What Does B and W Patriot Slider Hitch RVK3270 Weigh


Do you know how much this hitch weighs? This is important to understand when picking a hitch for a 5th wheel in a 1/2 ton truck Thank you


Helpful Expert Reply:

The B&W Patriot slider fifth wheel hitch # BWRVK3270 that you referenced weighs a total of 220 lbs. While that is a lot of weight what's great about the B and W hitches is that they break down into smaller sections easily to help distribute the weight. So you can first install the slider mechanism without the head to save weight and then after that easily install the head of the hitch. It's still not light by any means but since all slider hitches weigh quite a bit this is the easiest to deal with solution. This is also right in the ballpark of other slider hitch weights as well but advantage to this is that it's easier to remove/install since it comes apart easily.

The install kit part # BWRVK2604 is the correct rail kit for your 2019 Ram 1500 6-1/2 foot bed as well. This is a custom install kit which means it will install in less time than a universal kit and won't require frame drilling.
