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 - BWGNRK1314 Review

Today we're going to review part number BWGNRK1314. This is the B and W Turnover Ball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the custom installation kit. This is a custom design fit. It is designed to fit the 2013 Dodge Ram 3500 series, either the short or the long bed. For demonstration purposes I do have the mounting brackets installed onto it, just to show you what it looks like installed underneath the bed of your truck. This heavy duty underbed hitch will let you tow your gooseneck trailer.

When you do remove the ball, you will have complete truck bed access when you're not towing. To store the ball you can just flip it. It's a turnover ball, so you can just flip it upside down, drop it into place, and then it'll still give you the full access to the truck bed, and your ball will be stored there. A handle right here, at the very end of this handle right here, there is a 5/8-inch diameter spring-loaded steel locking pin on the end of the handle. What that would do is it would end up, when you go and move your handle and lock this ball into place, that pin will go all the way through and secure this into place. When you drop this into place and you're going to tow with it, if you would just push forward, this handle actually would be at your rear driver's side wheel well.

You'd just access that, push forward, it'll release that pin and,as you can see, there's no removing of the ball. When you're done towing, and you just want to store the ball, if you pull out on this, pull it toward you, it would lock the handle open. Pull this out, turn the ball over, drop it into place for storage. Again, push forward, it would release the pin, and then it's locked into placefor storage. I do want to show you. This is a single piece machined ball socket that'll provide rugged durability.

It's a square ball base. As you can see it fits in the square turnover ball hole right here. The reason they do it square is, during hookup it'll keep this ball from turning in the hitch, being square like that. Also, if you'll look on this one piece here, the corners have actually been chamfered on all the corners. The reason they do that is so when you drop it into the turnover ball hole, it will leave openings on the corners here and let any dirt or grime fall through and keep from building up inside this connection, so your ball would not get stuck, trying to put it in or take it out.

The reason they chamfer that is it'll eliminate any of that from building up in there. Now this B and W Underbed Gooseneck Hitch is specifically designed to use B and W accessories that we sell separately. That'll make it easy to customize this hitch to fit your needs. One of the popular accessories to use is, if you end up running into a situation where, instead of towing a gooseneck traileryou might need to tow a 5th wheel trailer, you can take the ball out. They do sell a B and W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter. What that would allow you to do is you could put a 5th wheel hitch in the bed of your truck, and the very center is a post that would slide down into this opening. You would lock it with the pin into place. That way you would have a 5th wheel hitch adapter in the bed of your truck, and you can tow a 5th wheel trailer with it. It's a very nice accessory to have. If you notice it has the spring-loaded safety chain hookups right here that are built in. You just pull up, hook your safety chains on there, and pull it down. This is a simple installation, comes with the included installation kit shown here and all the hardware you need. There is no welding required, and the truck bed does not have to be removed to be installed. The only thing you would need to do is to drill a 3 1/2-inch diameter hole that you need to cut into the bed. On this one they actually do it a little different. A lot of their underbed hitches, they recommend the 4-inch diameter hole, but on the 2013 Dodge Rams, they found out on the 3500 series that in the cross member they already have a 3 1/2-inch hole drilled in the cross member. To take advantage of that, they decided on this application to use a 3 1/2-inch diameter hole. All you'll have to do is drill into the bed, and it would go through the hole that's already in the cross member. You would also have to drill 4 holes for your spring-loaded safety chain loops to fit through. This part is all powder-coated steel, which is sturdy and corrosion-resistant. It is made in the USA. This hitch does have a gross towing weight capacity of 30,000 pounds, has a vertical load limit, or pin weight capacity, of 7500 pounds. The ball size on this turnover ball is 2 5/16 diameter. That does come with a limited lifetime warranty. Again, just want to show you how you would install this. In other words, if you're ready to go tow your gooseneck trailer, just drop the ball into place. It has holes on all sides, so it doesn't matter which you put it in there. Drop it into place, reach your handle, push it forward. It would unlock it, the pin would drive into place and hold it into place, hold the turnover ball in place, and you'd be ready to go. When you're done towing, and you just need to store it, pull out on the handle, pull it back toward you. That would unlock the pin. You can drop it, turn it over. There's a little handle right here on this turnover ball. You can just use that handle to drop it into place. Push forward, it would unlock the pin, and you're locked into place ready to go. That should do it for the review on part number BWGNRK1314, the B and W Turnover Ball Underbed GooseneckTrailer Hitch with the custom installation kit. .

