Video Transcript for B and W Hitch Ball - Gooseneck Hitch Ball - BWGNXA4085 Review

Today, were going to review part number BWGNXA4085. This is the B7W four-inch offset hitch ball for the B&W turnover ball gooseneck trailer hitches. This offset hitch ball is designed for use with the B&W turnover ball gooseneck hitch. This bow extender will move the pivot point of your trailer four inches rearward to provide additional cab clearance. It does have the square ball base like used on all the B&W turnover ball gooseneck hitches. This will help prevent the ball from turning in the hitch during hook up. This is all steel construction, has a powdered coat finish to help resist corrosion.

It is made in the USA. Now the ball size diameter on this is 2 5/16. Again, the offset reset is four inches so its from the center of the square post to the center of the hitch ball so if we put a ruler on that center to center, well see the four inches. It does have a weight capacity of 20,000 pounds. It has a vertical low limit or pin weight capacity of 5,000 pounds and just to give you an idea of how this installs, I have an example of a B&W turnover ball gooseneck hitch right here in the end of the table. Im just going to rotate this table around and you can see theres a standard turnover ball gooseneck hitch.

The ball will just come out and then what you could do is take your offset hitch ball. Drop it into place. Now this would be the rear of the truck and this pointing up towards the front would be the cab so basically you would install it to where it would move your pivot point four inches back rearwards of the truck and that will give you your additional cab clearance. Then you will just pull this handle and it would lock. The pin locking pin would come across and lock it into place just like it would do on the regular hitch ball. Thats should do it for the review of part number BWGNXA4085.

I don't know why I didn't get this at the beginning. I've had this extender for a year. I purchased it right after hitting my cab when pulling my 42' toy hauler. Adding this gives me more turning ability and also holds the trailer a little higher than the standard ball. This gives more distance between my bed caps and the trailer. I now can take my trailer far more places without the stress of hitting the truck. Strongly recommend for anyone with a short bed. 704406

Very well built! Works great! My big fifth wheel converted to goose neck camper pulled great with it! 255186

Got it in but it fits so tight I can’t pull it back out even with a pry bar. Other than that it pulls the trailer good. 511053

The off set ball works great for my 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab. I converted from a rail mounted sliding fifth wheel to a B&W hidden goose neck hitch. With the short bed, I was concerned about turning too short and the trailer hitting the truck cab. I have been able to make some very tight turns with no issues. 249579



- BWGNXA4085
by:

Works Great! Wish they made one with a 6” set back. Ford moved the rear axle back from bed center at some point. On my 2016 350 dally it is. This makes backing goose neck up strange and hard with center ball. It reverses the action on trailer until you over come center which takes a lot of swing. Not good in tight places. 6” or 8” would be awesome and may improve ride and steering. 616235

Love it! Have a short bed dodge diesel and this offset is a must have for our camper. Was a little concerned about putting off center pressure on my hitch but everything seems to be holding up well. Would definitely recommend to anyone with a short bed. 522431

Just made the purchase of the offset ball. It employs to the hitch receptacle easy and locks in easily too. It set the trailer back about 4 inches as stated it would and gives a wider turn on the trailer wheels. The headwall of the trailer is no longer an issue on my 6'6" truck bed. The trailer sits an inch higher on the front only, so you barely notice it. Expect the powder coat to come off the ball itself, but the supporting steel looks good and durable. 575342

Very nice, well made product. Just installed it today along with the Reese Goosebox on my Montana 5th wheel being towed with a 2015 Dodge 3500 Megacab (shortbed). Between the dually with rear air adjustable suspension, the new Gen. 2 Goose Box and the offset ball...it tows amazingly well. Gonna test out the turning capability tomorrow to see how the offset works with my RV set up as it is. NOTE: DO NOT be mislead by the description of the offset ball specified for Dodge Ram (model BWGNXA4685). I was told by customer service at B&W that model is for 1500 Rams ONLY. The hole spacing is different for 2500 and 3500 and the B&W hitch that they use apparently. Great customer service as usual when I had to exchange the 4685 for the 4605 that I am now using. 660916

