Purchased a 5th wheel from them and was surprised when the order was missing a piece. The top half of the 5th wheel was not delivered. I called and they said that it was back ordered and would not get delivery for a month. Well, I was very surprised when it showed up less than a week later. Very happy and they communicated very well with us. I have ordered other parts and delivered in short time a all there. Would recommend them. 339520

  • Base Rail Kit for 5th Wheel Hitch on 2018 Ford F-250 with Aluminum Bed
    The B&W Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt # BWRVR3200 will fit your 2018 Ford F-250 with aluminum bed but B&W doesn't recommend it. You will want to use some sort of spacers/isolators that help prevent galvanic corrosion due to the dissimilar metals. My recommendation is to use the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit for Ford # C16428-204 which will give you brackets that require no drilling into your frame and also comes with the...

    I have a couple options for you that will work for you. The B&W Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt part # BWRVR3200 that you ha looked at would be a great one to use or the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt part # RP30035 is also a good choice. They will both install the same way the only real difference is in the color. To best match your fifth wheel head the Reese is the best choice. For...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Hitch be Installed on a Flat Bed Truck
    There are specific 5th wheel hitches for flat bed trucks and no installation kits because of how the hitches must install. As an example take a look at flat bed hitch # RP30054. To install the hitch a 1/2 inch thick steel plate has to be professionally welded to the truck frame below the flat bed. Then the hitch can be bolted to that plate. A hitch or rails cannot mount to just the bed because the bed is not strong enough in most cases for 5th wheel towing.

    If you have the 18K Pullrite Superglide hitch for industry standard rails, then the B&W Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt # BWRVR3200 will fit together and work well. If you want a custom bracket kit with the same industry standard rails, I recommend the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2502.

  • Can Above Bed Base Rails Be Used If There is a B&W Turnoverball Installed
    I do have an option for you but the B&W Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # BWRVR3200 will not work for you if you already have a B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch installed. However, what you can do if you need to mount an above bed 5th wheel hitch that uses industry standard base rails is use the Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitches part # 16310 which will give you the same rails...

  • Can B and W Patriot Fifth Wheel Hitch Fit and Install in 2017 Ford F-250 Long Bed
    We can easily help you install the B and W Patriot Fifth Wheel hitch # BWRVK3200 in the bed of your 2017 Ford F-250 long bed but we do not have the rail kit part number you mentioned. Instead you would need the Reese rail kit part # RP50074-58 which is a confirmed fit for your truck and provides the same rails that the Patriot is designed to fit. This is a custom install kit too which means it will install in half the time as a universal kit and will minimize drilling.

  • 5th Wheel Base Rails Needed for a 1989 Chevy K3500
    Since you have an older pickup you will need to use universal bed rails. The B&W Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit # BWRVR3200 that you referenced will fit and work great on your 1989 Chevy K3500 with an 8' bed. For a compatible 5th wheel hitch I recommend using the B&W Patriot. This hitch comes in a 16K version # BWRVK3200 as well as an 18K version # BWRVK3255, is made in the USA, and is considered by most to be the best 5th wheel hitch out there. The best part about the Patriot...

    The B&W Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt # BWRVR3200 will work on most vehicles including your 2014 GMC 2500 Short Bed.

  • B&W Base Rail Kit for Using 18K Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2019 Chevy Silverado
    The B&W base rail kit that you would have installed on your 2012 Ford F-250 is either the Custom # BWRVK2401 or the Universal # BWRVR3200. The base rails for your older Ford are different than what they need for the new 2019 Chevy Silverado but they will still be able to utilize a Patriot 18K part # BWRVK3255 or part # BWRVK3270 using one of the following base rail kits (depending on what model Silverado they have): Silverado 1500 LD - # BWRVK2503 Silverado 1500 - # BWRVK2504 Silverado...

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...

    The Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Chevy/GMC # C16411 are a fit for 2011-2019 Chevy and GMC 2500 and 3500 models. They will work with industry standard B&W rails like # BWRVR3200. You will want new hardware for those rails like # RP58430 as the hardware is torqued and only rated for one installation. You will want to note that using parts instead of a complete kit changes the warranty as these parts are not tested together even though they are tested for use with their same...

  • Can B and W Patriot Fifth Wheel Hitch be Used in Bed of 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Long Bed
    The part # BWRVB3270 is just the slider base of the slider Patriot hitch part # BWRVK3270 which could fit in the bed of your 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 long bed as long as you had a standard set of fifth wheel rails installed. Which for that you'd just need the part # BWRVR3200 and you'd be set. Since you have a long bed truck you really wouldn't need a slider hitch since the slider hitches are designed to give better turning clearance. A better option would be the fixed Patriot part # BWRVK3255...

  • What Thickness Are The Reese RP30047 Clamping Jaws
    I contacted Reese on your behalf that confirmed the clamping jaw thickness of the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30047 is 5/8". While a 2-Jaw locking system provides more jaw-to-king-pin contact than slide-bar models, the towing experience is not as optimal as those providing 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact. If you're open to other hitch options, a more streamline designed 5th wheel hitch opton that provides that 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact and also has a 3/4" jaw thickness...
