Quiet, Secure Ride

The 3/4" thick jaw on the Patriot 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.


In addition to the sturdy jaw, the Patriot 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 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 Patriot 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".


Easily Adjustable Design

The B&W Patriot can 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.


Patriot Hitch Arm Positioning Diagram

To adjust either the height of the Patriot or the fore/aft positioning, just attach the hitch's pivot arms in the desired location on the base. The above diagram gives an indication of where to mount the arms so that you get the height and the cab clearance that you need.

Video Transcript for B and W Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - BWRVK3200 Review

Today were going to review part number BWRVK3200. This is the B and W Patriot fifth wheel trailer hitch. Its a dual jaw design. It has a 16,000 lbs. gross towing weight capacity. This fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer.

It does use the inch thick dual jaws which will provide 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact. That will give you less rattle and more security then a lot of your slide bar type fifth wheel hitches. Now the dual jaw in this Patriot is operated by this simple to use cam action handle. Basically, let me just rotate this so you will be able to see. Heres a pin and a clip here.

If you remove the clip and then pull the pin out that will release the handle so what youll be able to do is when you push this handle back youll see that the dual jaws will open and youre ready to hook up to the trailer. And when you back up and the kingpin slides in here it will push up against the very back of those jaws and when it does that it will push those jaws closed around the kingpin and will move that handle back into its position to where you can drop the pin through there and put the clip on and its locked and ready to go. This handle will allow you to quickly and easily release the jaws also. Even if youre on uneven ground, basically what will happen is if theres any binding that occurs between the truck and the trailer, what will happen is these jaws may remain closed after you move this handle to the open position. What will happen is because the handle is unlatched, theres a cam in here and if this handle is unlatched theres nothing keeping these jaws closed except for the binding pressure between the truck and the trailer.

So what will happen is when you open this and if theyre still closed, you can actually start to pull forward and that kingpin will push those jaws open. So thats a nice features if you happen to be on uneven ground. And also if you want where this pin and clip goes through the hole, you can put a padlock through there if you like to lock it to make it more secure. We do sell those separately. Now this fifth wheel hitch does have a fully articulating head which will ease hookup and helps eliminate any chucking.

It will, as you can see front to back, it rides on these polyurethane bushings and is a quiet, rattle free ride. It will articulate front to back and then this head part will also move side to side also. Its very hard because theres no weight on it right now. You can also get your cab clearance. You can get more cab clearance if you like with the 4 inches of front to back adjustments. So your fore and aft can be adjusted. Basically the way you do that is how you would attach these pivot arms to your base plate right here and basically on the side of this base plate they have about five rows of five holes, so about 25 holes on each side so these pivot arms can move front to back. Theres even sort of a triangle shape. Let me turn it again and youll see theres sort of a triangle shape. You can actually flip them around. So depending on where you mount in which holes it will give you up to 4 inches of fore and aft adjustment from to back. Now you can also, by where you put them up or down, you have four different height settings to fit your application also. Depending on the lowest setting, it would be about 16 inches hitch height above the truck bed all the way up to the highest setting which would be 19 inches. Now another thing I would recommend is if you go to the product page for this part number, on the product page we have a chart and it will show you when this pivot arms are put in each different position what the measurements it will be. It will give you fore and aft and the height so that will help you out tremendously. Now the base rails and the installation kit are sold separately. It is compatible with your industry standard above bed rails by B and W, Curt, Drawtight, Hidden Hitch Pro Series inaudible 00:03:58 Valley. You can simply the installation with a semicustom bracket kit. You need to check your vehicle to see if one is available. They are not available for all applications, but it will save you some time. This has a grey powder coat on this steel. The steel is grey powder coat finish which is corrosion resistant. It is made in the USA and again the gross towing weight capacity is 16,000 lbs. Vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 4,000 lbs. The hitch height I had mentioned can be adjusted anywhere fro 16 inches all the way up to 19 inches. It does have a limited five year warranty. The other thing I want to mention to you is when you go to remove this, instead of having to, you dont want to have to move all of this weight all at one time so to make it easier to remove what you can do is these handles right here on the side, they have these rubber coating on them. If you just pull up on these handles you can pick this hitch head up and remove it off these pivot arms and that will save you some weight and then the pivot arms and the baseplate you can take out separately so you dont have to pull the whole thing out of your truck bed. If youre done towing a fifth wheel and you want full access to your truck bed to make it easier you can pull this head off and then pull the base plates out separately. Now one other thing I want to mention is when you do pull this head off what you do want to check is underneath the head in the middle you will notice theres a grease zerk fitting and that grease zerk fitting is made to where you can attach a grease gun to and then you can lube this pivot point right in here to help as far as the movement of the articulating head. That should do it for the review on part number BWRVK3200, the B and W Patriot fifth wheel trailer hitch with the 16,000 lbs. gross weight towing capacity. .

