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.


B&W Companion Simple Removal

With the Companion from B&W, you get a heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch that mounts in your truck bed 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 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

To install the Companion, position the slider base so that the post 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.


The next step is to 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.


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.

B&W Companion Slider Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs - BWRVK3400

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (358 Customer Reviews)

Quickly and easily convert your B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch to a sturdy 5th-wheel trailer hitch. Built-in slider helps eliminate clearance concerns during slow-speed turns. Dual-jaw hitch removes without a trace for full bed access.

The B&W Companion hitch is great. I pull a 40 foot fifth wheel at about 14000 lbs. Great ride with no "chucking". It can be tough to take in and out of bed. I use a small utility tractor with pallet forks and that makes it real easy to do by yourself. If not, plan on two people at least to put in and take out.




by:

Have not assembled yet. But looks fully in tack. Will see in a couple of days. Looks well made, heavy steel product. I'm excited, so let's see.




by:

Well built 5th wheel hitch. Simple to use and works great. Instructions were easy to read and understand. Took maybe an hour to put together and was hooking up to my camper.

I knew this was big, but I didn't know it was THIS BIG! I have an '03 Ford F250 SuperDuty, Crew Cab, 4x4, short bed with a B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck hitch, and this slider was highly recommended by many across the internet and locally.

My delivery date was about 20-days out from order date, however, it came 13 days early, much to my uninformed surprise. T-Force shippers came by my home at least 2x and did not even call me so I could arrange to be present to help them. My wife happened to come home and the driver had just turned around in our cul-de-sac and saw her pull in the driveway.

The T-Force driver was able to connect with my wife, and he was so kind and professional during the entire delivery. Much to my surprise, the driver brought the entire shipment into my garage and was sooo kind to allow my wife a moment to clear a convenient space for the hitch. The driver actually brought the hitch INTO my garage and did not leave it at the curb like so many other shippers have done with other items I have purchased over the years!

I AM AMAZED AND THANKFUL FOR THE T-FORCE DRIVER and his PROFESSIONALISM!

I read the shipping documents when I came home and saw that the entire shipment was 310 lbs, not sure if the pallet and boxes were included, I have to assume YES, but expect the hitch to weigh about 250lbs - 275lbs, and I cannot find a weight in the item on etrailer.

It took 3 of us to lift the base into the bed of my truck and get it seated into the gooseneck hitch. I still have to adjust the runners for the bed ridges, but that will be easy enough when it warms up a bit. My intent was to get the garage floor space back.

I did not even notice it being in the truck as the ride seems to be about the same, but I do not wish to keep it in the truck when not being used so I can use my truck like a truck. The hitch takes up most of the bed of my short bed F250, and I hope to experience that I made a good choice with the slider in a week or two.

Due to the weight of the assembly, I am going to try and use my engine hoist to install/remove it as I cannot do so by myself, it is extremely heavy and awkward. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Unless you have adequate help, you should consider how you will remove it from your vehicle.

Overall my experience with eTrailer over the years has been perfect and this purchase was perfect as well. eTrailer has been consistent with me and I like that.

The quality of the B&W products, MADE IN AMERICA, are TOP NOTCH and EXPENSIVE. But you get what you pay for and I would in no way risk my families safety on some cheap CHINAMART equipment like this.

I am WELL PLEASED with the B&W gear and eTrailer service and I will return.

