  • Slider Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Rail Kit
  • You'll want to verify the capacity of your truck with a Ram dealer but when I searched your truck's capacity it came back as 10,760 lbs which is a 1,000 less than you'd need and not safe for the trailer you are considering. Best option would be to find a lighter trailer and then use the B and W Companion slider hitch part # BWRVK3670 which is a fit for the factory rail kit of your truck and is the best hitch option available.

  • How Do Slider Hitches Normally Get Slid Back into Manuever Position
  • If you check out the 1:30 mark of the review video I attached for the Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Square Tube Slider # PS30094 that you referenced you'll be able to see how the slider mechanism activates. Normally what people do when towing is release the slider mechanism and then use the manual override lever of the their brake controller to hold the trailer in place so that they can pull forward and the hitch will slide back into place.

  • Will the Pro Series 5th Wheel Kit # PS30129 Fit a 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup with an 8' Bed
  • The rail kit that comes with the Pro Series 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Square Tube Slider, Rails and Install Kit # PS30129 will technically fit your 2003 Dodge Ram with an 8' bed when using the Bracket # RP58023 since the rails are universal, but I recommend going with a different kit that is similarly priced. This is an entry-level setup and the 5th wheel hitch uses a slide bar jaw which is very basic and will make your ride uncomfortable and you will feel your trailer pushing and pulling you. Instead...

  • Is B&W Companion Best Option for Fifth Wheel
  • Though I do not know the particulars as to why the Andersen 3220 is not something we carry, I can tell you that with your B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1111 the best option for a fifth wheel hitch is, by far, the B&W Companion # BWRVK3400-5W for the sliding version and # BWRVK3500-5W for the fixed version. You are correct that it is heavy. It does come in two parts which make it more manageable, but it is still likely going to take two people to remove it...

  • Trouble Removing the B&W Companion Hitch Head
  • The process you described to remove the head from your B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter part # BWRVK3500 is correct. The reason you are have having trouble is because of the bushings on the pivot arms. They need to be properly greased each time you remove the head. You can use the LubriMatic White Lithium Grease part # L11350 for this. This should make removing the head much easier though there may still be some rocking involved. The Replacement Head Assembly...

  • Should Pro Series 15K Slider # PS30094 Slide Back and Forth in Locked Position
  • Although the handle for the sliding action of the Pro Series # PS30094 slider is fairly easy to use by hand, it should definitely not be sliding back and forth on its own. If you have it in the locked position but it keeps sliding I would take it back and get a new one. I have attached some review videos for you to check out.

  • Weight of B&W Companion Hitch Head and Base Assembly
  • The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3705 has a shipping weight of 152-lbs, which includes the complete hitch and all of its packaging materials. These packing materials will add roughly 10 pounds to the actual hitch weight. The removable head assembly by itself, part # BWRVC3006, weighs right around 70-lbs and the base portion alone weighs about the same so taking the hitch out of your truck will best be done by removing the head portion first....

  • How to Decide What Truck to Purchase for Towing a Grand Design or Montana 5th Wheel Trailer
  • There are a vast amount of towing vehicles and towing solutions out there so I know how overwhelming it can be, but I can give you some pointers to help make you more confident in your purchases. The best pickups to tow with (whether bumper pull or 5th wheel) are the heavy-duty options like an F-250/F-350 or a 2500/3500. These have more towing power and will allow you to easily tow a good majority of the trailers out there. Along with having an HD pickup the ideal bed size is 8'. This...

  • Socket Post Mounting for B&W Companion on 2007 Dodge Ram 3500
  • First of all, thanks for the kind words, they are certainly appreciated. To the matter at hand, the correct fit for a B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch on a 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 with an 8' bed is part # BWGNRK1313-5W. This is significant because it will determine where the socket post goes when you are installing the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500-5W. You correctly cited your gooseneck ball is just forward of the axle, so you would install the Companion # BWRVK3500-5W in "Position 1" as...

  • Replacement Pivot Pin with Nut and Cotter Pin for Pro Series 20,000 lb Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • By bearing are you referring to the pivot pin on your sliding Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # PS30121? If so we do have that part available, the Replacement Pivot Pin with Nut and Cotter Pin # PS58474; additionally, there is also the Replacement Hardware for Pro Series 20,000-lb 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # PS58475 available, though this is simply the installation hardware. I'm including it in case you happen to need any other hardware for your hitch.

  • Does Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch With Rails, Installation Kit fit 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • Yes, the Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Rails and Installation Kit # PS30132 does fit your 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD; it uses a universal installation kit. Please keep in mind your Silverado will need to have an 8' bed in order to use this hitch because it is a fixed hitch as opposed to the sliding hitch you'd need for a short bed.

  • Excessive Movement Between the Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch and 5th Wheel Trailer King Pin
  • First, make sure that the jaws are fully closing around the king pin and that they are locked into place. If not then that would be why you are experiencing so much movement. If they are fully closing and locking then it is possible that the movement is actually coming from somewhere else such as at the connection between the head and the center section or the feet and the OEM Ford mounts. There are some things you can look at on the hitch to determine if the jaws are not fully closing....

