I might have a solution for you. However, unfortunately, the Reese Goose Box, # RP94716-61301, although a fit for a Lippert 1116, is not rated correctly for your to replace your current pin box.

If you can provide me with the year, make, and model of your vehicle, I might be able to find you a B&W Turnover ball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, like # BWGNRK1012-5W and a Companion 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W. These two B&W products fit a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 8 ft bed and is an example only.

The under bed hit will allow you to still use a gooseneck trailer when you need and the Companion 5th wheel will drop into the gooseneck ball opening. The Companion will allow you to tow your 5th wheel trailer.

The Companion 5th wheel has a 20,000 lbs towing capacity and uses a double jaw for a more secure king pin connection. The dual jaw system will help eliminate hitch noise and chucking.

The Companion 5th wheel also comes in a slider hitch model if you have a short bed vehicle.

I have linked a demo video of the B&W hitch for you to review.
