How much to get your B&W Companion Slider installed? I am debating between the Companion slider and fixed hitch myself, so it is good to know about the $700 difference.I just purchased a B&W Companion slide hitch for my short bed. We pulled our 5th wheel down to the hill country two weeks ago. No slop/play pulled great, love the puck system easy in and easy out when you need to use the bed of your truck.
I may have not needed the slider hitch , but $700 more for the slider is a lot cheaper than fixing the Cap of the trailer and the Cab and Glass of your truck. Its a piece of mind thing. Good Luck!
I just got my truck with the 5th wheel prep in it last week. Ordered Feb 1st so i don't believe the rumors of that delaying the builds...Does anyone know why Ford can't get the 5th wheel prep package issue straightened out? I had to delete it from my build to get things moving. I mean it is just steel and a wiring harness so WTH??
Man! Your lucky. I ordered 12/23/22, had to delete 5th wheel and bed liner to get order moving. I am set to be built week of June 20th...I just got my truck with the 5th wheel prep in it last week. Ordered Feb 1st so i don't believe the rumors of that delaying the builds...
This is not correct. Lowest a dealer can give you is 10. Region Rep can move to 2.The lowest priority you can get on a retail order is a 10. The default priority is 19. It sounds like they gave you a story or they do not know how it works. Either one is not good news for you.
That is a great price! The best I can find for the same B&W package in the Houston area is $2600 and most of the quotes were $3K or more. Where did you go for your quote?I ordered mine in January and got it in April, but had to remove the 5th wheel prep package. My dealer showed me the email from their Ford rep that said my truck wouldn't be scheduled unless I removed the 5th wheel prep. I got a quote the other day of $2,400 for BW flip ball gooseneck and slider companion installed.
