The Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch # 9480 is designed for compatibility with the B&W Gooseneck systems. There is a specific adapter used for this combination included with the adapter. The biggest issue with a flatbed is the bed is normally not corregated like a traditional truck bed to give that increased stability of the feet in the grooves. Because the feet are adjustable you can get a good amount of grip at the feet but this hitch can still move slightly because the square shaft isn't all the way through the adapter.

The suggested 5th wheel hitch for your application is the B&W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3050. This hitch allows more adjustment to ensure the correct fit.
