Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


I have a 2016 Ram 2500 and I currently tow a 36 ft. 5th wheel that weighs in about 15,000 loaded. This hitch is overkill for me on the tow rating but that's what I wanted. I have been towing for years and this is my third hitch and I don't want to have to think twice about the hitch when I'm climbing and descending mountain passes. I live in Washington state and I go all over the Pacific Northwest with the trailer. I have been in situations where I pushed the limits of my gear. I wanted safety, ease of use, high quality, American made, and peace of mind and this hitch delivers all of that. The hitch arrived in great shape for being such a heavy beast. The directions are easy to follow and installation was very simple. Follow the directions and with a helping hand you will have this hitch installed in about 30 minutes and I go slow to make sure everything is exactly correct. The hitch is heavy so moving it into place and adjusting the latches takes some muscle. Other than that this thing is plug-and-play. I towed this weekend for the first time with this hitch. I went on a short 250 mile trip. This hitch makes ZERO noise. It's sturdy. There is no play in the connection and the truck and trailer are one. This hitch feels incredibly smooth to tow with. No knocking, rocking....nothing. Just smooth, strong stability. The best hitch I have used, easily. The best part is hitching and unhitching, so much safer and easier than any hitch I have seen or used. Some hitches tend to bind or have tension loaded making unhitching a multi-step, sometimes less safe process than it should be. Not this hitch. Drop year landing gear, pull the pin, and drive away. Anyone who has ever fussed with a 5th wheel hitch hear me me now. If your are sitting on the fence and wondering if this hitch is truly a 5 star hitch stop wondering and pull the trigger. It's a five star hitch and worth every penny. And buy it right here at e-trailer. Excellent customer service and solid pricing. They truly care about the customer. They answer their phones too if you have any questions. In today's world that means more than I can say. 346705

I have had this hitch for a year now, and pulled 5000+ miles. The hitch has been flawless with one exception. I experienced a problem with the factory puck system mounting (Ford truck). When taking the hitch out before winter, I noticed a couple of latches were loose. I assumed the castle nut just needed to be tightened a hole or two. However, what I found was that even if I tightened the castle nut all the way, it would still not latch to the truck (no resistance when turning the handle). After numerous calls with B&W, they sent me new cam latches. However, those did not solve the problem. B&W thought maybe the shear pins sheared, and cause the cam to loosen. However, I don't believe this is the case. The shear pins were intact and the cam was in the exact same position as the new cam latches I received. Also, I had never over-tightened them. Apparently B&W has seen problem when user use a hammer to close the latched. I've never done that, so I don't think that was my issue. It appears to me they have a tolerance stack-up issue, and their factory setup does not accommodate the variations from vehicle to vehicle, or the compression of their spring washer. To resolve, I used a large washer below the spring washer to take up the excess slack and still keep the castle nut at a level where it lined up with the cotter pin hole. This problem was a little nerve racking, since this is the sole mechanism for securing the hitch to the truck. This is not where you want to have a problem! Aside from this issue, as critical as I felt it was, I would still recommend this hitch. The ease of removing is awesome. The towing experience is good, although I have not used any other 5th wheel hitch so I can't really say this one is the best on the market. I would buy one again though. 256797

--------------This is a very strong hitch with an innovative mount.-------------------- I have been using the hitch for about a year now. I purchased the combo kit with the gooseneck in bed parts as well as the 5th wheel assembly. I purchased this unit because it can provide both the gooseneck and 5th wheel modes. I installed mine in a 2014 RAM 3500 DRW which already has the basic structure under the bed so the install went very well. I completed the install at home, which took about 4-5 hours. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, plus there are several installation demonstration videos online for my exact truck, so after watching those it was no problem. The 5th wheel works well with no squeaks or rattles. I pull a 35' 13,500lb toy hauler. The hitch parts are made of thick heavy steel which really gives confidence it will pull the heavy loads. The king pin jaws also seem a bit larger and more heavy duty than other hitches with the same ratings. The hitch also has a lot of adjustments both up and down, and for and aft, which helped to dial in the hitch very well to my trailer. It does convert from 5th wheel to gooseneck easy enough. Just remember it does require a socket to relieve the tension on the gooseneck adapter before it can be released. This is not a big deal, just makes sure to bring a wrench along if you are planning to swap modes while away from home. There is only one small aspect that keeps me from rating the hitch as excellent. I have noticed that the paint/coating scrapped of rather easily in the mouth of the coupler. I guess I rubbed the side of the mouth with the trailer pin when coupling up and it caused the paint to scrape off. Since then the coating is also starting to peel all around the jaw area. 264228

