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

Yes, if you:

  • Have a hard time reaching into the wheel well to release the handle for the hitch ball and would rather secure it from the truck bed
  • Like the look of the OEM puck system and want to add one to your truck that will work with various Reese accessories
  • Have a 5th wheel trailer in addition to a gooseneck and want to be able to haul either with the same truck

No, if you:

  • Lose track of stuff in your truck and would prefer the hitch ball to store in the gooseneck hitch
  • Have a hard time trusting the hitch ball without a solid pin holding it in place
  • Are intimidated by a lengthy, complicated install

Pop-In Ball

Designed especially for your newer Ford Super Duty, this under-bed gooseneck hitch provides superior towing capability along with a variety of unique features. The included Pop-In ball uses an integrated, easy-to-access lever to activate the ball-bearing locking system, securing the ball in the hitch. Quickly remove the ball using the same lever and get absolute, uninhibited use of your truck bed. Because this hitch installs in Reese's Elite Series under-bed rails, all that you will be left with upon removal of the ball and safety chain loops are the ball hole and the small Power Puck cavities in your truck-bed floor - no rails, no bolts. And the included rails also fit Reese Elite Series and Signature Series fifth-wheel hitches (sold separately) for ultimate towing versatility.

I installed this by myself and it was pretty easy. Everything lined up perfect. I had to drill all the holes in the bed and the instructions were great. No holes i didn't need. I have this on my 2015 F250 and we uses it weekly to haul a roll-off trailer to various locations sometimes daily. It is easy to remove the ball and it came with a nice back to keep it in. It has been in service for about a year. No complaints on this item. Great product. Wish I would have taken pictures.


Comments
Still working great. I wish I would have put this in my F450 also. Having the ability to switch from GN to 5th is a real plus.

Will try to keep this as real as it gets out there.
2015 F250 XLT Crew Cab 8' Bed

Ordered the Reese Elite Gooseneck and Barger 90 degree wiring harness.

Received the gooseneck hitch and harness quickly. Free shipping got here in two days. Item came in two boxes. The rails were poorly packaged. Box was basically open and beat to hell, leaving markings on the rails' paint. Didn't bother me, but might others. The pucks were loose in the box and were lucky they did not fall out.

The second box with the ball, ball mount, harness and misc. hardware was packed so well it took about 5 minutes to take off all the staples and then each product was individually boxed inside. Wish they would treat the rail box with the same care.

Instructions are ok. Used the online install video instead. The video is slightly simplified as getting the nuts on the bolts is a slight challenge for a one man install. I was able to do the entire installation by myself with the exception of the four rail-to-frame bolts. Getting these snugged up to the point of being able to torque took two people simply because the nuts are hidden on the backside of the rail...particularly the driver-side front...which is slightly behind the gas tank, but still accessible.

My F250 is factory lifted 4-5" so I did not have to remove the rear wheels, nor did I have to remove the spare tire or heat shield. Lower trucks will need the rear wheels pulled.

Installing the ball mounting plate took some doing. Got one bolt on then decided to actually install the ball into the plate from above pulling the plate tight below. I used vice grips to basically keep the plate mounted tight rather than trying to lift it from underneath with one had and bolt it with the other.

For me the most time consuming part of the project was getting the darned bed bolts off to lift the right side. Broke the T50 bit they supplied and then two others. Finally gave up and ground off two of the remaining bolts...and ordered replacements. Tip for those doing this on their own, you may want to spray the bolts from under with PB Blaster the day before you intend to install. I forgot and the issue was likely that the bolts were rusted.

The wiring harness was a breeze, although I wish a shorter version was available. (Perhaps I missed it). Had to loop/zip tie about 2-3' under the bed. Connecting between the factory connectors did require me to pull the mounting plate. Was a bit tight to just slip the new connector in. Also, working the harness thru the hole in the bed side was a bit tight. Install probably took 10 minutes after getting the holes drilled.

Total install time for this slightly skilled guy was about 3-1/2 hours...after the bed bolts fiasco.

Oh...and did it all with a cast on the left arm. Ha!

Now to see how she tows!

Package was delivered with tears in bottom corners, inside the hardware bag was torn open and much of the hardware was loose in box. Inventory revealed 2 parts were missing. Called etrailer customer service and in a few minutes the rep had them on the way to me. Great service! Thank you!



by:

Both Curtis hitch system and plug adapter worked exactly as advertised. Very satisfied with both products and service from sales department. Keep up the good work.



by:

The system was easy to install and works great. It leaves for a nice, clean, working area inside the box when the hitch unit isn't in service. Great service by e-trailer as well!



by:

Bed bolts were the biggest pain in the butt...although, the assembly thereafter was a breeze! I'll never need to replace this hitch...ever again! Highest quality of materials used, with superior finishes...even though, no one sees it!

