This product is just what the doctor ordered. The instruction sheets are good, and show the manufacturer spent a goodly amount of time getting them just right. I would recommend this hitch to anyone with a flatbed, having a turnover ball installed, get this hitch. it is easy and fast to install and the cost is just right. 476727

Installed this hitch adapter on a small-ish fifth wheel trailer (2007 arctic fox 21-5R). I've waited to review now that I've finished pulling the trailer through the Canadian Rocky mountains to Vancouver island and back ~4000km or 2500 Miles. The hitch installed fairly easily in about 2 hours, with careful attention to centering and torque specifications. The hitch performed as it should throughout my recent trip, no problems with function whatsoever. The only downside I see with this hitch adapter is the need to raise the trailer a few inches higher each time you hitch/unhitch, in order to clear the gooseneck ball. Also, when nearing a full 90 degree angle between truck & trailer, the pin box may rub against the bed rails. This is partly due to the ride height of my truck. Otherwise, excellent solution for avoiding the Fifth wheel hitch in your truck box! Picture attached, dodge 3500 regular 6 foot box (levelling kit, 35" wheels) with arctic fox fifth wheel trailer. No modifications to trailer other than the ranch hitch adapter with offset for short box truck. 154339

I have been using the Ranch Hitch #3100 Straight Adapter for 3 years. Converting the 5th wheel to goose neck was awesome. Much easier to hook up and a smoother, quieter pull. After purchasing a new trailer I noticed that the trailer was too close to the cab of my short bed truck. I found the Ranch Hitch #3139 with 8" offset adapter. It installs easy and gives me 8 more inches away from my truck cab. Excellent! Turning corners is much more comfortable! 111386


Comments

How do I install this? Do I have to drill holes? How long does it take?

There is a threaded collar that goes around the king-pin. The Ranch hitch is threaded on to the collar and tightened to 400 ft. lbs. Then you will either drill 4 holes into the pin box and install bolts, or use four 1-inch tack welds to weld the Ranch Hitch to the the pin box. This is a relatively permanent install.

I still have to drill four holes and I had to rent a puller for $6.00 but so far I am impressed with how easy the installation was, but ask me again in two weeks when I have to move my fifth wheel, But for the price, and design compared to other adaptors, I have no complaints. Just not sure how well it will work with the offset. 91062

Works great, for what I need. I do prefer the fifth wheel hitch, but did not want to put the rails in my truck for that hitch. I do have to use the backup balls and my camera for the goose neck hitch but its not too bad.

After having this on my (small) 5th wheel travel trailer for more than 2 years, I have discovered the major problem with it... Because the hitch point is so much lower, it has created unusual leverage over the kingpin box and now my trailer frame is cracking :( Your trailer must be VERY shored up around the kingpin box to resist the extension of torque by essentially making your kingpin box much longer. I loved the idea of not having a 5th hitch in the box of my truck and the removable gooseneck ball instead, but I now know that a complete change-out of the kingpin box to a gooseneck hitch would have been more reliable. I am now in Mexico with a cracked trailer frame due to this :( 325391

The folks at etrailer arranged faster shipping that advertised at no charge and the adapter arrived lots quicker than expected. The product is obviously better than the former adapter. Lots heaver and the ball receiver is easier to center above the ball. Two EXCELLENT pieces of advice were included in the instructions. One was about bracing the hitch to prevent damage or coming loose from the trailer. The best advice regarded surging, or chucking. My previous adapter did both and neither a trailer manufacturer nor the RV people who sold and installed it could diagnose or fix the problem. This issue for me is important in that I have 3 fused vertebrae and stenosis. As usual, RanchHand is leading the pack! I have a RanchHand "cowcatcher" bumper and it has done the job really well also. Excellent product, Superb Advice! Many Thanks! Truman Powell Tyler, Texas 22844

This product is great and just what I was looking for at the time. It was fairly easy to attach to the king pin to convert it to a goose neck ball which is what I already had in my truck bed. It attaches rely solid and can easily meet the 24000 lb rating I am sure. Being a short bed truck this hitch had the 8" offset which has the same effect as a 5th wheel slider hitch. The only problem with the offset is it puts the angular body of the trailer hitch closer to the side walls of the bed. Also when I remove the offset portion it also helps deter theft as there is nothing to hitch to! I have since bought a long bed diesel truck so I will be buying the straight adapter soon. 371861

Purchased this gooseneck hitch to convert my fifth wheel travel trailer to a gooseneck. This product is easily attached to the fifth wheel king pin and attaches very solid. The hitch release cable makes it simple to secure and release from your ball. I am very satisfied with my choice in purchasing this product and would highly recommend it. I have purchased this and other products from etrailer and have always received the best service. 347375

The people at etrailer are very helpful. She put my order in as I was on the phone with her and she sent me an email about 1 hour after that letting me know it had shipped. The product came in about 4 days with there free shipping. The item was just as I expected. I would buy from them again. I am very happy with the service, shipping and value of the product. Thank you so much etrailer.com 198155

Product shipped right away and arrived way sooner than I was anticipating. Installation was easy - however the only thing that needs to be accounted for is the length of the shaft. It made the trailer ride tipped back and had to do some modifications to make it work perfectly. Construction of the product was good and it did exactly what I needed to accomplish Would recommend . 358743

Hitch is great and a breeze to install. I cant say enough about the service I received from etrailer. I ordered the wrong hitch (my fault) so I called etrailer they immediately sent me a return authorization and shipped me the correct hitch. They shipped the replacement hitch on Thursday morning I received it Friday. Thats awesome. Thanks etrailer. 233210

Product works great. Me and my 14 year old son put it on our camper in about 30 minutes. If you can't bolt it to the camper hitch system like the directions recommend, make sure you weld it on as the alternative directions say. 100293

  • Comparing the Ranch Hitch Gooseneck Adapter and the Draw Tite Hi-Rise Adapter
  • The Ranch Hitch part # AM3139 is a great solution for towing a fifth wheel trailer with a truck that has a gooseneck hitch. The advantage to this over the Hi Rise part # 9480 is that the gooseneck hitch in the truck does not matter. As long as there is a 2-5/16 inch ball in the bed of the truck this adapter will fit it. The Hi Rise has a more specific fit. It can only fit B&W Turnover Ball, Hide-A-Goose by Draw Tite or Reese, or Under-Bed by Bulldog. If you had one of these hitches this...
