Can Convert-A-Ball 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5GX1216 Be Used Without the Offset


Can the C5GX1216 be used without the offset?, i.e.will the ball holder shaft fit into the main trunk base without the offset piece?


Expert Reply:

The Convert-A-Ball 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter w/ Offset, part # CAB-C5GX1216, is designed as one piece and to be used as a 5th-wheel-to-gooseneck adapter that requires an offset of 7-1/2 inches. It is not made to be taken apart. It would be used on trucks with shorter than 8-foot beds, but not shorter than 6-foot beds.

If you do not need the offset on your 2008 Ford F-150 you can use the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter, part # CAB-C5G. This is the same adapter as above, but without the offset.

I am including a link to a FAQ page on adapters for towing a 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch.
