Introducing the New and Improved 18K Patriot Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch by B&W. The RVK3270 5th Wheel Hitch is built right here in the U.S.A and has been built to accommodate with the RVR3200 Universal Mounting Rail.
The RVK3270 brings the rail-mounted slider to a new level by offering an automatic latch that will operate in either slide direction. Also included within the array of features is a fully articulating head that will allow 4-way pivoting preventing from any malfunctioning during operation.
A friend has the Companion version of this hitch and loved it and recommended B&W. I did quite a bit of research on B&W as well as the patriot series and found nothing but excellent reviews. I waited for the release of the Patriot Slider 18K last winter because I have a GMC 6.5 bed and was concerned about the distance between the cab and my 5th wheel.
This year I put over 4,000 mile on this hitch and not one single issue. Hookup and release are a breeze as compared to most others I see people fighting with in campgrounds. Based on my experience so far, three friends in my area have purchased this same hitch this year and also love it.
Joe M from SD was terrific to deal with. He put my order together and even let me know when everything was available.
Very pleased, after several, Reese and other brands, this is by far the sweetest operating fifth with hitch I have ever owned. The modular design allows for easy greasing and break down for removal instead of have two grown men break their back try to take one in and out. Longest slide allowance I have ever had and also clean cam locks are safe and very easy to use instead of having to grab a small sledge to open slider as I did on my Reese. Solid lock and unlock of levers even with a grab tool to extend you reach. By far best hitch I've owned! 6 STARS!!!
