Can the C5GX1216 be used without the offset?, i.e.will the ball holder shaft fit into the main trunk base without the offset piece?

The Convert-A-Ball 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter w/ Offset, part # CAB-C5GX1216, is designed as one piece and to be used as a 5th-wheel-to-gooseneck adapter that requires an offset of 7-1/2 inches. It is not made to be taken apart. It would be used on trucks with shorter than 8-foot beds, but not shorter than 6-foot beds.

If you do not need the offset on your 2008 Ford F-150 you can use the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter, part # CAB-C5G. This is the same adapter as above, but without the offset.

I am including a link to a FAQ page on adapters for towing a 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch.
