Best Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ram 2500 Short Bed With Factory Prep Package


I have a 2018 Ram 2500 and my bed is 6-1/2 feet. I have the factory prep package also. Can you tell me what the absolute BEST fifth wheel hitch is that fits?


Expert Reply:

The best fifth wheel for your 2018 Ram 2500 is the B&W Companion # BWRVK3670, which is a sliding hitch that will fit directly in your Ram's factory pucks. The Companion is considered by many to be the highest-quality fifth wheel hitch available. With more than 400 reviews from our customers who have purchased it, this hitch has received a nearly unanimous 5-star rating.

The hitch 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 going to give you a much quieter ride with less rattling than other fifth wheels due to that secure connection, along with its polyurethane bushings. This hitch also has a pivoting head to make hooking up easier, a cam-action latch to deter binding, offers three different height settings to ensure you are level with your fifth wheel and has a towing capacity of 20,000 lbs.

If you do not yet have a wiring harness you will need that as well for your fifth wheel and the best option for your '18 Ram is the Pollak 5th Wheel / Gooseneck T-Connector with 7-Pole # PK11893-11932.
