If you have a B&W hitch they have a 5th wheel adapter. Stay far far away from the ones that mount to the 5th wheel hitch to be used with a goose neck hitch.

Be careful with these, I hear some will void trailer warranties and have issues with how the weight is distributed.

What DanCarter suggested might be a viable option. I would put a 5th wheel hit in my bed for a 5th wheel trailer.

Buy a Gooseneck trailer?

Put a 5th wheel hitch in that can be removed?

The ones that attach to the camper are bad bad. I've seen many that buckle bend and break. Most void the campers warranty and will be expensive to fix when it breaks something. The 5th wheel hitch is not strong enough to withstand the forces placed on them from the 2 foot adapter. It's like holding on to the end of a wooden pencil and trying to push your tv with it. It will break.

The first one is like the B&W hitch. I would feel safe with it. The second one is the same principle as the ones I would stay far away from. It will damage your trailer eventually.

The frame pieces under the bed for the GN hitch will usually interfere with the rail mounts for a 5er hitch…they don’t fit well together.

Option 1…pull the existing GN hitch, put it F/S on C/L, purchase and install the B&W GN/5er companion hitch setup. (co$tly)

Option 2…rare chance of finding a 5er hitch mount that will fit with the existing GN hitch.

Option 3…GN adapter for the 5er’s pin box.
This method applies excessive twist/flex to the RV’s forward frame, which can cause the sides to de-laminate in the step-up area and/or inner frame damage forward. Many users have reported no problems in using them, but most Mfrs will void their warranty if one is used. However, there are a few models that are built to run with either…but that’s a short list. Best case scenario, not much happens (with a smaller trailer)…Worse case scenario, the frame shears, falls, and crushes the bed rails on your truck. (Can you say Lippert?)
