Wow, fast delivery and fits snug in the rails. Very impressed with adaptor and customer service. We use it to pull a 16 ft. Livestock trailer. Way better then a bumper pull for us. 472317

I have been an E trailer customer for over 8 years now. I was not surprised when my hitch showed up ahead of schedule and installed with ease. Great work from a great company. 471447

Very very pleased worked perfectly with my rail system and is super easy to install. Very fast delivery with just the free delivery ordered on 4/13 and received it 4/17.. only thing i will say is its a little taller then i thought it would be but on a non lifted truck there would be completely no problem my truck does have a lift so does make the trailer sit more unlevel then a flat bed mount would but im still extremely pleased with it... will definitely use this company again for anything i need... 497547

I only used this product one time -- and it worked great. For the money, you can't beat it! It is so much easier to handle than a fifth wheel hitch (and much cheaper too). Unfortunately for me, I realized during this one use that my old Ford V-10 wasn't adequately capable of pulling a large fifth wheel trailer (converted to a gooseneck) up steep or long hills , so I sold the truck for a new diesel. I later sold this hitch... The only problem is that the ball surface rusted after this one use. Otherwise, the paint and finish were perfect after a year outside. 597436

Somehow the hitch and the bolts made it but I am not sure how. The packaging was crazy. Holes in it then it had been wrapped and stapled with cardboard all around. The delivery company left it in a yard swing in my front yard. I just happen to see it. No note on the door or anything. I have no idea how long it had been there. This is no reflection on etrailer because you guys are great and were a wonderful help to me in getting me what I need. I really appreciate you all and will do business with you again and tell others to also! Thanks a million! 226129

This is the greatest hitch! Easy In - Easy Out! not so heavy that I cannot install or remove all by myself. It was the most perfect decision for us!

The item is the perfect match for my recievers in the bed of my truck. The customer service is fantactic and knowledgable of their products and the item was delivered a day earlier than expected. Purchasing this product saved me $500. A local retailer who tried to sell me a similar product for $800 just for the hitch.The box the hitch came in was torn open in four areas but luckily all the hardware was still in the box upon delivery and it dropped into the recievers with alittle banging from my mallet. Thanks. 52679

I bought the B&W turnover ball hitch for my pickup from these guys almost twelve years ago and it's nice to see they're still in business and still providing great service! This time I went for a Cur gooseneck adapter to go on the fifth wheel rails already in the truck we bought. I ordered on a Sunday and it was delivered midday on Wednesday in Vt. Very good packaging with a second outer box with handles to facilitate carrying the heavy hitch. The actual hitch plate looks really well made and the price is really great. I would highly recommend these guys for quality, speed, service and good value. 226114

I purchased the Curt Spyder Hitch for our GMC 3500 truck to pull a 24 ft stock combo horse trailer. The rails were already in the truck when we bought it. Easy to install and take off when not needed. Pulls great. etrailer had the best price, and has great service. Very pleased with product. We needed a hitch that was centered and not offset for our truck and this was the one. 457675

The hitch is very good quality. I'm looking forward to having the option of using the goose neck hitch on the same rails as the fifth wheel hitch. The packaging was not sufficient for shipping. I received the package the day after ordering, which was great. The box was torn in several places and the Styrofoam was all busted up. The FedEx delivery guy noted the condition, and the hitch was in perfect shape. I'm glad there were no loose parts in the box. 200552

I have a 5th wheel RV trailer and purchased a Dump trailer. I wanted a Gooseneck Dump Trailer for the easy maneuverability and towing. This looked like a solution that would allow me to tow either with my truck. When it came I was impressed. It is extremely well made. Drops right into the rails for my normal 5th wheel hitch. Allows an easy transition between the normal pin box vs a Gooseneck type hookup. I couldn't be happier with its quality or performance. Purchased from etrailer as their price was the best I found. Delivery was fast. Overall doing business with etrailer was a positive experience for me. If all their products are this good I will buying other things from them in the future. 562121

Definitely 5 stars for this company. I received my order BEFORE scheduled delivery. I was a little skeptical because the price was so much lower than the other places I searched. The product came as advertised and I installed it myself (I'm just a girl!) Thank you Etrailer Corporation and I look forward to doing more business with you in the future. 556810

