Ranch Hitch Adapter

Free ground shipping anywhere in the lower 48 states!

If you want to pull a 5th wheel trailer but don't want to lose your truck bed to a bulky 5th wheel hitch, we have the solution for you! You can use any standard gooseneck hitch in your truck bed with our Ranch Hitch Adapter attached to the trailer.

The Ranch Hitch Adapter is the only 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter on the market that meets V19 Certification. V19 is the strongest safety certification available for gooseneck connections. It can pull a trailer weighing up to 24,000 lbs with 6,000 lbs tongue weight.

The Ranch Hitch Adapter is very easy to use. Most gooseneck receivers require you to get into the bed of your truck to latch the coupler; not so with the Ranch Hitch Adapter. The remote cable mechanism allows you to engage and release the coupler while standing on the ground outside your pickup. The bell shaped receiver allows for the hitch ball and adapter to be as much as 3" off center, and still slide into place correctly. With 3" of vertical adjustment you can be sure your trailer matches up level with your truck.

We now offer the adapter with an 8" offset for use with shortbed trucks. The extra 8" gives you more room between the over-hang of your trailer and the cab of your truck allowing you to turn more easily. The offset version includes all the same benefits of the straight version and is also rated for 24,000 lbs and 6,000 lbs tongue weight.

Our Ranch Hitch Adapter is quick and easy to install. (For full instructions click the "installation instructions" link at the top of this page.) The installation is simple and takes roughly an hour to complete. To see if the adapter will fit your 5th wheel, do the following: Back your truck into position to hook up your 5th wheel. Measure from the "pin plate" (the bottom of the pin box) down to the top of the ball in the bed of your truck. When the adapter is fully compressed that measurement is 11 3/4". It has 3" of adjustment, so when it is fully extended that measurement will be 14 3/4". You should have 5" or 6" of clearance between the over-hang of the trailer and the sideboards of your truck, keeping in mind your 5th wheel should be level for traveling.
