Recommended 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Pin Box Adapter


Im buying a new fifth wheel and wondering if I should buy another Goosebox for this one, or are there any new options I should consider? Ill be towing a Cougar 364BHS with an F350 crew cab standard bed truck.

The first step would be to determine which OEM pin box the 5th wheel you're interested in uses.

If the 5th wheel you purchase has a pin box that's compatible with the available Goosebox models, the Goosebox is still a great option, but if you have a Lippert 1621 or 1621HD, Gen Y now offers the Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter Pin Box, part # 325-GH-8045. The pin box functions like a torsion axle, with no air bags or fittings that can leak and fewer moving parts. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the Goose Box, but the Gen Y offers some advantages.

If you have the Lippert 1621 or 1621HD, I'd recommend the Gen Y # 325-GH-8045. If you have a Lippert 0719, I'd recommend the # RP94720 Goose Box. For the Fabex PB-600, use # RP94716 or for the Lippert 0115 or 1116, use # RP94716-61301.

I've linked to product description videos of the Gen Y pin box and the Goose Box.
