Fifth-Wheel Towing with Your Gooseneck Hitch

There are a variety of adapters on the market that let you tow a fifth-wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch. You can use a coupler adapter that replaces the pin box on your fifth-wheel trailer and then attaches to the gooseneck hitch in your truck bed. But these adapters often require modifications to your trailer that can void the warranty. Another option would be using fifth-wheel rails that mount directly to your gooseneck hitch, usually by dropping into the hitch's ball hole. But to do this you have to make 2 separate purchases - the adapter plate that has the rails and a standard fifth-wheel hitch.


With the Companion Flatbed from B&W, you get a heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch that mounts in your flatbed truck by connecting directly to your Turnoverball gooseneck hitch with the included components. No modifications are required to your truck or trailer. And no additional parts are required for the system to work.


Quiet, Secure Ride

The 1" thick jaw on the Companion Flatbed 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 Base with 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 Flatbed 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 Flatbed

To install the Companion Flatbed, first bolt the hitch base together and then mount the arms to the base. Then position the base so that the post on the bottom inserts into your Turnoverball hitch's ball hole (in place of the hitch ball). Secure the post using the handle of the Turnoverball, just as you would secure the hitch ball. The post is square like the base of your gooseneck hitch ball. This square design helps to eliminate any twisting or turning of the post - and therefore the mounted fifth-wheel hitch - in your gooseneck hitch.


To tighten the connection between your Turnoverball hitch and the Companion Flatbed, torque down the integrated drop-down bolt. This bolt runs through the crossmember of the Companion base and then down through the post. When you tighten the drop-down bolt, the base will be pulled closer to your truck bed, creating a more substantial connection. This, along with the square design of the post, helps to ensure maximum stability when you're towing.


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 Trailer Coupler BWRVK3050 Review

Today were going to review part number BWRVK3050. This is the BMW companion flat bed fifth wheel trailer hitch with the dual jaw design and a 22,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this is designed to fit on the BMW turn over ball under bed goose neck trailer hitch for flat bed trucks that we sell separately, its part number BWGNRK1500. If you have that under bed goose neck hitch installed in your flat bed, you can actually use this trailer hitch here to convert that goose neck hitch on your flat bed to be able to tow a fifth wheel trailer. The design of this is a rail free design basically it uses a square post right here on the center that would insert into that under bed goose neck hitch. Lock it into place then you are able to tow your fifth wheel trailer.Now, when youre done towing and you can remove this from your truck bed it will allow you full access to your truck bed when its removed.

Now, this hitch does have the one inch thick dual jaws right here that will provide a 360 degree jaw to king pin contact, that will give you less rattle, more security than those slide bar jaws. Right here it has the cam action latching handle which helps prevent binding. Basically this handle will allow you to quickly and easily release the jaws on the hitch. Even if youre on an uneven terrain, basically what you would do is just remove the clip, the pin. When youre going to hook up just push this and as you notice the two dual jaws will open wide.

Then when you back up into the king pin, the king ping would slide up in here.Push those, hits the back here, push those two jaws together which would wrap around the king pin and then as its pushing those jaws together it would move this handle back into position. Then right back here, if I can just turn this a little bit, these holes would line up and you can take this pin, drop it in, clip it into place that will lock the handle into place. Now this is large enough you could put a padlock through here if you prefer. We sell those separately, theyll give you extra security but it does some with this pinning clip attached. Basically what will then happen is then youre ready to tow this right now, when you get to where youre wanting and you want to release what youll have to do is just push the clip, hold the pin out, push this handle back.Now sometimes when you do that if theres any binding that might occur between the truck and the trailer, these jaws may remain closed when you move this handle to the open position but because the handle is unlatched, theres nothing thats keeping these jaws closed, except that binding pressure.

Simply if you just drive your truck forward a little bit it will be enough to force the jaws open and youre able to be detached from the fifth wheel trailer. This does have a fully articulating head, as you can see it does go front to back. This part up here the head will go side to side, its hard to show it because its very tight but this head part right here will go side to side.Its a fully articulating head that will help this hook up, help the limit chucking. Give you a quiet rattle free ride because this head right here sits on this polyurethane bushings which are right underneath here. This is a very quick simple installation, this RV square post right here will install in the ball hole of your BMW turn over flat bed trailer hitch.

