hidden goose neck hitch

i'm buying a 10 k goseneck trailer and was wondering what brand of hitch everybody uses or recomends. it will go into a chevy 2500HD. i wanted to get one where i could remove the ball when i didn't need it. is there one that is better than the other or are they all the same. thanks for any help

They are not all the same. The one you want is the B&W.

B&W is the best in my opinion, and I install them all the time. they are not that hard to install, no drilling or welding required, and the instructions are down to the T. I can have one installed in under 2 hours. the only thing you see in the bed is the tops of 2 squared ubolts in the low part of the corrugation and a 4" round hole for the reciever to come through. the reciever sets just below the top corrugation in the bed. for the most part nothing sticks up past the top ridges so you can slide something ( say a refrigerator ) in there and it wouldn't interfere. the ball is removed by pulling a lever in the driver's fenderwell and then pulling the ball out and flipping it over or storing it somewhere else. the price them is about 450-500. any other questions let me know.

I got a B&W off of a vender on Ebay last year for around $250. Easy install. The hardest part was drilling the 4" hole in the bed, hoping I measured right. I had the bed Line-X'ed afterwards. Sealed everything up and looks real clean.

Like mine too. Just pull the ball, flip it upside down, and drop it back in the hole for storage. It's a neat dealio.

Where?
I called around to everyone in Ft Collins and Maxey was one of the worst. Ended up at Rihno Lining of Larimer Cnty, cant remember what the breakdown was but it was a grand out the door for the B&W installed and Rihno lining over the bed rails of the 8ft bed and a 7way plug installed.
I think the B&W was around $460 installed!!!
