/Fifth Wheel Trailer to Gooseneck Hitch
/Bolts Over King Pin
/King Pin Adapters
Use your gooseneck hitch to tow your 5th-wheel trailer by hooking up with this adjustable coupler adapter. Poly cushions absorb shock for a smooth ride. Adjustable height fits multiple applications. 20,000-lb GTW.
Note: This adapter is not recommended for use with Reese Elite Series gooseneck trailer hitches. It is also not recommended for use with factory-installed towing prep packages from Ford, GM, Dodge, or Nissan.
Warning: Not compatible with sidewinder king pins. When used together they produce two pivoting points at both the ball and the turret which is a safety hazard. Also not compatible with any air ride 5th wheel king pin.
After backing the vehicle under the trailer, measure from the top of the ball in the truck bed to the base of the pin box on the trailer. This will indicate the height of the adapter that you need.
The included collar slides over your fifth-wheel trailer's king pin and is held in place with set screws. Additional, larger set screws that are mounted at the top of the coupler adapter then tighten onto the collar.
This trailer coupler adapter features a simple, secure latching mechanism for safe, easy hookup with the hitch ball. The convenient extension handle grabs the sliding latch so that you can easily lock or unlock the coupler from outside the truck bed. Once the coupler is engaged, hook the handle through the hole in the sliding latch's track to ensure that it remains securely coupled. For extra safety, once the coupler is latched, you can replace the handle with a padlock (sold separately) to secure the trailer to the hitch ball during towing. Use a lock while your trailer is being stored to guard against towaway theft.
Pin Box Length
Note: There are no recommended limits to the length of pin box on which the Convert-A-Ball trailer coupler can be used.

Today were going to review part number CAB-C5G. This is the Convert-A-Ball cushion fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter. It is height adjustable from 12 inches to 16 inches and it has a 20,000 pound towing capacity. This fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter will let you tow your fifth wheel trailer with your gooseneck hitch. This coupler bolts to your trailers kingpin and then itll connect to the gooseneck ball in your truck bed. On the inside they do have the polyurethane cushions which will act as shock absorbers for a smooth, safe ride.
They help reduce bounce and vibration and theyll minimize the wear and tear on both your trailer and your tow vehicle. This does have adjustable height which I can show you right here. This will slide up and down for adjustable heights which will fit many applications. It is a fail-safe kingpin adapter. It has a built in positive lock feature to secure the trailer to the hitch ball.
The steel extension handle lets you slide this bar to lock or unlock the coupler from the outside of the truck bed and itll act as a latch by keeping the adapter secure. This part is made of a durable cast steel construction. It does have a rust resistant powder coat finish. It does come with the safety chains which are included. Comes with the locking collar and again the steel extension handle.
This part is made in the USA. It does have a towing capacity of 20,000 pounds. It has a pin weight capacity of 4,000 pounds and it does fit on a 2 5/16th gooseneck hitch ball. Again the height is adjusted from 12 inches to 16 inches. It does come with a two year limited warranty.
First off I want to show you how youd actually install this onto your fifth wheel and your gooseneck. Basically you would start off with this locking collar. It has three large Allen head bolts in it and theres also three indentations. Basically what you would do is on it it says, Top front. So this is the top front right here. Then this white locator mark here is where youll line this up to the exact center on the front of your kingpin box. This would basically slide up onto your kingpin and then you would tighten these Allen head bolts down to where they will rest on the bottom lip of your trailer kingpin. Snug them up and then this would be secured on your kingpin on your fifth wheel. Then this coupler right here will basically slide up onto this collar right in here. It would slide up on here. These three jam nuts right here at the top will actually tighten down into these indentations on the locking collar and you would torque them down to hold it into place. Now on this adapter as you can see right up here it says front, right here it says front. This will basically face your truck cab. This would be pointing towards the front of your truck which would make this locking handle on the drivers side of your truck bed. With this already installed onto your fifth wheel trailer you will slide this up on to the locking collar, torque down these jam nuts right here, and that would secure it into place. Your next step would be to slide this down over the gooseneck ball in your truck bed and then you can adjust the height to where you can see. Right on the back here there are three jam nuts that will tighten down once you get your height selected. Basically this would slide up and down to get you the correct height. One of the things I just wanted to show that youll see when I slide this up too far youll see a red line become exposed. You do not want that red line showing. Thats actually a warning that you do not want to hook it up that way. Anytime you adjust your height you want to make sure that red line is covered up. That it is not showing. If you see that red showing that means you need to lower your trailer until there is no red showing before tightening any of these jam nuts. Then the other feature I wanted to show you was this right here. You slide this to open; its stamped open here, and locks here. If you slide this to open then you would slide that down onto your hitch ball when youre doing your height adjustment. This extension handle is nice to use because you can be outside the truck bed and you can use either end. You can just reach in, move it to the lock position, move it to the open position. Once you move it into the lock position its locked over the gooseneck ball then you can use this other end, the hooked end, as a positive lock feature. Basically what youd do is theres a hole right here, youd slide this hook end from the inside out and then make the extension handle go behind and then just drop this down into your truck bed. It would actually lock this latch from going over to the open position so it is a positive lock feature. Now if you do want greater security you can run a padlock through here which I sold separately and thatll give you greater security to keep this latch from moving to the open position. That should do it for review on part number CAB-C5G.
Average Customer Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (255 Customer Reviews)Use your gooseneck hitch to tow your 5th-wheel trailer by hooking up with this adjustable coupler adapter. Poly cushions absorb shock for a smooth ride. Adjustable height fits multiple applications. 20,000-lb GTW.

