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).

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.

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.

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.

  • 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.

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch Option for 2019 Ram 2500 Mega Cab With 6-1/2 Foot Short Bed
    With clearance being the biggest issue for you, there is one option I highly recommend for a 5th wheel hitch that fits your 2019 Ram 2500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed, the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider # DM8550034. The Hijacker gives you more clearance than any other sliding hitch because of its 14 inches of front-to-back travel; other hitches have between 10 inches and 12 inches of travel. That will give you the most possible clearance for your 2019 Ram, and...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ram 3500 with Short Bed to Tow Grand Design Solitude 310GK
    I'll start by saying that because you have a short bed truck, you will need a sliding hitch in order to make sure that you can safely turn while towing your 5th wheel trailer and not create contact between the nose of your trailer and the cab of your truck. You can also accomplish this by going with a Sidewinder style pin box like the Reese # RP61421, but I typically only like to recommend those on truck beds shorter than 6-ft or 5th wheel trailers with extremely protruding noses.

    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.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Ram 2500 Short Bed
    Due to the fact that the truck has the shorter bed, you'll want to go with a sliding fifth wheel hitch to provide enough clearance between the truck cab and the front of your fifth wheel. There are three types of options available. You could go with a hitch that mounts to permanently mounted rails in your truck bed. This is usually the least expensive option, but you'll be left with the rails in the truck bed, so if you use your truck bed to carry cargo that will need to be scooped or...

    The best fifth wheel hitch we offer for your 2019 Ram 2500 for if you have the factory rail kit is the part # BWRVK3670.
