Expert Answers about Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


  • Is Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter Compatible with Spinning Hitch Ball
  • Yes, the Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter for Recessed Ball # DM8550046 is compatible with a gooseneck hitch ball that can spin. It basically clamps to the hitch ball and then pulls up to put pressure on the hitch ball which keeps it from spinning. I have attached a photo from the linked instructions that goes over this. Please note that the part you mentioned is for a recessed gooseneck hitch ball. If you have a standard gooseneck hitch ball (that doesn't sit...

  • Would Gen-Y 325-GH-8045 Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter Pin Box Damage 5th Wheel
  • Due to the shock absorbing properties provided by the Gen-Y # 325-GH-8045 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter Pin Box, it would be much less likely to cause damage than a rigid adapter. If you're concerned about damage, he best alternative is to avoid adapters all together and use a fifth wheel hitch but if that isn't feasible the Gen-Y adapter which is a compatible replacement for the Lippert 1621 pin box would be a good choice. A better option would be the Reese Goosebox that's compatible...

  • Recommended 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter for 2018 Ram 3500
  • The reason the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5G is not recommended for use with factory-installed gooseneck prep packages on Fords from 2011-present and Ram from 2013-present is because they use gooseneck hitch ball # RP19311 that has a plastic handle on top (see photo) that folds into the hitch ball and the Convert-A-Ball # CAB-C5G has a nut on the inside that will damage the gooseneck ball. For that reason, if you wanted to use the Convert-A-Ball on...

  • Reese M5 Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2020 Ford F-350 with OEM Rail Kit
  • Since you said to assume the loaded weight of the trailer will be 20k the Reese M5 hitch you'll want is the 27k model part # RP30922 which you'll be really happy with. The price difference between it and the 20k model # RP30921 is almost non-existent so going with the higher rated option really has no downside. A buddy of mine just installed this hitch in his new Ford truck and he really likes it. He came from a Companion hitch which many regard as the nicest and he said this hitch was...

  • Comparing Dimensions of Reese Goose Box and Gen-Y Adapter for Lippert 1621 & 1621 HD Pin Box
  • The clearances are going to essentially be the same due to the dimensions of the Gen-Y Hitch Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter Pin Box # 325-GH-8045 and Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter # RP94720. As you can see by the dimensions from the first bolt hole to the middle of the coupler of each, both are going to give you just over 18 inches: 18.56 inches for the Goose Box and 18.86 inches for the Gen-Y.

  • Choosing Between the Reese 16K and 20K Goose Boxes
  • In order to choose the correct Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter you'll need to first know which model pin box you have (1621, 1116, 1716 etc.) and then the weight capacity of the existing pin box. The part # RP94716 and part # RP94720 are both for a 1621 but have 16,000 lb and 20,000 lb weight capacities. I recommend going with the option that matches the capacity you have now but if you would like to go with a higher rated option for more of a safety margin...

  • Reese Goosebox Recommendation for 2019 Grand Design Solitude 310GK
  • The correct Reese Goose Box for your 2019 Grand Design Solitude 310GK is the # RP94716 since I was able to determine the pin box type your trailer has is a 1621 and the GVWR is 15k. The 20k version part # RP94720 that you referenced would technically work too but it would have more weight capacity than you'd technically need.

  • Reese Goose Box Dimensions for Proper Trailer Ride Height with Truck Gooseneck Hitch
  • The Goose Box Doesn't specifiy the height required from the ground to the ball. Instead it specifies the height from the coupler connection to the front bottom bolt where the pin box attaches. I've attached photos of these dimensions to assist with the Goose Box # RP94720 and # RP94716. Bed height can be adjusted at the pin box bolts, with the angle of the connection on the Goose Box, or at the axles of the trailer itself to find the proper fit for your truck and trailer.

  • Demco Recon Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter that Can be Used with CM Flat Bed
  • Demco makes a special version of the Recon hitch for flat bed applications that have recessed balls actually! So what you'd want instead is the part # DM8550046. This has a shorter overall height to make up for the additional height of the flat bed truck and has the portion that attaches to the ball sit a bit lower. I attached a picture of this installed on a flat bed truck similar ot yours for you to check out as well.

Barring that, you will need to either measure your bolt hole spacing as in the linked help article I added, or contact Forest River with your VIN and they will be able to tell you the pin box that was originally on it.

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch and Pin Box Combination for 2020 Ford F-350 Short Bed With OEM Pucks
  • Thanks for all the information. It gives me a couple ideas to throw your way to see what you'd prefer. The very best option in my opinion is to use the best hitch and best king pin option for the smoothest ride and turning clearances. That would consist of the B&W Companion # BWRVK3300 which installs in two parts so it can be a one man job, and then a Sidewinder pin box for your turning clearances. You can use the non-air ride # RP34FR or my preference the air ride # RP61422. I also...

  • Difference Between B and W Companion Part Numbers # RVK3500 and the # RVC3006
  • The B and W Companion part # BWRVK3500 is for an entire Companion hitch and the part # BWRVC3006 is for just the head of this hitch. You'll note that the head has a higher capacity at 25k than the hitch. But that is because the base is the limiting factor and the Turnoverball style gooseneck base is limited at 20k.

  • Using Gooseneck 5th Wheel Rail Adapter on 2017 Ram 2500 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • The Curt X5 Rail Adapter # 16310 is designed to mount to the square B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hole to provide above-bed, industry standard 5th wheel base rails. The adapter itself (along with any other similar rail adapter) will not provide any type of turning clearance. For a short bed truck like yours you will still need to use a sliding 5th wheel hitch to provide the necessary cab clearance for making tight turns. For your 2017 Ram 2500 you will actually want to go with the Demco...

  • Towing Capacity and Recommended Upgrades for 2017 Ford F-250 to Pull 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The first thing I recommend doing is simply making sure that your 2017 Ford F-250 has the towing capacity needed to pull the Grand Design Solitude 373FB Trailer. There are a variety of aftermarket components that will allow the truck to operate better and easier within its towing limits, but nothing that can actually increase the towing capacity set by the Ford. Based on my research the Grand Design Solitude 373FB has a GVWR of 16,800 pounds. This is the most it can weigh when fully...
