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

This hitch is a perfect solution I at first bought a king pin to to goose neck solid adapter because I also pull a 30 goose neck flatbed trailer often and couldn't be switching back and forth between different style of hitches. The problem was I was getting some bad chucking when pulling the new 33 ft toy hauler I just bought it was bad enough I think leaving it like that would of damaged the trailer, not to mention it sucked to drive, with this hitch it smoothed virtually all that out you will get what I would call some surging if you hit a bridge or big bump in the road but pulls way better. I won't own another fifth wheel trailer without an air ride hitch! The camper also gets a lot better ride on those pothole filled roads, trying to get to that great camp sight. 401030

This is the only way to haul a 5th wheel type of trailer. --But need a long bed, as this does not slide back. Way solid hook up. No latch problems that can have the trailer come out and wipe out your truck bed!! Easy to hook up. No rattling like my old slider hitch. Terrific. I would highly recommend this hitch, very strong and well made. I will never go back to the 5th wheel. Yes, I upgraded to a long bed truck. No big difference over the short one, not that much longer wheel base. And go dually! Shudda done this years ago--but this was just invented!! I did try the adapter being bolted on to the 5th wheel. Not good. Physics is all wrong. 499710

I bought a goose box fifth wheel adapter for gooseneck hitch in my flatbed pickup because I did not want the fifth wheel hitch in the way. It took 80% of the road bounce out, very easy to install. Excellent people to deal with, everything they told me about the hitch was correct, and hitch performs very good. Great company. I would highly recommend this hitch for anyone who has flatbed truck with a gooseneck. 339246

I HAVE HAD THIS BOX FOR A YEAR NOW !! AND I MUST SAY IT'S GREAT. IT WAS A BIT HARD TO HOOK UP AT FIRST BUT ONCE I GOT THE SPOT DOWN IT'S NOT TO BAD. NO CHUNK AT ALL STARTING OR STOPPING THE INSTALL WAS NOT BAD IF YOU HAVE TWO OR MORE GUYS . I LOVE IT GOING DOWN THE ROAD WELL WORTH THE MONEY 292385

Product works great at reducing bounce and chucking on rough roads. The major problem I have is having to reinflate the air bag before you go camping and before you leave to go home. I believe Reese could have done better on this for something priced over a grand! 498059

Best decision I've made for my 5th wheel. Was using B&Ws companion slider before it. It is a good hitch but heavier than heck to lift in and out of truck. Reese's goose box hooks up easily and has good ride with the air bag. 369357


Comments

Best way to go if you have a gooseneck hitch and swap from RV to gooseneck trailer a bunch. No more sore back pulling out Companion hitch.

This is a great hitch. Worked out just like I'd hoped. The RV pulls great and I barely feel it back there. If you want to utilize your gooseneck ball and not have to hassle with a fifth wheel hitch, this is the way to go. 341848

Review from a similar Reese Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


Hi, Last September, I bought a Reese Goose Box from Lisa and Sandy. Both went way beyond the call of duty to not only help me out with technical specifications, but to get the Goose Box to my door in a minimal amount of time. I have waited to give a review of the Goose Box, so that I could give a meaningful, time tested, review. Now that I have had the Goose Box for several months, I can say that buying the Goose Box has transformed my pulling a 14,000 lb 5th wheel from a harrowing, bone jarring experience, to one in which I cannot even tell that the travel trailer is behind me. The truck that I use, is a Ford F350 dually that has a diesel engine in it. The trailer is a toyhauler that weighs about 14,000 lbs when loaded. Prior to having the Goosebox, I used a 5th wheel to gooseneck adaptor when pulling the trailer. If the road was glass smooth, the ride was glass smooth. However, add a bridge, an expansion joint, a small bump in the road, or even the slightest imperfection, and the trailer owned the truck. The trailer would cause the truck to chuck fore and aft. This movement translated into the back of the seats to impact the backs of the occupants of the truck, to the point of discomfort. The whole experience was right on the edge of not being worth using the travel trailer. Now that the Goose Box has been installed, the trailer is virtually undetectable when going down the road. There are many times, when I actually will quickly glance in the mirror, to make sure that the trailer is still there. The Goose Box has transformed the ride quality, to where I will continue to enjoy towing a travel trailer. Great product! Great place to buy from! 500497

Review from a similar Reese Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


This was very easy to install and works great. I replaced my 5th wheel King Pin with this GooseBox and I do not regret it one bit. It is very easy to hook up and use, along with every easy indicators showing if it is locked on the Gooseneck ball or not. I followed the installation instructions where they suggest installing 1 bolt hole lower than the 5th wheel King pin, but I ended up adjusting down 1 more bolt hole for more appropriate clearance between the trailer and the bed rails of my truck. 472435

Review from a similar Reese Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


I think that the Reese gooseneck should be a stock option for the original buyer. If the truck has a gooseneck hitch the trailer should come with a Reese gooseneck hitch option. It was not hard to put on but you do need help with installation. Once you use the gooseneck hitch you will never go back to the 5th wheel hitch again. E trailer was great with the ordering and shipping process. A bit more of a process coming to Canada but still pretty easy. I would recommend e trailer to everyone ! 251016

Review from a similar Reese Goose Box in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


We no longer could use the trailer 5th wheel attachment on our trailer we had to convert it to a goose neck for the new tow vehicle. We chose Reese Goosebox 20k with air ride. It's perfect, the air takes the jarring away from trailer as well as the truck. The Rocky Mountains can be unforgiving. And it solved all issues we had prior. Worth the investment. ETrailer is stellar. Customer service is top notch. 374770

I've had this product for over a year now. It looks almost brand new. I've used it to tow my 16,000 lbs trailer approximately 12,000 miles without any issues. I'm very happy with it. No heavy or bulky fifth wheel king pin hitch in the truck bed to deal with. 336945


Comments

This hitch still works great. There are a few rust spots that develop. Cleaning them off and touching them up with some black rust preventative paint does the job.

Have used this for 6,000 miles without any issues. It sure nice being able to unhook the 5th wheel and have a flat truck bed. I have a magnetic nail plate on a vertical rod that I use as a guide to place the hitch over the ball. Works really well. 474218
