Can the Reese Goose Box be Used on a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Short Bed


I am looking for a truck 2019 GM with pre configured 5th/goose ball to tow my 2018 Grand Design Reflection 303RLS. Will the Reese Goose Box #RP94622 - 16,000 lb work in the GM 6 foot 6 inch bed. You have it listed but will there be any turning angle limitations without a slider.


Expert Reply:

The Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter part # RP94716 is not designed for use in a short bed truck. There would be little difference between this and a standard pin box in regards to turning clearance. Therefore, if the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 you're looking for has a short bed then the Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter is not your best option.

Instead, I recommend a rotating pin box and a fixed 5th wheel hitch as this setup won't require you to enter and exit the vehicle each time you make a sharp turn. For this, I recommend the Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pin with Rotating Turret part # RP34FR if you have a Lippert 1621 pin box and the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch part # BWRVK3700. This is in my opinion the best 5th wheel towing setup for your truck. The B&W Companion is second to none with it's 1" thick dual locking jaws that dramatically reduce both chucking/jarring and it's removable head for easy setup.

I have attached an install/review video on each of the above items for you as well.
