Pop-In Ball

Designed especially for your heavy-duty truck, this underbed 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 underbed 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.

Perfect fit for my 2012 Ram 2500 with Ramboxes! Allows me to use a the Ford OEM Companion #BWRVK3300 to haul a camper with the sidewinder and still have the option to have a removable gooseneck ball. Couldn’t be happier! Thanks again!

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


Probably the simplest connections I've ever seen for a gooseneck hitch. Installs in about 30 seconds and out in about the same. Easily stows under the seat and even comes with a spare dust cap for the sockets.

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

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck 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!

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


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!

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


Purchased for a 2006 Silverado Crew Cab Duramax. Previous owner left the underbed portion of the assembly. The actual ball mount is very easy to install with detailed instructions. Plastic trim on top is sort of cheap with unreliable double sided tape from the manufacturer, which I will have to replace. I would not recommend for lifted trucks as the ball sits approx 6 inches higher than a hideaway turnover type, unless you have that much room to adjust your gooseneck trailer. Other than that, I am pleased.

Parts work great. Box was to weak for the heavy part and had busted open. More tape on heavy items is suggested.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


I installed this by myself and it was pretty easy. Everything lined up perfect. I had to drill all the holes in the bed and the instructions were great. No holes i didn't need. I have this on my 2015 F250 and we uses it weekly to haul a roll-off trailer to various locations sometimes daily. It is easy to remove the ball and it came with a nice back to keep it in. It has been in service for about a year. No complaints on this item. Great product. Wish I would have taken pictures.

Simple and easy. I have a ford f 350 with the gooseneck package. Drop the ball in and go. I keep my hitch in my truck all summer long. I pull my gooseneck up to 100 miles a day with 16000 pounds. Come winter time the hitch comes right out.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


This hitch works great. I think the plastic beauty cover could have been made out of sheet metal, I just removed it and put it in storage, there is no way that plastic would survive in the bed of my truck without getting broken. I like the fact that the ball is replaceable with a clip on the bottom holding it in place, but the ball does not fit in the hole quite as tight as I would like, I suppose with the down pressure of a trailer on it there is probably no movement. All in all I like towing with this gooseneck hitch better than a fifth wheel hitch, no noises and such. I have been pulling a trailer that I haul tractors on and it has performed very well for that. The weight of trailer and load has been up to 14,000 lbs. This hitch has been the solution for my trailer hauling problem, having a fifth wheel hitch but needing to haul a gooseneck trailer. Love the puck system of installing the fifth wheel and gooseneck hitches.


Comments
The gooseneck hitch has continued to work well for me. It is still the best solution for me to convert from 5th wheel to gooseneck hitch.

I haven't put the hitch ball to use yet, but I gave it 3 stars for being made in China. Unfortunately, it was the only in bed gooseneck hitch ball etrailer had available when I ordered it. The look and fit are good, but looks can be deceiving. Thanks

I ordered the Elite Series Gooseneck hitch for my Ford F-350 with factory in-bed hitch mounts. The hitch is well made and is a breeze to install and remove. The handy storage bag makes it nice to store under my rear seat. I am totally satisfied with this product and recommend it.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


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.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


Very fast ship! I realized I lived near the warehouse and called the morning after I placed the order to see if I could pick it up. It shipped on the 11pm pickup about an hour after I placed the order the previous night! So I received it later that day, saved me a trip, and the hitch was installed less than 24 hours after I ordered. EXCELLENT customer service! Thank you.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck 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!

    For your 2012 Ram 3500 we have the Reese Elite fifth wheel rail kit part # RP30158-52 is a confirmed fit. The corrugation of your truck bed and the lack of a flat spot for where the ball/pucks come out would not be an issue either. If you have a long bed and need a fixed hitch you'd want the part # RP30142 or if you have a short bed truck and need a slider hitch to provide turning clearance the correct hitch you'd need is the part # RP30144.

    There are several ways that you can tow a gooseneck trailer with a 5th wheel trailer hitch. We actually have an FAQ article on this subject which I have linked for you. Probably the easiest way is to adapt the trailer itself to work with the 5th wheel hitch in your truck. To do this the trailer would need to either have the type of coupler that has an inner and outer tube where the inner tube can be removed. Then you just replace the regular inner tube with one that has a 5th wheel king...
