Exactly what I needed. Perfect fit 249474



- 49080
by:

Was bit if a tight fit and had to kick it to make all 4 spots fit, but that could just be because my truck bed isn't very level and therefore neither are the rails. Lol. So far works great! 559986

Purchased a used dually with bed rails already installed. Rather than remove them and go to a turn-over GN hitch, I tried this product. I am very satisfied with the end results. I pull a 30'+ horse trailer with living quarters. The hitch is very strong. I did have to makes some minor adjustments with a grinder to get it to go smoothly into my existing rails - took all of 10 minutes to complete. 267019



- 49080
by:

I use this hitch with a set of Reese above the bed rails for towing gooseneck trailers, mostly a small livestock trailer. One of the features I really like is that the ball is not centered front to back in the plate. This allows me to turn the plate around when the "neck" of the goose is shorter than makes me comfortable to give myself a few extra inches of clearance. Usually I have it turned so the ball is as far foward as possible as it gives the best weight distribution on to the truck. Very good product, I highly recommend it. 568268

by:

Had to do a lot of grinding on this to make it fit my Reese rails. I have a Reese 5th wheel hitch that fits the rails ok. When I first looked at my pickup it had a Reese gooseneck hitch in it. The person I bought the pickup from kept it so I know that the rails were ok. The jig they use to build these must be off some. 156039

Do you have a question about this Gooseneck?


  • Adapters to Allow Towing Gooseneck Trailer with 5th Wheel Hitch and Base Rails
  • If you have a set of industry-standard above-bed 5th wheel base rails in your truck you can tow a gooseneck trailer by installing an adapter such as the Curt Spyder # 16085, the Pro Series # 49080 or one of the other similar items shown on the linked page. All of these 5th wheel rail gooseneck adapters are standardized to fit into any brand of 5th wheel base rails.

The handle for the gooseneck ball will not work with the 5th wheel rails in place according to my contact at B&W. Unfortunately you will need to choose between them.

  • Available Adapter To Attach A 5th-Wheel Trailer To Reese Fold Down Gooseneck Hitch
  • If you do not have the gooseneck installed yet the most recommended setup you can use is to have a 5th-wheel system installed first and then when you wish to tow a gooseneck trailer, you would remove the 5th-wheel hitch and use an adapter plate, like the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate for Fifth Wheel Rails, part # 49080, with a gooseneck ball attached for towing. If you already have a gooseneck or wish to have a gooseneck hitch installed and use an adapter to convert it to a fifth...

  • Is Slider 5th Wheel Hitch Needed for 2014 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4-Foot Bed
  • A sliding 5th wheel hitch is required for your 2014 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4-foot bed in order for you to have enough cab-to-trailer clearance for making tight turns. Adapters with offset do not change the pivot point so they will not give you more turning clearance. If you need a sliding 5th wheel hitch for your existing base rails you can use the 16K Pro Series # PS30094 for a cost-effective option; this slider hitch offer 10-inches of travel. Or for a more advanced hitch Demco's 18K...

  • Availability of Fifth Wheel Rail Kit to Gooseneck Adapter that Can Replace Pullrite Superglide Hitch
  • Pullrite Superglide hitches can be made to fit two different styles of fifth wheel rails. They have an industry standard rail kit hitch (or "ISR" as they call it), which we do have a gooseneck adapter available. For that you would want the part # 49080 which will fit those rails and give you a gooseneck ball. If you happen to have the other Pullrite style rails we won't be able to help with that.

  • Will the Pro Series Gooseneck Adapter part # 49080 fit Pullrite Fifth Wheel Rails
  • As long as the Pullrite rails are the industry standard rail dimensions that are 22 inches apart between rail centers then yes, the Pro Series Gooseneck Adapter part # 49080 would fit and work well. From left to right the mounting tabs of this are 10 inches apart.

  • 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...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Solution for 2004 GMC Sierra 2500 for Turn Clearance
  • The Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter w/8" Offset # AM3139 is legal for use on fifth wheel trailers as long as the weight of the trailer is under it's 24k capacity. You can not use an offset ball adapter as well as this though as that would put too much leverage on the hitch/trailer. Your trailer being 8k means it would be fine from that point of view. The problem with this adapter is that it does not move the pivot point of the trailer back at all so you are...

  • Recommendation for Towing Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Trailer with 2001 Ford F-250
  • I do have a solution for you, however the Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 6300 referenced in your question is designed to install using a vehicle-specific gooseneck rail kit. It cannot be mounted to standard 5th wheel base rails. If you are just needing a gooseneck trailer hitch, the custom kit for your 2001 Ford F-250/350 is the Draw-Tite # 6300-4448, which will include both the gooseneck hitch and installation rails.

  • Will Draw-Tite Gooseneck Plate, # 49080, Fit On Reese Rails, # RP30035, And What Is Rating On Rails
  • The Draw-Tite Gooseneck Plate, # 49080, will fit on the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit, # RP30035. The gooseneck plate is rated for 25,000 lbs. The universal rails will be able to handle the 25,000 lbs. weight rating because the rails are designed to exceed the towing weight capacity of the vehicle it will fit. The gooseneck plate and the universal rails will both exceed the towing capacity of your 1997 Chevy Cheyenne truck. So the weight rating limit will be determined...

This is a custom fit for your truck that will give you a gooseneck hitch that will keep your truck bed clean when not in use.

What I am not sure of is if the gooseneck plates we have that fit the above the bed rails will fit the RBW rails (if they are RBW rails). You will need to take some measurements of the rails to determine fit. I have included a picture showing the rail measurements our gooseneck plates will fit in.

For a 26k fifth wheel hitch setup you would want the Husky Fifth Wheel Hitch part # HT31318-31325 and then for rails you would want the part # HT32221-686.

  • 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.

  • Will Draw-Tite Gooseneck Plate Fit in 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Rails
  • The Pro Series gooseneck plate # 49080 fits in industry standard above the bed 5th wheel rails so you will not have to move and remount the rails. I actually recommend going with # 49080 because it has an offset, depending on which way to attach it to the rails. An offset will provide more clearance when turning if you should need it.

  • 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....

I recommend that you do not fabricate the gooseneck hitch to work in the 5th wheel install kit because neither component has been tested for this application and that makes the capacity unknown for 5th wheel or gooseneck towing. The solution is to use a gooseneck plate in the...

We do have several options for gooseneck trailer hitches that fit in 5th wheel rails. The most economical is Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate, # 49080.

  • Towing Fifth Wheels and Gooseneck Trailers with Ford F250 with 6 Foot 8 Inch Bed
  • Good truck choice! A 6-3/4 foot bed should work just fine for a gooseneck, but for a fifth wheel, you won't have enough clearance between the trailer loft and the rear of the cab.

  • The carriage bolts, washers and spacer blocks that are included with the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate, # 49080, only need to be used if you have a 4-bolt base rails installed on your truck.
