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.


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.

Install this heavy-duty hitch on your vehicle so that you can securely tow your gooseneck trailer. Store the removable ball upside down in the hitch when you aren't towing to get complete bed access. Square ball base won't turn in hitch.

by:

Came in a timely manner, about a week from the time I ordered it to it delivered to my door step in Alaska. The hitch itself is very high quality with nice clean welds and sharp clean edges which took almost no prep work to weld in to the frame I had built for it. You could tell by looking at this that B&W uses nice welding equipment and employs quality welders. Overall very happy with this. Installed on Monroe flatbed on F-450 cab and chassis truck.



by:

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.

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.



by:

I used this system BWGNRK1500 to retrofit the standard flat bed gooseneck hitch pocket on my Bradford bed. I wanted to be able to use my B&W companion hitch to pull my 5th wheel trailer so I needed a receiver tube that sits flush with the surface of the bed. This application took me about 3 hours to fabricate and install and it works perfectly. We have since installed the identical system on two other flat bed trucks.

I called because there was a delay in my shipment and the representative that helped me was great in figuring out why and rush it to me as soon as possible.

  • Should Flat Bed or Regular Bed Pickup Truck Be Used to Tow Allvan Gooseneck Trailer
    As a general rule, when towing a gooseneck trailer with a regular bed pickup truck, you will want at least 4-6 inches of clearance from the top of the bed rails to the trailer. I first recommend determining the distance from the base of the truck bed to the top of the side rails on the Dodge Ram 3500. Since you do not yet have the truck, I recommend checking with a local dealer for this information or even a quick online search if you know the year and model you are wanting to buy. You...

  • Where In Truck Bed to Install B and W Turnoverball # BWGNRK1500
    Since flat beds have a tendency to be a bit longer than standard truck bed I'd recommend putting the B and W Turnoverball # BWGNRK1500 right over the rear axle. Any further forward and you'd be more likely to have clearance issues between the rear of the truck bed and the trailer.

    I do have an option for you but we don't have any custom gooseneck hitches for a 1997 Ford F-250/F-350 Cab and Chassis. That said, what you can do is go with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNRK1500 and have it installed professionally as additional gusset and supports would be needed. The custom hitches also don't work with flat-beds since the deck height is not the same between all brands. Therefore, custom fabrication would be needed regardless.
