Video Transcript for B and W Hitch Ball - Gooseneck Hitch Ball - BWGNXA4685 Review

Today we're going to review part number BWGNXA4685. This is the B&W 4 inch offset ball for the B&W turnover ball gooseneck trailer hitch, part number BWGNRK1309. This offset ball will move the pivot point of your trailer 4 inches rearward to provide additional cab clearance. This does work exclusively with the B&W turnover ball gooseneck hitch part number BWGNRK1309. The square ball base will prevent the ball from turning in the hitch during hookup, is made of a sturdy steel construction and is made in the USA. The ball size on this is 2 and 5/16ths in diameter and again, the offset from the center of the square base to the center of the ball is 4 inches. Just to give you an idea here, put a ruler on it.

That'll give you your 4 inches. The weight capacity on this offset ball is 20,000 pounds, has a vertical low limit or pin weight capacity of 5,000 pounds. Basically what I want to do here is I also pulled the hitch that it fits on, that BWGNRK1309, and I have it right here on the table. I just want to show you how it does install. This is the gooseneck hitch designed for the Dodge Rams. It has the in bed latch handle that opens and closes to a pin to get into the ball.

If we pull this ball out, you can take this offset ball, drop it right into the square opening, and as you can see it would move the ball's location from here 4 inches rearward to the rear of your vehicle to provide additional cab clearance. Then you just turn the handle and it would lock the pin and lock this into place and then you're ready to go. That should do it for the review on part number BWGNXA4685. This is the B&W 4 inch offset ball for the B&W turnover ball gooseneck hitch, part number BWGNRK1309. .

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (174 Customer Reviews)

Designed for use with B&W's Turnoverball gooseneck hitch (BWGNRK1309) for your Dodge Ram 1500 or Ram 1500 truck, this ball extender moves the pivot point of your trailer 4" rearward to provide additional cab clearance.

Although I haven’t had the gooseneck hitch or the extender installed on my truck yet, I just want to respond to the customer service I received. I spoke with two different ladies over two days and they help me figure out which hitch I needed for my truck and were extremely helpful. I was told I would receive the hitch in about a week but it showed up two days later. I’m very happy with the company and would definitely use them again



by:

Excellent well made American product.Fast shipping and good communication.



by:

Just received this item only to find that IT DOESN'T FIT. The hole center on this item is 1 3/4" from bottom of plate and the pin on my B&W hitch is 2" below the top of the hitch (so it's off by 1/4"). I have a Dodge Ram 3500 dually and this is specifically for a Dodge. HOWEVER, apparently a different model # B&W hitch was installed by the previous owner on my particular truck. SO, I need to return this and get the one for a different model hitch (offset ball #BWGNXA4085). This means the offset ball will be sitting about 3/4" above the bed of the truck which doesn't thrill me, so I will probably put a support piece under that part even though I'm sure they will say I don't need it.
MEMO TO ETRAILER: You should mention prominently in your description that YOUR specific Dodge Ram may have a different hitch and to measure carefully before ordering.



by:

Was delivered on the date that was given! Great product.



by:

Excellent service and very knowledgeable about their products. Quick delivery. Product is VERY heavy duty weighing nearly 20 pounds. Trailer is in the shop but will add to the review once I have a chance to hook up trailer and see if this adds the clearance between the nose of the trailer and cab of the truck that I need because of having a short bed.



by:

Simple to install, solid attachment with zero rattle. Love it! Bought a different anti rattle with a lock built into it, fairly expensive, don't like it at all.



by:

I bought this to extend the ball close to the axle on my 13 Ram mega cab. I have the B&W hitch installed. It is built really well. Only problem I had was that the shank on the extender do sent fit far enough down in receiver for the pin to latch and had to return it. Just writing the review incase someone else has had this problem.



by:

Pulled a Featherlite 4 horse slant load trailer with a sleeping berth 3 times to Arizona from Illinois this year with a 6' 4" box and had no problem with turning radius because of this ball. Works well!



by:

Don’t go anywhere else unless you want a headache!



by:

Fit right into the hitch to replace original ball.



by:

Works as advertised. No complaints.



by:

Great product easy to install on the Dodge Ram. Just plug everything in.

Review from a similar Offset Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


this offset ball has helped towing my fifth wheel, keeping it away from the truck cab when turning or backing tight. I would highly recommend this.


Comments
Has been extremely great

A year has passed, and I rely and enjoy using this product, I never tow without it. For those campers that doubt their tight turns and backing maneuvers, this product will put you at ease.

Review from a similar Offset Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


This product is exactly what I needed to offset our new “Reese Goose-box” pin box to better accommodate the clearance for the fuel tank and tool box in the bed of our truck. Thanks to the knowledge of the “etrailer” staff (specifically Stacy) she went the extra mile, taking additional time to assure all the products I needed were perfect for my application. Thank you Stacy for all your assistance and patience with my order.
P.S. I added the yellow strip down the center of the pin box to help guide me when hooking up. Perhaps “Reese” will add this little idea to their future pin boxes as an option?

Used with Ram 2500 short bed . Great product, works perfect. The offset allows cab and tool box clearance while pulling our 5th wheel camper. I have used etrailer with other purchases . They have always delivered on time and have provided good customer service. Thanks etrailer

Review from a similar Offset Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


I haven’t used it yet, I am concerned about it being about 3/4” off the bed. I am thinking about pupping a spacer between it and the bed. Worried about it bending


Comments
Thanks for your review. This gap is normal since it fits a few different vehicles. It is safe and should not bend. You can put a washer there for peace of mind, but as long as you do not go over the weight capacity, it is not necessary.

Review from a similar Offset Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Have an older 5th wheel style camper with a hitch adaptor, that coupled with newer style pickup boxes caused the camper to be to close to the box. This hitch helped a fair bit. It set the camper 1" higher off the box and 4" back to give more space between the bumper and camper which helps when hooking up.

Review from a similar Offset Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


High Quality, Heavy duty 4” offset ball mount that works perfectly with the B&W turnover gooseneck hitch system. Adapted my 30’’ fifth wheel trailer with the Ranch regular gooseneck adapter—now no more heavy lifting and lots more room in the truck bed.

Review from a similar Offset Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Fast shipping... The B&W 4in extension hitch ball is really good. I have used it a couple of times works great wish I had gotten one sooner. Problem I had was in a newer 2500hd the gooseneck was to close to toolbox and really close to rear window. With this extender ball problem is solved...

Review from a similar Offset Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Quality construction, fits perfectly. I needed as much clearance as possible after installing a sleeper cab on my Ram 3500. I utilized this as well as the B&W extenda-goose coupler which collectively made sharp turns easier.

Very happy with the quality of this part and look forward to using it on my Tundra to pull our Camper. Shipped quickly and am overall impressed with the experience I've had with E-Trailer.
