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.


Operating Handle

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).

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch for Aftermarket Underbed Rail System on 2017 Ford F-250 Long Bed
    Knowing what rail system you have on your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty is needed in order to get your truck a fifth wheel hitch. The reason is, aftermarket underbed rail systems are only fits for specific hitches and are not universal-type fits like above-bed rails, so what I can do is let you know the underbed rail systems that fit your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty long bed and you can compare them to see if this is one that you have.

  • Underbed Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-350 Long Bed
    We do have one underbed fifth wheel rail solution for your 2017 Ford F-350 that I think you would like but we do not carry the Ford rail kit. Instead you would want the B and W kit part # BWGNRK1116-5W which is a confirmed fit for your truck. With it you would be able to install the very highly reviewed Companion Hitch part # BWRVK3500. What's also nice is that this rail kit also doubles as a gooseneck hitch.

    For your 2017 Ford F-250 short bed you would need to start with the B and W Turnoverball hitch part # BWGNRK1116-5W. Since you have a short bed truck you'll need a slider fifth wheel hitch to allow you turning clearance, Companion # BWRVK3400. The Reese Goose boxes are great but around sharp corners you'd have interference between the cab of the truck and the nose of the trailer.
