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 3-1/2" 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).

Installed in my 2022 Ram 3500 dually. Install was easy due to the step by step instructions. It was nice that it was made here in USA. I didn’t have to undo the exhaust hangers. The hardest part was torquing the under bed bolts. A crows foot is the way to go. This hitch system seems great. I haven’t had it long, but this thing is rugged. My friend who has a fifth wheel with rails in his bed is thinking of getting one now. It is clean and the bed is still very usable.

All is great except the release handle mechanism. Keeps getting stuck when attempting to lock the pin into the shaft opening. All the adjustments possible equals no help. Other than that installation was smooth even though it is almost impossible to get a torque wrench on the side bolts.




by:

My truck didn’t come with a puck system. This works great for a gooseneck or my 5th wheel hitch. Installed by myself, that was fun! Done it in my driveway. Having a lift and extra hands would be ideal.

Easy order process and delivered in a timely matter.

The B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch is an awesome product. I installed on my 2020 Ram 2500 Cummins Turbo Diesel. From the time of delivery, I could see the pride etrailer.com put into shipping. The quality and fabrication of the product are superb. The directions and videos made this a very easy install; so much so I made it a father-daughter project. All bolt holes lined up perfectly without the need for corrective modifications. The issue I ran into was not having crowfeet wrenches to get into the tight spots, but once purchased, I had no further issues. Great product from an industry leader and a please doing business with etrailer.com.

  • Underbed Rail Kit Solution for 2020 Ram 3500 to Carry Reese 20k Fifth Wheel Hitch
    I have an underbed fifth wheel hitch solution for your 2020 Ram 3500 long bed that will allow you to use your Reese 20k fifth wheel hitch. For the underbed rail kit you'd first want the B and W rail kit # BWGNRK1320-5W and then you'd use the Curt X5 adapter part # 16310 to convert that to a rail kit that your Reese hitch will fit. The Reese rail kit you referenced would not fit your truck.

  • Can B&W Companion Slider Hitch Fit 2019 Ram 2500 Short Bed without OEM Rail Kit
    Yes, you can fit the B and W Companion slider hitch part # BWRVK3400-5W in the bed of your 2019 Ram 2500 that does not have the OEM rail kit. All you need is the Turnoverball rail kit # BWGNRK1320-5W and you'd be set! This rail kit also doubles as a gooseneck hitch too which is nice. I attached an install video for the rail kit and a review video for the hitch for you to check out as well.

  • What Fifth Wheel do you Recommend for my 2020 Ram 3500 with 6.5' bed?
    By far the way to go is the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider part # BWRVK3400-5W that you checked out. This offers a 20,000 lbs. capacity so it will handle your trailer weight with no issues. The Companion is the easiest to use slider out there with the best fit and finish available. It uses a dual jaw design and completely wraps around the king pin which eliminates most of the chucking often experienced during hauling a fifth wheel. As an added bonus this can be completely...

  • Placement of B&W Companion and Turnover Ball Hitch in Bed of 2019 Ram 3500
    Because your Ram has the built-in gooseneck crossmember under the bed, the # BWGNRK1320-5W Turnover Ball that will act at the mount for the # BWRVK3500-5W companion 5th wheel hitch will mount directly centered over the rear axle. The pivot arms for the Companion hitch will place the fifth wheel king pin one inch forward of the axle when installed in one of the three orientations shown in the provided diagram.

    There is no difference between the Turnoverball rail kits part # BWGNRK1320 and # BWGNRK1320-5W. The part number is only different so we can organize it in two places on our site. In a gooseneck fitguide and in the fifth wheel fit guide since it works for both. Then to convert to a fifth wheel hitch you'd just need the # BWRVK3500 for a fixed hitch if you have a long bed truck or part # BWRVK3400 for if you have a short bed truck and need a slider.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Mounted on a Gooseneck Ball
    Since you have a gooseneck ball welded into the flatbed, then you need a fifth wheel hitch that holds on by the gooseneck ball. The Demco # DM8550045 Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Hitch Adapter seems like the best solution. It has a gross towing rating of 21,000 pounds, and rated 4,000 pounds of vertical load. You would probably need to determine the towing capacity of the installed gooseneck ball. This will have a quick and easy installation.

  • What is Best Slider Hitch to Fit 2019 Ram 2500 Short Bed
    The best fifth wheel hitch we offer for your 2019 Ram 2500 for if you have the factory rail kit is the part # BWRVK3670. The B and W hitches are widely considered to be the best around due to how well they are made (right here in the USA), how easy they are to use, and how tightly they hold the king pin of the trailer which translates into a smoother ride quality. Now if you didn't have the factory rail kit we can still get you a Companion hitch setup easily. The hitch you'd need is the...

  • Installing A 5th Wheel Hitch Kit On A 2020 Ram 2500 With A Bedrug
    In order to install any 5th wheel hitch kit in the bed of your 2020 Ram 2500 the bed rug would have to be temperately removed. All hardware and brackets have to mount to the bed itself. Once the kit is installed the mat can be reinstalled and flaps can be cut in the mounting locations of the hitch. To minimize the amount of cuts on your mat and having a 6-1/2ft bed, I recommend the Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches Item # BWGNRK1320-5W and the...

    The new Rhino Box from Lippert currently has no replacements so you won't be able to swap out this pin box with a Sidewinder to add more turning clearance.

We do offer a below bed hitch, the Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWGNRK1320-5W which would give you a gooseneck option as well as be compatible with a Companion 5th wheel hitch like the # BWRVK3400-5W.

  • Can The Lippert Rhino Box Be Swapped Out With The Reese Sidewinder?
    I spoke with Lippert and they informed that you have the new Lippert Rhino Box pin box on your Alliance Paradigm 295MK. Unfortunately, the Rhino Box has no available replacements so you actually won't be able to swap this out with the Sidewinder like you planned, however I have another workaround.
