B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V - 2" - BWHDRH25189

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (31 Customer Reviews)

This sturdy steel hitch from B&W is designed to fit your heavy-duty towing needs. Safety chain loops are built in and an electrical bracket is included for mounting your 7-way trailer connector (sold separately). Powder coat finish resists rust.


The customer service was excellent to talk to. I received the hitch actually a couple of days before the delivery date. As for doing the job of installing the hitch removing the old one was the hardest part. The B W hitch was a great fit for my truck. Only thing that I would change would be if they would include the 4 screws and nuts for the light plug. Overall I am very pleased. I feel alot better having the old rusted hitch off. Thanks for a great product. I have several different trailers I pull. From a small utility to a 24 feet enclosed race trailer.


I pull a travel trailer that weighs 7700lbs empty and so far it has worked fine.



2008 GMC Sierra

Quick on getting the product to ya


Fit my truck just right and all the new blots was a plus. Very fast delivery.

Chevrolet Silverado

I purchased the B&W Class V hitch from Service was excellent.
I have installed B&W products on my vehicles in the past and have been very happy with the quality and ease of installation.
While this hitch is well constructed and easy to install, I did have one issue which I intend to bring to the attention of B&W.
The instructions call for torquing the 1/2" bolts to 80 ft. lbs. On my Chevy Silverado, the larger backing plates which rest on top of the frame started to bend well before I was close to 80 ft. lbs. I ended up using additional steel plates under the ones provided in order to tighten everything to specifications. Other than that I have no complaints.

2010 Suzuki Swift

Just installed this receiver and it looks great. Installation in about half an hour with no modifications (drilling) required. It actually took longer to remove the existing hitch than it did to install the new one. I love that I have a cat 5 hitch with a 2" receiver. Daily I tow a 10,000 lb trailer and I feel much more secure about this hitch than the one that came on my 3/4 ton.

I appreciate that it comes with a tab for the RV plug. The paint finish appears to be very strong and durable. The 3-piece design should also make this hitch stronger than the welded hitches. Only complaint is the tabs for the safety chains may be encumbered by the use of a locking hitch pin.

Ordering was easy and delivery was swift.

2007 GMC Sierra Classic

Very nice product..easy to replacement for the factory hitch.
My only complaint is that the electrical plug mount is weak. Compared to the HD aspect of the hitch they could have made it a little beefier.

2002 Chevrolet Silverado

The hitch itself is heavy duty, very happy with it and would highly recommend it. The mounting hardware is of poor quality. Spacer plates are very soft steel. There needs to be a spacer to go inside the large holes of the truck frame, nearest the front of the vehicle - the spacer plates collapsed way before hitting the 80 lbs required torque. To top it off, one of the bolts stripped out before meeting the torque requirements. Installation took way longer than it should have. Having said that, with a couple of minor upgrades this would be an awesome package!

2003 Chevrolet Silverado

Fit right on my truck. Took only a few minutes to bolt on! Came earlier than expected. Great communication from the company from start to finish.


Order my hitch it came in a few days took me a week to get time to install it only to find out I ordered the wrong one, called etrailer right away they shipped the right one same day, fits perfect no holes to drill, return of old one was easy,(keep the original box till you know it fits) return credit is a little slow in my opinion, product is good quality, would recommend to a friend.


Looks like a solid piece, it was very easy to install with pretty basic hand tools, ready to put my truck to work with a hitch that will safely hold what truck is rated to tow.

2006 GMC Sierra

Easy installation


Very helpful and Great customer service

2005 Chevrolet Silverado

Purchased a Class five hitch for my one ton Chevy. Fit perfect and installed in about 35 minutes!!

After a year and many heavy pulls trailer hitch is GREAT. No complaints
Terryo - 10/11/2018


Fit perfect. Install was super easy. Rodney, the sales guy was very helpful.


Easy install. Only took about an hour to remove old hitch and install new one complete. May have to slightly shorten the insert, due to closed end. No big deal.


Very happy with my hitch! It fit perfectly and was an easy installation!


