Video Transcript for B and W Hitch Ball - Gooseneck Hitch Ball - BWGNXA2005 Review

Today we're going to review part number, BWGNXA2005, this is the B and W replacement hitch ball for the B and W turnoverball on their gooseneck hitch, part number BWGNRK1309. The ball diameter on this is 2-5/6ths, it has a weight capacity of 30,000 pounds. This replacement hitch ball is only designed to fit on the B and W turnoverball gooseneck trailer hitch, part number BWGNRK1309, and that part number is designed for the Dodge Ram 1500 truck, starting in 2009. The reason this one will only work on that hitch is because the size of the shank, from the center of the locking pin hole to the center of the base is shorter than the standard size hitch ball that comes on all the other turnoverball gooseneck hitches. This is a square ball base, as you can see here, prevents the ball turning in the base during hook-up. It is made of a sturdy steel construction, it is made in USA. I do want to give you that dimension, so that if you're trying to match it, from the bottom of this square base, to the center of that locking pin hole, is 1 inches. This is called a turnoverball because basically you would drop the square base into the gooseneck hitch and then you would tow with this gooseneck ball, when you're done towing, you can unlock it.

Pull the pin out, turn this over, drop this ball down in the square opening and then this would stay under the bed of the truck and this would be flush with the truck bed, so it'll give you full access to your truck bed. As you can see, there's a little handle there to help you lower down and to pull it back up. That should do it for the review on part number BWGNXA2005, the B and W replacement hitch ball for the B and W turnover ball on their gooseneck hitch, part number BWGNRK1309. .

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


This is a good kit. It took me about 3 hours to install, but I'm not the fastest. You'll need a floor jack, rope, 4" hole saw, 1/2" and smaller drill bits, drill, torque wrench, sockets, wrenches, and a impact driver would help make the job faster. Use the floor jack in the truck bed with a rope to lift the heavy plate into place. See pictures.

1 year later of towing heavy equipment trailers and no problems at all! Still going strong.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Great sturdy product. My used 2012 F-250 came with one and now have one on my 2020 F-250, I think it's a better product than the Ford factor hitch. The installation video is VERY helpful. Torquing the bolts requires a lot strength and flexibility due to the awkward positions you have to get in but it can be done with patience and prayer. Just plan on dropping the exhaust as shown in the video. As is consistently the case e-Trailer's customer service is second to none. We've already used it several times to pull at 16' gooseneck dump trailer and it works very well.

Great hitch, Ive purchased a second gooseneck trailer and have confidence when towing with this hitch.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Very heavy duty goose ball. Love that the bed is mostly free of obstructions when not using the hitch. Install took 2.5 hours for two of us and we did have access to a hydraulic lift. I couldn’t imagine trying this install alone or without the lift mostly because of how heavy this hitch is and the bolts/nuts you need to be able to reach and torque down. The worst part was drilling a 4” hole in the bed of a new truck, very nerve racking! I also like that this is custom fit for my truck and there were no hes that needed to be drilled in the frame, everything lined up perfectly. The etrailer install video was key, very informative and so much better than the instructions that came with the hitch. Delivery of the hitch was fast, only 4 days after ordered.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Great fit. I installed this hitch in 4 hours with a little help from my wife. She helped me fish a chain through the hole in the bed and attach it to a floor jack. We use it in conjunction with an Andersen Ultimate fifth wheel hitch. I used it to pull a 16,000 lb fifth wheel trailer 100 miles with no issues. Everything is still tight.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


This thing is awesome!! Well designed and can be installed at home. I have not towed with it yet but that will change soon. Would state that two things, 1st torquing this to spec will require the right tools. Second make sure you have a new/ sharp hole saw. When installing mine I had a used while saw that walked a little. Just a cosmetic issue and the spray in Berliner will fix!!


Comments
Only way to go! I have used this with my Reece Goosebox and love it. With over 4,000 miles pulling and 9,000 miles on the truck total I have not complaints at all. Would recommend to ensure you grease the ball every time you hook up!!

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


ETrailer was really helpful when I called them with a question. Was installing pretty easy but since I have a older truck bed wasn’t exactly straight so put 2x4 under floor jack and was able to raise it enough to install my rails underneath without it hitting shock like it was first doing. Took few hours but looks good. Haven’t used it so can’t give a rating for how well it actually tows heavy loads. I plan on towing my gooseneck trailer with tractor which should be around 25k pounds.


Comments
Works great, I have no complaints. Will buy again for any other truck I have that needs one.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Between the videos and the instructions it was very easy to follow. If you’re like me and don’t want to cut your fender liners I simply removed the front bed bolts and jacked one side up to slide in the mounting rails. The only fender I had to cut was the drivers side to allow for the latch pin lever. I really like just how “flush” the hitch really is once you turn over the ball. Overall very impressed with the hitch so far and have already recommended the hitch to other family members and friends.


Comments
I’ve had this hitch for about a year and use it daily around the farm from moving cattle to hauling hay to moving equipment around and just like the first day she works like a charm. Very good investment and still highly recommend for anyone looking for a good reliable hitch!

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Loved the quick shipping. Only had a few days to get this and it arrived with 1 day to spare. Had it installed at the dealer's, took a couple of hours. Hauled a heavy trailer over 400 miles with no problems. Worked great.


