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 magnetic 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.

Video Transcript for Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2010 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on our 2010 Chevrolet Silverado, were installing our Hide-A-Goose under-bed gooseneck trailer hitch with installation kit, part number 9465-54. We have our gooseneck in place. The nice thing about it is weve got our spring loaded safety straps here so you can put your chains on that. You have here all locked in place. It also allows for easy storage. Compared to a fifth wheel, you can still use the bed of your truck in this position and you dont really lose any space in your bed. With the fifth wheel, you still have the big massive neck in place where you do lose some of that and even when you take that out, you still have the rail sticking up pretty high.

This does give you more space, more use of your bed. I have your weight limit than your typical hitch on the back of your truck. Well show you how it works. Weve got our lever here. Well pull out towards the wheel and Ill twist it back, lock it in the open position, grab our little loop here, pull our ball out, set it in place. Now, I can come over to our lever here and Ill just flip it down.

It locks itself in place. All right, now to put our ball in the storage position. Ive got our hitch locked open. Ill pull our ball up. Ill flip it over. Now, it goes in one way.

Set it down in there and replace our cover thatll help keep out water, dirt and debris. Keep it smoother actually. Now, I can go lock it in a closed position. Ill just flip it down, it locks itself in place. Now, this is what it looks like after its all installed.

Now, well show you how to install it. All right. Get ready for installation. Weve taken our spare tire down and weve taken off our 2 rear tires. Our next step, were going to come in here. Weve got a bracket up here for our brake lines that well have to loosen up. We got 2 bolts on top and our bolts is 13 millimeter. When you get these out, I like to stick them on the back just so I dont lose them. Heres our bracket, we just loosened up. Well end up moving this when we do our installation. All right, next step, we need to get our exhaust out of the way. I went ahead and sprayed some lube in there just to get loosened up a little bit. Then well try and pry them off. Sometimes it helps to stick a screwdriver through and stretch out the rubber a little bit. It might be a little tough at first. We also got to take this other one off, but before I do that, Im going to get the strap so that this doesnt drop. Were going to go ahead and cut our heat shield and Im going to make a cut behind this cross brace and then Im going to cut across here as well. All right. Ive got 4 bolts holding my bed on the driver side. Im just going to loosen the bolts up. On the passenger side, Im going to take them completely out. For this Im using an 18-millimeter impact socket. According to the instructions, youll get the measurement. This is a short bed although they cut off the front end, it still measures out right. Im using the short bed measurement. It also is going to be a center hole gooseneck hitch so I want to make sure that my hole is centered. All right. Once you have that marked out, youll take a quarter inch drill bit and drill a hole. Assembling this, I want to make sure that our piece is lined up. Were going to have the 90-degree towards the bottom. Were going to have our flat side facing up. Were going to insert 4 bolts and our cool tooth washer and a nut. Ill insert my bolt. I want to put the teeth flat side facing the top of the bolt and then add our nut. Now, once I have all these in place, Im going to go to the instructions for our torque setting. All right. Im using a jack to help me lift up the bed so I can slide our craft piece in here. Im looking at these instructions. It says we need to cut a piece of it here because it drops down here in the center. Im going to take my tin snips. Now, I can try and feed the rest of this over. Now, to make sure, Ive got this pitch in the right spot. Im going to take my outside frame brackets and line them on each side. Then I can check my whole. All right. For test fitting purposes, were going to put an even gap on each side of this and were going to have the big end towards the front. It looks about right. Now, Im going to do the same thing on the other side, to make sure the bracket is lined up. All right. Now that we have everything verified, were going to take our hole saw. Referring to our instructions for the right size and Im going to drill out my hole. Now, we can slide our hitch back in place and make sure its in the right spot. All right. Now, I put my plate in place. Again, the thick side towards the front of the cab. We have 