I would not even consider putting that pos in my Denali. Not to mention getting it in the bed. Would it clear the wheel wells? I would not even try. My tiny little single axle trailer could handle that junk. If it could, it would not go in the bed of my 75 thousand dollar truck.

The fact that a 3/4 ton diesel 4x4 "Denali" even exists is reason enough to cry. Like every stupid PLATINUM tailgate I'm forced to stare at

You like the soft feel of Alacantra leather on your taint, big twuck guy? Your boyfriend sure does.

according to CA DMV goose necks are ok. They list them under other 5th wheel attachments. Im sure if you looked at other states more closely you would find the loop hope to allow goose necks.

Michigan specifically requires that they be a semi-truck style 5th wheel (I asked the MSP as I was curious from a thread on here) as does Arizona per: https://www.goodsam.com/article/defa...eID=1195129#AZ

Me either but it does say to two more than one vehicle you must have a commercial class A with proper endorsements.

True
But I’ve seen lots of late model pick tailgates bent from driving a riding lawnmower or atv on

I bet a super duty tailgate holds more than the “legendary” square body Chevy.

There is also a big difference between a static load and one bouncing down the road.

Well now that they've got expensive backup cameras in them then need to be better built.

As a person who owns and tows a double set-up for recreation, I personally wouldn't use a goose ball set-up. Goose ball couplers don't seem to have the attachment beef of a king pin/5th wheel set-up, especially when pulled up vertically.

My set-up is a 15 Ram 2500 4x4 short crew, 20' loadmax (loadtrail) gooseneck with adjustable neck and kingpin insert, and a 20' 2 axle travel trailer. Given the amount that the trailers can heave and wiggle around at times, I'll stick with a kingpin.

@crashnzuk

Are you pulling a gooseneck on the truck?
Cuz the first part of your post is confusing...
Are you referring to the gooseneck trailer hooked onto a bumper pull ball hitch?
It looks like you are running a converter hitch (5th wheel pin) on a g.n. Trailer?(yes?)

I will throw this in, for those who never thought about it...

Ever wonder why a g.n. Hitch must run safety chains?
Off road they articulate great but...

I have never towed with a 5th wheel but I don't see how it would tow a lot better than a gooseneck for a pickup truck application. It puts the pivot point several inches higher than a gooseneck which would seem to apply more leverage to make the truck sway around curves. Maybe the plate contact eliminates the added leverage. Has anyone on here towed similar trailers both ways and can tell a huge difference?

I understand the extra vertical holding power of a 5th wheel for a dual trailer setup.

any restriction on goose vs 5er has nothing to do with the minuscule pivot point difference and everything to do with the security of the connection.