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


I recently purchased a Curt A20 for GM Puck System and had a lot of noise issues from the hitch when starting and stopping. Curt claimed the spacing designed into the jaw system could make the noise or the factory brake controller is not programmed correctly to the weight of my trailer which is making the trailer to slam forward and then reverse. Curt also asked me to lock out my pin box (Rotaflex) to stop the potential over travel of the hitch head. I did lock out my pin box and it still made noise. Curt did send me a replacement head with no issues, but it unfortunately did not change the issue. At that point they told me there was nothing they could do if the hitch was within spec. It is performing to their design specifications. So....because I was not happy with the product, I decided to called etrailer and ordered a B&W Companion for the GM Puck system. They were extremely helpful with the order and it arrived very fast. I put it in the truck and connected the rv. Guess what no noise, no slamming. B&W did a great job in the design of this hitch to vertically eliminate any noises. I am so impressed with how quiet this hitch is that I should have strongly considered the B&W hitch in the first place. The price difference was difficult for me to justify initially, but now that I have had the two different hitches, it is more than worth the additional money. Overall, Curt tried to help me address the concern and makes good products. I believe the hitch would serve the purpose, but comparing it to the B&W, the B&W is definitely the best hitch I have experienced overall so far and etrailer is the place to get it from. 392973

Big and heavy . Took 4 of us to install it. Think I got the side support placement right. Will have to wait till I hook up too see. One complaint and the mfg. should do something about it. The handle can be reached from the side but not the locking pin. I'm going to have to figure out a way to lock it as at my age It is now a problem. Will come up with something that can be done from the side. 229735

On that issue I recommend a step you can leave in bed to pull out and step up to secure lock. Thats my plan for now.

One further comment. The jaws as seen from the back when closed should be painted yellow. Then it could easily be noted that they are closed.

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


After buying a 2015 Dodge Ram 2500 with the new puck system I researched several fifth wheel hitches and decided on the BWRVK3600 based on the fact it was an OEM part that would fit in the puck system without adding an additional rail system, and it being American made was absolutely a very nice bonus. I was extremely pleased with the exceptional customer service and how quickly the hitch arrived after ordering. Upon receiving and opening the boxes, I was truly impressed with the quality workmanship and the heavy duty weight of the hitch and the included parts. Coming from the engineering field I have learned that a product is only as good as its quality assurance, and your quality assurance appears to have extremely high standards! Prior to receiving the hitch I had viewed the video online, and as recommended I read all the included instructions first. It was easy to understand and I encountered no problems with the installation. Not being in a hurry and taking my time, it took me 3-4 hours to install, and then I hooked up to my fifth wheel to check the height. Afterward, I did make one adjustment to the height of the pivot arms, and now it is a perfect fit. I will definitely recommend your company and hitch to anyone looking for one and have already shown mine to several neighbors. Thank you for making an OEM high quality product! Cheers!

Super fast shipping, came in on time. Convenient 2 boxed packages. Heavy! I started installing around 5:30pm, was hooking up to 5th wheel and testing at 7:15pm... Couple of interruptions would have been quicker. My Rep, Chris W. was extremely helpful, pleasure working with her! Whole unit is quality IMHP... Being safety freak I added some extra lock washers & nuts to flange plate bolts... Bolt sticks out roughly 3/4 inch after torqueing to 80lbs. per instructions. Added washer and nut to complete very solid connection... I could not be more happy or impressed with whole operation... Feel much better about cost now that I have laid hands on it...

Simple instructions and straight forward install, a bit heavy without an extra set of hands, but manageable (leverage is my friend). I've been using it for the past couple of months and am pleased with the companion hitch to pull a 35' fiver. The only thing I could have used in the instructions were recommendations for positioning (due to my lack of experience), but my initial placement worked out just right, the rig is well balanced, hauls very well and without chucking. Plenty of space in my longbed truck to clear a 50Gl. auxiliary tank and toolbox (and no worries about busting the back window out). Since I've got a bit of a steep learning curve ahead (I've hauled plenty of bumper pulls and goosenecks, but this is my first big 5th wheel), I greatly appreciate the ease of use as well as being able to free up my bed space when I reach my destination. Great product, can definitely recommend it. 232692

