Jon I am looking at it when on firm ground. I know how a semi fifth wheel will hang you up on a drive way/road that is of set. I am meaning just the sway a gooseneck has when setting level. You can jump up and down of the corner of most gooseneck trailers and get them rocking more than you think. I have had hay throw off the top of the trailer when you would cross a water way at and angle and the trailer whips back.

(quoted from post at 21:30:33 03/16/1Cool So you are saying that if I change my 25 ft gooseneck over to a fifth wheel I can then haul anything I can get on it legally ? I don't think so.


How did you possibly get that from this conversation?

(quoted from post at 06:46:28 03/16/1Cool For years I and all my friends did beach camping with 5th wheel trailers--there was never a goose neck on the beach due to the rough terrain and the inherent stability of the 5th wheel hitch---they are strong and very durable


That may also be because NO RV manufacturer makes a "gooseneck" travel trailer. They only make 5th wheels.

Not to be picky but you can get 3" gooseneck ball/couplers rated for 40,000 lb now.
