shipment 1 day earlier than scheduled.
The hitch is installed adjusted and torqued ready to go,
The step by step instructions sheets were very clear on installation and adjustments.




by:

Had trouble getting the pins into the pucks.
I
could only 2 in at any time had the castle nuts loosened way up.
Called etrailer spoke with josh explained the problem he was very helpful asked for pictures I tried again still only 2 aligned up but closer had a third close jumped and it went into place. Was real worried had to leave to pick up new trailer in two days. Have not removed it and tried to reinstall yet hopefully was just too much powder coat or bed liner.
But hitch works great.




by:

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.




by:

Followed the video instructions and it made the install easy. Have used the hitch for multiple pulls including two 8 hour pulls and has performed flawlessly and the last pull was not a smooth one so it was put through it's paces and performed well. I would buy another one of these if the situation arises.

Chevrolet Silverado

easy setup! All tools required are in the picture, minus a torque wrench. If you are looking at this for your fifth wheel, get it. etrailer was very fast shipping and Alexis was awesome on the phone answering all my questions. 2021 silverado 3500 hd dually 8ft bed. Plenty of room back here for activities - I mean cargo. The box was not damaged, unboxing was simple and instructions were very easy.




by:

I am more than happy with the quality and performance of my B&W Companion 25,000 lb hitch. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a high quality hitch.


Comments
Everything is working great at this point. No issues, installation of hitch was a breeze. Hook up and disconnect of 5th wheel trailer really simple.
Terry - 03/23/2022


by:

The hitch is very sturdy and works well with the GM puck system in my truck. I like the tight hold on the king pin and the ease at which it comes in and out of the truck bed. I can't think of anything negative to say about this hitch. I would recommend it to friends and family. It is much easier to handle than my last one and much easier than a hitch my parents have in their truck.

This is my second BMW hitch. I feel very secure toing my fifth wheel with it.




by:

Perfect fit, easy install, did a great job towing our 15,000lb trailer for the last three months.




by:
2021 GMC Sierra 3500

This is another excellent B&W product. This hitch is exactly as promised and fit perfectly.




by:

Works great, only down fall is that it doesn’t stay with the weak spring down in position to be able to load easily.




by:

Best Hitch on the market! Super fast shipping and the price was unbeatable!




by:

I received my hitch today, and had it put together and installed in my truck in less than 45 minutes. Looks extremely well made!! I won’t use it for a couple weeks till our camper comes in, but I’m sure it will work fantastic.
