Built-In Shock Absorption for a Smooth Ride

Whether you're hauling construction equipment or you're carrying your ATVs to the mud park, towing heavy-duty loads can be an intense job. You definitely don't want to have to deal with sharp, jolting movement every time your trailer hits a bump. Driving over bumps, potholes, and uneven terrain causes road shock. This can result in a rough ride for you and your cargo. It can even potentially damage your trailer. The Spartan from Gen-Y Hitch is designed to absorb road shock at the connection point to create a safe, smooth, and stable ride. This is thanks to the internal construction of the coupler, which is similar to that of a torsion axle.

gooseneck torsion

Pivot points are built into this gooseneck coupler. This allows for movement between the base of the coupler, which connects to the ball in your truck bed, and the top tube of the coupler, which connects to your trailer. When your vehicle hits a bump, the base of the coupler will move up or down accordingly.


Built into the Spartan are tubes with inner bars that are surrounded by rubber cords. As the coupler's base rises or falls, these inner bars twist inside of the tubes, attempting to follow the base's motion. But the rubber cords prevent the bars from twisting too far. And as each bar turns, these cords compress to absorb the shock. This means that any shock experienced by your truck can be absorbed before it reaches your trailer, and the shock experienced by your trailer won't get transferred to your truck.

This type of shock-absorption system is easy to maintain. Just regularly apply grease to the built-in zerk to keep the components in working condition. No airbags to fill. No small parts to repair or replace. No hassle.

Offset Design Gives Extra Clearance When Towing

This Gen-Y gooseneck coupler has an offset design. The bottom of the coupler, where it attaches to the ball, is positioned 5" away from the coupler tube, which inserts into the outer tube on your trailer. This provides 5" of extra clearance, giving you more space between your truck cab and trailer when making tight turns.

Designed for Recessed Hitch Balls

extended base

This gooseneck coupler is specifically designed for flatbed trucks that have the hitch ball mounted beneath the bed. The bottom portion of the tube on this coupler is longer than that of a standard gooseneck coupler so that it can easily reach the recessed hitch ball.

Easily Check Your Vertical Load

The vertical load, or tongue weight, refers to the weight that a fully loaded trailer exerts downward on the hitch ball of the tow vehicle. Too little vertical load can cause trailer sway and too much can cause poor performance.

scale upright

This Gen-Y gooseneck coupler has a built-in mechanical scale so that you can check to see if your vertical load is too high or too low. The highest arrow on the scale indicates your maximum vertical load (5,500 lbs). The lowest arrow indicates no vertical load (0 lbs). A vertical load of at least 4,000 lbs is recommended for the built-in shock absorption to function effectively. This means that the scale's white indicator marker should be between the highest arrow and the middle arrow when you hook up your trailer to tow.

I have a 2020 Silverado Custom Trail Boss 1500 and I pull a Shadow 2 horse slant gooseneck with 9' LQ and a bump out. The Trail Boss has a 5'9" box so the gooseneck is rather close the the cab. I bought the Gen-Y Spartan shock absorbing gooseneck coupler with 5" offset and it makes a huge difference pulling down the road. We have hauled the horses from MN to ND, MT, WY, CO, KS, NE, IA and back and have nothing but great things to say about the Gen-Y coupler. It is a must!

Review from a similar Spartan GN Coupler in Gooseneck Coupler

the product works great just be sure to order the correct weight rating for the loads you intend to haul. if you only haul 10,000 lbs. get the hitch for that rating. even though you can haul 15,000 lbs. you won't get the benefit of the flex if your hitch has a gross tongue weight that is too heavy. other than that, it's a great product.

Review from a similar Spartan GN Coupler in Gooseneck Coupler

Definitely rides better when the trailer is loaded. Only issue I have is that it increases the hitch height (my truck is lifted), but that's just the nature of the beast. Hopefully it hold's up to the Arizona sun.

