I was looking for a way to shift my 5 th Wheel gooseneck hitch back b/c it was hitting my toolbox. Because I had a Ford with the factory installed hitch this was the only option. R Trailer walked me through what I needed and it worked great!


Delivery was prompt. Curt brand is quality!! Installed today with minimal effort. Can’t wait to try it out.





Hardest part was removing the fifth wheel hitch from the cross bracket due to it being so heavy. The gooseneck adapter was a breeze to install and works flawlessly.


2012 Ford F-250 - Fast shipping and easy to follow directions we’re included. Bed rails and side plates lined up perfectly. My bed has the line x bed liner so I added 1/8” for setting the first rail. I highly recommend using a step bit to drill your holes for the rails. No drilling was required on the frame. This was completed by myself in about 4 hours with no lift. Definitely could be completed faster with another hand or lift. Measure several times and drill once and everything will line up great.


Great hitch. Followed directions and excellent install videos from your website. First time installing one and had no issues. Fast shipping also.


Great product at a great price. Needed a gooseneck for occasional hauling but didn't want to lose my 5th wheel rails and this fit the bill. Had to loosen the bolts on one rail to get it to sit in place but was a 10 min fix. Had about 10k behind me so far through various terrains and it has done nothing other than what it is intended for. Can't say enough about customer service either, any question i had they had helpful advice and were nothing but nice. Would reccomend this product and ETrailer to anyone in need.

I am still loving it. Use it very often with our horse trailer and stock trailer. Has been every where and done every thing i have asked of it with no issues. Still happy with the purchase and glad i went with this product.


Works well. Defiantly better than installing a gooseneck under the bed hitch. You can swap the plate over to a fifth wheel plate with ease. 2 birds one stone. Defiantly recommend



Works great still


Works better than expected with a short bed truck, the gooseneck trailer I have is not adjustable and is mainly for flatbed use only but with this hitch and rail setup I’m not concerned about rubbing on the bed sides or tailgate, I also have more than enough clearance for tight Maneuvers.


I had thought the gooseneck coupler was painted. The items seem to be good quality and really fast delivery. I was hoping I wouldn't have to go paint the item.


It was a perfect fit and we were amazed how it was such an easy install and removal process. It's actually easier than our older trucks flip over ball gooseneck hitch.


This plate has been towing heavy for over 100k miles!!! Not one issue. Good product.



This plate has been outstanding! No issues and towing heavy all the time. I’m now at 206k miles and no issues.


I ordered the Curt gooseneck hitch plate from ETRAILER because I needed the hitch for a trailer I purchased.
I received the hitch in record time packaged nicely and in perfect condition.
The hitch mounted into my truck flawlessly !!!


Since being installed on my truck I have been able to rely on the hitch with zero problems, every time. Plenty of ease trading it out for my fifth wheel hitch and back again. Thank you for such a great product!!


dropped right into my existing 5th wheel brackets,,,pinned right up,,,


Wow! I ordered this Sunday night watching a football game. Showed up Tuesday mid-afternoon! Super fast shipping! Took it out of the box and found it to be very sturdy. It dropped right in my existing rails without any problems. EXACTLY what I was after and what I thought it would be. I can now switch easily between towing a camper and a horse trailer. First experience with etrailer, and would highly recommend them to family, friends and you!


Received the Curt bent plate gooseneck hitch in less than a week and it fit right in the existing fifth wheel rails. Really like this hitch and with it I am going to be able to salvage a trailer that hasn't been on the road since 1994 that would have ended up as scrap metal otherwise! Thank you etrailer for the prompt and reliable service.


A cost effective product that is built just as well as the more expensive ones. Plan to use mainly to tow horse trailer. Appreciate the quick delivery.


The trailer hitch was definitely packaged well, and it fit perfectly in the rails without any adjustments.


Received faster than expected or predicted in a very, very sturdy box. Heavy duty metal, great welding and fits perfectly in the standard fifth wheel bed rails. We will be using it for moving a trailer when the primary truck is busy. Thanks for a great product at a great price!


Works Perfect! My only complaint, but not really is the safety chain holes are to close to the bed. Chain hooks bind up and are hard to take off. I added clevis too mine for ease of chain hook up. Other than that, excellent.


When finding the right part we used the text service as well as called in discussed the option to fit our existing 5th wheel hitch. It was challenging to find the information on the web site to match our hitch which required the texting and the phone call.


Super fast shipping and dropped right into my 5th rails. Didn’t even have to pull the 5th wheel hitch to install it. Took about 5 minutes. Heavy packaging ensued the hitch was in excellent shape.
I haven’t drilled the one bolt they recommend but will do it, should be simple and easy to get to.
Couldn’t be easier. Highly recommend!


This hitch plate is extremely handy, just drop in in for gooseneck trailering, pull it out and replace with fifth wheel hitch when pulling my travel trailer. Well made, no concerns about durability.


Super sales and service! Wish all companies were like this!


Would not have went with this hitch originally, but my truck came with fifth wheel rails, so it was a cheap alternative. I am very pleased with how simple it is, and it works great. Also like that the ball is offset. Recently switched to an enclosed trailer to haul my pulling tractor, and this offset allowed me to flip the plate around to get the ball/trailer further away from the cab of my short bed truck. Well worth the money if you’ve got fifth wheel rails.
