Quiet, Secure Ride

B&W Companion OEM Ram Jaw

The 1" thick jaw on the Companion OEM 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 OEM Ram 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 OEM 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".

Installation of the B&W Companion OEM

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

To adjust either the height of the hitch or the fore/aft positioning, just attach the hitch's pivot arms in the desired location on the base.

B&W Companion OEM Ram Feet

Then, when the hitch head is fully assembled, simply place the hitch in the bed of your truck, lining the base up with the receiver sockets in the bed. Rotate all 4 handles on the hitch base out so that the built-in puck receivers are in the correct position to install in the sockets. Once the base is lined up, fold the handles in until they are in the locked position and secure them with the included pins.

The hitch head installs on top of the pivot arms. When you have the head in position, simply secure it to the arms with the included pins.

Video Transcript for B and W Fifth Wheel BWRVK3600 Review

Today we're going to review Part number BWRVK3600. This is the B&W Companion Dual Jaw 5th Wheel Hitch for the factory Ram towing prep package and has a 25,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this is a custom fit application. It is designed to fit on the newer Ram trucks with the factory installed towing prep package starting in 2013. This 5th wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow a 5th wheel trailer. It's a very quick and simple installation. Basically, these tabs, one on each corner, will drop into the 4 receiver pucks that are built into your factory under bed rails.

Then with the handles, will lock into place and you're ready to tow a 5th wheel. Basically, the way you would do that, right now the handles are pinned and locked into the lock position. To open it up, you pull the clip and the pin out, rotate that handle 90 degrees. That tab will rotate 90 degrees and that'll allow you to lift this out of your bed. When you're not towing, you have full access to the truck bed. When you go to install it, you'll leave it in the open position, all 4 of them, drop it into the pucks in the under bed system, rotate it 90 degrees. That tab will rotate and lock into that factory system.

Take your pin, slide it back through, put the clip on, and it locks the handle for moving. You do that to all 4 and it's ready to go. Very quick installation to install it or remove it. Again, because it's a rail free design, there's no rails in the truck bed. It'll still, once you're not using, gives you the full access when the hitch is removed. This hitch you can see here has the one inch thick dual jaws. That'll provide a 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact.

That'll give you less rattle and more security than the slide bar jaw designs. It has this cam action latching handle, which will help prevent binding. It's very simple to release even on unlevel terrain. It comes with the pinning clip, but you can actually purchase a padlock separately. You could lock it to secure the trailer to the hitch. To show you how the handle and the jaws operate, pull the pin and clip out.

You take your handle and rotate it towards the cab or to the forward of the tow vehicle. You can notice the dual jaws will open, ready for the kingpin to go in. Once you back up and the kingpin slides in here, it would push on the back of these jaws, which would push and then move that handle back into position and wrap the jaws around your kingpin. With the handle not going any further, take your lock or your pinning clip, drop it into the hole, clip it, and then that keeps the handle from moving and then you're locked around your kingpin. It does have this fully articulating head, which will ease hookup and helps limit chucking. It's front to back. The plate itself will move side to side. It gives you a nice fully articulating head. You can get improved cab clearance for your application. These pivot arms that are bolted to these legs right here, this base part, there's a multitude of holes drilled into this base. You can move these pivot arms in 4 different horizontal front to back adjustments to get the correct clearance for your application. These pivot arms can be mounted in 3 coupler height settings. There's different rows you can put it on and get 3 height settings to get your correct coupler height. It'll range from 17 to 19 inches in one inch increments. That's from your truck bed to the top of your hitch plate right here. This gives you a quiet, rattle free ride. This head is sitting on polyurethane bushings. On the top of theses pivot arms, there's 2 polyurethane bushings that this will sit on and give you a nice rattle free ride. The hitch itself is constructed of steel, has a nice gray powder coat finish, which is corrosion resistant. The gross towing weight capacity on this is 25,000 pounds. The vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 6,250 pounds. Again, the hitch height adjustment we mentioned is 17 inches to 19 inches. One other thing I want to show you is lots of times you might not have somebody if you want to remove this from your truck bed and you don't have anybody there to help you. If you want to do it by yourself to make it easier, what you can do is the hitch head's made to remove pretty easy. These 2 pins and clips right here, you pull the clip out, drop the pin. The same way over here, push/pull the clip out and drop the pin. What you can do is to remove this head off the pivot arms, you see these 2 handles right here You pull on those when you lift them up. That'll release it from the pivot arms. Then you can lift the whole head off by yourself. That will cut down on the some of the weight then you can take the whole base and the pivot arms off by yourself also. If there's nobody there to help you, that's a nice, simple, easy way to remove it if you're the only one there. If you put it back together, put the pins back in. Once you drop the head onto the pivot arms, put the clip back in. Same way over here. You notice the nice thing is they have them chained so you don't lose them. You take the clip, put it right back in. There we go. Clips right into place and then you're ready to go. That should do it for the review on Part number BWRVK3600, the B&W Companion Dual Jaw 5th Wheel Hitch for the factory Ram towing prep package. .

