I was able to get one. But they told me it had to be sent to the dealer. We own a few tire stores who have used them in the past so I just had it shipped there. It is shipping this week.

But at this point I’m not even really sure why I’m doing it. If you are going by the book, there really isn’t enough cargo capacity to take advantage of a gooseneck. It sure does tow a lot better though.

Well - it is either a flat bed when you need it or rails, which are less expensive but you never quite have a flat bed.

Glad to hear you were able to get one, too.

I already have a gooseneck two-place horse trailer, which with two horses, is around 5K. I agree that they tow better, and I like that the tongue weight is applied right over the center of the axle, not hanging out back off the receiver mount.

Seriously, 'had a brief on-line chat with B&W: They said indeed the engineering and fitment is done (by the end of March, as previously reported), but production and documentation (those cool pdf-instructions) won't likely be ready for shipping until the "End of April." AND, their 2021 unit will fit the Hybrid, too!
...just sayin'

Mine is installed, but I haven’t tried it yet. Anyone else put theirs to use yet?

Mine is getting installed tomorrow. So, Adam, your installation was trouble-free?

Test pull today was perfect, no issues. This truck pulls as good or better than my previous one, which was a Super Duty.
Taking horses for a ride this afternoon.
