Recommended Industry Standard Rails for a 2013 Ram 2500


I have a BandW Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider - Dual Jaw - 18,000 lbs Item # BWRVK3270 I want to install in a 2013 Ram 2500 that doesnt have a rail kit. What do I need to do it.


Expert Reply:

To install the B&W Patriot Slider item # BWRVK3270 in your 2013 Ram 2500 you will need the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches item # BWRVK2605. These custom-fit brackets mount to existing holes in your Ram 2500's frame. They provide the mounting points you will need to attach a set of industry standard rails.

I have linked an installation video below.

To make towing with a 5th wheel easier I recommend adding the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness w/ 7-Pole Connector - 10' Long item # C56000 to your 2013 Ram 2500. This harness puts a 7-way connector in the bed of your truck and allows you to keep the one on your bumper. This makes hooking up to your 5th wheel trailer easier and more convenient.
