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 extend the life of the air bag by ensuring that compression occurs in a controlled fashion.


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.

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


This Goosebox is heavy but I was able to get it installed by myself with help from my wife while tightening the bolt. When UPS freight delivered this, the driver was kind enough to load it directly into my truck so I did not have to lift it up. Using my truck I was able to back it into position where it went in effortlessly. I first took the zirk fitting out so I did not break it. The Goosebox was shored up using 2X4 pieces and then strapped in place, so it was in position while backing it up to the fifth wheel. This is a well made and stout pinbox replacement. The one issue I do have is that the air inflation gauge is very hard to see. Basically it is a black bar inside a black hole. The next time I am hooked up, I intend to put some white or other bright colored paint on the bar for easier viewing. No more lifting the heavy hitch to of the bed to use the truck. As always etrailer is hard to beat, fast shipping, expert advice, great prices.


Comments
After a year now, I can say this was a great move for me. It functions flawlessly with no chucking or clanking of any kind. Just be sure not to over inflate.

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


Very heavy duty, probably should have got the 16k. Installed on 43’ 2022 Salem Hemisphere 356QB at the dealership. Never moved the trailer with 5th wheel hitch so not sure how that would have compared. The guys at the RV dealership were really impressed with this hitch and now recommend this to anyone wanting to switch to goose neck hitch. Air ride is AMAZING! absorbs every bump without transferring to toe vehicle. You can see the trailer and hitch moving but don’t feel it. Extremely happy I purchased this rather than the 5th wheel setup for factory towing prep. I think this is well worth the couple hundred extra and not have to deal with that in the bed.

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


Overall a great upgrade, but not perfect.
Happy to have gone this way from the previous 5th wheel hitch setup.

Pros:
* Having nothing in the bed of the truck, except when towing.
* There is more room for a larger bed chest without the 5th wheel hitch (replaced a B&W Companion slider).
* Air bag system seems less jarring on the frame of the 5th wheel than the B& W Companion / Lippert Rotaflex.
* Seems to have reduced further what little "chucking" there was with the Companion/Rota-Flex setup.

Cons:
* Lining up to hitch is a PITA. Reese should really rethink this.
* Towing is not as confidence inspiring. The trailer feels like it wallows in rough undulating turns in comparison to the 5th wheel connection.
* Sits much lower than the 5th wheel pin box, so at level RV sites the bottom of the hitch is lower than the truck bed. That affects the length of RV site needed as the truck can't back under the trailer to park.
* The pinbox structure requires more room in the bed, limiting what can be placed on the sides & rear of the bed.

To help with hitching, I'm going to make a magnetic "sighting" system that can be seen through the rear window. something that can be tossed in the bed chest when not in use. Currently I'm using the bed camera (in the CHMSL) along with a camera that I set on the wheel well, and that is marginal at best. It still takes multiple attempts because of the limited tolerance. Once the bed chest is installed the camera will be pretty ineffective.

I like the Goosebox was easy to install. Took me and wife about 2 hours but I am in my mid 70’s. I used my tractor and loader which took a lot of work out of it.

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


I have completed the installation of the Reese Gooseneck pin Box 20K on my 2019 Columbus 1492 366RL. The installation went well for 2 people. The installation was done as suggested in the instructions, one step below the original fifth wheel hitch.
That actually proved to be too high for my 2019 GMC DenaliHD 4x4 DRW so I moved the hitch to the same position as the original equipment and the height works much better. I was able to unbolt and reset the position of the hitch by myself using the truck bed as a "work bench" and raising and lowering the RV to align the holes. Haven't towed it yet but will soon and provide more info. As you can tell by the photos, the safety chain installation was very easy.


Comments
The Reese Gooseneck is awesome. Smoother pull and less bouncing. I recommend anyone with a fifth wheel to convert to a reese gooseneck.

Very simple ordering process, great communication all the way to the carrier.
Product arrived well packaged and strapped to a pallet.
Installation was straight forward and only took an hour including removal of the old gooseneck.
Looking forward to using this in the next week.

I love the reese goosebox. It may be a little harder to hook up with, but there are ways to help with that 1 is utube. It makes for a much nicer and smother ride compared to the 5th wheel hitch.

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


The Reese Goose box is a great addition to our fifth wheel. It torsion flexibility and its air bag give great control over the ride. We replaced the standard Lippert fifth wheel hitch with this and the ride difference over the rigid Lippert hitch is amazing. It was easy to install and is very easy to connect and disconnect to the tow vehicle. We're very glad we made this decision and recommend it strongly.

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


I think the Goose Box is a great product. However, I searched on the eTrailer site and found that someone with the same make/model of RV and was guided to a particular Goose Box. I contacted etrailer, provided them with the year, make and model of RV - and asked to confirm if this was the same pinbox and if this particular model of Goose Box was correct and would fit my RV. trailer confirmed, so I placed the order. Unfortunately, in my model year, the pinbox changed and the Goose Box did not fit. etrailer did offer to return the product if I paid approximately $XXX in shipping. Coupled with etrailer sending me the wrong chains - I will look elsewhere for all my future RV needs.


Comments
Pin boxes can be different on an RV even if they made by the same manufacturer. The easiest way to determine which pin box you have is by looking on the pin box. There should be a sticker that gives the pin box manufacturers name and the model number. If you cannot find the sticker or it is not legible, another way to find the pin box information is to contact the trailer manufacturer directly. They can determine which OEM pin box was installed on your trailer using the trailers serial number. The final way to determine which pin box you have is by taking a few measurements. I have attached an FAQ article on measuring your pin box as well as a photo showing the measurements you will want to take. Based on the various measurements, we can determine which pin box you have and which replacement air ride pin box will work for you.

