Video Transcript for Demco Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters - Adapts Truck - DM6140 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna take a look at the Demco fifth-wheel base rail adaptor for the BMW Turnoverball gooseneck hitches. This adaptor is designed to mount into your gooseneck trailer hitch to supply your above-bed base rails that are necessary for installing a fifth-wheel hitch to your vehicle. This is designed to work with the BMW Turnoverball gooseneck trailer hitches, and the rails are compatible with standard, above-bed fifth-wheel hitches by Demco, BMW, CURT, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley. It is an adjustable mount, so we'll allow for bed mats and liners. And it is a fast, easy installation.I just tilt this up a little. You'll be able to see the shaft that's attached right here.

You just drop this adaptor shaft in to the gooseneck ball hole and then you lock it right into place with the included bolt and lock plate. The finish, it's a nice, sturdy, black powder coat steel, which will help resist corrosion. This part is made in the USA. A few specs on this, the gross towing weight capacy is 21,000 pounds. Vertical load limit if 5,250 pounds, and one last note about this is this adaptor cannot be used with any automatic sliding fifth-wheel hitches.

And they even have stickers right here that say that. But that should do it for the review on the Demco fifth-wheel base rail adaptor for the BMW Turnoverball gooseneck hitches.

Robert in customer service answered my questions about the product and took my order. Arrived in 2 days as stated with no packaging issues. Had it installed in 30 minutes or less after reading instructions and them mounted 5th wheel hitch to it. Installation was straightforward. As there is a torque specs for adjustment/lock bolt I suggest having torque wrench availiable for proper installation. Only reason for not giving a 5 star rating is have not pulled 5th wheel rv yet to see if it has any slack 713398

Fits like a glove and easy to manipulate. Only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is that I haven’t towed with it yet. The etrailer people are very helpful. 694706

This is my second adapter. I tried the Curt X5 first and had problems with it fitting. But etrailer worked dilligently with me to find a solution. Ultimately refunding my money on the X5 and suggesting this Demco product. It fit and worked perfectly in my truck. Thanks etrailer for your help. 326937

I am fairly unhappy with the fact that I can not use this 5th wheel rail system with my b and w gooseneck chain hooks installed. I have to unbolt the chain hooks to get the rails flush in the bed. I specifically asked if this was compatible with my set up prior to order. Pretty upset that it turned out different than what I was told. The rails are nice, but I did not want to have to modify my set up each time I want to hook up a gooseneck trailer. Hopefully this will help others in their research. 443736

The adator I purchased is a great piece of engineering. Instalation was very easy. I am very happy with it so far. Have not towed my 5th wheel yet but will soon. The only thing I can suggest to etrailer is the packaging. The cardboard box was broken open on one side and retaped. In a few places the paint was chipped off. I repainted the chips before installation so they will not rust. 572383

Product is as it says it was on the listing. I priced this item at a local camper store in Cincinnati Ohio where I reside and the price was $509.87 before tax. When I buy more items I will buy from your company in the future and will drive by my local camper store. Great communication via email and was received when it was expected. Installation took approximately 10 minutes and is an excellent product. 430963

This product worked great. Used it in a 2016 Ram 2500 4x4 with the B&W turnover ball. The only problem is the safety chains for the B&W wont let this set flat against the bed of the truck. I solved this problem by using a heavy duty 1/4 inch rubber bed mat between the bed and this bracket and cut the rubber around the B&W hole and safety chains. That helped take up the extra space and helped to protect the spray in bed liner from being rubbed. Had no problems towing my fifth wheel and was happy I don't have these rails permanently mounted in my truck bed. 545103

This adapter plate when used with the B&W turnover ball hitch allows me to use a gooseneck trailer, fifth wheel trailer, and also use a truck camper. My original Fifth wheel bed rails were interfering with installation of a truck bed camper and this eliminates that problem. Installation is very fast and only requires torquing of the single center bolt after placing the adapter lug into the socket. I had zero problems installing this unit and it only takes about a minute to do. Also the paint job is very durable. 672748

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible with Recessed Gooseneck on CM Brand Flat Bed Truck Body?
  • The Demco 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitches # DM6140 is not compatible with a recessed ball. It is compatible with a Demco hijacker hitch like # DM6076P-UL-21K, but not the Hijacker Autoslide hitch like # DM8550035. My recommendation for your application is to use the Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter for Recessed Ball - Single Jaw - 21,000 lbs # DM8550046.

