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.


Galvanic Corrosion Limiting Tape

Note: Because the body of your truck is constructed of aluminum, there is an increased risk of galvanic corrosion when a different metal, such as steel, contacts the truck body. To help prevent this corrosion, strips of polypropylene tape are included to provide a barrier between the steel of the hitch and the aluminum of the truck. These strips are to be applied to the center section of the gooseneck hitch as shown above.


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 - BWGNRK1115 Review

Today we're going to review Part Number BWGNRK1115 this is the B&W Turnover Ball Under-bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the custom installation kit and a 30,000 pound weight capacity. Now this part is a custom fit part number, it is designed to fit the Ford F150 6 and 1/2 foot and 8 foot beds starting in 2015. For demonstration purposes we have installed the installation kit to the gooseneck hitch, to give you an idea of what this would look like all put together. Now this is a heavy duty under-bed hitch which will let you tow your gooseneck trailer. Then you can get complete truck bed access when you're not towing, by just turning the ball over dropping it into place. Turning it and it will lock it into place then you'll have full truck bed access when you're not towing your gooseneck trailer. Now when you lock it into place actually there's a 5/8 inch diameter spring loaded steel locking pin on the end of this handle that goes all the way through the ball to secure it into place.

The access handle right here is accessible on your rear driver's side wheel well. It is locked now, to unlock it just pull this, twist it and you can see up on the top of the head here there's a slot with a notch there. You just turn this into the notch and it will hold it in the open position and you can take your ball out, drop it into place, release it and it will put that pin all the way across and lock the ball into place. This is a single piece machine ball socket, provides rugged durability. When I pull it out you can see it has the nice square ball base, which prevents the ball from turning in the hitch during hook up. If you'll notice the corners them are beveled.

The reason they do that is so when you put them in to use it or to store it, it leaves an opening in the corners to keep any dirt or grime from building up and causing a hard fit of the ball. Now you can use specially designed accessories with this gooseneck hitch, we do sell them separately on our website by B&W. They do a B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter and basically what that allows you to do is you can take the gooseneck ball out and this companion adapter will allow you to drop, it has a post that you drop into place. It will allow you to tow with a 5th wheel, it's a 5th wheel hitch that'll drop into here, secure into place. They also make a ladder rack that same way, it has a post on it that will drop into here and you'll be able to use it as a ladder rack. It leaves your truck bed side rails free.

Now right here it has the spring loaded safety chain hook ups, they're built in, so you can put your safety chains to that. This is a very simple installation, it comes with this custom mounting kit. There's no welding required, and the truck bed does not have to be removed. The only thing you would have to do is you have to cut a 4 inch diameter hole here into the truck bed to be able to access this opening. It's all a powder coated steel which is very sturdy and corrosion resistant. It is made in the USA, a few specs on this, the gross towing weight capacity is 30,000 pounds.

Vertical load limit 7,500 pounds and the diameter of the gooseneck ball is your standard 2 and 5/16 diameter. It does come with a limited lifetime warranty. Again, if you're going to tow your gooseneck just drop your ball into position, release your handle, the pin will slide in and lock it into place, you're ready to tow. When you don't need to tow anymore and you want to have full truck bed access, just pull out on this, turn it until that notch locks into open position. Turn it over there's a little handle here that you can hold onto when you drop it down. Just like that, release it and it locks it into the stowed position. That should do it for the review on Part Number BWGNRK1115, the B&W Turnover Ball Under-bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the custom installation kit and a 30,000 pound weight capacity. .

Order arrived very quickly. Installed within a couple of hours with a helper. Fits perfectly. Used it for pulling a 16 ft. gooseneck cattle trailer. Like the fact that it stays out of the way when not using it. Provides good weight distribution, F150 easily handled load. 417443

Installed on 2016 F150. The unit went in as smooth as expected and is easy to use. I tow a 10k 5th wheel and couldn't be happier. The turn over ball allows us to have full use of the bed when we arrive at the campsite. I chose the gooseneck option for my 5th wheel because it eliminated the 125# plus that a regular 5th wheel hitch would use. 429017

I bought this for my new 2017 F150. I would not buy it again. First off they say in the instructions to drill a 4" hole at 42 5/8" from the back of the bed. Both measurements are wrong. If you use a 4" hole saw which I did the hitch will not fit in the hole. I had to open it up after it was drilled. I ended up with a 4 1/4" hole. I drilled at 42 5/8" as per the instructions. That measurement wouldn't let the hitch be mounted in the center of the hole. It was tight against the back of the hole. Which would of put aluminum directly in contact with steel To get it to fit right I ended up shifting the centerline of the hole 3/16" towards the back of the truck and making an 1/8" shim to push the center section forward to get the hitch centered in the hole. 42 5/16" would have been a better centerline for the hole. Also the bolts for the side mounts are longer then they need to be. They could at least be fully threaded to be able to use the retaining clips as intended. I called B&W about my issues. It's was basically like talking to a brick wall. They acted like I did something wrong. I worked in a machine shop for years working with tolerances down to .0001". I'm pretty sure I can read a tape. Also the paint finish on the hitch is horrible. It flakes of in long strips. If I had to do it again I would look at a different hitch. Possibly a Curt or something else which is less expensive. 397812