I have a 2016 Ram 2500 and I currently tow a 36 ft. 5th wheel that weighs in about 15,000 loaded. This hitch is overkill for me on the tow rating but that's what I wanted. I have been towing for years and this is my third hitch and I don't want to have to think twice about the hitch when I'm climbing and descending mountain passes. I live in Washington state and I go all over the Pacific Northwest with the trailer. I have been in situations where I pushed the limits of my gear. I wanted safety, ease of use, high quality, American made, and peace of mind and this hitch delivers all of that. The hitch arrived in great shape for being such a heavy beast. The directions are easy to follow and installation was very simple. Follow the directions and with a helping hand you will have this hitch installed in about 30 minutes and I go slow to make sure everything is exactly correct. The hitch is heavy so moving it into place and adjusting the latches takes some muscle. Other than that this thing is plug-and-play. I towed this weekend for the first time with this hitch. I went on a short 250 mile trip. This hitch makes ZERO noise. It's sturdy. There is no play in the connection and the truck and trailer are one. This hitch feels incredibly smooth to tow with. No knocking, rocking....nothing. Just smooth, strong stability. The best hitch I have used, easily. The best part is hitching and unhitching, so much safer and easier than any hitch I have seen or used. Some hitches tend to bind or have tension loaded making unhitching a multi-step, sometimes less safe process than it should be. Not this hitch. Drop year landing gear, pull the pin, and drive away. Anyone who has ever fussed with a 5th wheel hitch hear me me now. If your are sitting on the fence and wondering if this hitch is truly a 5 star hitch stop wondering and pull the trigger. It's a five star hitch and worth every penny. And buy it right here at e-trailer. Excellent customer service and solid pricing. They truly care about the customer. They answer their phones too if you have any questions. In today's world that means more than I can say. 346705

Big and heavy . Took 4 of us to install it. Think I got the side support placement right. Will have to wait till I hook up too see. One complaint and the mfg. should do something about it. The handle can be reached from the side but not the locking pin. I'm going to have to figure out a way to lock it as at my age It is now a problem. Will come up with something that can be done from the side. 229735


On that issue I recommend a step you can leave in bed to pull out and step up to secure lock. Thats my plan for now.

One of the folding wheel mounted steps might do the job.

Thanks for the suggestion Tom, below is a link to tire steps we currently offer.

buy a pair of mechanical fingers, thats what I use.

One further comment. The jaws as seen from the back when closed should be painted yellow. Then it could easily be noted that they are closed.

After buying a 2015 Dodge Ram 2500 with the new puck system I researched several fifth wheel hitches and decided on the BWRVK3600 based on the fact it was an OEM part that would fit in the puck system without adding an additional rail system, and it being American made was absolutely a very nice bonus. I was extremely pleased with the exceptional customer service and how quickly the hitch arrived after ordering. Upon receiving and opening the boxes, I was truly impressed with the quality workmanship and the heavy duty weight of the hitch and the included parts. Coming from the engineering field I have learned that a product is only as good as its quality assurance, and your quality assurance appears to have extremely high standards! Prior to receiving the hitch I had viewed the video online, and as recommended I read all the included instructions first. It was easy to understand and I encountered no problems with the installation. Not being in a hurry and taking my time, it took me 3-4 hours to install, and then I hooked up to my fifth wheel to check the height. Afterward, I did make one adjustment to the height of the pivot arms, and now it is a perfect fit. I will definitely recommend your company and hitch to anyone looking for one and have already shown mine to several neighbors. Thank you for making an OEM high quality product! Cheers!

