How to Install the B and W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty


inaudible 00:00:00 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty. We're going to be taking a look at the BMW Companion fifth wheel trailer hitch. This is what our fifth wheel hitch looks like in the bed of our truck. It's going to work with the standard underbed gooseneck hitch and give you the versatility of your fifth wheel and your gooseneck. What's going to set this hitch apart from others is when you remove it, you're going to have total bed access, as opposed to some of the others, where they're going to have rails that are going to cross the center of your bed. This particular hitch is set up for long bed trucks.

If you have a short bed truck, you're going to want to look into the slider version.One thing I do want to mention: if you are going to remove this to give you total bed access, it is a little heavy, so I do recommend getting a second person. However, the head can be removed separate from the base by taking these two pins out. The base can be removed from the gooseneck by loosening this bolt. The head is going to give us four directions of articulation: side to side, front to back for easier hookups. Our jaw is going to be a dual jaw for 360 degrees of context around your kingpin to reduce the amount of chucking, as opposed to some of the others out there.

Now, to open your jaws, you simply remove the pin on the handle, slide the handle back. Once you back into your trailer, it's automatically going to close the jaws. Then you simply replace your pin to lock it in place.This hitch is also going to give you the ability to adjust the height, and forwards or backwards, depending on your truck. It's also going to offer a very wide base to give you excellent stability when towing your trailer. You're also going to have an adjustable rubber pad.

It's going to fit in your lower corrugation to keep your fifth wheel hitch from moving around.We're going to have a 5,000 pound vertical load limit and a maximum tow rating of 20,000 pounds, but you never want to exceed the truck's maximum capacity.That'll do it for the look at the BMW Companion fifth wheel trailer hitch on our 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty.

We've installed the B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1016-5W side of this setup on a 2016 GMC Sierra 2500, and then for a video about how to install the 5th wheel adapter I'd check out the standard review video. Both are linked here for you to check out.
