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

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

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

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

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

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

The Product installed with no problem. I just got back from a 900 mi. round trip to Utah. I was in elevations from 1000 ft above sea level to 9000 ft. above sea level. I It hooks up very easy and is very good compared the my old system. I would have given it a Excellent except that it (rotated) turned about 1/4 of an inch.on the king pin as you can see on the Photos. I will be drilling holes in the King Pin Extension and putting in the four bolts before I take it out again. I was suprised that I did not receive the optional bolts nor was I asked if I wanted them. .I did order on line so I accept responsibility for it. At no time did I feel any safty issues. I had replaced the suspension on my trailer with the easy ride system and combined with your Convert-A-Ball Cushioned System my wife said there was a huge emprovement and I also felt a big difference it the Truck. It is a well engineered product and my raiting will go to Excellent after I put in the four Bolts. You can send me the bolts or I will get my own. Attached are some photos of my Truck and Trailer.

How do you plan on installing the 4 additional bolts?

-- comment by: Carlos G - 07/27/2014

In the installation instructions Convert-A-Ball discusses the optional installation of additional bolts. However, these bolts are available only for the customer to contact the manfucturer, and are not sold individually. To gain access this is usually done by disassembling the pin box, or by drilling access holes in the plate, but this all depends on the configuration of your pin box, and if this adapter is intended to be a temporary or a permanent solution.

I did as I said I would do and I drilled four hole in the pin box and installed four bolts. I feel much more confident in the system. I am very happy with it at this time. To drill the holes I removed the pin box and used the adapter for a pattern, I then drilled the holes by hand. 1/2 in Drill

Bought a truck with a heavy duty gooseneck hitch. Found a fifth wheel we wanted to buy. I ordered the CAB-C5G with 3 day shipping. It was here in 3 days! The unit was very heavy and the packaging was very well done. I read the instructions and gathered up the tools needed for the installation. We drove about 125 miles with it still in the box not knowing exactly what was going to happen. The seller and I took about a half hour to install it on the trailer and a few more minutes to adjust it in his driveway. Once we got it out on the road we noticed the trailer was front high. We took about 20 more minutes in a parking lot to make the final adjustments. My truck is a 2011 GMC 3500 single wheel so it is pretty high. On the road we experienced no problems on the 125 mile trip home. I was a little skeptical about how this would feel going down the road but after a little while we were doing the speed limit at 70 mph on route 93 South in NH coming out of VT. We stopped after 50 miles or so to check the torque on the bolts and it was fine. This adapter was supposed to be a short term fix until I could figure out a fifth wheel setup with the given hitch, but I think I just may like this on a longer term. With the fold over ball, I can use the bed of the truck without having to remove a big heavy hitch. This adapter is HEAVY DUTY, emphasis on heavy! Hooking up you have to have the trailer a little higher than normal to clear the ball height. Also yo do not have the luxury of the 5th wheel to guide you in if you're a little off. Mostly pros with this unit, can't come up with any cons. Great product and I would recommend it. 377549

I don't often write reviews, practically never. But this one deserves one. So, I didn't buy it that you could use this adapter without bolting it to the trailer. Just a sleeve around the king pin and the hitch around the sleeve. Didn't buy it. But, they guarantee it to hold as long as you install it to their specks. So I did. Here's how the story goes. I was backing my camper into a garage and forgot to make sure the door was all the way up. You can see where this is going. I hit the door. Rolled out from under the door and discussed with myself, inspected the damage. This is not the impressive part. So distracted with what I've just done, I get everything straight and continue. Now this next part is important, I drive a dually pushing out just under 700hp. I can do doughnuts or sit and roast the tires. Not that I do, but I can. I like my stuff to last. I say that so that you don't brush off the impressive part. Once I got my camper into the garage I put my truck into first and sat there with my foot on the clutch thinking about the damage I'd just done and, absent mindedly, popped the clutch. Now granny gear has enough torque to slow the rotation of the earth, and I just unleashed it onto an unbolted hitch holding my camper above my truck. It snapped so hard that it slammed my head into my seat and broke off some small shavings in my rear end. Not my butt, the rear end of my drivetrain. But, the hitch held!!! Upon inspection nothing moved! Other than flipping my truck over, I don't know how to put anymore strain on it than that. Thank you so much for building a quality product!!! I'm sold! What just cost me a few hundred dollars in parts, broken ac and garage door, could have been thousands. Thanks again. Truly, thank you. 176431

