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 and W Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - BWRVK3500-5W Review

Today we're going to review part number BWRVK3500-5W. This is the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch. This is a jaw design with a twenty thousand pound weight capacity. Now this fifth wheel hitch is design to mount in your truck bed so you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. It's a very quick simple installation. If you notice right down here in the very middle there is a socket post.

This will install in the ball hole of a custom under bed mounting kit which we do sell separately on our website. This is a rail free design which allows for full access to your truck bed when the hitch is removed, so basically when you pull this fifth wheel hitch out of the socket that that goes into then you'll have full access. There's no rails in the truck bed. You have full access to load your truck bed. Now this hitch does have the one inch thick dual jaws right here which will provide a three sixty degree jaw to kingpin contact. That will give you less rattle and more security than a lot of the slide bar jaws. It has this cam action latching handle which will help prevent binding.

It's very simple to release even on un-level terrain and it is lockable to secure the trailer to the hitch. We do sell a padlock separately if you prefer, but basically what you would do is remove this clip and then pull the pin out and the pin is attached to a chain so you don't lose it. Then as you'll notice this handle we just move back towards the cab of the tow vehicle. As you'll notice when we move the handle all the way back the dual jaws do open, so once your kingpin slides in here and goes up against the back of this it will actually push this handle closed and the jaws would wrap around there. Then once the handle is closed all the way, you just take your pin and clip or your padlock if you prefer, drop that through there, clip it and that will keep the handle from moving and keeps the jaws wrapped around your kingpin. It does have this fully articulating head which you can see goes front to back and the plate up here actually goes side to side so this fully articulating head will ease the hook up and helps limit chucking.

Now you can get improved cab clearance and that can be achieved. You can get four inches of front to back adjustment. Basically these pivot arms that this hitch head sits on right here can be mounted, when it's mounted to this base on the very side of the base on each side there's a multitude of holes. Depending where you put this pivot arm, you'll have four inches of front to back adjustment and also you can put them in three different coupler height settings, so these pivots arms can also be raised or lowered in one inch increments. There's three different coupler height settings. Basically you can do sixteen and a quarter inches, seventeen and a quarter and eighteen and a quarter and that would be the measurement from your truck bed up to the top of your hitch head here.

This hitch head actually sits on these pivot arms and on the top of the pivot arms that this sits on is the polyurethane bushing. Those polyurethane bushings will give you a nice quiet rattle free ride. If you'll notice on the base itself has a nice wide stance which offers strength and stability. If you notice on the side, it includes these two plastic foot pads and these basically would attach to the bottom of the base here, one on each end. They do have a shape to them so basically you would put them to match the corrugation in your truck bed. This attaches to that base and it will fill that corrugation to help create a better fit, so when you drop this down into your truck bed this plastic food pad will line up with the corrugation and fit in there and keep that from moving around. This is a two piece design which is for simple set up and removal. Just in case you want to remove this from your truck bed and you're by yourself, they make it easy to remove in pieces. Basically right here if you pull these pins, there's a clip here and drop the pin out. Pull this clip, drop the pin out over here. Then what you can do is these two handles right here, you just pull up on those and when you do that you can lift this whole hitch head off those pivot arms. By doing that, it's easier for one person to take that head off and set it aside. Then you can remove this whole base assembly. It's got handles here on the side that you can pick up and remove it. The two piece design makes a very simple set up and removal. As you can see, it's made of a high-quality steel, has a gray powder coat finish that will help resist corrosion. A few specs on this, it has a towing weight capacity of twenty thousand pounds. It has a vertical load limit or pin weight capacity of five thousand pounds and again it has the three different hitch height settings you can set it at anywheres from sixteen and a quarter up to eighteen and a quarter. Go ahead and put the pins back in. Go ahead and put the clips back in so we secure the hitch head to the pivot arms. That should do it for the review on part number BWRVK3500-5W. The B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with the dual jaw design and a twenty thousand pound weight capacity. .

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 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

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 product is great! Better than I was expecting. I own the BWRV3000 companion. This upgrade is easy to assemble easy to install and remove, I really like the design, of only having to remove one bolt to remove this hitch from the truck bed. I have purchase a lot of items from etrailer.com, their customer service has always been very helpful. They stand behind there best online price policy. I have use it with on hassle just follow the easy instruction. Thanks etrailer.com!!! 447849

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

Simple instructions and straight forward install, a bit heavy without an extra set of hands, but manageable (leverage is my friend). I've been using it for the past couple of months and am pleased with the companion hitch to pull a 35' fiver. The only thing I could have used in the instructions were recommendations for positioning (due to my lack of experience), but my initial placement worked out just right, the rig is well balanced, hauls very well and without chucking. Plenty of space in my longbed truck to clear a 50Gl. auxiliary tank and toolbox (and no worries about busting the back window out). Since I've got a bit of a steep learning curve ahead (I've hauled plenty of bumper pulls and goosenecks, but this is my first big 5th wheel), I greatly appreciate the ease of use as well as being able to free up my bed space when I reach my destination. Great product, can definitely recommend it. 232692

Excellent product, very sturdy design that will surely last years, paint quality is excellent and looks very durable. Hitch work very well to unhook, you don't have to hammer the jaws but you do have to find that sweet spot level Wise and anglewise where it releases easily. So far, very impressed with the Hitch, very quiet because of the incorporated Polyurethane bushings, easy to take off the bed, albeit the Hitch is a little heavy, but I'd rather have a heavier well made Hitch than a flimsy one thats lighter. If you take off the head separately, it makes it way easier to remove. If you're older and not as strong, I'd recommand doing it with 2 people instead of by yourself. Instructions were very good, I love the way the 2 skids "lock" into the grooves of the bed, makes for an incredibly stable and movement free Hitch. No more oblong holes that make noises like other brand's Rail systems. If you want to spend on a Hitch only once and be done with it, go with a B&W Companion with Underbelly gooseneck. 209521