The hitch arrived quickly after placing the order. Order status was kept up to date information was accurate When the hitch arrived - I read the instructions and the install seemed very straight forward. 3.5 hrs later. The hitch was installed along with a wire harness. The instructions were accurate and all the parts fit as expected. Very impressed with the quality of the hitch and the service provided by e-trailer 545867

3 stars... Well the install was a bear!! There is a bolt no one tells you about right behind the locking pin you can not get to with a torque wrench. Also taking off the rear tires will make it easier to torque the outside plates to the frame. Other then that the directions were spot on and it looks great. Im just using this set up to use the B&W Companion sliding 5th wheel hitch. 672593

The hitch works great and installing the hitch wasn't bad at all even for just one person. The instructions were clear and the pictures they included were helpful. The only thing I had a problem with was one of the boxes were damaged and one of the small brackets were slightly bent, but I didn't need it anyways b/c it was for the diesel models and mine is a gas. I don't blame etrailer or B&W for that. Maybe B&W could use heavier boxes. All in all I had a good experience. etrailer.com was easy and great to buy from and B&W has a great product. 454700

So far I have been very happy with the B&W gooseneck ball hitch. I haven’t put a whole lot of milesuse on it but every time I use it with my gooseneck it preforms like it should. If I have any other needs trailer related I plan on giving your website a look first. Thanks and happy holidays!

B&W and Etrailer are a great combo. I just ordered this hitch after having a similar one in my 06 Ram. I really like the hitch. I also like that the companion fifth wheel and other B&W accessories can be used on both trucks. I just installed last night and by myself it took about 5 hours. Watch the video and read the instructions. Take your time and do the prep work to get ready for install. I didn’t remove the rear muffler portion and still had plenty of room. I did have a ceiling lift that helps center and lift the hitch portion through the hole. If you don’t have that make sure you have help. Fit as expected with minimal issue. I did not trim the wheel well plastic but may so the handle isn’t hidden. I installed hitch then replaced plastic bedliner and drilled hole through hitch opening from underneath. I also drilled the u-bolt holes with bedliner in and they fit perfectly between the rises. 498168

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


This was my Second Hitch to order from etrailer. The first was on my 2012 Ford Transit Connect. This time was on my newly purchased 2008 Ford F250 Super Duty Diesel truck. It did not have the Goosneck Hitch and I have Horses and use a Trailer to transport them. Instead of paying Much More to have the hitch put in, I elected to do it myself. I looked at the Video and read the instructions Twice before starting. Since I am almost 75, I need the help of my son. While he was at work, I did most of the work myself. When he got off work, we finished the job. I will continue to purchase from etrailer. The items fit Perfectly and instructions are Great. In the picture, is Sophie, my dog which watched as we worked. 405070

Great product and instructions were easy to follow. Prompt shipping and hitch delivered in secure boxes with no issues. Clean install in my Ford F-350 dually. It took about 6 hours (taking my time) doing it myself with a floor jack and the necessary tools. Could be done a lot faster with two people. Also, just cut the notch (you'll see what I'm talking about in the instructions), but not according to the measurements given. Use the cross member as a cutting guide. It will make the install a lot easier. etrailer is awesome! 403541

I purchased the B & W turnover ball hitch from E Trailer for my 2006 Ford F250 SuperDuty. Jan in customer service was very helpful. I received the hitch within 2 days. My wife and I installed it according to the instructions and installation video on their website. E trailer really did their homework on the installation of their hitches. We got the hitch insatlled with minimal problems. All you have to do is follow the video/instuctions. I am very pleased with the hitch and would recommend ETrailer and the B&W hitch to anyone who tows. I tow a 5th wheel with a Ranch Hitch Gooseneck adapter. Now I dont have to deal with the 5th wheel hitch in the bed of my truck. I will continue to purchase other towing accessories from ETrailer. A wonderful experience. 163592

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

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

It took me a while to get this hitch installed because there were after market airbag suspension supports that were in the way. After I removed them the installation went a bit smoother. The B&W instructions were so light, I was glad to had the opportunity to view the etrailer.com resource video and other helpful informaiton in determining the rear airbag support could be removed without causing a structural issue to the truck. So if you got these airbags install, know that they can be removed so you can take advantage of this high quality hitching system. I used impact wrenches to loosen the old and install the new bolts... made life a lot easier than with the standard wrenches, so worth the price i invested in the right tools for the job. 405136