Purchased the BWRVK3600 Fifth Wheel Hitch a couple of weeks ago. This is a great product that arrived on time as stated. Assembly Instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I took my time but the whole assembly process only took about a half hour. I installed the assembled hitch into a 2014 Dodge Ram 3500, that has the factory prep towing package. The base sat into the puck style system with no trouble. Just some minor adjustments to the latches to get them to fit snugly as per the instructions. I used it to tow my new 40 ft. tow hauler home a week ago. Hooking up was so easy it slid right into the locking jaws with ease. In fact it went so smooth that I started to skid the RV on its landing gear. This fifth wheel hitch preformed beautifully during the tow. Taking off and stopping went very smoothly with no jerking motion. Backing into the RV site and unhooking was also very easy even having to jack knife the trailer into the site in uneven ground. As soon as I released the locking lever, released the parking brake, and put the transmission in neutral, the truck just rolled ahead with ease. I am really impressed with the whole process of assembly, installation, and operation of this fifth wheel hitch. It is a little heavy, but it is built that way for a purpose, the quality of workmanship is top notch. I look forward to years of service out of this fifth wheel hitch.Being made in America is the big plus. Thank you to B & W for a great product. 194163

I owned another brand of hitch for many years and always thought it was OK. When I bought our new 2015 Ram 3500, I ordered it with the 5th wheel prep kit - which meant it had the pucks for the hitch. After do some Internet research I decided on the B&W Companion hitch. All I can say is WOW! Now this is a HITCH. The hitch head separates from the base for easy storage. The head is not that heavy but the base is a beast. Here's what I love about this hitch: 1. The fit and finish on the hitch is great - the welds are excellent, the paint finish is great, it's obvious when you see this hitch that it is well built. 2. The hitch head is easy to remove. 3. The hitch head has a grease zirk for lubing. 4. The hitch has double locking jaws that give a great secure fit around the king pin. 5. The hitch is quiet - I mean really quiet. It might get noisy after a few years of use but right now it's extremely quiet. 6. The base is easy to install into the truck bed pucks. The instructions included helped me to adjust one of the puck locking pins easily. 7. The hitch is easy to adjust fore/aft and up/down. Not all hitches will allow you to adjust the fore/aft position of the hitch head. This is really a great feature. All in all a great hitch. Perhaps overkill for a 12,000 pound trailer but I like overkill in things like this. Highly recommend the hitch. 295768

All though this hitch is not light (which I knew it would be beefy), it was really simple to install. In all it took about 4 hours to assemble and complete. I am not an novice to assembling heavy and intricate machinery. Reading the instructions completely is a must before starting any process. It looks and works great. The puck system makes it easier to install. And removing the 5th wheel when it is not in use just takes removing two keeper pins and lifting on the release handles. It did take longer to receive the hitch after I ordered it (about a eight days). 183013

We just recently ordered B&W Hitch for our 2017 F350 Dually Long Bed. The process was very smooth. We ordered the Hitch, and we received it within 2 days. It was well packaged and would recommend the hitch. We have not towed with it as of yet, but I can tell its already going to be better than my old Curt Q16 Hitch, Hands Down. Thanks for making this process smooth and Customer Service was great with answering all my questions. Only recommendations to make the install go smoother would be to include the Hex Head Bolt wrench to tighten the handle. 349443

I ordered the hitch online sight unseen. I rarely do this but after reading all the reviews on the hitch, and not just on etrailer.com, I didn't think I could go wrong. Almost every review I read about this hitch was between 4-5 star positive. I checked it over pretty thoroughly via pictures and being a mechanically inclined person, It looked well built from what I could see. My only concern is about the soft sleeve bushings and how long they will the last. Also, can you purchase replacement ones if they wear out. I haven't checked into it yet and it may not be an issue at anyway. I can say though that I am impressed with etrailer.com's service. Their communication throughout the whole process has been great and I even received confirmation today, both from my wife and an etrailer.com email, that the hitch has arrived. I rarely take the time to provide feedback but in this case I felt compelled to do so. Kind of like a tip after a meal. It's not always automatic unless the service warrants it. In this case, it does. Thanks guys (and gals) and I'll not hesitate to purchase from etrailer.com again in the future! 206506

I recently bought a new 2016 Ram 2500 with the factory puck system. I found this hitch and after reading the reviews I decided to get one. The hitch shipped in 2 boxes, and unfortunately they arrived on 2 different days. The hitch head showed up in the factory box, but for some unknown reason UPS decided to deliver the base without its box. It was scratched up and had tape residue all over it where they had taped the pivot arms and parts bag to it. I called customer service to find out what happened and they assured me that was not how they shipped it. They immediately shipped me a new base, which arrived in its box, and had UPS pick up the scratched one all at their cost. Etrailer's customer service I received exceed my expectations! Talk about making sure your customers are happy. I haven't had the chance to tow with it yet, but I can say the fit and finish of the hitch is awesome. This thing is built like a battleship, even the same color as one. I'll come back and up date my review after I have a chance to tow. 285753

