Can 2021 Ram 3500 Short Bed W/ OEM Prep Pkg Tow 2021 Keystone Carbo 418 Toy Hauler W/ Reese GooseBox

Question:

Hi there, it seems there aren’t a lot of clear answers, some say it works, other say it doesn’t. Can you provide any guidance if a Goosebox will provide enough cab clearance to tow a 2021 Keystone Carbon 418? I am going from a long bed Ford with a Curt A25 to this new shortbed mega cab Ram. I would rather have the Goosebox than use a slider if possible.

I looked at some pictures of the 2021 Keystone Carbon 418 Toy Hauler you purchased, and since it has a tappered nose you may be able to have decent cab to trailer clearance using a Reese Goose Box to tow it with your new 2021 Ram 3500 Short bed, but it will still not allow a full 90 degrees of turning clearance.

The best way to get the additional turning clearance is going to be using a sliding hitch like B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 20K # BWRVK3670 which gives you 12" rearward clearance when making a sharp turn.

If you decide to go with the Reese Goose Box you will need to determine which model pin box your trailer has. You will need to look at the pin box and look for a four digit model number like 1116 or 1621. If you do not find that number just send me a picture of the pin box serial number sticker and I would be happy to identify it for you.

There are three different models of the Reese Goose Box:

The # RP94720 which has a 20000lb trailer weight rating and replaces the Lippert 1621, 1621HD, and 0719, or the 1116 and 1716 pin boxes by using spacer kit # RP61301.

The # RP94716-61301 which has a 16000lb trailer weight rating and replaces the Lippert 0115, 1116 and 1716 pin boxes.

The # RP94716 which also has a 16000lb trailer weight rating and replaces the Lippert 0719, 1621 and 1621HD and Fabex PB-600 Series pin boxes.

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

Thanks for the picture!

I reached out to my contact at Lippert and based on the information on your pin box serial number sticker your pin box is an 1116 with a 19000lb rating.

The correct Reese Goose Box for your trailer will be the # RP94720 which has a 20000lb rating, and you will also need the spacer kit # RP61301 as well.
