Simple Removal for Full Bed Access

B&W Companion Simple Removal

With the Companion from B&W, you get a heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch that mounts in your truck bed by connecting directly to a custom underbed mounting kit (sold separately) with the included components. No modifications are required to your truck or trailer. And no additional parts are required for the system to work. When you're done towing, the entire hitch can be removed for complete bed access.


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.


Assembly of the B&W Companion

The Companion's pivot 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.


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.

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.

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

This is a must for a short bed truck!!! I bought this hitch for my 3/4 ton duramax to pull my 29’ 5th wheels camper. Shortly after, I pulled it about 2500 miles round trip. It functions and pulls perfectly. Slide it back for more clearance when backing into camping spots without worry of crushing a cab corner. I like the fact that it can be removed from my bed completely without leaving rails in the way. I gave it 4 stars only because it seems to be described more like it is really light and easy to handle and remove. Although it can be done with two people, the slider version is pretty heavy and I used a hoist or tractor the majority of the time to remove it. I would venture to say that the static version would be much lighter. Also bought the flatbed version of the companion that functions exactly like this hitch with the B&W turn over ball for my 1 ton flatbed. This hitch is great. Light weight and easy for one person to load and unload, has the same head that will interchange between bases. This is a great product and the only 5th wheel hitch I will have. 477200

Phenomenal concept and product. Dropped the 5th wheel slider right into my existing B&W turnover ball GN hitch, tightened the required bolts to spec, and took my fifth wheel for a 400 mile round trip. Pulled great and slider worked flawlessly when backing into a tight spot. When I returned home, used a ceiling mounted hoist to yank the hitch out of the truck bed with the Demco DM6100 lifting bracket. It’s great to have a clean bed with no rails. Installed in a 2016 Ram 2500 short box. 585851

I love this hitch. I bought a truck that already had the B&W under bed turn over gooseneck hitch in it. 2013 Ram 2500 with a 6 foot bed, the slide is helpful when needing to make tight maneuvers when backing our 5th wheel into camping spaces,or putting it away until the next outing, we live in a cul de sac makes it possible to go to 90 degrees with out hitting the cab. Also it is nice to not have rails permanently in the bed. 514143

Wow, has it been a year already! First I want to thank the great folks at etrailer for steering me in the right direction with the Companion 5th wheel hitch. It has worked as advertised. It was fairly easy to install (not a one person job) in the truck. the hitch is sturdy, quiet, and gives a great pull on a 35 foot Grand Design Reflection 311BHS. The slider makes backing into some tight spots a lot easier than I expected. Every month I follow the etrailer and B&W recommendation for maintenance, takes about 5 minutes and we're ready to go again. 488200

Works great! Have had it for a year now and have used it quite a few times. Getting it out of the gooseneck hitch can be somewhat of a bear, hence the 4 star rating. Otherwise, I would have given it a 5 477277

Hitch worked awsome, it made a huge difference pulling trailer. The ride was a lot smoother than the ball reciever I used to have. I would highly recommend this reciever. The only down fall with it was trying to take it out at the end of season...dirt gets down in the attachment to the truck and it jammed in the reciever, it was a bear to get out 474351


Comments

The receiver is everything I wanted. I had a gooseneck ball receiver before and this pulls so much smoother that sometimes while pulling I dont even realize my 5th wheel is in tow

Great hitch. Fit was perfect, easy to use and everything stays tight and secure. I probably did not need the slide hitch option because of the design of the rv we purchased, but better to have it and not need it. I paid a local shop to drill the hole in the bed for the frame mounted bracket just so it was a clean cut. 474120

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 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

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

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.

  • Pin Box Upgrade for Lippert 1621 Pin Box That Can be Used With B&W Companion
  • If your 2016 Ram 2500 has the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3400-5W and it mounts in the Turnoverball Installation Kit # BWGNRK1384-5W you cannot use a Sidewinder because the single attachment point for the Companion - in the gooseneck of the Turnoverball - creates too much movement and stress on a single point, potentially damaging the equipment or creating an unsafe towing situation. That said, if your 2016 Ram 2500 has the OEM prep package with the and you...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2016 Nissan Titan XD to Tow 2018 Forest River Sabre 5th Wheel
  • The Forest River Sabre series of 5th wheel trailers ranges in unloaded weight from about 8600-lbs to about 12,500-lbs so I recommend at least an 18K-rated hitch so that once your trailer is fully loaded you will still have a good safety margin with your 2016 Nissan Titan XD. Since your 2016 Nissan Titan XD truck is a short bed, you will need a sliding type 5th wheel hitch to ensure enough turning clearance when you're making tight near-90-degree turns. If you have the factory integrated...

