What do I need with Convert-a Ball 5th wheel to Gooseneck adapter

I have one I want to use on my 2016 F250 regular bed (6'8"?) to pull my 5th wheel out to the lease. I'm reading I might need an offset gooseneck ball to go into my B&W turnover gooseneck hitch.
I'm hoping one of you guys has done something similar. Thanks

I've already got the "Convert a Ball" model CAB-C5G adapter that goes from 5th wheel to gooseneck. I understand there may be clearance issues when turning using that type of adapter though.
Did you experience any turning radius issues? Sure would hate to cave in the back of my cab!

No issues as there were several adjustments that one could utilize...

Mine was fifth wheel/ trailer

Dang, hate that you already bought the convert-a-ball as I would have recommended the Anderson hitch as it works with short beds and won't void your trailers frame warranty. I've had mine for a few years and wouldn't go back to a regular fifth wheel hitch even though I have a long bed now. Mounts directly to my gooseneck ball and I can take it in and out in just a couple of minutes.

Andersen or PullRite SuperLite 2600.
Andersen is aluminum and weighs maybe 40#. SuperLite 2600 is steel and weighs about 55#. Both are great and remove from the bed in minutes.
Neither cause possible stress damage to the 5th wheel frame.

I'm pulling a 18,000GVW 5th with the PullRite.
