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.

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for the Ford Super Duty Prep Package with a 25,000 pound weight capacity.Now, this is a custom-fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford F250, F350, and F450 Super Duty trucks with an 8' bed and the factory rail kit. On a custom-fit part, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website and use our fit guide. Put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this will work for your application.Now, this 5th wheel hitch is designed to mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your 5th wheel trailer, and it is designed to work with the factory-installed 5th wheel towing prep package from Ford. This is a rail-free design, so it allows for full access to your truck bed when you remove it from your truck.If you look at the head, they do use the nice 1" thick dual jaws. It'll provide a 360-degree jaw to king pin contact.

Because of that, it'll give you less rattle, more security than the slide bar jaws. It's also a fully articulated head, which eases hook-up, helps limit chucking. Pivots front to back and side to side.The hand latching handle helps prevent binding. It helps to open the jaws. Basically what it does ...

Let me unpin it here. You can see it's very simple to release, even on unlevel terrain. As you slide it back, it'll open the jaws. Slide the king pin in, it'll automatically close it, and then you just lock it.Now, the hole, they include the pin and clip that you drop through and pin it, but the hole is large enough that if you want, you could put a padlock through there. The padlocks we do sell separately.

Also, when you put this together, the pivot arms that the head sits on, you can improve cab clearance because you can get 2" of front to back adjustment with the pivot arms, how you bolt them on, so if you attach the pivot arms to the base in two different positions, either fore or aft, you can place the king pin either 3" in front of the axle, or a king pin 1" in front of the axle.Also, when you bolt the pivot arms on, there's five rows of holes on the base, so you can also get three hitch height adjustments to fit your application. Hitch height is critical because when you tow with your 5th wheel, you want to make sure it's as level as possible with your tow vehicle, so depending where you mount it on, it'll get you a 16-3/4", 17-3/4", and 18-3/4", and hitch height is always measured from the top of the truck bed to the top of the hitch head.Now, this hitch head that rides on these pivot arms, on top of the pivot arms, they do have polyurethane bushings, so it makes it a nice, quiet, rattle-free ride.To remove, you could actually remove this in pieces, so one person could actually do it. You can take the two clips off right here, slide these pins out, and then lift up on these two arms. That'll release it, and you can take it off the pivot arms, and then take that off, and then the pivot arms and the base you could take off also, so it makes it easy for one person to remove it from the truck.Now, to install this into your truck, it's a quick, simple installation. Basically, you just drop these into your four receiver pucks.

They are built into your factory underbed rails. All you have to do is take your pin and clip off, rotate these handles out 90 degrees, and it'll rotate the tabs, and you'll do the same on that side. With them open on both sides, drop it into the pucks. Once they drop in, rotate those handles back 90 degrees, and it'll rotate the tabs to lock it into your pucks in the factory system. Then once your handles line up, just put your pin and clip in, it locks the handles in place. It's a simple installation and a simple removal.If you notice, it has a nice gray powder coat finish on it for corrosion resistance. It's a steel construction. This part is made in the U.S.A.A few specs on this. The application, again, is for 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty trucks with the factory-installed towing prep package. Gross towing weight capacity is 25,000 pounds. Tongue weight capacity is 6,250 pounds. We did mention the different hitch height adjustments. There's three of them, from 16-3/4 up to 18-3/4", and the last thing I want to show you is just to demonstrate how the king pin will slide into the jaws.I happen to have an example. This is what a king pin would look like on your 5th wheel. Basically, you just unhook your clip and your pin. Rotate your handle back, and you see the jaws open. Now, if you wanted to keep the jaws open, they do have a hole here that you could drop the pin and clip through and it'll keep that handle in the open position. But basically, when you go to install, your king pin will slide into these jaws, between them, and once it slides in, it'll push back on that handle, and then the jaws will wrap around, and then the handle will move up into the lock position. The holes line up. Take your pin and clip. Drop it right through there, clip it, and it's locked the handle. You're locked, all ready to go.When you're ready to unlatch, just remove your pin and clip, rotate your handle back. It'll release the jaws, and the king pin will slide right out.But that should do it for the review on the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for the Ford Super Duty Prep Package, and it has a 25,000 pound weight capacity.

