Even with the ball installed, the hitch takes up very little space in the truck bed. The rail system and gooseneck head unit is mounted under the bed. Only a 3-1/2" hole is required for the ball hole opening. Safety chain holders sit flush against truck bed floor.



Image of truck bed with hitch ball flipped over for storage

When not in use, the ball can be flipped over and inserted back into the hole. The low profile design makes for uninhibited truck bed access when your carrying other gear.

The ball hole can then be covered with the included magnet to help keep dirt and debris out.



Ball accessible in wheel well

The heavy duty handle with reinforced locking pin holds the ball in place and is easily accessible in the wheel well. To store the ball, simply pull the handle and twist it to secure in the open position. Then remove the ball, flip it over and slide it upside down back into the hole. After placing the magnetic cover, simply rotate the handle in the wheel well back to its starting position and the stowed ball will be secure.

Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Ford F-250 and F-350 Sup

Today on our 2013 Ford F-250 you're going to be taking a look at and I'm going to show you how to install the Draw Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Installation Kit. This is what our hitch is going to look like when it's installed. What this is good for is it's going to give us total bed access. Our safety chain loops are going to fit in a lower corrugation. Our hitch sits right at bed level, so any time we want to slide anything in and out, we're not going to have to worry about damage.It's going to come with a 2-5/16" ball, and you're going to see a groove here in the side. There's going to be a pin on the inside of the hitch, and little tabs at the very bottom.

That's going to keep your ball from sliding all the way through when you're using it, and when you want to start, you simply flip it over and drop it down in the hole. This is going to eliminate the need for having to take your ball off and store it somewhere, like in the inside of the truck, under the seat, something like that. You may take a chance of losing it.So, when you're ready to use it, simply drop your ball in the upright position. Lock your pin in place, and you're ready to go. Your safety chain loops are going to be spring loaded, so they stay nice and tight against the bed when not in use.

Now, we're going to have a 30,000-pound gross trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included, and a 7,500-pound vertical load limit, which is straight up and down on the ball. I do recommend checking the owner's manual of your vehicle to make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You're going to go with the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.Our center section, our crossmembers that are going to spread from frame rail to frame rail, and our frame brackets are all going to have a nice black powder coat finish that's going to resist any rust or corrosion. Our handle is also going to be spring loaded, and another thing that I really like about this hitch is we can use our handle on either side. We can use it on the driver side or passenger side.As far as our frame brackets, they're going to mount to the outside of our frame rails, and they're going to use existing holes already in the frame.

This hitch is going to come with all of the necessary hardware, and it's not going to require any welding. The only thing we're going to have to drill is right under the top of the bed. Now that we've gone over some of the features, let me show you how to get it installed.To begin your installation, it's going to make it easier if you lower your spare tire. Next, we need to lower our exhaust. We're going to have a 10 millimeter head bolt right here on that front side.

