Need truck with gooseneck hitch in Los Cabos


Hola, I just bought a 27' gooseneck trailer that I will need moved in the next 2 weeks.
It's located about 15 minutes from San Jose del Cabo, and I'm looking for a place to store it in San Jose also.
If anybody is down here now, or will be here in the next two weeks that can help, I would be very thankful and happy to compensate.
Thanks

Thank you willyAirstream for the information.
Unfortunately I don't have the same opinion of him, short story is we emailed back and forth, a price was agreed on last week, he cancelled two consecutive days after I had people staged at both ends and ready to help if need be.
Now he says he's too busy to move it and won't have time until February 18, I tried to reason with him saying that he was leaving me hanging in a very bad way, his comment was, "well this is Mexico", I needed it out last Friday and now have issues with the sellers.
So if anybody has a lead for somebody that has a truck with a gooseneck hitch set up down here, I need help moving an empty trailer about 10 miles in San Jose.
Thanks

Try driving by the rv parks and rv supply store to beg, borrow, plead for assistance. A few Benjamins may entice the truck owner, or motivate the turkey at bajawheeling. Money talks!

just buy a receiver...they just bolt into a bed of a pickup

you'll have to move the beast later anyway

they run $150 to $200 used

I arrive on the 3rd, and will get my truck and RV out of storage and set up at Vila Serena. I could help you after that, most likely the 4th, if you still need assistance.

Freewillie please check your u2u.
The photo above is a fifth wheel hitch also, I need a gooseneck.
Thanks for the advice from the rest, I was doing the above recommendations before I connected with the other guy that bailed.
Also I got rid of all my big trucks, just a small Tacoma 4 door left.
Because of the pressure I'm getting from the sellers I am still open to somebody at an earlier date if possible.
Thanks

I think the 5th wheel 'yoke' pictured above is not what is needed. A gooseneck hitch is a trailer ball mounted in the center of a pick-up bed directly over the axles, bolted (or welded) to the frame underneath the bed. Pascur, you might want to check areas with livestock, especially horses; a lot of horse trailers and large livestock trailers are gooseneck tongued, and a ranchero may help you out for a few pesos. Mytruck / 5th wheel is goosenecked, but i'm stuck here in Baja, NEW Mexico... wish I were closer to he'p.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If it don't stink, don't stir it....

and if it ain't disgusting, it ain't discussed.

Thanks for all the info, the tow company's said they are not set up to move a gooseneck trailer.
I did locate a couple of vaqueros who had a truck with the right setup, we made the move this morning and all is complete, they were also about half the price of the guy in la Paz.