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

etrailer not only have a great procedure for online trading or online store, but also a great website....people on similar business can appreciate that as per other this feature can be transparent for them...it takes a great effort of team work to accomplish what this level of a,b,c,d online process to be done the way of etrailer has done. The products are simply well described, well packed, fast shipping. Whether is in stock or direct ship from manufacture, they make it look like is nothing..to me another great team effort and well though software architecture. As often we find instructions from manufacture to be some confusing, etrailer back it up which bunch of literature and videos to easy the process. Device recommendations: I strongly recommend that anyone purchasing this item to purchase also the harness kit, installation is plug and play and it looks part of another factory install. Cons: The part where every instruction or videos said "remove the clamp of the exhaust pipe to move exhaust pipe over" I found that is extremely difficult to accomplish that procedure on a 2014 3500 Ram with a Diesel Engine which it has the extra exhaust regeneration device or so call DPF...where fuel exhaust particles are burn, etc. that makes my vehicle exhaust to be solid almost one foot before reaching my rear end axle, meaning location where I need to be working installing my under bed gooseneck hitch. I did not removed any exhaust clamps and I simply got me a short 22 mm and tight my bolts with a wrench and a hammer. NOTE: ABS harness bracket it looks like is going to be rubbing against the hitch and it is extremely close, but it does not once bolts are tight you will have about 1/2 clearance (will not rub). Last comments, everything fits and everything goes where is says instructions, do not remove your bed of cut your truck in half..jejejejej Good luck, hope I help someone God Bless 174729

These are great hitches. This is fourth one I have bought and installed. My only complaint is that the ball in this one binds in the square hole in three out of four positions so it has to go in one way only. None of the others did this, they could be inserted in any of four positions. Quality control? Thus four stars. 438468

We've been running this B&W hitch for 18 months now and love it. The install is much easier on the 2013+ Rams compared to previous generations that needed the added cross-members. Just be prepared to spend a bit of time drilling through the factory cross-member for the safety chain anchors. 409490

We've traveled cross country, twice, and over 10,000 miles towing and this has been the best hitch we've had yet. The roads aren't smooth and the 16,000 lb of our fifth wheel has ridden smooth and without chucking/bumping. We have the steel version and very glad we decided to purchase this hitch instead of the typical saddle type 5th wheel hitch we've used before.

The B&W Turnover ball hitch kit for my 2014 Ram 3500 was very well engineered to fit precisely in my truck's frame and appeared to be well constructed in all respects. It was definitely no cake walk in the installation department and not recommended to be taken on by a non professional unless you are confident in your mechanical skills. I did it alone. The directions recommend the job be done by two. Good advise. The directions described a couple of things as "optional", like removing the spare tire and heat shield and removing exhaust donuts. Definitely NOT optional! But all in all it went well, turned out excellent. Great American made product, and has my seal of approval. 181293

This is the first product in a very long time that actually exceeded my expectations. First of all it is Made in the USA. Second, it was clearly made by people who not only know what they're doing but take great pride in their work as well. The fit and finish were perfect. I watched B & W's install video on YouTube and was again pleasantly surprised that it was relevant to the exact product I bought. Installation was very straight forward and, again, there were no surprises as between the video and the included instructions B & W had all their bases covered. Even though I didn't have extra help nor B & W's installation tool I was able to innovate with some 5/8" threaded rod and a couple nuts I had laying around. Everything fit together so perfect I was able to complete the installation in around 2 hours with a not-fully-recovered ruptured disc in my back. I have had this in my truck for several months now and I still think it's absolutely fantastic. It is hell for stout and simple to operate. Thank you so much B & W! Lets also not forget etrailer. It almost goes without saying that their service and shipping are prompt and courteous. 172726

