The Companion would not make a difference on whether you could use airbags or not. It is simply the hitch.......the interference comes from the mounting systems underneath.
Just as a note....sometimes this type of question will be answered better on the 5th wheel RV forums. I have to go there when I had hitch questions. Usually you can get multiple answers to hitch questions fairly quickly.
Anyway here is the FAQ section on B&W addressing your question...it is like the 4th question down or so.
Doing a google search had multiple results...some had no problems installing using the turnover ball while others did have to do some mods. Try googling "B&W turnover ball with air bags Ford F350"
FAQ - Turnoverball? - Gooseneck Hitch | B & W Trailer Hitches
Also some Google results on forums
B&W turnover ball and ride-rite airbags
Usually you just have to tell the dealer what hitch frame mounting setup you have and they will get your Dad setup with the proper fitment.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools
