Video Transcript for Bulldog Adjustable Gooseneck Coupler Review

Randy: Hey guys, Randy here at etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at a gooseneck coupler from Bulldog. This is going to be a pretty standard, kind of ordinary type coupler. You see we've got a release, here. Raise that open, slide it back til that pin goes down in position to lock it around your ball. Now these are often used in utility applications, farm applications.

They can be used on horse trailers. This is about any type of gooseneck trailer. This is going to be like your entry level or your baseline. Other couplers that are available would be one that automatically latches when it goes down on your ball or on cushioned goosenecks. That's more appropriate for like your horse trailers and stuff like that.Now as far as reviews, it gets really good reviews.

People like it. If you're looking for this basic type coupler, I think it's a really good solution, seems to be more sturdy. Something else I like is the taper that we have here on the bottom of our plate. As we we're connecting this earlier, our ball was a little offset and it allowed that to come over and line up appropriately for us.This is going to be a long coupler, this is going to be more ideal for your trucks that sit a little bit lower. Basically from our first hole that we have here down to the bottom, it's going to be around 11 inches.

Short couplers are closer to five or five and a half, just to give you kind of an idea there. You'll notice it is an unpainted coupler. It's going to allow you to match it to your truck and trailer. And the same thing with the outer tube that comes with it, it's also going to come unpainted. But instead of just having one set bolt like this one that came on the trailer, it's going to have two set bolts.

Gives us double that pressure going in, keeping it from moving. And of course, it's going to be secured with a pin, as well.Here's what that's going to look like. It's going to be about 20 inches long. Something to definitely keep in mind, it's hollow on the top. I'd recommend putting a plate on there and welding it, just like what we have up here. That prevents moisture from getting down in the inside. It's going to cause us issues. Now, the inside diameter, here, is going to be four inches.Now, the coupler is adjustable. From the lower hole to the upper hole, we're going to have the total range there of eight inches. That gets us in line with most vehicles we'll be connecting to. And it's going to offer a 30,000 pound gross trailer weight rating, that's going to be the total weight of your trailer and anything you have loaded up on it.Depending on your application, that's going to depend if this is going to be the right one for you. If I we're into just hauling heavy loads, if I we're into hauling hay and things like that, I would buy this one. If I often hooked my trailer up, disconnected it, hooked it up, and disconnected it, I'd want one of the auto latch designs. If you're going to be using this for a horse trailer, especially if there's living quarters in the front, the cushioned one from Convert-A-Ball might be a better option because it'll keep everything smoother in the trailer.Now for attaching your coupler, of course you'll want to have your gate open. Then it's just a matter of lowering it down onto the ball. You see how that tapered gate's going to allow our trailer to slide over just a little bit, self center on that ball. Anytime you're backing up to a gooseneck, it's really hard to get it dead center and this can really help out with that. We'll come in, need to pull our gate back, release our handle, and then just tap it forward a little bit so that panel drops it down in that. At that point, get the rest of your stuff hooked up and you'll be ready to hit the road.Now when it's time to unhook, its going to be the opposite procedure. Lift up, rotate, let that gate come forward, then just use your trailer jacks to lift it up and off.

Replacement on our hay trailer was the call for the hitch. It was easy to weld on and I like the pin on this hitch. It never moves like ones that are just jam nut tight. Can run down the road and not worry that this hitch will move out of ajustment. Fast shipping and a great company to work with. 469052

  • Can a Hole be Drilled in Gooseneck Trailer Outer Tube to Install Adjustable Coupler
  • You would need to contact the trailer manufacturer to see if you can safely use the trailer after drilling a hole for an adjustable coupler such as # BD0287610300. the outer tube would have to have one to use this type of coupler so provided there was a hole and the trailer manufacturer was fine with adding one then you could use it. The outer diameter of the coupler tube is 4 inches so the inner diameter of the outer tube needs to be slightly larger for it to fit. Another option,...

