B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Options for a 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500

Question:

I would like to use the B&W Companion fifth wheel hitch with my 2020 Silverado 3500. Is there a certain one I'm needing or are they all the same?

Great question! There are a few different B&W Companion 5th wheel hitches and the correct one all depends on the configuration of your 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500.

If you have the OEM Prep Package (with the pucks) then you need the sliding Companion # BWRVK3775 for a short bed (to gain enough cab clearance on tight turns) OR one of the stationary Companions, available as 20K # BWRVK3710 or 25K # BWRVK3715 weight rating, for a long bed. These options fit directly to the puck system and don't require any kind of adapter.

If you don't have the OEM Prep Package then you first need to install the B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1020 and then use the Companion # BWRVK3400 for a short bed or # BWRVK3500 for a long bed. These Companions fit directly into the square receiver that is unique to the B&W gooseneck hitch so you don't need an adapter for this configuration either.

Attached are some review videos for you to check out so you can see the different ways that these install.