Purchased the BWRVK3600 Fifth Wheel Hitch a couple of weeks ago. This is a great product that arrived on time as stated. Assembly Instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I took my time but the whole assembly process only took about a half hour. I installed the assembled hitch into a 2014 Dodge Ram 3500, that has the factory prep towing package. The base sat into the puck style system with no trouble. Just some minor adjustments to the latches to get them to fit snugly as per the instructions. I used it to tow my new 40 ft. tow hauler home a week ago. Hooking up was so easy it slid right into the locking jaws with ease. In fact it went so smooth that I started to skid the RV on its landing gear. This fifth wheel hitch preformed beautifully during the tow. Taking off and stopping went very smoothly with no jerking motion. Backing into the RV site and unhooking was also very easy even having to jack knife the trailer into the site in uneven ground. As soon as I released the locking lever, released the parking brake, and put the transmission in neutral, the truck just rolled ahead with ease. I am really impressed with the whole process of assembly, installation, and operation of this fifth wheel hitch. It is a little heavy, but it is built that way for a purpose, the quality of workmanship is top notch. I look forward to years of service out of this fifth wheel hitch.Being made in America is the big plus. Thank you to B & W for a great product. 194163

I owned another brand of hitch for many years and always thought it was OK. When I bought our new 2015 Ram 3500, I ordered it with the 5th wheel prep kit - which meant it had the pucks for the hitch. After do some Internet research I decided on the B&W Companion hitch. All I can say is WOW! Now this is a HITCH. The hitch head separates from the base for easy storage. The head is not that heavy but the base is a beast. Here's what I love about this hitch: 1. The fit and finish on the hitch is great - the welds are excellent, the paint finish is great, it's obvious when you see this hitch that it is well built. 2. The hitch head is easy to remove. 3. The hitch head has a grease zirk for lubing. 4. The hitch has double locking jaws that give a great secure fit around the king pin. 5. The hitch is quiet - I mean really quiet. It might get noisy after a few years of use but right now it's extremely quiet. 6. The base is easy to install into the truck bed pucks. The instructions included helped me to adjust one of the puck locking pins easily. 7. The hitch is easy to adjust fore/aft and up/down. Not all hitches will allow you to adjust the fore/aft position of the hitch head. This is really a great feature. All in all a great hitch. Perhaps overkill for a 12,000 pound trailer but I like overkill in things like this. Highly recommend the hitch. 295768

This Hitch is a beast! Very happy! The install took about 2 hours and was pretty easy, it is heavy so another person helps. We are very excited to leave on our trip and this hitch will make us feel very confident. I have enclosed some pictures of the finished install in our 2017 Ram 3500 4X4 Long bed Dually.

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


Fantastic! Works as designed and keeps my rig straight down the highway lane. Great product.

I ordered the hitch online sight unseen. I rarely do this but after reading all the reviews on the hitch, and not just on, I didn't think I could go wrong. Almost every review I read about this hitch was between 4-5 star positive. I checked it over pretty thoroughly via pictures and being a mechanically inclined person, It looked well built from what I could see. My only concern is about the soft sleeve bushings and how long they will the last. Also, can you purchase replacement ones if they wear out. I haven't checked into it yet and it may not be an issue at anyway. I can say though that I am impressed with's service. Their communication throughout the whole process has been great and I even received confirmation today, both from my wife and an email, that the hitch has arrived. I rarely take the time to provide feedback but in this case I felt compelled to do so. Kind of like a tip after a meal. It's not always automatic unless the service warrants it. In this case, it does. Thanks guys (and gals) and I'll not hesitate to purchase from again in the future! 206506

