For the B&W, you're essentially buying a gooseneck hitch called their Turnover Ball. It's a great setup because it leaves you with a perfectly empty bed when you remove it:
Then, like you said, you buy their Companion Fifth Wheel hitch that goes into the gooseneck hole. The new ones are pretty awesome in that they install without needing tools. The old ones were pretty simple- 2 U-Bolts and a drawdown bolt, but I'll admit- the green eyed monster has me wanting for the new one.
The Companion hitch comes apart in 2 pieces making it pretty easy to install/remove by yourself:
YES, I feel like a walking/talking B&W commercial. I like the hitch that much.
But no, I don't get any compensation from them!