This base attaches to that post and then the hitch head just drops on to the bushings. Has a gray powder coat finish, its a coated steel which is corrosion resistant. It is made in the USA. Now this does have a gross towing weight capacity of 22,000 pounds. Vertical load limit of 5,500 pounds and a limited five year warranty.I just want to show you that feature again. Heres take the pin, take the pin out, push the handle back you can see it opens up. King pin slides in, pushes the jaws closed, moves the handle up and then just drop your pin in to lock it into position, and youre ready to go. Now, the other nice thing is when youre going to remove this, when youre done towing and you want to remove it instead of trying to take the whole unit out which is pretty heavy. You can just pull these clips right here, slide these pins right out. Theyre attached so you wont lose them. Then if you just grab both of these handles right here, theyre rubber coated in the end, and then squeeze that and then pick up at the same time. You can lift this head right off the polyurethane bushing.Then you can hand take that off, and then when you remove this its a lot easier instead of trying to remove it all together. Now, one thing when you do remove this head, I recommend you look underneath at the very center underneath, if you flip it upside down there will be a grease inaudible 00:04:46 fitting. Youll notice there what you want to do is eventually over time, you just want to keep greasing that. What that does is it lubricates this copper right here to make it easier to articulate for the head to articulate. That should do it for the review on part number BWRVK3050, the BMW companion flat bed fifth wheel trailer hitch. .

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


I have had this hitch for a year now, and pulled 5000+ miles. The hitch has been flawless with one exception. I experienced a problem with the factory puck system mounting (Ford truck). When taking the hitch out before winter, I noticed a couple of latches were loose. I assumed the castle nut just needed to be tightened a hole or two. However, what I found was that even if I tightened the castle nut all the way, it would still not latch to the truck (no resistance when turning the handle). After numerous calls with B&W, they sent me new cam latches. However, those did not solve the problem. B&W thought maybe the shear pins sheared, and cause the cam to loosen. However, I don't believe this is the case. The shear pins were intact and the cam was in the exact same position as the new cam latches I received. Also, I had never over-tightened them. Apparently B&W has seen problem when user use a hammer to close the latched. I've never done that, so I don't think that was my issue. It appears to me they have a tolerance stack-up issue, and their factory setup does not accommodate the variations from vehicle to vehicle, or the compression of their spring washer. To resolve, I used a large washer below the spring washer to take up the excess slack and still keep the castle nut at a level where it lined up with the cotter pin hole. This problem was a little nerve racking, since this is the sole mechanism for securing the hitch to the truck. This is not where you want to have a problem! Aside from this issue, as critical as I felt it was, I would still recommend this hitch. The ease of removing is awesome. The towing experience is good, although I have not used any other 5th wheel hitch so I can't really say this one is the best on the market. I would buy one again though. 256797

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


--------------This is a very strong hitch with an innovative mount.-------------------- I have been using the hitch for about a year now. I purchased the combo kit with the gooseneck in bed parts as well as the 5th wheel assembly. I purchased this unit because it can provide both the gooseneck and 5th wheel modes. I installed mine in a 2014 RAM 3500 DRW which already has the basic structure under the bed so the install went very well. I completed the install at home, which took about 4-5 hours. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, plus there are several installation demonstration videos online for my exact truck, so after watching those it was no problem. The 5th wheel works well with no squeaks or rattles. I pull a 35' 13,500lb toy hauler. The hitch parts are made of thick heavy steel which really gives confidence it will pull the heavy loads. The king pin jaws also seem a bit larger and more heavy duty than other hitches with the same ratings. The hitch also has a lot of adjustments both up and down, and for and aft, which helped to dial in the hitch very well to my trailer. It does convert from 5th wheel to gooseneck easy enough. Just remember it does require a socket to relieve the tension on the gooseneck adapter before it can be released. This is not a big deal, just makes sure to bring a wrench along if you are planning to swap modes while away from home. There is only one small aspect that keeps me from rating the hitch as excellent. I have noticed that the paint/coating scrapped of rather easily in the mouth of the coupler. I guess I rubbed the side of the mouth with the trailer pin when coupling up and it caused the paint to scrape off. Since then the coating is also starting to peel all around the jaw area. 264228

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

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 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.

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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!

Super fast shipping, came in on time. Convenient 2 boxed packages. Heavy! I started installing around 5:30pm, was hooking up to 5th wheel and testing at 7:15pm... Couple of interruptions would have been quicker. My Rep, Chris W. was extremely helpful, pleasure working with her! Whole unit is quality IMHP... Being safety freak I added some extra lock washers & nuts to flange plate bolts... Bolt sticks out roughly 3/4 inch after torqueing to 80lbs. per instructions. Added washer and nut to complete very solid connection... I could not be more happy or impressed with whole operation... Feel much better about cost now that I have laid hands on it...

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

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

We just recently ordered B&W Hitch for our 2017 F350 Dually Long Bed. The process was very smooth. We ordered the Hitch, and we received it within 2 days. It was well packaged and would recommend the hitch. We have not towed with it as of yet, but I can tell its already going to be better than my old Curt Q16 Hitch, Hands Down. Thanks for making this process smooth and Customer Service was great with answering all my questions. Only recommendations to make the install go smoother would be to include the Hex Head Bolt wrench to tighten the handle. 349443

I ordered the hitch online sight unseen. I rarely do this but after reading all the reviews on the hitch, and not just on etrailer.com, 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 etrailer.com's service. Their communication throughout the whole process has been great and I even received confirmation today, both from my wife and an etrailer.com 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 etrailer.com again in the future! 206506

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.

