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.

Video Transcript for B and W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the B&W Companion Slider gooseneck to fifth wheel trailer hitch adapter offering the dual jaws and a 20,000 pound capacity. The part number is BWRVK3400-5W. The B&W Companion fifth wheel hitch is gonna be the perfect solution to have really the best of both worlds. This is designed to work with the B&W gooseneck. So when not in use, we can have it completely empty and open bed. If we want to haul a gooseneck trailer, we can flip that ball over, be able to connect to that.

But in the need that we need to haul our fifth wheel camper, this is easily gonna slide in and it bolts right down to that underbed gooseneck that you've already got installed. The biggest advantage I see to this particular type of a slider versus other ones available out there on the market is just the way it's gonna arrive to you. When you get it, your base is gonna be completely assembled. You'll have to make a few adjustments just on the keepers, the polyurethane keepers that run down the bottom. But everything is square from the factory.That means when we go from the locked to the unlocked position, you see it take little to no effort to get this moving.

As compared to other setups that you're base isn't gonna come already assembled and already squared up, can really be a struggle to get everything in line to where it actually will move freely and even then, sometimes it requires the camper to move it. Now if you're looking at a slider setup, it's probably because you have a situation similar to this. You've got a short bed truck and you're worried about the camper making contact with the cab. It's a very real concern. It happen quite a bit.

That's why these are around. With the Companion, you can see that gives us a full 12" of travel. That's some of the longest travel you're gonna get out of any type of slider hitch, really helps to move that camper further back from the rear of the vehicle, reducing the risk of any cab/camper contact. Another thing I really like about the Companion system is the lever to operate the slide. You can see it sticks up here nice and high.It's gonna be easily accessible, even if you're outside of the truck.

