We have some options for you, but the only Goose Box that fits your Lippert 1116 pin box is the 16,000 lb capacity Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter # RP94716-61301.

For an adapter that can work with the 18,000 lb GVWR of your 2015 Carbon 387, I recommend checking out the 20,000 lb capacity Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5G.

This same adapter with a 7-1/2" offset is the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter with Offset # CAB-C5GX1216.

The only things to note with the Convert-A-Ball system is that your height from the top of your truck's gooseneck ball to the base of your king pin box must be between 12" and 16". Additionally, this is not for use with cushioned or pivoting pin boxes, or factory towing prep packages on 2011-present Fords and 2013-present Rams.

I have added links to video reviews, installs and our selection of 5th wheel to gooseneck adapters for you to check out.