Great product! Easy install right out of the box! 2015 Dodge 3500, base dropped right into factory pucks with no adjustment at all. Risers, spring & arm were easy to install. Hitch is heavy and well built with NO movement or play at all once installed! Had hitch installed in around 45 min from start to finish! 226554

Ordering was very easy and the delivery was made in three days. Took the Companion hitch out of the box and made very minor adjustment and the hitch fit right in place. Didn't time it but I know it took less than an hour to install and check all bolts for tightness. Looks great in the bed of truck and I can take it out if I need the space for hauling. Thanks Etrailer for caring about your customers and checking to make sure I received my order. I will order from you again. Already looking at your automatic steps. Truck is a 2015 Dodge ram 3500 diesel 4x4 dually. 211501

I recently bought a new 2016 Ram 2500 with the factory puck system. I found this hitch and after reading the reviews I decided to get one. The hitch shipped in 2 boxes, and unfortunately they arrived on 2 different days. The hitch head showed up in the factory box, but for some unknown reason UPS decided to deliver the base without its box. It was scratched up and had tape residue all over it where they had taped the pivot arms and parts bag to it. I called customer service to find out what happened and they assured me that was not how they shipped it. They immediately shipped me a new base, which arrived in its box, and had UPS pick up the scratched one all at their cost. Etrailer's customer service I received exceed my expectations! Talk about making sure your customers are happy. I haven't had the chance to tow with it yet, but I can say the fit and finish of the hitch is awesome. This thing is built like a battleship, even the same color as one. I'll come back and up date my review after I have a chance to tow. 285753

Was tired of the movement and clunking with my old hitch between the hich and rails and the kingpin and locking jaws. This hitch completely does away with all the noise. The absolute best 5th wheel hitch I have even owned. A great made in America product. Thououghly impressed. 227955


Best hitch ever

Awesome hitch! Very easy to install (was more difficult to handle and remove the hitch from the wobbly poor fitting shipping container then it was to fit and properly adjust the hitch in my 2016 RAM 2500). Instructions are very clear and easy to follow. This is a very high quality hitch Including the fasteners. Weld quality and powder coat finish is superior to other products I researched or previously owned. Well worth the purchase price. To bad the great looking powder coat was scratched in places from the crummy shipping container causing the base to slide around damaging the high quality finish. e-trailer agent Katie M was awesome to work with and product arrived all the way out here in CA in less then 4 days with the free shipping offer. Overall fantastic hitch and e-trailer is always awesome to work with. If your in the market for a superior fully adjustable 5th wheel hitch for your RAM 2500 or 3500 do not hesitate to go with this super quality B&W all made in the USA hitch. 258650


1 year in and hitch is working very well. Still tight fitting with no signs of wear. Following the lubrication guidelines keeps the hitch working perfectly. The poor manufacturer shipping packaging container that caused so much damage to my new hitch finish is still a huge contention for me. How can such a awesome quality be packaged in such a shoddy card boards box allowing the hitch to be scratched heavily and legs poking out the side of the shipping container. It is a shame a $1100 dollar hitch was placed in a 50 cent shipping box. Terrible quality control by the manufacturer.

I took it out of the box, walked it over to my truck, and set into the openings in my truck bed and turned the handles and put pins in and I didn't even have to adjust it it was perfectly tight. Put the two pieces on to hold the top piece and added a little Grease and it was ready to go. I have a 2017 Ram 3500 4 X4 long bed with airbags and mounted it forward and up all the way. I'm pulling an 18000 pound fifth wheel with flex-air king pin and it rides perfectly. PERFECTLY. I'M very happy with the quality of build and ease of use. 421747

I just received the hitch. All was delivered as expected and quickly. I have not installed the hitch yet due to the weight. It will take at least two people to lift the base into the truck. I chose to purchase from etrailer as no one locally could beat the price and with free shipping and no tax i saved several hundred dollars. etrailer was easy to order from and very friendly on the phone. I purchased this hitch because i just bought a 2017 Ram 3500 with the puck mounting system in the bed. I have a 40 ft BigHorn that weighs in at just under 16k. My old truck had a 16k hitch with the rails above bed. I never felt the old hitch was safe pulling a trailer at close to it's capcity. The new B&W 25k hitch is overkill but worth the peace of mind. I love the puck system as there is nothing left in the bed when the hitch is removed. Makes it easy to use the whole bed when time comes to haul other things like construction materials. 421897

