B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch

B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch

Not only does this kit provide you with a sturdy, custom base for installing your Companion fifth-wheel trailer hitch in the bed of your truck, but it also doubles as one of the most recognizable gooseneck hitches on the market. This fifth wheel installation kit actually is the Turnoverball gooseneck hitch from B&W.


Gooseneck Specs:

  • Gross towing weight: 30,000 lbs
  • Vertical load limit: 7,500 lbs
  • Ball size: 2-5/16"

B&W Companion Installed in Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch

With the B&W Turnoverball underbed gooseneck trailer hitch you get the best of both worlds. When you go to tow a gooseneck trailer, the Turnoverball creates a sturdy, dependable connection with your trailer. And when you're done towing, you can stow the ball upside down in the hitch to get full bed access and a clean appearance. When you're ready to tow your fifth wheel trailer, just install the Companion in the ball hole in place of the gooseneck ball and lock the post in place using the built-in handle. You can remove the fifth wheel when you're done towing, leaving your truck bed open once again.


Simple, Custom Installation

This kit is custom designed for your vehicle. The mounting brackets bolt to existing holes in your truck's frame. While some modification is required - you will need to cut a 3-1/2" diameter hole in your bed for the hitch ball and drill holes for the built-in safety chain loops - there is no need to weld onto or to drill into your frame.


Once you have the brackets and center section installed, set up the operating handle. This handle is designed to be accessed from the rear driver's-side wheel well. On the end of the handle is the heavy-duty steel pin that secures the mounting post of the Companion (or the base of the gooseneck hitch ball).

Video Transcript for B and W Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Ram 3500

Speaker 1: Today on this 2018 RAM 3500, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the B&W custom under bed installation kit for B&W companion fifth wheel trailer hitches. Part number BWGNRK1314-5W.This fifth wheel installation kit is designed to let you install your B&W companion fifth wheel trailer hitches. The adapters are part numbers BWRVK3500 or part number BWRVK3400. The under bed design of the kit allows for full truck bed access and when you're ready, it's under five minutes to convert your empty truck bed into a fifth wheel hitch. We'll start off by unlocking our B&W hitch and installing our fifth wheel adapter.We have ours preassembled but you can adjust the uprights here depending on your truck and trailer combination. At this point, the hitch is ready to attach to a trailer.

There's a little clip here that you can release. Basically it's a safety pin. Then you swing the handle out and you watch the jaws open. You're ready to back onto your trailer. Once your secure under your trailer, you can reinstall the clip.

And since this fifth wheel installation kit doubles as a gooseneck hitch, when you're not towing your fifth wheel you can remove it. This frees up the hole to reinsert the hitch ball when you need it. Now we'll go ahead and show you how to install the custom under bed kit for the B&W companion fifth wheel trailer hitches.To begin our install, we find ourselves underneath our truck. We went ahead and removed our spare tire, so we have more room to work. We're going to remove our heat shield for our spare tire now.

There's five bolts that hold it in place. We'll have three right here and then one in this general area here and another one here. They're all the same. So they'll look like this, they're 10 millimeter bolts.With those bolts removed, we can set this aside. Now we need to lower our exhaust.

