Video Transcript for Curt Gooseneck C-52 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Over-Bed Folding Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch. Now the fold down ball design of this hitch will help keep your truck bed free of any obstructions. Basically to fold it down all you have to do is take your T handle, pull it until the pin slides in and then just open this door. Pivot the ball down with the T handle and when you do that, if you let go of it, that T handle will drop into those slots and hold it into place. You can close the spring loaded door over there and then you have the full access of your truck bed. Now the easy to grab T handle will let you raise or lower the ball even if you're wearing thick gloves.

In other words you open the door, you can grab it just like that, pull the ball right up, drop your door down, slide the pin in. The stainless steel safety pin right here and the pivot spring will help prevent binding. It also prevents this door from coming ajar during towing on any rough or unstable terrain. The gooseball itself is permanently attached so it cannot be loosened or stolen. It is a 2 and 5/16 diameter chrome plated trailer ball, fits all standard gooseneck trailers. Now the plate on this, the top plate, is 3/8 of an inch thick, has the 6 holes for installation, comes with the mounting hardware to install it.

Also comes with the spring loaded U bolt safety chains I've already installed. You can see right here, this is where you hook your safety chains to and the grade A hardware is what would go into these 6 holes. Now this whole hitch is protected by a nice highly durable carbide powder coat finish to help resist rust and corrosion. I also want to show you, there is an easy to access grease fitting if you pull that pin. When you lower that ball down, right at the very bottom of the ball there is that inaudible 00:01:40 fitting to grease the ball itself. There is no tools needed to fold that ball down as you've just seen by me demonstrating it.

Now this part does require the Curt Over-Bed Installation Kits. I recommend for that is to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you the installation kit that would be needed. The gross trailer weight capacity on this is 30,000 pounds. The ton weight capacity is 7500 pounds. That should do it for the Curt Over-Bed Folding Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch..

Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch - C-52

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (2 Customer Reviews)

by:

This hitch was purchased to replace old drop down gooseneck, which ball had become loose and sloppy. This hitch fit perfectly in the place of the old one, only took about and hour to replace. It is a much better design, easier to pull up from the down position, and the hidden safety chain loops are much nicer. We pull a 20ft eight horse stock trailer or a 30ft fifth wheel travel trailer with a goose neck extension regularly behind our 2001 dodge diesel, and this product has been Great! 401290

  • For your 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 short bed the correct Curt Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch and Hardware kit is part # C61341-52. This is the # C-52 you mentioned and the install kit part # C61341.

  • Is There a Replacement Ball Available for Curt OverBed Gooseneck Hitches
  • For the Curt Overbed Gooseneck Hitches like the part # C61301-52 I have a solution for you that I can recommend, but Curt does not sell replacement balls for this hitch. Instead you would have to replace the top plate assembly with part # C-52.

  • Is Curt Overbed, Folding Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Available by Itself without an Install Kit
  • Yes, Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch Item # C-52 is the hitch by itself. The install kit by itself is # C61505. The hitch part is designed to fit a cut-out that is 11 inches side to side and 7-1/2 inches front to back. The hitch plate is 14 inches by 12 inches. I have linked the instructions for you.

  • Will the B and W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Fit a Curt Gooseneck Hitch
  • We have fifth wheel adapter options for Curt gooseneck hitches, but adapters like the Companion or the Hi-Rise will not work with Curt gooseneck hitches. The B and W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch is only compatible with B and W gooseneck hitches, so it will not work with a Curt gooseneck hitch. Turnoverball is actually a trademark of B and W, but Curt does have the Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch, # C-52. If this is the hitch you have, then I recommend using a fifth-wheel-to-gooseneck adapter...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch For 2012 Dodge 5500 Cab & Chassis With Steel Flat Bed
  • I have a solution for your 2012 Dodge Ram 5500 Cab and Chassis with the flat bed. The Reese Elite Series Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part # RP30158-52 is not a fit for your truck. I recommend the Curt Universal Folding Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit, part # C61502 for the underbed part of the system, and part # C-52 for the above bed portion of the system. I spoke with my contact at Curt about installation of this system and they said the that since it is a custom installation, it may...

  • Is there an Offset Gooseneck Ball for Factory Gooseneck Hitch in a 2015 Ford Truck
  • Reese, who makes the factory gooseneck hitch for the 2015 Ford trucks, does not have an offset gooseneck ball that fits that particular mount. but another possible option is an offset gooseneck coupler such as # BWTEXA4200. It features a 10 inch offset, which is going to be much more than any ball would have. It fits a 2-5/16 inch ball and has an outer diameter of 4 inches.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 1996 Ford F-450
  • 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 1996 Ford F-450 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.

