Review of B and W Fifth Wheel Installation Kit BWGNRK1104-5W


Today we're going to review part number BWGNRK1104-5W. This is the B and W custom under bed installation kit for the B and W companion fifth Wheel trailer hitches. This part is a custom fit design. It is made to fit the 2004 to 2014 Ford F150 new body style, in either the long or the short bed models. Not only does this installation kit provide you with a sturdy custom base for installing your B and W companion fifth wheel trailer hitch in the bed of your truck, it'll also double as a turnover ball goose neck hitch. It does include the side mounting brackets we show here. The rails, the goose neck hitch head, the spring loaded safety chain loops, and the goose neck turn over ball hitch ball.

This kit will work with the B and W companion fixed fifth wheel hitch, part number BWRVK3500 and the B and W companion slider fifth wheel hitch, part number BWRVK3400. Both of those we do sell separately on our web site. Now this does install under the truck bed. When it's not used for towing, will provide complete truck bed access. This kit is custom designed for your vehicle. The truck bed does not have to be removed for installation.

The mounting brackets right here on the side will bolt to existing holes in your truck's frame. While there might be some modification required in installation, the main thing is you will need to cut a 4 inch diameter hole right here, to have access to this opening.You'll need to drill 4 9/16th hole for these built in safety chain loops. Otherwise, there's no need to weld or drill into your frame. Once you have the brackets and the center section all installed, what you'll want to do is install this operating handle right here. This handle is designed to be accessed from the rear driver's side wheel well. Basically, this handle will bolt on underneath here, to a heavy duty, 5/8 inch diameter steel pin that'll secure the mounting post of either the B and W companion fifth wheel hitch or the base of this goose neck hitch ball. Basically, what you'll do is if you're going to tow a goose neck trailer, you can drop the turnover ball into place.

If you just twist this handle, it will release that pin and lock that ball into place. You're ready to tow with the goose neck trailer. When you're done, you can pull it out, twist it, and that will leave it locked open. If you're not going to tow anymore, you can just turn this over. It'll be underneath the bed of the truck.

Lock it into place. Nobody can get it out. Now if you're going to tow with the B and W fifth wheel hitch, basically what that does is that fifth wheel hitch will drop into the bed of your truck. The center post is a square post that will slide down into this opening. Now the square post on that hitch will also have these holes in it. When you drop that down into the opening again, just twist that handle. That pin will go in and lock that post into place, so you'll be able to tow with your fifth wheel trailer with the companion hitch. A few specs on this. The gross towing weight capacity is 30,000 pounds. The vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 7500 pounds. It does come with this turn over ball. This is a 2 5/16 inch diameter goose neck ball size. That should do it, for the review on part number BWGNRK1104-5W. This is the B and W custom under bed installation kit for the B and W companion fifth wheel trailer hitches. .
