Note: If your truck's suspension has a stabilizer in between the top of the differential housing and the frame, turning over the ball and stowing it in the socket could cause damage to your truck's suspension.


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 3-1/2" 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 Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Ram 2500

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Ram 2500, we're going to be installing the B and W Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part number BWGNRK1384.This is an ideal setup for hauling your gooseneck trailer. It can be later upgraded with the B and W companion for your fifth wheel trailer.When hooking up your companion for your fifth wheel trailer, it just slides right into the slot in your center unit. There's a release lever on your driver's side wheel well. This is for your ball mount. You can lock it forward to keep it released, and pull it back and let it in to lock your ball in place. This is convenient and easy to access.One of the main benefits of this kit versus others is that you'll be able to have full truck bed access.

Your ball mount can be flipped over and stored flush, and your safety chains are spring loaded, so they stay flush against the bed. So no worries of your ball mount getting in your way loading up the back. This is nice and easy because there's no uninstallation of any components; just flip things over, slide it back in, it's awesome. It's a one piece machine ball mount for extra durability. There's a little hook in the bottom so it can be easily pulled out from its storage position.

The base has a square opening for your ball mount; this way it can't rotate when you're inserting your pin so there's no fumbling around trying to get it lined up.It has a 7,500 pound over the bed capacity, and a 30,000 pound gross trailer weight capacity. There's no welding required, the bed doesn't have to come off. There's some minor drilling required, but the installation process is fairly easy with great directions.Now, if you're trying to decide between a gooseneck, or a bumper style trailer hitch, some of the main differences are that all the weight is going to be on the back of your vehicle on your bumper style trailer hitch. This is going to produce more sway on your trailer hauling it behind you, and it's going to cause more oscillations in the back of your vehicle.But your gooseneck on the other hand is going to position all the weight over your rear axle. So this is going to reduce a lot of sway in your vehicle and trailer, it's going to allow for tighter turning radius's, and it's going to allow you to haul greater capacities.

So you'll be able to have a longer, heavier load in the back end. This is great for living quarters and other things.To begin our installation, we're going to make a few preparations. Get your spare tire out of the way if it's installed, and then we're going to get this heat shield out of the way so we have better access to start drilling for our gooseneck. Using a 10mm socket, we're going to remove the three bolts on your heat shield here, and the two bolts located on the other side of the heat shield here. And just set this aside.We're going to go ahead and put a strap in place so we can lower our exhaust out of our way.

