  • Could Curt Spyder Gooseneck Adapter 16085 Fit in Rails Pullrite Superglide Fit
  • Pullrite does have a line of hitches that fit industry standard rails like what the part # 16085 is designed to fit. If you had the Superglide 2700 hitch and a rail kit that fit that hitch then yes the adapter would work. One easy way to determine what you have would be to measure the distance between the centers of the rails. If they are 22 inches and look like what I attached a picture of then this adapter will work.

  • What is a Cab and Chassis Truck for When Picking Out Gooseneck Hitch
  • Can and chassis trucks are trucks that were sold without a truck bed installed. They have narrower frames too at 34 inches from outside to outside. These trucks were typically sold to have a service body installed on them. Since you said you have an 8 foot bed you wouldn't have a cab and chassis truck and the # C61652-636 would fit.

  • Can B&W Turnoverball # BWGNRK1111 Install in 2016 Ford F-250 with Drop In Bed Liner
  • When installing the B and W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1111 in your 2016 Ford F-250 with a drop in bedliner you'll have to cut out the center of the liner to allow the gooseneck ball to pass through. If you were to ever want to use a Companion hitch like the part # BWRVK3400 you'd need to trim the hole back larger so that the hitch can make complete contact with the floor. Install time wouldn't be too bad but it depends on how quickly you work. Most would knock this out in...

  • Best Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Ram 2500 6-1/2 Foot Bed with RamBox
  • The gooseneck trailer hitch I recommend for your 2018 Ram 2500 with the 6-1/2' and RamBox is the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNRK1384. The reason I recommend this gooseneck hitch is because unlike the other options for your truck it has a standard release lever which may take a bit more work to remove but the hitch ball is much less likely to get stuck due to a damaged ball and would also be more cost effective to replace. The other key notes about the...

This hitch will also install in your '12 Sierra without needing to drill into your frame brackets; I have added a link to a video of this hitch being installed...

  • Will the Curt Double Lock Gooseneck Hitch 60713 Fit a 1998 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup
  • I just spoke with my contact at Curt and they informed me that the Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store Underbed Gooseneck Hitch part # C60713 will fit a 1998 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup with the stepside bed. The only issue you are going to run into with an in-bed hitch on a stepside is bedside clearance with a 5th wheel trailer. There should not be any issues whatsoever with a gooseneck trailer. The only other item I recommend for your truck for pulling a gooseneck trailer is an in-bed...

  • What is the Maximum Gooseneck Towing Capacity of a 2001 Ford F-350 with 7.3L Diesel
  • The only true way to find out the gooseneck towing capacity of your 2001 Ford F-350 is to subtract the gross vehicle weight (GVW) from the gross combined weight rating (GCWR) which should both be displayed on the white sticker inside your door jamb. This is the correct procedure to determine gooseneck towing capacity according to the diesel supplement for your owner's manual. They do not give exact figures for this as it will vary by vehicle. If you do not already have a gooseneck trailer...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-150
  • Looks like the total weight of your trailer when loaded will be around 5,000 lbs based on the numbers you listed. A 1/2 ton truck would do just fine with that. The new Ford F-150's do have great towing capacities and would easily tow a 5,000 lb gooseneck trailer. If you went with a 2018 Ford F-150 the B and W hitch part # BWGNRK1115 would be a great option confirmed to fit. The hitch ball is easy to flip over when not needed and the hitch is really well made. It's also made in the USA. For...

  • Determining if Curt Gooseneck Hitch Will Fit 2006 GMC Sierra Short Bed with Transfer Tank
  • The center of the hitch ball for the Curt Double Lock Flip and Store Gooseneck Hitch # C60712 will be located 35 inches back from the cab of your 2006 GMC Sierra with the short bed. Since the ball shank requires a 4 inch diameter hole to be drilled into the bed you can subtract 2 inches from this measurement to see where the front edge (toward the cab) of the hole will be. What you can do is take this measurement (33 inches) out from the back of your cab to make sure there won't be interference...

  • Best Gooseneck Hitch for a 2019 Ram 1500 5-1/2 Foot Bed with Air Ride

Please keep in mind that as you have a 5-1/2' bed, clearance between the cab of the vehicle and loft of the trailer may be limited so I recommend looking into the Offset Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNXA4685 for additional clearance.

If you let me know what the year/make/model is for your pickup I can confirm what the correct B&W gooseneck hitch is. I do recommend also installing a 7-Way like the Bargman # 50-97-410 in the bed of your pickup if you don't already have one. This simply tees into the US Car Connector behind the 7-Way that currently sits near your...

