B and W Gooseneck - Below the Bed - BWGNRK1313 Review


Michael: Hi, I'm Michael with etrailer.com, and today we're going to be taking a look at the BMW Turnoverball under-bed gooseneck trailer hitch with custom installation kit. This is going to be a heavy duty under-bed hitch that lets you tow your gooseneck trailer, but then when you're not towing, it's also going to give you a complete bed access. So you're not going to have to worry about limited usability of your truck bed because you're not going to have a permanently mounted gooseneck ball sitting in the middle there.It's going to work with your 2003 through 2013 Dodge Ram pickup 2500 with a six and a half or eight foot bed, excluding the 2006 through 2009, six and a half foot bed with mega cab. It's also going to work with your 2003 through 2012 Dodge Ram pickup 3500 with a six and a half or the eight foot bed. Again, excluding the 2006 to 2009, six and a half foot bed with the mega cab. It's also going to work with your 2010 through 2013, six and a half and eight foot bed Ram 2500 and your 2010 through 2012 Ram 3500 with the six and a half or eight foot bed.The main features of this hitch is that it's going to allow you to tow your gooseneck.

If that's the main thing that you want, it's going to work for you, but it's also going to have this removable ball so that when you want to tow, you can slide it in. You're going to have your latch here, that's going to latch it in place so it's not going to come out. You're going to have a nice, solid connection for your gooseneck. When you're not using it, you can flip it over, and it gives you a convenient place to store your hitch. Put your latch through, and it's secured.Now, all that you see here, minus your tow straps, are going to be underneath your bed.

So you're really not going to see anything when it's installed on your truck. We just have this set up to show you what the whole kit comes with. The pin that is securing our ball into place is a five-eighths inch thick spring-loaded steel locking pin, and the handle to control that is going to be located right under your rear driver's side wheel well. So you don't have to reach up into the bed to unhook it. You'll be able to reach it from underneath the wheel well.The square ball base is going to prevent our ball from turning while it's hooked up.

It's going to make it a lot more secure, and our safety chain loops here, they are spring-loaded. So when we're not hooked up to something, it's going to keep those nice and flush with our bed. Our hitch is going to be a steel construction with a powder coat to help resist any rust and corrosion, and it is made here in the USA.Our ball size is two and five-sixteenths inches, and our gross towing weight is going to be 30,000 pounds. Our vertical load limit on our hitch is 7,500 pounds. One of the nice things about this kit is that it is custom for your Ram pickups and your Dodge pickups.

So it's not going to require any welding. You're not going to have to drill any holes into your frame. You will have to drill a four inch diameter hole for your ball to slide in and a couple of holes for your safety chain loops.All the hardware that you need is included in this kit, as well as some pool wires here to help get some of your bolts into tight to reach spaces. There is a limited warranty for this kit offered by BMW, just to give you a little extra peace of mind. And that's going to wrap up our look at the BMW Turnoverball under-bed gooseneck trailer hitch with custom installation kit..
