With the B&W Turnoverball underbed gooseneck trailer hitch you get the best of both worlds. When you go to tow, the Turnoverball creates a sturdy, dependable connection with your gooseneck trailer. And when you're done towing, you can stow the ball upside down in the hitch to get full bed access and a clean appearance.


Easy-to-Remove, Simple-to-Store Hitch Ball

The durable steel hitch ball included with the Turnoverball system secures in the hitch with a sturdy, 5/8" thick steel pin that is incorporated into the end of the operating handle. To lock the ball in place, drop it into the hitch hole in the bed of your truck. Then rotate the handle in your driver's-side wheel well counterclockwise until the latch engages. When the latch is engaged, the spring-loaded pin on the end of the handle will be inserted all the way through the base of the hitch ball, forming a strong, solid connection and ensuring absolute security when you're towing.


B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch Operation

When you're done towing, remove the hitch ball by simply pulling the handle out as far as it will go and then rotating it clockwise until it unlatches. Remove the ball, flip it upside down, and drop it back into the ball hole of the hitch. Then reengage the latch to secure the stowed ball in place.


Unlike typical gooseneck balls - which have round bases - the Turnoverball hitch ball is designed with a square base. This makes latching the ball in the hitch easier because the base won't rotate inside of the hitch like a round base might, so lining the pin up is a snap. The base of the ball also fits tightly within the ball hole during storage. Because only the corners of the base contact the sides of the socket, any dirt or grime that gets into the hitch will fall through the socket, thus helping to prevent any buildup that could cause the ball to seize up in the hitch.


Simple, Custom Installation

This hitch is custom designed for your vehicle. The included mounting brackets bolt to existing holes in your truck's frame. While some modification is required - you will need to cut a 4" diameter hole in your bed for the hitch ball and drill holes for the built-in safety chain loops - there is no need to weld onto or to drill into your frame.


Once you have the hitch brackets and body installed, set up the operating handle. This handle is designed to be accessed from the rear driver's-side wheel well. On the end of the handle is the heavy-duty steel pin that secures the hitch ball.


B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch Accessories

B&W makes it easy to tow just about anything. With the many adapters and accessories available, the Turnoverball can be made to work with almost any gooseneck trailer. Hitch balls are available that have a built-in rise, an offset, and even a different connection type. Add on the Companion fifth-wheel hitch - which attaches directly to the Turnoverball with no other parts required - and you can tow your fifth-wheel trailer. Even a truck bed utility rack is available so that you can easily haul ladders and lumber with the load placed on the hitch (and therefore your truck's frame) instead of your bed rails.

Video Transcript for B and W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 GMC Sierra 2500

Today on our 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 Model we're going to be doing an installation on a B&W Turnover Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, with the Custom Installation Kit. The part number is BWGNRK1012. Our gooseneck hitch can easily be converted for use with a fifth wheel as well simply by using the B&W companion, part number BWRVK3500. As you can see the B&W's gooseneck style hitch is going to allow us full access into our bed. It's an under bed mount set up so we don't have to worry about having all the rails and the bars up here interfering with our bed. Flush mount design, as you can see, so a large hole cut out here in the bed allows that to pass up through nicely. The same goes for your safety chain connections here on both sides.

The springs are really going to help to eliminate or at least reduce any kind of noises or vibrations we might have. We'll pull out on our black handle and rotate it. As you can see that's going to keep it in that pulled position or in that outward position. That's going to allow us to lift the ball itself, flip this right over, slide it into position, lock it with our lever. Just rotating that handle slightly it's going to allow it to fall back in. We can hook it up to any 2-5/16" gooseneck style trailer.

When it's time to put it away for the evening or when we're done hauling our trailer, we'll simply just flip that around. I'll operate the slide handle for you now so you can see how that pin will pass through. As you can see whether it's in the up or down position, our ball mount will be fully secure. Now that we've gone over a few of the features let's get this thing installed on our truck. Let's start by lowering our spare tire down here in the rear. Getting this out of the way is going to make access into the area we want to work a lot easier.

We're now going to clear out just a little bit of room here. This is going to allow the cross rails of our hitch to go into place. The plastic fender liner here is covering it. Some of these vehicles will have it, some won't. In our case we're just going to take out a small square for now to see if that'll give us the room we need.

