Curt Gooseneck Hitch - Above the Bed Hitch and Installation Kit - C61341-52 Review


Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this Curt Overbed Folding Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the installation kit. Has a 30,000 pound weight capacity. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 1999 to 2010 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500, 2500 and 3500 trucks.

And because it fits so many different models, I do recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this will work for your application. How this gooseneck trailer hitch is perfect for your heavy duty towing needs. It is a fold down ball design, so it allows for nice uninhibited use for your truck bed. Basically all you have to do to fold it down is pull on this T handle to release the pin right there, and then pull up on this door right here, pivot the ball down, and once you get it down, it'll drop and hang into place. And then you just fold this door back down.

And now you have full truck bed use.Has a nice, easy to grab T handle right here that lets you just raise or lower the ball, even if you're wearing thick work gloves. And then now if you're going to tow with it, just pull the ball back up, pull this T handle. You can see the pin. And that'll allow the door to go all the way down and then release the pin and it holds it down just like that. Position the ball upright, fold that door down and it secures the ball in place.

Has a nice stainless steel safety pin and a pivot spring in the ball, to help prevent binding. And it is a steel hitch ball it's sturdy and durable. You could say it has a nice chrome finish to it.Now the custom installation kit, which are the rails right here on the side mounting brackets, it is designed specifically for your vehicle. It is a bolt-on installation. There's no welding required.

And also you'll notice by the gooseneck ball it has the two U-bolt safety chain loops that are both built in. These parts have a nice carbide black powder coat finish on them, to resist corrosion. Giving the specs on this, the gross towing weight capacity is 30,000 pounds. Vertical load limit is 7,500 pounds, and the ball diameter is your standard gooseneck ball size 2 5/16". I did lay out everything it comes with. All the hardware you need, all the brackets, nice set of detailed instructions on how everything goes together and how it operates. But that should do it for the review on this Curt Overbed Folding Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the installation kit and a 30,000 pound weight capacity.
