With the B&W Turnoverball underbed gooseneck trailer hitch you get the best of both worlds. When you go to tow, the Turnoverball creates a sturdy, dependable connection with your gooseneck 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.

Easy-to-Remove, Simple-to-Store Hitch Ball

The durable steel hitch ball included with the Turnoverball system secures in the hitch with a sturdy, 5/8" thick steel pin that is incorporated into the end of the operating handle. To lock the ball in place, drop it into the hitch hole in the bed of your truck. Then rotate the handle in your driver's-side wheel well counterclockwise until the latch engages. When the latch is engaged, the spring-loaded pin on the end of the handle will be inserted all the way through the base of the hitch ball, forming a strong, solid connection and ensuring absolute security when you're towing.

B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch Operation

When you're done towing, remove the hitch ball by simply pulling the handle out as far as it will go and then rotating it clockwise until it unlatches. Remove the ball, flip it upside down, and drop it back into the ball hole of the hitch. Then reengage the latch to secure the stowed ball in place.

Unlike typical gooseneck balls - which have round bases - the Turnoverball hitch ball is designed with a square base. This makes latching the ball in the hitch easier because the base won't rotate inside of the hitch like a round base might, so lining the pin up is a snap. The base of the ball also fits tightly within the ball hole during storage. Because only the corners of the base contact the sides of the socket, any dirt or grime that gets into the hitch will fall through the socket, thus helping to prevent any buildup that could cause the ball to seize up in the hitch.

Simple, Custom Installation

This hitch is custom designed for your vehicle. The included 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 hitch brackets and body 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 hitch ball.

B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch Accessories

B&W makes it easy to tow just about anything. With the many adapters and accessories available, the Turnoverball can be made to work with almost any gooseneck trailer. Hitch balls are available that have a built-in rise, an offset, and even a different connection type. Add on the Companion fifth-wheel hitch - which attaches directly to the Turnoverball with no other parts required - and you can tow your fifth-wheel trailer. Even a truck bed utility rack is available so that you can easily haul ladders and lumber with the load placed on the hitch (and therefore your truck's frame) instead of your bed rails.

1997 ford f250
Works great, except the
turnover part, the ball hits the sway bar. Install was not as easy as stated but that's probably because the kit was more of a universal fit for my truck and I had to do a lot of drilling.

I still have no complaints about the work ethics of this setup.
James - 02/13/2022


I have purchased several B&W products over the time and the quality and durability of B&W is why I will always purchase their products. All my pickups have had B&W turn over hitches and campaign fifthwheels. Great products.


Good quality hitch a little pricey but made in usa so what would you expect


Fit perfect and works like a charm.


4th conversion on same truck regarding fifth wheel hitch - this is cats meow - love the flush bed floor w/ball inverted and got rid of the nasty bed mounted receiver which was always in the way. Am sticking with this setup for good. Pricey item but sturdy. Its a DIY install but not for the faint hearted.

1993 Ford F-250 and F-350

I have had nothing but an outstanding experience with your company. I had ordered the incorrect item at first and had no problem exchanging it for the correct one. The only thing I think that needs to be improved is how to determine if you have helper springs, I found the info. under the Q&A tab

1996 Ford F-250 and F-350

I am very happy with the hitch that I bought from you. Ordering the product online was very easy and it was delivered when promised.

Great product at a great price plus fast free shipping.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

Great hitch! I'm a pretty avid do it yourselfer so I did the install myself and it was relatively simple. The directions that came with the hitch had all the information I needed. It works well with my trailer and the quality seems to be pretty good. It's pretty low profile while you're not using it as well. Overall very happy with it. A couple of install notes for squarebody Chevy, GMC trucks which is what I installed mine on: You will need to lift the bed off the frame just enough to slide the hitch between the bed floor and the top of the frame rails so if your truck is rusty like mine, you may want to have new bed mount hardware on hand before you start in case you have to cut the old bolts to get them out. Also, the safety chain loops land right on the ridges in the bed floor so they don't recess completely flush even when they're not in use but so far it hasn't been a problem for me. I saw that mentioned in some other reviews on here so I already knew before I bought the hitch.


Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

This was my first order I placed with et etrailer. If one work could say it I guess it would perfect! I ordered on a Tuesday arrived on Thursday. I Placed the order got conformation and a name and contact to call if I had any issues, once it arrived I got another email letting me know if had been delivered. The installation video was perfect made it’s easy to install just followed the steps. When I need any trailer related items I will use them. As far as the B&W hitch i put it in a 2017 Ram 2500 with Ram boxes. The fit and quality of the hitch and design is what I have come to expect from B&W. I got this hitch to pull a gooseneck horse trailer. If your wondering if it will work with Ram Boxes it will.

Great product still love it works great with my Ram Boxes. No issues ever

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

Installed hitch looks it came that way from the factory.

Difficulty level 4 out of 5 for a DIY'er working alone. The front-to-back measurement in the bed is critical for drilling the 4" hole. The measured distance given in the instructions leaves little room for error in the forward direction. Better to measure a little short, than a little long!

