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.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


This was my first order I placed with et etrailer. If one work could say it I guess it would perfect! I ordered on a Tuesday arrived on Thursday. I Placed the order got conformation and a name and contact to call if I had any issues, once it arrived I got another email letting me know if had been delivered. The installation video was perfect made it’s easy to install just followed the steps. When I need any trailer related items I will use them. As far as the B&W hitch i put it in a 2017 Ram 2500 with Ram boxes. The fit and quality of the hitch and design is what I have come to expect from B&W. I got this hitch to pull a gooseneck horse trailer. If your wondering if it will work with Ram Boxes it will.

Great product still love it works great with my Ram Boxes. No issues ever

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


The high quality is apparent with this hitch. It is made well and thoroughly thought out for easiest possible install. The value is very high!

However the instructions were incorrect for the distance to drill the hole in the bed. It said 45 1/2” from end of bed. But It should have been 45 7/8” - 46”. Caused a slight issue for our install. I had to ream out the hole on the cab side to get it to fit. Which left a large 1/4” gap on the side closest to the rear of the bed. Most of these new truck have a circle area cast in them where the hidden hitch hole should go. I recommend centering your drill bit in that and drilling instead of using the measurements in the instructions. I considered doing that, but depended on the instructions instead. Bad choice! Not pleased with that! Further, the instructions don’t give torque specs.


Comments
I have contacted one of our installers and have confirmed that when it comes to the measurements, they recommend following the measurements that are on the installation instructions. The factory dimple is not always centered, so its better to measure according to the instruction manual. As for the torquing specifications, on page 4 of the instructions it states that once the hitch is tight, torque 0.625 inch hardware to 150 ft. lbs. and all 0.5 inch hardware to 110 ft. lbs.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


Received in terrible condition. One box was completely open at all borders and finish on hitch was chipped in multiple places. Product was shown as in stock when order was placed but wasn't shipped until the day AFTER it was supposed to be delivered. Two calls to etrailer told me it would be shipped prior to that date but obviously just trying to smooth over the situation. Installation was completed per instructions and watching etrailer [online] videos without issue. Only difficulty is torquing the bolts to final specs in tight spaces.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


Installation was straight forward and it's well built. Works smoothly. etrailer was awesome as usual with shipping and service.
However.... ;) on the BWGNRK1400 for '73-'87 GM trucks, the predrilled holes in the hitch for the safety chain u-bolts are 6-1/4" each way from center of the ball. This places the matching holes you have to drill in the truck bed on the sloped edge of the ribs, not in the center of the valley as intended. The instructions read as if the holes are not pre-drilled but they are, so I contacted B&W and asked if I can drill new holes at 8-3/4" each way of the ball so that they center in the next valley and they said no, that will void the warranty. So I had to do some bodywork, cut, weld and grind to scallop the ribs around the anchors to they won't always be sticking up (defeating the flat floor intent of this hitch design). I saw guy on [online] noted this was an issue on his squarebody bed as well.
B&W needs to look at this dimension for future installations to help out the next guy.

1997 ford f250
Works great, except the
turnover part, the ball hits the sway bar. Install was not as easy as stated but that's probably because the kit was more of a universal fit for my truck and I had to do a lot of drilling.

I still have no complaints about the work ethics of this setup.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


Overall this Installation went as I anticipated, 4-5 hours; it's not for an unprepared amateur. I strongly recommend watching the Installation Video, but more importantly, disconnecting the wiring harness (from both sides, there's 3 connectors) that cross over the rear cross member above the Differential. Disconnecting the rear exhaust was a MUST DO for us (my son helped me) as is a second person. Patience was our friend during this entire Installation for both of us. The brake line that crosses over to the passenger side was of concern to me, and got in the way as well; in the end it is below this entire installation. However there is a Mount Block on the driverside that creates a problemwith getting one bolt into place; a "Fishing Spring" (spring wire that wraps around the threads with long tail to fish/thread/pull thru the hole) would have helped to get this into place. (SEE PICTURE) Once in place the head is able to be held with a narrow spanked wrench while tightening. The rear center bolt is a HUGE challenge to reach once everything is in place and you're torquing things to spec.I had to purchase a "3/4" Crowsfoot" to get this and some of the others because of things blocking access with a socket (not talked about in the video or Installation Video). Once everything is in place and Reconnecting electrical plugs we found that there was enough gap/spacebehind the Kit Rear Cross Bar, over the vehicle rear cross member, to run the driver side electrical. Pay attention to have the "male" plug facing inboard to give you enough slack to reach the passenger side plug. A couple of zip-ties were needed to keep this inplace. See picture for how I routed this and the vent tube to avoid the heatshield.

I've got a 26 foot Keystone Cougar 5th wheel RV Trailer that I be using this, along with an Andersen 3217 hitch. With this B&W Hitch I don't have the 5th wheel Rails across the bed full-time anymore of my 2022 Ram 1500DT 4x4.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


Worked out … Perfect upgrade to the factory system. I hated having to remove , and place the covers in the bed. Now that the safety chains are closer to the center I can load boards and stuff that I don’t want in the trailer in the bed without having to rearrange everything. Only thing is the safety chain hoops are little thicker than the bed ribs and stick up. So it’s not totally flat..




by:

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


This definitely is not a plug and play mechanism.
There is interference with the lever to unlock the ball and it hitting one of the bolts. I had to shave the bolt down to make it even slide by, in addition to this I had to cut about 1/4” off the mechanism lever for it to open all the way and not hit the bracket on the truck.

