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.

  • Which Reese Goose Box Works In Place Of An LCI Item Number 699766
    Thanks for the photo. I called Lippert and used the 699766 number from this and was able to determine that you have a Lippert 1116 pin box on your trailer. Therefore, if you are looking for a Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter then you will need part # RP94716-61301.

    Yes, the Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter part #RP94716-61301 will work with any brand of gooseneck hitch as long as they have a 2-5/16" hitch ball like the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNRK1057.

  • Will Reese Goose Box Resolve Severe Chucking When Towing Fifth Wheel
    If you are experience excessive chucking the Reese Goose Box # RP94716-61301 is a great option because it has both an air bag and shock absorbers and is designed to heavily reduce the amount of back and forth shock (chucking) as well as up and down shock you are currently experiencing. It also completely removes one of the other factors that could be coming into play, which is a hitch with a loose jaw system or a worn-down king pin. Either (or both) of these things could be a factor...

  • Where do Safety Chains Attach to Reese Goose Box
    I attached a picture that shows where the lugs are on the bottom of a Reese Goose Box like the part # RP94716-61301 to attach safety chains like the kit part # 49150. If yours does not have the threaded gussets for the hardware to attach to could you send me a picture of what you do have there so I could see what Reese recommends?

  • Chucking with Reese Goose Box Pin Box
    Some chucking when towing a gooseneck is to be expected. Especially on starts and stops. However, if it's excessive you could have something else going on. Try adjusting the air bag in the Goose Box. You may have to try different amounts of air to find the correct ride. If you've had the Goose Box for awhile and just started to experience a larger amount of chucking you should inspect the air bag and make sure it isn't damaged.

  • Determining Pin Box Number on Sandpiper 5th Wheel Trailer for Reese Goose Box
    In order to determine what type of pin box you have on your Sandpiper 5th Wheel Trailer, you will need to locate the part number of the pin box. This number is usually located somewhere on the pin box itself, either on a sticker or stamped into the king pin. If you are unable to find this information, you can also contact the trailer manufacturer with your VIN and they should be able to provide you with this. If you still have trouble verifying the model, there are a series of measurements...

  • Is there a Reese Goose Box that Will Replace a Mor/Ryde RPB72-770 Pin Box
    There is a Goose Box that will fit your Mor/Ryde RPB72-770 pin box. This pin box has the same mounting pattern and other key dimensions as the Lippert 1716 pin box. The one Goose Box that fits is # RP94716-61301 but you will be limited to 16,000 pounds gross trailer weight. Since the 5th wheel trailer has a gross weight rating of 15,000 pounds this Goose Box will work great for your needs.

    Thanks for the photos of your trailer pin box. That really helps when trying to find the right parts. With the dimensions you provided, it looks like you have a Lippert pin box on your trailer. Using an adapter like you have to attach to your gooseneck will increase the jarring and chucking and can make the ride uncomfortable. I have a solution for you.

  • Does the Reese Goose Box Provide More Clearance for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with Short Bed Truck
    The Reese Goose Box, # RP94716-61301, does not offer additional clearance for short bed trucks above what the stock pin box would offer. To get extra clearance and to keep the Goose Box you would need to use an offset gooseneck ball, if available for the gooseneck trailer hitch you have. If you can tell me the make and model of the gooseneck hitch I can determine if we have an offset ball. The other option would be to put the stock pin box on the trailer and use the Andersen Ranch...

  • Will the Reese Goose Box Adapter Fit a 5th Wheel Trailer with Mor-Ryde RPB72-1116 Pin Box
    If the measurements on your Mor-Ryde RPB72-1116 pin box are the same as the Lippert 1116, see link to the right, then you will be able to use Reese Goose Box # RP94716-61301. In the link there is a chart that corresponds with the pictures in the beginning of the help article. Compare the measurements for the Lippert 1116 with the measurements on your pin box to determine fit. I believe that it is the same but you will want to take the measurements to be certain.