This will catch the exhaust to prevent any damage happening while lowering it. Go ahead and spray the hanger down with some lubricant; this will make it easier to come off, and just pry it out of the way.Now that we've got our heat shield out of the way, we can easily access the location we're going to be drilling for our gooseneck. Go ahead and take the template that comes in your kit, put it in the hole, then mark the middle. If you have a center punch that will fit in the hole, you can go ahead and punch it now. If not, you may need to mark it with something else so that you can punch it later. Now that we've made our mark where to drill, we're going to go ahead and use a center punch to ping that to make it easier when drilling.Now we've got our center punch, we're going to make a pilot hole using a quarter inch drill bit. Now that we've got our pilot hole drilled, we're going to use a three and a half inch hole saw to allow the opening for our gooseneck to stick through our bed. Now that we've got our hole drilled, we're going to go ahead and clean this up here. Grab a shop vac and just get all that out of there.Now that we've got everything cleaned up, we're going to go back with some protective coating. You can use some gloss enamel, just to prevent any rust in the future. Next, we're going to take our plastic spacer and we're going to put it between our frame here and our bed. We're going to need to come around up top, slide it over, and push it in there. Now it might be necessary for you to use a screwdriver, or other small tool to finish pushing it into place. Go ahead and get this centered, and now our spacer is properly in place.Next we're going to put our weld nuts into place. Use the angled handle to slide it up in there. You might have to tweak the fender a little bit to get it to go all the way. Now that you've got your handle in there, you want to go ahead and line up your nuts with your holes. You can use the screwdriver here to help center everything. You want the outsides to line up.Now on our driver's side, it's going to be the same process but you're going to have a harness in the way. I just take a screwdriver or body panel removal tool, and pop these harness clips up out of the way so you can get your weld nuts in place. With our harness moved out of the way, we can slide our weld nuts in just like on the other side. Might have to move the fender out of the way a little bit. Then again, center your weld nuts with the holes in the frame here. This is a good time to grab your harness and pull it back down, and clip it into place.Now we can go ahead and put our gooseneck up into place. Make sure that when you're putting it up, the holes towards the front of the vehicle, and the handle is on the driver's side. Now you'll take your large hex head bolts that are included in your kit, line it up with the hole and your weld nuts, and go ahead and get it started. Once you get one started, that will hold that up and then you can move onto your next bolt. Now you want to go back and snug your bolts up. You don't want to have them all the way tight, you want to have a little bit of play because we need to make sure that we're centered within our hole. Measure the distance between your center section and your frame. We're going to go ahead and use the spring here, and make sure it's the same on both the passenger and driver's side. Then you'll make any adjustments pushing it left or right as necessary. Now that we've got everything centered, go back and tighten them all the way down. With everything snugged up, go back and torque them to the specifications in your instructions.Next, we're going to be installing our handle. Take your carriage bolts, and slide them through the release mechanism on the center carriage. Take your handle, slide it up over the fuel tank, up over your frame, slide it on your carriage bolts, and start your nuts. These are going to be the flanged lock nuts in your kit. There will be two of them. Go back and tighten on your bolts using a 9/16 socket. Then go back and torque your bolts for the specifications in your instructions.We're going to drill out our safety chain mount locations now. Make sure that your pin is engaged, and then insert your ball mount. This way, your ball mount will stay raised up as it sits on the pin. We're going to use that with our template provided as a guide. Go ahead and slide that down over it. Then refer to your vehicle in the gooseneck kit that you're installing to find the appropriate holes. Ours is 1384, so we'll be using these holes. Go ahead and mark your holes, and then again use your center punch to make sure you drill straight.Now we can drill out our holes. We're going to be drilling it to a half inch. However, I'm going to start with a quarter inch hole as a pilot hole to make it easier to drill through, then we'll step it up to half inch. Little lubrication makes the drilling process faster. Need to drill all the way through, and repeat this for your remaining holes. With all of our pilot holes drilled, we'll now step it up to half inch, and repeat that for your remaining holes.Now that we've got all our holes drilled, we'll go back and clean them up. Now you want to go back and use some black gloss 00:09:10 spray paint to prevent any rust and corrosion from occurring in the future. With it being about a half inch diameter, you can poke your finger through a napkin and that will make a pretty good template to keep the paint right on where you drilled.Now with our holes painted over and drilled, we can slide our u-bolts down, and we'll be attaching them underneath. Now that we've got our u-bolts passed through our bed, we're going to take our four springs included. Take one of them with the wider side towards the top, slide it over your u-bolt, and then install your nut. Do this for the remaining three locations. Tighten them down using a three quarter inch socket. Now with all your hardware loosely installed, you're going to go back and tighten it up using a three quarter inch socket until your nut is flush with the bottom of your u-bolt. Do that for the remaining bolts.Now we just need to put our handle sticker in place. Use a little bit of alcohol and a cloth to clean up your frame here, so that way the adhesive will stick well. Then just place your sticker below your handle.Now that our hitch is fully installed, we're ready to reassemble our components we removed earlier. We'll put our exhaust back up, and our exhaust heat shield back on. Then put your spare tire back up, and re-installation is complete. Slide your ball mount in, and reengage the pin and you're ready to go.That completes our installation of the B and W Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, on our 2018 Ram 2500.

