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.


Operation Handle

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.

Was a little difficult installing till I realized I was doing it wrong, short phone call got me on the right track. It has been a life saver with the reversing ball, I pulled a 40 foot flatbed trailer loaded, worked great. 721143

Great sturdy product. My used 2012 F-250 came with one and now have one on my 2020 F-250, I think it's a better product than the Ford factor hitch. The installation video is VERY helpful. Torquing the bolts requires a lot strength and flexibility due to the awkward positions you have to get in but it can be done with patience and prayer. Just plan on dropping the exhaust as shown in the video. As is consistently the case e-Trailer's customer service is second to none. We've already used it several times to pull at 16' gooseneck dump trailer and it works very well. 772642

Installed myself, f350 long box, tough to get to nuts/bolts over fuel tank. Remove the spare tire is highly recommended! Like the new pin release lever, beefier than the old rod style.

I installed MOST of this hitch by myself with the truck on the ground. Watch the installation video several times before you start the install. Also I recommend placing the release handle in place as the FIRST thing you do. Fighting to get it into place with all of the other hardware in place is difficult (not impossible). Fit and finish was excellent. I like the changes to the front and rear braces. I did another one of these hitches in a 2005 F-350 and this one was much simpler to install. 808762

Even with all that’s going on in the world with covid 19 I have nothing but good things to say. I ordered and B&W turnover ball for my f150 then decided to get a new f350 and needed to exchange the parts. It was absolutely not a problem at all. The speed in witch the products were shipped and then when I had to return a part and get a different one it was a pleasant and easy process. I got a phone call to verify everything that needed to be done instead of fighting with emails or recordings it was nice to talk to a person. I would highly recommend doing business with etrailer and I will be doing business with them in the future 785405

Installed on my 2019 F250 4x4. Very heavy and well made product. Design and engineered well for installation. As a DIY person I've decided to save $300 and installed this myself and the fact it was during the Corona quarantine. Somewhere I saw 2 hours labor for novice. Let me tell you that is completely inaccurate for your typical DIY person. etrailer has a great install video for a 2109 F250, but don't use that alone. Minor differences in their project truck makes major headaches for the novice installer. Follow the video, but also follow printed instructions. Watching video indicated it was a good idea to loosen exhaust. It made it look easy to do that. Video showed removing 4 bolts which was easy, but that does not loosen exhaust enough to matter. You have to remove another bracket further towards the front of the truck which is MUCH more difficult, if you can even figure out how. I spent an hour wasting time with exhaust and gave up on that part. Lot of brake lines and emissions type stuff under there to deal with also. In the end, exhaust isn't worth loosening. I did the install by myself in about 6 hours. I'm 55 yoa and 6' tall so going back and forth under the truck a 100 times wasn't much fun. A lift would have cut that install time in half. Better figure out how you are going to lift the actual receiver into place and hold it there while you get the bolts in. I used a jack with a board along with a strap thru the top tied off. Again, without a lift this is a tough job but doable. In the end happy with the install. 773080

As ordered, right product for truck, and fast delivery. Like that I got a personal email to confirm shipping details. Only thing I could say was it was a challenge to install solo. But I didn’t use a lift, remove any wheels or drop exhaust. Also got a little pant loss during shipping but that might have been mostly on the carrier. Really like all the help you can glean come the question/answer section on etrailer site. 746575

This is so there is no chance of the liner material getting into the gooseneck components. But you could go ahead and drill the holes for the hitch prior to having the liner sprayed in. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you.
