B&W's concept of "A hitch when you need it, a level bed when you don't" has been the basis for the B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch since 1988.
The patented Turnover Ball offers you the versatility you need when you need it.
We offer a Turnover Ball Hitch to fit nearly every domestic full-sized pickup on the market.
The Turnover Ball is an easily-installed, complete gooseneck hitch that bolts to the frame of your truck using existing holes.
The Turnover Ball comes with a removable 2 5/16" ball, and is rated for 30,000 lbs. towing and 7,500 lbs. tongue weight capacity. The ball stores upside down in the socket when not in use, leaving a flat, unobstructed bed floor.
To change, just pull and turn the spring-loaded latch pin in the driver's side wheel well, lift the ball out of the socket, flip it over, drop it back into the socket, and engage the latch pin. The process takes longer to read about than it does to complete.
They install in about an hour, with no welding. The hitch assembly simply bolts across the truck frame under the bed while the bed is in place -- the only modification to your truck is a four-inch round hole in the pickup bed floor and four 1/2" holes for the safety chain U-Bolts.