  • B&W Gooseneck Hitch for a 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • The correct B&W Gooseneck Hitch for your 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 is the part # BWGNRK1016 this is compatible with both a 6-1/2' bed and an 8' bed as long as you don't have the OEM Prep Package as you stated. I also recommend installing a 7-Way like part # 50-97-410 on your Chevy so that it is easier to connect and disconnect the 7-Way from your gooseneck trailer. One of the reasons why the B&W gooseneck hitch is so accepted is due to the fact that B&W came out with their own...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Options for a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali
  • Since your 2015 GMC 2500 has the 6-1/2 foot bed you will want to go with a sliding 5th wheel hitch. There are a couple of different options that you can go with here. If you are wanting to go with a 5th wheel hitch that uses the standard base rails then I recommend going with the Reese 20K # RP30083 along with Base Rails Kit # RP50066-58. This 5th wheel hitch is one of the best hitches that we currently carry due to the single-jaw system and 4-way pivoting head to help secure the king...

  • Will B&W Companion # BWRVK3400-5W Fit the Factory Rail Kit on a 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • The B&W Companion # BWRVK3400-5W that you already have is only compatible with a B&W Gooseneck hitch like part # BWGNRK1016 for your 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. Since you already have the factory rail kit already installed on your Silverado the B&W Companion you will need is part # BWRVK3770 for a 6-1/2 foot bed, or part # BWRVK3700 for an 8 foot bed. Even though the head unit, part # BWRVC3006, is the same for your current Companion and either of these options, it would be easier...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitches for 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Z71 with Short Bed

  • Does Reese Underbed Rail Adapter Work With 2017 Ford F-350 That Does Not Have Prep Package?
  • There are underbed fifth wheel rails that are going to work with your 2017 Ford F-350, though the Reese system # RP30126 is unfortunately not one of them. There is good news, however, because the Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1116-5W works on both the 6-3/4' and 8' four-wheel drive versions of the 2017 F-350; I've added a link to a video showing you these rails being installed in a '17 F-350. The biggest benefit of these rails are that they offer you a chance to use what is considered...

  • Will B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Fit Under Tonneau Cover on 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • While we have not tested the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3400-5W and BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK48121 together on a short bed 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500, there are things we can look at to give you a good idea of compatibility. The first thing to note is that the Companion - which will be mounted on Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1016-5W - has three hitch height settings, with the lowest being 17 inches. We also know the BAKFlip MX4 will sit approximately...

  • What 5th Wheel Hitches Will Fit My B&W Turnover-Ball Gooseneck Hitch

  • Recommended Underbed Gooseneck Hitch and 5th Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ford F-250
  • There is an underbed gooseneck hitch which will allow you to mount a fifth wheel in your 2017 Ford F-250, though the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # RP30138-26 is not a fit. Instead I recommend the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1116. Not only will this gooseneck hitch give you a towing capacity of 30,000 lbs, it will allow you to mount the B&W Companion # BWRVK3400-5W for a sliding hitch or # BWRVK3500-5W for the fixed hitch version.

  • Recommended Hitch for Towing a Camper with a 2018 Ram 2500 6-1/2' Bed
  • Generally speaking, 5th wheel towing is more comfortable than gooseneck towing because it has a different connection system and 5th wheel hitches typically have something built in to help reduce the chucking and jarring you can get when towing with an in-bed hitch. The advantage of a gooseneck system is that you don't have to mess with carrying a heavy hitch which means less things you have to be concerned about when getting ready for your camping trip. Since you have a 6-1/2' bed on...

  • Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Options for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch
  • A sliding hitch is necessary for a short bed truck if you don't have a Sidewinder style rotating pin box to give you the turning clearance you need so your trailer doesn't make contact with the cab of your truck. Although the B&W Companion Slider # BWRVK3400-5W is the one of the best options for a slider, you are correct that you do have other options. The biggest issue is that you can't have 5th wheel rails and your gooseneck installed at the same time due to the mounting locations,...