In order to do that, we need to remove this hanger. So we'll spray a little lubricant on it, so it'll slide off easier. Then we'll use a pry bar to pry it away and off the hanger.Now further up on our tailpipe section by our muffler, there's a clamp that holds the tailpipe into the muffler. There's a 15 millimeter nut. If you loosen this nut, we can remove the tailpipe section and have plenty of room to work. With that loose, we can loosen the clamp. Use a pry bar to just pry it apart. Now we can remove the exhaust.With our exhaust out of the way, we know have a great shot of the hole in the frame of our truck where our gooseneck ball will go through. We need to make a hole in the bed of our truck. Now we'll take our template, stick it inside this hole. It's a nice snug fit and we'll take a small drill bit, make a pilot hole.We find ourselves in the bed of our truck now. Right here in the center, this is where our pilot hole was, where we drilled through our template. Now we need to enlarge this hole to the appropriate size indicated in the instructions, using a hole saw.Now in order to help prevent rust, we'll take some paint and go along the edge where we cut out. If you have a spray in bed liner, you can just use black spray paint. Since we don't, we'll just use clear coat because then you won't be able to tell the difference between any of the colors of your bed.We're back underneath now. We have this bolt bracket here. We're going to slide this on top of our cross member, so that the weld nuts line up with the holes in our cross member. So we'll slide this in from the side over the top of our frame. We'll push it into place. Just like that. We'll do the same for both sides.Now we need to place this spacer block around the hole. This will go between the bed and the cross member. This flat side here, not this side, will face up towards the bed. So we'll find a spot to start sliding it in place. Then we'll make sure it's centered over our hole. All right, that looks pretty good.This is the center section of our gooseneck. We're going to bolt this to those handles that we installed earlier using these bolts. We'll go through these holes. This section here will face towards the driver's side and the offset hole foe the ball, this short end will go towards the front of the truck. We'll have an extra set of hands to help us lift this into place.With one bolt started on each side, it'll hold it's weight up and we can install the rest now. With all of our bolts now in place, we can tighten them down. Now we'll take our carriage bolts and we'll insert them through our handle, may need to pull on the latch a little bit in order to get the bolt through. We'll now take our handle, we'll slide it over the frame of our truck. Flip it up, go over the bolts and we'll secure it with our flange nuts. Now we'll tighten down those nuts. Now we'll torque all of our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions.Now we'll take our template for our safety chain loops. We'll place it so that the holes in our template are closest to the rear of the truck. And we place it over the hole for our gooseneck ball. Take our gooseneck ball and we'll drop it through, making sure that our safety pin is already in place to help hold it up and this will hold our template still. We'll now take a small drill bit and go through the appropriate holes and make a pilot hole. Now there's two layers, we have the truck bed plus the frame to go through. We'll do the same for all four locations.With all of our pilot holes made, we can remove the ball and the template and we'll enlarge these holes to the appropriate size indicated in the instructions. With our holes now enlarged, we'll spray some clear coat around them, so we don't have rust issues. Just like we did with the hole for the gooseneck ball. Now we'll take our safety chain loops and we'll drop those through our holes.Okay underneath the bed of our truck now. These are our safety chain U bolts. Take one of our springs. The small side will face down. Place it over the bolt and we'll thread on one of our nuts. Then we'll repeat this process for all four corners of our U bolts. And now we'll tighten the nuts until they're flush with the end of the U bolts.Now on the driver's side of our vehicle, where the handle is for our gooseneck latch. We'll install the sticker on the frame. This way people know how to operate it properly. Now we can reinstall our exhaust and heat shield. And that completes our look at and installation of the B&W custom under bed installation kit for B&W companion fifth wheel trailer hitches. Part number BWGNRK1314-5W on this 2018 RAM 3500.

Great hitch!Worked out great nice that BW has such good quality control ,it fit better than you could hope for.Only thing I did was drill the 3 1/2 " hole the placed the hitch upside down in the hole ,squared it in the box the marked the 4 safety chain u-bolt holes with a 9/16 " bit ,this gave me the centres of the holes then drilled pilot holes then the 9/16 " holes all from the top in the box.I found that much easier and this worker perfect.Will use etrailer.com again for sure.Keep up the good work. 249642

Installed on 2017 Ram 3500 longbed. Installation took approximately 45 minutes. I just held up hitch and put the bolts in, if you are not comfortable holding 50 ish pounds while starting bolts I’d recommend having a fried help or using a come along from the rafters. Shipping was very quick and packaging was excellent. Pro tip: spend $16 on a good hole saw, cheap hole saws are not worth the time and effort. 601123

I received my BWGNRK1314-5W in 3 days after ordering. Package and contents arrived with no damage. My friend I did watch youtube on how to install for my Ram 3500. We let my truck sit overnight and started the next morning and did remove the spare tire, tire heat shield, and rear exhaust. We put instruction out and went step by step. My friend and I installed the unit in 3 hours. I think having 2 people does help. I am very happy with the unit and etrailer for their help over the phone. I will use etrailer again. 510746

Pretty easy install. Spend the 5 minutes to take the heat shield and spare tire off. The little rubber "gripper" on the handle pulled off the first pull. Maybe B&W could put a little glue on it . 380072

B and W companion 5th wheel hitch on 2016 Ram 3500. Easy install, good directions. 20,000 pound capacity, will easily tow toy hauler. Removes easily to have full bed access or to use the gooseneck hitch which you will need for companion hitches. Very fast delivery. Thank you.

