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 - BWGNRK1316 Review

Speaker 1: Today were going to review part number BWGNRK1316. This is the B&W Turnover Ball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the custom installation kit. Has a 30,000 pound weight capacity. For demonstration purpose, I have mounted the underbed gooseneck hitch on to the custom installation kit.This part number is designed to fit the 2002 to 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Series Trucks, either the six foot bed or the eight foot bed. It will not fit the Mega Cap models. This is a heavy duty underbed hitch which will let you tow your gooseneck trailer.If you do remove the ball, it will give you complete truck bed access when youre not towing and you can also store this turnover ball by just turning it upside down, dropping it into the opening and then you have your complete truck bed access still.If you do need to lock this into place, the handle right here, this handle is accessible to rear driver side wheel well and that end of this handle, right underneath here on the hitch, there is a five eights inch diameter spring loaded steel locking pin.

When you do twist this handle and it releases that pin, it slides in and locks this ball into place.Basically, to open it, if you just pull, twist it, it will lock it open. You can bring the ball out when you go to go to tow. If you drop it the right side up, twist it to let it lock and that pin locks the ball into place. This turnover ball is a single piece machine ball socket, provides rugged durability. Has a square ball base you can see here which will prevent the ball from turning in this hitch during hookup.As you can see, when youre trying to hook up this ball will not turn.

If youll also notice, the corners of this square base are chamfered and the reason they do that is so when you drop it in to the square opening, it will leave at each corner a slide opening to allow any dirt or grind that might build up overtime to fallout and not stay in there and prevent the ball from make it hard to get out or get in. Thats a nice little feature they thought of.This B&W Underbed Gooseneck Hitch is specifically designed to use B&W accessories which we sell separately. It makes it very easy to customize your hitch to fit your needs. One of the popular accessories used on this is sometimes a person towing a gooseneck might run into a situation where they need to tow a fifth wheel trailer. In that case you can use the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch Adapter.Basically, what that does is if you remove the gooseneck ball, this fifth wheel, the companion fifth wheel hitch adapter is a fifth wheel hitch that would drop in to your truck bed and it is held in place.

Theres a post at the center of it that would drop down in here and then you release the handle to lock it into place and that would hold that fifth wheel hitch in place in your truck bed and allow you to be able to tow a fifth wheel trailer with that. We do sell that accessory separately.Also, it has, if youll notice here, the spring loaded safety chain hookups which are built-in. Basically, you just pull up on them, hook your safety chain on there and theyll pull it and hold it into place. This is a very simple installation with the included mounting custom installation kit I show here and all the hardware that comes with it. There is no welding required to install it.The truck bed does not have to be removed for this to be installed.

What you do need to do to the truck bed though is for the access to this opening, you do need to drill a four inch diameter hole in your truck bed so youll have access to this opening. Youll need to drill four holes for your spring loaded safety chain hookups to go through.This part is a powder coated steel which is sturdy and corrosion resistant. It is made in the USA. The gross towing weight capacity on this hitch is 30,000 pounds. The vertical load limit or pin weight capacity is 75,000 pounds and the gooseneck ball size on this turnover ball is two and five sixteenths diameter. It does comes with a limited lifetime warranty.Again, just quickly to show you. If youre going to tow a gooseneck trailer, drop the ball into the socket, release the handle or the pin with this handle, locks it into place, youre ready to tow. If you go to remove it, just pullout, twist it, that will lock it open. Take this turnover ball and you want to store it. Theres a little handle here that you can hold on to and you could drop it right down into place. Twist it to release the pin and its locked into place.That should do it for the review on part number BWGNRK1316, the B&W Turnover ball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the custom installation kit. .

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


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

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


Suprised how quickly again etrailer was on shipping out! Holiday week and the they had it on its way the day I ordered it. I always have had great success with etrailer. Simple to install hitch with the directions and online video instructions. Hardest part was drilling the 4" hole in the floor of the bed. Again the video had excellent tips to aide with that. We were really surprised how quickly it was to install. Absolutely love the quick way the ball flips over to remove it out of the way for the use of the truck bed. Only thing I would do different, order the rubber cover for the bottom of the ball to keep debris out of the hitch while inverted. Going to place an order for one now from etrailer! 735337

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

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. I like the turnover ball and how it is not in the way when you need your bed. I installed it my self with no problems. Great hitch. 604082

Review from a similar B and W Turnoverball in Gooseneck


Watch the install video on here before you install it, the video is very well done. 1. Lower the spare tire 2. Remove the heat shield 3. Drop the exhaust, at least the rear hanger. 4. Hang the hitch plate using a rope or something from inside the bed. Holding it while starting the bolts sucks. Doing those things will save you hours of time. You might be able to wiggle that plate in without doing those things but the install will go from super easy to extremely difficult. I tried. After doing it once, I'm pretty sure I could do it again in an hour or less. Very happy with the hitch on a 2018 Ram 2500. etrailer rocks. 619981

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

    If the safety chain loops on your B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch are located a bit behind the ball, such as with the part # BWGNRK1313 that is designed for your Dodge Ram, then you will likely need to remove them for the Demco Base Rail Adapter # DM6140 to mount without issue.
