Video Transcript for B and W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Ball Review

Hello neighbors . It's Brad here at etrailer, and today we're taking a look at the BMW three-inch gooseneck ball. With your gooseneck, generally a 2-5/16 is going to be the standard ball that you're going to be using. But sometimes with the trailer that you need to hook up to require something a little bit larger. And as you can see, our three-inch can be that one. And it's as easy as pulling out and dropping it in and vice versa, when you need to swap from a different size.

Unlike our 2-5/16 or our three-inch, unfortunately it does not have the turnover feature as the ball is too large for the opening. But, it is still made out of the same steel construction, and it has a nice sync coding on it. So that's going to keep it protected for a long time and keeping it safe from rust and corrosion. This one has had a lot of years and miles on it, and it's still holding up. While it's a little dirty, a little bit of cleanup could bring this back to brand new.

You don't have to worry about this corroding away. So this is three-inch ball, as you can see, obviously is a larger diameter, but it's also a larger gross trailer weight at 40,000 pounds Let's say your standard 2-5/16 spalls are going to be 30,000 gross trailer weight. Now it's important to check to make sure that your fifth wheel can actually handle that weight. Most of our BMW under bed gooseneck hitch mounts do max out at 30,000 pounds gross trailer weight. Just because of the ball can't, doesn't mean THAT can't.

So you're going to want to compare those two numbers and take the lower of the two. Also available from BMW, is the two-inch hitch ball. So between your options here, you'll be able to hook up to a bunch of different applications or whatever your trailer may need. So, whether you're towing something like this camper, or if you're hauling snowmobiles or a horse or whatever your gooseneck needs are, BMW has you covered. And that was a look at the BMW three-inch gooseneck ball.

Thanks for watching..

This is the replacement as UPS lost the first order. (They're still looking for it, btw) Thank you Customer Service for such a speedy response, and offer to replace at no additional cost to me. Product arrived as promised and in GREAT packaging! Has the look and heft and build to it to handle and task I so deem it to perform without any concerns or reservations on my part. Stays in the toolbox when not needed. Easily swapped out with my other standard size drop in ball. A must have item if you tow various sized gooseneck trailers.

I am a transporter and purchased a 3 inch ball that I needed to complete a job. The b&w ball was consistat with the high quality expected from b&w. The fast shipping was what impressed me, although expensive it was worth it. I needed the ball for a load Friday morning. I placed my order late Wednesday afternoon, and had it at 8 am Thursday morning. Very fast,thanks a ton.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


This was my first order I placed with et etrailer. If one work could say it I guess it would perfect! I ordered on a Tuesday arrived on Thursday. I Placed the order got conformation and a name and contact to call if I had any issues, once it arrived I got another email letting me know if had been delivered. The installation video was perfect made it’s easy to install just followed the steps. When I need any trailer related items I will use them. As far as the B&W hitch i put it in a 2017 Ram 2500 with Ram boxes. The fit and quality of the hitch and design is what I have come to expect from B&W. I got this hitch to pull a gooseneck horse trailer. If your wondering if it will work with Ram Boxes it will.

Great product still love it works great with my Ram Boxes. No issues ever

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Received in terrible condition. One box was completely open at all borders and finish on hitch was chipped in multiple places. Product was shown as in stock when order was placed but wasn't shipped until the day AFTER it was supposed to be delivered. Two calls to etrailer told me it would be shipped prior to that date but obviously just trying to smooth over the situation. Installation was completed per instructions and watching etrailer [online] videos without issue. Only difficulty is torquing the bolts to final specs in tight spaces.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Overall this Installation went as I anticipated, 4-5 hours; it's not for an unprepared amateur. I strongly recommend watching the Installation Video, but more importantly, disconnecting the wiring harness (from both sides, there's 3 connectors) that cross over the rear cross member above the Differential. Disconnecting the rear exhaust was a MUST DO for us (my son helped me) as is a second person. Patience was our friend during this entire Installation for both of us. The brake line that crosses over to the passenger side was of concern to me, and got in the way as well; in the end it is below this entire installation. However there is a Mount Block on the driverside that creates a problemwith getting one bolt into place; a "Fishing Spring" (spring wire that wraps around the threads with long tail to fish/thread/pull thru the hole) would have helped to get this into place. (SEE PICTURE) Once in place the head is able to be held with a narrow spanked wrench while tightening. The rear center bolt is a HUGE challenge to reach once everything is in place and you're torquing things to spec.I had to purchase a "3/4" Crowsfoot" to get this and some of the others because of things blocking access with a socket (not talked about in the video or Installation Video). Once everything is in place and Reconnecting electrical plugs we found that there was enough gap/spacebehind the Kit Rear Cross Bar, over the vehicle rear cross member, to run the driver side electrical. Pay attention to have the "male" plug facing inboard to give you enough slack to reach the passenger side plug. A couple of zip-ties were needed to keep this inplace. See picture for how I routed this and the vent tube to avoid the heatshield. I've got a 26 foot Keystone Cougar 5th wheel RV Trailer that I be using this, along with an Andersen 3217 hitch. With this B&W Hitch I don't have the 5th wheel Rails across the bed full-time anymore of my 2022 Ram 1500DT 4x4.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


