Other than being heavy to set in the truck bed, the hitch is easy to install into a B&W gooseneck and it stayed well secured without any shifting of the base for a 400 mile round trip towing a10k lb trailer. The 4 degree side to side tilt does not seem necessary and it does make it difficult to properly torque the mounting nut. The side to side tilt also adds a good bit of weight. 431910

Not recommended at all in a short box. The hitch sits 5" forward on center axle. Cab clearance is greatly reduced. Hitch doesn't even come close to sitting flat in the truck. Hitch is very sloppy in the Goose Neck receiver. I had to spend a lot of time and money to have the hitch reworked. The only reason I gave a 2 star rating is because of the Great Customer Service at ETrailer!!! Otherwise it would get no stars!!!! 420162


Comments

Clarke,Thank you for your review. This hi-rise adapter is not recommended in a short bed truck. This adapter will not provide enough clearance in tight turning situations. A slider hitch is normally recommended in short bed trucks but Draw-tite does not manufacture a slider version of this adapter. If you have a hide-a-goose setup you can use a convert a ball adapter with an offset. Part number: C5GX1216. This will allow you to use your gooseneck hitch in your short bed truck to tow a 5th wheel. The coupler bolts to your trailers king pin and connects to the gooseneck ball. The offset should give you enough clearance to make tight turns. I have also included a help article for additional reference.

Fit, finish, instructions and overall quality are top notch. Assembly is easy with basic tools. Customer Service here was great too. Because I was in a real rush to get the hitch, they went out of their way to break it up into two shipments that could be handled by UPS vs having it one package that had to come truck freight. As a result, I got it when I needed it. Thank you very much, Larry. 324071

What a wonderful experance I have had working with etrailer. The follow-up and concern to make it right, was over whelming. My wife counted five phone calls, to keep us infromed about a lost box, by UPS. When found the box was danaged and a part was missing. The part was FedX to me next day! I know i will be using etrailer again. 411649

I ordered this hitch, when it came in the box was damaged and parts missing. Called them had the missing parts in a few days. Hitch is great and was the best price around. etrailers is an excellent company to do business with. 419335

by: Scott T06/03/2017


The reason I didn't rate it higher is it doesn't sit real flat in the bed and bangs around a little when starting and stopping. Otherwise I would be happier if it was easier to remove. 388284

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. 425732

I ordered the B&W companion gooseneck-to-5th wheel on a tuesday I think. She said depending on where it is shipped from it should get to me Monday. I neede it yesterday! 3 days later on Friday the UPS man was in front of my house struggling and cursing lol. I went to help him and to my surprise, it was my gooseneck/5th wheel! She came thru like a trooper. The product is great and I followed the Etrailer instructional video to install. I hardly looked at the instructions. Etrailer is officially my go spot for anything trailer related period! The videos are A-1 and so easy in simple english. Saved me $100s. Etrailer is 100%. Thank you Etrailer!! 348085

Works very well, easy to assemble with instructions. No rails to install or left in bed when not in use, easy to remove with two people, can be removed with one person if able to lift it; it easily separates in two pieces with pull of couple pins. Only complaint is, sometimes it's hard to tell if it's released (pin and Plate separation gap) when docking trailer but no big deal, other than that; it's a solid product. I pull around 15K with no issues. I would definitely purchase another one and I have recommended to a friend, who also purchased one and seems pleased with his. 343633

"Companion" is the perfect name for this 5th wheel hitch. I already have the B&W gooseneck hitch in my truck and needed a 5th wheel hitch to tow my new 42' toy hauler. I love the fact that it uses the gooseneck for attachment. I didn't want to mount rails in the bed of my truck or have a permanently attached 5th wheel hitch. It is very easy to install and remove. I have only towed my toy hauler one time so far and had no issues whatsoever. It is very easy to operate. I highly recommend this product. Thanks B&W for an excellent product. 316363

First dealing with Erika W was great, good product knowledge and told me my product would be at my front door in 3 days - it was. I received the hitch and it took me about an hour to open up, assemble and install. Very straight forward and easy to work with solo. I have yet to connect to my 5th wheel but so far so good. Thanks Erika. 323552

by: James M09/21/2016


So far so good. The installation was really easy. I got lucky by already having the BW Gooseneck hitch in my truck when I purchased it. Knowing what I know now this feel like the best route to go. I can pull it out of my truck and have my entire bed for something else in 30 minutes. Most of my time was assembling the components, which wasn't that long 3 hours maybe. It breaks into 2 pieces so I can lift it all by myself with no problem. I have not pulled my 5th wheel yet, that will be this weekend. I will update afterward. 297041

