5th wheel coupler on gooseneck trailer

Has anyone tried a 5th wheel coupler insert in a gooseneck trailer? I pull a 5th wheel camper and a gooseneck trailer, sometimes both in the same day. It's a real pain to switch back and forth from the 5th wheel to gooseneck.
I have seen the gooseneck adapter for the 5th wheel kingpin, but it looks like it would put too much stress on the 5th wheel.
I found a kingpin tube that replaces the gooseneck ball/tube on the net the other day, and cannot seem to find it now. You remove the gooseneck coupler and tube and insert the new tube with the kingpin, adjust it to the correct height, and you're set. Has anyone had any experience with such a creature.

2005 F350 CC Lariat FX4. B&W gooseneck w/Companion 5th wheel hitch. Reflex spray in liner. Husky splash guards, Husky floor liners, WeatherTech floorliners. B&W Stow & go.

NO experience but I would agree this would be the best alternative.

Page three. Redneck Trailer Supplies. They are a wholesaler. You will have to find a retailer.

Go to the main page and find the closet office. Call them to find out who your closest retailer is.

I use the kingpin on my goose. Just dont overload the fifthwheel. Goose is 26, Make sure your fifthwheel is same.

Redneck isn't a retailer. You have to be a distributor or a manufacture to buy from them.


Where did you learn about Redneck anyways? Probably from a link that some "parts changer from an RV place" put up, right?
