How To Hook 5th Wheel Trailer W/ Air Ride Pin Box To Gooseneck Trailer Hitch


5th wheel hitch to gooseneck adapter with 5th wheel air ride, what options?


Expert Reply:

There are a few options for you, but both will involve replacing your air ride pin box as there is currently not an adapter compatible with an air ride pin box..

The first option is replacing your air ride pin box with a standard pin box which will allow you to use a 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter like the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter w/ Offset - 12" to 16" Tall # CAB-C5GX1216.

The option I recommend is replacing the pin box with a gooseneck pin box like the Reese Goose Box.

To determine the correct replacement pin box you will need to idenetify which model your current pin box is. First look for a white sticker with a four digit number like 1116 or 1621. If you cannot find that sticker then just send me a picture of the serial number which is located on a white sticker on the pin box.

The available Reese Goose Boxes are as follows:
# RP94720 which has a 20000lb rating and replaces the 1621, 1621HD, and 0719 pin boxes.
# RP94716 which has a 16000lb rating and replaces the 1621, 1621HD, 0719, and Fabex PB-600 series pin boxes.
# RP94716-61301 which has a 16000lb rating and replaces the 0115, 1116, and 1716 pin boxes.

I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