This hitch went on just like it says. Did not have to remove spare tire or the heat shield....but you will have to pry the exhaust out of the hangar but that is no problem at all. If you have access to a lift that will help a great deal. I put truck on lift and with a friend helping we had it on in about 1 1/2 hours.....Great hitch. 162757

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


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

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


This unit was very handy to be able to purchase and install on my Bradford Built flatbed so that I could install my B&W companion hitch with flatbed base on the truck. The welding was all fairly straight forward and didn't require much except for a few washers and a piece of flat steel for a spacer. The one down side is that the hitch pin/handle does not have any built in twist-n-lock method to lock it so the pin remains disengaged for the ball or companion assembly install like on the common B&W under truck bed assemblies I've had on several trucks. We ended up installing the pin slightly out of line so that the tip of the pin would catch on the exterior of the receiver when pulled out and then when I wanted to engage the pin just push up on the handle and press the pin back in. I do like that I can still cover the hitch hole with the cover plate as seen in the picture. 453876


Comments

I still like the hitch and use it with my companion frequently but wish there was a twist and lock function like all the other B&W underbed hitches.

We use our hitch on a gooseneck trailer pulled by an F250. The hitch is freaking perfect. No problems at all. 576006

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


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

  • What is the Best Truck for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • You are doing the right thing by doing the research first. There is a lot of conflicting information out there so let me break it down for you and I will provide some part recommendations at the end. Basically, if you want to tow a 5th wheel trailer, the best trucks are going to be long bed 3/4 or 1 tons like a Ford F-250/F-350, Chevy/GMC 2500/3500, or Ram 2500/3500. Half ton trucks could work but are not nearly as capable as the larger trucks. A long bed for sure is something you will...

  • Recommended Best Truck For Towing 20,000-Lb Gooseneck Trailer
  • When asked for our recommendation about trucks that are towing fifth wheel or gooseneck trailers, most of the time we will recommend 1-ton trucks with an 8-ft bed and a diesel engine. The truck I recommend is the Ram 3500 Dually Tradesman with a 6.7 Cummins diesel and a 4.10 axle ratio. The towing capacity for this truck is 31,210 lbs. With a 3.73 axle ratio the towing capacity is 25,910 lbs. So if you plan on towing anything bigger than the trailer you are pulling I would go with...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Sliding Hitch Compatible With B&W Gooseneck Hitch In 2015 Ram 3500 6 Foot Bed
  • On your 2015 Ram 3500 short box, you can use the Demco 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitches # DM6140 along with the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R20 Slider - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # C16541. These parts are compatible with your B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck # BWGNRK1314. You can also use the B&W Companion Slider Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # BWRVK3400 confirmed to fit with your gooseneck hitch to give you...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Tonneau Cover Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500 with Short Bed
  • For your 2017 Ram 3500 6-1/2 Foot Bed without Factory Rail Kit you'll need a slider hitch to allow you to make tight turns without cab interference. My favorite slider hitches are the ones that automatically slide as you make tight turns as that saves you the hassle of getting out and activating the slider every time it's needed. For that I would recommend the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550037 and the install rail kit part # DM8551006. This is an underbed rail kit too which means when...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch for a 2015 Ram Mega Cab Dually with 6 Foot Bed Towing a 2015 Cyclone
  • Your 2015 Cyclone 3800 travel trailer is designed for short bed trucks, so there should not be any issues. You can still measure if you would like. In order to determine your cab clearance, measure under the truck bed the rear most edge of the C-channel frame cross member to the end of the bed. See page 2 number 1 of instructions link, length A figure A1. Next, inside the bed, measure the length of the bed from the rear edge to the front. View instruction link, length B figure A1.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Ram 3500 with OEM Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • The first thing to consider is whether or not an aftermarket gooseneck trailer hitch is compatible with the OEM underbed 5th wheel package on your 2013 Ram 3500. I know that there are currently no 5th wheel hitches that fit directly into the Dodge OEM prep package and to install an aftermarket gooseneck you will most likely have to remove the underbed brackets for the 5th wheel prep package so they will not interfere with the gooseneck brackets. There is more than one B and W companion...