Excellent product, very sturdy design that will surely last years, paint quality is excellent and looks very durable. Hitch work very well to unhook, you don't have to hammer the jaws but you do have to find that sweet spot level Wise and anglewise where it releases easily. So far, very impressed with the Hitch, very quiet because of the incorporated Polyurethane bushings, easy to take off the bed, albeit the Hitch is a little heavy, but I'd rather have a heavier well made Hitch than a flimsy one thats lighter. If you take off the head separately, it makes it way easier to remove. If you're older and not as strong, I'd recommand doing it with 2 people instead of by yourself. Instructions were very good, I love the way the 2 skids "lock" into the grooves of the bed, makes for an incredibly stable and movement free Hitch. No more oblong holes that make noises like other brand's Rail systems. If you want to spend on a Hitch only once and be done with it, go with a B&W Companion with Underbelly gooseneck. 209521

Awesome hitch! Very easy to install (was more difficult to handle and remove the hitch from the wobbly poor fitting shipping container then it was to fit and properly adjust the hitch in my 2016 RAM 2500). Instructions are very clear and easy to follow. This is a very high quality hitch Including the fasteners. Weld quality and powder coat finish is superior to other products I researched or previously owned. Well worth the purchase price. To bad the great looking powder coat was scratched in places from the crummy shipping container causing the base to slide around damaging the high quality finish. e-trailer agent Katie M was awesome to work with and product arrived all the way out here in CA in less then 4 days with the free shipping offer. Overall fantastic hitch and e-trailer is always awesome to work with. If your in the market for a superior fully adjustable 5th wheel hitch for your RAM 2500 or 3500 do not hesitate to go with this super quality B&W all made in the USA hitch. 258650

1 year in and hitch is working very well. Still tight fitting with no signs of wear. Following the lubrication guidelines keeps the hitch working perfectly. The poor manufacturer shipping packaging container that caused so much damage to my new hitch finish is still a huge contention for me. How can such a awesome quality be packaged in such a shoddy card boards box allowing the hitch to be scratched heavily and legs poking out the side of the shipping container. It is a shame a $1100 dollar hitch was placed in a 50 cent shipping box. Terrible quality control by the manufacturer.

Love it. I took it out of the box, walked it over to my truck, and set into the openings in my truck bed and turned the handles and put pins in and I didn't even have to adjust it it was perfectly tight. Put the two pieces on to hold the top piece and added a little Grease and it was ready to go. I have a 2017 Ram 3500 4 X4 long bed with airbags and mounted it forward and up all the way.

I just received the hitch. All was delivered as expected and quickly. I have not installed the hitch yet due to the weight. It will take at least two people to lift the base into the truck. I chose to purchase from etrailer as no one locally could beat the price and with free shipping and no tax i saved several hundred dollars. etrailer was easy to order from and very friendly on the phone. I purchased this hitch because i just bought a 2017 Ram 3500 with the puck mounting system in the bed. I have a 40 ft BigHorn that weighs in at just under 16k. My old truck had a 16k hitch with the rails above bed. I never felt the old hitch was safe pulling a trailer at close to it's capcity. The new B&W 25k hitch is overkill but worth the peace of mind. I love the puck system as there is nothing left in the bed when the hitch is removed. Makes it easy to use the whole bed when time comes to haul other things like construction materials. 421897

I recently bought the gooseneck and fifth wheel b&w hitches to install on my 2008 f 250. I could not be more happy with the products and customer service that etrailer provides. I also bought The Pollack t connector that was also easy to use. The install was done at home and easy to understand. Thanks again. 372927

This is the ideal hitch for my Ram 2500 MegaCab. The MegaCab does not allow for a long bed and my RamBox setup causes issues with traditional fifth wheel setups so I needed to go with the Reese Sidewinder but was looking for the ideal hitch set up for my factory prep kit. This heavy duty hitch is the perfect combination and installs easily. Most importantly when used in conjunction with the Sidewinder I can make incredibly tight turns with plenty of room to spare. etrailer support was fantastic. 430845

Best Hitch on the market if you have ford factory gooseneck prep system. Heavy Duty, and secure. No more chucking back and forth. Would recommended 100 times over. Customer service was super, and free shipping was awesome. Arrived a day earlier than anticipated. Etrailer is top notch 198684

Still the best 5th wheel hitch on the market. Not a single problem.

