Pre-Owned Wildwood - converted gooseneck

We just purchased our first camper! A 1999 Wildwood "fifth wheel"! However, The previous owners had it permanently converted to a gooseneck. They had the 5th wheel removed and welded on a gooseneck. My FIL is letting us use his dually to haul it until we can get a hitch installed in our truck. Problem being, his dually has a 5th wheel hitch, not a gooseneck.

Am I better off leaving the gooseneck as is and purchasing a converter/adapter so it will work with the fifth wheel hitch? Or should we see about getting the gooseneck completely removed and changed BACK to a fifth wheel?

Thanks for any info you can give!

The main questions is how they converted it. Do you have any pics. Was it done professionally or by a back grad mechanic. You can get a gooseneck plate that snaps in the rails for fifthwheels. I have both in my truck.