This is the ideal hitch for my Ram 2500 MegaCab. The MegaCab does not allow for a long bed and my RamBox setup causes issues with traditional fifth wheel setups so I needed to go with the Reese Sidewinder but was looking for the ideal hitch set up for my factory prep kit. This heavy duty hitch is the perfect combination and installs easily. Most importantly when used in conjunction with the Sidewinder I can make incredibly tight turns with plenty of room to spare. etrailer support was fantastic. 430845

Product is well made and very sturdy, I think it will work very well when pulling our fifth wheel. Shipping was quicker than expected. Overall it was an excellent experience. 226650


The hitch has performed flawlessly. We pulled the fifth wheel to Alaska and back with no problems. Recommend this product.

New to 5th wheeling and already I am the envy of all my 5th wheeling friends. It is a custom hitch for my 2015 Ram3500. My truck was purchased factory prepped for the custom hitch. Besides the initial setup, 10 minutes gets the hitch in or out. The head detaches but the base is still heavy and awkward for 1 to handle. I have done the procedure by myself without assistance a few times so far. Built myself a table on wheels that I can roll up to the back of my truck and set the hitch on. I use plywood on the truck bed to slide the hitch on once out of the truck bed anchors. The lower shelve has room for my genset along with other items. The hook up procedure is an ease as the hitch pivots both ways. 316545

Big thanks to the etrailer team for professionalism, friendly, courtesy and responsive customer service. They were with me from the time I placed my order till delivery. I ordered a B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch which was delivered in 2 days. The shipping box was torn open during shipping which resulted in the paint on the base being rubbed to bare metal. Rose and Cathy were very supportive in making it right. Another base was shipped and double boxed the second time. They took great care of me and I appreciate that. I will definitely order from etrailer again and highly recommend them. Great prices to boot. Thanks again to the etrailer team. I will provide product feedback once installed. 379067

Wow is all I can say. Took about an hour to get the hitch completely installed into my Ram 3500 DRW factory puck system. The hitch is well built and the ease of use is amazing. After using a slider on my last truck due to a short bed I did a lot of research on what I would work best on my new truck with an 8ft bed with the factory pucks. After reading lots of reviews I went with the B & W Companion. This hitch is far superior to the previous one. The hitching and unhitching is smooth. 377356

This is a really nice hitch. While towing everything is quit with a nice solid feel whether you are turning, stopping, or rolling on down the road. I have a RAM Dually with the factory 5th wheel prep option and the installation was a perfect fit. I did not have to adjust anything. I took my time and total installation was less than two hours. Yes you are going to pay 2 to 3 hundred more for the B&W but I honestly feel that you get your money worth. Also, eTrailer website was easy to order from and shipping to the east coast was fast. Ordered on Monday and received hitch early Thursday morning during Christmas week. Excellent experience all around. Thanks eTrailer. 327542

Could not be happier with this purchase. Me and my brother-in-law installed the hitch in about 30 minutes. I drove to Ohio from the west coast to pick up my new 5th wheel. Five day drive back home with no problems. Felt safe and secure. Hitch rated at 25K, but my rig is only 14K loaded. I love over kill. Safety first. I had a blow out the first day on the return home. 70mph and never felt it. Stable. People had to dive up to me and let me know about the tire. Lucky me. No damage to the trailer. Again, I could not be any happier with this hitch. Also, a little note about etrailer. Great customer service and very quick on the shipping. 360889

Thanks etrailer for your excellent customer service. I was in a jam, and had to purchase a new Dodge Ram pickup to haul my trailer to Florida. I needed a new fifth wheel hitch, for the new Dodge puck mount system. I explained that I needed this hitch ASAP, and your customer service came through. I was a very pleasant experience, and customer service stated that they would rush the order to my house. I would recommend etrailer to all my friends, and I will be ordering from you again. The order arrived at my door within three days. Thanks to you all at etrailer, and continue to strive for your customers. BWRVK3600 fifth wheel Hitch 2016 Ram 3500 256681

