Hands down, the 5th wheel trailer to gooseneck trailer hitch that I recommend the most is the Ranch Hitch, # AM3139. It has the longest offset available at 8 inches. It is also rated for 6,000 pounds pin weight and 24,000 pounds gross trailer weight.

It is also height adjustable from 11-3/4 inches to 14-3/4 inches. To determine the height you need, back your truck into position as if you were hooking up your fifth-wheel trailer, making sure that the truck and trailer are level. Then measure from the pin plate (the bottom of the pin box) down to the top of the ball in the bed of your truck. The measurement you get is the height of the adapter you will need.

If you go with this adapter I recommend adding the safety cables, # AM3109.

If you want a cushioned adapter, you can use a Convert-A-Ball adapter like # CAB-C5GX1216 for a height of 14 to 16 inches. The pin weight capacity on these models is 2,000 pounds and the gross trailer weight is 20,000 pounds. The offset is 7-1/2 inches.
