Can the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500 be Converted for Use on 2017 Silverado 3500 with Puck Package


I have a Companion Turnover Ball fifth wheel hitch. Just purchased a different truck 2017 High Country 3500HD DW and it has the factory installed towing setup. Is there a way to make my current hitch work with the gooseneck part of my new setup or do I need to purchase a new hitch with the pucks?

We do have the Slider Base # BWRVB3770 if your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 is a 6-1/2 foot bed or the Base # BWRVB3700 if you have an 8 foot bed. These are compatible with the factory prep package in your Silverado and will allow you to use the Companion hitch head from the B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3500 that you already have.

Instead of just replacing the base I recommend selling your entire Companion and using that money to offset the price of purchasing the B&W Companion # BWRVK3770 or B&W Companion # BWRVK3700 depending on if you have the short or long bed respectively. Selling the whole hitch will be easier than just trying to sell the base that you won't be using anymore.
