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 - Below the Bed - BWGNRK1104 Review

Today we are going to review part number BWGNRK1104. This is the B & W Turnover Ball under bed gooseneck tailor-hitch with custom installation kit, and has a 30,000 weight pound capacity. Now for demonstrations purposes I do have this under bed gooseneck-hitch attached to the custom installation brackets and this would be how it would look under your vehicle. It is designed to fit the Ford F150 trucks with either the six and a half foot or the eight foot bed beginning in 2004. Now I would recommend to get a correct fitment is to check the product page for this part number and at the bottom of the page it will list the actual yearsand models of the Ford F150 that this would fit on. Now this is a heavy duty under bed hitch, which will let you tow your gooseneck trailer. If you pull out the ball, it will give you complete truck bed access when you are not towing, and you could actually store the ball by just removing it and turning it upside down, drop it back into the hitch, and if you release this handle, twist it and release the pin. It would lock it into place.

It is not going to go anywhere. When you release this handle, right underneath here on the end of this handle is a 5/8 inch diameter spring loaded steel locking pin. When you pull and twist this to lock it open, you can pull this out. That 5/8 inch diameter locking pin is what would go through this and hold this ball secure into place. This handle right here was accessible at the rear driver side wheel well. If you'll notice this turnover ball is a single piece machine ball socket, provides rugged durability, has a square ball based to prevent the ball from turning into hitch during hook up.

When you drop it into the square opening in the gooseneck, you can see when your hooking up this will not turn. Also on this ball socket you can see the corners are actually chamfered and what that does is when you actually drop it in there that chamfer will leave an opening in each corner. What that will do is help prevent any dirt or grind from building up and causing any problems when you are trying to drop the ball in or remove it. Now this B & W under bed gooseneck hitch is specifically designed to use B & W accessories that we sell separately. That will make it easy to customize this hitch to fit your needs. One of the popular accessories that are sold with this is lots of times people might need a situation where they'll need to tow a fifth wheel trailer instead of a gooseneck trailer.Well B & W offers the companion fifth wheel hitch adapter, and what that will let you do is you could remove the ball and if you are needing to at some time tow a fifth wheel trailer, the companion fifth wheel hitch adapter will actually drop into your bed and give you a fifth wheel hitch, and it has a post in the middle that would insert down into this opening here.

Then youll turn your handle and lock it into place so youll actually be able to tow a fifth wheel because you'll have a fifth wheel hitch installed in your bed. That is an accessory that we do sell a lot of. It also, if you notice, has the spring loaded safety chain hook-ups, which are built in. You just hook your safety chains and let it go, and itll hold into place. This is a very simple installation. It comes with the included custom installation kit we show here and all the hardware that is needed.

There is no welding required and the truck bed does not have to be removed for this to be installed. It does require a four inch diameter hole to be cut in into the bed to have access to this opening, and for four holes for your spring loaded safety chain hook-ups to fit through. This is made of powder coated steel, which is sturdy and corrosion resistant. It is made in the USA. Again, this has a gross towing rate capacity of 30,000 pounds, has a vertical load limit or pin weight capacity of 7500 pounds. The ball size if you'll notice on this gooseneck turnover ball is two and 5/16 in diameter. It does come with a limited lifetime warranty. Again just to show you how this operates, I have the handle locked into open position, so if you are going to tow a gooseneck, you can drop the ball into place. Again twist it. That will release it. That pin will lock it, the ball, so there is no movement at all. You do your towing. When you are done and you want to remove the ball, just pull out on this handle, twist it. That locks it open, pull it out. If you want to store it, just go ahead and drop the ball into place. There is a little handle that you can grip it on to. Then lock it down, twist it. It locks into place and then you have full access to your truck bed. That should do it for the review on part number BWGNRK1104, the B & W turnover ball under bed gooseneck trailer-hitch with the custom installation kit. .

This is an excellent product. I have hauled my trailer loaded with my tractor multiple times. This hitch has performed flawless. I would certainly recommend. It is so much easier to haul a gooseneck trailer than a bumper hitch. The truck is much smoother and seems to handle the load much better. The thing I like most about the hitch is that you can hide the ball when you need to use your truck bed to haul other stuff. I would definitely purchase again. 408732

After a year of ownership I am still 100 satisfied. I will definately purchase again. When I get ready to trade my truck my new truck will get one of these hitches.

