Everything arrived at a timely manner.. the video instructions were very helpful took me about 4 hours to install .. works great for my fiftwheel camper . I would recommend this product to anybody 905290

This is a very well made product. Thick steel with a very good finish on it. All of the brackets are thick heavy steel. I didn't have any issues with the pieces matching up with the corresponding vehicle manufacturer locations. One thing I will point out, this is a significant undertaking. Plan on taking most of a day to complete this instillation including the assembly of a hitch if that's what you ordered. I Highly recommend this product! 829009

I’ve been fighting with getting a decent deal on a fifth wheel hitch and install kit and was hesitant to order online because I needed it fast. I was so surprised to see that 30 min after I ordered it they had already packaged and shipped the kit! I got it on time and with no issues at all. I couldn’t be more happy! 707864

Install was harder than expected because rear bracket passenger sided ended up with the nut against the brace for the track bar had to find a thin open end and attempt install that way. 620341

Easy install was the main thing about this kit and it proved to be very easy to install. Make sure you use a small bit for pilot holes as I had to move the rails about a 1/2 inch forward of the first pilot holes after loosely installing the brackets on the frame to ensure everything lined up. Would recommend this kit over any other, I've installed the Universal Style before and would never do it again. Spend the extra money and buy this set over the Universal and don't waste money on the overpriced ones. 612367

I was on the fence on which tow system to buy. Hands down the BWRVK2602, was no competition We will be setting it up on our 2018 2500 Ram. The package arrived and upon opening saw the fit and finish on all the pieces. A huge help is the video available to show exact steps to get all this mounted. I will be back to get all my brake controller parts. Thanks so much Nick C. for all the help. 607454

  • Curt Base Rail Kit for 2018 Ram 2500 for Superglide 2700 5th Wheel Hitch
    Above-bed 5th wheel base rails are all standardized so you can use any brand of base rail with your Pull-Rite SuperGlide 2700 hitch. ISRs, or industry standard rails, have common dimensions and work with all brands of hitch. I suggest the Curt kit # C16427-204 for your Ram 2500 with 6-1/2-foot bed. This is a custom kit that includes brackets that do not require drilling into your Ram's frame; it uses pre-existing holes for installation which saves a lot of time. Please refer to the linked...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Base Rails for a 2018 Dodge 2500
    You can use a sliding 5th hitch in your long bed truck, however you'll need to add a base rail kit for your vehicle. One of the great things about 5th wheel hitches is that they use an industry standard rail and are mostly compatible across brands, so you're likely to have a fit. I recommend using the B&W Custom Install Kit, part # BWRVK2602 as it is compatible with all major 5th wheel hitch brands. This kit uses the existing holes in your frame to install the base rails, and avoids...

  • Are B&W Base Rails Compatible With Demco Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch on 2018 Ram 2500?
    The B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # BWRVK2602 is compatible with above-bed fifth wheel hitches from Demco, so if by "Ultimate Slider" you were referencing a Demco Hijacker such as # DM8550034 which mounts on above-bed rails then yes, it will work in your 2018 Ram 2500. I've added a link to a video review of these rails as well as an install video of the rails being put on an '18 Ram 2500.

    For a fifth wheel rail kit custom fit for your 2016 Ram 2500 short bed that is available right now you'd want the B and W part # BWRVK2602 that will install easily in your truck and is the exact type of rails that your Reese 15k hitch needs. I attached an install video for this rail kit in a 2016 Ram 2500 just like yours as well.

  • Compatibility of the RBW Little Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch with B&W Custom Base Rails for 2017 Ram 2500
    The RBW Little Rocker 5th wheel hitch is designed to mount to industry standard rails. The B&W Custom Base Rails, # BWRVK2602, are above the bed 5th wheel industry standard rails. The RBW hitch will work well with these base rails on your 2017 Ram 2500 truck.

    An installation kit confirmed to fit and recommended by B&W for your short bed 2018 RAM 2500 is their Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2602. I have included an installation video to help you get started. For your 2018 Ram 2500 Short Bed with RamBox, you do need to use a Sidewinder pin box that moves the pivot point of your trailer back which is needed for turning clearance with your reduced space due not only to the short bed, but even more...

    The PullRite 2700 ISR series is compatible with industry standard bed rails, such as those provided with the B&W # BWRVK2602 5th wheel bracket/rail kit so your hitch and the rails in this kit will work together perfectly. If you'd like to install a 7-way trailer connection in the truck bed, you can use # 20110, I've linked to a video showing how to install the 7-way connector/wiring harness.

  • Can Stationary 5th Wheel Hitch be Used for a 2018 Ram 2500 with Short Bed
    You could potentially use the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Rails and Universal Installation Kit # C16116 to tow your 35' RV with your 2018 Ram 2500 but I really don't recommend doing that for 3 reasons. The first is that this is a universal installation rail kit which means that you have to do some drilling into the frame of your brand new vehicle and the second is that the E16 is an entry level 5th wheel hitch that can get the job done but it doesn't secure the king pin very well,...

  • Which 5th Wheel Hitch and Compatible Sidewinder King Pin for 2017 Ram 2500 4x4
    We've got just what you're looking for when it comes to the hitch and a Sidewinder style pin box for your 2017 Ram 2500. For the hitch I recommend using the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3255, since it can be adjusted up to 19" tall, which is the tallest available for hitches that will fit your 2017 Ram 2500. B&W is known for their high quality products and the Patriot is no exception; the dual locking jaws are 3/4" thick and provide 360 degrees of king pin contact, so there's better security...

