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 4" 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).

Install is possible for one person, much easier with two. It can be done on the ground without removing the spare tire. It took me a little over 3 hours to do alone.

Service was great! Got unit installed in 5hrs, and it fit like a glove.

Sturdy exactly as described. Haven’t used it yet but looking forward to the security it appears to provide.

B&W is the standard bearer of the 5th wheel hitch industry. You can tell It is very well made. It gives me confidence when towing. etrailer made the purchase easy and is my one stop towing equipment provider.

Easy to install and follow installation video in the website. Everything lined up perfectly.

2018 Chevrolet Silverado

Nice looking setup. Took me 6 hours to install the gooseneck, and 5th wheel by myself with no lifting equipment in my 2018 Silverado 3500. Everything lined up nice. It was a bit heavy, but I like a challenge. Suggest not to over compensate for the spray-in bed liner, I wish I would not have added any extra to the dimension given in the install instructions. Haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, as my RV trailer is still at the dealership until spring.

Using this with my Chevy 3500 HD. Was easy to install as per the instructions and online video. Works as advertised!

Fantastic service - placed the order last Friday and received my B&W goose neck hitch and wiring harness the following Tuesday. As soon as I get it installed I will be ordering the B&W companion fifth wheel hitch to go with it.

Solid hitch. Took several hours but install was very straightforward. Tows excellent




by:

Great help over the phone in what would work best for our needs.
But things shipped much later than I was told at the start. I did over the 4 day delivery and the free was waged but it took about 2 weeks to receive. That is why you only got 4 stars!!!

  • Comparing the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch Part # BWGNRK1016 and Part # BWGNRK1016-5W
    There is no difference between the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNRK1016 and part # BWGNRK1016-5W. They are the exact same hitch but with different parts numbers. This hitch is a confirmed fit for your 2016 GMC Sierra 3500.

  • Which B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Part Number Fits 2018 Chevy 2500 HD 6.5 ft Bed for Companion
    Actually the two part numbers are technically the same. We add the -5W to the # BWGNRK1016-5W since it shows up in the fifth wheel fitguide and in the gooseneck hitch fitguide as part # BWGNRK1016. So either part number you order for your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD will give you the same hitch and will be correct to use the B and W Companion part # BWRVK3400 that you are planning on using as well.

  • Can One Towing System Tow Both Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Trailers
    You can install a B&W gooseneck hitch like # BWGNRK1016 in your 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 if the 5th wheel hitch installation kit (not just the hitch itself) has been removed. If there is still an under-bed 5th wheel install kit or an above-bed rail kit installed then a second (gooseneck) set-up cannot also be installed at the same time. There is a way to tow both types of trailer with one set-up. The B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch uses a gooseneck hitch as its installation kit. For gooseneck...

  • Is There a Dual Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Hitch?
    Though there is not a hitch that serves as both a fifth wheel and gooseneck, there is an option that can accommodate both from B&W. For example, if you had a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with an 8' bed and did not have the factory rail kit, the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1016-5W serves as both a heavy-duty gooseneck hitch and mounting rails for what many consider the best fifth wheel available, the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500-5W. This would allow you to use both a gooseneck...

    The fifth wheel hitch I strongly recommend for your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 is the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500-5W. The Companion is considered by many to be the highest-quality fifth wheel hitch available. With well over 350 reviews from customers who have used it, the Companion has gotten a nearly unanimous 5-star rating.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500HD Short Bed without Rail Kit
    For your 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500 short bed without the factory rail kit I would highly recommend the B and W Companion fifth wheel hitch setup as the Companion hitch is regarded by many in the RV community as the nicest fifth wheel hitch around. For that you would want the part # BWRVK3400-5W for the fifth wheel slider hitch and then part # BWGNRK1016-5W for the rail kit. Another really nice benefit to this setup is that when you remove the fifth wheel hitch you also have a gooseneck...

  • B and W Companion Fifth Wheel and Rail Kit Recommendation for 2016 GMC Sierra 2500
    Since you have a short bed truck you are going to need a slider hitch to allow you the needed clearance to make tight turns. Otherwise the nose of the trailer would come into contact with the cab of the truck around tight turns. So for your 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 you would need the rail kit part # BWGNRK1016-5W that also doubles as a gooseneck hitch and then the Slider Companion part # BWRVK3400-5W.

  • Installing A B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch In A B&W Underbed Gooseneck Hitch
    The B&W Companion # BWRVK3500-5W is super easy to install into a B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1016-5W. You'll just need to pull back the locking handle on the hitch and remove the ball. Then simply drop in the # BWRVK3500-5W, which has a post that will fit down into the gooseneck hitch, and pushing the locking handle into the locked position and you'll be ready to couple your 5th wheel trailer to tow.

  • Removable Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed
    For your 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed the best solution for a fifth wheel hitch you could easily remove and have a totally empty truck bed would be with a B and W Companion slider like the part # BWRVK3400-5W and then for the rail kit part # BWGNRK1016-5W. Unlike other options that fit your truck bed this would not require a set of fifth wheel rails in the bed of your truck as it installs into a gooseneck hitch ball shank.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch and Underbed Installation Kit for 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed
    There are options to install an underbed mounting kit for a 5th wheel on your 2019 Silverado 2500, but it does limit your ability to use your old 5th wheel hitch since underbed hitches are all going to mount to different sized "pucks". With that said, the best underbed mounting kit is going to be the B&W Turnoverball Underbed mounting kit # BWGNRK1016-5W, which is custom fit for the 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500. The Turnoverball provides you with a gooseneck hitch, so on top of giving you...

  • 5th Wheel And Gooseneck Hitch Option For A 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 With No OEM Pucks
    As long as your truck doesn't have a body lift, meaning the bed is further away from the truck's frame than stock, you should be fine. The B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3400-5W with the installation kit # BWGNRK1016-5W is exactly what you need. This hitch has a maximum towing capacity of 20,000-lbs, has 3 height setting adjustments to ensure your 5th wheel is as level as possible, and when the 5th wheel is removed, will provide a connection point for a goose ball.

    Both the B&W Gooseneck hitches # BWGNRK1016 and # BWGNRK1016-5W are actually the same thing for your 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500.

    I have a solution for you, but the Curt X5 5th Wheel Rail system # 16310 is not compatible with a B&W Patriot Sliding hitch. Since you already have a B&W Turnoverball system in your bed, the only way to use a sliding hitch would be to use a B&W Companion hitch # BWRVK3400-5W, which are only designed for use with B&W Turnoverball systems.
