I have a 5th wheel that is held in with four pins so that, if I want to use
the bed, I just pull the pins and remove the hitch. Not sure what
Goosenecks are rated for . My 5th wheel is good upto 23K# (Which is good
because my three car trailer is rated for 21K#).

So what I'm hearing here is it mostly convenience ??? (and maybe a little
weight ?) I would think that farm tractors and stock trailers and some of
the 'hot shot' haulers would carry as much weight as a travel trailer...
wouldn't they ??
but basically I'm hearing that the 'gooseneck' with only the ball in the
middle of the bed is really a convenience for the farmer that needs the bed
space also... ??? and the travel trailer fifth wheel , even if it's a
pickup, it usually a dedicated vehicle for towing the trailer ???
