Can I Use An Offset Gooseneck Ball 2019 Ford F-350 Factory Prep So Tailgate Does Not Hit Trailer


Is there an offset ball hitch for the Ford F350 with the 8ft bed and installed factory puck system? The tailgate hits the front of the trailer and i only need about 2 or 3 inches to fix that issue. Or is there an adjustment on the goose box you can make to move the camper back? Thank you.

I may have an option for you but unfortunately there aren't any hitch balls available with an offset that fit the factory puck system package on the 2019 Ford F-350 SuperDuty.

Since you are using a Reese Goosebox there is not an offset adapter available or a way to move to adjust the goosebox to move the trailer back. The only real option is to remove the Goose Box pin box and replace it with a traditional king pin box. Then you can use the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter w/ Offset part # CAB-C5GX1216 which will provide 7-1/2" of offset however, the ride will not be as comfortable compared to the air cushioned Goosebox.