  • Where to Drill the Hitch Ball Hole for the Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch on a 2014 Ford F-250
  • I assume you are referring to the 3-1/2" diameter hole for the gooseneck hitch ball on the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Installation Kit part # 9460-49. If that is the case then on your 2014 Ford F-250 with the 8' long bed you will need to mark and drill a 1/4" hole 46-3/16" from the rear of the bed and centered between the wheel wells. Using a 3-1/2" diameter hole saw, enlarge the pilot hole to the final diameter hole size. When you get to the point of drilling...

  • Dimension for Where to Install Curt Gooseneck Hitch Ball in Bed of 2014 Ford F-150 Short Bed
  • The Curt gooseneck hitch part # C60720 only fits the 6-1/2 foot and 8 foot bed models of the 2014 Ford F-150 like yours so that is why they only list a long and short bed measurement for the ball hole. For the long bed trucks the ball hole will get drilled 96 inches back from the truck cab and for the short bed trucks it will be 35 inches. The dimension needs to be centered from left to right as well.

  • Does the Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Come with a Hitch Ball
  • The Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # 6300-4456 comes with the 2-5/16" gooseneck hitch ball. Therefore, you do not need to purchase the gooseneck hitch ball separately. This kit is a custom fit for your 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 and will not require any drilling into the frame rail. It has a removable gooseneck hitch ball and comes with a lifetime warranty. Since you will be installing a gooseneck trailer hitch in your truck bed, I also recommend you add an in-bed wiring harness...

This or any other gooseneck hitch should line up with the dimple in the bed but there can be slight variances between trucks. The ball position after installation will be directly over or just slightly forward of the rear axle centerline. The linked install video shows you the complete...

  • Where is Gooseneck Ball Hole Drilled to Install B and W Turnoverball in Bed of 1998 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The correct B and W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch for your 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 is the part # BWGNRK1394 and the measurements to use vary depending on your bed length. You'll want the hole centered from left to right but from the rear edge of the truck bed the hold would be 48-3/8 inches if you have a long bed or 44-3/8 inches if you have a short bed. I attached a picture that I took from the install instructions which shows this as well.

  • Can 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 5-1/2 foot Bed Tow Gooseneck Trailer
  • For a truck like your 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 that has a 5-1/2 foot bed it's typically not recommended to try and tow a gooseneck or fifth wheel hitch trailer. Unless the nose is tapered like a stock trailer where there's essentially no nose you'll have turning clearance issues. If the nose is tapered like that we have the Curt gooseneck hitch part # C615-632 as a confirmed fit which will work well. This hitch gives you a setup where you can flip the ball upside down when not needed and is...

  • Can the Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate 65500 be Installed Directly on the Frame Rails
  • The Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate part # C65500 is 48" long x 13" wide. If the frame rails on your cab and chassis will allow for you to bolt the plate directly to them then yes, this is possible though it would not allow for the maximum gross trailer weight rating. In order to obtain the maximum gross trailer weight rating you would also need to use the Universal Folding Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit part # C61502 which will provide a brace that runs along the underside of the Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate.

This, along with the powder-coated steel construction of the hitch, is why it is considered by many to be the best gooseneck hitch available. The Turnoverball has been widely praised by our customers...

  • Recommended Truck for Towing a 20,000 lb 5th Wheel Trailer
  • There are many Heavy Duty/Super Duty 1 ton trucks that can tow 20,000 lb 5th wheel campers cross country. I recommend getting a long bed truck and getting the factory prep package so you will have a clean bed for other uses when not towing. If you do this, you will need to get a 5th wheel hitch compatible with the puck system in the truck you choose or at least get the rail adapter if you already have a hitch compatible with the trailer weight.

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.

  • Your 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 has a Reese Elite rail kit installed in it. The correct adapter you need to convert the rail kit to a gooseneck ball is the Reese Elite adapter part # RP30845. Curt does not offer an adapter that is similar that would fit what you have but the # RP30845 is exactly what you are looking for and would work well. This adapter has more capacity than you will need too at 25,000 lb.

  • The issue you are going to run into when towing a 5th wheel trailer with a short bed truck regardless of whether or not you are using a gooseneck adapter is cab clearance. In order to execute a full 90 degree turn you will need to have a certain amount of clearance between the cab of your truck and the loft of the trailer which is simply not sufficient when using a short bed truck without a sliding 5th wheel hitch or rotating pin box in certain cases.