  • Cost Effective 5th Wheel Hitch for a 1997 Ford F-350
  • I cannot say I am familiar with the 5th wheel hitch you are referencing but judging by the mounting feet, this hitch used a custom underbed mounting kit that I am sure is no longer available. Therefore, no we do not have a way to make this hitch fit your 1997 Ford F-350. Instead, I recommend the Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # PS30094 if you have a short bed or part # PS30855 if you have a long bed. In order to install either hitch you can then use the Reese Universal Base Rails...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation to Be Used with Lippert Turning Point Pin Box
  • Pin boxes that pivot like the Trailair Turning Point or the Reese Sidewinder should not be used with the B and W Companion hitches that install to a gooseneck hitch. You will need a hitch setup that attaches at four corners of the hitch and not just a center post. We can help with that. For a hitch the Reese # RP30047 would work well and then to install it you'd need a custom install rail kit like the Reese # RP50066-58 which will minimize drilling and install time when compared to a...

  • How to Remove Curt Q20 Head Unit that is Stuck
  • If you flip your Q20 5th Wheel Hitch # C16530-16021 upside down you will see that there is a pilot that extends below the bearing shaft, through a rubber grommet in a square pad. My contact at Curt said that the rubber square is holding onto that pilot which is why you are having trouble removing the head. With the Q20 flipped over, take some WD-40 or some soapy water and spray that rubber grommet and the pilot to help loosen the connection. After applying the lubricant, flip the Q20...

  • How the Sliding Mechanism on the Demco Hijacker Works
  • The action of the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch part # DM8550024 is very smooth. It uses a rack and pinion operation to move the hitch head which has a mechanical gear that will do its job no matter the terrain you are on. The only issue with uneven terrain is the uncoupling and coupling procedures which will need to be done when the trailer is no more than 15 degrees from the tow vehicle. I have attached a review and install video of the hitch for you as well.

  • Is a Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Required for a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with 6-1/2 Bed
  • There needs to be some sort of pin box or hitch extension in order to tow a 5th wheel trailer and make full 90 degree turns with your 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with the 6-1/2' bed assuming the trailer does not have a tapered nose. For a sliding 5th wheel hitch, I recommend the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # 16516 with the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit part # C16400-204. For a fixed 5th wheel hitch, I recommend the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16115 with...

  • I believe you are referring to a Tow Ready gooseneck hitch which was rebranded as "Draw-Tite" like part # 9460-48. There is a solution for you to use the sliding B&W Companion # BWRVK3400-5W in the short bed of your 2006 Ford F-350 but unfortunately there are no adapters for it to fit the round gooseneck receiver you currently have. Instead you will need to install the B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1108-5W which has the squared receiver you are needing. If you would rather not swap...

  • B&W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches for a 2019 Ford F-250 with Factory Prep Package
  • The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3200 is designed to fit industry standard above the bed rails so it is not a fit for the Ford factory prep package that will be in your 2019 Ford F-250. Assuming that the Ford prep package does not change between 2018 and 2019 you will be able to instead use the B&W Companion # BWRVK3300 or # BWRVK3305 for a long bed or use Companion Slider # BWRVK3370 for a short bed. I have linked videos on all 3 of these hitches for you.

  • Compatibility of Sidewinder Pin Box Replacement with Sliding Hitch In Locked Position
  • Yes. You can use a sliding hitch like the 15K Pro Slider with a Sidewinder as long as it is always in the front locked towing position. You should never use a Sidewinder as well as the slider in the turning position because it will put too much weight behind your rear axle with that 22 inch offset of the Sidewinder. The only exception to this is if you lock the turret on the Sidewinder in which case you can then use the slider and would need to for turning clearance. If you want to...

  • Auxiliary Fuel Tank for a 2013 Ram Short Bed
  • We do have some auxiliary fuel tanks so to determine if any will fit your requirements you would need to go by the dimensions. Tank # DZ91752X measures is 59-1/2 inches across, 9 inches front to back, and 22-1/2 inches tall including the cap. This is the best option since all of the others are much wider and would interfere with the 5th wheel hitch for sure.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation to Install Curt Q24 Hitch in 2014 Ford F-450
  • Your Curt Q24 fifth wheel hitch part # C16245 has to install in fifth wheel rails and can't attach directly to a vehicle. For a Curt rail kit confirmed to fit your 2014 Ford F-450 you'd want the custom install kit part # C16424-204 which is a confirmed custom fit and would work well.

Then I recommend using the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider - Single Jaw - Above Bed - 13,000 lbs # DM8550040. This is the only hitch that will work without replacing your trailer pin box to give you the necessary turning clearance. It has 22-1/2 inches of travel to accommodate. All other...

It cannot be installed in standard rails and there is no adapter made to allow mounting this hitch in a Ford truck with the factory 5th wheel prep. But we do offer many options in a direct-fit 5th wheel hitch you can simply drop into the pucks in your F-450's bed. These hitches include Reese, Curt...