If not, we may need to take out a little bit more later. We'll now make our little V notch here on the side. We want a 2" base, so we'll go 2" here, and we're going to go up about 3/4". That usually puts us right underneath that rail that comes out. If you have some kind of cutting tool, a rotary cutting tool of some type, that can be really good to use. Also just some aviation or tin style snips can work as well. We just want to kind of trim that out of there. Now we can modify the exhaust heat shield here on the bottom side. Between the two rails we want to trim off that heat shield portion that's blocking the bottom side of the bed. Then we'll also cut it out up here at the front just behind the other rail that runs across. We'll just pull this down and out and we can trim up any of the rough edges that we've got there. Now it's time to put a hole here in the back of the truck. This is going to be the 4" hole they tell you to drill out, just referring to your instruction manual. This is going to tell you exactly where you're going to want to put it. We're going to measure from the very back lip of the tailgate forward to get that measurement. Then we measure from the outside into our middle. We want to make sure we've got the same distance on both sides. We've got our mark made there where we want our hole to go so now we'll bring in our hole saw and run our hole on through. Now we'll take the L shaped cross member, we're going to slide it in the wedge that we cut out and just slide this on across where we can get to it from the bottom of the car and place it up onto our frame rails. We just want to kind of bring this forward and position it in front of our 4" hole here. Now we're going to come to the second hole from the driver side on our front cross bar here. We're going to put in one of the 1/2" by 1-1/2" bolts. There's a small O ring that's been provided. This O ring is going to go over that and hold it in place. Now we'll bring our center section up and we're going to do what they call stages. We're just going to allow it to sit up there. You'll see that the hole is slightly offset to on side. That offset should be toward the back. Right now at that stage let's grab our rear cross brace. We're just going to slide this in behind our center section there and just like the other one we'll go underneath and re-position it. This one you'll notice the holes are slightly offset. We want that offset or we want the holes to be nearer the bottom than the are the top. Then this will be rotated into position as you see there. We want the holes to be closer to the bottom and this should be the rear most cross member or cross brace. We're just going to align the raised center section with the hole that we had cut out. With that in line we're now bringing the front cross member back. We're going to align up our holes and then we'll place one of the 1/2" by 1-1/2" bolts through, that'll help us hold that position slightly. On those we're going to have a lock washer and a nut to hold them in place. These fasteners we just need to get these hand tight. For the rear we're going to take one of the 1/2" by 2" bolts, place a flat washer and a lock washer on that. That's going to go from the inside of our center section rearward and we'll lift it up so we can get it threaded into our rear cross brace. Then we'll repeat that for the other four holes in our rear cross brace here. Now we've got our bolt guides here. Our bolt guides we're going to put our 5/8" bolts through. Kind of thread on there like a nut. It's designed to be a tight fit. A lot of times you need to use a ratchet or something to get them in there. We should have this so it'll be all the way down flush with the top of the guide. On our longer one you can see here the bend comes down and we've put the bolt down through. The tabs are sticking up through that side. On our shorter one that we're going to use, the bend is the opposite. So we'd be putting the bolt in the top. After that, it's the exact same process. We'll now take our bolt with the guide. We're going to place it through the oblong hole here. You can see your jounces right there. Just come up from there. That goes in and we rotate it around just like that. That's where we're going to have access to that bolt. Now let's go over to the passenger side. We can do that exact same thing. On the inside we'll come in and kind of follow that same method. Then just work our handle so it'll get us to the right location here. Then we can come over to our passenger side and repeat that same thing. To allow for easier access what we're going to do is take off this piece of inner fender liner here. We didn't want to take off more than we had to, but now that we've got our cross members in place it's clear that this is going to offer some interference. You'll see here with that small section out of the way we're going to be able to get to the end of each of our cross braces there to easily attach our hardware. We'll bring our side plate up. As we do we want to be careful not to push our bolts back through. Now let's use a washer, a locking washer and a nut on each one of those. Just like all of our other hardware we're just going to leave these hand tight for now. Let's go over to the other side and repeat that same process. Now for connecting the side plates to our cross members we're going to bring another 1/2" by 1-1/2" bolt. We're going to bolt through our cross member and our side plate, then we'll have a washer, locking washer, and a nut that'll be threaded on that one. For the rear we're just going to take a bolt that we've got a flat washer and a locking washer on, place that through and thread it into that rear cross bar. Then we'll head over to the other side of the truck and we can do that exact same thing. Now we'll go through and tighten down the bolts that are holding our center section to our cross members. Now we'll make sure we've got our gooseneck centered. We're going to take a measurement from the front edge of that, in this case I'm going right up to the hat 00:12:22 channel that runs across and we want to check this in a couple different spots to make sure we've got the same measurement. If we don't then we'll make a little bit of an adjustment to it, move it forward and back to make sure everything is nice and even. Now we'll come to our side plates. We're going to tighten up our 5/8" hardware first. Then we'll move from there right into tightening up our 1/2" hardware. Now let's head over to the passenger side and do the same thing. We're now going to torque down all of our hardware. The torque specifications will be listed in your instruction. You want to be sure to follow the same sequence that we did when we initially tightened our bolts down. We'll start here in the inside, doing our center section. Now we'll move right to our 5/8" hardware here on our side plates. Then we'll go right to our 1/2" hardware. Now let's go to the passenger side and repeat that process. Now we'll get our release handle installed. We'll bring our release handle in through and then work it through the half moon that we have inside here on the center part of our hitch. Then we'll connect it using the included hardware, which would be a carriage bolt. Then you see on the other side it gets a little flange nut. Now we'll tighten this nut down and we want to be careful that we don't over tighten it. We've now got the four holes located on the underside. We're going to drill these out using a 1/2" drill bit. That'll allow us to pass our U bolts down through for our safety chains. Because we're using such tight clearances here on the bottom, we're going to use a small drill bit to drill a pilot hole up through that'll allow us to bring our 1/2" bit back down. We'll now take our U bolts and we'll pass these right down through our holes we just drilled out. On each half of the U bolt that sticks down we're going to place a spring on. Then we'll get one of the nuts started for each of those locations. Now we'll tighten those nuts down so that our U bolt is sitting flush with the bottom. Now let's get our spare tire put back into place. That'll complete today's installation of the B&W Turnover Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part number BWGNRK1012. .