I am very pleased with it

I purchased the B&W 20K Companion Slider & Underbed Mount System (UMS) for my 2015 Ford F150 extended cab (with 6 foot bed) over a year ago because it was the only solution that was removable. Construction and finish was very nice and still looks great. Installation wasn't too difficult but the 4” hole in the bed needs to be exact otherwise getting it square will be very difficult. Overall the slider works great but must be mounted directly on the bed and cannot be mounted over a plastic bed liner. Once installed everything worked great however after numerous trips I've yet to need or use the slider backing up as I can turn 80+ degrees without ever hitting or coming close to the truck cab (towing 2018 Cougar Half Ton Series 5th wheel). Also the slider is very heavy (head 75 lbs + base 207 lbs = 282 lbs) to remove and install (takes two people or an overhead winch). Plus the overall hitch weight (head, base & UMS is 394 lbs) puts me very close to the GVWR once the truck & trailer is fully loaded hence in hindsight I probably should have gone with the fixed 5th wheel hitch (total just 318 lbs compared to 400 lbs) instead as it would have saved 81 lbs and costs $489 less but at least I have the option to slide it back if ever needed.

If you have a short bed truck this is the tool for the job if you’ve ever blown out a back window or dented your cab (like me) OK I’m able to put my fifth wheel and tire place is that a long bed truck would not be able to do




by:

Outstanding service! Excellence from order through professional delivery.




by:

I have ordered from etrailer before and was impressed with them and the product. I ordered a very large 5th wheel hitch, I explained to them my situation of needing it.
They pushed up the ship date even with all the shipping delays, they came through.
There are not enough words to say how wonderful and helpful etrailer staff are.
I will only order from etrailer .
Thank you etrailer you are fabulous




by:

I absolutely love my Companion hitch. It is the quietest hitch I have ever owned.
It also has the the strongest and thickest jaws around the fifth wheel king pin I have ever owned. The slide is very easy to operate and even though it is quite heavy for a 69 year old man to take it out and put it in my truck I still would recommend it to anyone who needs a combo gooseneck and fifth wheel hitch set up.
There is absolutely no slop or movement of the king pin in the jaws, unlike most other style fifth wheel hitches that I have owned in the past.
In my opinion you would have to go way out on a limb to try and top this one.

Still feel the same. This fifth wheel hitch is awesome. Totally love it and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a great hitch. The ordering process and assistance I received was top notch. Quick delivery as well.

the Campanion Slider worked better than I anticipated, Very stable ride and easy to use. The shipping was also excellent, it arrived ahead of schedule.




by:

This hitch feels incredibly well made and B&W customer support is incredible. One of the bed rail strips came loose after a month or so of owning it and only a few uses. Turns out the screw was stripped. After contacting B&W looking to purchase a replacement as it was likely my mistake, they sent a whole new strip free of charge. I will definitely purchase B&W products from etrailer again.

I love it. And B&W support is great.

Upgraded to the B&W slider from an Anderson Ultimate. The reason was the short bed truck I'm pulling with. Initially the hitch was awesome and slid easily. While it says there is no lubrication required, it started sliding really hard (had to hold the trailer brakes and jerk the truck forward pretty hard to get it to slide back). I tried dry lube - no better. Finally shot some wd-40 on the slide bars and under the hitch and it's back to gliding pretty well. Another shortfall are the rubber bumpers that are and the end of each slide rail - they don't hold the hitch tight enough in position so I do get some noise as the hitch moves (ever so slightly) back and forth. The hitch is solid (heavy) and well built. If buying again I'd likely get an auto slider even with the extra weight it costs me in the bed of the truck




by:

Great product. The sliding adapter allows for a trouble free parking experience. This is the smartest purchase I've made in a long time. Our fellow traveling family bought a fixed gooseneck hitch. Didn't work out so well. My buddy put a dimple in the upper left rear corner of his new 2017 F-250 due to lack of clearance with his fifth wheel. Broke out his back window too. A no-kidding $10,000 repair (aluminum pillar could not be repaired, required complete roof swap). He saw my sliding set up, bought one that week. He loves his too. I've even swapped the fifth wheel adapter to one of my other trucks. Would recommend this product to anyone.

Best choice to keep your gooseneck options and have a 5th wheel. Went together easily video helpful Got the slide options even in an 8 ft box glad we did HEAVY

Great be sure to get the fifth wheel kingpin lifter to lift the 5th wheel out so you have a truck bed We use the sliding 5th wheel when we hook up so it is closer to me as I line it up

Fantastic, quiet, no bangs or noises. Only issue is that it is so heavy, I need help removing it when I need to use the truck bed. Have used the gooseneck ball to move my buddies horse trailer, no issues either.

