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

No, if you:

  • Use your truck bed often to haul other things while you tow your fifth wheel and need something less bulky
  • Prefer the most heavy-duty option, even if it's more hitch than you really need
  • Travel over very rough roads and want extra cushion in the head to absorb road shock

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.

I have not towed with the hitch as we have not purchased a fifth wheel RV at the time of me writing this. I want to be ready when we do find a trailer. I have a 2021 Chevrolet 3500HD with the factory puck system. This hitch fits like a glove and appears to be very well constructed. Installation was simple and straight forward. I will very likely consider other products from B&W based on this one. I love the fact that it is made in the USA!


Comments
It has been slightly over a year and we have been towing our new 2021 Grand Design Reflection purchased May 2021 303RLS with this hitch. I am very happy with its preformance and ease of use. I would recommend this hitch.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

After buying a 2021 Silverado 2500, we decided to purchase a new hitch to replace the sliding Reese hitch we have used for the past 10 years. Our truck has a 6'9" standard bed. With the rounded front caps on newer 5th wheels, we decided we could use a fixed mount hitch instead of a slider. After reading reviews online, we purchased the B&W Companion Hitch with the puck system. It was quick to assemble, and with the ability to separate the plate assembly from the base it is easy to take in and out of the truck. This hitch also allowed the option to set it up so the trailer pin sits 2" behind the back axle. Every trailer is different, but this feature allows us to jackknife our trailer to 90 degrees with 1" clearance from the back of the cab. The hitch has three different height settings and we chose the middle setting. This gave us 7 1/4" clearance between the trailer overhang and the truck bed sides. Once we added our Tonneau Cover rails we still had 6" of clearance. Hooking up to this hitch is a great deal easier than our previous Reese hitch. It also pulled much smoother and quieter with the dual jaw configuration. Additionally, the smaller footprint in the bed of the truck should allow us more cargo room if needed. We are very happy with this purchase and expect to use this hitch for many years. Buying through etrailer was a positive experience. Besides having the best price and free shipping, we relied on their sales team to answer our many questions and help choose the right hitch for us. Once we placed our order, we had our hitch in 2 days.


Comments
After using this hitch for the past year, we are still very happy with our purchase. The hitch has been trouble free, easy to put in and pull out of the truck bed, easy to hook up to our camper and it pulls great. Having used different hitches over the years, this is the one I would recommend.

The hitch arrived in two heavy boxes, but the base box had lost one of the straps and the box looked beat up. Once opened, however, everything looked good. I spent the next morning installing the hitch and making adjustments. The base fit the puck mounts in the bed of my 2020 Silverado 2500HD perfectly, only took a couple of tweaks to get the mount tight. I am very pleased with the final install.


Comments
A year later and I still think this was the best hitch I could have purchased. We just returned from a 5,000+ mile trip to AZ and back to Western New York. No problems with the hitch and the amount of upkeep to keep it up to spec. is minimal.

First I want to say they shipped my package right away. I received my package (B&W companion 5th wheel hitch) exactly when I was told it would be delivered. Kinda heavy but it's a 5th wheel hitch. Minimal bucking and chucking air bags will fix the rest. Very well made hitch and I am extremely happy with my purchase. The head removes very easily, the base removes very easily (remove separately for weight) assembled in less than 15 min and hooked up to my 15k toy hauler. 2020 gmc Denali 3500 4x4. I will never buy another brand or from another company as long as they are both in business. Purchasing was very easy and I was emailed a receipt and tracking number right away. Very excited for our 600 mile round trip this hitch so far doesn't beat me our my equipment to [crap]. Beefy hitch oh and the double jaw is excellent and you can also disconnect the hitch very easily even with a slight bind to it. functions exactly as it was described in the ad...

The fastest delivery that I recall from anything I have bought. The personal that I have talked with and emailed were outstanding. All companies should operate this way. It works great for my situation.

Wish it had been my first hitch. The money I could have saved. We take it out of bed when not in use, by myself and I am 72 years old. It is easy. Have been on several trips with it and no complains. Would buy again. Thanks for selling this product.

I recieved my B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch today, and unpacked it to inspect it. Other than the packaging being in in rough shape, the hitch was in great shape. I am inpressed with the quality and workmanship of the unit, and will perform well for many years to come. It will be a few months till i start camping but do not foresee any problems.

