Recommended Gooseneck Hitch for 2014 Ram 1500 w/ 5-1/2 Foot Bed and Air Suspension


I have a 2014 Ram 1500 with the 57foot bed and factory air suspension and am looking for any options I have for towing a gooseneck trailer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

According to the nice folks at B&W hitches, their # BWGNRK1309 Turnover Ball gooseneck hitch is compatible with your truck. It is compatible with trucks equipped with the air suspension, but you'll need to re-route one of the air lines as discussed in part 5 on the instructions.

If you find you need additional clearance between the trailer and the rear bumper of the truck, or between the front of the trailer and the rear of the truck cab, B&W offers a gooseneck ball wit a 4 inch offset, part # BWGNXA4685.

If you don't already have the trailer connector installed in your truck bed, you can install one using part # 41157.

I've linked you to some product description videos for the hitch and the offset gooseneck ball, as well as an install video for the wiring I recommended.
