With the B&W Turnoverball underbed gooseneck trailer hitch you get the best of both worlds. When you go to tow, the Turnoverball creates a sturdy, dependable connection with your gooseneck 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.


Easy-to-Remove, Simple-to-Store Hitch Ball

The durable steel hitch ball included with the Turnoverball system secures in the hitch with a sturdy, 5/8" thick steel pin that is incorporated into the end of the operating handle. To lock the ball in place, drop it into the hitch hole in the bed of your truck. Then rotate the handle in your driver's-side wheel well counterclockwise until the latch engages. When the latch is engaged, the spring-loaded pin on the end of the handle will be inserted all the way through the base of the hitch ball, forming a strong, solid connection and ensuring absolute security when you're towing.


B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch Operation

When you're done towing, remove the hitch ball by simply pulling the handle out as far as it will go and then rotating it clockwise until it unlatches. Remove the ball, flip it upside down, and drop it back into the ball hole of the hitch. Then reengage the latch to secure the stowed ball in place.


Unlike typical gooseneck balls - which have round bases - the Turnoverball hitch ball is designed with a square base. This makes latching the ball in the hitch easier because the base won't rotate inside of the hitch like a round base might, so lining the pin up is a snap. The base of the ball also fits tightly within the ball hole during storage. Because only the corners of the base contact the sides of the socket, any dirt or grime that gets into the hitch will fall through the socket, thus helping to prevent any buildup that could cause the ball to seize up in the hitch.


Simple, Custom Installation

This hitch is custom designed for your vehicle. The included 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 hitch brackets and body 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 hitch ball.


B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch Accessories

B&W makes it easy to tow just about anything. With the many adapters and accessories available, the Turnoverball can be made to work with almost any gooseneck trailer. Hitch balls are available that have a built-in rise, an offset, and even a different connection type. Add on the Companion fifth-wheel hitch - which attaches directly to the Turnoverball with no other parts required - and you can tow your fifth-wheel trailer. Even a truck bed utility rack is available so that you can easily haul ladders and lumber with the load placed on the hitch (and therefore your truck's frame) instead of your bed rails.

Between the videos and the instructions it was very easy to follow. If you’re like me and don’t want to cut your fender liners I simply removed the front bed bolts and jacked one side up to slide in the mounting rails. The only fender I had to cut was the drivers side to allow for the latch pin lever. I really like just how “flush” the hitch really is once you turn over the ball. Overall very impressed with the hitch so far and have already recommended the hitch to other family members and friends.

I’ve had this hitch for about a year and use it daily around the farm from moving cattle to hauling hay to moving equipment around and just like the first day she works like a charm. Very good investment and still highly recommend for anyone looking for a good reliable hitch!

I ordered this hitch on a Tuesday and received it on a Friday! With free, standard shipping. Everything was packaged really well, in two boxes so it was very easy to handle. All parts were accounted for. And the kit came with very detailed instructions. Can't wait to get it installed.

I've used the B&W turnover ball system on several other trucks and always been very happy with the product. This one was ordered for my 2013 Silverado 3500. etrailer.com was very helpful, sending me several update emails relating to the availability of a wiring harness I ordered with the hitch. The hitch arrived a couple days after ordering, in two boxes. One box contained the hitch center section and ball and was in good condition. The second box contained cross members, side plates and all of the hardware. The second box was badly damaged and looked like someone tried to tape it back together. When I opened the box, all of the large pieces were loose and rolling around in the box. There was one piece of paper padding inside, but nothing else protecting the parts. The bag of hardware was torn open and there were nuts and bolts loose in the box and stuck to the tape holding the box together. The side plates and cross members had been beating together and were a little scratched up, but nothing too serious. There were no instructions in the box. Not sure if they were not included or they fell out of the box when it was damaged. I found and printed instructions on the B&W website. I did an inventory of the hardware and found I was missing a couple bolts and washers. I picked up replacements at the local hardware store. Not a big deal, but mildly frustrating anyway. The B&W installation instructions were pretty good. It took about 3 hours for my son and I to get the hitch installed. Everything went smoothly and all the parts fit well. I would definitely buy the hitch again and overall I was happy with etrailer.com.

