Have you seen a M105 converted to gooseneck?

Wondering about making an M105 into a gooseneck. Have you seen one? My under bed hitch on the A3 4x4 is about 10" behind the center of the axle. How about some ideas for using the space in front of the bed as part of the A.

I'm looking for one of the hmmwv trailers pictured above if anybody knows of one
I've seen a couple of pictures but never the real thing. Finding one might be a real score !

I'm going to have to keep my upper frame narrower (than the one pictured). I have to get over the M105 bed and I left some of the rack, so need to clear it both directions turning. I think the tongue will be like 6x12 x1/4" or so. I'm mounting the ball down in the truck frame now, about 10" behind the axle and about 6" below the bed floor. I will do a telescoping connector, keep it up while attaching and drop down to pin in place.

Here is what I have to go over and not hit the racks when turning. The part going up and part of the tongue could be wider. I would like to make useful space that the angles above would not accommodate. For what, I don't know.

This is the bed going on the deuce. Ball location is first photo marked in chalk.
