Review of B and W Gooseneck BWGNRK1500


Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for flatbed trucks. It has as 30,000 power weight capacity. Now this is a heavy duty underbed hitch which will let you tow your gooseneck trailer. This part will include everything shown here on the table. A flat bed socket assembly is included, the 2 and 5/16ths diameter gooseneck ball, the latch pin handle here with the spring, the handle guide brackets that the handle will go through, a safety chain kit, and a nice set of detailed instructions on how to install everything.Now this hitch will give you complete truck bed access when you're not towing. All you have to do is remove the ball, flip it upside down, hold onto it, drop it back into place, and it'll lay flush with your truck bed.

This has a handle here with a 5/8ths inch thick spring loading locking pin on the end of the handle. It goes all the way through the ball to secure it in place. So when you install this and you drop your ball into place, the holes will line up and that pin will go all the way through just like that and lock your ball into place. And then when you pull this to open it, you can take the ball right out. Now your handle when you install it will be accessible on the rear driver's side inaudible 00:01:09.This has a single piece machine ball socket.

Provides rugged durability. The square ball base you can see here prevents the ball from returning in the hitch burying hook up. So when you drop the ball into place, you can see the inaudible 00:01:23 and spin around. You notice the corners won't open. That's the corner's only fit of the ball here that prevents any grind build up from getting in those corners and making it harder to put the ball in and out.Now B&W does also offer some specially designed accessories that will work with this hitch.

We do sell them separately on our website. Makes it easier to customize this hitch to fit your needs. One of the popular ones is they offer a B&W companion hitch, which actually is a fifth wheel hitch that has sort of a stud in the middle here that'll drop right in. It's a square post that'll drop right into this so you could actually drop a B&W fifth wheel companion hitch in there and into a fifth wheel trailer if you want also.The bag here includes the spring loaded safety chain hook ups. Now some modification is needed for installation and welding is required.

You do have to drill a four inch diameter hole into your bed to be able to access this opening and you do need to drill four and 9/16ths diameter holes for the safety chain loops to go through. This is all a nice powder coated steel. It's very sturdy and corrosion resistant. It is made in the U.S.A few specs again on this. The gross tolling weight capacity is 30,000 pounds. The vertical load limit is 7,500 pounds. We had mentioned the diameter of the gooseneck balls are standard 2 and 5/16ths diameter. And on this hitch plate, just to give you a few dimensions, width on it is right at six inches and the depth on it is right at eight inches. But that should do it for the review on the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for flatbed trucks with a 30,000 pound weight capacity.