The Product installed with no problem. I just got back from a 900 mi. round trip to Utah. I was in elevations from 1000 ft above sea level to 9000 ft. above sea level. I It hooks up very easy and is very good compared the my old system. I would have given it a Excellent except that it (rotated) turned about 1/4 of an inch.on the king pin as you can see on the Photos. I will be drilling holes in the King Pin Extension and putting in the four bolts before I take it out again. I was suprised that I did not receive the optional bolts nor was I asked if I wanted them. .I did order on line so I accept responsibility for it. At no time did I feel any safty issues. I had replaced the suspension on my trailer with the easy ride system and combined with your Convert-A-Ball Cushioned System my wife said there was a huge emprovement and I also felt a big difference it the Truck. It is a well engineered product and my raiting will go to Excellent after I put in the four Bolts. You can send me the bolts or I will get my own. Attached are some photos of my Truck and Trailer. The Trailer is a 2000 Forrest River Sierra Sport Toy Hauler. I bought it new. 9200 Dry. (2) 6500 lb Axels 1900 lb. on the Pin (est) If Questions, Feel free to call Have a Great Day JoeB 141891

I don't often write reviews, practically never. But this one deserves one. So, I didn't buy it that you could use this adapter without bolting it to the trailer. Just a sleeve around the king pin and the hitch around the sleeve. Didn't buy it. But, they guarantee it to hold as long as you install it to their specks. So I did. Here's how the story goes. I was backing my camper into a garage and forgot to make sure the door was all the way up. You can see where this is going. I hit the door. Rolled out from under the door and discussed with myself, inspected the damage. This is not the impressive part. So distracted with what I've just done, I get everything straight and continue. Now this next part is important, I drive a dually pushing out just under 700hp. I can do doughnuts or sit and roast the tires. Not that I do, but I can. I like my stuff to last. I say that so that you don't brush off the impressive part. Once I got my camper into the garage I put my truck into first and sat there with my foot on the clutch thinking about the damage I'd just done and, absent mindedly, popped the clutch. Now granny gear has enough torque to slow the rotation of the earth, and I just unleashed it onto an unbolted hitch holding my camper above my truck. It snapped so hard that it slammed my head into my seat and broke off some small shavings in my rear end. Not my butt, the rear end of my drivetrain. But, the hitch held!!! Upon inspection nothing moved! Other than flipping my truck over, I don't know how to put anymore strain on it than that. Thank you so much for building a quality product!!! I'm sold! What just cost me a few hundred dollars in parts, broken ac and garage door, could have been thousands. Thanks again. Truly, thank you. 176431

