Can Replacement Base for B&W Companion that Fits into Ram OEM Puck System Work without Puck System


Is there a install kit to put companion rvb3600 in 2016 dodge dually 3500 that doesnt have the factory mounting system


Expert Reply:

We do have some below bed fifth wheel hitch install kits for your 2016 Ram 3500 however the B&W replacement base, part # BWRVB3600, cannot be installed in your truck without the factory prep package.

If your Ram is a short bed you can use the install kit # DM8551006 from Demco and then use either part # DM8550022 for the 18,000 pound Hijacker Autoslide or part # DM8550037 for the 21,000 pound. This is an autosliding fifth wheel hitch to help with turning clearance in a short bed truck without having to get out to engage the slider.

On the other hand if you have a long bed use the B&W Turnoverball, part # BWGNRK1314, which is a gooseneck hitch that the B&W Companion fifth wheel hitch, part # BWRVK3500, fits directly into. It's rated for 20,000 pounds.

If you want to add wiring to the truck bed part # 50-97-410 is confirmed to fit.