1997 ford f250 Works great, except the turnover part, the ball hits the sway bar. Install was not as easy as stated but that's probably because the kit was more of a universal fit for my truck and I had to do a lot of drilling.


Comments
I still have no complaints about the work ethics of this setup.

Great product. Direct fit so no need for modifications . The powder coated paint was in excellent condition. etrailer is an outstanding company. They keep you updated with your orders on a timely manner and the item was shipped and received within a few days before the delivery date. I will always continue to order any truck products from etrailer.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


This definitely is not a plug and play mechanism. There is interference with the lever to unlock the ball and it hitting one of the bolts. I had to shave the bolt down to make it even slide by, in addition to this I had to cut about 1/4” off the mechanism lever for it to open all the way and not hit the bracket on the truck. So in summary I had to make two cuts into the product to make it even function properly. Poor quality control.

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


The installation videos are pretty accurate all around. Admittedly, this took me a little longer than the projected time frame, which I anticipated. Removing the driver side wheel well insert also made torquing the bolts there easier. Installation would likely be easier with a buddy, and reaching the torque specifications on several bolts was difficult with a standard 1/2 inch drive torque wrench, but it was all possible and fit 100% perfectly. Excellent conversion for my 3500 8foot bed. Next step is to get the matching fifth wheel hitch and purchase our dream RV.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Installation was straight forward and it's well built. Works smoothly. etrailer was awesome as usual with shipping and service. However.... ;) on the BWGNRK1400 for '73-'87 GM trucks, the predrilled holes in the hitch for the safety chain u-bolts are 6-1/4" each way from center of the ball. This places the matching holes you have to drill in the truck bed on the sloped edge of the ribs, not in the center of the valley as intended. The instructions read as if the holes are not pre-drilled but they are, so I contacted B&W and asked if I can drill new holes at 8-3/4" each way of the ball so that they center in the next valley and they said no, that will void the warranty. So I had to do some bodywork, cut, weld and grind to scallop the ribs around the anchors to they won't always be sticking up (defeating the flat floor intent of this hitch design). I saw guy on [online] noted this was an issue on his squarebody bed as well. B&W needs to look at this dimension for future installations to help out the next guy.

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


I put B&W turnoverball on a 2016 Ram 2500 crew cab short bed diesel,it has the factory prep puck. The change over was pretty simple. I used the same studs and nuts that came with puck goose ball. Tbe only hard part was trying to pry the 4" exhaust pipe down to slide the B&W plate into position. It took me about 2 hours to install by myself. I am going to use a 4" offset ball so I can use a reese goosebox hitch for my 5th wheel.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Worked out … Perfect upgrade to the factory system. I hated having to remove , and place the covers in the bed. Now that the safety chains are closer to the center I can load boards and stuff that I don’t want in the trailer in the bed without having to rearrange everything. Only thing is the safety chain hoops are little thicker than the bed ribs and stick up. So it’s not totally flat..

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.

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.

Product delivered in excellent condition. Already installed the 1" high ball and hooked up my 5th Wheel. The entire rig is completely level over 53 ' to within less than 1/2 ". Thank you etrailer for having the products necessary to make my travels down the road safe and secure.

A must have for my rig. Provides additional clearance between 5th wheel and truck bed rails. Also helped to keep 5th Wheel level while traveling.
