Notes:

  • Due to the size of this item, it ships via freight.
  • This fifth-wheel trailer hitch is not compatible with Sidewinder or Revolution king pins. Do not use any device that changes the pivot point of your trailer's king pin with this hitch.

Quiet, Secure Ride

The 1" thick jaw on the Companion 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 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".


Built-In Slider

Most often used on trucks with 6' beds, a slider helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a slider to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.


The slider that is built into the base of the Companion allows for 12" of fore and aft travel to give you the clearance you need.


Installation of the B&W Companion OEM Slider

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 some additional cab clearance.


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.


B&W Companion OEM Ram Feet

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.

Video Transcript for B and W Fifth Wheel - Sliding Fifth Wheel - BWRVK3370 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the B&W Companion Dual Jaw OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, with the slider, for the Ford towing prep package and has a 20,000 pound weight capacity. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty Trucks with the factory installed towing prep package and, on a custom fit part, I always like to recommend that you go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year, model of vehicle and it'll show you if this will work for your application. Now, this fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. It is designed to work with the factory installed fifth wheel towing prep package from Ford. Has this nice built-in slider here which will provide clearance, give you 12 inches front to back which is required for your sharp bed truck to turn safely at slow speeds. It is a nice rail-free design, allows for full access to your truck bed when it is removed from the truck. Up on the hitch head here, it has the one inch thick dual jaws which will provide a nice 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact.

That'll give you less rattle, more security than slide bar jaws. A handle right here to open the jaws, this is like cam action 00:01:02 latching handle, helps prevent binding. It's very simple to release, even on unlevel terrain. Show you, just pop the pin and clip off, that'll unlock it and then you just rotate the handle back and the jaws will open. It's ready to install the kingpin in. Now, when a kingpin slides in there, it'll push up against the back of the dual jaws which will automatically close them and rotate that handle right into position.

Then you can take your pin and clip, lock it into place. Now the hole here where the pin and clip goes is large enough that if you want extra security, you could put a padlock through there. We do sell the padlock separately on our website. The hitch head itself is a fully articulating hitch head. Ease this hook up, helps limit chucking.

Pivots front to back and the plate up here will go side to side. Now, when you do install this hitch head onto the slider, there's pivot arms that it will rest on. What's nice is at the top of those pivot arms, it has polyurethane bushings which gives you a nice, quiet, rattle-free ride that the hitch head sits on. When you install these pivot arms to your slider, there's five rows of holes on each side and there's four bolts on the pivot arms. When you go to bolt them, it gives you a range of three different hitch height settings. Now, the hitch height is critical because when you tow your fifth wheel, you want it to be as level as possible with the tow vehicle. When you do install this, it'll give you a range of 17 inches to 19 inches and that's measured from the truck bed to the top of the hitch plate right here. This is a very quick, simple installation.

When you install this, it just drops into the four receiver pucks that are built into your factory underbed rails. All you have to do to do that is go to the side here, pop the pin and clip, rotate the handle out of quarter for turn, there's two handles, two on that side. Once you do that, it rotates the tabs there and allow it to drop into those pucks. Once it drops in, just close the handles and that'll lock it into the pucks in your truck bed. Take the pin and clip, run it through the handles, clip it and it's all locked into place. Simple as that. If you notice, this is a nice gray powder coated steel which is corrosion resistant. It is made in the USA. A few specs on this. Again, the application is 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty Trucks with the factory installed towing prep package. Gross towing weight capacity is 20,000 pounds. Vertical tongue weight capacity is 5,000 pounds. We had mentioned your hitch height range is 17 inches to 19 inches. The travel of the slider is 12 inches front to back. The overall footprint on the slider is about 36 inches wide and the depth is about 32 and 5/16th of an inch deep. Now, I do want to demonstrate the hitch head and the slider just to show you how they operate. On the hitch head again, we'll pop the pin and clip off, open up the handle. You see the jaws open up, and this would be like the kingpin on your fifth wheel. When this slides in, now with this being attached to the fifth wheel, there will be more weight of course but it'll push in. It'll push up against the back of those jaws and you'll see with extra weight, it would push that completely closed. The jaws wrap around and you just take your pin and clip, drop it, lock it into place, locks the handle and your kingpin is all locked into the hitch head. Now, if you go to move the slider to get the extra clearance, when you're towing, this is in the locked towing position so the hitch head is closest to the tow vehicle. If you get into a campground where you got to make some sharp turns, you want to gain an extra clearance so this will give you that 12 inches. To do that, rotate that handle into the unlocked position and you'll notice here, as this moves, as you move, you can see it goes to the maneuvering position. Once it gets as far as it can, it'll automatically flip the handle down, lock it into place and then you can do your sharp turns and have the clearance. Now, when you're done and you're ready to get back on the road to tow, you want to move this closer to the cab, again, just unlock it and then the movement will slide this all the way back. You can see the handle flips down, locks it into towing position. Simple as that. That should do it for the review on the B&W Companion Dual Jaw OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, with the slider, for the Ford towing prep package and a 20,000 pound weight capacity.

