We had a 2016 PJ quick tilt and it seemed to be a pretty darn good trailer but we outgrew it quickly. My only complaints with PJ is they powdercoat the entire trailer and it seems like their wiring retention/clipping isn't exactly good. The reason I do not like powdercoat is it is much harder for me to sand and repaint the chipped area. Living in the rust belt any paint chip turns into rust extremely quickly.


Our 2019 Texas Pride has impressed me in terms of build quality but also has its faults. It is EXTREMELY heavy for a 27ft gooseneck. It has a 17ft tilting portion. We grossed 23,880lb to Denver and back from WI without a single issue. That was an 02 LB7 CCSB with a box full of tools/fluids/4 people averaging ~225-250lb a person, towing my trailer, and my ECSB LLY on the trailer with 1000lb of plate weights and packed full of luggage.

I have a 16' PJ Low Pro gooseneck and it is a great trailer. Hauled a lot of gravel when working on my long driveway and loved how it handled under load.

My PJ trailer will arrive next month so now I need a hitch. There are many options when it comes to gooseneck trailer hitches. What do you guys have? I heard that B&W turnover ball is a good solution. Does anyone have one?

I currently have 3 trucks with B&W turn over balls and have installed a couple more. I like them better than other options for the price. Maybe guys that do more fifth wheel stuff primarily will have another opinion. If you’re installing them on a 16+ duramax, they are super easy to install compared to older models.

I love my B & W hitch when not in use just flip it over and have a flat bed floor again

2x on the B&W. Have one in mine. Only used it a few times but good and solid. It was already installed when I purchased the truck. Had to tighten all the bolts as they where loose or not torqued all the way. Been fine since.

Have to grease the ball before turning it upside down so it comes out next time as I get dirt and grit in it and sometimes gets stuck. Tapping it with a hammer helps.

Besides this it is a great hitch
