Gooseneck hitch and regular hitch?

I need to know if I can have a gooseneck hitch installed even though I already have a standard 5th wheel hitch in place. I have a need to occasionally tow a horse trailer with a gooseneck and I also need to tow my 5th wheel with my already installed BD3 Trailersaver hitch. Of course I would need to remove the BD3 hitch in order to use the gooseneck. Does anyone know for sure if this can be done?? Thanks in advance.

They make adapters as well for the goosneck prtion of your horse trailer to convert it to a 1/5 wheel puck. The 4'' tube with goose ball slides out and you slide up a new tube with puck on end instead of ball coupler. If you already have a 1/5 in your truck.

Assuming your 5er hitch has "industry standard" in-bed rails, such as Reese or Curt bed rails, then you can simply insert a "The Goose" adapter into those bed rails instead of the 5er hitch. I have that combo and it works great for dragging a 20k gooseneck dually trailer.

Grumpy ole man with over 50 years towing experience. Now my heaviest trailer is a 7,000-pound enclosed cargo trailer, RV is a 5,600 pound Skyline Nomad Joey 196S, and my tow vehicle is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew.
