The Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter w/ Offset - 12" to 16" Tall # CAB-C5GX1216 will work for you assuming you have the OEM 5th wheel prep package with the gooseneck in the center. While this adapter does provide an offset for better clearance, it is likely that you will be unable to make a full 90 degree turn with this setup.

I recommend taking the truck out to an empty parking lot and have a someone with you to watch the cab to trailer clearance. This way you will be able to find what your limits are.

I have attached a video review for your reference.
