Which Gooseneck Hitch is Right For You?

Which Gooseneck Hitch is Right For You?

  • When buying a new truck, the dealership might present you with a lot of factory options. One of those might be their tow prep option, or tow group. We know you have a lot of things to think about when you are in that dealer’s showroom, so allow us to spell out the specifics for you to think about ahead of time.


     This Tow prep option will place a framework under the bed of your truck to prepare it for gooseneck or 5th wheel towing.  What that means to you is that they will place five holes in your truck bed, four that are puck ready in four corners for a fifth wheel and one in the center for a gooseneck. You can’t choose between a fifth wheel and a gooseneck prep package, you get all five holes. They provide plastic caps to fill these holes should you not need them.


     Over 25 years ago, B&W changed gooseneck towing by designing a hitch that allows you to turn the ball over and store it where it’s used … in the bed of the truck.  The Turnoverball has been widely embraced as the best-selling gooseneck hitch in America for many years. 


     The factory hitch mounting that goes under the bed was made by one of our competitors in China. This same competitor announced the closing of their last American factory in 2013 when they laid off over 450 workers.


    You have another hitch option! That option is to politely decline the factory prep package and call your local B&W Trailer Hitch dealer. They will outfit your truck for towing with a simple and straightforward hitch package that was designed for convenience, and a quiet, smooth ride. And did we mention it’s all made right here in Humboldt, KS?
