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".


Installation of the B&W Companion

To install the Companion, first bolt the included RV post to the Companion's base. This post is what inserts into your Turnoverball gooseneck hitch. The RV post attaches to the base in 1 of 2 ways to allow for improved cab clearance and proper positioning over your truck's axle.


Once you have the post in place on the base, position the 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 RV 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, torque down the integrated drop-down bolt. This bolt runs through the crossmember of the Companion base and then down through the RV 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 wide stance of the hitch's base, helps to ensure maximum stability when you're towing.


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 the cab clearance needed to execute turns while towing.


Note: If you have a short bed truck, you may want to use the B&W Companion Slider hitch (BWRVK3400 - sold separately) instead of the standard Companion. This fifth-wheel trailer hitch, which also adapts your Turnoverball gooseneck hitch, incorporates a slider that gives you an extra 12" of fore/aft movement to ensure proper cab clearance when executing turns.


Companion 3500 Base Diagram

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 above diagram gives an indication of where to mount the arms so that you get the height and the cab clearance that you need.


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 BWRVK3500 Review

Today we're going to review part number BWRVK3500. This is the B and W Companion goose neck to fifth wheel trailer hitch adapter. It is the dual jaw design. It has a 20,000pound gross towing weight capacity. This trailer hitch adapter will convert your B and W turnover ball goose neck hitch, that we do sell separately on our website, to a fifth wheel hitch, which will let you tow your fifth wheel trailer. It is a rail free design, which means this will drop right into your truck bed.

There's a post that is connected to the hitch base right down here. That is a square post which will drop into the square opening on turnover ball goose neck hitch on your truck and then you'll lock it into place like you would your goose neck ball and then you'll have a fifth wheel hitch in your trailer.Now it also has these plastic footpads, which will attach to the bottom of each base here, and as you can see it is formed to fill the truck bed corrugation to help create a better fit. Now it does have the one inch thick dual jaws here. These will provide a 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact, which will give you less rattle and more security than the slide bar jaws. So basically, right back here, I'm just going to turn it around a little bit, so you might be able to see.Right back here there's a clip and a pin, that if we pull the clip off the end of the pin that will release the handle. When you push back on this handle you'll be able to see, there it is closed, and when you push back on it, those dual jaws will open up and you're ready to back up into your fifth wheel trailer.As your kingpin comes in here, it will push on the back here and will automatically push the handle closed and wrap around the kingpin.

With it closed you can just take the pin and clip, drop it into place and that will lock it into place. Now you can also use a padlock on here, if you like. We do sell those separately. If you need extra security you can drop a padlock in there or just use this pin and clip. Now this does use a cam action latching handle that will help prevent binding.

It is simple to release even on unleveled terrain. Basically what it does is this handle will allow you to quickly and easily release the jaws on the hitch, even if you are on uneven terrain.Now sometimes when you're on uneven terrain there might be some binding that will occur in there and when you open this handle, to the open position, those jaws might still be wrapped around the kingpin, but because it is a cam action latching handle what will happen is there is no pressure because this handle is unlatched there will be no pressure on those jaws, so when you go to pull away that king pin will push open those jaws and slide out. That way even if you're on uneven terrain it won't give you any binding. A very nice feature. Now it does have a fully articulating head, which will ease hook-up and help limit chucking.

