Video Transcript for B and W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Ball Review

Hello neighbors . It's Brad here at etrailer, and today we're taking a look at the BMW three-inch gooseneck ball. With your gooseneck, generally a 2-5/16 is going to be the standard ball that you're going to be using. But sometimes with the trailer that you need to hook up to require something a little bit larger. And as you can see, our three-inch can be that one. And it's as easy as pulling out and dropping it in and vice versa, when you need to swap from a different size.

Unlike our 2-5/16 or our three-inch, unfortunately it does not have the turnover feature as the ball is too large for the opening. But, it is still made out of the same steel construction, and it has a nice sync coding on it. So that's going to keep it protected for a long time and keeping it safe from rust and corrosion. This one has had a lot of years and miles on it, and it's still holding up. While it's a little dirty, a little bit of cleanup could bring this back to brand new.

You don't have to worry about this corroding away. So this is three-inch ball, as you can see, obviously is a larger diameter, but it's also a larger gross trailer weight at 40,000 pounds Let's say your standard 2-5/16 spalls are going to be 30,000 gross trailer weight. Now it's important to check to make sure that your fifth wheel can actually handle that weight. Most of our BMW under bed gooseneck hitch mounts do max out at 30,000 pounds gross trailer weight. Just because of the ball can't, doesn't mean THAT can't.

So you're going to want to compare those two numbers and take the lower of the two. Also available from BMW, is the two-inch hitch ball. So between your options here, you'll be able to hook up to a bunch of different applications or whatever your trailer may need. So, whether you're towing something like this camper, or if you're hauling snowmobiles or a horse or whatever your gooseneck needs are, BMW has you covered. And that was a look at the BMW three-inch gooseneck ball.

Thanks for watching..

This is the replacement as UPS lost the first order. (They're still looking for it, btw)
Thank you Customer Service for such a speedy response, and offer to replace at no additional cost to me.

Product arrived as promised and in GREAT packaging! Has the look and heft and build to it to handle and task I so deem it to perform without any concerns or reservations on my part.

Stays in the toolbox when not needed. Easily swapped out with my other standard size drop in ball.

A must have item if you tow various sized gooseneck trailers.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


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 Trailer Hitch Ball


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.


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

The hitch’s main parts are good it’s the hardware that’s very lacking. Torqued the bolts to spec and the lock washers spread wide open

It is unusual for this to happen. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


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 Trailer Hitch Ball


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.


Comments
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 Trailer Hitch Ball


This fit nicely on my 2004 Silverado 3500. Installation was very straight forward. I have not had a chance to use the hitch yet, but I don't see any reason that it won't work out excellent. Thanks

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


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.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Couldn’t find this B&W turnover anywhere locally in a reasonable time frame. My internet search brought me to etrailer and George J. Customer service was unmatched and shipping was unbelievably fast. Installing was a breeze. B&W has done an excellent job making a high quality product that’s very easy to install. Above all, thank you etrailer/ George J for your help getting me what I needed fast and with great customer service. 1 year later I’m happier than ever and will never search else where for what I need.


Comments
Perfect and everything I needed. The best part of my purchase was the first class customer service from ETRAILER. I was in Alaska and needed it fast. ETrailer understood, and got it to me in a few days! Every local place was months out to get it for me. Thank you everyone at ETrailer and Happy New Year.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


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 Trailer Hitch Ball


Hitch has give no problems and was easy to install.
The only issue is when loaded heavy taking off and stopping there is a significant “pop” when the load shifts. I assume is need of lubricant on the ball where it sits in the receiver


Comments
Oh, we do not want to be hearing popping noises while hauling heavy trailers. Yes, you can apply grease on all 4 corners of the ball. You will also need to verify that the bolts on the gooseneck are tight and torqued to spec on the frame. You can check out some of the installation instructions for the specs. If the bolts are all tight and the grease does not help, you can contact the manufacturer for further troubleshooting. I will send you their information and a copy of the instructions in an email.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


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.


Comments
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 Trailer Hitch Ball


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.

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 Trailer Hitch Ball


I put B&W turnoverball on a 2016 Ram 2500 crew cab short bed diesel,it has the factory prep puck. The change over was pretty simple. I used the same studs and nuts that came with puck goose ball. Tbe only hard part was trying to pry the 4" exhaust pipe down to slide the B&W plate into position. It took me about 2 hours to install by myself. I am going to use a 4" offset ball so I can use a reese goosebox hitch for my 5th wheel.
