If you have to tow something very large, sometimes a conventional hitch just won't do the job. If that is the case, then you will want to look at outfitting your vehicle with a Gooseneck Trail Hitch. A Gooseneck Trail Hitch will sit in your truck's bed and connect directly to what you are towing. The Gooseneck Trail Hitch uses a trailer ball mount that is very similar to the mounting point on a receiver hitch. There are under bed and over bed versions available. Generally, Gooseneck Trail Hitches are able to handle up to 30,000 pounds.
What Are The Advantages Of Using A Gooseneck Trail Hitch?
The biggest advantage of using a Gooseneck Trailer Is the stability it offers. Because the Gooseneck Trail Hitch is positioned in the bed over the axle and not at the rear of the frame, the potential for the trailer to sway is greatly reduced. Also, a Gooseneck Trailer can carry a much larger load, some as high as 30,000 pounds. Another advantage of using a Gooseneck Trail Hitch is that you can add one to your vehicle with a folding or removable ball, this way you can still use the bed of your truck for regular cargo and not have the hitch in the way.