Installation is a breeze. I'm a short but stocky guy so installing it by myself wasn't hard at all. I just lowered the trailer to where I had enough leverage to hold the adapter up and be able to tighten the bolts down with the other hand. Torqued everything down to spec and was on the road in no time. Pulled off after 50 miles and retorqued everything as any good transporter does. This is where my review gets bad. The bolts that hold the adapter to the kingpin couple failed. They crushed on the ends and damaged the threads. Keep in mind, I followed the torque specs TWICE. I didn't have the twisting issues that others have had. It took me 30 min with a pull bar and a piece of pipe to get the bolts backed off enough to get the adapter off the kingpin coupler. Today I spent 30 min working ONE bolt completely out of the adapter and this is what I found. I am in contact with etrailer to get it resolved. The bolts and the inner threads are damaged. Hopefully this is just a lemon and I will get a replacement hassle free. Other than this, this is a great design and towed well. 233183

Great product but the bolt crushing problem is a major one that I am working directly with Convert-a-ball to get fixed. They admit it is on their end and we are working on

I want to thank Etrailer for the great customer service I received. Emily H, was very helpful in the process of my purchase. The c5g _1216 converter ball adapter was a very well made and sturdy product. And will handle the 39ft toyhauler that I have it installed on. The installation was very easy and simple. So thanks again Etrailer for a great product and fast delivery, and great customer service. Walter, R 233926


Comments

When I first received it I thought it would work out. But after using it for a couple of months, I had to remove it. The ride quality was terrible and the jerky ride while towing was unbearable. Plus the additional stress it put on the frame of my fifth wheel trailer over time would cause even more problems. So I removed it and installed a Curt fifth wheel hitch and now the ride is much better and smoother with no jerkiness. Would not recommend this adapter at all.

I recently bought a 36ft 5th wheel toy hauler and needed a way to pull it, we didn't really want to install a 5th wheel hitch because we didn't want the extra holes in the bed of the truck so we bought this. I was nervous at first but this hitch adapter work very well. It mounted to the 5th wheel easily and sat right on the gooseneck ball that came built into our truck. It also disconnected from the truck with ease. We have left it hooked onto the camper for now for quick movement if needed. 312825

This deal that I bought.... Works.. I like this one the best. I look at the other goose neck cuppler that others were trying to sell me. I like how it was easy to just bolt it on the king pin. I own a 2500 Dodge Ram it sets high. And the travel trailer sets low, so all I did was set the springs on top of the axels. Problem solved. We went to Florida to get this travel trailer and where I live in Tennessee and the route we took home,, well we mist the one road and ended up on the dragon tail (Hy 129 ) the twisting and turning the up and down that this road has to offer. Made it to Duck Town where we pick up Hy 68 north and the twisting and turning that this road has to offer before we made it home in Madisonville Tn.. The cuppler didn't loosen up. No wiggles or wobbles. I don't know how many foot pounds of what ever to tighten them bolts to... Because I couldn't read the instructions.... The shippers didn't put the instructions in its own pack nor in a safe place in the cuppler.. The video was a god sent. And I just used cheater bar on the wrench. Problem solved. I'm gonna recheck the bolts just to be sure before we take a trip. But I'm sure there tight. And I'll send you guys a note if I mess up.. But that cuppler is on there and I gonna drill out the pin box and bolt the cuppler to the pin box just for a pice of mine.. Legrand B 288187

