Andersen Ranch Hitch Adapter
About the Andersen Ranch Hitch Adapter

You can use any standard gooseneck hitch in your truck bed with the Andersen Ranch Hitch Adapter attached to the trailer!

Important Note: We do not recommend using the Ranch Hitch adapters (3100 or 3139) on a cushioned or moveable pin box, only on static pin box applications. If you have a cushioned pin box, choose an Andersen Hitches Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Hitch instead.
The Ranch Hitch Adapter is very easy to use. Most gooseneck receivers require you to get into the bed of your truck to latch the coupler; not so with the Ranch Hitch Adapter. The remote cable mechanism allows you to engage and release the coupler while standing on the ground outside your pickup! The bell shaped receiver allows for the hitch ball and adapter to be as much as 3” off center, and still slide into place correctly. With 3” of vertical adjustment you can be sure your trailer matches up level with your truck.
The Ranch Hitch Adapter is quick and easy to install. The installation is simple and takes roughly an hour to complete. To see if the adapter will fit your 5th wheel, do the following: Back your truck into position to hook up your 5th wheel. Measure from the “pin plate” (the bottom of the pin box) down to the top of the ball in the bed of your truck. When the adapter is fully compressed that measurement is 11-3/4”. It has 3” of adjustment, so when it is fully extended that measurement will be 14-3/4”. You should have 5” or 6” of clearance between the over-hang of the trailer and the sideboards of your truck, keeping in mind your 5th wheel should be level for traveling.
