Video Transcript for B and W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler Review

Randy: Hey guys, Randy here at etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at the Extend-A-Goose from B&W.Now, this is going to solve a lot of problems that people have, maybe not necessarily in a V-nose trailer like this, but on the flat front or wider V nose, of the side of your trailer wanting to come up and make contact with your cab. This is going to allow us to move our connection point forward 10" as that gives us a lot more space between our trailer and the cab of our truck.The thing I like about this particular setup is that we're not moving the weight rearward on our truck. All of the weight is still going to be right down on top of our ball where we want it. That's going to give us great handling characteristics in our truck, and it's going to make sure we're not putting excess wear and tear on it. And when that truck and trailer in close proximity, without this, it can cost you a lot of money in trailer and truck repairs and also cost you some pride.

Sometimes people forget they're trying to make that last final turn, and they're trying to get their wheel turned enough and they're not watching that corner. They don't have anybody watching that corner. You wind up crushing the cab or the back glass, and it's just not ideal.Something else we appreciate about this is, is that it is lockable, So we can stick a padlock through there and prevent that handle from being moved. When we're ready to disconnect or connect, we'll lift up and rotate that out. It's going to get our handle locked in the outright position.

We'll move that back, drop it down on the ball, push it back forward, and release our handle.The quality of construction is really, really good here. The welds are perfect in every spot. They've been cleaned up really well, and that gray powder coat finish is one of the most durable we run into here at etrailer. The gray powder coat finish is also something B&W is known for, so people will know you're using a really good coupler. You can see the plate down here that catches it.

It is really thick, thicker than most that I've seen. Overall, I think if you're looking for top notch quality, this is going to be the coupler you want to look for.Now, as far as tongue weight does, the offset coupler can go up to 6,000 pounds. That's the maximum downward force we want to put on the truck, and it has a 24,000 pound gross trailer weight rating. It's going to be the total weight of your trailer and anything that you have loaded up on it. That's going to cover a lot of situations.

If you need to exceed that, we do have some higher capacity couplers. You just might not get the offset that you're looking for here, so just keep that in mind. Another thing to keep in mind, never exceed the capacity of your truck. Just because your coupler can do it doesn't mean your truck can, so check that owner's manual.Now, as far as the installation goes we're going to show you in a minute. There's a series of holes and they're offset just a little bit. That allows us to use this coupler in the straight pin or that tilted pin configuration and still keep the head running straight. Although if you want those incremental adjustments, they're going to be closer to 2" then, if you want to keep everything straight and in line. You'll see as we connect too the bevel here is really helpful. It's tough to get your ball dead center underneath here. Everybody knows that. As you drop it down and on, as that weight applies pressure, it's going to slip right in there for you, make it a really easy thing to connect to. Then we just get it locked up and head on down the road.Now, in my opinion, this is going to be an excellent solution. I like the fact that it's on the trailer. We don't have to switch it out back and forth. Overall, if you ask my opinion, if I needed an offset like this to get some separation, I'd definitely go with this one.Now, the 8" of adjustment is really nice. It's kind of in line with a lot of the other couplers that we have, but something you'll notice on the B&W compared to competitors is that we've got a hole every inch along the way. Most of these are going to be separated closer to like 2, 2-1/2, 2-11/16 on your spacing, so this is going to allow us to fine-tune this one a little bit more than what we have with some of the other ones.Now to get it installed you'll need your old coupler removed, of course. We'll bring this one dine, line it up with our tube, and we'll begin to slide that up and in. Now, as we do this, we want the bottom of our coupler to match pretty close to where our old coupler was. We'll slide through a 3/4" pin, standard gooseneck pin. The pin's not included, so be sure to either retain your old one or purchase a new one.Once we've got that in place, we're going to run our hex bolt down. Now we're going to use a torque wrench for this. You want to torque it down to the appropriate specification. Once we've got that set, it's time to move onto the jam nut. Now both of these are going to use 1-1/8". Yours might be a little different, but generally it's going to be 1-1/8". Bring that down so it makes contact, and we'll put some torque on it there just to ensure that that bolt's not going to back out on us.To make our connection, of course, we'll want our coupler to be unlocked. We're going to lower it down, and that beveled edge we talked about earlier, even if we're not dead on center with it, it's going to help guide it in and make sure we can make our connection. Once that's down, we've got our jack stored. Just want to come in, release our handle, move our plate forward. Make the rest of your connections. You're going to be ready to hit the road.

