Choosing Between Gooseneck Hitches and Bumper Pull Trailers

Making a choice between gooseneck hitches and bumper pull trailers is a huge decision that will ultimately affect your driving experience later on. To be honest, both options have their own advantages and disadvantages, but sometimes the differences between these two aren’t so obvious.

Gooseneck hitches are more often found on vehicles owned by experienced trailer drivers. Beginners are more likely to use a bumper pull because it is less expensive and far more convenient to use. The weight of a bumper pull trailer typically doesn’t exceed 10,000 lbs, and it follows the normal turning radius of the towing vehicle, both features of which the beginner driver will greatly appreciate.

However, more experienced trailer drivers will prefer using gooseneck hitches, as mentioned above. This is due to the fact that a trailer equipped with a gooseneck hitch can carry heavier and bigger loads. Trailers with gooseneck hitches are far more stable, even when loaded with heavier cargo. This stability allows for the use of trailers that have more room, whether for cargo or for living quarters.

What’s more, a gooseneck hitch will have a tighter turning radius than a bumper pull hitch, which allows drivers to maneuver tight spaces and turn into corners easier. Even so, these trailering techniques are better done by veteran drivers who are more skilled and practiced; all the more reason why bumper pulls are preferred by novice trailer owners.

A gooseneck hitch is commonly mistaken for a fifth wheel, particularly because both equipment designs are quite similar to each other in terms of their purpose and function. However, the major difference here is that a fifth wheel hitch will have a king pin on the trailer, which will be used to engage with the receiver or funnel. A gooseneck hitch, on the other hand, will have a ball that attaches to a coupler.

The most common types of gooseneck hitches will be under bed, fold down, and above bed. Gooseneck hitches installed above bed are typically mounted on the same rails as a fifth wheel hitch. This allows the hitch to be easily removed or installed as required. Under bed gooseneck hitches are usually custom-made to fit your vehicle. These hitches will have the rails underneath the bed of the pickup truck.

The fold down version of the gooseneck hitch will also have rails under the bed, but the difference is the hitch ball is already mounted on the bed and can be folded down or up as necessary.

Gooseneck Quick Flip Ball – This hitch is rated for 30,000 lbs. which means you can safely attach it to almost all RVs, trailers, or pickup trucks without worrying if the hitch is too heavy. This attaches underneath the bed and can be operated by one person.

Hide-A-Goose Complete Kit Ford – A gooseneck hitch system designed for Ford vehicles. There are several rail kits available that are custom-fit for your vehicle, whatever type you prefer.

OEM Ball and safety Chain Loops – Equipped with a latch handle that allows you to operate the hitch without touching a dirty ball. Highly-practical safety chain hooks as well, making this one of the better options for your OEM package.
