Gooseneck-to-Fifth-Wheel Hitch Adapter

Increase your towing versatility with this Hi-Rise adapter. The fifth-wheel hitch mounts in the ball hole of your existing underbed gooseneck hitch with included posts.

Hi-Rise adapter round and square mounting postsHi-Rise adapter mounting post installed

Round and Square Gooseneck Posts

The posts screw into the bottom of fifth-wheel hitch and drop down into the ball hole on the underbed gooseneck hitch. A square post is included for use with B&W gooseneck hitches, and a round post is included for use with Bulldog, Draw-Tite and Reese gooseneck hitches. Both posts can be adjusted for height to ensure a tight, secure fit with the truck bed floor.

Hi-Rise adapter self-latching jawHi-Rise adapter self-latching jaw underside

Single-Piece, Self-Latching Jaw

The fifth-wheel head has a single-piece, self-latching jaw with an extended-length handle for easy operation. The jaw wraps tightly around your trailer king pin and automatically latches in place when connected properly to ensure safe towing. The handle can be locked with a padlock (37DAT; sold separately).

Hi-Rise wide kingpin funnel

4-Way Pivoting Head

The fifth-wheel head pivots 4 degrees side to side and 10 degrees front to back to ensure easy trailer hookup, even on ground that is not level. A 9-inch-wide funnel area (rather than a standard 6-inch-wide funnel) provides a large target for lining up your trailer king pin with the fifth-wheel hitch.

Hi-Rise adjustable height head

Adjustable Height

The fifth-wheel head has 3-3/4" of vertical adjustment to accurately match your particular trailer's height. Simply remove four bolts - two per side - and move the head up or down to your desired height.

Hi-Rise stabilizer strips - inside viewHi-Rise stabilizer strips with capped leg

Stabilizer Strips for Corrugated Truck Beds

The fifth-wheel hitch includes stabilizer strips that attach to the bottom of your fifth-wheel legs. The strips sit in the grooves of the truck bed to provide a more level mounting surface and to create more friction with the truck bed. This makes it less likely that the hitch will rotate or move during use.

Hi-Rise offset legs

Offset Legs

The fifth-wheel base has offset legs to improve the braking performance of your trailer. The longer back legs brace the hitch to ensure that it stays planted in the truck bed, even during emergency braking situations.

Video Transcript for Draw-Tite 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter Installation - 2005 Dodge Ram Pickup

Today on our 2005 Dodge Ram pickup, we'll be installing the Draw-Tite Hi-Rise gooseneck-to-5th-wheel trailer hitch adaptor, part number 9480. First we'll need to assemble the unit, so we'll go ahead and take the head assembly bracket and install it onto the base unit. To secure the bracket to the base unit, we'll use the 5/8 bolt along with the 5/8 split lock washer. Special note: This is also where you'll get the adjustment for your head unit. We'll go ahead and set ours at the third level, or second from highest level for this application. With all of our hardware in place, we can now go ahead and tighten and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions.

Next, we'll go ahead and install the head springs. This will help keep the pitch of the head and keep the nose down. We'll be using the hardware provided with our install kit, which will be the 1/4" bolt and 1/4" flat washer, spacer, and spring. We'll take the flat washer, put it onto the bolt, followed by the spacer, run it through the spring, and secure it to the head bracket assembly. We'll go ahead and repeat the same process on the opposite side.

Now with both of those installed, we ready to go ahead and take the entire base unit and set it into the vehicle. Here we'll take the king pin funnel into the base unit, securing it with the 5/8 conical tooth washer and 5/8 lock nut. Then we'll go ahead and set the base unit into the gooseneck hole, locking it into position. Next, we'll need to secure the side fastener on the king pin funnel. This will be a narrow bolt that we'll use the 5/8 pull wire to pull up from underneath the vehicle into position, and then secure it with a 5/8 conical tooth washer and nut.

We'll go ahead and take the bolt leader, feed it through the attachment point, and underneath the vehicle. Then we'll get underneath the vehicle and thread the narrow bolt onto the bolt leader and pull it up into position. Once we have it in position, we'll go ahead and remove the bolt leader, slide on our conical tooth washer, and then the nut. Now we can go ahead and tighten down both of the king pin funnel fasteners. Now with both fasteners tightened down, we'll go ahead and adjust the stabilizer strips underneath the legs of the base unit, and make sure they're in the valleys of the bed grooves.

Once they are, we'll go ahead and mark them, raise the base unit back up, and tighten them down. Next, we'll go ahead and install the end caps onto the base unit, covering up the hardware for the stabilizer strips. Now with that done, we're ready to go ahead and install the head unit onto the bracket. We'll set the head unit in place and take the pins provided to secure it into position, and then put on the safety clips. Next, we'll go ahead and install the handle to the head unit. Take the handle, slide it into position, and then drop the carriage bolt down through it, and secure it with a split lock washer and nut. And just like that, we are completely assembled and secured and ready to hit the road. And that does it for the installation of the Draw-Tite Hi-Rise gooseneck-to-5th-wheel hitch adaptor, part number 9480, on our 2005 Dodge Ram pickup.

Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter by Bulldog, Draw-Tite and Reese - 9480

Average Customer Rating:  4.2 out of 5 stars   (13 Customer Reviews)

Convert your Draw-Tite, Bulldog or B&W gooseneck hitch to a fifth-wheel hitch with this kit. Adapter has round and square gooseneck posts, a 4-way pivoting head for easy trailer hookup, and stabilizer strips for sturdy mounting in your truck bed.

Other than being heavy to set in the truck bed, the hitch is easy to install into a B&W gooseneck and it stayed well secured without any shifting of the base for a 400 mile round trip towing a10k lb trailer. The 4 degree side to side tilt does not seem necessary and it does make it difficult to properly torque the mounting nut. The side to side tilt also adds a good bit of weight. 431910

Not recommended at all in a short box. The hitch sits 5" forward on center axle. Cab clearance is greatly reduced. Hitch doesn't even come close to sitting flat in the truck. Hitch is very sloppy in the Goose Neck receiver. I had to spend a lot of time and money to have the hitch reworked. The only reason I gave a 2 star rating is because of the Great Customer Service at ETrailer!!! Otherwise it would get no stars!!!! 420162


Comments

Clarke,Thank you for your review. This hi-rise adapter is not recommended in a short bed truck. This adapter will not provide enough clearance in tight turning situations. A slider hitch is normally recommended in short bed trucks but Draw-tite does not manufacture a slider version of this adapter. If you have a hide-a-goose setup you can use a convert a ball adapter with an offset. Part number: C5GX1216. This will allow you to use your gooseneck hitch in your short bed truck to tow a 5th wheel. The coupler bolts to your trailers king pin and connects to the gooseneck ball. The offset should give you enough clearance to make tight turns. I have also included a help article for additional reference.

Fit, finish, instructions and overall quality are top notch. Assembly is easy with basic tools. Customer Service here was great too. Because I was in a real rush to get the hitch, they went out of their way to break it up into two shipments that could be handled by UPS vs having it one package that had to come truck freight. As a result, I got it when I needed it. Thank you very much, Larry. 324071

What a wonderful experance I have had working with etrailer. The follow-up and concern to make it right, was over whelming. My wife counted five phone calls, to keep us infromed about a lost box, by UPS. When found the box was danaged and a part was missing. The part was FedX to me next day! I know i will be using etrailer again. 411649

by: Scott T06/03/2017


The reason I didn't rate it higher is it doesn't sit real flat in the bed and bangs around a little when starting and stopping. Otherwise I would be happier if it was easier to remove. 388284

Do you have a question about this Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapter?


  • Gooseneck vs 5th Wheel Hitch for Towing My RV Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • A gooseneck adapter that is designed for towing a fifth-wheel trailer, like the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter, # CAB-C5G, is normally used when a person already has a gooseneck trailer hitch installed in the truck and needs to tow both gooseneck and 5th wheel trailers. These adapters are a good solution, but do not provide as nice a ride when towing a fifth wheel trailer. If your truck does not have a hitch installed I would recommend going with a fifth-wheel...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • Some trailer manufacturers will void a warranty if an adapter is used. This is the biggest con if trying to determine pros and cons. You will need to contact the trailer manufacturer to determine if the trailer warranty will be voided if an adapter is used. If the trailer has a Lippert chassis then I recommend using a Goose Box adapter because when used with a Lippert chassis and pin box, it will not void the warranty. There are 2 Goose Box units available. First is # RP94622. It is...

  • 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...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Options for a Flat Bed Truck with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • The only option that does not require removing the gooseneck hitch would possibly be the Hi-Rise, # 9480. If the gooseneck trailer hitch is a B&W Turnover Ball, Hide-A-Goose by Draw-Tite or Reese or Under-Bed by Bulldog then you can use the Hi-Rise. Otherwise you would need to remove the gooseneck hitch then have a 1/2 inch steel plate welded to the frame by a qualified professional. Then you could use the Reese low-profile hitch # RP30054. I have included a link to a video review and...

  • Will the B and W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Fit a Curt Gooseneck Hitch
  • We have fifth wheel adapter options for Curt gooseneck hitches, but adapters like the Companion or the Hi-Rise will not work with Curt gooseneck hitches. The B and W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch is only compatible with B and W gooseneck hitches, so it will not work with a Curt gooseneck hitch. Turnoverball is actually a trademark of B and W, but Curt does have the Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch, # C-52. If this is the hitch you have, then I recommend using a fifth-wheel-to-gooseneck adapter...

  • Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Trailer Adapter Recommendations and Safety
  • There are actually two possible options for you. Depending on which gooseneck hitch you have, you may be able to use a gooseneck hitch to 5th wheel trailer adapter. Take a look at the Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter, # 9480. This hitch will fit in a Hide-A-Goose hitch by Draw-Tite or Reese. With this option, you will not need to make modifications to the trailer and the 5th wheel hitch can be removed when you need to tow a gooseneck trailer. The Hi-Rise is made...

  • Adapter for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Flip-Over Brand Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • The Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter, # 9480, is designed to only work with B and W Turnover Ball hitches, Hide-A-Goose by Reese or Draw-Tite, or Under-Bed by Bulldog. What you can use with your gooseneck hitch is the Andersen Ranch Hitch, # AM3100. I have included a link to a video review for you. I also recommend the safety chain kit # AM3109. I have also included a link to an FAQ article on towing a 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck trailer hitch.

  • Can a Sidewinder be Used with a Gooseneck Coupler Adapter
  • No, Reese does not recommend the use of any kind of adapter with the Sidewinder Fifth Wheel King Pins or the Fifth Airborne Sidewinder products. If you would like to send me some information about your vehicle and the trailer you will be towing, I will be glad to try to make a recommendation for you that includes a gooseneck adapter.

  • Towing 5th Wheel Camper with Ford F-150 That Has Flip-Over Gooseneck Hitch
  • There are several ways to mate a 5th wheel trailer to a gooseneck hitch. You may want to review the linked article for background on the available options. You can use a Curt X5, part # C16210, to adapt your existing Reese 5th wheel hitch to your F-150 goose ball. This adapter plate will work with your Flip and Store gooseneck hitch and your Reese 5th wheel head and features a black carbide finish.

  • Choosing Between Convert-A-Ball and Reese High-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Adapters
  • If you were only planning on towing a fifth wheel trailer occasionally, but towing a gooseneck the majority of the time, going with the Convert-A-Ball Gooseneck adapter you referenced, part # CAB-C5G would be your best choice. Since you are planning on towing a fifth wheel trailer the vast majority of the time (maybe exclusively) the Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Adapter would be the safer and easier to use alternative.

It does fit the Reese Hide-A-Goose Trailer Hitch, part # 9460 and part # 9461.

If it is a Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose, then the Curt X-5, # 16310, will not fit. If you want to add a 5th wheel trailer hitch, you can use the Hi-Rise Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch, # 9480.

  • No, the B and W Companion hitch # BWRVK3400-5W and the Hide-A-Goose hitch # 9464-57 do not use the same installation kit. They are specific to their respective hitches. For the B and W hitch you will want to get installation kit and gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1313-5W for your 2013 Ram 2500 diesel.

  • We do not recommend using a fifth-wheel-to-gooseneck coupler adapters with air ride pin boxes. The air bags and shocks in the air ride pin boxes allow for additional side to side and front to back movement at the pin box to create a smoother ride. The additional movement will place unwanted stress on adapters that could damage the adapter or the pin box. If you have a BandW Turnover Ball, Hide-A-Goose by Draw-Tite or Reese or and Under-Bed gooseneck hitch by Bulldog, then you may be...

  • Hi-Rise Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Trailer Adapter Recommendation for Towing a 37 ft Travel Trailer
  • I would recommend you install a Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # 9480 in the bed of your truck if you have a B&W Turnover Ball, Hide-A-Goose by Draw-Tite or Reese Under-Bed by Bulldog. This will install into the gooseneck hitch of your vehicle like a gooseneck ball and will allow you to tow your fifth wheel trailer with truck that has a gooseneck hitch. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also.

  • Gooseneck to 5th Wheel or 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Options for a Lifted Truck
  • With a lifted truck, it will be a tight fit, but I may have a couple of options for you. First, take a look at the Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter, # 9480. This will fit a B and W Turnover style gooseneck hitch. The hitch height is adjustable from 14-1/4 inches to 18 inches. You will need to measure from the bottom of the pin box (not the king pin) to the top of the bed to determine if this height is too much or not enough. Another option is a 5th wheel to gooseneck...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for Un-Level Terrain
  • For hitching and unhitching on uneven terrain, the Curt Q24 you mentioned, part # C16245 would be ideal for you. The hitch features a spherical axial bearing that allows the hitch a full 360 degree tilt, not just side-to-side and front-to-back. This will lessen the chance of the hitch binding on the king pin. The Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Hitch Install Bracket Kit you mentioned, part # C16411-204 would be the correct install kit for your truck. In order to install the fifth wheel hitch,...

