Expert Answers about B And W

  • Easily Removable Fifth Wheel Hitch that Leaves Truck Bed Unobstructed
  • The Companion hitch part # BWRVK3500 is an easily removable hitch that will give you great access to the truck bed when not installed. You will need to have a B and W Turnover gooseneck hitch installed in your truck bed to use this hitch. Most fifth wheel hitches will require the installation of rails in the bed of the truck that will obstruct the bed slightly when a hitch isn't there, but the Companion will give you a totally empty truck bed. Feel free to email me back with your...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • The B and W part # BWRVK3600 will be your best option. Companion hitches are basically the nicest hitches available as you know so I would not recommend a Curt over it. Realistically your rear suspension will sag slightly to allow the trailer to tow level, but in case it won't you can also raise or lower the pin box on the trailer frame to make height adjustments that way too.

  • How to Remove a B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch from a Truck Bed
  • To uninstall the Companion hitch head, your will first remove the Saddle lock pins. Then grab the saddle handles and lift to remove the head from the pivot arms. Removing the head will make taking out the base easier since it won't be as heavy. To remove the actual Companion base, loosen the draw down bolt and retract the Turnoverball gooseneck latch pin handle all the way out. Carefully lift and position the Companion base out of the Gooseneck hitch socket. I have linked the instructions...

  • Difference Between B&W Companion Slider Hitch BWRVK3400 and BWRVK3400-5W
  • There is no difference at all between the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3400 and the # BWRVK3400-5W. We use the -5W at the end of the part number to allow the hitch to show up in two different fitguides. One for the gooseneck fitguide and then one for the fifth wheel fitguide. The Companion setups are considered by many to be the nicest fifth wheel hitch around. The Companion slider is going to be a much better option than using an adapter to use the stationary Pro Series hitch.

  • How to Tell if 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 Has Factory Rail Kit for Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • Most likely you would know if you had the Factory Rail Kit in your 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500. There would be holes in the bed of your truck that the feet of a fifth wheel hitch would fit into. I attached a picture that shows what they pucks/holes would look like. If you have them the B and W Hitch part # BWRVK3700 that you referenced would fit and work well. Otherwise for an underbed fifth wheel hitch setup I would recommend the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550022 which will automatically...

  • Recommended Lubrication of B & W 5th Wheel Hitch
  • B & W recommends you lubricate the top surface of the coupler with an automotive type chassis grease like # L10337 or use a nylon lube plate like # RP83002 to provide a lubricated surface. They also recommend you grease the jaws with an automotive type chassis grease and grease the saddle through the grease zerk about every six months with multi-purpose grease like # L11316. This will allow the coupler to pivot freely. See the diagram I have included showing the location of the grease...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch with Below bed Rails for 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 with 6-1/2 Foot bed
  • There are three high-quality options for you to install a fifth-wheel hitch with under bed rails on your 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed without the factory rail kit. The first hitch is the one I recommend, the B&W Companion # BWRVK3400-5W, which installs with the Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1016-5W. The rails double as a Turnoverball gooseneck hitch, and the Companion, which has a capacity of 20,000 lbs, features jaws which are 1" thick and provide full...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ram 3500 Crew Cab
  • I have a couple of different options for your 2017 Ram 3500 Crew Cab. Your truck has a bed height of just over 20 inches so I will recommend some 5th wheel hitches that are adjustable to under 3 inches of that 20 inch mark that you're looking for. The most economical option for your Ram is the Curt E16 5th Wheel Hitch # C16115 with the Curt Base Rails # C16426-204. This features the Slide Bar Jaw to secure your king pin and has a Gross Towing Weight of 16,000 lbs. The next step up...

  • Can B&W Companion Slider 5th Wheel Hitch be Slid Back to Accommodate Extreme Driveway Angle Shift
  • Slider 5th wheel trailer hitches such as B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20K Item # BWRVK3670 are designed to be slid back when making maneuvers. Since what you have described is basically just that it will work fine for your application. You just aren't supposed to do any regular towing with the hitch slid back but low-speed maneuvers off of roads and highways is fine.

  • Recommendation for a 5th Wheel Hitch to Fit a 2017 Ram 3500 w/ 8 Ft Bed and Factory Rail Kit
  • Between the two 5th wheel hitches that you referenced, I recommend the B&W hitch over the Curt hitch. The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for the Ram Towing Prep Package, # BWRVK3600, is design to fit right into your Ram's factory pucks located in the truck's bed. The B&W hitch has a gross towing rate of 25,000 lbs and an adjustable hitch height between 17 to 19 inches. What I like about the B&W hitch is the design of the hitch jaws. The 1 inch thick wrap around dual jaw will allow...

  • Will B&W Fifth Wheel Hitch Work With 2016 Nissan Titan XD Fifth Wheel Adapter
  • I did some research on the fifth wheel adapter from Nissan for your 2016 Titan XD. I found out that when the adapter is inserted in the puck system in the bed of the Titan, it will give you base rails that can work with any industry standard fifth wheel hitch. The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # BWRVK3200 will work with these rails, but I recommend using a slider fifth wheel hitch. I recommend the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider, part # BWRVK3270. This...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2018 GMC 2500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • We have had confirmation that the 2018 GM factory fifth wheel rail kit is the same as the 2017 so if you had a short bed truck you'd want the slider Companion part # BWRVK3770 or if you had a long bed truck you'd want the part # BWRVK3700. The Companion hitches are considered by most RVers to be the nicest on the market so that's why we recommend them so highly.

