Why Choose Gooseneck Trailers

A gooseneck trailer gets its name from its long, arched hitch which resembles the neck of a goose. The unique coupler is designed to clear a closed pickup tailgate without any issues and it connects to a ball inside the bed for a frame-mounted hitch that's positioned over the rear axle. This unique placement allows for a more even distribution of stress across your truck's frame and fewer points of failure.

Many pickup beds come preinstalled with gooseneck hitches. However, if your truck doesn't have one, there's no need to worry. You can get one installed safely at any time by qualified mechanics. Once installed, the hitch ball can be flipped upwards when ready for use.

Gooseneck Vs Bumper Pull

The main difference between a gooseneck trailer and a bumper pull trailer is the location of the hitch.

Contrary to the gooseneck’s location within the truck bed, a bumper pull hitch is located at the bottom rear of the vehicle’s frame. The hitch mount and ball are connected to a square-shaped receiver tube beneath the bumper. This means that bumper pull trailers aren’t limited to pickup trucks only, and can be hauled by virtually any car with a bumper pull hitch.

Nonetheless, ensure that you confirm your vehicle’s GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) before whacking on a trailer and towing.

Benefits of a Gooseneck

Gooseneck trailers offer numerous benefits and this makes it a popular choice for commercial purposes such as hot-shot vehicle towing, agriculture, livestock transportation, etc. Let's take a quick look at some of the advantages of a gooseneck trailer.

Enhanced Stability

Because the tongue weight of the trailer is over the truck’s rear axle and not at the back as is the case with bumper pull trailers, the possibility of the trailer swaying causing the driver to lose control is highly reduced. This results in better stability compared to its counterparts. The even distribution of the weight means that even when you’re driving on windy backroads, you’ll still have increased driver control. It also makes it easier to regain control when you need to swerve, as any lateral pressure will be transferred to the ground through your truck’s tires.

Handle A Heavier Load

Gooseneck trailers can be much longer, wider, and heavier than most bumper pull units which allows them to carry more weight, upward of 30,000 pounds, without compromising the trailer’s stability.

This is made possible by the strategic weight distribution concentrated on the rear axle rather than the bumper. Therefore, gooseneck trailers are often the go-to trailers for transporting livestock and horses and are even a popular choice in the diesel drag racing scene. In most cases, gooseneck trailers are capable of hauling two full-sized pickups on a 40-foot deck comfortably. That is quite an impressive performance.

Easier Handling While Driving

Another big advantage that gooseneck trailers have over their counterparts is that they have better handling and maneuverability. You can better weave through tight spaces better with a gooseneck trailer.

However, you need to keep in mind that the maneuverability comes with a tight turn radius. You'll need to take some time to adjust to this with practice and learn how to weave around corners safely and efficiently. You don't want to damage other cars on the road or take off your trailer's fender when hauling loads. Therefore, this requirement for specialized practice is the only possible disadvantage of gooseneck trailers.
