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 - Fixed Fifth Wheel - BWRVK3700 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the BMW Companion Dual Jaw OEM Fifth Wheel Hitch for the Chevy and GMC towing prep packages. This has a 20,000 pound weight capacity. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2015 and newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks with the factory towing prep package. Now on any custom fit part I always like to recommend to go to our website, use our fit guide. Put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you if this will work for your application.

Now this fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. It's a very quick, simple installation. Basically you just drop this base into the 4 receiver pucks that are built in to your factory under-bed rails. It uses a quad return quick-lock puck system that allows easy mounting and removal of the hitch. Basically, just to show you how that works, you'll notice the 4 handles on each corner. What you'll do is you're going to go to drop this into the truck bed, is just pull the pin and clip out a 1/4 of a turn.

You just rotate that handle it moves the tab a 1/4 of a turn. You do that on each corner and then it'll line up and drop right into the puck system that's in your factory towing prep package. Once it's dropped in all you do is rotate that a 1/4 of a turn back on each corner, put your pin through the base and then through the handle, clip it into place and you're all locked in ready to go. If you notice on each one there's a adjustment nut right here so you can actually tighten it or loosen it to take up any slack if there's any slack there. Now because it uses the puck system that's all under the bed it's a rail free design. That'll allow for full access bed when you remove the hitch from your truck bed.

The jaws on this are a 1 inch thick dual jaw, which provide a 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact, and because of that it'll give you less rattle, more security than the slide bar jaws. The handle to open the jaws is a cam action latching handle, helps prevent binding. Basically, to open it all you do is remove the pin and clip right here, and you'll see it's a cam action so as you rotate it back you'll notice the dual jaws will open up wide to accept the kingpin. When the kingpin slides in it'll push up against the back of these dual jaws, force the handle into position. It'll pull the line up and then all you have to do is drop your pin and clip back in and it's locked in ready to go and the dual jaws are securely around the kingpin. The head on this is a fully articulating head, it eases hook up, helps eliminate any chucking.

You can see it's front to back. Side to side is hard to see because there does have to be weight on it, but it does have side to side movement also. Another nice thing about this is the head rests on these polyurethane bushings here on the pivot arms, so it'll give you a nice quiet rattle-free ride. On the pivot arms I mentioned, they're sort of triangular shaped and they mount to the base. That's what the head will sit on the pivot arms. Basically, those pivot arms will give you 2 different horizontal positions to put them in. Since they're triangular shaped you can put them this way or you can flip them the other way, and what that does is gives you the 2 different positions. Basically, the one position will align this kingpin over the axle of your tow vehicle. The other one, if you flip it around will move the kingpin 2 inches behind the axle and give you extra clearance for your cab. Also when you mount them onto the base there's 3 rows of holes, so it'll give you 3 vertical height settings to fit your application also, because you want the hitch head . When you're towing you want your fifth wheel and your tow vehicle to be as level as possible, so you want to make sure your hitch head adjustment is just correct for that purpose. You can bolt it into 3 different vertical height settings. Now, to remove them, the other nice feature about this, it does make it easy for one person to remove this from the truck bed. Basically all you have to do, is there's 2 pins right here. If you pull the clip you can pull these pins out, you can see they're tethered. You can do the same over here and then you just lift up on these handles right here. That'll allow you to lift this off the polyurethane bushings and you can set it aside. Once that's removed it makes the base lighter, and there's 2 handle openings right here. You can pick up the base and pull it out also. It makes it pretty easy for one person to remove this from the truck bed. You just go ahead and slide the pin back through and put the clip in; that's what holds the head to the pivot arms. Now, this is a grey powder coated steel which is very corrosion resistant. This part is made in the USA. A few specs on this, the application is for 2015 and newer Chevy, GMC trucks with the factory installed towing prep package. Gross towing weight capacity is 20,000 pounds. The tongue weight or pin weight capacity is 5,000 pounds. I mentioned the hitch height adjustment, and that's measured from your truck bed to the top of the hitch head. Depending on where you bolt that to it'll give you, I mentioned there's 3 different vertical hitch height adjustments, from 16 3/4 inches to 17 3/4 inches to 18 3/4 inches. What I'm going to do now is I just want to demonstrate how the kingpin would slide into the dual jaws. What we're going to do is take the pin and clip off, open the cam action handle. You can see the dual jaws open up. Here's an example of what a kingpin would be like on your fifth wheel. When you're hooking up that's going to be sliding into the dual jaws. As it slides in, again, it's going to push back on this handle and when you have weight on it of course it will push that handle right up into position like that. The dual jaws wrap around the kingpin, drop your pin and clip in, and you're locked into position. Keeps the dual jaws around the kingpin. Then when you're ready to unhook just remove the pin and clip, slide your cam action latching handle and it'll move right from the hitch head. Now, on this cam action handle here the hole is large enough, it comes with the pin and clip attachment. The hole is large enough you could put a padlock through there if you want extra security. We do sell padlocks separately that you could use also. That should do it for the review on the BMW Companion Dual Jaw OEM Fifth Wheel Hitch for the Chevy, GMC towing prep packages with a 20,000 pound weight capacity.