I purchased the offset ball for a 1986 Chevy 1 ton pickup equipped with the 1400R goose neck turnover hitch. It put the ball 4 inches further to the rear and still kept the hitch point in front of the rear axle center line. This ball increased the all around clearances between the pickup bed and the trailer and softened the bed deflection while driving on uneven surfaces (due to the ball being closer to the axle center line). Also, I can now leave my tail gate down while backing all the way under my old trailer to hook up. In my opinion, this ball is necessary for use in a 73-87 GM pickup truck used to pull an older goose neck trailer which may not be built with the extra clearances that a newer trailer would have. 466047

High Quality, Heavy duty 4” offset ball mount that works perfectly with the B&W turnover gooseneck hitch system. Adapted my 30’’ fifth wheel trailer with the Ranch regular gooseneck adapter—now no more heavy lifting and lots more room in the truck bed. 513243

I have a 2005 F 250 crew cab short box. I changed from a 5th wheel for simplicity and ease of switching from a trailer to a slide in camper. So, this is all I have to remove in order to be able to put the camper on. I am getting older and this is just enough weight to carry around. The offset is perfect to jackknife the trailer. The towing with this set up is way better than the fifth wheel. Way more solid feeling and no clunking. I should have done this years ago. 449100

Ask the Experts about this B and W Hitch Ball

Do you have a question about this Hitch Ball?


  • Gooseneck Clearance Equation and Offset Ball Options for 2017 Ford F-350 Short Bed
  • For your 2017 F-350 short bed, the clearance calculation is the measurement from the cab to ball center minus 1/2 the trailer width. This will give you the minimum clearance. If that number is positive the trailer will not interfere with the cab of the truck, but if it is negative then it will interfere and you need to be extremely cautious. We do have offset hitch balls that are hitch specific to gain more clearance and we also have the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler - 2-5/16"...

  • B&W Gooseneck Hitch to Replace OEM Gooseneck Hitch on a 2016 Ram 3500
  • You can replace the OEM puck system on your 2016 Ram 3500 with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1314 but you will need to use the installation hardware that comes with the B&W kit. Not only have these bolts been tested and approved with the B&W gooseneck hitch but typically hitch hardware, whether it is for bumper pull or 5th wheel/gooseneck hitches, is only meant to be torqued once. The reason that other gooseneck hitches don't have an offset is because they...

The cut out of the instructions show where the hitch ball will be when installing this. Since you have a 5-1/2 foot bed you will need the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200 which has a 10" offset, in order to give you a way to make a turn with a gooseneck hitch installed.

  • The offset adapters you mentioned part # BWGNXA4085 and # BWTEXA4200 aren't exactly an apples to apple comparison. Reason being that when your truck turns relative to the trailer the # BWTEXA4200 turns with it which diminishes the 10 inch offset where you need it the most. Whereas the part # BWGNXA4085 moves the pivot point back 4 inches so it's offset, while smaller, is a more effective offset when you consider cab clearance.

  • Sounds like you may be asking if the 4 inch Offset part # BWGNXA4085 can be used with the offset facing towards the cab of the truck or towards the rear of the truck. While it was designed to be used with the ball towards the rear theres no reason it couldn't be used facing forward since the center hole used to pin the ball is completely centered in the shank.

  • 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.

So in other words you will need # BWGNXA4085.

  • Best Offset Option for Fifth Wheel Towing with 2014 Ford F-150 5-1/2 ft Bed
  • An offset that doesn't pivot will always give you better cab clearance. The # BWTEXA4200 does move the trailer 10 inches back but when you are making a tight turn (when you'd need it the most), that offset moves to the side and actually brings the trailer back nearly to where it would be without the offset. So an offset on the hitch ball side that doesn't move like the # BWGNXA4085 would give you a more "true" offset when needed. For your 2014 Ford F-250 with a 5-1/2 foot bed you'd...

These parts will work well together.

  • B&W Offset Ball for 2018 Ford F-150 6.5 Bed Compatibility With Anderson Ultimate 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1115 is a confirmed fit for the 2018 Ford F-150.