So, basically right here you can see the articulating head will pivot front to back and it will also go side to side.This head part will go side to side. It is hard to move right now because there's no weight on it. Basically it's setting, this hitch head is sitting on these pivot arms and there are polyurethane bushings right under here, so that's what will give you the movement. Now you can also get improved cab clearance with the four inches of front to back adjustment and you'll get those adjustment by these pivot arms here on the side. Basically these pivot arms, if you can see, they're sort of triangular shape, so itdepends on how youmount them to the side plates here. Now on these side plates there's holes drilled and there's about five rows of five holes, so about twenty-five different holes.So if you have the holes on your pivot arms, you'll just line that up, so you can move it front to back with about four inches of movement. And you can also turn those sort of triangular shape, turn themaround to even gain more adjustment if you need, and then also you depending on how high you bolt those holes, you can also gain three height settings to fit your application also. Basically, the hitch height adjustments go from the lowest, about16 1/4and the highest about 18 1/4. That is measured from your truck bed to the hitch head, so you can adjust that height by how you install it on here.Now a nice feature is if you go on the product page for this part number,we do have a nice diagram there that will show when this is mounted in each different position, what the dimensions you will be gaining in height and in the fore and aft movement. You will get the quiet rattle free ride because this it's riding on those polyurethane bushings. Has a nice wide stance base, as you can see, which offers the strength and stability. Again these plastic footpads will mount to the bottom to create a better fit in your truck bed. It is a very quick and simple installation.Basically this RV post, right down here, this square post, will install in the ball hole of your turn over ball goose neck hitch, and then you'll turn the handle to lock it into place and you'll be ready to go. It does have a gray powder coat steel finish, which is corrosion resistant. It is made in the U.S.A., and again this has a gross towing weight capacity of 20,000 pounds, vertically load limit of 5,000 pounds. And again we mentioned the hitch height adjustments, anywhere from16 1/4to 18 1/4, and it comes with a limited 5 year warranty.Now just one other thing I want to show you, when you go if you want to remove this after your done using it and you want to remove it from the bed of your truck. You don't have to remove all the weight at one time. What you can do is if you pull this clip right out and then pull the pin out, pull the clip over here, pull this pin out, then what that will do is you'll be able to take just the head off the bushings. Basically if you just pullup on these handles, these handles will release underneath the bushings and you'll be able to lift this whole head off, and you'll save you some of the weight.All you'll have left is the pivot arms and the base. So it will save you some of the weight when you are remove it from your truck bed. One other thing to also look at, when you do take this hitch head off, the very bottom, if you turn this over, at the very bottom at the center, there is a grease zerk fitting and you do want to lube that with grease every once in awhile because that will lube this large nut and bolt here that gives you the side to side adjustments on the head.That should do it for the review on part number BWRVK3500. The B and W Companion goose neck to fifth wheel trailer hitch adapter with a 20,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. .

I tow a 16000 lb fifth wheel and this adapter works perfectly. It's easy to hook up and I had a RV place in Arizona install it and they did so for less than $100. The tow rating on this is about 20 thousand pounds I believe so I'm well within the limits Towing this trailer. I would highly recommend this product for anyone who is towing a fifth-wheel within the rated tow range. 425732

I ordered the B&W companion gooseneck-to-5th wheel on a tuesday I think. She said depending on where it is shipped from it should get to me Monday. I neede it yesterday! 3 days later on Friday the UPS man was in front of my house struggling and cursing lol. I went to help him and to my surprise, it was my gooseneck/5th wheel! She came thru like a trooper. The product is great and I followed the Etrailer instructional video to install. I hardly looked at the instructions. Etrailer is officially my go spot for anything trailer related period! The videos are A-1 and so easy in simple english. Saved me $100s. Etrailer is 100%. Thank you Etrailer!! 348085

Works very well, easy to assemble with instructions. No rails to install or left in bed when not in use, easy to remove with two people, can be removed with one person if able to lift it; it easily separates in two pieces with pull of couple pins. Only complaint is, sometimes it's hard to tell if it's released (pin and Plate separation gap) when docking trailer but no big deal, other than that; it's a solid product. I pull around 15K with no issues. I would definitely purchase another one and I have recommended to a friend, who also purchased one and seems pleased with his. 343633

"Companion" is the perfect name for this 5th wheel hitch. I already have the B&W gooseneck hitch in my truck and needed a 5th wheel hitch to tow my new 42' toy hauler. I love the fact that it uses the gooseneck for attachment. I didn't want to mount rails in the bed of my truck or have a permanently attached 5th wheel hitch. It is very easy to install and remove. I have only towed my toy hauler one time so far and had no issues whatsoever. It is very easy to operate. I highly recommend this product. Thanks B&W for an excellent product. 316363

First dealing with Erika W was great, good product knowledge and told me my product would be at my front door in 3 days - it was. I received the hitch and it took me about an hour to open up, assemble and install. Very straight forward and easy to work with solo. I have yet to connect to my 5th wheel but so far so good. Thanks Erika. 323552

So far so good. The installation was really easy. I got lucky by already having the BW Gooseneck hitch in my truck when I purchased it. Knowing what I know now this feel like the best route to go. I can pull it out of my truck and have my entire bed for something else in 30 minutes. Most of my time was assembling the components, which wasn't that long 3 hours maybe. It breaks into 2 pieces so I can lift it all by myself with no problem. I have not pulled my 5th wheel yet, that will be this weekend. I will update afterward. 297041

I pull a 14' goose neck dump trailer and a 10,500 lb fifth wheel camper with a 2008 GMC Sierra 1500. Both are obviously all the truck should handle anyways but I would never try it with a different hitch. There's no play, none, in either even after nine years with the gooseneck receiver and one year with the fifth wheel companion. I travel for work and have pulled the camper 6.5 hours. 10,500 lbs on a bw hitch in your bed is more safe than 5000lb on s tail receiver no doubt. Worth every penny. 434191

Great Product. No issue with install or removal when not needed. use of over head mechanical lifting devise is recommended, if not breaking it down. Always remember to install safety latch pin in receiver handle prior to moving any load. great delivery time of product from manufacture. 382879

