Manufacturer: B&W
Manufacturer Part #: RVK3270
Thoroughbred Diesel Part #: BNWRVK3270
Fitment Notes: Universal

The versatile new 18,000-pound Patriot rail-mounted slider complements B&W's full line of hitches and is built to exacting specifications for smooth, flawless and virtually inaudible operation. Unlocking the slider hitch is made effortless, even on irregular terrain, via the locking mechanism's gear-reduced cam ratio design, which gives the user mechanical advantage. The Patriot's two, solid one-inch tubular steel carriage rails are designed with sturdy center supports that prevent the rails from deforming or binding as a result of flexing under load. Hourglass-shaped rollers convey the carriage mechanism with fluid motion, regardless of topography. Once unlocked, the hitch is free to slide back into its maneuvering position and afterward, it glides up to its locked position just in front of the rear axle. The Patriot 18K slider makes it easy to engage and disengage a trailer, as well. Thanks to its cam-lock design and three-quarter-inch-thick wrap-around jaws, an operator can couple or uncouple any trailer, regardless of the lay of the land. Pivot arms feature tough polyurethane bushings that allow the engaged coupler head to pivot smoothly, and the fully articulating head is cushioned by an integrated leaf spring. B&W Trailer Hitches specializes in designing and engineering trailer hitches and aftermarket truck/trailer accessories, and is proud of its reputation as an exceptional U.S.-based manufacturer and innovator.
