Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Gooseneck 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.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for Attaching to Draw Tite Fold Down Gooseneck Hitch
    The best fifth wheel hitch option we have for a truck like your 2017 Ram 2500 that has the Draw Tite Fold Down Gooseneck hitch # 8839 installed is the Demco Recon hitch part # DM8550045 which secures to the truck bed by grabbing onto the gooseneck hitch ball and due to it's jaw design provided a tight and quiet connection to the fifth wheel trailer. I attached a review video for the Recon for you to check out as well.

  • Fold Down Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation Similar to Atwood B25CL
    The Atwood B25CL that you referenced is a 25k fold down style of gooseneck hitch just like the Draw Tite part # 8339 that you referenced. If you have a universal style of application and need just a hitch plate with a fold down ball this would be a great option.

  • 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...

  • How to Release the Gooseneck Ball on a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD
    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...

  • Flip Down Gooseneck for my 2000 Ford F-250
    We have several solutions for adding a gooseneck to your 2000 Ford F-250 but the Fold-Down Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # 8339 is not a confirmed fit by itself. Instead use the Curt Overbed, Folding Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Installation Kit part # C61332-52 this has the rails and custom side plates to allow you to attach the flip down ball to securely. It is very cost effective and will do a great job.

    We do not offer any custom gooseneck hitches for your F-350 Cab And Chassis, but we do have the Fold-Down Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Installation Kit, part # 8339. This hitch has a 25,000-lb gross towing capacity and includes a 2-5/16 inch ball. The ball folds down so you have full use of the truck bed when not towing. This kit would require custom brackets and hardware to mount on your flat bed. The hitch must be attached to the frame of the truck and cannot be mounted with just...

  • Replacement Fold-Down Gooseneck Hitch for 2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD
    The Reese Fold Down Gooseneck Hitch and its install kit, part # 8339-4434 are indeed a fit for your 2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD. 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. Since your existing frame rails haven't been tested with the Reese hitch, the weight capacity would be completely unknown if you tried to reuse them. Since I don't...

  • Recommended Rail Kit for Older Draw-Tite Gooseneck Hitch # 8339 On 1994 Dodge Ram 2500
    I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite regarding the # 8339 Gooseneck Hitch that you recently obtained. He did state that the older version of this model hitch featured the 6 square mounting holes that you are seeing on your system. The current model dropped these two holes and has just the 4 square holes at the corners of the plate, as you referenced. He stated that for this gooseneck hitch and your 1994 Dodge Ram Pickup, you will just need the Installation Rail Kit # 4439. This kit will...

  • How to Pull 5th Wheel Trailer With Gooseneck Trailer Hitch 8339
    The gooseneck you mentioned is the Fold-Down Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 8339 (which is actually made by Draw-Tite as opposed to Curt) and while it's certainly possible for you to tow a 5th wheel trailer, there are no rail adapters that will work with this hitch. The part you need instead is the Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # DM8550045. This will give you a very solid 5th wheel hitch with a great jaw system that simply attaches to your Draw-Tite gooseneck...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Fit Recommendation for 1990 Dodge Ram 3500
    For your 1990 Dodge Ram 3500 we only have one gooseneck hitch fit available. For that you'd want the B and W Gooseneck hitch part # BWGNRK1300 which is a confirmed fit. The Draw Tite you mentioned is not a fit so it would not fit.

  • Available Folding Gooseneck Hitch for a 1997 Ford F-350 Single Rear Wheel
    At this time, we do not carry a folding gooseneck for a 1997 Ford F-350, but we do have other types of goosenecks available. The Curt Quick Goose 2, part # C630-636, is a complete kit that includes the under bed rails and the gooseneck hitch. There is much less bed drilling involved with this kit than the folding style goosenecks. 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...

  • Freeing Stuck Gooseneck Ball
    It's really difficult to say without knowing the manufacturer and model of the hitch. Generally speaking, most of the time you can clear a stuck ball using spray lubricant, heat and shock. Sometimes all three. The brand/model of the hitch will dictate where you apply the 3 methods described above. If the hitch uses a pin to release it like the B&W # BWGNRK1059, the actuating handle will typically be located in the driver's side wheel well. Give the handle a pull and twist, and you...

    The Draw-Tite # 4456 gooseneck rail kit works with 2011-2019 Chevy Silverado/GMC Sierra 2500/3500 models only. For a 2000 Chevy C/K series (not the Silverado, 2000 was a split model year), you'd need the # 4440 rail kit which is compatible with the Draw-Tite # 8339 Fold-Down Gooseneck Hitch.

    There are gooseneck hitches that fit the 2003 Ford F-150 but the Draw-Tite hitch part # 8339 is not a fit. The Draw-Tite Gooseneck hitch is designed for newer F-150 trucks. I recommend Curt's Folding Gooseneck hitch part # C61652-637 for the 2003 Ford F-150 with a 6-1/2 foot or 8 foot bed. The Curt Under Bed Folding Gooseneck Hitch comes with the rails that are custom fit for the 2003 Ford F-150 so there is not any drilling required for installation.

  • Will Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Install Kit from 1996 Chevy 2500 Fit a 2000 Chevy 2500
    Actually it depends on one key factor. The issue is that 2000 was a split model year for Chevy trucks. There were both C/K series and Silverados. Where people get confused is when they have a C/K series with the Silverado trim because up until the 2000 model year Silverado was just a trim package. So if you have a C/K series with the Silverado trim then the installation kit, # 4440, for the 1996 C/K 2500 will also fit the 2000 C/K. But if you have an actual Silverado and not a C/K...

    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...
