Best 2014 Ram 2500 Gooseneck Options

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be looking at the best gooseneck options for our 2014 Ram 2500.While all of these will work with your Ram 2500 to allow you to haul a gooseneck trailer, there are some key differences that'll set them apart. The biggest difference is going to be their towing capacities. Both our B&W and our Curt are going to have a max towing limit of 30,000 pounds and a max vertical load limit of 7,500 pounds, while our Draw-Tite's going to be a little bit less with a maximum towing capacity of 20,000 pounds and a maximum vertical load limit of 5,000 pounds. It is always recommended to check your vehicle owner's manual to make sure it's not going to exceed any of its towing or load limit capacities.Now, what's really nice about the way all of these goosenecks install on our Ram 2500 is that there's no additional rail kit required. Most other vehicles require this additional rail kit, whereas our Ram 2500 has an existing rail system already included in the vehicle where these will just bolt right up to it using the hardware provided. Now, you will still need to drill your holes for your safety chains and ball, but there'll be no frame drilling which saves a lot of time.


B and W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 GMC Sierra 3500

Speaker 1: Today on our 2012 GMC Sierra 3500, we're going to be installing the B&W Turnoverball under-bed gooseneck trailer hitch. Part number BWGNRK1012. This what our hitch looks like when it's installed. The great thing about this hitch is it's going to be an under-bed setup. It's going to give you total access inside your bed. This is going to be your center section.



Curt Double Lock Flip and Store Underbed Gooseneck Hitch Installation - 2013 Toyota Tundra

Speaker 1: Today on our 2013 Toyota Tundra we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Curt double lock flip and store underbed Gooseneck hitch with installation kit, part number C60751. Here's what our Curt double lock Gooseneck hitch looks like once we have it fully installed on our Tundra and this is gonna allow us to tow a Gooseneck trailer safely and securely down the road. What's really gonna set this Gooseneck hitch apart is the double pin design, we're gonna have two pins going into our Gooseneck ball opposed to one for that added stability. Another feature that I really like about this is the chrome trim ring that Curt includes gives it that nice flush, low profile design and it also compliments and matches the chrome plated two and 5-16ths ball.Our Gooseneck is gonna have 7,500 pound vertical load limit along with a 30,000 pound gross trailer weight rating. Now I always want to recommend that you double check your Tundra's owners manual and you don't exceed the manufacturers recommended weight. Our Gooseneck is gonna feature spring loaded safety chains that are automatically gonna go back down when we're not using them, simply pull up.


Curt Double Lock Flip and Store Underbed Gooseneck Hitch Installation - 2007 Toyota Tundra

Speaker 1: Today on our 2007 Toyota Tundra, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the curt double lock, flip and store under bed gooseneck hitch, part number C 60751. Speaker 2: This is what our gooseneck looks like when it's installed from underneath the vehicle. This is going to be a custom fit for this truck. It's going to be a black powder coat finish, so it's going to resist any rust and corrosion.As far as the installation goes, it is a fairly straightforward installation. It's going to come with all necessary hardware. The only drilling you're going to have to do is for the center hole and for your two safety chain hooks.

  • Tips for Removing Stuck Gooseneck Hitch Ball
  • The first thing you will need to do is apply liberal amounts of spray lubricant to all of the moving parts that seem stuck. Sometimes it helps to apply some, wait an hour or so and apply more and then do whatever it takes to pry the ball out. If you can access the bottom of the hitch from underneath the truck bed try hitting it with lubricant from that angle as well. You may also be able to get a decent amount of force applied from here as well to get the hitch out. The more lube...

  • Recommended Best Truck For Towing 20,000-Lb Gooseneck Trailer
  • When asked for our recommendation about trucks that are towing fifth wheel or gooseneck trailers, most of the time we will recommend 1-ton trucks with an 8-ft bed and a diesel engine. The truck I recommend is the Ram 3500 Dually Tradesman with a 6.7 Cummins diesel and a 4.10 axle ratio. The towing capacity for this truck is 31,210 lbs. With a 3.73 axle ratio the towing capacity is 25,910 lbs. So if you plan on towing anything bigger than the trailer you are pulling I would go with...