  • What Is Needed For More Clearance Between The Bed Rails And Gooseneck Trailer On A Ford F-150 Truck
  • A good rule to follow is to allow 6 inches or more of clearance between the sides of the bed and the bottom of the gooseneck trailer to allow for dips and bumps in the road. You will want to check your gooseneck coupler to see if it has an adjustable tube with set screws that will allow you to adjust the height of the coupler for extra clearance when attached to your vehicle. If it does then you can loosen the set screws and adjust the length of the tube to get more clearance. If...

  • Troubleshooting Gooseneck Hitch that Won't Lock onto 2-5/16 inch Ball
  • It really sounds like your gooseneck hitch is designed for a 3 inch gooseneck ball. I know you said that you attached to your friends B and W hitch, but B and W offers a 3 inch ball # BWGNXA2025. The 3 inch setup is less common but it is still seen out there. If your trailer is larger it is very possible that you need a 3 inch ball. Which there are no adapters like the Spyder that have 3 inch balls. This would call for the replacement of your coupler or the install of a gooseneck hitch...

  • How to Install Gooseneck Coupler BD0289500300 on a Trailer
  • Gooseneck coupler # BD0289500300 is installed by welding it, using gussets, directly to a trailer with no existing coupler or fifth wheel attachment. This coupler is not a 5th-wheel to gooseneck adapter, but a coupler meant to be installed on a naked trailer. If you have an existing 5th-wheel kin pin on your trailer, a better choice for you would be to use a 5th-wheel to gooseneck adapter like # CAB-C5G. Using this adapter would be the easiest way to equip your current fifth wheel...

  • Can A Hole Be Drilled In Trailer Gooseneck Coupler To Use Replacement Coupler Outer Tube
  • You will need to contact the trailer manufacturer to see if there is a problem with drilling a hole for the pin in the tube on the trailer to use with the # BD0287610300 inner tube. This tube has a diameter of 4 inches so you want to make sure the outer tube you have can accommodate the tube. You may want to consider another option which is to remove your old coupler and use a new one like part # BD0289500300. This should be installed by a qualified welder.

  • Will the Bulldog Gooseneck Coupler, # BD0289500300 Fit Into an Existing Gooseneck Trailer Assembly
  • In order to determine if the Bulldog Gooseneck Coupler, # BD0289500300, will fit in your existing trailer assembly, you can measure the inner diameter of the assembly. The inner diameter will need to be greater than 4 inches. You most likely would not need the outer tube since it sounds like you already have one. However, if you decided to replace the whole assembly,, the outer tube would need to be welded to the trailer by a qualified professional. Since the old coupler came off the...

  • Gooseneck Coupler Recommendations for a Pace American Trailer with Gooseneck King Pin
  • It sounds like you have something like the part # BD0289590300 on your trailer now and you are looking for a way to convert it to a gooseneck hitch that is designed to couple to a gooseneck ball. Which the only inner tube gooseneck hitch that would fit your square 4-1/2 inch outer tube would be the # BD1289210300. A better solution might be to completely remove what you have on your trailer and install an entire new assembly like part # BD0289500300.

  • Is the Inner Tube Portion of Bulldog Gooseneck Coupler, Part # BD0289500300 Available Separately
  • We do offer just the inner tube portion for Bulldog # BD0289500300 gooseneck coupler. That part # is BD1289050300. I do see that you have already ordered the entire gooseneck coupler, part # BD0289500300. Given that your original coupler could potentially have hidden damage or have been weakened by the accident, your decision to replace the entire unit is the right choice for safety reasons.

  • Replacement Round Gooseneck Coupler For Lakota Horse Trailer
  • I recommend Bulldog Gooseneck Coupler part # BD0289500300 which has a 30,000 lb capacity and set screws. This particular coupler is the inner and outer tube so it would replace the whole coupler on your 2007L Lakota Horse Trailer. It is a 4-1/2" outer tube that would need to be welded on by a professional welder. If you are trying to replace just the inner or outer tube I would need to know the diameter of the tube and the brand if you can find it on a sticker that would be helpful.
