  • Recommended Under-Bed Mounting Kit for a 2011 Ram 3500 Dually
  • The correct B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for your 2011 Ram 3500 will depend on if you have a diesel or gasoline engine. If you have the diesel engine then you are going to want to use part # BWGNRK1313 but if you have a gasoline engine you are going to want to use part # BWGNRK1308. Once this is installed you could then use the Andersen Ultimate Hitch that attaches to the gooseneck ball. However, the Pullrite ISR would not work for you as it attaches to industry...

  • Recommended Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch and 5th Wheel Hitch for 2013 Ford F-250
  • For your 2013 Ford F-250 it sounds like you are looking for a gooseneck hitch that stores flat. If that is the case, I recommend the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1111. This is a custom fit for your truck frame and will allow you to use 5th wheel hitch # BWRVK3500 for a long bed or # BWRVK3400 for a short bed sliding hitch to allow turning clearance. The gooseneck hitch serves as the underbed mount for these hitches. I also recommend the wiring harness...

  • Will Airbags Work with a Gooseneck Hitch on a 2016 Ford F-150
  • The only airbag system we offer that will work with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNRK1115 while installed on your 2016 Ford F-150 is the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs part # AL57268 for 2WD models or part # AL57284 for 4WD models. The Bargman 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness part # 50-97-410-010 is indeed an excellent choice for your F-150 and will work well for you.

  • I compared the installations for the B&W gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1313 and Air Lift air bag kit # AL88297 for your 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 and they will work with each other. The upper air bag brackets mount to the bottom of the factory bump stop platform and the hitch brackets mount to the sides of the frame rails so there will not be any interference.

  • Comparison of Gooseneck Hitch Balls to Fit Ram Truck with Factory Goosneck Package
  • The Curt # C60618, Reese # RP30140, and B&W # BWGNXA2062 hitch balls that fit the factory gooseneck hitch in your Ram are all great quality. There are a few differences though, mainly the way the ball is locked into place. The Curt has an integrated lever in the top of the ball that activates the ball bearings in the shank. The lever is made of steel and very easy to access and use. The Reese ball has a similar lever only you pull and turn it. It's also made of plastic intead of steel...

  • B&W Turnoverball Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-350 without Factory Rail Kit
  • The correct B and W Turnoverball rail kit for your 2017 Ford F-350 without the factory rail kit is the part # BWGNRK1117. Since we don't know for sure if the hitch previously installed in your truck bed was a B and W all we can say is that the hole is the truck bed is very likely to match up with this rail kit since most are very universal in how they install but we can't say for certain. Since these actually attach to the frame of the truck the truck bed is not really a factor for the...

  • What is the Height of the Hitch Ball in the B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit # BWGNXA2061
  • I went out to the warehouse and found that the height of the hitch ball in the B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit # BWGNXA2061 for your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 measured 5-3/4" from the bottom of the platform to the top of the hitch ball. I have attached a photo demonstrating this for you. As of right now we carry 3 Reese Goose Box pin boxes that replace the following pin box numbers: Lippert 20K 1621 and 0719 - # RP94623 Lippert 16K 1621 - # RP94622 Lippert 16K 1716 - # RP94622-61301 You...

  • What is the Mounting Tab Spacing of Reese Elite Series Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch RP30845
  • For the aftermarket Reese Elite under bed puck systems the pucks are spaced 13 inches apart front to back on center and 30 inches apart side to side on center which is what Gooseneck Adapter # RP30845 measures as well. So it does sound like you have the Elite system in your truck and can use # RP30845. I can verify this if there is a part number on your hitch but I am confident that you have the Elite system.

  • Will Other Curt Gooseneck Balls Work With The Curt Ball And Safety Chain Loop Kit - Item # C60692
  • I contacted the manufacturer and the The Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loop Kit, Item # C60692, only works with the pop-in ball that comes with the kit. This gooseneck ball is easy to insert and remove because of the ball bearing system that holds the ball in place inside the receiver. An integrated lever releases the ball for easy removal. I have attached some videos that give more details for you to check out.

