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

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.

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

This is the second B&W goose neck hitch i have bought , had one in my old truck i used a lot over a period of ten years . Traded trucks and the B&W hitch was the first brand i thought about buying.

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


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

Product is constructed well! Pretty good instructions. I installed it in a couple hours. Would be easier to install with some help from a buddy. A little difficult holding the plate up while trying to bolt it up to the frame. I managed by using a ratchet strap attached to my shop rafters and down through the hole in the bed. Snugged the plate up and bolted in place. 659411

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 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

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch for a 2017 Ford F-350 DRW With the Factory Puck System
    Since your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty has the Dual Wheels, there is another solution for you to tow a gooseneck trailer. Since the factory puck system on your F-350 should already have a center puck for a gooseneck hitch ball all you will need to do is install the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit # RP30137. This hitch ball will pop in and pop out of your bed without having to reach inside your wheel-well to unlatch the locking mechanism like you would with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed...

  • Estimated Installation Time for B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1117
    I spoke with my contact at B&W regarding the Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1116 referenced in your question. She stated that the estimated/average installation time for this kit is around 2 hours. This heavy-duty hitch features a removable ball that can be stored upside down in the hitch when you aren't towing. It has a towing weight capacity of 30,000 pounds and is confirmed to fit the 2017-2018 Ford F-250/350 4WD without the factory...

  • Is a B&W Gooseneck Hitch Compatible with Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bags in a 2018 Ford F-250
    Firestone does not have a kit that will work with a B&W gooseneck trailer hitch in a 2018 Ford F-250. The upper brackets mount to the outside of the frame rails and would interfere with the gooseneck frame brackets. You could switch to Air Lift system # AL57399 for a 4x4 or # AL57391 for 2-wheel drive models because they mount to the bottoms of the frame rails.

  • Gooseneck Hitch with Ball that Stores in Hitch for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4x4
    The only Curt gooseneck hitch for your 2017 Ford F-250 is the OEM-style, part # C60700. It doesn't have a ball the flips and stores in the bed but the ball is removable. The only gooseneck for your truck with a ball that stores in the hitch is the B&W Turnoverball, part # BWGNRK1116. Your remove the ball and then turn it over and put it back in the hitch upside down to store it. The Curt you mentioned fits older Ford trucks and would not work for you.
