Have him back under it before he buys the hitch. Just to eyeball the truck/trailer a bit. Different angles too to see what things look like when turning. Oh, and if his truck has a lift kit on it, that creates a whole nother box of problems to deal with.Thanks guys. I think he might be in business. The stock trailer has a very rounded front end so he is probably good to go.
Their turn over ball is a fantastic product.. and the set up went in my truck easy.. Installed at home on the floor... Nothing but good things to say about it.. :thThumbsU I also bought the compainion fifthwheel hitch.. another fantastic piece.. spendy but ohhh so worth it...I have a B & W in my F350 shortbed w/ a toolbox. My Truck Like Cat said, depends on the type of gooseneck the trailer has. Now one of those livestock/horse trailers or a RV type, I would have to remove the toolbox due to somewhat sharp turns I think. B & W's have a removable ball (like a reciever hitch).
They have offset mounts that place the ball around 3-5" further back in the bed. One of these thingamagigs
