Ball Displayed

The Hide-A-Goose gooseneck trailer hitch works to meet your heavy-duty towing needs while still allowing you to get full use out of your truck bed. The hitch installs beneath your vehicle to create a low-profile look. Even the safety-chain holders sit flush against your truck bed to take up as little room as possible. The ball easily secures in the hitch with a reinforced locking pin that is operated by a handle that installs in your truck's rear wheel well.


Handle and Storage

This hitch is called the Hide-A-Goose because of its convenient ability to hide the ball when you're not towing. To remove the ball, just pull the handle in the wheel well until it latches in the open position. Remove the ball, flip it upside down, and drop it back into the ball hole of the hitch. Then pull the handle again to release it from the open position and reengage the locking pin to secure the ball in the stowed position.


Magent Cover

Once you secure the ball in the stowed position inside the hitch, use the rubber cover to conceal the ball hole. This cover prevents dirt and debris from getting into the ball hole. This will prevent buildup that could cause the ball to seize up in the hitch.

The box for the installation brackets was busted up (I blame the shipping company for that), but all parts were there. The hitch and brackets are very well made and went easy, but it did take a little longer than I expected. I am planning on putting another gooseneck hitch on another truck I have and will definantely use etrailer again. etrailer had the best price, it came quickly, and they handle quality products. 390721

I couldn't be more pleased with this product. The instructions were very easy to understand. The only thing that was any different from what they said was that the safety chain u bolts were supposed to be in a lower corrugation of the bed but on my truck the holes were only on a upper corrugation. So, they are a 1/4" higher than they would have been, oh well. The local shop wanted to charge my buddy $500 to install a gooseneck hitch, so I decided to attempt mine at home. It went without a hitch, haha, so hopefully he will just buy one of these and buy a couple cases and some pizza. 9196

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This hitch is exactly what we needed to pull our camper. Worked great, but not the easiest to install, especially using the instructions that come with the hitch. After watching a YouTube video, which gave a much better understanding, I was able to install the hitch with a better idea of what I was doing. Do to the lack of written instructions I am giving this a 4 star instead of a 5 star. 418586

While initially I was frustrated with what was potentially going to be super slow shipping, the customer service at etrailer was fantastic. We ended up getting the hitch we ordered in a timely fashion and it came with easy to use instructions. The worst part was trying to cut the hole in the bed of the truck, but ended up working out fine. thank you etrailer! Excellent customer service. 553194

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

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

My son and I bought the Hide-a-Goose set up for his 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab. The shipping of the 111 lbs. packages (came in 2 boxes) was fast! Upon arrival, the instructions were right-on and easy to follow. We took our time and the installation went off without a hitch(pun intended!). We purchased the "no drilling required" kit and the only holes needed were through the truck bed. George kept us updated and we really appreciate the guys at etrailer. I highly recommend their products and would most definitely buy from etrailer again! Thanks guys! Leon W. 246677

I have bought from etrailer for many years now. Many hitches from a 2005 Toyota highlander hitch and wiring, to a 2012 Chrysler town and country hitch and wiring, brake controller to my most recent one a 2008 dodge ram mega cab gooseneck hitch. Every part I have bought have fit without any modification. The YouTube videos are specially helpful. I've recieved my shipment a few days ago which was way faster then I expected. Today i woke up ready to install it, I read the instructions and watched the YouTube video went under my truck bed and started working on it. I did mess up on the hole for the ball but that was my oops. Very satisfied. 501465

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


Very pleased with the simple design. I Choose this hitch based on the cross bar and frame plate design. It looked easier to install than some other brands, and it was, a simple painless install. The cross bars easily slipped over the frame rails and under the pickup bed without a fus. The cross bars have threaded ends built in (like bolts welded in the corners of the angle steel) that allow you to loosely hang the side brackets off the cross rails while getting everything fitted. (so you don't need 3 hands) The U-Bolts for the frame rail helps avoid having to drill holes in the frame for additional bolts. The ball design has good clearances to the pocket so this ball should not be getting rusted in place. The simple spring loaded pin lock for the ball also has good clearances and just pulls straight in and out of the ball to lock and unlock from the wheel well handle. Flipping the ball over to "hide away" means the bed can still be free and clear for loading materials. Cutting the 3.5" hole in the bed was made simple by accurate easy measurement instructions and a readily available hole saw from the hardware store. The carriage bolt hardware means you don't need a wrench on the backside of the bolt when tightening the nuts. Great Product, excellent design, easy to install and use. 431243

under bed gooseneck mount 2017 RAM 3500 reg cab diesel 2WD I installed it myself sitting on the ground with the spare tire out. a bit challenging for one small guy . But got-er done. Only residual problem, it ever so slighty touches the exhaust pipe when starting the engine. Hauled my 26' 10000 lb trailer to Michigan and back. Like it much better than the "universal" mount in my 96 Ram 2500 CTD. 729915

I've had this reciever on my tundra in conjunction with the Anderson utlimate hitch for our 5th wheel for around a year. It's been a great setup, install took a few hours for the typical DIY'er thanks to YouTube. My only gripe is that the pin release handle naturally sits a a weird angle the way it fits between the bed and truck frame and makes for a sometimes difficult engage/disengage action. All in all great hide away hitch, the release handle just needs to be a better designed to suite this particular truck 681185

Once I finally got it in there it works great. This thing was a serious pain to put in by myself and I have good tools, a nice garage and it was still a pain. The measurement the directions gives for your hole was off by about a 1/2” for me. That’s why you drill a small hole first to make sure it’s centered. I had the hitch brackets tight to the bed crossmember and the measurement was still off. Other than being a little time consuming to put in it works great. I just wish they’d give you the option to upgrade to the offset ball at a discounted price. 654448

I couldn't have picked a better hitch for the price! I took it to a local business (Carolina welders, Laurinburg NC) and it took him only an hour to install and it installed perfectly! In two days I had my horse trailer hooked to it and I haven't had an issue since! And when I'm not hauling a trailer I easily flip the ball and I slide my dogbox in! I was skeptic about ordering but I do not regret my decision ANY!!! Love this hitch! 651717

This hitch is confirmed to fit your vehicle and is basically the same hitch you referenced except with an install kit that is designed for your vehicle. I attached an install video for this product for you to check out also.

  • Which Draw-Tite Gooseneck Hitch Fits 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 Short Bed
  • The correct Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch with Custom Installation Kit for your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed (as well as 8 foot bed) is # 9464-38. This includes both the hitch head and the complete hardware and brackets to work with your truck. See installed photo below. The 9461 (now obsolete) and 9460 are Draw-Tite part numbers which correspond to the Gooseneck head only and from my research, no installation kit for either was/is compatible with your 2003 Ram...
