Video Transcript for Pro Series Adjustable Gooseneck Coupler Review

Randy: Hey guys, it's Randy here at etrailer.com. Today, we're taking a look at a gooseneck coupler from Pro Series. Now, this is a 2-5/16 inch coupler. Going to work out with most of your standard gooseneck balls. And it's a pretty standard setup. You can see we've got our capture plate here on the bottom.

That locks in with the pan spring loaded with a really nice large handle. So we're able to get that up, even with gloves on.It's just going to be the basic connection point. There are some that have much thicker bases to them, but this is going to be what you really see in your utility trailers, and especially on farm trailers. I think the main spot where you'll see this one being used is going to be in those applications, something that maybe you've got a skid loader or a tractor on the trailer. You don't really care about the ride quality for that.

And short distances, I see this being used a lot, or in farm use. Maybe we're hauling hay from one side of the field over to the other.If you do a lot of time traveling, you spend a lot of time hauling gooseneck trailers, I think you'd probably want to upgrade to something cushioned like the Gen-Y or the convertible. That can add a lot smoother ride in the truck and for the trailer, especially if you're going to have horses, if you're going to have livestock, or if you've got living quarters in there, and you want to make sure when you get there, everything's going to be in good shape.Now, something that sets this coupler apart from some of the others that we have available, so you'll notice there's no pin that goes through to secure it. That gives us better adjustability with this. We can adjust this down to eighth or half-inch increments.

Whereas when you have that load-bearing pin in there, you're generally left with about two-inch increments, 2-11/16ths. So, without that pin being there, we're really able to fine-tune this and keep both our truck and trailer nice and level, which will give us a good towing experience.Now, these couplers being that there's no cushion or there's no absorption in them, can lead to a little bit stiffer ride, can lead to a little bit of chucking. That's what you'll see. Some of the customers that have any complaints about their gooseneck coupler, that tends to be what they complain about. Although, this one is made to do a great job.

It's nice, heavy-duty. It's sturdy. It feels really sturdy. And our customers seem to like it, giving it good reviews.Now, with the raw unfinished steel that it has, you are going to need to have it painted. And I like that. I think that's a good option because we can customize this to the color of our trailer and it can look nice. A lot of times you'll see these that have the black powder coat finish on them, and if your trailer's black, it's going to be a pretty good match. But if you had a red trailer or a white trailer, maybe something like that, getting that painted to match will give you a nice look.To ensure that this coupler is going to work for your application, the capacity of it and the 2-5/16s are really the big key measures. You want to be sure that you don't exceed the 25,000-pound gross trailer weight rating that this coupler has, but you also don't want to exceed the capacity of your trailer or your truck. So, be sure to check those out before you hook up and use it.Now, to get connected to your truck, we need to lift the handle and bring that gate forward. That pin is spring loaded. You can see it kind of holds that gate open for us so we can then back in and we've got a nice bevel here on the bottom. So you can see that here. That's basically going to help us out if we're not exactly dead center underneath here, kind of center it up and guide that ball into the appropriate hole. Once you've got your ball in there, you get your tongue weight down on it, push that gate back, that pin's going to go down in the hole, get everything nice and secure, make the rest of your connections, and you'll be ready to hit the road.Now, as far as the installation on your coupler's concerned, that's really going to depend on where you're starting in the process. The outer tube is included, so this is going to be a really good solution if you're rebuilding a trailer, maybe there is some damage, you need to repair it, or you're just building a new trailer altogether. This is going to be a very common size. These outer tubes are always about 20 inches long. This one's a little bit different than standard ones in the fact that it uses squares on the head of the bolts that go in. A 23-millimeter socket with 12 points will fit that. So you can get it torqued down properly. Then, you're just going to use a standard three-quarter inch jam nut. It's going to take an inch and an eighth to get that tightened down. Now, the coupler and this are both unpainted. So you're not going to have to grind off any paint and worry about repainting it later. Just get it welded on there. You can see how they welded all the way down around the back, and then you can paint it all to match your trailer.Something to keep in mind though, the top of the tube is open and just about any gooseneck that you're going to see, they've got a cap on it. We strongly recommend that you have a cap welded onto yours, so you weld it on there, just to keep prevent moisture and stuff from getting down in there. The way the inner tube's going to slide in here, moisture gets in there, it's probably going to rust together.Now, for the inner tube portion, you can position this pretty much however you want. I've seen some people say that they like to position their handle towards the back so you can get it from both sides. I always like it being over to the driver's side. So, I'll just going to position it that way. And as we install this, if you're not building a new trailer, measure the bottom of your original coupler and then get it to match. If you are building a new trailer, you'll want this to sit about two inches below the height of your ball and the bed of your truck. That should keep you pretty level.And then with most trailers, we've got the inch and an eighth here that we'll need to tighten that down. There's no load-bearing pin so we don't have to worry about that, but you will need to support it as you tighten it. And then of course, torque it down to the appropriate specification. Once that's torqued, you want to bring that jam nut down against the weld nut, and then with an inch and a eighth, we're going to put some pressure on that. That's going to prevent that jam nut or that hex nut from backing out..

Glad to see etrailer.com carry some fabricating parts. Modified this coupler to convert a fifth wheel to goose neck. Excellent product!

Review from a similar Pro Series GN Coupler in Gooseneck Coupler


Very well made. No rust. All parts, few they were, were there. Welded nice. Ups was rough with the box but it had a tear where the base of the coupler sticks out. Might need a little wrapping with all the material they use to ship it.

Review from a similar Pro Series GN Coupler in Gooseneck Coupler


I just received this goosneck hitch coupler in the mail. After opening the box it was everything that the description said. It seems to have good solid welds and the coupler seams so function smoothly. I will be installing it on my dump trailer that I'm building in the weeks to come. I do not see any reason thus far why this product should fail or give me problems. I compared it too a goosneck trailer that I purchased new and have used a lot over the years and it looks like a identical coupler. So far I would recommend this product if your building or repairing your goosneck trailer.

well made at a good price point. Going to use this component to fabricate a custom gooseneck hitch for an older 5th wheel camp trailer, no photos yet.

Review from a similar Pro Series GN Coupler in Gooseneck Coupler


my goose neck trailer came from the factory with a fixed hitch. While this worked well for my older 2wd truck, not so much for the newer high ride 4wd trucks.
being a welder for well over 30 years the conversion of the new hitch was a snap.
Long story short, now the hitch is adjustable, the trailer levels out nicely, and pulls like it should.
Great product and service.

Review from a similar Pro Series GN Coupler in Gooseneck Coupler


Website was very well designed and very responsive. Selection of products was clear as was the pricing. I purchased a gooseneck coupler for my livestock trailer. Based on the description and detailed drawings provided on the etrailer site I was able to make a decision and purchase what I needed. I cut out the old coupler and installed the new one in an afternoon.

by:

Review from a similar Pro Series GN Coupler in Gooseneck Coupler


The on line purchase was easy,and shipping was fast.
I just recieved the hitch and have not had time too install.
The coupler is what I needed too upgrade and replace the old one
I would do business with E-Trailer now and in the future.
We have six trailers used for ranch work and looks like E-Trailer carries the parts I need for repairs.With fast service and door to door shipping .this saves me time and money
I think it's going too work for us
