I am getting all set up to pull my new 36fb with an F-350. I am considering installing a B&W gooseneck hitch along with a adapter to convert the kingpin to attach to the gooseneck ball.

Does anyone on the forum have any experience with this setup?

Are there any warranty implications if I use this configuration?

Go with the B&W but get their Companion Hitch and stey with the factory king pin. The gooseneck adapters are not recommended by most of the RV builders . Also have not seen any of the adapters made for the weight of a redwood. We toured another brands factory a few years ago and another fellow on the tour stated he had broken his hitch and his frame using an adapter. We have been using B&W products for the past 15 years with no problems and their customer service is the best there is.

I would agree with the Companion. We are using this on our 36RL and it is great

It's a Lippert frame, so I'm sure there is a warranty issue, but you should probably run that question through Redwood.

Lippert will OK the use of the Reese Goose Box as it's not the usual adapter, but totally replaces the OEM King Pin box. If you're inclined to go Goose Neck the Goose Box is the only one that I know of that Lippert does endorse.
