  • Demco Recon Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Adapter for Flat Bed Truck with Recessed Ball

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Recommendation for Reese Goose Box With Too Little Height Clearance on 2017 Ford F-250 4x4
  • The Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter # RP94720 may not be the best fit. If you have already adjusted the air and the position of the connection, then it is not ideal as you really do want the 7 inches for proper turning clearance on an incline. You can gain 1 inch by using the High-Rise Ball # BWGNXA2050, but it sounds like you need a different option than the Goose Box for your 2017 Ford F-250 4x4. If you want to send a photo to confirm proper installation,...

  • The foot print of the Demco Recon fifth wheel adapter # DM8550045 which is the base of the Recon Hitch part # DM6201 is 28” front to back and 30.5” left to right. Looks like you'd be an inch short as this would have 14 inches forward and rear of the hitch ball center it installs on.

  • Converting the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch to Fit a 2017 Ram 3500 with Factory Puck System
  • It sounds like you have the B&W Companion fifth wheel hitch, part # BWRVK3500, that fits into the B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch. There isn't an adapter to make the square gooseneck shank fit into the round factory gooseneck hole on your new 2017 Ram 3500 but we do have something that'll work for you. Instead you can keep the head of your current hitch and replace the base with either part # BWRVB3600 for the fixed legs or part # BWRVB3670 for the slider. The bases fit into the...

  • Adapting a Gooseneck Hitch to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2011 Ford F-350
  • The hole for gooseneck balls are not all the same. The Companion hitches such as # BWRVK3050, which was designed for flat bed trucks, only fit B&W Turnover Ball gooseneck hitches. For a gooseneck ball that sticks up from the bed (and is not recessed in a cavity like on a flat bed truck) you can use the Demco Recon hitch # DM8550045. It clamps around a 2-5/16 inch gooseneck ball. I have included a link to a video review of this hitch for you. Another option is to adapt the trailer...

  • Can the Reese Goose Box be Used on a Short Bed 2016 Ram 2500
  • The correct Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter for a Lippert 1621 pin box is part # RP94716 for 16,000 lbs or part # RP94720 for 20,000 lbs. With that being said, it is not recommend to use the Reese Goose Box on a short bed truck due to limited turning clearance. They do make an offset gooseneck ball adapter for the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # 9467 on your 2016 Ram 2500, the 5" Offset Ball part # 19308 but this still is more than likely...

The 20,000 lb model has extra internal bracing to give it more strength. They are also both designed to replace the same pin boxes which is a Lippert 1621, 1621HD, and 0719. With that being said there are adjustments that can be made at the mounting location for the pin box so it is possible that a different set of...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch to 5th Wheel King Pin for Horse Trailer and Short Bed Truck

There unfortunately isn't a better option for the offset you need for best turning clearance and you may still have some restrictions based on the placement of that king pin.

These are compatible with the factory prep package in your Silverado and will allow you to use the Companion hitch head from the B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3500 that you already have. Instead of just replacing the base I recommend selling your entire Companion and using that money to offset the price...

The Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter part # RP94720 cannot be used on your 2018 Ram 3500 because it has a short bed. If you were to use the Reese Goose Box the loft of your trailer would likely come into contact with the cab of your vehicle causing thousands in damage.

Please also keep in mind that the base will require a 36" long x 30-1/2" wide opening.

  • Best Rated 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ford F-250 Crew Cab V8 Turbo Diesel 4WD
  • All your calculations are right on. The truth is that most people do overload their trucks, because adding more and more options to be able to achieve a higher towing capacity can get pretty costly, pretty quickly. I took a look at the Ford Trailer Towing Guide that you mentioned. It indeed states that your 2019 F-250 Diesel, crew cab, 4x4 160 in WB and 6-3/4 ft box and 3.31 axle ratio, is limited to a gross trailer weight rating (GTWR) of 14,100 lbs.

Therefore, if you are looking for a Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter then you will need part # RP94716-61301.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Can Stationary B&W Companion be Used with Short Bed on a 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The B&W Companion # BWRVK3500 will fit with the B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1116 whether you have the 6-1/2' or the 8' bed. The only problem you would have is if by standard bed you mean 6-1/2' then you may not have enough clearance in tight turn situations and you could possibly damage the cab of your 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty. Some newer 5th wheels are coming out with a tapered nose design. If your 5th wheel has this then you could possibly get away with the stationary Companion...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel To Gooseneck Hitch Adapter on Short Bed Truck

I recommend the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter w/ Offset - 12" to 16" Tall # CAB-C5GX1216. This will give you a 7-1/2 inch offset. A better option that will give you more turning clearance and a more stable connection is to use the B&W Companion Slider Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3400. This sliding 5th wheel hitch fits in your B&W gooseneck and utilizes...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible with Recessed Gooseneck on CM Brand Flat Bed Truck Body?

It is compatible with a Demco hijacker hitch like # DM6076P-UL-21K, but not the Hijacker Autoslide hitch like # DM8550035. My recommendation for your application is to use the Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter for Recessed Ball - Single Jaw - 21,000 lbs # DM8550046.

Unfortunately, they do not make a Reese Goose Box compatible with this wing set. However, if you prefer to have a gooseneck hitch ball as your connection point then you can use the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter part # CAB-C5G or part # CAB-C5GX1216.

This particular unit is designed to replace the Lippert 1621, 1621HD, and 0719 pin boxes. The existing pin box on your trailer should have a sticker or plate on it that lists its model.

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.

  • Grease for Use With Reese Goose Box
  • Yes, you can absolutely use an all-purpose lithium grease for your new Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter # RP94720. A great option is the LubriMatic Multi-Purpose Lithium Grease # L11315 which will work with LubriMatic Standard-Duty, Lever Action Grease Gun # L30200. This is a 14 oz. cartridge though there is also a small 3 oz. cartridge and grease gun, the LubriMatic Mini Grease Gun Kit with Multi-Purpose Grease # L30132.

  • Best Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Hitch with Adjustable Height for 2018 Ram 3500 Flatbed Truck
  • I have a solution for you, but because the B&W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Hitch is not height adjustable, it likely won't work for your application. Depending on the size of your 5th Wheel trailer, I recommend switching to the Demco Recon Gooseneck to 5th Wheel # DM8550046 which has adjustable height settings of 11-1/2, 12-3/4 and 14" above the base of the hitch. With the Demco Recon, you get a heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch that mounts in your truck bed by connecting...

  • Locking a Trailer that has a Reese Goose Box Adapter/Coupler
  • The design of the Reese Goose Box adapters, such as # RP94716, prohibits the use of locks designed for standard gooseneck couplers. They cannot grab onto the coupler like they are supposed to. To secure the trailer a wheel lock such as # WI490 or # RA-25 or something similar is recommended instead. I have linked some videos on these locks for you.
