B&W Companion or Curt A25 Which is Lighter and Easier to Remove from the Ram Puck System?


What is the weight of each of the 2 sections when you remove the head from base/legs? Deciding between the Curt A25 16046 and BandW RVK3600 which I believe is a lot heavier. It will be going into a 2022 Ram 3500 and towing around 15,000. Thank you!

You are correct the B&W Companion does weigh more then the Curt A25 at 42 lbs. Here are the break downs below of the individual weights. I recommend the B&W Companion over the Curt for reliability and it is made in America. I have linked a solution below that will help you offset the additional weight. The B&W also detaches with pins over the Curt which requires you to unscrew bolts.

If that's not something you're interested in moving by yourself and don't want to have to rely on someone to help you then I recommend purchasing the B&W 5th Wheel Lifting Device for Companion and Patriot Hitches item # BWRVXA3130. This heavy duty steel tool lets you lift your B&W 5th-wheel hitch from your truck bed with a hoist. The 5th-Wheel jaws clamp around the device for a secure grip.
