B&W Companion 5TH Wheel Hitches Available For 2022 Ram 2500 Short Bed With Factory Prep/Puck System  


Is there a 20K companion hitch for a 2022 Ram SB with puck system? It only appears a 25K version is available. Thanks


Expert Reply:

For your 2022 Ram 2500 Short Bed with the factory prep/puck system B&W offers the Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3670. The hitch is rated for 20,000lbs and offers 12" of travel to allow for jackknife turns when maneuvering the 5th wheel trailer.

The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3600 that you found is a fixed hitch designed for long bed trucks and can be used if your trailer has a rotating pin box. Currently B&W only offers this hitch in a 25,000lb hitch.

Be sure to use a Lube Plate # RP83002 with either hitch as it will extend the life of the hitch and reduce the noise made when turning. A B&W 5th Wheel Lifting Device # BWRVXA3130 is great to have if you plan to remove the hitch when you are not towing. This will allow you to lift the heavy 5th wheel hitch from your truck using an overhead lift system.