Looks like a well built hitch

EXCELLENT HITCH.IT IS HEAVY BUT WITH 2 PEOPLE AND EITHER A TRACTOR OR JUST A MOTOR HOIST,OR TWO STRONG GUYS COULD DO IT.MY HUSBAND AND I USED OUR TRACTOR BECAUSE IT WAS OUR SIMPLEST WAY..EASY TO SET UP..VERY HAPPY AND READY TO GO RV ING....

We offer a lift bracket, part # DM6100
Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket
$50.04
that you might be interested in. The bracket locks into the hitch like a king pin would and offers a safe lifting point that wont damage the hitch.

by:

The B and W Companion gooseneck and fifth wheel adapter works very nicely and when removed the pickup box has no additional brackets or hardware that get in the way of the load. The only reason I did not give it a full 5 stars is that it is too heavy to be removed by one person unless assisted by a lifting device. I use my portable cherry picker to lift it out of the receiver tube. Other than that small issue I am very happy with the product and would purchase it again.


Comments
I have pulled my 34 foot 5th wheel over 7000, miles in the year that I have owned the Companion hitch and have had no issues. Being new to a 5th wheel I have nothing to compare it to, but I couldn’t imagine anything out performing this setup. I still appreciate the fact that when I pull the hitch out of the box of my truck there is nothing that interferes with any load that I haul, weather it is a load of lumber or landscaping mulch. Only down side is the overall weight of the hitch when I remove it alone, I do need a mobile cherry picker. Well worth the price and would recommend it to anyone.

I have loved this hitch. The ordering process was easy and it was shipped immediately. Installation was easy and took me about 1 hour. we have used this hitch to pull our 31 foot fifth wheel trailer over the last year and have had absolutely no problems. I would recommend this hitch to anyone.

  • How to Determine if the B and W Companion Hitch Gooseneck Adapter will Interfere with Toolbox
    I spoke to my contact at B and W and she verified that from the center of where your gooseneck ball attaches to the front of the B and W Companion Slider Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Slider part # BWRVK3400 measures 15 inches. So if you were to measure from the center of your gooseneck ball forward 15 inches you would know if this would interfere with your toolbox. You should also note that if your tool box sticks up higher than the bed rails of your truck you might see interference while making...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Short Bed Truck Using a B&W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
    You can determine where the center of the gooseneck ball would need to be (or the center of the 5th wheel hitch) based on the width of the trailer. Take half the width of the trailer, in this case 98 inches, to get 49 inches. The distance from the truck cab to the center of the ball or hitch has to be at least 4 inches greater than this 49 inches to safely make 90 degree turns and to account for any dip or bumps when at that angle. So really you would need 53 inches minus any distance...

  • Can I Use a B&W Companion Slider from 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 in a 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500
    The B&W Companion sliders like the # BWRVK3400, are height adjustable between 17" tall and up to 19" tall. There are a number of B&W Companion hitches available that have been tested and confirmed a fit on the 2020 Silverado 2500, so you shouldn't have any issues switching trucks. Keep in mind that the style of your pin box and the height of truck also will effect the amount of clearance you've got and what you're going to need to set the hitch at in order to tow level.

  • B&W Companion Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Wont Slide When Attached to Trailer
    If you can slide the B&W Companion Slider # BWRVK3400 when your trailer isn't attached, that would not indicate any type of issue with the hitch being stuck. To slide the hitch when attached to your truck you need to make sure of a couple things, starting with ensuring the trailer brakes are locked and the tires are chocked. I know you said you did that but I did need to mention it in the interest of being thorough. Make sure the handle is pulled fully as well, but the other thing, and...

