How do I tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer with my Gooseneck Hitch?

YOU HAVE 2 OPTIONS:

OPTION #1: If you already have a Gooseneck Hitch Ball installed in the bed of your truck, you can purchase a 5th Wheel Hitch that installs in the ball hole of the Gooseneck hitch. Have a look at B&W Trailer Hitch RVK3500 B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch:

20K Companion 5th WheelThis Fifth Wheel Hitch sits right on top of a B&W Turnover Ball. Pull only 1 pin and the hitch removes completely from the bed. A great option if you want to frequently switch between trailer types. 

If you don't have the B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch System, go to our under bed gooseneck hitch category and search your truck to find the complete setup for you.


OPTION #2: A second option is a 5th Wheel Adapter that bolts to the king pin plate. 
 

Fifth Wheel Adjustable Adapter 12

This adapter lets you tow your 5th Wheel trailer with your gooseneck hitch by simply bolting to your trailer's king pin and connecting to the gooseneck ball.

These adapters have to be the correct height to tow the trailer. Measure from the top of the gooseneck ball to the bottom of the king pin plate. 

Warning: these adapters are not compatible with sidewinder or air ride 5th Wheel king pins.

I have a gooseneck hitch in my dad's garage that he wants me to use, but I've never used it before to tow a trailer. These tips seem really great if the hitch ball is already installed in the bed of my truck. What should I do if there isn't a hitch ball? I've only ever set up a truck to a trailer that already had a hitch ball, so I need a few instructions to make sure that I do it right.
