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).

Made in America B&W products are standard in the hitch industry and etrailer places the bow on them. My Underbed Gooseneck Hitch and the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch I also purchased was ordered, processed and in my hands within a week. Awesome! Installation was made quite easy by simply referencing the etrailer INSTALLATION videos I downloaded to my Iphone prior to installation. And as usual, the etrailer folks were great! If I had a suggestion it would just be for all the DIYers out there: Download the pertaining install video(s) to your Iphone for reference as you go. A picture (video in this case) is truly worth a thousand installation instruction words...

  • Any Difference Between B&W BWGNRK1394 and BWGNRK1394-5W Installation Kits
    There is no difference between the B&W Underbed Trailer Hitch, # BWGNRK1394 and # BWGNRK1394-5W. They are listed separately because we want to identify them under both gooseneck and fifth wheel searches; but both are able to be used as a gooseneck hitch or with the Companion fifth wheel hitches. Please note the video links attached below.

  • Custom Fit Fifth Wheel Rail Kit and Hitch Recommendation for 1999 Dodge Ram 2500
    The only fifth wheel option we have that would allow you to use a custom-fit fifth wheel hitch rail kit in the bed of your 1999 Dodge Ram is the B and W rail kit part # BWGNRK1394-5W that also doubles as a gooseneck hitch. Then for a slider hitch you would need the Companion part # BWRVK3400-5W. This is the nicest hitch setup around that I know will work well for you.

    For a fifth wheel rail kit that doesn't require any drilling into the frame of your 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 long bed you'd want the B and W kit part # BWGNRK1394-5W which would then allow you to use the Companion hitch part # BWRVK3500-5W which many refer to as the best hitch around. The rail kit also doubles as a gooseneck hitch if ever needed as well.

  • Using a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Gooseneck Trailer Hitch in a 1999 Dodge Ram Short Bed
    There is a way to have both a gooseneck hitch and 5th wheel hitch in the same truck but the combination of the Draw-Tite hitch and Husky 5th wheel installation kit will not work. What I recommend is a B&W set up for your 1999 Dodge Ram short bed. For the gooseneck hitch use # BWGNRK1394-5W. This is the hitch and the installation kit together. Then for a 5th wheel hitch that fits in the gooseneck ball hole use the Companion slider # BWRVK3400-5W. I have included links to videos on both...

  • Best Underbed Fifth Wheel Towing Setup Recommendation for a 1995 Dodge Ram 2500
    For an underbed fifth wheel setup confirmed to fit your 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 with an 8 foot bed you would want the B and W Companion hitch setup that consists of part numbers # BWRVK3500-5W for the fifth wheel hitch and then part # BWGNRK1394-5W for the underbed kit. This is the only underbed setup available for your truck, but the great news is that the Companion hitch is often referred to as the best fifth wheel hitch around. You will really like this hitch and it costs less than the...

  • Will the Reese Rail Kit # 30074 Fit a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500
    We do have a 5th Wheel kit that cab be used on your 2002 Dodge Ram 2500, but unfortunately the Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30074 will not be a fit. I spoke to my contact with Reese and he confirmed that the # RP30074 will not work in your truck. There is actually not a Reese Elite under-bed rail that will work. Unfortunately, because of this there isn't a way to use your existing Reese Elite Hitch on your Ram 2500. Your only option is a brand new setup. I recommend...

  • Fifth Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter For 2002 Dodge Ram 2500
    The best option available to you at this time is our adapter # CAB-C5GX1216. Also, from my research, you need to obtain a specific plate when using an adapter with your 7027 pin box.. I advise that while this part will meet your needs, you could have even more clearance while turning if you removed your gooseneck hitch in your truck bed and replaced it with a sliding fifth wheel hitch, such as the B&W Companion # BWRVK3400-5W and the underbed custom installation kit for your truck # BWGNRK1394-5W...

  • Availability of No Custom Fit Fifth Wheel Rail Kit for 1999 Dodge Ram 1500
    For a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 short bed the only custom rail kit we offer for a fifth wheel hitch is the B and W rail kit part # BWGNRK1394-5W which would allow you to use the Companion Slider part # BWRVK3400-5W. For standard rail kits you'd have to go with a universal style rail kit like part # RP30035.

  • 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter for a 1996 Dodge Ram Pickup with Trailair 5th Wheel Pin Box
    The only way to haul a 5th wheel trailer with the gooseneck hitch on your 1996 Dodge Ram would be to install a Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter. None of our 5th wheel to gooseneck adapters like the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter part # CAB-C5G are compatible with pin boxes that have airbags like your Trailair Air Ride 5th Wheel Pin Box. In order to see if we have the correct Reese Goose Box for you I would need to know the model number...

  • Availability of Underbed System or Replacement Legs for a Valley 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2001 Dodge Ram
    Since Valley went out of business there are no underbed systems of replacement legs available for you to convert it to fit in-bed base rails. For your 2001 Dodge Ram with a 6 foot bed it is recommended to use a sliding 5th wheel hitch as that will give you the clearance that you need to avoid hitting the cab on your truck when making tight turns. If you are wanting to go with a hitch that is under the bed of your truck then I recommend the B&W Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1394-5W....
