Frequently Asked Questions

Why did you build a Companion to fit the Ford Prep Package?

 

Over the years, we’ve seen a few products traditionally sold in the aftermarket picked up by the Big 3 and offered in trucks from the factory to boost their margins.  Some have been successful and some have gone away.  The hitch framework Ford started offering in 2010, put on trucks at the factory, is an attempt to take gooseneck and fifth-wheel hitches in this direction. Ultimately consumers will decide whether they are in favor of this or not. 

What we have been hearing from customers is that they sometimes buy a Ford truck unaware that the hitch prep package is in it.  We also hear that customers feel forced into buying a truck with the hitch prep package because there just aren’t trucks available without it.  There’s nothing like taking away a consumer’s choice and calling it an ‘option’!  The prep package has a list price of $370.

Because Ford’s25K fifth-wheel hitch has a sticker price of $1695 and because we have had many requests for a Companion that will work with Ford’s prep package, we are now offering one. B&W’s Companion compatible with the Ford Prep Package uses the same coupler we have always used, but the base has four points of attachment and retails for $1066.  It is rated at 20K.

So why are you abandoning your single-point attachment and gooseneck option?

 

We still offer the Companion with single-point attachment and it still utilizes an underbed mounting system that can accommodate towing a gooseneck, as well.  In fact, we highly recommend this as your best option, especially if you plan to tow a gooseneck.  Our system (the Turnoverball) offers the ability to turn the ball over and stow it in the receiver.  Ford's gooseneck option includes a bag to stow the ball in when it’s not being used, missing a feature many customer’s desire.

Top of the line product

Easy to install and remove, only issue to to make sure weight is off hitch or the jaws will not release. Well made unit.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

We take pride in our cam-action jaw design. The jaws will release even in tough situations like you described. When you park your trailer and open the hitch handle, the jaws may not open. That is normal. If they do not open, go ahead and pull away from the trailer. Even with the weight and the jaws closed they will open as you pull away.  Thank you for mentioning this Terry. We now have a video explaining more about this. Check under the videos tab.

 

Best hitch made for OEM Ford 5th wheel mount

I am truly impressed with the quality and ease of installation of this hitch. I bought a new 2013 Ford F350 DRW King Ranch with the factory mounting platform and was about to spend 1700 for the factory hitch when I discovered this hitch for less than half the price and it looks way more stout than the factory hitch. Thanks for a well made in the USA product.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Made in the USA makes all the difference!!!!

What truly amazed me was how easy it was to install the Companion OEM 5th wheel hitch. 4 pucks and she is locked in!!! Having pulled with several different brands I recognized right away the ease to hook up. The precision machined locking jaws are so exact that when we went to hook up it only took one attempt. Instead of having to force to close the one piece wrap around jaw as before the Companion's matched twin jaws closed smoothly around the 5th wheel king pin. Well done. Then when we got on the road and we traveled across some rub board interstate highways there was absolutely no chucking sound from the hitch as we have experienced with other brands. And best of all the squeaking sound went away...due to the rubber bushings that the head assembly pivots on. It was so nice to have peace and quiet as we traveled...no chucking and no squeaking. The best part of the Companion OEM 5th wheel hitch is It is Made in the USA!!!! You can feel and hear the pride of workmanship.....Thank you Team Turn Over Ball...job well done.
