Recommended Gooseneck Hitch for a 2018 Ram 1500 with a 6'4" Bed


I am just going to pick up a new 18 ram I need to put a goose neck ball in it for the horse trailer. What ball do I want to use and how much weight can I pull?

I recommend going with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1309 for your 2018 Ram 1500. This is a great gooseneck hitch that is made in the USA and has received numerous positive reviews from our customers. It has a weight capacity of 30,000 lbs but you will be limited by the weight rating of your pickup.

One of the best features of this gooseneck hitch is that B&W made the Companion # BWRVK3400 sliding 5th wheel hitch that fits directly into the receiver. This is unique because most other gooseneck hitches require an adapter plate or bracket if you ever need to tow a 5th wheel trailer.

There is actually a bit more information needed than just the axle ratio when it comes to determining the weight rating. You can find your exact rating from Ram directly or by looking in your owner's manual.

I have attached some review videos for you to check out as well.
