If you want to convert to a goose-neck and not affect your 5th wheel warranty, I would recommend looking at the Reese Goose Box Gen 2 system. It replaces the factory pin box and will utilize a goose-neck ball in the bed of the truck. The gen 2 has taller wings and give additional height between the trailer and pickup. This hitch has air ride built in that should provide for a smoother experience, see website below;

Lippert, manufacturer of many of the 5th wheel frames, will honor the warranty with the Reese goose box.

This is the approach I will take when I update to a '20 3500 and a new 5th wheel.

Good luck in whatever you decide to use.