I pull a 14' goose neck dump trailer and a 10,500 lb fifth wheel camper with a 2008 GMC Sierra 1500. Both are obviously all the truck should handle anyways but I would never try it with a different hitch. There's no play, none, in either even after nine years with the gooseneck receiver and one year with the fifth wheel companion. I travel for work and have pulled the camper 6.5 hours. 10,500 lbs on a bw hitch in your bed is more safe than 5000lb on s tail receiver no doubt. Worth every penny. 434191

Great Product. No issue with install or removal when not needed. use of over head mechanical lifting devise is recommended, if not breaking it down. Always remember to install safety latch pin in receiver handle prior to moving any load. great delivery time of product from manufacture. 382879

Arrived in about 4 days. I ordered it on a Friday evening so that was pretty quick for free shipping. Installed it in about two hrs.took our first trip with the new 5th wheel hitch and it is awesome. It doesn't make any clunky noise when starting and stopping. Well worth every penny. 396175

This product stood up exactly as promised. Easy to install, take your time get your measurement first it will be easier on you in the long run. Instructions where easy to understand but if you get confused you can find video's online if that is easier. Also at the angle I was at, it released very easy and no binding. Very easy to install and operate. The big plus is when your done with hauling, its easy to take out and have the back of your truck bed back to normal. 191199

I ordered the hitch on Wednesday afternoon, after I had purchased my fifth wheel, and it was delivered Friday. No shipping charges. Usually when you order online with no shipping cost it takes a week or longer to receive. I saved about $400 buying from Etrailer, and it was much easier than buying from the dealer. Rose was very helpful in my purchase, and a pleasure to do business. I will definitely use Etrailer in the future for all my trailer requirements. 288781

Been using this product for a year now. I won't buy any other brand. The B&W engineers clearly take tremendous pride in their work and it shows in their finished product when it comes to detail and quality. Perfect form, fit and function. The unit is rock solid and basically marries the 5th wheel to the truck. There is literally no play and slop whatsoever. Makes towing very pleasant. If you want the absolute best in the industry, you just found it. 340435

Hitch is awesome but I wasn't impressed that the head and the stand didn't ship together they came separate so that was frustrating and I'm assuming ups is the one that ruined the box and scratched up my brand new hitch. They would probably be better going with a pallet or something. Other thanthat good quality product good sales staff best price on new hitches on the Internet and locally here and the best part these hitches are made in the USA! 279817

All in all everything went together pretty well and I did the install single handed. Couple whacks with a mallet and a few choice %$#@ and a ^%$@!, and it went together exactly as described. Another pair of hands would certainly have helped with the center section but only a bit. Missing one flat and one lock washer- 2 washers away from 5 stars. Can't really complain too much about that so I'm a satisfied customer! Thank you etrailer 302416

Exceeds all expectations both gooseneck 5th wheel and turn over ball but paint is bad quality I complained they send me a paint stix to repair it not very please with it and that was the first time I used it from norht Fla to North Georgia about 300 miles !!! I will have to paint it my self treat to stop rust ! If they would USD a zink crommate primer that would take of ruse and a good Quaiity finish it be unbeatable 286791

One of my best investments works great and kept me from drilling holes in the bed and putting up with brackets.stores in my garage when not in use and works perfect.Comes apart in two pieces to lighten the load when removing from the bed.The pivot action is great along with the cam action lever which engages on contact.Also delivery was great thumbs up to etrailer for another great product.Thank you 433351

This fifth wheel companion is awesome, very stable and secure, easy to install and remove so we have full use of the truck bed. Wonderful to have the option to use gooseneck or fifth wheel in one vehicle. We pull a 44' toy hauler with a 17' garage in the back with 2 trikes and a harley, handles great. Would highly recommend this product! 339135

I couldn't be happier with this hitch. I love the fact that I don't have to have a permanent hitch in my box. It is easy to put this in and out with one person and it takes about 2-3 minutes to do. I looked on quite a few sites and etrailer.com provided the best value for money. I would recommend to everyone. 382252

This is a well built piece. I converted my gooseneck to fifth wheel and I am impressed with the quality of the B&W Companion hitch. It makes hooking up and releasing my trailer so much easier. It also pulls so much smoother than the gooseneck. I am pleased with my conversion. 367743

Bought the B&W Companion fifth wheel hitch one year ago. I have seen many other brands and none compare with this. Easy to use, built strong. If I was buying a hitch today I would buy the Conpanion again. Have not seen another built as heavy as this one. 329102

The hitch has been working really well. No complaints. In fact, several fifth wheel service people said it was their preferred hitch because of the jaws design for holding the kingpin. It is super easy to hook up and unhook. Could not be happier. 426234
