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

Brad Hello neighbors it's Brad here, etrailer. And today we're taking a look at the BMW high rise, which is a 2 and 5 16th ball for a gooseneck. So next to the high rise, we have a standard BMW. Now, as you can tell, and the name implies, the high rise is quite a bit taller. And what that's going to do, is when in place and hooked up, is going to give you a little bit of height on your attachment point. What this is going to be good for is giving you that extra clearance.

And that way it may raise it above to clear any transfer takes, toolboxes or any other imbed accessories that you may have. Next to our standard 2 and 5 16th ball, you can tell that they look very similar minus this section, and that's where it's raised up. But, something that you might not be able to see is the gross trailer weight rating actually goes down with this because it is raised up and that's gonna be at 20,000 pounds versus the 30,000 pounds on the standard. Now, another feature that you don't get, like the standard ball, is the fact that you're not able to turn this and drop it in upside down for storage because it is taller. So if that's kind of a make or break, the reason you're getting this is to clear your accessories, and if you have a toolbox, you can put it in there.

The great things that they do share in common are going to be the steel construction. So they're both very durable and they also have zinc coating on it. So that zinc coating is going to give you nice protection from the elements and from rust and corrosions. So, here we have one that's been used for a couple of years and has a lot of miles on it, and is used quite often. And as you can tell, yeah, it's a little dirty, but with the cleanup, you can have it looking brand new again because it is coated.

So, if you are concerned with the clearance of your bed accessories while towing something like a camper, or something like this snowmobile trailer, or a horse trailer, or whatever you're towing, this is going to be a great option for you to gain that clearance and still be able to tow. And that was a look at the BMW high-rise the 2 and 5 16th ball for a gooseneck..

Designed for use with B&W's Turnoverball gooseneck hitch, this sturdy steel ball provides an additional 1" of height to fit your application.


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.
Gary F - 05/04/2022


Worked great put a 5th wheel plate in my utility box to pull my camper and the plate was to low for regular ball so I ordered this one and it saved the day work excellent!


Solved problem by lifting 5th wheel


This was higher ball was necessary after I put a rubber pad in the truck bed. Had a very tight deadline, ordered it about 2pm. etrailer was able to have the hitch shipped that same afternoon! Uh


This ball hitch is a MUST HAVE for anyone pulling a 5th wheel camper converted to a goose neck. The added length allows for much more flexibility without ruining your trucks side panels.


Your product was as advertised. It worked great in my B&W under the bed turnover hitch. I couldn't tell any difference between the OEM B&W and yours except the 1 inch rise, also it turns over and fits flush with my truck bed just like the OEM. My truck is a GMC 2500 HD.


I couldn't be any happier with this fine hitch and as always the Excellent Etrailer prices and Customer Service, thank you


Top notch customer service and fast shipping. Have been ordering from etrailer for years and will continue to do so.


Always great products from etrailer. George always follows up letting you know that the order has been shipped.


Helps with bed clearance with my Reese goose box.


completely satisfied. Exactly what I needed the high rise ball.
would order from website again.


The 1" high ball works great. But the shipping was awesome. 5-7 delivery, I got it in two days. This is a great company to order from.


Quick and easy, no problems, product as described.

No problems, don’t use very often, truck is stored inside. works great, easy to use.

  • High-Rise Gooseneck Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
    From what I can tell it sounds like you are trying to get a high-rise gooseneck ball for a B&W Turnoverball gooseneck trailer hitch. If that is accurate, there is an option available for a ball with a 1 inch rise. That would be the 1" High-Rise Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNXA2050.

  • Availability of Hi-Rise Gooseneck Ball for OEM Puck System on 2018 Ram 2500
    I may have a solution for you, however the B&W 1" High-Rise Ball # BWGNXA2050 you referenced features a square shank that will only work with the corresponding square shaped hole on the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitches. This will not fit the round OEM gooseneck ball hole on your 2018 Ram 2500. There isn't a high-rise ball available that's designed to fit he OEM puck on your Ram, but we do have the B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit # BWGNXA2062 that's a confirmed fit. While this isn't labeled...

  • Replacement Ball for B&W Turnoverball for 2014 Dodge Ram Pickup
    You are correct, the hitch ball that came with your B&W Turnoverball hitch is going to have a specific ball that will act as a replacement because of the shorter base. The direct replacement for your Turnoverball hitch is going to be # BWGNXA2005 . The distance from center of locking pin hole to bottom of square base is 1-1/4" .

  • High Rise Hitch Ball Recommendation for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch
    B&W actually has a product just for your situation. They make a gooseneck hitch ball that has an additional inch of height added to it as part # BWGNXA2050 which will fit your hitch.