As advertised, there was no drilling required in the frame rails, but I did have to remove the frame alignment tabs on both sides of the bed; Sawzall or cutoff wheel required.

In the end; it was a full day's project, but well worth the effort!


Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

The high quality is apparent with this hitch. It is made well and thoroughly thought out for easiest possible install. The value is very high!

However the instructions were incorrect for the distance to drill the hole in the bed. It said 45 1/2” from end of bed. But It should have been 45 7/8” - 46”. Caused a slight issue for our install. I had to ream out the hole on the cab side to get it to fit. Which left a large 1/4” gap on the side closest to the rear of the bed. Most of these new truck have a circle area cast in them where the hidden hitch hole should go. I recommend centering your drill bit in that and drilling instead of using the measurements in the instructions. I considered doing that, but depended on the instructions instead. Bad choice! Not pleased with that! Further, the instructions don’t give torque specs.

I have contacted one of our installers and have confirmed that when it comes to the measurements, they recommend following the measurements that are on the installation instructions. The factory dimple is not always centered, so its better to measure according to the instruction manual. As for the torquing specifications, on page 4 of the instructions it states that once the hitch is tight, torque 0.625 inch hardware to 150 ft. lbs. and all 0.5 inch hardware to 110 ft. lbs.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

Great product and design. Install is a hand full. I did it solo in about 5 hours, hard hours! Only issue is the exhaust touchs the gooseneck frame even with the recommended spacers on the exhaust bracket. I installed on a 1995 Ford F-250 2 wheel drive single cab with diesel. I will look for a longer rubber exhaust hanger, that would remedy it. Highly recommend B&W. I've had several over the years.


Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

Great Customer Service!!! Great Product!!! Love the Installation Videos!! Very helpful!!


Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

Received in terrible condition. One box was completely open at all borders and finish on hitch was chipped in multiple places. Product was shown as in stock when order was placed but wasn't shipped until the day AFTER it was supposed to be delivered. Two calls to etrailer told me it would be shipped prior to that date but obviously just trying to smooth over the situation. Installation was completed per instructions and watching etrailer [online] videos without issue. Only difficulty is torquing the bolts to final specs in tight spaces.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

Fits like a factory installed option. Works great. I installed the gooseneck on my 2018 Ram 1500 crew cab 4x4 and installed airbag overload bags. I pull a Tri axle 16 ft dump trailer


Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

If you are installing this hitch on a RAM without the OEM hitch just follow the instructions. Everything is spelled out nicely.

My first conversion from the Ram puck system to the B&W was made in order to use their offset ball. It was on a 2018 RAM 2500 and was pretty straight forward using the four factory mounting bolts rather than those supplied with the hitch. That way I didn't have to remove the truck bed.

I just finished a second conversion on a 2019 RAM single wheel 3500. It was more complicated. I understood that this hitch was intended for a RAM without the factory hitch so I spoke to B&W to make sure the 1320 could replace my Original factory hitch. I was told it would. It did fit, however I had to drill out the holes for the four vertical mounting bolts to 3/4" so I could use the factory mounting bolts. This allowed me to install the hitch without removing the truck bed. I also had to shorten the front driver side factory bolt so it would clear the ball latch lever. I used the bolts supplied with the hitch for the four horizontal bolts because the factory bolts won't fit the B&W hitch. With the above modifications everything functions as it should.

I hope this helps anyone wanting to install the B&W on a RAM with the factory puck system.

With the mods mentioned in my first review. The hitch works just like the one I installed in my 2018 Ram 2500 and I am pleased with the results. However, it was more complicated to install.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

Installation was straight forward and it's well built. Works smoothly. etrailer was awesome as usual with shipping and service.
However.... ;) on the BWGNRK1400 for '73-'87 GM trucks, the predrilled holes in the hitch for the safety chain u-bolts are 6-1/4" each way from center of the ball. This places the matching holes you have to drill in the truck bed on the sloped edge of the ribs, not in the center of the valley as intended. The instructions read as if the holes are not pre-drilled but they are, so I contacted B&W and asked if I can drill new holes at 8-3/4" each way of the ball so that they center in the next valley and they said no, that will void the warranty. So I had to do some bodywork, cut, weld and grind to scallop the ribs around the anchors to they won't always be sticking up (defeating the flat floor intent of this hitch design). I saw guy on [online] noted this was an issue on his squarebody bed as well.
B&W needs to look at this dimension for future installations to help out the next guy.


Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

Everything fit well and bolted up nicely . Instructions could be a bit better but I done a mock up on the bench before installing. It’s not for the faint at heart a lot of heavy pieces to be installed overhead in tight spaces


Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

Packages were tore open, but everything was still in them, parts were kinda banged up but the powered coating help up great, went together well just wish part had marking on the, but even without was a pretty straight forward install


Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

Great product with excellent installation instructions!! Installed to pull our 36’ camper with a goosebox.


Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

Worked out … Perfect upgrade to the factory system. I hated having to remove , and place the covers in the bed. Now that the safety chains are closer to the center I can load boards and stuff that I don’t want in the trailer in the bed without having to rearrange everything. Only thing is the safety chain hoops are little thicker than the bed ribs and stick up. So it’s not totally flat..


Review from a similar Turnoverball in Gooseneck Hitch

Overall this Installation went as I anticipated, 4-5 hours; it's not for an unprepared amateur. I strongly recommend watching the Installation Video, but more importantly, disconnecting the wiring harness (from both sides, there's 3 connectors) that cross over the rear cross member above the Differential. Disconnecting the rear exhaust was a MUST DO for us (my son helped me) as is a second person. Patience was our friend during this entire Installation for both of us. The brake line that crosses over to the passenger side was of concern to me, and got in the way as well; in the end it is below this entire installation. However there is a Mount Block on the driverside that creates a problemwith getting one bolt into place; a "Fishing Spring" (spring wire that wraps around the threads with long tail to fish/thread/pull thru the hole) would have helped to get this into place. (SEE PICTURE) Once in place the head is able to be held with a narrow spanked wrench while tightening. The rear center bolt is a HUGE challenge to reach once everything is in place and you're torquing things to spec.I had to purchase a "3/4" Crowsfoot" to get this and some of the others because of things blocking access with a socket (not talked about in the video or Installation Video). Once everything is in place and Reconnecting electrical plugs we found that there was enough gap/spacebehind the Kit Rear Cross Bar, over the vehicle rear cross member, to run the driver side electrical. Pay attention to have the "male" plug facing inboard to give you enough slack to reach the passenger side plug. A couple of zip-ties were needed to keep this inplace. See picture for how I routed this and the vent tube to avoid the heatshield.

I've got a 26 foot Keystone Cougar 5th wheel RV Trailer that I be using this, along with an Andersen 3217 hitch. With this B&W Hitch I don't have the 5th wheel Rails across the bed full-time anymore of my 2022 Ram 1500DT 4x4.

  • Can Gooseneck Hitches Be Installed in a Truck with a Body Lift
    The problem with putting a gooseneck hitch in a truck with a body lift is that the gooseneck hitch mounts to the frame, and as you know a body lift will lift the body higher off of the frame. Well, a gooseneck hitch installs onto the frame and the ball height is set for vehicles without a body lift. So, if you were to install a hitch on a truck with a body lift the ball will not stick up far enough through the body for a gooseneck coupler to attach to it. With a body lift you will not...

  • Can Truck with 1 inch Body Lift Tow Gooseneck Trailer
    It's not really a great idea or easy job since the bed is going to be 1 inch taller than the hitch plate. If you can remove the body lift and maybe go with a suspension lift (or ideally no lift) you'll have the best setup. In general it's difficult to tow gooseneck or fifth wheel hitch on a lifted truck so if at all possible you're best off.

    An Air Lift air spring kit that fits your 1997 Ford F-350 would not be considered an overload spring.

  • B&W Gooseneck Hitch for a 1989 Ford F-350
    The B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRM1319 that you referenced is for a Ram 1500 so it isn't compatible with your 1989 Ford F-350. Instead you want part # BWGNRK1110 if you have the Overload Springs or part # BWGNRK1100 if you don't have the Overload Springs. Please note that neither of these will fit if you have a Cab and Chassis or your F-350 has a 34" frame. Attached are some review videos and installation instructions for you to check out.

  • Recommended Underbed Gooseneck Hitch and 5th Wheel Hitch For 1994 Ford F-250/350
    I have another option for you that has great reviews and is similar to the hitch you mentioned, but we do not currently carry Putnam products.

  • Gooseneck Hitch and Suspension Enhancement that Fit Together on 1996 Ford F-250
    Unless you'd be interested in going to a different suspension enhancement setup we won't have a solution since all of the gooseneck hitches we offer mount on the outside of the frame rails where your current air bag brackets are. The B and W kit part # BWGNRK1100 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your truck though and is a really great hitch but you'd have to go with a different suspension kit like the Timbren # TFR250SDE which will give you the same support and then will also...

  • B&W Turnover Ball Installation Kit For a 1994 Ford F-250
    Your 1994 Ford F-250 2WD 8' bed with the 7.3 diesel will need one of two installation kits depending on if it has overload springs. The B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1110 is for your truck if it has the factory overload springs. This kit will use the Installation Kit # BWGNRM1110 and Center Section # BWGNRC800. The B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1100 is for your truck if it does not have the factory overload springs. This kit will...

  • Recommended Air Bags for 1997 Ford F-250 with B&W Gooseneck Hitch In the Bed
    You can use the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers - Rear Axle # AL88298 with an in-bed hitch system like your B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1110 (with overload springs) or # BWGNRK1100 (without overload springs) since they install away from where the Gooseneck brackets do. I really like these AirLift bags since they have an internal jounce bumper that provides additional support and protection for the bags in the event of a malfunction....
