Video Transcript for Andersen Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - AM3503 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number AM3503. This is the Alumistinger Ball Mount from Anderson. It's going to provide us with a two inch drop or a one inch rise and it's rated at eight thousand pounds. It's made out of a aluminum alloy, solid bar construction so the only hollow points are your hitch pin clip hole and your ball hole. It's a very lightweight design, sleek and the design is also very unique. It has a nice slant here at the back, which makes it easier to slide in and out of the receiver tube of your hitch.

It's also going to resist rust and corrosion. Couple of measurements I'd like to go over real quick. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of the ball hole, we have a measurement of seven inches. From the center of the ball hole to the start of the curve here at the top, it's going to give us a measurement of four inches. If we measure from the curve to the center of the hitch pinhole, we're going to have a measurement of three and three-eighths of an inch. And the measurement from the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the mount measures right at two inches.

The overall length is right at ten and a quarter inches. It's a really easy installation. You just take the mount and slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch, line up your pinholes and secure it with a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. These items are sold separately and you can refer to the ball mount's product page under related items to view those or go to our website and type in part number PC3 and it will refer you to this five eighths inch pin that comes with a clip. In this position, if we measure from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the ball platform, it's going to give us a drop of two inches. We can use this mount in the rise position. All we need to do is take it out and flip it over.

If we perform that same measurement, it's going to give us a rise of one inch. Another important measurement to go over is the ball hole diameter. You want to make sure that you choose the correct hitch ball. You need to make sure that the hitch ball shank does not exceed the diameter of our ball hole. For this mount, the ball hole diameter is one inch.

Then also the thickness of our draw bar platform is also going to be right at one inch. This does have a capacity of eight thousand pounds gross towing weight and a maximum tongue weight capacity of eight hundred pounds. Again, it's a really neat, sleek design, very lightweight, and it's a really nice ball mount. That's going to complete today's review of part number AM3503. This is the Alumistinger Ball Mount with a two inch drop or a one inch rise. .

I ordered the product at mid afternoon on Thursday and it was delivered and in my hands the next day. Very fast!!! The ball mount looks so cool with aluminum finish, almost a polished look. Light weight and rugged, should do the job nicely. 206100

This ball mount is super well made. Light and strong fits perfectly. I was wanting something rust proof with higher tongue and towing capacity. I didn't want something that would be just good enough I wanted something better. The towing capacity is 8000lbs,,,gives me piece of mind. etrailer got this to me super quick ! 607711

Very good hitch, this is the third alumni stinger that I own. Top notch product and very good service by e-trailer, fist time customer and wii use them again. 28077

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

Great product. I ordered two. One for my new tractor and one to replace the rusted one I had to pay someone to remove from my truck. Rusted in place. I had purchased an Anderson 10K version over 12 years ago for a 2 5/16th ball trailer. Other than some scratches the mount still looks and works great. I decided to stick with Anderson but just got the 8K version to save a couple bucks. Light weight, looks great and never rusts. Can't beat that! I plan on getting two more with the 3" rise to use on my tractor with larger tired trailers. One for a 2" ball and one with a 2 5/16 ball. 511345

The solid aluminum ball mount has performed beautifully and it will always look like new without rust or corrosion. I have it on the back of my Mercedes ML350 and it adds rather than detracts from the appearance of the vehicle. There are no welds or any type of joinery to fail, just one solid piece of aircraft grade aluminum. I am totally satisfied with this purchase. 348574

Ask the Experts about this Andersen Ball Mounts

  • Which Hitch Ball can be Used with the Rapid Hitch Alumistinger Ball Mount
    The Alumistinger Ball Mount, # AM3503, will accept a hitch ball with a 1 inch diameter shank that is at least 2 inches long. I added a link to all of the hitch balls we carry with a 1 inch diameter shank for you to review. You will also need to select a ball that is the correct size for your trailer coupler. I would recommend going with the Convert-A-Ball 10,000 lb Interchangeable Ball Set, # 902B, which is stainless steel for longevity and includes all three ball sizes.

  • Recommended Alumistinger Ball Mount & J-Pin Stabilization Pin with Lock for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
    The Andersen Alumistinger Ball Mount for 2" Hitch - 1" Rise, 2" Drop - 7" Long - 8K # AM3503 is compatible with the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches # 63201. This will be a great option for the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76098 which is a confirmed fit for her 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. The Alumistinger ball mount is designed to be used for towing so it will be plenty strong for the J-pin anti-rattle....

