Turnover ball in 2017 Checy Colorado/GMC Canyon?

I'm going with the Andersen Ultimate hitch for our (April 2018) 5.0TA. This hitch can mount via either a ball (gooseneck-type) in the bed, or on rails. I'd like to go with a ball and in fact I'd like to use something like the BW turnover ball. So far, BW doesn't offer a turnover ball kit for my 2017 GMC Canyon. Anyone install it anyway or use a similar product? Thanks.

I can't help with your truck, but do love the B&W Goosneck. There is another good brand out there, my remembry just can't recollect the brand, that you could use if one is available for your truck.

Thanks. So far I think the BW turnover ball seems to be the best option. Curt offers something similar for the 2017 Colorado/Canyon which they call a folding ball: https://www.realtruck.com/curt-foldi...017Y747MA.html. There is a guy on another forum who claims to have adopted a 1990 BW turnover ball kit and I have a PM from him that I'll post when he responds.

I just purchased a Escape 5.0 and would like to tow it with a GMC Canyon with the same setup that you are mentioning; the turnover ball with the Anderson hitch. Are you planning to install it in the crew cab model?

At this point I don't think bnw offers a turnover ball for this truck. I'm still investigating alternatives.