The hitch arrived as promised. The instructions were fairly straight forward, although I would suggest reading the entire set through once before you start installation. I spent approximately two hours for assembly and installation. A second pair of hands would be a good thing to have available during the entire time. The unit seems to be strong and well built. I would recommend eTrailer to anyone with trailer hitch needs. 163620

As with all product I've have used from B&W, this one excels. It's a heavy beast, and is shipped as a 2 piece shipment. Assembly took about 30-40 minutes. I watched a YouTube video or 3 before it arrived, so I knew what to expect. Not much to it really. I have pulled gooseneck, but never a 5th wheel. Open the jaw with the lever and back up after getting your trailer in the ballpark with height. The jaws closed by themselves. Attach your wire harness, your breakaway cable and put the cotter pin in the handle. It pulled ultra smooth, and didn't make any sounds or clunks with my setup. Very happy customer. 337059

My new hitch arrived on time as promised. Installation was fast and simple - a couple of minor adjustments to make sure the lock down latches lined up with the RAM factory set up and I was ready to tow. The process to hook and unhook is fast and easy. The jaws lock securely and I don't feel any movement of the king pin in the hitch when i am towing. I'm towing a 38.5' Grand Design toy hauler with a 2015 Ram 3500 diesel. When I am not using the hitch it stays installed and I have a BakFlip tonneau cover that hides the hitch and other contents of the truck bed. The whole set up is perfect for me! 261752

Well built product. Easy to follow instructions. Installation was easy with help of my son-in-law. Would highly recommend that you have assistance, with the installation because of the weight. We did have to make some minor adjustments to get latch assemblies to line up with factory installed 5th wheel prep. But the instruction covered how to in the installation instructions. Received on Friday afternoon installed Saturday, then removed to have bed liner sprayed in on Tuesday. Great product made in a America which I appreciate as well we need to support American Companies! 226496

I had used another brand of hitch and ordered another one when I purchased a different truck, when I got the Hitch there was a 1/2 inch of slop from side to side, this will not work. I called etrailer and Kevin said the BW will work for you. When I received this hitch I looked it over, awesome craftsmanship and the jaws are tight on the kingpin. This is absolutely the best hitch I have ever seen. The other hitch was made in China sad to say, companies can change overnight, you really have to check things out, keep up the great work. 401515

Great hitch! It took a little time to set and adjust, but once it was in place man it was rock solid. My old hitch used the mopar mounting frame with hitch attached. That set up was clunking and making noise. This appears to have solved that. The only issue I had was the hitch arrived missing 3 lock washers, 1 upright bolt with thread damage and some paint blemishes due to package failure. I made a phone call but no return call? Other than that it was great! 443983

This hitch fit perfectly (< 1 hour install) and the work instructions are clear & concise. I tow a Sprinter 12K 5th Wheel with a 2015 Ram 3500 DRW Cummins. I tried another hitch and after a 4-hour non-successful installation, returned to vendor. The base mounts did not have enough tension even after adjusting. The B&W Companion Hitch is a quality product and etrailer shipped on time with great customer service. 184463

by: Travis H10/17/2016

This B&W Companion hitch for the Ram is a must have. All you need to do upon delivery is install a few bolts and brackets using the detailed instructions. It is a very heavy duty and heavy hitch to pick up and put in your bed, so make sure you have help doing that and install the head of the hitch after the base is locked into your bed. So if your Ram has the factory tow prep, I highly recommend this product! 308071

I am a first time 5th wheel owner who had limited experience towing this way. I have only used my hitch once but so far I am extremely impressed. This hitch is very quiet and the trailer tracked behind my truck like nothing I have ever pulled. I'm getting ready to drive across the country and if this hitch continues to perform like this it will definitely minimize driving stress. 337214

I installed this on a 2016 Dodge Ram 3500 4X4 Crew Cab today. Very easy to assemble. Had to make a slight adjustment to one of the pivot bases. Tight fit in the puck system which is not a bad thing. Product is of very good quality, super strong and made in the USA. High quality power coating on hitch. I highly recommend this hitch. Great price, and fast delivery. 242449

This product was poorly packaged for the weight of it and arrived half in and half out of the box. Paint was chipped and scratched in several places and 4 pieces of hardware were missing.

