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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 2015 Ram 2500 Shortbed Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation
  • If you had the OEM hitch prep package in the bed of your 2015 Ram 2500 (there would be 4 pucks for the hitch to install into in the bed of the truck), then yes the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3600 that you referenced would fit your truck. But it doesn't look like you have the hitch prep package based on the vehicle info you ran through our fitguide. If you do not have the factory rail kit you would first need to start with the Custom Underbed...

  • The best slider hitch we offer for your 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 is going to be the B and W Companion Slider part # BWRVK3770 which will fit the rail kit directly and will be basically the nicest hitch available. Plus it does not require an adapter like some of the other hitch options would. I attached a review video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Recommendation on a 5th Wheel Hitch That Will Work with the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch
  • The best option to connect your 2018 Columbus 5th wheel trailer to your F-250 with the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch will be the B&W Companion Slider 5th Wheel Hitch, # BWRVK3400-5W. The Companion 5th wheel hitch will mount to the gooseneck opening of your B&W gooseneck hitch. The Companion is also a slider hitch which will help provide more clearance for your short-bed pickup when making turns with your rig. The Companion 5th wheel also has a 1 inch thick dual jaw to provide better...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-350 Long Bed
  • The hands down winner is the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3300 which fits directly to the rail kit of your 2016 Ford F-350. Many regard this as the nicest fifth wheel hitch on the market due to how well it works and how reliable it is. If you are looking for the best long-time hitch this is it. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. You nailed the only real differences between the part # RP30143 and # RP30871. The # RP30143 has a 25k capacity and the part...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch and Sidewinder Recommendations for 2014 Ram 3500 with Factory 5th Wheel Package
  • Short bed trucks like your 2014 Ram 3500 with factory 5th wheel prep package pose a challenge to making tight turns with your 5th wheel. Sidewinders are a great solution since they move the trailer's actual pivot point back by 22-inches to provide better trailer-to-cab clearance. You will need to find the existing pin box's part number in order to check for availability of a Sidewinder replacement pin box (or an Air-Ride Sidewinder). The linked article includes a listing of Sidewinder...

  • Comparing B&W # BWRVK3300 w/ Reese # RP30143 5th Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ford F350 w/ OEM Tow Prep Pkg
  • Both hitches are of the highest quality, you wouldn't go wrong either way. Given that you'll be on uneven terrain, you'll do better with the B&W # BWRVK3300, as its head pivots 8 degrees front to back and side to side, versus 4 degrees for the Reese Elite Series # RP30143. Even through the # BWRVK3300 has the lower capacity at 20K, it will pull your 18K toy hauler with no problem at all, as long as it doesn't go over the 20K capacity of the hitch.

  • Will the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch Fit my Factory Holes on my 2015 Ford F-350 8-Foot Bed
  • Yes, you will simply set up the B&W Companion fifth wheel hitch # BWRVK3300 pivot arms which will allow the hitch to be adjusted front to back or up and down for optimal positioning. Then place the Companion into the bed of your 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty, line up the base with your factory receiver sockets, and rotate all 4 handles on the hitch base outward. Lastly, fold the handles in until they are in the locked position and secure with the included pins. I included a short...

  • 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...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F350 with Hitch Prep Package
  • The B&W Companion OEM model, part # BWRVK3300, which you reference, has a 20K capacity so you will not want to go over the 20K capacity of the hitch. If your trailer weighs 23000 lbs you will be over the weight limit. As long as you have the long bed, and the fifth wheel prep package you can use the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30143. This hitch has a capacity of 25,000 lbs and would have plenty of capacity for your setup. You should have 4 slightly raised pucks...

  • What is the Best Truck for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • You are doing the right thing by doing the research first. There is a lot of conflicting information out there so let me break it down for you and I will provide some part recommendations at the end. Basically, if you want to tow a 5th wheel trailer, the best trucks are going to be long bed 3/4 or 1 tons like a Ford F-250/F-350, Chevy/GMC 2500/3500, or Ram 2500/3500. Half ton trucks could work but are not nearly as capable as the larger trucks. A long bed for sure is something you will...

  • 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...

  • Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Short Bed
  • If there was an adapter that would fit your application needs that would be a viable solution, but there are no puck adapters to go from the Signature Series puck dimensions to the dimensions of the GMC factory rail kit of your truck. So you'll need a new hitch. For that you would want the B and W Companion Hitch part # BWRVK3770. This is a slider hitch that will fit directly to your rail kit and will work great. Most people refer to the Companion hitches as being the nicest hitches...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 with Factory Rail Kit Towing 21k Trailer
  • The B and W Companion Hitch part # BWRVK3700 is a fit for your 2017 GMC Sierra with the factory rail kit but your trailer weighs 21k and this hitch has a 20k capacity so I cannot recommend it for you. I can assure you that the Curt Q25 hitch part # C16069 is conservatively rated for 25,000 lbs so it would easily handle the weight of your trailer. It may not have the same look as the B and W but Curt does extensively test the capacities of their hitches so it will work well for you.

  • Does B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch BWRVK3370 Come Assembled

  • Using Silencer Pad # BWTS35020 for Tow and Stow with Drop Down Pintle on 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • I spoke with my contact at B&W and since the Silencer Pad, # BWTS35020, is a universal product, it will fit differently on each vehicle and some may need to use greater force in order to get the hitch pin holes on the ball mount to line up with those on the hitch. Please keep in mind that the silencer pad installs between the face of the hitch on your 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe and the back of the Tow & Stow. No part of the silencer should be pushed into the hitch receiver opening. I have...

  • Recommendation To Reduce 5th Wheel Trailer Sway
  • If you are not pulling the trailer level, I recommend making that adjustment. This may mean adjusting your king pin on your 33 foot Rockwood Ultra Lite Camper or adjusting the height on your Companion 5th wheel hitch # BWRVK3500-5W. It would definitely be worth moving the angle closer to your cab because that will put a little more weigh over your axle in your 2016 Ford F-350. Having the tongue too high can cause the trailer to move and sway, but you may also want to consider using rear...

  • Correct Wedge for B&W Companion Hitch for Using Sidewinder Pin Box
  • If your B&W Companion hitch mounts into the 4 pucks in your truck bed, like with part # BWRVK3600, you can use custom wedge part # SWW-06. If your B&W Companion hitch uses a single post to mount in a gooseneck ball hole in your truck bed, as with hitch # BWRVK3500-5W, then you cannot use it with a Sidewinder pin box since that post would be damaged by the forces applied to it by the trailer.

The square part of the hitch ball is 4" long and 2-1/2" wide. The diameter of the locking pin hole is 11/16".

And if your trailer is 18,500-lbs dry, I certainly see why you are looking for additional capacity and safety margin.

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...