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


The hitch and controller was installed on a 2002 Chevy 2500HD. It took roughly 15 min to install the Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller, plug it in and program it. As far as the B&W Turnover Ball Hitch, I cut the hole in the bed and cut the heat shield out the day before while I was waiting for the hitch to arrive. The next day my parts arrived, I laid out all the parts to make sure everything was there and then started the install. I didn't want to cut the 1"x1/2" notch out of my fender well to get the angle iron in so I spent about 15 min. trying to get it up on top the frame from underneath the truck. A waste of time. Do like the instructions say, cut the notch and slide it straight across the top of the frame. It will save time and aggravation. After getting both braces in place I ran a piece of rope down thru the hole and pulled the hitch plate up into place and tied it off. I installed all the bolts finger tight, put the side plates on and tightened everything up. It looks nice and I saved myself a $435.00 installation fee. With out a lift and without taking my rear tires off it took about 3 1/2 hrs. to install by myself. The only thing I want to say to B&W is don't place the heavy metal hitch parts on the booklet with the packets of Lithium Grease in it, they bust as the picture shows. Last but not least, thank you Sherry for all your help with my order and getting it to me quick in such short notice. I really appreciated it. 358380

How good is free shipping, our Order was placed about 8pm est on Thursday Jan 19th, and arrived Jan 25th before I returned from work at 4pm. Just sold the F-150 I installed the previous B&W fifth wheel hide a ball hitch in. Love this hitch set up, after arriving at a campground and unhooking the camper I have FULL use of the truck bed. Install of round two begins in the morning, directions are simple and easy to understand. George J from E-trailer has been keeping me updated with information about my delivery status and made himself available had I had any questions. Wife and I have been camping for about four years, on our second RV and now our third truck and have been totally satisfied ordering everything we needed from E-trailer over that time, (about 18-20 orders to date) adding to the great products E-trailer provides is the HOW TO DIY videos on many products. 335458

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

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


Great hitch and like it. Until I used the drop in fifth wheel plate by B&W (RVK3500). There is a bolt u have tighten up to secure the hitch down. When I tightened it to 60 foot pounds it bent the main pin in the hitch. After fighting the pin to release now the pin is bent. And i cant use the gooseneck ball. And I can't remove the pin to replace it unless I remove the hitch. So long story short the gooseneck plate is good and works great as a gooseneck. But don't buy it planning to use the fifth wheel plate. Won't buy that again. 491492


Comments

After speaking with one of our contacts in the Tech Services department at B and W and was told that really the only way the ball retention pin can get bent is if its not slid fully into place when that draw-down bolt is torqued down. Please call us if you have further questions.

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

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


This is a high quality, basically bolt in product that fits well and has all ample hardware. The video is priceless and must be watched since it answers many questions otherwise. Spare tire removal is basically mandatory but we did leave rear wheels on. Only a problem when torqueing the side frame bolts. Exhaust is problematic at least for the Duramax. We did loosen some rubber hangers and with 2 people, were able to pull down on the exhaust to slip the center section in. The answer to the drilling for passenger side safety chain hooks is correct. Due to the exhaust pipe, you either punch a small drill hole at an angle from the bottom and enlarge it from the top or measure from the top only (less accurate). We drilled from bottom and enlarged it, which was perfect. Drilling a 4" hole in the bed of a brand new truck is scariest part! Measure twice, cut once, be accurate and with a spray in bed liner, its almost the exact same rear measurement (mine was tight getting the center section through the bed after allowing for the spray in product about 1/8"). Otherwise drill a 4 1/8" or 4 1/4" hole. On GM, the center (width about 25 1/2") is centered on the middle bed high slot, not the lower one. Also, shipping, emails, communications etc. were all outstanding. 330727

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


I installed this yesterday, along with the Companion 5th Wheel Hitch. Very good instructions, well written, great illustrations. Everything fit perfectly, no struggles with alignment. Very good hardware. Looks to be very sturdily built, the welds looks great. One thing to look out for - on my 2016 Chev 3500 anyway, the exhaust is in the way of drilling the passenger side retractable chain hook holes. You will need an angle drill or drill with a flexible extension cable. Or get your steel rule out and do some serious measuring like I did and drill the holes from the top down. I drilled the accessible driver's side, then transposed those measurements to the passenger side and drilled from the top using a small drill. After hitting the hole, I used progressively larger drills until I found the edge of the 1/2" hole in the center plate, then hogged out the hole the rest of the way with a Dremel grinder. Not a big deal, just had to get a little creative. Over all, excellent experience, from the purchase, the help from customer service (fantastic people!), fast delivery and easy install. Highly recommended! 293451

The customer service from eTrailer is top notch. I ordered my B&W 1067 the day before New Year's Eve. I had it within 5 days including the holiday and weekend. The B&W 1067 installed pretty easy. I did it myself in about 3 hours. I was lucky that my truck previously had a B&W 1067 installed so I didn't have to drill any holes. The only complaint that I have is I was short 2 bolts in the hardware bag. I didn't worry with calling eTrailer; I just went and bought new ones. 167940

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
