I have had a gooseneck adapter on my 5th wheel since I purchased it 5 years ago. I have never had any issues pulling. There have been some tough rides and I feel the chucking and bumps in the road. I have been looking to upgrade to the Reese Goose Box or a Companion turn over hitch that fits and locks into the B&W gooseneck hitch and install a 5th airborne pinbox. I have read a lot of negative posts and comments about gooseneck setups but I don't give much if any credit to those arguments because I assume that those people haven't had or are currently using that type of hitch system. I've read posts about people having doors and cabinets coming apart from stresses from the road that aren't 5th wheels. I have seen posts from people that are using the goose box and rave about it. I believe anyone can have stresses on there camper/trailer frames as well as the contents reguargless of their hitch configuration. Can anyone give a factual statement on this topic other than Lippert voiding the frame warranty for gooseneck adapter setups?
I own a Columbus 320. And I pull with the Goose Box air ride. I can't say enouph about it. It's great. Easy on and off and soft ride. I have the turn over ball in the truck box and air bags for leveling.

there isnt a smoother way to tow. with the air suspended goosebox,chucking and sway from passing trucks is history.To giv you an example,we leave our coffe maker just sitting on the countertop and it has never moved.
