B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch

B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch

Not only does this kit provide you with a sturdy, custom base for installing your Companion fifth-wheel trailer hitch in the bed of your truck, but it also doubles as one of the most recognizable gooseneck hitches on the market. This fifth wheel installation kit actually is the Turnoverball gooseneck hitch from B&W.


Gooseneck Specs:

  • Gross towing weight: 30,000 lbs
  • Vertical load limit: 7,500 lbs
  • Ball size: 2-5/16"

B&W Companion Installed in Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch

With the B&W Turnoverball underbed gooseneck trailer hitch you get the best of both worlds. When you go to tow a gooseneck trailer, the Turnoverball creates a sturdy, dependable connection with your trailer. And when you're done towing, you can stow the ball upside down in the hitch to get full bed access and a clean appearance. When you're ready to tow your fifth wheel trailer, just install the Companion in the ball hole in place of the gooseneck ball and lock the post in place using the built-in handle. You can remove the fifth wheel when you're done towing, leaving your truck bed open once again.


Simple, Custom Installation

This kit is custom designed for your vehicle. The mounting brackets bolt to existing holes in your truck's frame. While some modification is required - you will need to cut a 4" diameter hole in your bed for the hitch ball and drill holes for the built-in safety chain loops - there is no need to weld onto or to drill into your frame.


Once you have the brackets and center section installed, set up the operating handle. This handle is designed to be accessed from the rear driver's-side wheel well. On the end of the handle is the heavy-duty steel pin that secures the mounting post of the Companion (or the base of the gooseneck hitch ball).

well worth the money. this hitch is the best that money can buy, best ratings, best safety, best performance hands down. I now have two ways to tow, gooseneck and traditional 5th wheel receiver, and a third if you count the class III rear receiver hitch under the rear bumper. all bases have been covered for me.

This was a perfect bolt on for my 04 F350 6.0 CCLB I have duals on mine and I had to unbolt the exhaust the whole way up to the transmission crossmember so I had room to drill etc over the driver side tailpipe

2003 Ford F-250 Super Duty

I had a short box 2003 F250 with a Hidden Hitch. I wanted to purchase a B&W Companion Sliding Hitch to accommodate the clearance issue between the front of our first 5th wheel camper which was a Palamino Puma 5th wheel and the cab of the truck. The truck had come with a Hidden Hitch goose ball system which I had never used. The salesperson at etrailer informed me that the B&W Companion Slider Hitch would not work with the Hidded Hitch Gooseball set up. I was disappointed to hear this, but I really had no other options. After removing the old Hidden Hitch system and installing the new B&W Gooseball hitch I could not believe how much heavier and substantial this hitch was! I then received and installed the new B&W Companion Slider Hitch. This sliding hitch was the only real option for me and after looking around at other brands of 5th wheel hitches, I know that B&W hitches Made in the USA with their Lifetime Warranty are simply the Best!

2007 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Excellent products. Both hitches (goose and 5th) came as described and were built very well! B&W does not skimp on materials. At first, thinking about how the companion secures to the gooseneck I was skeptical about the strength of the to two working in tandem. Both work flawlessly, are easy to use and the companion comes apart to reduce weight when putting in and out of truck. Timely shipping from e trailer. Best price I could find. Easy install.




by:

Excellent hitch. Use it with the companion 5th wheel hitch for a rock solid platform. Install was easy, fit finish was great. Awesome American made product.

2006 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Ordered on a Thursday and received it the following Tuesday so the shipping is fast. The instructions are short and to the point with only 2 or 3 pictures so you have to use your head to install it. Very easy installation.

The install is pretty easy if you have a friend to help. I'm a very mechanically inclined guy and it still took a couple of hours to get this part of the install done but my end result is perfect.

  • Difference Between B and W Turnoverball Part Numbers # BWGNRK1108 and BWGNRK1108-5W
    The two part numbers are actually the same rail kit/gooseneck hitch. Since they appear in the fitguide for both the gooseneck and fifth wheel hitches though we gave them slightly different part numbers to make it easier for us to organize. For your 2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty the Turnoverball rail kit part # BWGNRK1108 or # BWGNRK1108-5W is the correct kit and would work well for you.

