I have a B&W turnover hitch on my 05 Tundra and I wouldn't trade it for any hitch that takes up bed space. No drilling holes in the frame it uses the existing frame holes the only down side is the 4" hole I drilled in the bed! The ball flips over and is flush with the bed when not in use.
I don't see Taco's listed on the web page but you could contact them and ask if they have a model that would work.

That's very clever. Obviously it allows a Scamp to clear the sides? Did it take anything special to do that? This site has good pictures. Raz

B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch
The previous owner raised the Scamp 3" with square tube steel. I got the idea from him he had a Dodge pickup with the turnover hitch. The only downside is I need to figure out how to get stairs mounted to reach the door!

Hi all,

Sorry now I understand, here are a couple of photos of my hitch. And the 3" axle raised. Again I purchased the Scamp with this set up so I assumed it was a standard Scamp hitch. I looked at the Scamp bed hitch but I did not like giving up the bed of the truck so I opted for the B&W turnover. It has a much higher load rating and it is bolted between the truck frame so its bullet proof.

This would be my next addition to the hitch. I bet this would really make the ride nicer. My Tundra has a soft tail and I bounce pretty good on the bad California roads.