  • Gooseneck Rail Kit and Hitch Recommendation for a 1988 Chevy V30
  • I spoke to my contact at Curt and he informed me that the only gooseneck option they have for you setup would be to go with a Universal Gooseneck Rail Kit # C61502 and then a Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch # C-52. I attached installation instructions for both products for you to check out.

  • Folding Gooseneck Trailer Hitch that Will Leave the Bed Clear when Not in Use
  • I have never heard of a folding 5th wheel hitch but there are plenty of folding gooseneck trailer hitches available for the big 3 domestic truck manufacturers. I think a gooseneck hitch is what you are talking about. As an example, take a look at # C-52. If you want to tow a 5th wheel trailer, not a gooseneck trailer, you would need a regular 5th wheel hitch. There are some options for 5th wheel hitches that, once removed, leave pretty much the whole bed clear. I would really need...

You could then use Curt hitch # C-52 or # C65500. A custom hitch for a Ford F-450 flatbed is not available.

  • 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter for a 2003 GMC Sierra 3500 Crew Cab with Curt Gooseneck Hitch # C-52
  • I may have an option that will work for you, however, the Curt X-5 Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Adapter, # C16210, will not fit in the Curt Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch, # C-52, that you have installed in your 2003 GMC Sierra 3500. The X-5 adapter was designed to work with the Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store Gooseneck Hitch, # C60625. We do have other fifth wheel to gooseneck adapters that should work for you. One of our most popular adapters is the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Fifth Wheel...

  • Underbed Installation Brackets for Gooseneck Hitch On 2010 Ram 2500
  • In order to find the underbed installation brackets compatible with the overbed gooseneck hitch you have, we will need to know the manufacturer of the gooseneck. If the gooseneck you removed from another truck is either the Curt Folding Ball # C-52 or Flat Plate gooseneck hitch # C65500, you can use the Curt Custom Installation Kit for Curt Overbed, Folding Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # C61529. If your exisiting gooseneck is not a Curt hitch, I will be happy to find the correct...

  • Are Installation Instructions Available for the Curt Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch T-Handle
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt Mfg. and he said that the Curt Fold Ball Gooseneck Hitch Replacement T-Handle, # C-123, is designed for the Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch, # C-52, only. He explained that at this time there are no installation instructions available for this part, but that you will just need to remove the screw in pin from the broken T-Handle and replace it with the new T-Handle and pin that are included with the replacement handle.

  • CURT Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 1997 Ford F150
  • The gooseneck hitch I would recommend for your 1997 Ford F150 would be the Curt Quick Goose 2 Gooseneck Hitch with Installation Kit # C630-637. This is confirmed to fit your vehicle and should work very well for you. I attached installation instructions for you to check out also. The Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch # C-52 that you referenced is a universal hitch that could potentially work for you, but since it is not custom installation kit it would take longer to install, and specific...

  • Gooseneck Balls for a 2014 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Gooseneck Package
  • I believe you are looking for what is called an offset ball. There are currently only straight, regular balls for the 2014 Ram 2500 short bed with factory gooseneck package. You could use # C60601 or # RP30140. An offset ball will not offer all that much more additional clearance since they only move the pivot point back a maximum of 5 inches. In most cases this isn't enough if clearance is already an issue when making tight turns.

  • Will the Curt Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch Fit on a 2003 Ford F-250
  • For your 2003 Ford F-250, I would recommend looking into a custom fit option like the Curt Quick Goose 2 Gooseneck Hitch and Installation Kit, # C640-644. The installation kit for this hitch was designed specifically for your truck making the installation much easier. I have attached a link to the installation instructions for you to check out.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit Recommendation for a 2004 Ford F-150 Super Cab
  • The Curt Folding Gooseneck Ball, # C-52, goes with Curt Universal Installation Kit, # C61502. Since the install kit is Universal, it is designed to fit many different vehicles but an exact application guide is not available for it. But, there are numerous custom kits that will fit your 2004 Ford F-150 Super Cab. I have included a link to the available options for you to view. A popular option for a gooseneck hitch is B&W hitch # BWGNRK1104. Since you have a 6-1/2 foot bed I recommend...

  • Availability of Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for 1974 Ford F-250
  • I have a solution for you, but there is not a custom fit gooseneck hitch option for your 1974 Ford F-250. Instead, you will want to use the Curt Universal Folding Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit # C61502 with the Curt Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch # C-52 in order to install a gooseneck hitch in your truck. Since the rail kit is a universal-type fit, you will likely need to drill holes in the frame of your truck in order to install the rails. The rails have been confirmed to fit pre-1980 Ford...