World Largest Mobile Kitchen B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs - BWRVK3300 is the most innovative towing products I have seen in a long time. It fit into the Ford hitch system with no problems. It is a shame that Ford, Chevy, and Dodge cannot have a universal mounting like the receiver hitches so that they fit all trucks. It is designed to be either directly above axle or 4 inches ahead. 273767

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

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

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.

Love it. 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

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

The B&W hitch arrived in 3 days, in perfect condition. The packaging was top-notch. The assembly and installation instructions were clear and straightforward to follow. The hitch fit perfectly in the Ford factory-installed mounting points. I chose the B&W hitch even though it was a bit more expensive. After seeing the hitch, I'm impressed with the quality and "beefiness". This hitch is definitely heavy duty. I haven't hooked it to my trailer yet, but I'm confident it will be a perfect connection. This is a huge improvement over my previous Reese 16k slider hitch. This is my first transaction with etrailer.com. I'm impressed with the ease of ordering and the very fast shipment. 199176

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.

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.

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.

This hitch came as exactly advertised. It fits perfectly into the bed of my F350 Super Duty that was 5th wheel ready. It is solid and nice looking as well. I saved lots of money by purchasing and installing it myself. It is not only the product that deserves an excellent rating but trailer as well. When I found the same hitch for a bit less they honored their pledge to credit the difference by 110%. They were wonderful and a company that will get my business over and over again and you should to. Many kudos for a company that "does it right".

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.

The hitch came in just a few days, UPS delivered it in great condition. I installed it in about an hour and a half with the help of a friend. Installation was straight forward. Watch the online videos and review the I-sheets. It doesn't get much easier. I haven't pulled a trailer with it yet but judging by the design it will work better than expected. I purchased this on the recommendation of 2 friends that use this system with the Companion Fifth Wheel. It is so much easier to remove the Companion than my previous hitch and have a completely unobstructed pick up bed to use. MADE IN THE USA...! What more could you want? 345353

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

I picked this up because I wanted to get rid of the goose-neck that the previous owner had put on my 5th wheel camper and go back to towing with the kingpin. I already had a B&W turnover ball installed in my truck so this hitch made a lot of sense to buy. The hitch goes in fairly easy, but be warned it is quite heavy. I can manage it by myself but feel much better having someone help my get it in the truck. It tows great and it very well built. I would highly recommend it to anyone that has a turnover ball and does not want to drill a bunch of holes in the bed of their truck. 431357

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Ram 2500 with B and W Turnoverball
  • The B&W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3050 you referenced would be a great fit for your 2014 Ram 2500 if it had a B and W Turnoverball hitch and a flat bed installed. If you didn't have a flat bed you'd instead want the part # BWRVK3500.

  • How to Install a Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch on a Flat Bed Truck
  • Since you have a flatbed on your truck now the only recommended way to use a Companion hitch will be to first use the # BWGNRK1500 as a gooseneck hitch and then for a fifth wheel hitch you would need the # BWRVK3050. The # BWGNRK1108 that you had previously installed on your truck is not compatible with flatbed trucks so there would be no recommended way for you to use it.

  • Availability of Adapter to Allow B&W Companion Hitch to Fit Round Gooseneck Ball Receptacle
  • All of the gooseneck balls for your factory hitch have a round shank. There is no adapter product to convert that round gooseneck ball receptacle to a square one that can accept the B&W Companion 5th wheel # BWRVK3500 or the flatbed version # BWRVK3050. If you truck did NOT have the factory rail kit you could install the B&W Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # BWGNRK1111-5W which would then allow you to use the Companion 5th wheel hitch.

  • Height of the B and W Flat Bed Fifth Wheel Hitch part # BWRVK3050
  • The B and W Flat Bed Fifth Wheel Hitch part # BWRVK3050 will set 10-1/2 inches above the deck height of the flat bed truck it is installed in. I attached a review video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Base Dimensions of B&W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter BWRVK3050
  • The B&W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3050 is intended specifically for use in trucks that have their gooseneck installation kit # BWGNRK1500. This gooseneck hitch has a square opening that accepts the square shank portion of the 5th wheel adapter. My B&W contact advised that most users of this adapter, whose base measures 18 x 18-inches, will install it in an opening that measures 20 x 20 x 4-inches deep. The recessed opening cannot be more than...

