First Timer
Have had a few 5th wheel hitches before, but with a goose neck attachment this one the 1st, very satisfied with this product, following instructions the easiest to install. Best of all Made in the USA. If you have a turner over goose neck made my Companion this is the 5th wheel hitch to get!

Worked great with my b&w turnover ball hitch. High quality product that is american made. Very heavy duty (almost too much, weighs a lot ), best to have someone help remove from bed. Really happy with purchase.

Not cheap, but would do again
I made the mistake of not ordering the B&W turnoverball hitch before purchasing this hitch. Should have read a little closer. Price ended up being more than I had anticipated after adding the additional $439. However after installing everything really happy with the results. The install was a breeze except a few holes where a little tight with the powder coating, but not a huge deal.

My buddy has this hitch on his Ford F-250 and absolutely loves it. Decided to take the plunge to pull my new trailer. Wow its heavy duty! Not light either, thats a good thing for something that will be pulling some precious cargo. We had this setup after a few hours (and a few suds) last weekend. Awesome towing setup!

No Rails!!!
I ordered it on a Monday, it was at my house on Wednesday and I installed it on Friday. Pretty easy install, took about 2 hours. I haven't towed with it yet but I'm sure it will do just fine. It's a heavy son of a gun.

Well Built!!
Built bullet-proof tough like all B&W products. I already had the turnover ball mount so installing this was a breeze. It is heavy though so having a helper is a good idea. That is the reason for 4 stars for Ease of Installation. No extra holes in the bed and no rails were the biggest selling point. Glad I purchased it!!

This is the best and most economical part I found. It was an easy installation even for me. I would recommend this to anyone who is thinking of a different company plus I is made in the USA and that means a lot to me having served 22 years in the military. This is the second produce I have from B and W and will ever use any other company.
