I have the bandw model 3500 on a 2016 Silverado 2500hd crew cab wi th h the 66 bed and a reese revolution on rv

There is really no easy remedy for your setup. Using a pin box like the Revolution or Sidewinder would place too much stress on the Companion mount in the bed of your truck.

Since the B&W Companion, part # BWRVK3500-5W will not work with your pin box you have just a couple options. First, you will need to install the head from your # BWRVK3500-5W onto the slider base, part # BWRVB3405.

You will then need to lock out the Revolution pin box on your trailer. This can be done by inserting bolts into the 2 holes on the underside of the king pin.

Another option would be to change out the fifth wheel hitch in your truck as mentioned above and then replace your Revolution pin box completely. There should be a plate or sticker with the model number of the pin box you have. If you want to let me know what that number is I can see if we have a replacement pin box that would work for you.
