How much can I tow with a gooseneck?
Capacity of your gooseneck hitch
The standard gooseneck ball size is 2-5/16 inches and is rated for 30,000 lbs. A gooseneck hitch system installed into the bed of your truck should be designed to match the towing capacity of your truck.
What is the advantage of gooseneck?
The most notable advantage of a gooseneck trailer over a bumper pull is its stability. Since the tongue weight of the trailer is over the truck’s rear axle instead of at the back of the frame, the potential for the trailer to sway, causing the driver to lose control is reduced.
Can you add a gooseneck hitch to a truck?
Installing a gooseneck hitch into your truck involves removing the spare tire, measuring and drilling a hole for the ball, bolting the brackets and hitch head into place and installing the operating handle. Some installations also require trimming a heat shield or fender liner.