The first option would be to use the Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30868 along with the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156 which will give you industry standard base rail points compatible with your 5th wheel hitch.

  • Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Options for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch
  • A sliding hitch is necessary for a short bed truck if you don't have a Sidewinder style rotating pin box to give you the turning clearance you need so your trailer doesn't make contact with the cab of your truck. Although the B&W Companion Slider # BWRVK3400-5W is the one of the best options for a slider, you are correct that you do have other options. The biggest issue is that you can't have 5th wheel rails and your gooseneck installed at the same time due to the mounting locations,...

This is helpful when the truck has a bed liner and the bed floor is slightly raised because of it. I attached a picture that shows how the adjustment is made.

  • The auto-sliding 5th wheel hitches like the PullRite SuperGlide and the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # DM8550035 which we carry cannot be used with the Demco 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter part # DM6140 or any B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Adapter for that matter. The reason for this is because there will be too much twisting on the gooseneck connection point with an auto-sliding 5th wheel hitch.

  • Will a Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Demco 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter DM6140
  • Any trailer hitch that fits in industry standard above the bed rails will fit in the Demco adapter # DM6140. Most hitches will fit in the slots on the rails that are spaced 20-1/2 inches apart on center. Any hitch that mounts on 10 inch centers (side to side) will NOT fit. I recommend using a slider hitch such as # RP30051 which can slide back 10 inches to provide more clearance when turning. But, if you have a B&W Turnover ball hitch (hitch is what adapter # DM6140 fits) then I recommend...

I recommend installing the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1384 which gives you only the the gooseneck system that you are looking for.

This adapter fits B&W gooseneck hitches, like part # BWGNRK1012 on your 2014 GMC Sierra 6-1/2 foot bed, and provides industry standard base rails for use with 5th wheel hitches.

It sounds like you have a B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch because you were interested in Demco Adapter Bars # DM6140.

This is due to the extra torque/twist that a hitch like this puts on the adapter and its connection to the gooseneck hole in the truck bed. There is not a similar rail adapter available that will both fit your Ram and work with an auto-sliding hitch. With this in mind your best option will still be with the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3400 that drops right into the...

  • Fitment & Compatibility of Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter on a 2015 Ram 2500 w/Factory B&W Gooseneck
  • Great news! The Demco # DM6140 you were looking at will be a fit for the B&W square gooseneck on your 2015 Ram 2500. This is because the pin hole that the gooseneck will mount through is adjustable. The bolt at the top center will allow you to customize the needed height for your gooseneck for your factory installed B&W gooseneck on your 2015 Ram 2500. I have linked the above mentioned product to this page for your viewing and purchasing convenience.

  • The Demco # DM6140 5th Wheel Base Rail Adapter for B&W Gooseneck Hitches installs into a B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch, and would provide industry-standard base rails that would allow you to install Reese, Draw-Tite, Curt, Valley and Husky fifth wheel hitches (among others.) Your current Husky 16K sliding fifth wheel hitch would work just fine with the Demco # DM6140 adapter.

  • Can a Sidewinder Pin Box be Used w/Demco 5th Wheel Adapter for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitches
  • I do not recommend using a Sidewinder with adapter # DM6140. The problem is with either a Sidewinder or auto-sliding hitch it takes considerable force to either make the Sidewinder turret rotate or the auto-slide hitch to pivot so it can slide back. This force is transferred to the connection point on the vehicle. Since the adapter is only secured to a single point in the middle the forces applied to it can cause the whole adapter to rotate which would damage the parts of the gooseneck...

The adapter itself (along with any other similar rail adapter) will not provide any type of turning clearance. For a short bed truck like yours you will still need to use a sliding 5th wheel hitch to provide the necessary cab clearance for making tight turns.

The underbed gooseneck systems will mount in the exact same location to your frame rails, so you cannot have both systems installed.

  • Will Demco 5th Adapter for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch Fit with Husky 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Curt X5 Adapter # 16310 does have an issue with some fifth wheel hitches because of the cross member making contact with the center of the adapter. The X5 is raised slightly in the middle that causes this. I verified with Demco that their adapter for B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitches, part # DM6140, will work with your Husky hitch as long as it fits into industry standard rails.

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch to Use for a 2013 Silverado 2500 with a 6-1/2 Bed and B&W Gooseneck Hitch
  • I do have a solution for you, but unfortunately you cannot use a Sidewinder or the Demco Adapter # DM6140 and sliding 5th wheel hitch with the B&W Gooseneck hitch installed on your 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD.
