Companion Slider newest addition to B&W Trailer Hitches RV hitch family

  • The Companion Slider™ is the 5th Wheel RVer’s solution to turning-clearance problems encountered with short bed trucks.

     

    HUMBOLDT, Kansas, May1st, 2013 – B&W Trailer Hitches, a leading U.S.-based manufacturer of heavy duty trailer hitches and aftermarket truck and trailer accessories announced that its new Companion Slider fifth wheel hitch is available for purchase in May 2013.

     

    The Companion Slider took 5 years to develop. “We took time to develop it so that it would be worthy of the B&W Trailer Hitches reputation for quality” stated Marketing Manager, Beth Barlow. The new hitch, that is now part of their family of fifth wheel hitches, made its debut at the SEMA Show in early November. “We are proud to offer a family of fifth wheel hitches to RV enthusiasts. Our goal is to equip dealers with a fifth wheel hitch option for any one of their customers” added Barlow.

     

    In B&W’s unique fashion, the Companion Slider easily converts to a level bed, freeing up your truck bed for other uses. It is engineered with a patent pending automatic latch in both directions and twelve inches of rearward travel. Automatic latches, in both directions, means getting out of the truck only once to move into maneuvering position. It is rated to tow 18,000 pounds of gross trailer weight. It also has three vertical adjustments, 17", 18", 19". This American-made, fifth wheel hitch comes with a five year limited warranty too.

     

    B&W Trailer Hitches specializes in designing and engineering trailer hitches and aftermarket truck and trailer accessories and has a proud reputation as a U.S. based manufacturer and innovator. The company’s workforce makes the Companion Slider entirely in Humboldt, Kansas.

     

    “The Companion Slider was in the design stage for a long time and it’s a great American-made RV hitch that will excite those RVer’s who are looking for a short bed towing solution” said McCall, New Product Engineer for B&W Trailer Hitches.
