A gooseneck hitch is designed for use in a pickup truck and is similar to a Fifth Wheel hitch. The difference between the two is that the gooseneck uses a ball and coupler versus a kingpin and fifth wheel hitch. Typically, the trailers that are most commonly used with a gooseneck hitches are horse and livestock trailers.
Gooseneck hitches are offered in a few types of configurations. They are designed to be mounted above or below the pickup bed. Either design (above or below) allows for minimal obstruction when the ball is not in the towing position. This permits full use of the pick-up bed.
The Goose Plate Gooseneck
This product is designed to mount onto the truck bed using the same mounting rail kits which are widely available for the Fifth Wheel product range. When not in use, the plate and ball can be removed, leaving just the rails and allowing full access to the truck bed.