I bought my hitch at the beginning of last year. My new truck did not arrive until late in the year. I am anxious to try it out this spring

i have not used the hitch to tow yet so no information for towing. it was easy for me to install by myself because it breaks down to 2 pieces and has handles and handholes to carry. it dropped right into my trucks puck set up without much hassle, unlike my previous unit for ram puck system. i bought this hitch to take advantage of the small puck layout on newer gm truck. lighter weight and more space in bed. i have the regular bed truck but bought a non slider hitch because puck system is located farther back on 2020/21 gm HD trucks and don't feel a slider is needed and was afraid it would be too close to tailgate in rear position. the hitch looks like great quality to me. i have ordered several items from etrailer before and have been very satisfied with their delivery and updates

Fast shipping, arrived in 2 boxes well packaged. Assembly was relatively easy, we arched a couple videos and followed the printed instructions. Product is solid, safe and fits our 2022 GMC Denali 2500 HD perfectly. Highly recommend this product and etrailer as well. Just as an informational point, use the lowest height setting for this truck.

I'm completely satisfied with the B&W hitch. Also I've never been contacted a year after a purchase to see how it was, till etrailer did. Not that I want to sound like a sales pitch, but I'm impressed with the customer satisfaction department. If I had to purchase anything else, I would look at etrailer first. Kudos etrailer.

I was diagnosed with leukemia just after receiving the hitch. Have not put the hitch together yet. I have been taking chemo for a year now and am doing good now. We have plans to go to the MO state fair in August. I think your hitch looks to be better built than the Reese hitch I have used for the last several years.

I have been extremely happy with my B&W fifth wheel hitch, which shouldn’t have surprised me, as the customer service I received was the also the best! I enjoy showing fellow travelers just how easy it is to use, and the ease it is to remove when necessary. This RVer highly recommends this product with no reservations!

Received the unit and upon first glance it seemed like a good product. Upon installation of the base I noticed one of the latches was not turning smoothly and the cam tower was binding on the black rubber handle. Turns out the cam tower was welded sloppily with a pretty pronounced tilt to it. I am able to close the latch but with the awkward tilt of the cam tower I consider this a defective unit. I'm pretty disappointed with the quality control of this B&W Companion hitch and will need to now send the base in for a replacement. I did a lot of research on these 5er hitches and settled on this one as it was one of the best and Made in the USA. Of course this adds a lot of extra work and effort for me disassembling everything and boxing it back up. I'll reach out to etrailer for a resolution. (See photos to better understand what I'm talking about)

I love this hitch,, operates great and is quiet. No sloppiness. If a noise shows up,, a bit of grease as per the instructions takes care of it. And the design allows the base to separate from the plate portion making it easy to remove from the bed of my truck if needed.

Easy ordering via the website. This hitch looks to be built well above the listed limitations, which is big plus when it comes to attaching to my 5th wheel trailer. Nice to see that safety is considered first, before cost. Assembly is straight forward and any questions about assembly/installation can be answered by e-trailer or one of their videos. Made in USA is a plus. Was shipped on 2 separate tracking numbers. The boxes came on different days, so I had to reschedule picking up my new 5th wheel. Other than that, no issues.

etrailer service and shipping was great. As far as the hitch, it's the best you can buy. I'm using it in a 2021 standard bed Chevy 3500. I can safely get about a 75 degree turn with it. I don't feel like a I need a slider at all. Hitch is solid and gives a very smooth ride.

First and foremost, I received outstanding customer service from Cailee. I had a short time frame to deal with. The first parts that I ordered (Curt 16029) were back ordered Cailee called Curt to see if we could get fast delivery, they said yes, the following day Cailee called me back and told me that Curt now could not meet the delivery date. So I cancelled that order and ordered the BWRVk3710. I had that delivered to the location I would be in a few days. The hitch arrived on time and every thing turned out just fine. Cailee did a great job of following up to assure that my needs were met and the product was fine, It was and I am a very satisfied customer and the product works just fine and meets all of my needs.

This is a wonderful hitch and does a great job. It is easy to install and remove. Low maintenance and trail tows well, not slapping.

    The B&W # BWRVK3710 hitch base has two options for horizontal location of the pivot arms. Since you do not have an 8-foot bed, I would choose the option that places the king pin closer to the rear bumper. This still won't allow a 90-degree turn, but it will give you a bit more room to navigate.

    Minus the shipping packaging, the B&W # BWRVK3710 Companion 5th wheel hitch for the 2020+ Chevy/GMC in bed puck package weighs about 130 lbs.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 with OEM Rail Kit Towing Jayco Fifth Wheel
    Since you plan to remove the hitch fairly often I would recommend going with a hitch that fits directly to the OEM rail kit of the 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 as that will lower the amount of components that would need to get removed and installed in the bed of the truck.