Solid, reliable hitch, has given us no problems in the time that we have owned it. Very well made product. 577233

SOLID. Hooking up and dropping off trailer was a breeze with the pivoting head unit. I bought this hitch along with the rail and frame mounting kit (BWRVK2401). Easy enough for one person to install, if you have help it would be easier. Had to drop the DEF tank (2015 Ford F-250), would have been nice to have a wire to fish a bolt and locking star washer through from the inside of the frame without dropping the tank. Also have the Airlift 5000 bags installed and had to drill a hole in the drivers side frame mounting bracket for one of the mounting bolts for the air bag. Overall very happy with everything purchased from etrailer. 566493

My first impression of the hitch as I was unpacking it was that the fit and finish was superb. The hardware was easy to work with and good instructions. I also ordered the B&W custom rail installation kit and began installing the rails after assembling the hitch. Again, great fit and finish of the hardware but the instructions might need a little bit of modification. All went well until I finished installing the second rail and test fit the hitch. Because of the tight tolerances, I had to loosen all of the hitch bolts in order to get it to drop into the rail slots and pin it, then re-torque the bolts while mounted on the rails. Also, there is a bracket inside the drivers side frame rail that must be relocated. The almost identical kit from Reese includes a new bracket to remount the old bracket that must be moved. The B&W kit does not have this bracket although it was easy to fabricate one. I am waiting for my new trailer to arrive so I haven't hitched up anything yet. However, I am confident that the B&W hitch will certainly do the job well. I purchased the Patriot hitch based on actual user comments I found on the RV forums and can see now that it is a quality product. 548668

Wow what a big difference my new 16k Patriot hitch has made. Easier to hook up and unhook my 5th wheel. Definitely makes a smoother ride, no up and down, up and down. My only regret is I should have bought it sooner. Thanks for a superior product! 513046

by:

A great, well made American product. Easily assembled if you choose to install it yourself as I did. I am a big fan of the cam lock and handle assembly for the jaws. There is no movement or noise when pulling our 5th wheel. I would recommend this hitch to anyone needing such a product and would recommend you buy it from etrailer. 337957

I bought this hitch to replace a slider hitch from another manufacturer. I wanted something I could get out of the bed without help, and with the 2" offset, I can get plenty of angle in a tight turn, thus eliminating the need for a slider. So far this hitch is fantastic. Hook up is so easy. Handle moves with zero effort. Same for unhooking. As soon as it was installed, I did a test run, and it was rock solid. I tried to make it chuck when starting and stopping. It wouldn't do it. Zero slop. On that note, the tolerances are tight on this thing from the bolt holes to the legs that insert it into the rails. My rails we're not perfectly lined up and required a little dremel and foot stomping to get it in the rails. In summary, if your looking for solid, conventional, non-slider FW hitch, this one is a great choice. 430654

Let me start with the hitch worked fine, I was disappointed with the fact I had to bolt it together. I can understand the height and distant part but the main frame for that much money should have been assembled. I saw the bolts in the picture but assumed it was put together. Will see how it holds up and how much it works loose. 616548

The BW Patriot is an excellent hitch for our Jayco 5th wheel. The best thing about it is that it is made in the USA.

I bought the B&W 16K Patriot hitch knowing it was a bolt together hitch. Having said that the process was complicated by nut retainers supplied by B&W were not strong enough to do their designed job. I spoke with B&W about this and they offerd to replace them but the design was the same. The hitch itself, once assembled, is fantastic. It is solid and quiet and the adjustability of the head position makes it very versatile as well. I would recommend the B&W Patriot, but think it would be better if you can, to spend the other $200 and get the welded base 18K model. 404083


Comments

After having this hitch for a year and towing my 34ft 5th wheel for thousands of miles, I would 100 recommend this hitch for anyone considering it. It is solid, quiet, and made and backed by American workers.

This product is exactly what I wanted. The product information and instructions were spot on and that to me is what is great. The only thing I might suggest is to install the rails at the time you install the hitch, it makes it easier to line up the rails. 242986

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel?


  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails and Hitch for 2018 Ram 2500 Tall Bed Rails
  • For your 2018 Ram 2500, we haven't had anyone say they couldn't find a 5th wheel fit. You will want to go with a hitch that has the higher height adjustment and then you'll want to make sure your pin box of your trailer is adjustable as well. I recommend the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3200 which will use standard rails and will adjust up to 19 inches tall. This is a very strong hitch that is made in the USA. For your rails, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom...

  • B&W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches for a 2019 Ford F-250 with Factory Prep Package
  • The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3200 is designed to fit industry standard above the bed rails so it is not a fit for the Ford factory prep package that will be in your 2019 Ford F-250. Assuming that the Ford prep package does not change between 2018 and 2019 you will be able to instead use the B&W Companion # BWRVK3300 or # BWRVK3305 for a long bed or use Companion Slider # BWRVK3370 for a short bed. I have linked videos on all 3 of these hitches for you.

  • 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...

  • How to Remove Chucking From Fifth Wheel Trailer with Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • Typically it's the fifth wheel hitch that is responsible for chucking and bouncing. A looser fitting jaw to the king pin of the pin box is the number one reason for chucking. You didn't mention what hitch you have, but for a hitch with an excellent jaw design The B and W Patriot part # BWRVK3200 would be a great option. Then for a wedge to fit the hitch to your Reese Revolution the # SWW-06 would be the correct product.