4 black conical tooth washers which well put on. Teeth facing towards the center and then our nuts. Weve got our long bracket here. Were need to grab our long bolt. Its a carriage bolt and all that means is we got the rounded edge with the square fitting, stick that through my home and stick it through this top hole. Ill grab one of the brass colored conical tooth washers which well put on, teeth facing towards the center and then our nuts. Weve got our long bracket here. Well need to grab our long bolt. Its a carriage bolt and all that means is it got the rounded edge with the square fitting, stick that through my home and stick it through this top hole. Ill grab one of the brass colored conical tooth washers, the teeth facing towards the center again and a nut. Now, Ill do the same thing for the bottom side on that. I used my fish wire here. Im to stick this through the frame. Now, that I come through the other side, Im going to take my metal piece here. Stick it on. I can actually feed that into the hole now and then Ill take my bolt and thread it on to our fish wire and feed that in. Were going to take the thicker block here, feed that on to your fish wire and then feed it back through here. Thatll give us the space that we need. All right. Now that weve got the bolt through, Im holding it from the backside. Im going to put a flash washer on and a lock washer. Then I can feed my nut on. Im going to repeat the same process on the other side with all our bolts. Im just snagging these up for now. With these, I want to do the same tightening on top and bottoms. Ive got this flush. I want to get this flush and then Ill switch bolts again to make sure Im tightening it evenly. All right. Now, that Ive got everything snagged up, Im going to go through instructions for the torque settings. Im going to torque these 2 first and then Ill come back and change my torque settings for the other one according to the instructions. All right. Before I torque these 3 bolts, Im going to take our 2 bolts that we took out from our bed frame here. That will wind up our bed with the frame of our truck to make sure everything is lined up tightened down and then we can come back to these bolts. Now, that I have our bed attached again, we can torque this down. All right. Now, Ill repeat the same thing on the other side. All right. Now, Im using these 2 slots. Im going to find where our ribs, these guys are lowest. In my hole, Im going to stick my finger in. I can feel it drop or go up I should say. Here its low and here its high. Im going to use the low side here. Im going to take my half inch drill bit. Im not going to drill through with this, Im just going to mark my hole in both of my slots. Now, Im just going to take an 8-inch drill bit and drill a pilot hole so I can drill down from the top side. The same process I did with these on the passenger side. Im going to repeat over here on the driver side. Now, Ill get on top of the bed and drill down from the top. Now, with this side, I can place my u-bolt in. We have 2 different sizes here. You can see that one side has a shorter stud to it. Thats in case theres an exhaust that runs underneath there. Thats just for clearance. Now, Ill repeat the same process I did for this side over here. Now, that we have our u-bolts placed in place, well take our Christmas tree looking springs and Ill put the thicker side or the base of the tree facing up. Ill take a flat washer and put in place. Then Ill take a nut. Lets hold that altogether. Well do the same for each of the 4 studs sticking down. Im going to tighten these down and we dont have to tighten it all the way down because we do want these to spring up. What Im going to do is Im going to tighten this down just until 1 or 2 of our threads is showing through on the other side of the nut. Now, that weve got our u-bolts and their nuts on place, go ahead and reinstall our exhaust. All right. I slid my rubber sleeve over our handle here. Im just going to insert this over the top and then come underneath and put our pin in place. All right. With our pin in place, I can pull our handle out then lock that in place and then I can put our ball in from the top. Our last bracket install is going to be the brake line bracket which was the first thing we took off. Im going to wind up the holes. Now, this isnt going to want to go back in place very easily because we had to move the brake lines down about half an inch right over here. When youre putting it in place, just be aware of that. You may have to do some slight bending but you definitely want to be careful because those are your brake lines and you dont want to clamp those off. Thats it for our Hide-A-Goose under-bed gooseneck trailer hitch, part number 9465-54 on our 2010 Chevrolet Silverado.Speaker 2: You could find this and everything else right here at etrailer.com.