I purchased my hitch and received it within 3 days. Fast and easy delivery service. I just wish the UPS guy would've at least placed it inside my gate. etrailer has great staff, friendly yet profesional. All of my questions we're answered promptly. The hitch looks great on my truck. I installed it myself in roughly 2 hours. The nice B&W grey color definitely pop's from the black frame. I also have the 5th wheel companion and it looks beefy! Can't wait to tow my toy hauler this weekend.

Best gooseneck hitch period. I've had and installed several over the years, for myself and others. Best working mechanism for ball release. Easy installation. Did mine by myself, using a jack stand and a ratchet strap to hold the hitch head.

Great hitch. Fast delivery. On a scale of 1-5 for difficult install it is a 4. Cousin and I took about 41/2 hours. We jacked up rear of truck put jack stands under. I think hardest part was torque wrench. Not much room under truck. Would highly recommend this hitch to anyone who needs one.

I needed a gooseneck hitch to haul cattle to market in my new 26ft. stock trailer. I installed the Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch in my 2012 Silverado 2500HD in a little over 3hrs by myself laying flat on the ground. If I'd had a lift, it would have been much easier. That installation instructions were dead on! Great looking hitch and adds value to my truck.

Product is very well made and has a nice clean installed look. Only thing I did different from the directions was instead of cutting a notch in the bed to install the X-members, I unbolted one side of my bed and raised it up and blocked it up. Overall good product and straight forward to install. Excited to see how it holds up.

Hitch is exactly as advertised. Drilled hole for ball receiver exactly where the instructions said and it was almost spot needed 1/8" for perfect fit. Otherwise installation went smoothly. Took me a little over two hours. Everything fit well. Took me awhile to master the bolt holders they sent with the kit. Installation looked good when finished. Picture isn't that good but will give you idea of what finished install will looks like. I am going to have the bed sprayed with Line-X and that should fix any rough edges.

Installed the B&W gooseneck turnover ball hitch in my 2015 Chevy 2500HD double cab. I installed it myself & it went smoothly. I did not have a lift which made the task even more interesting. The B&W hitch has performed well and I would buy again. I use the B&W in combination with a BlueOx SuperRide 5th wheel hitch. The combination has been excellent. Towing has been smooth with no bucking on noise from the hitch.

I ordered a bwgnrk1012 turnover ball under bed gooseneck hitch. Which arrived a day before they said it would. I was pressed for time for a Florida trip I needed to install it asap. It was easy. I did it myself Two people would be better, I used a jig saw for the 4" hole, a come along with two 2x4s and a bolt to lift the ball receiver member through the 4" hole and hold it in place . A couple of things to note , my notch on the passenger side for the two rails ended up being 3" instead of 2". And I would chase the threaded holes inThe 1"x2" bar. It was a pain to do it under the truck other than that everything went great It's a great product , with good instructions.

Laura The product I had purchased (turnoverball underbed hitch) works great. The fit is perfect. The only issues I have are as follows 1. E-Trailer should offer the cover that goes over the ball once it is stored. With all the weather we have been having and debri that usually ends up left in the bed of my truck. 2. It's a real pain trying to retrieve the ball and turn it over. Performance wise. I have no issues. Great product well engineered.

This is an excellent product! Let's start from the beginning. The ordering was easy and hassle-free. They shipped my order the next day and it arrived as promised. The only issue I had was when I opened the box. It comes in two separate boxes due to weight. The package that contains all the hardware had a slight tear. After inspection I realized one lock washer had fallen out and it wasn't in the box. No worries there, I simply picked up another at the hardware store. Installation was as difficult as expected. You're working under a truck with about 130lbs of steel... it's not going to be real easy but it's not super difficult either (use your head and read the instructions). The instructions are easy to read and understand. I recommend you lay everything out on the ground exactly as it is assembled. That way you can get a clear picture as to how everything will go together when you are under the vehicle trying to hold a 50lb piece of steel above your head. Bottom line though... this system was designed and put together excellently. If you follow the instructions it will install perfectly with no gaps or unsightly holes. This is my first in-bed trailer hitch system. I wasn't sure if I should go with just a goose neck or fifth wheel. This system allows for both. My only regret is that I didn't take pictures as I went along. It truly does go in as easily as they say.

