Full Truck Bed Access

Draw-Tite Hi-Rise Fifth Wheel in Truck Bed

The Hi-Rise fifth-wheel trailer hitch is designed to give you full truck bed access when you're not towing. Because the Hi-Rise installs in an underbed mounting system instead of on above-bed base rails, you can remove the hitch when it's not in use, leaving your truck bed completely open for cargo.


Simple, Stable Installation

Draw Tite Fifth Wheel Stabilizer Strips

The included round post attaches to the Hi-Rise hitch and drops into the underbed mounting system (sold separately). Stabilizer strips on the base of the hitch fit into your truck bed's corrugation to limit movement. The fifth-wheel base has offset legs for improved stability. The longer back legs brace the hitch to ensure that it stays planted in the truck bed, even during emergency braking situations.


Forged, Self-Latching Jaw

Draw Tite Fifth Wheel TopDraw Tite Fifth Wheel Bottom

The single-piece, self-latching jaw on this fifth-wheel hitch provides absolute security with its wraparound design. Increased jaw-to-king-pin contact results in not only a stronger connection, but less rattle and movement as well. And the convenient lock indicator on the hitch handle ensures that hookup is complete and secure before you can lock your trailer to your hitch.


Pivot Action for Simple Hookup

Draw Tite Fifth Wheel Pivot

It's easier than ever to hook your fifth-wheel trailer up to your hitch thanks to the 4-way pivoting head on this fifth-wheel hitch. The 10-degree front-to-back and 4-degree side-to-side movement make hookup easy, even on unlevel ground.

I pull a 37' Cougar with four slides like a dream. The two issues I have with this 5th hitch convenience and ease of application. This hitch is used with a goose-neck. The issue is that you cannot pull the ball release and remove the hitch without having weight on it on the hitch. The second issue revolves around hooking up. A dust shield sits immediately under the channel guides. Unless you are at the perfect height, your hitch gets snagged and you have to make several attempts to hook up...otherwise, you cannot lock the receiver. 273281

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel?


  • Jaw Will Not Open All the Way on Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter
  • It sounds like your Hi Rise hitch # 9480-5W just needs some routine maintenance. Over time the moving parts could get grim caught up in the works and cause the jaw retraction problem you are having. Making sure the moving parts are cleaned and lubricated per the manual is the first step I recommend taking. I have linked the manual for you. If you continue to have the problem then it is also possible that something is worn and/or needs to be replaced. In this case it is most likely a...

  • Will the Draw-Tite Hi Rise 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter Fit a Pop Up 228 Gooseneck Hitch
  • The Hi-Rise 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # 9480-5W has only been tested with and confirmed for B&W Turnover Ball, Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose, and Bulldog underbed gooseneck trailer hitches. I can't confirm whether or not it will fit your hitch but there is another option. No matter what brand the gooseneck is as long as it has a 2-5/16 inch ball you can use the Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection # AM3225. It looks like a gooseneck on a pyramid but there is a second part of the adapter which...

  • No-Drill 5th Wheel Hitch Installation Kit for 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 Long Bed
  • The easiest 5th wheel base rail installation will be with a custom-fit kit. For your 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 long bed we offer the Husky kit # HT31404-686 which does still require some frame drilling for installation but less than universal kits like # RP30035. We do offer other kits that do not require any frame drilling. These are the B&W Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1394-5W that works with their Companion 5th wheel hitch # BWRVK3500-5W. This set-up gives you both goose neck and...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch With Under-Bed Installation Kit For 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
  • We have a few fifth wheel trailer hitches that have custom under-bed rails that will work with your Silverado. They vary by manufacturer and the towing capacity. I have attached a link to our product page for the systems that will work. The system I recommend for 18000-lb capacity is the Draw-Tite hitch, part # 9480-5W with the custom underbed kit, part # 9465-56-5W. This hitch has a 4-way pivoting head and 4 height settings to make sure you have the right fit. The bed of your truck...

  • Mounting Hole Pattern for Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Hitch on a 2006 GMC Sierra 3500 Long Bed
  • The Hi Rise 5th wheel adapter # 9480-5W doesn't have holes at the corners. It mounts in a gooseneck ball hole, specifically B7W Turnover ball hitches and Reese, Draw-Tite, or Bulldog Hide-A-Goose hitches. Likewise, the Draw-Tite gooseneck hitch # 9465-45-5W will have the large center gooseneck hole and the holes through which the safety chain u-bolts go. It and the Hi Rise are compatible with one another. The center hole will be 3-1/2 inches in diameter. The holes to mount the hitch...

