B and W Patriot Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500 Short Bed


I have a 2017 Ram 3500 short bed truck without the factory rail kit. The bed is 6’ 6” I am being told that BandW recommends the BWRVK 3255 or BWRVK3270 because the bed is over 6’ long is this true?


Expert Reply:

While 6-1/2 foot is longer than most truck short beds it's still recommended to go with a slider hitch so that you can make tight turns unless the nose of your trailer is tapered to allow for short bed clearance. So for a slider hitch the B and W Patriot Slider part # BWRVK3270 would be the way to go.

Then for a custom rail kit for your 2017 Ram 3500 you'd want the part # BWRVK2605 and you'd be set.
