Fifth-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter

This unique coupler lets you tow your fifth-wheel trailer with your gooseneck hitch. It is air ride equipped to ensure that less stress is put on your trailer's frame than is typical with traditional king pin adapters. Simply replace your trailer's existing pin box with the Goose Box and you'll be ready to go.


Eliminate Chucking and Jarring

The Goose Box is designed to absorb road shock for a smooth, stable ride. The internal air bag can be adjusted to give you just the right amount of support, so you will lose the bounce but avoid the stiff, rigid ride that occurs when towing with an overinflated air bag. Also included in the Goose Box are dual shock absorbers, which ensure that compression of the air bag occurs in a controlled fashion. This extends the life of the air bag.


Cutaway Diagram of Reese Products Goose Box
  1. The air bag can be adjusted to provide a smooth ride for both your truck and trailer. Because it is fully enclosed, it's protected from UV exposure and shielded from road hazards.
  2. Dual shock absorbers help to reduce bounce and relieve stress on your trailer frame.
  3. The integrated pivot tube allows the Goose Box to move fore and aft, minimizing chucking.
  4. The gooseneck coupler attaches to the 2-5/16 inch ball on your gooseneck trailer hitch.

Expert Answers about Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter - Lippert 1716 - 16,000 lbs - RP94622-61301Do you have a question about this Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters?


  • Ride Quality and Safety when Using a 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter with a 32 Foot Trailer and F-350
  • The reason that ride quality suffers a bit with a gooseneck adapter like part # CAB-C5G, is because the fifth-wheel trailer pin box and framing are designed to be towed on a fifth-wheel hitch. The extra distance down to the gooseneck ball in the bed of the truck causes torque on the trailer chassis which in turn causes the pin box and trailer frame to flex, which contributes to what is know as chucking and bouncing. This issue can be worse with some trailers and hardly noticeable with others....

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Bounce When Towing with a 2002 Chevrolet 2500 HD and Gooseneck Hitch
  • Trailer bouncing and rough rides are common complaints among customers that are towing their fifth wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch because the gooseneck adapters like part # AM3100. Gooseneck adapters create extra distance between the king pin and trailer hitch and this extra distance creates torque on the trailer frame which creates the chucking and bouncing that you are referring to.

  • Recommendation for a 2011 F350 to Tow a 5th Wheel and Goose Neck Trailer
  • The best solution I can offer you that will allow you to tow either of your trailers with your 2011 Ford F350 is to get a Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate for Fifth Wheel Rails # 49080 to install in the rails of your F350 when you plan on towing your gooseneck flat bed trailer and then put your 5th wheel hitch back in your truck when you plan on towing your 2011 Keystone Fuzion.

  • Adapter for Towing a 5h Wheel Trailer with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • The use of an adapter like the Ranch Hitch # AM3100 may void the trailer warranty but you will have to call the trailer manufacturer to determine that. Some manufacturers allow the use of an adapter, some do not. As far as what the dealer said about the extra stress that is true sometimes but largely depends on several factors including the weight of the trailer and how often and long you tow the trailer. There are other ways that you can tow a 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck trailer...

  • Will the Reese Goose Box # RP94622-61301 Work with a 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with 6.6 Foot Bed
  • The Goose Box will not extend your king pin any further than the OEM Lippert 1716 pin box it replaces. To determine if it will provide enough clearance for turns, you will need to take a few measurements and make a few calculations. You will need to measure the distance between the center of the existing gooseneck ball and the rear of the truck cab. If the king pin extends past the front face of the trailer, the distance it extends should be added to the distance from the cab to the...

You would have to contact the manufacturer of the trailer frame if it is not a Lippert. The Goose Boxes are sweet items. Not only can you tow your 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch but you also get an air cushioned ride. Goose Box # RP94622 will work with Lippert...

From the center of the ball pocket forward to the front of the Goose Box it is 7-1/2 inches. The width at the front is 11-15/16 inches. From the ball pocket center back to the nearest mounting holes is 17-3/4. From the bottom of the ball pocket to the center of the lowest...

  • Concerns About Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Dodge Ram 3500 Equipped with a Goose Neck Hitch
  • There are several ways to adapt a 5th wheel trailer to enable it to be towed with a truck that has a goose neck hitch installed. The best choice for you will depend on how often you need to change between trailer types. Some of the adapters that allow this flexibility will put more stress on the trailer frame than other types. Options are still somewhat limited for newer vehicles like your 2014 Ram. A fifth wheel adapter that bolts onto the king pin, such as Convert-A-Ball # CAB-C5G...

  • Fifth Wheel King Pin to Gooseneck Hitch Adapter for 2011 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • When you get right down to it, if you are going to primarily tow a fifth wheel trailer and you have not installed a gooseneck yet, the best practice really is to use a sliding fifth wheel hitch. Reese offers a nice option, their Elite Series, part # RP30144 that would allow you to install a fifth wheel hitch using rails, part # RP30868 that mount under the truck bed. Four small flush-mounted pucks remain in the bed once the hitch is removed, allowing full bed access. Even a standard...

  • Adapter Recommendations to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch

If you have a Curt Double-Lock, Flip and Store gooseneck hitch, you could use the Curt X5, # C16210 and put a 5th wheel hitch in the rails. Or if you have a B and W square shank turnover ball hitch, use # 16310. If you do not have either of the gooseneck hitches listed above, you will need to use an adapter on the 5th wheel trailer to tow it with a gooseneck hitch. Rails cannot be installed in...

The mechanism that retains the ball in the Remov-a-Ball is not compatible with the post that the 5th wheel portion of the adapter needs to attach to. We do have some other options, though. From a ride quality standpoint, your best bet is a Reese Goose Box, which will replace your existing pin box. Two models are available for the more common...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Sidewinder Recommendation for a 2013 GMC 2500HD Towing a 2014 Keystone 3250RL

Since your trailer is a fifth wheel trailer I would recommend you go with a fifth wheel hitch in the bed of your truck and then use a Sidewinder pin box to give you the necessary clearance to make 90 degree turns. Another option would be to use a slider hitch to give you the necessary clearance, but those can be a hassle and are pretty noisy. For a hitch and rails I would recommend you get the Reese R20 5th Wheel hitch # RP30867 and...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Gooseneck Hitch and a 1999 Ford F-350
  • There is a good, better, best ladder in terms of adapters to tow a 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch. The Ranch Hitch, while being probably the best of its type, falls under the good category. What I recommend is the B&W Companion hitch # BWRVK3500 for a long bed or # BWRVK3400-5W for a short bed truck. The Companion hitches fit directly into the Turnover ball hole without the need for any other adapter. Another option, and for the absolute best in adapter technology, I recommend...

The bottom of it fits around the gooseneck ball and the top has an adapter that fits around the trailer king pin. You do not have to modify the trailer at all. I have linked a video review of the adapter for you. There is also a product called the Goose Box. There are a few different ones that fit different make and model pin boxes.

  • It is highly unlikely that you will be able to install a 5th wheel trailer hitch in your 2006 GMC Sierra as long as the gooseneck hitch is installed. The problem is that a 5th wheel hitch installation kit will require the same or some of the same mounting locations as the gooseneck hitch so they would interfere with each other. What you can do is use an adapter to fit on the 5th wheel trailer to use with the gooseneck hitch. There are a couple of different options. If you have a Lippert...

The gooseneck adapter can already place stress on the frame of the 5th wheel.

The Reese Goose Box, # RP94622-61301, is not going to provide any extra length to compensate for the longer bed on your truck. The Ranch Hitch with offset, # AM3139, may be just what you need.