the hitch arrived in 3 business days as promised via UPS. It weighing over 70 pounds I expected the cardboard box to be thrashed. The box arrived in perfect shape, great job on packaging . I immediately ran out and and began installing it on my trailer. Things went terrible, I had the white line on the collar facing forward per the video and the instructions; it just wasn't lining up when I slipped the hitch up. Plus it would not go up and seat to the king pin plate. I called customer service and they were going to have a technician call me. I started taking the collar off and that's when I discovered I had installed it upside down?? I flipped it over reinstalled it and the rest of the installation went perfect as per the instructions. If I had not of made that error the whole thing would have only taken about 15 minutes. I felt kinda stupid because the collar is stamped this side up and has an arrow. None the less I called customer service back and told them of my error and cancelled the technician callback request. Great product, love the additional bed space I gained by going to the turnover ball with the etrailer adapter. 251555

We bought a 2001, 29' Keystone Montana 5th wheel,pulled by a 2008, F-450 with a gooseneck ball in the bed. I researched between the typical 5th wheel mount and the gooseneck conversion. YOUR videos and website gave me the most information, was clear even for a newbe like me and sealed the deal. The dealership that I purchased the 5th wheel from had never heard of this product and wanted to charge me about $125 installation for theirs because of the need to drill and weld. I told them about your product, gave them the You Tube and etrailer.com link. I bought yours and had it delivered to my house. The dealer was amazed at the ease of putting the unit on the 5th Wheel hitch and didn't charge me anything for the labor. I think they will be ordering product from you! Anyway, we have used it for only 2 weeks, it seems perfect in every way. Thank you so much for the ease of ordering, understandable videos, great website and order followup. The only suggestion I would have is to explain the difference in purchasing an offset unit vs. straight (like the one I bought) I was a bit jumpy about not knowing specifically which one I needed and why. Thanks for the great work, I am extremely pleased and I have been telling everyone about your company!!! 83825

Youd only need the offset if your truck was a short bed.

I bought a newer pickup that had a ball in the bed of the pickup. I purchased your convert-a-ball adapter, and used it last weekend for the first time. I was very pleased with the ease of installing it. my wife and I did it ourselves. It worked perfect. I feel very safe pulling our heavy rv, and using the convert-a-ball. Thanks for your great invention. It was as good as advertised, and more. 84930

We have had our convert a ball hltch for over a year,and have pulled with it thousands of miles. It has worked well, with no problems at all. We have gotten more than our moneys worth. thanks.

Researched several products similar to this and this was the best. Received it in a few days. Exactly what I needed for my camper. Installation was easy. YouTube video was very helpful. Will recommend to anybody. 35775

what is distance from rear bumper and lower front of fifth wheel. also it looks like you ,are at a skew with your adapter, is that with all the weight lowered on to the truck. if not how well does it tow like that.

The space between is about 2-1/2 feet. Plenty of room. That is how my hitch sets fully, its mostly due to me running 315s on my tires. But Ive pulled it all around the south and even up to the Great Lakes. Never once had a problem

Good it was what I orderd just disapointed that UPS did not deliver it to my address, and not to my neighbor across the street. I was expecting the item on Friday and it arrived Thursday thanks 105988

it has worked wonderful for us. We got a pickup that can now haul both the camper and the boat So the hitch will be a great asset.It was easy to install and fit live a glove.Only downfall was UPS delivered it to our neighbors house and it took both of us to carry it to my house.

To be honest this adapter scared the heck out of me as I thought it wouldn't hold up and I was going to lose the trailer. I couldn't see how this adapter was as good or better than my standard 5th wheel hitch in my truck. However I was pleasantly surprised and proven wrong. We bought it because we were taking my father's truck , (Which was equipped to tow a goose-neck trailer), on a fishing trip that extended from Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana with the return back through Montana, Idaho and my home in Nevada. We had one problem and that was when we I tried to remove the adapter so I can tow it with my truck and standard 5th wheel hitch. It took me an hour to remove it with a lot of effort. I was amazed that it was so secure it had seemed to become part of the trailer. Since then I put the adapter back on and abandoned my traditional 5th wheel hitch. I was sold on this item. You cannot go wrong if you are shopping for such an adapter. 390060

