Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Have limited clearance between where the gooseneck hitch mounts and your exhaust or rear differential
  • Use your truck to haul more than just a gooseneck and want to be able to store the ball out of the way
  • Want to make sure no one can just take the hitch ball out of your truck

No, if you:

  • Are bothered by having to cut out a much larger hole than the typical underbed gooseneck hitch to accommodate the folding ball
  • Like the overall look of your truck and would rather have something a little less intrusive
  • Have a very large trailer where you need a higher GTW than 25,000 lbs

Review from a similar Fold Down Gooseneck Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


Solid built! Ball moves much better than I expected. Install takes some focus and the right tools but overall the manufactures guides and support provided from etrailer covered everything.

This unit sits back over the axle much better than the hidden hitch style does. Yes, you can see it but if you have any concern about your trailer getting into your cab this unit gives you some critical inches. Wouldn't hesitate to purchase another in the future.

Both Cathy and George were awesome to deal with and the product is just what I need. Can't wait to use etrailer.com again. Hitch and brackets are very well made and heavy construction.

Review from a similar Fold Down Gooseneck Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


Realized I would not find time to install this product in a timely manner. Passed it on to my mechanic, he got it installed in a couple hours. Worked great on our first two trips, anticipate no problems. Great service from Dana, she answered all of my questions, was efficient and a pleasure with which to talk. I received my order quicker than I anticipated, delivered in excellent shape.

Great! Have several trips in no problems.

Review from a similar Fold Down Gooseneck Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


Bought this drawtite gooseneck hitch for my 2007 Dodge 2500 to pull and 8000lb horse trailer. Love it! It's simple design, easy to install, and "no profile" when folded down not in use. Caution if this is your first install - be VERY careful taking measurements to cut the hole in bed, you only get one chance to get it right. Totally recommend. Great price.


Comments
Fantastic! No regrets. No issues. Oh wish the instructions for cutting out the home in the bed were better. Performance of the hitch is flawless though.

Review from a similar Fold Down Gooseneck Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


Good price, fast shipping, was really easy to put in, had to use my cherry picker to lift the backend off of the suspension to make it easier but it wasn't bad. Only thing that worries me is the 2 pieces that mount to the side of the frame only have 2 bolts per side, I drilled 2 more holes in the frame and added 2 more bolts to each side. There is 5 holes on the kit per side, but only 2 holes on my frame. Maybe thats enough but I added some to be safe.

Review from a similar Fold Down Gooseneck Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


Product shipped fast and was even delivered a day early. Quality is excellent. Ordering was easy. I ordered both the gooseneck hitch and rail kit. Price on this site was $160 less than everywhere else. The description said that a template came included for where to cut out the bed, which it did, but there was no indicator on exactly where to set the teplate from the front or rear of bed. Which makes it complicated. but all in all I am pleased with my product and service.

Very pleased with the transaction. Item came within days. Great customer service follow up. Been pricing gooseneck hitches and installation for months. Found etrailer to be the best price and product selection for my 95 Chevy 2500. Installed hitch in 3 hours. Very straightforward install...

Review from a similar Fold Down Gooseneck Hitch in Gooseneck Hitch


I am impressed with the service that I received. The hitch and installation brackets arrived within 4 days of when I ordered them. The quality of the hitch and materials is exactly as depicted on the website. After reading the installation instructions, installing the hitch should be a fairly simple project. The only problem I see is that I will have to drill one hole on each side frame but since I haven't installed it yet I don't know how easy it will be. I will follow up once I have it installed

No issues with it's intended use. Works great. Installation a little tricky and directions somewhat lacking in the detail department. Took considerably longer than I anticipated. Once in, works great.


Comments
Still very sturdy pulling horse trailer. Only issue is that it sticks a bit trying to flip ball up and down. Would definitely buy again though for a truck in the future.

  • Recommended Fold-Down Gooseneck Hitch For 1999 Ford F-250
    I do have a great option for you, however we do not currently have the Atwood model gooseneck hitch that you mentioned available for your truck. For a very similar gooseneck hitch that is confirmed to fit your 1999 Ford F-250 Short Bed, I recommend taking a look at the Draw-Tite Fold-Down Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 8339-4449. This gooseneck hitch includes custom frame brackets that will eliminate the need for drilling into the truck's frame. Its fold-down ball will allow for uninhibited...

  • Where Should a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch be Located on a Ford F-450
    Gooseneck trailer hitches tend to be a little more forward of the rear axle on a truck compared to 5th wheel hitches. But if you have the hitch placed directly over the center of the rear axle or a few inches forward then it is in the ideal location. If you can tell me the year of your Ford F-450 and if it has a regular pickup bed or a flatbed I might be able to give you a more specific location.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Solution for 2008 Ford F-450 Cab and Chassis Truck
    The Buyers Products Gooseneck Hitch Plate # 3373014981 is a multi-fit application that can be used on a cab and chassis truck. The plate would need to be bolted to your truck frame and body. Holes would be drilled through the plate, through the bed and into the frame members. At this time there are no custom fit gooseneck hitches that would fit your vehicle due to it being a cab and chassis.

  • Recommended Air Bags for 2001 Ford F-250 with Draw-Tite Gooseneck Hitch
    The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2550 are what I recommend for 2001 Ford F-250. The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs will also work with an in-bed hitch so there will be no issues with a gooseneck hitch such as the Fold-Down Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # 8339-4449. The feature no-drill installation so you won't have to make any modifications to the vehicle.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitches with In-Bed Release for 2015 Ford F-350 Short Bed
    For your 2015 Ford F-350 short bed we can offer gooseneck hitch options whether or not you have the factory rail kit in the truck bed. If you do NOT have the rail kit you can use the Draw-Tite # 8339-4449 which has an in-bed ball release. If you have the factory rail kit instead use Reese # RP30137. For a wiring harness you can use # 20110 which is a simple plug-in installation.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch for 1999 Ford F-250 with AirLift Air Bags Already Installed
    There are a variety of air bag systems that are compatible with in-bed hitches, with the AirLift # AL57390 being the most versatile and compatible with any in-bed system; with that said, not all of them are compatible so what you can use depends on what AirLift system you've got installed on your 1999 F-250. The gooseneck hitch that provides the most flexibility and seems the least likely to interfere with an in-bed gooseneck system is the Draw-Tite # 8339-4449. This gooseneck hitch sits...

  • Will the Hi-Rise # 9480 Mount to a Draw-Tite # 8339 Gooseneck Hitch on a 2008 Ford F-350
    Since you have the Fold-Down Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 8339-4449 there actually isn't a way for the Hi-Rise # 9480 to secure to the gooseneck hitch since it sits down in the coupler section of the gooseneck hitch. To use the Hi-Rise you will need to swap out the top part of your gooseneck hitch with part # 9460 which allows you to remove the hitch ball. If you went this route then you also need replacement mounting hardware # 58320 since the hardware is only meant to be torqued once. We...
