Review of Curt Gooseneck C60734


Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store Underbed Gooseneck Hitch with the Installation Kit, and it has a 30,000 pound weight capacity. This is a custom-fit part. It is designed to fit the 1994 to 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 trucks and the 1994 to 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 series trucks. It will work both with 6-foot and 8-foot beds. On a custom-fit part, I always like to recommend to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it will show you if this will work for your application. For this video, I've installed the mounting brackets to the Gooseneck Hitch Head, just to give you an idea of what this would look all installed, and what it's going be like underneath the bed of your truck. It does use a double-lock system which provides added security and uses two pins that go across to hold the ball in place, instead of your normal one. On the locking mechanism, underneath where the pins are, it has a zinc plating so it provides superior corrosion resistance.

As you can see, the hitch ball, it's a chrome plated hitch ball. It will easily remove when you're not towing, to give you complete truck bed access. All you have to do, here's your handle, it's locked into place. Just pull your handle out and twist it to unlock it. It will hold it in the open position.

You can pull the ball right out, flip it over, you can see there's a little handle here. Just drop it back in, release the handle, the dual pins will lock it in the stored position, so it will store upside down in your hitch for easy access. They do give you a nice rubber cover you can see here. You can put that on once it's in the stored position. That will help keep any dirt and grime from getting into that ball hole when the ball is being stowed. If you notice, it has a nice chrome ring here that surrounds the hitch ball hole to provide a nice, tight, low profile look.

It has a comfort grip handle right here on the release handle. This handle can be positioned on either side of the truck. For this installation, I put it on the driver's side, so you would access it on the driver's side wheel well. If you wanted to move it over to the passenger side wheel well, you can do that if you prefer. Safety chain hookups, you can see that we installed them. They are spring loaded, they are built in.

You just pull up, hook your safety chain in there, and it will hold it into place. Finish on this is a black powder-coated steel. It's very durable and corrosion resistant. Again, the mounting kit I've installed to the hitch head, the mounting kit comes with all the grade A hardware to install it, comes with a nice set of detailed instructions. When you do install this, you do need to cut a 4-inch hole in the bed to access this opening, and then four 1/2-inch holes for these safety chain U bolts to come through. There is no welding required when you install it. There are a couple nice accessories that Curt makes that will work with this. There's an adapter plate, it's called a 5th Wheel Towing Adapter Plate. It's a 5th wheel that's attached to a plate, that has a post on it. That post, when you take the ball out, will drop in there, and you lock it in with the dual pins and you'll have a 5th wheel in there. We do sell that separately on our website. It's part number C16210. There is one other accessory that they do sell also, that we sell separately. It's an offset hitch ball. Instead of the hitch ball being straight up and down, it is offset towards the back a little bit, so it creates additional space between the truck cab and the trailer. Again, we sell that separately. It's part number C602. A few specs on this again, the ball size, let me pull that up. We'll open it up, flip it over. The ball size on this is your standard gooseneck ball diameter of 2-5/16. Gross towing weight capacity on this is 30,000 pounds, and the vertical load limit is 7,500 pounds. Right now, we've flipped it over, we release it, the dual pins go in and locks it in place. You're ready to tow a gooseneck. When you're done and you want to store it, pull it open, twist it, that will hold it open, pull the ball out, drop it right in upside down, release the handle again, it locks it into place, put your cover on there, and then you have your full truck bed to use. That should do it for the review on the Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store Underbed Gooseneck Hitch with the Installation Kit and a 30,000 pound weight capacity.