Once you're done removing this one, you're going to have a second one up here on the top. Next, on your driver side right above your tank, you're going to have two lines that come off here. We're going to pull them off the top of this bracket, and then we're going to relocate them.You're going to get a couple zip ties in your kit. What I'm going to try to do is take them off. I'm going to push them down here on the bottom and zip tie them back to the bracket again. We're going to have a crossmember that's going to spread frame to frame. That's going to run right along this, and we don't want to damage these lines. Just take a pair of channel locks or whatever you got to try and push that up in there. It's just a push fastener. Just like that, and we'll have these white ones also. There.Now we'll take these. We'll pull them down underneath like this. Then we'll just zip tie them right back to the bracket again. We just want to make sure they're on the bottom so they don't get damaged. Now we're going to take our crossmembers. We're going to take our 5/8 carriage bolts, and we're going to put them in the top two holes. This is going to go towards the hat channel, and you're going to see square holes. Drop them in like that. For our rear one, two round holes. You're going to see two square holes next to it. I'm going to drop them in the two square holes.Now we're going to install our crossmembers. We're going to start with the rear one. We're going to take the passenger side, and we're going to go up over our frame rail. We're going to maneuver it in like that. You want to make sure the flat side of this is towards your hat channel. Your bolts are on the top side. Slide it back up against your hat channel. Now we're going to take the front. Your front is going to have an extra bracket on it here with two extra holes. This time we're going to go over the fuel tank on the driver side first. That slid all the way up as far as we can go, like that.Now we're going to have two brackets like this that are going to go on the outside of our frame rails. How you can tell them apart is our driver side, this section here is going to be towards the front of the vehicle. You're going to have a flange at the top that's going to sit overtop of the frame rail. We'll take it and we'll slide it on like this. We're going to line up those two slotted holes at the top going through our crossmembers like that. Put on a conical tooth washer and then a nut. Passenger side, you can go ahead and put it on all the way. Driver side, I'm going to make a suggestion.We're going to have a U-bolt. Let's go ahead and sit this up here in place real quick. We're going to have a U-bolt that's got to go around our frame rail. Then it's going out through the bottom and top hole, and we're going around the back side of this. Our fuel tank is sitting right here on this vehicle, so what we're going to do is there's hard lines that run right on the inside of our frame rail right here. We're not going to put our hardware on here. We're actually going to take this and we're going to slide this across from our back so we can get our U-bolt up behind in between our frame and our gas tank, to get it on there first.So, if you look right here, these are two hard lines. What we don't want is we don't want our U-bolt to go around them because we're going to tighten that bolt now. We're going to go right in between because we want to go right up against our frame rail. We're going to slide it up like this. We'll get it turned. Just like that. One thing I do want to mention before we get our bracket on. This bolt right here, there's a plate that runs right down like this for our fuel tank. When you put your U-bolt in, you have to make sure that the top side goes down underneath of it and comes out over here.If you don't, that U-bolt's going to come out over here, and you're not going to be able to hit the hole. So, just make sure when you're feeding it up from the bottom, you get on the back side of that bracket. Now we can slide this in place, and it's going to be easier here on the driver side if you can get the U-bolt in when you slide the front on. Now, for our hardware here, it's going to be the same as the back. We're going to use a conical tooth washer. You want to make sure the teeth are facing towards the hitch or towards the bracket, and then a hex nut.Again, just loosely install it, and then for our U-bolt hardware, a flat washer, lock washer, and then a nut. On our brackets you're going to see a square hole. You're going to take one of your carriage bolts, and you're going to put it right through the hole in the frame. Now, from underneath, we're going to take this large spacer block, and we're going to slide our carriage bolt out just enough that we can get the spacer block in between our frame like that. Then we're going to put on a conical tooth washer, teeth facing towards the frame, and then a nut. Then you're going to repeat that same process on the other side.Next what we need to do, because we had a plastic bed liner, it's going to be easier to take it out. Our plastic bed liners aren't always centered on the bed, so we want to make sure when we drill our hole that it's going to be centered for our Gooseneck. Now that we've pulled it out, we're going to measure from the edge of our bed up per the instructions, and we're just going to put a dot, and I'm just using a paint marker. You can use any type of device that'll mark on metal. Then we need to measure and find our center between our wheel wells. Okay.So, it looks like our factory mark in the bed is going to be our center mark for our Gooseneck or for the hole we're going to be drilling. Now we'll take our 3-1/2" hole saw bit with our drill bit, and we're going to drill through that. What I suggest to keep . because what's going to happen when your teeth start hitting that metal is this is going to kick, and if you're not holding it, it can kick and it can hurt you. So, what we have is we have a board like this made. You just take a piece of plywood, drill the hole in it so this blade will fit in there. It'll keep this blade from moving around.If you take your foot, your right foot, put it up against the handle and hold it. When those teeth start going in, it won't kick the drill. I'm going to take a file and run it around this inside edge just to clean off any of the burs. Then I'm going to take some paint, some Rust-Oleum paint, and spray that bare metal to prevent any rust or corrosion later on. Now we're going to slide our center section into place. We're going to come over the top of our exhaust here. I'm going to let it rest there for just a second.We're going to have to get the hitch in this front one first because we've got to go overtop of this bracket, and if we don't, we're not going to have any room to get it in there. So, see if we can kind of wedge this enough to get that in that hole. There we go. Just like that. Then we'll just line up our other ones. inaudible 00:11:02 the hole like that. I'll get one in here. I'll get one in here. Get our carriage bolts in first. That'll help hold it up in place. Our bolts that we just put in here, they're going to get the conical tooth washer. Again, teeth facing towards the hitch, and then a hex nut. Then we're going to take a flat washer and a lock nut for our bolts coming down from the top.With a 24 millimeter socket, we're going to tighten and torque all of our hardware to our center section first. We're going to tighten that or torque it to the specifications in the instructions. Once you've tightened and torqued all of your center section, then you're going to tighten your brackets to your crossmembers, and then your brackets to your frame, and then your U-bolts. Next, go ahead and reinstall your liner. What we're going to do is we're going to go underneath. We're going to drill a hole up through the center of our Gooseneck hitch. That'll give us the center here. Then we can come up top and we'll make our hole just a little bit bigger than our Gooseneck hitch.Next we're going to drill up for our safety chain loops or rings. It's kind of hard to see here with the camera, but if look right here how the corrugation drops, we want to be in the lower corrugation when we drill up through the bed. The lower part of the corrugation is going to be right here on this side. We're going to be using this slot, and this one right here, and then on this side we're going to be using this slot and this slot. I'm going to drill a pilot hole up first, because remember we have our bed liner. I'm going to try and get it centered here. We need to get a pilot hole in all four holes.Now what I need to do is I need to cut out my bed liner so that my U-bolt safety chain loops will fit down flat up against the bed. You can kind of see how I have it marked here. I'm just going to cut out right on the backside of the hole. I am going to have to make my holes a little bit wider, but I'm going to try and keep my bed cover close to it as much as possible. What I did is I shoved a board in underneath to raise it up so that I don't cut into the bed. I'm just going to use a Dremel tool to cut it. Then we'll do the same thing for this side. It should . Those will fit right down in there.What we'll do is we'll leave it like this. We're going to drill our holes bigger. We might have to modify this just a little bit more, maybe cut it just a little bit bigger, so you can reach down in there and grab it, but we'll worry about that when we get to it. Now we need to open our holes up to at least 9/16. So, you can use a 9/16 drill bit. I'm going to use a step bit because I like to open them up just a little bit bigger to make sure that my U-bolt safety chain loops slide in and out pretty easy. Like that. We're going to do the same thing over on this side. We're going to clean all of our debris out, and then we're going to spray the bare metal with the clear coat again.Now we'll take our flat washer, our spring, and then our lock nut. Then when we tighten them, we want to tighten them until at least we show two to three threads. Now I'm going to install our handle. We're going to start by putting on the rubber grip first. Slide it on just like that. Then we're going to go from the outside of the frame rail, over the top of it like that, and we're going to line up the two holes. Our two holes lined up, then we're going to put in our pin.See here I cut out a little section because my rubber handle was actually hitting this, and it was starting to tear it up. Now you can reinstall your exhaust, reinstall your spare tire, then you're ready to go. That'll do it for a look at and installation on the Draw Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Installation Kit on our 2013 Ford F-250 Super Duty.

