Review of B and W Trailer Coupler BWRVK3050


Today were going to review part number BWRVK3050. This is the BMW companion flat bed fifth wheel trailer hitch with the dual jaw design and a 22,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this is designed to fit on the BMW turn over ball under bed goose neck trailer hitch for flat bed trucks that we sell separately, its part number BWGNRK1500. If you have that under bed goose neck hitch installed in your flat bed, you can actually use this trailer hitch here to convert that goose neck hitch on your flat bed to be able to tow a fifth wheel trailer. The design of this is a rail free design basically it uses a square post right here on the center that would insert into that under bed goose neck hitch. Lock it into place then you are able to tow your fifth wheel trailer.Now, when youre done towing and you can remove this from your truck bed it will allow you full access to your truck bed when its removed.

Now, this hitch does have the one inch thick dual jaws right here that will provide a 360 degree jaw to king pin contact, that will give you less rattle, more security than those slide bar jaws. Right here it has the cam action latching handle which helps prevent binding. Basically this handle will allow you to quickly and easily release the jaws on the hitch. Even if youre on an uneven terrain, basically what you would do is just remove the clip, the pin. When youre going to hook up just push this and as you notice the two dual jaws will open wide.

Then when you back up into the king pin, the king ping would slide up in here.Push those, hits the back here, push those two jaws together which would wrap around the king pin and then as its pushing those jaws together it would move this handle back into position. Then right back here, if I can just turn this a little bit, these holes would line up and you can take this pin, drop it in, clip it into place that will lock the handle into place. Now this is large enough you could put a padlock through here if you prefer. We sell those separately, theyll give you extra security but it does some with this pinning clip attached. Basically what will then happen is then youre ready to tow this right now, when you get to where youre wanting and you want to release what youll have to do is just push the clip, hold the pin out, push this handle back.Now sometimes when you do that if theres any binding that might occur between the truck and the trailer, these jaws may remain closed when you move this handle to the open position but because the handle is unlatched, theres nothing thats keeping these jaws closed, except that binding pressure.

Simply if you just drive your truck forward a little bit it will be enough to force the jaws open and youre able to be detached from the fifth wheel trailer. This does have a fully articulating head, as you can see it does go front to back. This part up here the head will go side to side, its hard to show it because its very tight but this head part right here will go side to side.Its a fully articulating head that will help this hook up, help the limit chucking. Give you a quiet rattle free ride because this head right here sits on this polyurethane bushings which are right underneath here. This is a very quick simple installation, this RV square post right here will install in the ball hole of your BMW turn over flat bed trailer hitch.

This base attaches to that post and then the hitch head just drops on to the bushings. Has a gray powder coat finish, its a coated steel which is corrosion resistant. It is made in the USA. Now this does have a gross towing weight capacity of 22,000 pounds. Vertical load limit of 5,500 pounds and a limited five year warranty.I just want to show you that feature again. Heres take the pin, take the pin out, push the handle back you can see it opens up. King pin slides in, pushes the jaws closed, moves the handle up and then just drop your pin in to lock it into position, and youre ready to go. Now, the other nice thing is when youre going to remove this, when youre done towing and you want to remove it instead of trying to take the whole unit out which is pretty heavy. You can just pull these clips right here, slide these pins right out. Theyre attached so you wont lose them. Then if you just grab both of these handles right here, theyre rubber coated in the end, and then squeeze that and then pick up at the same time. You can lift this head right off the polyurethane bushing.Then you can hand take that off, and then when you remove this its a lot easier instead of trying to remove it all together. Now, one thing when you do remove this head, I recommend you look underneath at the very center underneath, if you flip it upside down there will be a grease inaudible 00:04:46 fitting. Youll notice there what you want to do is eventually over time, you just want to keep greasing that. What that does is it lubricates this copper right here to make it easier to articulate for the head to articulate. That should do it for the review on part number BWRVK3050, the BMW companion flat bed fifth wheel trailer hitch. .
