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...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Pin Box To Replace Lippert 1621 On 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Thank you for the picture! I reached out to my contact at Lippert and based on the serial number you provided I was able to confirm that your trailer has a 1621 pin box with an 18000lb rating. For a gooseneck pin box that will fit you will need either the Reese Goose Box - 20000lb # RP94720 or the Gen-Y 25000lb # GY38FR. Between these two options I recommend the Gen-Y # GY38FR due to it having a built in shock absorber feature that will give you a smoother ride, but also due to...

  • 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, the 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...

  • Why Is the King Pin Behind the Rear Axle When Using B&W Companion On 2020 GMC Sierra 2500

  • Using GVWR to Determine Proper Gen-Y Hitch Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter Pin Box
  • I spoke with Gen-Y Hitch to confirm the right gooseneck pin box for you. To determine the proper pin box, they use a formula based on your GVWR. The tongue weight of your trailer can be anywhere between 10 and 30 percent of that number (30 is extremely high, but possible). Based on that, your 2020 Keystone Cougar (at 11,500 pounds of GVWR) can end up being between 1150 and 3450 pounds. This lines up with your measured weight. As such, the 2K Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck...

Lippert is currently testing this product in order to give it their 'stamp of approval', but the process has been delayed by the Covid situation.

  • 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.

  • How To Fix Gooseneck Pin Box Adapter Causing Pin Box To Hit Bed Sides When Turning

Since your new 2021 Silverado 2500HD High Country has higher bed sides causing the pin box to make contact when turning the only option is going to be going with an 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter that is taller. For example the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter - 12" to 16" Tall - 20,000 lbs # CAB-C5G can be adjusted between 12" and 16" measured from the top of the gooseneck ball to the base of the pin box.

  • Can the Convert-A-Ball Gooseneck Adapter Be Used With A cushioned 5th Wheel Pin Box?
  • I have a couple of solutions – just not with the Convert-A-Ball. The Convert-A-Ball # CAB-C5G gooseneck adapter cannot be used with most cushioned or air ride pin boxes, or rotating pin boxes.. The additional flex of two cushioning devices creates leveraged angles that can break both pin box parts and truck parts.

  • What is the Difference Between the Gen-Y Pin Boxes 325-GH-8045 and GY58GR?
  • When it comes to the Gen-Y Hitch Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Pin Box # 325-GH-8045 and the # GY58GR, the main difference is the auto latch feature of the # GY58GR. This self-latching lever automatically engages when hitch ball is in socket for an easier connection. This feature also makes it easier to uncouple your Heartland Highlander from a position outside of your truck's bed. The # 325-GH-8045, on the other hand, comes with a manual latch coupler.

  • How to Determine What 5th Wheel King Pin You Have to Determine Correct Reese Goose Box
  • Although we don't have any way of knowing what king pin is on any specific trailer, but there should be on a sticker or a plate somewhere on the pin box itself that shows exactly what pin box model you have. 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

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 Auto Latch and Standard Gen-Y 5th Wheel to Gooseneck for Lippert 1621 Pin Box
  • The difference between the two Gen-Y 5th wheel to gooseneck adapters for a Lippert 1621/1621HD pin box is the latches, along with a slight difference in weight capacity. The standard has a 30,000 lb towing capacity while the auto latch has a 25,000 lb capacity, though that should make minimal difference for the majority of RVers. Apart from the capacity, the standard Gen-Y Adapter # GY36FR needs manual attachment when coupling the hitch to your truck's gooseneck, and then when uncoupling...

Since your Fusion is rated at 17K the # RP94720 will be perfect, it's rated at 20K GTW and 4K TW. For a goose ball and safety chain kit I recommend B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit # BWGNXA2061.

  • 5TH Wheel Leland 7920 Pin Box To Gooseneck Hitch Adapter That Will Reduce Road Shock and Bouncing
  • I have a solution to help with the chucking that you are experiencing as there is not a Reese Goosebox that fits the same bolt pattern used by the Leland 7920 Pinbox. The bolt hole spacing on your pin box is different vertically and horizontal from any of the cushioned 5th wheel pin box to gooseneck hitch pin box replacements that are currently available. I recommend either the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5G for a long bed truck or their Offset Adapter...

  • Replacing the Rhino Box Kingpin with Gen Y Pin Box

  • Gooseneck Hitch and Adapter Needed for Curt Q24 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2019 Ford F-350 Dually
  • I do have a solution for you, but the Curt X5 # C16210 is designed for Curt Double Lock Gooseneck Trailer Hitches which have an existing slide bar that locks the gooseneck hitch ball in place. Since the Curt Gooseneck Hitch # C60700 is designed for a self-locking hitch ball, like part # C60629, it means that the Curt gooseneck isn't compatible with the X5.