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


This really was a game changer from my conventional hitch set up. No more lifting a heavy hitch receiver out of my truck bed when not in use, and the hitching process is a breeze. No binding or hitch slide issues. The ride was much smoother with the air system. I installed it myself with the help of one other person and didn't have any problems. Have about 6k miles on it now and it's awesome. Worth the money.

IF you have a gooseneck ball and a fifth wheel RV, then this is the perfect match for your rig! The Reese Goosebox changes everything! Easier hook up and unhooking. Smooth ride and easy installation. etrailer has plenty of videos for review and installation, plus you can call them and ask about it if you have any questions. I have had it for a year now and just installed it on its second camper and I would have it any other way! It is exactly what you need!

It works very well. The whiplash is gone. I would have given it 6 stars except for the fact that it leaks a little air. I have to fill it every month or so. I have a friend with the same hitch and the same problem. I haven't found the leak yet in spite of spraying soapy water etc. etc.

One year later and still very glad I made the switch. I have had to re-inflate the air bag a few times, but I have no regrets whatsoever about this purchase.

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


After being a little hesitant on the purchasing of this item, I did research and pulled the trigger. I am so glad that I did. I love the fact that I could remove the rails in my truck from my 5th wheel. Hooking up the 5th wheel was another concern, as I can not see the goose ball, but proper placement of a car antenna and magnet allowing me to see the center line of my truck and camper and as soon as the hitch hits the antenna I am centered over the ball. I love it.

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


This thing is great! Install was a breeze took about 2 hours to install taking my time and torque. All I did was sat the pin box up on cardboard and wooden blocks, then slid the pin box under the king pin when it was close enough. A buddy and I installed it.

Towing is very smooth and nice and easy. No bucking.

Everything is great with this gooseneck pin box. I'm extremely happy and I'm even at the camp site right now reviewing this! Thanks etrailer.

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


I had changed from a 2500 to a 3500 DRW that happened to include the GM puck system.

I was left with a choice: do I spend hundreds on a puck adapter system to allow my old industry standard rail fifth wheel hitch to work with my new truck? Or do I sell it for as much as I can, and change over to something like the Goosebox?

In the end, I was able to sell my old fifth wheel hitch and purchase this Goosebox, and the difference cost about as much as the adapter would have cost. Furthermore, the bed of my truck is now eternally empty and usable without needing to climb in and disassemble a heavy hitch, and I even lost a bit of weight in the bed.

Yes, the Goosebox is heavy, but it is certainly not heavIER than a normal pinbox plus the weight of my old hitch. If my guess is right, I probably lost 50-100 lbs.

To add to that, once the bag is inflated, the ride is so smooth. It's easily one of the best upgrades I did to my truck and trailer setup.

Yes, hooking up is SLIGHTLY more complex than a traditional fifth wheel, but the time difference is minutes at most. Less, once you get used to it, or you have a good spotter to help.

I kept the old pin box around, because I will want to keep this setup if I ever change trailers!

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


Great quality and easy to use. This hitch makes the camper ride so smooth on the truck. It eliminated the forward/backward chucking that happened every time we hit a bump in the road. Mutch more pleasant to drive. It is also very nice not to have a large hitch to remove from the truck. I use my truck between camping trips and the bed is open and free without lugging a 5th wheel in and out. Other people in the campgrounds constantly ask me about the "strange looking" hitch on my camper.

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


My camper is 4 yrs old. I was using a gooseneck offset adapter to hitch fifth wheel to truck B&W gooseneck hitch. I upgraded to the Reese 16k Goosebox with a recommendation from a friend. I am absolutely impressed by how this hitch tows. No more chucking, the airbag and shocks add a much needed level of comfort. My camper is a Starcrart AR-One Maxx 26BHS. I’m towing with a 2005 Ram 3500 4x4 CCSB. I am using the B&W offset hitch ball to create more space between the truck cab and camper bulkhead. Highly recommend this hitch to anyone looking to tow their 5’er with a gooseneck ball hitch.

After one year of use the Goosebox has been a joy to pull with. Initial hookup is a learning curve compared to a traditional 5th wheel hitch but simple and quick after a few trips. Found a bed mounted camera eases the hookup process and
love the open space of our truck bed when unhooked!

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


I had this hitch delivered to my RV dealer for installation. I failed to give them instructions or link to video, and there were no instructions in the box. However, it was a pretty straightforward install. I picked up the RV, aired the bag to “half” on the indicator and it rode like a dream… as I expected it would. SOO much better than using a fifth wheel to me. But then again, I’m a very strong proponent of goosenecks anyway. Been pulling trailers off and on for… let’s just say over 45 years.

Review from a similar Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


1. It has developed a noisy sqeeking sound that I have not been able to find. I have used the grease fitting, but didn't seem to help.
2. The air level indicator could be a bright color for a better visual.
3. The pull cable was a little short, had to extend it.
4. The ride is a little more bouncier than a 5th wheel hitch.
Overall- not having the bulky 5th wheel hitch in the bed of the truck is nice

    The Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter that you referenced, part # RP85FR, is a replacement only for Lippert 0719, 1621, 1621HD pin boxes.
