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

Yes, if you:

  • 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
  • Take the time to make sure you hitch is in the optimal spot and like having adjustments not only for the height but also forward and back
  • Get nervous with automatic sliders and want total control over how and when the slider activates

No, if you:

  • Navigate around very tight corners often enough that getting out to operate the slider every time you need clearance gets to be a pain
  • Use your truck bed for hauling other things where you'll be lifting the hitch in and out regularly - all told, this hitch weighs about 300 lbs
  • Travel over very rough roads and want extra cushion in the head to absorb road shock
Specially designed to attach to the receivers in your factory 5th-wheel towing prep package, the slider base on this hitch helps eliminate clearance concerns during slow-speed turns. Dual-jaw hitch removes without a trace for full bed access. Call 800-298-1624 to order B and W fifth wheel hitch part number BWRVK3670 or order online at etrailer.com.

Notes:

  • This fifth-wheel trailer hitch is not compatible with Sidewinder or Revolution king pins. Do not use any device that changes the pivot point of your trailer's king pin with this hitch.

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.


Installation of the B&W Companion OEM Slider

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 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.


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.

Nice 5th wheel hitch. Fits into to the new puck system for pickups. The appearance is nice and clean, and very easy to use. No question if the king pin is captured or not as you get a clean view of it and the jaws cover the whole pin. The only downfall is the weight but then it is a 20K lbs. slider. etrailer was very helpful in assuring that the hitch was shipped and delivered ASP.


Comments
The hitch continues to function without issue. Nice clean design and shows little if any wear at all. I would strongly recommend this hitch.

The product was perfect and as described by B&W. The issue was shipping. I feel like I had to call and call and track down. I order 18th jan, said I'd receive by the 2nd feb order was shipped the 1st, after many phone calls and running around I was able to pick up my package from a 3rd party shipper at their yard. Ups has no clue where your shipment is the pro number they give you will not tell you where your package is. I finally got my hitch on the 12th feb. Had 2 days to install before I had to make a trip to use it. Will never purchase from this company again

I am very pleased with this hitch, it fit into the prepped bed of my 2016, 2500 Ram perfectly. This is one heavy duty hitch, made very well. The people at B&W definitely know how to make a hitch. It is heavy (weight wise) but I use a overhead winch to lift in and out of my truck bed, works great. I wanted the best and with this hitch I got it.


Comments
Still works great after 13,000 miles towing with this hitch over varied roads. Would buy again if need.

Zero adjustments needed to the pilot assembly, base aligned perfectly and dropped right in. Made minor tension adjustments to 2 latch cams with castle nut. Easy assembly, slider moves easily with just hand pressure. Great product! Looking forward to pulling our 36’ fifth wheel with the new hitch.


Comments
Fifth wheel hitch I purchased a year ago is working fine. Still no slack in jaws, hook up and unhook is a breeze. Highly recommend to anyone looking to buy a fifth wheel hitch.

etrailer... Two enthusiastic thumbs up. Responsive. Reasonably priced. Good follow-up. B&W 5th wheel slider hitch for 2020 Ram with pucks... Received yesterday. Just returned from a 700 mile trip. Could not be more impressed. Yes, the assembly is very heavy and even possibly over-built. But, that is peace of mind knowing that everything is going to function without issue. Everything went well. Quiet, other than heavy, easy to install. Easy to hook up to trailer. Does not make banging noises when in use. Overall a very satisfied owner.

Still very pleased with my decision to buy B&W, and etrailer is and will be my go-to.

Dodge Ram Pickup

This hitch has been excellent and foolproof. I have had no real problems at all with the B&W Companion Ram puck slider hitch. I would warn others that with the 6'4" bed, even having sufficient over-bed-rail clearance, it is still possible, with the hitch in the slide-back position, to have pinbox contact with the inside of the tailgate in certain situations where the trailer is lower than the tuck. I scuffed up the plastic tailgate cap, but did no physical tailgate damage. My only regret with this hitch is in purchasing it from eTrailer. They did NOT stand behind their "low price guarantee" when I found it for less at a local vendor. Instead, they told me that they were unable to "set up an account" with the vendor to verify the lower price. This is a brick-and-mortar trailer store that can easily be called to verify their advertised prices. I will not purchase from etrailer again.

Easy to install if you are comfortable drilling holes into your metal bed. Is just 1 hole, 2 inches. Plug and play. Haven't connected trailer but i have no reason to think it won't work.

This fifth wheel hitch performs exactly as described! We pull a 35' fifth wheel camper, and connection and disconnection with the b and w hitch is seamless. I highly recommend the sliding fifth wheel hitch if you are towing with a standard 6' bed truck. It has really helped with the ability to maneuver in tight spaces where a standard hitch wouldn't work.

This is my first 5th Wheel Hitch. Overall, I'm happy with it. It was easy to install and fits nicely under my truck bed cover. My only complaint is that it when sliding it forward and back into and out of maneuver mode, it is a litte stiff and I have to be real deliberate about stopping every few inches of travel so it doesn't bang against the backstops and cause the trailer to lurch. Rides smoothly and hook up is easy!

Except for being heavy this hitch couldn’t be easier to install! I needed help getting the base into the truck. So far I’ve only pulled our trailer about 60 miles. It was very very smooth, no chucking, easy to hook and unhook! Looking forward to years of reliable use.

I am an Engineer by trade and started my career as a machinist. I did an extensive amount of research before selecting this hitch. Due to Covid I had to wait a little bit but etrailer was able to get this hitch and kept me posted with status all the way through the process. This is by far one of the best and most secure hitches on the market. It's HEAVY and that's a good thing. Your towing a 5th wheel and this is the hitch that I want if something was to go wrong. I'm sure many hitches are fine under normal conditions but I don't see where this hitch will ever fail even in the worst situation. Being safe is cool and this definitely is the last hitch you will need.