Comments
Had this hitch installed on a 2019 GMC Sierra Denali. I was very satisfied with both the hitch and the shipping. Just traded the Denali for a 2020 Chevy 3500 Dually last week which came with the gooseneck package so no longer have the hitch.

what a great kit, heavy duty and relatively easy to install. I installed it by myself with the help of overhead winch to hold the plate tight to the bed while I installed the bolts. you will need a 200 foot pound torque wrench to get the job done. I have had a B&W companion fifth wheel hitch in it for a year and have pulled a 16000 pound camper from Pennsylvania to Colorado and back 3 times with no issues.

As a retired machinist, I impressed with the functionality and quality of this made in the USA product. I'm adapting this to fit my 2019 Mercedes Sprinter Cab Chassis to pull my 5th wheel. I'll end up with a 7' flatbed and a 7' sleeper cab !

Hitch is well built!!!!Was easy to install. The video they provide is spot on! Very satisfied all the way around! Would definitely buy again. I used a clamp to drill the pilot hole. Everything lines right up. B&W is a great product. Installed this in a 2021 Ram 2500!

The fit of the assembly is good however some of fasteners were missing; 2-1/2” x 2 1/4” bolts, 2-1/2” flat washers (45 minute trip to hardware store). Snap ring not installed on bottom of the locking mechanism (very hard to install it after the assembly is in the truck and another trip to the hardware store for snap ring pliers)

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Great hitch! For the most part it was an easy install. I have air bags on my truck so I had to work around that but all in all, it wasnt to bad. It goes without saying that if you’re going to install a gooseneck style hitch, going with the B&W is the only way to go. Quality in workmanship, longevity, and a proven product. Ive used the heck out of this hitch from hauling a 5 horse living quarters trailer to a 42’ spread axle 12-ton flat bed hauling signal mast arms. This hitch didnt flinch, flex or skip a beat! The release mechanism for the turn over ball has worked flawlessly!

Great product and easy installation. Used hitch continuously for the past year pulling gooseneck trailers moving equipment and have had no problems. I would recommend this hitch to all my coworkers. It is nice to have full use of the truck bed when hitch is not in use.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


I installed this yesterday, along with the Companion 5th Wheel Hitch. Very good instructions, well written, great illustrations. Everything fit perfectly, no struggles with alignment. Very good hardware. Looks to be very sturdily built, the welds looks great. One thing to look out for - on my 2016 Chev 3500 anyway, the exhaust is in the way of drilling the passenger side retractable chain hook holes. You will need an angle drill or drill with a flexible extension cable. Or get your steel rule out and do some serious measuring like I did and drill the holes from the top down. I drilled the accessible driver's side, then transposed those measurements to the passenger side and drilled from the top using a small drill. After hitting the hole, I used progressively larger drills until I found the edge of the 1/2" hole in the center plate, then hogged out the hole the rest of the way with a Dremel grinder. Not a big deal, just had to get a little creative. Over all, excellent experience, from the purchase, the help from customer service (fantastic people!), fast delivery and easy install. Highly recommended!

It has worked just as it should. I’d recommend it to anyone. Our truck has the bed delete option, so installation was very easy and quick. It is well designed and very sturdy. I think it will very likely outlast the truck. If I had another truck that needed a gooseneck hitch, I’d choose this same option.

Installed on 2020 F150 5 1/2’ bed. It went almost flawless. I had 2 issues that need to be pointed out in the instructions. The crossover angle bars need to be put in a certain way in order to roll them up in place. I did the back one wrong and couldn’t get it back out so I had to loosen the bed so I could get it in place. Make sure the open end is down ^ and holes to the inside towards the center. The only other issue I has was to remove the tire to get the ball release bar in place. I have pulled a 30 ft GN with 5 large round bales of hay and had no problems. If you want a GN in your SB Ford this is the one

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


If you are installing this hitch on a RAM without the OEM hitch just follow the instructions. Everything is spelled out nicely. My first conversion from the Ram puck system to the B&W was made in order to use their offset ball. It was on a 2018 RAM 2500 and was pretty straight forward using the four factory mounting bolts rather than those supplied with the hitch. That way I didn't have to remove the truck bed. I just finished a second conversion on a 2019 RAM single wheel 3500. It was more complicated. I understood that this hitch was intended for a RAM without the factory hitch so I spoke to B&W to make sure the 1320 could replace my Original factory hitch. I was told it would. It did fit, however I had to drill out the holes for the four vertical mounting bolts to 3/4" so I could use the factory mounting bolts. This allowed me to install the hitch without removing the truck bed. I also had to shorten the front driver side factory bolt so it would clear the ball latch lever. I used the bolts supplied with the hitch for the four horizontal bolts because the factory bolts won't fit the B&W hitch. With the above modifications everything functions as it should. I hope this helps anyone wanting to install the B&W on a RAM with the factory puck system.

    Of the available options, I prefer the B&W # BWGNXA2062 which includes the compatible gooseneck ball as well as safety chain anchors that mount in the pucks. As opposed to the Curt and Reese offerings that use a latch mounted in the top of the ball that can be easily damaged, the B&W uses a latch that folds flat when the ball is locked into place so it's out of the way of he gooseneck coupler and won't get damaged. I've linked to an installation video that you might find helpful.

  • What Are The Differences Between Standard Trailer Hitch And Gooseneck Hitch Balls
    The size of the hitch ball itself is the same but there are differences between the standard hitch balls and a gooseneck ball. The shank on a standard hitch ball like the hitch ball you came from, part # BWHB94005, is threaded so that the nut can be used to tighten it to the balll mount. On a gooseneck ball they are typically designed to fit a specific gooseneck hitch.
