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.

Today we're going to take a look at the B&W Companion Dual Jaw OEM 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch with the Slider for the Ram towing prep package. This has a 20,000 pound weight capacity. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2013 and newer Ram trucks with the factory installed towing prep package. Now this 5th-Wheel Hitch is designed to mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your 5th-wheel trailer and again it's designed to work with that factory installed 5th-wheel towing prep package from Ram. This one has a nice built in slider, which will provide extra clearance which is about 12" front to back and that's required for your short bed truck to turn safely at slow speeds. It is a rail free design so it does allow for full access to your truck bed when it is removed from the bed.

The head on this has the nice 1" thick dual jaws, which will provide a nice 360 jaw to king pin contact and because of that it will give you less rattle, more security than slide bar jaws. The handle right here is a cam-action latching handle, helps prevent any binding. It's very simple to release even on unlevel terrain and it is lockable to secure your trailer to the hitch. It comes with the pin and clip, that when you remove it, then you can operate the handle to open the jaws, but the hole is large enough that if you wanted you could put a padlock through there. Now the padlocks we do sell separately on our website.

That would give you extra security. The head on this is a fully articulating head, which will ease hookup, helps limit chucking. Pivots front to back and then the head side of plate right here will also go side to side. When you do install this, when you go to tow your 5th-wheel, you want your tow vehicle and your 5th-wheel to be as level as possible, so when you bolt your pivot arms to the slider that the head sits on, you want them to be as level, so it will give you three different hitch height settings to fit your application. Anywheres from 17" to 19". That measurement is from your truck bed to your hitch head.

You want to get that correct for your application, so basically there's four rows of holes on the slider portion, so when you mount your pivot arms to that you get that choice of the three hitch height settings. It will give you a nice quiet rattle-free ride because this head sits on the pivot arms which at the top have polyurethane bushings. This is very quick and simple installation into your vehicle. Basically it will just drop into the floor receiver pucks that are built into your factory underbed rails. Right here on each corner, pop open the pinning clip, rotate your handle out and that will rotate the tab and you do that on every corner, and then it's open ready to go. You can just drop it right into the pucks.

Once it drops into place, turn each handle, about 1/4 of a turn, and it will rotate that tab to lock it into your pucks, and you do that on each corner and then it's locked in all ready to go for very simple and fast. The finish on this is a nice gray powder coated steel, which is corrosion resistant. This part is made in the USA and again the application, this is for 2013 and newer Ram trucks, with the factory installed towing prep package. Gross towing weight capacity is 20,000 pounds. Vertical load limit is 5,000 pounds. Again the hitch height we mentioned can be adjusted anywheres from 17" to 19". Again the travel on the slider is from towing position to maneuvering is 12" front to back. The footprint on the slider is about 37" wide by about 43" long, and the last thing here I just want to show you how the jaws and the hitch head work, and how the slider operates. Again, if you're going to go to hook up, just unlock your handle. Take your pin and clip off. Take your cam latching handle, open it up and you'll see the jaws open up and just to give you an idea, this is what the kingpin would be like on your 5th-wheel, so when you're backing up to hook up here, your kingpin will go right into the hitch head and push up against this handle, and with more weight on it, there's no weight right now, but if there . the 5th-wheel will put more weight on it, it will move that handle right into place as it goes up in there. Once it moves and locks into place, just take your pin and clip, drop it through the hole, latch it and it will lock it and keep your kingpin in place. Then if you want to operate the slider, right now it's locked in the towing position, which means it's closest to the cab of the tow vehicle. If you get into a place where you're going to have to make some sharp turns, like a campground or something, just take this handle, push it up, that will unlock it and you'll notice that it automatically as you maneuver your vehicle and your 5th-wheel, it will go to 12" and once it hits the maneuvering position all the way, it will lock, the handle will go down and lock it into place and then when you're done maneuvering, when you want to get back to towing and move this closer to the cab, same way, just push it to unlock it, simple as that. Then you'll notice as you're moving, this will just slide back to the towing position and lock right into place. Very easy application. That should do it for the review on the B&W Companion Dual Jaw OEM 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch with the Slider for the Ram towing prep package. This has a 20,000 pound weight capacity. .

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.

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

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.

Great instructions. Easy to install. The video tutorials on product reviews, installation instructions, etc. on etrailer.com have helped me do research and to choose the right product for my needs. This is the second B&W Companion hitch I have used to pull a 16,000lb GVWR 5th wheel trailer. The first was the companion to the turnover ball hitch, and this one is companion to the Ford OEM gooseneck prep system (puck connect). Just finished pulling our trailer home from the RV dealer. Worked great!!!! Lastly, the ordering process, shipment tracking and overall communication with etrailer staff is fantastic. 615173

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


I installed my B&W Companion into the 5th wheel truck bed package, knowing after viewing several YouTube videos, that it should work just fine, without a slider type. My 2017 Ford F350 Super Duty 6.7L Diesel crew cab short box (6'-9") with our 2018 #3120RL Montana 5th wheel trailer work great with the B&W Companion. I estimate our max turn backing angle at 85°(don't know why I'd ever cut that tight anyway). A 5er front nose will need a radius and be tapered to make this work so great in my opinion. The Companion mounts easily into the puck system and splits into upper and lower halves for easy lifting. See my attached pictures. 483456


Comments

After a season of many trips, we are pleased with the B&W Companion hitch, since our 5er has a radius front end, we have plenty enough room to back into our camping sites. The hitch itself articulates in all four axis very well and is quite silent will running.

