The B&W Patriot has worked out great for me so far. I kind of wish I would have paid the extra money to get an auto slider, but this one suffices just fine.




by:

Watch the installation video. Read and understand all directions. Doing that install is very straight forward. Some tips in the installation video help. I installed without a lift, having access to a lift would make installation easier. All in all a good solid product. The custom install kit uses existing holes in the frame rails so no drilling on your frame rails. That is in my opinion the best thing about the custom kit. Installed on a 2014 F-250.

I needed a custom 5th wheel hitch rail installation kit quickly. When I first called for some information I was disconnected, however, I believe it was from my end that it happened. A short while later I received a call from Katerina who appologised for the disconnection and asked if there was anything that she could do to help me. I explained that I thought it was my fault and that I wanted information on a 5th wneel rail installation kit. As a result I ordered the item and she was kind enough to a) ensure that the item was shipped when expected, and b) to follow up with the shipping and delivery status, without me having to check with the shipping company. I received the item a day earlier than expected and everything was perfect. I have since installed the kit and am now able to pick up my new 5th wheel trailer on schedule. Thank you very much Katrina and eTrailerk for your excellent service.

I really love that the rails are custom fit to my truck so I don’t have to drill any holes at all! The order process was very easy and shipping was fast. I found that the installation time was also shorter than the listed time. I would 100% use etrailer again in the future!

2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Exact fit for our 2015 F250. We installed the brackets ourselves and installation was not to difficult with the instuctions provided. etrailer was excellent to work with and met my needs when I made a last minute decision to pick up in person instead of having the items shipped

Great product, fast shipper.

As Advertised. Very pleased. Arrived complete with nothing missing. Instructions all were very clear. Very good price compared to buying at RV dealership.

Will be purchasing more items for my Toy Hauler, in the very near future.

Thank You

  • Tools Needed to Install B&W Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit # BWRVK2401
    When installing the B&W Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit # BWRVK2401 on your 2011 Ford F-250, you will want to have the following items on hand: Impact wrench or ratchet with 15/16 inch and 3/4 inch sockets 15/16 inch and 3/4 inch box end wrench A drill and 1/8 inch and 9/16 inch drill bits Along with these particular tools, you will want a hammer, flashlight, tape measure, eye protection, torque wrench and a center punch.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Rails and Brackets for 2015 Ford F-250 with RBW Hitch
    We have fifth wheel hitch brackets and rails to fit your 2015 Ford F-250 but not RBW specifically. RBW is actually out of business. If your hitch uses industry standard rails like in the picture I attached, then you can use rails from other manufacturers with your RBW hitch. The B&W custom kit, part # BWRVK2401, is great option that fits your truck. Since they're custom fit there's less drilling into the truck because the brackets mount into existing holes in the truck's frame. I've...

  • Does B and W Patriot Hitch Require a Capture Plate
    The B and W Patriot Hitch part # BWRVK3270 does not require a capture or locking plate to connect to fifth wheel trailer. The only hitches that do that are the ones that are auto-sliders where the head of the hitch locks to the pin box and turns with the trailer. The Patriot is a standard style hitch that pivots between the pin box and the hitch head. No capture plate needed. And also there is not angle of approach requirement that the auto-sliders have. We still recommend trying to back...

  • B and W Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-350 for Patriot Hitch
    B and W does not offer just the bracket kits of their fifth wheel rail kits so you'd need to go with the B and W Custom Rail Kit part # BWRVK2401 for your 2015 Ford F-350 short bed. Since you have a short bed truck hopefully you have the slider Patriot part # BWRVK3270 so that you have enough clearance to make tight turns.

    The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider, # BWRVK3270 is a great hitch option for your 2011 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty. It uses the industry-standard above-bed rails (ISR). Please note the attached image showing full measurements of ISR above bed rails. If your current Pullrite Super Glide also uses ISR, then you can confirm there is no issue.

  • What Rail Kit Do I Need to Install a B&W Patriot 5th Wheel on My 2015 Ford F-250
    The part needed to install a B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider, # BWRVK3270, is the B&W Custom Rails and Installation Kit is # BWRVK2401. This kit will include all rails, brackets and all the hardware needed to install into your 2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty. I also recommend getting # 41157 a 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness with 7-Pole Plug. This plug can be installed in the bed of the truck to simplify the hook up between your 5th wheel trailer and your tow vehicle.

    If you are installing the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3200 in your 2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty using industry-standard rails such as # BWRVK2401 then you would only need standard, 3-1/4" long, 1/2" diameter pins such as # 6014.

  • B and W Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Ford F-250 that Can be Used with Sidewinder
    The bad news is that you can't use a Sidewinder pin box with a trailer that a Companion hitch installed in the bed if it's the style designed for Turnoverball gooseneck hitches. Reason being that the Sidewinder needs a hitch that attaches in 4 locations due to the twisting torque they put on the hitch. The Companion only attaches with a center post and the leverage of the Sidewinder is too much for that style. You can use the Fixed B and W Patriot Hitch though part # BWRVK3255 which is...

    There was a generational change in the platform between those years, without knowing what part number you have it is challenging to confirm it would or would not. To your second question, they are most likely what is referred to as ISR or Industry Standard Rails.