Pretty easy install. Spend the 5 minutes to take the heat shield and spare tire off. The little rubber "gripper" on the handle pulled off the first pull. Maybe B&W could put a little glue on it . 380980

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

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


New to 5th wheeling and already I am the envy of all my 5th wheeling friends. It is a custom hitch for my 2015 Ram3500. My truck was purchased factory prepped for the custom hitch. Besides the initial setup, 10 minutes gets the hitch in or out. The head detaches but the base is still heavy and awkward for 1 to handle. I have done the procedure by myself without assistance a few times so far. Built myself a table on wheels that I can roll up to the back of my truck and set the hitch on. I use plywood on the truck bed to slide the hitch on once out of the truck bed anchors. The lower shelve has room for my genset along with other items. The hook up procedure is an ease as the hitch pivots both ways. 316545

The B&W hitch arrived in 3 days, in perfect condition. The packaging was top-notch. The assembly and installation instructions were clear and straightforward to follow. The hitch fit perfectly in the Ford factory-installed mounting points. I chose the B&W hitch even though it was a bit more expensive. After seeing the hitch, I'm impressed with the quality and "beefiness". This hitch is definitely heavy duty. I haven't hooked it to my trailer yet, but I'm confident it will be a perfect connection. This is a huge improvement over my previous Reese 16k slider hitch. This is my first transaction with etrailer.com. I'm impressed with the ease of ordering and the very fast shipment. 199176

Big thanks to the etrailer team for professionalism, friendly, courtesy and responsive customer service. They were with me from the time I placed my order till delivery. I ordered a B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch which was delivered in 2 days. The shipping box was torn open during shipping which resulted in the paint on the base being rubbed to bare metal. Rose and Cathy were very supportive in making it right. Another base was shipped and double boxed the second time. They took great care of me and I appreciate that. I will definitely order from etrailer again and highly recommend them. Great prices to boot. Thanks again to the etrailer team. I will provide product feedback once installed. 379067

Wow is all I can say. Took about an hour to get the hitch completely installed into my Ram 3500 DRW factory puck system. The hitch is well built and the ease of use is amazing. After using a slider on my last truck due to a short bed I did a lot of research on what I would work best on my new truck with an 8ft bed with the factory pucks. After reading lots of reviews I went with the B & W Companion. This hitch is far superior to the previous one. The hitching and unhitching is smooth. 377356

This is a really nice hitch. While towing everything is quit with a nice solid feel whether you are turning, stopping, or rolling on down the road. I have a RAM Dually with the factory 5th wheel prep option and the installation was a perfect fit. I did not have to adjust anything. I took my time and total installation was less than two hours. Yes you are going to pay 2 to 3 hundred more for the B&W but I honestly feel that you get your money worth. Also, eTrailer website was easy to order from and shipping to the east coast was fast. Ordered on Monday and received hitch early Thursday morning during Christmas week. Excellent experience all around. Thanks eTrailer. 327542

Could not be happier with this purchase. Me and my brother-in-law installed the hitch in about 30 minutes. I drove to Ohio from the west coast to pick up my new 5th wheel. Five day drive back home with no problems. Felt safe and secure. Hitch rated at 25K, but my rig is only 14K loaded. I love over kill. Safety first. I had a blow out the first day on the return home. 70mph and never felt it. Stable. People had to dive up to me and let me know about the tire. Lucky me. No damage to the trailer. Again, I could not be any happier with this hitch. Also, a little note about etrailer. Great customer service and very quick on the shipping. 360889

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

Thanks etrailer for your excellent customer service. I was in a jam, and had to purchase a new Dodge Ram pickup to haul my trailer to Florida. I needed a new fifth wheel hitch, for the new Dodge puck mount system. I explained that I needed this hitch ASAP, and your customer service came through. I was a very pleasant experience, and customer service stated that they would rush the order to my house. I would recommend etrailer to all my friends, and I will be ordering from you again. The order arrived at my door within three days. Thanks to you all at etrailer, and continue to strive for your customers. BWRVK3600 fifth wheel Hitch 2016 Ram 3500 256681

This hitch came as exactly advertised. It fits perfectly into the bed of my F350 Super Duty that was 5th wheel ready. It is solid and nice looking as well. I saved lots of money by purchasing and installing it myself. It is not only the product that deserves an excellent rating but trailer as well. When I found the same hitch for a bit less they honored their pledge to credit the difference by 110%. They were wonderful and a company that will get my business over and over again and you should to. Many kudos for a company that "does it right". You will not find another company that matches their honesty and integrity. 271117

I purchased a new 2017 Ford F350 Super Duty and was in need for a new fifth wheel hitch. After reading the reviews of hitches on this web site and several RV forum web sites I realized this hitch received the most recommendations. The hitch was delivered in 3 days and packaging was excellent and fully intact. All hardware was included and assembly was very easy and required about one hour. The hitch is very high quality and has a very nice painted finish. The hitch fit perfectly into the factory puck system from Ford. You can tell this hitch is made with Pride in America!!!!!!!!