Was a fairly easy install in both a Ram Mega Cab 3500 and a Ford F-350. Cutting the hole in the bed was the most intimidating part, but as long as you measure just as the directions tell you, it turns out seamless. This is the only way to go if you need a gooseneck hitch! 598954

Quality product. Install is relatively easy with the exception of the safety chain holes. It's pretty impossible to maneuver a drill from underneath with the exhaust pipe in the way. Before installing, I made a plywood template of the 4 inch hole and safety chain holes. I was then able to drill the holes from the bed. It made it easy. 364613

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


The E-trailer videos and instuctions are great! I would suggest going ahead and removing the spare tire heat shield to make life easier with the torque wrench and when drilling the safety chain holes. The other item I am glad I caught before installing my hitch is the size of the hole they want you to use. B&W suggest a 3-1/2" hole and provide a plastic spacer to kinda hide the gap, I didn't like the idea of how this was going to look. I still installed the plastic spacer to support the bed around the hole, but I used a 3-1/4" hole saw and very lightly filed the edges for a much better fit. (Just make sure you hit your pilot hole location.) Test fit the hitch from the top side when checking the hole size. When installing, tighten the bolts to where the hitch just starts to make contact with the frame and then go top side and check hitch/hole alignment. Tap the hitch around with a mallet if you need to line it up with the hole. (Once the hitch was tight it didn't protrude through the bed anyways, so the hole could have been small and still worked). After removing the exhaust hanger, I used a ratchet strap to pull the tail pipe towards the spring to allow access to drill the passenger side safety hook holes. Another tip, I used a piece of rope tied to the ball retaining pin and fed it up through the hole in the bed. My 11 year old son was able to hold it in place this way while I started the bolts. I am happy with the end results and it looks great! The one thing I feel could be better is how far the ball retaining pin protrudes into the second side of the hitch housing, on mine I only have about 1/4" into the second side. I would feel better with 3/8"-1/2" engagement. 302603

Very easy to install, used a support strap to support the center section as suggested during installation. All bolts and related hardware fit great. Would recommend that you have a 1/2" drive 3/4" swivel socket and 1/2"extensions to make installation easier. 558609

Installation was done by myself in 3/4 of a day. It works as it should and is nice having a true hideaway, YOU DO NOT have to lift the bed for this installation. Doing so would be much more difficult. Follow the instructional videos and directions for install and you will have zero issues. 515509

Ordered this 1313 for my 2004 Dodge 3500, converting from 5th wheel to gooseneck, but the trailer I ordered had a "reservation deadline" i.e. don't pick it up by this date and we sell it someone else...) so I needed the hitch right away, it arrived two days before expected and now I am ahead of schedule. Your online installation pictures and videos are excellent and helped me make my buying decision. Why buy from [other online retailer] when you can get it all here at etrailer with great support and fast service? Not to mention etrailer has everything I needed to make this gooseneck conversion happen. And ... The MOST important thing is everything I bought today is made in the USA! 494692

This is the 3rd vehicle that I have put this hitch in and have 0 complaints. Installation is pretty straight forward and the instructions are easy to follow. If you take a bolt and clean the paint out of holes in the front cross member it will make your life a lot easier when you install. Great service from etrailer amd a great product. Only complaint is that the video for my truck, 2001 dodge 2500, on etrailers website is for a lot newer truck and did not apply to my vehicle at all. 317595

Installed this hitch in my 2017 Ram 2500 6.7 Cummins with absolutely no issues. Was very impressed with the detailed instructions. Used a friend of mine’s shop to do the work, it is definitely a two person job unless you have away to hold the hitch in place while you get the four bolts started. No specilized tools needed. I would highly recommend this to anyone that has a need for this type of hitch. Thank you George J and thank you etrailer for the grate product and price. 456487

As most B&W products are it fit perfect in my 16 Ram 2500 just wished I would have had an extra pair of hands cause it gets heavy installing by yourself. The template for the safety chain hooks was also a big plus not having to drill from the bottom of the truck. Will continue to buy from etrailer as I always get the fastest and cheapest around. 568806

I ordered the turnover ball hitch for a 07 dodge and a couple of items online and received it in a couple of days which was great . The b&w hitch is fairly easy to install and took 2.5 hrs or so .the only problem I had was the inside frame bolts hanging up in the frame . After removing the bolts that hold the rubber travel stops to the frame they slid right thru . 184161

Works great, easy installation. Only suggestion to the installation, on a 2016 2500HD, don't cut the notch in the side of the bed, simply loosen the bolts on the side of the bed to the frame, lift the bed a couple inches and slide the rails in as needed. The area the instructions refer to notching the bed isn't enough to allow the rails to slide in. Otherwise I would give 4 stars. 405641

The B&W turnover ball hitch is worth every penny! It's built solid and fits perfectly! The instructions are detailed and easy to follow! I've been using it in my Ram 1500 to haul a 3 horse slant load trailer and couldn't be happier! I absolutely love the relocation of the ball release to the inside of the bed! I have a crew cab, so I'm going to purchase a B&W extension so that I can have full clearance in tight turns and would suggest ordering that with your hitch. 334473

A year later, I am still completely satisfied! I havent had a single issue out of the hitch. Its still worth every penny.

