Tow using a gooseneck and a 5th wheel hitch!

The ever-present conundrum… you own both a horse trailer and a 5th wheel trailer, but only one truck to tow them with. That means you need to get a gooseneck hitch for your horse trailer, or a 5th wheel hitch for towing your trailer. Right? Many people think they must choose between the two different kinds of hitches for the gooseneck and 5th wheel trailers that they own.

We’re here to tell you that you don’t have to choose between them any longer! At Torklift Central we offer many kinds of hitches, but one 5th wheel hitch manufacturer has solved this conundrum, B&W Hitches. They offer a simple solution – the Turnover Ball Gooseneck hitch and its Companion 5th Wheel hitch. Both use the same base for installation so you have the option of switching hitches and using either one.

Turnover Gooseneck Hitch
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 versatility when you need it. These hitches fit nearly every domestic full-sized pickup truck 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-inch ball, and is rated for 30,000 pounds towing and 7,500 pounds tongue weight capacity. The ball stores upside down in the socket when not in use, leaving a flat and unobstructed bed floor – or, if you want to use the 5th wheel companion, you can install it over the gooseneck hitch and tow your 5th wheel.

5th Wheel Companion Hitch
The B&W Companion hitch is designed to work with the Turnover gooseneck hitch. There are no mounting rails to ruin the look of your bed or your ability to use it when you’re not towing. There is a single-point-attachment on the bottom of the hitch that inserts into the same opening as the gooseneck hitch, making for easy insertion and removal of the Companion hitch.

The Companion hitch is rated for 20,000 pounds towing and 5,000 pounds tongue weight capacity.

Features of the B&W Companion Hitch include:

  • Fully articulating head allows front-to-back and side-to-side pivoting
  • Cam action latching handle for easy release, even when parked on unlevel sites
  • No mounting rails means using your truck for more than towing
  • Wide stance, engineered for improved stability and strength
  • 1-inch thick, wrap-around jaws fit kingpin perfectly, eliminating sloppy starts and stops
  • Polyurethane bushings provide a quiet, rattle-free towing experience
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty

This complete system, Turnover Ball with the Companion hitch, allows you to tow a 5th wheel trailer and a gooseneck trailer, and leaves your truck bed free to use for other items and storage when you aren't towing. If you are interested in learning more about this system, visit our 5th wheel hitch page or contact us using the information below.
