1985 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup

Install went pretty easy on my 1985 GMC C30 Dually. No drilling was required!

Note: When you torque the bolts make sure to do it from the bolt head and not the nut side. If you torque the nut you will destroy the lock washer under it. Depending on the size of your torque wrench you may need a crows foot for the two rear most bolts.


The B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver Item #BWHDRH25198 worked perfect for my 1995 F350 with a drop bumper.

2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty

The B&W hitch was installed on a 1997 F350 in Feb 2018. The installation was not as easy as described, four holes had to be drilled in the frame. For some reason the mounting holes had not been drilled out by Ford, who knows this may have been one of the last 97 F350 built. The hitch has worked great with no problems. I've pulled an RV over 10k miles without a hiccup along with utility trailers, great quality hitch. etrailer delivered the hitch in just a few days from ordering and their customer service is wonderful. I would definitely purchase this hitch again.

Ford F-350 Super Duty

Installed on a 2wd 1993 Ford F-350 dually. I'd been looking for a hitch that would fit without requiring me to modify or replace my deep drop bumper. This B&W hitch worked perfectly.
I have ordered from Etrailer several times and the products always arrive before the scheduled delivery date. The hitch was well packaged and in perfect condition, all the needed assembly parts were in the box along with easy to read and follow directions.
The truck frame was not pre-drilled for a hitch so I bought new drill bits, charged up the big drill and 2 hours later we're ready to tow.

Honda Pilot

This thing is stout! I had to drill all 6 holes, using a small pilot bit, then a 1/2". I installed myself which wasn't terribly difficult. I used a hydraulic jack to hold the hitch in place to mark the locations to drill. Then I lowered the hitch, drilled holes, and again used the jack to hold the hitch in place while installing the bolts. I have a 6" drop bumper. I initially thought this would be too low, but its perfect for my application.

Ford F-250 Super Duty

Installed hitch on 1986 Ford F250. I had to drill all 6 mounting holes on my truck. It took about 1 1/2 hours to install. The online instructional video of a similar model with a drop bumper helped. Hitch is very well made.


Product fit was perfect and the tech support was outstanding.


Worked great. The hardest part was ordering the correct hitch for fitting my truck. I recall making a diagram and providing measurements and based on that, the nice folks helped me choose which ones would fit. Mine was a bit odd because it had a home-made bumper on it and thus required accurate measurements and calculations in choosing a hitch.


Fit as should and good build quality. Fast service.


Shipping packaging was excellent, arrived in perfect condition.
Very high quality and heavy built hitch made in USA - Highly recommend.
Had to make a few minor mods to fit on 1985 CUCV pick up.

1985 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup

Fit my 85 Chevy dually perfectly! No drilling, no welding, just bolt on. Great price and fast delivery. Very happy with my purchase !

1979 GMC C/K Series Pickup

This is a great, heavy duty receiver that took less than an hour for me to put it together and installed it on the vehicle with absolutely zero issues. I couldn't be happier. This weekend I'll be pulling a dump trailer with gravel that way I can put her to the test.


The trailer receiver hitch was easy to install and fit my truck application perfectly.

1996 Ford F-250 and F-350

After receiving the hitch and reviewing the instructions, I knew the hitch would be too heavy to manage by myself. After drilling all the holes, I loosely mounted each side on each frame rail. This made it easy to mount the center section. Once in place, I tighten all the bolts. The receiver ended up a little lower than expected but the bumper hid most of the hitch. I am very happy how it turned out.

The hitch still looks new. The finish is great.

2006 Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis

Thanks great job

1985 Ford F-150, F-250, F-350

The product fit perfect. I had to remove the spare tire rack but then the product said you would. Took two of us about 1 1/2 hours total time to install. We had to drill six holes in the frame. Make sure you have a high quality steel bit. Drilling the holes was the most difficult part.

Working great!

Arrived quickly. We will see how it fits

Ford F-350 Super Duty

This hitch seems well made. I just installed it today on a 1992 Ford F350 that has a cummins 6BT with 4-inch exhaust. Only the rear most holes lined up. The other 2 pre-existing holes on each side were from a much smaller hitch. Thus I had to drill 4 holes total. I also worked alone, so I did as most other reviewers and assembled the hitch as instructed, then used a floor jack to raise it up to the two rear bolts and installed the spacer, washer, nut. Then used c-clamps to hold rear tabs while I readjusted the floor jack. Using a 36-inch piece of 4x4, I supported the rear of the hitch with the floor jack. This allowed me to remove the c-clamps, so I could drill the rear holes. Once I had the rear holes hardware installed, I could drop the jack and move it out of the way to work on middle holes. This is why I mention the exhaust on the truck. The bracket holding the exhaust and the large diameter of the exhaust were both in the way of drilling the middle hole on the passenger side. When I unbolted the exhaust bracket, there was just enough play in the exhaust pipe that I was able to have my wife pull it aside while I drilled the hole and installed hardware. All in all it took 2-hours.

Now the down side, my hitch was packed only in an box and all hardware was in clear ziplock bags. The bags had torn open in shipment and some lock washers were missing and a spacer block was missing. support is great and replacements are on the way, but I cannot finish the install and torque everything down until the remaining hardware comes. Minor issue and not a reflection of the quality of the product.


I like the Heavy duty construction or the hitch easy installation excellent power coated its just a nice Hitch period

Ford F-350 Super Duty

Very nice hitch. Installed it on my 91 f350 dually crew cab. Some drilling involved but not difficult with a good drill and bits. Have pulled my 28ft, 7000lb travel trailer with no trouble. Hauled my 22ft flatbed trailer with an extended cab truck on it, handled it fine. Excellent hitch, great price too. Thanks etrailer!

2010 Honda Pilot

Great people at e trailer. Very helpful and actually seem to like what they do and understand their products and the applications. The B&W was the perfect answer for my needs. It fit (after the normal and expected minor bumper mods) great. Don't expect an installation like the 10 min video. More like 2 days for me. But most of the time and knuckle busting was due to the fact that my old drop bumper w/ 10K ball hitch had to be completely dismantled and was (after 20 yrs of salt roads) mostly a grinder, torch, hammer nightmare. Don't count on using existing frame holes either. Then imagine drilling 6 pilot holes, followed by 6 1/2 holes in 1/4 inch steel frame rails while laying on your back working over head.
End result is worth it though, just that knowing what I know now, maybe it would be a job I'd farm out next time. BTW, my truck is 97 f250 HD w/ a 10" laverne drop bumper/hitch.

1975 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup

Received this today 01-19-16 after ordering last Thursday I believe. Was able to install in around an hour, and only had to drill two 1/2" holes for the mounting brackets. Was very easy to install, even with just one person. I'm writing this review the night of the install, so I haven't yet had a chance to use it just yet, but I'm sure I will not be disappointed, I've have B&W hitches and receivers in the past and have always had an excellent experience. I highly recommend this product!

1997 Ford F-250 and F-350 Heavy Duty

worked as advertised and installed as anticipated. directions were correct and clear.

1997 Ford F-250 and F-350 Heavy Duty

Etrailer has been good to me. Often less expensive than what I can find locally. Etrailer also has what I’m looking for and gets it to me quicker that trying to source it locally.

The B&W hitch I purchased was the first hitch that has had a questionable fit. In the past I’ve always order Curt. I was able to make the B&W fit, after 3-4 mock ups, and trying different positions

1997 Ford F-250 and F-350 Heavy Duty

This is an outstanding product. Superb fit and finish. I will be towing a 1938 Buick around and wanted the best hitch I could find - folks, this is it!
