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 Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Ram 3500

Today on our 2016 Ram 3500, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the BNW turnover ball on your bed gooseneck trailer hitch, with custom installation kit. Part number BWGNRK1314. Here's what our BNW under bed turnover ball gooseneck hitch is going to look like once it's installed in our vehicle. You'll have the safety chain tie downs that will spring loaded on either side. Now moving over here to the gooseneck portion, you're going to have a powder coated gooseneck with super tight tolerances so everything is going to be nice and secure as well as a two and five sixteenths anodized ball that will prevent any kind of rust and corrosion. This gooseneck is going to offer a seventy-five hundred pound or seven thousand, five hundred pound vertical load limit and thirty thousand pound towing capacity. We're ready to go ahead and insert our ball. To do so we'll come over to the handle, pull the handle to latch it and lock it into position by rotating it towards the driver side. We'll go ahead and drop our ball into position and then latch the side handle, locking it in.

Say we don't have our trailer hooked up anymore, we'll pull out the handle and rotate it towards the driver side, locking it in, come up top, pull it out and flip it over, putting it into the stow position, locking the pin back in and you can see the pin come through the hole. It is advisable that with these goosenecks, you do spray a little bit of lithium grease or some kind of grease on the inside just to help them come in and out a little easier since they do have such a tight tolerance and tight fit. First thing we're going to do is remove our spare tire to give us some extra room underneath. Let's go ahead and get the heat shield out of the way while we're down here. Remove the two ten millimeter bolts here and then there's going to be two on the backside, underneath attached to the cross member. Go ahead and keep in mind that the removal of the spare tire and heat shield is optional but it's just going to help free up some room so we can work. Let's go ahead and drop down the exhaust. To do so we're going to remove the exhaust hanger here, use a little bit of spray lubricant to help slide it off and then use a pry bar to peel it back.

We have the one here and we're also going to have two just forward on top the muffler. Now we'll use the square template provider that has the hole in the center to place up inside the factory rail to pre-drill out where our center hole is going to be. Now using our three and a half inch hole say, we'll drill down through the pre-drilled hole that we just put in. From the top side of the bend downwards. Now you can see that our hole is going to be directly in the center of that factory plate with an even amount all the way around to provide us enough access to get that through. Now we will insert our plastic spacer block that's going to go in between the bed and the frame.

Slide it in from the front side and work it back. We'll go ahead and center that up and remove that center section that we drilled out. Here we have our handles that are going to go above, kind of where we put that plastic spacer block in between the bed and the frame for our gooseneck. Now these are going to slide in between from the fender well side. You kind of have to work it in.