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

Really like the build quality of this hitch. The heavy built structure makes me feel more comfortable towing my RV down the road. The weight of the hitch would also be the only negative I have found as removing from the truck can be quite a chore. 620465

I received the new Companion hitch for my F350 in two separate boxes. The shipping company was very thorough in providing updates. Regarding the Companion hitch...I was a bit nervous purchasing online without seeing one, but very happy with fit, function and quality of product. Puck system fit perfectly and only required a very minor adjustment to one puck! The only design change I would make (and I already completed) would be to make holes for puck levers large enough for a padlock. Other than this modification, this is a great design and the entire purchase process was perfect. 612859

Couldn't beat the etrailer price, and shipping was crazy fast. Got the hitch in just a few days. Install was a piece of cake, the only challenging part was the sheer weight of this thing. A helper is definitely needed. Hooking up my new 5th wheel was nice and easy. Way easier than my gooseneck trailer. Pulls like a dream, no clunking or noises. Sliding to the rearward position for maneuvering went really well too. Looking forward to putting a lot of miles on my new camper and hitch! 608452

The hitch works well. It is pretty easy to put in and take out of the truck using the factory puck system. It is heavy since it is built so well. If you have a cherry picker it makes installation and removal easier. I have found that if you place two pieces of short 2 x 4's on the truck bed and place the hitch on them it can be moved into place without scratching the bed then remove the boards and secure the hitch in place. 497290

The quality of the B & W products speak volumes. This product wasn't available when I purchased my 2014 Ford Super Duty with Ford's Puck System. I'm so glad that I have a B & W in my truck bed now. In my opinion, it's the best 5th wheel slider available, to date. Thanks to E Trailer, I was able to purchase it at an excellent price. 619755

This is a great hitch. Fit nicely into the OEM factory prep frame and sets securely. The action is smooth and solid and the slide lever moves easily. My last one could take two men and a boy sometimes. Price is unbeatable. My fiver dealer couldn't match it as his cost was more than I paid. It is a bit heavy, but that's what I was looking for. I just set up a hoist in the garage so I can remove it by myself. I would recommend it to friends with the notation they'd be crazy to to choose anything else. 528987

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


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

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

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

I am very pleased with this hitch, it fit into the prepped bed of my 2016, 2500 Ram perfectly. This is one heavy duty hitch, made very well. The people at B&W definitely know how to make a hitch. It is heavy (weight wise) but I use a overhead winch to lift in and out of my truck bed, works great. I wanted the best and with this hitch I got it. 489918

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


Comments

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.

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.

Big thanks to the etrailer team for professionalism, friendly, courtesy and responsive customer service. They were with me from the time I placed my order till delivery. I ordered a B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch which was delivered in 2 days. The shipping box was torn open during shipping which resulted in the paint on the base being rubbed to bare metal. Rose and Cathy were very supportive in making it right. Another base was shipped and double boxed the second time. They took great care of me and I appreciate that. I will definitely order from etrailer again and highly recommend them. Great prices to boot. Thanks again to the etrailer team. I will provide product feedback once installed. 379067

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.

