Quality workmanship, solid hitch system, and easy to use.
2016 was a milestone year for me so I did the research, talked to a dealer, and had a 2016 Silverado built for me. I looked at the numbers, figured everything out, and built a truck for me that can pull anything on this earth that I would want to pull... now I needed a hitch system that would keep up. After looking at what was out on the market and reading everyone's reviews, I purchased (and had installed) the B&W Turnover ball and then purchased and installed this companion hitch. (*The fact that this piece just slides into the turnover ball receiver is amazing, and the fact that I can pull it out to use my goose neck hitch or have a level bed is awesome!) I wasn't in any hurry putting the companion hitch together and getting it installed so I had a friend over and was talking with him about a few different things while I did the install. I did the complete install by myself. Looked at my watch when I was done and saw that two hours had passed; not bad. Probably would have taken half the time if I wasn't socializing. I am pulling a 44' Heartland Cyclone 4000 fifth-wheel toy hauler. After weighing the trailer with everything in it, it comes to 19,450lbs. When I say everything, I mean I was putting stuff in it that wouldn't normally be in it just to add weight (like every hand tool I own and a few small power tools)... and it came to 19,450lbs. I installed this hitch system in May 2016 and have used it four times so far. This hitch system provides an extremely quiet and smooth ride; so smooth, in fact, that my wife and son fell asleep while driving down the road. I was confident that there was a solid connection between the truck and trailer as I was hooking it up and I had no concerns about the hitch system as I drove down the road. If you are looking for a solid, dependable, fifth-wheel hitch system, and you do not have a need to pull more than 20,000lbs, look no further than here... this is the hitch system for you. James

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.

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!!

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.

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!

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.

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!