In the words of Ace Ventura - Pet Detective... Like a Glove! I was in UPS delivery zone 1 - which was suppose to be 1 day delivery.... Boom - Nailed it. Got it when they said I would. I'm sure the manual says this some place but don't forget to wear safety googles! (not to be confused with the interweb search giant). My rustyish pup potty trained me in the eye before I said "self..." Anywho- i pooched my shopping cart order by originally ordering 2 of this hitches- only needed one. Called customer service and to my surprise- I got service! The super awesome representative only shipped 1 and credited my account and still got the order out the door in time for the UPS commitment. Will order again from these professionals again. Thank you etrailer!! 643630

This is the third Draw Tite goose neck hitch we have installed. The previous two were on half ton trucks. There was a lot more room to work on this F250. The hitch worked well and went in without a lot of issues. The install instructions were a little unclear around what had to be completed to prepare for the install with some of the vacuum lines. The brackets on the F250 we had did not match the diagrams and pictures included with the hitch. Also there has to be a lot of care taken with the U bots to position them correctly and not pinch anything. Etrailer was great to work with and had really quick shipping. I will continue to buy from these guys. 756262

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose in Gooseneck


This hitch was surprisingly easy to install on my 2013 F150 Crew Cab though I did have to buy a large holesaw for the job. I was able to use the 5,000lb Air Lift bags with the internal jounce bumpers but I don't think that the 2,000lb bags would work. Without the internal jounce bumpers that have to be put in a different place. I would have preferred to use the 2,000lb bags because I believe that they give a smoother ride. I also use a ball with a 5" setback for cab clearance on my horse trailer and 5.5ft bed combination with good results. It would have been nice if they made a hitch with a setback for shorter beds but other than that it is great. 582219