I just wanted to tell the folks at etrailer how great of an experance I had ordering from them. I ordered a 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter. From the time the phone rang until Wayne had taken my order was less than 2 minutes. These people know their stuff and the price was great. The install was flawless, fit perfect. I was kept informed several times by e mail what the status of my order was. My order came a day early even during a holiday week. I am sure glad to have some room in my p/u bed while pulling my 5th wheel. Thanks Wayne and thanks etrailer 133617

This product was a great way to keep the bed of my truck clear by using my flip up goose neck ball to pull my new 5th wheel. I just got back from my first trip pulling through Washington, Oregon, and Idaho and it pulled smooth and great! I had conditions from very hilly two lane roads with 6% slopes to 75mph interstates. I do have to say that the included release lever (the one you can use from the side of the truck) doesnt make any difference because you still have to climb into the truck to remove the chains. Also my truck is a F250 which sits stock a little taller and in the lowest (12") position the trailer rides at an angle up to the truck bed (photo)so a good idea to measure closely before purchase. 85769

Installed adaptor 2 weeks ago to our 12000lb 37' toyhauler. You are going to need assistance as this thing is fairly heavy and awkward to handle. With the help of my 13yr old son and his friend they held it in place while I tightened the square headed bolts, adjusted to lowest position, torqued everything down, backed up the truck and hooked er up. Towing with this was sweet and once the trailer is disconnected all that remains in the truck bed is a 2 5/16" ball. I greased the ball before hooking up too. I also liked the ability to put a padlock on it in the closed position when not connected to trailer. Overall I am very pleased. Special thanks go out to Madison for emailing me the installation instructions since I either lost them or never recieved them, either way she emailed them to me very quickly. E Trailer is a great company with great staff!! Thanks and God bless. 316816

We ordered this and received it in 3 days. My husband and I installed it ourselves on a 1994 32 ft Coachman fifth wheel camper weighing 10,000 #s. The installation was just as the video showed. It is a really heavy and well made hitch. We are very pleased so far. It pulled just fine with our F350 crewcab duelly diesel. 149848

We've only used it for a short vacation so far, but it's worked great. It is not difficult to mount - just need a large crescent wrench basically and an allen wrench. And it comes off easily also. A good way to transition from a standard 5th-wheel to a gooseneck and have the bed free. Also, a gooseneck has the advantage of allowing more lateral twist in parking, which we need where we live, with a steep road and sharp curving driveway. The standard 5th wheel hitch was placing too much strain on our pin and the beams it's welded to, and this gooseneck solves the problem, without having to remove the 5th wheel pin. We can interchange in just a matter of about 30 minutes and have either a gooseneck or a 5th wheel depending on what we prefer. We have it on the shortest length possible, and it's still a little higher than ideal, but not bad. 256890

Very easy to install with a torque wrench and the proper socket. A 32 point works best for the "square head" bolt. I do wish they would go to a normal hex head. I have pulled the trailer from San Antonio to the West coast multiple times and the adapter has performed perfectly with no slipping issues or anything. One thing I really like is the adjustable height. Once you adjust for your particular vehicle height you are always right on the hitch contact point with the trailer pulling level. I have never had to re-level the trailer after the initial hitch connection. Product has worked beyond my expectations. One thing I would recommend is that the instructions are more clear on the amount of torque required for each set of bolts. I had to call the manufacturer to find out how much torque to apply. 356732

by: Dave L.11/21/2016


I received your product and installed it on my trailer. I was impressed with the construction and felt confident it would do the job. However, I was not impressed by the square head bolt design. For one thing, you cannot just go to Home Depot, Sears, or Harbor Freight and buy a socket to fit the square head bolt. I could find a socket, but it would have to be ordered on line and I couldn't wait. Especially if you require the bolt to be torqued. I ended up replacing the bolts with regular hex head bolts. I am assuming your square head bolts are a grade 5. If they are not, I would hope you let me know before I start towing my trailer. My suggestion is to either replace your bolts with hex head bolts, or include a socket that fits your square head bolt. 318524

