Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Just bought a new fifth wheel, but you have a horse trailer with a gooseneck too and want to be able to use the same truck to tow them
  • Are willing to pay a little more for the all-American craftsmanship that B&W is known for - this hitch is easy to use and looks good for years
  • Get nervous with automatic sliders and want total control over how and when the slider activates

No, if you:

  • Have a rotating pin box like a Sidewinder or Revolution on your 5th wheel trailer
  • Use a pop-in gooseneck ball - you need one that secures with a pin all the way through, like the Turnoverball from B&W
  • Navigate around tight corners often enough that getting out to operate the slider every time you need clearance gets to be a pain
The built-in slider on this sturdy 5th-wheel hitch helps eliminate clearance concerns during slow-speed turns. Dual jaws offer excellent jaw-to-king-pin contact. Hitch removes easily for full bed access. Call 800-298-1624 to order B and W fifth wheel hitch part number BWRVK3400-5W or order online at etrailer.com. Free expert support on all B and W products.

Simple Removal for Full Bed Access

B&W Companion Simple Removal

With the Companion from B&W, you get a heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch that mounts in your truck bed by connecting directly to a custom underbed mounting kit (sold separately) with the included components. No modifications are required to your truck or trailer. And no additional parts are required for the system to work. When you're done towing, the entire hitch can be removed for complete bed access.


Quiet, Secure Ride

The 1" thick jaw on the Companion 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 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 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".


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 Companion allows for 12" of fore and aft travel to give you the clearance you need.


Assembly of the B&W Companion

The Companion's pivot 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 some additional cab clearance. 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.


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.

This this is heavy and strong. The only thing that did not meet my expectation is the draw down bolt prevents the hitch from being removed by simply opening the gooseneck locking pin. But the drawdown bolt keeps this hitch quite in the bed and tight, no rattling when unloaded! Great product and customer support!


Comments
After a year of use this is still an outstanding hitch. It is sturdy and solid. No issues at all. Very pleased with my purchase.

Too heavy for one person to install unless you did what I had to do (alone without any help). Removed the bolt from the tailgate end of the roller tubes, pulled the tubes out and separated the upper assemble from the lower bed contact assembly. Doing that allowed me to lift each piece into the bed without tracking down a neighbor.

When I would call distasteful is slapping a label on the product and saying it shipped for three days. When the labeling on December 30th. And the hitch was not shipped or in the carriers position until January 3, 2022. And the carrier that was responsible for shipping it did not put a tracking number or activity on their website for at least three days. And when they did text Showed that it went to Chicago the opposite direction. And when it got to Sioux Falls they said their third party Carrier had to take this item. And I talk to the carrier that each trailer hired and they said we have to wait until we get enough stuff in the trailer before we can go that direction anymore. I asked them when that would be and they said they don't have a date until they start getting the trailer full, because we don't have much stuff it goes that direction in your small city ! So I made arrangements to meet them 60 miles from where we're at pick it up and bring it back where was supposed to be shipped in the first place. As far as the product it has not been put to use as of yet. This one star is for the service that was received. Very disappointing.

Hitch is exactly what we needed for our 40’ fifth wheel and our duramax truck. Highly recommend etrailer and working with Adam if you call in. He was awesome and I still remember how much he helped us and it was a year ago. Good service stands out.

I've had this for a year now, and use it in a '17 F250 short bed. #1 it is heavy, #2 get the lifting ring that locks in the jaws for easier removal. This one fits in my Turnover ball hitch. I've not had to use the slide for maneuvering around turns. With the arms set towards the rear, I can go almost 90 degrees with my Puma. I have used the slide to make hooking up easier. For instance, with the slide to the rear, I can hook up without worrying about the tail gate being down. I can also open the front compartment on the camper all the way. Although I think I would have been OK with the non slide, I'm glad I went ahead and purchased this one. Only 4 stars because sometimes the slide handle doesn't automatically lock down when changing positions.

The new hitch arrived in good condition and packed well. I had it installed within 2 hours with no problems. I tend to gauge a good product, especially when made in the USA, by its appearance and weight, but I also noticed the welds and paint as something you can't get anywhere else but in the US. I look forward to using it and adding to my review.

Excellent hitch. If your truck doesn't come with factory 5th wheel hitch prep, the combination of the turnover ball and this hitch works like a charm. Easy to connect to truck and disconnect. Towed for hundreds of miles. Highly recommend.

I haven't used the products yet, but the B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch came on a pallet and was not damaged at all. It's in the truck and ready to go. Looks great!


Comments
I still really like this 5th wheel. It is very nice to be able to make much sharper turns with a short bed pickup. It is also much more stable than the previous hitch. I think that is due to torqueing the hitch down to the pin, although doing so makes it more of a pain to install and remove. Lastly, get an overhead hoist and a $12 movers dolly. The combination makes installation, removal, and moving around a one man job.

The hitch works great and the slider has got me in and out of a couple of tight places that I have found myself in. The hitch is heavy and takes up a lot of real estate in my bed but I don’t think that’s a bad thing when pulling a 15k 40ft 5th wheel. Easy to operate and locks up tight and secure. Great product as expected.


