I purchased this to pull my 38 ft travel trailer with my 1997 dodge ram 2500 at first I thought it wasn't the right one to install but then realized I needed to modified my service truck bumper .so I did ,then installed the hitch which was fairly easy I have pulled the trailer numerous times with no problems. I want to thank the all the staff who helped me in my purchase (which is my third purchase from them).and would highly recommend this company. Thx again.

2010 Dodge Ram Pickup

I decided to try this B&W receiver hitch on my 95 Dodge Ram 2500 after discovering that another well known brand was not going to bolt right on. The B&W had enough distance between the mounting brackets to clear the downward bent lip on the Dodge frame. Installation was straightforward after removing the spare tire and oem Dodge hitch. I assembled everything loosely and set it into position before snugging up the hardware and doing the final torque. The hitch seems well made. The tab for mounting trailer wiring is a nice feature. My only little nit pick is I think some of the frame mount hardware could have been 9/16" instead of 1/2" where it goes through the 1" holes in the frame with the large backing plates. I don't plan on towing more than 10,000 lbs so it will probably be fine.


Everything has been as expected. This hitch is solid and versatile. No complaints whatsoever.


Solid construction, bolts right onto the frame with no drilling. Unfortunately B&W didn't make the smart engineering choice of having the mounting plates have square holes (and corresponding square slots at the top of the bolts), so you'll need to ensure that you have an additional 3/4" instrument to stop the bolt from spinning as you tighten the nut. Overall, the convenience of not having to drill my frame massively outweighs the poor mounting design, but I was still able to accomplish the install in a couple hours by myself.

2000 Dodge Ram Pickup

Product was a easy hook up. Instructions say to assmeble it on the ground and then bolt it up. But if you just have one person put on each of the side plates and then the center section and tighten it down . Still went quickly


This is the 5th B&W hitch I've had (3 rear mounted receivers and 2 fifth wheel hitches) and the 4th I've bought on etrailer. I'm replacing this particular hitch because I was rear-ended. It totaled the car and, for the second time, my truck is just fine. I had the tow ball with a drop hitch on (also B&W) and it took all of the impact.
B&W makes the best quality hitches that I've found. I've never once had an issue, they are made in the USA, and in my opinion worth every bit of the few extra dollars to get something that will last a lifetime.
I also find myself coming back to etrailer over and over. No one can beat their customer service. They are, hands down, the best.
If you're looking at this review then I think you're in the right place.

1999 Dodge Ram Pickup

The 16K hitch is exactly what I needed. The stock hitch was only rated at 10K. I'm hauling a 12K trailer and I didn't want to roll the dice with the stock hitch. The 16K hitch fit perfectly on my Dodge truck. All needed parts were included and was easy to install. The hardest part was removing the old hitch. Definitely soak the old bolts with PB blaster a couple of days before you remove the old hitch. Customer service was great as well as fast shipping. I'd highly recommend this hitch to anyone who is planning on hauling a heavy trailer.


This is my4th hitch I have bought from etrailer and I always like shopping here. The customer service is great. The shipping is always fast and unless I screw up the product is what I wanted. It's always a joy when I get to talk to Erica and George. If their is ever a problem with the item being back ordered. Erica will always give me a call to let me know and either wait or substitute an item in place of what I have ordered. George will email you to see if everything is ok with the order and is greatly concerned with making the customer both a happy customer and a satisfied one as well. I don't have it installed yet but I well post pics of it when I do get it installed.
I would highly recommend etrailer to any first time buyer, you'll be glad you did......

2000 Dodge Ram Pickup

Being a old cowboy with little wrenching it took about one and a half hours to take the old broke one off and get the new one on. Very happy it didn't take long or a lot of tools.

2001 Dodge Ram Pickup

The quality of products is excellent, the speed of delivery is excellent, and the customer service is excellent! All items were exactly as described and total install time for my hitch, wiring harness, and my six trailer tire downs was less than two hours. I'm impressed and extremely satisfied. Great people to deal with. I'll be back in the future when further needs arise. Thanks again.


Best hitch I’ve ever owned install was fast and easy took only 30 minutes to do super well built too

1999 Dodge Ram Pickup

I purchased this for a 1999 Dodge Ram Sport. It ended up installing easily enough but the holes on the truck frame did not match up with the hitch. We could only secure it with 2 of the 3 screws. If you have the tools, you could create a 3rd hole in the truck frame but I chose not to.

