Best Method of Towing Reese Revolution Equipped 5th Wheel with 2016 Ram 3500 with Gooseneck Hitch


I have a 2016 ram 3500 dually with a bandw gooseneck hitch and 2015 jayco 27.5bhs fifth wheel trailer. I want to be able to tow my trailer with the gooseneck that is in my truck. The trailer currently has a Reese revolution hitch, I have attached pictures of the stickers that are visible. I think a Reese goosebox is the only way to convert my setup. Please let me know which part # will fit my trailer properly and if there is a different way to use the gooseneck hitch in my pickup.

According to Reese, their Revolution has a unique bolt pattern that couldn't be replaced with anything else so you're going to need to use a 5th wheel hitch. If you didn't have the Revolution rotating pin box, a B & W Companion would be a great option, but the torque placed on the hitch/wedge by the Revolution could damage the hitch attachment to the vehicle, so this route isn't recommended either.

Your best bet would be to remove the existing gooseneck hitch and replace it with a industry standard bed rail kit like # C16430-204 and the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Slide Bar Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C16115 which is compatible with your rotating Revolution pin box. You will also need the # C16991 wedge to prevent the king pin from rotating in the hitch jaws.
