Is There A Way To Tow A 5th Wheel With The Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Hitch?


Im looking to purchase a new Fithwheel Hitch and would like to know which ones work with the Draw tite Gooseneck 6300. I have a 8ft bed

For your 2005 Ford F-350 with the Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 6300, your options will be limited. As far as a 5th wheel hitch being compatible with your current system, that isn't going to be an option as there are none available.

What you can do, is use the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-To-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5GX1216
which will lock overtop of the kingpin on your 5th wheel, and hook-up to your existing gooseneck ball.

I should note also, that some manufacturers won't allow this adapter without voiding a warranty, so you will want to check with your trailer manufacturer.

You can also change out your pin box with the Reese Goose Box 5th Wheel To Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler # RP94716. This will replace your entire pin box with a pin box that has an integrated gooseneck coupler so there would be no need for an adapter. These are pin box specific, so you'll want to verify which pin box you have first by looking for a manufacturer sticker on the pin box.

This pin box for instance, will replace the Lippert 0719,1621,1621HD, and Fabex PB-600 Series pin boxes.
