Pop-In Ball

Designed especially for your newer Ford Super Duty, this under-bed gooseneck hitch provides superior towing capability along with a variety of unique features. The included Pop-In ball uses an integrated, easy-to-access lever to activate the ball-bearing locking system, securing the ball in the hitch. Quickly remove the ball using the same lever and get absolute, uninhibited use of your truck bed. Because this hitch installs in Reese's Elite Series under-bed rails, all that you will be left with upon removal of the ball and safety chain loops are the ball hole and the small Power Puck cavities in your truck-bed floor - no rails, no bolts. And the included rails also fit Reese Elite Series and Signature Series fifth-wheel hitches (sold separately) for ultimate towing versatility.

Bed bolts were the biggest pain in the butt...although, the assembly thereafter was a breeze! I'll never need to replace this hitch...ever again! Highest quality of materials used, with superior finishes...even though, no one sees it! 808333

Package was delivered with tears in bottom corners, inside the hardware bag was torn open and much of the hardware was loose in box. Inventory revealed 2 parts were missing. Called etrailer customer service and in a few minutes the rep had them on the way to me. Great service! Thank you! 674192

Will try to keep this as real as it gets out there. 2015 F250 XLT Crew Cab 8' Bed Ordered the Reese Elite Gooseneck and Barger 90 degree wiring harness. Received the gooseneck hitch and harness quickly. Free shipping got here in two days. Item came in two boxes. The rails were poorly packaged. Box was basically open and beat to hell, leaving markings on the rails' paint. Didn't bother me, but might others. The pucks were loose in the box and were lucky they did not fall out. The second box with the ball, ball mount, harness and misc. hardware was packed so well it took about 5 minutes to take off all the staples and then each product was individually boxed inside. Wish they would treat the rail box with the same care. Instructions are ok. Used the online install video instead. The video is slightly simplified as getting the nuts on the bolts is a slight challenge for a one man install. I was able to do the entire installation by myself with the exception of the four rail-to-frame bolts. Getting these snugged up to the point of being able to torque took two people simply because the nuts are hidden on the backside of the rail...particularly the driver-side front...which is slightly behind the gas tank, but still accessible. My F250 is factory lifted 4-5" so I did not have to remove the rear wheels, nor did I have to remove the spare tire or heat shield. Lower trucks will need the rear wheels pulled. Installing the ball mounting plate took some doing. Got one bolt on then decided to actually install the ball into the plate from above pulling the plate tight below. I used vice grips to basically keep the plate mounted tight rather than trying to lift it from underneath with one had and bolt it with the other. For me the most time consuming part of the project was getting the darned bed bolts off to lift the right side. Broke the T50 bit they supplied and then two others. Finally gave up and ground off two of the remaining bolts...and ordered replacements. Tip for those doing this on their own, you may want to spray the bolts from under with PB Blaster the day before you intend to install. I forgot and the issue was likely that the bolts were rusted. The wiring harness was a breeze, although I wish a shorter version was available. (Perhaps I missed it). Had to loop/zip tie about 2-3' under the bed. Connecting between the factory connectors did require me to pull the mounting plate. Was a bit tight to just slip the new connector in. Also, working the harness thru the hole in the bed side was a bit tight. Install probably took 10 minutes after getting the holes drilled. Total install time for this slightly skilled guy was about 3-1/2 hours...after the bed bolts fiasco. Oh...and did it all with a cast on the left arm. Ha! Now to see how she tows! 430852

The system was easy to install and works great. It leaves for a nice, clean, working area inside the box when the hitch unit isn't in service. Great service by e-trailer as well! 285444

Review from a similar Elite Series in Gooseneck Hitch


I've now towed a few thousand miles with this fifth wheel hitch, and am very satisfied with it. The sliding mechanism works well, to get extra clearance between truck & trailer. I also like the fact that the fifth wheel pad itself can be easily detached from the rest of the frame, because that makes it possible for one person (me) to remove it in two pieces. 671168


Comments
Ive towed a few thousand more miles by now, and still very happy with this hitch. As mentioned by others, its good to lower the landing gear to reduce weightwear & tear on the hitch, prior to sliding. The nose of our 5-er is sculpted well, so rarely need to slide it for maneuvering. However, its an absolute necessity to get my 2 portable generators out of the front bay without unhooking very handy when overnighting on the road!

Awesome!! Quick shipping!! Fit right in my Ford with the factory system in the bed. Easy to install. Preassembled. Works great!! Takes a little time to adjust properly the first time but once it's adjusted it takes 2 min's to put it in truck or take it out. It' worth the cost!!! 359926

Not real happy with the hitch. Hitching and unhitching can be difficult. Have to hold open with a bungee cord back to the bed of the truck to get unhitched. Hitching on an angle is difficult to get the hitch to latch 735662


Comments
There is a catch to keep the handle in the open position, but it is fairly subtle. When the handle is pulled out, the catch can be activated by pushing the handle toward the tailgate of the truck.