Ordered the B & W under bed 5th wheel/gooseneck adapter with Companion 5th wheel hitch for my new 2016 Ram 3500 4 X 4. Items were delivered on time and in a timely manner. My wife and I installed the under bed adapter in about 3 hours without a hitch! The video's on e trailer's web site were extremely helpful. A helpful hint for buys..... use a nylon strap passing it thru the new hole in the bed down thru the adapter ball hole and attach to a block of wood placed across the ball hole and have you partner pull up into position while supporting and aligning from the bottom side. Makes installing a breeze. Great product and now my bed is clean and can be used without interference of the older universal 5th wheel rails. 284952

I ordered this hitch and the companion to tow a 5th wheel toy hauler eventually. Installation, went according to the instructions with a minor variance. I installed this in a 2015 Ram 3500 with the auto leveling air suspension and had to relocate one electrical wire and one air hose. Having two people to complete the install helped a lot as did removing the spare tire and heat shield. Installing the companion 5th wheel hitch to this was a no brainer. I can't wait to do my first tow with this setup. 237819

Excellent Product, I am using this underbed with a companion 5th Wheel hitch and I love the versatility of the gooseneck or 5th Wheel set-up and also the completely flat,no bars bed when I take of the companion. Install was easy for someone with lots of experience with car modifications and it took me around 2 hours at a slow pace to install. Instructions were clear, maybe a tiny bit unclear for the explanation regarding the pin position for long bed trucks, but videos online clear that up easily. Overall extremely satified with the product, been towing my 5th wheeel with the companion and its been great, companion is SO quiet compared to other 5th Wheel brands, I love it. 209520

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel Installation Kit?


  • Does B&W Turnoverball Goosneck Hitch Work With Demco Adapter on 2014 Ram 3500?
  • There is no difference between # BWGNRK1314-5W and the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1314 other than how they show up in our fit guide. Each will work with the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W along with the Demco 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter # DM6140 that you asked about. These rails are compatible with Demco Hijacker Premier Series, B&W, Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above bed fifth wheel hitches. The Turnoverball...

  • Difference Between B&W Turnoverball Hitches BWGNRK1314-5W and BWGNRK1314
  • They are the exact same hitch. We use different part numbers to put them in two different fitguides. The 5W at the end of part # BWGNRK1314-5W stands for fifth wheel. Since this gooseneck hitch can be used as a gooseneck hitch or as a base for a Companion hitch like the part # BWRVK3500 it can show up in either fitguide.

  • The best fifth wheel hitch for your 2015 Ram 3500 dually with an 8 foot bed is easily the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500-5W because of its impressive jaw system that enhances the connection to your king pin, the cushioned bushings which minimize the noise that often comes with towing a fifth wheel trailer, and its pivoting head which makes connecting your trailer to the hitch easier.

If your truck is equipped with the pucks, you can use either an adapter like part # RP30154, which would allow you to install any fifth wheel hitch that uses industry standard fifth wheel bed rails like part # RP30081.

If you need the ability to make 90 degree turns you will need to go with a set of fifth wheel rails and a slider hitch so that you can gain the needed clearance.

The Reese Gooseboxes are great but they do not provide additional clearance for tight turns. Even with an offset adapter. The Companion was designed to work with the Turnover part # BWGNRK1314-5W that you have installed in your truck currently so it would be an excellent choice.

  • You are correct the part # 16310 will not work for you but I do have a solution. Since you have a B and W Turnover Ball hitch part # BWGNRK1314-5W installed in the bed of your truck you would then want the Companion hitch part # BWRVK3500 which will fit your truck and work well.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Underbed Mount Kit for a 2015 Ram 3500
  • The Husky of the Husky hitch you have is not the same as the current Husky who also makes 5th wheel hitches. the UBS system is a Valley product but Valley has gone out of business so the underbed kits are no longer available. You will not be able to install the old Husky hitch in your new 2015 Ram 3500. There are some below the bed options for a 2015 Ram 3500. For a short bed you can use B&W system # BWGNRK1314-5W and then you would need Companion hitch # BWRVK3500-5W. Another option...

  • Can 5th Wheel Rails/Brackets from 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab Fit 2015 Ram 3500 Dually
  • The Husky 5th wheel installation kits that fit your 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab are parts # HT31413-686 for the no-drill kit and # HT31565-686 for the kit that requires drilling. Neither of these kits is transferrable to your new 2015 Ram 3500 long bed dually. For your new 2015 Ram 3500 dually long bed we offer one installation kit option that is compatible with the dual-rear-wheel configuration and this is part # BWGNRK1314-5W from B & W. This install kit will not work with your industry-standard...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2014 Ram 3500 Long-bed to Tow 15.5K Trailer
  • You are starting off well by using a long-bed 1-ton pickup to pull your 5th wheel. This is the ideal type of truck for 5th wheels since long beds naturally provide good turning clearance and have the muscle to pull heavy trailers. But in terms of the hitch I do recommend using a higher-rated hitch that provides you with some safety margin. You could use a 16K hitch with a 15.5K trailer but you will certainly find you will get a longer working lifespan from a hitch rated for a higher...

