Built-In Shock Absorption for a Smooth Ride

Whether you're hauling construction equipment or you're carrying your ATVs to the mud park, towing heavy-duty loads can be an intense job. You definitely don't want to have to deal with sharp, jolting movement every time your trailer hits a bump. Driving over bumps, potholes, and uneven terrain causes road shock. This can result in a rough ride for you and your cargo. It can even potentially damage your trailer. The Spartan from Gen-Y Hitch is designed to absorb road shock at the connection point to create a safe, smooth, and stable ride. This is thanks to the internal construction of the coupler, which is similar to that of a torsion axle.

gooseneck torsion

Pivot points are built into this gooseneck coupler. This allows for movement between the base of the coupler, which connects to the ball in your truck bed, and the top tube of the coupler, which connects to your trailer. When your vehicle hits a bump, the base of the coupler will move up or down accordingly.


Built into the Spartan are tubes with inner bars that are surrounded by rubber cords. As the coupler's base rises or falls, these inner bars twist inside of the tubes, attempting to follow the base's motion. But the rubber cords prevent the bars from twisting too far. And as each bar turns, these cords compress to absorb the shock. This means that any shock experienced by your truck can be absorbed before it reaches your trailer, and the shock experienced by your trailer won't get transferred to your truck.

This type of shock-absorption system is easy to maintain. Just regularly apply grease to the built-in zerk to keep the components in working condition. No airbags to fill. No small parts to repair or replace. No hassle.

Offset Design Gives Extra Clearance When Towing

This Gen-Y gooseneck coupler has an offset design. The bottom of the coupler, where it attaches to the ball, is positioned 5" away from the coupler tube, which inserts into the outer tube on your trailer. This provides 5" of extra clearance, giving you more space between your truck cab and trailer when making tight turns.

Easily Check Your Vertical Load

The vertical load, or tongue weight, refers to the weight that a fully loaded trailer exerts downward on the hitch ball of the tow vehicle. Too little vertical load can cause trailer sway and too much can cause poor performance.

This Gen-Y gooseneck coupler has a built-in mechanical scale so that you can check to see if your vertical load is too high or too low. The highest arrow on the scale indicates your maximum vertical load (3,500 lbs). The lowest arrow indicates no vertical load (0 lbs). A vertical load of at least 2,000 lbs is recommended for the built-in shock absorption to function effectively. This means that the scale's white indicator marker should be between the highest arrow and the middle arrow when you hook up your trailer to tow.

Video Transcript for Review of Gen-Y Hitch Gooseneck Trailer Coupler - Coupler with Inner Tube Only - 325-GH-7002

Ellen: Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here, Etrailer.com and we're going to be taking a look at the Gen-Ys Spartan Gooseneck Coupler. This is going to be a nice option for any kind of trailer where you want to have a lot of shock absorption at the coupler to make sure that you have a nice, even, smooth ride. This takes up the road force by using these Torsion-Flex arms. So it's a little different system than something that you might've seen elsewhere. The nice thing about this is that there's really no maintenance required. There's no airbags that have to be pumped up or maintained.

And you also don't have to worry about it blowing out like airbags as well. The way it works is that there's actually several rubber cords inside this tube, and then an inner solid bar that moves against those. So it creates tension between those forces.The rubber bars are, or rubber cords are going to provide some cushion, but allow that inner bar to twist against them. So it can move and flex as you go down the road and hit any bumps, but it should take the brunt out of the system. So you're not transferring that force into your towing vehicle or back into your trailer.

So it's going to keep your cargo safe and keep a more comfortable ride. While we're looking at a little closer, you can also see at the back, there's going to be this little bracket here. This is going to be our built in tongue weight scale. It's pretty bare-bones, but it does help to give you a better idea of where your tongue weight is sitting. So the max that we can handle is going to be 3,500 pounds or 3,500 pounds right now it's at nothing.So, our little indicator there is going to tell us where we are.

So once it gets this little bracket, we'll know that we're at 3,500 pounds. The comfortable tongue weight limit for this is between 2,000 and 3,500 pounds. So somewhere in there should work pretty well for this. Anything above or below that you won't get an optimal ride experience from this Gooseneck. You can see it does come with a latch style pin or a pin style latch to attach to our Gooseneck hitch down here at the bottom.

