Does Offset of B and W Extend a Goose Work as Well As Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch Offset


Hello, I apologize if this question is redundant, however as opposed to the sliding 5th wheel for a ram 2500 6’4 Box. Would an extend a goose hitch by bw allow me to have the proper clearance to executed a 90 degree turn?


Expert Reply:

The problem with offsets installed on the trailer being towed is that when you need the offset the most (in a tight turn) the offset is diminished since the offset turns with the trailer. Basically it really doesn't help much when needed unlike a slider hitch which moves the pivot point back instead which allows the offset to stay where it's needed around turns.
