Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch That Works With Factory Rail Kit On 2017 Ram 3500


Hi, I have a 2017 Ram 3500 6 Foot Bed with Factory Rail Kit. I want to use my gooseneck ball/hitch to pull my 5th Wheel trailer. My trailer is 2017 Heartland Bighorn 43.8Ft long AKA 3970 and it weighs roughly 17,500 LBS. I am wanting to know what is the best adapter or system to do this with? What is your recommendations on this setup? Also what is your thoughts about this towing process? Thank You,

With the weight of your trailer it would be best to use the pucks in your truck bed and not rely on an adapter to tow your fifth wheel. Since you have the factory rail kit in your 2017 Ram 3500 I recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3670.

This hitch drops into the receiver pucks in the bed of your truck. Once installed, this hitch gives you 12 inches front to back travel. When you remove the hitch you have full bed access.