  • Can Replacement Base for B&W Companion that Fits into Ram OEM Puck System Work without Puck System
  • We do have some below bed fifth wheel hitch install kits for your 2016 Ram 3500 however the B&W replacement base, part # BWRVB3600, cannot be installed in your truck without the factory prep package. If your Ram is a short bed you can use the install kit # DM8551006 from Demco and then use either part # DM8550022 for the 18,000 pound Hijacker Autoslide or part # DM8550037 for the 21,000 pound. This is an autosliding fifth wheel hitch to help with turning clearance in a short bed truck...

  • Will Demco AutoSlide 5th Wheel Hitch Fit with B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch?
  • The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider - Single Jaw - Above Bed - 21,000 lbs # DM8550035 is not compatible with the B&W turnoverball gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1314. The handle for the gooseneck ball will not work with the 5th wheel rails in place according to my contact at B&W. Unfortunately you will need to choose between them. If you go with the above bed rails, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer...

  • High Capacity Fifth Wheel/Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ram 3500
  • We have some high capacity hitch setup for you to consider, but none are more than 30k. Which for most trucks is more than adequate. That being said we are aware of the absurdly high towing capacity your 2016 Ram 3500 would have if it was a dually and a diesel and a long bed. I just checked the Ram page it lists a whopping 31,200 lb capacity for this vehicle configuration. The highest rated fifth wheel hitch we have to fit your 2016 Ram 3500 without the factory rail kit would be the...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 3500 8 Foot Bed
  • If your 2014 Ram 3500 with an 8 foot bed does not have the factory underbed hitch prep package you would want the B and W Gooseneck Hitch part # BWGNRK1314. Doesn't matter if you have a dually axle, this kit works either way. Install video attached. If you have the underbed hitch prep you would just need the Curt Gooseneck Ball part # C60601.

  • Options to Adapt Gooseneck Hitch to Tow 5th Wheel Trailer
  • In order to install a 5th wheel hitch in your truck the best solution I can offer is to remove your existing gooseneck and install either 5th wheel base rails or a B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch. If you decide you want to change out the gooseneck hitch in your truck, the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3500 and Companion slider hitch # BWRVK3400 are compatible with the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1314 for your 2013 Ram 3500. Using the B&W system will allow you to...

  • B and W Gooseneck Hitch and Firestone Air Bag Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500
  • For your 2017 Ram 3500 long bed the correct B and W gooseneck hitch is the part # BWGNRK1314 which has been confirmed as a fit. I attached an install video for this as well. If you ever needed to tow a fifth wheel trailer all you'd ever need is the part # BWRVK3500-5W then as this fits this hitch. The Firestone air bag kits are confirmed as a fit with gooseneck hitches like this so for that you'd want the # F2705 which is the correct fit for your Ram.

  • Does B&W Turnoverball Goosneck Hitch Work With Demco Adapter on 2014 Ram 3500?
  • There is no difference between # BWGNRK1314-5W and the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1314 other than how they show up in our fit guide. Each will work with the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W along with the Demco 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter # DM6140 that you asked about. These rails are compatible with Demco Hijacker Premier Series, B&W, Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above bed fifth wheel hitches. The Turnoverball...

  • Can a B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch from a Chevy Silverado Fit a 2018 Ram 3500 Long Bed
  • The part number you provided, which in our system is # BWRVB3500, is just the replacement base for the standard Companion hitch which is # BWRVK3500. If they are selling just the base then you will also need the head which is # BWRVC3006. Your 2018 Ram 3500 would also need to have a B&W gooseneck hitch installed to use the Companion. For your truck it is # BWGNRK1314. If you have the factory installed gooseneck hitch then the Companion hitch and base listed above will not fit. Instead...

  • Will B&W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Fit a 2018 Ram 3500 with Factory Air Leveling Suspension
  • Yes, you can install B&W Turnover Ball gooseneck trailer hitch # BWGNRK1314 on your 2018 Ram 3500 with the factory air leveling system. Your truck already has the structure under the bed to add the gooseneck hitch which means this installation does not require frame brackets (not to be confused with the factory prep package which is a little different). It is normally the frame brackets that can interfere with things like air suspension. But in this case it is not an issue! I have linked...