The hitch arrived as promised. The instructions were fairly straight forward, although I would suggest reading the entire set through once before you start installation. I spent approximately two hours for assembly and installation. A second pair of hands would be a good thing to have available during the entire time. The unit seems to be strong and well built. I would recommend eTrailer to anyone with trailer hitch needs. 163620

The hitch came in just a few days, UPS delivered it in great condition. I installed it in about an hour and a half with the help of a friend. Installation was straight forward. Watch the online videos and review the I-sheets. It doesn't get much easier. I haven't pulled a trailer with it yet but judging by the design it will work better than expected. I purchased this on the recommendation of 2 friends that use this system with the Companion Fifth Wheel. It is so much easier to remove the Companion than my previous hitch and have a completely unobstructed pick up bed to use. MADE IN THE USA...! What more could you want? 345353

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


As with all product I've have used from B&W, this one excels. It's a heavy beast, and is shipped as a 2 piece shipment. Assembly took about 30-40 minutes. I watched a YouTube video or 3 before it arrived, so I knew what to expect. Not much to it really. I have pulled gooseneck, but never a 5th wheel. Open the jaw with the lever and back up after getting your trailer in the ballpark with height. The jaws closed by themselves. Attach your wire harness, your breakaway cable and put the cotter pin in the handle. It pulled ultra smooth, and didn't make any sounds or clunks with my setup. Very happy customer. 337059

Review from a similar B and W Companion in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


My new hitch arrived on time as promised. Installation was fast and simple - a couple of minor adjustments to make sure the lock down latches lined up with the RAM factory set up and I was ready to tow. The process to hook and unhook is fast and easy. The jaws lock securely and I don't feel any movement of the king pin in the hitch when i am towing. I'm towing a 38.5' Grand Design toy hauler with a 2015 Ram 3500 diesel. When I am not using the hitch it stays installed and I have a BakFlip tonneau cover that hides the hitch and other contents of the truck bed. The whole set up is perfect for me! 261752

Well built product. Easy to follow instructions. Installation was easy with help of my son-in-law. Would highly recommend that you have assistance, with the installation because of the weight. We did have to make some minor adjustments to get latch assemblies to line up with factory installed 5th wheel prep. But the instruction covered how to in the installation instructions. Received on Friday afternoon installed Saturday, then removed to have bed liner sprayed in on Tuesday. Great product made in a America which I appreciate as well we need to support American Companies! 226496

I picked this up because I wanted to get rid of the goose-neck that the previous owner had put on my 5th wheel camper and go back to towing with the kingpin. I already had a B&W turnover ball installed in my truck so this hitch made a lot of sense to buy. The hitch goes in fairly easy, but be warned it is quite heavy. I can manage it by myself but feel much better having someone help my get it in the truck. It tows great and it very well built. I would highly recommend it to anyone that has a turnover ball and does not want to drill a bunch of holes in the bed of their truck. 431357

I recently purchased a used '08 Ford F-350 with a B&S turnover gooseneck hitch. I wanted to use a Reese 16k hitch that I already own and put it in this truck without doing the typical bed rails to attach the fifth wheel hitch. I contacted Etrailer and they quickly identified the Curt X5 adapter to solve my issue. Ordered new adapter and in 3 days I had the unit and everything fit perfectly. This is the second time I have dealt with Etrailer in the last 6 months and I continue to be impressed with all aspects of this company. I'm glad I found Etrailer 6 months ago when I was looking for trailer hub and brake parts. I knew just who to turn to with my latest needs. Thanks Etrailer! 208661

Received the Curt X5 B&W turnover ball adapter yesterday. Would have been easier to drop in with two people but I was able to do it myself. Dropped right in, and in less then 15 seconds it was dropped and locked. Saved me lots of install time on 5th wheel rails. Set my RBW lil' rocker hitch on and pulled my 10,000 lbs 32' 5th wheel across town without issue. I feel that this is probably the strongest way to go when running a 5th wheel to turnover ball adapter, and its only about $*** which is a fraction of the cost for those other weird complex adapters that side load or flex. Customer feedback was great with optimal response time on my questions. 266615

Nothing fancy, strictly utilitarian and simple. Built like a bomb shelter and shows no signs of wear. I pull a Keystone Laredo 298BH almost bi-monthly and this gives me the flexibility I need to switch hitch styles between trailers. If you need a completely flat bed for hauling then you still have it versus bolted on bed rails. Much safer than a 5er extension and doesn't void the warranty on your travel trailer if there is a failure. I shimmed mine off of the truck bed to take out the slop with 2 sections of round baler belting from a tractor supply store attached via industrial adhesive and it works beautifully. It weighs a lot so swap outs are a bit of a chore but i wouldn't want it to be built any lighter. Bravo on a great product 357271

After reading numerous favorable reviews on the goosseneck to 5th wheel adapter #16310 I decided to purchase one from etrailer.com. My entire experience has been truly outstanding. I ordered the adapter on Sunday night and Monday morning I received a phone call confirming my order and address. The order shipped on that same day and arrived on Thursday. I installed the adapter in my truck within minutes and installed my HUSKY slider hitch within minutes with absolutely no problems. I picked up my new 5th wheel and the adapter and hitch worked perfectly. I highly recommend etrailer.com and the Curt X5 Fith Wheel Adapter for B and W Square Shank Turner Ball Hitches-16310. 170741

I just wanted to say the people at etrailer are some of the best people to do business with.

