This kit is awesome. Everything lines up wonderfully for my Chevrolet 3500HD long bed. The guide that holds the bolts in place when feeding it through the frame of the truck is genius.......BUT.....please made the guide slightly longer for the rear bolts, (see photo) because mine fell in the frame while pushing it into position, and it took me 2 hours with a magnetic to fish it out of the truck's frame. Until the manufacturer makes them slightly longer, installers drill a hole in the end of the guide and insert a wire, in case it falls into the frame when feeding it into the frame. The two nuts and bolts over the gas truck will drive you nuts (long bed) if you are not a contortionist, lol, but this has nothing to due to this manufacture of this great kit. I also like the grey powder coat that goes with the B&M Patriot 5th wheel hitch.

The B&W 5th wheel hit is working out great.

The product is made extremely durable. Installation was not as easy as the etrailer video showed. Not because of the product, but because you definently want your truck up on a lift. Between the frame and truck bed was about 3 inches to work with. Squatting under the truck bed to bolt everything together was not an easy task for this old man. I did complete it with the help of my kids. Other than that, it bolted together as advertised. If you're going to do this yourself, do all the prep work before you start. The predrilled holes in the frame,make sure the threads are clean and clear of debris. Follow the instructions and good luck. Anybody need a slightly used truck cap?

Fantastic customer service from an incredible company. The B&W Components are of uncompromising quality. Perfect fit and finish. Local installers told me 6 to 8 weeks and it was all received within 4 days. Looking forward to a lifetime of memories secure in the knowledge that this hitch will always be a dependable part of it.

There were delivery problems as UPS had lost 1 of the 4 boxes. I contacted Customer Service and was not only given the name of the representative but also her direct extension. Lori had to file the claim and stayed on the paperwork until she advised that the replacement was in stock and assured it was shipped. They fixed the problem without any extra work on my part. Great experience and Lori deserves major kudos.

Very nice and solid 5th wheel hitch. Very quiet when towing. One important comment: I have a 2019 Chevrolet Crew Cab with 6ft 6 in bed. I am towing a 2019 Grand Design Reflection 5th wheel. Dealership installed the hitch. I seem to have clearance between the cab and 5th wheel when 90 degrees from one another. The 5th wheel hitch overhang will hit the tailgate of the truck when sliding back to locking position. I think its about a 3 inch interference, Make sure you check this by lowering your tailgate before sliding into parking position.




by:

Kit is well made. Hardest part was getting the nuts on the bolts under the truck box without a small hand handy. Taped the nut in the wrench and got it done.

I bought these rails along with the B&W Patriot 5th wheel hitch. The entire setup is the best in the business. It is astonishing how quiet the hitch is when I'm pulling my camper. Would highly recommend any products offered from B&W! Plus, you just can't go wrong with eTrailer's customer service! They assisted in ordering the correct rails for my truck and the entire process was a breeze!




by:

Purchased a new truck recently and needed a new hitch installed. A local trailer company was going to install it, but the rails we needed would not arrive in time to be installed before our trip. I called etrailer and talked to Ed, who said they had them and could get them to me in 4 days. I placed the order at 5:23 on Monday. They shipped at 6:38 that same day, which is pretty impressive to me. Icing on the cake was that I actually received them on Wednesday. Ed was very helpful and easy to talk to. The only negative was that I had to hold for 20 minutes to get through. Not sure if this is normal or just a spike in calls. Good buying experience for me. Thanks Ed!

B & W delivers a high-quality product! Attempting the install without using a vehicle lift was a challenge. However, we managed to finish the install with only a couple of scraped knuckles.

The product is exactly what I needed. In my area, I was told this item could not be located by the local dealers, here and in numerous cities within 50 miles. I found it on your website and was very happy to order. My local Chevy Dealer/garage was able to install no problem! My only reason for 4 out of 5 stars was that this product was sent in two separate boxes, (probably to ensure "free shipping") which arrived one day apart and I was not given two separate tracking numbers. A little frustration there and required an extra day at the shop, but still exactly what I ordered and paid for. Thank you.

  • How to Install 5th Wheel Rails on a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with Plastic Bed Liner
    In order to install the B&W Custom Installation Kit part # BWRVK2506 which is a fit for your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 you will need to trim the plastic bed liner where the horizontal rails sit. This will be the case for all above bed base rails. If you need help doing the above, I have attached a video for you.

  • Installing Front Rail of B&W Custom Installation Kit # BWRVK2506
    The base rails that come in the B&W Custom Installation Kit for your 2016 Chevy Silverado, part # BWRVK2506, have spacing that is 20-1/2 inches by 22 inches to meet the standard base. If you measure the center of the rear base rail hole to the center of the front base rail holes it will be 22 inches. I've attached a photo of similar industry standard base rails to assist.

  • What Would be Needed to Install B and W Patriot Slider in 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed
    The B and W Patriot Slider hitch part # BWRVK3270 can be used in the bed of your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 as long as you install the rail kit designed for your truck part # BWRVK2506. This hitch does not come with rails since different trucks require different rail kit brackets. Sliders are normally needed if the trailer is towed by a short bed truck like you have and if the nose of the trailer is not tapered.

    For your 17,000 lb GVWR on your 5th wheel, you will be fine using an 18,000 lb hitch like the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3255. The hitch will be just as safe for your trailer as a hitch rated for 20,000 lbs because you will still be well under the capacity of the hitch even when your trailer is loaded to capacity. For your rails on your 2015 Silverado 3500, I recommend the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2506. This kit has...

  • Can B&W BWRVK2506 Bed Rails Be Mounted Atop A Truck Bed Mat
    To use the B&W # BWRVK3270 Patriot, the mat would either need to be removed or you can cut holes in the mat for the bed rails. The bed rails absolutely need to have direct contact with the bed floor. If the mat was sandwiched in between the rails and the bed, over time the mat would break down, causing the rails to loosen which would be really bad. The # BWRVK2506 B&W 5th wheel frame bracket/bed rail kit is confirmed to fit your truck. If you'd like to install a 7-way trailer connector...

  • Can Grade 8 Hex Head Bolts Be Used Instead of the Carriage Bolts on the B&W Custom Base Rails
    The B&W Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # BWRVK2506 uses 8 carriage bolts to secure the base rails to the frame brackets. The base rails have 2 square cutouts on each end to accommodate a carriage bolt. The square cutouts minimize movement and allows for you to tighten one side without holding the other.
