Gooseneck trailer with 5th wheel hitch?

What kind of adapter would be best for pulling a gooseneck trailer with a 8000 lb hummer h1 on it? I have a pullrite superglide 16k 5th wheel hitch that came with the truck. There are a couple different kinds of adapters from what I've seen, but want to know what kind is safest and best to tow with.

Change your hitch to a B&W Gooseneck Hitch | B & W Trailer Hitches then you can haul both gooseneck and 5th wheel.

I only plan to haul with a gooseneck 1-2 times, so its not really worth the cost/hassle.

I looked on Tweety's and pull right actually has several adapters that range from $243-$485. All of them would be safe to tow with you just want to make sure you get the right weight rating.

Is one of these better than the other? Any other options?

I pulled a 40 ft Vintage GN for a few years. I bought the adapter like on the left in your pic, welded a universal Pull Rite adapter plate to it. Worked like a charm. I got all of the parts from Redneck Trailer Supply.

Pull Rite sells an adapter similar to the platform ball hitch on the far right. It sets on the pins that your fifth wheel hitch uses.

I built an adapter like the part on the left so that I could tow my gooseneck flatbed with my 5th wheel hitch. I have a flatbed and I run out of stroke trying to use the ball in the bed. The 5th wheel hitch is much easier and also easier to see to hook up. Capacity is not an issue, I trust the king pit more than I trust the gooseneck ball.
