gooseneck hide a hitch, which one?

i own a 2004 ford super duty extended cab with short box. Just bought a 24k triple axle gooseneck trailer with some buddies and no way to haul it, lol.

I already have the firestone air bags in the rear, yes I made sure when I ordered those they work with gooseneck and fifth wheels (firestone RR2550).

Both my buddies have the B&W gooseneck hide a hitch setup. I like this set up but just want to make sure there isn't something better out there.

thanks - PS if B&W is the way to go, where is a good place to pick one up at?

Just put a B&W turn over ball on mine! Nice hitch, paid $389 shipped. I think it was on amazon. Just google them and you will find one reasonable.

I have a B&W in my dually and love it. Just don't leave the turnover ball in the hitch. Moisture will create a tiny bit of surface rust which will seize the ball in there in no time.

I had a pop-up (spring-loaded) one on my old truck. It worked very well until the rust started. Every few years required some work to keep it working smoothly. On my new truck I went the other way with a rail and pin on top. 2 main reasons, it came with the bed rails already in it for the 5th wheel and the top side gooseneck is fairly simple to remove (no rust issues from below). I just keep the hitch with my trailer for lack of a place to store it. As far as the bed rails go, I always put 2x4s down when hauling a load in the back so I can get straps under and around the load to make it easier to remove it with tractor/loader and to secure it properly. Also, it is already to go if I need to use a 5th wheel hitch. Big loads go on the trailer so the truck stays pretty.