Like always, easy to shop on-line, easy to check out, quick delivery, 5 star service. The hitch -- just finished minor assembly and took a test drive pulling my 43 ft 5th wheel. I love it. It's more than I needed but like the heavy duty hitch. Thanks very much. I would recommend this company and this product. David M 739656

First of all, I received everything a day earlier than expected. I asked the delivery guys to put it in the back of my truck; so I didn't even have to lift it up. The B&W Companion fifth wheel hitch installed so easily, and believe me I'm no mechanic by any means. I deliver RV's all over the country. The B&W Companion hitch is so easy to use and once hooked up I could hardly tell the trailer was there. Excellent hitch that I would recommend highly. 593585

The product has arrived as advertised. Easy to assemble with great instructions. Mounted it into a 2017 F350. Only minor adjustments needed to the castle nuts to get the right tension on the locking mechanisms. Tried the 1st pull with it day with excellent results. I am pulling a 2013 Montana 38 foot 5th wheel with a GVWR of 18,500. 518495

Assembled and installed the B&W 25k hitch and it looks amazing! Haven’t towed with it yet, but I’m sure it’ll be amazing as B&W always makes great hitches! One thing I wished B&W would annotate in their assembly instructions is the torque specs of the arm bolts, but that was easy to find online. On my 2018 F-350 long bed DRW I installed the arms to the max height at 18” and forward of the axle 3”. With that set up I’ll have to hook up and see if the fiver sits level and will clear the bed rails. I do like the ease of the lock jaw handle as it opens and closes with ease and the entire assembly and disassembly is pretty easy and quick, rather than my old previous Husky 26.5k sliding hitch that was outfitted for my previous 2014 F-250 SRW 6.5’ bed. 555050

Great instructions. Easy to install. The video tutorials on product reviews, installation instructions, etc. on etrailer.com have helped me do research and to choose the right product for my needs. This is the second B&W Companion hitch I have used to pull a 16,000lb GVWR 5th wheel trailer. The first was the companion to the turnover ball hitch, and this one is companion to the Ford OEM gooseneck prep system (puck connect). Just finished pulling our trailer home from the RV dealer. Worked great!!!! Lastly, the ordering process, shipment tracking and overall communication with etrailer staff is fantastic. 615173

The hitch was ordered online and featured fast shipping. I received it in 4 days in 2 boxes, both undamaged. I previously had a Pullrite 16k hitch in my previous truck. Bought a newer truck and started researching hitches a few months ago. Everyone was so positive about B&W and it is made in the USA so that sealed the deal for us. Daughter and I installed in my Ford puck system in about 45 min. Very easy to install and the operation of the hitch is simple. I liked my Pullrite just fine-experienced a slight bit of chucking. No chucking at all with this hitch. Etrailer had the best price on the hitch. 572834

Fast, free shipping. A great experience. Installed in a 2018 Ford F350 Limited crew cab dually 4x4 with the factory puck system. I first installed a Rough Country bed mat/and used a 3.25” hole saw to cut around the pucks. Looks great, hitches and unhitches easily, and feels much more solid than the superglide I had in my last truck (which was a short bed). 594043

Just installed my new B&W Companion 25k 5th wheel hitch into my 2019 F450. Hitch was incredibly easy to install with all the etrailer videos and supplied instructions. The hitch seems well built with high quality materials. It’s easy to adjust (height) and easy to couple the trailer. This is my second 5th wheel hitch I’ve owned and a definite upgrade! etrailer made the process painless with their awesome reviews and videos. Shipping was fast and free. 762302

Have yet to tow with my hitch but install was relatively easy. Hardest part was getting the two boxes into the bed of the F350. I used UPS labor, I asked and the delivery guy said sure he would help. Beyond that installing the spring clip for the leveler was a little challenge. Directions where clear and easily understood. Installed in a little over an hour. Will submit a follow up after my 5th wheel delivers. 760375

