B&W 5th wheel

has anyone ever used the gooseneck to 5th wheel on a B&W? where it drops into the GN. I cant remember the name. Just wondering if i can use that to pull 5th wheels or if i should get the rail system.

I have one, it's called the Companion Hitch. Love it. No problems and works great. Rated for up to 18,000# fiver. Goes in and out real quick.

I don't think you will regret it by any means. out of all the hitches I have seen/used the quality of B & W's products are 2nd to none. I don't think I would go back to any draw bar after using my B&W tow-n-stow..#1 in my book. Everyone I have talked to about the companion has nothing but good things to say about them.

Got the companion on order. Thanks for the help guys. I have the GN obviously, and have used it once. i LOVE the turnover part of it. Just gotta keep the dirt out of the hole.

There should be two holes in the square bar that goes in where your gooseneck ball fits.. One of those is there just for use with bedliners...
