It sounds like you may be asking about a Reese Goosebox replacement 5th wheel trailer pin box like # RP94720 that can replace an OEM pin box such as a Lippert 1621. These allow towing a 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch. A Goosebox is the only type of adapter that does NOT increase stress of the trailer frame. It is endorsed by Lippert Components Inc. and will not affect the warranty on their trailer frames.

All such items are shown on the linked page and the included article will help with selecting the correct one.

If you plan to use a tool box in the truck bed be sure to consider the clearance required for the specific trailer. A box that installs behind the cab will be less likely to interfere with operation and motion of the Goosebox.
