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.

  • Hitch Ball to Fit 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 HD
    The 5" Offset Ball # 19308 is specifically designed for Hide-A-Goose gooseneck trailer hitches that have a pin to go through the shank. Currently the only gooseneck hitch ball that is compatible with your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 is the B&W # BWGNXA2061 which uses ball bearings to secure the hitch ball to your OEM puck system. In the event that you don't have the factory puck system on your Sierra 3500 you can install the B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1020 and use their 4" Offset Ball # BWGNXA4085....

  • Gooseneck Hitch for 2019 Ram 2500 with Offset Ball Option
    We have a gooseneck hitch that fits your 2019 Ram 2500 that can have an offset hitch ball installed in it with the B and W Turnoverball part # BWGNRK1320 which you could use the offset ball part # BWGNXA4085 but we don't have a hitch with a offset ball that will work with the Draw Tite you mentioned.

  • Will the 5" Gooseneck Hitch Ball Work With 2020 Ram 3500 Factory Hitch
    There isn't an offset gooseneck hitch ball for the factory prep package on any truck. The only option to obtain an offset is with a new coupler, the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler part # BWTEXA4200 is a great option with 10" offset.

  • What are Determining Factors for Figuring Out if Truck and Gooseneck have Trailer Turning Clearance
    With a 5-1/2 foot bed you would need all the offset you could get to make a 90 degree turn honestly. There are two determining factors for whether or not you need an offset. The first is the width of the nose of your trailer and then the distance from the center of the gooseneck ball to the truck cab. If the front of your trailer is very narrow you would have your best chance of making a sharp turn. If the trailer has living quarters or a square nose at all then you would be out of...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Offset Ball for B&W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
    I do have a solution for you, however the Draw-Tite 5" Offset Ball # 19308 mentioned in your question is not compatible with B&W gooseneck hitches. There a few compatible offset balls for your B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch, depending on the specific model that you have. To ensure you get the correct one, you just want to take a measurement from the locking pin hole to the bottom of the square base on your hitch ball. I have included an image that shows where you want to take this measurement....

  • Gooseneck Clearance Equation and Offset Ball Options for 2017 Ford F-350 Short Bed
    For your 2017 F-350 short bed, the clearance calculation is the measurement from the cab to ball center minus 1/2 the trailer width. This will give you the minimum clearance. If that number is positive the trailer will not interfere with the cab of the truck, but if it is negative then it will interfere and you need to be extremely cautious. We do have offset hitch balls that are hitch specific to gain more clearance and we also have the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler - 2-5/16"...

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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

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.

This particular ball is only a fit for older models of Hide-A-Goose that use a lever to secure the ball, and the one that fits your '17 F-350 uses a pop-in ball.

  • 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.

There is no option for an offset ball on a Remov-A-Ball hitch. The best option I have is the B&W offset gooseneck coupler # BWTEXA4200. It is a replacement inner tube that fits inside of a 4 inch diameter opening on the outer tube on the trailer. I have linked a video review for you.

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.)

For example you would not install a gooseneck hitch if you want to tow a 5th wheel trailer because you would have to add in an adapter of some kind. Adapters mean more expense, more stress on the trailer, and not as secure of a connection. For a 5th wheel trailer I recommend a fixed 5th wheel trailer hitch and a Sidewinder....
