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

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

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

Good hitch made with good materials. Etrailer is a good company no regrets buying from them. Only thing about this hitch is a cheap design on the clip that is suppose to hold the 5th plate level for hooking up. I am on the second one and need a third very soon. The clip needs to be stronger or one on each side of the uprights!! 717569

The hitch is easy to assemble and install. Hooking up and unhooking is a breeze. I highly recommend it. I had a Class A that I flat towed a Honda CRV behind it and hooking up the 5th wheel is easier and faster than hooking up the car to the motorhome. 713353

Shipped and arrived quickly. Costumer service was great and friendly. the package was in good shape. The equipment was as expected, well built and a quality product. The only complaint I say I would have is, for the money paid, they should have locking pins for the pins holding the equipment in your truck that require a key to take out of the truck. Theft is real especially when it comes to high dollar items like this. 703142

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

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

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

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


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.

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

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

Pretty easy install. Spend the 5 minutes to take the heat shield and spare tire off. The little rubber "gripper" on the handle pulled off the first pull. Maybe B&W could put a little glue on it . 380980

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


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

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

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

Installation was very easy! The instructions are easy to read and understand also. Everything about this hitch is top quality heavy duty materials. I do not see anything “cheap” about it. I am very impressed. Thank you B&W for making a top quality removable 5th wheel hitch! And thank you etrailer for being so professional and easy to work with! Oh, the over night shipping is the best! 673369

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


I recently purchased a Curt A20 for GM Puck System and had a lot of noise issues from the hitch when starting and stopping. Curt claimed the spacing designed into the jaw system could make the noise or the factory brake controller is not programmed correctly to the weight of my trailer which is making the trailer to slam forward and then reverse. Curt also asked me to lock out my pin box (Rotaflex) to stop the potential over travel of the hitch head. I did lock out my pin box and it still made noise. Curt did send me a replacement head with no issues, but it unfortunately did not change the issue. At that point they told me there was nothing they could do if the hitch was within spec. It is performing to their design specifications. So....because I was not happy with the product, I decided to called etrailer and ordered a B&W Companion for the GM Puck system. They were extremely helpful with the order and it arrived very fast. I put it in the truck and connected the rv. Guess what no noise, no slamming. B&W did a great job in the design of this hitch to vertically eliminate any noises. I am so impressed with how quiet this hitch is that I should have strongly considered the B&W hitch in the first place. The price difference was difficult for me to justify initially, but now that I have had the two different hitches, it is more than worth the additional money. Overall, Curt tried to help me address the concern and makes good products. I believe the hitch would serve the purpose, but comparing it to the B&W, the B&W is definitely the best hitch I have experienced overall so far and etrailer is the place to get it from. 392973

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

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

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


--------------This is a very strong hitch with an innovative mount.-------------------- I have been using the hitch for about a year now. I purchased the combo kit with the gooseneck in bed parts as well as the 5th wheel assembly. I purchased this unit because it can provide both the gooseneck and 5th wheel modes. I installed mine in a 2014 RAM 3500 DRW which already has the basic structure under the bed so the install went very well. I completed the install at home, which took about 4-5 hours. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, plus there are several installation demonstration videos online for my exact truck, so after watching those it was no problem. The 5th wheel works well with no squeaks or rattles. I pull a 35' 13,500lb toy hauler. The hitch parts are made of thick heavy steel which really gives confidence it will pull the heavy loads. The king pin jaws also seem a bit larger and more heavy duty than other hitches with the same ratings. The hitch also has a lot of adjustments both up and down, and for and aft, which helped to dial in the hitch very well to my trailer. It does convert from 5th wheel to gooseneck easy enough. Just remember it does require a socket to relieve the tension on the gooseneck adapter before it can be released. This is not a big deal, just makes sure to bring a wrench along if you are planning to swap modes while away from home. There is only one small aspect that keeps me from rating the hitch as excellent. I have noticed that the paint/coating scrapped of rather easily in the mouth of the coupler. I guess I rubbed the side of the mouth with the trailer pin when coupling up and it caused the paint to scrape off. Since then the coating is also starting to peel all around the jaw area. 264228

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

Scrapped it because it was damaged, see initial impression. Wasnt worth the price.

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


Just started 5th wheel camping and wanted a hitch that when removed left my truck box bare. I also talked to alot of people who talked about clunking and noise from their hitch while towing. I bought a 2013 32' Coachman which is pushing my 2009 F150 to its max. When pulling with this hitch it feels like the truck and trailer are one unit. No noise and no slop between the two units. I made a lifting pin that goes into the jaws and lifts it out with a comealong hooked to a rafter support in my garage. I then put it onto a wheel cart I made. No heavy lifting and one person can do it all. I've had one teflon foot fall of the hitch and the service was amazing no questions, no pictures, and no waiting. New piece was sent right away. Anyone who tows now and has looked at the hit are very impressed. I would definitly recomend this hitch to everyone. 592596

Wow!! I can’t say enough. What a good looking piece. I have no doubt this is going to do the job. Solidly built with a nice powder coat finish. “etrailer” has a great website that makes selecting easy and the price was unbeatable. Everything got to me as promised without a scratch.

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

I purchased this hitch to connect to the Chevy factory prepped 5th Wheel kit for a new 2017 Chev Silverado 3500 dually. My previous truck/ hitch combo (2015 Chev Silverado 3500 single axle 6.5’ bed w/ Reese Pro Series) used industry standard rails and there was quite a bit of movement in the entire hitch assembly and king pin area resulting in significant chucking on the horrible So. Cal. freeways. The B&W hitch was one of two recommended by the professionals at etrailer. I could not be happier. The hook-up is very easy & the overall operation of the hitch is much easier & simpler than my previous hitch. The 1” thick jaw makes a secure connection to the kingpin and the overall ride has smoothed out significantly. Great product so well liked that my son found a used one for sale and snapped it up for his rig. 504905

I recently bought the gooseneck and fifth wheel b&w hitches to install on my 2008 f 250. I could not be more happy with the products and customer service that etrailer provides.

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

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

My first fifth wheel and hitch so I've not experienced the bad. I'm no dummy when it comes to fabrication and welding - this puppy is a thing of beauty! Not recommended for frail old men humping it in and out, lol. I've used it a few times now and backed my wheeler up and into spots where it didn't belong, this unit didn't flinch. Zero noise back there and a breeze to load/offload from any angle and direction. Glad I did my homework. I like how I can lock the base with a simple padlock, just need to figure out a simple way to lock the upper on. Thanks etrailer! 574125

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

  • 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. If your '19 F-350 is a 6-3/4' short bed the Companion you need is the sliding model # BWRVK3370. If your F-350 is an 8' long bed you have two options depending on the capacity you need. The Companion # BWRVK3300 has a 20,000 lb towing capacity while the Companion # BWRVK3305 has a 25,000 lb capacity. All...

  • 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...

  • B&W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches for a 2019 Ford F-250 with Factory Prep Package

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.

  • How Pick Arm Location for B and W Companion Hitch for 2019 Ford F-250 with Factory Rail Kit

I attached a picture that explains all of the arm location positions for you to check out. I'd go with the rear most position since you have a short bed truck. It gives you better clearance but the king pin will still be carried 1 inch in front of the truck's rear axle.
