How Much Does the Gen-Y and Reese Goose Box Weigh?


Which of these goose box is the lightest, would purchase the lighter one to maximize my trucks payload capacity. Gen-Y GH-8055AL versus Reese 94716 goose box And do i need the shim plates for either one. I have included a picture of my pin box model which is on the OEM of a Keystone Fuzion 379 witch as a hitch weigh of 3155 lbs Thanks!

Your picture didn't come through so I can't tell you if you need shim plates but I can confirm that both the Gen-Y Hitch Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Pin Box item # GY38FR and the Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter item # RP94716 fit the 1621 pinbox. So if your Keystone Fuzion 379 has a 1621 pinbox either of this goose boxes will work.

The Gen-Y item # GY38FR weighs 162 lbs.

The Reese Goose Box item # RP94716 weighs 170 lbs.

I recommend going with the Reese over the Gen-Y if your Keystone still has a chassis warranty. The Reese goose box is the only one that doesn't void that warranty.

If you do go with the Gen-y and need the shims you will want the 1/4" Filler Shims for Gen-Y Hitch Executive Fifth Wheel Pin Boxes item # GY76FR.

Neither of these goose boxes come with safety chains so don't forget the Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit with Clevis Hooks - 44" Long - 16,000 lbs - Qty 2 item # 49150.
