Will this adapter work on 2007 cheverlot crew cab 2500 short bed pickup with a BW goose neck ball and it will clear the 5th wheel rv in 90 degree turn.

The Hi-Rise hitch # 9480 will fit if your B and W hitch is the turnover ball style with a square shank. The center of the jaws will essentially be over the center of the ball hole in the truck bed. It does not offer any additional clearance. You will most likely need something with either an offset or a way to use a slider 5th wheel trailer hitch.

What I recommend is to use Curt adapter # 16310. This adapter will also fit in the square ball hole of a B and W turnover ball hitch. You can then add a slider hitch to get the clearance you need with the short bed truck. A hitch like # PS30857 is rated for 16,000 pounds and has 10 inches of travel.

I have linked video reviews of the adapter and hitch for you.
