Demco Gooseneck Hitch - Gooseneck for Fifth Wheel Rails - DM5992 Review


Jeff: Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at the Demco SL Series Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Adapter for Fifth Wheel Rail. Has a 25,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this adapter is designed to mount into your Demco SL Series Fifth Wheel Base Rails. So, that you can pull a gooseneck trailer with your truck using those fifth wheel base rails. Again, this is designed to fit the Demco SL Series Fifth Wheel above bed base rails, which we do sell separately.

They're part number DM 6012. Now this part is constructed of a nice sturdy steel, does resist corrosion with the black powder coat finish on it. And it does easily install and remove from your truck bed just by pulling these clips and these integrated pins. It'll remove or install it onto your vehicle. Want to zoom in, just to show you what we're talking about.So, if you look at the side here.

Right now, it's in the locked position. So if you want to remove it from the vehicle, you just pull the clip out, just like that. Lift up on your spring loaded pin, twist it 90 degrees, and it'll hold it in the open position. You'll do the same on this corner, and then on these corners also. So in all four corners, you'll raise that up.

That'll allow you to remove it from the SL bed rails in your vehicle. And then when you go to install this, just line this up over the holes in the base rails with the pin here. Once they're lined up, just twist it. And it'll automatically spring down into the hole. And then to hold it into place, take your clip slide it into the pin there, and that'll lock it into place.

And again, you'll do that on all four corners. So it makes it very simple to install and remove from your vehicle.Now, this will include everything shown here on the table. Now for this video, I've installed the side plates to the center inaudible 00:01:43 to show you what it all looks like together. But what you'll get is this gooseneck center assembly. It includes the two and five 16 diameter gooseneck ball. And these integrated safety chain loops, also you'll get these two spring pin side plates with the hardware to bolt them to the center assembly. And it also comes with these four eighth inch thick spacers. And that's used to help align these pin plates with your above bed rails. They'll go between when you go to install the pin plate to the center assembly. The space you'll go between, it'll help you to align it up.It does come with a nice set of instructions. That'll describe all that. This part is made in the USA. Few specs on this again, the gross towing weight capacity is 25,000 pounds. Now to give you a few measurements, we'll measure the width from this end, all the way to this end. On the mounting plate. So if we go end to end is going to be right at 31 and a half inches. And then if we measure the pin center to center across is going to be right at 30 inches. And then if we'll do the same front to back. Overall, from this end to this end. We right at 22 inches. And the pin center to center, front to back right at 18 inches. But that should do it for the review on this Demco SL Series Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Adapter for Fifth Wheel Rails with a 25,000 pound weight capacity.
