Excellent product I could have got one alittle cheaper but am soo glad I spend alittle extra and went with your product fits in hitch great and works great thank you

Great product works very well and gets the job done thanks again.
Jon C - 06/04/2017


The offset ball works great and gives me plenty of room to move my camper around. The shorter bed on the newer trucks don't give much room for turning, but with the offset ball I haven't had any issues yet


Just as pictured. It fits the Draw-Tite GN on my 2011 Silverado 2500 HD perfectly! It is a big heavy-duty item and must weigh about 10#. The weld around the ball is nicely done.

This is a great product and really helps in tight turns. It is very well made and all that needs to be done is keep the ball lubricated. We are pulling a 26 3-horse trailer. No evidence of any corrosion.
Brian B - 02/05/2016


Good product. Would be nice if the hitch plate kit had the option to include this ball. b/c now I have the straight ball that I don't use that came with the system.


It works great now my camper is not right at my back window. But I gave it 3 stars because I still have to remove my toolbox on my 2012 F150 Supercrew.


I ordered this 5” offset extension yesterday. Got it in 24 hours at normal shopping time frame. It looks and worked great!

My offset ball still looks and works like new. I recommend this!

Carol; great service! Also the hitch parts were right on. Well thought out and installed properly.
Outstanding in every way. Thanks


Perfect offset.


i just want to say that the lady that answered my phone call was the most friendly and helpful person. The product that she helped me get i liked better than the one that i had originally ordered. The gooseneck hitch was easy to install and works great.


Product is exactly what we needed. Service, as usual from etrailer, was prompt, professional and delivery was very fast.

Etrailer ALWAYS nails it!!!


Great quality product. Very well made, extremely durable, provided enough clearance for my shortbed GMC. Plus the shipping and customer service was exceptional, compared to other places that i checked previously. Would recommend this product and etrailer for your needs!


bought for a 2014 gmc shortbox. built heavy duty and works as expected.

works good. happy with the purchase.

Daryl T - 07/09/2018


It solved the back window interference problem with towing my horse trailer on a truck with a 5.5ft bed.


Product was delivered as scheduled and works fantastic. Thanks etrailer for your service.


Perfect. Because I have a mega cab. This receiver works great. It gives me greater turning radius. Which helps in thick traffic.
Thanks for the help


Great product, no issues!! It gave me the extra clearance needed for my trailer.


This is one of my best investments I put on my Toyota Tundra Crewmax work great I would refer this product for every Toyota owner


Very Heavy made, should give me some extra room after installing a hitch on a short bed pickup.


Worked great with f150 and 5 1/2 foot bed. Can’t go 90 degrees but can still turn pretty well. Very fast shipping. I am very pleased.


Product arrived on time and is exactly as advertised.

Works great, thanks
Jack H - 10/01/2017


Shipping was quick. Fits perfectly


Wish they made these in a larger set back for my short bed truck.

  • Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500 with 6-1/2 ft bed
    I checked with Draw-Tite and the confirmed that the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 9465-34 that you referenced will work on your 2003 Chevy 2500 Silverado with a 6-1/2 foot bed. The Hide-A-Goose gooseneck system is a great system that should work very well for you. Check out the install video I attached that shows this product being installed in a similar body style Silverado as yours. I also checked with Reese to see if the Gooseneck Hitch Ball with Offset # 19308 would...

  • How to Improve Turning Clearance with Toyota Tundra Towing a Gooseneck Trailer 8ft Wide
    The best offset option available for your Toyota Tundra and your gooseneck trailer is the Draw-Tite Gooseneck Hitch Ball with 5 Inch Offset, # 19308, that you referenced. Gooseneck hitches were not designed to provide additional offset for gooseneck trailers and short bed trucks, but this offset ball will improve your turning clearance by approximately 10 degrees. As you may have already determined, this ball will not allow you to safely make a 90 degree turn, but it will allow the best...

