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!!!!!!!! I recommend this hitch to anyone. Thanks 394645

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

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


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

We have been fairly pleased with the quality of the hitch. I end up switching back and forth between it and a gooseneck hitch and the other tube is heavier and shows less signs of scaring from the set screws/bolts, eventually I may have to sand down the ridges to get it in and out of the tube. 364744

Exactly as advertised. We cut 2" off the end to allow the king pin to seat as high as the trailer would allow for level towing. A little black paint and it looks like it is OE. Definitely makes hooking up easier and prevents having to remove the fifth wheel hitch to use our gooseneck trailer. 172842

did this adapter work on your semi tractor without welding on a bigger plate?You used it just the way I see it? I would use it on my semi if there is no problems.It looks to small for a tractor.

The kingpin, as you probably know, is the same size. Whether or not the plate will cause problems will have to be checked. The plate has a circumfrence of about 25-1/4 inches, a diameter of a hair over 8 inches.
