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.

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.

It has worked just as it should. I’d recommend it to anyone. Our truck has the bed delete option, so installation was very easy and quick. It is well designed and very sturdy. I think it will very likely outlast the truck. If I had another truck that needed a gooseneck hitch, I’d choose this same option.

This hitch was more complex to install than older models, but fit the truck well. The only problem is that body material will have to be modified to get the release lever to operate. All in all a very heavy duty hitch. I have not found any hitch that is comparable, and I have probably logged nearly 500,000 trailer miles with 9 trucks over 40 year’s with loads up to 15, 000 pounds. This is my 2nd B&W gooseneck hitch.

2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty

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.

2017 F-250 6.2L: Been a year and haven't had any issues. Installation was simple with just me and my 13 yr old son for extra hands. I have towed a 25’+5’ flat bed loaded with a GV of about 11k with no issues. I don’t tow every day but everything still functions properly from the spring loaded chain loops to the locking lever.

2019 Ford F250 Super Duty - I highly recommend the B&W hitch. This is a great package for a Goose-Neck hitch installation. The fit was perfect for each piece. The video made the installation very clear. I am pretty mechanically inclined and have quite a few tools which made the install go smoother. Some long 1/2" extensions really help. The hitch lever that you put in is a bit tricky. I removed the wheel for better access. If etrailer made the hitch lever in two pieces it might help . Great product.

2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty

I installed this hitch on my 2020 F250. I have had several B&W hitches through the years and they are very good hitches. I am rating this hitch with one star because this is a turn overball but the instructions for this hitch at the end have a explicit warning that state storing the ball in the hitch can cause the ball to contact the rear end if you put a load on your truck. So the hitch is advertised as a turn over ball but you can't turn the ball over without risk of damaging your truck. If I would have known this I may have not spent my money or time installing this hitch. The warning is conveniently located on the last page of the instructions. My opinion this is false advertising and you cannot call your hitch a turnover ball if turning the ball over risks damaging the vehicle. Here is the verbiage from the installation instructions to highlight: WARNING: Inverting the ball while hauling heavy loads may cause the ball to strike the truck’s differential, drive line, or other components. Inspect the relationship between the ball and truck components to ensure the proper clearance. Failure to remove the ball when hauling heavy loads may result in property damage, injury or death. A cover to prevent debris from entering the socket while operating without the ball in place is available from B&W. Once installed it is obvious with the ball turned over the clearance between the bottom of the ball and the top of the differential is far less than the distance of the suspension to the bump stops. That prompted me to review the documentation post install. Otherwise - The install is tough if you are trying to do this with your truck on the ground. Getting a torque wrench on some of the bolts is, tough. I had to disconnect most of the rear tail pipe to make it happen. Also the clearance between the tailpipe and hitch is very very close, less than a finger tip gap. Other than that it is pretty straight forward and the parts go in to place pretty easily to loose install everything. IMO its worth every penny to let someone install it for you unless you have a truck lift and a short torque wrench at your disposal.

    The Firestone # F2597 Ride-Rite system is what I'd recommend. The system is compatible with an in-bed gooseneck or 5th wheel hitch, and Firestone uses a superior roll crimp to join the bag to the upper and lower plates rather than steel bands like AirLift does. This makes for a stronger joint between the two that's much much less likely to fail over time. If your truck is a short bed Diesel, there will be an exhaust sensor on the passenger side frame rail that will be in the way, so...

    Firestone does not have a kit that will work with a B&W gooseneck trailer hitch in a 2018 Ford F-250. The upper brackets mount to the outside of the frame rails and would interfere with the gooseneck frame brackets. You could switch to Air Lift system # AL57399 for a 4x4 or # AL57391 for 2-wheel drive models because they mount to the bottoms of the frame rails.

Most tape measures do not start at zero. There...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for 2017 Ford F-250
    If your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty has the factory rail kit, there will be 4 pucks in a rectangular pattern with a single puck in the center. I have included an image of a 2015 Ford F-350 truck bed that has the factory rail kit, which would look the same on yours if you do in fact have the kit.
