Alot cheaper than a flush mount hitch, I already had a fith wheel mounted. The only things I was worried about was the mount being loose and movement with the ball. I've towed a 25' horse trailer with 3 horses approx 15k, and a 20' lowboy trailer with a small skidsteer and mini Ex approx 25k. The hitch is solid no movement, the handles make a great place to attach safety chains the ball swaps out fast just a circle clip. IMO its makes alot of sense to go this way especially if you plan to get a fithwheel. 124514

We still use our Ford F-350 to tow our trailer. We could no longer could use the 5th wheel attachment in the bed of the pickup. The new goose neck ball fits perfectly on the rails. Easy to install, easy to remove. A perfect companion with gooseneck trailers. ETrailer has everything you would need to outfit your rig. There customer service will go beyond to help you make the right choice. 374782

We recently were interested in ordering the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch from e-trailer.com and wasn't certain that it would fit our Reese rail system. We contacted Kimberly at etrailer.com and she contacted the Reese Manufacturer to confirm that the Trailer Hitch would fit our model. We were extremely satisfied with both the product and the exceptional service. 173272

Arrived on time and works well allowing me to switch from a fifth wheel to a gooseneck quickly. You may have to adjust the trailer hight if you share it with a truck that has the ball in the bed as this will be a little higher. 435110

nice heavy duty unit , ball does spin with a bit of effort,i wonder if i should take the off pull the ball and grease it 431625


Comments

Fred,Thank you for your review.The ball is made to spin a bit to avoid binding with the gooseneck coupler. The hitch ball is not designed for removal but you will need to lubricate the ball with a white grease such as part 58117.

Ask the Experts about this Reese Gooseneck
Do you have a question about this Gooseneck?


  • Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-350 w/ Factory Puck System Towing 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer
  • Although the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079, will not work with the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter, # RP30156, I do have a solution for you. Instead, I recommend going with the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Head Kit, # RP30138, in your 2015 Ford F-350 with the factory puck system. This offers a bolt-in, no drill installation which means you won't have to drill into the frame of your truck. Just one hole in the bed for the gooseneck...

Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate # 49080 Curt Spyder 25K Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails # 16085 Reese Above-Bed 25K Gooseneck Hitch, part # RP58079 Any of these gooseneck plates will fit in the rails supplied with the Reese Pro Series 15K fifth-wheel hitch, part # PS30128.

  • Can Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Hitch Be Installed in Truck Bed At Same Time
  • There is not a bracket kit that would allow both a fifth wheel and a gooseneck hitch to be installed together, however there are solutions that might allow you to swap back and forth, depending on what you currently have installed. If you have nothing installed in your truck bed at this time, you can use the # RP30035 kit you mentioned to install 5th wheel rails. Install the 5th wheel into the rails when needed, and when you need to tow a gooseneck, remove the fifth wheel and install...

  • Where to Attach Safety Chains When Using a Gooseneck Plate in 5th Wheel Rails
  • I do have a solution but I do not have a state by state breakdown of which ones will allow you to attach the safety chains directly to the gooseneck plate such as # RP58079. The safe bet is to just assume that none of the states allow it. Then you could use safety-chain attachment # RP50223 which will install on the rails.

  • Fit of Reese # RP58079 Above-Bed Gooseneck Hitch in Bed-Mounted DSP Fifth Wheel Rails
  • The gooseneck hitches we offer that pin into the bed mounted fifth wheel rails are compatible with industry standard fifth wheel rails. The Reese Above -Bed Goosneck Hitch you referred to, part # RP58079 will fit bed rails that have slots that measure 22 inches apart center to center measured front-to-back and 10 inches apart center to center side-to-side. The Husky # HT31368 or the Pro Series # 49080 have the same tab dimensions. I did some research, and found that DSP has used two...

  • How Much Clearance is Needed Between the Bed Rails and Trailer of a Gooseneck Trailer Setup
  • They say 4-6 inches is the amount of clearance you will want between the bed rails of your truck to the trailer. Since you said you live in the hills you might want to try and be on the high end of that to be safe.