  • Can Locking Pins Be Used With B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount
  • I spoke with my contact at B&W about locking pins for the Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B. He confirmed that pins can be used in the ball mount, but they need to be able to span the hitch, have a diameter of 5/8 inches, and be rated for 10,000 pounds. I found the longer of the 2 pins in the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # AM3492 to span the width of the Tow & Stow # BWTS10048B. I have attached some photos I took showing the adjustment pin lock in the...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Sliding Hitch for 2016 Ford F-250 SD with 6-3/4-Foot Bed
  • The B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package # BWRVK3300 is a fit for long-bed F-250s but not for your short bed. Your 6-3/4-foot bed will require a sliding 5th wheel hitch that will provide the additional turning clearance required by your short bed. The linked page will show you all 5th wheel hitch options for your F-250 short bed with 5th wheel factory prep.

  • Recommended 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2017 Ram 2500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3270 referenced in your question can be used on your 2017 Ram 2500 with the factory rail kit by using the Reese Rail Adapter # RP30154. The B&W Patriot is compatible with industry-standard, above-bed rails, which is exactly what mounting the Reese Rail Adapter to your factory puck system will provide. Because the Reese Rail Adapter uses the existing puck mounting system, no drilling will be required during installation. I have...

  • Auto Slide Fifth Wheel Hitch With 18K Capacity for 2015 Ram 2500 w/ OEM Tow/Prep Package
  • From the description you provided, It sounds like you're looking for the Demco Hijacker Autoslide, part # DM8550034. You'd also need the # DM6099 adapter for the Ram OEM 5th wheel towing prep package. The Hijacker automatically slides rearward during turns, and will return into place after you straighten out. The Hijacker Autoslide has an 18K capacity, so it sounds exactly like what you're looking for. A 21K version is also available as part # DM8550035.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ram 2500 With 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • The fifth wheel hitch I strongly recommend for your 2018 Ram 2500 with the factory puck system is the B&W Companion # BWRVK3670. The Companion is considered by many to be the highest-quality fifth wheel hitch available. It features dual jaws which are a full 1" thick to provide complete contact with your king pin so you can have faith that your connection is completely secure. I've added a picture of the jaws so you can see for yourself how impressive they are. The Companion is also...

  • How to Remove B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch from Turnover Ball Goosneck Hitch
  • The video I've linked for you shows the # BWRVK3500 B&W Companion being installed. To remove the hitch, simply reverse the process. Pull the release handle in the driver's side wheel well, then climb in the truck bed. Remove the two pins that hold the fifth wheel head in place, and lift the head off the hitch. Then, you can lift straight up on the base to remove it. After the hitch is removed, I'd recommend installing the gooseneck ball upside down, it'll help keep dirt, debris and...

  • B&W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Ford F-250 without Factory Prep Package
  • If your 2017 Ford F-250 came with the factory 5th wheel and gooseneck prep package then there would be a total of 5 larger holes in the bed. Four of the holes forming a square around one in the center. That one in the center would be the gooseneck ball hole. If those holes are not present then the truck does not have the factory installed prep package. You can also have a Ford dealer punch the truck VIN into their computer system and they can tell you how the truck is equipped. If it...

  • Comparing the B&W Patriot and Demco Hijacker AutoSlide Sliding 5th Wheel Hitches
  • We do not offer the Pullrite brand but in my research it does appear to compare to our Demco Hijacker AutoSlide like # DM8550024. Both the B&W and Demco 5th wheel hitches are great for the short bed user. What will make the difference is the clearance needed by the user to have adequate turning clearance. For me personally also effort. I have personally had to slide the B&W 5th wheel hitch # BWRVK3270 and it was by far one of the easiest, by a landslide, since the unit was built...

  • How to Determine What 5th Wheel Hitch Height is Needed for 2015 F350 Dually
  • To figure out at which height you need the hitch, jack the trailer so it's level. Measure from the underside of the pin box (not the king pin) to the ground, which will be measurement number 1. Then, also on level ground measure how high above the ground the floor of your truck bed is, which is measurement number 2. Subtract measurement 2 from measurement 1, and you'll get the needed height above the truck bed floor. All three companies make an excellent product, any one of the three...

  • Can I Make a 90 Degree Turn with 5th Wheel Trailer Using B&W Companion Slider pm 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • In order to make 90 degree turns and have a little clearance left over to account for uneven ground the distance from the back of the cab to the center of the ball or hitch jaws, including any travel from a slider, needs to be at least 4 inches greater than 1/2 the width of the trailer. For a 96 inch wide trailer you would need 52 inches. Given the 34 inches you measured and the 12 inches of travel from the slider that gets you to 46 inches, 6 inches short of where you need to be.
