Helpful Expert Reply:

The Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter w/ Offset - 12" to 16" Tall # CAB-C5GX1216 has an offset of 7-1/2 inches. This adapter is designed for use with 6 foot to 8 foot truck beds and allows your trailer to sit back slightly from a standard connection to allow you more turning clearance. This also gives you a cushioned connection for a smoother ride.

The amount of clearance will be dependent on your trailer measurements as well as your 2017 Titan XD's gooseneck location measurements. I recommend measuring from your king pin to the front corners of your trailer and then adding 7-1/2 inches to that and measuring from your gooseneck ball to see your turning clearances and restrictions. The difference between the corners of your truck and the corners of the trailer will be the clearance, just remember to account for the width of your trailer and the flat surface between your corner of your trailer.
