Today we're going to review part number HT31368, this is the Husky Fixed Ball Platform Gooseneck Hitch, for the fifth-wheel rails. It has a 25,000 lbs capacity, and the part that we'll be demonstrating today is this part right here. The platform that's made to fit into the rails. For demonstration purposes, I do have a stand here with a set of above-bed fixed rails attached to it. These would be the rails like would be in your truckbed. Basically, this platform plate with this 2-5/16ths diameter ball will sit in the slots in these above-bed rails to allow you to tow a gooseneck trailer. These will easily mount to the above-bed rails that we sell separately.
The standard rails it fits, would be the Curt, the Draw-Tite, the Hidden Hitch, the Reese, the Valley and the Husky brand rails. It's a very easy installation and removal, using these pins and clips and the other mounting hardware is all included. Basically this will drop in, you could use the pins to lock into place, when you're done towing you can remove the pins, remove the plate and then you'll still have full access to your truck bed when it is removed. This part is a durable powder-coat black paint finish. If you'll notice these holes here right in the plate, these can be used as the safety chain attachments for your trailer. Now just a note, there are some states that do require the safety chains of your trailer to be attached to a separate connection point than to the hitch - so you do want to check your local laws to see if that pertains to you. This does have a 2-5/16ths ball diameter, and again the gross towing weight capacity is 25,000 lbs, the tongue weight capacity on this platform is 6250 lbs. The measurement on this plate, the overall width, 13 , overall length is 24 inches.
The measurements between these tabs, center to center is going to be 10 inches, which is usually a standard measurement. Then from the front tab to the back tab, center to center is 22 inches again, which is a standard measurement, so it will fit all those rails I mentioned earlier. One other thing I do want to show you also if you look at this - it weighs about 30 lbs - but if you look at that ball, this is an offset platform, and the reason they say that is, if you look at the ball it's about 3 inches from the center offset. The reason they do that is if you're going to use it for, for instance if I'm the cab up here and back here is the tailgate. So if you're going to put the ball closer to the cab - in the case of maybe a long-bed truck - you can drop it so that it's positioned like this, drop it right into the tabs. Now if there's a case where you have a short-bed truck and you want gain some clearance from that cab, you can actually rotate this plate, just like that, and as you notice the ball is now moved closer to the tailgate.
Then you can just drop it into the tabs, just like that, take your pin, run your pin through the bottom, just like that. Then put your clip right on the end in all four places and it would lock it into place. Simple as that. That should do it for the review on part number, HT31368, Husky Fixed Ball Platform Gooseneck Hitch, for the fifth-wheel rails. .

Gooseneck Hitch Plate fit the mounting rails I had installed for my fifth wheel hitch perfectly. Within 10 minutes or less I can have my fifth wheel hitch removed and the gooseneck plate installed with the same mounting pins. Gooseneck Hitch Plate also has ball unit mounted off center of the plate so it can be used on a short or long bed truck. Nice unit and it has served me well. 274137

Bought truck used and it had valley rails and was going to take rails off to put gooseneck hitch in bed. Friend told me e trailer had husky hitch that would fit into rails. After seeing picture of hitch on web I was a bit skeptical but ordered it. Got it in 3 days later and fit perfect and looks well built. Saved me a lot of $ from having to installing a hide away hitch !!! 175688

Product is great. Easy to install and perfect for the truck. Be careful with the trailer you purchase. Recommend a V front otherwise you need to buy an offset hitch for your trailer to prevent breaking out your rear window. This is a problem with all short bed trucks. Luckily the company I purchased my goodsensck from advised me in advance and I have had no issues. 336501
I was shocked at how fast I received my hitch. I ordered late one afternoon and it was here 48 hours later. The hitch popped right into the rails that are for my Reese fifth wheel hitch. No shipping charge and a good price after looking at several sites for the same product. Well Pleased. 168549

this hitch fit perfectly into my fifth wheel rails and gives me the use of more types of trailers. This was installed on a 2004 GMC Serria 2500hd Duramax. 221762
