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 Draw-Tite Gooseneck - Below the Bed - 9465-54 Review

Today were going to review part number 9465-54. This is the Draw Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the installation kit. This gooseneck trailer hitch is perfect for your heavy duty towing needs. This part number here is specifically for the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 and 2500 light duty trucks with either a 6 -foot bed or an 8-foot bed. Now as far as the year and models they will fit, we do recommend to go to the product page on our website of this part number and at the bottom of the page youll see a listing of the years and models of vehicles this will fit. This is an underbed design which will insure full access to the truck bed.

This is all underneath the truck bed. This is attached to the frame rails on the truck. Only the ball which is a 2 5/16 size hitch ball, and the safety chain loops which are spring loaded are visible in the truck bed when the hitch is set up to tow. Now this hitch ball will flip over and store upside down in this round sleeve and under the bed when its not in use. You just use this magnetic cover to put on top to keep any dirt or grime from getting into that round sleeve.

Now on the side here youll have convenient access to this durable grip handle right here. This will be accessible in the wheel well of the drivers side of your vehicle. This will help you easily engage and disengage the ball. Basically if you just pull out on the handle move it to the side it will latch into place and stay open allow you to slide open the hitch ball, and again to store it we mentioned you just flip it upside down, drop it into place, engage it, and its locked into place, put your cover on and youre pretty much flush. Truck beds all open you have full access to it.

Im going to open it up and I do want to show you this hitch has a round sleeve and the round shank on the hitch ball, and what that does is that will provide a tighter fit than some of the square design goosenecks. That will help reduce the rattle and boost the durability of the hitch. Now one other feature if you look on it there is a slot right here that goes all the way up and down the shank of this. Basically that slot needs to line up with the pin in the sleeve, and if you look right over here theres a pin that sort of juts out a little bit. That will allow it to line up with the slot and drop into place, and you can lock it into place.

If by chance you moved it and tried to do it that way, as you can see the pin will keep it from dropping in so it does need to line up with that pin to drop into place then lock it into place. This is a custom rail kit with the side mounting brackets. These are designed specifically for your vehicle. There is usually no drilling, welding, or bed removal required. Now all these parts are black powder coat steel which is a sturdy and corrosion resistant finish. The towing capacity on this part, we do recommend to see your vehicles owners manual because these rails and mounting brackets will be rated to match the manufacturers tow rating. The head unit right here thats bolted in the middle, it is rated at 30,000 pounds gross towing weight capacity with a 7,500 pound vertical load limit. This head unit will install to these rails, as you can see theres two bolts here, two back here. So it installs using the four 5/8-inch diameter Grade A carriage bolts, and when installing this you will need to cut a 3 diameter hole for this round sleeve to fit through, along with four 9/16 holes for the spring loaded safety chain u-bolts to fit through. Now just to show you again, its in the tow position. The balls locked into place. If youre done towing and you just want to hide it, pull open the handle, slide this out, flip it over, drop it down into place, engage your handle so its locked and wont come out, put your magnetic cover on, pretty much have full access to your truck bed, and when it comes time to hook up your gooseneck, just remove your cover, disengage the handle, pull up on your hitch ball, turn it over, drop it into place, engage it. Now youre ready to tow simple as that. This does come with a limited lifetime warranty and that should do it for the review on part number 9465-54 the Draw Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with this installation kit.

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

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.

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. The wheel well handle is proving to be very handy as well especially if you are unhooking, etc alone. Very eager to make further purchases from this site to upgrade things on the same trailer!! 218462

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

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

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

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

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

Fast shipping. Everything fit perfect. Hardest thing is fishing bolts up through box frame. Need to use two screwdrivers to keep up off of bottom of frame. I installed by myself in 3-4 hours. 2 people could do it in 2. Second gooseneck hitch I have gotten from Etrailer. Will get next one frim them. I highly recommend. 166295

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.

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

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

It took me about a year to get around to putting it in... I didn't have to take out the exhaust like the video says. I have a 2012 short bed Cummins 4x4. Getting the bars in is fascinating. Everything is super heavy so you'll need help for sure. 564042

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

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

Fairly easy to install. I had to drop the spare tire and remove the heat shield, but once I did that I had plenty of room to work. You have to install the frame rails from in between the truck frame over top of the rear differential. You cannot slide them in from the side of the truck. Cutting the hole through the truck bed correctly is tricky. Mine was off about a 1/4 inch. Use a bi-metal hole saw and you'll pop right through. The rest installs pretty straight forward. 368453

Ordered the hide a ball gooseneck hitch I had it in 4 business days with the free shipping, and if that wasn't good enough I found a cheaper priced hitch on another site after I bought it, and etrailer refunded me the difference plus 5% and lowered the price online so that the customers are getting the best bang for the buck with hands down the best customer service I have encountered yet. As far as the hitch goes it comes with plenty of instructions and all the hardware and took a buddy and I 2 hours from start to finish to complete. Great product, great service 168992

