Is Pin Box Drilling Required to Install Convert-A-Ball 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter CAB-C5GX1216


Do you have to drill into hitch on trailer to mount this adapter?


Expert Reply:

You will need to bolt the offset 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter # CAB-C5GX1216 to the trailer pin box. The offset necessitates bolting on the adapter to handle the extra stress.

Using the offset version does not provide any addition clearance when making tight turns because it does not move the pivot point back. So if bolting it on is not an option for you, using the regular version, # CAB-C5G, would be the way to go since you will not have to bolt it on. I have included a couple of videos on this adapter for you.

I have also included a link to an FAQ article on 5th wheel to gooseneck adapters for you.