  • Fifth Wheel Adapter for a Draw Tite Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch
  • I have a solution that could work well for you, but there isn't an adapter exactly like the # 16310 that would fit a Draw Tite turn over Hide-a-Goose. Instead I would recommend the Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # 9480. This will fit in your gooseneck hitch easily and will provide you with a fifth wheel hitch. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-250 with Tow Package
  • The Goose Box will not give a short bed truck additional clearance to make a sharp turns. If your 2012 Ford F-350 has the gooseneck hitch from the factory it would also have the factory pucks for installing a fifth wheel hitch. I attached a help article that details this package. You should see 4 pucks installed in the bed of your truck like in the picture I attached. For that I would recommend the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Hitch part # DM8550024 as it will fit this tow package and...

  • Can an Air-Ride Pin Box Be Used With a Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Hitch Adapter
  • It's not recommended to use a gooseneck adapter with an air ride pin box. The air ride feature allows front to back and side to side movement to cushion shock. This movement would damage the pin box or the adapter. The Reese Goosebox would be an excellent option for you. The Goosebox is an air ride adapter that would replace your existing pin box and would allow you to hitch directly to the gooseneck ball. The Goosebox is only compatible with certain pin box models. The manufacturer...

  • Under Bed Mount 5th Wheel Recommendation for a 2010 Ford F-350 Super Duty with 6 3/4 Foot Bed
  • We have 2 under bed systems that I would recommend for your 2010 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4 door with 6-3/4 foot bed. The first is the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider and Wiring Harness - 18,000 lbs, item # RP30144, along with the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, item # RP30073.

  • Adapter Recommendations to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • There are a couple of options for you to tow the 5th wheel trailer with the gooseneck hitch. If you have a Curt Double-Lock, Flip and Store gooseneck hitch, you could use the Curt X5, # C16210 and put a 5th wheel hitch in the rails. Or if you have a B and W square shank turnover ball hitch, use # 16310. If you do not have either of the gooseneck hitches listed above, you will need to use an adapter on the 5th wheel trailer to tow it with a gooseneck hitch. Rails cannot be installed in...

  • Recommended Adapter To Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer With Gooseneck installed In 2013 Chevrolet Silverado
  • If you have a B&W Turnover Gooseneck Hitch installed in your truck, the best solution is to use a compatible fifth wheel hitch. The hitch I recommend is the B&W Companion, part # BWRVK3500. This slips right into the gooseneck ball hole and features dual jaws that reduce rattle and it has a head that can pivot so that also helps reduce chucking. Using an adapter like # AM3100 or # CAB-C5G will do the job but because they are rigid will not ride as smoothly as the Companion. The...

  • Which Gooseneck to 5th wheel adapter will work with a 06 GMC 3500 Long Bed with Una Goose Gooseneck
  • I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite and he did not have any information on whether or not the Hi-Rise Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch by Bulldog, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch and Reese, part # 9480, would work on a Una-Goose goose neck. I also spoke with my contact at Una-Goose and he recommended you go with a set up like the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, part # AM3100. This adapter will install on the pin box of your fifth wheel pin box and will...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Recessed Gooseneck Hitch in a Flat Bed Truck
  • The pickup bed versus the flat bed does make a difference. The issue is that on your flat bed the ball is recessed and a hitch like # 9480 won't be able to reach. Also the Hi-Rise hitch only works with certain gooseneck hitches. Since your gooseneck hitch ball is recessed then you will need a different type of adapter that attaches to the trailer's pin box, # AM3139. I have included a link to a video review of this adapter for you.

  • I've confirmed with Draw-Tite that their Hi-Rise Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter, part # 9480 is indeed compatible with the # BWGNRK1314 B & W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch. Keep in mind that you'll be limited to the 18K capacity of the Hi-Rise Adapter.

  • Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Adapter that can be Adjusted Over 15 Inches When Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • We carry a couple different gooseneck-to-fifth-wheel coupler adapters that are adjustable greater than 15 inches, but we will first need to determine the compatibility of these adapters with your gooseneck hitch or fifth wheel pin box. The Convert-A-Ball Coupler Adapter, # CAB-C5GX1216, that you referenced is adjustable up to 16 inches and the other option is the Hi-Rise Adapter, # 9480, which is essentially a fifth wheel hitch that works with a gooseneck hitch. This would require you...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Adapter Compatible w/ Reese Hide-A-Goose Under Bed Gooseneck Hitch
  • My Curt representative tells me that they don't offer an X5 adapter model that would be compatible with your Draw-Tite # 9465-54 under bed gooseneck hitch. If you have a long bed truck, the Draw-Tite Hi-Rise Gooseneck to 5th wheel hitch adapter, part # 9480 would work well for you. Another option would be the Reese Goosebox, which would replace the existing 5th wheel's pin box. The Goosebox will allow the 5th wheel to connect directly to the gooseneck ball, without an adapter needed....
