Video Transcript for Andersen Ball Mounts AM3511 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number AM3511. This is the Rapid Hitch Alumistinger Ball Mount with a 10" drop rated at 9,000 pounds. It's made from an aluminum alloy construction. It's a solid bar, so it's just one piece. No cuts. No welds.

You can see here how it has a slant on the back. That's going to allow it to slide easily in and out of the hitch. It's a very lightweight ball mount and the good thing about it being that alloy aluminum is that it's going to stand up well against rust and corrosion. This is designed to fit inside 2" x 2" trailer hitch receivers. Again, it's going to give us that 10" drop, or you can use this in the rise position and it's going to give you a 9" rise.

It offer a capacity of 8,000 pounds of gross trailer weight and 800 pounds of maximum tongue weight. A few measurements to go over real quick. If we take a measurement from the distance of center of where the hitch ball mounts to the center of the hitch pin hole up here, it's going to give us a measurement of 11 7/10". When choosing a hitch ball, you want to make sure it does not exceed the ball hole diameter. Which, for this mount is going to be 1", so this does use hitch balls with a 1" shank diameter. The thickness of the ball platform is going to measure 1 1/4", which is just that portion there.

The width of the ball platform at the widest point is going to be 2 1/4". When using this in the rise position, you want to make sure that you have enough room at the back of your vehicle, so we simply do a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the beginning of the curve. That measurement is going to be 3 3/4". The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank is going to measure right at 2" to that point there. The way installs is you just take the shank, slide it into your hitch, line up your pin holes, and insert a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. Those items are sold separately.

You can refer to our website and type in part number Pc3. It's going to refer you to this 5/8" pin that comes with a clip or you can look on this product's product page, under related items to view some more options. That's going to to it for today's review of part number AM3511. This is the Rapid Hitch Alumistinger Ball Mount rated at 8,000 pounds. .

Review from a similar Andersen Alumistinger in Ball Mounts


Very light and well made! No sharp edges to speak of with a nearly chrome finish. I am using it in the 1" lift position to pull a 24' pontoon trailer with a 22" tongue height. My only complaint is that I wished I would have ordered a ball with longer shank as the nut only grabs 7/8 of the threaded shank due to the thickness of the tongue. I may lose the lock washer in place of a standard washer and red loctite just to grab a couple more threads... 99073

Review from a similar Andersen Alumistinger in Ball Mounts


Great hitch. After having an adjustable hitch fail on me I wanted to go with something really strong for pulling my horse trailer. The ratings are much higher than I need, but the price was reasonable. The hitch mounts easily, and the trailer goes on and off the hitch easier than the other because there is "0" play. Important hint is to use the instructions available on e-trailer to learn what drop and length one needs before ordering. Also pay attention to how thick the ball mount is--an inch, so your screw has to be long enough to accommodate this. 252609

Review from a similar Andersen Alumistinger in Ball Mounts


Hitch is extremely light compared to what I have been using for years. But, though very light has higher load capacity than most everything I have used in the past 35 yrs. for towing bass boats. Doesn't stick out as far in the back either. This is a solid unit and you cannot put any kind of anti - rattle device in it that I am aware of, but there are other methods available for that. So far best ball mount I have ever owned! 110320

Review from a similar Andersen Alumistinger in Ball Mounts


This is a fantastic product that is reasonably priced considering its virtue. It is very strong, looks great and, because it will not rust, it will keep looking great. I already had one of these for one vehicle and needed another for a new vehicle. I did not even consider looking at the steel drawbars. This one costs very little more than a steel drawbar and is worth every penny. 169065

This was my first order with E-Trailer. I placed my order on a Sunday and I received a confirming email the next morning on Monday that it was shipping and included the tracking #. Great job with their customer service. The quality of the product is exactly what I expected and very light weight. This is a very nice drawbar. 186120

Review from a similar Andersen Alumistinger in Ball Mounts


It's a nice looking ball mount, unfortunately it would not fit into my 2" receiver. Most ball mounts have rounded corners, and this one has a square shape. That difference made the Alumistinger too big to fit. Would have looked great on my black Lexus, unfortunately, I'll have to return it and go with something more standard. 57544

This Aluminum ball mount with 2" rise is working great on my 2012 Honda Pilot. Whenever possible I prefer aluminum products because of reduced weight and it's rust-free properties. E-Trailer is great. I purchased it with the greaseless hardball 2" ball which look and work well together. 126134

Great finish.Installed in my receiver and it rattles so bad that I cannot use it.This must be because of the light weight.I pull trailers almost everyday and never had a ball mount rattle this much.Ordered a stainless steel ball mount that I can put an anti-rattle pin in. 133270

Ask the Experts about this Andersen Ball Mounts
Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Is the Finish on the Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball # 63853 Shiny or Dull
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball, # 63853, to check the finish on it. It is a polished stainless steel so it is shiny. I have added a picture I took of the ball so you can see. It is shiny enough to where if you look closely, you can see the reflection of the camera. For the Alumistinger, we have several different ones to choose from: # AM3505 # AM3503 # AM3511 # AM3509 # AM3507

  • Ball Mount with a Rise Recommendation for Towing a Trailer Taller than Truck Hitch
  • The easiest solution that would allow your trailer to be towed level would be to get the correct rise/drop ball mount. In order to pick out the correct ball mount you need to be on level ground with both your vehicle and trailer, measure from the top of your hitch opening to the ground. Now with the trailer sitting perfectly level measure from the bottom of the coupler to the ground. The difference between those two figures is the amount of rise/drop needed. If you do need a 9 inch rise...

  • Recommendation for a Trailer Ball Mount with an 11 Inch Drop For a Motor Home Towing a Tow Dolly
  • The Hidden Hitch Ball Mount, # 80248, with the 11 inch drop would be a good choice. The 11 inch drop will put you right about where you need to be (14 inches from the ground). It will actually be a little higher at 14.5 inches but the tongue weight from the tow dolly should take care of that. I have included a link to our FAQ article on choosing the right ball mount for reference. Keep in mind that this ball mount is rated for 5,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 500 pounds tongue weight....

  • Is Shank of Hidden Hitch # 80248 11 Inch Drop Ball Mount Hollow or Solid Steel
  • The shank portion of the Hidden Hitch # 80248 ball mount is hollow 2 inch steel tube. The ball mount is rated for 3500 lbs towing/350 lbs tongue weight when used in the rise position, or 5000 lbs towing/500 lbs tongue weight when used in the drop position.