  • 2016 Dodge 3500 Long Box with Factory Air Suspension B and W Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Fit
  • I spoke with my contact at B and W to verify the fit of a gooseneck hitch in your truck and the Turnover Ball part # BWGNRK1314-5W that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Ram long bed with factory air suspension. Since you have a long bed truck you would not need a slider hitch so for a stationary hitch you would want the # BWRVK3500. This has a 20k capacity so it would be more than enough.

  • B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch King Pin Location with Axle on 2018 Ram 3500 Long Bed Crew Cab
  • For your 2018 Ram 3500 Crew Cab Long bed, the king pin of your trailer will be centered on your axle. I have attached a photo of the 5th wheel rails # RP30035 you asked from to assist even though the Companion hitch will be slightly different in installation to give you another reference. If you do not have the OEM puck system then you will use the Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWGNRK1314-5W and then hitch # BWRVK3500. If you do have...

  • B and W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ram 3500
  • If your 2016 Ram 3500 has the factory rail kit the correct part number you need to install a Companion hitch is the part # BWRVK3600. If you do not have the rail kit you would need the part # BWGNRK1314-5W to provide you with the rail kit that also doubles as a gooseneck hitch and then for the Companion hitch you would want the part # BWRVK3500.

  • Recommended B&W 5th Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ram 2500 Towing 16K Landmark 365
  • If you need to keep your Ram 3500's bed clear for cargo when you're not 5-ing, the B&W Companion system is an excellent choice. B&W uses a gooseneck hitch/install kit that allows the 5th wheel hitch to be removed when the bed is needed - with no base rails to get in your way. You can use the link provided to select the version of the Ram 3500 that you have to then see B&W hitch options. For example, if you have an 8-foot bed and no factory rail system you can use the 20K hitch # BWRVK3500-5W...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 3500 Without Factory Rail Kit
  • The B and W Companion setup you referenced part number # BWGNRK1314-5W for the rail kit and part # BWRVK3500-5W would be a great setup for your 2015 Ram 3500 long bed without the factory rail kit. The other option you have for an underbed fifth wheel setup would be the Demco Hijacker UMS part # DM8550032 and the Rail kit part # DM8551006. Both of these setups would work great, but the Companion hitch has one of the best reputations on the market so I would recommend you go that route.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for 2016 Ram 3500
  • The B and W Companion hitch setup would work great with an extended Lippert pin box box. For your 2016 Ram 3500 short bed you would need the rail kit/gooseneck hitch part # BWGNRK1314-5W to install the slider hitch. For the hitch you would want the Companion Slider part # BWRVK3500-5W. This hitch is pretty heavy but it can be disassembled to make the install and removal easier. The Companion setup is a favorite among the RV community so I would work well for you.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500 with B and W Turnoverball Hitch Installed
  • Reese does not make an Elite rail kit for your 2017 Ram 3500 without the tow package. Since you already have the Turnoverball rail kit part # BWGNRK1314-5W installed you'd really want the Companion hitch part # BWRVK3500 which fits this directly and has a 20k capacity. Best option for a future Ford truck that calls for a higher rated hitch would be to order the truck with the factory Ford rail kit and then use the Elite hitch part # RP30871 which has a 26,500 lb capacity.

  • Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Recommendations for a 2015 Ram 3500 Long Bed
  • Since you will be towing a gooseneck trailer the best option is going to be a gooseneck hitch. But if you see yourself wanting to tow a 5th wheel hitch in the future I have the perfect solution for you. For your 2015 Ram 3500 long bed I recommend B&W gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1314-5W. Your 2015 Ram already has the supports under the bed to install this hitch. Take a look at the video I have linked showing an example installation. Then, if you ever need to tow a 5th wheel hitch, you...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and/or Gooseneck Hitch for a 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 Crew Cab Short Bed
  • Because a Sidewinder cannot be used with any sort of 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter, the best option is to go with a 5th wheel trailer hitch if you have to use a Sidewinder. The bed liner will most likely have to be trimmed away in the foot print of the rails plus a little extra to account for the pins to secure the 5th wheel hitch. Slide-in bed liners need to be trimmed but spray-in bed liners do not. For your 2014 Ram 3500 short bed you can use Curt installation kit # C16426-204....
