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.

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 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

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

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

Bought this B&W hitch from etrailer about a week ago. They were very helpful, I was trying to decide between 2 different hitch’s. We talked about the pros and cons of each. The hitch arrived just as they said it would, 4 days very fast. Hitch was fairly easy to put together, directions were good. I have not used the hitch yet just waiting for Mother Nature. I have used etrailer before and would highly recommend them they are very knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. 614613

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

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

Perfect hitch for the ram puck system. Plug and play, no adjustments needed. Keep a can of lithium grease and a grease gun handy. Recommend a lube plate too. Easy to maintain and keep clean. Fire under a bed cover too. 661566

The hitch is great except that it has a tendency to not lock into place when putting it in the rear turning position. Sometimes needs to be slammed into position to get the handle to lock. Its very heavy! Must have two people to move the lower base section. I have a friend that has the Curt hitch and this hitch is much better in my opinion. It pulls a 38' Mobile Suite. 635218

Well built, straight forward assembly and installation for the Ford puck system. I put an after market rubber mat I and cut 5 holes in it for the mounts in the truck bed. The plates have enough stand off to more than allow for the thickness of the mat. I do wish the frame had 4 lifting eyes build in, I can use a hoist to get it into place in the pickup bead. Are the bolts on the slider frame long enough to allow for adding a plate to them? I'd hate to mess up the finish on the hitch 639324

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

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


I've had this for about a year. Only have about 2,000 miles of use with a 13,000 lbs 5th wheel travel trailer. It is still like new. Jaws are tight, no rattles with or without the trailer attached. I use a nylon guide plate, to keep things clean. The only issue is the slider will not unlatch from the locked position with the trailer attached. Unlatch and slides fine when not loaded. Just haven't made the time to talk to B&W about this. The base is a heavy bugger, and fits snug in the receptical. I've lifted it in and out myself, but not a smart idea. Overall I would buy again. For our use, where we need the whole bed the majority of time it is an easy solution. 608616

Youll want to make sure that the slider rails are lubricated. Also keep in mind that if the truck and trailer are at different angles and theres a lot of pressure placed on the sliding mechanism, it can bind.

New to 5th wheeling and already I am the envy of all my 5th wheeling friends. It is a custom hitch for my 2015 Ram3500. My truck was purchased factory prepped for the custom hitch. Besides the initial setup, 10 minutes gets the hitch in or out. The head detaches but the base is still heavy and awkward for 1 to handle. I have done the procedure by myself without assistance a few times so far. Built myself a table on wheels that I can roll up to the back of my truck and set the hitch on. I use plywood on the truck bed to slide the hitch on once out of the truck bed anchors. The lower shelve has room for my genset along with other items. The hook up procedure is an ease as the hitch pivots both ways. 316545

All though this hitch is not light (which I knew it would be beefy), it was really simple to install. In all it took about 4 hours to assemble and complete. I am not an novice to assembling heavy and intricate machinery. Reading the instructions completely is a must before starting any process. It looks and works great. The puck system makes it easier to install. And removing the 5th wheel when it is not in use just takes removing two keeper pins and lifting on the release handles. It did take longer to receive the hitch after I ordered it (about a eight days). 183013

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


Received my B*W Companion 3600 hitch today through UPS, it arrived in three boxes, one box had the base unit for my 2018 Ram 3500 puck system, one box had the two side pivot arms and the bolt kit package for the coupler head unit and the third box contained the coupler head unit. All the boxes arrived in good condition, many of the reviews that I read said the boxes were destroyed upon arrival and I was relieved that the hitch and boxes arrived in perfect condition. After watching a Youtube video from Big Truck Big RV "JD" (on the companion hitch) who is a partner of etrailer I decided to purchase from etrailer vs other suppliers due to the reviews and video that etrailer is the best to buy from and they are available to answer and assist if needed. It took me about 30 to 40 minutes to unbox, assemble and install the hitch, very easy to do. I mounted the side pivot arms directly center over the rear axle and at its lowest setting 17". This companion hitch is replacing a Demco slider hitch that I Purchased in Feb of 2019 (totally dissapointed in the Demco from day one hence already replaced). I have not towed with the companion hitch yet as it arrived today, I will update my review once I have some time on the hitch pulling my 38' triple axle 18,000lb 5er, I have a upcoming trip and looking forward to testing the companion hitch. So far I am impressed with the quality and it looks great too, the paint on the hitch appears to be very good quality and there are no bare spots, all the welds look of high quality. Sa far I give it 5 stars. 679455

