Review Of The B And W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch With Slider

B& W 18K Patriot Slider 5th Wheel Hitch review

Today we’re going to be taking a look at the B& W Patriot fifth wheel trailer hitch with slider. With an 18,000 pound capacity, the part number is BWRVK3270.Now the need for a sliding system like the Patriot is going to come up when you’re trying to haul a camper with a short bed truck. It’s just not feasible to navigate around with the limited maneuverability you’ll have before they camper wants to make contact with the cab of the truck. With the Patriot system, it’s able to move a full 12″ from the towing position back into the maneuvering position. This is going to allow us the extra room we need from the front of the camper to the rear of our cab to help us navigate through the campsites, parking lots, things like that. When it’s time to haul back down the road, release that lever once again.

They’re designed with 3/4″ thick material. These are designed to really hold up for a long time and a lot of mileage without getting any kind of looseness in here.Another nice touch with the Patriot system is going to be the gray powder coat finish. Usually you’ll see the black. It really helps it stand out and sets it apart from other systems we see out there. B& W of course is made 100% right here in the United States with American steel, so it’s a good product that has a good fit and finish to it.Now when installing our Patriot, we want to drop the tabs that stick down off the bottom they’re going to have holes located in them in the appropriate slots in our rails.

    Video Transcript For B And W Fifth Wheel Bwrvc3200 Review

    Today we’re going to review part number BWRVC3200. This is the Replacement Head Assembly for B& W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch. Has a 16,000 lbs weight capacity. Now, this Head Assembly along with the B& W Base Assembly which is part number BWRVB3200, we sell separately. Those two pieces would make up the B& W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch which we also sell altogether which is part number BWRVK3200.Now this Hitch Head has the 3/4″ thick dual jaws. It’s provides 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact.

    Gives you less rattle and more security than slide-bar jaws. Uses this cam-action latching handle to help prevent binding. Basically, if you unhook the pin and clip, pull it out you can see the handle will actually move towards the cab of the tow vehicle. Basically when you do that, you’ll notice the dual jaws do open up, ready to accept the king-pin.This handle, it has a very simple release even on a level terrain. Also, what happens is when your king-pin slides in here and goes up against the back of these jaws it will close it and the handle would swing forward.

    Then the hole right here would line up. The handle wouldn’t go any further and you can drop your pin and clip in. To keep it in a place. Keep the jaws around the king-pin.The hole is big enough, also you could put a padlock through there for extra security. We do sell those separately.
