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
Fold the ball down on this gooseneck hitch to get full use of your truck bed when you're not towing. Above-bed hitch plate sits flush with your bed for a low-profile look.

Ball Up

The Fold-Down gooseneck trailer hitch works to meet your heavy-duty towing needs while still allowing you to get full use out of your truck bed. The custom-fit rails install to preexisting mounting points beneath your vehicle. The hitch plate mounts in your truck bed, but sits flush to the surface to ensure a low-profile look.


Fold Away

Instead of having to remove the ball and find a place to store it, like so many other hitches would have you do, this hitch allows you to simply fold the ball down for storage inside of the hitch. Just use the oversize pull ring to pull up the door near the hitch ball, and then pivot the ball down into the open compartment. The door closes on top of the ball to keep it concealed and to ensure a smooth surface for your truck bed. When you're ready to tow, just open the hatch, pivot the ball into the standing position, and close the door to secure the ball in place.

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.

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.

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


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

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


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


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.

The product is awesome ! But there should be option for the 5 inch extention, instead of the ball ,which you need if you have a F150 5.5 box. now I have a ball that is useless. Would be awesome if I could return just the ball!
