  • How to Install a Gooseneck Hitch on a 1988 Chevrolet C70
  • I do have an option for you but nothing will be a custom fit for your 1988 Chevrolet C70 as they do not make a direct fit gooseneck hitch for your vehicle. Instead, I recommend taking a look at the Universal Folding Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit part # C61502 with the Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate part # C65500. This option can either be bolted or welded to the truck's frame. It has a 30,000 lb towing capacity and is currently one of the only options we have for your truck at this time. The plate...

  • Will Curt Over-Bed Fixed Ball Gooseneck Hitch Bolt Over Draw-Tite Fold-Down Gooseneck Trailer Hitch?
  • The Curt Over-Bed Fixed Ball Gooseneck Hitch # C61100 requires Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit # C61502 to install and will not bolt over the Fold-Down Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 8339. If your fold-down gooseneck is worn out you will need to replace it.

  • Recommended Gooseneck for 2013 Ram 5500 Crew Cab and Chassis with Deck
  • I can help you find a gooseneck for your 2013 Dodge Ram 5500 Crew Cab and Chassis. I recommend the Curt Flat Plate Gooseneck # C65500, because it is a multi-fit application that can be used on a cab and chassis truck. Typically, the plate would be placed on top of the flat bed over the rear axle. The Universal Rail Kit, part # C61502 can be used to provide the under bed bracing. Holes would need to be drilled through the plate, through the bed and into the frame members and the...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch Option for Cab and Chassis Ford F-450
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and sent him everything you sent me including the pictures and here is what he responded with: Typically we recommend our universal over-bed installation kit, part # C61502, compatible for the over-bed folding & fixed ball gooseneck hitches, parts # C61502 & # C61100 for the cab and chassis trucks. That said this installation kit would also need to be modified to fit the 34” OD cab & chassis frame. We recommend that a certified structural welder perform...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Ford F-550
  • I have a solution for you, but the B and W part # BWGNRK1111 would not fit the F-550. After speaking to my contact at Curt, I have found the Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate # C65500 is a compatible fit for your 2004 Ford F-550 Super Duty. It comes with a 2-5/16 inch ball rated at 30,000 lbs and D rings. With the amount of weight you most likely will be towing, I recommend to install the plate only using the Curt Universal Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit, # C61502 rails. Just bolting the plate...

With the amount of weight you most likely will be towing, I recommend to install the plate only using the Curt Universal Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit, # C61502 rails. Just bolting the plate to the truck without adding rails will not allow it to meet the 30,000 lb rating. Also,...

  • Will Curt Universal Gooseneck Hitch and Install Kit Fit a 2015 Ford F-250
  • The Universal Folding Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit # C61502 only fits much older domestic trucks so the combination of it and hitch # C65500 will not work on your 2015 Ford F-250. But we do have many custom fit gooseneck options that will fit your truck such as Curt hitch # C61332-52 which includes both the hitch and the installation kit. Going with the above mentioned hitch and install kit will also save you some money compared to the universal kit and hitch you originally asked about. And...

  • I have a solution for your 2012 Dodge Ram 5500 Cab and Chassis with the flat bed. The Reese Elite Series Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part # RP30158-52 is not a fit for your truck. I recommend the Curt Universal Folding Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit, part # C61502 for the underbed part of the system, and part # C-52 for the above bed portion of the system.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 1996 Ford F-450
  • If your Ford F-450 has an actual bed and is not a cab and chassis model (with a service bed or flatbed) then you can use the Curt universal folding gooseneck ball rail kit # C61502. You could then use Curt hitch # C-52 or # C65500. A custom hitch for a 1996 Ford F-450 is not available. If you do have a cab and chassis model then you can still use # C65500 but it will require some custom fabrication by having a qualified professional first weld a 1/2 inch steel plate to the frame.

  • What Underbed Support Is Needed For Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate, # C65500, To Meet Maximum GTW Rating
  • I called Curt on the Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate, # C65500, and they said that the plate can be installed to the frame rails with a minimum of six 1/2 inch Grade 5 mounting bolts, but that would not allow the plate to meet the 30,000 lbs. GTW rating. To be able to meet the 30,000 lbs. GTW rating you will have to install the Curt flat plate with the Curt Universal Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit, # C61502. This kit will install under the bed to the frame rails and give the extra reinforcement that...

  • Gooseneck Hitch for 2015 Ford F-550 Cab and Chassis Truck

For example, Curt's # C65500 Gooseneck Flat Plate Hitch can be directly installed on your truck bed on its own or with their Universal Folding Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit # C61502 which provides reinforcement to enable the plate's full 30K capacity to be realized. My contact at Curt Manufacturing advised that any gooseneck application on your truck will require some degree of custom installation. There is no...

  • How to Install Curt Flat Plate Gooseneck Hitch C65500 on 2009 Ram 1500
  • The Curt Flat Plate Gooseneck Hitch # C65500 requires either a universal Rail Kit # C61502 or other custom-fabricated under-bed reinforcement in order to meet its rated capacity of 30K. The installation kit will work in older trucks only but other installation methods are possible. You can have an under-bed steel plate welded to the frame and then bolt the hitch plate to it but you cannot simply bolt the plate directly to the frame.

  • Gooseneck or Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendations for 2000 Ford F350 Cab and Chassis
  • The best hitch for you will really depend on what you're planning on towing. Gooseneck hitches are typically used for commercial or agricultural purposes while 5th wheel hitches are usually for recreational use. We offer a weld-on 5th wheel hitch, part # RP30054 that would have more than enough capacity for your needs. Once the hitch was in place, if you wished to tow gooseneck trailers, you could use an adapter like # KPG5-Q25-IP for a square tube gooseneck coupler or # KPG5-R25-IP for...

  • Will the Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate part # C65500 Require Fabrication to Install
  • The Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate part # C65500 is designed to be installed with the Curt Gooseneck Rails part # C61502 that you referenced and is a universal fit rail that would require a bit of fabrication to install on a truck like yours. To install this kit on your truck frame you are going to need to drill some holes in the frame. By fabrication the cross rails need to be shortened 6-7 inches as well as drilling through the frame if you were to install this in a 2000 Ford F-350 cab...

The recommended way to install it would be to also use the Universal Rail Kit part # C61502.

  • Are There Installation Instruction for the Curt Gooseneck Plate # C65500
  • The Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate # C65500 isn't a custom fit hitch or installation kit so it does not have specific measurements for where it needs to install on a given vehicle. You would mount it so that the center of the ball is either centered over the rear axle or slightly forward of the center of the rear axle. You can attach this hitch directly to the frame rails of the truck using at least six 1/2 inch diameter Grade 5 bolts. Or you can use the Curt Folding Gooseneck Ball Rail...