Installation is a breeze. I'm a short but stocky guy so installing it by myself wasn't hard at all. I just lowered the trailer to where I had enough leverage to hold the adapter up and be able to tighten the bolts down with the other hand. Torqued everything down to spec and was on the road in no time. Pulled off after 50 miles and retorqued everything as any good transporter does. This is where my review gets bad. The bolts that hold the adapter to the kingpin couple failed. They crushed on the ends and damaged the threads. Keep in mind, I followed the torque specs TWICE. I didn't have the twisting issues that others have had. It took me 30 min with a pull bar and a piece of pipe to get the bolts backed off enough to get the adapter off the kingpin coupler. Today I spent 30 min working ONE bolt completely out of the adapter and this is what I found. I am in contact with etrailer to get it resolved. The bolts and the inner threads are damaged. Hopefully this is just a lemon and I will get a replacement hassle free. Other than this, this is a great design and towed well. 233183

I want to thank Etrailer for the great customer service I received. Emily H, was very helpful in the process of my purchase. The c5g _1216 converter ball adapter was a very well made and sturdy product. And will handle the 39ft toyhauler that I have it installed on. The installation was very easy and simple. So thanks again Etrailer for a great product and fast delivery, and great customer service. Walter, R 233926
I recently bought a 36ft 5th wheel toy hauler and needed a way to pull it, we didn't really want to install a 5th wheel hitch because we didn't want the extra holes in the bed of the truck so we bought this. I was nervous at first but this hitch adapter work very well. It mounted to the 5th wheel easily and sat right on the gooseneck ball that came built into our truck. It also disconnected from the truck with ease. We have left it hooked onto the camper for now for quick movement if needed. 312825

This deal that I bought.... Works.. I like this one the best. I look at the other goose neck cuppler that others were trying to sell me. I like how it was easy to just bolt it on the king pin. I own a 2500 Dodge Ram it sets high. And the travel trailer sets low, so all I did was set the springs on top of the axels. Problem solved. We went to Florida to get this travel trailer and where I live in Tennessee and the route we took home,, well we mist the one road and ended up on the dragon tail (Hy 129 ) the twisting and turning the up and down that this road has to offer. Made it to Duck Town where we pick up Hy 68 north and the twisting and turning that this road has to offer before we made it home in Madisonville Tn.. The cuppler didn't loosen up. No wiggles or wobbles. I don't know how many foot pounds of what ever to tighten them bolts to... Because I couldn't read the instructions.... The shippers didn't put the instructions in its own pack nor in a safe place in the cuppler.. The video was a god sent. And I just used cheater bar on the wrench. Problem solved. I'm gonna recheck the bolts just to be sure before we take a trip. But I'm sure there tight. And I'll send you guys a note if I mess up.. But that cuppler is on there and I gonna drill out the pin box and bolt the cuppler to the pin box just for a pice of mine.. Legrand B 288187
the hitch arrived in 3 business days as promised via UPS. It weighing over 70 pounds I expected the cardboard box to be thrashed. The box arrived in perfect shape, great job on packaging . I immediately ran out and and began installing it on my trailer. Things went terrible, I had the white line on the collar facing forward per the video and the instructions; it just wasn't lining up when I slipped the hitch up. Plus it would not go up and seat to the king pin plate. I called customer service and they were going to have a technician call me. I started taking the collar off and that's when I discovered I had installed it upside down?? I flipped it over reinstalled it and the rest of the installation went perfect as per the instructions. If I had not of made that error the whole thing would have only taken about 15 minutes. I felt kinda stupid because the collar is stamped this side up and has an arrow. None the less I called customer service back and told them of my error and cancelled the technician callback request. Great product, love the additional bed space I gained by going to the turnover ball with the etrailer adapter. 251555