You lift that up into that unlocked position. Then from that point, once you pull away from your camper, once it gets into the locked position, our arm's automatically gonna come down so we have no pins, no release mechanisms through the lever or anything like that. It's a really good, simple system to use and you'll see coming forward, it's gonna work just the same way. The handle's also nice and long. Again, easily accessible from outside of the vehicle. You do have a pin and clip here to secure it in place. That can also be replaced with a lock with a 1/4" diameter you can pass that down through there. So if you don't want the pin, you can lock your camper to your Companion and that just is gonna slide forward, opening those jaws up. Then in the open position, we'll take our Mack king pin here. You can see that's gonna slide in place and with a little bit of force, that'll bring our lever right back to the closed position. That has us nice and secure. You see that has the 360 fit.So we're not just grabbing it on the backside, which can eventually just leave the flat spotting of your king pin. That's gonna hold it all the way around, front, back, side to side. Now with that limited movement that's really gonna help reduce some of that chucking and some of the trailer effects that you feel in your truck, you're gonna see that one some of the lesser quality fifth wheels on the market. Now in the maneuvering position or the rearward position, this is just gonna be your slow speed stuff. You certainly don't want to travel down the highway with it slid back. To travel, we're gonna slide it forward. But with the ease of access to the slider, I think you're gonna be a lot more likely to actually move it back so you can get your maneuvering done rather than having to go through several steps to get it to slide back, which you might not want to do. Now the head of our gooseneck is also gonna be fully articulating. So like most goosenecks, it has the tip front and back.But that side to side is really key for when you're trying to hook up or unhook from your camper onto uneven surfaces. If you get a little bit of a pitch one side or the other, those lower quality fifth wheel don't really like to release or accept that king pin. Now the Companion's gonna offer heavy duty steel construction made right here in the United States. They've got the unique gray powder coat finish, really helps it stand out from a lot of the competitors out there on the market. With that heavy duty construction, we're gonna get a 20,000 pound gross trailer weight rating. It's gonna be the maximum weight that we'd want to haul and it's gonna give us a 5,000 pound king pin weight. So that's the maximum downward force we can put on top of our hitch. Of course, you do want to check your truck's owner's manual. Make sure it's capable of those types of weights. If not, just go up whichever numbers are the lowest. Now with comparing this slide to other sliders out there on the market, I think the quality in construction is very, very high.Not saying the other sliders aren't made well. I just like the way this one comes and the way it's put together. The way this thing slides forward and back really alleviates a lot of headaches. I like the quality of material, but with that being said, heavy duty material means that it's gonna be pretty heavy. So this is gonna take two guys probably to get it in and out of the truck. I like the square pin design that we have out of the Companion. When that square peg goes down into that gooseneck socket, it prevents any of the turning. Now when comparing that to some of the competitors that have the round peg, movement could be a little bit more of an issue. This is also gonna have the greatest travel of any of the sliders out there on the market. You'll see the polyurethane strips in conjunction with that square peg we talked about. It's gonna be pressed firmly down against the bed of the truck, again, resisting any rotation. Now going with the slider style like the companion or really any of its competitors, it's a pretty expensive decision to make.But based on the use that we've had here and the customer response that we've had on this setup, it's well worth the investment. Its ease of use really complements driving and trailoring, makes it a little bit easier on you so you're not in and out of the truck bed near as often. Now to connect the Companion to your gooseneck, you're gonna see the oblong hole here and inside, we have a retainer. We're gonna place that right down in the hole for the shank of our gooseneck ball. Place the pin through just by releasing our handle and then as we tighten the bolt on the top, you'll see how that's gonna draw that up and it's gonna pull the companion firmly down against the bed of the vehicle. Now as we tighten down that bolt, you can see our full length strips here that are designed to fit down in the corrugation of the truck. That's gonna prevent any twisting or any movement as we travel. Now with the help of an extra set of hands, we can get your Companion put down in position.Remember, we're gonna place our square peg here right down in the hole for our gooseneck ball. Now once we have the Companion in place and squared up, we want to take that polyurethane. We're gonna slide, you can see, right over against the rim of the truck. Want to make sure it stays fully seated down on the bottom. Once we have that done on the front and the back, use a 7/16 and tighten down our bolts. So once we have our polyurethane strips tightened down, we'll release the pin, allowing that 5/8 pin to come in through the catch and then it's just a matter of torquing it down to the specifications listed. Another nice feature the companion offers is full adjustability up and down. We can go from 17, 18, or 19" of pin height and we can adjust forward and back. So by placing our arms in this position, kind of with the angle going forward, that's gonna put us about one inch ahead of our post or our securing mechanism. By putting these in the other way, we're gonna be able 3" behind.Since this is a short bed application, we're gonna set it up so that we're gonna have a little extra room between the cab and the camper. For the lowest setting, I'll use the bottom and middle hole. The middle setting, we'll use the second from the bottom and second from the top and our highest setting's gonna use the top hole and the third one down. You'll use the 1/2" by 2" bolt, want to split the ring lock washer on there, slide it through the hole, and thread it in position. Now we're gonna use four bolts for each arm. Then we can torque all four of these down to the specifications listed in the instructions. Now once we have our arms in place, we'll put on our leveling kit. Now the leveling kit's just gonna be a spring. We'll fit that right to our arm using the pressure clip and we want that to be set at the top of our spring about a half inch below the bottom of our rubber there. Typically, you just use a hammer and kind of get it started, knocked on there, like that.Looks like it crept down a little bit. So we'll just kind of tap it up. There. That should be good. Now the spring's gonna rest right up against the head. So even when not in use, it's gonna help hold that head level. So if you need to connect to your trailer, you won't have to worry about your head being tilted the wrong direction. Now on top of each of our arms, you'll see we have polyurethane bushings. So as our head sits on there and rotates forward and back, you're gonna have to worry about noise and this is also gonna soften the impact of our camper against our truck. Now for our head, you want to lift up on the two handles with the pins removed. We'll place that right down and over. You want to wiggle that down in position until you see your arms drop down just like that, indicating that your secure. Then we'll slide our pins through. Those will be secured with our provided clips. Now the last thing we'll need to do is just get our handle installed.To do that, we'll just remove our pin and clip here, slide our handle in. It's going to align with the two holes furthest in and place through one of our button head bolts there. Locking flange nut on the other side. Get those started. Then tighten down. For the top here, we'll use a 7/32, the bottom, a 9/16. Pin and clip back in there. The handle allows us to easily open the dual jaws. Then as the king pin enters, it's gonna press the lever right here on the front, helping to close it. That's gonna complete our look at the B&W Companion fifth wheel slider.

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.

Awesome hitch. Heavy, but I install it alone with my cherry picker. I have a roll n lock bed cover and it closes over the base with the 5th wheel removed. Easy to slide for tight spots with my short bed F350. 552591

Works great and I feel safe towing with this hitch. The only problem is the weight. It's heavy when removing, takes two people or a front end loader. It is nice not having the rails in the bed of the truck when not installed. If I had to do it over I would purchase again. 446173

The hitch works great and seems to be solid when towing my 36' toy hauler the only trouble I had was it was hard to slide at first but the staff at e-trailer solved the problem by telling me to loosen the draw bolt to 65 foot pounds all in all I love the 5th wheel slider from b&w 240459

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

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

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

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

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

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


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

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. As Arnold says I’ll be back! 605069

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.

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

Still works great after 13,000 miles towing with this hitch over varied roads. Would buy again if need.

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 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.

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

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

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

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

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

  • Difference Between B&W Companion Slider Hitch BWRVK3400 and BWRVK3400-5W
  • There is no difference at all between the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3400 and the # BWRVK3400-5W. We use the -5W at the end of the part number to allow the hitch to show up in two different fitguides. One for the gooseneck fitguide and then one for the fifth wheel fitguide. The Companion setups are considered by many to be the nicest fifth wheel hitch around. The Companion slider is going to be a much better option than using an adapter to use the stationary Pro Series hitch.

  • 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...

  • 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.