Very please with the customer service and the hitch! I called etrailer.com to verify the hitch would fit my 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 dually, as I wasn't entirely sure the application was the same for a standard bed and a dually. Lindy was extremely helpful, and I was able to place my order with her right over the phone. The hitch arrived on time, and I was able to install it with no significant problems. I say 'significant problems', as the custom exhaust installed by the previous owner was in the way, but that's a problem with my truck, not the hitch. A recommendation: get a computer, or tablet, or phone, and use the video for installation. The video was (by far!) the best explanation on how to install the hitch. I used both the video and the written instructions, and occasionally the written instructions made me scratch my head. The video immediately cleared up any confusion. A word of caution, though, don't throw out the written instructions. They have the measuring distance for drilling the holes in the bed and the torque specs for the bolts. The whole installation took about four hours, from pulling the truck into the garage to putting everything away after installing the hitch. Most of that time was trying to maneuver around the non-standard exhaust, though. If my truck had the factory exhaust, I figure it would have been about two to two and a half hours for installation. The only tool I had to get was the correct size hole saw for drilling out the bed to install the ball. Everything else in the installation just requires basic hand tools and a decent socket set. Overall, it was an easy installation, and a great product. I would highly recommend this hitch, and will purchase it again if, or when, I get another truck. 504530

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

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


Great product at a great price! I measured out the 3.5" hole location as the directions said for a 8 ft bed on my 2010 Ram 3500 4X4 quad cab. I drilled the hole and deburred, Removed the rear fender well panels and proceded to slide the rails over the chasis. I had to bend the steel flange where the bed is put together during fabrication to have enough room to fit the rail between the bed and the chasis. This was only done on one side in one location. The rails slid right in and I continued on with the install. It was a little hard by myself but I managed. I did not have a lift and was lying on my back under the truck half the time. I did not have to remove my rear tires, raise the bed or remove exhaust to install. I did notice that I could have drilled the 3.5" hole about 3/8" to 1/4" less than the specified distance for perfect alignment on the chasis but all worked out well and it tows great! I'm very satisfied with my hitch and the experience with Etrailer, Thanks Etrailer! 182288

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


The product itself seems to be ok, my main problem was with the installation instructions, namely the measurement as to where to drill the hole in the bed of a 2008 Ford F250 crew cab diesel short bed. I first watched and used etrailer.com's video instructions where they installed this same hitch on a 2008 Ford F250 diesel just like mine so I thought it would be pretty accurate. Well it was except for the most important part, the measurement as to where to drill the hole in the bed. On the video it said drill at 47 7/8". I should have double checked the instructions from draw-tite but felt etrailer's video would be correct. It wasn't though. After drilling the hole and realizing it was off I looked at draw-tite's instructions which said drill hole at 46 3/16" so luckily I was able to use the hole saw again to very carefully drill a hole at 46 3/16" only to find out on my truck this was wrong also as it was too short! I was able to make it work by trimming the edges where the two holes met and so now I have an oval hole instead of a circle. I measured the center of the hole after installing it and I should have drilled the hole at around 46 5/8". If I was to do it again I would have installed the plate under the bed and tightened it up and marked on the underside of the bed the center of the hole. Then removed the hitch plate and used a punch or small drill bit to drill up from bottom of bed to mark center of hole. Just make sure you know where the center is before you drill and don't just rely on the measurement given in the instructions. Luckily this was not a new truck with a nice bed and I had a plastic bedliner that covered up my mistake! Probably should have went with the B&W my buddy installed in his truck with no problems! 160419

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


Excellent product, easy to follow directions. Videos was great help. Installers in videos make it seem a simple install. I would say if you haven't installed one before it will most likely take more time than expected. Take your time and follow directions step by step. Some unexpected encounters with my truck was a plastic channel than ran along bottom of wheel wheels on both sides that had wiring running thur them. Had to lower to install fasteners. The cross members have threaded studs on end that are painted. Take a wire brush and remove paint from the studs so nuts will go on easy. 57665

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


Decent hitch, not the first Draw-Tite product I've used. Designed well, plenty of room for adjustment built into the slots and holes of the parts. It's built heavier than I will ever be able to tow with my '07 Tundra. We're buying a 25 foot fifth wheel camper with a gooseneck adapter. Gooseneck hitches are supposed to be better for driving off road, which is a big plus for me. I have over 1000 feet of rutted gravel road and driveway to get the camper to our little retreat in the woods! I haven't towed the camper yet, but I will add comments when I do! It would have been easier to install with a lift versus working from a creeper, but it still only took four hours! I'm sure it would have been easier on a new truck as well, not as much rust! The drawing and instructions were good, but could have explained which bolts went where a bit better. I did figure it out after a bit. Worst part was fixing all the other stuff that I found when I rolled under the truck! Only negative is the magnetic "cap" to keep the dirt out. Ridiculous! It's a refrigerator magnet! Why put that cheap thing in with such a heavy duty piece of equipment? I will figure something out to cover the hitch and plug the hole in the bed. 391215


Comments

Had to remove the hitch when I had the frame replaced on my Tundra, so I had to install the hitch again! The hitch is in great shape after about 2500 miles of pulling a 6000 pound trailer. It works as advertised, was a good price, and got shipped fairly quick. If youre even slightly mechanically adept, you should have no problems with the install. Even if youre not that handy, watch videos online to figure it out! As far as the cheap magnetic cap, I found a large freeze plug and painted it black to match the bed lining! Works great!

  • 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...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 Short Bed
  • First thing you need to do is check the owners manual to determine what the towing capacities are for your 2007 GMC Sierra 1500. You will need to add up the weight of your trailer and horses and compare that figure to the capacity to determine if it would be adequate or not. For a gooseneck hitch the Draw Tite part # 9465-54 that you referenced would fit your vehicle and would work well. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

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.

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.
