Slider Base for Gooseneck B&W Companion on Short Bed Truck


I have the BandW companion fifth wheel in my 2016 ram truck and need to go to the slider hitch what are my options. My newer rv currently has the 5th airbourne pin box with the goose neck adapter thanks

If you have the standard 5th Airborne pin box with the king pin then what you'll need to use is the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3400-5W. If you already have the stationary Companion # BWRVK3500-5W then you can just remove the head unit and use that with the slider base # BWRVB3405 to get the clearance that you need.

Since you said you have the gooseneck adapter is made me wonder if you have the Reese Goosebox like part # RP94716. If this is the case then you could potentially use a 4" Offset Ball # BWGNXA4085 to give you some extra clearance without replacing your pin box.
