I haven’t had a chance to use this yet but it is built very solid and definitely has some weight to it. I have no doubt that this hitch is everything you could expect from a REESE gooseneck application, if you break this you have bigger problems than just a broken hitch.




by:

The hitch works well, but be aware that the height of the ball is much higher than a regular in bed gooseneck hitch.




by:

So far so good. Decent instructions. Arrived quickly. Easyish installation. Happy with the product. Excited to use it soon.




by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

1st time ordering from etrailer. I received exactly what I ordered and it arrived when they said it would. They followed up with me to make sure the gooseneck hitch fit on my 5th wheel rails, and made sure I was happy. I will be doing business again with etrailer They have the best pricing on what I need, timely delivery , no damage, no hassles.

Very nice quality piece, tight fit, hammer the pins in go.

Fit was very snug. Perfect.




by:

I purchased a gooseneck hitch. It arrived earlier than expected. I installed it with my existing rails from my 5th wheel.hitch. It worked great. Dana 's help was excellent. I highly recommend etrailer.




by:

Works well, as designed. Pins were a bit hard to pin in. althought could be placement of the rails very nice quality and able to convert to my Fithwheel and Gooseneck quite easily.




by:

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.




by:

Great product. Fit like a charm. 10 min. And I was pulling my trailer. Fast delivery. Very happy. Would highly recommend E-trailer.

Still very happy with product.

by:

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


Comments
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

  • 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 truck...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 on...

  • 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 research...

  • Will the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
    The Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # RP58079, can be installed using any industry standard 5th Wheel base rails. This gooseneck hitch will connect to the base rails using included pull pins and clips. This hitch has built-in safety chain loops and has a gross towing weight 25,000 lbs.

  • 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.

  • Installation of Base Rails on a 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 with a Custom Made Flatbed
    Yes, you can use the base rails you initially had installed on your 2008 Dodge Ram pickup, but you will likely need to have custom brackets made so your base rails can fit properly on your flatbed. The reason you may need custom brackets made is flat beds tend to sit higher off the truck frame than a standard bed. If this is the case with your bed, the current frame brackets will not be tall enough to attach the base rails. Also, if your bed is taller than your old bed, you will need...

  • How Does Adding Cargo Affect Trailer Tongue Weight
    The tongue weight of your horse trailer will certainly increase when the horses are on board but by how much will just depend on where exactly they're situated inside the trailer (along with their actual weights). Tongue weight refers to the vertical weight that's being pushed onto the the bed of your truck via the gooseneck ball. So the further up towards the front of the trailer the horses are, the more weight they're going to add to this particular number. If you already have industry-standard,...

  • Recommended Adapter for Towing Gooseneck Trailer with Reese 5th Wheel Base Rails
    As long as the base rails for your Reese 22K Classic 5th Wheel Hitch are standard, above-bed rails, I recommend using the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # RP58079 to tow your gooseneck trailer. This is designed to mount directly to existing fifth-wheel rails and will provide a 2-5/16 inch ball and a towing capacity of 25,000 pounds. I have attached the written installation instructions and a video demonstration on this product that you can also check out.

  • 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.

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...

    When comparing the difference between these two gooseneck hitches you will find they have a lot of similar features.

  • 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...

If you are looking for a similar gooseneck plate that attaches to 5th wheel base rails but with a removable hitch ball I recommend taking a look at the Reese Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # RP58079.

  • Troubleshooting Reese Fifth Wheel Rail to Gooseneck Adapter with Play in Ball
    You'd want to inspect the hitch ball and the base of your # RP58079 that you have to determine if there is any wear. If the ball shank seems worn then you'd want to replace it with the part # 19310 that you referenced. If the base is worn you'd need to replace the entire part # RP58079. If the base is worn you'd want to verify too that you aren't exceeding the 25k capacity of the plate. Welding the ball would not be ideal either as it will void the warranty of the adapter.
