Construction feels very solid and I like the big openings for the chain hooks. Some of the pins were a little tight to get in but with a little gentle hammering it they were in. I like the offset as it gets me closer to directly over the axle. 797580

by:

I use this hitch with a set of Reese above the bed rails for towing gooseneck trailers, mostly a small livestock trailer. One of the features I really like is that the ball is not centered front to back in the plate. This allows me to turn the plate around when the "neck" of the goose is shorter than makes me comfortable to give myself a few extra inches of clearance. Usually I have it turned so the ball is as far foward as possible as it gives the best weight distribution on to the truck. Very good product, I highly recommend it. 568268

by:

Was bit if a tight fit and had to kick it to make all 4 spots fit, but that could just be because my truck bed isn't very level and therefore neither are the rails. Lol. So far works great! 559986

Ask the Experts about this Pro Series Gooseneck Hitch

  • Spacing of Mounting Tabs On Pro Series # 49080 Bed Rail Mounted Gooseneck Hitch
    The mounting tabs of the Pro Series # 49080 Bed Rail Mounted Gooseneck Hitch are compatible with industry-standard bed rails from Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Valley and Husky. If any of these companies manufactured your bed rails, the Pro Series # 49080 would work great for you. Center of tab to center of tab, the mounting tabs are 10 inches apart, side to side. Center of tab front to back is approximately 22 inches apart, 21-15/32 inches to be exact. See the photo I've linked...

  • Does a Short Bed 2010 Chevy Silverado Need an Offset Gooseneck Ball
    For short bed trucks an offset gooseneck ball tends to be the best option since it will give additional clearance for the truck and trailer to make tight turns. A lot of that will depend on the shape of the nose of the trailer. The wider the front of the trailer is the more likely you will need to use an offset to make sharper turns. For a gooseneck hitch that has an offset adapter available that would fit your 2010 Chevy Silverado you would want the # 9465-34. Then for an offset...

  • Will the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate Fit on RBW 5th Wheel Rails
    The Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate, # 49080, that you referenced will fit on your RBW rails as long as they are the industry standard rails. If they are custom RBW rails, then it will not fit. I spoke with my contact for Pro Series and they do not test their gooseneck plates on RBW rails, so the fit is not guaranteed. I pulled the item from our warehouse and took some measurements for you. The distance between the tabs front to back is 22 inches from center to center. The distance between...

  • What are the Two Additional Carriage Bolts Used For with the Pro Series Gooseneck Plate
    The carriage bolts, washers and spacer blocks that are included with the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate, # 49080, only need to be used if you have a 4-bolt base rails installed on your truck. You can tell if you have a 4-bolt kit if you only have two carriage bolts holding each base rail to the frame brackets . I have attached a photo showing the difference between 4-bolt rails and 10-bolt rails. The two additional bolts will need to be installed in the center holes on the base rails...

    If you do not have the gooseneck installed yet the most recommended setup you can use is to have a 5th-wheel system installed first and then when you wish to tow a gooseneck trailer, you would remove the 5th-wheel hitch and use an adapter plate, like the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate for Fifth Wheel Rails, part # 49080, with a gooseneck ball attached for towing. If you already have a gooseneck or wish to have a gooseneck hitch installed and use an adapter to convert it to a fifth...

    The hitch ball for the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate # 49080 referenced in your question is welded into place and cannot be removed. If you are looking for a similar gooseneck plate that attaches to 5th wheel base rails but with a removable hitch ball I recommend taking a look at the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # RP58079. The ball for this system locks into place with a snap ring. This not only allows the ball to be removed if needed but also lets it rotate when you're...

  • Gooseneck Hitch that Fits in 5th Wheel Rails and Has an Offset
    There are gooseneck plates that have an offset depending on which way you mount it to the rails in the truck. You can use Pro Series gooseneck hitch plate # 49080, Curt model # 16055, or Husky model # HT31368. I have linked videos of all three products for you. I also recommend safety chain loops # C16000 because many places do not allow the safety chain loops to attach to the hitch.

