Video Transcript for etrailer Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters - Adapts Trailer - KPG5-R30IP Review

Today we're going to take a look at the round tube gooseneck to fifth wheel trailer coupler adapter with a 30,000 pound weight capacity. This gooseneck to fifth wheel adapter will let you tow your gooseneck trailer with a fifth wheel hitch. It has the round innertube here that'll fit most standard round gooseneck outer tubes and it has the king pin at the bottom here that'll slide into a fifth wheel hitch. It you notice, it is an adjustable height. You can see it's a four hole design to fit your application. It is a sturdy steel construction.

If you notice right down here it has the heavy gusseting between the tube and the plate. It is a raw finish. This is also SAE J2738 compliant. A few specs on this. The tube diameter, which will be measured outside to outside since this is the innertube. If we put a ruler on that, you can see it's right at four inches for the tube diameter.

Now it does have the range or vertical adjustment, I mentioned the four hole design. The range, we'll measure from the center of this bottom hole to the center of the top hole and it's going to be right at eight inches, so it's got an eight inch vertical adjustment range. The measurement between each hole, center to center is going to be right at 2 11/16. The pin hole diameter, this large hole here, is 7/8 of an inch. The plate is a square plate, so it's going to measure 10 inches by 10 inches.

The king pin at the very bottom that slides into your fifth wheel hitch is going to be an industry standard two inch diameter king pin and the weight capacity on this is 30,000 pounds. That should do it for the review on the round tube gooseneck to fifth wheel trailer coupler adapter with a 30,000 pound weight capacity.

I was told about your website by an RV dealer, I was looking for a goose neck to fifth wheel adapter for a horse trailer I had just purchased. I found what I was looking for at etrailer and ordered it, it was delivered in a couple days and the piece looked great and worked wonderful I was very impressed with the short turnaround time and would highly recommend your business 511264

Prompt delivery. Have not towed with the adapter yet, but product appears to be very heavy duty with thick walled pipe and very sturdy welds. I am anxious to test it. This product allows me to use a fifth wheel hitch to haul my 34' camper trailer and quickly convert to haul my 35' gooseneck trailer with my tractor and implements. 374168


Comments
I could not be more pleased with my kingpin adapter. It exceeds all my expectations and makes the conversion a simple process. My brother and me farm together and he is very impressed with the adapter. Others I have shown it to agree. I keep your site bookmarked for future reference.

Great item: saves so much time hooking/unhooking! No need to jack it up or perfectly line up ball. Works great and price is good. Definitely a life saver for me in my more "mature" age! I haven't found anything negative with this as of yet so very happy with my purchase. 810088

I ordered this item and within 2 days it had arrived. Installing it didn’t take over 10 minutes! I use my truck to work during the week and pull my 5th wheel on the weekend! Only thing I’d recommend purchasing is a lube plate to put on the hitch, that way you don’t have to deal with a greasy mess! I’d recommend this hitch to anyone! 772297

- KPG5-R30IP
by:

Heavier/stouter than I expected it to be. Fits well. 4 stars instead of 5 because it is raw steel, not painted, primed, or anything, and it was covered with a light oil, I presume for rust preventative, but that made it messy to handle, and paint will not stick to the oil as delivered. Very well built, and strong, though. It will just require some prep before I paint it, which I hadn't counted on. 739921

  • Base Plate Size And Capacity Differences On The Ram Gooseneck To 5th Wheel Coupler Adapter
    I contacted the manufacturer on your behalf regarding your question. Per Ram, the plate is the same 10"x10" size on the # KPG5-R25-IP and the # KPG5-R30IP. Our review video also had it measured the same. The capacity difference increase for the 30k comes by way of the welded belly band around the bottom of the outer tube. The 30k capacity also comes from the .275" inner tube wall thickness vs the .24" inner tube wall thickness on the 25K. Included are video resources for more...

