The B&W 5th-wheel companion hitch will also work with this gooseneck. Before we begin our installation, we'll go ahead and show you the operation of the gooseneck hitch. We'll pull the handle here straight out, and rotate it clockwise, so that it locks into the open position. Now you'll be able to either insert the ball with the ball up, or flip it over and put the ball down for the storage position. Once a ball is in place, simply take the handle, let it slide all the way back in, and now the ball is secure or locked in place.

Gooseneck Hitch Installation - 2011 Ford F-350

Today on this 2011 Ford F350 were going to install part number DH1204 from Blue Ox. To begin our install, were going to go ahead and lower our spare tire and get it out of our way. Next we also removed the back tire and wheels to make access to the hitch just a little bit easier from the side. Next, we need to locate the factory center punch located on a flap between the wheel wells. In this case, our truck has a bed liner in the way, so what we can do is go ahead and measure underneath the truck and find the mark, and measure to the edge of the bed. This will give us a rough idea of where its at.



Gooseneck Hitch Installation - 2013 Ford F-350

Today on our 2013 Ford F350 we'll be installing the Blue Ox Diamond hitch under bed goose neck trailer hitch, part number DH1204. To begin our test install first note we've already gone ahead and lowered and removed the spare tire. Then we'll remove both sets of rear wheels. Next to begin our install we'll need to remove the back section, or tail pipe, of the exhaust. Note, you can lower it, but it'll still be in the way. It's easier just to go ahead and unbolt it here at the rear flange.



Gooseneck Hitch Installation - 2011 Ford F-250

Today on this 2011 Ford F250 were going to install part number c640-644. To make things a little easier were going to remove the spare tire, and the rear wheels that way it makes things easier to see and get to to attach the hardware. To begin our installation well go ahead and mark a hole in the truck bed. Now well go by the dimensions listed in the instructions. Well go ahead and measure from the edge of the truck. In this case, its going to be 46 inches.



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Ford F-350

Today in our 2012 Ford F-350, we're going to be installing the Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part number 9460-48. Our first step is going to be to lower the rear exhaust tailpipe. To do this, I've found it's easiest to go ahead and remove the rear bracket fasteners and three flange fasteners, and go ahead and remove the tailpipe from the truck. Next, we'll remove the hangers here. First, we'll spray them with some spray lubricant, and then remove the rubber isolators. This will allow us easier access in between the frame ramps.



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today we are going to be working on this 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty and we are going to be showing you how to install part number 9460-48 from Draw-Tite. As you can see we have already removed the spare tire just to get it out of the way because we are going to need to access up underneath here. Next we are going to have to remove the heat shield. We are going to take off the bolts located here and here. There should be two at the top of the frame as well. Now we are going to remove our exhaust bracket at this location here. If you can see, there is an exhaust bracket back here towards the front of the vehicle we are going have to remove that one too by removing the two bolts that are holding up the exhaust bracket from the cross member. 00:45



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today, on this 2006 Ford F-250 Diesel, we will be installing Hide-a-Goose part number 9460-48. The first thing we want to do in preparation of installing our gooseneck assembly is go ahead and lower your exhaust down. Depending on your model year, this being a 2006, we just need to remove the rear most hanger here, but I actually want to take the whole bracket down off of the frame rail because we are going to be installing a new bracket piece to help lower the exhaust once the gooseneck is installed. There is just one bolt to the side of the frame we just want to set that off to the side because we will be reusing that bolt and flange nut assembly there. Now that we have the exhaust lowered, we can go ahead and slide our cross members into place. You do want to note that the two cross members that come with the installation kit are different. The front cross member has two extra holes here in the middle whereas the rear one does not. So, before we slide those into place we do want to install our carriage bolts into position because once we rails in place we will not be able to get the carriage bolts into place. We are going to be using 5/8 carriage bolts in these positions here. 1:05



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today on this 2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty we will be installing Hide-A-Goose part number 9460-48. Before we get started we need to do a couple of things in preparation. First thing we are going to do is go ahead and lower the spare tire and get it out of our way. We also want to remove the heat shield from this section directly over the exhaust and over the axle well. And then we also need to lower the exhaust off of its rear most hanger. With those three things done we can actually go up inside the bed and start by drilling our hole in the bed. We need to check with the directions to verify the appropriate length that you need to mark and drill your hole at. On this particular long bed model we are going to be measuring from the end of the bed here. My dimension on this long bed model will be 46-3/16 inches. We just want to center that mark in between the wheel wells. 00:51



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Ford F-250

Today we are going to install part numbers 9470 and 4430, a Hide-a-Goose gooseneck hitch, on a 2006 Ford F-250. We will go ahead and lower the exhaust. Now, there is a mount in front of the axle that you reach in from underneath the bed to get to it. Take out two nuts, and you can lower the exhaust that way. And then we will go to the back of this whole assembly and pull it off to the side. The next thing we need to do is to remove the bracket from the vapor tube, which is this object right here - this is your vapor tube, and this is your wire harness. What is going to happen is we are going to take this bracket and we are going to put it sideways and remount it with the provided bracket that comes in the kit. It is bolted onto the side of the frame here, so we have got to take off that nut. You can pull it out. I am just going to rotate it just like this, install our bracket, and what this does is it provides room for the bracket that fits on the outside of the frame to install the gooseneck hitch. We will take our nut-and-bolt assembly from the outside in. Next what we are going to do is take down this shield here - again, to give us some more work room to install the hitch.