  • Will Handling of Gooseneck Trailer Worsen Using Offset Ball
    I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite and he said using an offset ball will not significantly increase trailer sway on a gooseneck trailer. If you are experiencing sway, the best defense is proper trailer loading. If you can load your trailer so that the tongue weight is between 10 and 15 percent of the total trailer weight you will reduce sway as much as possible. Also too much weight forward is very hard on the vehicle and too little weight forward is hard on the trailer, especially the...

  • Towing with a Hide-A-Goose Performer Gooseneck Extension
    The Hide-A-Goose gooseneck hitch ball with 5 inch offset, item # 19308, is meant to take the place of the standard ball. You can definitely drive/tow with it in place of your standard gooseneck ball.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Ball 19308 Round or Square Base?
    The receiver or bottom portion on the Gooseneck Hitch Ball with 2-5/16 inch Diameter and 5 inch Offset, part # 19308 is round. This Gooseneck ball is model specific, it will only work with the # 9460, # 9461, # 9462, # 9463, # 9464, # 9470, # 9471 and # 9474 series Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck hitch heads.

  • Does Offset Gooseneck Hitch Ball 19308 Change Where Trailer Pin Weight is Carried
    Since the offset ball part # 19308 carries the weight in the same location (the shank that installs into the hitch) there is no actual change in where the weight of the trailer is carried.

  • What is Gooseneck Trailer Coupler Overhang and Clearance Needed
    In regards to a gooseneck trailer, the coupler overhang is essentially the "neck" of the gooseneck. To make sure you have enough clearance to go over road bumps and make sharp turns, you want to have at least 6 inches between the overhang of your gooseneck trailer and the bed rails of your truck. This is measured from the bottom of the overhang to the top of your truck's bed rails, as shown in the attached photo.

    Yes, the Hide-A-Goose gooseneck trailer hitch # 9464-57 is a fit for your 2013 Ram 2500 Mega Cab short bed. Draw-Tite lists this hitch as a fit for all styles of the 2013 Ram 2500. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. Since you have a short bed truck I also recommend adding offset ball # 19308 which will provide 5 more inches of clearance.

  • How to Determine if a Gooseneck Hitch in a 2012 GMC Sierra 2500 Short Bed will Allow Turn Clearance
    Draw Tite does make great hitches like the part # 9465-56 which has been confirmed as a fit for your 2012 GMC Sierra 2500HD 6-1/2 foot bed. Here is the formula you will need to use to determine if you would have enough clearance to make tight turns: (A + B) - C = Clearance A = Distance from the gooseneck ball to the truck cab (the ball will end up 44-7/8 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed when installed so measure forward from this point for A.) B = Offset used, like if you used...

  • Is the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch A Bolt-On Fit for a 2011 Chevy 1500
    Yes, the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Custom Installation Kit part # 9465-54 is a direct bolt-on fit for your 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with the 6-1/2' bed (non-flare/stepside). However, you will need to drill into the bed floor for the hitch ball opening and safety chain loops but I am sure this is of no surprise to you. Please note that since you have a short bed truck, the 5" Offset Ball for Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Trailer Hitches part # 19308 may be required...

  • Gooseneck Offset Needed for Short Bed Pickup
    If you have a gooseneck trailer then we do have an option for your trailer side with the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200. It has a 10" offset and has an outer diameter of 4". For something that site between the hitch and the trailer, like part # 19308, I would need to know what gooseneck hitch you have on your pickup. These are hitch specific so only certain ones will fit with your towing setup. Let me know what you have and I can see if we have anything for you.

  • Offset Gooseneck Coupler for 2018 GMC Sierra 2500
    We may have a solution that will work for you, but the 5" Offset Ball for Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Trailer Hitches # 19308 does not fit the factory gooseneck on your 2018 GMC Sierra 2500HD. Instead, your best option is to use the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200; this coupler fits standard 4" diameter outer tubes, works with 2-5/16" gooseneck balls and will give you 10" of offset.

