Is There a Reese Goosebox to Replace a Fabex 520 Pin Box


I do not see a listing for a goosebox that will replace the Fabex 520 pin box on my 5th wheel. Do they make one?

I may have a solution for you, but unfortunately there is not a Reese Goosebox that can be used to replace your Fabex 520 pin box. However, if you need to tow a 5th wheel trailer and currently have a gooseneck hitch in your truck then there are some 5th wheel hitches that could be used in lieu of swapping the pinbox.

If your gooseneck hitch is a B&W brand Turnover Ball, I'd recommend the # BWRVK3500 Companion for long bed trucks or the sliding version, part # BWRVK3400 for a short bed Ford Super Duty. The Demco Recon # DM8550045 might also be a good alternative if you've got a standard gooseneck hitch in the truck.

I've also attached a helpful article we did on Gooseneck adapters that gives you some different options; you'll want to keep in mind that using one of those could have implications with your fifth wheel's frame warranty if it's still covered by one.
