Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Want to make sure no one can just take the hitch ball out of your truck - while this folds out of the way, it stays permanently attached
  • Have a hard time reaching into the wheel well to release the handle for the hitch ball and would rather secure it from the truck bed

No, if you:

  • Are bothered by having to cut out a larger hole than the typical underbed gooseneck hitch to accommodate the folding ball
  • Like the overall look of your truck and would rather have something a little less intrusive
Get complete access to your truck bed when you're not towing thanks to the convenient fold-down design of the ball on this above-bed gooseneck hitch. Use easy-to-grab T-handle to position ball.

Review from a similar Folding Ball GN Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


The hitch is extremely stout. The install was not so bad but the instructions lack a bunch of detail. When received, parts were missing. See pics. After a few trips to the hardware store I managed to put the parts together to install the hitch. The fact that I was on a stringent timeline made this task more difficult. The template for centering the frame hitch was non-existant so allot of time was spent with a tape measure and a marker. All in all its a solid unit. I would suggest a buy on this one but etrailer needs to work the transportation issues of their boxes. The Curt over bed portion was all there and in a solid box.

Review from a similar Folding Ball GN Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


Etrailer is awesome, not so much for this product. My first and primary issue is that the safety chain u-bolts are positioned to close to the angle iron brackets to allow clearance for them to freely move up and down with the nuts installed (see photos). I can force them up from below with a hammer and stomped them back down from above. This problem is made worse due to the proximity to the ball, if I dont ensure they arent stomped down as much as possible they would interfere with my coupler when turning. I'm honestly still worried about interference if I find myself in any off camber turn. The other problem I have isnt the fault of the hitch, but now that its installed it is still much more intrusive to the bed space when folded flat than I anticipated. In the past I've had under bed mount balls, this being a work truck I thought the cheaper option would work but I regret that decision.

Review from a similar Folding Ball GN Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


This hitch does not come with the correct hardware to fit a 2019 Silverado 1500 LD and the instructions are incorrect. I figured this out after referencing the instructions for an underbed hitch. Very frustrating install. Had to purchase $[XX] worth of additional hardware to get it completed. Called for help and gentleman that answered the phone had no idea how to help me. I think the hitch is a good hitch though now that it is finally in.

Works great. Only issue is the chrome on the ball peeling, but that's because I didn't grease it enough. Otherwise no issues at all

Review from a similar Folding Ball GN Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


Very nice product!!! Works well and is easy to install. Would have given it a 5 star but the product did not come with install papers so had to look up online. I tow a 28 foot gooseneck regularly and it does great!!! Also like that it lays flat in bed for when I need to haul something without trailer.

Review from a similar Folding Ball GN Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


Not very happy with this hitch. Install was much more difficult than my prior hitch. It's intrusive in the bed (the big rectangular plate is thick and you always know it's there). One winter on it and it's rusting and becoming difficult to deploy. It's hard to get the pin extended to secure the ball at times. Overall it's just not an impressive product in my opinion.


Comments
Thank you for your review. I would remove the elements when not in use to further the life span. Also, the hitch ball needs greased before each use. Any rust should be sanded and covered with anti-corrosive paint.

Review from a similar Folding Ball GN Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


Over all a very stout set up but I was disappointed that I have factory threaded inserts in my frame for gooseneck hitches less than 2 inches from where this one mounts but this just didn't utilize them. It does use holes in the frame so there isn't any drilling though. Also you have to cut the bottom seam of the bed inside the wheel well (per instructions) to get the cross members in and have to cut a rather large square hole in the bed floor instead of just a hole for the ball ( also per instructions).

Review from a similar Folding Ball GN Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


Got this for the 01 2500HD Sierra. Metal is extremely thick and strong. However, The holes for the bracket pull the cross bars up to the bottom of the truck better. Makes it seem like a lot of the weight is resting on the bolts and not the crossbars/frame.

Review from a similar Folding Ball GN Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


I was looking for a 5th wheel solution and found this setup. Install was strait forward and Easy. It workes great with my 26 foot camper trailer. It folds almost flat with the bed floor for a flat load surface for sheet goods. The bottom of the mount does not drop to low to impead with exhaust pipe, hoses, drive shaft or rear diff. A great product sold by a good company that's there with support and solutions. Thanks etrailer.

Review from a similar Folding Ball GN Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


I currently purchased this product. It is a great setup and pretty simple to install. I had received it about 3 days later. Was missing a few hardware parts so I could install at that time. I had called up the company and let them know and they sent me a new kit no charge. The product is great setup and I would definitly recommend it to anyone else. Thanks for all the great help!!!

    Yes, the Curt gooseneck trailer hitch # C61503-52 is listed as a fit for your 1995 Chevy C/K series truck with 8 foot bed. The only exception is that it will not fit if the frame width is 34 inches. This is measured from the outboard side of one frame rail to the outboard side of the other rail.

  • Do Dually 3500 and Single Rear Wheel 2500 Chevy Trucks have the Same Frame Width
    The frames on GM 3/4 ton and 1-ton trucks usually are the same even if one is a dually and the other is not. To be sure if you can tell me the years of the trucks I can determine if both use the same gooseneck hitch/installation kit if that is what you are looking for.

    Curt has their part # C61503-52 as a confirmed fit for your 1990 GMC Sierra 2500 that I would recommend for you. It's priced great, installs easily, and is easy to flip up/down when needed and is very reliable. The setup is custom fit for your truck so it takes care of the correct location (right above the rear axle), and does not require and drilling or welding of the truck frame either.
