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).

Video Transcript for B and W Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Custom - BWGNRK1316-5W Review

Today we're going to review part number BWGNRK1316-5W. This is the B&W Custom Underbed Installation Kit for the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2002 to 2008 Dodge RAM 1500 series trucks, the long and the short beds and two wheel drive and four wheel drive models. Now, not only does this installation kit provides you with a sturdy custom base for installing your B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch in the bed of your truck but also double as a turnover ball Gooseneck hitch. This part does include the side mounting plates, the rails, the Goosneck hitch head, the spring loaded safety chain loops and the Gooseneck hitch ball. Now, this kit will work with B&W Companion Fixed Fifth Wheel Hitch partnumber BWRVK3500 and it'll work with the B&W Companion Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch part number BWRVK3400.

Both of those we do sold separately on our website. Now, this will install under the truck bed and will provide complete truck bed access when you're not towing or when you turnover the Gooseneck ball for storage when you're not towing. Again, it will also give you complete truck bed access. Now, this kit is custom designed for your vehicle. The truck bed does not have to be removed when it's installed.

These mounting brackets here on the side will bolt to your existing holes in your truck's frame. Now, while some modification might be required, the main thing is you will need to be able to cut a four inch diameter hole in the bed of your truck to access this hitch opening and you'll need to drill four nice sixteens holes to put in these built in safety chain loops but there is no need to weld or drill into the frame of your truck. Now, once you have these brackets in the center section all installed you want to install this operating handle right here. Now, this handle is designed to be access from the rear driver's side wheel well. This will open and close the pin lock. This handle right underneath here will bolt to a heavy duty five eights inch diameter steel pin and that pin will secure the mounting post of the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel or the base of this Gooseneck hitch ball. Basically what you would do if you're going to tow a Gooseneck trailer you can take this, drop it into place.

When you twist the handle it would release that locking pin which would slide across unlock the ball into place, you're ready to tow a Gooseneck trailer. When you're done towing you just want to store it, again pull it out, twist it, the lock will open. Just turn it over, drop the ball in place, twist the handle, it locks it into place and you can see it'll be under your bed, again you'll still have the complete truck bed access. Now, if you're going to tow a fifth wheel trailer with the B&W Companion, what you can basically do is that B&W Companion has legs that would drop into your bed of your truck, has a center post in the middle which is shaped just like this, a square post with the holes in it. Now, we'll drop in to the opening and again twist it, that pin would lock that post into place and you'd have your fifth wheel hitch in your truck bed, you'll be able to tow a fifth wheel trailer. A few specs on this, has a gross towing weight capacity of 30,000 pounds, has a vertical load limit or pin weight capacity of 7500 pounds and it does come with this Gooseneck turnover ball which has a ball size diameter of two and five sixteenths.

That should do it for the review on part number BWGNRK1316-5W. This is the B&W Custom Underbed Installation Kit for the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches. .