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

Install was easy. Everything fit perfectly. The only thing I wish it had was a way to lock the release handle. Turning the ball over is a two man job. 669596

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

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

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

Great hitch! Hands down better in every way than the competitor. Spend the extra money and get the B&W. Installation was pretty straight forward, and as always great customer service from etrailer. 572872

Ordered on a Sunday evening and received it Wednesday. Install was straight forward and easy with a second pair of hands. The only problem I have is my exhaust is hitting the hitch plate and is causing a rattle. I faught with the exhaust longer then it took to install the hitch. I do have a 4 inch aftermarket exhaust and may go by a shop to see if it can be modified to clear the hitch. Haven't towed with it yet. I installed this to pull my fifth wheel with the reese goosebox. 703933

I haven't been able to use the new hitch yet, but I will say that everything came packaged nicely, the directions were easy to follow, and the install was simple by one person. I do say that I recommend a second person to install the big heavy base plate. It was a PIA to do it ones self, but it can be done. I am looking forward to using the hitch in the near future. 671978

Great product! This is the second under bed turnover ball hitch that I have purchased from etrailer to go along with my companion 5th wheel hitch. I previously owned a 2004 Dodge Ram that I put the first one on, and most recently I put one on my 2016 Dodge Ram. Both applications took a little work, but were pretty much straight forward. B&W hitches are extremely well made and you won't be disappointed by purchasing one of them. I use my hitch to pull a 32' 5th wheel camper and it works great, no issues whatsoever. 666524

The actual product was good however I was converting my 2016 Ram 2500 from the factory prep package goosneck ball to the BW and found that the factory bolts arent able to be removed without taking off the truck bed. The holes in the BW didnt line up exactly with the existing bolts so I had to enlarge the holes alittle and just reused the factory hardware. All in all not a big deal but it would be nice if BW provided instructions for converting from Ram prep package to BW. Also was disappointed that the price was the same as if I was installing an entire bw turnover ball assembly. The bw is definitely an upgrade over the factory ball mount though. 608697

B and w gooseneck hitch seems to be well designed and well made. I installed myself and a lift would have really made it easier. Left spare tire in place but had to drop tail pipe. Space is tight under there and i didnt have an impact, made it difficult and took some time. Etrailer videos of installing helped as did James with my decission to purchase from etrailer. im glad i went with the b and w from etrailer. Thank you James for the help. 600778

Great product. Installed it by myself in a 2016 Ram 2500 short bed mega cab. The one I received had a cardboard template to drill the safety chain hooks from the top. Took about two hours to install. The hardest part was holding it in place and torquing the bolts to 150ft in the limited space under the truck. I was able to completely remove a portion of the exhaust right in front of the axle. Made the job a lot easier. 540869

  • Best Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Ram 2500
  • All of the 2017 Ram 2500 models have the structure built already under the bed to add a gooseneck hitch. Models with the factory prep package would actually have the hitch and the four 5th wheel hitch holes in the bed. If it were me I would go with the B&W option, # BWGNRK1384, since they are so well made and made right here in the USA. Because Ram had that structure as a part of the vehicle build it makes it a lot easier to add a gooseneck hitch. You can use # 9467 from Draw-Tite,...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch for 2017 Ram 2500 with 6-Foot Bed and Without Factory Rail Kit
  • We do have several gooseneck hitch options for your 2017 Ram 2500 with 6-foot bed and without the factory rail kit that you can see on the linked page. All of these hitches from B&W, Curt and Draw-Tite include the 2-5/16-inch hitch ball and all offer no-drill installation. I would go for either the B&W or the Curt since both offer the higher 30K weight capacity than the Draw-Tite # 9467. Between the Curt and the B&W if cost is not the primary consideration go for the B&W. Their hitches,...

  • Gooseneck Hitches for 2016 Ram 2500
  • We do have confirmed gooseneck hitch fits for the 2016 Ram 2500 short bed and long bed pickups that do not have the factory prep package. Available gooseneck hitches are shown on the linked page. # BWGNRK1384 from B&W # 9467 from Draw-Tite # C60614 from Curt Reese Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch head # 9464 is designed for use with either a custom-made rail kit or a vehicle-specific rail kit from Draw-Tite. It is not a complete hitch.

