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".


Assembly of the B&W Companion

To install the Companion, first bolt the included RV post to the Companion's base. This post is what inserts into the hole in your truck bed. The RV post attaches to the base in 1 of 2 ways to allow for improved cab clearance and proper positioning over your truck's axle.


The next step is to set up the Companion's pivot arms. The arms are what allow the hitch to be adjusted front to back as well as up and down for optimal positioning. As a result, this hitch can accommodate the height of your trailer and also help to give you the cab clearance needed to execute turns while towing.


Companion 3500 Base Diagram

To adjust either the height of the hitch or the fore/aft positioning, just attach the hitch's pivot arms in the desired location on the base. The above diagram gives an indication of where to mount the arms so that you get the height and the cab clearance that you need.


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&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part number BWRVK3500-5W. This 5th wheel companion is going to be great for hooking up any 5th wheel trailers that you may have, but also if you have gooseneck trailers, it works great because this goes into gooseneck rails that you can use the gooseneck ball with. What's really nice about this 5th wheel companion is that you can completely remove it from the bed, so when you take it out, you've got a full bed access and there are no cross rails left behind. It features a dual jaw design. It's going to give you 360 degrees of coverage around your king pin. Unlike slide bar jaws, the rounded 2 piece jaw in this 5th wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hook up and a safer quieter ride. In order to operate those dual jaws, you simply remove the pin from the handle here and then this handle is a cam action, so as you pull the handle back, it's going to open up the jaws and then you can slide your king pin in.

Then when that king pin hits and makes pressure, it'll close it and lock around it with that 360 degrees and you can replace your pin. The head on this tilts both front to back and side to side and with the weight of the dual jaw and cam action lever set up, it's not going to lock up on you when you're on uneven ground so you shouldn't have a problem getting your king pin out from your 5th wheel hitch. It features a 5,000 pound vertical load limit and a 20,000 pound gross towing rating. Through the opening in the side rail here, you can see that we've got multiple holes which allows you to give the proper adjustment for whatever your truck's needs are. If you need it to sit a little bit higher, a little bit lower or a little bit further forward or back, this is going to allow you to do that with all those points of adjustability. The overall hitch height can be adjusted from 16-1/4 inches to 18-1/4 inches. Here on the bottom of the rail, it's got these plastic pads that what they do is go down into the low ribs of the bed's corrugation to provide a nice fit and they are adjustable throughout the slot here so then you can tighten them down once you have them lined up inside those low ribs.

No modifications are required to your truck or trailer and no additional parts are required for the system to work. That's going to complete our look at the B&W Companion 5th wheel trailer hitch, part number BWRVK3500-5W.

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

B and W companion 5th wheel hitch on 2016 Ram 3500. Easy install, good directions. 20,000 pound capacity, will easily tow toy hauler. Removes easily to have full bed access or to use the gooseneck hitch which you will need for companion hitches. Very fast delivery. Thank you.

Just finished installing my B&W Companion 5th Wheel hitch. I hooked to my RV to check my instillation, everything went very smooth. I would recommend this hitch to anyone with a Gooseneck turnover ball B&W hitch installed in there truck bed. Great product, very easy instillation. 310924


Comments

This hitch is working out great. Easy to take out and put in. Two of my friends have purchased this hitch after seeing how great they work. Love my hitch!

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

--------------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

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. I also bought The Pollack t connector that was also easy to use. The install was done at home and easy to understand. Thanks again. 372927

We received our new BW Companion hitch on time. Noticed that our BW Turnover Ball hitch already installed in truck required a shorter socket post one week out from our trip. With a quick discussion with the great people at etrailer as well as BW, we had the new socket post shipped and installed prior to leaving town. Easy install - All worked as designed. So glad to have responsive parties involved here to help us out. Thanks! 526278

This was our first fifth wheel hitch we purchased. SInce we already had the B & W turnover ball installed in our truck this was the obvious choice. It was shipped very fast and after reading all the instructions first my husband and I were able to install this in about an hour and a half. Have pulled with it already and its easy to use, safe and very quiet. Spend the extra few dollars and go with the best ! 191913

I would like to say that I was not looking forward to putting this hitch on my truck. I heard nothing but nightmares and horror stories, but it couldn't be farther from the truth. I had a friend come over to help (glad I did cause that turnoverball hitch would have been a bear to hold up by yourself. It was ten times easier than I would have imagined. Just follow the instructions and it's a piece of cake. We had the turnover all hitch on in less than 2 hours. Unfortunately I had a rusted brake line that I had to repair before completing the job. Haven't used it yet but can't wait to hitch it up and hit the road. Thanks for making this hitch so easy to install. I'm glad it's American made and extremely heavy duty. 539585

