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.

I decided to buy the Champion fifth wheel hitch to pull a fifth wheel camper, my 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 already had a B&W goose neck hitch in it. The champion hitch allowed me to also have a fifth wheel hitch with out drilling and mounting more weight to the truck. The instructions for assembly were clear and easy to follow making the assembly of the hitch easy. The hitch fit snug and there is no play in it. The 26' fifth wheel camper pulled nicely, no surging or swaying.


Comments
Very good I have towed a fifth wheel camper, it tows very nicely, there is no play in the hitch in the goose neck adapter, and no slop in the fifth wheel at the trailer

Make sure to have two people for installation. The only reason this is a must is due to the weight of the items and safety. The installation was not bad, the only item that is worth mentioning to watch for is near the end of the installation instructions. The jaws release lever has two bolts to hold it onto the receiver plate itself. The top is a rounded head with allen wrench style fittings. Unfortunately even though it seems like the allen wrench would hold the minute you put any torque on the nut it spins. I ended up replacing both immediately before fully tightening to ensure the handle was solid in place. As both bolts have no load or weight to them this was an easy decision to make. Everything you can tell is built solid and is pure steel, this thing should not go anywhere! Also to note I have my height adjustment for the plate at the highest setting and my tonneau cover still fully covers the truck bed without touching!


Comments
It has been great, no issues and still pulling my fifth wheel without any incident. I did have to adjust the plate down all the way but that was to even out the trailer angle to raise backend of camper more so as not to hit back end on anything. Easy enough if you have a torque power drill to take all the bolts off and move, then just make sure to use torque wrench again to the 80lbs required.

Rock solid for sure. But it's quite heavy! Very hard to manage and lift with just one person. Does it need to be this heavy? I have a lot of confidence in it's strength (10,000 lb 5th wheel) but just wish it was more convenient, as I have to move it in and out of the truck frequently.

Very impressed with the B&W companion 5th wheel trailer hitch adapter purchased from etrailer.com. The hitch was received in a timely matter. This was installed in a 2016 Dodge Ram Laramie 3500 dually long bed truck and watched an installation video which complimented the included instructions. The B&W companion was a good choice as the hitch can be removed and lifted out in two pieces in order to use the truck bed for other uses. Highly recommend this style over other 5th wheel traditional hitches.

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.


Comments
its been an excellent hitch. I pulled the trailer about eight to ten Thousand Miles without a problem with a hitch. Im thinking about getting a larger fifth wheel so I imagine Ill have to have a hitch that will pull a 24,000 pound trailer right? No doubt you have them no I havent checked your site. Its a little early yet. Thank you for your follow-up I appreciate it.

This is the best gooseneck to fifth-wheel Hitch! It certainly gives me the opportunity to use my vehicle for multiple purposes / multiple trailer types without major changes to the truck frame or trailer hitches. The only issue is the weight, but that is obviously a result of the quality. The hitch is designed with the user in mind with convenience in the coupling and uncoupling of the trailer. I have a fifth wheel hitch that bolts to the frame and it makes that truck dedicated to one task without mechanical removal of the hitch, the B&W hitch adapter gives so much more flexibility along with ease of use. My bolt in 5th wheel hitch is now relegated to the for sell listings.

What a great product. The installation was easy and the security you can feel when it hooks up to your fifth wheel is great with just a glance you can see that it is safely locked in place.


Comments
The hitch is fabulous, when it is hooked up it performs super, the security and solid hook up feels great. Upon our return from overseas we lived in our fifth wheel for a year and did a lot of towing. I did have to put a pulley in my garage to assist in removing and loading the hutch as its 220 lb weigh made it impossible for me to do by myself. With the pulley it’s a simple job.

