Can Reese Goose Box be Used with Short Bed Truck


Will this work with a 2017 F350 Shortbed?


Expert Reply:

If the nose of the trailer you install the Reese Goose Box # RP94720 on is tapered to help with short bed turning clearance there's a pretty good chance you'll be able to make tight turns with your towing setup. But if the trailer has a wide and square nose out front you wouldn't have the needed turning clearance. The Goose Box is basically the best possible fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter but it's drawback is short bed applications since there might be turning clearance interference.

This is the big advantage that fifth wheel hitch setups have over gooseneck hitches is that you can use a sliding fifth wheel hitch or a pivoting pin box like a Sidewinder # RP34FR and you'd have the turning clearance needed.
