I have a 34' montana fifth wheel trailer and I would like to buy one of those goose neck adapters so I can use a goose neck ball in my truck instead of a fifth wheel set up. I have heard rumors that it might be bad for my trailer since it is so big, to use the conversion. the rumor has it that the fifth wheel part of the trailer could be damaged by the different weight distribution?? Can someone clarify this rumor, or maybe give me some peace of mind in doing the goose ball. I like the idea of the hide away goose ball that can be mounted??
I'm the Montana dealer in San Antonio, And have been for 9 years now. Yes technically it will void the Chassis warranty, But if you bought it from a good dealer, They will work with you on warranty issues, In all my years I have never declined a warranty issue because of a goose neck adapter. Plus the ones I use slip on, So if you ever sell it, The adapter can easily be removed. As far as how it rides, There should be no difference, The goose neck adapter slips over the king pin on the pin box, The weight is distributed i little different, But not enough to matter.
Good luck, Oh and what floor plan did you get!
Let me re-Fraze what I said. IF keystone wanted to fight a warranty claim. IE frame cracked or bent , The dealer IF A$$holes, Could drop you in the grease, More than likely, This would not happen. If you ever have an issue, Please feel free to PM me, I'll walk you through the proper steps to handle any issue.
