I recently purchased a new truck and now I need a new hitch.
Previously I had a flatbed with a gooseneck ball so I used an adapter.
I used to also own a gooseneck flatbed trailer so it made sense.
Now I only own a 5th wheel so this time around I want a normal 5th wheel hitch.
Heres the problem. New truck also has a flatbed.
The current gooseneck is a joke, I think its a B&W but it is welded in upside down...lol Currently with the ball installed the pin that locks in the ball is carrying all of the pin weight and I just dont feel safe using it. You also have to climb under and install the ball from the bottom...ugh... Some shops shouldnt be able to own a welder...
I dont mind the idea of rails bolted to the bed but I need a hitch that is shorter than one made for normal bed.
Any ideas ???
So far the only think I came up with is to just buy a hitch and modify it.... Id prefer to just find something made for a flatbed. I just havent come across anything yet...
