It is a great setup for trucks w/o the factory prep but the factory prep and B&W OEM Companion incresed the convenience factor 10X. When I had the Turnover Ball, I rarely removed the hitch, more out of laziness. It requires wrenches and specifies using a torque wrench on the cap screw and U-bolts. Now I take it out as soon as I un hitch at home. You can install / remove the OEM Companion w/o any tools in a couple minutes. I just set it on a timber below the 5th wheel.
Thanks Scotty, I eventually ordered a 2014 Ford Dually (will wind up with a mortgage now, lol) with the prep and the 25K hitch, they gave it to me at there cost which matched the Reese online price so I was happy with that. The B&W was looking like the way to go for the Ram though.

That's good news. You will be happy with your truck and the convenience of the hitch. BTW, I bought the goosneck hitch kit on Amazon for about 60% of the dealers and local outfitters price. I have already used it and it's about as slick as it gets.

I am looking forward to the coming RV season as we have been holding off with the older under specked truck. We plan on some major excursions this summer. I am not using the goose part for now just the fiver. I will be doing retired guy towing.
