Recommended Offset 5th Wheel To Gooseneck Adapter For Additional Turning Clearance In 2020 Ram 1500


The hitch is located center of rear axle. Looking to get more clearance for turning my jaco 23.5 rbs j lite fifth wheel trailer currently I have 27” from my hitch to the inside cab direction of my box I would like to get 40” with a offset hitch adapter or convert it to straight gooseneck. The hitch is a Reese 10k revolution vhd-10k22sw

I may have an option for you, but the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter w/8" Offset for Short-Bed Trucks # AM3139 you were looking at will only give you a total of 8" offset. Combined with your orginal 27" of clearance this will only bring you to 35" which is a bit short of the 40" of clearance you were looking for. Besides using your Reese Revolution as designed with a 5th wheel hitch, this will be your best option.

If you choose to go this route I recommend taking the truck and trailer to an empty parking lot with a friend and have them check your cab to trailer clearance while you make turns so you can get comfortable with the limits of your setup.

You will also need the # AM3103 to install the 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter.

To use the # AM3139 with the 10k Reese Revolution on your Jayco 23.5 RBS J Lite 5th wheel trailer you will need to lock the pin box out as shown in the included diagram.

I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