Absolutely love it, I already had the 20k companion to go with the gooseneck, super easy install, love having the option of removing my companion and use my truck bed for it’s intended purposes and I will always recommend this setup for fifth wheel and gooseneck trailers.

I got this product for a 2013 chevy 2500hd short bed. I converted my 5th wheel 37ft weekend warrior to gooseneck and this product worked to perfection! Installation was very easy, the instructions that come with this are clear and easy to follow. Took about 2 hours from start to finish with 2 people. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a high quality gooseneck hitch!! Good job B&W! and you cant beat the prices from etrailer with their fast free shipping! I will only use etrailer for any of my hauling or trailer needs!!



- BWGNRK1012
by:

This is so much better than having the rails permanently in my truck. The installation went well. Having to cut the heat shield is one of those moments on a brand new truck but it needs to be done. I recommend getting a plug for the turnover ball. Winter salt will not be kind to the ball in the turned down position.

The hitch will more or less act as a heat shield as well. I attached a link to an install video for this hitch in a 2015 Chevy Silverado just like yours for you to check out as well.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Fit for 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    The gooseneck trailer hitch I recommend for you is the B and W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1012. The Turnoverball has a gross towing weight of 30,000 pounds, with a vertical load limit of 7,500 pounds. No drilling into the frame is required with the custom installation kit. In speaking with my co-worker about this hitch, he feels that it has a stronger construction than similar hitches, as he has noted that the steel used for the...

  • Firestone Air Bag Kit and Under-Bed Gooseneck Hitch on 2013 GMC Sierra 2500
    We offer one rear-axle air bag kit from Firestone that will fit the 2013 GMC Sierra 2500, part # F2528. This kit fits both 2WD and 4WD models and installs on your truck's frame in the location of the original factory bump stops. I reviewed the installation instructions for this suspension kit and it appears that its bracketry will indeed conflict with mounting hardware for some goose neck hitches, including the B&W # BWGNRK1012 which would have been my top recommendation. Since aftermarket...

  • Comparing B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitches BWGNRK1012 and BWGNRK1012-5W
    There is no difference. They are the same part. The only reason we show both of them is because # BWGNRK1012-5W shows up when you go through the fit guide for a specific year, make, and model truck. The shipping weight will be fixed to reflect the correct amount which is actually 113.30 pounds.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement For 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 W/ Gooseneck Hitch
    I have a different suspension enchancement style option but unfortunately there is not an air spring kit for your 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 that will work with an in-bed hitch. This is due to the fact that on your vehicle the Air Springs and Gooseneck Hitch install in the same location and wont allow for both systems to be installed. As long as you do not have an upper over load spring on your truck I recommend using the Roadmaster Active Suspension Custom Leaf Spring Enhancement Kit...

  • B and W Turnover Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2016 GMC Sierra 3500
    For a B and W Turnover Gooseneck hitch confirmed to fit your 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 you would want the part # BWGNRK1016. The part # BWGNRK1012 that you referenced is for the previous years of the Sierra so it would not fit your truck. If you ever needed to tow a fifth wheel trailer you could just go with the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3500 as this will fit right into the hitch.

    The B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNRK1012 with B&W Companion Slider Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter part # BWRVK3400 is an excellent option for a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, one of the best combos on the market actually. In regards to the pin box/king pin compatibility, there are very few that won't work with this so that should not really be a concern. The only type that won't are those with a rotating turret but these are very rare and can...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch Confirmed To Fit 2017 GMC Sierra 2500
    The B&W Turnoverball # BWGNRK1012 is not a fit for a 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 with 6-1/2 foot bed. The frame is slightly different and requires the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs # BWGNRK1016. This hitch is the most versatile gooseneck hitch and has the ability to use the B&W Companion Slider Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # BWRVK3400 if you ever decide to use a 5th Wheel Hitch.
