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.

It's been a great hitch, worked just as it was supposed too. Easy to install. Unfortunately I recently bought a different trailer and this hitch will not work with it. So now I have to sell this hitch and buy another one. 628883

We have put over 10,000 miles on our trailer this year. Easy in and out of truck with positive hook ups everytime. We also had a friend borrow our camper. We moved the hitch to their truck and within minutes they were ready to go 578662

Very pleased the the Draw-Tite 5th wheel hitch. Easy in/easy out by myself. Have an electric hoist in my shop, easily store the the hitch in the overhead when not in use. Like the idea of no additional holes in the bed for a 5th wheel hitch. Have been using it for a year, no problems. All the components are more than adequate for the expected loading. I would recommend it to anyone that needs a 5th wheel hitch. 545684

The product was good the people at etrailer we're great.. now for the shipping the shipping sucked UPS I would never use them again every time I got the boxes they were torn up looks like they went through a meat grinder in fact I had to send back the first order cuz we didn't know if all the parts were there then when I got the second order it was just as bad. 490134

Straightforward instructions and easy install. Worked fine and handled our 11k lbs fiver with no problems. Got to destination, took hitch off and I can again use my gooseneck ball and/or have full use of the bed w/out any fiver hitch rails. Highly recommended 436857

by:

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.

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

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

by:

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

  • Comparing Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rail Adapters and Compatibility with Draw-Tite Gooseneck
  • The differences between the Curt X5 adapters is what they will fit. X5 adapter # C16220 fits Curt EZr Double-Lock gooseneck hitches. And X5 adapter # C16210 fits Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store gooseneck hitches such as # C60720. The biggest difference to note is the shank from the bottom of the adapter is a different length.

  • 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...

  • Can Gooseneck Adapter Work With Rotating Pin Box?

You will need to use a standard fifth wheel hitch in your truck; if you let me know the year, make and model I would be happy to make a recommendation for you.

  • Yes, to use the Draw-Tite Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch # 9480 referenced in your question on your 2012 F-250 you will need to use the thinner strips from the Stabilizer Strip Kit # 58438. This will allow the hitch to sit properly between the corrugations of your Ford truck bed for it to secure to the gooseneck hole. I have attached an image from the Hi-Rise instructions manual to clarify this as well.

The handle/locking Pin of the gooseneck hitch should not be able to be released when tightened."
