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.

Great products great prices always on time or early! Product is Exactly as stated in the ad!

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!


Comments
The product is holding up well and works great. It is very convenient being able to switch from my camper to my gooseneck without having the change the hitch out!

I ordered a 30k gooseneck to kingpin conversion for a 40 foot heavy hay trailer. I received my order early. Upon inspection, I was pleased with the construction and then mounted it. it attaches to my single axle road tractor easily. it also provides better stability than the other options available. I am a first time customer and will likely be a repeat customer.

It lets me use the trailer behind a semi; the load is less stress on the semi that on the 1.5 ton flatbed trucks.

The holes that were drilled in the shaft of the part was not lined up straight they where diagonal and made the plate not useable

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.


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.

  • 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.

  • 5th Wheel Slider Hitch Adapter For Gooseneck Trailer
    You will need to lock out the sliding function on your Pull Right 5th wheel hitch to use the Ram Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Trailer Coupler Adapter item # KPG5-R30IP. If you can not lock out your slider than I recommend the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails Item # 16085. This adapter mounts to industry standard 5th wheel rails, has a 2-5/16" trailer ball, comes with safety chain attachments, and also includes pins and clips for rail attachment.

  • 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...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Mounted Gooseneck Hitch for 2003 Chevy Silverado
    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. I've provided a diagram showing the measurements I mentioned above, so you can...

  • 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.

  • 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 Adapters to Tow Gooseneck Trailer With 5th Wheel Hitch
    So you're wanting a king pin adapter that would take the place of your gooseneck coupler, is that correct? If that's the case, the best way to do that wouldn't be to add a pin box. You'd want to use a king pin adapter instead. Attempting to use an actual pin box would require lots of fabrication and engineering work to ensure the assembly would have the proper weight rating, as well as achieving the proper height so the trailer is towed level.

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.
