Quiet, Secure Ride

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 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.


Companion OEM Base Diagram

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. 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.


B&W Companion OEM Handles OpenB&W Companion OEM Handles Closed

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.

The B&W 5 th. wheel hitch is exactly what I needed for my F350 with the factory towing and hitch package. It arrived 1 day early and the free shipping made it a great deal compared with the large chain stores. It was easy to assemble and fits perfectly in my ford. I haven't towed with it yet but don't see any issues. The nice thing with the hitch for the ford is that with the turn of 4 handles, the hitch comes right out of the truck and you have a completely flat bed again. Thank you etrailer for you great service ....... 448120

I have used the B & W hitch for a year and it has performed flawlessly. Have taken two long trips and many short ones and have never been disappointed with it. It is one product that I can say I am totally pleased with it and you cant say that about too many products these days !!!!

This 5th wheel hitch works beautifully! Make sure you have the OEM puck system before ordering as I had to have a dealership install the puck system. The hitch puts together extremely easily and provides a very smooth ride. Looks clean and operates flawlessly. Love how this system can be removed at any time so I don’t lose my bed space. Works very well with an 8 ft bed. I would recommend this hitch to anyone! 744682

This is a quality product. It arrived quickly, the instructions were clear and in a very short time i was ready to pull our 5th wheel. We have not had any issues with the product. The fact that it is a two piece hitch sure makes installation/removal a fairly easy job. 585237

Best Hitch on the market if you have ford factory gooseneck prep system. Heavy Duty, and secure. No more chucking back and forth. Would recommended 100 times over. Customer service was super, and free shipping was awesome. Arrived a day earlier than anticipated. Etrailer is top notch 198684

Great Fifth Wheel Hitch. Came with a sharp edge that obviously occurred at the factory however, I filed off and re painted. Other than that, I'm totally satisfied and would recommend this hitch to all. A "No Brainer". B & W is simply the best. 573981

5 Stars - Ease of Installation 2 Stars - Quality of material 2 Stars - Durability in operation 4 Stars - Quietness in operation 2 Stars - Packaging to prevent damage **Could not see until installed and looking at the the hitch from the tailgate, the right side of the receiver plate was bent down. I was in a bind and had to use the hitch so chances of returning are nil. It was fairly quiet especially on interstate driving. The high point where the hitch bends down put stress on the "good" side scraping off the paint. I do not have to move my RV for a few months, so I will probably scrap the B&W hitch and purchase the Reese Hitch 27.5 which I saw today at my local Ford Dealership. It looks more durable and stronger than the BWRVK3300. Give 5 Stars to etrailer.com, this was a smooth transaction; shipping was great and received on time. 497564

Super fast shipping, came in on time. Convenient 2 boxed packages. Heavy! I started installing around 5:30pm, was hooking up to 5th wheel and testing at 7:15pm... Couple of interruptions would have been quicker. My Rep, Chris W. was extremely helpful, pleasure working with her! Whole unit is quality IMHP... Being safety freak I added some extra lock washers & nuts to flange plate bolts... Bolt sticks out roughly 3/4 inch after torqueing to 80lbs. per instructions. Added washer and nut to complete very solid connection... I could not be more happy or impressed with whole operation... Feel much better about cost now that I have laid hands on it...

We just recently ordered B&W Hitch for our 2017 F350 Dually Long Bed. The process was very smooth. We ordered the Hitch, and we received it within 2 days. It was well packaged and would recommend the hitch. We have not towed with it as of yet, but I can tell its already going to be better than my old Curt Q16 Hitch, Hands Down. Thanks for making this process smooth and Customer Service was great with answering all my questions. Only recommendations to make the install go smoother would be to include the Hex Head Bolt wrench to tighten the handle. 349443

I installed my B&W Companion into the 5th wheel truck bed package, knowing after viewing several YouTube videos, that it should work just fine, without a slider type. My 2017 Ford F350 Super Duty 6.7L Diesel crew cab short box (6'-9") with our 2018 #3120RL Montana 5th wheel trailer work great with the B&W Companion. I estimate our max turn backing angle at 85°(don't know why I'd ever cut that tight anyway). A 5er front nose will need a radius and be tapered to make this work so great in my opinion. The Companion mounts easily into the puck system and splits into upper and lower halves for easy lifting. See my attached pictures. 483456


Comments
After a season of many trips, we are pleased with the B&W Companion hitch, since our 5er has a radius front end, we have plenty enough room to back into our camping sites. The hitch itself articulates in all four axis very well and is quite silent will running.