Great hitch better then ariganal strong easy installation

  • Is B and W Trailer Hitch HDRH25189 for a 2002 GMC Sierra Rated for Weight Distribution
    The B and W trailer hitch # BWHDRH25189 for the 2002 GMC Sierra is indeed rated for use with weight distribution. We are in the process of updating the information but if you look in the specs section of the product page you will see that you can use weight distribution. I have also included a link to the installation instructions for you. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight...

  • Drop Depth of B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver BWHDRH25189
    In regards to the B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver part # BWHDRH25189, the distance from the flange to the top of the receiver tube is 3-1/8" and the distance from the rearmost mounting hole to the end of the receiver tube is 26-3/4". The collar is usually about 1/4" thick.

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2006 Chevy Silverado 3500HD with 44 inch Frame Width
    The B and W hitch part # BWHDRH25122 that you referenced only fits the cab and chassis versions of your truck which have a narrower frame width than what you mentioned at 34 inches from outside to outside. So what you'd want is the part # BWHDRH25189 instead which is designed for the truck frame dimensions you have on your 2006 Chevy Silverado 3500HD.

  • Class V 2-Inch Hitch Fits for 2003 GMC Sierra 3500 4x4 Dually
    B&W 2-inch Class V hitch # BWHDRH25182 is a fit for Chevrolet and GMC 2500 Series pickups, but for your 3500 Series we offer a 2-inch Class V B&W hitch # BWHDRH25187 that fits trucks with a 10-inch step bumper, and also hitch # BWHDRH25189 that fits trucks with a standard factory bumper. All class V hitches for your truck are shown on the linked page.

  • What is the factory Cutout Bumper when Choosing a Trailer Hitch for a 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500
    I did some checking and basically the cutout bumper is the regular factory bumper. The Curt hitch, # C15312, will fit up tighter and a little more recessed, apparently the same way the factory hitch does if it were installed. Some people like the hitch a little more tucked up and others don't. If you want a little more room around the receiver then I recommend going with B&W hitch # BWHDRH25189.

  • Class V Trailer Hitch Receiver With 2" Receiver for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD With 6' Bed
    I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15302 for your 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD with the 6' bed since the B&W # BWHDRH25189 will only fit the 8' long bed. The Curt receiver is rated for a tongue weight of 2,400lbs with a maximum trailer weight of 16,000lbs. The maximum trailer weight will increase to 17,000lbs when used with a weight distribution hitch.

  • B&W Trailer Hitch Options for a 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic 2500 with 8 Foot Bed
    We don't have a picture but I can tell you that once installed trailer hitch # BWHDRH25187 will have its receiver directly below the bumper and the face of the receiver will be basically flush with the rear bumper. Please note that this hitch is designed to fit a 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic 2500 with an 8 foot bed AND 10 inch step bumper. If the truck has the regular step bumper you would use # BWHDRH25189. It will also be right under the rear bumper and the receiver will be about flush...

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch that Could Fit 1997 GMC Cutaway Box Truck
    I spoke to my contacts at Curt and Reese and the only styles of hitches that can be made to fit a box-truck body like yours are multi-fit RV hitches like the # 41990 that has a 16k capacity. This is a weld on hitch that would require either the 7 inch drop brackets part # 4907 or the 16 inch brackets part # 4916.

  • Recommended Class V Hitch for 2006 GMC Sierra for Towing 10,800 lb Boat
    I'd recommend upgrading that hitch, ASAP. If the hitch fails while you're towing, causing an accident, your insurance company would be well within their rights to deny you coverage which would leave you wide open to all kinds of legal liability. Not a pretty situation. Usually, Class V hitches do indeed have a 2-1/2 inch receiver tube. However, companies like Curt Manufacturing, Draw-Tite and B&W have developed Class V hitches with a 2 inch receiver tube that are strong enough to be classified...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Compatible with 2010 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Service Body
    The B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V - 2" # BWHDRH25187 is the best option for your 2010 Chevy Silverado 2500 chassis with 10 inch step bumper. The only thing to consider is the depth of your bumper is greater than the typical step bumper. I've attached a photo to assist. This will put your trailer hitch receiver under your bumper, so I recommend an extended length ball mount like # 80232 or # BH20. Then you can use a 2 inch ball like # A-90 or 2-5/16 inch...
