    I doubt Im the first. I would like to put a gooseneck hitch in my taco.

    Nothing heavy just to move stuff around. I only have 2 bumper pulls.

    I was thinking about adapting one of those quick hitch kits.

    My question on this is since you have a GN trailer then what is wrong with the vehicle that has the GN hitch installed for moving it around?
    Also if this is a rather large GN trailer then the empty weight of the trailer could be close to max or above towing capacity of truck let alone pin capacity.

    Ex...my 8X16 dump trailer weighs 6800lbs empty.

    I'm looking at buying a Scamp travel trailer, 19ft, 2400 lbs, and need a gooseneck hitch on my 09 Tacoma.
