Gooseneck hitch question
Just bought a new trailer and b&w turnover ball. Trailer is a 36x8.5 enclosed goose with a 2ft V nose. The hitch on the trailer is right on the front edge on the trailer. I thought with the V nose I would be good to go with my short bed, but its gets close quick. I just picked up the B&W ball that moves it back 4". Have not checked to see how much of a difference it makes yet.
I feel like the hitch on the truck is too far forward. I believe it is about 6" forward of the axle. Has anyone modified the B&W hitch to be slide back some? It sits right on the flat part of the frame and there is room to move it back.
I remember seeing a extension for the trailer before, but I am not sure if they put too much stress on the trailer? Its an all aluminum trailer, but will only be around 14k fully loaded.
