  • Will B&W Base Rails on 2014 Ram 3500 Work with Hensley TS3 and BD3 5th Wheel Hitch
    The B&W Custom Installation Kit # BWRVK2605 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2014 Ram 3500. This kit features industry standard, above-bed base rails that will work with most fifth-wheel hitches on the market. Based on my research, both the Hensley TS3 and BD3 Air Ride 5th Wheel Hitches are designed to fit industry-standard base rails, so either option will work perfectly with the B&W kit on your truck. I have attached an installation video for this kit on the 2013...

  • Recommended B&W 5th Wheel Install Kit for a 2013 Ram Mega Cab
    I believe the Mega Cab was only offered on the 2500 and 3500 models so I will assume that is what your 2013 Ram is. If that is the case then you can choose between the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # BWRVK2605 which is a custom fit kit that does not require any drilling into the frame or a universal kit like you asked for that requires drilling into the frame, the B&W Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part...

  • Weight of B&W Patriot 16K 5th Wheel Hitch BWRVK3200
    If you intend to purchase a 5th wheel trailer that has a Revolution or Sidewinder pivoting pin box for use with your 2013 Ram 2500 short bed then you will not need a sliding-type hitch and can use a fixed hitch of your preference. However, the excellent B&W Companion 20K hitch # BWRVK3500-5W, which mounts using the gooseneck install kit # BWGNRK1313-5W, is not compatible with any type of pivoting pin box. You are correct that B&W makes a serious product. Their 5th wheel hitches are produced...

  • Which 5th Wheel Bed Rail Mounting Bracket for Demco Autoslide on 2013 Dodge Ram 2500
    What brand of bed rails do you have? It's recommended to use bed rails and frame brackets from the same manufacturer. If you mix manufacturers of rails and brackets, it's possible to have an unknown weight capacity which isn't a good thing. If you have Curt bed rails, I'd use # C16426. For Reese, use # RP56011 For Husky, use # HT32084 For Demco, use # DM8552015 B & W doesn't sell their brackets separately, they must be purchased with the bed rails. Their rail/bracket kit...

  • Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2013 Ram 2500 Short Bed
    Either the Curt # C16536 Q20 Fifth Wheel Hitch w/ Slider with its 20K capacity or the 20K Capacity B&W BWRVK3270 Patriot Sliding Fifth wheel hitch would be a great choice. Both hitches are high quality, and would offer you a secure, relatively smooth ride. For the Curt hitch, use the # C16426-204 rail kit or for the B&W Patriot, use # BWRVK2605. My only issue with bed rail mounted hitches is the fact that the rails remain in the bed when you're not using the hitch. If you don't use...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ram 3500 Crew Cab
    I have a couple of different options for your 2017 Ram 3500 Crew Cab. Your truck has a bed height of just over 20 inches so I will recommend some 5th wheel hitches that are adjustable to under 3 inches of that 20 inch mark that you're looking for. The most economical option for your Ram is the Curt E16 5th Wheel Hitch # C16115 with the Curt Base Rails # C16426-204. This features the Slide Bar Jaw to secure your king pin and has a Gross Towing Weight of 16,000 lbs. The next step up...

  • B and W Patriot Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500 Short Bed
    While 6-1/2 foot is longer than most truck short beds it's still recommended to go with a slider hitch so that you can make tight turns unless the nose of your trailer is tapered to allow for short bed clearance. So for a slider hitch the B and W Patriot Slider part # BWRVK3270 would be the way to go. Then for a custom rail kit for your 2017 Ram 3500 you'd want the part # BWRVK2605 and you'd be set.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ram 3500 with Short Bed to Tow Grand Design Solitude 310GK
    I'll start by saying that because you have a short bed truck, you will need a sliding hitch in order to make sure that you can safely turn while towing your 5th wheel trailer and not create contact between the nose of your trailer and the cab of your truck. You can also accomplish this by going with a Sidewinder style pin box like the Reese # RP61421, but I typically only like to recommend those on truck beds shorter than 6-ft or 5th wheel trailers with extremely protruding noses. If...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ram 3500 Crew Cab
    My recommendation of a 5th wheel hitch will be dependent on box length. The Crew Cabs are available in short bed or long bed options and with or without the factory prep package. For a 6-1/2 foot bed I recommend the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3270 because it will slide very well and has some integrated shock absorption. Then you will use the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2605. If you have the 6-1/2 foot bed with the prep package pucks,...

  • How To Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2019 Ram 3500 That Has RamBoxes
    The RamBox feature on your 2019 Ram 3500 is going to limit your list of available options but this is still possible. In order to avoid any bedside clearance issues you will have no choice but to install a rotating pin box, the Reese Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pin part # RP61420 for example. This moves the pivot point back away from the vehicle to create turning clearance. In order to make sure we get you the correct rotating pin box I will need to know the model number of the pin box on...

  • Sidewinder Pin Box and 5th Wheel Hitch for 2016 Ram 3500 Short Box
    The Ram Box feature is not ideal on a short-bed truck that will do 5th wheel towing due to the chance for interference but we have heard of successful Sidewinder installations. The correct 5th Airborne Sidewinder to replace a 1621 or 1621HD pin box is part # RP61422 that you referenced. This box also fits in place of several Fabex and M&M pin boxes. However, since it is rated for only 16K it will not have the necessary capacity for your trailer. We do offer the non-cushioned 19K-rated...
