2015 Ford F450 Gooseneck Hitches & Hitch Accessories
Equip your pickup with a heavy-duty gooseneck hitch to tow your favorite horse trailers, livestock haulers, and flat-deck equipment trailers. These bed-mounted hitch systems are a popular option for oversized trailers as they bolster stability and maneuverability, placing the hitch ball directly over the rear axle instead of the very rear of your pickup.
Gooseneck Hitches come in several different styles; however, the most popular is a pickup’s OEM puck system, which includes a hitch that mounts below the bed and countersunk holes on your bed floor for the hitch ball, and simple bolt-in systems that mount above the bed, sandwiching the bed floor between the frame supports and hitch.
Differences Between Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Hitches
Gooseneck and 5th wheel hitch systems are commonly mistaken for one another; however, aside from their location in the bed, the two couldn’t be any more different!
Gooseneck hitches are used for agricultural and commercial purposes due to their simplicity and high weight ratings (up to 30,000 pounds). They feature a conventional hitch ball mounted in the bed that connects to a pole-shaped coupler descending from the trailer’s tongue. While this setup may look complicated, its operation is nearly identical to a conventional trailer hitch. And when the hitch ball is removed, you’re left with nearly complete bed access!
5th wheel hitches, on the other hand, are typically reserved for large RVs. Unlike conventional and gooseneck hitches, they don’t employ a ball and coupler system. Instead, they utilize a wheel-shaped plate to secure the trailer, similar to a semi-truck. Unlike gooseneck hitches, 5th-wheel hitches remain in the bed, taking up loads of valuable cargo space.
Popular Gooseneck Hitch Brands
Several manufacturers produce quality gooseneck hitches; however, some of the most popular include:
Though all hitches offer essentially the same functionality, some brands include unique features, like the B&W Turnover Hitch and its single 4-inch hole in the bed, and the Curt OEM Style Hitch and its corrosion-resistant A-Coat finish.
Gooseneck Hitch Accessories
We also offer several Gooseneck Hitch Accessories, including adapters, extenders, and more!
Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Adapter: The adapters convert the gooseneck hitch in your pickup’s bed to conventional 5th wheel rails, allowing you to mount a 5th wheel hitch without complex or lengthy installations.
Hitch Extenders: Hitch extenders help to space the trailer away from your pickup’s cab, allowing full mobility without contact; traditionally used on short-bed pickups with minimal clearance.
Hitch Rail Kits: These mounting rails allow you to prepare your pickup’s bed to accept a gooseneck hitch.
Hitch Plates: Hitch plates connect to hitch rails, converting the rail system to an in-bed gooseneck to haul commercial and agricultural trailers.
Kingpin: Converts your gooseneck hitch to an in-bed kingpin to haul inverted 5th wheels.
Eyelet: These hitches are used primarily on old oil field trailers with a tube instead of a gooseneck ball coupler; ideal for clevis hook-ups.
Coupler: Replaces your gooseneck trailer’s factory coupler with a locking, adjustable, or shock-absorbing coupler.
