Quiet, Secure Ride

B&W Companion OEM Ram Jaw

The 1" thick jaw on the Companion OEM is precision machined to provide a tight, sturdy connection. And unlike slide-bar models, the rounded 2-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel trailer hitch inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping around your trailer's king pin, resulting in easier hookup and a safer, quieter ride.


B&W Companion OEM Ram Bushings

In addition to the sturdy jaw, the Companion has durable polyurethane bushings built in to provide a smoother, more comfortable towing experience. These bushings sit on top of the pivot arms that support the fifth-wheel head. Because the head is resting on a padded area, it is able to pivot without clanking. The ability of the head to pivot - both front to back and side to side - along with the trailer also helps to limit the chucking that may occur with a more static hitch.


Non-Binding Latch Handle

The dual jaw on the Companion OEM is operated by a simple-to-use cam-action handle. This handle allows you to quickly and easily release the jaws on the hitch, even if you are on uneven terrain. If any binding does occur between your truck and trailer, the jaws may remain closed after you move the handle to the open position. But because the handle is unlatched, there is nothing keeping the jaws closed except for the binding pressure. Therefore, simply driving your truck forward will be enough to force the jaws to open.


The cam-action handle is held in the closed position with the included pin and clip. For extra security, you can replace the pin with a sturdy padlock. The shackle on the lock you choose should have a diameter of 5/16", height of 3", and a width of 2-1/4".


Installation of the B&W Companion OEM

To install the Companion OEM, first set up the Companion's pivot arms. The arms are what allow the hitch to be adjusted front to back as well as up and down for optimal positioning. As a result, this hitch can accommodate the height of your trailer and also help to give you the cab clearance needed to execute turns while towing.


To adjust either the height of the hitch or the fore/aft positioning, just attach the hitch's pivot arms in the desired location on the base.


B&W Companion OEM Ram Feet

Then, when the hitch head is fully assembled, simply place the hitch in the bed of your truck, lining the base up with the receiver sockets in the bed. Rotate all 4 handles on the hitch base out so that the built-in puck receivers are in the correct position to install in the sockets. Once the base is lined up, fold the handles in until they are in the locked position and secure them with the included pins.


The hitch head installs on top of the pivot arms. When you have the head in position, simply secure it to the arms with the included pins.

I’m excited to tow with my new B&W hitch. Fits perfectly and assembly was a breeze. I like the amount of adjustment both vertically and horizontally. Locking the hitch to the frame with the puck system is great! Item shipped quickly and was packaged well! I’ll be ordering more products from etrailer!

I purchased this hitch to connect to the Chevy factory prepped 5th Wheel kit for a new 2017 Chev Silverado 3500 dually. My previous truck/ hitch combo (2015 Chev Silverado 3500 single axle 6.5’ bed w/ Reese Pro Series) used industry standard rails and there was quite a bit of movement in the entire hitch assembly and king pin area resulting in significant chucking on the horrible So. Cal. freeways. The B&W hitch was one of two recommended by the professionals at etrailer. I could not be happier. The hook-up is very easy & the overall operation of the hitch is much easier & simpler than my previous hitch. The 1” thick jaw makes a secure connection to the kingpin and the overall ride has smoothed out significantly. Great product so well liked that my son found a used one for sale and snapped it up for his rig.

I have a 2018 GMC 3500 6 1/2 foot bed with the factory fifth wheel prep package. I just bought this fifth wheel hitch and towed with it once but it fits perfectly and tows beautifully, is very well built and is USA made. MAGA!! I have it set over the axle and have plenty of clearance because of the tapered front cap on my trailer. No bucking of jerking like the Reese titan hitch I previously had although it was on a slider. Awesome hitch don't hesitate to buy it.

After 6 months to a year finding a hitch, I decided to purchase the B&W. I reviewed several, talked to fifth wheel owners on what hitch they had, and the majority recommended the B&W. From it's easy to install and remove (if needed), how the hitch is built, It's heavy duty and looks like it's a hitch and rated for the 20k pounds compared to others out there on the market today, great customer service from both B&W and etrailer, I went with it for that reason. Now, after a year of use and 2 dozen pulls or so with it, no complaints. Had to make a small adjustment to it, to stop the "porpoising" affect, and after that, I have a nice smooth ride while towing our Montana 3700LK.

I am very happy with the B&W companion for my GMC with the OEM puck system. It was easy to install and is going to work great on my truck. I was worried about clearance with my bakflip bedcover on my 6.5 bed but it all worked out great. The photos, videos and Q & A really helped me make good decision so etrailer is going to continue to get my busness.

I installed the hitch in my 2018 Chevy 3500HD DRW last night took around an hour. overall the quality is very good on the B&W Companion hitch and it fits into the factory puck system perfect. I have it set on the highest setting but still have to hook up 5th wheel to see if this is correct position or not to give me the correct clearance. Looking forward to trying it out this weekend. The package arrived on time and no damage.

Great Hitch, secure latching and quiet on the road. (No Chucking, unlike the bolt on hitch in my last truck). It is relatively easy to remove and re-install - I'm 67! I have a small problem Unhitching when there is any pressure between vehicles, the jaws will not let loose unless holding the release lever open as I pull away.

Outstanding customer service/support coupled with a great product at a great price...what more can you ask for? My hitch arrived with superb packaging and simple to follow instructions. Being super meticulous, I installed my hitch in a couple of hours. The Companion's design works fantastic with the OEM puck system in my new 2017 Silverado 3500HD Dually! Really looking forward to hooking up my new 5th wheel and hitting the road! If you are in the market for a new hitch, definitely consider the Made In America B&W Companion 3700 5th wheel hitch!

