Is it Okay to Tow 19,600 Pound Trailer with B&W OEM Companion Slider Hitch # BWRVK3770


I have a Chevy Silverado 3500HD Single Rear Wheel, I am going to purchase a 5th Wheel that Has a dry weight of 15200 and a combined weight of 19600. I have a companion slider will I be able to tow this weight.

If you have the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3770 for your Chevy Silverado 3500 you won't have an issue towing the 5th wheel hitch you are planning to purchase. This hitch features a 20,000 pound towing weight capacity, which exceeds the 19,600 pound GVWR that you mentioned on the trailer.

Even if loaded to its max 19,600 pound capacity the Companion can handle its weight, but also keep in mind that it's pretty unlikely you'll actually approach this weight in reality when loading it up with your cargo and supplies. The Companion is an excellent hitch and it's strength/durability is definitely one of the features its known for.
