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).

2015 Dodge Ram Pickup

Installation in 4 hours might be realistic for a shop, but my old tired bones required a bit more time. Everything lined up and fit my 2015 Ram 2500. The quality of the components are far superior to anything Chinese.

I suggest air tools if you have them, and something to lift the 5th Wheel base into your truck bed unless you feel like a baddass today.

I didn't run into any problems because I read the instructions BEFORE I started. Everything I needed to know was right there!




by:

Love the hitch, and the unobstructed bed when I’m not towing.




by:

Very fast delivery. Excellent product, would have given 5 stars except for the paint or power coat quality was poor along all narrow edges. Really appreciated the installation video.
Overall good experience.

Both part numbers are the correct fit for your 2014 Ram 2500 short bed truck though. For a Companion hitch when you are ready you would need...

  • Will B&W Companion Slider Work on 2016 Ram 2600 With Large Tires
    It is possible with any 5th wheel hitch that tires as large as your means your set up won't be level. But really that depends on your pin box height and if you can adjust it. The B&W Companion slider has a hitch height that can be as low as 17 inches, so you need to weigh that consideration against the height of your pin box. It is likely that you will need to make adjustments to your pin box height or raise your 5th wheel to make sure you tow level. To use the B&W set up on your 2016...
