Will the Reese Goosebox Work On a 2020 GMC Sierra Short Bed


I have a 2020 Sierra 3500 shortbed, SRW and will purchase the Raptor model 351 Toyhauler in the spring. I want to use the Gen-Y or Reese Goosebox to tow. Is it possible and what about the turning radius? I will need the 20k option in either platform.


Expert Reply:

The Reese Gooseboxes like part # RP94720 and Gen-Y Hitch Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel Adapters like part # GY66FR aren't designed to increase turning clearance when compared to standard factory equipped pin boxes. Therefore, certain truck and trailers combos will have turning clearance issues. The amount of restriction will vary by truck and trailer so measuring beforehand would be best.

If you want full unimpeded turning clearance you'll need a sliding fifth wheel hitch for which I recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch part # BWRVK3775.