  • Compatibility of Reese Goose Box on Pickup Truck Flatbed With Recessed Gooseneck Ball
    I spoke with my Reese representative about the gooseneck hitch installed in your C & M flatbed. I provided the depth and dimensions around your recessed gooseneck ball, and was told that the Reese Goosebox would work perfectly with your flatbed. At 4 inches up from the very bottom where the Goosebox clamps around the gooseneck ball, the clamp mechanism is 7-1/2 inches at its widest point. Because the clamp mechanism will sit about 1-1/2 inches above the floor of the recessed area, the...

  • Comparison Between Lippert 1621 and Lippert 1716 Gooseneck Adapters
    The only difference is that the two Reese Goose Box adapters, # RP94622 and # RP94622-61301 fit different OEM pin boxes on a 5th wheel trailer. Goose Box # RP94716 fits Lippert 0719, 1621 and 1621HD pin boxes as well as Fabex PB-600 Series pin boxes. Goose Box # RP94716-61301 fits Lippert 0115, 1116 and 1716 pin boxes. It comes with an adapter plate for the narrower pin boxes listed. The pin box manufacturer and model number will be on a sticker or plate on the trailer pin box.

  • Can the Reese Goose Box Adapters Height be Adjusted
    You are correct. The Reese Goose Boxes, including # RP94716-61301, adjust vertically where they mount to the trailer only. There is no other height adjustment on it. With a gooseneck hitch height isn't normally an issue unless the hitch is in a flatbed truck or a lifted truck which would be taller than a regular stock pickup truck. Another thing to consider with the Goose Boxes is that they only fit in place of certain OEM pin boxes. To determine if there is one that will fit your trailer...

  • Will a Reese Goose Box Work with Recessed Ball or Surface Ball on Flat Bed 2016 Ram 3500
    If you are wanting to use a Reese Goose Box such as # RP94716-61301 then I would go with the ball type that sits on the top of the flat bed instead of the recessed one. You could compensate for the height, if it is an issue, by mounting the Goose Box as high up on the wings on the trailer that it can go. The recessed ball could be fine but it depends on how large the opening is around the ball so I can't say for sure if there will be interference issues.

  • Why Are Traditional Gooseneck Coupler Locks Not Recommended with Goosebox
    I spoke with my contact at Reese and he said the note you are referring to means that there is presently no compatible gooseneck coupler lock available for the Reese Goosebox, # RP94716-61301, therefore there is nothing to prevent someone from backing up his truck, assuming he has a gooseneck hitch, and driving off with your trailer. That is why a wheel lock like The CLUB Tire Claw # WI491KA, is recommended. I have included a video review of the tire claw for you to check out.

  • Replacing a 5th Airborne Pin Box 5AB-S500-700 with a Reese Goose Box Adapter
    Based on the 5th Airborne pin box number you have provided I believe that the trailer originally had a Lippert 1116 or 0115 pin box on it from the factory. The Reese Goose Box that fits is # RP94716-61301. You cannot add any sort of adapter to the 5th Airborne pin boxes. They are not designed for that application.

  • Gooseneck or 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ram and Grand Design 5th Wheel Trailer
    I looked up the BDS lift kit and it is a suspension lift which is good because that means the truck bed and frame are still the same distance apart from each other so you can install a hitch in the bed. If towing a 5th wheel trailer you will want a 5th wheel hitch but given your situation I do have a recommendation that will work as long as the 5th wheel trailer has the tapered front end for short bed trucks and as long as it has a pin box that is compatible with a Reese Goose Box.

  • How to Reduce Vertical Shock and Bounce when Towing with a 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter
    If you are using the Reese Goose Box, # RP94716-61301 are are getting too much bounce (vertical movement) then you can reduce it by having the air bag inflated to the appropriate level. Start by filling it with 35 to 40 psi. Attach the trailer and take a look at the fill label on the side of the Goose Box. If you can see all the way up to the yellow section on the label reduce the air pressure. If the fill label is not showing increase the air pressure (not to exceed 50 psi). You want...

    The Reese Goose Boxes, including # RP94716-61301, adjust vertically where they mount to the trailer only.

There isn't an offset ball for the factory fifth wheel gooseneck hitch you have in your 2018 Ford F-250 short bed. I looked up pictures of your 2017 KZ Durango 1500 D251RLT and it has a tapered nose which will help with turning clearance but since...
