My Globe was too much for my 929, I though....., but man what a candidate for a gooseneck if you have a 931. I have some of the heavy trailer hitch plates that would work perfect. Guys with 931s should be all over these trailers.

Our M923 didn't like it so we just bought a M915a1 for a good price rather than mess with anything
That works too.

A trailer that high on a pintle has to be prone to rolling when it's loaded to the front. Wes seems to prove the roll issue. as a fifth wheel, it would be much more stable and guys with 931s are looking for things to pull. Couple that with new duals and you could have a super heavy trailer...a great deal for the guy that can make a heavy tongue.

Hi tobyS,

That metal plate with the King Pin on it... About how wide and long is that? Just wondering if that could be made into a weight box to go on the 5th wheel on my tractor. That would make hauling a pintle trailer a LOT safer if the tractor has some weight on the back tires.

Just fishing Toby. It might be that by the time I shipped it from Indiana to North Carolina I may be upside down. Figure I don't know though if I don't ask :)

I think someone even made a bed and attached with the kingpin, so removable.

These things are really heavy....guess 500#. Top plate is 3/8 and bottom is 1/2. It's about 36" x 48".

Strangely enough Toby, five hundred pounds isn't bad at all for a pretty tough bottom for a weight box. More than likely that much or more steel around it would be required to close it on 4 sides. Then another several thousand pounds of weight in the box to create enough down pressure on the rear tires.

Think maybe I need to go read some about a weight box...

Would be easy to connect but you have two axis to support. I have bridge steel that could make a 2 ton bed.

Not everyone can say they bought a bridge.....I did.....90 tons.

I would think that would be enough weight. Guessing, but that much weight in a small space should help achieve the goal. The drawings that I have seen look a lot like the back of a 5th Wheel wrecker boom. Connection point one is the King Pin, Connection point two is the left and right frame rails. If memory serves me, there are ratchet binders to tie the back end down securely. (BIG binders!) Crummy picture below:

Yessir, I honestly don't know anybody else with their own bridge!