  • Best Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Ram 2500 6-1/2 Foot Bed with RamBox
  • The gooseneck trailer hitch I recommend for your 2018 Ram 2500 with the 6-1/2' and RamBox is the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNRK1384. The reason I recommend this gooseneck hitch is because unlike the other options for your truck it has a standard release lever which may take a bit more work to remove but the hitch ball is much less likely to get stuck due to a damaged ball and would also be more cost effective to replace. The other key notes about the...

  • Offset Gooseneck Ball for 2017 Ram 2500 with B&W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch BWGNRK1384
  • For B&W gooseneck trailer hitch # BWGNRK1384 in your 2017 Ram you can use offset ball # BWGNXA4085. The other one you mentioned, # BWGNXA4685, was designed for the B&W gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1309 which is for the Ram 1500 so it is not compatible with the 2500 or 3500 Rams. So in other words you will need # BWGNXA4085.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch for 2014 Ram 2500 Limited with 6 Foot Bed and Ram Boxes
  • If your 2014 Ram 2500 Limited has Coil Springs, I recommend the B&W # BWGNRK1384 gooseneck hitch for your 6 foot bed with Ram Boxes on the side. This gooseneck hitch will have a 7,500 TW and a 30,000lb GTW. There will be no drilling to install the frame brackets of this installation kit. If you don't have coil spring then I recommend the Curt # C60614 gooseneck hitch, because it has the same towing capacities as the B&W gooseneck hitch. I have linked the above mentioned products...

  • Gooseneck Hitch with Offset Hitch Ball for 2016 Ram 2500
  • For your 2016 Ram 2500 we have a gooseneck hitch that has an offset ball available for it, but it's not the Curt you mentioned. Instead you'd want the B and W kit part # BWGNRK1384 which fits your truck and then the offfset ball # BWGNXA4085.

  • Adapter Needed for 5th Wheel Hitch to Fit Gooseneck Hitch on 2017 Ram 2500 with Short Bed
  • Although we do not have any options to convert a factory prep kit for your 2017 Ram 2500 so that it is compatible with a 5th wheel hitch using the ball bearing locking system, I do have another solution for you. I recommend installing the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1384 which gives you only the the gooseneck system that you are looking for. This system uses a lever at your wheel-well to lock the hitch ball into place. I have attached a sample installation...

  • Gooseneck And Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendations For 2017 Ram 2500 With A Short Bed
  • Ideally, you would buy your truck with the factory rail kit already installed. And to be honest, I recommend the long bed since you said you are going to tow a fifth wheel or gooseneck trailer. An 8 ft bed lets you make sharp turns when towing with no issue for clearance. If you purchase a short bed with the factory rail kit, and you want to tow a gooseneck trailer, I recommend The Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit # C60618. This kit comes with a ball with an easy-to-use lever and...

  • Is the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible With the Curt Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • I have solution for you, however, the Curt Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # C60614, is not compatible with the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch, # BWRVK3400. The gooseneck base for the Companion is squared shaped and will not fit the round hole in the Curt gooseneck hitch. The B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit, # BWGNRK1384, is confirmed to fit a 2015 Ram 2500 truck and will allow you to mount the B&W Companion hitch in your truck's bed.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch On 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 With Coil Springs
  • For your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with no factory rail kit, I recommend the B and W Gooseneck, part # BWGNRK1384. This hitch is custom designed for your Dodge pickup. The mounting brackets that are included bolt to the existing holes in the truck frame and do not require welding or drilling of the truck frame. You will need to cut a 3-1/2 inch hole of your truck for the hitch ball and holes will need to be drilled for the safety chain loops. If you decide to change to a fifth-wheel...

