Review of B and W Fifth Wheel Installation Kit BWGNRK1319-5W


Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the B&W Custom Underbed Installation Kit for the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2019 Ram 1500 Trucks with the 8' bed. What I would recommend on a custom fit part is to go to our website use our fit guide. Put in your year and model vehicle, and it will show if this will work for your application. Now for this video I've attached the installation to the hitch just to show what it looks like put together.

Basically what this does it will let you install a B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch to your truck, which we do sell separately on our website.And what the Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch is it's a fifth wheel hitch, and it has a center post on it that will attach to this ball hole on this kit. So basically you drop that post of the companion hitch into this opening, turn the handle, and the pin here will lock it into place. This single hole right here in the center of the bed is the mounting point for the center of your hitch. Now you can remove the fifth wheel when you're done towing leaving this truck bed open once again. It will provide complete truck bed access when you're not towing.

It does use on the end of this handle. It's a 5/8" diameter thick spring loaded steel locking pin that will go all the way through that center post to secure it into place.The handle here is accessible at your rear driver's side wheel well. It does come with spring loaded safety chain hook ups that are built in. Now what's nice about this hitch it'll double as a heavy duty turn over ball goose neck trailer hitch. It comes with this 2 5/16" gooseneck hitch ball.

Basically all you have to do if you're going to use it in gooseneck situation is again pull that pin open, you pull the handle, and it'll lock it open. Drop it right into the opening, turn that and that pin will slide across and lock the ball into place. Now you can use it as a gooseneck. Simple as that.This part does install easily using existing holes in your vehicles frame. There's no welding or frame drilling required.

The truck bed does not have to be removed to install this. Now you do have to drill a 4" diameter hole in your truck bed to be able to access this opening. And then 4 1/2" diameter holes for these safety chain U-bolts to go through. Parts are a powder coated steel. It's very sturdy and corrosion resistant. The part is made in the USA. Now if you use it as a gooseneck the specs on this will be gross towing weight of 30,000 pounds. Vertical load limit or pin weight capacity of 7,500 pounds. And this is the standard gooseneck diameter ball size of 2 5/16"But that should do it for the review on the B&W Custom Underbed Installation Kit for the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch.