  • Can Lube Plate Be Used with Ram Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # KPG5-R30IP
    You can absolutely use a 10" lube plate such as the Curt # 16721 with the Ram Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # KPG5-R30IP to keep the hitch head lubricated and scratch free. You may just want to take a look at the manual for your particular 5th wheel hitch, as some will note a maximum thickness on a lube plate like this. If you can tell me what model hitch you have I can also check this for you.

  • Best Gooseneck Trailer to Fifth Wheel Adapter Solution for Towing with Short Bed Truck
    You are definitely on the right track to coming up with the best solution to allow you to tow your fifth wheel trailer and gooseneck trailer. Since you have a short bed truck it is important that you have turning clearance which converting the gooseneck to a king pin does allow you to still use the slider hitch and have the clearance you need. Since you have the standard 4 inch tube on your trailer the king pin adapter part # KPG5-R30IP is the way to go. This will fit in place of what...

  • Safety Chains Required When Using An Adapter to Tow Gooseneck Trailer w/ A 5th Wheel Hitch
    I've spoken with a few of my towing industry contacts, who tell me that even if you use an adapter like the # KPG5-R30IP, safety chains should still be used. If the fifth wheel hitch you are using is compatible with industry standard bed rails, then you can use part # RP50223 to provide an attachment point for the safety chains. To prevent the chains from snagging on anything, you'll need to ensure that the safety chains are long enough to allow the trailer to make turns, but no longer...

  • Towing a Gooseneck Trailer with a 5th Wheel Hitch and Availability of Adapter for 3-3/4" Inner Tube
    While we do not have an adapter that is 3-3/4 inches in diameter I do have a couple of possible solutions for you. First, you could replace both the inner and outer tubes using # KPG5-R30. A certified professional welder would have to perform this installation. This is a viable solution if you will be towing the trailer with a 5th wheel hitch all the time. Second, if your truck has industry standard 5th wheel rails you could use a gooseneck plate instead, such as # 49080.

    If your existing Reese bed mounted fifth wheel rails have slots in them that are 10 inches apart (center to center, side to side) and 22 inches apart (center to center, front to back), a rail mounted gooseneck ball like part # RP58079 would work great for you. Using the rail mounted ball would be a simpler solution than the # KPG5-R30IP you referenced, which would require you to use a fifth wheel hitch.

  • Does Ram Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Adapter KPG5-R30 Require Professional Welding
    Yes, when it comes to round gooseneck couplers, the industry standard is a 4 inch OD inner tube and 4.5 inch OD outer tube. The Ram Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Trailer Coupler Adapter # KPG5-R30 you referenced includes both the inner and the outer tubes, ideal for people needing to replace a damaged coupler or for someone looking to fabricate a trailer without an existing coupler.

  • Recommended Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter
    It sounds like your 5th wheel trailer already has what it needs and you just need the adapter for the Ram Gooseneck if I understand correctly. If your gooseneck hitch has a round tube, then I recommend the Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Trailer Coupler Adapter # KPG5-R30IP. If it has the square tube, then I recommend the Ram Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Trailer Coupler Adapter Inner Tube - Square - 30,000 lbs # KPG5-Q30IP which has a 4 inch tube. Both options have a plate that is 9-7/8 by 9-7/8 inches....

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails and Gooseneck Conversion for 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 with 6.5 Foot Bed
    For your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Short box, the design of your gooseneck trailer will dictate whether you need an offset hitch ball or a slider hitch with a gooseneck adapter like # KPG5-R30IP or # KPG5-Q30IP. I've also attached the page to many other options that will adapt a gooseneck to work with a sliding 5th wheel hitch. A great option for a gooseneck trailer with a short box truck is the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler - 2-5/16" Ball - 10" Offset - 24,000 lbs # BWTEXA4200 to...

However, if the outer tube on your trailer is not 4-1/2" diameter then you will need both, the Ram Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Trailer Coupler Adapter part # KPG5-R30.