2001 Dodge Ram Pickup

This is the third hitch receiver I've purchased through etrailer. Shipping is always extremely fast, much faster than Another online retailer. Never had a problem and will be making more purchases from etrailer in the future.


No complaints at all. I was concerned with the 9" drop and pulling heavy loads but the hitch has held up perfectly with a 10k pound trailer. Buy American.


Works great looks great on the truck like the way it tucks under the bumper. Hardest part of the install was getting original one off. Great product would recommend it highly.

1995 Dodge Ram Pickup

Great heavy product, been showing it off to friends.
Telling to go to etrailer to find parts


When I recieved my order , it was in a timely fashion . The hitch itself was of the highest quality . I will be doing more business with e -trailer for sure . I was very happy with everthing .

1996 Dodge Ram Pickup

First time Ordering and very impressed. Thanks

2000 Dodge Ram Pickup

Looks like top quality. Fits nice.i also like how it tucks up high under the bumper. Only complaint I have is you have to drill 2 holes in the frame. I had assumed it was direct fit with no drilling.

1999 Dodge Ram Pickup

It's a good product with prompt delivery. I have ordered with etrailer before, I have always had proper fit and good services.


Excellent. Very easy to install. It said I would have to drill but never needed to. American made! It will definitely out live the truck. Very very fast shipping!

  • Is Any Drilling Required to Install B&W Trailer Hitch on 2002 Dodge Ram 2500
    I took a look at the instructions of the B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver # BWHDRH25132 and you are right that they make no specific mention of drilling, just a general note that "modification may be required." What I learned is that on your 2002 Dodge Ram 2500, the forward-most hole on some short bed models do not have have the forward-most hole there, so it would require drilling. Due to this, the instructions did not include a specific note about drilling, but based on what I found,...

  • Will the B and W hitch part # BWHDRH25132 be Tall Enough to Install on 1998 Dodge Ram
    The B and W hitch part # BWHDRH25132 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 1998 Dodge Ram. I confirmed this with B and W. It looks like the hitch will sit up higher than your factory hitch since the vertical mounting brackets are shorter. We had customers come back with the same truck as your say that it fit well. The main difference with this hitch vs. the ones that appear to hang lower is that the vertical height difference appears different because the hitch tube...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2000 Spartan Newmar
    I can get the hole dimensions for you of the B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit part # BWHDRH25132 but it is not meant to fit a 2000 spartan MM newmar RV chassis so it will most likely be too narrow since it is designed to fit pick up trucks. I recommend to use a weld on adjustable hitch like Class V Universal Weld-on Receiver Hitch part # 15903. It can be installed on frames from 18" to 61" to fit various trailer frames. It also has a 15000 lb gross towing weight capacity....

  • Aftermarket Hitches Compatible with TorkLift Rear Camper Tie Down TLR3500
    If your 1999 Dodge Ram 3500 is an 8-foot bed without a board or step underneath truck bed and with a non-Torklift aftermarket hitch, then you will use TorkLift rear camper tie-down kit # TLR3500 that you referenced. All aftermarket trailer hitch fits for the long bed with standard/step bumper are shown on the linked page. Among these are Class III hitch # 75101 from Draw-Tite, Class IV hitch # 14001 from Curt, and Class V hitch # BWHDRH25132.

  • Will the B and W Hitch part # BWHDRH25132 Fit a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 6 foot Bed
    Yes, the B and W Heavy Duty trailer hitch part # BWHDRH25132 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 6 foot bed that has either a standard or step bumper. For a heavy duty hitch with as much capacity as this hitch has you really aren't going to find a better deal. For a ball mount you would want the part # BWBMHD30010 and then for a 2-5/16 inch ball part # BWHB94004.

    If the tongue weight (TW) is 910 lbs. and gross vehicle weight 9,700 lbs. you are definitely on the upper edge of its rating. Being a 20 year old hitch I suggest you thoroughly check the weld integrity at minimum. But replacing the hitch is the safest call and provides you the opportunity to install a hitch with a higher rating. I suggest the Class V, B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver, # BWHDRH25132. This 2" x2" hitch fits trucks with either an 8 foot or 6-1/2 foot bed with standard...
