Review of the B and W Companion Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Adapter


Today we'll be taking a look at the B and W Companion Gooseneck and 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter, part number BWRVK3500. This 5th-wheel companion is going to be great for hooking up any 5th-wheel trailers that you may have. Also, if you have gooseneck trailers it still works great, because this goes into gooseneck rails that you can use the gooseneck ball with. What's really nice about this 5th-wheel companion is that you can completely remove it from the bed, so when you take it out, you've got full bed access and there are no cross rails left behind. It features a dual-jaw design that's going to give you 360 degrees of coverage around your kingpin. Unlike slide-bar jaws, the rounded two-piece jaw on this 5th-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement, while securely wrapping around your trailer's kingpin, resulting in easier hookup, and a safer, quieter ride. In order to operate those dual jaws, you simply remove the pin from the handle here, then this handle is a cam-action so as you pull the handle back, it's going to open up the jaws so you can slide your kingpin in.

When that kingpin his and makes pressure, it will close it and lock around it with that 360 degrees, then you can replace your pin. Because the head on this tilts both front to back and side to side, and with the way that the dual-jaw and cam-action lever is set up, it's not going to lock up on you when you're on uneven ground, so you shouldn't have a problem getting your kingpin out from your 5th-wheel hitch. It features a 5,000 pound vertical load limit, and a 20,000 pound gross towing rating. Through the opening in the side right here, you can see that we've got multiple holes which allows you to give the proper adjustment for whatever your truck's needs are. If you need it to sit a little bit higher, a little bit lower, or a little bit further forward or back, this is going to allow you to do that with all those points of adjustability. The overall hitch height can be adjusted from 16-1/4" to 18-1/4".

Here on the bottom of the rail it's got these plastic pads that what they do, is go down into the low ribs of the bed's corrugation to provide a nice fit. They are adjustable throughout this slot here, so then you can tighten them down once you have them lined up inside those low ribs. No modifications are required to your truck or trailer, and no additional parts are required for the system to work. That will do it for our look and the B and W Companion Gooseneck and 5th-wheel trailer hitch adapter, part number BWRVK3500.
