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 ???
