B&W ooseneck hitches? 5th wheel conversion?
I need to add a hitch for my fifth wheel. I don't want the rails in the bed, and I don't want to have to haull a 100# hitch in and out of the truck everytime I decide to use the trailer. I have been thinking about going to a gooseneck type hitch, with a king pin adapter on my trailer. I have found B&W, which has a hidden ball- when not in use, just flip it over and it sits flush with the bed. Anyone have any experience with these?
Anyone with king pin adapter experience? They are pricey, but it seems less hassle than dragging the 5th wheel hitch around.
I want a heavy duty bedliner for my truck, but with 5th wheel rails, at best you have to carve it up for them to fit. With the gooseneck, I would simply have to cut a round plug out of the liner, and use it to cover the hitch in the bed. I still have to carve the liner, but not to any great extent...