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

Purchased this per recommendation from Jared. This thing was a direct bolt in for my truck as he said it would be. Took me less than an hour to assemble and install.

Great Hitch, secure latching and quiet on the road. (No Chucking, unlike the bolt on hitch in my last truck). It is relatively easy to remove and re-install - I'm 67! I have a small problem Unhitching when there is any pressure between vehicles, the jaws will not let loose unless holding the release lever open as I pull away.

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Fifth Wheel


Overall quality of the product is excellent, very easy to hitch and unhitch. A couple of minor issues that would seem to be easy to correct, and would be consistent with such a high quality unit: The instructions were not too informative about how to attache the product arms to the base: it is quite awkward, even with two people. After completion, it would have been much easier to invert the base on a stand, and attach the arms 'upside down'. Having this in the instructions would have saved a lot of time and effort. The little spring clip that keeps the hitch head at a slight angle towards the trailer looks like an after thought, and here again, the instructions were weak. It indicates that the clip should be tapped on with a hammer, but this is, in fact, quite difficult to do. A better attachment system is called for, the only weak item on the entire hitch. 455680

Best Hitch on the market if you have ford factory gooseneck prep system. Heavy Duty, and secure. No more chucking back and forth. Would recommended 100 times over. Customer service was super, and free shipping was awesome. Arrived a day earlier than anticipated. Etrailer is top notch 198684

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

Shipping was fast! Paid for the 3 day but it came a day sooner than scheduled. The hitch was easy to install on my 2017 F-350 with pre-installed fifth wheel pkg (8’ bed). I also tow a 36’ keystone carbon toyhauler and I use the middle setting for the hitch and it sits level. Hitch is quiet and makes the ride smooth! 488834

5 Stars - Ease of Installation 2 Stars - Quality of material 2 Stars - Durability in operation 4 Stars - Quietness in operation 2 Stars - Packaging to prevent damage **Could not see until installed and looking at the the hitch from the tailgate, the right side of the receiver plate was bent down. I was in a bind and had to use the hitch so chances of returning are nil. It was fairly quiet especially on interstate driving. The high point where the hitch bends down put stress on the "good" side scraping off the paint. I do not have to move my RV for a few months, so I will probably scrap the B&W hitch and purchase the Reese Hitch 27.5 which I saw today at my local Ford Dealership. It looks more durable and stronger than the BWRVK3300. Give 5 Stars to etrailer.com, this was a smooth transaction; shipping was great and received on time. 497564

Great hitch! Piece of cake to install on my 2018 F350. The etrailer installation video was helpful as well! 588777

Hitch has worked perfectly. No clunking or popping sounds. Only negative comment which is not a fault of the hitch, it is very heavy. 504161

Great Fifth Wheel Hitch. Came with a sharp edge that obviously occurred at the factory however, I filed off and re painted. Other than that, I'm totally satisfied and would recommend this hitch to all. A "No Brainer". B & W is simply the best. 573981

Outstanding customer service/support coupled with a great product at a great price...what more can you ask for? My hitch arrived with superb packaging and simple to follow instructions. Being super meticulous, I installed my hitch in a couple of hours. The Companion's design works fantastic with the OEM puck system in my new 2017 Silverado 3500HD Dually! Really looking forward to hooking up my new 5th wheel and hitting the road! If you are in the market for a new hitch, definitely consider the Made In America B&W Companion 3700 5th wheel hitch! 438853

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

My first fifth wheel and hitch so I've not experienced the bad. I'm no dummy when it comes to fabrication and welding - this puppy is a thing of beauty! Not recommended for frail old men humping it in and out, lol. I've used it a few times now and backed my wheeler up and into spots where it didn't belong, this unit didn't flinch. Zero noise back there and a breeze to load/offload from any angle and direction. Glad I did my homework. I like how I can lock the base with a simple padlock, just need to figure out a simple way to lock the upper on. Thanks etrailer! 574125

So far it has been great! Being 65yrs old I was apprehensive about trying to assemble and load the hitch with just my wife to help. I remedied that by loading everything into the bed of my truck, including my tools and assembled it in place. Not being up to speed on RAMs puck system I did not know what to expect. I assembled the hitch, torqued it to spec and it dropped into place with out further adjustments or fanfare. I pull a 34' 5th wheel and don't even know it is back there. Hitching and unhitching is a breeze with very little learning curve. That says a lot since my learning curve more resembles a U-turn. Thank you B&W for a great hitch, thank you etrailers for a great deal. 468153

We are very impressed with the B&W hitch. My wife and I both hitch and unhitch without any problems. Ill say it again. Thanks B&W for a great hitch and thanks etrailer for a great deal.

