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.

6000 miles towing this year; loaded trailer weight 16,480 lbs (based on CAT scale weight tickets).
Hitch is awesome. Very secure with no noticeable chucking. I can remove and install this hitch by myself. The two pieces are very manageable.
My fifth B&W hitch over the years; 2 turnover ball goosenecks and 2 tow & stows. Quality hitches which I recommend highly.

Very happy with the B&W hitch we received. etrailer and their staff were excellent to work with. Shipping was sooner than projected. And the installation was extremely easy. Would absolutely use etrailer again as well as B&W products. Thank you all!

After getting to use the B&W hitch several times now with our 5th wheel this remains a great product. Very easy to take in-and-out of the truck when not in use. Easy hookup and disconnect to the trailer. Very smooth ride with very minimal chucking. We pull a 40 5th wheel toy hauler. As noted in original review, I would definitely recommend this hitch as well as purchasing from etrailer!

@Josh B&W really does make an excellent product. We're glad to hear you're happy with your # BWRVK3710 Companion 5th wheel hitch.

This hitch is easy to install and adjust, works great and handles my 16,800 GVWR 5th wheel very well. The only issue I have is finding locks for the handles. The paint is starting to peel in a few small places but after a year of use. I would highly recommend this hitch. its two pieces makes it easy to take out of the bed also!



by:

This is a top notch, very well built hitch. Dropped right in to my oem puck system on a 2024 Chev 2500 hd. The first hookup was so smooth that I wasn’t sure I was even on my kingpin.
E trailer had it delivered the next day from ordering!! The other important thing to note is this hitch takes up a 17” x 30” footprint which is way smaller than an Andersen base.

Great looking hitch and is somewhat lighter than the B&W Companion I had that was used with the gooseneck, but still rated at 20,000 lbs.

James

This is a great hitch. It is rock solid. I especially like it because the head comes off which makes it easier to handle for 74 year old man.

I think the product is great and will perform well for a lot of traveling!
However the packaging was in really bad shape when the hitch arrived. I am very, very surprised that nothing was scratched or missing!
Assembly was easy after watching the videos.

The hitch has worked out well. It’s Easy to hook up and remove and reinstall in the truck! It looks really good too. We’ve gone about 8000 miles towing with it.



by:
2024 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

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.

My only negative response is that the packaging. Hitch had a couple scratches due to it bouncing around while in transit. B&W should improve their packaging.

Easy installation - 2024 GMC HD3500 - follow the directions on part 2 there is a right way to install the mounting bars. The bottom piece 80 lbs and the top was 70 lbs. I needed to go buy some dry lube for the towers. Bolts torque to 110lbs. No issues.

We used this to haul our 5th wheel across the country, through the from MD to CO,UT, CA,OR, WA,ID, MT and round trip back to MD! This hitch worked extremely well! Highly recommend! Easy to put in and set up and easy to use!

This hitch is great. It is secure and doesn’t jerk around like my old hitch did. Chevrolet puck system is quick in and out. Two piece is a little heavy but I can do it easily and at 73 years old it is very doable. I love it. etrailer is great to work with.



by:

Like most say the packaging could be better. But it came without any scratches and looks awesome. Didn’t take long to install. Directions were easy. Can’t wait to try it out! As always, eTrailer rocks. Will continue to purchase from them.



by:

It’s great. But much heavier than my old PATRIOT hitch which was on rails.
It would be nice if B&W made an OEM hitch in the PATRIOT model because it would be lighter.

The OEM COMPANION hitch is really too heavy for me but we will work around it somehow.



by:

We just purchased a new 42’ fifth wheel and had to haul it home about 200 miles. Hitch was easy to assemble and install. It looks nice in the bed of our 3500HD Dually and even better … the ride with the new fifth wheel was very smooth! We would highly recommend. Also a side note, we did order the B&W Graphite Plate versus using grease … would highly recommend using the plate.



by:

Love this hitch. Robust. Easy to use. Being able to remove the head from base easily is great for installing and removal so you can make two lighter lifts when installing/removing.



by:

This hitch is everything we expected and more. Everything from talking to customer service about our concerns with buying a hitch to installing it was amazing. I would high recommend this hitch AND this company.

The hitch was easy to install it fit right into our Chevy pug holes and provides a nice smooth ride. Wish the handle was longer.

Second B&W hitch to own. The new truck came with the fifth wheel puck setup. Quality is second to none. Form fit and function as I have come to expect from B&W. Etrailer shipping was super fast and arrived in good condition.

    The new GM trucks do have a slightly longer standard/short bed at 6'9" compared to the 6'5" you typically find. With the tapered front you may be able to get away with not using a sliding hitch. The best way to figure this out would be to measure for your clearance.

  • Does 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500 with OEM Pucks Need Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch
