Car trailer question?

Yup, no biggie. My trailer originally was a gooseneck/ball style. I bought the 5th pin for it, the pins are all pretty common sized, so should not be a problem.

Just need an electric brake controller(I would suggest air over electric, not the new electronic versions)

Only issue with mine was the tube for the insert was too long, I had to cut about a foot off to get it tall enough to be level. All depends on the manufacturer.

There are basically two styles of hitches, round or square tube. Most trailers like that one are the round tube. Mine is the 4" square.

Examples:

I had the electronic version from my pickup, but hated it when I tried it in the Mack.

Before putting it into service I would pull the wheels, check the brakes and service the bearings. Then go over the lights to make sure they are all good.

Here's a pic of one hooked to a rig
