2000 Forest River Sierra Sport


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

How do you plan on installing the 4 additional bolts?

comment by: Carlos G - 07/27/2014

In the installation instructions Convert-A-Ball discusses the optional installation of additional bolts. However, these bolts are available only for the customer to contact the manfucturer, and are not sold individually. To gain access this is usually done by disassembling the pin box, or by drilling access holes in the plate, but this all depends on the configuration of your pin box, and if this adapter is intended to be a temporary or a permanent solution.

I did as I said I would do and I drilled four hole in the pin box and installed four bolts. I feel much more confident in the system. I am very happy with it at this time. To drill the holes I removed the pin box and used the adapter for a pattern, I then drilled the holes by hand. 1/2 in Drill

Raymond L.: My Ram is a 3500 4X4 SRW It has the 8Ft bed. I pulled the same Toy Hauler with two different Quad Cab PUs over the years with 6-12 ft. beds. One 2WD and one 4X4 before this one. I ordered this P/U as a Std. Cab. It is set up like a Laramie inside. towing I get 10-13 MPG. Empty 22 MPG It tows at any speed I want in the Mountains.

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

Ram 2500


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

Keystone Montana


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

Youd only need the offset if your truck was a short bed.

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 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

what is distance from rear bumper and lower front of fifth wheel. also it looks like you ,are at a skew with your adapter, is that with all the weight lowered on to the truck. if not how well does it tow like that.

The space between is about 2-1/2 feet. Plenty of room. That is how my hitch sets fully, its mostly due to me running 315s on my tires. But Ive pulled it all around the south and even up to the Great Lakes. Never once had a problem

it has worked wonderful for us. We got a pickup that can now haul both the camper and the boat So the hitch will be a great asset.It was easy to install and fit live a glove.Only downfall was UPS delivered it to our neighbors house and it took both of us to carry it to my house.

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

Ford F-250


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

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

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

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

Rick TDoes your RV or trailer ride level with the roadway? Are the rims on your rig 18?Im concerned about the adapter making the RV ride too high in the front. Dave

comment by: Dave H - 10/09/2013

Remember this adapter is adjustable, with a range of 12-16 inches. To determine if it will work for your right you can take a quick measurement. On a flat surface, park the 5th Wheel trailer and use the landing gear to get it level. Back the truck under it and measure from the top of the ball to the pin box base, the flat surface where the king pin is welded to. As long as that measurement falls within that range, you can setup the adapter to work with your rig.

Little late to comment but, for new users as well as 2013 Ram owners, I have a 2013 Ram dually with the adapter that I hook to a Keystone Montana and the chains are not too short. In fact, I have enough extra chain that I have to loop them through.

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

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

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

I have a 2014 5th wheel wanting to change to gooseneck, do allmost need to be also bolted down, all seem to have predrilled holes at the neck to do so. The king pin box is a Lippert 1621. What say you. Thanks

So long as the system is installed properly, the collar that slides over the pin and the adapater itself will not separate from the pin. The aditional bolt kit is not needed, but can be added if desired. The instructions included with the adapter have information on how to get the bolt kit.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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. Thanks Frank 272959

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

I ordered this conversion kit for our camper on line. It was shipped the day I ordered it, it arrived in three days complete and in good order. My son and I installed it, it only took us twenty minutes. Haven't pulled the camper yet. It looks great and feels real solid. This will give us flexability as to who can pull the camper. Thanks for the great service. 267002

Great product! Install was quick and easy. Despite the weight I was able to install by myself in less than 20min. The adjustment is a nice feature as well. 106860

Having a gooseneck hitch in my truck, I didn't want to go through the trouble of adding a fifth wheel hitch so I ordered this adaptor. This was just what I needed. I also added a camera to help me to hook up. My wife no longer has to help me do this aND she is happy as it was a very unpleasant task for her. Now we are both happy! So glad I bought this! 239667

Keystone Montana


We purchased a 5th Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter. We had a Montana 5th wheel camper that needed moving, but our truck was fitted for hauling gooseneck style trailers. It worked like a charm. The installation of the adapter was quick and easy with the easy-to-follow directions. No problems! We would definitely recommend this product to everyone. 232094

This adapter is exactly as described. It was very easy to install and after one year of use there have been no issues at all. I chose to convert my fifth wheel to a goosneck because I have a bad back and can not lift more than 20 pounds. Therefore a removable fifth wheel plate is not an option for me. I highly recommend this product!!! 278235

Shipped and received in a very short of time, put in on the trailer after I bought a torque wrench, which I needed any way, hooked it up to the truck and it fell right in place after a few attempts aligning it up, have a tool box in my line of sight, have not towed with it yet, seeing how it's winter here, but don't foresee any problems. 171421

We got this so we could switch it back and forth with two trucks with gooseneck because we use with gooseneck horse trailers also. It was rather easy to install as long as you have the right tools. We have already used it on the 5th wheel, pull the trailer 3 hours one way and back; it worked fine and seems secure. Just as advertised. 254168

I installed the convert a ball on my fifth wheel trailer, now I have a back and forth motion as I pull it, any suggestions.. 49587


Comments

I have the same problem. Instructions do not say to drill and tap, but I an considering trying this to see if it stabilizes the ride. Any other suggestions?

It will take some extra work, but it may be worth removing the coupler and making sure the collar is installed properly and then re-install the coupler. If that does not resolve the issue, I would contact Convert-A-Ball.

I get that also usually on bumps.

Again, removing and verifying the collar install or re-installing it my help. Beyond that, a call to Convert-A-Ball may be in order.

Bought this item a year ago. Installation was very easy. It works like a charm! I have a small fifth wheel so when I bought a different truck that had the gooseneck set up in it I purchased this adapter so I would not have to put my fifth wheel set up back in which gave me a clean truck bed, no rails:) 284225

Do you have a question about this Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters?


  • Comparison of Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Towing
  • Gooseneck trailers are primarily commercially used, while 5th Wheels are primarily used recreationally. A fifth wheel will generally have a smoother ride, which can be further improved by upgrading to an air-ride pin box which helps isolate road shock from the tow vehicle. Gooseneck hitches are typically rated up to 30K, but that capacity will be limited by the capacity of the install bracketry or by the towing capacity of the vehicle, whichever is less. Fifth wheel hitches are available...

  • Overview of the Different Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Adapters Available
  • The fifth wheel to gooseneck adapters like part # CAB-C5G attach to the trailer pin box and then basically add a gooseneck hitch tube to the bottom of the pin box plate of the trailer. This is probably the most popular adapter we have due to it's simple design and effective ness. The best adapter is the Goose Box style that replaces the pin box of the trailer and provides a gooseneck hitch. The downside is the higher price and limited applications. Goose Box # RP94622 will fit Lippert...

  • Is there a Difference Between Part Numbers CAB-C5G and C5G1216
  • There is not difference actually. The part # CAB-C5G is the part number we use here at etrailer for the Convert-A-Ball Adjustable Fifth-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter. The part number that Convert-A-Ball uses is C5G1216. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Is a Gooseneck or Fifth Wheel Towing Setup Smoother Riding
  • I don't agree with a fifth wheel setup being smoother riding than a gooseneck unless you start using cushioned pin boxes/hitches. Fifth wheel setups have a lot more areas for movement so they can "chuck" much easier. There are advantages to both setups but the biggest difference between the two is that for short bed trucks there are slider hitches that can be used with fifth wheel setups to give clearance but for goosenecks there isn't that option. However, since goosenecks trailers...
