Expert Answers about Fifth Wheel Hitch


  • Can the Non-Slider B&W Companion Hitch Be Used on a 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed
  • For a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, I recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch part # BWRVK3710 or part # BWRVK3775 over the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C84FR. The reason for this is because the cam-action handle on the B&W Companion makes a world of difference when it comes to uncoupling the trailer on un-level ground. In order to determine if a sliding fifth wheel hitch is needed, you will have to do some measuring as clearances change for each truck/trailer. In...

  • Do I Need a 5th Wheel Slider In My 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 w/ OEM Prep Package and Short Bed
  • We still recommend the use of a slider in all standard/short bed trucks. That being said, the new GM trucks like your 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 do have a slightly longer bed than the typical standard bed. The best thing you can do is to measure to see if you have the proper clearance needed without a slider. You can do this by taking A = Distance from center of fifth wheel hitch jaw to truck cab and subtracting C = Width of trailer divided by 2 (to get half). So A - C= your clearance. You need...

  • Can Stationary 5th Wheel Hitch be Used for a 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 with 6-3/4 Bed
  • We tend to stick with the safe side of things and just recommend using a sliding 5th wheel hitch if you don't have an 8' bed, but we have heard and seen people 5th wheel tow just fine using a non-sliding hitch on a 6-3/4' bed. We've actually had someone install the standard B&W Companion (available in 20K # BWRVK3710 or 25K # BWRVK3715) on their 2020 Silverado 3500 with the 6-3/4' bed and he said that he was super close to getting his trailer at a 90 degree angle. With that being said,...

  • Best Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty With Ford Factory Prep Package
  • You mentioned wanting a light slider, though I do have to say that all 5th wheel hitches are going to have some heft to them. That said, there are ways to make it more manageable to remove them from the bed, which you can do by removing the head unit first and then the base, though it will still take two people to remove. Having said that, I will give you a couple options, starting with what is absolutely the best sliding 5th wheel hitch for your 2019 Ford F-250 with the factory Ford...

  • Comparing Reese M5, Curt A25 and B and W Companion Hitch for 2019 Ram 3500 with OEM Rail Kit
  • The two best options from what you mentioned are the Reese M5 part # RP30918 and the Companion # BWRVK3600. If you wanted to go with a Curt the A25 part # C16046 would be the better option as this essentially is the updated version of the Q series with a much better jaw design for a smoother ride quality. Now that said I have a friend of mine who went with the M5 after having used the Companion hitch for years and he said that overall the ride quality was smoother and the hitch was...

  • Comparison Between Curt PowerRide and B&W Companion 5th Wheel for 2022 GMC 3500 Long Bed Truck
  • The highest capacity B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch available for your 2022 GMC Sierra 3500 long bed would be part # BWRVK3715 which has a 25K capacity. For a higher capacity alternative, the Curt # C36WR PowerRide has a 30K capacity. The hitch has a actuating handle that's specially designed to be comfortable to use. The hitch also has an integrated teflon lube plate, so you wouldn't need to use any grease on the skid. Both features aren't found on the Companion. Both hitches have...

  • Weight of B&W Companion Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • I'd be happy to give you the weight of the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider # BWRVK3400-5W. I checked with the manufacturer, and the head of the Companion weighs 75 lbs and the base weighs 212 lbs for a total of 287 lbs. It's an extremely durable, high-quality hitch that is built to last. Like all sliding 5th wheel hitches, it is heavy, but if you want to take it out of your truck, there is a part made to do that, the B&W 5th Wheel Lifting Device # BWRVXA3130. You...

  • Does 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 Short Bed Need Slider Hitch To Tow 5th Wheel Trailer?
  • It is possible that you can get away with a fixed 5th wheel hitch in your 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 with the OEM puck system, but typically this is only possible when the trailer has a rotating pin box or really tapered nose to allow for more cab-to-trailer clearance. If your trailer has one of these then a fixed hitch such as the B&W Companion # BWRVK3710 would work perfectly. I really like the B&W hitches due to them being the best on the market, made in America, and being very strong which...

  • Can You Use A Fixed Fifth Wheel Hitch On a 2021 GMC Sierra 2500 6-3/4 Foot Bed W/ OEM Prep PKG
  • It is possible that you will not need a sliding 5th wheel hitch like the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3775 depending on the design of the nose and width of your trailer. The only way to know for sure if a fixed hitch like the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3710 you mentioned will allow you enough cab to trailer clearance to make a full 90 degree turn when installed on your 2021 GMC Sierra 2500 is to use the following...

  • Comparing Curt PowerRide # C36WR and Curt A30 # C16070 5TH Wheel Hitches For 2022 GMC Sierra 3500
  • For me the Curt PowerRide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C36WR does appear to be the best value. The built in lube plates help to ensure that you protect the hitch from getting marred up when connecting to the 5th wheel. And unlike some other manufactures the mounting location for the hardware in a good location. I would recommend keeping a spare set or 2 of the Wear Plates # C52WR in the event that they become damaged since they will not be as easily sourced as a standard lube plate. I do like...

  • What is the Difference Between the B&W RVK3300 vs RVK3305
  • I can confirm for you that there is a difference between the # BWRVK3300 and the # BWRVK3305 with the construction of the base of the hitch, which is where you get the difference in capacities between the two hitches. The 3300 is only rated for 20,000-lbs where the 3305 is rated to pull 25,000-lbs. They do look the same, but the difference will be in the construction and stiffness of the base on the two hitches. Both of these hitches are designed to fit in the factory pucks on Ford...

