Available Underbed Gooseneck Hitch with Custom Installation Kit for 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie Short Bed


Do you have a complete Hide a Goose gooseneck hitch with underbody installation kit with all bolts and hardware to install in a 2012 Dodge Laramie 1500 crew cab, bed measures 57inch from cab to end of bed, if so what are part #s and prices


Expert Reply:

I have a solution for you, but there is not a custom installation kit available for the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 9465 that is compatible with a 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie Crew Cab, so you will need to go another route.

The only available underbed gooseneck hitch with a custom installation kit for your 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie is the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1309. The B&W Turnoverball will allow you full bed access by simply turning over the ball and storing it in the gooseneck hitch when not in use, and this kit installs without any drilling required. B&W is known for the quality and durability of their products, evident by their lifetime warranty, so you're getting a high quality hitch that will last the life of your truck.

Since you've got the short bed truck, you're most likely going to need some type of extension when towing to help provide you with a little extra clearance from the cab of your truck when turning. You can use the B&W 4" Offset Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Dodge Ram 1500 # BWGNXA4685 which will provide you with an additional 4" of clearance from the cab of the truck. If you find that you need more than that, the B&W Extend-A-Goose Coupler - 2-5/16" Ball - 10" Offset # BWTEXA4200 connects to your trailer's gooseneck coupler and provides you with 10" of additional clearance.

If you don't already have a 7 way connector in the truck bed, I recommend adding the Curt # C56000 since it will give you the added convenience of not having to stretch a connector from your trailer to the rear of your vehicle.

I've linked some review and installation videos on these products to this answer for you to have a look at, as well.