I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. To add an in-bed 7-Way trailer connector to make hooking up easier I recommend # 20110.

I attached an install video for this hitch as well on a 2016 Ram like yours. B and W makes very high quality hitches so this would be a great option for you that we would recommend highly.

  • Recommended B&W Gooseneck for 2015 Ram 3500 Mega Cab Laramie and Companion 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Replacement Base for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVB3500 or the full hitch # BWRVK3500 will work with your 2015 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab Laramie but won't give you the best turning clearance. I recommend using the sliding hitch # BWRVK3400 which uses base # BWRVB3405 with the same hitch head as the fixed hitch. You will simply need the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs # BWGNRK1314 for your truck. I also recommend...

  • Where to Install Safety Chains on Curt Q24 5th Wheel Hitch # C16545-16021
  • On the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Hitch # C16545-16021 safety chain attachment points are not included because unlike a gooseneck hitch, 5th wheels do not require safety chains. You will see that on gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1314 from B&W safety chain attachment u-bolts are included. Please see the linked photo I have prepared for you.

  • Recommended Truck for Towing a 20,000 lb 5th Wheel Trailer
  • There are many Heavy Duty/Super Duty 1 ton trucks that can tow 20,000 lb 5th wheel campers cross country. I recommend getting a long bed truck and getting the factory prep package so you will have a clean bed for other uses when not towing. If you do this, you will need to get a 5th wheel hitch compatible with the puck system in the truck you choose or at least get the rail adapter if you already have a hitch compatible with the trailer weight. If you let me know what vehicle you choose,...

  • High Capacity Fifth Wheel/Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ram 3500
  • The highest rated fifth wheel option we have for your 2018 Ram 3500 without the factory rail kit has a 26k capacity and is the Husky 26k part # HT31318-31325 and requires the rail kit part # HT32221-686. We do offer gooseneck hitches that fit your vehicle that do have a 30k capacity like the B and W part # BWGNRK1314. An added benefit to this gooseneck hitch is that it doubles as a rail kit for the Companion fifth wheel hitch part # BWRVK3500 which is considered by many to be the nicest...

This is a 20k setup that many consider to be the nicest around so it would work well for you. If instead you have a short bed truck and require a slider hitch the best setup is the Demco Hijacker 21k hitch part # DM8550035 which will automatically slide as you make tight turns.

  • Can a Curt X5 Adapter be Used in a B&W Gooseneck Hitch in a 2016 Ram 3500 Short Bed
  • The X5 adapter # 16310 is not compatible with the B&W gooseneck hitches for the 2016 Ram 3500. The issue is that it does not drop down far enough into the gooseneck ball hole for the pin to go through the hole in the shank of the X5 adapter. We made Curt aware of this and expect that they will resolve it at some point but have not heard anything yet. What I recommend is to install the gooseneck hitch, # BWGNRK1314, and then use the Companion slider # BWRVK3400-5W. I checked with B&W...

  • Availability of 5th Wheel Hitch to Tow 25,900 lb Car Hauler with a 2014 Ram 3500
  • If your loaded trailer weight is 25,900 lbs then you will want to use a gooseneck hitch rather than a 5th wheel hitch. The highest rated 5th wheel hitch that we have to offer is the Husky # HT31318-31325 rated for 26,000 lbs. You won't find too many 5th wheel hitches anywhere else that will be rated much higher than this. The 100 lb difference in the weight of the trailer and capacity of the 5th wheel hitch is too close to consider a safe margin. Gooseneck hitches are rated for at least...

This hitch requires industry standard rails and for that fit, I recommend the installation kit # BWRVK2601 which requires no drilling into your truck frame rails.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ram 3500 for Clean Bed When Not Towing
  • The best fifth wheel hitches are the B&W Companion hitches. They are considered by nearly all RVers to be the best because of how well made they (here in the USA), how easy they are to use, how reliable they are, how tight they hold the king pin which translates into the smoothest ride quality, and how clean they leave the truck bed when removed. So for your 2018 Ram 3500 long bed without the factory rail kit you'd want the Companion part # BWRVK3500 which has a 20k capacity. Then to...
