Expert Answers about Fifth Wheel Hitch


  • Difference Between Curt A25 16046 and Curt Q25 16049 Fifth Wheel HItch for Ram Truck Prep Package
  • Good question and there are a couple of important differences between the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # C16046 and Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # C16049. The first difference is the jaw system, as you can see in the accompanying photo I made which shows them side-by-side. The A25 has an interlocking dual jaw system while the Q25 does not; these interlocking jaws result in the A25 always having complete contact with your...

  • Best Autoslide Hitch For 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 With Factory Puck System
  • It is possible! I recommend the 18K Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider part # DM8550034 or the 21K Hijacker # DM8550035 with the Demco 5th Wheel rail adapter part # DM6333. The Hijacker is an automatic slider so you do not have to get out of the Sierra every time you make a turn to adjust the slider. It provides 14" of front to back clearance for cab clearance and 3" of height adjustment for bed rail clearance while towing. The other great thing about the Hijacker...

  • Recommended B&W 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ford F-250 4WD with 6-3/4 Foot Bed
  • Since your Ford F-250 is a 6-3/4-foot short bed and your Grand Design Reflection 29RS 5th wheel does not have a tapered nose for increased turning clearance you will need a slider hitch to be able to safely make tight turns, or you can install a Sidewinder pivoting pin box and still use a fixed (non-sliding hitch). You need to be able to make close to 90-degree turns to enable safe maneuvering at campgrounds. For a B&W option we have the 18K Patriot Slider hitch # BWRVK3270 which installs...

  • Can Stationary 5th Wheel Hitch be Used for a 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 with 6-3/4 Bed
  • We tend to stick with the safe side of things and just recommend using a sliding 5th wheel hitch if you don't have an 8' bed, but we have heard and seen people 5th wheel tow just fine using a non-sliding hitch on a 6-3/4' bed. We've actually had someone install the standard B&W Companion (available in 20K # BWRVK3710 or 25K # BWRVK3715) on their 2020 Silverado 3500 with the 6-3/4' bed and he said that he was super close to getting his trailer at a 90 degree angle.

  • Great question! There are a few different B&W Companion 5th wheel hitches and the correct one all depends on the configuration of your 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500. If you have the OEM Prep Package (with the pucks) then you need the sliding Companion # BWRVK3775 for a short bed (to gain enough cab clearance on tight turns) OR one of the stationary Companions, available as 20K # BWRVK3710 or 25K # BWRVK3715 weight rating, for a long bed. These options fit directly to the puck system and...

  • How to Choose Correct 5th Wheel Hitch to Clear Bed Sides of 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500

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.

To start off let's make sure that you get the correct B&W Companion for your setup. The part # BWRVK3370 has a sliding function that is used for short bed pickups so that the trailer doesn't make contact with your cab while part # BWRVK3300 is a 20K stationary option and part # BWRVK3305 is a 25K stationary option, both of which will...

I checked with the manufacturer, and the head of the Companion weighs 75 lbs and the base weighs 212 lbs for a total of 287 lbs. It's an extremely durable, high-quality hitch that is built to last. Like all sliding 5th wheel hitches, it is heavy, but if you want to take it out of your truck, there is a part made to do that, the B&W 5th Wheel Lifting Device # BWRVXA3130. You...

The B&W OEM Companion # BWRVK3715 and the Curt A25 # C24FR for the factory pucks on your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 (congrats on the new truck, by the way!) represent the very peak of fixed 5th wheel hitches on the market.

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for Lifted 2016 Ram 2500 With Factory Prep Package
  • Those are good questions and we can definitely help you out. First, let's start with the height, and as you can see by the accompanying diagram, you will need at least 5 to 6 inches above your rails and to the underside of the loft. You also need to make sure you are towing as level as possible. Due to this, you will need a hitch that has a low height setting, and the fact that your 2016 Ram 2500 has the factory prep package (which will have pucks in the bed) is great because inches matter...

If you want to be certain then you can use the formula below to determine this after you obtain some measurements. That said, it's better to be safe than sorry which is why I recommend the slider.

  • Can the Non-Slider B&W Companion Hitch Be Used on a 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed

The reason for this is because the cam-action handle on the B&W Companion makes a world of difference when it comes to uncoupling the trailer on un-level ground. In order to determine if a sliding fifth wheel hitch is needed, you will have to do some measuring as clearances change for each truck/trailer. In...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Truck That Has a Recessed Gooseneck Hitch
  • To tow a 5th wheel trailer with your truck that has a Hauler bed and a recessed gooseneck hitch installed, there are a few different options. Since the goosneck hitch is already installed the easiest way would be to adapt either the truck or trailer so you can hook up and tow. The first option is an adapter that replaces your pin box on your trailer. They are specifically designed to fit certain pin boxes, but this is the most secure permanent solution.

  • Do I Need a 5th Wheel Slider In My 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 w/ OEM Prep Package and Short Bed
  • We still recommend the use of a slider in all standard/short bed trucks. That being said, the new GM trucks like your 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 do have a slightly longer bed than the typical standard bed. The best thing you can do is to measure to see if you have the proper clearance needed without a slider. You can do this by taking A = Distance from center of fifth wheel hitch jaw to truck cab and subtracting C = Width of trailer divided by 2 (to get half). So A - C= your clearance. You need...

And according to my research, your '20 Sierra is capable of towing up to that capacity depending on its configuration.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2020 Ram 2500 without Factory Puck System
  • For your 2020 Ram 2500 that's not equipped with the factory puck system I really like the Reese Select Plus 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30081 along with the Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit # RP50054-58.

The Select Plus also features a unique 9" wide...

  • Sidewinder Wedge Needed For A B&W Hitch
  • To ensure your rotating pin box sits correctly in your B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 25,000lbs # BWRVK3600 you'll just need a wedge to lock the king pin in place so the only movement will be the turret rotating.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Installation Bracket/Rail Kit for 2021 Ram 1500
  • 2021 is a split model year for the Ram 1500, with two different models being available. The 1500 Classic is a carryover from the previous generation, while the Ram 1500 is the all new model. If you have the Ram 1500 Classic, I'd recommend the Reese # RP50142-58 custom install kit. For a less expensive option, a semi-custom kit is available as part # RP30035-523. The semi-custom kit would take an hour or two longer to install. For a Ram 1500, only a custom install kit is available...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2020 Ford F-250 with and without Factory Puck System
  • I can absolutely make a 5th wheel hitch recommendation for your potential 2020 Ford F-250, whether you get it with the factory puck system in the bed or not. Starting with my recommendation for the factory puck setup, I really like the Curt A25 5th Wheel Hitch # C16036. This will drop right down into those pucks and it features an interlocking 2-jaw system that will completely wrap around the trailer's king pin. What this does is not only provide an extremely secure connection with...

  • Curt Q20 Fifth Wheel Hitch That Fits 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 With Factory Puck System
  • We do have a Curt Q20 5th wheel hitch that fits your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 with the factory puck system, but the Curt Q20 # C16530-16025 is not a fit. The reason is that Chevy/GMC changed their puck spacing when they redesigned the trucks for the 2020 model year, so you would need a different model of Q20 hitch. The hitch that does fit your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 is the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # C57FR. This is a good for a strong 5th wheel hitch...
