Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Are willing to pay a little more for the all-American craftsmanship that B&W is known for - this hitch is easy to use and looks good for years
  • Take the time to make sure you hitch is in the optimal spot and like having adjustments not only for the height but also forward and back

No, if you:

  • Use your truck bed often to haul other things while you tow your fifth wheel and need something less bulky
  • Prefer the most heavy-duty option, even if it's more hitch than you really need
  • Travel over very rough roads and want extra cushion in the head to absorb road shock

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.

Worked out great I have a brand new 2022 GMC Denali with a 6 foot 10 bed I positioned the arms so the fifth wheel sits to 3 inches back I have more clearance now than I have ever had with my fifth wheel trailer I used to medium holes and have seven and three-quarter inches between my trailer and the truck bed it works out really well


Comments
Just bought same truck and trying to figure out the next part with proper hitch, never trailered 5th wheel so definite learning curve, can you specify the part about the holes and 3 inches back??. Thank you
-- comment by: Scott C - 07/14/2022

Congratulations on your new 2022 GMC Denali short bed Scott! The B&W Companion is one of the best hitches on the market right now because of it's adjustability and ease of use. When Walter mentions positioning the arms of the B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch 3 inches back, he is referring to the pivot arms of the hitch. The pivot arms offer 3 holes of adjustability to allow flexibility in coupler height (vertical adjustment) and distance from the cab for clearance (horizontal adjustment). In Walter's review he mentions he adjusted the pivot arms to the medium position in the installation instructions which allowed him to have more clearance between the king pin and his cab. However, with a short bed truck you may still experience some clearance issues with tight turns. We normally recommend the B&W Companion slider hitch part # BWRVK3775
B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20K
$1,699.00
for short bed trucks. The sliding feature on the Companion will give you the clearance you need while making slow, sharp turns.

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!


Comments
It has been slightly over a year and we have been towing our new 2021 Grand Design Reflection purchased May 2021 303RLS with this hitch. I am very happy with its preformance and ease of use. I would recommend this hitch.

Received the unit and upon first glance it seemed like a good product. Upon installation of the base I noticed one of the latches was not turning smoothly and the cam tower was binding on the black rubber handle. Turns out the cam tower was welded sloppily with a pretty pronounced tilt to it. I am able to close the latch but with the awkward tilt of the cam tower I consider this a defective unit. I'm pretty disappointed with the quality control of this B&W Companion hitch and will need to now send the base in for a replacement. I did a lot of research on these 5er hitches and settled on this one as it was one of the best and Made in the USA. Of course this adds a lot of extra work and effort for me disassembling everything and boxing it back up. I'll reach out to etrailer for a resolution. (See photos to better understand what I'm talking about)

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

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.


Comments
After using this hitch for the past year, we are still very happy with our purchase. The hitch has been trouble free, easy to put in and pull out of the truck bed, easy to hook up to our camper and it pulls great. Having used different hitches over the years, this is the one I would recommend.

I think the product is great and will perform well for a lot of traveling! However the packaging was in really bad shape when the hitch arrived. I am very, very surprised that nothing was scratched or missing! Assembly was easy after watching the videos.

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.


Comments
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.

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...

Wish it had been my first hitch. The money I could have saved. We take it out of bed when not in use, by myself and I am 72 years old. It is easy. Have been on several trips with it and no complains. Would buy again. Thanks for selling this product.

I recieved my B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch today, and unpacked it to inspect it. Other than the packaging being in in rough shape, the hitch was in great shape. I am inpressed with the quality and workmanship of the unit, and will perform well for many years to come. It will be a few months till i start camping but do not foresee any problems.

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

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 was diagnosed with leukemia just after receiving the hitch. Have not put the hitch together yet. I have been taking chemo for a year now and am doing good now. We have plans to go to the MO state fair in August. I think your hitch looks to be better built than the Reese hitch I have used for the last several years.

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.

I love this hitch,, operates great and is quiet. No sloppiness. If a noise shows up,, a bit of grease as per the instructions takes care of it. And the design allows the base to separate from the plate portion making it easy to remove from the bed of my truck if needed.

Easy ordering via the website. This hitch looks to be built well above the listed limitations, which is big plus when it comes to attaching to my 5th wheel trailer. Nice to see that safety is considered first, before cost. Assembly is straight forward and any questions about assembly/installation can be answered by e-trailer or one of their videos. Made in USA is a plus. Was shipped on 2 separate tracking numbers. The boxes came on different days, so I had to reschedule picking up my new 5th wheel. Other than that, no issues.

  • Picking Head Position of B and W Companion Hitch for 2020 Chevy Silverado with OEM Rail Kit
    Start with having the jaw centered over the rear axle of your B and W Companion Hitch for GM rail kits part # BWRVK3710.

  • 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.

    For your 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with the OEM rail kit the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3710 would be a great option. Many refer to the B and W hitches as the best hitches you can due to how well they are made, how easy they are to use overall, and how quiet they when towing.

  • How Far Does Handle Extend of B&W Companion BWRVK3710 For 2021 GMC Sierra 3500
    I reached out to B&W regarding the handle of the B&W Companion # BWRVK3710, and they said when fully open the furthest point out is about 12" from the back of the coupler head, which should let you know if you have enough space with your truck's toolbox. This hitch is a fit for your 2021 GMC Sierra 3500, and I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well of the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3710.

  • Can 2021 GMC Sierra 2500HD Short Bed Tow 2021 Jayco 321RSTS with Fixed Hitch
    I looked up your 2021 Jayco 321RSTS and it has a tapered nose design which would allow your 2021 GMC Sierra 2500HD short bed to tow it with a fixed hitch since you have a longer "short" bed at 6-3/4 feet. This means the 20k Companion hitch part # BWRVK3710 would work really well for you.

  • 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. So the M5 hitch that fit the 2019 model does not carry over to the newer trucks like what you have. So the Reese M5 you mentioned only fits up to the 2019 model. 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 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 DRW W/ OEM Prep Package
    I have a different option for you, but since the OEM gooseneck hitch in your 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 DRW does not use a latch to keep the gooseneck ball from spinning, you will not be able to use a 5th wheel rail adapter that goes directly into your gooseneck hitch. The gooseneck hitch ball for your truck is secured by ball bearings, and rotates which would cause the 5th wheel hitch to spin which would cause the trailer to be all over the place. Instead you will need to use a 5th...

    Great question! Because the hitch manufacturers can change where they source their hardware from time to time, we don't mention specific torque specifications on the website or in print.

  • Pivot Arm Setting For B&W Companion Hitch
    The B&W # BWRVK3710 hitch base has two options for horizontal location of the pivot arms. Since you do not have an 8-foot bed, I would choose the option that places the king pin closer to the rear bumper. This still won't allow a 90-degree turn, but it will give you a bit more room to navigate.

  • Weight of B&W BWRVK3710 Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy/GMC Towing Prep Package
    Minus the shipping packaging, the B&W # BWRVK3710 Companion 5th wheel hitch for the 2020+ Chevy/GMC in bed puck package weighs about 130 lbs. The hitch head can be easily be removed by pulling the saddle pins which will reduce the weight of the hitch by almost half, which will make it easier to handle. I'll link you to a demonstration video for the B&W Companion Hitch for the GM Tow/Prep Package.