  • Availability of Taller B and W Gooseneck Turnoverball Ball
    B and W does offer an offset gooseneck ball for their Turnover hitches that also sits up a bit taller with the part # BWGNXA4085. I attached a picture that shows this ball next to the standard ball and you can see it's noticeably taller. For a similar ball without the offset we have the # BWGNXA2050. This only 1 inch taller though.

    I have attached a dimensional photo of the Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter part # RP94716 which you can use to determine your bed rail clearance but I would not be able speculate on this for you as there are just too many variables involved. That said, we do offer the 1" High-Rise Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNXA2050 and the 4" Offset Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitches part # BWGNXA4085 which will both increase...

  • Is There a Taller Gooseneck Ball Available for B&W Turnoverball Hitch
    There are two options you can use for a bit of added height when using your B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1016. You can get an extra 1" by using the High-Rise Ball for B&W Turnoverball # BWGNXA2050. You can also use the B&W Turnoverball with 4" Offset # BWGNXA4085, which is roughly 5-3/4" tall (1-11/16" taller) from the base of the truckbed to the top of the ball. This gooseneck ball has a 4" offset, so it will move the hitch ball 4" further away from your truck cab,...

  • Rise Hitch Recommendation for B and W Turnoverball Gooseneck # BWGNRK1320
    Yes, we do have a rise gooseneck ball for the B and W Turnoverball gooseneck hitches as part number # BWGNXA2050. This fits the gooseneck hitch you referenced as well part # BWGNRK1320. This will give you an additional 1 inch of rise.

  • Gaining Additional Bed Rail Clearance with Bulldog BX1 Gooseneck Coupler Inner Tube
    I do not recommend drilling another set of holes into the Bulldog BX1 Gooseneck Coupler Inner Tube # BD1289050300. Doing this would void the manufacturer's warranty and it may also negatively affect the tube's integrity which could lead to damage down the line. I am not sure what model gooseneck hitch you have installed on your truck but another option to add a bit of clearance is to replace the existing gooseneck ball with one that has a rise. For example if you happen to have the B&W...

  • Taller Gooseneck Ball to fit B and W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch
    We do have taller gooseneck hitch balls that will provide around a 1 inch rise like the B and W High Rise Ball part # BWGNXA2050 but this ball only fits B and W Turnoverball gooseneck hitches. If you happen to have a different brand hitch in the bed of your truck let me know and I'll see what options are available.

  • Availability of High Rise Ball with B and W Gooseneck BWGNRK1500
    We don't offer the # BWGNRK1500 as a way to order with a high rise ball so you'd need to order that separate with part # BWGNXA2050.

    I do have what you need, however the B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit # BWGNXA2061 that you referenced will not fit the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch on your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500. This particular kit is designed to install inside the factory pucks on Chevy Silverados that came equipped with them and will not fit inside the square hitch ball hole that your Turnoverball provides.

  • Trailer Height Adjustment for Compatibility with 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500
    For your 5th wheel with Goose Box on and your new truck, I recommend adjusting the pin box for the clearance needed as 2 inches is not enough. Then you can adjust your trailer height using the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit # K71-384-00 to add height to your trailer by flipping your axles. You do want your trailer to be as level as possible when towing. Another help may be to use the 1" High-Rise Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch - 2-5/16" # BWGNXA2050. Towing...

  • Reese Goose Box For a 2021 Alliance Valor 40/13 5TH Wheel Toy Hauler
    Your 2021 Alliance Valor 40/13 Toy hauler appears to have a 1621 style pin box. You can verify this by measuring the bolt pattern on your pin box or you can provide me with the Lippert frame tag I can verify with Lippert. Your Pin box should have a horizontal separation of 7-7/8" on center and 2" vertically on center. The box will also be 12" wide. If this matches your bolt pattern the Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter # RP85FR is the one you need. As there...

  • Compatibility of B&W Steel Workbed and Reese Goose Box
    It sounds like you have the Steel Workbed with the B&W turnoverball integrated. Normally the recessed gooseneck hitch ball will cause compatibility issues with an adapter like the Reese Goosebox. If the gooseneck ball isn't recessed or isn't recessed more than 2 inches to the base of the ball itself, then the 1" High-Rise Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch - 2-5/16" # BWGNXA2050 would offer compatibility. If you have a deeper recess than that then you won't be able to...

  • Recommendation for Reese Goose Box With Too Little Height Clearance on 2017 Ford F-250 4x4
    The Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter # RP85FR may not be the best fit. If you have already adjusted the air and the position of the connection, then it is not ideal as you really do want the 7 inches for proper turning clearance on an incline. You can gain 1 inch by using the High-Rise Ball # BWGNXA2050, but it sounds like you need a different option than the Goose Box for your 2017 Ford F-250 4x4.
