B&W Extend a Goose Coupler Mounting Options


This appears to be the perfect solution to allow me to change from a standard bed to short bed truck and keep using an existing horse trailer. However, my trailer does not have a gooseneck pin, but rather two locking bolts and jam nuts. Although this coupler would fit, is it advisable since a fair degree of torque must be applied to the coupling in use and the positive anti-twist resistance provided by the pin would be absent.

This will be a great solution for you. You will still want to use caution the first few times to get a really good feel for the turning radius that you will have and not exceed that point so you don't have any issues with contact between truck and trailer.

Here is whats said in the instructions:

"The coupler must only be used with a hitch equipped with a 2-5/16" ball measuring between 2.283" to 2.313", and a trailer equipped with a conventional 4" inside diameter round sleeve. The sleeve must either have two set bolts, or have at least one set bolt and a safety through pin. Failure to use the proper towing equipment may result in serious injury or death."
