Gooseneck B&W Hitches
Gooseneck hitches are very similar to 5th wheel hitches in many ways. First of all, they mount in a similar location which is over or just forward of the rear axle. Gooseneck hitches are also designed for pickup trucks only.
One thing that is very nice about Gooseneck hitches is that they are less intrusive than 5th wheel hitches. Gooseneck hitches are designed so that you can have full use of your bed while you are not towing something. These hitches are generally rated for around 30,000 Ibs; however, every truck has different weight capabilities so it is wise to double check. Typically, these hitches are used for towing livestock trailers, car haulers, large flatbeds, or other commercial and industrial trailers. Gooseneck hitches are a very useful hitch to have.
