Review of B and W Accessories and Parts BWGNRC816

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the 30,000 weight capacity.Now, this is a custom-fit part. It is designed to fit the 2017 and newer Ford F250, F350, and F450 two-wheel drive Super Duty trucks without the factory towing prep package. On a custom-fit part like this, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you if this'll work for your application.Now, this is nice heavy duty underbed hitch that lets you tow your gooseneck trailer. What's nice about this is you can get complete truck bed access when you're not towing, because you can just remove the ball from hitch, flip it upside down, drop it right back into the hitch for storage. I'm just going to show you how to do that. Pull your handle out.

Rotate it to hold it in the open position. Pull the ball right out. Just flip it upside down. There's a little handle here you can hold onto. Drop the ball back in for storage, release the handle, and it locks into place, and now you have complete truck bed access.There is a pin, a 5/8" thick spring-loaded steel locking pin, that's on the end of this handle.

It goes all the way through ball to secure it into place. This handle is accessible at your rear driver's-side wheel well.If you notice, it has this nice single piece machined ball receiver socket in the hitch. It provides rugged durability. And I just want to show you on the ball itself, when you pull it out, you'll notice it has a square ball base. That's to prevent the ball from turning in the hitch during hookup.If you notice, what they do is they chamfer off the corners here.

The reason they do that is so there's no dirt or grime buildup when you drop this ball in. If it was a real snug fit, the dirt, the grime that would build up would make it hard to get in and out, so with the corners chamfered like that, it lets that dirt and grime fall right through.Now, they do offer specially designed accessories, which we do sell separately on our website, that make it very easy that you can customize this hitch to fit your needs. If by chance you wanted to tow a fifth wheel trailer, they offer a B&W companion fifth wheel hitch adapter. Basically what that is, it's a fifth wheel hitch that has a center square post on it, so you can put that in your truck bed, drop that square post in here, rotate your handle, and it'll lock it into place. Then you can tow a fifth wheel trailer with that item.

Again, we do sell that separately on our website.If you notice, it has the spring-loaded safety chain hookups right here that are built in.It's a very simple installation. Now, to install this into your vehicle, it does require a custom installation kit. We do sell that separately on our website. It's part number BWGNRM1117. That installation kit will allow you to install this in your vehicle. Now, we also sell it as a complete kit, including this hitch and that installation kit. That's also sold separately. It's BWGNRK1116. Now, when you do install this, it does require a 4" diameter hole must be cut into your truck bed to access the opening, and then four 1/2" diameter holes for these safety chain U-bolts.These parts are all powder-coated steel, which is sturdy, corrosion resistant. They are made in the U.S.A.A few specs again. The gross towing weight capacity is 30,000 pounds. Tongue weight capacity is 7,500 pounds. And the ball size diameter on this gooseneck ball is your standard 2-5/16 diameter.But again, just to show you, if you're going to go tow a gooseneck . whoop, let's open the handle first. Pull out your handle, and then just rotate it to the back, and you got to hold it in the open position. Take your ball, drop it right into place. Release your handle, and that pin will lock it in. You're ready to go. Then when you're not towing, again, just rotate it out into the open position. Flip the ball over. Drop it for storage. Rotate your handle, and just like that, full truck bed access.But that should do it for the review on the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the 30,000 weight capacity.