Just what we needed to extend our new trailer. the welding was fabulous and made my hubby jealous he couldn't weld this good. :-) So glad we ordered from you. The speed in which we received the item was great. No complaints here and would order again from your company. 713235

I bought this for my 8 wide square front trailer. I own a short box and the turning radius was just not what I wanted. Now that I have this I am not worried about smashing out my back window on my truck. The trailer hauls nicely and you would never know the sleeve of the trailer is pushed back. 555306

I live in the Flint Hills of Northeast Kansas and we started using a Bar Six Cake feeder on our pickup to take care of cattle on winter pasture. I couldn't pull my trailer without crunching the cake box. I saw an extend-a-goose on another truck with a similar set-up and I thought this might be the answer. I charted out my problem on paper and figured out the trigonometry that I could increase my turning radius by 18 degrees with the 10" drop in the hitch. I went ahead and ordered the item and installed it the day it came, which incidentally is always very quick with E-Trailer products. It worked like a charm. We still have to be careful with the trailer, but the extender helps me do my job more efficiently. 345502

The coupler is good quality and easy to install. It applies the down force from the trailer at the design point, so there is no compromise in trailer handling qualities for the truck. My truck is a 2016 Ford F-150 crew cab with a short bed, which has limited clearance for the gooseneck. My trailer is a two horse Sundowner gooseneck, which has a V-nose. With the extender, I can make the tightest possible turn moving forward with good clearance between the cab and trailer. Backing up, there is plenty of clearance provided that I do not jackknife the trailer. I estimated that contact would occur with an 82 degree angle between the trailer and truck. That means there is clearance for any maneuver you want to actually make, but of course if you jackknife the trailer too much it would be possible to damage the truck. This is an excellent solution for a v-nose trailer with the F150 crew cab. I would not recommend it for a flat nose trailer. I formerly had a standard bed F150 that I pulled this trailer with. There is no noticeable difference in pulling with the short bed and extended coupler as compared with the 2011 standard bed. The 2016 has more capacity thanks to the lower weight of the aluminum body and the higher torque of the 3.5L turbo charged V6. 426740

Works great. I have not had any incidents or close calls in maneuvering the trailer. Did have one minor issue. Wasps like to enter the holes and build nests. Had to tape over them.

Excellent product and a "must have" for anyone towing a gooseneck trailer with a short-bed truck. And under "Lessons learned the hard way" file: add 8"-10" to your safety chains.

I absolutely love the extend-a goose coupler for my 3 horse Featherlite trailer. Those extra 8 inches of length is just enough to allow me to hook up to my short box pickup truck and i can still do a 90 degree jackknife without pooching out the back window!!! Worth every penny if you don't have the 8' box!! Cheers from Vancouver,Canada! Hank 745388

Bought a 35' gooseneck trailer with a granny attic but when I went to hook up my short bed Dually, I couldn't make a turn without hitting the cab of truck.

  • Offset Recommendation for 2017 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
    We do have a possible solution for you but there isn't a hitch ball like the Reese # RP30140 that offers an offset to the factory gooseneck hitch in your 2017 Ram 2500 short bed. Instead I recommend using the B&W Extend-A-Goose Coupler # BWTEXA4200 on your gooseneck trailer. It'll give you 10 inches of offset which is way more than you'll get from a hitch ball. It fits on standard 4 inch diameter gooseneck outer tubes.

  • Extend-A-Goose Coupler to Increase Clearance with 2018 Ram 3500 Factory Gooseneck
    There is not an offset gooseneck ball available for the 2018 Ram 3500 with factory gooseneck but the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200 that you referenced can be used so long as your trailer has a 4-inch diameter outer tube. This coupler will give you 10-inches of offset.

    Unfortunately there is not an offset ball option compatible with the Ford Factory hitch. The only gooseneck hitch with that offset option is the B&W Turnoverball. To give you additional clearance when towing, I recommend the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler - 2-5/16" Ball - 10" Offset - 24,000 lbs # BWTEXA4200.

  • Is there an Offset Ball for the Ford Factory Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
    I wish I had better news for you but there isn't an offset ball that fits the Ford factory gooseneck hitch. However, depending on the design of your gooseneck coupler you may be able to use the B&W Extend-A-Goose # BWTEXA4200. This coupler features a 10 inch offset for more clearance. I have linked a video review of this coupler for you.

    Using an offset coupler depends on the weight capacity. You can absolutely use a 9 inch offset coupler if it can handle the capacity of your 3 car trailer. We do not carry a square offset coupler, so I can't give you the part you are seeking. The only offset gooseneck coupler we currently have is the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler - 2-5/16" Ball - 10" Offset - 24,000 lbs # BWTEXA4200. This adapter will work with a trailer that has up to that 24K capacity. Unfortunately it is...

  • Installation of B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler
    Yourr trailer's coupler uses set screws to hold the tube in place instead of a cross pin. In this case you'll still use the set screws in the same fashion they're being used to install the Extend-A-Goose # BWTEXA4200 and you won't use a cross pin through the pin holes.

  • Purpose Of Offset Holes On B And W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler
    I called my contact at B&W about the Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler, part # BWTEXA4200.

