Hitches?

My son bought a 5th wheel and the previous owner used a 5th wheel to goose neck adapter. Do any of you use this type of hitch?
Any recommendations?

Recommendation.........

Don't.

Goose neck adapter can put more strain on pin box structure especially if pin box is extended type...leverage affect.

Goose Neck trailers are structurally built for that strain
5th wheel pin box is not





Just Goggle '5th wheel Pin Box Failure'
Structurally just NOT the same trailers

If he has a B&W ball over or similar in bed of truck, have him look at the Andersen Ultimate Aluminum hitch. It is what use and love it. Weighs 32#, no grease, no clunking and clanging, very tight tolerances, made on USA.

They just re designed the Ultimate since they have been having hitches come back with bent tubes from hard braking. 14K and under they would be ok but my opinion a 20K B&W companion would be the best bet.