I did the install with a friend and it took about 2 hours. The base didn't match "perfectly," so we spent some time adjusting the pilot assembly.

Great Hitch, but the bolts and washers are subpar they rusted within a few months and also shipping by UPS was the worst idea they used it as a punching bag as the hitch had deep paint scratches and holes in the box and which in return rusting so its no fault of etrialer but BW need to ship that type of product better way. 424005

This thing is built like a battleship, in America, and with American steel.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • The B and W part # BWRVK3600 will be your best option. Companion hitches are basically the nicest hitches available as you know so I would not recommend a Curt over it. Realistically your rear suspension will sag slightly to allow the trailer to tow level, but in case it won't you can also raise or lower the pin box on the trailer frame to make height adjustments that way too.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Prep Package
  • For a 5th wheel hitch that fits directly into the factory 5th wheel prep package in your 2016 Ram 2500 you can use B&W hitch # BWRVK3600. But on a short bed truck even the mounting range of the B&W hitch head might not provide enough clearance to make tight turns safely. What I recommend is to use Demco adapter # DM6099 which fits in the Ram factory prep package. This will act as a base for the Demco HiJacker, # DM8550035, rated for 21,000 pounds.

  • Does 2017 Ram 3500 with Cummins Diesel have Towing Capacity for 15k Trailer
  • The 2017 Ram trucks with the Cummins diesel have an insanely high towing capacity. The trailer you are considering which weighs 15k dry is about half of what your truck's towing capacity is so it would not be an issue at all. Hitch weight is most likely tongue weight for a bumper pull trailer. The B and W Companion part # BWRVK3600 which has a 25k capacity would be a great option as it fits your truck, is the nicest hitch around, and because it has more than enough capacity.

  • Before you can decide on a tank/tool box combo for the bed of your 2017 Ram 3500 truck, you will need to measure the distance between the 5th wheel hitch and the front part of the bed. The measurement should be from the front edge of the front pucks to the front edge of the bed. This distance will give you an idea of how much room you will have to install an auxiliary tank and tool box combo. DeeZee has 2 tank and tool box combination that might work for your application.

  • Can a Sidewinder be Used with a B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch in a 2014 Ram 3500
  • From what we have learned what you have been told by Reese is correct. There are 2 different B and W Companion 5th wheel trailer hitches. One of them just mounts in a gooseneck ball hole. The other one is designed only for the Ram OEM pucks in the 2014 Rams, # BWRVK3600. The one for the Rams, # BWRVK3600, mounts and secures in the four pucks so it can be used with a Sidewinder. The custom Sidewinder wedge for the B and W hitch is # SWW-06. The one that you referenced, # SWW-07, is for...

  • Towing Capacity and 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendations for a 2016 Ram 3500 Crew Cab Long Bed 4x4 Diesel
  • The problem is that there are several applications like the one you have used and you will get a different answer from each one. But the vehicle manufacturer has already done all of that work for you! The towing capacity is in the owner's manual. You can also look at the sticker in the door jamb. If you subtract the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) from the gross combined weight rating (GCWR) then that will tell you the towing capacity of the truck. But I can tell you now that a 2016...

  • High Capacity 5th Wheel Hitch Options for 2014 Ram 3500 Long Bed With OEM 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • B & W offers a high capacity 5th wheel hitch that will use the imbedded puck/under bed rail system on your 2014 Ram 3500, part # BWRVK3600. The hitch has a 25K capacity, and is the highest capacity hitch offered for your truck. The Reese Low-Profile 5th Wheel Hitch you referenced, part # RP30054 is meant for flat bed or cab and chassis trucks only, and would not be a good choice for your 2014 Ram with the OE prep package. I suppose if you were willing to go through enough modification...