I watched the video you guys had posted for my exact vehicle and that made the installation so much easier. Not that directions are hard to follow, but seeing it done live is the way to go. I'm one that likes to do things myself unless it's super cheap for an install, in this case everyone I talked to quoted around $350 to $450. My buddy and I did the install this past weekend and it turned out great. I hooked up to my gooseneck last night and im happy to say this hitch is awesome! Can't wait to show the wife how a gooseneck trailer rides so much better than a bumper pull, I'm trying to convince her to upgrade from a travel trailer to a fifth wheel, I think this will convince her. 356632

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.

I ordered this hitch a year ago, customer service called me to verify the model of my truck and installed my self on a 2007 GMC Sierra 2500hd classic the hitch by far has been the best hitch I’ve owned. I have a 32 foot gosseneck I pull and it’s easy to hook up and holds the weight. The springs on the safety chains still work like it’s new and the best part is if I just need the bed I can pull the pin and filp the ball and have the whole bed 546170

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

Easy to follow assembly instructions. Had a harder time getting the Ford/Reese gooseneck out. In my case it was a new 2017 F350 and I wanted to use my new companion fifth wheel hitch system. Product cost was more than the BW gooseneck I put on my F450. 420782

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


Had similar hitch in my Dodge 2500 for towing a 3-horse horse trailer. I liked it so when I decided to put a gooseneck hitch in my 2002 Ford F250 Super Duty 4WD I went with B&W again. I have used etrailer before; liked their support and could't find a better deal. Installation instructions were clear and an online video of installation on a 2003 Ford was much like mine. Gave me all the confidence I needed for a DIY install. I my case I didn't have a rack which would have made life easier. I had all the tools and did the job without needing to cut the bed ridge and without removing the rear tires or dropping the spare (couldn't find the $#@! jack handle that fits the mechanism). It took about 3 hours. With a rack and no tires it'd get done in under 2 hours for sure. 544034

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


The B&W Hitch and wiring harness I purchased worked great. Did the install myself which was a job but the instructions were good and the video may it fairly straightforward. The wireing harness had to be 100% wire-for-wire soldered into place becaue the original connector on my truck had been damaged and replaced. So the plug-and-play part not working was a surprise but we dealt with it. All-in-all a perfect fir for everything. I would highly recommend both items. Great quality and ease of use perfect. 400724

These units are easy to install and easy to use for both ball and 5th wheel towing. Putting it on a ‘97 F350, found all the holes aligned perfectly. Made it possible to switch vehicles to tow a 5’r using the companion hitch. 589836

  • Will the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Work With a B&W Gooseneck Hitch on a 2010 Ford F-150
  • The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57200 will work with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit part # BWGNRK1104 installed on your 2010 Ford F-150. The B&W hitch mounts to the outside of the frame rail and the Air Lift kit mounts to the bottom of the frame rail on you truck therefore, will work with one another. I have attached an installion video of the airbag kit installed on a 2013 Ford F-150 for you. In order to operate...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for 2008 Ford F-150 4x4 with 5.5 Foot Bed
  • For your 2008 Ford F-150 4x4 with 5.5 Foot Bed, I recommend the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1104 along with the offset ball # BWGNXA4085 to give you 4 more inches of clearance. These are made in the USA. Another great option is the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Custom Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs # 9465-37. This hitch has a 5 inch off-set ball # 19308 available for even more turning clearance. You may...

  • 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...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch to Install on Gooseneck Hitch Ball for 2011 Ford F-150
  • We do have a 5th wheel hitch that mounts directly to a gooseneck hitch ball! Check out the Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # DM8550045. This features a single wraparound jaw with a 3/4" steel locking bar for added security as well as a 21K weight rating. The Recon secures by attaching to the hitch ball directly and then pulling up on the hitch ball to keep it from spinning around during operation (see attached photo). Please note that if you have a short bed on...

  • Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Hitches with Offset to Tow a Trailer with a 2012 Ford F-150 w/5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • If you are towing both 5th wheel and gooseneck trailers then what I recommend for the gooseneck trailers is B&W gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1104. Then you could add the 4 inch offset ball, # BWGNXA4085, and the 10 inch Extend-A-Goose coupler, # BWTEXA4200. However, the pivot point of the trailer will still only be 4 inches back from its original position meaning that you will get 4 inches of true offset, not 14. If your gooseneck trailer is a V-nose then the 4 inches might be enough to...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Ford F150 Supercrew with 5.5 Ft Bed
  • I spoke with my contact at B&W and the Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Custom Installation Kit, # BWGNRK1104, is compatible with your 2014 Ford F-150 with the 5-1/2 ft bed. Please keep in mind that since you have the 5-1/2 ft bed, you will have limited turning clearance and it is recommended to use the 4 Inch Offset Ball, # BWGNXA4085, to increase your turning clearance. I have attached a couple of videos which may be helpful.