  • Best Offset Option for Fifth Wheel Towing with 2014 Ford F-150 5-1/2 ft Bed
    An offset that doesn't pivot will always give you better cab clearance. The # BWTEXA4200 does move the trailer 10 inches back but when you are making a tight turn (when you'd need it the most), that offset moves to the side and actually brings the trailer back nearly to where it would be without the offset. So an offset on the hitch ball side that doesn't move like the # BWGNXA4085 would give you a more "true" offset when needed. For your 2014 Ford F-250 with a 5-1/2 foot bed you'd...

The Extend-A-Goose slides into the goose neck trailer's larger outer tube (4-inch diameter is standard). This is certainly something you can do yourself provided that the coupler's 50-lb weight is not an issue. This coupler can be removed and re-installed as needed.

For something that site between the hitch and the trailer, like part # 19308, I would need to know what gooseneck hitch you have on your pickup. These are hitch specific so only certain ones will fit with your towing setup. Let me know what you have and I can see if we have anything for you.

  • Max Distance Behind Gooseneck Ball for Trailer Turning Clearance
    For your 1993 Dodge Cab and Chassis with 10 foot bed, the distance from the hitch ball to the back of the bed needed would depend on your trailer as they are all slightly different. You would need to measure from the center of the ball to the farthest rear edges of your truck bed and then measure from the center of your gooseneck coupler that same distance to see if there is an impact point. If you need to gain a little space, we have the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler - 2-5/16"...

It sounds like you are using a B&W Offset ball like # BWGNXA4085 which gives you 4-inches of offset. It is okay to use these two items at the same time. Since this Extend-A-Goose replaces a standard straight tube you will have little change to the trailer's handling, apart from the better clearance it provides.

    The B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200 is designed to give you 10" of clearance so you can complete turns safely in a short bed truck (see diagram). The handle on this unit will easily hook up to the ball and also it is lockable. It is designed to fit onto a standard 2 and 5/16 diameter gooseneck ball. Other than getting a sliding hitch the coupler is your best option. I added a product video that describes the operation of # BWTEXA4200 I have added a link to our...

  • Offset Gooseneck Coupler Recommendation For A 2019 Chevy 2500HD Crewcab Short Bed.
    The B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200 provides an additional inch of clearance at 10" vs. the SB1, it is lockable with an # ML1KA padlock for additional security, and has a beveled gooseneck opening with spring-loaded handle that makes hook up easier vs. the SB1 quick release coupler in my opinion. The final reason I like this coupler is because of the quality construction. Made here in the USA with the gray powder coat finish that B & W is known for. For these reasons...

  • Definition of Weight Capacity and Vertical Load Limited for B&W Offset Gooseneck Coupler
    The weight capacity of 24,000 pounds would be the most the trailer can weigh. So the gross weight capacity of gooseneck coupler # BWTEXA4200 is 24,000 pounds. The vertical load limit is the amount of weight pushing down on the ball. On a regular hitch it's called tongue weight. So as long as the trailer "tongue" weight is under 6,000 pounds it will be within the capacity of this coupler.

  • Offset Gooseneck Ball Compatibility with Ford F-350 with Factory 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Prep Package
    Reese, who makes the factory gooseneck hitch for Ford trucks, does not currently offer a compatible offset gooseneck ball. However, another option is using an offset coupler, such as the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler, # BWTEXA4200. It features a 10-inch offset, which is more than the offset provided by the gooseneck balls, which offer an offset of 4 to 5 inches. The Extend-A-Goose fits a 2-5/16 inch ball and has an outer diameter of 4 inches. I've attached a video review of the...

  • Will B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler Work on Short Bed 2018 Ram with Factory Gooseneck
    Yes, the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200 that you referenced will work great with the factory gooseneck ball on your 2018 Ram 2500. This is a perfect solution for creating the needed cab clearance during sharp turns, especially since there isn't an offset ball available that fits the factory puck system on your truck. The coupler will fit 4" standard diameter outer tubes on the trailer and provides a 10" offset. I have attached a short video review that you can check...

  • Ram Factory Gooseneck Compatibility with Aftermarket Flatbed
    If you install an aftermarket flat-bed that is 6-7 inches higher than the stock bed, you would need to create a recessed pocket for your gooseneck hitch to be used which many of the aftermarket companies account for. It is not uncommon on flatbed truck beds to have that recessed gooseneck. The only thing to be aware of is the turning clearance needed for your flat bed when using a gooseneck trailer. You will want to make sure you account for the pivot point to ensure you will be able...

  • Will B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler Work on 4 Star Horse Trailer
    As long as your horse trailer features a 4 inch diameter outer tube (which is pretty standard) the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200 that you referenced will work really nicely to replace its inner tube. It will provide a 10 inch offset for increased cab clearance during sharp turns and it looks to have plenty of capacity (24,000 pounds) for your trailer. When installing the coupler you will just use the set screws to secure it in place just like how they're used for...
