I spoke with Lippert and was able to determine that your current pin box has a 1621 bolt pattern with a 15.5K weight capacity, thanks to the numbers you provided. The Reese Goose Box # RP94720 you were looking at is a compatible fit for your bolt pattern but I recommend going with the Reese Goose Box # RP94716 instead to stay closer to your trailer's GVWR for a smoother ride. The higher the weight capacity the stiffer it will be to offset the weight so it's typically best to stick around the GVWR of your trailer.

Since you're switching from a fifth wheel to a Goose Box you'll also need some safety chains to complete your hookup. You can use the Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit with Clevis Hooks # 49150. These chains will mount to your Goose Box, pictured below, and then attach to the safety chain U-bolts of your gooseneck hitch with the clevis hooks.
