B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch

B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch

Not only does this kit provide you with a sturdy, custom base for installing your Companion fifth-wheel trailer hitch in the bed of your truck, but it also doubles as one of the most recognizable gooseneck hitches on the market. This fifth wheel installation kit actually is the Turnoverball gooseneck hitch from B&W.


Gooseneck Specs:

  • Gross towing weight: 30,000 lbs
  • Vertical load limit: 7,500 lbs
  • Ball size: 2-5/16"

B&W Companion Installed in Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch

With the B&W Turnoverball underbed gooseneck trailer hitch you get the best of both worlds. When you go to tow a gooseneck trailer, the Turnoverball creates a sturdy, dependable connection with your trailer. And when you're done towing, you can stow the ball upside down in the hitch to get full bed access and a clean appearance. When you're ready to tow your fifth wheel trailer, just install the Companion in the ball hole in place of the gooseneck ball and lock the post in place using the built-in handle. You can remove the fifth wheel when you're done towing, leaving your truck bed open once again.


Simple, Custom Installation

This kit is custom designed for your vehicle. The mounting brackets bolt to existing holes in your truck's frame. While some modification is required - you will need to cut a 4" diameter hole in your bed for the hitch ball and drill holes for the built-in safety chain loops - there is no need to weld onto or to drill into your frame.


Once you have the brackets and center section installed, set up the operating handle. This handle is designed to be accessed from the rear driver's-side wheel well. On the end of the handle is the heavy-duty steel pin that secures the mounting post of the Companion (or the base of the gooseneck hitch ball).

  • B and W Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Recommendation for a 1996 Chevrolet 3500 Long Bed
    I have a similar B and W Gooseneck hitch that will work on your 1996 Chevy Truck 3500 with a long bed, but the part # BWGNRK1313-5W is not confirmed to fit your vehicle so I cannot recommend it for you. You would want the B and W Gooseneck and Underbed Companion Hitch part # BWGNRK1000-5W. This comes with the gooseneck hitch and ball, for a compatible fifth wheel hitch you would want the B and W Hitch part # BWRVK3500-5W.

  • Fifth Wheel Rails That do not Require Drilling into the Frame on 1998 Chevy C/K Series Pickup Truck
    There would not be a way to use the Pro Series PS30855 fifth wheel hitch without the base rails # RP30035 that require you drill into the frame of your 1998 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup. If drilling into the frame of your truck is a deal breaker, there are two options available. One is the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500-5W and the Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1000-5W. This is a high-quality fifth-wheel with an underbed install that allows you to remove the fifth wheel and doubles...

  • 5th Wheel Base Rail Brackets for Older GMC/Chevy K2500
    There are not custom brackets that go back that far on your K-Series truck. The Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt # RP30035 will work well for your truck and are rated for more towing capacity than the hitch. I've attached the installation details and you will want to look at pages 6 or 8 to determine fit based on your frame. You will see in both cases you will bet a lot of bracket on the frame. Another option that will give you...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Base Rail Kit for 1999 Chevy K3500
    For your 1999 Chevy K3500 you will use the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt # RP30035. The model year of your truck is too old for the custom bracket kit you are seeking. This will absolutely work well for you. If you desperately want a custom fit, then the only option we have is the B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1000-5W that then will use either a Companion hitch # BWRVK3500-5W or an adapter like # 16310 for a traditional...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Compatibility Between 2015 Ford 2500 And 1999 Chevrolet C/K 2500
    Unfortunately the Underbed Puck mounted systems are not available for your 1999 Chevrolet C/K 2500. I recommend getting a set of standard 5th wheel rails, like the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt, # RP30035, and getting the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 18,000 lbs, # BWRVK3255, for a similiar hitch or if you only need the base, the Replacement Base for B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - 18,000 lbs, # BWRVB3255.
