Gooseneck Questions and Answers

  • Can I Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2014 Ram 1500 Short Bed with Ram Boxes
  • The issue is not about the type of hitch or trailer, it is the decreased bed width on models that have the Ram Box feature. Customers have told us that they can install a 5th wheel hitch on models with Ram Boxes but it is not recommended by hitch manufacturers. What you would have to do is install a 5th wheel trailer hitch installation kit such as # C16427-204. Then, to tow a 5th wheel trailer without having issues with the Ram Boxes and more narrow bed, you would have to install a Sidewinder...

  • Gooseneck Hitch for a Ford F450 Flatbed Truck
  • If your Ford F-450 has an actual bed and is not a cab and chassis model (with a service bed or flatbed) then you can use the Curt universal folding gooseneck ball rail kit # C61502. You could then use Curt hitch # C-52 or # C65500. A custom hitch for a Ford F-450 flatbed is not available. If you do have a cab and chassis model then you can still use # C65500 but it will require some custom fabrication by having a qualified professional first weld a 1/2 inch steel plate to the frame.

  • Will Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 16085 Fit Reese Adapter # RP30154
  • Yes, the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 16085 is designed to fit industry-standard 5th wheel rails. Since the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154 is also intended to fit standard 5th wheel mounts these will work together.

  • Air Bags for a 2012 Ford F-250 with Factory Installed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • The brackets for air bags and those for the hitch installation kit on your 2012 Ford F-250 are not meant to be stacked. So you will need an air bag kit that mounts in a location that does not interfere with the hitch brackets. That kit could be Firestone Ride-Rite kit # F2550. It mounts on the inboard sides and bottoms of the frame rails. I have included a link to a video showing how they install. Compare this to where the brackets are on your truck to make sure they will work together....

  • Goose Neck Hitch for 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 Short Bed That Sits Closest to Rear Axle
  • We offer quite a few goose neck hitches for your 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 short bed and all can be seen on the link provided. I reviewed the installation instructions for most of these items and the hitch ball location stays within a fairly tight range of 44-inches to 46-inches from the rear edge of the truck's bed. The B and W # BWGNRK1313 that you referenced has its ball 45-1/2-inches from the rear edge. Among those with the smallest (44-inch) distance for ball placement are Reese # 8339-4435,...

  • How Big of a Hole is Drilled in the bed of a 2009 Chevy Silverado 2500 for a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • If you are installing Gooseneck trailer hitch # 9464-35 you will drill a 3-1/2 inch hole for the Gooseneck ball. If you are looking at the B&W installation kit # BWGNRK1067-5W for a 2009 Chevy Silverado 2500 long bed then it is a 4 inch hole. I have included links to the installation instructions for both hitches for you.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty with Air Bags
  • There are several different gooseneck hitches available for your 2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty, but the mounting brackets of your air bags will determine whether a gooseneck hitch can be installed with the air bags. There are two different types of frame brackets for air bags on the Ford Super Duty trucks, one type mounts to the outside of the frame and the other mounts to the bottom and inside of the frame. If the frame brackets for your air bags are mounted to the outside of the...

  • Loose Gooseneck Ball in 2014 Ram 3500 with Factory 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Prep Package
  • If it is just the ball that is moving around some movement is normal. But the ball should move less than 1/16 of an inch in any direction. Movement beyond that indicates a problem. The ball may not be the correct one for your 2014 Ram 3500. Or there could be something wrong with the ball and it is not in the locked position. If it is the hitch itself that is moving around under the bed of the truck then that is a major concern. Do not tow with the truck and take it to a dealership immediately....

  • Will Existing hide-A-Goose Balls Fit Hide-A-Goose Hitch 9467 for 2014 Ram 2500
  • The ball that is with Hide-A-Goose # 9467 is different than the balls and accessories used in other Hide-A-Goose hitches. To be sure though I would need to know which ball extender you are using. From what I found, other Hide-A-Goose balls will not fit this particular hitch since it is unique.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2006 Chevy Silverado Cab and Chassis
  • The Curt Flat Plate Gooseneck # C65500 is a multi-fit application that can be used on a cab and chassis truck. Typically, the plate would be placed on top of the flat bed over the rear axle. The Universal Rail Kit, part # C61502 can be used to provide the under bed bracing. Holes would be drilled through the plate, through the bed and into the frame members and the rail kit.

  • Would a 2014 Ford Ecoboost F150 Work Well to Tow a 15k Horse Trailer
  • From the research I did an Ecoboost 2014 Ford F150 would only have about 1/3 of the capacity needed to tow your horse trailer. So I would not recommend you use that as your tow vehicle. You should stick with your F-350.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Installation in 2007 Toyota Tundra Doublecab SR5 with 6-1/2-ft Bed and Tow Package
  • Auto manufacturers get to have the final word on what their vehicles can and cannot do. Your owner's manual will indicate the towing capacity for your particular truck exactly as it is configured or your local dealership can confirm this for you if you provide your truck's VIN number. I was able to find in my research reference to a 10,000 tow rating for versions of the SR5 but I cannot be sure this is accurate for your truck; your owner's manual (or dealership) is the final authority on...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 1996 GMC Topkick Lo-Pro with 12Ft Bed
  • According to my contact at Curt, you could use the Gooseneck Flat Plate, # C65500, and mount it directly to the bed, assuming the bed is at least 1/4 inch thick steel, on your 1996 GMC TopKick Lo-Pro. In order to mount the flat plate to the bed you will need to use at least six 1/2 inch Grade 5 mounting bolts. By using this installation method, he can not guaranty the exact weight capacity but it should be close to 20,000 pounds. Since there are no custom rails available for your truck,...