Great product, I watched etrailers videos on installation of the hitch before it arrived and began disassembley of the truck, the video is very helpful in understanding the instructions with the hitch, the hitch arrived early in the day on the arrival date etrailer gave me, so I was able to finish installation that day. Thanks etrailer, Jason 463727

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

Measurements from back of box to drill hole for ball is missing its mark. A 1/4 inch isn't much, but when you want close tolerances, it's a lot. 45 inches is the mark. Other than that, great hitch! 698552

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

I am very pleased with this product. My dad and I did the installation in an afternoon. It is not the easiest thing to do, so have at least another person to help you. You will need a torque wrench. I installed on a 2005 Chevy Silverado Z71 and it's a great fit. 350200

Fast shipping. Install was moderately easy. The instructions say you can cut the hat channel on the bed or lift one side of the bed up to install, tried cutting the channel on my 2013 Siverado Z71 1500 and didn't have room to roll the angle irons over to line up the bolte. Just jack one side of the bed up and it will install easily. I have used it to haul tractors and campers and no problems with the hitch whatsoever. 344499

Good unit handles the tow well. Issue is that b/c of the way the brackets are, it was very difficult to find a air leveling system that was able to be bolted on w/o modification. I had to roll with a HellWigg system versus different ones. But over-all satisfied. 276179

The hitch arrived much quicker than anticipated!!:) Installed in half a days time if you include removing truck bed etc. and is proving to be a great quality reliable product.

Very eager to make further purchases from this site to upgrade things on the same trailer!! 218462

  • Which Draw Tite Gooseneck Hitch Fits 1999 GMC C/K Style Truck
    You are correct unfortunately because since you have an older body style 1999 GMC truck 2500 the Draw Tite gooseneck hitch you should have ordered is the part # 9465-40 as the part # 9465-54 fits the Sierra models which are the newer style and not your older C/K style of truck.

I will also say that if you were able to sell the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # 9465-54 that you have now it may be more cost effective to just buy the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # 9465-56 instead but the choice...

  • Location of Hide-A-Goose Hitch Ball in 2012 Chevrolet Silverado with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    On your 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with the 5-1/2 foot bed the Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 9465-54 will install 44-3/4 inches from the rear edge of the truck's bed. That is where the center of hole will be. With such a short bed truck I suggest using the 5 Inch Offset Ball # 19308 as well. This moved the pivot poing 5 inches rearward to give you extra clearance from your truck's cab.

  • Solution for Lifted 2009 Chevy Silverado that Allows Gooseneck Towing
    Body lifts basically make installing a gooseneck hitch impossible as the bed of the truck will be taller than where the ball should come through. Plus with a truck that sits as tall as yours you will have a nearly impossible time towing a gooseneck trailer level without bed interference. The lift kits basically have to go so that you can install the # 9465-54 and tow a trailer. With just the suspension lift the hitch will install, but even that the truck is going to sit too high.

  • Recommendation for 20,000 Pound 5th Wheel Hitch to Use with Draw-Tite Gooseneck Hitch
    I may have a solution for you, however the Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 9465-54 that you have installed in your Chevy Silverado is not compatible with the B&W Companion Hitch # BWRVK3500. This is because the B&W Companion is designed to fit the square gooseneck hole that the B&W gooseneck hitches provide, and it will not fit the round gooseneck hole on your Draw-Tite unit. There is not an adapter available to make the two systems compatible with each other....

  • Availability of Taller Gooseneck Ball for Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose on Silverado with 3" Body Lift
    The only taller gooseneck hitch ball available that will work with your Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Hitch # 9465-54 is the Draw-Tite # 19306. The replacement ball only provides a 1 inch height increase over the standard ball though so it's still not going to be enough to offset the 3 inch body lift on your Silverado. As you discovered, a body lift on a truck prevents a standard gooseneck hitch ball from protruding through the truck bed to allow for proper attachment with the trailer. In...

  • Is the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch A Bolt-On Fit for a 2011 Chevy 1500
    Yes, the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Custom Installation Kit part # 9465-54 is a direct bolt-on fit for your 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with the 6-1/2' bed (non-flare/stepside). However, you will need to drill into the bed floor for the hitch ball opening and safety chain loops but I am sure this is of no surprise to you. If you don't already have a 3-1/2" hole saw for the hitch ball opening you can use the 3-1/2" Hole Saw for Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch Installation...