Bought truck used with the BW turnover ball installed. Purchased Companion hitch the set-up and instructions are really easy to follow. It took me an absolute novice, less than an hour to put the whole thing together. The frame portion is heavy at 130 pounds so definitely a two person job to move it around but once it was put together I just dropped it in the hole and shut the latch pin and then tightened the draw bolt and it was good to go! When attaching the handle i noticed the flange nuts were crimped just enough that the bolt would not thread through, so I had to purchase two 3/8" flange nuts at the local hardware store to replace but 10 minutes and $1.20 to replace was no big deal. I did contact the manufacturer with the package lot number so they could check their inventory. They were very helpful and apologetic. They even offered to send out replacement nuts right away. Definitely a solid product and I am so glad I purchased this.

I appreciated advice when ordering and decided on the B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailed Hitch Adapter. Delivery was super fast. I ordered after 5:00 pm on Thursday and the package was in front of the garage by noon on Friday. My wife said that was faster than Amazon! Instructions were detailed well, so after purchasing a torque wrench, I was good to go. I watched a video also, as being from Missouri, I have to be showed! The quality seems to be great. By Saturday noon, I was able to hook up to our 5th wheel RV. Thanks so much!

I have owned this hitch for a year. It has performed flawlessly. A lot of people elect to change out their pin box to a goose box because they don't want anything in their bed when not towing. When this one is removed there is nothing in the bed. Yes, it is heavy, but when I have to pull it out I use the 5th wheel to lift it out. Not a problem for me.

  • Reese M5 Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2020 Ford F-350 with OEM Rail Kit
    Since you said to assume the loaded weight of the trailer will be 20k the Reese M5 hitch you'll want is the 27k model part # RP30922 which you'll be really happy with. The price difference between it and the 20k model # RP30921 is almost non-existent so going with the higher rated option really has no downside.

    No. Since the Companion hitch has a square tube that mounts into a gooseneck connection you will only be able to mount a B&W Companion hitch like the # BWRVK3500 in the gooseneck ball mount of the B&W Turnoverball like # BWGNRK1012.

  • Solution for Towing 5th Wheel Trailer with Curt Double Lock Gooseneck Hitch
    I do have a solution for a more secure setup to tow a fifth-wheel trailer, however the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500 that you referenced is not compatible with your Curt Double Lock Gooseneck Hitch. The Companion is designed specifically for the square ball hole that the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitches provide and cannot be adapted to fit your Curt system. I instead recommend using the Curt X5 Base Rails Adapter # C16210. This is designed to fit your Curt Double Lock Gooseneck Hitch...

  • Can B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Be Used with Reese Sidewinder
    The B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter part # BWRVK3500 is not compatible with rotating pin boxes even if you lock out the turret. The reason for this has to do with the the excess torque on the single connection point and its inability to withstand this. Therefore, your best option would be to remove the rotating pin box and replace it with a standard pin box. For this, we have the Lippert 1621 5th Wheel Pin Box part # LC1191191 which is rated for 15,500 lbs and...

  • How Tall is the B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter RVK3500
    The B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter part # BWRVK3500 that you referenced has a vertical adjustment from 16-1/4" - 18-1/4". Please also keep in mind that the base will require a 36" long x 30-1/2" wide opening. If the opening on your flatbed is not this large then you would need to look at the B&W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter part # BWRVK3050 which will only requires a 18" long x 18" wide opening. This unit however is only...

  • Determining if 5th Wheel Trailer is Level When Hooked Up to Truck
    Looking at the picture you attached it seems like everything is pretty level on your setup. Just going by the picture I don't think you need to adjust the hitch at all. With that being said pictures can be deceiving, so to be extra sure you can also take a measurement from the ground to the bottom of the trailer at both the back and at the front to see if you get equal numbers when hooked up to the truck. Another thing you might want to look closer at is the rear of your truck. It looks...

  • Difference Between B&W Companion # BWRVK3500 and # BWRVK3300
    The primary difference between the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500 and the BWRVK3300 referenced in your question is how they will actually mount to the truck bed. The B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3500 is a fantastic hitch that will mount to your truck bed using a vehicle specific B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch. For example, if your 2011 Chevy Silverado has an 8 foot bed, you will just need the Gooseneck Installation Rails # BWGNRK1007-5W. The great thing about this system...

