I have a curt gooseneck in the bed of my short bed truck. Can a B&W fifth wheel hitch work with this curt ball?

Sure, the B&W Companion Fifth Wheel hitches mount to your gooseneck ball. Let me know the year make model of your truck, along with bed length, for a specific recommendation.

I bought a 1998 Dodge 1 ton , with 5th wheel goose neck attached to the bed already ! But is heavily structurally connected, also below the bed of the truck, to the 2 frames! And like 1-2 ton davits or mini cranes for the back of a truck bed ! You better support it to one of the frames, or will bend the bed and tail gate!

I just bought a 5th wheel 40' trailer and it has a rotoflex hitch , I have a gooseneck hook-up in my truck with a 6.5 bed is there an adapter to go from the trailer to the truck and if so what type and how much?

If your 5th wheel trailer has a tapered nose then you might be able to use the Demco Recon Adapter # DM8550045 to work with your current gooseneck hitch. Aside from that we'll either need to figure out what gooseneck hitch is on your truck and see if there is an adapter, or you will need to swap out your pin box for one that can be used with an adapter that hooks up to the pin box.



I have 2006 F350 dually. I have a gooseneck. What kind of adapter do i need to connect 5th wheel?

The Demco Recon # DM8550045 is a great option as long as you have the long bed (to make sure your trailer doesn't contact your truck cab). For a short bed you could use the adapter # CAB-C5GX1216. If you let me know what gooseneck hitch you have I can see if any of our other adapters would work better or give you more 5th wheel hitch options.



I like the video, please I have a ram 3500 2015 that comes with gooseneck hitch turn over ball And I want to install 5th wheel to my vehicle but I might still need to pick up a goose neck trailer also , please what do I need to do thanks.

If your Ram is equipped with the Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch then a perfect solution exists with the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500 or the slider version # BWRVK3400 (if you have the short bed). The Companion will mount right to the existing gooseneck ball hole in your truck to provide you with one of the best 5th wheel hitches on the market. When it's time to tow a gooseneck trailer again (or just clear your truck bed), simply remove the Companion and the gooseneck hitch is still ready to go.