  • Installation of the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part # 9464-35, will require using a hole saw to drill into the bed of your Dodge Ram pickup. You will need to measure, mark, and drill a quarter inch hole, then use a hole saw to cut the hole out for the gooseneck ball. If you have a 6 foot bed, you will measure 44 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed and centered between the wheel wells. If you have an 8 foot bed, you will measure 46 inches from the rear edge...

  • How to Tell if 2017 Ford F-250 has Factory Rail Kit/Factory Prep Package
  • The factory rail kit is also known as the factory prep package on your 2017 Ford F-250. The difference is that the prep package includes the 4 holes plus the gooseneck hitch ball hole in the center. You can see an example of this in the attached video. If you do not have the factory rail kit (or factory prep package) then you will not have the 5 holes in your truck bed. If you do have the factory rail kit then you can just purchase the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loop Kit # C60692...

  • Comparison of Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Hitch For 2003 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Diesel Truck
  • Yes, there are fifth-wheel to gooseneck adapters and we do carry them. Gooseneck hitches are typically used to haul construction or agricultural trailers and fifth-wheel hitches are mainly used to haul campers. Gooseneck hitches are usually rated to haul 25,000 to 30,000 pounds, some fifth-wheel hitches are capable of doing the same, but other fifth-wheel hitches are rated lower. When towing, your towing setup is only as strong as the weakest towing component, whether it is your hitch,...

  • What Underbed Support Is Needed For Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate, # C65500, To Meet Maximum GTW Rating
  • I called Curt on the Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate, # C65500, and they said that the plate 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. To be able to meet the 30,000 lbs. GTW rating you will have to install the Curt flat plate with the Curt Universal Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit, # C61502. This kit will install under the bed to the frame rails and give the extra reinforcement that...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali Crew Cab With Factory Prep Package
  • For your 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali, I recommend the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loop Kit for Factory Chevy and GM Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # C60692. This is a confirmed fit for your factory prep package. This ball and loop kit are rated for 30,000lbs so you will be limited by your truck capacity not the hitch. To give you easy access to connect your trailer wiring of your 2014 Coachmen Brookstone, I recommend the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness w/ 7-Pole...

  • Solution for Safety Chains that Won't Fit Ram Hitch Prep Safety Chain Loops
  • The safety chain loops that come with the # RP30140 that you referenced are shaped in such a way that they won't allow any and all safety chains to attach to them. We have found that the safety chains part # FCHA0070324 will fit the loops though so your best option at this point will be to replace the chains on your trailer. These chains have a ridiculously high capacity of 45,200 lbs so they would work very well for you.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for Cab and Chassis Truck
  • 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. At least six 1/2 inch grade 5 bolts need to be used to fasten the plate to the rail kit. At this time there...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Ford F150 Supercrew with 5.5 Ft Bed
  • I spoke with my contact at B&W and the Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Custom Installation Kit, # BWGNRK1104, is compatible with your 2014 Ford F-150 with the 5-1/2 ft bed. Please keep in mind that since you have the 5-1/2 ft bed, you will have limited turning clearance and it is recommended to use the 4 Inch Offset Ball, # BWGNXA4085, to increase your turning clearance. I have attached a couple of videos which may be helpful.

  • 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...

  • Do Curt Gooseneck Hitches # C607-604 and # C611-624 Both Fit 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • Realistically there isn't a noticeable difference between the two Curt gooseneck hitches that both fit your 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. Both the # C607-604 and # C611-624 are a great fit that will for all intents and purposes work just as well as the other. For the most part the EZr is a smaller version that very similar but slightly different ball.

  • Options for Towing 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailers with the Same Truck

If you already have a gooseneck hitch installed, we offer several different adapters that will allow you to tow a fifth wheel using a gooseneck ball. The Rapid Hitch Ranch Hitch adapter, part # AM3100 is one of our best sellers, but keep in mind that using the adapters can void some fifth wheel warranties because of the extra stress they can place on the frame of the fifth...

What he suggested first is to go underneath the truck where the hitch is installed and clean and lubricate all of the moving parts of the hitch. Then, try to move the levers and other moving parts back and forth to get the ball to move. If you can free the ball, make sure to clean inside the...
