Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Adapter Kit Compatible with Curt Gooseneck Hitch


Is this part 9480 compatible with a curt gooseneck hitch with flip over ball? I dont know if the following is pertinent information for answering the question, but the truck is a 2018 Chevy Silverado LT 3500 HD and the trailer is a 2015 Flagstaff Classic Super Lite by Forrest River that has a Reese Revolution pin box.

I have a solution for you, but the # 9480 is not compatible with the Curt Hide-a-Goose hitch # C61301-52 and there is not a 5th wheel hitch that will attach directly to this gooseneck ball. You're going to want to start by using the Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter for Curt Double Lock Gooseneck Trailer Hitches - 20,000 lbs # C16210, which will allow you to connect a 5th wheel hitch that fits in the industry standard base rails.

With the adapter, I recommend using the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Slide Bar Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C16115 since it can be used with Reese Revolution pin box.

You will need to lock out your Reese Revolution pin box in this configuration, so that it cannot rotate on the turret since you are using a gooseneck hitch with an adapter that would create more than one pivot point and potentially create a dangerous situation. You'll need Wedge # C16991 to keep the king pin from rotating in side the hitch.

I've linked some review videos of these parts for you to have a look at.