On a small note locks would be nice part of package.Towing is a breeze and I will definitely recommend etrailer and b&w hitch to all.

World Largest Mobile Kitchen B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs - BWRVK3300 is the most innovative towing products I have seen in a long time. It fit into the Ford hitch system with no problems. It is a shame that Ford, Chevy, and Dodge cannot have a universal mounting like the receiver hitches so that they fit all trucks. It is designed to be either directly above axle or 4 inches ahead. 273767

Shipping was fast! Paid for the 3 day but it came a day sooner than scheduled. The hitch was easy to install on my 2017 F-350 with pre-installed fifth wheel pkg (8’ bed). I also tow a 36’ keystone carbon toyhauler and I use the middle setting for the hitch and it sits level. Hitch is quiet and makes the ride smooth! 488834

I've had several fifth wheel hitches over the past few years and I've finally found a keeper. Great hitch, really quiet and I trust it completely. I really like how you can easily disassemble it into two pieces to remove it from the bed of your truck, no large pin or bolt to remove the head just two handles which makes it really easy to handle. 821049

This is my second B&W fifth wheel hitch. First one was a slider(gooseneck companion) and performed flawlessly. These hitches are very easy to use, look great and stout. The fact that it's American made with American steel gives you the warm fuzzy too. I got this one for the puck system on my new F350 to pull my 34ft toy hauler. Haven't had a chance to tow with it yet, but not even worried about it. Definitely lighter than the slider hitch, only requires one person to lift instead of a crane. etrailer came through again. Prompt shipping and delivery even during this "pandemic". They're always the first place I check when I need stuff for my truck or trailer. And all the review and installation videos are fantastic. 791577

  • Comparing B&W Companion 20K and 25K 5th Wheel Hitches for 2019 Ford F-450 with OEM Pucks
    There actually are no drawbacks to using the 25K B&W Companion # BWRVK3305 instead of the 20K B&W Companion # BWRVK3300. The price is higher, yes, but the 25K only has a shipping weight that is 10 more pounds than the 20K. The hitch head is actually very easy to remove which just the weight of the hitch in about half making it little easier to install/remove. Since both fit the OEM puck system on your 2019 Ford F-450 Super Duty I recommend going with the 25K for the exact reasons...

  • Best 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2019 Ford F-350 with Factory Towing Prep Package
    I recommend the B&W Companion for a fifth wheel hitch in your 2019 Ford F-350. The thick dual jaw design reduces the rattle between the hitch and king pin and is regarded as one of the best hitches around. They're also made in the USA. If your truck is a long bed then you can use the fixed hitch, part # BWRVK3300. If you have the short bed you may need the sliding version, part # BWRVK3370. It just depends on your trailer.

    Since you have a Lippert Turning Point pin box on your Reflection 5th wheel you can safely use a stationary 5th wheel hitch. We recommend using a sliding 5th wheel hitch with a short bed truck when the trailer has a standard pin box because there is usually a clearance issue with the trailer making contact with the truck cab on tight turns.

  • Does B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch BWRVK3300 Require Lubrication Before Use
    When installing your new B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3300 the only lubrication required is a light application of standard automotive chassis grease like # L11316 on the hitch jaws and the top surface of the hitch head; alternatively you can use a lube plate like # HT34914 on the king pin instead of grease on the hitch head. After about 6 months of use you will want to grease the saddle through the grease zerk fitting. Please refer to the linked instructions for more information.

  • B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch Fit For 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty with Ford Towing Prep Package
    Definitely a smart move to ensure the proper fit to ensure you get the correct B&W Companion fifth wheel hitch for your 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty with the Ford fifth wheel prep package. The only thing you didn't say is if you had a short or long bed so I'll give you the options for both. - 2019 Ford F-350 with 6-3/4 Foot Bed: B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w Slider for Ford Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3370 - 2019 Ford F-350 with 8 Foot Bed: B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch...

  • Availability of B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch for Factory Pucks on 2020 Ford F-250
    Yes, for your 2020 Ford F-250 (congrats on the new truck by the way!) we have either the B&W 20K OEM Companion # BWRVK3300 or the 25K model # BWRVK3305. Both options are designed to drop right into the factory pucks on your bed for an easy to install (and remove) system and feature the same robust 1" thick dual jaw design and non-binding handle that you grew to love with your previous model. I have attached a short video review below that you can check out as well. Now if you happen...

