Expert Answers about Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


  • Reese M5 Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2020 Ford F-350 with OEM Rail Kit
  • Since you said to assume the loaded weight of the trailer will be 20k the Reese M5 hitch you'll want is the 27k model part # RP30922 which you'll be really happy with. The price difference between it and the 20k model # RP30921 is almost non-existent so going with the higher rated option really has no downside. A buddy of mine just installed this hitch in his new Ford truck and he really likes it. He came from a Companion hitch which many regard as the nicest and he said this hitch was...

  • Is Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter Compatible with Spinning Hitch Ball
  • Yes, the Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter for Recessed Ball # DM8550046 is compatible with a gooseneck hitch ball that can spin. It basically clamps to the hitch ball and then pulls up to put pressure on the hitch ball which keeps it from spinning. I have attached a photo from the linked instructions that goes over this. Please note that the part you mentioned is for a recessed gooseneck hitch ball. If you have a standard gooseneck hitch ball (that doesn't sit...

  • Would Gen-Y 325-GH-8045 Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter Pin Box Damage 5th Wheel
  • Due to the shock absorbing properties provided by the Gen-Y # 325-GH-8045 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter Pin Box, it would be much less likely to cause damage than a rigid adapter. If you're concerned about damage, the best alternative is to avoid adapters all together and use a fifth wheel hitch but if that isn't feasible the Gen-Y adapter which is a compatible replacement for the Lippert 1621 pin box would be a good choice. A better option would be the Reese Goosebox that's compatible...

  • How to Determine What 5th Wheel King Pin You Have to Determine Correct Reese Goose Box
  • Although we don't have any way of knowing what king pin is on any specific trailer, but there should be on a sticker or a plate somewhere on the pin box itself that shows exactly what pin box model you have. Barring that, you will need to either measure your bolt hole spacing as in the linked help article I added, or contact Forest River with your VIN and they will be able to tell you the pin box that was originally on it. You can use that information to determine what Reese Goose Box...

  • Do Gooseneck Hitch to 5th Wheel Pin Box Adapters Have Warranty Implications
  • I spoke with the folks at Gen-Y hitch regarding your question about their # GY66FR Shock Absorbing 5th wheel to Gooseneck Pin Box. I'm told that although the pin box isn't Lippert approved yet, that will happen soon. Lippert is currently testing this product in order to give it their 'stamp of approval', but the process has been delayed by the Covid situation.

  • Recommended 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter for 2018 Ram 3500

  • Best Rated 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ford F-250 Crew Cab V8 Turbo Diesel 4WD
  • All your calculations are right on. The truth is that most people do overload their trucks, because adding more and more options to be able to achieve a higher towing capacity can get pretty costly, pretty quickly. I took a look at the Ford Trailer Towing Guide that you mentioned. It indeed states that your 2019 F-250 Diesel, crew cab, 4x4 160 in WB and 6-3/4 ft box and 3.31 axle ratio, is limited to a gross trailer weight rating (GTWR) of 14,100 lbs.

  • Best Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Hitch with Adjustable Height for 2018 Ram 3500 Flatbed Truck
  • I have a solution for you, but because the B&W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Hitch is not height adjustable, it likely won't work for your application. Depending on the size of your 5th Wheel trailer, I recommend switching to the Demco Recon Gooseneck to 5th Wheel # DM8550046 which has adjustable height settings of 11-1/2, 12-3/4 and 14" above the base of the hitch.

It is compatible with a Demco hijacker hitch like # DM6076P-UL-21K, but not the Hijacker Autoslide hitch like # DM8550035. My recommendation for your application is to use the Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter for Recessed Ball - Single Jaw - 21,000 lbs # DM8550046.

  • Reese Goosebox Recommendation for 2019 Grand Design Solitude 310GK

The 20k version part # RP94720 that you referenced would technically work too but it would have more weight capacity than you'd technically need.

  • Using GVWR to Determine Proper Gen-Y Hitch Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter Pin Box
  • I spoke with Gen-Y Hitch to confirm the right gooseneck pin box for you. To determine the proper pin box, they use a formula based on your GVWR. The tongue weight of your trailer can be anywhere between 10 and 30 percent of that number (30 is extremely high, but possible). Based on that, your 2020 Keystone Cougar (at 11,500 pounds of GVWR) can end up being between 1150 and 3450 pounds. This lines up with your measured weight. As such, the 2.5K Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck...

  • Will the Gen-Y Hitch Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Pin Box Work On a Short Bed Truck
  • The Gen-Y Hitch Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Pin Box part # GY56FR is designed for use with long bed trucks, it would be no different than using a standard pin box with fixed fifth wheel hitch in regards to turning clearance. In regards to compatibility, it's designed to replace a Lippert 1621 so if this is what you have on the trailer now it will work fine but I can't look this up for you. The best option would be to use a sliding 5th wheel, the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer...

  • Can the Convert-A-Ball Gooseneck Adapter Be Used With A cushioned 5th Wheel Pin Box?
  • I have a couple of solutions – just not with the Convert-A-Ball. The Convert-A-Ball # CAB-C5G gooseneck adapter cannot be used with most cushioned or air ride pin boxes, or rotating pin boxes.. The additional flex of two cushioning devices creates leveraged angles that can break both pin box parts and truck parts. I checked with my engineering contact at Convert-A-Ball specifically about your Roto-Flex and it is not compatible with the Convert-A-Ball adapter. There are two solutions....

  • Demco Recon Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter that Can be Used with CM Flat Bed
  • Demco makes a special version of the Recon hitch for flat bed applications that have recessed balls actually! So what you'd want instead is the part # DM8550046. This has a shorter overall height to make up for the additional height of the flat bed truck and has the portion that attaches to the ball sit a bit lower. I attached a picture of this installed on a flat bed truck similar ot yours for you to check out as well.

Since the Curt Gooseneck Hitch # C60700 is designed for a self-locking hitch ball, like part # C60629, it means that the Curt gooseneck isn't compatible with the X5.
