Product Details

Product Name: B&W Companion Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch - RVK3405
Manufacturer: B&W
Manufacturer Part #: RVK3405
Thoroughbred Diesel Part #: BNWRVK3405
Fitment Notes: Universal

A brother to the Companion, the Companion Slider uses the same great coupler but with a slider designed to give you 12 inches of extra room for maneuvering. Like every hitch in our Companion series, it offers a jerk-free ride and easy hook-up and removal for a level bed-all without sacrificing sturdiness, reliability, or towing power. Plus, you have the option to tow a fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch with the same system.

B&W Companion Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch Features:

  • Part Number RVK3405
  • 12" of movement, for turning and maneuvering clearance in shortbed trucks
  • Automatically latches in both directions so you only have to get out of the truck once to move into maneuvering position.
  • Tight tolerances in sliding mechanism, moves smoothly without the rattle.
  • 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.

  • Limited Lifetime Warranty

  • I have a 2012 Silverado 2500 HD with a Drawtite turn over ball gooseneck hitch installed. Will a B&W slider hitch work with this? If not can you suggest a hitch that will?

    Ronnie E Jeffreys | 7/4/2022

    No designed for the B&W hitch square receptacle.

  • Will this hitch fit my 2015 chevy silverado 2500hd high country? It has a short bed and a b&w turn over ball system installed already?

    Darrell Law | 8/30/2021

    Yes here is the installation manual.

  • I have the BWRVB3405 installed. My 5th wheel has the Lippert Turning Point Pin Box hitch. What wedge should I be using?

    Darrin E Way | 5/10/2021

  • I have the B&W Fifth Wheel hitch for my 2017 F350, now own 2021 F350. Is there a way to make this hitch work on the new Ford pickup's, with there newnew fifth wheel hitch?

    Troy Hauser | 2/11/2021


  • I have a 2017 Ram Power Wagon 2500 with a Ram Box. Will this or any other 5th wheel hitch you sell fit my truck? I'd really like an Auto Slider, or something comparable.

    Eric Beam | 9/15/2020

    Do you have the 6’5” bed?

  • Do you sell the base of the companion hitch separate? I have a B&W puck hitch that I would like to convert.

    Kevin Burr | 8/21/2020

    No, we do not offer separate.

  • Will this fit my receiver hole where the ball normally goes in my 2007 GMC Sierra ?

    Jerome Schauf | 8/1/2020

    Yes, if you have the B&W turn over ball gooseneck.
