Fifth Wheel Hitch and Tonneau Cover Recommendation for 2018 Ram 3500 Short Bed with Puck System


Looking for a 5th wheel hitch and also a soft tonneau for my 2018 Ram 3500. Has the short bed and the puck system too. Thank you.

Starting with the 5th wheel hitch I highly recommend the B&W Companion OEM Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3670 for your short bed 2018 Ram 3500 that is equipped with the factory puck system. The Companion series hitches are considered by many to be the best on the market and this particular model is designed to drop right into the pucks in your Ram's truck bed. It features 1 inch thick dual jaws for an excellent connection with the trailer, a fully articulating head for easy hookup, and 12 inches of front to back slider travel to provide you with the needed cab clearance during sharp turns. It has a towing weight capacity of 20,000 pounds.

I have attached a short video demonstration on this hitch that you can also check out.

Then for a soft tonneau cover that will work well I recommend taking a look at the TruXedo Pro X15 # TX1446901. This is a really nice flush mount cover that features a matte black polyester and vinyl skin for a sleek look on your truck. Its automatic tension control will also maintain a tight fit. I have included the installation instructions for this cover that you can look at as well.