We bought a 2001, 29' Keystone Montana 5th wheel,pulled by a 2008, F-450 with a gooseneck ball in the bed. I researched between the typical 5th wheel mount and the gooseneck conversion. YOUR videos and website gave me the most information, was clear even for a newbe like me and sealed the deal. The dealership that I purchased the 5th wheel from had never heard of this product and wanted to charge me about $125 installation for theirs because of the need to drill and weld. I told them about your product, gave them the You Tube and etrailer.com link. I bought yours and had it delivered to my house. The dealer was amazed at the ease of putting the unit on the 5th Wheel hitch and didn't charge me anything for the labor. I think they will be ordering product from you! Anyway, we have used it for only 2 weeks, it seems perfect in every way. Thank you so much for the ease of ordering, understandable videos, great website and order followup. The only suggestion I would have is to explain the difference in purchasing an offset unit vs. straight (like the one I bought) I was a bit jumpy about not knowing specifically which one I needed and why. Thanks for the great work, I am extremely pleased and I have been telling everyone about your company!!! 83825

I bought a newer pickup that had a ball in the bed of the pickup. I purchased your convert-a-ball adapter, and used it last weekend for the first time. I was very pleased with the ease of installing it. my wife and I did it ourselves. It worked perfect. I feel very safe pulling our heavy rv, and using the convert-a-ball. Thanks for your great invention. It was as good as advertised, and more. 84930

Researched several products similar to this and this was the best. Received it in a few days. Exactly what I needed for my camper. Installation was easy. YouTube video was very helpful. Will recommend to anybody. 35775

Good it was what I orderd just disapointed that UPS did not deliver it to my address, and not to my neighbor across the street. I was expecting the item on Friday and it arrived Thursday thanks 105988

I just wanted to tell the folks at etrailer how great of an experance I had ordering from them. I ordered a 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter. From the time the phone rang until Wayne had taken my order was less than 2 minutes. These people know their stuff and the price was great. The install was flawless, fit perfect. I was kept informed several times by e mail what the status of my order was. My order came a day early even during a holiday week. I am sure glad to have some room in my p/u bed while pulling my 5th wheel. Thanks Wayne and thanks etrailer 133617

This product was a great way to keep the bed of my truck clear by using my flip up goose neck ball to pull my new 5th wheel. I just got back from my first trip pulling through Washington, Oregon, and Idaho and it pulled smooth and great! I had conditions from very hilly two lane roads with 6% slopes to 75mph interstates. I do have to say that the included release lever (the one you can use from the side of the truck) doesnt make any difference because you still have to climb into the truck to remove the chains. Also my truck is a F250 which sits stock a little taller and in the lowest (12") position the trailer rides at an angle up to the truck bed (photo)so a good idea to measure closely before purchase. 85769
Installed adaptor 2 weeks ago to our 12000lb 37' toyhauler. You are going to need assistance as this thing is fairly heavy and awkward to handle. With the help of my 13yr old son and his friend they held it in place while I tightened the square headed bolts, adjusted to lowest position, torqued everything down, backed up the truck and hooked er up. Towing with this was sweet and once the trailer is disconnected all that remains in the truck bed is a 2 5/16" ball. I greased the ball before hooking up too. I also liked the ability to put a padlock on it in the closed position when not connected to trailer. Overall I am very pleased. Special thanks go out to Madison for emailing me the installation instructions since I either lost them or never recieved them, either way she emailed them to me very quickly. E Trailer is a great company with great staff!! Thanks and God bless. 316816

We ordered this and received it in 3 days. My husband and I installed it ourselves on a 1994 32 ft Coachman fifth wheel camper weighing 10,000 #s. The installation was just as the video showed. It is a really heavy and well made hitch. We are very pleased so far. It pulled just fine with our F350 crewcab duelly diesel. 149848

We've only used it for a short vacation so far, but it's worked great. It is not difficult to mount - just need a large crescent wrench basically and an allen wrench. And it comes off easily also. A good way to transition from a standard 5th-wheel to a gooseneck and have the bed free. Also, a gooseneck has the advantage of allowing more lateral twist in parking, which we need where we live, with a steep road and sharp curving driveway. The standard 5th wheel hitch was placing too much strain on our pin and the beams it's welded to, and this gooseneck solves the problem, without having to remove the 5th wheel pin. We can interchange in just a matter of about 30 minutes and have either a gooseneck or a 5th wheel depending on what we prefer. We have it on the shortest length possible, and it's still a little higher than ideal, but not bad. 256890

Great web site good information in the video. Halve the price of other products of its type. easy to install. ordered an had it in two days. Can't wait to get it out on the road with it. That's for a great product. 123122

