In 1991, B & W patented their innovative gooseneck hitch that solved an issue many were having; how to remove the ball out of the bed when not towing. The B & W answer is to cut a 4 inch hole in the bed which accommodates the Turnover hitch ball, while the mounting system is bolted to the frame beneath the bed. This design is completed with a handle attached toa 5/8” locking pin that goes through the ball. When you do not need to use the hitch, the handle allows you to retract the pin and stow the ball upside-down, in the same receiver used while in action. This design was a great improvement to the welded-in ball and fold down plate solution.
B & W hitches are manufactured using high quality steel with a powder coated finish to ensure maximum durability. The gooseneck hitches are also designed specifically for your , ensuring ease of installation and a perfect fit. We do this so that you will make the least amount of modifications to your vehicles frame as possible, which could void your manufacturer’s warranty in many other installations.
The Turnoverball has been professionally tested and is rated to 30,000 lbs Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) and 7,500 lbs Vertical Tongue Weight (VTW). Customers have been hauling their precious cargo with the Turnover Ball for over fifteen years, and it has an impeccable safety record. It's easy to see why; B & W is committed to quality!

AS far as I'm concerned this is the only way to go if your towing a fifth wheel. The instructions were in English and very easy to follow the installtion went without a problem. Now that I've removed it everyone is asking me where it is? I told them it's in the barn. They said where's the rail holes. I told them it's magic.

Well made piece of kit, instructions were easy to follow, install was a little difficult accessing all the bolts, but can be done with basic tools and a few beers and a couple of hours of time. Installed in my 2012 GMC 3500 and immediately used to haul loaded down 42' enclosed trailer across country 3 times.