  • Gooseneck Hitch, Wiring, Brake Controller and Spring Kit on 2014 Silverado 1500 with 5-1/2-Foot Bed
    For your 5-1/2-foot bed 2014 Silverado 1500 I suggest the Draw-Tite Gooseneck hitch # 9465-54 along with the Offset Ball # 19308 and wiring harness # 20110. An install video is included for you. For a trailer brake controller I suggest the highly-reliable Prodigy P3 # 90195 along with the quick-connect install harness # 3016 which plugs in under the dash. The P3 offers easier installation and set-up than most other controllers and it has a legendary reputation for reliability. An install...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Adapter Compatible w/ Reese Hide-A-Goose Under Bed Gooseneck Hitch
    My Curt representative tells me that they don't offer an X5 adapter model that would be compatible with your Draw-Tite # 9465-54 under bed gooseneck hitch. If you have a long bed truck, the Draw-Tite Hi-Rise Gooseneck to 5th wheel hitch adapter, part # 9480 would work well for you. Another option would be the Reese Goosebox, which would replace the existing 5th wheel's pin box. The Goosebox will allow the 5th wheel to connect directly to the gooseneck ball, without an adapter needed....

  • Gooseneck Rail Kit for a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 6-1/2 or 8 foot Bed
    The Hide-A-Goose Rail Kit Only, # 50111, that you referred to is the correct installation kit for your 2006 Chevrolet 1500 Silverado with 6-1/2 or 8 foot bed, but according to the manufacturer this kit will work with the older 63102 hide a goose head only and will not work with current model head, # 9465. The older head is no longer available. If you currently have a Hide-A-Goose head that is older than approximately 2008, then this may be the kit you need. The current gooseneck trailer...

  • Where Is Hole Drilled In Bed Of 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LD Short Bed For Gooseneck Hitch
    The 4 inch hole location that is to be drilled in the bed of your 2005 Chevrolet Silverado depends on the hitch you plan to install. They vary by manufacturer, so it would be difficult to tell you just one location until you choose the hitch you want to install. For example, if you are interested in the Curt Gooseneck Hitch, part # C630-652, The center of the 4 inch hole will be 44 1/16 inches from the back edge of the bed. You would need to hook a tape measure on the end of the bed...

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2000 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed
    Draw-Tite gooseneck trailer hitch # 9465-34 fits a 2001 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed but is not listed for the 2000 model year. Typically the 3/4 and 1-ton models are a year behind as far as design compared to the 1/2 tons. If we go by that then a 2000 2500 should look more like a 1999 C/K series. For a 2000 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed you would need # 9465-54. In 2000 I do not believe the 2500 models were called HDs. But you could actually have a 2001. The build date is likely...

  • Where Does Draw Tite Trailer Hitch Install in Bed of 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
    I checked with Draw Tite and I have instructions on how and where to install one of their gooseneck hitches but it's actually the part # 9465-54 and not the # 9465-34 that you referenced. Here's how to find where to install the hitch: The hitch ball must be located along the truck’s fore/aft centerline. The hitch ball centerline must be located above and forward of the rear axle of the truck. Adequate clearance must be provided between the gooseneck trailer and the rear of the vehicle...

    Yes, you can add a gooseneck trailer hitch to your 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 with the 5-1/2 foot bed. You can use the Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose, # 9465-54. I confirmed with Draw-Tite that it will fit the 5-1/2 foot bed models. I have linked a video showing installation on an older Silverado to give you an idea of how it installs.

  • Location of Center of Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Ball on a 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71
    First, on a 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500, you would need to use # 9465-54. The installation kit for the hitch your referenced is not designed for the 1500. For 9465-54 the measurement is 44-3/4 inches from the rear edge of the bed forward. See instructions link. The ball should be centered in most every case either directly above the rear axle or a few inches in front of the rear axle. Any further back than this and the truck will ride high in the front causing steering and braking problems.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    First, for a gooseneck trailer you will need a gooseneck hitch in your 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 5-1/2 foot bed. I recommend the Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose, # 9465-54. Then, to get more clearance, you could replace the coupler on the trailer with one that has an offset. Coupler # BWTEXA4200 has a 10 inch offset and is going to be the best chance for being able to make tight turns.
