Everything arrived in perfect condition. With a little trim of the bed liner the adapter fit perfectly as described. My Curt A-16 hitch looks great paired up with the gooseneck adapter. Ready to hit the road! 402615

Review from a similar Curt X5 in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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!

Review from a similar Curt X5 in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

Review from a similar Curt X5 in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

Review from a similar Curt X5 in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

Review from a similar Curt X5 in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

Review from a similar Curt X5 in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

Review from a similar Curt X5 in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

Review from a similar Curt X5 in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

Fits perfectly into curt goose neck hitch. My reese 5th wheel hitch fits on the rails perfect. I haul dirt bikes in my truck so being able to take the rails out is perfect..... nothing in the way of loading or unloading 99283


Comments

Will the Curt gooseneck to 5th wheel rails adapter work with a Pro Series Slider 5th wheel? That is, will the slots match up?

-- comment by: Mike - 05/11/2014

Yes. The tab slot spacing is pretty universal amongst most manufacturers including Curt and Pro Series. Your Pro Series slider will drop right in to the the Curt X-5 adapter.

Review from a similar Curt X5 in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

Review from a similar Curt X5 in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

Review from a similar Curt X5 in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

Managed to get my hands on a curt E16 5th wheel hitch and couldn’t be happier with the combination. The drop in weighs 100lbs and is honestly really easy to install. The hardest part is getting it from where it’s stored to the back of the truck. 460578

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

Excellent product that solved my issue of needing both a gooseneck & fifth wheel hitch in the same truck. Drops right in & fits perfect even with a spray in bedliner. Just towed our 20,000 lb toy hauler with it this past weekend- it performed flawlessly. It actually felt no different than our other truck with the fifth wheel rails bolted in, plus it can be removed & you can be back to pulling a gooseneck in minutes. 494852

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?

Review from a similar Curt X5 in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

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

I think this is great very handy and easy to operate just drop it in and go. The one thing I found out when I first used mine was there is a only one way to put it in and pin it properly. I had to take it out and turn it 180 degrees and drop it in, then the pin went in all the way. It's a very tight fit and that's important to me. Great product! 475630

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.

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

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

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

Ask the Experts about this Andersen Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


  • 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...