    Assuming that your SuperGlide hitch is an ISR version that fits in industry standard rails you can use any of the custom installation kits available for the 2018 Ram 2500. Reese kit # RP50054-58 is a popular option. You will not have to drill into the truck frame for installation so install time is less than on universal or semi-custom kits. You could also use the similar B&W kit # BWRVK2602 or Curt kit # C16427-204. Again, no drilling into the frame is required. The easiest kit to...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch and Parts Needed to Tow 2014 Ram 2500 With RamBox
    In order to tow a 5th wheel with a 2014 Ram 2500 with the RamBox cargo management you will need a Sidewinder in order to allow the proper clearances so the pin box does not hit the RamBoxes. To find the correct Sidewinder what you will need to know is the manufacturer and model number of the pin box on your fifth wheel and match that with the correct replacement, such as the Sidewinder # RP34FR. This will replace Lippert 0719, 1621 and 1621HD, Fabex 663 and 665, M&M 663 and 665, along...

  • Slider Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ram 2500 Short Bed that's Easy to Remove Head Off
    As far as slider hitches go the B and W Patriot Slider part # BWRVK3270 would probably be the easiest to remove the head of to make removing it a bit easier. The base will still be pretty heavy but its the only option we have that's going to be easier to take apart to make easier for install/removal. For a rail kit confirmed as a fit for your 2018 Ram 2500 short bed you'd then want the kit part # BWRVK2602 which is a confirmed fit.

  • Curt or B&W Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ram 2500
    I would highly recommend the B and W Patriot Hitch part # BWRVK3270 that you referenced with the rail kit part # BWRVK2602 that you also referenced over the Curt. There's nothing really wrong with the Curt but the B and W hitch heads are among the nicest hitches around and I know you will be very happy with it.

  • Can Fifth Wheel Hitch Installed in 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 be Used in 2018 Ram 2500
    If you have the B and W Patriot fifth wheel hitch part # BWRVK3200 that you referenced you can pretty easily install it in your 2018 Ram 2500 with just a new rail kit. For that all you'd need is the part # BWRVK2602 and you'd be set if your truck does not have the factory fifth wheel rail kit. If instead you do have the factory fifth wheel rail kit you'd want the rail kit adapter part # RP30154 to convert it to a rail set compatible with the Patriot.

  • 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Hitch Recommendations for a 2016 Ram 2500 with RamBox
    You can tow both a 5th wheel and gooseneck trailer with your 2016 Ram 2500. However, in order to tow a 5th wheel trailer you will need to use a fixed 5th wheel hitch and Sidewinder pin box because you have the RamBox which limits clearance. In order to tow a gooseneck trailer, I recommend using the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNRK1384. This hitch features a hide away hitch ball that will give you full truck bed access once removed in addition to providing...

    I found a couple 5th wheel hitches that will work well with your 2014 Ram 2500 with 6 ft. bed. The first hitch I like is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch, # DM8550034, and the Demco Above-Bed Base Rails, # DM8552025-71. This Demco hitch has a weight capacity of 18K lbs and a pivoting head to help reduce chucking. The best feature of the Demco hitch is the Autoslide function. This feature will automatically engage the hitch's slider without exiting the cab of your truck. The...

    A 6-1/2-foot bed truck like your Ram 2500 will need a sliding type 5th wheel hitch in order for you to have enough clearance to make tight turns without the cab window and trailer making contact. If your truck has the factory rail kit (with hitch mounting pucks in the bed) then the best option is the B&W Companion hitch model # BWRVK3670. B&W build quality is unmatched and their hitches are completely USA fabricated and assembled. This 20K-rated hitch includes features like a slider...

  • Is Hitch Height of B and W Patriot Slider Hitch a Major Concern When Towing
    Normally a great deal of height adjustment is not needed with fifth wheel hitches. There are some really well known hitches that don't offer any adjustment at all. The height range of the B and W Patriot part # BWRVK3270 is 17-19 inches which typically is all that's needed. Also you can adjust the height of the pin box on the trailer for further adjustment so additional height adjustment is available. Since you don't have a trailer yet and the fact that height range is pretty rarely an...

These standard rails are offered by many brands but you can use any one since they share the same dimensions.

If you need the complete kit that includes the rails as well use part # BWRVK2602. I've linked an install video in a Ram for you. If you also want to add wiring to the truck's bed I recommend the Bargman # 50-97-410. This install video is also linked.

  • Do 5th Wheel Installation Brackets Require Specific Set of Rails for 2015 Ram 2500
    A fifth wheel installation kit does require a specific set of base rails from the same manufacturer. What that means is if you aren't sure the base rails you currently have then you will need to get an all-new set of both brackets and rails. So for your 2015 Ram 2500 I recommend going with a custom-mounted kit that does not require any drilling. That is not only good for your truck but also saves literal hours when doing the installation. The kits that fit your '15 Ram 2500 are: -...

    The B&W Patriot slider # BWRVK3270 is a great option for your 2014 Ram 2500 short bed and 2017 Glacier Peak 5th wheel trailer. Installation kit # BWRVK2602 will work too but if the truck has overload springs, which as a 2500 it likely does, the best option is kit # BWRVR3202-00 which was designed for models with overload springs. I also recommend adding a 7-Way in the bed of the truck using # 41157. This makes hooking up easier without having to use an extension to reach a bumper...
