Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Hitch Ball - Gooseneck Hitch Ball - 5973 Review

Today, we're going to review Part# 5973. This is the Draw-Tite 2-5/16" diameter Remov-a-Ball Gooseneck Hitch Ball. Now this part is a replacement Gooseneck Ball for the Remov-a-Ball Gooseneck trailer hitches made by Draw-Tite and Reese. Basically those gooseneck hitches would allow you to drop this ball into place and then a pin would go through the hole right in here to lock it into place. Then when you pull the handle, remove the pin, you can remove it from the hitch itself. This is the replacement ball. The ball diameter up here is 2-5/16".

The shank diameter right down here, we're going to measure, is right at 2-1/4". The shank height from the bottom to the very bottom of the ball here is going to be 2-3/4". And then just a few measurements, the diameter of the hole is 3-1/4" and the measurement from the center of that hole to the base at the bottom is 1-1/4, and from the center of that hole to the bottom to the ball is 1-1/2". This ball it has stamp on the top, has a 30,000 pound weight capacity and it is also stamped 2-5/17" diameter. That should do it for the review on Part# 5973, the Draw-Tite 2-5/16" Remov-a-Ball Gooseneck Hitch Ball.

Most gooseneck trailer balls have too short of a neck for trailer socket to clear ball plate when crossing rough terrain, which applies extreme pressure on ball as well as trailer neck. E-trailer had tall 2 5/16” balls, good steel, very well made! 654935

I couldn't be happier with this product. I bought a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 dually with a gooseneck under bed hitch installed but, I had no idea what it was due to the recently installed bed liner. Thanks to etrailer and their excellent video giving the size of the shank, pin hole etc., I was able to order with confidence knowing this ball would fit. It does and I'm a happy camper. Thanks etrailer! 447404

I was in a bind, trying to find a ball to fit the hitch already installed (and manufacturer covered with spray on liner >:-/) and, being a newbie at gooseneck towing, I bought any old ball from Amazon. I learned my lesson that a B&W square post doesn't go in a round hole, and called the local trailer shop. They had to sell me the whole shebang (mount and ball), so I looked online instead. The descriptions here helped me find the right diameter shaft, and I was able to match the hitch in my bed with one on here, and then the cross-referencing and help articles listed with multiple balls (I almost got the hide-a-ball until I read part of the description) helped me find this exact match for my mount! Arrived in the 2 day time frame just in time for me to go get my new trailer, installed in 1 second flat, and works as advertised. Love Etrailer.com. 218824

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Hitch Ball
Do you have a question about this Hitch Ball?


  • What is Considered a Pop-In Gooseneck Hitch Ball
  • A pop-in gooseneck hitch ball is something like the Pop-In Ball for Reese Elite Series Underbed Gooseneck Hitch # RP19315 which you turn and lock into place in your hitch. This is opposed to a ball such as the Remov-a-Ball Gooseneck Hitch Ball # 5973 which is held in place in the hitch with a pin. Gooseneck hitches with a pop-in ball should not be used with the Convert-A-Ball Multi-Cushioned Gooseneck Trailer Coupler # CG.

  • Availability of Replacement Hitch Balls for Draw Tite Gooseneck Hitches
  • If the portion of your hitch ball that slides into the hitch opening is square we aren't going to have a replacement gooseneck ball for it. Basically we have two styles of replacement gooseneck balls for Draw Tite hitches. We have the Hide-A-Goose style like part # 19309 which flips over and reinstalls in the hitch body and we have the Remov-a-Ball style like the part # 5973 which is either left in the hitch or taken out.

  • 3 Inch Gooseneck Ball Compatibility with 2018 Ford F-450 Cab and Chassis
  • The Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 6300 only has the 2-5/16 hitch ball # 5973 available. There is not a 3 inch hitch ball available for that unit. There are two options for a gooseneck hitch that has a 3 inch ball other than the OEM prep package options. The Hitch Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch - 3" # BWGNXA2025 and the Hide-A-Goose Performer Gooseneck Hitch Ball with 3" Diameter # 19307. With either option, you would need to fabricate a fit for your...

  • Replacement Gooseneck Hitch Ball Recommendation for a Reese Hitch
  • If you have a Reese Remov-a-ball hitch part # 6300 then the Remov-a-Ball Gooseneck Hitch Ball with 2-5/16 inch Diameter # 5973 that you referenced would be the correct ball for you. If you have a Hide-a-Goose gooseneck like part # 9460 then you would want the Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch Ball # 19309.

  • Recommended Replacement Hitch Ball For Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • The ball that is included with the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part # 9465-36, is a 2-5/16 inch diameter ball. If you need a 2-5/16 inch replacement we have 3 to choose from. First, we offer part # 19309. We also carry part # 19306, that has a 1 inch rise and the Reese Gooseneck Hitch Ball, part # 19308, that has a 5 inch offset for your hitch. We also offer one hitch ball that has a 3 inch diameter that is designed to fit your hitch. It is part # 19307.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch Ball for a 2017 Nissan Titan XD
  • I am not sure what the size of the puck hole is on your 2017 Nissan Titan XD but I can say that you shouldn't use the Remov-a-Ball Gooseneck Hitch Ball # 5973 with your OEM gooseneck hitch. This hitch ball is designed to be used with the model 6300 Remov-A-Ball gooseneck trailer hitches which have a pin that runs through the hitch ball. Since your Titan XD doesn't have that pin to lock the hitch ball in place you need to use a hitch ball that has a self-locking feature. The most popular...

  • Dimension Location of Pin Hole on Gooseneck Ball # 5973
  • On the hitch ball part # 5973 that you referenced the center of the pin hole measures 1-1/4 inches from the bottom of it and then from the top of the shank it measures 1-1/2 inches.

  • Finding a Replacement Ball for an Unknown Gooseneck Hitch in a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500
  • Curt Pop-In Ball # C60601 is designed specifically for 2011 to 2018 Ford trucks with the factory installed gooseneck prep package or 2013 to 2018 Ram trucks with the factory installed gooseneck prep package. If the truck you bought is not one of those then this ball won't fit even if the shank is the right size (shank is 2-1/4 inches in diameter). You didn't mention the year, make, and model of the truck so if you can give me that information I can see which gooseneck hitches are available...

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • For your 2011 Ford F-250 I recommend the B&W gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1111. Since the trailer is a gooseneck trailer the ideal set up will be a gooseneck hitch. This way you will not have any adapters that could limit movement or add additional stress to the truck or trailer. Many people prefer the gooseneck connection over other methods, such as a 5th wheel hitch, because it pulls better and offers more movement according to people who use and like gooseneck hitches. The fact that it...

  • Replacement Gooseneck Round Hitch Ball for 2004 Dodge Ram Truck
  • Based on the Curt 1" High-Rise Ball for Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # C60603 you asked from, I'm assuming you have a gooseneck hitch and need a replacement hitch ball. Obviously you don't have a B&W hitch because you asked for a round ball option versus the square shank so we can at least slightly narrow it down for your 2004 Dodge Ram. We have both Curt and Draw-Tite hitch options for you Ram, so I'll give you the part numbers for the hitch and then the...
