What exactly is the buyer wanting you to do about the current hitch?


He has a ball in his truck. Looking at adapter and hitch, quoted $3000-3800. Goosebox looks to be around $1750 and maybe (my guess) $300-400 for install.
Already dropped as low as I will go for fifth-wheel.


Oh!

He's trying to get you to buy him a Reese Goosebox because he doesn't want to spring for a B&W Companion for $1000 or any other solution on his own.

So he's using his own tow vehicles limited ability to pull a 5th wheel and his unwillingness to purchase appropriate equipment as a negotiating point against you.

Ok well after I finished laughing at him, I know what MY response would be, but I'm sure you are a lot nicer of a fellow than I am.

I would tell him; you buy the trailer; it is up to you to get a properly equipped tow vehicle. Tell him the trailer sale is.."AS IS".

The initial question and additional info you have provided suggests you have skin in the game. Otherwise, I guess its a "why do you care?" kind of question or you are just curious maybe?

My truck only had a gooseneck ball before I purchased my 5th wheel. I purchased a B&W companion (to go with the B&W turnover ball), now I can tow both easily and properly. I have both types trailers, so works great for me...

Tell him or any potential buyer what you want for the trailer and it is up to them to figure out how to tow it.
