Other than being heavy to set in the truck bed, the hitch is easy to install into a B&W gooseneck and it stayed well secured without any shifting of the base for a 400 mile round trip towing a10k lb trailer. The 4 degree side to side tilt does not seem necessary and it does make it difficult to properly torque the mounting nut. The side to side tilt also adds a good bit of weight. 431910

Not recommended at all in a short box. The hitch sits 5" forward on center axle. Cab clearance is greatly reduced. Hitch doesn't even come close to sitting flat in the truck. Hitch is very sloppy in the Goose Neck receiver. I had to spend a lot of time and money to have the hitch reworked. The only reason I gave a 2 star rating is because of the Great Customer Service at ETrailer!!! Otherwise it would get no stars!!!! 420162


Comments

Clarke,Thank you for your review. This hi-rise adapter is not recommended in a short bed truck. This adapter will not provide enough clearance in tight turning situations. A slider hitch is normally recommended in short bed trucks but Draw-tite does not manufacture a slider version of this adapter. If you have a hide-a-goose setup you can use a convert a ball adapter with an offset. Part number: C5GX1216. This will allow you to use your gooseneck hitch in your short bed truck to tow a 5th wheel. The coupler bolts to your trailers king pin and connects to the gooseneck ball. The offset should give you enough clearance to make tight turns. I have also included a help article for additional reference.

Fit, finish, instructions and overall quality are top notch. Assembly is easy with basic tools. Customer Service here was great too. Because I was in a real rush to get the hitch, they went out of their way to break it up into two shipments that could be handled by UPS vs having it one package that had to come truck freight. As a result, I got it when I needed it. Thank you very much, Larry. 324071

What a wonderful experance I have had working with etrailer. The follow-up and concern to make it right, was over whelming. My wife counted five phone calls, to keep us infromed about a lost box, by UPS. When found the box was danaged and a part was missing. The part was FedX to me next day! I know i will be using etrailer again. 411649

Straightforward instructions and easy install. Worked fine and handled our 11k lbs fiver with no problems. Got to destination, took hitch off and I can again use my gooseneck ball and/or have full use of the bed w/out any fiver hitch rails. Highly recommended 436857

I ordered this hitch, when it came in the box was damaged and parts missing. Called them had the missing parts in a few days. Hitch is great and was the best price around. etrailers is an excellent company to do business with. 419335

by: Scott T06/03/2017


The reason I didn't rate it higher is it doesn't sit real flat in the bed and bangs around a little when starting and stopping. Otherwise I would be happier if it was easier to remove. 388284

I recently purchased a used '08 Ford F-350 with a B&S turnover gooseneck hitch. I wanted to use a Reese 16k hitch that I already own and put it in this truck without doing the typical bed rails to attach the fifth wheel hitch. I contacted Etrailer and they quickly identified the Curt X5 adapter to solve my issue. Ordered new adapter and in 3 days I had the unit and everything fit perfectly. This is the second time I have dealt with Etrailer in the last 6 months and I continue to be impressed with all aspects of this company. I'm glad I found Etrailer 6 months ago when I was looking for trailer hub and brake parts. I knew just who to turn to with my latest needs. Thanks Etrailer! 208661

Ordered Curt X5 Fifth Wheel Adapter for my B&W Square Shank Turnover Ball Hitch and received it in two days. Had it installed in my trucks in a matter of minutes. Just pulled out the ball and inserted the adapter, no holes to drill in my truck bed and simply unpin it and remove it to have full use of my bed. Love it! 192930


Comments

It is great! Just got back from a 4800 mile trip and unhooked my fifth wheel and pulled the pin and removed everything from my truck bed. The only way to go!

Received the Curt X5 B&W turnover ball adapter yesterday. Would have been easier to drop in with two people but I was able to do it myself. Dropped right in, and in less then 15 seconds it was dropped and locked. Saved me lots of install time on 5th wheel rails. Set my RBW lil' rocker hitch on and pulled my 10,000 lbs 32' 5th wheel across town without issue. I feel that this is probably the strongest way to go when running a 5th wheel to turnover ball adapter, and its only about $*** which is a fraction of the cost for those other weird complex adapters that side load or flex. Customer feedback was great with optimal response time on my questions. 266615