  • Is There a B and W Companion Slider Hitch that Fits Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch
    B and W makes a slider hitch that fits directly to the Turnoverball gooseneck hitch you have installed in your truck with the part # BWRVK3400. The center post of this hitch slides into the opening for the gooseneck ball and provides a very secure attachment. Many refer to the Companion hitches as the best around so this would be a really great solution.

  • Difficulty in Releasing King Pin
    Difficulty in opening the jaws on the B&W Companion # BWRVK3400 may be due to the jaws needing relieve, too much pressure from the trailer. Ensure the landing gear is properly adjusted that the tongue weight is removed from the truck. The Companion features a cam-action latching handle, so when you are on unlevel ground, the jaws may remain wrapped around the king pin after turning the handle. Because of its design though, there will not be any actual pressure on the jaws even though...

  • Is it Okay to Raise Front of Fifth Wheel Trailer to Gain Tonneau Cover Clearance
    The only way it's going to be advisable to raise the height of your hitch setup to put the pin box at a higher height is going to be if your fifth wheel trailer is sitting nose low currently. I know you need an inch of additional height but if your trailer is going to be sitting nose high with that additional height added we can't recommend you do that since it would cause handling issues most likely. If your Andersen is at it's highest setting though and the Companion part # BWRVK3400...

  • Troubleshooting 5th Wheel Slider Hitch That Will Not Slide
    The first thing I recommend is testing to see if the slider will work without a trailer connected. If it will work then likely the rollers are damaged and with all the weight of the trailer it refuses to move. If it still won't move we need to determine if the unlock handle is fully disengaging the lock that prevents the slider from moving forward or back. Depending on your 5th wheel hitch this may be visible as it sits in the bed or it may need to be turned over to see the parts. If...

    The dimensions were/are the same between the two Companion hitch part numbers you mentioned. Basically B and W decided raise the weight capacities of the RVK3400 and change the part number to RVK3405. We decided to keep the part number the same which means our # BWRVK3400 is actually the BWRVK3405 that B and W sells. The only difference between the hitches is the weight capacity.

    The B and W Turnoverball hitches like # BWRVK3400 have an adjustment built into them to allow for varying height truck bed. If you check out the picture I attached you'll see that the socket post is adjustable to allow it to fit your setup. This will allow the hitch to sit higher or lower relative to the bed of the truck it's installed in. From there you can adjust the feet of the hitch to line up with the grooves in the truck bed.

  • How to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2015 Ford F-350 that has a B&W Gooseneck Hitch
    I actually have a much better option for you to tow a 5th wheel trailer with your 2015 Ford F-350 but I don't recommend using the Reese Goose Box as they are designed for long bed trucks. If you were to use the Reese Goose Box on a short bed truck you are going to run into all sorts of problems such as cab and bedside clearance. Instead, since you already have a B&W Turnoverball Hitch installed I recommend using the B&W Companion Slider part # BWRVK3400 because it installs using the gooseneck...

  • Gooseneck Latch Pin Pulls Out when B&W Companion Slider is Installed
    When installing the B&W Companion slider # BWRVK3400 you will pull out the gooseneck pin all the way and rotate clockwise, remove the ball, and reinsert the gooseneck pin.

If the pin is visible inside the GN...

You will want to make sure that your trailer's landing gear is adjusted properly so that the trailer is level and the pressure/weight is relieved from the hitch and your truck.

  • How to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer Using a 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed with B&W Turnoverball

The B&W Companion is largely considered to be one of the best 5th wheel hitches on the market. The reason for this is because it has 1" thick dual locking jaws which take almost all chucking out of the equation and it's cam action release handle will allow you to uncouple the trailer on uneven ground. The slider mechanism on the B&W Companion...

  • Would Moving Companion Hitch Head Forward or Back Help with Bed Rail Clearance
    Moving the hitch back in the bed of your truck would give you better clearance between the bed rails of the truck and the overhang of the trailer.
