Converting 5TH Wheel Pin Box On a 2006 Gulfstream Prairie Schooner To Gooseneck Towing

Question:

I have a 06 Gulfstream Prairie Schooner with a Venture Technologies frame - Serial #052423 and Part # CJ 135 17, GVRW - 17000 lbs. Is there a Reese Goosebox that would be compatible with this frame? Pictures attached Thanks

Expert Reply:

I recommend using a Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5G or # CAB-C5GX1216 with your 2006 Gulfstream Prairie Schooner, as there are no Reese Goosebox adapters that will bolt in place of your Venture pin box.

The Convert-A-Ball adapters will mount to your current pin box and will allow you to adjust the height between 12" and 16" tall for connecting to your gooseneck ball. These have a built in polyurethane cushion to help absorb trailer shock and vibration from being transferred to your truck. The Adapter # CAB-C5G is for long bed trucks that have sufficient clearance when maneuvering. The Adapter # CAB-C5GX1216 has a 7-1/2" offset which is designed to add the additional clearance short bed trucks need to still make a full jackknife turn with their truck. The maximum capacities for these are 20,000lbs trailer capacity and 4,000lb tongue weight capacity.
