Can a Reese Goose Box Fifth Wheel Adapter be Used with 2019 Ram 3500 Mega Cab

Question:

I have a mega cab with 5th wheel setup.

The mega cab versions of the 2019 Ram 3500 have a 6-1/2 foot bed so if you were to use the Reese Goose Box part # RP94720 you'd need to make sure the trailer you install it on as a tapered nose which would allow better turning clearances. It's definitely possible but if the trailer has a standard width nose without any taper you'd most likely have cab/trailer nose interference in tight turns. If you send me the info on the trailer you are considering though I can check it out and give you a more exact answer hopefully.

So I checked out your Grand Design Reflection 311BHS and it has the Max Turn Radius nose which is a tapered design to allow for short bed truck turning clearance. So what that means is that if you went with a Reese Goose Box you'd have the turning clearance needed.

Also I was able to confirm the fit of the Goose Box part # RP94720 as well since your camper came with a Lippert 1621 pin box and this Goose Box is designed to fit that style!

Question:

So which option will be better for me in regards to clearance, safety and easy to use:- Reese Gooseneck with ball in the bed- Anderson aluminum hitch with adapter

Definitely the Goose Box as it's only adapter solution out there that won't void the trailer frames warranty. Plus it's cushioned and very easy to use!

Thanks for your great information. You are great. Now, which ball should I use for my Ram 3500 Single wheel and chains corrosion free options will be better

For a gooseneck hitch I recommend the B and W Turnoverball hitch part # BWGNRK1320 for your 2019 Ram 3500. This USA made gooseneck hitch is widely considered to be the best hitch around due to how well it's made and the ease of install and use. For safety chains we then have the # RP49151 which was designed for use with the Gooseboxes.