  • Recommended Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch For 2016 Ram 2500
  • For an under bed gooseneck hitch I recommend the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part # BWGNRK1384. This comes with a custom installation kit. The hitch has spring-loaded safety-chain hookups built in. The hitch ball can be removed and flipped upside down in the hitch for storage when you are not towing. The gooseneck can be used with a Companion fifth wheel hitch if you ever need to tow a fifth wheel. If you need a wiring harness for your trailer I recommend...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Towing Setup for 2017 Ram 2500 with B and W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch
  • So I have a great solution that will allow you to keep your B and W Turnoverball hitch # BWGNRK1384 installed in the bed of your 2017 Ram 2500 and also allow you to tow a fifth wheel trailer if needed. The Companion hitches fit directly to your current gooseneck hitch and are considered to be the best on the market so we recommend them highly. If you have a long bed you'd want the fixed Companion part # BWRVK3500 or if you have a short bed you'd need the slider version part # BWRVK3400...

  • Best Underbed Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ram 2500 w/o Factory rail Kit for Clear Bed
  • For your 2018 Ram 2500 short bed the best underbed fifth wheel hitch setup will be the B and W Companion Slider Hitch part # BWRVK3400 and the rail kit part # BWGNRK1384. This setup gives you the best slider fifth wheel hitch on the market and an underbed rail kit like you wanted. What's also great is that the rail kit also doubles as a gooseneck hitch too. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well. For a 7-way to install in the bed of your truck to make...

  • Will Gooseneck Hitches Fit a 2016 Ram 2500 with Ram Boxes
  • If your 2016 Ram 2500 with the Ram Box has coil springs, I recommend the B&W # BWGNRK1384 gooseneck hitch for your 6 foot bed with Ram Boxes on the side. This gooseneck hitch will have a 7,500 TW and a 30,000lb GTW. There will be no drilling to install the frame brackets of this installation kit. If you don't have coil spring then I recommend the Curt # C60614 gooseneck hitch, because it has the same towing capacities as the B&W gooseneck hitch. I have linked the above mentioned...

  • Can I Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer While Using a Gooseneck Adapter with a Short Bed Ram 2500
  • In order to tow a 5th wheel trailer using a Ram 2500 with the 6-1/2' bed you will need to use either a sliding 5th wheel hitch or a rotating pin box. The 5th wheel to gooseneck adapters that you are referring to will not work on a short bed truck because you will not have turning clearance between the cab of the vehicle and loft of the trailer. There are options out there such as the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter part # CAB-C5GX1216 or the Ranch Hitch Universal...

  • 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.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recomendation for 2014 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Air Suspension
  • B & W does indeed have an application for your 2014 Ram 2500 with the air over coil spring suspension. You'll need the B & W Turnover Ball # BWGNRK1384. I have confirmed with B & W that the hitch is compatible with your truck. If at some time in the future you decide that you want to tow a fifth wheel, you could easily do so by installing a sliding fifth wheel hitch like the B & W Companion, part # BWRVK3400-5W. If you need a 7-way installed in your truck bed, you can install one using...

  • Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Dodge Ram 2500
  • I have an option for you that covers your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 towing a fifth wheel and a gooseneck trailer but you will have to remove your gooseneck hitch...unless it's a B and W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1384. Basically what you would need to do is install the # BWGNRK1384 (if you don't have it already) so that you can then use the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3400. Since the rail kit mentioned doubles as a gooseneck hitch you'd have both trailer styles covered.

If you do not have a gooseneck hitch installed in your truck, then you can install the B and W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch, # BWGNRK1384.

As you can see, these two gooseneck hitches are very different so no they will not work with one another which can be said for pretty much any gooseneck hitch as they are not universal and are designed for specific models.

  • Does B&W Offset Gooseneck Coupler Reduce Towing Capacity of 2018 Ram 2500

Keep in mind the your towing capacity will be limited to the lowest-rated component of your towing set-up; for example, the maximum fifth wheel towing capacity of a 2018 Ram 2500HD is 17,980 lbs and that...
