Companion Slider - 5th Wheel Hitch

Product details:

Need room to maneuver?

Of course you do! The Companion Slider 5th Wheel Hitch gives you the extra room you need. 

We know what it’s like to tow with a short bed truck! That’s why we designed our slider  hitch to give you twelve inches of slide, so you can have the extra room to maneuver your fifth-wheel. And it’s a Companion so you’ll love the ride.
 
It's removable! Free up your truck bed when you are not towing. The Companion Slider utilizes the B&W Turnoverball under-bed mounting system. 

Part Number: RVK3405

  • 12" of movement, for turning and maneuvering clearance in shortbed trucks.
  • Automatically latches in both directions- only get out of the truck once to move into maneuvering position.
  • Tight tolerances in sliding mechanism, moves smoothly without the rattle.
  • Three vertical adjustments, 17", 18", 19".
  • Fully articulating coupler head allows front to back and side to side pivoting.
  • 1" thick, wrap-around jaws fit kingpin perfectly, eliminating sloppy starts and stops.
  • Polyurethane bushings provide a quiet, rattle free towing experience.
  • Utilizes the B&W Turnoverball under-bed mounting system. Pull a Gooseneck or a 5th Wheel with the same system.
  • Can be removed (two people!) for a clean bed with no rails. No mounting rails means using your truck for more than towing.
  • Product Weight:  Base 212 lbs, Coupler 75 lbs
  • Footprint: 34.75" Wide x 45" Deep
  • Measurement from center of hitch post to front edge (cab-side) of hitch: 15"
20000 LB. GTW
5000 LB. VTW
The Companion Slider slides back “12 and locks in that position during tight turning maneuvers. The 12” of adjustment to the back should only be used when extra turning room is needed. For regular towing, the Companion should be locked in the forward position. Towing with the slider hitch in the back position places the trailer tongue weight behind the rear vehicle axle which may cause unsafe driving characteristics in your vehicle.

Companion Slider - 5th Wheel Hitch Review

Happy Camper!
Review by Keith Roberts From Roseville, California

Problem resolved! Worked With Travis McCall at B&W and he determined that a couple rubber washers were missing, creating a gap that caused the clunk. He sent me the washers and I installed them in a few seconds and clunk disappeared. We have made several trips all over the western US with our Solitude and it is solid. Cruising on a freeway you hardly know you have a 16,000 trailer behind you. Thanks B&W!


Previous Review (November 2015)
Just installed a Turnoverball and Companion Slider in my new 2016 F-350 Super Duty Short Bed. Seemed like a perfect towing solution for my 5th wheel trailer. First, this is a well made product. Easy to use and remove from your vehicle. Only complaint I have is that the tolerances required for the slider mechanism to latch allow the slider to move from front to rear and rear to front every time you break and pull away from an intersection. This movement creates an un-nerving 'clunk', both as you brake and accelerate. Had I known this I probably would have gone with a different model, my wife doesn't even want to ride in the cab. Was told by Ashlee that this is considered normal and still safe. I forwarded videos to her so they can evaluate but it seems like a big problem to me. Consider this factor before spending close to $3000 on a Companion Slider setup.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
B&W Came Through
Review by Michael Williams From St Charles

After having issues with the companion. B&W took my problems seriously and I am now on the road with confidence. Most of all the problems was with the installation of the turnoverball. Done by a dealer where I live. I drove to Humboldt, KS to the B&W manufacturing facility. Waiting for me were 5 engineers eager to find out what was going on. B&W engineers worked on my truck and got the companion to lay flat into my bed. I was amazed. There is a issue with GM 2015 trucks that have a crown in the bed. Installers must be very careful to make sure that this system is properly installed before the customer ever leaves. Not installing the system correctly could cause damage to the bed of the truck. B&W thank you so much for taking the time to make all this right with me. Your dedication to your products, and standing behind them is just something we never hardly see anymore in the USA. American Made and pride is what this country was built on. This is the best Fifth Wheel slider I have ever owned, and it slides with ease. Please delete my last review, As it does not truly reflect,what you have done for me. THANK YOU MICHAEL

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
" Not enough o's in smooth, to describe it".

Bought this hitch for my 2003 F-250 S/B. This is by far the best hitch I've ever pulled with. I pulled to Myrtle Beach S.C. And honestly had to keep looking in the rear view to make sure my trailer was still there, it was just that smooth. The slider is perfect for the short bed also, just flip the handle and you slide into the perfect position for close maneuvering. I highly recommend it.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Bought this new slider fifth wheel for my 2007 F-350 short bed dually and I think its the best fifth wheel hitch on the market. I recently bought a used 1997 Sunnybrook fifth wheel. I'm glad I bought the slider because the square style over hang of the camper comes in mighty close to my rear windows without making to sharp of a turn. That extra foot of clearance make it able to do a full L-back with four inches of clearance between the cab and the trailer body. Every pickup I own has the turnover ball. This is my first fifth wheel hitch I've bought and I'm very happy with it. B-) Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

B & W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitches Beat Them All Hands Down!
Review by Verna Reid From Midland, Tx
Posted on 08/27/2014
I bought my truck which had a B & W Turnoverball in it when we got it. We bought a camper shortly thereafter and purchased the B & W fifth wheel companion to pull the camper. It was amazing! It's sturdy, rugged, and made to haul! The adjustments available are all that could be asked for! I can't recommend this enough, and we won't ever be without one in any truck we own. Gooseneck or fifth wheel, we're ready to roll. Because of ours and what our family and friends have seen it do, there have been a bunch of converts made in those that know us!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Best Hitch Made
Review by Steve Brown From Virgie, Kentucky
Posted on 06/16/2014
This is the best hitch on the market today. Drive into any campground, you won't have to look far to see a B&W in the bed of a truck. That alone should tell you something about the quality of this product. Great company, wonderful customer service.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
VERY Helpful, best customer service!
Review by C Grace From Topeka, Kansas
Posted on 03/18/2014
I made several phone calls to B&W spoke with Ashley, every phone call was handled with the best customer service I have received in a long time! Yes there is some weight to the two pieces but unless you are injured I believe most can handle. The first ride with this hitch was in windy conditions and other than needing to adjust our air brakes, very touchy, the ride was great! Love made in America with American workers and customer service! Thank you Ashley!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not a better hitch available
Review by Brian Schaad From Columbus, NE
Posted on 01/20/2014
This was my first gooseneck and 5th wheel hitch. Having a short bed truck and a 43' toyhauler, this hitch makes towing a snap! Whether towing straight ahead or backing into a tight spot, this hitch makes it all easier.

I had no idea that a turnoverball slider was available until the parts rep at the RV dealer mentioned it, and with its ease of use and great features I feel obligated to help get the word out. THANK YOU B&W for one AWESOME product and we will definitely thank you in person when we take the tour this coming May when we will be in Topeka, Ks.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
