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.

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.

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.

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 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

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!

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.

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.

I received the hitch and the box containing the base was beat up. Upon opening it up the top of the hitch was marked up and one of the retaining pins for the locks on the handles was missing. Other than that the shipping was fast. Haven't used the hitch yet just put it together. The hitch fit nice.

The B&W Companion hitch was easy to install in our 2020 Chevrolet 2500HD short bed pickup. Took us less than 15 minutes. We have been using it for about a year now and it works perfectly. It is much easier to hookup that with our previous Reese hitch. We chose not to get the slider hitch version because we never needed it on our previous truck. We have had no problem using the hitch and have never come close to wishing we had the slider. We would recommend this hitch to anyone with the puck system in their truck.

I can't say anything to the use of this hitch yet because we just received it and we won't have our truck for another week (its on its way from the factory-woohoo!) But as from the history of quality and countless reviews with B&W I expect only great results. I wanted to go ahead and submit this review early to shoutout to Brett G and etrailer for their always-on-point customer service. This isn't my first order with etrailer but this is the first time I have ordered over the phone as I had some questions to go along with my order. Brett G was absolutely amazing and he went above and beyond in trying to help answer my question, which was "which teflon plate shall I use with the B&W hitch" (the 10' is fine). Brett was honest and said he's not sure and has little experience when it came to the teflon plates but was willing to research it without hesitation. That says a lot about him and the customer service of etrailer. Then when it came to shipping...etrailer is on top of it! I can't say enough about etrailer, their availability of products, and quality of service. If I had any bummer about etrailer it's I wish they let you create a customer account so you can save all of the goodies you wish to get at a later date and go back to it when you are ready. As soon as the hitch is installed I will gladly update this review but at this juncture I felt it necessary to give a shoutout to Brett G and etrailer!!! Thanks for reading

I could not ask for anything more from etrailer. Service was EXCELLANT! The box was damaged and paint rough but this was from UPS. Put hitch together and could not get the head on the pivots. Called B & W and talked with real nice women and told her the problem and with in a min. of being on hold she said they would send me out another hitch. I thanked the women and was glad I was dealing with a US co. and with someone I could understand. Yes I was a little unhappy but things do happen. I don't know what more could be ask of a Co.

After a lot of research I still had many questions about which hitch to install in my new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 single rear wheel with a standard (6 3/4') bed and the factory puck system. Did I need a slider as everyone suggested or would I be fine with a fixed hitch and save some weight and money in the process. I called B&W Hitches to find the exact location of the king pin receiver compared to the gooseneck opening in the truck bed so I could take an exact measurement. They were eager to assist but I couldn't get an exact number. I then called etrailer and they were extremely patient and even put on hold a couple times to try to get solid answers to my questions. Both places said the fixed hitch may work but recommended the slider. I decided to go with the fixed base hitch and in my situation I'm very happy that I did. The hitch arrived in two days in two boxes and was in great shape. I spent about 1 1/2 hours installing it and all went well. Each piece was easily handled by myself. Now for the number I could not find anywhere. With the 3710 hitch mounted in the rear most position the measurement from the center of the kingpin to the back window in my truck is 45 in. My camper is exactly 96" wide (radius 48" from kingpin center to trailer side) and the front is heavily radiused which will not allow for an absolute 90° jackknife but it comes pretty close. if your trailer nose isn't radiused or the kingpin sets back further you will not have the turning radius that I do. this fixed base hitch will not work for everybody but in my situation it did. I haven't road tested it yet but I expect that to go very well. Both B&W hitches and etrailer were extremely helpful and very professional. Hope my pictures help.

Overall the hitch itself is of great quality. Shipping was fast. My only complaint or issue is the box that the main base unit arrived in was beat up pretty bad. The hitch/base has several areas where the paint is scratched, chipped, and even down to bare metal in a couple small areas. So much for rust and corrosion protection.

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...

  • How to Choose Correct 5th Wheel Hitch to Clear Bed Sides of 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500
    You are correct that some newer pickups have taller bed sides that make it a little more complicated to ensure that your trailer remains level while you have enough clearance between the bed rails and your 5th wheel trailer. While I can't tell you exactly what you need to ensure proper clearance all around for your 5th wheel trailer and your 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500, I do have some tips for you to follow so you can be confident with your towing rig.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 Long Bed With Factory Tow/Prep Package

  • Replacement GM Leg Assembly for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch in 2021 GMC Sierra 2500
    GM didn't offer an OEM puck system back in 2006, so what you have is likely a Reese Elite under-bed rail system that uses the same puck spacing as the Ford OEM pucks. You can check this by measuring the center to center puck spacing, which should be 30 inches across, 13 inches front to back measured center to center. If that's the case, you can re-use your existing B&W Companion hitch head, and install it on new legs that are compatible with the different puck spacing used in the 2021...

The total weight of the Companion hitch is approximately 150-lbs; when broken down each piece weighs approximately 75 to 80-lbs which makes it one of the easier 5th wheel hitches to take apart and move in and out of your truck- for what it's worth, the base weighs slightly more than the head.

  • Is Lube Plate Needed When Using Pivoting Pin Box Like MorRyde Orbital Pin Box
    You don't use lube plates with pivoting pin boxes like the MorRyde Orbital that you have. Since the hitch and the pin box move together and do not rub against each other when the vehicle makes a turn the hitch won't get the same type of wear that you are worried about. This is because the pin box pivots instead.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2021 Chevy Silverado 3500 with OEM Rail Kit
    In 2020 Chevy/GM decided they wanted to change the rail design of the OEM rail kits in their trucks.

We have the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3710 which does fit the 2021 OEM rail kit and is a really great option that is one of the nicer hitch out there like the M5. Many refer to the Companion hitches as the nicest hitch out...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2020 Chevy 3500 OEM Prep for Rotating Pin Box
    For your 2020 Chevy 3500 with OEM 5th wheel prep package pucks, you are correct that you don't want a sliding hitch with the rotating pin box. Out of all the options for the factory pucks, the B&W is by far the customer favorite as well as mine due to the thickness of metal and durability. I recommend getting the Companion # BWRVK3710 unless your trailer is heavier than 20K in which case you would use # BWRVK3715 rated for 25K. Your MorRyde rotating pin box should have a wedge for...
