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

The product was good the people at etrailer we're great.. now for the shipping the shipping sucked UPS I would never use them again every time I got the boxes they were torn up looks like they went through a meat grinder in fact I had to send back the first order cuz we didn't know if all the parts were there then when I got the second order it was just as bad. 490134

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

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

Great product. Very well built. I am a farmer and use it to hook up a goose neck trailer to our semi. We use the trailer to haul hay, machinery, or even cattle. What's great about this product is that you can move it from trailer to trailer. This adapter will fit in a gooseneck trailer with the pin running through the side or with the bolts on the front. Overall great product for the farm. 420980

The holes through the round tube insert for pinned height adjustment are not at a right angle to the square plate. I am not sure if it's designed that way on purpose or not. I would have thought it would have went exactly cross ways and not at an angle? The pictures look like the holes are for the pins to go straight thru from the side. I will not be using this feature at this time but maybe in the future. It's welded great and not warped and appears square in good shape but does have some rust. Primer at min would be helpful. It arrived very quickly about 2 travel days plus the weekend, 1 day ahead of schedule. This should solve the problem of leaning/ rolling trailer on the goose neck ball for high leverage loads by converting to anti sway 5th wheel set up. 458153

This item is ONLY for Bull Dog tubes requiring a 15 degree offset. I did not know this until after putting it in my none Bull Dog tube (I have a Lippert chassis). Tested after installation and the offset was so pronounced that it caught on my receiver. Talked with manufacturer's technical expert, and he said that the industry standard is 15 degrees. Regardless, the adapter is expertly fabricated and of good strong steel. Just wish it worked for my trailer. etrailer.com was very good trying to resolve my concern to point Donna spent a lot of time researching a solution for me. Ultimately I shipped back the adapter because it was not doable for me. We both learned a lot today about trailers and the limitations on Bull Dog adapters. 461653

I bought a fifth wheel camper trailer and mounted a B&W Companion hitch onto the gooseneck hitch in the bed of my truck. It is such a pain to take in and out, so I bought one of these for my horse trailer to see how they work. They work great, so great in fact that I bought two more for my stock trailer and flatbed trailer. The only negative I have is that the holes in the sides of the pipe for bolts, pins, etc., are not located 90 degrees from the front of the hitch plate and therefore will not line up with the holes in most receivers on the trailers. They are apparently drilled before the plate is welded on, because none of the three I bought are in the same relationship to the front of the plate. 369013


Comments

I love these adapters. They make it possible to use my truck's 5th wheel hitch for my rv trailer, stock trailer and flat bed trailer (plus, they are much easier to hook up than the gooseneck hitch was). I would recommend these adapters to anyone. Thank you for checking back with me. I am very pleased with the service your company has given me over the years.

Bought this so my wife could load and unload our 30' flatbed easier. The gooseneck required her to climb into the bed and was hard for her to line up. This adapter installed in less than 60 seconds and has made her new career as a hot shot driver that much more enjoyable. I couldn't be more happier. 445862

I have ordered alot from etrailer and always been pleased , last week I ordered a 5th wheel conversion for my gooseneck trailer then went outside and literally cut my gooseneck hitch off , i then got a call from etrailer saying the part I ordered was backordered and was not available .while I was disappointed I was so glad called me immediately and was able to come up with a alternative . Great customer service ,I can not say enough great things about etrailer 492683

This is the third adapter I have purchased from etrailer. One for my horse trailer, one for my dump trailer and now one for my equipment trailer. A little bit of time to paint and install and everything is fine. No more climbing in the pickup bed to hook and unhook, no chains to deal with. I prefer the 5th wheel to the ball gooseneck, much easier hook up when you can't see the ball in the bed of your truck. Quality is very good and they work. You won't find it cheaper anywhere else and they always ship quick. 357080

Worked like a charm, haul for a living and slides right in every circle gooseneck hitch. Only recommendation for company for buyers is to clear coat it because when not in use it will surface rust with in a couple days. Otherwise affordable quality buy! 344645

The product is heavy duty as expected and the welds are excellent. The pipe/tube fit my gooseneck receiver perfectly. The only disappoint was that the drilled holes for the securing the unit to the neck of my trailer were drilled out of alignment with the neck of my trailer and this caused the base plate to sit off center with the fifth wheel hitch when connected to my truck. Fortunately I'm still able to use the unit, it just looks wacky. 286455

I considered building this myself, but for the price, it's a good deal and does the trick. The only thing I dislike about it is are the 4 triangle shaped gussets at the base. I would have preferred to see a collar used (4 inch ID, 5 inch OD, 1 inch height) to marry the pipe and 5th wheel plate. I believe this would have provided a more positive weld and also permitted a deeper penetration of the inner pipe into the goose neck outer pipe. 94411

I own a small transportation company and needed a way to minimize hookup time for one my drivers that primarily pulls fifth wheels hookups. We bought a 30 ft gooseneck trailer and found we needed a faster solution. We reached out to etrailer and they had solution that worked perfectly. Also, we were able to get our hitch conversion within 3 days limiting our downtime. I will buy from these guys again!!!! Excellent service.... 231711

Plate was bowed during welding process when plate was attached to tube. The plate and holes of inter tube did not line-up with outer tube so plate is square with trailer, off 10-15 degrees, when pin is installed thru hole. Will be able to use it on the one 5-th wheel hitch but not the other one that needs a special plate for the slider hitch to work, being that the tube is not square w/trailer. 215224

Bought to convert gooseneck flatbed to fifthwheel so I wouldnt have to change my hitch every time. Problem solved. Made of good material with good welding. Fit right into my hitch. Hooks right up to my fifthwheel hitch. It was not de-burred or painted. Braces were too high to access lowest hole. Looked like they finished welding it then loaded it in the box and shipped it. Good for price. 247638

Very heavy duty hitch. Installation was a breeze. Took maybe 5 minutes. The only complaints that I have is A.) you have to paint it and B.) the square plate was welded onto the tube crooked. No big deal it won't affect the function it just looks odd. Don't get me wrong I would definitely buy this again. Now I don't have to take out my 5th wheel hitch to use my gooseneck trailer. 258858

Product was just like described, fits perfectly and was reasonable priced to boot, this will have pulling regular gooseneck trailers much easier since I do not need to remove the 5th from my pick-up that I use for pulling my RV trailer, If I need anything trailer related in the future etrailer.com will be the first place I look. 246935

This does exactly what it says it does...lets you use your gooseneck trailer with a 5th wheel hitch. I have not converted all my gooseneck trailers with one of these. The only thing I would be able to complain about is that the holes in the side are not square with the flat plate which holds the hitch pin. 300584
