Shipped and delivered as expected. This is an amazing hitch and I needed a replacement head and this came just in time. Greased and ready to go!



by:

Damaged. Both pieces came in factory B&W boxes. Both boxes have accessory packets inside. Those accessories are very heavy and not packaged very well. They are free to bounce around in the box and put chips all over in the powder coat paint. Now it is going to rust! For $1300 you think they could use $2 in packing paper. My packages were tossed about by at least a dozen people according to the tracking. All I can say is that this is poor.
Etrailer on the other hand is being very helpful in resolving some of my problems. They are sending a new coupler with no questions asked. The handle is bent from the rough trip making it impossible to use. Amy was a pleasure to work with. Hopefully the next one will be ok.



by:

One of the most stout 5th wheel heads and bases. Very simple and extremely durable. The fact that this head breaks away from the base makes it possible to remove the head and base with only one person and without a lift or getting a hernia.



by:

Hitch arrived on time, completely satisfied trailers delivery and costumer service.



by:

Product was just as expected great quality. etrailer was excellent to deal with and fast shipping. I received my product a day earlier than expected.



by:

Installation was fairly easy. Followed the included directions an verified each step with the product video. Drilling a 4 inch hole in the bed of the truck was a different story. But hole lined up perfectly with the center piece an the bolt holes of the bed frame.
The only draw back was there is not enough room to tourqe all the bolts to spec. I moved my smaller 5th wheel last week about 40 miles an will be using it this weekend to move my 40 ft toy hauler.
Great customer service an follow up with this company.

I have had my B&W Companion hitch for over a year now in my truck. Best hitch I have had. Easy to change from 5th wheel to goose neck. No problems. It was easy to install with the assisting video from the e trailer website.



by:

Very well made heavy duty hitch. Its heavy, I put an eye hook into the center of my garage header, then used a chain pully to lift it. Then just back in and centered it over the puck system, I was able to lower it and move it into position perfectly by myself. I did use a hitch lift that locks into the receiver. Don't forget to grease it, under the head, can be done after in place.



by:

Got my hitch in a timely manner, everything looks good. Thank you etrailer.



by:

Great looking heavy well made product and the unit was shipped the night I ordered and received Monday after the Thursday night order. Good phone service with call back service from etrailer when lines are busy so no long on phone hold waiting time waste.

Been amazing product works great

Awesome setup. This is from someone that has been using an auto slide that was noisy and jerky. This unit is simple and very serviceable.

Excellent quality and fast shipping



by:

I loved ordering through yall made it quick and easy would want to again.



by:

Order was delivered on time and the price was right. Thank you



by:

This Head assembly is very well built, I purchase this so when I get a fifth wheel trailer I will be able to tow with confidence. I purchased the base unit used. So I'm all set to tow whatever trailer I purchase!

Purchased this a year ago and very well built, and heavy!!! Definitely would purchase again!!!



by:

This thing is sturdy and smooth!



by:

Met my expectations



by:

Product is great! Unfortunately the parts bag from the manufacturer was short a couple of items. I called etrailer and they took care of everything! Overnight delivery on the missing parts. etrailer’s customer service was second to none!



by:

Great job helping me with the return product and the quick return for a new one thanks will others know



by:

Just what I ordered. Got it as quick as possible. Great response from etrailor.



by:

Can't even leave a review describing why I am upset with etrailer because the detail are "not appropriate for a review. Do not trust their recommended parts, customer service, or shipping departments. They will not take responsibility for their mistakes, and you might lose customers because of it. Would give 0/5 stars if I could.



by:

This company is great to order from. I ordered my hitch head on a Tuesday night and received it on Thursday. That was very quick. I will continue to buy from them.



by:

This was a replacement. I was stuck at a campground and needed the head unit asap. When the new unit came in, the right side was bent and the would not go all the way down. It's working and locked in place but, I do worry about it

I have sent you an email about this. We would love the chance to put your mind at ease about this if we can.



by:

Awesome product, and great customer service. I have bought several items from etrailer and have not yet been disappointed.



by:

LOVE THIS SYSTEM EASY TO ATTACH TO MY CAMPER. EASY TO REMOVE FROM THE BED OF THE TRUCK, LEAVING A FLAT CLEAR SURFACE WITH OUT THE CLUTTER OF RAILS TO SLIDE CARGO IN AND OUT . THE 4 WAY MOVEMENT OF THE FIFTH WHEEL PLATE ALLOWS FOR A VERY SMOOTH RIDE WHEN PULLING MY CAMPER WITH LITTLE TO NO SWAY GOING DOWN THE ROAD AND AROUND CORNERS . THE SWINGING LATCH SYSTEM IS GREAT. NO GUESSING FROM INSIDE THE TRUCK IF ITS CONNECTED .ONCE ITS HOOKED JUST DROP IN THE SAFETY PIN AND YOUR READY. ONLY DOWN FALL IS THE HITCH ITSELF IS VERY HEAVY TO MOVE. BUT WHEN THAT IS THE ONLY THING HOLDING THE CAMPER TO MY TRUCK I WOULD RATHER KNOW THAT THE WEIGHT MEANS ITS MADE OF THICK QUALITY STEELE AND COMPONENTS VS THIN LIGHT WEIGHT MATERIAL'S .OVER ALL A VERY GOOD PRODUCT WITH NO ISSUES DEFIANTLY A GREAT PRODUCT.

