Video Transcript for B and W Fifth Wheel BWRVB3270 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the replacement slider base for the BMW Patriot slider 5th wheel trailer hitch, and this has an 18,000 pound weight capacity. Now this replacement slider base will fit the BMW Patriot slider 5th wheel trailer hitch and allows you to attach your 5th wheel hitch to the rails in your truck bed. The adjustable pivot arms, which are these right here that I've attached to the base already, this will let you mount the hitch head to fit your application. It has the polyurethane bushings right up at the top here. The hitch head would drop right on top of that. Now these arms when you attach them to here, there's a range of holes on both sides, so you can move the arms front to back for improved cab clearance, and you can also put them up to down to raise or lower. It gives you about three different hitch height settings because you want your trailer that you're towing to be about as level as possible to the tow vehicle, so you can put this in three different hitch height settings, either 17 inch, 18 inch, or 19 inch, and the hitch height is always measured from the truck bed to the top of the hitch head when it's installed in here.

The hitch head that goes on here is a part number BWRVC3200. We do sell that separately on your website. That would fit right on top of here and you can also buy this base with the head already included, and that's part number BWRVK3270. Now this is a very quick and simple installation. It fits on the above bed base rails, so it is compatible with industry standard above bed base rails. The rails we do sell separately.

If you already have rails in your truck bed they should work in there with no problem. This does include the four hitch pins and clips that'll attach the hitch to the rails. This base is a steel construction. It has a nice grey power coat finish, which is corrosion resistant. This part is made in the USA. A few specs on this, the gross towing weight capacity is 18,000 pounds.

The hitch height I had mentioned once your head's on here measure from the truck bed to the top of the hitch head would be 17 inches to 19 inches, and the travel on this, I'm going to show you the travel is 12 inches front to back, so if this is the cab, that would be the tailgate so this is in the lock towing position. If you just raise that lever up you can see it'll go 12 inches, and once it hits the maneuvering position it would lock into place and then when you're done maneuvering and you want to go back to the towing position, again just lift that lever up to unlock it and it'll release and lock into the towing position just like that. One last measurement I want to give you is the foot print of this, the width and the depth of it to give you an idea of how much space this will take up in your truck bed. Width is going to be right at 32 inches and the depth from front to back is right at 29 and 1/2. That should do it for the review of the replacement slider base for the BMW Patriot slider 5th wheel trailer hitch with the 18,000 pound weight capacity.

Replacement Slider Base for B&W Patriot Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - 18,000 lbs - BWRVB3270

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (7 Customer Reviews)

This replacement slider base fits your B&W Patriot fifth-wheel trailer hitch. Adjustable arms have polyurethane bushings for hitch head (sold separately) to ride on, resulting in less rattle and noise.

by:

Absolutely superb quality. This replaced my fixed base and I was so glad when it dropped right into the slots on my rails. This is very heavy as it should be no lighter. I'm glad I had a front loader to get it into the truck. The head plate I already had was also a perfect fit on the new vertical arms. Instructions where also easy to understand. I gave 4 stars because They need to weld a loop on it especially on the pivoting mounting plate. I highly recommend B&W Hitches

Still performing well. I still recommend a locking device of some kind to secure the pivoting head plate



by:

I had 2 previous hitches that fit the rails great, I had to modify the rail to fit this one. I still had to hammer the mounting pins in. I think it will be great for towing and backing.



by:

Shipping company provided a package where the pallet was not damaged and the package was intact with no damage. This is rare now days. The driver allowed me to back up to his truck with mine and this way the load was already in the back of the truck ready to unpackage and install. It installed quickly with no issues.

Great hitch that is affordable and easy to install

  • Is Head Between B and W Patriot and Companion Interchangeable
    The Patriot and Companion hitches use different heads so you cannot swap them. So since you are wanting a Patriot slider hitch you'd need the part # BWRVK3270. It should be pretty easy to sell your old Companion hitch second hand as they are very desirable hitches.

  • Will The Head For A B&W Patriot Fit On The B&W Companion Base?
    The Replacement Head Assembly for B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVC3200 is only going to work with the B&W Patriot base and will unfortunately not work with the Replacement Base for B&W Companion Flatbed 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVB3055. Although these hitches are very similar, the parts are not interchangeable between the two. For the B&W Patriot Head, you're going to want to use the Replacement Slider Base for B&W Patriot Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVB3270.

  • Replacement Fifth Wheel Head Recommendation for a B and W Slider Unit
    It sounds like you have a B and W Patriot Slider base like part # BWRVB3270 and are looking for a replacement head for it. The only head that will fit this slider unit is the # BWRVC3200 that you referenced. The Companion hitches use different heads and slider units than the Patriot.

  • Will the B&W Patriot 16K Head Fit the B&W Patriot 18K Base
    Yes, the Head Assembly for B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # BWRVC3200 is the same for both 16,000 lb and 18,000 lb models so you can use this with the Slider Base for B&W Patriot Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVB3270.

  • 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...

  • Can I Use a Longer Pin Box on My 5th Wheel Trailer and B&W Hitch
    We have some ways to gain more clearance in your truck bed but you'll need to either use a sliding hitch like the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3270 (you would just need the base # BWRVB3270) or you need to use a Sidewinder pin box which has a rotating turret so your trailer turns back at the turret as opposed to the king pin. Manufacturers of 5th wheel trailers warn against using pin boxes that have different dimensions because it changes how the weight is placed on the pin box and the chassis so...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter for Factory Prep Package Pucks on 2018 Ram 2500

Either of these adapters will work well with your B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch. If your current hitch isn't a sliding hitch, because you are getting a short bed truck you may want to also consider the sliding base # BWRVB3270.

  • Under Bed Pucks and Puck to Rail Adapter for B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch in 2022 Ford F-350
    The Reese 30180 which we carry as part # RP39FR is compatible with your 2022 Ford F-350. For a puck adapter that provides rails that would accept the B&W Patriot 5th wheel hitch you already have, the Demco # DM6175 would be a good choice. If your bed is shorter than 8 feet, you'll want to make sure you use the sliding Patriot 5th wheel hitch unless your 5th wheel has the concaved-in front corners and the 5th wheel manufacturer specifically states that a sliding hitch isn't necessary.

    We do not offer a slider base for the B&W Companion hitch head that will fit into the Reese adapter # RP30154. For the most turning clearance in your short bed truck I suggest an automatic slider hitch with the most travel. Demco's Hijacker 18K Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM8550034 and installation kit # DM6099 will mount into the factory pucks. This slider automatically releases when you make sharp turns and its 14-inches of travel means the most clearance possible between your...

This being said, the problem comes in when you try to find something to adapt the slider to the GM puck system. Demco states that their # DM6333 adapter isn't compatible with the B&W Patriot Slider.