I bought this gooseneck Hitch back in 2016 I can't say I've used it everyday of the week but I do use it pull a cattle trailer occasionally and I've used it to pull 20,000lbs of silage bales out of the field and it's held up great no stress points or anything showing paint has held up great. It's a very heavy built hitch I would deffenitly recommend it to anyone that has the rails in there truck and is doin pretty stressful towing. It also sits the trailer up a lil higher and I love that really helps with twisting and turns. 530136

Received my hitch in just a few days, haven’t used it yet. I’m glad products like this exist so I can hook up to a gooseneck. I chose this one because I have curt rails and I like the spring loaded safety chain loops. 725421

Etrailer processed the order the day I placed it and received the hitch within a week. The hitch had good reviews and was easy to install. It's very well built and precisely fit onto my existing Reese rails that I use for my fifth wheel. Highly recommend the hitch and Etrailer. 720411

I love this hitch! It's light enough that I can take it in and out by myself but sturdy enough that I don't worry about hitching up my gooseneck horse trailer to it. Works out perfectly for us! This gives us the option of towing our gooseneck or popping the hitch out and putting our 5th wheel set up in. 679712

Bought this because I bought a horse trailer and needed to bring it home. Great product. Even the guy I bought the trailer from was surprised at how low it set in the bed when he had seen others that were higher. There was no jerking from it like you get with a normal 5th wheel hooked up. This felt like a regular king pin. Highly recommend it. 643467

I installed this in minutes and it is just what I needed because my travel trailer fits over this hitch at same time so I always have this hitch in truck. It looks good to me also. It is a solid made product so I have no Cons for this unit. I would recommend this for any one that does not want to change his fifth wheel rail type mounts to the expenses hid away hitch to use a goose mount hitch. 640460

Ask the Experts about this Curt Gooseneck

Do you have a question about this Gooseneck?


  • Height of Curt Bent Plate Gooseneck Hitch Versus The Curt Spyder Goosneck Hitch
  • The Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails # 16085 sits 7-1/2 inches above the rails at the highest point. The Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails - 3" Offset # 16055 will sit lower with the top of the ball 5 inches from the top of the rails. I've attached some measurements to assist.

  • If you had a fifth wheel rail kit installed in the bed of your truck that the B and W Patriot hitch part # BWRVK3255 fit we have the Curt Spyder adapter part # 16085 will fit the rails and give you a gooseneck hitch ball in the bed of your truck. Reason being that the Patriot hitch is designed to fit the industry standard fifth wheel rails that most hitches out there are designed to fit. This is what the Spyder is also designed to fit too.

  • Adapters to Allow Towing Gooseneck Trailer with 5th Wheel Hitch and Base Rails

All of these 5th wheel rail gooseneck adapters are standardized to fit into any brand of 5th wheel base rails.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Base Rail Adapter for Ford F-150 with Short Bed
  • You could use an offset gooseneck ball like the Curt # 16055 on your 2017 Ford F-150 but you'll want to make sure that the ball sits in front of the rear axle and not on top or behind it. It's likely that your rails are already set up so that you've got the center of your 5th wheel hitch head in the correct position in relation to the axle, so using a rail adapter with an offset isn't the best solution for a short bed truck. I recommend using the Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch #...

  • The Curt Spyder Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails, 25,000 lbs GTW # 16085 is a fit for any industry standard rails like those for your Curt Sliding 5th wheel hitch. You do not need to buy any more parts to make this function with your above bed 5th wheel rails on your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500. The safety chain loops are integrated and the pins and clips are also included. You will want to be aware of your limited turning clearance due to your short bed, but this hitch will work...

  • To Center Rail Bolts have to be Installed to Reach Max Capacity for Curt Gooseneck Hitch Plate
  • The rating of the Curt gooseneck hitch plate # 16055 doesn't change if the center bolts are not installed on the 5th wheel rails. However since the Curt gooseneck plate mounts to the inner-most set of slots on the rails the center bolts would help with stability, especially if and when the trailer coupler pulls up on the ball while traveling. Many 5th wheel rail kits use the center bolts already but if yours does not then I do recommend it. Another option is to use a gooseneck plate...

This sliding 5th wheel hitch connects to your factory rail kit using the Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider - Ram Towing Prep Package # C16022 or the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package - 25,000 lbs # RP30154.