  • How Much Does the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3305 Weigh
    The shipping weight of the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3305 is 152 lbs so it will be just under that after you remove the packaging. Although it is still pretty hefty, the head unit part # BWRVC3006 can easily be removed off of the base unit # BWRVB3305 to help make moving the whole hitch more manageable. The head unit itself weighs in at about 70 lbs so it is almost half of the weight of the whole hitch. If you would like something that is a bit lighter then you can...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty Long Bed
    For your 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty Long Bed (8 foot) we have several options of fifth wheel trailer hitches. My favorite is the B & W fifth wheel hitch. They have a really nice finish to them that looks good in any truck, and the powder coat is very durable, so it resists scratches pretty well. The biggest reason for me favoring B & W hitches is the ease of install, out of every fifth wheel I have installed, B & W seems to be the most straight forward and install the smoothest. Which...

  • Difference Between B&W Companion 20 and 25K Rated 5th Wheel Hitch for 2020 Ford F450 w/ OEM Prep Pkg
    Both the B & W Companion 25K # BWRVK3305 and 20K # BWRVK3300 use the same hitch head. The difference between the two is that the 25K hitch uses a stronger beefier leg or base unit and therefore is rated for 5000 more lbs. Either hitch would work well for you (assuming that your 5th wheel weighs less than 20K) and both are fully compatible with the factory tow/prep pucks in your truck bed. If there's a chance you might go with a heavier 5th wheel in the future, you might consider going...

I'd set it up at the tallest height, 18-3/4 inches above the floor of the truck bed and 1 inch forward so the pin weight is almost centered over the rear axle. You can actually perfectly dial in the height if you're willing to do a little measuring. Put your 5th wheel up on the landing gear so that it's as close to level as you can get...

    Since you have an 8 foot bed, either way you set up your B&W # BWRVK3305 Companion pivot arms could be attached in either orientation. I'd recommend the forward position, which will distribute a bit more weight to the front truck axle. This helps make the truck's handling more stable. If you don't already have a 7-way trailer connector installed in the bed, you can install one using # 20110-010. I've linked you to a video showing the installation of the wiring harness.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation For a 2019 Ford F-350 Long Bed With Factory Pucks
    The best fifth wheel hitch option for the 2019 Ford F-350 long bed with a factory prep system that will provide you with the towing capacity you need is the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch part # BWRVK3305 with a 25K capacity. The B&W hitch, without question, is the best option because of it's 1" thick dual jaw that provides full contact with the king pin to prevent rattling compared to other noisy fifth wheel options. The articulating head prevents chucking for a more comfortable...

  • How to Determine if Reese Elite RE25 Will Fit with 2019 Ford F-350 with Higher Bed Side Walls
    The OEM puck locations are the same for both your 2011 Ford F-450 and your 2019 Ford F-350 so the Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitch 30143 will definitely fit in your newer pickup. Recently pickups have tended to have higher side walls for the bed so you will want to make sure that the walls are no taller than 22" as you need at least 5" of clearance for your 5th wheel trailer and your 5th wheel hitch has a max height adjustment of 17". Please note that you may need to adjust the height...

  • Which Arm/Height Position for B and W Companion Hitch is Good Starting Point
    I attached a picture that has all of the available positions you can use for varying heights with the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3305. It's best to measure first to determine which height you'd need, but if not then I'd go with the medium height position with the arms fursthest from the cab for a position that will be the most likely to fit the best.

  • Comparing B&W Companion OEM and Reese Elite 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ford F-350
    You are definitely correct that both the B&W Companion # BWRVK3305 and the Reese Elite # RP30871 are fantastic 5th wheel hitches that will work well on your 2019 Ford F-350 but I do recommend going with the B&W Companion # BWRVK3305. The B&W Companion series is considered by many to be the best 5th wheel hitches on the market. It features a superior 1 inch thick dual jaw design that provides an excellent connection to the trailer along a quieter ride. Both the B&W and Reese hitch feature...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ford F-350 with Factory Prep Package
    Congratulations on your new truck! For your 2019 Ford F-350 that is equipped with the factory prep package I highly recommend the B&W OEM Companion 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3305. The Companion series hitches are considered by many to be the best on the market and this particular model is designed to drop right into the factory pucks in your truck bed. The hitch features 1 inch thick dual jaws that provide a 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact. What this will do on top of providing an extremely...