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Rail Kit Installation - 2008 Ford Super Duty Pickup

Today we are going to install part numbers 9460 and 4430. This is a Hide-a-Goose install kit for a 2008 Ford Super Duty pickup. This is a diesel version with a 6-foot bed. Next we are going to create some working room beneath the vehicle. We are going to take off this heat shield temporarily, and we are going to lower our exhaust system, too. That way we will have plenty of room to work with to put the head assembly between the two rails. This is the second exhaust bracket we need to lower, too. Once you have the secondary one down you can go ahead and actually pull the exhaust down a little bit out of the way to give you some more working room. Next, go ahead and loosen up the bed on this truck. It gives us a little bit easier working space underneath the vehicle. And once we get all the components installed underneath we can set the bed back in. We are just going to loosen the bed up, put some blocks in it, and maybe raise it 1-1/2 inches or so. Next, we will go ahead and mark off the bed so we know where to drill the hole. What you want to do is find the center rib and measure back on the bed, per the instructions. On our 6-foot bed, in this particular case, it is 47-7/8 inches. So from the back edge of the bed itself you want to mark off 47-7/8 inches and then you want to center it in between the fender wells. It is kind of handy to use these edges of the bed itself. We are looking at 24-1/2 to the center. And what we will do next is go ahead and punch our mark, just enough so we can see a dimple on the bottom side of the pickup, because we will save drilling the hole for one of the last things we need to do. We just loosened the bed and we have got it propped up with these blocks right here. And on the 6-foot bed, it looks like it is a little bit tail heavy, so we have got plenty of space up in front.





Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty Gooseneck Questions and Answers


  • Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2002 Ford Super Duty with 6-3/4 ft Bed
  • If you are looking for a gooseneck hitch that a Curt X-5 adapter could be installed into for your 2002 Ford F250 with a 6-3/4 inch bed you would want the B and W Gooseneck hitch part # BWGNRK1108. This will work with the Curt X5 part # 16310. However, since you have a short bed truck you would need a hitch with a slider to allow you to make 90 degree turns while towing. So you would still want the # BWGNRK1108, but instead of the X5 you would want the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer...

I have a co worker here who has a similar setup and said most fifth wheel hitches will not work for the reason you are saying and also due to the frame of the truck making it impossible to attach the rails as they are designed to be installed.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty Towing a 36 ft Layton Toy Hauler
  • Anytime you have the choice between a gooseneck hitch and a fifth wheel hitch to pull a fifth wheel trailer, I always recommend a fifth wheel hitch. The fifth wheel hitch will provide more clearance between your truck and trailer, especially when making sharp turns with your truck. The fifth wheel hitch will also provide more stability for the truck and trailer when towing. With a fifth wheel hitch, the king pin on the trailer can attach directly to the hitch.

  • Comparing the Curt Spyder and Pro Series Gooseneck Trailer Hitches for 5th Wheel Rails
  • First, I have included a link to all of the gooseneck hitches we carry that fit in 5th wheel rails. The Curt Spyder, # 16085, has a low profile design and it is heavier than the Pro Series plate style hitch # 49080. Besides that, there really are not a lot of differences. The big advantage that the Pro Series hitch has is that it can be oriented so that the ball is closer to the back of the truck for more clearance when towing with a short bed truck. For me, I like the Pro Series...

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer to Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation on a 2006 Ford F-250/F-350 Super Duty

The first type attached to the 5th wheel trailer pin box and has a gooseneck coupler at the other end. For this type and a short bed truck, I recommend the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler, # AM3139. This adapter features height adjustability from 11-3/4 inches to 14-3/4 inches. It also has an 8 inch offset to provide more...

  • Without knowing which installation kit was used to install the hitch that was on the vehicle previously I cannot say for certain if the holes will line up, but there is a fair chance that they will. I would recommend installing the fifth wheel rails, and using a rail mounted gooseneck ball like the Draw-Tite model, part # 6002 or Curt # 16085. Adapting the fifth wheel rails to accept a gooseneck ball is much simpler and usually less expensive that using an adapter on a gooseneck ball...
