Very few, if any, 5ers have a strong enough frame under the overhang of the 5er to handle the increased leverage of a gooseneck adapter. Therefore, almost all manufacturers of RV 5ers will void the warranty if you convert the little short kingpin into a much longer gooseneck hitch adapter.
But here in ranch country lots of the ranchers have the same problem as you do. They have horse and livestock and equipment trailers with gooseneck hitches, and an RV trailer with a kingpin. So many of them forfeit the RV trailer's warranty and have a local farmer/rancher welding shop beef up the frame under the overhang so it can handle the increased leverage of the gooseneck adapter. None of the ranchers that have that work done by that welding shop have ever had a problem with warping or bending the metal frame under the overhang, but I wouldn't trust just any welding shop to design it and weld it.
