I would make my own since all they are is a simple 2-5/16 ball and a heavy piece of iron to hold it. My 1980 Chev has a goose neck hitch and it is a ball welded to a 6 inch piece of channel iron that is welded to the bed which is a flat bed by the way. I also have a 5th wheel hitch on it and a ball hitch and a pindle hitch for it

I towed a wrecked F-350 flatbed several years ago that had a cattle trailer on a ball in the middle of the bed. A pickup ran a stop sign in front of him and the bed crushed the back of the cab in the crash. The u-bolts didn't hold the bed in place and the driver was nearly killed in the seat by the steering wheel and the crushed in back wall of the cab. I would never install a ball only to the bed. My.02.

You better go back and read what I said since I did not say to put a simple ball in the bed of any thing.

Only thought I'd add, if you haven't thought of it already, is to make sure that the ball is ahead of the rear axle a bit.