Arrived in about 4 days. I ordered it on a Friday evening so that was pretty quick for free shipping. Installed it in about two hrs.took our first trip with the new 5th wheel hitch and it is awesome. It doesn't make any clunky noise when starting and stopping. Well worth every penny. 396175

This product stood up exactly as promised. Easy to install, take your time get your measurement first it will be easier on you in the long run. Instructions where easy to understand but if you get confused you can find video's online if that is easier. Also at the angle I was at, it released very easy and no binding. Very easy to install and operate. The big plus is when your done with hauling, its easy to take out and have the back of your truck bed back to normal. 191199

I ordered the hitch on Wednesday afternoon, after I had purchased my fifth wheel, and it was delivered Friday. No shipping charges. Usually when you order online with no shipping cost it takes a week or longer to receive. I saved about $400 buying from Etrailer, and it was much easier than buying from the dealer. Rose was very helpful in my purchase, and a pleasure to do business. I will definitely use Etrailer in the future for all my trailer requirements. 288781

The B&W engineers clearly take tremendous pride in their work and it shows in their finished product when it comes to detail and quality. Perfect form, fit and function. The unit is rock solid and basically marries the 5th wheel to the truck. There is literally no play and slop whatsoever. Makes towing very pleasant. If you want the absolute best in the industry, you just found it. 340435

Hitch is awesome but I wasn't impressed that the head and the stand didn't ship together they came separate so that was frustrating and I'm assuming ups is the one that ruined the box and scratched up my brand new hitch. They would probably be better going with a pallet or something. Other thanthat good quality product good sales staff best price on new hitches on the Internet and locally here and the best part these hitches are made in the USA! 279817

All in all everything went together pretty well and I did the install single handed. Couple whacks with a mallet and a few choice %$#@ and a ^%$@!, and it went together exactly as described. Another pair of hands would certainly have helped with the center section but only a bit. Missing one flat and one lock washer- 2 washers away from 5 stars. Can't really complain too much about that so I'm a satisfied customer! Thank you etrailer 302416

This fifth wheel companion is awesome, very stable and secure, easy to install and remove so we have full use of the truck bed. Wonderful to have the option to use gooseneck or fifth wheel in one vehicle. We pull a 44' toy hauler with a 17' garage in the back with 2 trikes and a harley, handles great.

I couldn't be happier with this hitch. I love the fact that I don't have to have a permanent hitch in my box. It is easy to put this in and out with one person and it takes about 2-3 minutes to do.

  • Easily Removable Fifth Wheel Hitch that Leaves Truck Bed Unobstructed
  • The Companion hitch part # BWRVK3500 is an easily removable hitch that will give you great access to the truck bed when not installed. You will need to have a B and W Turnover gooseneck hitch installed in your truck bed to use this hitch. Most fifth wheel hitches will require the installation of rails in the bed of the truck that will obstruct the bed slightly when a hitch isn't there, but the Companion will give you a totally empty truck bed.

  • How to Remove a B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch from a Truck Bed
  • To uninstall the Companion hitch head, your will first remove the Saddle lock pins. Then grab the saddle handles and lift to remove the head from the pivot arms.

To remove the actual Companion base, loosen the draw down bolt and retract the Turnoverball gooseneck latch pin handle all the way out. Carefully lift and position the Companion base out of the Gooseneck hitch socket. I have linked the instructions...

  • Concerns About Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Dodge Ram 3500 Equipped with a Goose Neck Hitch
  • There are several ways to adapt a 5th wheel trailer to enable it to be towed with a truck that has a goose neck hitch installed. The best choice for you will depend on how often you need to change between trailer types. Some of the adapters that allow this flexibility will put more stress on the trailer frame than other types. Options are still somewhat limited for newer vehicles like your 2014 Ram. The best method is to replace the pin box on your 5th wheel with a compatible goose box...

  • The video I've linked for you shows the # BWRVK3500 B&W Companion being installed. To remove the hitch, simply reverse the process. Pull the release handle in the driver's side wheel well, then climb in the truck bed. Remove the two pins that hold the fifth wheel head in place, and lift the head off the hitch. Then, you can lift straight up on the base to remove it. After the hitch is removed, I'd recommend installing the gooseneck ball upside down, it'll help keep dirt, debris and...

  • B and W Turnover Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2016 GMC Sierra 3500
  • For a B and W Turnover Gooseneck hitch confirmed to fit your 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 you would want the part # BWGNRK1016. The part # BWGNRK1012 that you referenced is for the previous years of the Sierra so it would not fit your truck. If you ever needed to tow a fifth wheel trailer you could just go with the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3500 as this will fit right into the hitch.
