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".


Assembly of the B&W Companion

To install the Companion, first bolt the included RV post to the Companion's base. This post is what inserts into the hole in your truck bed. The RV post attaches to the base in 1 of 2 ways to allow for improved cab clearance and proper positioning over your truck's axle.


The next step is to 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.


Companion 3500 Base Diagram

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 above diagram gives an indication of where to mount the arms so that you get the height and the cab clearance that you need.


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.

B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs - BWRVK3500-5W

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (3635 Customer Reviews)

I wanted to be able to easily utilize my truck bed and this hitch provides that in spades! Easy to remove and install. I absolutely have to give a shout out to Paula on customer service. She was amazing! My first shipment was damaged and missing a vital part. Paula had another one shipped right away and made my return shipment a breeze. She stayed in contact with me to the end. I felt like she shared in my joy once the install was complete! The hitch is super adjustable for optimal placement in the bed and height of the trailer. Make a few quick measurements and it just goes together quickly. Love the dual jaw release lever. Our last 5th wheel hitch had the standard pull to release lever and it was often very difficult to operate. This lever style is a game changer. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with the product and customer service!

One year later and zero complaints. The hitch operates smoothly with no signs of wear. Still very pleased! My 5th wheel weighs in around 15,500lbs loaded and we even pull a golf cart trailer behind occasionally. I have no reservations using this hitch.



by:

I installed this system in my classic square body Silverado after installing the Turnover Ball BK1400 gooseneck hitch. Both work great together and this companion installed beautifully. I tow a 40’ Cougar camper with it.



by:

Great design and sturdy! I just is on a 2021 ram 2500 6.4 8' bed installing when great, nothing a single person can't handle. I would recommend to anyone.



by:

Arrived damaged, not from the delivery process but shipped this way. Extremely heavy and a hassle to return and exchange.This is the second product from etrailer that I have received that was damaged. The led lights of a previous order were also damaged.



by:

The construction of this hitch is very heavy duty. The reason I gave this a low rating was due to the condition it was in when it arrived. There were parts missing. One of the handles that releases the upper hitch from the base was bent. There were numerous chips and deep scratches in the paint. For the amount of money I spent on this hitch I expected it to be brand new and undamaged. I sent emails with pictures to etrailer, they were supposed to issue me a credit but I never heard back from them.

Just finished installing my B&W Companion 5th Wheel hitch. I hooked to my RV to check my instillation, everything went very smooth.
I would recommend this hitch to anyone with a Gooseneck turnover ball B&W hitch installed in there truck bed. Great product, very easy instillation.

This hitch is working out great. Easy to take out and put in. Two of my friends have purchased this hitch after seeing how great they work. Love my hitch!



by:

This part of the installation is easy. There are two main pieces. Fasten runners on the bottom of each of the two legs that sit in the bed grooves. Attach the large square pin that goes in the hole in the bed to the main base(there are several bolting patterns depending on where you want the 5th wheel assembly to sit in the bed) and set it in place. Item is heavy even without the upper part (5th wheel plate assembly). Best done by two people. 5th wheel plate assembly also heavy, but can be handled by one person. The directions are clear, easy to understand. Very nice clean setup.

Product has worked fine. Ive towed over 5,000 miles with it this year and have had absolutely no problems with the hitch what so ever.



by:

This is a fantastic product! It was recommended to me by five other people, and now that I have it, I see why. The quality is second to none. I did the installation myself, thanks to the instructions included and the excellent videos on the etrailer.com website. Took me a bit longer than the instructions indicated, but mechanical stuff always takes longer than expected for me. Big fan of this product and of etrailer.com. Consistent quality in information and products. Thank you.



by:

I installed this directly after installing the underbed turnoverball gooseneck hitch, and it was an easy install. Very well written instructions. Equipment looks robust, top notch welds, nice thick powder coat.

Great product. Works flawlessly.



by:

We received our new BW Companion hitch on time. Noticed that our BW Turnover Ball hitch already installed in truck required a shorter socket post one week out from our trip. With a quick discussion with the great people at etrailer as well as BW, we had the new socket post shipped and installed prior to leaving town. Easy install - All worked as designed. So glad to have responsive parties involved here to help us out. Thanks!

Really like it. No issues at all. Haven't tryed the gooseneck part but I have faith in B& W Hitches.

Still just fine and trouble free.