  • Availabliltiy of a 8 Inch Offset Gooseneck Hitch
  • I can help you find a gooseneck (hitch) OPTION with an offset for your 2012 Chevrolet Silverado. For your 8 inch offset need, I would recommend the B&W Extend-a-Goose Coupler # BWTEXA4200 in conjunction with the Curt Spider 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter # 16085. This will give you 10 inches of clearance between your truck cab and trailer. According to my contact the B&W and Curt Spider are compatible because the Spider has a standard 2-5/16 inch ball that the coupler requires. Unfortunately,...

  • Comparing the Curt Spyder and Pro Series Gooseneck Trailer Hitches for 5th Wheel Rails
  • First, I have included a link to all of the gooseneck hitches we carry that fit in 5th wheel rails. The Curt Spyder, # 16085, has a low profile design and it is heavier than the Pro Series plate style hitch # 49080. Besides that, there really are not a lot of differences. The big advantage that the Pro Series hitch has is that it can be oriented so that the ball is closer to the back of the truck for more clearance when towing with a short bed truck. For me, I like the Pro Series...

  • Recommended Puck Adapter for 2015 GMC 2500 with 4-Puck Factory Look System
  • Based on the year, the system is most likely not a factory system. GMC and Chevy did not have a factory puck system until 2016 and it included the gooseneck puck so there were 5 holes. If you have the 4 pucks it most likely is the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30868 which is confirmed to fit your truck.

  • It really sounds like your gooseneck hitch is designed for a 3 inch gooseneck ball. I know you said that you attached to your friends B and W hitch, but B and W offers a 3 inch ball # BWGNXA2025. The 3 inch setup is less common but it is still seen out there. If your trailer is larger it is very possible that you need a 3 inch ball. Which there are no adapters like the Spyder that have 3 inch balls. This would call for the replacement of your coupler or the install of a gooseneck hitch...

The adapter # RP30156 does not have the inner most set of holes so it will not work. There is a special gooseneck hitch that fits directly into the puck system on the 2011 and newer Ford trucks with the factory 5th wheel prep package. It is # RP30845.

  • Recommendations for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Short Bed Truck with a Gooseneck Hitch
  • Since you have a short bed truck I would not recommend you use a fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter to tow your RV. The problem will be that you will not have enough clearance to make 90 degree turns with the RV because of the lack of clearance between the front of the trailer and the cab of your truck. Some fifth wheel trailers do not recommend the use of adapters so you will want to check the owners manual of the trailer as well. Honestly the best recommendation I could give you would...

  • Can Short Bed Trucks Tow Gooseneck Trailers
  • The one really big downside to gooseneck towing is that there isn't a great solution for short bed truck clearance unlike fifth wheel towing. With fifth wheel hitches you can use a slider hitch and have the clearance issue handled. With gooseneck towing there isn't really anything you can do. The only way it's possible is if the nose of the gooseneck trailer is tapered to help with the turning clearance. The Spyder part # 16085 does fit industry standard fifth wheel rails like you have...

  • Compatibility of Curt Spyder Gooseneck Adapter with Husky Fifth Wheel Rails
  • The Curt Spyder Gooseneck Adapter Plate is compatible with Valley fifth wheel install rails, and Husky rails were manufactured by Valley. It is a fairly safe bet that the Adapter Plate will most likely be compatible with your rails. You can confirm this by comparing the spacing of the slots on your existing rails to those shown in the photo I provided. If the center-to-center dimension of the mounting slots is 20-1/2 inches, the Curt Spyder would indeed work with your existing rails.

  • Gooseneck Neck Trailer Rides Too High in the Front
  • All of the gooseneck hitches that fit 5th wheel rails are going to be roughly the same height and won't lower the trailer enough to tow it level. But there is an alternative. You may be able to use an over/under conversion kit or otherwise raise the height at the back of the trailer. You can use an over/under conversion kit if: The trailer leaf spring stack is currently mounted under the axles The trailer uses double-eye springs And the trailer has 2-3/8 inch or 3 inch diameter...

  • Comparing the Curt Spyder and Pro Series Gooseneck Hitches for 5th Wheel Rails
  • The Curt Spyder gooseneck hitch that fits in 5th wheel rails # 16085 is just a different design than the plates such as # 49080. The Spyder cannot be mounted with an offset (with the ball closer to the tailgate) but since you have a long bed truck you would not need the offset for turning clearance. The Pro Series Gooseneck plate, # 49080, has the ball welded closer to one end than the other so it can be mounted with an offset. Both types of hitches have places to attach safety cables....