  • Compatibility of Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rail Adapter to B&W Patriot Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Curt X5 adapter you mentioned, part # C16210 is indeed compatible with a sliding fifth wheel hitch like the B&W Patriot, part # BWRVK3270, but the adapter IS NOT compatible with your Reese Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck hitch you currently have. Unfortunately, Reese doesn't offer a rail adapter similar to the X5 that's compatible with their gooseneck hitches. Reese offers a High Rise Adapter, part # 9480-5W that'll work on long bed trucks, but short bed trucks need to use a sliding hitch...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel System For 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 For Full Bed Access When Not towing
  • For an underbed rail system that gives you full bed access when you are not towing I recommend the Reese rail kit, part # RP30868. The hitch that would work well with this is the Curt Q24, part # C16245. To get this system to work together, you will need the adapter, part # RP30154. This allows you to be able to use the Curt hitch with the underbed rail kit. Since you do not seem to like the design of the B&W hitch, this is the system I would go with. If you change your mind the system...

  • Fifth Wheel Rails That do not Require Drilling into the Frame on 1998 Chevy C/K Series Pickup Truck
  • There would not be a way to use the Pro Series # PS30855 fifth wheel hitch without the base rails # RP30035 that require you drill into the frame of your 1998 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup. If drilling into the frame of your truck is a deal breaker, there are two options available. One is the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500-5W and the Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1000-5W. This is a high-quality fifth-wheel with an underbed install that allows you to remove the fifth wheel and doubles...

  • How Does the Hi-Rise 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Secure in a Gooseneck Ball Hole
  • The Hi-Rise 5th wheel trailer hitch # 9480-5W comes with shanks that attach to the bottom, center section of the hitch and are held in the gooseneck ball hole with the same pin that holds the gooseneck ball in. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you. The round shank is designed for use with Draw-Tite/Reese Hide-A-Goose hitches and Bulldog underbed hitches and the square shank fits B&W Turnover Ball hitches.

  • 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter for an Unknown Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • The Hi-Rise 5th wheel hitch # 9480-5W comes with 2 shanks that would fit down inside the gooseneck ball hole. There is a square one for B&W gooseneck hitches and a round one for Hide-A-Goose hitches by Draw-Tite or Reese or under-bed models from Bulldog. The hitch shank locks into place the same way the gooseneck ball would for those hitches; with a pin that goes through the shank. Since you do not know the model gooseneck hitch you have I recommend a different adapter that will work...

  • Recommended Underbed System For 5th Wheel Hitch In 1999 Chevy 1 Ton
  • For your 1999 Chevy 1 Ton, there are two underbed systems customized for your vehicle available that both utilize a gooseneck underbed hitch as the mount for the 5th wheel hitch. The most popular of these two options is the Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWGNRK1000-5W along with the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # BWRVK3500-5W.

  • Hi-Rise Gooseneck-To-5th-Wheel Hitch Adapter Compatibility With 2011 Ram 2500
  • I reached out to the manufacturer and they said that the Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter by Bulldog, Draw-Tite and Reese # 9480-5W has a round adapter that is 2.6 inches. If your gooseneck is larger or smaller than that adapter that slides into the gooseneck hitch ball hole, it will not work. If it does fit properly, then you will be able to use this 5th wheel hitch adapter. This adapter only works with the removable ball gooseneck hitches, not the flip from the...

  • Are All Components Included the Hi-Rise Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • Both the Draw-Tite Custom Underbed Installation Kit, # 9460-39-5W, and the Hi-Rise 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # 9480-5W, will have all the needed equipment to connect a gooseneck or 5th wheel trailer to your 2000 Dodge Ram truck. However, components like vehicle wiring, brake controller, or safety chains will not be included with these the two hitches. If needed, I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, # 90885, with the Brake Controller Wiring Harness, # 3020-P. I also...

  • Would Gooseneck Plate Hitch Need to Be Removed to Install Draw Tite Gooseneck Hitch
  • Sounds like your 1995 Chevy 3500 has a plate style gooseneck hitch installed in the bed of it. You will have to remove that to install the Custom Underbed Installation Kit # 9465-40-5W so that you can use the Hi Rise Fifth Wheel Hitch part # 9480-5W.