Nothing fancy, strictly utilitarian and simple. Built like a bomb shelter and shows no signs of wear. I pull a Keystone Laredo 298BH almost bi-monthly and this gives me the flexibility I need to switch hitch styles between trailers. If you need a completely flat bed for hauling then you still have it versus bolted on bed rails. Much safer than a 5er extension and doesn't void the warranty on your travel trailer if there is a failure. I shimmed mine off of the truck bed to take out the slop with 2 sections of round baler belting from a tractor supply store attached via industrial adhesive and it works beautifully. It weighs a lot so swap outs are a bit of a chore but i wouldn't want it to be built any lighter. Bravo on a great product 357271

After reading numerous favorable reviews on the goosseneck to 5th wheel adapter #16310 I decided to purchase one from etrailer.com. My entire experience has been truly outstanding. I ordered the adapter on Sunday night and Monday morning I received a phone call confirming my order and address. The order shipped on that same day and arrived on Thursday. I installed the adapter in my truck within minutes and installed my HUSKY slider hitch within minutes with absolutely no problems. I picked up my new 5th wheel and the adapter and hitch worked perfectly. I highly recommend etrailer.com and the Curt X5 Fith Wheel Adapter for B and W Square Shank Turner Ball Hitches-16310. 170741

I just wanted to say the people at etrailer are some of the best people to do business with. Me being someone who always seems to get broken or flawed items when i order online can with all honesty say i feel they went out of their way to make sure my adapter arrived in time for my trip and in excellent working order! I have looked thru their site and seen all the stuff they carry and if they have or can get it i will do business with nobody else. If you want a company that does business they way it's supposed to be done than you can't go wrong with these guys! Thank you so much and it's all my pleasure to give a 10star review.... 192401

Excellent product, well made and fits as it should on both sides. A device like this, to be worth making and selling, has to have certain assumptions as to fit and function. Curt has done a great job of giving the customer flexibility in fitting up. In my case the (turnover ball) pin went part way in and stuck tight. I thought that removing the rubber shims on the underside of the adapter would be too much downward movement, so, with 5th wheel hitch installed, I found some washboard road to drive on. Problem solved; pin works perfectly. By the way, I call this thing a "spider". After all it has 8 legs. 426799

This is just what I was looking for, already had Curt R5 slider hitch, put B&W hitch on new truck. Tried a gooseneck adapter, but too much flex. Went back to 5th wheel hitch. This adapter is built heavy, weighs over 100lbs by itself. I pull a 14,000lb toy hauler, with a F250 shortbed, needed the slider. I feel much safer with this product. Ordered from e.trailer, shipping was right on, only 3 days. 134542

I just purchased a used pickup that had a B&W square shank ball set up in it. I really was not looking forward to the headache of installing a rail kit, what with the drilling etc. that is required. I kept searching until I found this product. For a comparison: frame rail install with all drilling that's required, several hours; installing this, 30 seconds. It's definitely the way to go if you already have a gooseneck ball set up in your truck. I was also very impressed with how quickly the item arrived. I was expecting a week or so, instead it arrived in three days. I am very happy all the way around. 158746

Great product! Ive pulled a 42' to Hell and back not one problem. It is heavy, but it's very solid. My fifth wheel hitch fit straight in. Way cheaper than having to put rails in if you have a factory ball hitch in the bed. Its It's also nice that it's removable so you can haul furniture, or things that can't sit crooked ect. Great product, should last forever. Definitely would recommend 261579

Have a truck with a goose neck hitch but needed an adapter to haul a 5th wheel trailer. This hitch is very easy to use, fits well in my bed (truck bed is very banged up and uneven from years of demolition/ remodel work and fire wood hauling), and is quick to place and remove. The adapter lays flush enough in the truck bed that it wouldn't affect most loads or cargo (i.e. Lumber, mulch/bark, fire wood, etc.) My 5th wheel hitch (Reese) fits perfectly with the hitch. I am incredibly pleased with all aspects of this product. Worth the price for the ease of use. 262334

The X-5 is a heavy built, nicely finished adapter. It literally took me longer to open the box than to install it. I slipped it into the opening myself. I owned a Pro 15k which slipped right into the rails. I had assumed when I purchased this product (as it was advertised to fit a B&W turnover) that there was a built in offset to counter the typical 6" install towards the cab. After measuring my trailer it's appearant that a slider is now needed. It would be ausome if there was an option for an offset especially for the price. 336435

Heavy duty. But it does not drop into B & W under bed hitch far enough for the capture pin to engage the hole in the Curt adapter. I am not going to modify my spray in bed liner to solve this problem. Curt should make the hitch work without the need to modify a spray in liner. ( A larger hole in the Curt drop in shaft?) Maybe when I am able to drop the trailer onto the hitch it will engage the B & W under bed pin due to the extra weight. At this point I'm not satisfied . 345043

