  • Fifth-Wheel Towing with Your Gooseneck Hitch

    There are a variety of adapters on the market that let you tow a fifth-wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch. You can use a coupler adapter that replaces the pin box on your fifth-wheel trailer and then attaches to the gooseneck hitch in your truck bed. But these adapters often require modifications to your trailer that can void the warranty. Another option would be using fifth-wheel rails that mount directly to your gooseneck hitch, usually by dropping into the hitch's ball hole. But to do this you have to make 2 separate purchases - the adapter plate that has the rails and a standard fifth-wheel hitch.With the Demco Recon, you get a heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch that mounts in your truck bed by connecting directly to your gooseneck hitch with the included components. No modifications are required to your truck or trailer. And no additional parts are required for the system to work.


    Secure Wraparound Jaw with Locking Bar

    Single Dimensions

    The single-piece, strong wraparound jaw completely surrounds your trailer's king pin for 360 degrees of contact. This wraparound jaw provides a more secure connection than standard 2-piece jaws that close in on the king pin from the sides. The increased jaw-to-king-pin contact on the Recon hitch offers tighter tolerances around the king pin, which minimizes both rattle and chucking, for a smooth, quiet ride.


    A 3/4" thick solid steel locking bar spans the area in front of the jaw. This bar provides an added barrier of protection against accidental disconnection so you can have peace of mind that your trailer is secure. The locking bar is attached to the jaw and to the spring-loaded handle. The bar automatically locks when the jaw closes around your king pin.


    Double-Pivot, Cushioned Hitch Head

    Head and Head Components

    The double pivoting, cushioned head improves your towing experience dramatically by helping to reduce jarring and unwanted noise. Built-in pins allow the hitch head to pivot back and forth and side to side. And hookup is easy because the hitch head will automatically pivot to the proper angle when it comes into contact with your pin box.


    Polyurethane dampeners help to cushion the movement from the pivoting head and to reduce towing noise. These dampeners are built into the head assembly to cushion the head's side-to-side pivoting.


    Easy Installation

    This hitch is designed to attach to the 2-5/16" ball on your gooseneck hitch.


    Assembling the hitch is quick and easy because of its lightweight, 2-piece design. First, attach the base to your gooseneck ball. A coupler pin is installed underneath the ball and the coupler is tightened to keep the Recon secure. Then simply slide the head assembly into the opening in the base. There are 3 different height settings to choose from - just slide the head up or down to find your desired height.


    Recon detailedRecon detailed 2

    Once you have chosen your desired height, use the included pin to secure the head to the base. Finally, tighten the bolt to eliminate any movement and rattle.

Video Transcript for Demco Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters - Adapts Truck - DM8550045 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Demco Recon gooseneck to fifth wheel trailer hitch adapter. It has a 21,000 pound weight capacity. Now this trailer hitch adapter will convert your gooseneck hitch to a fifth wheel hitch, so it will let you tow your fifth wheel trailer. The base will drop just over your gooseneck ball in your truck bed. It does have a head with wrap around single piece jaw, which will provide a nice secure connection. It gives you 360 degree jaw to king-pin contact, so that will give you less rattle, more security than the slide bar jaws.If you notice in front, it has a nice 3/4" thick solid steel locking bar, to reinforce the connection with your coupled trailer.

This bar will automatically lock into place when the jaw closes. The head is a double pivot pitch head. It eases hookup, helps limit chucking. Pivots front to back, and side to side. It does use cushioning polyurethane dampeners, to help reduce your noise and absorb road shock.

The handle is a nice spring loaded handle with a comfort grip. It allows for easy, simple coupling. All you have to so is take this tethered safety pin, remove it. That safety pin will let you secure the handle in the open, or the closed position.Your spring loaded handle is you just pull it out. You pull out far enough, you can hear it locks it into the open position.

Now you're ready to hook up. Now you can use three different hitch height settings on this. When you tow your fifth wheel, you want to make sure it's as level as possible when you're towing it. This larger shank right here drops into the base. There's a pin, and a clip here.

If you pull the clip out, and the larger pin out, you can put that into three different hitch height settings, anywhere from 15 1/2", to 17 1/4", or up to 18". The hitch height is always measured from your truck bed to the top of the hitch head. Now the base also has a 3" offset. In other words, when you go to drop it onto your gooseneck ball, it does sit back 3" towards that cab. So it will move the hitch head 3" toward the trailer. It will give you 3" of clearance.This part is a study steel construction. It has a nice rust resistant black powder coat finish to it. It is a light two piece design, which makes installation or removal quick and easy. It a quick, simple installation. The hitch base, the part down here, just installs on the ball of the gooseneck hitch. The hitch head will secure right onto the part right here, and because it's a two piece design, makes it very easy to remove it. Also, you just pull the clip and pin here. Take the hitch head off. Take the base off. Simple as that.This part is made in the USA. The application, again, is designed to fit on to 2 5/16th diameter gooseneck hitch balls. Gross towing weight capacity is 21,000 pounds. Vertical load limit is 5,250 pounds. As we mentioned, the hitch height settings can be anywhere from 15 1/2", 17 1/4", and 18". The last thing I was to show you, I just want to show you how the hitch head will work. Here's a example of what a king-pin would be like on your fifth wheel. When you go to hook up, your king-pin would slide into the head, just like this. You can see, once it gets far enough back, it will release it. As you noticed, the jaw comes around. Then that locking back locks it into place.You're all ready to go. Last thing you have to do is just take your safety pin, drop it into the hole in the handle. Clip it, and you're locked into place, all ready to go, simple as that. But that should do it, for the review on the Demco Recon gooseneck to fifth wheel trailer hitch adapter, with a 21,000 pound weight capacity.