Excellent product, well made and fits as it should on both sides. A device like this, to be worth making and selling, has to have certain assumptions as to fit and function. Curt has done a great job of giving the customer flexibility in fitting up. In my case the (turnover ball) pin went part way in and stuck tight. I thought that removing the rubber shims on the underside of the adapter would be too much downward movement, so, with 5th wheel hitch installed, I found some washboard road to drive on. Problem solved; pin works perfectly. By the way, I call this thing a "spider". After all it has 8 legs. 426799

This is just what I was looking for, already had Curt R5 slider hitch, put B&W hitch on new truck. Tried a gooseneck adapter, but too much flex. Went back to 5th wheel hitch. This adapter is built heavy, weighs over 100lbs by itself. I pull a 14,000lb toy hauler, with a F250 shortbed, needed the slider. I feel much safer with this product. Ordered from e.trailer, shipping was right on, only 3 days. 134542

I just purchased a used pickup that had a B&W square shank ball set up in it. I really was not looking forward to the headache of installing a rail kit, what with the drilling etc. that is required. I kept searching until I found this product. For a comparison: frame rail install with all drilling that's required, several hours; installing this, 30 seconds. It's definitely the way to go if you already have a gooseneck ball set up in your truck. I was also very impressed with how quickly the item arrived. I was expecting a week or so, instead it arrived in three days. I am very happy all the way around. 158746

Great product! Ive pulled a 42' to Hell and back not one problem. It is heavy, but it's very solid. My fifth wheel hitch fit straight in. Way cheaper than having to put rails in if you have a factory ball hitch in the bed. Its It's also nice that it's removable so you can haul furniture, or things that can't sit crooked ect.

Have a truck with a goose neck hitch but needed an adapter to haul a 5th wheel trailer. This hitch is very easy to use, fits well in my bed (truck bed is very banged up and uneven from years of demolition/ remodel work and fire wood hauling), and is quick to place and remove. The adapter lays flush enough in the truck bed that it wouldn't affect most loads or cargo (i.e. Lumber, mulch/bark, fire wood, etc.) My 5th wheel hitch (Reese) fits perfectly with the hitch. I am incredibly pleased with all aspects of this product. Worth the price for the ease of use. 262334

The X-5 is a heavy built, nicely finished adapter. It literally took me longer to open the box than to install it. I slipped it into the opening myself. I owned a Pro 15k which slipped right into the rails. I had assumed when I purchased this product (as it was advertised to fit a B&W turnover) that there was a built in offset to counter the typical 6" install towards the cab. After measuring my trailer it's appearant that a slider is now needed. It would be ausome if there was an option for an offset especially for the price. 336435

Heavy duty. But it does not drop into B & W under bed hitch far enough for the capture pin to engage the hole in the Curt adapter. I am not going to modify my spray in bed liner to solve this problem. Curt should make the hitch work without the need to modify a spray in liner. ( A larger hole in the Curt drop in shaft?) Maybe when I am able to drop the trailer onto the hitch it will engage the B & W under bed pin due to the extra weight. At this point I'm not satisfied . 345043

I recently purchased a 2015 Denali HD to pull our Rockwood 5th wheel. This truck had the B & W goose neck already installed. Instead of removing the hitch from the previous truck, I decided to try the B & W with the Curt X5 5th Wheel adapter. After reading the reviews, I was anxious to see if it fit as some said it did and others not. I ordered it on Wednesday and received it the following Monday. It was so easy to install and fit perfectly. Thanks etrailer. 424867

What a deal, much lower price then anybody else, extremely fast shipping! Just drop it in, set the hitch, good to go. When done, take out the hitch, take out the adapter and have a perfectly smooth bed for whatever. Appears to be heavily built, very solid and how much simpler can you get, drop it in the gooseneck hole, throw the lock lever and you're ready! Like everything else I've order from etrailer, top notch stuff at great prices! 420637

Excellent product, good build quality, it didn't work for me as a drop in and use it but etrailer was willing to make it right. My fifth wheel hitch bolted right in with no issues. Excellent how all pieces can be removed leaving a flat bed surface. Do not expect this to fit in 2017 F250 with B&W turnover ball (bwgnrk1117) as it will not lock in place since the ridges in the truck bed are different height than previous year trucks. 389696

