Fifth-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter

This unique coupler lets you tow your fifth-wheel trailer with your gooseneck hitch. It is air ride equipped to ensure that less stress is put on your trailer's frame than is typical with traditional king pin adapters. Simply replace your trailer's existing pin box with the Goose Box and you'll be ready to go.


Eliminate Chucking and Jarring

The Goose Box is designed to absorb road shock for a smooth, stable ride. The internal air bag can be adjusted to give you just the right amount of support, so you will lose the bounce but avoid the stiff, rigid ride that occurs when towing with an overinflated air bag. Also included in the Goose Box are dual shock absorbers, which ensure that compression of the air bag occurs in a controlled fashion. This extends the life of the air bag.


Cutaway Diagram of Reese Products Goose Box
  1. The air bag can be adjusted to provide a smooth ride for both your truck and trailer. Because it is fully enclosed, it's protected from UV exposure and shielded from road hazards.
  2. Dual shock absorbers help to reduce bounce and relieve stress on your trailer frame.
  3. The integrated pivot tube allows the Goose Box to move fore and aft, minimizing chucking.
  4. The gooseneck coupler attaches to the 2-5/16 inch ball on your gooseneck trailer hitch.

  • Best Way to Improve Ride Quality of Trailer with Lippert 1716 Pin Box Towed with Turnoverball Hitch
    Since your truck has a B and W Turnoverball rail kit/gooseneck hitch installed in it and your trailer has a Lippert 1716 pin box model (thank you for providing that!) the best option to get rid of chucking will be with the Reese Goose Box part # RP55FR. This will give you the air ride cushioning you mentioned which will help a lot but also since gooseneck hitch couplers in general provide less chucking than fifth wheel hitches. So this will help quite a bit in two ways and would be the...

  • Will the Reese Goose Box Adapter for Lippert 1716 Work with Mega Cab
    The Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter part # RP55FR is about the same size as the standard pin box it's designed to replace so you won't gain cab clearance but you won't lose any either. It mounts to the same holes as the original as well so the height adjustment will be very similar. That said, I have attached a full dimensional drawing below as well so you can be certain it will work for you.

  • Reese Goose Box For a 2014 Forest River Nitro XLR Toy Hauler 5TH Wheel Camper
    Your 2014 Forest River Nitro XLR uses a 1621 pin box bolt pattern. You will need the Reese Goose Box # RP94720 to convert your Nitro to be connected using a gooseneck ball. You will not need any spacers for this, and when installing the pin box the bolt holes you use to mount the Goose Box will be determined by the height of the 5th wheel underbelly from your bedsides. You want to ensure that there is at least 5-6" clearance to reduce the risk of the underbelly hitting your bed rails or...

  • Solution for Transporting Tractors, Blowers, and Other Cargo on a Lifted Ford F-150
    While we do have a viable option for you, you are correct that your truck is too high to use the CargoSmart that the S-Curve Loading Ramp Set # 3483018. This is because this ramp has a maximum load height of 36" high. With that being said, all of our ramps do not work with trucks that are higher than 36 inches.