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Nose is Too High When Towing With 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty
    That's a fair question but there isn't a "too high" in regards to inches when towing with the B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package # BWRVK3300. It is ideal to be totally level because your ride will be much easier, the trailer won't sway back and forth as much and you will have an easier time connecting and disconnecting. It will just be a better towing experience if you can possibly get level. You may be able to do that by adjusting your Reflection's pin...

  • Correct B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2019 Ford F-250 6-3/4 Bed and Revolution Pin Box
    The correct B&W Companion for your 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty with the OEM Prep Package is the part # BWRVK3300. This is noted in our fitguide as a fit for the 8' bed (as we recommend a slider for a short bed) but since the 6-3/4' bed and the 8' bed for a 2019 F-250 have the same footprint for the pucks you can still use this for your application. Just be sure to also use the Custom Wedge # SWW-06 so that your Reese Revolution pin box will be locked out at the jaws. Attached is an installation...

  • Can I Use a B&W Companion Hitch With a Plastic Bed Liner on 2017 Ford F-350?
    Yes. You will either need to remove or cut out the space that your B&W Companion Hitch # BWRVK3300 sits in so that it can have complete contact with the truck bed surface; you could also switch to a spray in liner if you wanted to make sure you had something in there for when your hitch wasn't installed. The reasoning behind this is that the plastic bed liner is prone to moving around which could cause damage to the bolts that attached into the OEM puck system on your 2017 Ford F-350...

  • What Does Reese SWW-06 Custom Wedge Do Opposed to Universal Wedge
    The Reese fifth wheel wedge part # SWW-06 and the same part number you'd find anywhere else is the exact same wedge made by Reese. Since you have a B and W Companion hitch this wedge will smooth out your ride quality and will make connecting/disconnecting your truck from your trailer as easy possible.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Ford F-350 with Hitch Prep
    I really like the B and W Companion hitches so for your 2016 Ford F-350 that has the hitch prep package I would recommend the part # BWRVK3300. The Companion hitches are often referred to as the best fifth wheel hitches around so I would highly recommend this hitch. This hitch will work well with the Trailair pin box your trailer has as well. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Placement of Pivot Arms for Long Bed Truck Using B&W Hitch BWRVK3300
    Since your 2019 F-350 is a long bed you'll be best off starting with the pivot arms of your B&W Hitch # BWRVK3300 installed in the positions that place the hitch head furthest forward, closest to the cab. To do this install the pivot arms with their straight side facing the cab as shown in the linked diagram. This will keep the kin pin (and pin weight) toward the leading edge of the rear axle for better weight distribution across both axles. After making some test turns you'll know if you...

  • Replacement Base for B&W Companion Hitch for Installation in GM Factory Prep Kit
    You can use B&W Replacement Base # BWRVB3705 to convert your 20K or 25K Companion 5th wheel hitch from the Ford factory setup to the GM factory setup. The hitch head assembly will transfer right over to the new base and give you the same hitch as part # BWRVK3705 (25K) or # BWRVK3700 (20K) which are the GM versions. If you also need a 7-way wiring kit for the truck bed you can use kit # 20110.

  • Where Should Pivot Arms be Placed for B&W Companion on 2015 Ford F-350
    Realistically, you can position the pivot arms of the B&W Companion # BWRVK3300 3" in front of the axle (closest to the cab) or 1" in front of the axle (farthest from the cab) when installing it in the factory puck system of your 2015 Ford F-350 and the difference you will notice is minimal, if you notice it at all. The placement of the pivot arms has more to do with clearance for your trailer than steering control or load distribution, but no matter what setting you use, the Companion...

  • Would Capture Plate of Pin Box Need to Be Removed to Use B&W Companion Hitch for 2017 Ford F-350
    If they welded the capture plate of your Pullrite hitch to the pin box you would either have to remove the capture plate or replace the pin box. Typically these plates aren't welded on. If you can find me the pin box model name and number I can help you pick out a new pin box if needed as well. I attached a page that has all of the pin boxes we carry. The Companion Hitch part # BWRVK3300 is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Ford F-350 with factory rail kit though and would be a great option....
