Review of B and W Trailer Coupler BWTEXA4200


Today we're going to review part number BWTEXA4200. This is B&W Extend A Goose Gooseneck Coupler with a 10 inch offset and a 24,000 pound weight capacity. This is a sturdy inner tube which is designed to pair with your existing outer tube on your gooseneck trailer to help create a coupler for hooking your trailer up to your truck. As you can see, the 10 inch offset design will give you that extra clearance between your truck cab and your trailer and it will allow you to make tight turns even with a short bed drop 00:00:33. This is designed with a heavy wall, designed tubing and has internal gussets on the inside which will ensure strength. Has this easy to grip spring loaded handle which will ease hook up to the ball and also it is lockable. If you'll notice when I unlock it, you'll see this little hole in the handle right here and then when you go to lock it, that hole drops below here. You can actually put a padlock through here if you like, to give you extra security. Now the padlocks we do sell separately if you do want one.

So it can be locked so nobody can unlock it to try to steal something. The finish on this has a powdered coat finish which will help resist corrosion. The part is made in the USA. It is designed to fit onto a standard 2 and 5/16 diameter gooseneck ball. Some more for this one right here I have demonstration purposes. The offset measures from the center of this tube to where the center of the ball would be. So if we put a ruler on that, that's going to give you the 10 inch measurement, the 10 inch offset.

Now, the outer diameter on this tube is 4 inches. This is designed to slide up into the outer tube on your trailer already. If you'll notice, it has a range of a vertical height adjustment here of all these holes and the range from the center of the bottom hole to the center of the top hole is going to be right at 8 inches and each one of those holes is at 1 inch increments, so you can get fine too in your adjustment for the height you would need. The weight capacity on this is 24,000 pounds. A vertical low limit or tin weight capacity is 6,000 pounds and it does come with a limited 1 year warranty. Now, what I'm going to do is just to give you an idea, we're going to swing this, let me open it up.

Now it's in the open position. Here is the gooseneck ball. Basically . and again, this plate has a funnel designed to it so if the ball gets close enough, it will funnel it towards the opening .. to put into place.

Once it's locked into place, as you can see right there, then you'll just do your spring loaded handle. Spring load handle, you just push it off the little edge right here and it will lock into place, you can put a padlock through here if you like and as you can see, the ball is locked into place. What I'm going to try to give you another idea is we're going to lay this down just to show you how there's the ball, the pin from this handle goes right through this plate, locks it, so you can't release it and then when you go to release it, if you just pull up on it, move that handle over to lock into place, it will pull right out. Goes right in, lock it. Just like that and then release it, pulls right out. Very simple installation. That should do it for the review on part number BWTEXA4200, the B&W Extend A Goose Gooseneck Coupler. .
