Video Transcript for B and W Fifth Wheel BWRVB3255 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Replacement Base for the BMW Patriot Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch. Has an 18,000 pound weight capacity. Now this replacement base will fit the BMW Patriot Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch and allows you to attach your fifth wheel hitch to the rails in your truck-bed. I've already bolted these pivot arms to the base. These are adjustable to let you mount your hitch head to fit your application. Your hitch head will drop right on top of these polyurethane bushings and basically depending on where you mount these pivot arms there's multiple holes in the side of this base, so depending where you mount it you can move these arms fore or aft to improve cab clearance.

Gives you about 4 inches of range from front to back adjustment and depending on which row of holes you can also raise or lower your hitch with 4 different hitch height settings anywhere from about 16 inches up to 19 inches. Now these polyurethane bushings this is what the head will sit on. Now the head we do sell separately, it's part number DWRVC3200. We sell that on our website separately. Now you can also buy the base with the head as a complete kit and that's part number BWRVK3255. Basically it's a very quick simple installation you can drop the head right on here and then this will drop right into the rails that are in your truck-bed.

It is compatible with industry standard above bed base rails. If you need those we do sell those separately also. It will include the 4 pins and clips for attaching this hitch to the rails. This whole base is a steel construction, has a nice grey powder-coat finish on it which is corrosion resistant. It is made in the USA. Again a few specks on this base, the gross towing weight is 18,000 pounds as I mentioned when you bolt these pivot arms you have a range of hitch height adjustment from 16 inches to 19 inches. Just to give you an idea of the complete footprint of what this will take up in your truck-bed, you can see the overall width is 31 and a 1/2 inches wide and the depth is 24 inches deep.

That should do it for the review of the Replacement Base for the BMW Patriot Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with the 18,000 pound weight capacity.

  • Parts Needed to Upgarde B&W Patriot Fifth Wheel Hitch from 16k to 18k
    The heads of both the 18k and 16k B and W Patriot hitches are actually the same and it's the base that would need to get swapped to upgrade the capacity. So you'd instead want the part # BWRVB3255.

  • Replacement Base for B&W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch

  • Can B and W Patriot Fifth Wheel Hitch be Used in Bed of 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Long Bed
    The part # BWRVB3270 is just the slider base of the slider Patriot hitch part # BWRVK3270 which could fit in the bed of your 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 long bed as long as you had a standard set of fifth wheel rails installed. Which for that you'd just need the part # BWRVR3200 and you'd be set. Since you have a long bed truck you really wouldn't need a slider hitch since the slider hitches are designed to give better turning clearance. A better option would be the fixed Patriot part # BWRVK3255...

  • Adapter Rail Needed For A B&W Patriot Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch For A 2017 Ford F-450 Puck System
    There isn't a different Patriot base for your B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider 18,000lbs # BWRVK3270 that would drop into your 2017 Ford F-450 Super Duty's puck system so I recommend using an adapter rail like the Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch - Ford and Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package Item # C88KR and installing your hitch onto it. You can still use the slider base and just leave it locked in place. If you want to clear up some space in your bed and make the hitch...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Compatibility Between 2015 Ford 2500 And 1999 Chevrolet C/K 2500
    Unfortunately the Underbed Puck mounted systems are not available for your 1999 Chevrolet C/K 2500. I recommend getting a set of standard 5th wheel rails, like the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt, # RP30035, and getting the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 18,000 lbs, # BWRVK3255, for a similiar hitch or if you only need the base, the Replacement Base for B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - 18,000 lbs, # BWRVB3255.