Really happy with my purchase i made and a good investment. I recieved the fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter on time and next day i installed it on my fifth wheel trailer and it was very easy to do it. Instructions were plain and simple. If you dont have a buddy to help hold the adapter for you, i suggest you use a jack with a short 2x6 board to raise it in to position and begin tightneing the bolts. You do this by backing up your truck and you set the jack on the bed. I had no help so i worked with what i had... After installing it, and re inspecting everything, i took the trailer for a test drive on the dirt road and then on the paved road and it worked grea. Smooth ride, and very simple to lock and un lock the adapter from the ball. 168319

Set up was as simple as advertised. I was able to do it by myself. Only problem I had is the new 2013 Ram 3500's, the 5th Wheel/Gooseneck factory pre-installed tow package the safety chains are too short. I will have to buy some new chains to fit. I have not towed with it yet, but will post another review after I do. 89036

Rick TDoes your RV or trailer ride level with the roadway? Are the rims on your rig 18?Im concerned about the adapter making the RV ride too high in the front. Dave

Remember this adapter is adjustable, with a range of 12-16 inches. To determine if it will work for your right you can take a quick measurement. On a flat surface, park the 5th Wheel trailer and use the landing gear to get it level. Back the truck under it and measure from the top of the ball to the pin box base, the flat surface where the king pin is welded to. As long as that measurement falls within that range, you can setup the adapter to work with your rig.

Little late to comment but, for new users as well as 2013 Ram owners, I have a 2013 Ram dually with the adapter that I hook to a Keystone Montana and the chains are not too short. In fact, I have enough extra chain that I have to loop them through.

When the package arrived, I set to opening it, (very well packed). Everything that I ordered was there. Got the Gooseneck adapter figured out and got the kingpin collar installed. After I moved the truck so that I could place the adapter under the fifth wheel assembly the set up was very simple. Setting up the ball and the adapter took me about 1.5 hours to complete. Very good equipment. Would recommend to anyone that wanted to have the versatility in towing options. Sorry, no photos. The reason I went this way was due to the cost of a fifth wheel hitch for the 2016 Ram 3500/ with the pucks per-set in the bed and on the frame this worked out to be a little less expensive to do. 333129

I bought this hitch for my fifth wheel travel trailer. My wife and I did the installation in about 45 minutes. The adapted hitch works great. I pull the trailer with a 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab, so the short bed was a concern when making tight turns and hitting truck cab. I bought the B&W 4" offset hitch, and it works great. The trailer pulls very well, and I haven't had any turning issues. I've pulled the trailer almost 3,000 miles, and the hitch hasn't given me any trouble. I torqued all the bolts as recommended during installation. I check them periodically, and they are still tight. This is a great hitch. 249584

The gooseneck adapter was very easy to install and works and hauls well. I prefer to haul my fifth wheel with this adapter vs. a fifth wheel plate so I have less holes in my bed and my bed is flat. I have noticed my 2016 Chevy 2500HD rides rougher when hauling. I would recommend this product to someone that wants a cleaner bed and does not want to keep moving their fifth wheel plate in and out. 276832

I found the installation to be simple, straight forward and easy. I did this all by myself, but with an extra set of hands it would have been easier on me. I mounted this on a 27FT Laradeo which is going to be pulled by my Dodge Diesel Truck that has a flat bed. The Covert A Ball is a better built Hitch than other hitch adapters that I looked at. I am glad I made the decision I made, purchasing this from e-trailer. I live way out in Idaho and I would like to compliment e-trailer on the incredible fast service. I received my hitch several days faster than expected. Thank You! 303633

So long as the system is installed properly, the collar that slides over the pin and the adapater itself will not separate from the pin. The aditional bolt kit is not needed, but can be added if desired. The instructions included with the adapter have information on how to get the bolt kit.

I AM VERRY HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT. DANA help me out very much with my order. This is my second hitch, i let the first one go with the old camper. only because i hated to see the new owner weld the cheap junk he brong over for his truck, also it didnt have a cushion. if you dont get the cushion your camper will beat you to death. i also love the idea that i can snap this on in a few min and go. i did drill and bolt my last one after a while only for extra security, so to say i will do this one also.

