Gooseneck conversion

Anyone have experience with these guys:
Executive Fifth-Wheel Gooseneck Conversion (Torsion-Flex).

Looking to switch to a gooseneck for my chaparral 295x

I called Reese to see if their goosebox would work, but they said not with my ramboxes on my truck. These guys said it would work, I've just next heard of them.

Thoughts, opinions?

Truck 2018 ram 2500 4x4 mega cab short bed with rambox

There have been a few threads about it lately. Search for Gen-Y and you should find a few posts. All the reports have been positive so far.

I believe a buddy of mine just switched to it. He has a long bed dually, so I can't help you with the short bed + rambox aspect.

If you want, we're camped at the same campground and I can take some pictures.

Here's what he posted to a Facebook group that we're both in:

It is BEEFY, lol. It weighs in at about 180lbs.

Here are the things not included with it, you get no new bolts, no chains, no hooks.
I bought 5/8 11 x 2.5in grade 8 bolts, nuts, lockwashers. I did reuse the factory self locking washers because they have teeth that I thought was useful. That is the size of the holes on the trailer and hitch.
The chain is a 6.5 foot grade 70, 3/8 section connected to 2 grade 70 hooks with locks. I ran a single piece of chain for strength.

Can he go full 90? Any way to measure the distance to the top side rail? Mine is narrower than his.