Comments
Still works great. Have taken quite a few trips around my state and a nice trip to the beach. This hitch has allowed me to get into places that I shouldn’t and get out of those place I dang sure shouldn’t have tried to fit.

The hitch is very heavy. It’s been in the truck since first installed. When I slide it with the weight of the trailer on it it hangs up and very violent when it slides. If i take the weight off it slides fine

The B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider does weigh 287 lbs so it is on the heavier side. It is designed to be a heavy duty durable hitch. B&W does make the lifting device part # BWRVXA3130

to help you lift it out of your truck bed with a hoist such as part # 310-VRJ001

. This hitch is also designed with one of the best jaw designs on the market so the chucking is not common with this hitch. This can sometimes be a trailer brake issue. I recommend you increase the braking gain on the controller which can help prevent the trailer from chucking.

Very Good, just wish I had got without slider as never use this part. When I tried to use it it would the fifth wheel would hit to of tail gate. I have no problem at cab of truck when forward. E trailer is my first choice when I make a purchase for my truck.

Just started 5th wheel camping and wanted a hitch that when removed left my truck box bare. I also talked to alot of people who talked about clunking and noise from their hitch while towing. I bought a 2013 32' Coachman which is pushing my 2009 F150 to its max. When pulling with this hitch it feels like the truck and trailer are one unit. No noise and no slop between the two units. I made a lifting pin that goes into the jaws and lifts it out with a comealong hooked to a rafter support in my garage. I then put it onto a wheel cart I made. No heavy lifting and one person can do it all. I've had one teflon foot fall of the hitch and the service was amazing no questions, no pictures, and no waiting. New piece was sent right away. Anyone who tows now and has looked at the hit are very impressed. I would definitly recomend this hitch to everyone.

I've had this for about a year. Only have about 2,000 miles of use with a 13,000 lbs 5th wheel travel trailer. It is still like new. Jaws are tight, no rattles with or without the trailer attached. I use a nylon guide plate, to keep things clean. The only issue is the slider will not unlatch from the locked position with the trailer attached. Unlatch and slides fine when not loaded. Just haven't made the time to talk to B&W about this. The base is a heavy bugger, and fits snug in the receptical. I've lifted it in and out myself, but not a smart idea. Overall I would buy again. For our use, where we need the whole bed the majority of time it is an easy solution.


Comments
Youll want to make sure that the slider rails are lubricated. Also keep in mind that if the truck and trailer are at different angles and theres a lot of pressure placed on the sliding mechanism, it can bind.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 02/27/2019

Comments
A year later, and it still works the same. Slider still doesnt work. but havent needed it. One thing I have learned is to make sure the lug from the attachment is lubricated before placed into the receiver. After about 8 months of being in the bed, I tried to remove it. Whoah! That was a son of a gun. Finally got it to break free, and then it lifted out. both the lug of the companion hitch, and the receiver of the B&W are nicely powder coated. that powder coating locked together. Nothing patience and a pry bar couldnt fix. But I dont want a repeat. Over all, I may look at something easier for our next travel season.

  • Does Bed Liner of Truck Need to be Removed to Install B and W Companion Hitch
    If you have a bedliner it's going to need to be trimmed to install the B and W Companion # BWRVK3400. It needs to make a solid connection to the bed of your truck and if you have a slide in bed liner that would get in the way.

  • Difference Between B&W Companion Slider Hitch BWRVK3400 and BWRVK3400-5W
    There is no difference at all between the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3400 and the # BWRVK3400-5W. We use the -5W at the end of the part number to allow the hitch to show up in two different fitguides. One for the gooseneck fitguide and then one for the fifth wheel fitguide. The Companion setups are considered by many to be the nicest fifth wheel hitch around. The Companion slider is going to be a much better option than using an adapter to use the stationary Pro Series hitch.

  • Is it Okay to Raise Front of Fifth Wheel Trailer to Gain Tonneau Cover Clearance
    The only way it's going to be advisable to raise the height of your hitch setup to put the pin box at a higher height is going to be if your fifth wheel trailer is sitting nose low currently. I know you need an inch of additional height but if your trailer is going to be sitting nose high with that additional height added we can't recommend you do that since it would cause handling issues most likely. If your Andersen is at it's highest setting though and the Companion part # BWRVK3400...

  • What To Consider to Set Fifth Wheel Hitch Height
    The thing about the hitch height is that it will depend on the trailer. So without having the trailer in front of you there is no way to know exactly what height setting you will need. The goal is to have the trailer sit as level as possible. Until you have the trailer in front of you and can determine what height setting will be needed to tow the trailer level there's no way to know what your ideal height setting would be.

    To safely execute a 90 degree turn you want at least 4 inches of clearance between the truck cab and trailer. The head of the # BWRVK3400-5W is adjustable from front to back so you may be able to adjust it back a little bit for better clearance while pulling out of your driveway.
