Quiet, Secure Ride

The 3/4" thick jaw on the Patriot 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.

In addition to the sturdy jaw, the Patriot 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 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 Patriot 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".

Easily Adjustable Design

The B&W Patriot can be adjusted up and down for optimal positioning. As a result, this hitch can easily accommodate the height of your trailer.

Built-In Slider

Most often used on trucks with 6' beds, a slider helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a slider to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.

The slider that is built into the base of the Patriot allows for 12" of fore and aft travel to give you the clearance you need.

Tech assistance with questions and ordering process was great. I will use etrailer again and will recommend them to others. Unit is solid and well built, just as advertised. Assembly and installation was straightforward but prepare for lifting help as the base unit is quite heavy. This is a replacement upgrade and I can't wait for weather to get better and go camping.

After a full year I am very satisfied with this B&W 5th wheel hitch, solid latching and quiet, no slop operation.

The dealer suggested I install the Reese 16K hitch when I purchased my fifth wheel RV. After two years of chucking and aggravation I decided to sell the fifth wheel. While I was shopping for a smaller conventional tow trailer, I ran across reviews of the B&W hitch. The Patriot 5th wheel hitch w/Slider eliminated most of my chucking issues. Thanks to etrailer and reviews from customers!!! My wife and I have decided to keep our fifth wheel RV.

- BWRVK3270

Product outstanding, customer relationship most professional. The product is exactly as advertised. All of its characteristics have been utilized and work well. Definitely met my expectations and looking to use the Patriot 18K for years to come. It far and away out performs my previous 5th wheel. Great value.

Peter G - 08/26/2021

- BWRVK3270

Hitch is superb. I've used it two or three times, no clunk when you start or stop. Slider works well and makes hooking up much easier. Have not needed to use it to park the trailer as I have more room between the cab and trailer. I'd buy this again. A bit heavy for an old guy to lift but I have a tractor to assist with getting it in the truck bed. Pulling a 35 foot toy hauler with it.

- BWRVK3270

Easy installation and we pulled our 45' fifth wheel camper over 6000 miles this year. Works great!

- BWRVK3270

Excellent hitch. Strong and stable. I use the slide in the rear position to make seeing the beavertail visible from the cab when backing in to hook up.

- BWRVK3270

The B & W Patriot is a great looking & solidly built 5th wheel hitch! The installation only took about 1 hour. The most difficult part of the install was getting the hitch base lifted into the bed of my truck.

- BWRVK3270

A real gem - so easy to use. After owning a poorly designed hitch that was a true headache the B & W Patriot hitch felt like a lifesaver. Everything attaches easily and securely. No problems and no worries when traveling. Thank You

- BWRVK3270

This hitch is great. I kind of wish I would have got the auto slider, but the manual option suffices and it was much cheaper. Just a matter of getting out to slap the lever back or forward. No big deal.

Love this hitch, and love, great people to work with!

Amazing, best hitch on the market for a 5th wheel.
Chip R - 04/03/2021

Excellent hitch! We go camping about every 4 to 6 weeks (year round) for 3 to 5 days at a time. This hitch is so easy to operate!

- BWRVK3270

Very nice and solid 5th wheel hitch. Very quiet when towing. One important comment: I have a 2019 Chevrolet Crew Cab with 6ft 6 in bed. I am towing a 2019 Grand Design Reflection 5th wheel. Dealership installed the hitch. I seem to have clearance between the cab and 5th wheel when 90 degrees from one another. The 5th wheel hitch overhang will hit the tailgate of the truck when sliding back to locking position. I think its about a 3 inch interference, Make sure you check this by lowering your tailgate before sliding into parking position.

- BWRVK3270

Item arrived with parts missing. When I contacted etrailer about the issue the quickly resolved it and sent the missing parts. The hitch assembled easily in about an hour.

- BWRVK3270

The etrailer experts are a great resource. I requested information on what hitch would be best for my truck and situation. With the advice of an expert I felt confident in making this purchase and I am confident that this hitch will serve me well.

- BWRVK3270

Excellent hitch only complaint I have is when you need to slide it sometimes you have to put something on the lever to get it to stay back until it moves but then it locks right in.

- BWRVK3270

Great product excellent service.I will continue to purchase from

- BWRVK3270

Very good hitch . I am completely satisfied and would recommend to anyone.

Best hitch I have had experience with. Works very well and I would recommend to anyone..
James - 03/06/2021

- BWRVK3270

Great product and service B&W built in USA and great quality but very heavy

Many folks will use a chain hoist and a lifting bracket like # DM6100
Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket
to make installing and removing the hitch easier.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 07/27/2019

- BWRVK3270

Have had this hitch for about a year now. Well worth the price. Dramatically reduced chucking and the slide works smoothly.

- BWRVK3270

I love this unit on my megacab ram 2500 because it gives you the extra room in the back to hook up and turn sharp on top of an easy install.

- BWRVK3270

This thing is made tough! It slides very nicely also. I just mounted everything in the middle holes and it measured about correct. The only advise I would give in using the slide is when you lift the handle and move the slide always make sure the handle is bake in the down position before you do any thing else.. The first time we detached it was moved in the back position. When I pulled forward the trailer dropped about a inch and the slide slid forward and scared the crap out of us. since then we make sure the handle is locked in the down position and no more scary moments.

- BWRVK3270

This in my opinion is the best slider hitch on the market, just simply push the lever, lock the trailer brake and pull forward, the hitch slides with absolutely no effort, and hooking up is just as easy.

Absolutely fantastic
Marty L - 11/17/2019

- BWRVK3270

Release handle a bit tuff to reach on a level lifted 4x4. Even though im 6'2". Pro. this hitch doesn't rattle like my curt 20k Con. Large foot print

- BWRVK3270

I use the B&W Patriot in a 2015 2500 Ram 6.5 box, with a Reese adapter for the factory puck system. I already had the Reese adapter so went this route. The Patriot works as it should. Make sure you use some lithium grease on the slides, makes it much easier to slide. I like that you can remove the head, makes it lighter to take out of the truck. I had to purchase longer pins for my set up. It has a very good locking mechanism. It is easy to hitch and unhitch the 5th wheel camper. A good value for the dollar. Made in America.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ram 3500 with Short Bed to Tow Grand Design Solitude 310GK
    I'll start by saying that because you have a short bed truck, you will need a sliding hitch in order to make sure that you can safely turn while towing your 5th wheel trailer and not create contact between the nose of your trailer and the cab of your truck. You can also accomplish this by going with a Sidewinder style pin box like the Reese # RP34FR, but I typically only like to recommend those on truck beds shorter than 6-ft or 5th wheel trailers with extremely protruding noses.
