Just thought I would update my question about the RAM newer factory puck and goose neck system.
Most people have just said, if the hole is there for a goose neck ball, my B&W companion hitch should work.
Here's the reply I just received from Stephanie at B&W.
Thank you for your inquiry.
Unfortunately with the Ram factory puck system you would have to purchase a new base for the truck. You would be able to still use your current coupler head. The gooseneck socket in the Ram puck system has a ball bearing system inside of it and there is not a way to anchor a hitch in that socket, to prevent it from freely spinning.
Part#RVB3600 is the 25K stationary Companion base for the Ram puck system.
Part#RVB3670 is the 20K manual slider Companion base for the Ram puck system.
I will let you know that there has been a very high demand for our products, so you could likely resell the base you have currently. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
Have a great day!
So if I do upgrade to a '19 or newer, I will have to purchase a new main base and if wanted, I could just keep my upper swivel hitch for the new base. BUT I cannot use my B&W square drop in companion with the new RAM goose neck.
Hope this helps someone else with a similar question.
Have a great afternoon!