Purchased this per recommendation from Jared. This thing was a direct bolt in for my truck as he said it would be. Took me less than an hour to assemble and install. This hitch is incredibly heavy duty for my purposes of towing my new 5th wheel trailer. This thing is going to be instrumental over the next few years for me. Even took a picture with it looking good in my truck!

B&w hitches are the best heavy duty hitch that I have ever owned. They are 100% American made quality, and have towed many times with this hitch. It is very easy to use, and comes apartment to remove. The two pieces are light enough to remove instead of those one piece hitches. Ordering was very easy at etrailer, and shipping was very fast. I would never buy another hitch other than B&W.

I received my new B&W Companion Hitch Assembly and installed it on my new Truck. Perfect fit, and very easy to install. Plenty of clearance for my bed cover, so I can leave my hitch in place, when not in use. I appreciate the help from you guys in answering all of my questions, very helpful. I look forward to using my new hitch shortly. Thanks.

This is my first fifth wheel so I’m not sure what to expect out of a hitch. This hitch has worked flawless. I have a 2019 Chevy 3500hd pulling a 42 foot 12500 pound camper empty. It’s quiet and smooth. I have pulled it over my local train tracks and through the mountains of Tennesse without an issue. I have nothing bad to say about this hitch it does what I need it to do!! I will say I’m fairly particular about the equipment I buy, you get what you pay for, and this hitch has not let me down. I have done every thing from 100 mile weekend trips to a 1500 mile vacation with out an issue. You can separate it into two parts for a easy removal, if necessary, with the removal of a couple pins. This product doesn’t need pictures to show you what it does. If I ever get another truck I will be using a B & W hitch!!!

I have had my B&W Champion 5th hitch one year now. I couldn't be happier with it! It was quick and easy to install and has worked like a "Champ" pardon the pun. It captures the kingpin completely every time, it rides smoothly, and is low maintenance. I am a full-time RVer but have needed to remove the hitch a couple times to allow full use of the pickup bed and the hitch quickly breaks down into two pieces for easy removal and reinstallation.

This product is easy to install, easy to maintain and has excellent tow capacity. This hitch comes in various configurations to fit most major truck bed puck systems. The overall quality of the build is exceptional. I have now towed with this hitch over 9000 miles and have found the hitch to be easy to hookup and unhook from your rv/trailer. Because the head can easily be separated and removed From the base the base weight is very manageable. Removing the hitch honestly takes about five minutes. I have literary not experienced any chucking or bucking while towing. I have this hitch installed on a 2019 GMC 3500HD diesel Denali

This product is well built and easy to operate. We have experienced no bucking or chucking. Installed this in a GMC 3500HD Denali with the in bed puck system. I’m getting up in age and I’m not the biggest guy in the world but had no problem installing my self. Looking for a solid 5th wheel hitch this is the one.

I ask because there isn't a Patriot version that fits the factory puck system in any of the trucks that have that option (Ford, GM, Ram, or Nissan). If the hitch is # BWRVK3700 then it is a Companion model. If your 2019 Chevy Silverado 3500 is a long bed then yes, Companion hitch # BWRVK3700 does indeed fit the factory prep package in your new truck. If your truck is a short bed you would either need Companion slider...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 to Prevent Binding
    The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3700 is the better option for your concern on binding. The cam-action latching handle and fully articulating head work together to prevent binding and ease coupling and uncoupling of your king pin. The method in which the jaws work will be a better option than the Curt A25 # C16066 which has a similar coupling style to your Reese 16K. I also recommend using the 5th wheel wiring harness # 20110 to add a 7-way...

  • Are the Fifth Wheel Rail Kits for Chevy and GM Trucks Different Based on Bed Length
    There are two reasons the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3700 only shows up for the 8 foot bed models of the 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with the factory rail kit. Biggest reason is because the rail kits between the short and long bed GM rail kits are different dimensions so the hitch won't physically fit. Also because for a short bed truck you'd want to use a slider hitch to have enough turning clearance like the # BWRVK3770 which does fit and would work well. If you have a...

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 with Factory Rail Kit
    For your 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 with the factory rail kit I highly recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3700. The Companion line is considered by many to be the best hitches on the market and this particular model is designed to drop right into the factory pucks on your Sierra 2500. The hitch features 1 inch thick dual jaws that will provide an excellent connection with the trailer, a fully articulating head to ease hookup and help limit chucking, and has a 20,000 pound...

  • Correct Installation Height for B&W Companion BWRVK3700 5th Wheel Hitch
    Even if we know your specific trailer model you will still need to check the trailer height for adjusting the B&W Companion hitch's height in your Silverado 3500. Different wheel/tire sizes will affect the actual king pin height on the trailer. The Companion # BWRVK3700 offers 2-inches of adjustment range, with height from 16-3/4-inches to 18-3/4-inches. Please refer to the linked article and video.

  • Aftermarket or Factory 5th Wheel Package on 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500
    Given the option I'd choose the factory prep package in your new 2019 Chevy 2500. Mainly because this way your truck bed is clear when the hitch is removed. There are below bed kits available that do the same thing but they don't have an advantage over the factory kit. Unless you already have a hitch that fits above bed rails the factory kit is the way to go. For the hitch itself I recommend the B&W Companion, part # BWRVK3700. It fits the factory pucks in the Chevy's bed without...