I installed the hitch in my 2018 Chevy 3500HD DRW last night took around an hour. overall the quality is very good on the B&W Companion hitch and it fits into the factory puck system perfect. I have it set on the highest setting but still have to hook up 5th wheel to see if this is correct position or not to give me the correct clearance. Looking forward to trying it out this weekend. The package arrived on time and no damage. 466120

The hitch was ordered online and featured fast shipping. I received it in 4 days in 2 boxes, both undamaged. I previously had a Pullrite 16k hitch in my previous truck. Bought a newer truck and started researching hitches a few months ago. Everyone was so positive about B&W and it is made in the USA so that sealed the deal for us. Daughter and I installed in my Ford puck system in about 45 min. Very easy to install and the operation of the hitch is simple. I liked my Pullrite just fine-experienced a slight bit of chucking. No chucking at all with this hitch. Etrailer had the best price on the hitch. 572834

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

  • Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ram 2500 Short Bed Pickup with Factory Prep
  • In your short-bed Ram 3500 that has the factory rail kit the available slider-type 5th wheel hitches offer slider travel that ranges from 8- to 14-inches. All are shown on the linked page. Single-jaw designs often have less rattle and they also typically have fewer parts, which can be considered advantages. But certain dual jaw hitches can still be considered superior to certain single-jaw types. B&W makes superb products like their Companion 5th wheel slider # BWRVK3670 which will...

  • For a perfect fit in your 2018 Ram 3500 with factory rails, I recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20K # BWRVK3670. This slider is an easy fit designed specifically for your truck. This hitch is made in the USA and has 12 inches of travel front to back. There are other 5th wheel hitches that will work but they require an adapter. For an auto sliding option, you can use the rail adapter # DM6099 and then hitch...

  • Recommended 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2017 Ram 2500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3270 referenced in your question can be used on your 2017 Ram 2500 with the factory rail kit by using the Reese Rail Adapter # RP30154. The B&W Patriot is compatible with industry-standard, above-bed rails, which is exactly what mounting the Reese Rail Adapter to your factory puck system will provide. Because the Reese Rail Adapter uses the existing puck mounting system, no drilling will be required during installation. I have...

  • All 5th Wheel Hitch Options for Factory RAM Towing Prep Package
  • There are several 5th wheel hitches that will fit the factory RAM towing prep package hole pattern. I'll list out the options we offer below along with a few recommendations. The article you found was likely an old article. RAM sort of botched the release of their OEM 5th wheel package back in 2012/2013 and they started selling trucks with the factory mounting kit before a hitch was actually designed and released. The trucks were sold for about 6 months before a hitch was actually released....

  • Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ram 3500 Dually Mega Cab with Factory Pucks
  • For your 2017 Ram 3500 dually that has the 6-foot bed and factory rail kit my best recommendation for a sliding hitch is the 20K-rated B&W Companion # BWRVK3670. The build quality of B&W hitches is unmatched and over 300 of our customers that have selected this hitch have rated it with almost a perfect score! The Companion drops right into your pucks - no adapters required - and it offers 12-inches of slider travel, a double-pivoting head for easier hitching and a double jaw system...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ram 2500 With 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • The fifth wheel hitch I strongly recommend for your 2018 Ram 2500 with the factory puck system is the B&W Companion # BWRVK3670. The Companion is considered by many to be the highest-quality fifth wheel hitch available. It features dual jaws which are a full 1" thick to provide complete contact with your king pin so you can have faith that your connection is completely secure. I've added a picture of the jaws so you can see for yourself how impressive they are. The Companion is also...

  • Is Curt A25 5th Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ram 2500 Short Bed Pre-Assembled and Allow 90 Degree Turns
  • The Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 25,000 lbs Item # C16046 does not come fully assembled but really just about all you would have to do is attach the head to the legs. Since your 2017 Ram 2500 has the 6-1/2 foot bed you will likely not be able to make 90 degree turns with a fixed hitch. The only exception would be a very narrow 5th wheel trailer or one that comes with a tapered front cap. And even then you still might not be able to make a...

  • 5th Wheel Slider Hitch for 2016 Ram 2500 Diesel Short-Bed
  • Your 2016 Ram 2500 diesel certainly has the grunt required to tow a trailer that weighs half its rated towing capacity, but since you have a short-bed pickup you will need a slider type hitch that will give you the necessary clearance between the cab and trailer to make tight turns. If your short bed has the factory 5th wheel rail kit you can use the superb 20K B&W hitch # BWRVK3670 which drops right into the 4 pucks in the bed. This slider gives you a full 12-inches of travel to give...