I had the drop in hitch installed recently and hooked up to my gooseneck cattle trailer and pulled it about 300 miles. I am thankful to say that everything worked wonderfully well. I experienced no problems, and I am very satisfied with this product. 577102

I purchased my hitch and received it within 3 days. Fast and easy delivery service. I just wish the UPS guy would've at least placed it inside my gate. etrailer has great staff, friendly yet profesional. All of my questions we're answered promptly. The hitch looks great on my truck. I installed it myself in roughly 2 hours. The nice B&W grey color definitely pop's from the black frame. I also have the 5th wheel companion and it looks beefy! Can't wait to tow my toy hauler this weekend. 512541

I needed a gooseneck hitch to haul cattle to market in my new 26ft. stock trailer. I installed the Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch in my 2012 Silverado 2500HD in a little over 3hrs by myself laying flat on the ground. If I'd had a lift, it would have been much easier. That installation instructions were dead on! Great looking hitch and adds value to my truck. 280892

Installed the B&W gooseneck turnover ball hitch in my 2015 Chevy 2500HD double cab. I installed it myself & it went smoothly. I did not have a lift which made the task even more interesting. The B&W hitch has performed well and I would buy again. I use the B&W in combination with a BlueOx SuperRide 5th wheel hitch. The combination has been excellent. Towing has been smooth with no bucking on noise from the hitch. 727378

Great hitch. Fast delivery. On a scale of 1-5 for difficult install it is a 4. Cousin and I took about 41/2 hours. We jacked up rear of truck put jack stands under. I think hardest part was torque wrench. Not much room under truck. Would highly recommend this hitch to anyone who needs one. 698655

Between the videos and the instructions it was very easy to follow. If you’re like me and don’t want to cut your fender liners I simply removed the front bed bolts and jacked one side up to slide in the mounting rails. The only fender I had to cut was the drivers side to allow for the latch pin lever. I really like just how “flush” the hitch really is once you turn over the ball. Overall very impressed with the hitch so far and have already recommended the hitch to other family members and friends. 697849

Ordered this Wednesday morning and received it Saturday. The installation video was very helpful. Wasn't a fan of cutting the lip of my truck bed so removed the bolts on the right hand side and loosened the bolts on the left hand side so it could be raised high enough to slide in the brackets that hold the hitch in place. I think it took and extra 15 mins to do it this way. I would highly recommend etrailer.com for any towing needs. Great site with lots of videos for the DIY'er! 677796

Product is very well made and has a nice clean installed look. Only thing I did different from the directions was instead of cutting a notch in the bed to install the X-members, I unbolted one side of my bed and raised it up and blocked it up. Overall good product and straight forward to install. Excited to see how it holds up. 657505

I ordered a bwgnrk1012 turnover ball under bed gooseneck hitch. Which arrived a day before they said it would. I was pressed for time for a Florida trip I needed to install it asap. It was easy. I did it myself Two people would be better, I used a jig saw for the 4" hole, a come along with two 2x4s and a bolt to lift the ball receiver member through the 4" hole and hold it in place . A couple of things to note , my notch on the passenger side for the two rails ended up being 3" instead of 2". And I would chase the threaded holes inThe 1"x2" bar. It was a pain to do it under the truck other than that everything went great It's a great product , with good instructions. 619575