  • Will Rails For Reese 16K Fifth Wheel Handle The Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079
  • The Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch - 25,000 lbs, # RP58079, is rated for 25,000 lbs. and the rails for your Reese 16K Fifth Wheel hitch are rated for 25,000 lbs. The towing capacity will be determined by what the gross towing capacity is on your 2005 Dodge Ram 3500. The Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079 will not fit on your rails at the same time as your Reese 16K Fifth Wheel hitch. You will need to use one or the other as the legs on the Reese 16 K hitch will...

  • Handle Location and Purpose of U-Shaped Plates that Come with Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079
  • The safety chain loops that also act as handles are not pictured, but when installed, they will be to the sides of the narrowest part of the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079. The u-shaped plates are actually spacers that fit between the installation rails, # RP30035, and the bed of your truck to give the system more strength and support. If you do not already have compatible rails, they are required for installation and are sold separately.

  • Adapting 5th Wheel Rails to Tow Gooseneck Trailer
  • I am not completely sure which fifth wheel hitch you have. If you have the Reese # RP30051, which uses the industry standard fifth wheel hitch mounting rails, the # RP58079 gooseneck hitch you referenced would work absolutely perfectly for you. To determine if your bed rails are industry standard, compare the distances of the mounting slots to the photo I have edited for you. To be compatible with the Reese RP58079, your rails should have slots that are 22 inches apart front-to-back...

  • Adapter Recommendation for a Flatbed Truck with Gooseneck to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • I think the easiest/best option for you at this point would be to go with a fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter like part # CAB-C5G. This will install onto the pin box of your trailer and will allow your trailer to be towed by the gooseneck hitch in your 1997 Dodge Ram 3500 flat bed. This way you are not permanently modifying your truck or your trailer and you will still be able to safely tow your trailer. I attached a review video and installation instructions for this adapter for you...

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Rail to Gooseneck Hitch Adapter # RP58079 Recommendation for a 1996 C2500 Chevy
  • The Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Adapter # RP58079 that you referenced should install in the fifth wheel rails you have in the bed of your 1996 Chevy Truck and provide you with a gooseneck hitch. My sister uses this product in her truck and it works well. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out also.

  • Height Above Truck Bed of Reese Above-Bed Rail Mounted Gooseneck Adapter Plate # RP58079
  • The plate itself is 3 inches thick. A standard bed rail is 1-1/4 inch thick, so when mounted in a standard bed rail, the top of the plate would be 4-1/4 inches above the upper corrugation of the bed floor, as shown in the photo I have edited for you. The hitch itself is rated at 25,000 lbs, and a pin weight capacity of 6,250 lbs, but you will be limited to the capacity of your truck if it is lower.

  • Gooseneck Adapter for a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado Duramax Towing a 1990 Alpenlite 29.5 DL
  • Towing a fifth-wheel trailer with a 6 foot bed truck and gooseneck hitch will normally require the use of an offset adapter, like the Ranch Hitch Offset Adapter, # AM3139, that you referenced, to allow turning clearance when in tight situations. I attached a drawing that I put together to show you how to measure to determine if an adapter is needed or not. You can add 8 inches to the clearance measurement with the # AM3139 adapter. If an offset is not needed then I would recommend going...

  • 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...

  • Will a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Work on a 2009 Dodge Ram 2500 With a Short Bed
  • There are several different gooseneck trailer hitches that can be used on the 2009 Dodge 2500 Pickup. The Remove-A-Ball Gooseneck, part # 6300-4435, and the Fold Down Gooseneck Series, part # 8339-4435, are very good systems that do not require drilling or bed removal and will fit all models of the Dodge truck. There is also an option to use standard fifth wheel rails and a gooseneck hitch mount, like gooseneck hitch # RP58079 and custom fifth-wheel rail kit # RP50140-58. If your...

  • Will the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079 Fit In Place of a 20K Reese Hitch
  • The Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079, is designed to fit in Reese above the bed rails that a 5th wheel hitch would normally fit in. As long as the mounting slot distance between the rails (where the hitch will attach) is approximately 22 inches, and the side to side distance between the inner most mounting slots is approximately 10 inches on center, it will fit. I have included a link to the installation details for you. The hitch itself is rated for 25K but if the...