I ordered CAB-C5G hitch adapter on Sunday and was surprised that some one answered the phone when I called. I received the CAB-C5G adapter hitch on Wednesday and was again surprised but happy to get it that fast! It took very little time to install it on my 30 foot Puma Toy Hauler and it pulls great! I had bought a weld on hitch for another camper a few years ago and left it on the camper when I sold it. I can now keep my hitch adapter when and if I trade this camper for another one. I use the same truck for all my trailers and it's a gooseneck ball. 153635

Easy installation. Have only used it once so far to go about 400 miles rount trip up and down mountains and in some sand dunes. Didn't have any issues at all but I did notice some "jerking" when your truck is shifting gears. I have a 30ft toy hauler and it was full with toys so I just attributed it to the weight of the trailer pushing me forward while the truck was shifting and then the truck tugging back right after it shifts. It's very subtle but was enough for me to notice. Not sure if this is normal or just my setup... 214105

Excellent experience from Web search to product received. The adapter is exactly as explained on the site. Well built and easy to install. Following the instructions, I had it installed in 20 minutes. If you need a torque wrench, I recommend the 1/2 drive from [local retailer]. $19. Also make sure to get the large Allen wrench. Not sure of the Allen size but it's large. As for the jam nuts, get a large adjustable wrench as well. Like a 16" handle and 1 1/4" jaw. 356204

I have 2 gooseneck trailers and a 5th wheel camper. Removing my 5th wheel adapter plate from truck was back breaking. This conversion was a cheeper alternative than buying a B&W companion hitch. Has made life much easier. My 5th wheel is an older model and heavy built. I have no concerns of added stress on tounge/frame. If i had a new model i would consider a B&W companion hitch. For my application i am 100% satisfied with its function, ease of installation and value. 343966

Great product and fantastic customer service. Installed in a light rain and was very quick and easy. Certainly does everything advertised. I find connecting more difficult than the fifth wheel. I also find that there is much more truck to trailer flex when I go off road. Some contact has happened. Pulling does not seem any different. I will be going back to the B&W companion for my personal use but that in not a reflection of this product - Four stars Jerry 327695

This was a clean and simple design that is easy to install. The video and instruction sheet made the install easy. Once installed, the unit made hook up and towing easy. The frustrating part about this is the use of square head bolts. They require the use of a crowfoot wrench to adapt to a torque wrench. These are not easy to find, and they are relatively expensive. Manufacture the bolts with hex heads instead so that a standard 1" socket can be used. 128798

I have been very happy with this adapter. Very easy to connect to the king pin of my 5th wheel camper. May need an extras pair of hands though because of the weight you are having to hold and try to tighten at the same time. I was nervous at first just tightening the Allen bolts to hold the adapter on but Onece i had it connected it is not going to come off, I have pulled my camper many times and have not noticed any movement at all. 395535

The idea is great , to have the convenience of not having to use a fifth wheel. But after I had installed it I took the hitch to check the collar that goes around the fifth wheel hitch and it was loose. All of the screws were tighten per instructions. The bolts that attached the large part to the collar were very difficult to loosen. I have went back to my B&W fifth wheel set up. Sure wish it had worked out. 382777

This is a well made product and if you follow the instructions and watch the video it is really simple to install. I enjoy not having to switch between a conventional fifth wheel and gooseneck ball when I need to use either one. I have had no problems with the adapter and have towed with it a lot of distance. I would recommend this to anyone who does not want to give up convenience or space in their truck bed. 405349

So far so good. Got the adapter as scheduled and installed it in about 30 minutes with the help of a friend and a pipe jackstand (just so I didn't have to hold it up the whole time. Haven't had a chance to road test it just yet, but it appears to be an extremely well built solution to not having the bed of my pickup full of a fifth wheel hitch. I'll try to update after I pull with it for a few hundred miles. 161684