With my trailer which is only a 6 k trailer I bought the 7.5k hitch yet empty it is maxed out wish there was a way to adjust

Review from a similar Spartan GN Coupler in Gooseneck Coupler

Holes in hitch don’t line up with the hole in tube on my 2018 MAXXD Trailer. With holes lined up the hitch is offset towards passenger side of truck. Was really looking forward to working this hitch. Very disappointed

There are situations where the existing outer tube of the gooseneck couple will not have the correct holes to line this adapter up with. It is okay to slide this inner tube into the outer tube aligned correctly and just tighten the set screws. You will not use the pin in this case.

  • How to Calculate Tongue Weight
    The tongue weight (pin weight) on a goose neck trailer is typically 20-25% of the total weight of the trailer. So yours would be anywhere from 3,000 lbs -4,000 lbs. The Gen-Y Spartan Shock Absorbing Gooseneck Coupler item # 325-GH-7061 you referenced has a tongue weight capacity of 5,500 lbs. You would have no problem pulling your 2018 Sundowner 38' Toy hauler with this coupler.

  • Will the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Gooseneck Trailer Coupler Work With A Recessed Gooseneck Hitch
    The base of the Convert-A-Ball Multi-Cushioned Gooseneck Trailer Coupler part # CG is 7" long x 5" wide which you can see in the attached photo and that should then allow you to determine if you have room within the recessed gooseneck hitch ball opening on your flatbed. The only other cushioned gooseneck trailer coupler we offer is the Gen-Y Gooseneck Coupler w/ Shock Absorption part # 325-GH-7061 which would require even more clearance so if the Convert-A-Ball Multi-Cushioned Gooseneck...

  • Does Electrical Ground Through the Gen-Y # 325-GH-7061
    Although the coupler, like the Gen-Y # 325-GH-7061, does provide some ground your main ground needs to be through your 7-Way connector, like part # H20046. The ground pin is the 5 o'clock position (see attached picture) so if you are having ground issues you need to check your connectors for corrosion as well as any other ground points like where your lights ground to the frame of your trailer.

  • What Are the Dimensions of the Gen-Y Pegasus Shocke Absorbing Gooseneck Coupler
    We currently do not have any videos of this in operation in the environment you mentioned, but I was able to reach out to my tech contact at Gen-Y who provided me with a diagram that you might find helpful to determine if this will work for you. The # 325-GH-7007 is similar to the # 325-GH-7006 shown in the diagram attached; the difference being that the # 325-GH-7007 has a 2” longer stem on the coupler. All of the height measurements would increase by 2” as I noted on this print. We do...

  • Ways to Make Coupling-Uncoupling Gooseneck Trailer Easier
    We do have a few things that might work out for your uncle. The first thing is the Wire Stick # C5G-STICK which is used for (and comes with) the Convert-A-Ball Multi-Cushioned Gooseneck Trailer Coupler # CG. This is basically just an extension that can be used to lock and unlock the coupler but you have to have a handle that faces up to use this. Another option which is to use a Gen-Y coupler in place of the current coupler that he is using. If he only tows one gooseneck trailer then...

  • Recommended Replacement Coupler for Gooseneck Trailer Currently Compatible with 2 Inch Ball
    There is not a 2 inch hitch ball option for a factory gooseneck system. My recommendation is to change your coupler to a 2-5/16 inch coupler for compatibility that has the towing capacity your trailer requires. We have both round inner tube couplers like # BD0287610300 and square couplers like # BD1289210300. We even have offset couplers like # BWTEXA4200 to give increased turning clearance and shock absorbing couplers like # 325-GH-7061. I've attached a link to the page for all your...

  • Custom Gooseneck on Aluminum Flatbed and Adding Anti-lock Disc Brakes to 40 Foot Triple Axle Trailer
    When customizing the brackets needed for the # BWGNRC800 to install to your 2007 Dodge RAM 3500 HD Flat Bed Crew Cab with dually chassis truck frame, you ideally want to be just slightly in front of your rear axle. Anywhere from 1 to 3 inches in front is best and what is done for the custom bracket kits where available. The system will ideally be flush with the top of the frame so the gooseneck ring holding the ball will actually sit just slightly above the rails (to protrude above the...