Worked out slick. Put Never Seizure on the shaft and bearings that hold ball in place. Should be good to go.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


I ordered the Elite Series Gooseneck hitch for my Ford F-350 with factory in-bed hitch mounts. The hitch is well made and is a breeze to install and remove. The handy storage bag makes it nice to store under my rear seat. I am totally satisfied with this product and recommend it.


Comments
The Gooseneck hitch has worked out perfectly. The handy storage bag has kept it in “as new” condition.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


I recently purchased a 2016 Ram 3500 with 5th wheel tow package already present on truck. I wanted an additional goose neck product and looked at various suppliers online and found etrailer products offered for sale. After to speaking with Heather who answered all my questions as well as reviewed feedback from customers I chose to go with the Reese gooseneck kit. I received the product within the shipping date provided to me and I went out to install it. It took me all of 3 mins to install with no issues. I did my best to remove, shake and couldn't get them to budge. It took me a total of 5 mins to remove the parts and storing them back under the rear seat. The parts fit perfect, look great as well as we're the cheapest price I could find. Their online video is all the install instructions you need! I will definitely use etrailer in the future. Thanks Heather!

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


Purchased for a 2006 Silverado Crew Cab Duramax. Previous owner left the underbed portion of the assembly. The actual ball mount is very easy to install with detailed instructions. Plastic trim on top is sort of cheap with unreliable double sided tape from the manufacturer, which I will have to replace. I would not recommend for lifted trucks as the ball sits approx 6 inches higher than a hideaway turnover type, unless you have that much room to adjust your gooseneck trailer. Other than that, I am pleased.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


Plastic cover will not stay attached. Locking arms are too flimsy not beefy enough. The locking arm pins are bush league not nearly substantial enough. The ball and frame components are top notch. The aforementioned parts should be of same quality. Overall the product is a bit disappointing.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


Perfect equipment. Quick install and removal so I can use my truck to haul flat material without a fixed hitch getting in the way.

I’ve been towing a 7 ton dump trailer or pulling a 28” flat bed w a 5 ton skid steer for a year now flawlessly.

Highly recommended equipment and company at etrailer

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


Product took less than a minute to install on my 2015 Ram 3500. Would highly recommend this product for those who have the factory 5th wheel and gooseneck prep package from Ram in their truck.

As described, fast shipping and easy to install. Excellent customer service (thanks William B.). Like other reviews indicated the cover is a joke but I knew this going in.

Great hitch to convert your Reece elite puck system to a gooseneck. Plastic cover is pointless and doesn’t stay down, but it’s not needed anyway.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


eTrailer was great and I will continue to use them for future purchases. However, I am very disappointed with this gooseneck ball kit. The safety chain hook attachments are pure garbage. They are extremely loose and I can easily rattle it and make them pop off. I would not trust them to hold a load if in that situation where they are needed. The ball itself seems to be a good fit. I would recommend going with another brand. I am keeping the kit only because I need it, but I’m going to order different chain attachments.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


Very fast ship! I realized I lived near the warehouse and called the morning after I placed the order to see if I could pick it up. It shipped on the 11pm pickup about an hour after I placed the order the previous night! So I received it later that day, saved me a trip, and the hitch was installed less than 24 hours after I ordered. EXCELLENT customer service! Thank you.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


This hitch works great. I think the plastic beauty cover could have been made out of sheet metal, I just removed it and put it in storage, there is no way that plastic would survive in the bed of my truck without getting broken. I like the fact that the ball is replaceable with a clip on the bottom holding it in place, but the ball does not fit in the hole quite as tight as I would like, I suppose with the down pressure of a trailer on it there is probably no movement. All in all I like towing with this gooseneck hitch better than a fifth wheel hitch, no noises and such. I have been pulling a trailer that I haul tractors on and it has performed very well for that. The weight of trailer and load has been up to 14,000 lbs. This hitch has been the solution for my trailer hauling problem, having a fifth wheel hitch but needing to haul a gooseneck trailer. Love the puck system of installing the fifth wheel and gooseneck hitches.


Comments
The gooseneck hitch has continued to work well for me. It is still the best solution for me to convert from 5th wheel to gooseneck hitch.

Review from a similar Elite Series Gooseneck in Gooseneck Hitch


Wanted to leave a message about all my experiences with etrailer. I purchased a new Ford F-350 Super Duty in August and wanted a lot of aftermarket items for it. I accidentally found etrailer on the internet while searching. They have everything I was looking for. Their pricing was very competitive with free shipping on a lot of items. The last item purchased was a Reese gooseneck ball and safety chain hookup. It’s a great item, very easy to install and shipped the next day. I’m very pleased with etrailer.

Works Perfect still looks brand new. I use the gooseneck a lot.