  • American Made Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation with Great Jaw Design
  • Not all fifth wheel jaws are created equal. Some are designed to be lower priced but they will allow quite a bit more noise and "chucking", others are much nicer and will provide a much smoother ride quality. You should note that slider hitches in general have more moving parts so they make more noise/have more movement. Just going to a stationary hitch will make an improvement. For an American made fifth wheel hitch with an excellent jaw design we have the B and W Patriot # BWRVK3200...

  • Should the 16K or 18K B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch be Used for a 16,000 lb GVWR Trailer
  • You are correct. Even though the 16K B&W Patriot # BWRVK3200 is a great option, if the GVWR of your 5th wheel Montana 3120RL is 16,385 you do want to give yourself a safety margin. We typically recommend having at least 1,000 lbs - 2,000 lbs of "cushion" between the GVWR rating of your trailer the the hitch so the 18K Patriot # BWRVK3255 is the perfect solution.

  • B and W Patriot Fifth Wheel Hitch and Reese Rail kit for 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • The B and W Patriot hitch you mentioned part # BWRVK3200 is a great USA made hitch that is designed to fit industry standard fifth wheel rails. Any of the rail kits you mentioned will fit this hitch. The Reese kit part # RP56001-53 does fit and would be a great choice. It's an outboard rail kit which means it will install a bit easier than the other ones so it's a great choice. I attached an install video for the rail kit for you to check out as well.

  • Will the Lippert Turning Point Wedge fit B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch

That said I do recommend using a custom wedge for a better fit, the Custom Wedge for B&W Fifth Wheels # SWW-06; we have had a number of customers tell us that this wedge, which was designed for use with Reese Sidewinders, works perfectly with the similar Lippert Turning point. I have added links to video reviews of the Patriot and wedge for you to check out as well.

The custom install kits are the way to go as they minimize drilling (no frame drilling), and the cut install time down quite a bit as well. I really like the Reese rail kits as they aren't too expensive but you get a great kit and rail setup. So for your 2000 Ford F-350 I'd recomend the Reese kit part # RP50082-58...

This has a 16k capacity and a dual jaw setup that allows it to hold the king pin of the trailer very tightly which translates to a very quiet ride quality. It's also very easy to use and has a reputation as being one of the most reliable and long lasting fifth wheel hitches on the market.

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.

  • Can Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter be Used with B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6099 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit the factory prep fittings on your 2016 Ram 3500. Once mounted, it will provide you with industry-standard, above-bed base rails that are compatible with most fifth-wheel hitches, including your B&W Patriot # BWRVK3200. Your hitch will work perfectly with this adapter on your truck. I have attached a short video demonstration on this rail adapter that you can also check out.

  • Adapter to Allow Installation of B&W Patriot 5th Wheel BWRVK3200 in Ram 2500 with Factory Prep
  • In order to install your B&W Patriot 16K fixed 5th wheel hitch # BWRVK3200 in your Ram 2500 with factory puck system you will need the Reese adapter kit # RP30154. This adapters drops into the factory pucks and provides the equivalent of industry-standard base rails (ISRs) that will accept the Patriot. Note the fixed Patriot hitch is suitable for use in long bed pickups, such as the 8-foot bed Ram 2500. Also please note that the Reese adapter will add 2-inches of height to the hitch setup.

  • The B and W Patriot Hitches like part # BWRVK3200 are designed to fit industry standard fifth wheel rails. If the Pullrite hitch you had was designed to fit the industry standard rails then this hitch would fit the rails as well. I attached a picture that shows the dimensions of the rails.

  • Will B&W Fifth Wheel Hitch Work With 2016 Nissan Titan XD Fifth Wheel Adapter
  • I did some research on the fifth wheel adapter from Nissan for your 2016 Titan XD. I found out that when the adapter is inserted in the puck system in the bed of the Titan, it will give you base rails that can work with any industry standard fifth wheel hitch. The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # BWRVK3200 will work with these rails, but I recommend using a slider fifth wheel hitch. I recommend the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider, part # BWRVK3270. This...

  • Can Reese Sidewinder be Used with B and W Patriot Hitch
  • Yes, Sidewinders can be used with the B and W Patriot fifth wheel hitch like the part # BWRVK3200 because unlike the Companion the Patriot uses 4 attachment points at all corners of the hitch. The Companion only uses the center post for attachment and that's why its not compatible with the Sidewinder. For a wedge to lock the head of the hitch to the arm of the Sidewinder you would want the part # SWW-06.

  • Will B&W Patriot Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Industry Standard Rails
  • Yes, the B&W Patriot Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3200 fits industry standard rails, like the eese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit # RP50026-58. However, since your 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty has the 6-3/4 foot long bed, unless your trailer has a Sidewinder or Revolution pin box, I recommend using the B&W Patriot Slider # BWRVK3270. This hitch travels up to 12 inches giving you more turning clearance and help prevent your trailer from making contact with your truck.