  • Fifth Wheel Or Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2004 GMC Sierra 2500HD
  • If you have a long bed 2004 GMC Sierra 2500HD then a gooseneck hitch is a viable option. If instead you have a short bed the fifth wheel setup is the way to go as this route allows options to give a short bed truck turning clearance. So for a gooseneck hitch we have the Curt part # C60712 which is a confirmed fit and would work well. If you need a short bed solution the Pro Series Slider Hitch part # PS30121 with the fifth wheel rail kit part # RP30035 would be a great option that...

This will give your truck bed a set of industry standard fifth wheel rails for a hitch to attach to. The other option would be a Companion hitch that fits your gooseneck hitch directly. So if you have a short bed truck you'd need a slider hitch to allow you the turning clearance you'd need. For that we have the B and...

  • In order to gain additional height between the bedsides of your vehicle and nose of your trailer while using a Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter like part # RP94623, I recommend using an above bed gooseneck hitch like the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # RP58079.

  • Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate Installation Weight Capacity
  • Curt says the Gooseneck Flat Plate # C65500 can be installed to the frame rails with a minimum of six 1/2 inch Grade 5 mounting bolts, but that would not allow the plate to meet the 30,000 lbs. GTW rating. They have not tested the plate by itself so it is not rated for a certain capacity. The strength of the gooseneck plate comes from the mounting crossbars and the frame itself, so the capacity would vary greatly depending on your installation. The product can most likely pull a light...

  • Can Gooseneck Hitch Be Installed on a 1995 F-350 7.3 Dually with Air Lift Air Bags Installed
  • No, the Air Lift frame brackets are in the location on the truck frame that the gooseneck hitch frame brackets need. This is going to be the case for any of the gooseneck trailer hitches for your 1995 Ford F-350. You could replace the air bags with a different helper spring system.

For a similar option you could use SuperSprings # SSA22 which will work with or without top overload springs. You...

  • Towing Capacity of 2014 GMC 2500 for Gooseneck Trailer
  • Any vehicle's towing capacity is determined by the auto maker based on the specific equipment in it. Tow rating is determined by not just engine size, but also by the transmission, rear axle ratio, bed length and cab style. The surest way to know a vehicle's towing capacity is to find the driver's door jamb sticker. Find the GCWR (gross combined weight rating) and from this subtract the GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating). The difference is the maximum trailer weight that can be towed....

  • Lightest 5th Wheel and Install Kit for a 2018 Ford F-150 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • For your 2018 Ford F-150 with 6-1/2 foot bed the lightest set up is going to consist of Pro Series 15K hitch # PS30094 with semi-custom installation kit # RP30035-31. The hitch weighs under 130 pounds and the install kit is under 62 pounds. However I do recommend going with hitch # PS30857 even though it is a little heavier and just under 148 pounds. The reason is that the 15K uses a slide-bar jaw which allows for a lot of movement of the trailer king pin in the hitch creating back and...

  • You are smart to check ahead of time on the compatibility of a rear axle air bag kit with an in-bed hitch such as the B&W Turnoverball Under-bed gooseneck # BWGNRK1059. Some air bag kits work fine with in-bed hitches but not all of them! If you have a 1500HD or 1500LD 4WD you can use AirLift kit # AL57272. To make the most of the air bag installation I recommend including an on-board compressor kit # AL25870. This allows you adjust bag pressure on the fly which makes it MUCH easier...

  • For your 2018 Ford F-150 with 5.5 foot bed, the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1115 is the correct fit. You will want to use the 4 inch offset ball # BWGNXA4085 because the bed is shorter than 6 feet.

  • Is Drilling Allowed On The Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate?
  • Because the Curt Flat Plate Gooseneck # C65500 is a multi-fit application that can be used on a cab and chassis truck. Typically, the plate would be placed on top of the flat bed over the rear axle. The Universal Rail Kit, part # C61502 can be used to provide the under bed bracing. Holes would be drilled through the plate, through the bed and into the frame members and the rail kit. On that particular question, there were no custom fit gooseneck hitches that customer's vehicle.
