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).

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!!!

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


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


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.

Works great. Glad we bought it. Was a little tough to install for somebody that has never done one but after doing it I can now do them again. Will be buying another one at a later time for my other truck I am currently working on.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 1973 Chevy Truck
    The Curt Overbed Folding Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # C6130-52 that you referenced is custom designed to fit 2011 and newer GM trucks. Its not designed to fit certain width frames. If you are looking for a gooseneck setup for your 1973 Chevy Truck then I would recommend the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1400 as this is custom designed for your vehicle. I attached a link to installation instructions also.

  • Is Second Person Needed To Fold Down Gooseneck Ball On Curt Overbed, Folding Ball Trailer Hitch
    Once the Curt Overbed, Folding Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part # C61301-52 is installed in the bed of your truck a second person is not required to operate the hitch. You just pull the door up that is near the hitch ball, then pivot the ball down to secure it and close the door to cover the hitch ball in the bed of your truck. The ball has a t-handle that makes it easy to raise or lower the ball. I could not find any mention in the instructions of a required second person when installing...

  • Gooseneck Adapter Compatibility with 21,000 lbs Toy Hauler 5th Wheel
    We no longer carry the Andersen Ultimate you reference, but according to what I can find online is rated for 24,000 lbs towing capacity. So you won't have any problem with the hitch itself. You will need to determine the weight capacity of your Curt gooseneck. For instance the Curt hitches for a 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 are # C607-604, # C611-624, and # C61301-52 all of which are rated for 30,000 lbs. As long as your gooseneck hitch capacity is over the 21,000 lbs, you will be fine...

    I have a solution for you, but the # 9480 is not compatible with the Curt Hide-a-Goose hitch # C61301-52 and there is not a 5th wheel hitch that will attach directly to this gooseneck ball. You're going to want to start by using the Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter for Curt Double Lock Gooseneck Trailer Hitches - 20,000 lbs # C16210, which will allow you to connect a 5th wheel hitch that fits in the industry standard base rails.