Structure and build is fine but finish is terrible. Spending hundreds of dollars on something you expect a quality product finished properly. The paint job is far from professional. Paint was peeling of terribly as soon as I unpacked it. Had to spend extra to get powder coated the right way. Not happy. Will not recommend this product do to poor finish quality and the fact that they just threw everything in box to clatter together. Really? How hard is it to safely package these items? 544703

Pretty strait forward install. Recommend two people if you don't have the hoist to keep the center section positioned. It is still possible as I installed myself (5 hours with lots of cussing), just takes a little longer and have to manipulate the sections while trying to get the bolts in. The video was an excellent reference, the instruction manual is sometimes vague. Overall great product and excellent service from etrailer. 440611

This is an excellent product! Let's start from the beginning. The ordering was easy and hassle-free. They shipped my order the next day and it arrived as promised. The only issue I had was when I opened the box. It comes in two separate boxes due to weight. The package that contains all the hardware had a slight tear. After inspection I realized one lock washer had fallen out and it wasn't in the box. No worries there, I simply picked up another at the hardware store. Installation was as difficult as expected. You're working under a truck with about 130lbs of steel... it's not going to be real easy but it's not super difficult either (use your head and read the instructions). The instructions are easy to read and understand. I recommend you lay everything out on the ground exactly as it is assembled. That way you can get a clear picture as to how everything will go together when you are under the vehicle trying to hold a 50lb piece of steel above your head. Bottom line though... this system was designed and put together excellently. If you follow the instructions it will install perfectly with no gaps or unsightly holes. This is my first in-bed trailer hitch system. I wasn't sure if I should go with just a goose neck or fifth wheel. This system allows for both. My only regret is that I didn't take pictures as I went along. It truly does go in as easily as they say. 397466

I got this product for a 2013 chevy 2500hd short bed. I converted my 5th wheel 37ft weekend warrior to gooseneck and this product worked to perfection! Installation was very easy, the instructions that come with this are clear and easy to follow. Took about 2 hours from start to finish with 2 people. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a high quality gooseneck hitch!! Good job B&W! and you cant beat the prices from etrailer with their fast free shipping! I will only use etrailer for any of my hauling or trailer needs!! 387017

The product is excellent. Everything went together perfectly and I am very pleased. The installation was a little tough when you can only lift the rear end 10" and do it by your self (and be 67 years old). But I succeeded! 355619

Laura The product I had purchased (turnoverball underbed hitch) works great. The fit is perfect. The only issues I have are as follows 1. E-Trailer should offer the cover that goes over the ball once it is stored. With all the weather we have been having and debri that usually ends up left in the bed of my truck. 2. It's a real pain trying to retrieve the ball and turn it over. Performance wise. I have no issues. Great product well engineered. 354958

Watch the video and the intsallation will go well. Toughest part is fighting the inner fender. I rigged a boat winch supported by a 2x4 to hoist the center section in place to bolt to the cross rails. This made it easy with help to crank it up into place and hold it while it was bolted to the rails. Total intallation came out looking perfect. Every part fit together perfectly. 334162

I have not yet had the hitch installed, but it should be by late Monday. I will write a follow up review once I am able to use it. Family members and friends recommended the B&W Rollover hitch to me and they had great things to say about it. I do want to comment on the service that sales person provided. He was very knowledgeable about the product and did offer a lot of good information about the hitch, and the installation of it. I did ask several questions about the installation process and he was very patient and provided the necessary answers. Excellent delivery time! Got it ahead of schedule. Great job! I will be calling on you again. John S. 323776

  • Installation of B&W Turn Over Ball Gooseneck BWGNRK1012 in 2011 Silverado
  • The B&W Turn Over Ball Gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1012 that you referenced fits the 2011 Silverado 2500 and 3500, both long beds and 6-1/2-foot beds. Of course it also fits the equivalent Sierras. The linked instructions on page 2 give you the hitch positioning for each bed length. The hitch ball hole position is referenced to the rear edge of bed.

  • When installing the Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose hitch # 9465-56, the hitch ball hole location is 45-3/8 inches from the rear of the truck bed and is centered between the wheel wells. For the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck # BWGNRK1012, the hitch ball hole is 49-1/2 inches from the back of the truck bed. If you are installing the Curt Gooseneck # C607-604, the distance is 49-inches from the cab of the truck to the center of the hitch ball hole. All three of the mentioned gooseneck...