  • Are Air Bags Compatible with the B&W Gooseneck Hitch on a 2013 Ford F-150
  • I do have a suspension enhancement solution for your 2013 Ford F-150. Since you have the B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1104 installed i recommend the Air Lift Kit part # AL57200 which is compatible with your gooseneck hitch if you have a 4WD. If you have a 2WD I recommend using SuperSprings SumoSprings. These replace the factory bump stops on your F-150 and offer more stability as your payload (or pin weight) increases. One of the best things about this option is that there is absolutely...

  • Converting Firestone F2525 to Fit with B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch in 2012 Ford F-150
  • The Firestone Ride-Rite Springs # F2525 will not fit with a B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck # BWGNRK1104. All of the parts for the # F2542 kit are the same as the # F2525 except the frame brackets. For these use # F5739 for the driver's side and # F5738 for the passenger's side.

  • How Do I Measure To Find The Center of the Hole For My B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck On 2014 F-150?
  • It sounds like you are asking about the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs, # BWGNRK1104. The 45-1/8 inch measurement for the ball location is from the tailgate end edge of the bed, not including the tail gate itself, and make a mark at that measurement. Then with that mark, you will center the location between the wheel wells and make the mark. Where these marks intersect will be the center point for your 4 inch hole. I've attached...

  • B&W Gooseneck Hitch Compatible With Firestone Ride Rite Air Springs On 2013 Ford F-150 6-1/2 ft Bed

This gooseneck hitch will absolutely be compatible with your Firestone Ride Rite air springs and will give you a nice towing combination. There are two models of Firestone springs for your vehicle. The Ride-Rite # F2542 is only compatible with B&W 5th wheel hitches, but the # F2525 is compatible with all...

  • Where to Drill Hole in Truck Bed of 2010 Ford F-150 w 5-1/2 foot Bed for B&W Gooseneck Hitch Ball
  • The dimension you are looking for is 45-1/8 inches. Measure from the back end (tailgate end) of the truck bed floor by hooking a tape measure over the back of the truck box and mark the floor at the correct measurement. Next, center the location between the wheel wells. This will be the center point for the 4-inch hole.

  • Goosneck Hitch for a 2001 Ford F150 KingRanch SuperCrew with a 5.5 Bed
  • I spoke with my contact at B and W and she informed me that for your 2001 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot bed you would want the Gooseneck hitch part # BWGNRK1197. You also would want the 4 inch offset ball part # BWGNXA4085 to give you the best possible clearance for making sharp turns. I attached review videos for you to check out as well.

  • Fit of Firestone Ride Rite # F2542 Air Helper Springs and 5th Wheel Hitch on 2014 Ford F150
  • According to Firestone, the only fifth wheel set up they've tested on the 2014 Ford F150 for fit with the # F2542 is the B&W Companion, which consists of the # BWGNRK1104 install kit and the # BWRVK3400 sliding hitch. My Firestone rep tells me that there's a good chance that a Universal Install Kit like the Husky # HT31564-686 would fit, but since they haven't tested it, we can't guarantee fit.

  • Suspension Enhancement and Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Ford F150 Black Ops
  • The Black Ops 2014 Ford F-150 has a 6 inch suspension lift on it . So the setup I can recommend is the part # F2542 for a air bag kit. This kit can only be used with the B and W hitch part # BWGNRK1104 so that would be the hitch I would recommend. Since you have a 6 inch lift you would then need the 6 inch lift spacers # F2375.

  • B and W Gooseneck Hitch and Offset Adapter for 2014 Ford F-150 Short Bed
  • For your 2014 Ford F-150 we have the B and W Turnoverball Hitch part # BWGNRK1104 as a confirmed fit. If you have a short bed truck you will need the offset ball extension # BWGNXA4085 with this hitch. Or if you are referring to the offset gooseneck coupler part # BWTEXA4200 this also would be a great solution as it gives 10 inches of offset. Your trailer would need a outer tube that measures 4 inches in internal diameter for this to fit.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch and Offset Hitch Ball for 2004 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • The B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs # BWGNRK1104 is a confirmed fit for your 2004 Ford F-150. With the 5-1/2 foot bed, I do recommend using the 4" Offset Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitches # BWGNXA4085 to give you additional turning clearance for most trailers. If your trailer has a rounded front or an offset coupler like # BWTEXA4200 then that wouldn't be necessary, but in most cases with that short bed it is wise.