Without this locking plate the king pin will pivot inside your Demco Autoslide.

I know that isn't the best news.

  • Can a 2018 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The auto-sliding hitch would have to travel a substantial distance to be able to safely make 90 degree turns without the truck cab and trailer coming into contact with each other. The auto-slider hitch with the most travel is the Demco HiJacker 13K # DM8550040 for above the bed rails. It has an astonishing 22-1/2 inches of travel. For an installation kit you will need # RP30035-31. It looks like the trailer you want to tow is under the 13K capacity of this hitch so no worries there....

  • We have a really nice selection of fifth-wheel hitches available that are confirmed to mount directly to the factory pucks in the bed of your 2017 Ford F-250. If you have an 8 foot bed, I highly recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3300.

  • Solution for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitting Side Rails of 2015 Ram 3500
  • Looking at the pictures you attached (thank you!) I think your best option to prevent your trailer from hitting the top rails of your Ram 3500 is to raise the trailer a bit. A Curt 5th Wheel Hitch with a sliding base isn't going to help with clearance between the trailer overhang and top rails and there isn't much else you can do with your pin box and hitch setup. It looks like its possible that you have already done this, but I recommend looking at a Dexter Over-Under Conversion Kit....

The only other note is that you must have standard, above-bed base rails such as # RP30035-31 in your 2017 Ford F-150 and not any type of gooseneck adapter plate; the Demco is not compatible with an adapter plate.

  • Where Will a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Centered on a 1982 Chevy C/K Series Pickup Truck
  • Most 5th wheel hitches will be mounted so that the trailer king pin is either centered over the rear truck axle or slightly in front if the axle center line. It really depends on the installation kit used. On a 1982 Chevy C10 I recommend Reese universal installation kit # RP30035. With this kit installed the center of the king pin will be approximately 3-1/2 inches forward of the center of the rear axle. I have linked the installation instructions for you.

If your truck has the factory rail kit (with hitch mounting pucks in the bed) then the best option is the B&W Companion hitch model # BWRVK3670.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 Towing Salem Lite 5th Wheel Trailer
  • It is best to select a 5th wheel hitch (and tow vehicle too, for that matter) that offers a higher towing capacity than what you actually need for your specific trailer's GVWR. This extra capacity becomes safety margin and also using a hitch below its maximum rating often means it will operate better and last longer than one that has been used right at its limit. The right hitch depends on your trailer GVWR and your bed length; 8-foot long bed trucks can use a fixed hitch like Reese...

For your truck I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit # RP50064-58.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-350 Short Bed Towing Montana 3150RL
  • Since the nose of your Montana 3150RL is designed for short bed turning clearance and your 2018 Ford F-350's short bed is actually longer than most short beds at 6-3/4 feet you'd most likely never need the use of a slider. Because of that the B and W part # BWRVK3370 would be the better choice if you have the factory rail kit or part # BWRVK3270 for if you do not. Most likely you'd even be fine with the fixed version part # BWRVK3300 if you had the rail kit or part # BWRVK3255 actually.

  • The Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30047 that you recently acquired will physically fit and attach to base rails on your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500, the issue though is the truck's short 6-1/2 foot bed.

  • Clearance Needed Between Top of Tailgate and Bottom of 5th Wheel Trailer with Sliding Hitch
  • In general you will want to have at least 6 inches of clearance between the top of the bed rails or tailgate and the bottom of the trailer loft. This gives you enough room to prevent the trailer contacting the rails and tailgate which can cause damage to both the trailer and your truck. If you are having some clearance issues, see if you can adjust the height of your existing fifth-wheel hitch. Most pin boxes can also be adjusted vertically to help with this issue.

  • Should I Use a Slider 5th Wheel Hitch or Sidewinder to Tow a 2017 Keystone Fusion Toy Hauler
  • The best bed length for towing a 5th wheel trailer is an 8 foot bed. You won't have to spend extra money on a slider hitch or special pin box and there won't be any clearance issues when turning. But I do understand that a crew cab truck with an 8 foot bed is a whole lotta truck. If you do want to go to a short bed truck then I recommend the Demco HiJacker # DM8550034. This HiJacker is an auto-sliding hitch meaning you won't have to get out of the truck to operate the sliding mechanism....

  • Choosing Between Standard or 5th Wheel Trailer for 2018 Ford F-150 Short Bed
  • For your 2018 Ford F-150 with a short bed, I recommend going with a tow behind trailer over a fifth-wheel trailer for a couple of reasons. The first thing you will want to consider is just the cost to get your truck set up to tow a trailer. Since your F-150 features a short bed, you will need to have a sliding fifth-wheel hitch if you went with a fifth-wheel trailer. This is needed to provide you with the required cab clearance when making tight turns and they tend to be quite a bit...

If you are having trouble unhitching your Sidewinder from your 5th wheel hitch I suggest making sure you have both truck and trailer on level ground and in a straight line with each other.