I received your product and installed it on my trailer. I was impressed with the construction and felt confident it would do the job. However, I was not impressed by the square head bolt design. For one thing, you cannot just go to Home Depot, Sears, or Harbor Freight and buy a socket to fit the square head bolt. I could find a socket, but it would have to be ordered on line and I couldn't wait. Especially if you require the bolt to be torqued. I ended up replacing the bolts with regular hex head bolts. I am assuming your square head bolts are a grade 5. If they are not, I would hope you let me know before I start towing my trailer. My suggestion is to either replace your bolts with hex head bolts, or include a socket that fits your square head bolt. 318524

What an incredibly efficient and easy adapter to install! Even the shop that installed it wanted to know where I got it from because it was much easier to install than their own. Of course, I told them! Thanks so much e-trailer! 129810

Really happy with my purchase i made and a good investment. I recieved the fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter on time and next day i installed it on my fifth wheel trailer and it was very easy to do it. Instructions were plain and simple. If you dont have a buddy to help hold the adapter for you, i suggest you use a jack with a short 2x6 board to raise it in to position and begin tightneing the bolts. You do this by backing up your truck and you set the jack on the bed. I had no help so i worked with what i had... After installing it, and re inspecting everything, i took the trailer for a test drive on the dirt road and then on the paved road and it worked grea. Smooth ride, and very simple to lock and un lock the adapter from the ball. 168319
by: Rick Truelove07/11/2013
Set up was as simple as advertised. I was able to do it by myself. Only problem I had is the new 2013 Ram 3500's, the 5th Wheel/Gooseneck factory pre-installed tow package the safety chains are too short. I will have to buy some new chains to fit. I have not towed with it yet, but will post another review after I do. 89036
by: Randy S.01/06/2017
When the package arrived, I set to opening it, (very well packed). Everything that I ordered was there. Got the Gooseneck adapter figured out and got the kingpin collar installed. After I moved the truck so that I could place the adapter under the fifth wheel assembly the set up was very simple. Setting up the ball and the adapter took me about 1.5 hours to complete. Very good equipment. Would recommend to anyone that wanted to have the versatility in towing options. Sorry, no photos. The reason I went this way was due to the cost of a fifth wheel hitch for the 2016 Ram 3500/ with the pucks per-set in the bed and on the frame this worked out to be a little less expensive to do. 333129
I bought this hitch for my fifth wheel travel trailer. My wife and I did the installation in about 45 minutes. The adapted hitch works great. I pull the trailer with a 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab, so the short bed was a concern when making tight turns and hitting truck cab. I bought the B&W 4" offset hitch, and it works great. The trailer pulls very well, and I haven't had any turning issues. I've pulled the trailer almost 3,000 miles, and the hitch hasn't given me any trouble. I torqued all the bolts as recommended during installation. I check them periodically, and they are still tight. This is a great hitch. 249584

Ordered this prior to the arrival of my new Eagle RKS-313. The CAB-C5G was easy to install on the trailer, instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. One season under my belt with a Fifth Wheel, and it's been a Great one. Connect & disconnect are smooth and quick. With the hidden Goose in my Ram 3500, i have ample room for necessities to have a great week/weekend of camping. Very happy with my CAB-C5G!! 245489

I did receive my package today! Installed and ready for the weekend! Thanks so much for shipping it so soon after it was ordered! You guys at etrailer made my wife's Mothers Day alot more special! Thanks again! 130041
The gooseneck adapter was very easy to install and works and hauls well. I prefer to haul my fifth wheel with this adapter vs. a fifth wheel plate so I have less holes in my bed and my bed is flat. I have noticed my 2016 Chevy 2500HD rides rougher when hauling. I would recommend this product to someone that wants a cleaner bed and does not want to keep moving their fifth wheel plate in and out. 276832
by: Dallas M10/05/2016
I found the installation to be simple, straight forward and easy. I did this all by myself, but with an extra set of hands it would have been easier on me. I mounted this on a 27FT Laradeo which is going to be pulled by my Dodge Diesel Truck that has a flat bed. The Covert A Ball is a better built Hitch than other hitch adapters that I looked at. I am glad I made the decision I made, purchasing this from e-trailer. I live way out in Idaho and I would like to compliment e-trailer on the incredible fast service. I received my hitch several days faster than expected. Thank You! 303633