I would like to say that I was not looking forward to putting this hitch on my truck. I heard nothing but nightmares and horror stories, but it couldn't be farther from the truth. I had a friend come over to help (glad I did cause that turnoverball hitch would have been a bear to hold up by yourself. It was ten times easier than I would have imagined. Just follow the instructions and it's a piece of cake. We had the turnover all hitch on in less than 2 hours. Unfortunately I had a rusted brake line that I had to repair before completing the job. Haven't used it yet but can't wait to hitch it up and hit the road. Thanks for making this hitch so easy to install. I'm glad it's American made and extremely heavy duty.



by:

I recently bought the gooseneck and fifth wheel b&w hitches to install on my 2008 f 250. I could not be more happy with the products and customer service that etrailer provides. I also bought The Pollack t connector that was also easy to use. The install was done at home and easy to understand. Thanks again.



by:

It’s ingenious and only takes a little time to remove or reinstall especially when you’ve already installed a b&w turnover years prior to needing a fithwheel attachment. Great product.



by:

Build quality was great and it looks perfect. My only issue is they should supply hard washers and better quality lock washers. 2 of them bent so bad I had to remove them and file the heads to get the huge burrs off to tru to seat another one. If you supply high strength bolts you need to supply a higher grade lock washer it it just tears up the power coat .

I am sorry that your questions were not answered. Customer Service will be in contact with you.

I haven’t pull the 5th wheeler yet, but the B&W Companion is a super heavy duty hitch and it looks like it will handle the job. The installation of the hitch went well. The instructions were pretty straight forward. No problems.



by:

When I purchased my truck, it came with a B&W turnover ball as a dealer-installed add-on. Since that was already installed, adding the companion 5th wheel hitch to tow my trailer was a bit of a no-brainer. Setting up the bottom half was easy, but it took me a few attempts to get the appropriate location for height/center of gravity. Once I found the sweet spot, it really made a big difference for ride quality and stability.

Stability is the key word. This is not a light-weight hitch, so if you’re a half-ton truck guy and need to save as much weight as possible, this may not be the hitch for you. However, if you have the payload capacity and want a nice a stable towing experience, this hitch has done well with strong crosswinds, rough roads, and hard braking. The roll dampening works well without feeling mushy. While there’s no denying that a trailer is connected, it’s a good blend of feedback without any jarring, or porpoising. Also, I haven’t had any rattles, squeaks, or grinding sounds come from the hitch.

I only have one 5th wheel trailer which is a 40 foot RV that weighs about 14,500 lbs. I’ve always used a graphite lubrication plate, and use the recommended lubrication for the other components before each trip. The only issue that I’ve had with this set up, is that somehow, one of the pins that secure the upper and lower assemblies together came loose. I don’t believe that this was any sort of manufacturing defect and was likely a result of something snagging the retaining clip while loading/unloading. The remaining pin was able to hold on to it for a couple hundred miles until I noticed it during a fuel stop. I haven’t had any issues with it since.

I don’t remove the hitch very often (having the hitch in the back is a great excuse for not having to haul your non-truck friends’ stuff). But when I do remove it, I’m able to do it without any assistance, especially because it can be separated into two assemblies. A particular feature that I like is the spring-loaded mechanism for keeping the main bolt from loosening after you appropriately torque it down.

The only reason that I didn’t give it 5 stars is the powder coating. The powder coating on parts of the lower assembly had separated from the steel after only a few months. I don’t pressure wash the truck, nor do I live in an area with a lot of rain or salted roads. The upper assembly is fine, but the sharp corners of the lower assembly’s powder coating just didn’t stick.

Powder coating aside, the only recommendation I have for B&W would be to increase safety by adding some sort of indicators to show that everything is properly coupled and ready for the locking pin. While I haven’t had any problems hitching the trailer, having the “warm-fuzzy” of something like a green-means-good indication goes a long way, especially when hitching up a trailer with your significant other.

I am very happy with this Companion Hitch. I installed it by myself without any issues. It performs very well and it looks great. I received a lot of compliments at the RV park. From ordering to delivery everything went very smooth.

Thank You



by:

Hitch arrived exactly when it was expected to. Well packaged and no damage. The hitch was easy to assemble and the how-to video on the product page was extremely easy to follow. No skipped steps like half the install videos you find online. I just bought my 5th wheel and today was my first time ever pulling a 5th wheel. No bucking or rough ride like a bumper pull or traditional gooseneck. So glad I spent the extra money on an actual 5th wheel hitch instead of doing the gooseneck conversion I was thinking about doing.



by:

Received my companion hitch in two days. Free delivery. Couldn’t believe how fast it shipped. I installed it myself in 3 hours. The hitch is rock solid and built heavy. I can’t wait to hook on to my camper and try it out. It is very easy to install. A second person would be useful to set base.



by:

I love my B&W filth wheel, I do commercial hauling from factories to dealerships all over the U.S. and I travel 4000 plus miles each week. My B&W filth wheel has never let me down and the double locking jaw is awesome. I get a lot of good comments on my filth wheel and I just tell it like it is, I love it and wouldn’t want any other.



by:

Ordered the companion hitch to use with the turnover hitch that I also purchased from etrailer. Shipped quickly and was easy to install and adjust for my setup. Item arrived in perfect condition.