So in summary I had to make two cuts into the product to make it even function properly.
Poor quality control.

This is a good kit. It took me about 3 hours to install, but I'm not the fastest.
You'll need a floor jack, rope, 4" hole saw, 1/2" and smaller drill bits, drill, torque wrench, sockets, wrenches, and a impact driver would help make the job faster. Use the floor jack in the truck bed with a rope to lift the heavy plate into place. See pictures.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


The installation videos are pretty accurate all around. Admittedly, this took me a little longer than the projected time frame, which I anticipated. Removing the driver side wheel well insert also made torquing the bolts there easier. Installation would likely be easier with a buddy, and reaching the torque specifications on several bolts was difficult with a standard 1/2 inch drive torque wrench, but it was all possible and fit 100% perfectly. Excellent conversion for my 3500 8foot bed. Next step is to get the matching fifth wheel hitch and purchase our dream RV.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


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.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


I put B&W turnoverball on a 2016 Ram 2500 crew cab short bed diesel,it has the factory prep puck. The change over was pretty simple. I used the same studs and nuts that came with puck goose ball. Tbe only hard part was trying to pry the 4" exhaust pipe down to slide the B&W plate into position. It took me about 2 hours to install by myself. I am going to use a 4" offset ball so I can use a reese goosebox hitch for my 5th wheel.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


Very heavy duty goose ball. Love that the bed is mostly free of obstructions when not using the hitch.
Install took 2.5 hours for two of us and we did have access to a hydraulic lift. I couldn’t imagine trying this install alone or without the lift mostly because of how heavy this hitch is and the bolts/nuts you need to be able to reach and torque down. The worst part was drilling a 4” hole in the bed of a new truck, very nerve racking! I also like that this is custom fit for my truck and there were no hes that needed to be drilled in the frame, everything lined up perfectly.
The etrailer install video was key, very informative and so much better than the instructions that came with the hitch. Delivery of the hitch was fast, only 4 days after ordered.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


Super easy installation with basic tools and know how. Hitch works flawlessly, wouldn't ever want anything other than a B&W. Ease of use and installation is well worth the money, plus after the fact we were able to add the 5th wheel companion which drops right in to the goose hitch. Sweet setup for both.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


This unit was very handy to be able to purchase and install on my Bradford Built flatbed so that I could install my B&W companion hitch with flatbed base on the truck.

The welding was all fairly straight forward and didn't require much except for a few washers and a piece of flat steel for a spacer.

The one down side is that the hitch pin/handle does not have any built in twist-n-lock method to lock it so the pin remains disengaged for the ball or companion assembly install like on the common B&W under truck bed assemblies I've had on several trucks. We ended up installing the pin slightly out of line so that the tip of the pin would catch on the exterior of the receiver when pulled out and then when I wanted to engage the pin just push up on the handle and press the pin back in.

I do like that I can still cover the hitch hole with the cover plate as seen in the picture.


Comments
I still like the hitch and use it with my companion frequently but wish there was a twist and lock function like all the other B&W underbed hitches.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch


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.


Comments
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!

Great fit. I installed this hitch in 4 hours with a little help from my wife. She helped me fish a chain through the hole in the bed and attach it to a floor jack. We use it in conjunction with an Andersen Ultimate fifth wheel hitch. I used it to pull a 16,000 lb fifth wheel trailer 100 miles with no issues. Everything is still tight.

  • Truck Bed Measurement for Drilling 4 inch Hole for B and W Gooseneck Turnoverball Hitch
    I checked with B and W and they do state that the center of the 4 inch hole for the ball of the # BWGNRK1217 to fit through does need to be 46-1/2 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed. They do show in their install diagram that is SHOULD land in the ball area of the truck bed like you mentioned. You might double check the measurement and also double check you are measuring from the rear truck bed edge. Hook the tape measure over the rear edge and drag it forward into the bed.

    To use a Curt e16 fifth wheel hitch part # C16115 in the bed of a 2018 Nissan Titan XD SV short bed the first thing you'd need is the B and W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1217-5W and then to convert it to a standard set of fifth wheel rails you'd need the # 16310 which is what the E16 requires. Since this is only rail system we have that fits your truck there isn't a way to go without using the adapter. So instead you might consider using the Turnoverball rail kit I mentioned and...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2016 Nissan Titan XD to Tow 2018 Forest River Sabre 5th Wheel
    The Forest River Sabre series of 5th wheel trailers ranges in unloaded weight from about 8600-lbs to about 12,500-lbs so I recommend at least an 18K-rated hitch so that once your trailer is fully loaded you will still have a good safety margin with your 2016 Nissan Titan XD. Since your 2016 Nissan Titan XD truck is a short bed, you will need a sliding type 5th wheel hitch to ensure enough turning clearance when you're making tight near-90-degree turns. If you have the factory integrated...