Just what the Dr. ordered! Great service from etrailer. Ordered quicker ground shipping. Was able to track order easily. The instructions are clear, easy. All around I haven't had such a good experience dealing with a company in quite some time! I hope to do business with etrailer again soon. Can't wait to hook up and go with my 40' toy hauler and my new F350. 11576
by: S. Fuller08/12/2013
This adapter was very easy to install. Was able to do it by myself in less than 30 minutes. Even thought you don't have to bolt this adapter to the hitch plate, the instruction say that a bolt up kit is available and free of charge. I would recommend this product. Also shipping from etrailer was very quick, and the price was right after shopping around. 94543
by: DWAYNE SMITH01/08/2015
I AM VERRY HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT. DANA help me out very much with my order. This is my second hitch, i let the first one go with the old camper. only because i hated to see the new owner weld the cheap junk he brong over for his truck, also it didnt have a cushion. if you dont get the cushion your camper will beat you to death. i also love the idea that i can snap this on in a few min and go. i did drill and bolt my last one after a while only for extra security, so to say i will do this one also. (the biggest thing is i cant beleve this is so cheap) 168154

I ordered CAB-C5G hitch adapter on Sunday and was surprised that some one answered the phone when I called. I received the CAB-C5G adapter hitch on Wednesday and was again surprised but happy to get it that fast! It took very little time to install it on my 30 foot Puma Toy Hauler and it pulls great! I had bought a weld on hitch for another camper a few years ago and left it on the camper when I sold it. I can now keep my hitch adapter when and if I trade this camper for another one. I use the same truck for all my trailers and it's a gooseneck ball. 153635
bolted on really easy and fast and you can switch back to a 5th wheel setup in 10minutes , you don't have to drill into your kingpin box witch every other adapter I looked at you had to do its really safe I work the oilfeilds I towed my camper 100 miles when I first got it most of it old log roads and it did great the camper dosnt wobble at all witch surprised me I thought it would compared to a 5th wheel set up, as always etrailer shipped it very fast and it was perfict when it arrived I've never had trouble with etrailer 114116
by: Kyle R.07/24/2015
Easy installation. Have only used it once so far to go about 400 miles rount trip up and down mountains and in some sand dunes. Didn't have any issues at all but I did notice some "jerking" when your truck is shifting gears. I have a 30ft toy hauler and it was full with toys so I just attributed it to the weight of the trailer pushing me forward while the truck was shifting and then the truck tugging back right after it shifts. It's very subtle but was enough for me to notice. Not sure if this is normal or just my setup... 214105

Great service and quick delivery! Arrived on my porch three days after ordering. Needed to convert a 5th wheel camper to a gooseneck hitch, since we regularly haul a horse trailer. Installation took about 1/2 an hour and directions were clear and concise. Thanks for a quality product. Will highly recommend your site! 38916
by: Jerry G07/04/2016
This is a great product, and I have been using this product for the last 4 years. It was easy to install, and this is a high quality product! The etrailer website was very informative, and the installation videos were very helpful. I have pulled my 5th wheel trailer on highways and dirt roads with no issues. The ride is smooth and safe. This product performs as advertised, and I like the adjustable height. The gooseneck connection frees up space in the bed of my truck. I highly recommend this product! 267919
by: Todd H.05/23/2016
I submitted my order on the weekend, it shipped out monday and I received it in a couple days, free shipping and it was fast! Easy to install instructions and the convert a ball adapter works great. The only negative comment is that I called on Monday morning after I ordered it to see when it would ship, the person I talked to said it would be a couple days since I ordered it online. I didn't understand why buying online would hold up shipping, but they were wrong anyway because it shipped that day. 251189

Well, I haven't installed it yet, but I can say that the customer service was excellent. I called in to ask a few questions that I was unclear on. Deborah H. answered all the questions I had, and then placed my order. She then emailed me directly to let me know when it had shipped, and even emailed me to let me know it arrived at my house. Customer service like that is hard to come by these days. I hope the performance of the unit is as good as the customer service. I should know soon! Thanks 208132

