Notes:

  • Due to the size of this item, it ships via freight.
  • This fifth-wheel trailer hitch is not compatible with Sidewinder or Revolution king pins. Do not use any device that changes the pivot point of your trailer's king pin with this hitch.

Quiet, Secure Ride

The 1" thick jaw on the Companion is precision machined to provide a tight, sturdy connection. And unlike slide-bar models, the rounded 2-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hookup and a safer, quieter ride.


B&W Companion Bushings

In addition to the sturdy jaw, the Companion has durable polyurethane bushings built in to provide a smoother, more comfortable towing experience. These bushings sit on top of the pivot arms that support the fifth-wheel head. Because the head is resting on a padded area, it is able to pivot without clanking. The ability of the head to pivot - both front to back and side to side - along with the trailer also helps to limit the chucking that may occur with a more static hitch.


Non-Binding Latch Handle

The dual jaw on the Companion is operated by a simple-to-use cam-action handle. This handle allows you to quickly and easily release the jaws on the hitch, even if you are on uneven terrain. If any binding does occur between your truck and trailer, the jaws may remain closed after you move the handle to the open position. But because the handle is unlatched, there is nothing keeping the jaws closed except for the binding pressure. Therefore, simply driving your truck forward will be enough to force the jaws to open.


The cam-action handle is held in the closed position with the included pin and clip. For extra security, you can replace the pin with a sturdy padlock. The shackle on the lock you choose should have a diameter of 5/16", height of 3", and a width of 2-1/4".


Built-In Slider

Most often used on trucks with 6' beds, a slider helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a slider to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.


The slider that is built into the base of the Companion allows for 12" of fore and aft travel to give you the clearance you need.


Installation of the B&W Companion OEM Slider

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 some additional cab clearance.


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


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.

I am very pleased with this hitch, it fit into the prepped bed of my 2016, 2500 Ram perfectly. This is one heavy duty hitch, made very well. The people at B&W definitely know how to make a hitch. It is heavy (weight wise) but I use a overhead winch to lift in and out of my truck bed, works great. I wanted the best and with this hitch I got it. 489918

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

Zero adjustments needed to the pilot assembly, base aligned perfectly and dropped right in. Made minor tension adjustments to 2 latch cams with castle nut. Easy assembly, slider moves easily with just hand pressure. Great product! Looking forward to pulling our 36’ fifth wheel with the new hitch. 549847

Fifth wheel hitch I purchased a year ago is working fine. Still no slack in jaws, hook up and unhook is a breeze. Highly recommend to anyone looking to buy a fifth wheel hitch.

Does not operate very smoothly. You really need to slam it in when sliding back or forward to get latch to lock. Called Factory and was told to flip over and lube rollers. Not much better. Had to do over again would look at other products. Not impressed! 579492


Comments
According to the tech services folks at B&W, what you are describing happens most often with an air-ride or cushioned pinbox. The small amount of give when force is transferred from the kingpin to the hitch itself can prevent the slider mechanism from locking into place in the fore or aft position without a little extra force. B&W tells me that this is normal, and wont harm the hitch or the pinbox. If you do not have a cushioned or air-ride pinbox, please get back with us and we and B&W will investigate this further.

This is an excellent 5th wheel hitch. I ordered one for a friend of mine a year ago. Fit his Dodge like a glove. I just bought a Dodge Ram 3500 and so I purchased this hitch for myself.

Quality is what I expected. Very well built and works great! Would highly recommend to anyone needing a fifth wheel hitch as a one time investment/purchase as you will not need to buy another one sometime down the road. If I had anything to say that I didn’t like about it would be the weight. It’s very heavy and it would take 2 people to take in and out of truck bed. But, that was to be expected. Received within a week of ordering. Easy to order and price was the best I seen! Thanks etrailer!! 613239

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

    I have a couple solutions that I think you'll like but there isn't an automatic sliding fifth wheel hitch that fits your 2018 Ram 2500 short bed with the OEM rail kit.