The hitch is easy to ensemble. Great design. Pulled my trailer great! But when I hooked up the second time to the trailer the roll pin that goes in the locking bar fell out. Wasn't a really big deal. But if I hadn't had any tools and a 1/4" bolt with a lock nut I probably won't have been able to hook up. Maybe they could change that. The best adapter from gooseneck to fifth wheel.But all in all very happy with it. 634063

From start to finish my experience with etrailer was top notch. I studied all the videos on deciding my hitch choice and more than happy. Took approx.1 hour to install completely, now ready to start using. The heavy duty quality was more than expected. Thanks again. Santa K (Kevin) P.S. ordered 2 days later on my door step 609647

It's a very quality piece of equipment. It clunks a little more than my gooseneck so not sure if that is supposed to do that or not and I am not as comfortable as I probably should be because I think this results in two moving parts- at the gooseneck ball and at the fifth wheel plate. I think the footprint spreads that out but without being in the back when in tow, I'm not sure if it is acting properly. It seems that starting and stopping results in a lot of banging and clanking and this after I tightened down all the bolts/nuts to proper torque. In all I'll keep it but might see about just installing the actual fifth wheel rails in the truck anyway. 570633

I use this hitch adapter a few times a month and have had no issues with it. The paint and parts all still look brand new and it is easy for me to assemble and take apart by myself. I'm 5'3" female and can move this in and out of my truck by myself as long as I take apart all 3 pieces. I looked at a lot of adapters and this was the only one I could move myself that didn't require any modifications to the 5th wheel pin. We drive commercially and even my clients are comfortable with us using this adapter when we arrive to transport trailers nationwide. Great product at a very fair price! 625500

  • Adapting a Gooseneck Hitch to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2011 Ford F-350
  • The hole for gooseneck balls are not all the same. The Companion hitches such as # BWRVK3050, which was designed for flat bed trucks, only fit B&W Turnover Ball gooseneck hitches. For a gooseneck ball that sticks up from the bed (and is not recessed in a cavity like on a flat bed truck) you can use the Demco Recon hitch # DM8550045. It clamps around a 2-5/16 inch gooseneck ball. I have included a link to a video review of this hitch for you. Another option is to adapt the trailer...

  • Compatibility of B&W Gooseneck Hitch and Offset Ball with Andersen Ultimate Hitch on 2018 F-150 5.5
  • For your 2018 Ford F-150 with 5.5 foot bed, the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1115 is the correct fit. You will want to use the 4 inch offset ball # BWGNXA4085 because the bed is shorter than 6 feet. This offset ball will work with the Andersen Ultimate Hitch but you will still need to be careful with turning clearances due to the short bed and Super Crew Cab.

  • Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Adapter for 2006 Ram 3500 with Valley Stow-A-Ball or Similar Gooseneck Hitch
  • In 2006 Ram trucks did not come with a factory gooseneck hitch. That would have been a dealer option. Based on your picture it appears to be a Valley Stow-A-Ball hitch or something very similar. What I recommend to tow a 5th wheel trailer is to use the Demco Recon # DM8550045. This hitch attaches to a standard 2-5/16 inch gooseneck ball regardless of brand. It is rated for 21,000 pounds, and since it has an actual 5th wheel hitch head it provides a safer connection than other adapters. Another...

  • When you already have a gooseneck hitch in your 2002 Chevy 3500, you unfortunately won't be able to add base rails as they will interfere with the gooseneck hitch mounts. There are adapters for some gooseneck systems that allow you to use more standard hitch options. For instance we have the Companion 5th wheel hitch # BWRVK3500 if you have a B&W gooseneck hitch or the Curt X5 # 16310 for that same system. If you have the Curt Double Lock, there is the X5 adapter # C16210 or # C16220...

If you want something that is much lighter then I recommend the Demco Recon # DM8550045 which weighs in just under 110 lbs and installs on a hitch ball like the B&W # BWGNXA2061.

Keep in mind too that the system is designed so that it can be easily removed from the bed in a couple of pieces (the head and base). This allows a single person to remove or install the hitch. I have attached a short video review on this hitch that you can check out as well.

You would need to use a sliding hitch to allow for the proper turning clearance.

Do you happen to know the brand of gooseneck hitch in your 1999 Ram 2500? If it happens to be a B&W gooseneck hitch then you could use the Companion slider # BWRVK3400 and you'd just need to put a B&W gooseneck hitch in the 2010 Ram using # BWGNRK1313.

If you had industry standard base rails then I would recommend using a sliding 5th wheel hitch, or a stationary hitch along with a Reese Sidewinder like part # RP61421.

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with Turning Point Pin Box with 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 with Gooseneck Hitch
  • The Turning Point pin box relies on force from the trailer when you start to make a turn to rotate its turret. To do this it has to lock out the ability of the trailer to pivot at the 5th wheel hitch. This puts a lot of force on the hitch which is transferred to the connection point. A 5th wheel hitch designed to couple to a gooseneck ball or use the ball hole will have a single connection point which is insufficient for the amount of force applied to the hitch. It can cause the parts of...