The product arrived in about 2 days. When my husband opened it and went through the parts with the diagram he noticed that 2 carriage bolts were missing and had to go to Menard's to purchase them to complete the assembly. I sent an email about this matter to customer service. Other than that I was very pleased with the Draw-Tite hitch and ease of ordering and of course the free shipping! 638647

Pretty good hitch, I’ve had and installed several gooseneck hitches and this one wasn’t bad to install. It’s well built and appears to exceed my trucks towing capacity, I advise to go ahead and lift the back of the bed up at least 2” to make it easier to install and align the hitch. I installed this on a 2018 GMC 2500 HD. 575037

Product is a great fit for my 2016 Ram 2500. The installation videos are dead on which allowed me to install the hitch myself. DIY savings was approx. $125. Tip: In addition to bending the wire on the nut plates, use plastic zip ties to secure the wires. This will absolutely prevent any rattling noise. 400447

Easy install once you get past the kinda confusing drawings. The safety hooks are pretty short, I just have the nuts flush with threads but can't get the hooks under them. I will have to look for longer ones. Took 3 hrs to install with having to remove hard tonneau cover and bed liner and reinstalling and clean up. Thought it would be worse!! The isolation tape they send with the hitch is kind of cheesy, hopefully it works. Was a great price! 435890

Hitch works great, no problems with the ball or linkages freezing up. Everything seems good. Have used it to pull a cattle trailer 12+ times this year.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose in Gooseneck


Went in relatively easy, relative because I did this by myself (at 72) without removing anything except a small bracket above the pumpkin. Just used a piece of all-thread (for the length) down through the bed and the hitch to hold it up to attach the bolts. Everything fit perfectly and it is easier with two people and removing half of the truck but I've always hated taking things loose if I don't have to, and besides, it was a challenge. Sprayed any bare metal with Trim (flat black) spray that matches the sprayed in bed liner perfectly. Biggest pain was having to buy both the hole saw and drill bit despite having an extensive (but obviously not complete) collection of both types. This is my first gooseneck that didn't have the turnover ball type, but it looks to be superior since you have to climb in the bed anyway to flip the ball and I've had problems with the ball freezing in place after having not been used in a while. 606582

This is the second Hide a Goose hitch that I have installed. Once you have lowered your spare tire the hitch goes in smoothly and relatively easily. This hitch went in on my 3500 dually in the morning and was being used by lunch, I have never had a problem with my other truck with the same style hitch, and if I buy another truck this will be the brand that I buy again. 238947

Good hitch. Love the drop and lock ball way more than my old hide-a-goose turnover ball. Installed it myself and only had to unbolt the brake like bracket. Left spare tire and exhaust in place. Put the ball in the center piece and slid it up and had my neighbor hold it by the ball while I put the conicals and nuts on. 519709

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose in Gooseneck


The only reason this product got 1 star is because I had to give it one star to rate it! Stupid system. The product I bought was the (Cequent) Draw-Tite 9460-48 gooseneck hitch. This is the worse product I ever bought. It is rated on everyone's website as having a 30,000 lb capacity. When you get the hitch you see all of these stickers on it saying DO NOT EXCEED 22,000 LBS. Initially the manufacturer said it was a mistake: they put the wrong stickers on it. When asked for new 30,000 lb stickers they admitted it was only rated for 22,000 lbs. I won't buy any Cequent Products ever. Or any of the Brand Names they sell. Draw_Tite is one of their brands. 315874


Comments
Thanks for your review and your purchase, Francis. In these cases, the installation brackets are rated for 22,000 lbs and the ball and center section is rated for 30,000 lbs. The towing capacity is limited to the lowest rated component.

Hitch performs well. Nice heavy duty steel. I have 4 star bc the measurement for the hitch wasn't quite right on my truck. From end of bed to center was about an 1/8" off. I had to cut out some extra on the cab side of the bed. Once that was done it was perfect. The magnet Drawtite supplies is just pathetic. I threw it away and made my own cover. As far as performance and ease of use I would recommend. There is a YouTube video etrailer has that is also very helpful. I referred to it a couple of times the instructions didn't make sense or I just wanted to check direction and that I was using the proper bolts. In one part the instructions say to use a washer but in the video they do not. I chose to go without. If you just want a good reliable gooseneck hitch for a few $$ less this is the one. 433787