I recently purchased a 2015 Denali HD to pull our Rockwood 5th wheel. This truck had the B & W goose neck already installed. Instead of removing the hitch from the previous truck, I decided to try the B & W with the Curt X5 5th Wheel adapter. After reading the reviews, I was anxious to see if it fit as some said it did and others not. I ordered it on Wednesday and received it the following Monday. It was so easy to install and fit perfectly. Thanks etrailer. 424867

What a deal, much lower price then anybody else, extremely fast shipping! Just drop it in, set the hitch, good to go. When done, take out the hitch, take out the adapter and have a perfectly smooth bed for whatever. Appears to be heavily built, very solid and how much simpler can you get, drop it in the gooseneck hole, throw the lock lever and you're ready! Like everything else I've order from etrailer, top notch stuff at great prices! 420637

Excellent product, good build quality, it didn't work for me as a drop in and use it but etrailer was willing to make it right. My fifth wheel hitch bolted right in with no issues. Excellent how all pieces can be removed leaving a flat bed surface. Do not expect this to fit in 2017 F250 with B&W turnover ball (bwgnrk1117) as it will not lock in place since the ridges in the truck bed are different height than previous year trucks. 389696

I ordered the curt adapter for my already installed B&W turnover ball and it works just as advertised. I had a spray in bedliner which didn't cause any issues. When I contacted etrailer Chris was very helpful and knowledgeable. Any question she wasn't sure about was directed to a technician who was able to answer. The item was packed very well and arrived in near perfect condition. Overall excellent experience. 351504

5th wheel adapter plate fits perfect in ball socket. The hitch which I'am mounting to the adapter has a solid bottom, it will not allow the hitch to mount to the rails. I was wondering if you sold a 2" spacer kit # 46250 for a ts3 Trailer saver hitch? If so how much is it. Rubber Pads were put on backwards so the stuck to the box instead of hitch. can I get 4 pads?

I was so happy to discover this adapter. I had to have a gooseneck hitch and wanted it to be hidden. I was dreading the fifth wheel rails sticking up in the bed again (bed replacement). This does the trick. Only reason for 4 starts is that it is a bit tight with no bedliner. Not even a spray in. But, I guess the maker has to build to a certain spec and not everyone would have a bedliner... 438660

Etrailer did a great job of shipping very very fast received in just three days. The X5 it's built very sturdy and it is very heavy it seems to be very strong. The only issue that could be with this product is when you use it with a B&W hitch it seems to set it a little deeper in the bed maybe about 6 inches behind Center axle. If you don't have a slider hitch this could be a problem 245646



- 16310

by: Phil10/27/2015


Great product and easy to install. etrailer staff was great. Shipping was fast. One note: if your goose neck pin doesn't fully engage due to a spray in bedliner, connect up to your trailer and the weight of the trailer should allow the pin to fully engage. After my first trip the adapter settled enough and the pin engages easily without the trailer weight. 230906

Received product very quickly within 4 days with the free shipping option. The adapter dropped right in. The only issue I had is two of the small rubber pads came off the bottom of the adapter and we're stuck to the cardboard so in useable. I put the 5th wheel hitch on the rails and everything lined up except the two pins on the cab side will have to be hammered in. 209303

Shank was too long. It bottomed out in the gooseneck hole an inch and a half at least before the rails touched the linex. Some modification was needed to make it work. Can't just drop it in and go. Glad I wasn't going camping the week it was delivered! Looks well built and the idea is good. Just needs to fit as advertised! 200398

Great product, fits perfectly and performs well. I have the B&W turn over ball hitch and considered the B&W 3500 5th wheel. I bought this instead, about $500 less expensive and used my existing 5th wheel hitch. No issues and saved the money. Caution lifting this piece, it is over 100lbs, highly recommend using two people. 196913

This is so much better than having the rails permanently in my truck. The installation went well. Having to cut the heat shield is one of those moments on a brand new truck but it needs to be done. I recommend getting a plug for the turnover ball. Winter salt will not be kind to the ball in the turned down position. 290262

Great product, had it for about a year. I leave it in the truck all the time. It's very heavy. No complaints. I think if I used the turnover ball for gooseneck I would install rails. My B&W is a bit rusty and hard to switch out. 344745

The shank slides right in. The thing I noticed is there is small rubber bumpers on the bottom of the rails but they don't actually touch the bed. If I had a spray on liner it would probably ride on there better 228024
