Today we're going to taking a look at the BMW OEM fifth wheel hitch with slider for Chevy or GMC towing prep package. Part number BWRVK3770. Here's what our fifth wheel with slider looks like when it's fully installed. Since we have a short bed truck it's going allow us to tow a fifth wheel trailer and have enough clearance to make those turns without having to worry about making contact with our cab. If we come to the handle right here, start in a locked position, we can rotate it to the unlocked position. Then we're going to have 12 inches of travel so the fifth wheel can go farther back towards the tailgate, we can make our turn. Then once we straighten out, we can again, come to the handle, unlock it and it'll slide back into the towing position.


B and W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch with Slider Installation - 2017 GMC Sierra 3500

Today on our 2017 GMC Sierra 3500, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the B&W Companion OEM Fifth Wheel with Slider for Chevy and GMC Towing Prep Package, part number BWRVK3770. Here's what our fifth wheel with slider looks like when it's fully installed. And since we have a short-bed truck, it's going to allow us to tow a fifth-wheel trailer. And have enough clearance to make those turns, without having to worry about making contact with our cab. If we come to the handle right here, start in the lock position, and we can rotate it to the unlock position. Then we're going to have 12 inches of travel so the fifth wheel can go farther back towards the tailgate. We can make our turn, and then once we straighten out, we can again come to the handle, unlock it, and it'll slide back into the towing position. Now this fifth wheel slider is designed to work with the GM and Chevrolet factory prep package, and that's what these handles here are. It's just going to sit in and lock into place.


B and W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the B&W Patriot fifth wheel trailer hitch with slider. With an 18,000 pound capacity, the part number is BWRVK3270. Now the need for a sliding system like the Patriot is going to come up when you're trying to haul a camper with a short bed truck. It's just not feasible to navigate around with the limited maneuverability you'll have before they camper wants to make contact with the cab of the truck. With the Patriot system, it's able to move a full 12" from the towing position back into the maneuvering position. This is going to allow us the extra room we need from the front of the camper to the rear of our cab to help us navigate through the campsites, parking lots, things like that. When it's time to haul back down the road, release that lever once again.


B and W Fifth Wheel BWRVK3770 Review

Today, I'm going to take a look at the B&W Companion Dual Jaw OEM Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with the slider for Chevrolet and GMC towing prep packages. This has a 20,000 pound weight capacity. This is a custom fit part that is designed to fit the 2016 and newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks with the six and a half foot bed and the factory rail kit. This fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed, so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. Again, it's designed to work with the factory installed fifth wheel towing prep packages from Chevrolet or GMC. The built in slider that provides the 12 inches of front to back clearance, which is required for your short bed truck to turn safely at slow speeds. It is a rail free design, so it allows for full access to your truck bed when the hitch is removed. The head on this uses the one inch thick dual jaws to provide a nice 360 degree jaw to king pin contact. Because of that, it will give less rattle, more security, than the slide bar jaws. The handle right here is a cam action latching handle, helps prevent any binding.


Curt Fifth Wheel C16266 Review

Today we're going to look at the Curt Q25 Dual Jaw Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with the rails and the universal installation kit. Has a 25,000-pound weight capacity. Now, this fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. This does use the two jaw locking system here, which provides a nice 360-degree jaw to kingpin contact because that'll give you less rattle, more security than the slide-bar models. This head also uses a unique spherical axial bearing which will allow easy pivoting of the hitch head, and the nice thing is it gives you a smooth 360-degree movement, not just the front to back or side to side tilting. Also gives you built-in cushioning to help absorb any road shock. There are three lube points here with easy-to-access grease circ fittings.

It's going to mount using our base rails here. It's going to allow us to tow a fifth wheel trailer. This is a six foot bed truck and if you ever towed a fifth wheel with a short bed truck, you know that it comes in handy to have a slider like we have here whenever you're making tight turns. We come to this handle and we pull out, we can turn it and our fifth wheel is going to slide back 12 inches to give us extra clearance so we don't have to worry about our fifth wheel trailer hitting our cab. The slider is a non binding slider, so no matter what angle you're pulling your trailer at, it's going to be able to slide freely back and forth.

This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty Trucks with the factory installed towing prep package and, on a custom fit part, I always like to recommend that you go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year, model of vehicle and it'll show you if this will work for your application. Now, this fifth wheel hitch will mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. It is designed to work with the factory installed fifth wheel towing prep package from Ford. Has this nice built-in slider here which will provide clearance, give you 12 inches front to back which is required for your sharp bed truck to turn safely at slow speeds. It is a nice rail-free design, allows for full access to your truck bed when it is removed from the truck. Up on the hitch head here, it has the one inch thick dual jaws which will provide a nice 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact.

  • Can A Fifth Wheel Trailer Be Used with a Ford F-150 Supercrew 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • You may be able to use a fifth wheel, depending on the width of the trailer. Since the 5-1/2 foot bed is so short, in turning the fifth wheel trailer can end up making contact with the cab of the truck resulting in damage. The Sidewinder is essentially a hitch extender that will provide enough clearance for some fifth wheel trailers to be towed behind 5-1/2 bed trucks. You will need to take some measurements on the truck and the width of the fifth wheel trailer and calculate if you would...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Ford F-350 with Factory Prep Package and Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • Since the trailer comes with the Reese Revolution pin box you will need a fixed hitch, not a slider, and a custom wedge to match the hitch. The wedge prevents the trailer from turning at the hitch so that it turns 22 inches further back allowing you to make tight turns without needing a slider. For a hitch that fits directly into the factory prep package on Ford trucks including your 2017 F-350 I recommend the Reese Elite hitch # RP30142. And for a custom wedge use # SWW-01.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with RamBox and 6-Foot Bed
  • A short bed truck by itself can pose a challenge for 5th wheel towing due to the limited front-to-back clearance between the truck cab and the trailer's overhang. When we add the Rambox feature we also add another complication: reduced side-to-side clearance. Hitch makers like Reese, Curt and B&W discourage use of 5th wheels in such trucks; that said, there are those that have satisfactorily installed 5th wheels anyway. The best solution for the turning clearance problem in such trucks...

  • Adapter for Ford Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package for Use with a Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • The Reese adapter you are looking for to use a standard above the bed 5th wheel hitch with the Ford factory under bed system is # RP30156. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Make sure that your Valley hitch mounting tabs are 22 inches on center front to back. The side to side measurement on center should be either 29 inches or 20-1/2 inches. Take a look at the picture I have included as an example of the side to side measurement.

  • Can Fifth Wheel Bed Rails Be Removed When Hitch is Not Being Used
  • When the Reese 5th wheel hitch is removed from the bed rails, the rails will remain in the truck bed. Once the rails are installed by bolting them through the bed to the frame brackets and tightened to their specified torque, they need to remain in place. Removing the bed rails repeatedly would cause undue stress on the mounting hardware thus weakening it, which is why the hardware is rated for a one-time use only. Using the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit, part...