Perfect equipment. Quick install and removal so I can use my truck to haul flat material without a fixed hitch getting in the way. I’ve been towing a 7 ton dump trailer or pulling a 28” flat bed w a 5 ton skid steer for a year now flawlessly. Highly recommended equipment and company at etrailer 736778

Wanted to leave a message about all my experiences with etrailer. I purchased a new Ford F-350 Super Duty in August and wanted a lot of aftermarket items for it. I accidentally found etrailer on the internet while searching. They have everything I was looking for. Their pricing was very competitive with free shipping on a lot of items. The last item purchased was a Reese gooseneck ball and safety chain hookup. It’s a great item, very easy to install and shipped the next day. I’m very pleased with etrailer. 571867

Review from a similar Elite Series in Gooseneck Hitch


My Reese Elite 5th wheel hitch arrived UPS. 143lbs and used a hand dolly to take off the truck and wheel to my garage. Came packaged ok. Pre-assembled and everything was included. Read the Manual, which for older people helps, showing lube and parts, install info etc...referring back to the manual/instructions. Used a wooden table(same height as my tailgate) to wheel it right up to the gate and slid the hitch on a piece of cardboard(from the box) into the position of the puck system. Moving the base first then the hitch plate next. The hitch install was simple and easy. Did not need any help. I did call customer service and made a slight 1/4 turn adjustment to two legs for a tighter fit. There again referring to the manual/instructions provided with the hitch. Very pleased with the hitch over all. It served its purpose and I believe will give us many years of service. We pull a 5th wheel gvwr of 11769lbs and completed over 1200 miles of safe towing. Pleased with my purchase. Thank you. 159385

Review from a similar Elite Series in Gooseneck Hitch


I recently purchased a 2016 Ram 3500 with 5th wheel tow package already present on truck. I wanted an additional goose neck product and looked at various suppliers online and found etrailer products offered for sale. After to speaking with Heather who answered all my questions as well as reviewed feedback from customers I chose to go with the Reese gooseneck kit. I received the product within the shipping date provided to me and I went out to install it. It took me all of 3 mins to install with no issues. I did my best to remove, shake and couldn't get them to budge. It took me a total of 5 mins to remove the parts and storing them back under the rear seat. The parts fit perfect, look great as well as we're the cheapest price I could find. Their online video is all the install instructions you need! I will definitely use etrailer in the future. Thanks Heather! 296158

Great hitch. Very heavy and sturdy. Fits my 2016 F350 with factory puck system like a glove. Very easy drop into pucks and lock into place. The hitch separates into two pieces to make it able to be installed or removed by one person, but two are better. We tow a 16,00 pound 5th wheel with this hitch. 539826

Review from a similar Elite Series in Gooseneck Hitch


Item was received well packaged. All parts were received as expected. I wish I would have taken pictures of box when it was received or as I installed it on my 2015 F250 but rest assured it fit into my Ford with the 5th wheel prep package quite easily. Directions were adequate. My only issue was I did not know if the pre-asembly of the base was torqued correctly. There was no mention of it in the packaging and I do not own a torque wrench so it would have been comforting to know that it was done properly before shipment. However it appeared to be okay and I had no issues towing my 5th wheel the 15 miles from the dealership to my home. Also there is no mention prior to ordering that you need lithium grease to properly lube the moving parts. Make sure you have on hand prior to assembly. Overall, excellent product and I am definitely please with it and highly recommend it. 203214


Comments
I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase one year ago of this hitch. We have towed our 32 crusader across the country and back via different routes with no issues. I have read where others find it heavy to lift in and out of the truck bed. I would too except I remove the hitch plate to lighten the load so that I am lifting two relatively lite pieces instead of one heavy piece. We take the 5th wheel out on the road about every two months so I am happy with how I can separate the two in order to lift them in or out of the truck bed.Extremely easy to install, less than 5 minutes. I am totally satisfied with this product.

The safety chain loops are not big enough to accept the safety hooks for my 24' stock trailer. Easy to install but they need to reengineer the loops. 22987

Why cant you just place a second larger link through that hoop that your chain hook will fit in?

Review from a similar Elite Series in Gooseneck Hitch


I love the ease of this hitch, I think the only thing I would change is how secure the safety chain hooks are. They are loose feeling and I worry if the ball was to come out how secure those hooks would be with the chains tightening. Other then that, highly recommend for price and how easy it is to put in and take out, definitely worth it! 908341