So you just move that a little catch forward, pull the pin out and you can get that in place. I'm not going to do that right now, just because my Gooseneck here is resting kind of precariously on a block of wood. So don't want to crush any fingers, but this does have a nice heavy duty steel construction.It does have a powder coat finish to it with a sort of hammer tone. Look, it should look pretty nice for a long time. As far as the numbers with this, our total gross towing weight that it can handle is 25,000 pounds. As I mentioned, the tongue weight is going to be 3,500 pounds. Optimal range of that is 2,000 to 3,500 pounds or 2,000 to 3,500 pounds. The coupler ball size that this will work with is going to be two and five 16th inch. And as far as the measurements here, the outer tube is a four- inch diameter. We'll have about five inches of offset from the center of the coupler to the center of our adjustment holes or the attachment point. The travel at our pivot points is going to be up to two inches. So that's how much it's going to travel in range there.And the vertical adjustment that we can make with our adjustment holes is about five and a half inches. Now I will say that some customers have had issues with this not fitting their particular Gooseneck trailer. That is a possibility the way to get around that is either to drill out new holes, to make sure that it does line up exactly with your particular trailer or to use a set screw, and make sure that it stays in place. Otherwise, you might have a little bit of an offset, which is something you don't really want. So, that's something to keep in mind. They do have a couple of different rows here to give you some options as far as where those holes line up. So hopefully it should fit a lot of trailers out there, but it's not going to fit everybody. So just something to keep in mind. The spacing center to center for these holes is about two and a half inches, maybe about two and three or two and five eights. So about one and a quarter up here from the top to bottom.And then these two on the inside are spaced apart by about two and three quarter inches. So some offsets there are offset a little bit from each other to help you give or to get a better range of fits for this particular hitch. It is made in the USA and does come with a limited five-year warranty. Overall, it's a nice looking gooseneck coupler. Hopefully it should fit your application, but if you need something different, we do have a lot of options here at Etrailer.com. So definitely check them out. Thanks for watching. And we'll see you next time..

Holes in hitch don’t line up with the hole in tube on my 2018 MAXXD Trailer. With holes lined up the hitch is offset towards passenger side of truck. Was really looking forward to working this hitch. Very disappointed

There are situations where the existing outer tube of the gooseneck couple will not have the correct holes to line this adapter up with. It is okay to slide this inner tube into the outer tube aligned correctly and just tighten the set screws. You will not use the pin in this case.

    I do have an option for you but the Gen-Y Gooseneck Coupler part # 325-GH-7002 is not going to work with a recessed gooseneck hitch but we do have a similar option that may, the Gen-Y Gooseneck Coupler part # 325-GH-7001 which is actually designed for this exact purpose.

  • Does Gen-Y Gooseneck Coupler with Torsion Suspension and 5-1/2 Inch Offset Improve Turning Clearnace
    This Gen-Y gooseneck coupler, part # 325-GH-7002, replaces the current coupler on your trailer and provides 5-1/2 inches of offset. The offset moves the trailer back 5 inches to provide more clearance between your truck and trailer when executing sharp turns. The biggest benefit of this coupler are the torsion flex cords that absorb the shock of your trailer. This makes your ride much smoother, which is better on you and your trailer.

  • Are Ford and Ram OEM Gooseneck Hitch Compatible with Offset for Better Turning Clearance
    The Curt 4" Offset Ball for Double-Lock Gooseneck Hitch # C602 is available only if you have the double-lock model. The other Curt models that drop in and lock through the ball lever like # C60601 featuring the Pop-In or OEM Underbed System will not have the offset option available, so it is a bummer the dealer didn't give you what you asked for with your 2018 Ram 2500 Laramie. To give you the clearance you desire, the other option is to use a gooseneck coupler offset like # BWTEXA4200...

  • Cushioned Gooseneck Coupler That Uses Pin/Holes to Attach to Outer Tube
    We can't recommend drilling holes in the Convert a Ball Cushioned Gooseneck Coupler part # CG to install it but we do have the cushioned Gen-Y Spartan coupler part # 325-GH-7002 which would work great that does use holes for mounting instead.

  • Which Gooseneck Coupler for 25900-lbs Gooseneck Trailer
    I have a solution for you, but the Gen-Y Spartan # 325-GH-7002 only has a capacity of 25000-lbs, so you're really going to be pushing it if your trailer is ever close to the GVWR. Instead, I recommend using the Convert-A-Ball Multi-Cushioned Gooseneck Trailer Coupler - Round - 30,000 lbs # CG, which is also a cushioned gooseneck coupler but it has the capacity to safely handle your 25900-lbs GVWR trailer.
