Options for Towing 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailers with the Same Truck

Question:

Can one get a 5th wheel hitch with this. I am looking for a goosneck and a 5th wheel hitch for I pull both types of trailers.

Expert Reply:

The best way to proceed will depend on if there is already a fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch installed on your truck.

If you already have a gooseneck hitch installed, we offer several different adapters that will allow you to tow a fifth wheel using a gooseneck ball. The Rapid Hitch Ranch Hitch adapter, part # AM3100 is one of our best sellers, but keep in mind that using the adapters can void some fifth wheel warranties because of the extra stress they can place on the frame of the fifth wheel.

If you have a B&W, Bulldog Under Bed or Reese Hide-a-Goose, you could use the Hi-Rise Adapter, part # 9480.

The best practice is to install a fifth wheel hitch and use the rails to mount a gooseneck adapter plate like the # 49080 you mentioned.