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty With OEM Puck System
  • There is one 5th wheel hitch that fits your 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty with the factory puck system that really does stand above the rest, which is the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch. The reason why the Companion is the best is because it is constructed to ensure you have the best possible ride; it has a herculean jaw system along with cushioned bushings and a pivoting head, all of which combine to give you the most comfortable and quiet towing experience possible.

  • Is Wedge Needed for B&W Companion and Lippert Turning Point Pin Box
  • A wedge is needed, yes, and the Lippert Turning Point pin box does come with a universal wedge, but it is not a very good fit with the B&W Companion # BWRVK3710. So I highly recommend instead using the 5th Airborne Custom Wedge for B&W Fifth Wheels # SWW-06. This is a much better option than the universal wedge, and our customers who have used it with the Turning Point agree, as you can see by the review I added. I have also added a link below to a video review if you'd like to check...

  • Rail Spacing Needed When Installing The B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # BWRVK2401
  • The distance between the rails should be center to center 22" (pictured below). This rail spacing is considered industry standard. I've attached the installation video for the custom fit B&W rails # BWRVK2401 to help you with the installation so that you can have them ready to go for when your B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider - Dual Jaw - 18,000lbs # BWRVK3270 arrives.

  • 5th Wheel Base Rails for Short Bed 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 for Curt Q20 Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch
  • If you don't have the factory puck system in your 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 with a 6-3/4 foot bed, you can still use the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with R20 Slider # C16536, but you will need to mount it on above-bed rails. For that you'll need the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC Truck # C16429-204. These are the best option because they are a custom fit for your '20 Silverado 2500, and do not require any drilling into your frame rails to install. Not...

  • Can B&W Patriot 18K 5thWheel Hitch Be Made Compatible with Puck System on 2021 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • B&W offers a replacement slider unit for the Patriot 5th wheel hitch, part # BWRVB3270. You'd simply remove the hitch head from the current stationary model and install it on the slider. This being said, the problem comes in when you try to find something to adapt the slider to the GM puck system. Demco states that their # DM6333 adapter isn't compatible with the B&W Patriot Slider. Curt offers a puck adapter, part # C88KR but neither Curt nor B&W will confirm fit, because the haven't...

  • The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch is the best option on the market for a 2020 GMC Sierra 2500. In regards to using the fixed part # BWRVK3710 vs the slider part # BWRVK3775, this is a question we get often but not one we can give a definitive answer on unfortunately because there are simply too many variables. I will however say that with the new GM puck system, more owner's with short beds are able to use the fixed hitch and make full 90 degree turns since the pucks were moved further...

The Curt Q20 # C16530-16025 is designed to fit 2016 - 2019 model year GM 2500s and 3500s with the factory OEM Prep Package. GM changed the layout of the prep package for the 2020 model year, so these 5th wheel hitches needed a slight update. Both of these fixed Curt hitches are great for long bed trucks or 5th wheels that have a Sidewinder pin box. For your 2020 Silverado...

  • Will the B&W Companion Slider for a 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 Fit Under a Tonneau Cover

I don't think this will cause many issues with a tonneau covers even with the factory spray-in bed liner. I commonly see these being stored under retractable tonneau covers without issue, I recommend the Pace Edwards Switchblade Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover part # PE63CV.

  • A fixed fifth wheel hitch is what you are going to need in order to tow your Grand Design with a rotating pin box, the Lippert Turning Point. Rotating pin boxes should not be used with any type of adapter to ensure stability and a solid connection, and not only is the Andersen Ultimate # AM3200 an adapter, but it attaches to standard base rails so you would need to use the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package # RP30154 to mount it.

The short answer is no you do not have to use a slide type hitch. But you do need to have something in play that prevents contact between the cab of tow vehicle and the nose of the 5th wheel when in a turn. This clearance distance is not an issue with typical 5th wheel RV's and tow...

We recommend using a sliding 5th wheel hitch with a short bed truck when the trailer has a standard pin box because there is usually a clearance issue with the trailer making contact with the truck cab on tight turns. The Turning Point takes that issue out of the equation. I personally like the B&W Companion 5th wheel hitches because they are easy to install, put...

What you'll have to do is just cut around the pucks as opposed to having to cut an entire square for the hitch to fit, as this will allow the Companion to mount securely to your truck. There are a couple of options for a Companion that fit the factory puck system of your 2020 F-350, with the only difference being the capacity. - 20,000 lbs: B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel...

  • Reese Under-Bed 5th Wheel Hitch Mounting Option for 2020 Ford F250
  • For a 5th wheel hitch with an under-bed mounting system, the Reese system that includes the # RP30921 sliding Reese M5 5th wheel hitch and the # RP87FR under-bed rail kit would be a good choice for you. You'll want to look under the bed and check that the inner frame brackets are already in place (see provided diagram). If the inner brackets aren't present, you'll also need part # RP27FR. If you'd like to install a 7-way trailer connector in the truck bed, you could do so using part...

  • Can a Fixed 5th Wheel Hitch be used in a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Short Bed w/ OEM Prep Package
  • The OEM prep package (puck system) on your 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500 is going to have the same spacing as it would in a long bed. So if the fixed hitch will fit in the long bed pucks it will fit in the standard (short bed) pucks. The biggest thing to note is turning clearance, while the hitch will fit in the pucks you will want to measure to ensure you have enough turning clearance with a fixed hitch in your short bed.
