My Curt representative tells me that they don't offer an X5 adapter model that would be compatible with your Draw-Tite # 9465-54 under bed gooseneck hitch.

If you have a long bed truck, the Draw-Tite Hi-Rise Gooseneck to 5th wheel hitch adapter, part # 9480 would work well for you. Another option would be the Reese Goosebox, which would replace the existing 5th wheel's pin box. The Goosebox will allow the 5th wheel to connect directly to the gooseneck ball, without an adapter needed. The Goosebox is pin box specific, though. It'll only work with certain model number pin boxes. If you have the Lippert 0719, 1621 or 1621HD pin box, use the # RP94716 with its 16,000 lb capacity. If you have the Lippert 1621 or 1621HD pin box and needed a 20,000 lb capacity, use # RP94720. For a Lippert 0115, 1116 or 1716 and a 16,000 capacity, use the # RP94716-61301. Using an adapter can be hard on the frame of the fifth wheel, some manufacturers will void the trailer frame's warranty if an adapter is used but Lippert, who is a major manufacturer of trailer frames actually endorses uses the Goosebox.
