Product shipped/arrived timely from eTrailer; installation instructions provided by Anderson Manuf are very clear/easy to follow. Hitch is very easy to install. Attached to 30' fifth wheel, 11,000lbs tow weight and immediately pulled the trailer thru steep hill country without any hesitation. Pulling cattle trailers/heavy hay trailers, i know heavy duty hitches when i see them and this is a great product; HIGHLY recommended. Remote latching mechanism is a great feature; it too is very solid/secure 11335

Seems to be a very well built product. Good price and shipped fast. Fairly simple to install, I recommend having a friend or two around to help tighten everything down. Also I preferred to bolt rather than weld ( unless you have a closed off pin box), you never know when you may need to go back to fifth wheel in a hurry. 90774

How does collar system attach to king pin ? Thanks

-- comment by: L T - 11/19/2013

There is a threaded collar that is fitted to the king pin. You would slide the coller up on the king pin. While holding the collar, you will take a split collet and fit that where the jaws normally grab the king pin. You will slide the threaded collar over the split collet and using either a pulley puller or Andersens hammer to seat the collar fully onto the split collet. I have added a pictorial of this portion of the instructions to the photo gallery and linked it here as well. The base of the adapter threads onto the collar and is tightened to ~1200 ft. lbs. The process for getting that much torque is outlined in the instructions and uses the included spanner wrench and a 4 foot cheater pipe. Finally, you will use either the inlcuded four Grade 8 bolts or four 1 inch tack welds to finish securing the adapter to the pin box. If you want to be able to remove adapter, make sure you can access the inside of the pin box so you can use the bolts vs. welds.

The hitch was shipped the same day it was ordered. It arrived in five days in excellent condition and with no parts missing. It took me longer to install it because I had to remove the king pin box component to drill the bolt holes and mount the bolts to provide the additional support I wanted. An excellent product and a good price. 287365

I recieved your shipment in seven days (FREE) was able to install it myself in about 2 hours with help to lift the 5th wheel down to floor level to drill six holes mounted the spacers as per instructions printed out. put the goose neck back in place and the (easy) job was done ! 78770

I have pulled my camping trailer approx. 300 hundred miles since I installed the adapter. It works great. Installation was pretty simple, the only difficult part was drilling the four holes thru my fifth wheel box. E-trailer service and shipping were great! 112247

Comments

I have an Ultra-Fab trailair air ride kingpin system on my fifth wheel. Can the gooseneck adapter be installed on that type of system?

-- comment by: Deriek E - 08/14/2013

According to Ultra-Fab, the Trailair pin boxes are not to be used with any kind of gooseneck adapter where the pin box is adapted to attach to a gooseneck ball. You can however adapt the truck to accept a 5th wheel hitch. Your best bet would be a fifth wheel hitch that anchors into a gooseneck like the Draw-Tite Hi-Rise, part 9480 or a Curt Fifth Wheel Adapter plate like C16210 or 16310.

Installed in about ten minutes, ( I used a bearing puller to seat the bushings ) five minutes to tack weld it into place and done. Pulls better than a fifth wheel hitch IMO. Seems to be made very well. Took two days for deliver. Very satisfied 66241

Installed on my fifth wheel. Easy to follow instructions, total time was about an hour. The lock is easy to place, install and use. Be advised: if your king pin box is enclosed, you will need to weld this product on. 436914

A friend and I installed the gooseneck adaptor with no trouble at all. The first time I pulled my trailer, I didn't think it was behind me. It made the pull so easy. Thanx so much..... 96509

by: Bryan T.04/17/2017


WOW, how easy was that. With a little help to tighten up unit before bolting to plate, it is a one person job. Cant wait to try it out. 368732

Really like the cable to release the lock. Would like see the set bots to be a hex head to make it easier to torque down properly. 61041

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

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