  • Difference Between B&W Companion Part Numbers # BWRVK3500 and # BWRVK3500-5W
    There is no difference between B&W Companion part numbers # BWRVK3500 and # BWRVK3500-5W. We just have slightly different part numbers for the same hitch which allows it to show up in two categories through our fit guide. The 5W just stands for fifth wheel.

  • Are the Plastic Foot Pads of the B and W Companion Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W Required
    The included foot pads of that come with the B and W Companion Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W are designed to be used regardless if there is corrugation on the truck bed or not. The shape of them does allow them to fit in corrugation if needed which is nice. If you weren't to use them the hitch wouldn't make contact with the truck bed to support the load of the trailer. The only contact point would be with the gooseneck ball. Since you don't have corrugation you will want to mount the pad with the...

  • Can B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Be Used with Plastic Bedliner
    I checked with B&W and with the Companion hitch # BWRVK3500-5W you would either need to remove the bedliner or trim it in the footprint of the entire base so it will have direct contact with the bed. The reason for this is because a slide-in bedliner can move around some and you do not want that happening when towing a 5th wheel trailer! I linked a video review of the Companion for you.

  • B and W Companion Hitch with Loose Assembly Bolts
    It's not a common problem that we've seen with any of the hitches we carry where the bolt torque is way too low, especially the Companion hitches. I'd say it was a fluke situation but I would keep an eye on it closer now. Maybe check the torque spec after the next couple times you tow just to make sure everything stays where it needs to be and then if it appears stable maybe check a couple times per year.

  • Is there a Difference Between B and W Companion Hitch BWRVK3500 and BWRVK35
    The two part numbers you mentioned would be representative of the same thing. The bwrvk35 isn't a standard B and W part number so the part # BWRVK3500-5W would be what you are looking for which is a 20k B and W Companion Slider hitch. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Figuring Out Where To Place the Pivot Arms On B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch
    The height determination for the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W is determined by measuring from the top of your truck bed floor to the ground, and then from the pin box to the ground when parked on a level surface. The way the arms are angled though is just going to depend on the clearance you need, which is at least 5 inches from the back of your truck to the closest part of your trailer.

  • Troubleshooting Installation of B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    It is possible to over torque hardware on the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # BWRVK3500-5W and bend that pin. When I talked with B&W about this issue they stated that torque specs are listed as a dry torque setting, if lubricant was used that will effect the torque value. They suggested that you examine the pin from under the vehicle to identify if bent. Another indication of possible damage is if in removing the unit it is difficult or impossible then yes it is damaged.

  • Will B&W Companion Fit a 2011 Ram 3500 with a Plastic Duraline Bed Liner
    We have talked to B&W before and they recommend either removing the plastic bed liner or cutting out the bed liner where the Companion Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W will rest so the hitch has the best surface to set on. Also the weight of a coupled trailer could damage the bed liner and it is possible that the bed liner would prevent the hitch from dropping down far enough to secure in the gooseneck ball hole.

  • Does The B&W Companion Require Additional Foot Pads Once Installed
    The B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W should have long plastic foot pads that fit into the slats of a corrugated bed, but there should not be the need of any other kind of pad. With that said, the long plastic foot pads should be used even if the base looks to be sitting properly. These limit/prevent side to side and front to back movement so not all the weight and stress are on the gooseneck hitch.

  • Can B&W Companion Hitch on Long Bed Truck be Used with Reese Sidewinder/Revolution
    If your 2018 Ram 3500 has the long bed (8 feet), you should be able to simply lock out the Revolution King Pin on your new trailer. The reason the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500-5W isn't compatible with the Sidewinder/Revolution is simply because it changes the pivot point of the king pin. With a long bed truck, you won't actually need this extended pivot point, so it can be simply locked out so that it does not pivot at the turret. This will make it so the only pivot point is at the hitch itself,...

These foot pads are only manufactured by B&W for the BWRVK3500-5W hitch that fits any truck with the turnover ball.

  • Bed Liner Compatibility with B & W Fifth Wheel Hitch
    I called B & W to double check, and they recommend either removing the plastic bed liner or cutting out the liner where the Companion Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W will rest. This is so the hitch has the best possible surface to rest on. Additionally, the fifth wheel trailer hitch would likely crush the plastic bed liner. The liner could also prevent the hitch from inserting into the gooseneck hitch. A spray-in bed liner will not present a problem for a fifth wheel trailer hitch.

  • Companion Hitch Recommendation to Replace Older Style Companion with Lower Capacity
    I wish I could say yes, but you're going to have to replace the entire hitch and not just the base of the Companion.

So to get the additional capacity you will need to go with the part # BWRVK3500-5W.
