Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ram 3500 With 8-Foot Bed  


We bought a Ram 3500 Dually, 8 foot bed with the pucks, Cummings Diesel, hoping to buy a Jayco Pinnacle fifth wheel. What hitch should we purchase?


Expert Reply:

The best hitch for your 2017 Ram 3500 with an 8-foot bed and the factory puck system is the B&W Companion # BWRVK3600. This is our most popular hitch for your vehicle and gets near-universal praise; there are more than 300 reviews of the Companion on our site and it has a 5-star rating.

The Companion has a 25,000 lbs towing capacity and 6,250 lbs vertical load limit (tongue weight) capacity. It is designed to fit directly into your '17 Ram's puck system so you can remove it for access to your truck bed. It has a head which pivots both side-to-side and front-to-back to make hooking up your trailer an easier process; the pivoting head also ensures there is less chucking and jarring.

The B&W Companion # BWRVK3600 is also designed to give you a quiet ride by using polyurethane bushings and dual jaws which are a full inch thick and secure the king pin with complete 360 degree contact.

I have added links to reviews of the B&W Companion for you to check out, as well as a photo showing how it looks installed in the bed of a 2017 Ram 3500.