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

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


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

Purchased this per recommendation from Jared. This thing was a direct bolt in for my truck as he said it would be. Took me less than an hour to assemble and install. This hitch is incredibly heavy duty for my purposes of towing my new 5th wheel trailer. This thing is going to be instrumental over the next few years for me. Even took a picture with it looking good in my truck! 356821

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

Still the best 5th wheel hitch on the market. Not a single problem.

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


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

I ordered the hitch online sight unseen. I rarely do this but after reading all the reviews on the hitch, and not just on etrailer.com, I didn't think I could go wrong. Almost every review I read about this hitch was between 4-5 star positive. I checked it over pretty thoroughly via pictures and being a mechanically inclined person, It looked well built from what I could see. My only concern is about the soft sleeve bushings and how long they will the last. Also, can you purchase replacement ones if they wear out. I haven't checked into it yet and it may not be an issue at anyway. I can say though that I am impressed with etrailer.com's service. Their communication throughout the whole process has been great and I even received confirmation today, both from my wife and an etrailer.com email, that the hitch has arrived. I rarely take the time to provide feedback but in this case I felt compelled to do so. Kind of like a tip after a meal. It's not always automatic unless the service warrants it. In this case, it does. Thanks guys (and gals) and I'll not hesitate to purchase from etrailer.com again in the future! 206506

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

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

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

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

Outstanding customer service/support coupled with a great product at a great price...what more can you ask for? My hitch arrived with superb packaging and simple to follow instructions. Being super meticulous, I installed my hitch in a couple of hours. The Companion's design works fantastic with the OEM puck system in my new 2017 Silverado 3500HD Dually! Really looking forward to hooking up my new 5th wheel and hitting the road! If you are in the market for a new hitch, definitely consider the Made In America B&W Companion 3700 5th wheel hitch! 438853

So far it has been great! Being 65yrs old I was apprehensive about trying to assemble and load the hitch with just my wife to help. I remedied that by loading everything into the bed of my truck, including my tools and assembled it in place. Not being up to speed on RAMs puck system I did not know what to expect. I assembled the hitch, torqued it to spec and it dropped into place with out further adjustments or fanfare. I pull a 34' 5th wheel and don't even know it is back there. Hitching and unhitching is a breeze with very little learning curve. That says a lot since my learning curve more resembles a U-turn. Thank you B&W for a great hitch, thank you etrailers for a great deal. 468153

We are very impressed with the B&W hitch. My wife and I both hitch and unhitch without any problems. Ill say it again. Thanks B&W for a great hitch and thanks etrailer for a great deal.

  • 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 is regarded as one of the best hitches around. And they're 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. If yours is designed for short bed trucks and has a tapered front...

  • Best 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2017 Ford F-350
  • The best fifth wheel trailer hitch for you depends on the details of your 2017 Ford F-350. The Reese Elite Series is a great choice, especially if you have the factory prep package. The Elite fits right into Ford's factory pucks so there's no need for an adapter. If your truck is an 8 foot bed use the stationary hitch # RP30142 but you'll need the slider # RP30144 if your truck is a short bed. They're both 18,000 pound hitches. Another great option is the B&W Companion. The Companion...

Both of these fit directly to the OEM pucks in your 2019 Ford F-250 so that when/if you remove them you will have a clean truck bed. The most popular 5th wheel hitch for your F-250 is the B&W Companion # BWRVK3370. This is considered by most to be the best 5th wheel hitch out there due to the solid construction, 1" thick dual locking jaws, fully-articulating head that can be easily removed,...

  • 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.

  • Can Head of B and W Companion Fixed Hitch also Fit on Companion Slider Base
  • You can take the head of your fixed B and W Companion hitch and install it on a B and W Slider base part # BWRVB3405 and you'd be set.
