How to Pull 5th Wheel Trailer With Gooseneck Trailer Hitch 8339


Will the Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter work on the curt 8339 flip gooseneck ball?


Expert Reply:

The gooseneck you mentioned is the Fold-Down Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 8339 (which is actually made by Draw-Tite as opposed to Curt) and while it's certainly possible for you to tow a 5th wheel trailer, there are no rail adapters that will work with this hitch.

The part you need instead is the Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # DM8550045.

This will give you a very solid 5th wheel hitch with a great jaw system that simply attaches to your Draw-Tite gooseneck for a simple and easy way to tow up to 21,000 lbs, assuming your truck has that capacity.

I have added a link to a video review as well as a link to the installation instructions of the Demco Recon for you to check out.