  • How to Level Fifth Wheel Trailer Using B&W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • You are correct that the B&W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3050 does not have a height adjustment. The head is approximately 10-1/2 inches off the deck of the flatbed. The amount of weight that's being put onto the truck isn't really the issue you need to watch out for but rather how level your trailer and your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 are. If they're not sitting level, then you may be able to adjust your pin box to a lower set of bolt holes...

  • How Tall Will Companion Hitch for Flat Bed Trucks Sit Above Truck Bed
  • If you already have a Companion hitch head then all you would need is the part # BWRVB3055 to use your current head on your flat bed truck. If you don't have a Companion already you would instead need the part # BWRVK3050 as it comes with the head and the lower piece you mentioned. The head of this hitch will sit 10-1/2 inches above the deck of your flat bed truck. The regular Companion sits 16-1/4" - 18-1/4" inches above the bed of the truck.

  • B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a Flatbed Truck
  • There is actually a special B&W Companion hitch designed specifically for use on a flatbed truck. It is # BWRVK3050. It works the same way but is lower profile since flatbeds tend to be higher than regular pickup truck beds. Your flatbed truck would have to have a B&W Turnover Ball gooseneck hitch for the Companion to work. If your flatbed does not have this hitch you can install one using # BWGNRK1500.

  • How Much Side To Side Movement Does the Companion Hitch Have

  • Best Fifth Wheel Towing Setup for a 2013 GMC Sierra
  • If you wanted the ultimate fifth wheel setup I would recommend installing a 5th Airborne Sidewinder pin box on the trailer and then a stationary hitch. Sidewinders move the pivot point of the hitch further back which allow the trailer to track better around corners and makes for easier backing up. These are usually recommended for short bed trucks but they improve trailer handling on long bed trucks as well. Since companion hitches aren't recommended for use with Sidewinders unless...

  • Recommended Way to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer Using a B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch
  • The best fifth wheel hitch to use with the B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch is the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500. That's exactly what it's designed for. However, it's 16-1/4 inches from the bed of the truck. Another option that may work for you is the B&W Companion for Flatbed Trucks # BWRVK3050. The hitch sits about 10-1/2 inches from the truck bed. With an adapter that allows the trailer to sit level it's likely to be very close to the bed rails. You want at the very least 6 inches...

  • Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch And Companion For Flatbed Truck
  • It sounds like you are looking for the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Flatbed Trucks, part # BWGNRK1500. This hitch requires welding for installation, and is designed for 1/8 inch floor plates. The hitch plate measures 6 inches x 8 inches. You can check out the attached installation instructions to make sure the mounting location for this hitch doesn't interfere with anything under the bed of your truck.

  • B&W 5th Wheel Companion Hitch for a 2005 GMC Sierra 3500 Long Bed
  • If your 2005 GMC Sierra 3500 has a flat bed on it with the flat bed version of the Turnover Ball gooseneck trailer hitch then yes, you could use the B&W Companion # BWRVK3050. But if the truck has the regular truck bed or you don't have the Turnover Ball hitch then it will not work. If your truck does have the Turnover Ball hitch the Companion you would need is # BWRVK3500-5W. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you. If your truck has a different gooseneck hitch or doesn't...

  • Availability of Adapters to Allow Gooseneck Hitch to Tow 5th Wheel Trailer
  • If your CM Truck Bed is their ER model my contact at CM said that if it is a later model the trough where the ball sits should be about 20-inches wide and this will be enough room to use the B&W Companion 5th wheel adapter # BWRVK3050. This hitch features a fully articulating head and dual jaws for less rattle at the king pin. It is rated for 22,000-lbs towing and 5500-lbs pin weight.

  • Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Adapter Recommendation for Use with a Remove a Ball Gooseneck
  • There are gooseneck adapters that could work for your Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 6300 that you have installed in your truck, but the B&W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck # BWRVK3050 that you referenced would only install into a B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1500. I would recommend the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5G. This will install onto the king pin of your trailer and will attach to the gooseneck hitch you have in your truck.

  • Recommended B&W 5th Wheel Hitch for 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Long Bed with B&W Gooseneck
  • Since you already have a B&W gooseneck hitch in the bed of your Silverado 3500 your conversion to 5th wheel towing will be easy and effective. Since your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 is a long bed truck you can use a fixed Companion 5th wheel hitch # BWRVK3500-5W from B&W that will drop right into the gooseneck ball hole. The Companion is rated for 20K and it features exceptionally solid build quality and a double-pivoting mount for easier hitching on uneven ground. Many would argue...

  • How Does B and W Gooseneck Hitch Attach to Frame of Truck
  • To install the B and W Hitch part # BWGNRK1500 you will need to provide 1/4 thick brace straps to attach the hitch to the frame of the trailer. If you check out the install instructions I attached you can see more about the install process. The Companion hitch you would need is the part # BWRVK3050 then. This only has a 22k capacity though.