  • Will the B&W Companion # BWRVK3300 Work With a Rotating Pin Box
    Yes, the Replacement Base for B&W Companion Hitch for Ford Super Duty, part # BWRVB3300, will work with your B&W Companion Head Assembly, part # BWRVC3006. Even though a rotating pin box is typically used for a truck bed that is shorter than 6 feet, it will work well with the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch. You can install the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit, part # RP30126, on your 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty to use with the Companion if you do not already have the factory prep package. If...

  • Solution for Older B and W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch that Has Developed Noise When Start/Stopping
    What you are experiencing is not ideal but it is normal. Over time from years of use some of the tolerances in your B and W Companion hitch head have become looser due to wear. So that creates a little bit of slop which you end up hearing and feeling as "chucking" like you described. It would be awesome if there was a way to adjust the jaws or something similar to get rid of it but the only solution is to replace the head with part # BWRVC3006. This will have the factory spec tolerances...

  • Recommended Sliding B&W Base For A 2022 Chevy Silverado Short Bed With Factory Pucks
    You are definitely in luck! The 20k B&W Companion ( # BWRVK3710) that you had in your 2020 Silverado 2500 uses the same head ( # BWRVC3006) as the new sliding option for your 2022 Silverado 2500 will. With that said, you will need the Slider Base for B&W Companion Slider # BWRVB3775. This will have the same 20,000 pound capacity and it will lock directly into the pucks in your new truck. The head will attach the exact same way as with your previous fixed model, so that will be quick and...

  • Replacement Hitch Head for B&W Companion Hitch Legs for 2011 Ram 3500
    If you've got the # BWRVB3500 then there is only a 25,000-lbs head available that is compatible with B&W Companion hitch systems; that replacement head is available with the Replacement Head Assembly for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVC3006. The 18,000-lbs head you referenced is only a fit for the B&W Patriot series hitches.

  • Replacement Head for B and W Companion Hitch that Fits Ford OEM Prep Package Pucks
    The correct Companion hitch head for the 20k # BWRVK3300 is the part # BWRVC3006 you mentioned which does have the higher weight capacity of 25k. Basically all the Companion hitches use the same head design and it's the bases that have the lower capacities. If you wanted the 25k capacity you'd have to go with a new hitch instead with the part # BWRVK3305.

  • Do Jaws of B and W Companion Hitch Head Require Adjustment
    The jaws of the B and W Replacement Head part # BWRVC3006 are not adjustable and they do not require tightening. It's a little annoying but most hitches have a little bit of movement which makes that clicking sound you mentioned.

  • Which B&W Companion Base Fits in 2021 Chevy Silverado 3500 Short Bed with OEM Pucks
    Yes. The head of a B&W Companion hitch # BWRVC3006 can be removed and switched to a new base, so you won't need to replace the entire hitch. If you need a sliding base, the 2021 Silverado 3500 OEM puck base for a B&W Companion hitch is the # BWRVB3775 or the standard base is # BWRVB3710.

  • Recommended Replacement Head Assembly for a B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch
    The correct head assembly for the Replacement Base for B&W Companion item # BWRVB3300 is going to be item # BWRVC3006. The Replacement Head Assembly item # BWRVC3006 will slide onto the A-style arms and secure with the included pins and clips.

  • Will The B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3400 Fit In a 2007 Ram 3500 Long Bed?
    The B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3400 will fit in your 2007 Ram 3500 8' long bed as long as you have a B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1313. Since you have the long bed you will not need to use the slider portion as it is only needed on short bed trucks to get the clearance needed for jackknife turns. We do have the Replacement Base # BWRVB3500 you can use with your Head # BWRVC3006 that way you will not have to lift the much heavier slider base in and...

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2019 Ford F-250 with a Long Bed
    I highly recommend using the B&W Companion to tow a 5th wheel hitch with your 2019 Ford F-250 long bed. This comes in 20K # BWRVK3300 and 25K # BWRVC3006 weight capacities depending on what you are needing to tow. The Companion features 3 different height settings, 1" thick dual jaws, and a fully articulating head that is easily removed to help make loading and unloading the hitch much easier. The head unit itself weighs in at about 70 lbs which is just under half the weight of the whole...

    I took a look for a replacement shock absorber, and a new leveling kit for your B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package # BWRVK3305, and unfortunately the leveling kit, as well as the shock absorber are only offered part of the: -Replacement Head Assembly for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVC3006. So since you need those parts, your best option is to install a new head assembly. I know this isn't what you're wanting to do, however this the best...

  • Will B&W Companion Hitch Head Fit With B&W Patriot Base
    The Replacement Head Assembly # BWRVC3006 is compatible with the B&W Companion hitches but not the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitches like what you have with part # BWRVK3200. Since you have the Patriot you will need the part # BWRVC3200 instead. The B&W Companion and Patriot 5th wheel hitches look similar and have the same basic features, but the way in which the head attaches to the base is different enough that you need a specific head depending on what hitch you have.

    The B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # BWRVK3500 has a binding issue with your king pin. The cam action latching handle sounds like it isn't functioning correctly. If the head has been damaged, I recommend replacing it.
