The Patriot 16K has a GTW of 16,000 lbs. and a tongue weight rating of 4,000 lbs. The Patriot 18K has a GTW of 18,000 lbs. and a tongue rating of 4,500lbs. The Patriot 18K also has a slider model that provides 12" of slide for maneuvering a short bed truck. The Patriot mounts to your bed with vehicle specific custom rails which must be purchased separately.

The B&W Patriot Series 5th wheel hitch has a fully articulating head that allows front to back and side to side pivoting. There are three height adjustments from 16"-19" and 4" of front-to-back adjustment for the non-sliding models. The cam action latching handle makes for an easy release even when parked on non-level sites. The hitches wide stance was engineered for improved stability and strength. The 3/4" thick, wrap-around jaws fit the kingpin perfectly eliminating sloppy starts and stops and the polyurethane bushings provide a quiet, rattle free towing experience. B&W knows that you have a lot riding on your hitch and that a hitch is only as good as the quality of its steel and the welds that hold it together. For that reason, they only trust and use American-made steel and insist on making the welds under their roof. When it comes to B&W you can count on products that are made right here in the USA and are SAE-J2638 certified. B&W stands behind the products with a limited lifetime warranty.