Great product and fantastic customer service. Installed in a light rain and was very quick and easy. Certainly does everything advertised. I find connecting more difficult than the fifth wheel. I also find that there is much more truck to trailer flex when I go off road. Some contact has happened. Pulling does not seem any different. I will be going back to the B&W companion for my personal use but that in not a reflection of this product - Four stars Jerry 327695
This was a clean and simple design that is easy to install. The video and instruction sheet made the install easy. Once installed, the unit made hook up and towing easy. The frustrating part about this is the use of square head bolts. They require the use of a crowfoot wrench to adapt to a torque wrench. These are not easy to find, and they are relatively expensive. Manufacture the bolts with hex heads instead so that a standard 1" socket can be used. 128798

Works just like described,great service when ordering.Out of the box read over the direction and bolted right on first time.I pulled new trailer about 300 miles home did stop however around ever 100 miles and checked the tork of the bolts,none had loosened.Would recommend this adapter for anyone wanting to pull a fifth wheel with a goose neck ball.The folks at etrailer were GREAT,it's nice to be able to talk to a real person when ordering.Thanks Again. 307742

So far so good. Got the adapter as scheduled and installed it in about 30 minutes with the help of a friend and a pipe jackstand (just so I didn't have to hold it up the whole time. Haven't had a chance to road test it just yet, but it appears to be an extremely well built solution to not having the bed of my pickup full of a fifth wheel hitch. I'll try to update after I pull with it for a few hundred miles. 161684

Very simple I took everything out of the box all in great shape. My daughter has a 26 ft. trailer, This will make it easy without installing a hitch in the bed of her pickup. Tracking of the product was great arrived in less than a week on the day UPS said it would. We have not installed the hitch yet as the trailer is in Arizona. I will send a picture when it is done.

Installed goose-neck adapter on my Nuwa 37' camper a year ago. Pulled camper roughly 2500 miles with it and love it. Seems to be quieter and smoother. Pull with 3500 Ram dually. Was very easy to install and no problems getting hooked up. Love having full access to truck bed after setting up camper at site. Would recommend this to anyone that wants the freedom of access to truck bed. 313460

The adapter was easy to install (probably about a half hour with the help of a floor jack to hold it up) After I installed it I pulled the trailer 15 mi or so and it pulled great. Sure beat having to install the rails for the fifth wheel hitch when you already have a goose neck hitch installed. Would have been just too much junk in the truck bed. Great product and built real well. 223729
Easy enough to install if you have a torque wrench prior to application. A gooseneck hitch is less expensive than a sliding fifth wheel hitch. This option saved us $300 because we converted our fifth wheel (using the convert-a-ball) to a gooseneck adapter. Doing this also opened up other possibilities - since I am not aware of any utility trailers with a fifth wheel adapter. 230081

I just bought a 30ft 5th wheel. I went to pick it up and It took more time to lift the jacks on the trailer than it did to install the gooseneck adapter. It pulled as good as any gooseneck trailer I have pulled. It only required an allen wrench and a cresent wrench to install. The instructions were simple and easy to follow. I could not be more happy with this product. 47047

I ordered this product online and received excellent service, in a very timely fashion. The staff at e-trailer are 2nd to none and very professional with their business and service to their clients. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of any product that they carry and distribute. I would and will use them again in the future as the need will surely arise. 120306

Absolutely outstanding product! I'll admit I was a little worried about using this type of adapter at first but my worried eased a bit when I saw how heavy-duty it was. My fears are completely gone now that I've towed my trailer over 400 miles on highways and off road through the mountains. It makes for a VERY solid, comfortable tow and I recommend it wholeheartedly. 142500

A great product,Install was fairly easy. However, I don't like the square bolts that secure the housing to the king pin collar. Couldn't get a 6 point 15/16 socket to work,but the 12 worked fine. Overall, I would recommend this to a friend. I haven't pulled my 33 1/2' Nu-wa Hitchhiker yet, so maybe I will write another review after I hit the trail. Happy Hookin!!! 176347
