Fifth Wheel & Gooseneck

A commonly asked question amongst those who are looking to tow in the bed of their truck may be whether they need a gooseneck or a fifth wheel. These trailers and adapters are different from each other in how they mount to your truck. Gooseneck options mount to your truck using a ball and coupler, located in the bed of the truck. Fifth-wheel hitches are secured with a kingpin, which slides into the in-bed hitch, engaging a set of jaws that securely locks it in place. In addition, fifth wheels also provide increased stability with a pivoting plate that rests on top of the hitch.  

Advantages and Disadvantages

 Both the gooseneck and fifth wheel help relocate the towing point from below the rear bumper to inside the bed. This repositions weight over the rear axle. In comparison to a traditional ball hitch that would mount to the rear bumper of your truck. Some advantages of a gooseneck are its compact size and simplicity while decreasing trailer sway and increasing control while towing.  

Keep in mind, when towing various types of trailers, there can be advantages and disadvantages. For example, taller trailers can mean more road or wind noise and can be less stable. Taking advantage of upgraded mounting options can help provide a quieter ride, and more control when towing. Keep in mind, your bed space is limited. This can be a factor when selecting the right mounting option for your vehicle. 

Have multiple trailers? Gen-Y Hitch provides their Executive Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck adapters that allow you to convert your trailer quickly and easily. This product functions as a conversion box for fifth-wheel applications to transfer from a fifth-wheel to a gooseneck if your truck is already outfitted with an in-bed hitch ball. Furthermore, Gen-Y adapters come equipped with torsion-flex technology which provides up to a 90% smoother ride and come in a variety of different pin weight ranges, from 18,000 to over 30,000 lbs. of towing capacity. So, if you are running multiple trailers and don’t want the headache of constantly swapping hitches, a Gen-Y Adapter might give you the flexibility you need.
