    Default 3pt hitch - 5th wheel/gooseneck

    I have 2ea trailers - one a gooseneck horse trailer (appx 28 feet), and a 25-foot 5th wheel camper.

    I'd like to be able to move them around with my tractor.
    I've seen gooseneck hitches for 3-point connection on the tractor - but have never seen a hookup for 5th wheel..

    Anyone ever seen one, and know where I'd find one?

    thank you in advance

    I have not seen a 5th wheel hitch for the 3-pt trailer movers. However, they do make gooseneck to 5th wheel hitch adapters. You can try that and see if it'll work on your trailer mover. If I remember correctly, Reese or Husky makes them. I was considering the same issue awhile back, but never really followed through with it.

    B&W makes an 5th wheel adapter that fits in their gooseneck hitch. If you had a tube at the top of the 3pt attachment you could put either in to move trailers.

    Sorry I don't have any pics to post.
    I built my own on the box blade just behind the top link connection.

    It consist of a piece of pipe (sleave) with an ID the same size (a hair bigger actually) as the pin on the 5th wheel. It has a flat plate or collar around the top of it for the pin box to rest on. Then I have a pipe with a 2 3/8 ball welded to the top of it that I can slide into and pin in the sleave.

    I hope this makes sense. I try to get some pic's and post back this evening.

    Neat idea Firedog. Next time I get to welding on the box blade.. I'd like to do something like that.
