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.


Operating Handle

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).

Highly recommend watching etrailer video prior to installing. I dry fitted most items prior to permanently placing and bolting. The bracket wasn't easy but you could defiantly get it done yourself. Everything was built with good quality and beefy where you need it. The latch good be done a little smoother but operates like most fifth wheel releases.

Awesome hitch!! Awesome service and communication from etrailer . Very helpful videos of installing your products. I highly recommend buying from etrailer. In stock with timely shipping. I received my hitch in two days.

Awesome product. Extremely heavy duty construction and expertly designed.



by:

B&W gooseneck hitch and fifth wheel combo was of good quality. Very heavy components but with help, install wasn’t bad. Only 4 stars because it arrived with a considerable amount of cosmetic damage. Parts were banging around in less than adequate packaging. Some filing was necessary on a few mating pieces. Ordering and ship time was excellent. etrailer is the best.



by:

The installation took about 6 hours and I took my time, the only thing I would recommend is checking the threaded holes for weld splatter maybe running a thread chaser in them , I had just one hole that had to be cleaned up and would have been easier on the bench . Other than that everything fit perfect.

The box came taped together and falling apart the parts had no protection from each other. The powder coat is scratched, marred and chipped now I have to prime and paint all the parts before I install them. B&W needs to package there stuff better. I planned to paint the parts for an extra layer of protection as I live in the north east. Now that the powder is chipped I have to do a professional paint job too make this hitch last. Unfortunately B&W is still the best hitch for my application so I’ll buy another one again but I don’t like having to spend a day prepping parts and painting after I paid a premium price for what was supposed to be a premium product.

2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Mu teenage son and I (I have a bad back so not moving to well at the moment) installed the BW underbid kit on 2020 Ford F250 4x4, FX4 SRW, Crew Cab with no issues. We followed instructions and watched video and pretty easy install. On my truck there is No heat shield near spare tire to remove prior to install and we did not remove the exhaust nuts to lower pipes and had no issue getting all brackets installed. We did it on driveway with truck rear tires on truck ramps. Took about 5 hours from start to finish with some breaks in between. I just placed two 8' 2x4's across bed of truck when you get to part using a ratchet strap to lift into 4" hole in bed tightly. works great. High high quality parts........Thx etrailer



by:

Works like a champ. Install was a lot of work and the rear section will block the bolt to remove the right rear shock so make sure you either cut a notch out or plan on keeping your shocks. Torquing to spec gets very tricky with several of the bolts but can be done with a little patience. Operation is very smooth and the hitch itself is bombproof

Had almost no trouble installing Hitch and has worked well



by:
Ford F-350 Super Duty

Works well. Tough install. Best to have another set of hands. Better still if you can do it on a lift. Dont know if all vehicles present same challenges to the install as our F-350 diesel long bed. Most forward outboard drivers side bolt hard to get in or torque. Pretty straightforward though. Took me a couple of hours one day and finished up couple of hours next day. Could have opted for the Ford factory kit, but it required removing the bed and the accompanying labor cost.

This is how I received the box...first I was supposed to receive this item on the 31st of March then I didn't get it until Monday the 3rd. Definitely need to box this heavy stuff much better.



by:

Works fine, good design, was able to install without lifting the bed. Difficult to torqueall bolts, but is installed securely.

  • What is Difference between B and W Turnoverball Kit # GNRK1116 and GNRK1116-5W
    There is no difference between the B and W Turnoverball Gooseneck hitches # BWGNRK1116 and # BWGNRK1116-5W. We have them separated in our fit guides with two different part numbers since it shows up twice in our fitguide. One as a gooseneck hitch and also as a base rail for a Companion fifth wheel hitch.

  • Why Can't Sidewinder be Used with Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The reason a Sidewinder can't be used with the Companion hitches that attach to the truck with a gooseneck ball is because of the additional torque and stress a Sidewinder puts on the hitch compared to a standard pin box since the pivot point is in a different location on the trailer frame. One easy option though is you an lock out the Sidewinder and not use a wedge which essentially turns it into a standard pin box which you can use with the Companion hitch. You would need two 3/4” –...

  • Could Smaller Hole Saw be Used to Install B and W Turnoverball Gooseneck
    Due to slight variances on vehicles the hole saw size for the install of the B and W Turnoverball part # BWGNRK1116-5W is designed to give a little leeway in case the holes don't line up perfectly. The hole is a little bigger so there is a chance you could get away with a smaller hole size but I would recommend the 4 inch.

  • B and W Companion Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed
    For your 2017 Ford F-250 short bed you would need to start with the B and W Turnoverball hitch part # BWGNRK1116-5W. Since you have a short bed truck you'll need a slider fifth wheel hitch to allow you turning clearance, Companion # BWRVK3400. The Reese Goose boxes are great but around sharp corners you'd have interference between the cab of the truck and the nose of the trailer.

    Since you have a long bed I'd recommend using the head setting of the B and W Hitch BWRVK3500 that is in the center right above the rear axle. Then you'd want to install the rail kit part # BWGNRK1116-5W using the attached install instructions and video as a guide.
