Video Transcript for Reese Accessories and Parts 8339 Review

Today we're going to review part 8339. This is the Reese fold-down gooseneck trailer hitch. This fold-down gooseneck hitch is designed for use with vehicle-specific mounting rails. This hitch will bolt using the included mounting hardware right here, to the vehicle-specific mounting rails. We would recommend for you to go on our website and under our fitguide put in your year and model of vehicle. That would tell you if they do have vehicle-specific mounting rails that you could use on your vehicle, to attach this to it. The platform and the ball itself is rated for 25,000 pounds gross vehicle towing rate, and 6,250 pounds vertical load weight. The fold-down design allows unrestricted use of your truck bed when you're not towing.

You just pull up on this here, the ball will fold down. Push that back in place, and you have full use of your truck bed. It does take only seconds to raise and lower the ball. Again, just pull up on this, ball would pop up. Again, just lower your .. right there, and you're ready to go.

It uses a heat-treated 2-5/16 diameter gooseneck ball. Has the integrated, as you can see right up here . integrated, drop down spring-loaded safety chain loops. Just hook your safety chain loops to that. Right here, the oversized pull ring allows you to raise or lower the ball. Basically just pull up on it, lower it. Also right here at the top ...

might be hard to see, but on the ball, it does have an integrated grease fitting, which is visible and easily accessible to grease the ball. That does require no alteration of the factory exhaust systems. Again we mentioned, the mounting rails are sold separately. Now we also do sell packages where you can buy the mounting rails for your vehicle, with this included. The dimensions on this, I want to give you a few dimensions. The width on it: 14.5 inches, length is 12 inches and it's 0.25 inch thick. Again, just to demonstrate, now that you have it, you're not towing with it.

It's in the stored position. You have full truck bed access. When you're ready to tow the goosneck. Pull up on this, it will pop up. Push it back down. That would hold it into place, and you're ready to tow with your gooseneck. Now, that should do it for the review on part number 8339, the Reese fold-down gooseneck trailer hitch.

  • Can a Toolbox be Used while Towing a Gooseneck Trailer with a 2001 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • The space needed in front of the gooseneck ball depends on how large the coupler is that fits over the ball. Remember that the coupler can not only rotate on the ball side to side but also tilt forward and back some so you would want to take some measurements without the box installed to determine about how much travel there is at the coupler and then get a box that will fit. The other thing to be concerned about is when making tight turns. If the gooseneck trailer is squared off at...

  • If you have a Fold Down Gooseneck Trailer Hitch like # 8339, that you have referenced, all you have to do is pull on the ring and the ball will fold out. But there are other types of gooseneck hitches that hide the ball in the bed. Some require a handle that exits from under the bed into the driver side wheel well, like # 9460. For this type, you would pull the handle out to release the locking pin, turn the ball over, and push the handle back in to lock it in place. If you can determine...

  • How Does Reese Low-Profile 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Work with a Folding Gooseneck Hitch Ball
  • The head, which is the top most part of hitch # RP30054, is held to the base below it with pins. Just undue the pins and you can lift the head off. The legs are short enough so that if you had a gooseneck ball that folds, such as # 8339 for example, the legs would not interfere with the operation of the gooseneck or the gooseneck coupler on the trailer. The low profile 5th wheel hitch is usually used on flat bed trucks and requires a professional installation. I have linked the install...

The Quick Goose 2 uses a couple of wheel well handles that will engage and disengage the ball without having to climb in the truck bed at all. The hitch...

  • Frame Rails Needed to Install Gooseneck Hitch on 2000 Ford Super Duty
  • Installation rails are needed with the gooseneck hitch. For the Reese Fold Down Gooseneck Hitch, part # 8339 you would need Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation Rail Kit, # 4448.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2003 GMC Sierra 2500 Long Bed for Use with High Rise Adapter
  • I have a solution for you, but the High Rise part # 9480 will not work on the Fold-Down Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 8339 that you referenced as it will only fit the B&W Turnover Ball, the Hide a Goose and Under Bed hitch by Draw Tite, Reese or Bulldog. You could still use an adapter like the Andersen Ultimate Connection part # AM3200 with the # 8339 though. If you are looking for a gooseneck hitch for your 2003 GMC Sierra 2500 long bed that would be compatible with the High Rise you...

The plate itself is 12 x 14-1/2 inches, slightly wider than the hitch you currently have. To install the hitch, you'd first need to completely remove your existing hitch and frame mounting rails.