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

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


I owned another brand of hitch for many years and always thought it was OK. When I bought our new 2015 Ram 3500, I ordered it with the 5th wheel prep kit - which meant it had the pucks for the hitch. After do some Internet research I decided on the B&W Companion hitch. All I can say is WOW! Now this is a HITCH. The hitch head separates from the base for easy storage. The head is not that heavy but the base is a beast. Here's what I love about this hitch: 1. The fit and finish on the hitch is great - the welds are excellent, the paint finish is great, it's obvious when you see this hitch that it is well built. 2. The hitch head is easy to remove. 3. The hitch head has a grease zirk for lubing. 4. The hitch has double locking jaws that give a great secure fit around the king pin. 5. The hitch is quiet - I mean really quiet. It might get noisy after a few years of use but right now it's extremely quiet. 6. The base is easy to install into the truck bed pucks. The instructions included helped me to adjust one of the puck locking pins easily. 7. The hitch is easy to adjust fore/aft and up/down. Not all hitches will allow you to adjust the fore/aft position of the hitch head. This is really a great feature. All in all a great hitch. Perhaps overkill for a 12,000 pound trailer but I like overkill in things like this. Highly recommend the hitch. 295768

I installed this on a 2016 Dodge Ram 3500 4X4 Crew Cab today. Very easy to assemble. Had to make a slight adjustment to one of the pivot bases. Tight fit in the puck system which is not a bad thing. Product is of very good quality, super strong and made in the USA. High quality power coating on hitch. I highly recommend this hitch. Great price, and fast delivery. 242449

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


Purchased the BWRVK3600 Fifth Wheel Hitch a couple of weeks ago. This is a great product that arrived on time as stated. Assembly Instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I took my time but the whole assembly process only took about a half hour. I installed the assembled hitch into a 2014 Dodge Ram 3500, that has the factory prep towing package. The base sat into the puck style system with no trouble. Just some minor adjustments to the latches to get them to fit snugly as per the instructions. I used it to tow my new 40 ft. tow hauler home a week ago. Hooking up was so easy it slid right into the locking jaws with ease. In fact it went so smooth that I started to skid the RV on its landing gear. This fifth wheel hitch preformed beautifully during the tow. Taking off and stopping went very smoothly with no jerking motion. Backing into the RV site and unhooking was also very easy even having to jack knife the trailer into the site in uneven ground. As soon as I released the locking lever, released the parking brake, and put the transmission in neutral, the truck just rolled ahead with ease. I am really impressed with the whole process of assembly, installation, and operation of this fifth wheel hitch. It is a little heavy, but it is built that way for a purpose, the quality of workmanship is top notch. I look forward to years of service out of this fifth wheel hitch.Being made in America is the big plus. Thank you to B & W for a great product. 194163

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

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


Overall quality of the product is excellent, very easy to hitch and unhitch. A couple of minor issues that would seem to be easy to correct, and would be consistent with such a high quality unit: The instructions were not too informative about how to attache the product arms to the base: it is quite awkward, even with two people. After completion, it would have been much easier to invert the base on a stand, and attach the arms 'upside down'. Having this in the instructions would have saved a lot of time and effort. The little spring clip that keeps the hitch head at a slight angle towards the trailer looks like an after thought, and here again, the instructions were weak. It indicates that the clip should be tapped on with a hammer, but this is, in fact, quite difficult to do. A better attachment system is called for, the only weak item on the entire hitch. 455680

Great Hitch, secure latching and quiet on the road. (No Chucking, unlike the bolt on hitch in my last truck). It is relatively easy to remove and re-install - I'm 67! I have a small problem Unhitching when there is any pressure between vehicles, the jaws will not let loose unless holding the release lever open as I pull away.

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

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


I own a RAM 3500 with an 8ft bed. The truck came with the B&W gooseneck base. I was hesitant on buying the companion because my previous 5th wheel hitches were installed on ISD. The companion is a great product and very easy instructions and installation. What I like most about the hitch is that the base can be swapped out for a slider if you have a smaller truck bed. Great quality, made in the US and easy installation. Etrailer had the lowest price and customer service was terrific. 343171

  • Recommended B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty With Factory Rails
  • The recommended B&W Companion for your 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty with the factory puck system will depend on what bed size you have as well as the amount you are looking to tow.

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-250 with Factory Pucks & Lippert Turning Point Trailer Pin Box
  • For your 2018 Ford F-250, you are correct that with the Lippert Turning Point Pin box on your trailer you do not need a sliding 5th wheel hitch for your 6-3/4 foot bed. The best option to give you the most height adjustment is the B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package # BWRVK3300 for a 20K capacity or # BWRVK3305 for a 25K capacity. Both of these hitches offer height adjustment between 16-3/4 - 18-3/4 inches. There is only one hitch that is slightly taller...

  • 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.