  • Can Aluminum Ball Mounts Use Hitch Balls Made of Dissimilar Metal
    We spoke with our aluminum ball mount manufacturers and they say that their ball mounts are made of high grade aluminum that contains a large amount of silica and alloys to resist corrosion and does not cause breakdown of the metal enough to effect structural damage. This protects against any corrosion caused by using dissimilar metals. For a 2 inch ball to use with the # AM3503 you would want the part # 63845 and then for a 2-5/16 inch ball the part # 63847.

  • What Hitch Ball Shank Length is Needed for Aluminum Andersen Alumistinger Ball Mount
    The Andersen Alumistinger Ball Mount for 2" Hitch - 1" Rise, 2" Drop - 7" Long - 8K # AM3503 has a 1 inch diameter hitch ball hole and will require a hitch ball with at least a 2-1/8 inch length. I recommend the Curt # 40038 for a 2 inch ball or the Curt # C40007 for a 2-5/16" hitch ball. Both of these have a 2-1/4 inch length and are rated higher than the ball mount.

  • Aluminum Ball Mount Recommendation with 3 inches of Rise
    Based on the dimensions you listed you will want a ball mount with a 3 inch rise to tow your trailer level. For an aluminum ball mount with 3 inches of rise you would want the part # DTBM4400. I attached an FAQ article on picking out the correct rise/drop ball mount for you to check out as well.

  • Fit and Compatibility of Alumistinger Ball Mount and Recommended Ball for Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    The Andersen Aluminstinger # AM3503 has a towing capacity of 8,000lbs and a tongue weight capacity of 800lbs. If your boat trailer and cargo are below this weight then the Andersen Alumistinger Ball Mount will perform great. Typically tongue weight is 10-15% of the trailer, so for your 5,000lb boat would be anywhere from 500-750lbs. If you are planning on upgrading your boat then I would recommend a higher capacity ball mount like the Draw-Tite # 4280. This ball mount also has the...

  • Distance from the Center of Ball Hole to the Curve on the Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3503
    The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the beginning of the curve is 3-3/8 inches, I attached a photo for you showing this dimension. If you need any further dimensions, just let me know.

  • Are Hitch Balls Made of Aluminum
    I know of no aluminum hitch balls. Steel - raw, chrome plated or nickel-plated - is the material of choice for a hitch ball due to its tensile strength, which far exceeds that of aluminum. Tensile strength is the measure of the force required to pull something to its breaking point. High-tensile-strength steel is about 4 times as strong as aluminum and 3 times as strong as stainless steel. We do offer billet aluminum ball mounts like the fixed type # DTLBM8200 and the adjustable...

  • Short Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2013 Volkswagen Touareg
    Having a ball mount that is longer should not be an issue. It actually can provide more clearance when turning. The standard for a 2 inch ball mount is around 8 to 8-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. We currently offer several aluminum ball mounts for 2 inch hitches that have a 2 inch drop. Alumistinger, # AM3503 Self-Locking ball mount, # DTLBM8200 Solid aluminum ball mount, # DTBM5200

  • 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

  • Shortest Available 2-Inch Ball Mount
    You can see all fixed 2-inch ball mounts by clicking on the linked page. The shortest of these is the Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3503. This aluminum ball mount measures 7-inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It offers either 2-inches of drop or 1-inch of rise. Tow rating is 8K and tongue weight is rated at 800-lbs. A video is linked for you.

  • Aluminum Ball Mount Options for a 2014 Mercedes 350 BlueTec
    I have two ball mount options that fit almost all of the specifications that you listed. The first option is the Andersen Alumistinger Ball Mount, # AM3503. This ball mount has gross trailer weight (GTW) capacity of 8,000 lbs, a tongue weight (TW) capacity of 800 lbs, a drop of 2 inches, a rise of 1 inch and the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball is 7 inches. The only part of this ball mount that does not fall within your specification is that this...

  • Brophy Stabilizer Bracket Recommendation for the Alumistinger Ball Mount
    Yes, the Brophy Stabilizer Bracket # RHSB that you referenced should work well with the Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3503. There should be plenty of clearance between the hitch opening of your hitch and the start of the curves of your Alumistinger ball mount part # AM3503. I attached a review video for the # RHSB for you to check out as well.
