  • How to Measure the Location of the Drill Hole for a Rail Kit on a 2005 Ford F350 8 Foot Bed
    If you are just needing the rail kit, you will need # 4449. To measure where to drill the hole if you plan on installing the Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck trailer hitch with the rail kit, # 4448, measure from rear of the bed (centered between the wheel wells) 46-3/16 inches toward the cab. Once at the 46-3/16 inch measurement, mark and drill a 1/4 inch hole. Using a hole saw, enlarge it to a 3-1/2 inch diameter. If you are wanting the gooseneck trailer hitch, hitch ball and rail kit, then go...

  • 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.

  • 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.

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...

  • Does Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Have High-Rise Ball
    The Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 6300-4449 you referenced comes with a standard height gooseneck hitch ball, the Remov-a-Ball Gooseneck Hitch Ball # 5973, and there is no high-rise ball available for this particular hitch.

  • 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 feature no-drill installation so you won't have to make any modifications to the vehicle.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Bracket Kit To Install Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch on 2013 Ford F250
    The correct kit needed to install the # 9460 Draw-Tite Hide-a-Goose Gooseneck Hitch on your 2013 Ford F250 short bed is part # 4449. This is the install bracket and hardware minus the hitch. If you don't have one already, you can install a 7-way trailer connector in the bed of your truck using part # 50-97-410. I've linked to installation videos for the hitch and the trailer wiring harness.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 1996 Ford F-450
    If your Ford F-450 has an actual bed and is not a cab and chassis model (with a service bed or flatbed) then you can use the Curt universal folding gooseneck ball rail kit # C61502. You could then use Curt hitch # C-52 or # C65500. A custom hitch for a 1996 Ford F-450 is not available. If you do have a cab and chassis model then you can still use # C65500 but it will require some custom fabrication by having a qualified professional first weld a 1/2 inch steel plate to the frame.

  • Recommendation for Towing Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Trailer with 2001 Ford F-250
    I do have a solution for you, however the Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 6300 referenced in your question is designed to install using a vehicle-specific gooseneck rail kit. It cannot be mounted to standard 5th wheel base rails. If you are just needing a gooseneck trailer hitch, the custom kit for your 2001 Ford F-250/350 is the Draw-Tite # 6300-4449, which will include both the gooseneck hitch and installation rails. If you are wanting both a 5th-Wheel hitch with rails and a...

  • Recommended Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Conversion Setup for 2005 F-250 With 6-3/4 Foot Bed
    For your 2005 F-250 with the Draw-Tite Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Hitch, # 6300-4449, you can add an adapter for a 5th wheel connection but there are limited options. The best option that will work with your gooseneck hitch is the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter w/ Offset - 12" to 16" Tall # CAB-C5GX1216. This will make your king pin compatible with a gooseneck hitch ball. The only issue is some manufacturers won't allow this adapter without voiding a warranty, so...

  • 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...