Installed Companion hitch on a 2014 3500 SRW Ram. Instructions where straight forward and easy to follow. It took about 2 hours with basic hand tools. It looks like a factory install and I love that it leaves nothing in the bed of the truck. Putting in the hitch in to tow only takes 5 minutes. All you need is a torque wrench and you are ready to go. 159586

This is my second Companion hitch in just a few months. Unfortunately my home burned down in the fires, as did my fifth wheel. But I'm looking for one again and I didn't hesitate to by the same one again as it worked flawlessly on a 3000 mile trip back in July. Now I'm ready to pick up another fifth wheel when I find the right one! Highly recommend this product. Especially since I use my truck without the hitch in most of the time and the bed is easily made free and clear of the hitch. Speedy delivery too. 230195

I have been towing 5th wheels for the past 20 years and this is hands down the best hitch I have used. Simple to install and remove. The cam activated jaws make hitching and unhitching a breeze. It provides a quiet and smooth ride with the 5th wheel in tow. The hitch arrived in two undamaged boxes on the date promised and instructions were easy to follow. A bit more expensive than other hitches, but well worth it. You can't beat the quality of B&W or the Customer service from E-trailer. 644195

The product arrived in two cardboard cartons. I am still in the process of installing the hitch in the bed of the new pickup. The Turnover ball was installed under the bed by an approved vendor. I plan to use the hitch to securely tow a 28 foot fifth wheel trailer. The previous hitch was a slide-bar type and served us well in years with a smaller trailer. We found that the hitch load of the trailer was close to the maximum capacity of our tow vehicle. We upgraded to a new pickup in March. This was recommended by a friend who has one; He has excellent experience with his hitch. He demonstrated it to me and showed how the hitch can be removed to use the bed for hauling materials such as plywood sheets. This will provide a larger factor of safety in towing a large fifth wheel trailer. 628753

Excellent fit and finish but the packaging did not hold up well to the UPS handling. Large holes in box. However, all small parts were packed in heavy plastic and arrived with box. One item for etrailer listing, B&W notes on their assembly instructions this hitch not recommended for use with Reese Revolution or similar pin boxes. This became an issue for me and I had to contact B&W for a more expensive slider hitch base. Please note this on your product listing for future users. B&W is very responsive and helpful in dealing with their customers. 614132

I just received this hitch yesterday. I'll be installing it in my GMC 3500 Denali soon. I've seen this 5th wheel hitch in a Chevy 3500 before ordering it. It's well designed, and heavy enough to do the job without any worries about it. That's what sold me on it. I highly recommend it and buying it through etrailer.com. They back their products, and shipping is amazing quick. I've never had any problems with etrailer.com.... a great place to buy from.. 599695



- BWRVK3500-5W
by:

Installation was quite simple and only took less than 2 hours for this part of the hitch. I like that the hitch will separate into 2 sections otherwise it would be too heavy for one person to lift. The downside is that you do need a wrench to install/uninstall this hitch, but installing removing should only be about 10 minutes. 595772

Quality built product; instructions, material, compatibility with my B&W gooseneck unit. Ordering was easy with Wayne and having his assurance the unit would be compatible helped ease my hesitation. I am renting a trailer and the rental place asked about my 5th wheel unit. I sent them the link from etrailer and they said “oh yeah, that will work fine.” 591367

This is a beautiful hitch, it went in great, I had a friend help me do the install. It took me 4 hours to put in the under-bed mount kit, assemble the 5th wheel and add the wiring. I could probably do it in less than half the time now that I have done it once. I am happy with the final result. I wouldn't recommend doing the under-bed kit without help but the rest was a breeze. 561791

Only one half received. Bottom rails damaged in shipping, being returned. Was going to pick up a trailer with my old truck this weekend, and needed this hitch. So I am sure the metal is quality, but for me it is useless scrap with out the bottom part. So now sellers are waiting to sell a trailer to me that I cannot get for another month. So much for depending on pro shippers to do it right. 561595

Comments

After a 5700 mile trip this spring I would recommend this hitch to anybody. It is solid going down rough roads and on the highway. Never had any concerns about the hitch at all. Seemed to absorb a lot of the shock on rough roads. Nothing was transmitted to the truck. Hardly knew trailer was hooked behind

I have used a lot of different 5th wheel hitches over the years when I pulled professionally and this hitch is by far the best I have ever used. It is extremely heavy and strongly built. I am 75 now and this one will just stay in the truck. It took me approximately 4 hours to put together and into the truck (my wife helped me lift the base in). 545142

The C/W fifth wheel companion is a very good choice ! They make a very good hitch for pulling your fifth wheel. I installed it myself and had no problems!