    The difference in the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit part # BWGNRK1108 and part # BWGNRK1111 is what vehicles they fit. Part # BWGNRK1108 is designed for the 1999-2010 Ford F-250, F-350 and F-450's and part # BWGNRK1111 is designed for the 2011-2016 Ford F-250, F-350 and F-450's without the OEM Prep Package. Both are designed with the same center section and can be paired with the B&W companion Fifth Wheel with part # BWGNRK1108-5W and part...

  • Is There a Difference Between B&W Gooseneck Hitches BWGNRK1108-5W and BWGNRK1108
    There is no difference between those two part numbers on your end. If you ordered either part number you'd get the same B and W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch part # BWGNRK1108. We have two part numbers though as this hitch shows up in the gooseneck and fifth wheel fitguides since Companion hitches like the part # BWRVK3400 fit it directly. The two part numbers allow us to organize them in our system and fitguides easier.

  • Can BandW Underbed 5th Wheel Install Kit # BWGNRK1108-5W Fit 2010 F-350 Dually with OEM Bedliner
    If your F-350 OEM bed liner is the drop-in type, then it will have to be trimmed to allow for any 5th wheel installation. Your tonneau cover should pose no issue, however. Spray-on bed liners are compatible with 5th wheel installations but the drop-in type has to be trimmed for installing the BandW Companion hitch # BWRVK3400-5W. Metal-to-metal contact is necessary for safe installation of a 5th wheel. This is covered in the written instructions from BandW, which are attached. This hitch...

  • Can B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3400-5W Install in F-350 with Bed Liner Installed
    If your 2005 Ford F-350 has a sprayed-on bed liner then you're all set to install your B&W Companion. If it has a drop-in plastic liner then the liner will have to be trimmed out to allow the hitch base's "feet" to reach down to the actual truck bed itself. You may also need to trim around the gooseneck ball. The B&W Companion is among the most versatile hitch systems available and I have linked for you an installation video showing its use in a 2004 F-350.

  • Is B&W Companion Compatible With Other Gooseneck Hitches?
    The B&W Companion mounts in the B&W Turnoverball that doubles as a gooseneck hitch and will not mount on other goosenecks. B&W is a very high-quality hitch and you are right to prefer them but the only way to install a Companion is to remove your current gooseneck and put in the Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion # BWGNRK1108-5W and add the Companion Slider # BWRVK3400-5W.

    I have a solution for you, but unfortunately there is not an aftermarket combination Gooseneck hitch and puck system mounting kit available for your 2000 Ford F-350. Additionally, without knowing which air bag system you have installed, it's tough to confirm what will be compatible.

  • Recommendations for Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Hitch on 1999 Ford F-350 Short Bed
    The best option to tow both a gooseneck and 5th-wheel trailer with your 1999 Ford F-350 with 6-3/4 foot bed is to use the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3400-5W along with the underbed installation kit # BWGNRK1108-5W. This is a great sliding 5th-wheel hitch that will give you an additional 12 inches of clearance for making sharp turns with your truck's shorter bed.

  • Difference Between B&W BWGNRK1108 and BWGNRK1108-5W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch

    Yes, you can put both a 5th wheel hitch and gooseneck hitch in your 1999 Ford Super Duty. If you have a short bed you will need gooseneck hitch and installation kit # BWGNRK1108-5W. Then you can use the B and W companion hitch # BWRVK3400-5W. If you have a long bed you can use the same gooseneck hitch and install kit # BWGNRK1108-5W but the companion 5th wheel hitch you would need is # BWRVK3500-5W.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Rails in 2008 Ford F-350
    The B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck # BWGNRK1108-5W also serves as the underbed rails for the B&W Companion and does not fit other fifth wheel hitches. Don't let the lack of options dissuade you though because this is the fifth wheel hitch I would recommend for you even if you did not already have the base rails because the Companion is considered by many to be the highest-quality fifth wheel hitch available and height should not be an issue because it can adjust from between 16-1/4" to 18-1/4"....

    To start, a puck system/underbed mounting kit is just as safe as the above bed rail systems that are used for 5th wheels and goosenecks. Both the above bed and underbed types of systems are mounted to the frame of the vehicle, they're just done in different manners-both are equally safe, but the difference is mostly down to price. There are a lot of different systems you can use to give yourself a clean truck bed on your new truck. I'll use the 2010 Ford F-350 with an 8-ft bed as an example...
