The B&W Companion RV 5th Wheel Hitch is available as an accessory to the B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch continuing the B&W tradition of ‘a hitch when you need it, a level bed when you don’t.’
The Turnover Ball hitch is first installed and then the Companion latches into the 2½ inch square hole.
Many RV hitches use mounting rails bolted into the truck bed and when you remove the hitch the mounting rails are still there.
The Companion hitch was the first hitch on the market to have all the mounting rails below the truck bed floor.
It is rated to 18,000 lbs. GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight) and 4500 lbs. VPW (Vertical Pin Weight).
A unique feature of the B&W Companion is its cam-action latching mechanism.
The locking jaws are a full 1 1/8″ thick, providing a worry-free hook-up.
The head pivots from side-to-side (a full 7 degrees) to help prevent binding, as well as from back-to-front.
A single hydraulic shock absorber helps to stabilize the side-to-side motion.
The shock also holds the head level for easier hook-up.
Vibration-dampening polyurethane bushings act as the base for the front-to-back pivot of the unique saddle assembly of the coupler.
The Companion has 3 front-to-back and 3 up-and-down adjustments for optimal turning clearance and weight positioning.
This hitch also works with any bed liner.
B&W plates the cam, the arms, and the jaw assembly to prevent rusting.
The rest of the hitch is gray powder-coated to ensure a long-lasting finish.
Non-marring pads protect the bed of your truck from direct metal-to-metal contact.
The Companion also boasts a sleek, yet rugged design to look like it belongs in the bed of your truck, ready to work.