We do not need to remove those fenders and you'll be able to work them in and over the top of these holes that you see here from the factory. These will be where our bolts secure to for our gooseneck. To slide the driver's side in we're going to stick it up on top, working it in past the fender and then over the top until we line up the holes. You can hear the tab lock in, that tab that was facing downwards. Line up the holes and we'll be all set to put in the passenger side. You'll see a hole there with all of our weld nuts, we're going to weld it onto those handles. We'll have all of our weld nuts in place at this point. Now we'll raise our center section up into place. It is going to get raised at an angle over the top of the exhaust with the large diameter circle here that's welded on for our center, that's going to be on top. If you look at it from the bottom side it should look something like this with the driver's side handle facing out towards the front in this direction. We'll raise it up and over at an angle. Go ahead and place in our two center bolts, just to hold each side in. Now we'll go ahead and place in the rest of the five eighths inch flange bolts. We'll go ahead and use a one inch socket to go ahead and run those down until they're about one sixteenth of an inch from being tightened all the way down. We'll repeat this on the rest of the five eighths inch flange bolts. Now we're going to come up into the bed of the truck and you're going to see that's going to be perfectly centered in the inside here with that plastic spacer going around and the hitch in between. You can see that it rubbed up a little bit when we tightened it up and it popped right into place. Now we'll go ahead and torque down all of our five eighths inch flange bolts to manufacturer specifications. Now that we've got those all torqued down, let's go ahead and put in our small carriage bolts over the top of the handle. Go ahead and push them up and drop them in. We got one in, let's go ahead and get the other one in. All right, now that we got them both in, we're ready to go ahead and grab the handle. Now we'll go ahead and take our handle and we're going to put it on this side of the hatch handle, over the top of the frame with the bracket with the holes in it going over first. Work it down into position over the top. Go ahead and place both of our carriage bolts through the bracket just like so. We'll place on our locking flange nuts, tighten and torque those to manufacturer specifications. All right, now with our bolts tightened down and torqued on our handle, we'll go ahead and test out the operation to make sure that it functions with our fender well cover in place. Go ahead and pull out all the way, slide it towards the driver side to lock it in place and you'll see that we're going to have plenty of room back behind. To lock it in and then when we're done, just slide it back and it's going to slide back in. So that's fully functional. Now we'll move on to the safety chains. Go ahead and take our nine sixteenths drill bit and drill them through. On that front one we're going to have to drill through the factory cross member here and then through the bed so it's going to take you just a moment longer than it would just drilling through the bed on the back ones. We'll go ahead and put our safety chains down into the slots and make sure they go up and down nice and smoothly. Now on the bottom side, what we're going to do we're going to place our springs over with the large side of the cone at the top, press them up and then thread on our lock nut. It's good to go ahead and let that go and then we'll repeat that same process on the other three ends coming through. Go ahead and tighten these down until the threads are about halfway out of the lock nut. Now we'll go ahead and put our exhaust up into place. We're going to need to pry it back and into position. Now that we got the exhaust hung back up, we'll put our exhaust heat shield back into position. Hand the bolt over the alignment stub first. Lastly, we'll raise the spare tire back up into position and that will do it for our review and installation of the BNW turnover ball under bed gooseneck trailer hitch with custom installation kit. Part number BWGNRK1314 on our 2016 Ram 3500.

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

  • You can replace the OEM puck system on your 2016 Ram 3500 with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1314 but you will need to use the installation hardware that comes with the B&W kit. Not only have these bolts been tested and approved with the B&W gooseneck hitch but typically hitch hardware, whether it is for bumper pull or 5th wheel/gooseneck hitches, is only meant to be torqued once.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Difference Between B&W Turnoverball Hitches BWGNRK1314-5W and BWGNRK1314
  • They are the exact same hitch. We use different part numbers to put them in two different fitguides. The 5W at the end of part # BWGNRK1314-5W stands for fifth wheel. Since this gooseneck hitch can be used as a gooseneck hitch or as a base for a Companion hitch like the part # BWRVK3500 it can show up in either fitguide.

  • 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...

  • Availability of Aftermarket Puck System for 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2015 Ram 3500
  • The only way for you to retain an open bed on your 2015 Ram 3500 without having the OEM system installed from Ram is to use the Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1314 with the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500 for a long bed or # BWRVK3400 for a short bed. If you already have a Companion then you can simply replace the base unit with part # BWRVB3500 or # BWRVB3405 respectively.

  • Gooseneck Ball Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ram 3500 for Use with Convert a Ball Adapter
  • The adapter can't be used with the factory rail kits as the Convert a Ball damages the release lever on top of the gooseneck ball. If you do not have the factory hitch prep package you'd want the B and W Tunoverball gooseneck hitch part # BWGNRK1314. I attached install videos for both hitch setups as well.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Comparing B&W Companion 5th Wheel Sliding Hitch to Patriot Slider for 2018 Ram 3500
  • For your 2018 Ram 3500 short bed, the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3270 is a confirmed fit. 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. This combination works great but will give you the above bed rails to deal with when the hitch is not installed. For a Companion Slider # BWRVK3400 you would need to use the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck...

  • 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...

  • 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.

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.

  • 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...

  • 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...