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

Yes I sure will go write a review. I love that hitch and thanks to GMC making my truck hitch ready it's a breeze and I don't need all them bulky rails and junk in my bed. Also the way it flex's and shock absorbs with that big heavy camper I got it is soooooo nice! I got a few friends who have said "Golly you paid that much for a hitch?" But hey, you want quality you pay for quality. You pay cheap, you get cheap. Thanks for following up cause I sure forgot about doing a review. 574587

I recently purchased a Curt A20 for GM Puck System and had a lot of noise issues from the hitch when starting and stopping. Curt claimed the spacing designed into the jaw system could make the noise or the factory brake controller is not programmed correctly to the weight of my trailer which is making the trailer to slam forward and then reverse. Curt also asked me to lock out my pin box (Rotaflex) to stop the potential over travel of the hitch head. I did lock out my pin box and it still made noise. Curt did send me a replacement head with no issues, but it unfortunately did not change the issue. At that point they told me there was nothing they could do if the hitch was within spec. It is performing to their design specifications. So....because I was not happy with the product, I decided to called etrailer and ordered a B&W Companion for the GM Puck system. They were extremely helpful with the order and it arrived very fast. I put it in the truck and connected the rv. Guess what no noise, no slamming. B&W did a great job in the design of this hitch to vertically eliminate any noises. I am so impressed with how quiet this hitch is that I should have strongly considered the B&W hitch in the first place. The price difference was difficult for me to justify initially, but now that I have had the two different hitches, it is more than worth the additional money. Overall, Curt tried to help me address the concern and makes good products. I believe the hitch would serve the purpose, but comparing it to the B&W, the B&W is definitely the best hitch I have experienced overall so far and etrailer is the place to get it from. 392973

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

I purchased this hitch to connect to the Chevy factory prepped 5th Wheel kit for a new 2017 Chev Silverado 3500 dually. My previous truck/ hitch combo (2015 Chev Silverado 3500 single axle 6.5’ bed w/ Reese Pro Series) used industry standard rails and there was quite a bit of movement in the entire hitch assembly and king pin area resulting in significant chucking on the horrible So. Cal. freeways. The B&W hitch was one of two recommended by the professionals at etrailer. I could not be happier. The hook-up is very easy & the overall operation of the hitch is much easier & simpler than my previous hitch. The 1” thick jaw makes a secure connection to the kingpin and the overall ride has smoothed out significantly. Great product so well liked that my son found a used one for sale and snapped it up for his rig. 504905

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

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. This hitch is incredibly heavy duty for my purposes of towing my new 5th wheel trailer. This thing is going to be instrumental over the next few years for me. Even took a picture with it looking good in my truck! 356821

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.

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

I have a 2018 GMC 3500 6 1/2 foot bed with the factory fifth wheel prep package. I just bought this fifth wheel hitch and towed with it once but it fits perfectly and tows beautifully, is very well built and is USA made. MAGA!! I have it set over the axle and have plenty of clearance because of the tapered front cap on my trailer. No bucking of jerking like the Reese titan hitch I previously had although it was on a slider. Awesome hitch don't hesitate to buy it. 542128

I look forward to using my new hitch shortly. Thanks. 462805

I am very happy with the B&W companion for my GMC with the OEM puck system. It was easy to install and is going to work great on my truck. I was worried about clearance with my bakflip bedcover on my 6.5 bed but it all worked out great. The photos, videos and Q & A really helped me make good decision so etrailer is going to continue to get my busness. 378216

Have not used it yet, but it seems very sturdy and easy to break down to remove it. It took a little time to put it together, but after it was assembled, it was easy to install and remove. It is quite heavy, but that is a trade-off to get a well made and sturdy hitch. The package arrived earlier than expected and no damage. It was good to go. 725779

After 6 months to a year finding a hitch, I decided to purchase the B&W. I reviewed several, talked to fifth wheel owners on what hitch they had, and the majority recommended the B&W. From it's easy to install and remove (if needed), how the hitch is built, It's heavy duty and looks like it's a hitch and rated for the 20k pounds compared to others out there on the market today, great customer service from both B&W and etrailer, I went with it for that reason. Now, after a year of use and 2 dozen pulls or so with it, no complaints. Had to make a small adjustment to it, to stop the "porpoising" affect, and after that, I have a nice smooth ride while towing our Montana 3700LK. 621650

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2019 GMC Sierra 3500 With Factory Prep Package
    The fifth wheel hitch I strongly recommend for your 2019 GMC Sierra 3500 is the B&W Companion because of how secure its jaws are and the quiet ride it gives you compared to other fifth wheel hitches on the market. The Companion will fit directly into your '19 Sierra 3500's puck system and is available with either a 20,000 lb towing capacity at part # BWRVK3700 or a 25,000 lb towing capacity at part # BWRVK3705.

This comes in both a 20K # BWRVK3700 and a 25K # BWRVK3705 version. We recommend having about a 2,000 lb cushion between the max weight rating of your 5th wheel hitch and the trailer you are towing.

    There are two reasons the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3700 only shows up for the 8 foot bed models of the 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with the factory rail kit. Biggest reason is because the rail kits between the short and long bed GM rail kits are different dimensions so the hitch won't physically fit. Also because for a short bed truck you'd want to use a slider hitch to have enough turning clearance like the # BWRVK3770 which does fit and would work well. If you have a...

The cam-action latching handle and fully articulating head work together to prevent binding and ease coupling and uncoupling of your king pin. The method in which the jaws work will be a better option than the Curt A25 # C16066 which has a similar coupling style to your Reese 16K.

    Since you have a short bed 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 with the factory rail kit you have to go with a slider hitch to allow you the clearance to make tight turns.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation into 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 with Factory Prep Package

  • Aftermarket or Factory 5th Wheel Package on 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500
    Given the option I'd choose the factory prep package in your new 2019 Chevy 2500. Mainly because this way your truck bed is clear when the hitch is removed. There are below bed kits available that do the same thing but they don't have an advantage over the factory kit. Unless you already have a hitch that fits above bed rails the factory kit is the way to go. For the hitch itself I recommend the B&W Companion, part # BWRVK3700. It fits the factory pucks in the Chevy's bed without...
