Availability of Goose Box to Replace 19K Lippert 1116 Pin Box


Would like to preplace my Lippert 1116 19000# fifthwheel hitch with a Reese Goose Box. Which one will work for my set up?


Expert Reply:

We do have the Reese Goose Box # RP94716-61301, which is designed to replace the Lippert 1116 pin box on your trailer. The issue though is that this particular unit features a towing capacity of 16,000 pounds, so you will need to follow this reduced capacity if you go this route. There is not a higher-rated Goose Box available that will work on your trailer.

Another option that will allow you to maintain the capacity of your existing pin box is with the Convert-A-Ball Adapter # CAB-C5G. This adjustable coupler adapter will bolt to your existing king pin and connect to the gooseneck ball on your truck. It features interior polyurethane cushions to act as shock absorbers for a smooth ride and it has a 20,000 pound towing capacity.

Just note that this is not recommended for use with factory-installed towing prep packages from Ford, GM, Dodge, or Nissan.

I have attached a short video demonstration on this product so you can see exactly how it works.
