Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Cushioned Adapter CAB-C5GX1216 Cannot Exceed a 4,000 lbs Tongue Weight


My 5th wheel is 15500gvw and 2650 tongue weight. The adaptor is good for 20,000 but only 2,000 on tongue weight. Will this adaptor handle my tongue weight? I am hauling a 06 Victory lane 36 toyhauler.

The Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Cushioned Adapter, item # CAB-C5GX1216, will now handle up to 4,000 pounds tongue weight.

If you need an adapter with more tongue weight capacity then the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, item # AM3100, would be a good choice. This is a semi permanent installation and the capacity is up to 6,000 pounds tongue weight.

Due to the weight you have, you may want to invest in a fifth wheel hitch. If you want to reply with the year, make and model of your vehicle, I will be happy to recommend some fifth wheel hitches.
