Don't say goodbye to your truck bed. Instead, say hello to the Ranch Hitch fifth-wheel-to-gooseneck coupler adapter. It offers 24,000 lbs towing capacity with 3" vertical adjustment for towing a fifth-wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch.
V-19 Certified for safety and featuring exceptional strength and versatility, this universal adapter converts a fifth-wheel king pin to a gooseneck coupler. This allows you to tow your fifth-wheel trailer without a bulky fifth-wheel hitch. The Ranch Hitch from Andersen Manufacturing is easy to install, even for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer.
You can perform these steps to determine if the adapter will work for your fifth-wheel trailer.
Five or six inches of clearance between the overhang of the trailer and siderails of your truck is necessary for safe operation.
Measuring for Pin Box Length
The Ranch Hitch adapter is designed for trailers with a standard or extended pin box up to 24" long (measured diagonally). To find this dimension, you should measure from the centerline of the bottom of the king pin into the back of the pin box as far as you can reach. You may not be able to reach the very back of the pin box itself because the top of it may extend into the trailer. In this case measure to where the pin box disappears into the trailer.

Seems to be a very well built product. Good price and shipped fast. Fairly simple to install, I recommend having a friend or two around to help tighten everything down. Also I preferred to bolt rather than weld ( unless you have a closed off pin box), you never know when you may need to go back to fifth wheel in a hurry.90774

I recieved your shipment in seven days (FREE) was able to install it myself in about 2 hours with help to lift the 5th wheel down to floor level to drill six holes mounted the spacers as per instructions printed out. put the goose neck back in place and the (easy) job was done !78770
Installed in about ten minutes, ( I used a bearing puller to seat the bushings ) five minutes to tack weld it into place and done. Pulls better than a fifth wheel hitch IMO. Seems to be made very well. Took two days for deliver. Very satisfied66241

Product shipped/arrived timely from eTrailer; installation instructions provided by Anderson Manuf are very clear/easy to follow. Hitch is very easy to install. Attached to 30' fifth wheel, 11,000lbs tow weight and immediately pulled the trailer thru steep hill country without any hesitation. Pulling cattle trailers/heavy hay trailers, i know heavy duty hitches when i see them and this is a great product; HIGHLY recommended. Remote latching mechanism is a great feature; it too is very solid/secure11335

A friend and I installed the gooseneck adaptor with no trouble at all. The first time I pulled my trailer, I didn't think it was behind me. It made the pull so easy. Thanx so much.....96509

Really like the cable to release the lock. Would like see the set bots to be a hex head to make it easier to torque down properly. 61041
