Quickly and easily convert your recessed
gooseneck hitch to a sturdy 5th-wheel trailer hitch. 2 Lightweight
pieces for fast installation. Wraparound jaw has a locking bar for added
security. Pivoting head allows easy hookup and helps limit chucking.
are a variety of adapters on the market that let you tow a fifth-wheel
trailer with a gooseneck hitch. You can use a coupler adapter that
replaces the pin box on your fifth-wheel trailer and then attaches to
the gooseneck hitch in your truck bed. But these adapters often require
modifications to your trailer that can void the warranty. Another option
would be using fifth-wheel rails that mount directly to your gooseneck
hitch, usually by dropping into the hitch's ball hole. But to do this
you have to make 2 separate purchases - the adapter plate that has the
rails and a standard fifth-wheel hitch. With the Demco Recon, you get a
heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch that mounts in your truck bed by
connecting directly to your gooseneck hitch with the included
components. No modifications are required to your truck or trailer. And
no additional parts are required for the system to work.
single-piece, strong wraparound jaw completely surrounds your trailer's
king pin for 360 degrees of contact. This wraparound jaw provides a
more secure connection than standard 2-piece jaws that close in on the
king pin from the sides. The increased jaw-to-king-pin contact on the
Recon hitch offers tighter tolerances around the king pin, which
minimizes both rattle and chucking, for a smooth, quiet ride.
3/4" thick solid steel locking bar spans the area in front of the jaw.
This bar provides an added barrier of protection against accidental
disconnection so you can have peace of mind that your trailer is secure.
The locking bar is attached to the jaw and to the spring-loaded handle.
The bar automatically locks when the jaw closes around your king pin.
double pivoting, cushioned head improves your towing experience
dramatically by helping to reduce jarring and unwanted noise. Built-in
pins allow the hitch head to pivot back and forth and side to side. And
hookup is easy because the hitch head will automatically pivot to the
proper angle when it comes into contact with your pin box.
dampeners help to cushion the movement from the pivoting head and to
reduce towing noise. These dampeners are built into the head assembly to
cushion the head's side-to-side pivoting.
This hitch is designed to attach to the 2-5/16" ball on your gooseneck hitch.
the hitch is quick and easy because of its lightweight, 2-piece design.
First, attach the base to your gooseneck ball. A coupler pin is
installed underneath the ball and the coupler is tightened to keep the
Recon secure. Then simply slide the head assembly into the opening in
the base. There are 3 different height settings to choose from - just
slide the head up or down to find your desired height.
you have chosen your desired height, use the included pin to secure the
head to the base. Finally, tighten the bolt to eliminate any movement