  • Is it Possible to Use B and W Companion Hitch with Reese Revolution/Sidewinder Pin Box
    You'll have to lock out the Reese Revolution pin box to be able to use it with a B and W Companion hitch that attaches via the B and W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch. But once you do that you'd be fine. If the trailer has a tapered nose on it designed for short beds then you could then use the stationary Companion part # BWRVK3500. To lock out the Revolution you will first need to make sure the wedge at the bottom of the Sidewinder is removed so it can pivot at the hitch. Then you will...

  • How to Pick Hitch Height Setting for B and W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch
    You will want the hitch to be set at the height that 1) allows the trailer to be level, and 2) allows you a minimum of 6 inches between the bottom of the trailer loft and the top of the bed rails. The fifth wheel hitches offer several inches of up and down adjustment to help accomplish this. Many pin boxes are also height adjustable. To do this you will want to measure from the top of your truck bed floor to the ground and then measure from the plate of the pin box on the trailer down...

  • Comparing B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitches RVK3000 and RVK3500
    The B&W Companion RVK3000 was an early model that has a max weight rating of 18,000 lbs, adjustable height ranging from 14-3/4" - 16-3/4", and used U-Bolts for the installation. The B&W Companion # BWRVK3500 was upgraded so that the weight rating is now 20,000 lbs, has a higher adjustable height range of 16-1/4" - 18-1/4" (which is more common), and has a single point for mounting which makes it easier to use. It wasn't that the older systems were bad, B&W just saw where they could...

  • How to Determine if There will Be Room For B&W Companion Hitch in Bed of 2016 Ford F250 w Toolbox
    From the center of the shank to each end of the base of the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3500 is 18 inches. That means you would need to measure 18 inches from the center of where the gooseneck ball would be of the Turnoverball hitch part # BWGNRK1111 installed in your truck bed. If that dimension does not interfere with your toolbox the hitch will fit with it. The center of the gooseneck ball hole will be 46-1/8 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed. If you don't...

  • Can the B&W Companion Be Used with a Round Gooseneck Hole Opening
    If the opening for the gooseneck hitch ball on your 2009 GMC Sierra 2500 is round and not square then you do not have the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch like part # BWGNRK1067. Therefore, you would not be able to use a B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter like part # BWRVK3500 or part # BWRVK3400 unless you removed the gooseneck hitch you have now and installed the above gooseneck hitch. If you can send me a photo of the gooseneck hitch you have...

  • Can the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500 be Converted for Use on 2017 Silverado 3500 with Puck Package
    We do have the Slider Base # BWRVB3770 if your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 is a 6-1/2 foot bed or the Base # BWRVB3700 if you have an 8 foot bed. These are compatible with the factory prep package in your Silverado and will allow you to use the Companion hitch head from the B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3500 that you already have. Instead of just replacing the base I recommend selling your entire Companion and using that money to offset the price...

  • Can Hitch Head of B and W Companion Hitch be Adjusted Back without Issue
    May as well use the rear most holes of the hitch head to gain all the clearance you can. The weight of the hitch will still come down on the same place in the truck bed which is where the hitch attaches to the truck frame and is right above the axle. Hopefully the additional clearance helps. Raising the nose of your trailer would only be a good solution if doing so your trailer was still sitting level as you are towing. If you raise the nose so that the trailer is not sitting nose high...

  • Pivot Arm Settings for B and W Companion Fifth Hitches
    Having the head of a B and W Companion like the # BWRVK3500 positioned with the pivot arms in the middle most horizontal and vertical setting would give you the most neutral position that should work the best for most trailers under most circumstances. But even that will depend on the truck and trailer setup. I attached a chart that has all of the pivot arm positions.