  • Could 2014 Toyota Tundra with 5-1/2 ft Bed Tow Gooseneck Trailer
    You do have a challenging setup for towing a gooseneck trailer, but if the trailer has a tapered nose like what you see on stock trailers and not a wider nose like what you see on horse trailers with living quarters you should be fine. Installing the Draw Tite Gooseneck Hitch part # 9465-36 is a fit for your 2014 Toyota Tundra 5-1/2 foot bed but since your bed is so short in length you'll want the offset ball extension # 19308 too. With this extension your toolbox would not be an issue either.

  • Location of Gooseneck Ball for Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose # 9465-37 on 2013 Ford F-150 Short Bed
    The 1/4 inch hole for the gooseneck ball will be drilled 45-3/4 inches from the rear of the bed on your 2013 Ford F-150 with the 5-1/2 foot bed when installing the Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose # 9465-37. You can take a quick measurement from this point on your bed up to the back of the cab to see how close this will be to the cab. On a short bed like yours I do recommend adding an offset ball like the Draw-Tite # 19308 that will give you 5 inches of additional cab clearance.

  • Is there an Offset Gooseneck Ball for the Factory Installed Gooseneck Hitch in a 2018 Ford F-350
    The factory installed gooseneck hitch from Reese does not have an offset ball option. It takes a special kind of ball, called a Pop-In ball, and they do not make an offset version. None of the other offset balls will work in the hitch. If you are towing a regular gooseneck trailer then you might be able to use B&W Extend-A-Goose, # BWTEXA4200. This is a gooseneck coupler inner tube that will fit a standard 4 inch diameter round tube on a gooseneck trailer.

    The Draw Tite Gooseneck Hitch part # 9465-54 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2012 Chevy Silverado with a 5-1/2 foot bed. Since your truck bed is so short and fifth wheel trailers typically have very wide noses you are going to need the offset part # 19308 but still may not have enough clearance. Here is a formula to determine if you would have enough clearance. (A + B) - C = Clearance A = Distance from the fifth wheel jaw/gooseneck ball center to the truck cab. (for this...

  • Best Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 Short Bed
    The most popular gooseneck hitch we offer with other owners of 2010 Ram 2500s with 6 foot beds is the Draw-Tite Gooseneck # 9464-35. This is a great hitch that would be strong, safe and about as easy as a gooseneck hitch can be to install. I attached installation instructions and an install video for you to check out for more info. Since you have a short bed you may also want the gooseneck ball with offset part # 19308 to give you better clearance while turning.

This 4" Offset Ball was designed to work with your hitch and has a square ball base to prevent ball from turning in hitch during hookup. The Gooseneck Hitch Ball with 2-5/16" Diameter and 5" Offset, # 19308, has a round shank and is designed to work with the Hide-A-Goose gooseneck hitch head.

  • How to Determine if a Gooseneck Trailer Will Clear Cab When Making Tight Turns
    You should have enough clearance, but here is the formula you can use to determine if you have enough clearance. You will need to know the width of the nose of your trailer as well. (A + B) - C = Clearance A = Distance from the gooseneck ball to the truck cab B = Offset used, like if you used a Offset Extension Ball # 19308 C = Width of the nose of the trailer divided by 2.

  • Will Using Reese Goose Box Allow Clearance When Turing With a 2014 Ram 2500 With 6 Ft. Bed
    The Reese Goose Box, # RP94716, does not offer additional clearance for short bed trucks above what the stock pin box would offer. However, using a offset gooseneck ball, if there is one available for your hitch, can typically extend the pivot point toward the rear of your truck. To find out if your Ram 2500 will have enough clearance to make tight turns you will need to insert a few measurements into the following formula: (A + B) - C = Clearance A = Distance from the gooseneck ball...

That is where the center of hole will be. With such a short bed truck I suggest using the 5 Inch Offset Ball # 19308 as well. This moved the pivot poing 5 inches rearward to give you extra clearance from your truck's cab.