  • Does the Gooseneck Hitch Ball Position Impact How a Trailer Will Tow Behind a 1989 Ford F-350
    The reason why someone might use a gooseneck hitch, like # 49080, would be in cases where they might have an issue with clearance between trailer and the cab of the truck. You would see this on truck with short beds. The pivot point of the ball can be moved 4 inches closer to the rear of the truck. This distance will give the truck 4 more inches of clearance when making turns so not to have contact between the trailer and the truck. This adapter will attach to the bed of a truck using...

  • Availability of Fifth Wheel Rail Kit to Gooseneck Adapter that Can Replace Pullrite Superglide Hitch
    Pullrite Superglide hitches can be made to fit two different styles of fifth wheel rails. They have an industry standard rail kit hitch (or "ISR" as they call it), which we do have a gooseneck adapter available. For that you would want the part # 49080 which will fit those rails and give you a gooseneck ball. If you happen to have the other Pullrite style rails we won't be able to help with that.

  • Options for Towing 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailers with the Same Truck
    The best way to proceed will depend on if there is already a fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch installed on your truck. If you already have a gooseneck hitch installed, we offer several different adapters that will allow you to tow a fifth wheel using a gooseneck ball. The Rapid Hitch Ranch Hitch adapter, part # AM3100 is one of our best sellers, but keep in mind that using the adapters can void some fifth wheel warranties because of the extra stress they can place on the frame of the fifth...

  • Will the Pro Series Gooseneck Adapter part # 49080 fit Pullrite Fifth Wheel Rails
    As long as the Pullrite rails are the industry standard rail dimensions that are 22 inches apart between rail centers then yes, the Pro Series Gooseneck Adapter part # 49080 would fit and work well. From left to right the mounting tabs of this are 10 inches apart.

  • Will Draw-Tite Gooseneck Plate Fit in 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Rails
    The Pro Series gooseneck plate # 49080 fits in industry standard above the bed 5th wheel rails so you will not have to move and remount the rails. I actually recommend going with # 49080 because it has an offset, depending on which way to attach it to the rails. An offset will provide more clearance when turning if you should need it.

  • Should Ball Spin On Gooseneck Plate For Fifth Wheel Rails
    One of the gooseneck trailer hitch adapters we offer is part # RP58079. This holds the ball in place with a clip and the ball will spin. We offer two gooseneck trailer hitch adapters from Reese that will allow you to hook your gooseneck trailer up while using fifth wheel rails. The other adapter is the one you came from, part # 49080 and it has the ball welded in place. If the weld has broken and allows the ball to move, it would be dangerous and you should stop using it immediately. I...

The plate is rated for 25,000 gross towing weight, but the capacity will be determined by your installation kit and the above-bed rails.

This adapter is confirmed to fit in Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese and Valley brand rails and would work well with, what most likely are Reese rails, that are in your vehicle.

  • Comparing Fifth Wheel Trailer Towing and Gooseneck Trailer Towing
    Fifth wheel and gooseneck hitches both have their pros and cons. Gooseneck trailers are primarily commercially used, while 5th Wheels are primarily used recreationally. A fifth wheel will generally have a smoother ride, which can be further improved by upgrading to an air-ride pin box which helps isolate road shock from the tow vehicle. Gooseneck hitches are typically rated up to 30K, but that capacity will be limited by the capacity of the install bracketry or by the towing capacity...

  • Using a Gooseneck Hitch in a 2008 Ford Super Duty that Already has 5th Wheel Rails in the Bed
    I do have a solution for you. First, the short answer is that an under bed gooseneck hitch cannot be installed because the 5th wheel install kit brackets occupy the same space which cannot be shared with both a gooseneck hitch and 5th wheel rails. In order to use a gooseneck hitch in your 2008 Ford Super Duty with the Reese above the bed rails you can use a gooseneck plate. I recommend Pro Series gooseneck hitch # 49080 because it is a great value. Or, if you like the Reese brand, you...