I was wondering if you sold a 2" spacer kit # 46250 for a ts3 Trailer saver hitch? If so how much is it. Rubber Pads were put on backwards so the stuck to the box instead of hitch. can I get 4 pads? Thanks Richard C.Holt 230749

Etrailer did a great job of shipping very very fast received in just three days. The X5 it's built very sturdy and it is very heavy it seems to be very strong. The only issue that could be with this product is when you use it with a B&W hitch it seems to set it a little deeper in the bed maybe about 6 inches behind Center axle. If you don't have a slider hitch this could be a problem 245646

Great product and easy to install. etrailer staff was great. Shipping was fast. One note: if your goose neck pin doesn't fully engage due to a spray in bedliner, connect up to your trailer and the weight of the trailer should allow the pin to fully engage. After my first trip the adapter settled enough and the pin engages easily without the trailer weight. 230906

Received product very quickly within 4 days with the free shipping option. The adapter dropped right in. The only issue I had is two of the small rubber pads came off the bottom of the adapter and we're stuck to the cardboard so in useable. I put the 5th wheel hitch on the rails and everything lined up except the two pins on the cab side will have to be hammered in. 209303

I shopped around looking for a better price but etrailer.com beat them all. Top it off with free shipping and I couldn't pass up the deal any longer. The item was delivered promptly for free at the lowest price on the net. I'm very happy with my etrailer.com purchase and I will shop them again if I need anything else for my truck. 242203

Shank was too long. It bottomed out in the gooseneck hole an inch and a half at least before the rails touched the linex. Some modification was needed to make it work. Can't just drop it in and go. Glad I wasn't going camping the week it was delivered! Looks well built and the idea is good. Just needs to fit as advertised! 200398

Great product, fits perfectly and performs well. I have the B&W turn over ball hitch and considered the B&W 3500 5th wheel. I bought this instead, about $500 less expensive and used my existing 5th wheel hitch. No issues and saved the money. Caution lifting this piece, it is over 100lbs, highly recommend using two people. 196913

Have not towed with it yet, but was very excited when I saw the quality of the adapter. Really pulled through for me on the two day shipping guaranteed. I just found out my Husky 5th wheel sliding hitch does not fit. Ouch! Can't knock the set up! I think, I will just get a different 5th wheel hitch. Thanks etrailer! 192704

This is so much better than having the rails permanently in my truck. The installation went well. Having to cut the heat shield is one of those moments on a brand new truck but it needs to be done. I recommend getting a plug for the turnover ball. Winter salt will not be kind to the ball in the turned down position. 290262

The X5 just arrived. I was very surprised that Curt spared nothing on building this. Talk about solid. Took 3 of us to set it in the back of the truck. I'm gonna love it. I can have my sturdy hitch and when not hauling, my clean truck bed. 230512

Great product, had it for about a year. I leave it in the truck all the time. It's very heavy. No complaints. I think if I used the turnover ball for gooseneck I would install rails. My B&W is a bit rusty and hard to switch out. 344745

Excellent Product. Excellent Service. Was concerned if it would be ridged enough , but Pulling 41' Camper and it fit beautifully into hideaway ball, and I cannot tell any difference with this or normal bed rails. 281674

The shank slides right in. The thing I noticed is there is small rubber bumpers on the bottom of the rails but they don't actually touch the bed. If I had a spray on liner it would probably ride on there better 228024

This product is exactly what I needed to allow me to haul my fifth wheel. The product arrived in 3 days, which allowed for me to focus on vacation whether then to worry about my product arriving. Thanks again. 43174

Some of the best money we've spent in a long time! Fits the B&W Hitch and our Fifth Wheel plate perfectly! When we don't use it we pull it out and have a flat bed in our truck. Awesome - thank you so much!! 284910

Same issue as everyone else. Spray in bed liner made for a hard way to go. Never the less it is in and working will find out more after the maiden voyage next weekend. Already suggested it to a friend. 403344

It is a great investment. I did not want to put the rails in my truck and this was the answer to utilize my gooseneck set up for my fifth wheel. It also provides a lot of room in the bed of my truck 339513

Do you have a question about this Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters?


  • What are the Differences Between Hitches 16310 and V70881
  • According to my contact at Curt, the X5 does not require a support kit because it has the rails and attachments needed as part of the assembly. It sits flush with the bed so it does not need a separate subkit because the subkit is already installed. Also the rails on the Curt X5 Fifth Wheel Adapter for B&W Square Shank Turnover Ball Hitches, # 16310, have more openings for more 5th wheel installation options than the Valley B&W Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Hitch Adapter Plate, # V70881.