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose in Gooseneck


Hitch seems to be built fairly well as far as the head and rail kit. The side plates for the frame are not even as thick as my frame rail. Didn't like that. Also a major turn off to this hitch, on my truck, a 2001 dodge 2500 short bed, the carriage bolts that hold the head to the rails, the heads hit the bed floor, enough to where the bed does not sit flush on the frame. 4 1 inch holes had to be drilled in the bed to let the bolt heads through. Also used a hare bigger hole saw than 3.5 to give some wiggle room. But the bolts hitting the floor needs to be addressed by draw tite. Wouldn't recommend for a dodge pickup 191838

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose in Gooseneck


The customer service was spectacular which is great to find nowadays. The hitch I had a couple issues with however. Issue 1 was the the u-bolts for the safety chains are to short. I hooked up my trailer jumped in the back and couldn't get the chains in the loops without taking the nuts off the bolts putting on the chains and having my girlfriend push them down while i put the nuts on (I have a plastic bedliner which might have been the main issue here). Issue 2 is that online it says that I can tow 30,000lbs with this hitch. However when this hitch came in it said in multiple places in the mounting kit not to exceed 17,000lbs which makes me kind of nervous since I have to pull some heavy loads On the bright side though the hitch installed easier then i thought it would and I found etrailers YouTube video very helpful for it. I used it to pull a 13,000lb trailer this weekend and had no issues with it I'd probably buy this hitch again just because it's significantly cheaper then the blue ox and b&w hitches but I'd like them fix the above mentioned issues 386546

  • Where to Drill the Hitch Ball Hole for the Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch on a 2014 Ford F-250
    I assume you are referring to the 3-1/2" diameter hole for the gooseneck hitch ball on the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Installation Kit part # 9460-49. If that is the case then on your 2014 Ford F-250 with the 8' long bed you will need to mark and drill a 1/4" hole 46-3/16" from the rear of the bed and centered between the wheel wells. Using a 3-1/2" diameter hole saw, enlarge the pilot hole to the final diameter hole size. When you get to the point of drilling...

  • Recommended Draw-Tite Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for 2015 Ford F-250 Diesel
    For your 2015 Ford F-250 Diesel truck that does not feature the factory rail kit, I recommend the Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 9460-49. This Draw-Tite hitch features a removable ball that can be dropped back into the hitch for storage to allow for complete bed access. It has a 30,000 pound towing capacity and a magnetic cover to protect the ball hole from dirt and grime. The included mounting hardware will use existing holes in the truck's frame, which means...

  • Hidden Gooseneck Hitch Options for 2013 Ford F-250
    In order to install a Hide-A-Ball style gooseneck hitch on your 2013 Ford F-250 you'll need an underbed installation kit and gooseneck hitch; I recommend using the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Installation Kit # 9460-49 since it allows for full truck bed access when ball is stored because the ball and safety chain loops are the only part of the hitch above the bed of the truck. The gooseneck ball on this hitch stores upside down in the hitch when it's not in use, to...

  • Gooseneck Installation Kit for a 2010 F-450 with 8 Foot Bed Crew Cab DRW 4 x 4
    The correct Gooseneck hitch and installation kit for a 2010 F-450 with 8 bed, Crew cab, DRW, 4 x 4, is the Reese Gooseneck, # 9460-49. I have linked an installation video of a Hide-A-Goose installation on a 2008 F-250 that should be similar to the installation on your F-450, but the install kit is different. You may also be interested in wiring for the bed of your 2010 F-450. The in bed wiring harness, # PK11893-11932, will plug inline with the factory wiring and install in the bed...

  • Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
    For your 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD with a Duramax the correct Hide a Goose hitch and install kit would be the part # 9465-34. This would be the correct kit regardless of your bed length. The # 9460-49 is for a Ford truck so I would not recommend it for you. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Availability of Adapter for B&W Companion to Fit Round Gooseneck Receiver on a 2006 Ford F-350
    I believe you are referring to a Tow Ready gooseneck hitch which was rebranded as "Draw-Tite" like part # 9460-49. There is a solution for you to use the sliding B&W Companion # BWRVK3400-5W in the short bed of your 2006 Ford F-350 but unfortunately there are no adapters for it to fit the round gooseneck receiver you currently have. Instead you will need to install the B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1108-5W which has the squared receiver you are needing. If you would rather not swap...