  • Will a B&W Gooseneck Hitch from a 2012 Chevy Silverado Fit a 2017 Silverado 2500/3500
  • It looks like the 2012 Chevy Silverado 2500/3500 use B&W hitch # BWGNRK1012. The installation kit does not fit the 2017 Silverado though. For your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500/3500 you would need # BWGNRK1016 for the full kit if you don't want to reuse the head. If you just want to reuse the head you can. The same head is used for both trucks. The only thing you would need is the installation kit for the 2017 Silverado 2500/3500 which is # BWGNRM1016.

  • Available Adapter to Tow 5th Wheel with Gooseneck Hitch in 2015 GMC Sierra 2500, 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • There are some adapters that will allow you to tow your 5th wheel trailer with your gooseneck hitch while still leaving your toolbox installed on your truck, but unfortunately there are not any 5th wheel hitches that will fit in the 10 space between the gooseneck ball hole and the toolbox on your truck. To keep the toolbox installed while towing, you will want to use an adapter like the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-To-Gooseneck Adapter with Offset # CAB-C5GX1216. This adapter will...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Setup for 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • I may be biased...but I'd say ordering your fifth wheel setup from etrailer.com would definitely be the best place. The best setup available for your truck would be the B and W Companion hitches as they are the best made and performing hitches availalble. For that you'd need the slider kit part # BWRVK3400 if you have a short bed so that you have turning clearance or if you have a long bed you'd want the fixed hitch version part # BWRVK3500 since you wouldn't need the slider's additional...

  • Recommendation for Towing Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer with 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • If you need to tow a fifth wheel and a gooseneck hitch trailer with your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD and don't have any hitches installed yet your best option is the B and W Turnoverball setup part # BWGNRK1012 which is a confirmed fit for your truck. What's great about this hitch is that it's a gooseneck hitch when needed and then if you need to install a fifth wheel hitch all you need is the Companion hitch part # BWRVK3400 and you have a fifth wheel hitch to tow your trailer with.

  • Comparing B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitches BWGNRK1012 and BWGNRK1012-5W
  • There is no difference. They are the same part. The only reason we show both of them is because # BWGNRK1012-5W shows up when you go through the fit guide for a specific year, make, and model truck. The shipping weight will be fixed to reflect the correct amount which is actually 113.30 pounds.

  • B and W Turnover Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2016 GMC Sierra 3500
  • For a B and W Turnover Gooseneck hitch confirmed to fit your 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 you would want the part # BWGNRK1016. The part # BWGNRK1012 that you referenced is for the previous years of the Sierra so it would not fit your truck. If you ever needed to tow a fifth wheel trailer you could just go with the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3500 as this will fit right into the hitch.

The B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # BWGNRK1012, that you referenced will work well with your truck and has an underbed design which will give you full use of your truck bed when you are not towing. This hitch will fit trucks with single or dual rear wheels. The other nice feature of the B&W hitch is that you can add the Companion 5th Wheel Hitch, # BWRVK3500, without making any changes if...

This is due to the fact that the Curt ball mounts for gooseneck hitches are circular in shape whereas the ball mounts for B&W gooseneck hitches are square.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch & Offset Ball for 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 with 6-1/2-Foot Bed
  • For your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 with 6-1/2-foot bed I recommend the USA-made option from B&W, gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1012. I like this hitch for its high 7500-lb tongue weight (TW) and limited lifetime warranty. This B&W is about as good as it gets. No frame drilling is required to install the brackets; please refer to the linked install video for more. With it you can use their 4-inch offset ball # BWGNXA4085. If you need a wiring harness you can use part # 41157 from Hopkins.

  • Gooseneck Hitch for a Ford F450 Flatbed Truck
  • 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 Ford F-450 flatbed 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.

  • Towing Capacity of 2014 GMC 2500 for Gooseneck Trailer
  • Any vehicle's towing capacity is determined by the auto maker based on the specific equipment in it. Tow rating is determined by not just engine size, but also by the transmission, rear axle ratio, bed length and cab style. The surest way to know a vehicle's towing capacity is to find the driver's door jamb sticker. Find the GCWR (gross combined weight rating) and from this subtract the GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating). The difference is the maximum trailer weight that can be towed....

  • Does the Heat Shield of 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 Have To Remove to Install B and W Gooseneck Hitch
  • In step 2 of the instructions for the B and W Turnover Gooseneck Hitch part # BWGNRK1012 that you referenced you will end up removing the heat shield. Some of our customers have reported back saying that they did not have to remove it but others said they went ahead and removed it and left if off. The hitch will more or less act as a heat shield as well. I attached a link to an install video for this hitch in a 2015 Chevy Silverado just like yours for you to check out as well.

For example, with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck # BWGNRK1012, the first item shown on the linked page of gooseneck hitch fits for your truck, the ball hole should be 49-1/2-inches from the rear edge of the truck bed in a long bed like yours.
