Curt A25 vs B&W Companion for 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 Long Bed with Factory Puck System Prep Package


I see a price difference between Curt and BandW, what is the comparison?


Expert Reply:

While both are high-quality hitches that fit your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 long bed, the B&W Companion is considered the best 5th wheel hitch in the industry.

The Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C24FR has a very good dual-jaw system and a nice, easy-to-use color-coded indicator system for coupling and uncoupling, which is why people really like it. That said, the Companion is in a different category because of its immense jaws, cushioned bushings, and pivoting head, which combine to give you the most comfortable and quiet towing experience possible.

You have two choices for the B&W Companion that fits your long bed 2020 Sierra 3500 with the factory puck system, with the only difference being their weight capacity:

- 20,000 lbs: B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3710

- 25,000 lbs: B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3715

The jaws on the Companion are 1 inch thick, and this robust jaw system is the key reason why the Companion - more than any other fifth wheel hitch - minimizes the chucking, jarring and noise that can occur when towing a fifth wheel trailer. If you take a look at the accompanying photo you can see the full breadth of these jaws and why they act like an adhesive to your king pin.

So while you wouldn't regret going with the Curt A25 # C24FR, if it was my 2020 GMC Sierra 3500, I'd go with the best, which is the Companion.
