Yes, you can use the Bulldog BX1 Gooseneck Coupler Inner Tube # BD1289020300 for your application but you will need to drill out a hole going through your outer tube for the pin. I confirmed this with my contact at Bulldog and I have attached a clip from the installation instructions for you to check out.

If you would rather not go this route then the only other option we have for an inner tube with a 4" diameter that doesn't require the use for a pin going all the way through is the Convert-A-Ball Multi-Cushioned Gooseneck Trailer Coupler # CG. This option is a bit more pricey but that is due to the cushioning inside the tube. This polyurethane cushioning acts as a shock absorber which reduces the bounce and rhythmic vibrations that you normally feel when towing a gooseneck trailer.

The only other option would be to purchase both the inner and outer tube. For this we have the Pro Series Gooseneck Coupler # PS0287800300 which has the same 25,000 lb rating as the BX1 that you initially referenced.
