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

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

A very nicely made heavy duty product. The welds are beautiful! You could mention the hole size for the lock pin in the ad. I had to drill them out to 1-1/16" for my application. The corners and edges were sharp on the king pin plate. I rounded them off. I am very pleased with the product, the speedy delivery and the price. 73920

I am waiting for my trailer to be ready for pickup, but the unit fit my Pullrite universal type 3365 capture plate fit without any modifications. I did have to remove a few of the extra shims sent with the plate, but that is expected. Pulliam industries said I may need a 3317 plate. They also said the 3317 plate will work on just about any adapter with a kingpin. My hitch came with a 3365, so I tried to find an adaptor that would work. I was successful. The items ships raw steel and will be rusting when you receive it. I will paint it myself. I wish it was painted at the factory. 333856

I really like the king pin conversion over the goose neck for the ease of hooking and Unhooking. If I had a bigger truck with the regular fifth wheel it would've been great but I have the camper style fifth wheel that put center of gravity higher so it made my truck buck really bad. The only improvement I would make is to round The only improvement I would make is to round off The back two edges that are squared they get cought on my safety change when I turn sharp. I purchased an over over weight the bed ball plate from y'all and it works great 239400

The neck came in and looked great. Very heavily built and the welds look great. I am glad the kingpin is the same size as a tractor trailer hitch, as I have put this neck in my 32' tandem dual trailer. The trailer is heavy enough on a one ton truck empty, so it will now be used hooked to my Freightliner. The negatives I have are these... The neck holes are 7/8 and I needed them to be 1-1/8. I only needed the holes on one side, as the other side has a set bolt. So I had to fill that side in so the bolt would secure to something. 134827

I purchased a gooseneck adapter to install on a trailer I bought. I hadn't looked at the trailer and thought I needed a round tube so that's what I ordered. When I went to get the trailer I found out I needed the one with a square tube. All it took to get the correct one was to make a call and explain that I needed to send the wrong one back and get the correct one. The next day I received the correct one and went to get my trailer. The customer service people were great to deal with. Adapter fit was great! 369624

This slide in hitch pin has held up to my pulling very heavy loads for over a year. It installed easily and works well with my mid-range truck, even though I have a full size fifthwheel plate. It catches water when it rains and I would have liked it to be powder coated or painted so as to avoid rusting. I am very happy with the heavy duty welds and how thick the metal is on the shaft. overall it is well made and probably the best one on the market for the reasonable price. 242730

For the money....no....for any amount of money you can't beat it....excellent product...I use it every day....switching from the 5th wheel hitch to the gooseneck hitch every time I used my flat bed was a real pain....the conversion hitch saves me tons of time and it saves my back from lifting that 5th wheel hitch off three or 4 times a month... 356742

Thanks Etrailer for this item. Shipping was fast and the item arrived just as described. I ordered this item to go on my 2001 Take3 car hauler trailer. It had a gooseneck coupler on it and I needed to change it out to a kingpin or 5thwheel coupler. This item worked great. Only thing I had to do to it was paint it. 151651

workman ship of product very good. item did not fit big tex gooseneck hitch. had to machine all 4 sides so it would slide into neck. items need to have exact dimensions so one would know if the item will fit or not. a detailed drawing of product would have been very helpful. machine work is very costly. 168721

Received the Gooseneck to fifth-wheel coupler (inner tube only, with 4" square tube) yesterday. It is heavy duty (1/4") steel and construction seems very good. Only down side is that it is NOT cleaned or painted. I removed a little surface rust, cleaned, and spray painted it. 366328
