Designed for use with your Hide-A-Goose gooseneck hitch from Bulldog, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, or Reese, this ball extender moves the pivot point of your trailer 5" rearward to provide additional cab clearance.


It was almost terrible, but ended up great. I Georgia company much more on how they conduct themselves when things don't quite go right rather than when they go perfectly. It's easy to look like a rockstar when everything is perfect, but it is much harder to be a quality company when things don't go your way. This time around I was accidentally shipped the wrong part for an upcoming trip in a couple of days, I was able to get a hold of my original sales representative Cassandra and she was able to identify and rectify the issue and time for a very important cross country trip. Her courtesy and professionalism throughout the entire experience was exemplary and has earned this company a loyal customer. I will certainly buy more equipment especially from Cassandra she did an excellent job.


The 5” offset ball did not fit my 2016 Ram 2500 so I had to send it back. I hope it will not be necessary when my gen-y hitch arrives.


E trailers help me find what I needed. Had it delivered lickety split. Excellent service


Went line to find an offset ball hitch found at it was quick and easy. The hitch arrived quickly and the quality is fantastic!!


Items where shipped and delivered fast. Just took 3 days..
Items look to b in excellent condition. Can't wait to install. I will b looking to purchase future accessories from etrailer with this kind of service...


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

Jon R.


Great product works very well and gets the job done thanks again.


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.

Brian B.


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.


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!


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


Perfect offset.


Great products, and the best customer service out there! Will always be my go-to for any towing and trailer needs!


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 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!!!


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


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


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


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


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!


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


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.


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



works good. happy with the purchase.


this part is HEAVY DUTY!! looks great. no problems with this part

Daryl T.


fits great, works great. Pull a pretty heavy 5th wheel rv. No problems so far....BUY IT!!!!

  • 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.

  • Gooseneck Hitch, Wiring, Brake Controller and Spring Kit on 2014 Silverado 1500 with 5-1/2-Foot Bed
    For your 5-1/2-foot bed 2014 Silverado 1500 I suggest the Draw-Tite Gooseneck hitch # 9465-54 along with the Offset Ball # 19308 and wiring harness # C56000. For a trailer brake controller I suggest the highly-reliable Prodigy P3 # 90195 along with the quick-connect install harness # 3016 which plugs in under the dash. The P3 offers easier installation and set-up than most other controllers and it has a legendary reputation for reliability. An install video for the P3 is included for...

  • 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....

  • Turning Clearance for Gooseneck Trailer
    You can refer to the linked diagram for general guidelines about minimum clearances required when towing. If you have 8 or 9-inches of vertical clearance between the bed rails and the trailer you should be fine since 6-inches is considered adequate in most cases. As for clearance at the back of the cab, if your trailer has only the standard gooseneck tube structure in the front (and no enclosed trailer structure near it) cab-to-trailer turning clearance should not be an issue. If the trailer...

  • Best Way To Add Turning Clearance To a 2010 Ford F-150 5-1/2 Bed with Gooseneck Camper Trailer
    The gooseneck trailer hitches available for your 2010 Ford F-150 are all going to place the hitch ball in about the same spot which is either directly on top of or just in front of the rear axle. Therefore, there is not really a gooseneck trailer hitch that will give you better turning clearance. However, if you use the the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # 9465-37 which is what I recommend then you can add the 5" Offset Ball for Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Trailer Hitches...

  • 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.

  • Will Replacing Trailer Pin Box To Goose Box Allow 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 Short Bed To Make Sharp Turns
    You can replace the king pin on your fifth wheel trailer with a Goose Box. To find the right replacement you need to know what pin box is currently installed. For example, if you have a Lippert 1621 pin box you would replace it with part # RP85FR. Installing a Goose Box does not offer additional clearance for short bed trucks above what the stock pin box would offer. To get extra clearance you would need to use an offset gooseneck ball, if available for the gooseneck trailer hitch you...

    Hi Vince, Gen-Y switched production to the newer Snap Latch in December 2023 so anything manufactured from January 2024 and forward would come with the new latch. This is a direct-ship item so you'd be getting it directly from the factory, which would lead to a greater chance that you'll get the Snap Latch since we almost a few months into the year.

  • Will Using Reese Goose Box Allow Clearance When Turing With a 2014 Ram 2500 With 6 Ft. Bed
    The Reese Goose Box, # RP85FR, 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...

  • Ball Hole Location When Installing a Draw-Tite Gooseneck Trailer Hitch on a 2005 Chevy Silverado
    Normally, the center of the gooseneck ball will be directly above or slightly forward, within an inch or 2, of the center of the axle but it is possible that on some trucks it could be more forward. On the 2005 Chevy Silverado, the instructions, linked for you, state that the hole should be 44-1/2 inches from the rear of the bed on a short box, and 49-3/8 inches on a long box. The measurements are from the end of the bed, not the tailgate, to the center of the hole. If you measure on your...

  • Will the Reese Goose Box # RP94716-61301 Work with a 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with 6.6 Foot Bed
    The Goose Box will not extend your king pin any further than the OEM Lippert 1716 pin box it replaces. To determine if it will provide enough clearance for turns, you will need to take a few measurements and make a few calculations. You will need to measure the distance between the center of the existing gooseneck ball and the rear of the truck cab. If the king pin extends past the front face of the trailer, the distance it extends should be added to the distance from the cab to the ball....

  • Correct Gooseneck Hitch For 2017 Ford F-350 For Use With Offset Ball

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.

    Are you wanting to pull a 5th wheel hitch or a gooseneck hitch or both? The best way to pull any type of trailer is with a hitch designed for that type of trailer. 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....