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

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

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! I called the factory to confirm something I read in ther instructions twice! The installation instructions are right on target and should be followed. 510177

The supplied plastic rails that are supposed to fit into the gloves of the bed are too thick. Other than that, it's heavy. I have had one back surgery. The base is heavy and awkward the post that goes into the gooseneck receiver protrudes a lot, making it more difficult to move around. Having to tighten the bolt to grab the securing pin could have been a wing nut type set up. Have to use a hammer to get it to release from the truck bed. Like it binds to prevent removal. Don't get me wrong. So far this hitch has preformed well. Love the fact that once the hitch is removed. My truck bed is free of obstructions. I over load everything. This hitch has handled everything I've thrown at it. Happy with the purchase. Not worried about panic braking with a heavy load. Good weight distribution on the bed. No bending of the bed. Seriously consider this hitch. Just get a pulley system to help remove it from the bed. 455963

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

How easy to install and quickly I received this hitch Love that it comes out so easily to give me back my complete bed. Like all the adjustment you can make would buy again. When B and W put the roll over ball goose neck and this hitch together don't think it could be better! 502205

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel?


  • 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...

  • What is the Best Truck for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • You are doing the right thing by doing the research first. There is a lot of conflicting information out there so let me break it down for you and I will provide some part recommendations at the end. Basically, if you want to tow a 5th wheel trailer, the best trucks are going to be long bed 3/4 or 1 tons like a Ford F-250/F-350, Chevy/GMC 2500/3500, or Ram 2500/3500. Half ton trucks could work but are not nearly as capable as the larger trucks. A long bed for sure is something you will...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Lightest 5th Wheel Hitch With Clean Truck Bed on 2017 Ram Standard Bed Crew Cab
  • To give you the clean bed you are looking for, I recommend the Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWGNRK1309-5W and then using the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # BWRVK3500-5W. This hitch can be installed with the hitch head separate. This will give you the cleanest bed. If you want the lightest option with a clean bed, then I recommend the same gooseneck hitch, but then use the Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rails...

  • 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...

  • Recommended B&W Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ford F-350
  • For your 2017 Ford F-350, the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500-5W is one of the most popular 5th wheel hitch options. It is extremely well made in the USA and is designed to work with the Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWGNRK1117-5W so you get that clean bed when not in use. The underbed gooseneck hitch will add 137 lbs to your truck and then when you add the 5th wheel hitch it will be an additional 205 lbs. If you have a short bed truck you...

  • Recommended Extang Trifecta 2.0 Tonneau EX92455 For 2017 Chevy 3500 Long Bed With
  • From what I can find online for inside bed dimensions, I believe the following will work for you...This is based on 24 inch Bed rail height. I reached out to my contact at Extang and they said the Extang Trifecta 2.0 Soft Tonneau Cover - Folding - Vinyl # EX92455 sits about 1 inch above the rails and the lowest part of the frame is about 1/4 inch below with the exception of the clamps about 3 inches below. With a B&W Companion that fits in a gooseneck # BWRVK3500-5W, the hitch height...

  • 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 # BWGNRK1117-5W 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...

  • Does B&W Turnoverball Goosneck Hitch Work With Demco Adapter on 2014 Ram 3500?
  • There is no difference between # BWGNRK1314-5W and the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1314 other than how they show up in our fit guide. Each will work with the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W along with the Demco 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter # DM6140 that you asked about. These rails are compatible with Demco Hijacker Premier Series, B&W, Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above bed fifth wheel hitches. The Turnoverball...

  • Recommended System To Tow A Gooseneck Or Fifth Wheel Trailer With 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500
  • I do have a system that lets you tow either a gooseneck trailer or a fifth wheel. First, you will need the EZr Double Lock Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part # C611-624. This system gives you a gooseneck hitch in the bed of your truck with a 30,000-lb capacity. You would then need an adapter, part # C16220 to install in the gooseneck ball opening in the bed of the truck. This gives you base rails for a fifth wheel hitch like part # C16245. I recommend a different system for...

  • Under Bed Mount 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Ford F-150 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • For your 2016 Ford F-150 with 6-1/2 foot bed there isn't a Reese Elite Series install kit available. For an under bed mount you would need B&W # BWGNRK1115-5W and for a non-sliding hitch that will fit use # BWRVK3500-5W.

  • Correct Wedge for B&W Companion Hitch for Using Sidewinder Pin Box
  • If your B&W Companion hitch mounts into the 4 pucks in your truck bed, like with part # BWRVK3600, you can use custom wedge part # SWW-06. If your B&W Companion hitch uses a single post to mount in a gooseneck ball hole in your truck bed, as with hitch # BWRVK3500-5W, then you cannot use it with a Sidewinder pin box since that post would be damaged by the forces applied to it by the trailer.

  • Truck Bed Rail Height and 5th Wheel Trailer Clearance Compatibility
  • The excellent B&W Companion hitch setup for your 2017 F-350, such as parts # BWRVK3500-5W and # BWGNRK1117-5W which fit the 4WD with 8-foot bed, cannot be moved to a flat bed but there are 5th wheel hitches made for that application. They can entail other issues though, like the bed corners hitting the trailer when you turn sharply. Many late-model pickups, especially some Fords, have very tall bed rail height, which you know already. Trucks with extra large tires add to the problem...