The ordering process was simple and easy to navigate. The shipping was free and fast! i received my order in 3 days. The hitch arrived in two boxes and was complete and undamaged but I can't say that for the boxes that was used for shipping. Since these items are so heavy I'm not sure a cardboard box is the way to go...The larger (and the heaviest) box was completely destroyed by the time UPS got done with it and the smaller box was broke open. I was really surprised to see that all of the hardware was still with the hitch because nothing was keeping it from falling out and being lost in shipment. Someone needs to re-think the packaging. All in all I got a great hitch for a great price! I will be ordering from etrailer.com in the future! 505908


Comments

I purchased this particular hitch because I didnt want to drill holes in my truck bed to mount rails and stuff. With this hitch I can utilize the factory goose neck socket. Also by having the rubber bushings under the head it practically eliminates chucking while towing my RV. I have several friends that use other brands of hitches and I feel that I have the Cadillac of 5th wheel hitches. I am very happy with my purchase. Thank you B&W and etrailer.com

  • 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...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 Towing 41-Foot 2017 Montana Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • That's a very nice set-up you have there and the best fifth-wheel hitch to add is the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500-5W which you would mount in the bed of your 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 with the Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1016-5W. This is the set-up you would want to use if your Silverado did not have the factory fifth wheel rails with the pucks in the bed of your truck. If you did have that the Companion # BWRVK3700 will fit directly in the pucks of your Silverado. The Companion...

  • Recommended Under-Bed 5th Wheel Rail Kit for 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • If you are looking for the B&W installation rails that work with the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W, you will just need part # BWGNRK1012-5W. This is an underbed kit that allows for full bed access and also doubles as a gooseneck hitch when the 5th-wheel hitch is removed. Once installed, this will provide a single hole in the center of the bed that will act as the mounting point for the B&W Companion. If you are looking for more of a puck-style system, I recommend...

  • Is Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Required for 2013 Ford F-350 6-3/4' Bed Towing 2018 Chaparral w/ Turn-Tec
  • For trailers that have a boxed front a sliding 5th wheel hitch would be required for any truck bed that is between 6' - 8' long. Since your 2018 Chaparral 298RLS MID has the Turn-Tec tapered front end you very well could use a stationary 5th wheel hitch and still have enough clearance for a 90 degree turn. We cannot necessarily guarantee that it will work because we haven't tested it out, but I did get on Coachmen's site and they make the same claim that your dealer made. Because of...

  • Can Spacer Blocks be Used on Fifth Wheel Trailer to Get Nose Down
  • We do not generally recommend using a spacer block because it can cause the trailer to bounce more and its suspension to wear out more quickly. So while this can be done, it isn't the best solution, particularly if those inches can be had by your son getting smaller tires. One option is to use the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit # LC407131, which will add 2 inches of lift, so long as the trailer is a tandem axle. I have added a link to a video review for you to take a look at...

  • Recommended Gooseneck And 5th Wheel Hitch For 2001 F-350 With 8 Foot Bed
  • Based on your photos, I can not identify the system you have and it appears that it was a custom job that doesn't work with current options. My recommendation is to remove the customized system and start over so you know that all of your parts are compatible. For your 2001 Ford F-350 with 8 foot bed, I recommend the Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWGNRK1108-5W. This will give you the gooseneck hitch you want. This gooseneck system...

  • Weight of B&W Patriot 16K 5th Wheel Hitch BWRVK3200
  • If you intend to purchase a 5th wheel trailer that has a Revolution or Sidewinder pivoting pin box for use with your 2013 Ram 2500 short bed then you will not need a sliding-type hitch and can use a fixed hitch of your preference. However, the excellent B&W Companion 20K hitch # BWRVK3500-5W, which mounts using the gooseneck install kit # BWGNRK1313-5W, is not compatible with any type of pivoting pin box. You are correct that B&W makes a serious product. Their 5th wheel hitches are produced...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • The fifth wheel hitch I most often recommend is the Companion by B&W, because of how well constructed, durable and easy to use it is. The Companion uses an extremely strong 1 inch thick hitch jaw that tightly holds the fifth wheel king pin. This provides for a great ride, unlike some of the entry level hitches where the king pin can rattle around in the hitch, transferring each one of those bangs and crashes to the tow vehicle. The actual hitch you need will depend on whether your hitch...