  • Is a Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Needed for a 2012 Keystone Montana 3402RL on a 2019 F-350 Short Bed
    I did some research on your 2012 Keystone Montana 3402RL and it looks like the trailer is equipped with a tapered nose which will allow for up to 79 degrees of turning clearance on a truck with a 6-1/2' long bed according to Keystone. The short bed on your 2019 Ford F-350 is actually a bit longer than the standard short bed (6-3/4' long) so you should be just fine with a fixed 5th wheel hitch but there is a formula I have attached for you that will allow you to determine whether or not...

  • Comparing 5th Wheel Hitches for 2017 Ford F-350 with Factory Rail Kit Puck System Compatibility
    The Curt A25 # C16036 is less sturdy than the other hitches you mentioned, but many people really like them. My recommendation between the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Wiring Harness # RP30871 and the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package # BWRVK3305 is the latter. The B&W Companion Hitch has the more stable base and the dual jaw design is better at resisting the jarring and chucking you mentioned. The jaws are 1 inch thick...

  • Can a 20K 5th Wheel Hitch be Used to Tow a 20K Toy Hauler
    Great question! Although a 5th wheel hitch rated for 20K can tow up to 20K we highly recommend using a 5th wheel hitch that is rated about 1K - 2K over the GVWR of your 5th wheel trailer. This gives you a safety margin and will help keep your hitch from prematurely wearing down from normal use. The only time you would be able to safely use the 20K hitch is if you didn't load your trailer up to the 20K capacity. If your toy hauler is 20K then I recommend going with either the B&W Companion...

  • Compatibility of B&W 5th Wheel Hitches with 2017 Ford F-250 4WD Super Duty
    For a short-bed truck such as your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty that has the factory 5th wheel; prep package the B&W Companion hitch you need to use is the slider version, part # BWRVK3370. But in the event that your 5th wheel trailer has a pivoting Sidewinder/Revolution pin box then you can use the fixed version of the hitch # BWRVK3305. Both of these hitches require that the truck have the special factory 5th wheel prep kit with pucks in the truck bed that serve as the attachment points....

  • B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Compatibility with Ford Factory Gooseneck Hole on 2019 Ford F-350
    The B&W Companion hitch like # BWRVK3500 is not compatible with the round gooseneck in any of the factory underbed systems. The square adapter give the hitch stability and support preventing left to right movement of the hitch that a round hole obviously won't be able to do. If you already have the Companion hitch, then you can use the hitch head and simply get the factory prep compatible base. For the fixed hitch base # BWRVB3300 and for the sliding hitch base # BWRVB3370. If...

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Factory Prep System
    The very best hitch for the Ford Factory Prep Package in my opinion is the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package - 25,000 lbs # BWRVK3305. This hitch fits directly into the factory pucks for a very clean and custom fit. The base can be installed independent of the head for an easier transition in and out of your truck and the 1 inch thick dual jaws give you the best king pin contact for less jarring and chucking when towing. The cam action latching handle...

  • Determining 5th Wheel Towing Capacity of 2018 Ford F-350
    The note that you're seeing on Ford's towing chart for your 2018 F-350, which states that the "gooseneck tow rating is shown, 5th-wheel tow rating limited to 5th-wheel hitch rating of 18,000 pounds" certainly does seem to be referring to the 18K limit on the OEM hitch itself. I'm not sure why the truck would have a higher gooseneck towing limit than a 5th wheel limit, so it makes sense to me that a higher-rated 5th wheel hitch would allow you to tow up to the listed gooseneck capacity you...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Setup For 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty With Factory Tow Prep
    I recommend B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch part # BWRVK3305 for the 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty prep package. The Companion is designed to drop down into the factory puck system in the bed of your Ford. The Companion is the best option because of its durable construction. The 1" thick jaw provides 365 degree king pin contact which helps to eliminate the chucking and rattling noise you may sometimes experience with a looser king pin connection. If you need a Gooseneck ball, I recommend...
