5th Wheel Hitch and Gooseneck Adapter for 2005 Dodge Ram 2500


Do you have any 5th wheel hitches that have a pin hole distance of 20 by 21 center to center? Would the cabc5gx1216 be a good fit for a 05 dodge 2500 4 door 4x4 diesel?

It sounds like you may be looking for a 5th wheel hitch with a height of 20-21". If you're looking for something with puck spacing that matches those dimensions nothing is available. I'm also assuming you have a short bed 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 since you are looking at the offset adapter.

The Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R16 Slider # C16521 would work along with the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Dodge Ram # C16420-204. This hitch will have a height of 17-1/2" - 21-1/2" when installed.

The Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter w/ Offset - 12" to 16" Tall # CAB-C5GX1216 would be a good choice if you want to use an adapter. This adapter has a 7-1/2" offset for extra clearance on short-bed pickups.
