What is the weight of this fifth wheel.I have a 2017 2500 short bed without any mount provisions.I will have to put the puck system in and then the hitch.Im trying to keep the weight down.And .Its either that or a gooseneck hitch with the pullrite superlite.I was told I dont need a slider for the ram shortbed.


Expert Reply:

The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3600 that you referenced weighs 226 lbs. What's great about this hitch is that it easily breaks down so that you can split the weight up so you don't have to lift the full weight at a time.

For modern fifth wheel campers that have tapered noses slider hitches aren't needed as often. Especially with a short bed truck like yours that has a "longer" short bed at 6-1/2 feet.