  • Recommended Custom Install Kit For 5th Wheel Rails On 2016 GMC 2500 And Gooseneck Adapter
  • For the easiest install on your 2016 GMC 2500 Denali, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56001-53. These rails are 48 inches long and make it a little easier to install the rails to the custom brackets. If you want the traditional 43 inch length rails, the custom bracket kit I recommend for your truck is # RP50066-58. These kits come with all the hardware needed for installation. They require no drilling...

  • Are Additional Parts Needed to Install the Reese Gooseneck Hitch # RP58079 on a 2005 Ford F-350
  • If the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Hitch, # RP58079, will fit in the rails that you currently have installed on your 2005 Ford F-350, then you will not need any additional parts. The mounting tabs on this hitch measure side to side 10 inches from center to center and front to back 21-15/16 inches center to center. You will want to measure the mounting holes in your rails to see if this hitch will fit. This hitch is designed to fit standard fifth wheel base rails from Curt, Draw-Tite,...

  • Installing Lil Rocker Fifth Wheel Hitch on 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
  • The Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit # RP30035 will work with both your 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and your RBW Li'l Rocker Fifth Wheel Hitch. The universal rails will require you to drill into the frame of your vehicle. For an easier install, I recommend looking at the Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # RP56001-53. These rails are custom fit to the Silverado and will install into factory holes in the frame. To tow a gooseneck trailer, the easiest type of adapter...

  • Can Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Hitch # RP58079 in 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 Tow 32-Foot Cattle Trailer
  • The Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Hitch # RP58079 mounts in your existing 5th wheel base rails to allow towing a gooseneck-equipped trailer. This unit has a vertical load limit (tongue weight) capacity of 6,250-lbs and a gross towing weight rating of 25,000-lbs. Fifth wheel base rails are not specifically load-rated; the same base rails will be used with a 15K hitch and with a 20K hitch. The limiting factor for pulling your cattle trailers will be your Ram tow rating. According to my...

  • 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...

  • Is The Hitch Ball Welded To The Mount Plate On the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch #RP58079?
  • The Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch - 25,000 lbs, # RP58079, has a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball that is held in place with a snap ring. This design allows the hitch ball to rotate reducing binding with the gooseneck coupler. It has a nice powder coat finish to resist corrosion and the hitch ball is a durable, heat treated ball. If you are looking for a welded option, you may be interested in the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate for Fifth Wheel Rails by Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch and...

  • Will Reese Gooseneck Plate 58079 Fit Adapter for 2014 Ram 2500 with OEM 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • The Reese gooseneck trailer hitch for above the bed 5th wheel rails, # RP58079, will not fit the adapter for Rams with OEM 5th wheel prep package # RP30154. The issue is that the adapter only has the outer most sets of slots for mounting a hitch. The Reese gooseneck hitch fits in the inner most set which are not present on the adapter. The Curt Spyder, # 16085, is the only one that would fit. When using a 5th wheel hitch you will want to go with a slider since you have a short bed truck....

  • What is the Mounting Tab Spacing for Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • The center to center distance between the mounting tabs on the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079, is 10 inches. Front to back it is 21-13/16 inches. On a set of Reese rails, it will fit into the center most set of mounting holes. I have included a link to the installation details for you to view. If you need a 5th wheel installation kit for your 2004 Chevy Silverado, you can use # RP50064-58 (for all models except an 8 foot bed 1500 HD, use # C16418-204 if you have this...

  • Towing a Gooseneck Trailer with a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch on a 2002 Ford F450 Flatbed
  • The 2 gooseneck hitches that you have referenced are designed to fit in above the bed 5th wheel rails that the Reese low profile hitch # RP30054 does not fit into. The low profile hitch requires a custom installation and there should be a 1/2 inch thick steel plate under the bed and attached to the truck frame and this is what the hitch is attached to. In order to use the hitch with a gooseneck trailer I recommend replacing the inner tube of the gooseneck coupler, if it can be removed,...

  • Is 7-3/4 inches of Clearance From Truck Bed Rail to Gooseneck Hitch Overhang Adequate
  • We recommend 6 inches as the minimum clearance between bed rails and trailer overhang so your clearance of 7-3/4 inches would be just fine. The picture you sent in does trouble me. If that is a picture that shows your trailer attached to your gooseneck hitch it would appear you have some problems. For one the gooseneck hitch is way too far behind the rear axle (it is supposed to be right above rear axle) and the nose of your trailer looks very nose high.