  • Recommended Autosliding 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2016 Ram 3500 With Factory Puck System
  • Yes, we have a great option for you to use an autosliding 5th wheel hitch with your 2016 Ram 3500. Demco has their Hijacker series Autosliding 5th Wheel Hitches which will work perfect for your application.The Hijacker that I recommend for you, part # DM8550034, is rated for 18,000 lbs. This 5th wheel hitch will use the bed rails, part # DM6099 which is compatible with your factory puck system. This is my favorite 5th wheel hitch in the sliding category not just because of the autosliding...

  • Will a Pullrite SuperGlide Fit 2015 Ram 3500 with Factory Prep Package Using Reese Adapter
  • Unless Pullrite makes an adapter that fits your new 2015 Ram 3500 with the prep package that also accommodates the SuperGlide you will have to get a different hitch. The SuperGlide does not fit adapter # RP30154. For your 2015 ram 3500 with factory prep package there are a couple of options for hitches that fit directly into the 4 pucks. I would go with B&W hitch # BWRVK3600 because if you have a short bed truck you can adjust the position of the head further back for more clearance. Or...

  • Can Dodge Trucks with Ram Boxes Tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • The problem with the Ram Box is that is that it puts the rails of the bed too close together and it causes interference with the pin box of the trailer around corners. We have heard several customers say that with a Sidewinder pin box they were able to tow a fifth wheel trailer with a truck with a Ram Box. Sidewinders move the pivot point higher so the Ram Box wouldn't interfere. The only problem is that Sidewinder hasn't officially said that you can use a Sidewinder with a truck...

  • Comparing Sliding Hitch vs. Sidewinder for 40-Foot Toy Hauler Towed by 2014 Short-Bed Ram 2500
  • In your application with a roughly 40-foot toy hauler towed by your short-bed Ram 2500 a Sidewinder replacement pin box is the way to go. A sliding 5th wheel hitch like the Curt Q16 # C16521 can give a short bed truck like your 2014 Ram 2500 up to 12-inches of additional turning clearance. On the other hand, a Sidewinder replacement 5th wheel pin box, when used with a fixed 5th wheel hitch, gives you a full 22-inches of additional turning clearance. Sidewinders are made as replacements...

  • Which is Better B and W Companion Hitch or Andersen Ultimate Connection
  • The overall better route will be the B and W Companion Hitch part # BWRVK3500 as long as the vehicle has a B and W Gooseneck Turnoverball hitch installed. The Companion setup is often regarded as the nicest hitch around so whenever available I recommend it for people as it will be the best way to go. If you have a 2015 Ram 2500 with a hitch prep rail kit you then would want the part # BWRVK3600 instead. The advantage the Andersen Ultimate # AM3225 has is that it can fit nearly all...

  • Can B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Adapter # BWRVK3500 Be Used with Dodge Factory Gooseneck
  • A B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter like part # BWRVK3500 has a square base which is made to connect directly to a Turnoverball gooseneck hitch. Since your 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 is equipped with a factory gooseneck hitch which uses a round ball shaft and there is no conversion "stem" available, this style of Companion would not work in your truck. Since your truck is equipped with the factory prep package, I have two options that will work for you. One option...

  • Is a Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Necessary for Towing 5th Wheel - 2015 Ram 2500 w/ OEM Tow Prep Package
  • For a truck with a 6-1/2 foot bed, there are two ways to gain extra clearance between the front of the fifth wheel and the back of the truck cab. You could use a sliding fifth wheel hitch, like the Curt Q24 # C16546 sliding hitch along with the # C16022 adapter. This solution would provide 12 inches of additional clearance, which could be enough for a 90 degree turn if your fifth wheel is no more than 88 inches wide, which is pretty narrow. The better option that would provide a greater...

  • We do offer hitches that will directly fit the pucks in your Ram 3500 OEM puck system. B&W offers their # BWRVK3600 rated for 25K. This will fit 6- and 8-foot beds. In order to use a standard 5th wheel hitch in your 2014 Ram 3500 you will need to install a Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter Kit # RP30154. Please see the linked video.
