Personally I think a 5th wheel hitch pulles better than a gooseneck. Most gooseneck trailers are set up to have a kingpin that can be slid in place of the ball reciever. Just make sure the 5th whgrl hitch is rated according to your trailer. I had a bad case of a 16k reece sliding 5th wheel hitch sliding while in motion. But the hitch was way over loaded.
Just makin sure I dont know a lot about Gn's yet..
as for 5th wheels.. I agree they do seem like they would pull better im just concerned about if i ever have to pull into an uneven area and articulation limitations on the 5th wheel setups
