Can I Make a 90 Degree Turn with the Reese Goosebox


RP94623 Reese goosebox Can it turn 90 and clear truck bed rails? Looks like it sits low to hook to ball but transitions upward at less of an angle than standard gooseneck trailer, I worry the pinbox would contact bed rails on a 90 degree turn?


Expert Reply:

You're definitely going to want to do some test runs after installing a Goose Box, like part # RP94720, or a trailer because you're correct that it's very unlikely you can make a full 90 degree turn. A Goose Box also doesn't increase your turning clearance either. In order to increase clearance to make turns you need to use a goosneck ball with an offset, such as part # C602. You need to choose an offset ball that fits your specific gooseneck hitch.
