Is Reese Goose Box Fifth Wheel Adapter Vertical Height Adjustable


I have a 2018 F250 4x4 diesel short bed. Am looking at the Reese Goose Box 5th wheel to gooseneck air ride coupler adapter for a 2017 KZ Durango 1500 D 251RLT fifth wheel. Is there an offset ball available that would give my short bed more clearance. My truck has the ford factory oem holes in the bed. Also, how much height adjustment can be made on the Reese gooseneck adapter?


Expert Reply:

The Reese Goose Boxes, including # RP94716-61301, adjust vertically where they mount to the trailer only. There is no other height adjustment on it but typically on fifth wheel trailers there is a few sets of mounting holes that can be used. There isn't an offset ball for the factory fifth wheel gooseneck hitch you have in your 2018 Ford F-250 short bed.

I looked up pictures of your 2017 KZ Durango 1500 D251RLT and it has a tapered nose which will help with turning clearance but since you have a short bed you may not be able to make a full 90 degree turn when backing up.
