Video Transcript for Andersen Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - AM3505 Review

Today well be reviewing part number AM3505. This is the Rapid Hitch Alumistinger Ball Mount with 4" drop or 3" rise and rated at 8,000 lbs. It's made from an aluminum super alloy construction and it's a solid bar construction, so you can see here that it's a solid piece. The only opening that we have is for the ball hole and for our hitch pin. It's got a very sleek, unique design and it's extremely lightweight. It's also going to be rustproof. Please keep in mind that this may not work with some newer Toyota or Ford factory hitch receivers.

It is designed to work with a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. With it installed in the drop position, if we take a measurement from the ball platform to the top of the shank or the inside top of the receiver tube, that's where we're going to get our drop measurement from and that's going to measure right around 4". If we we're to install this in the rise position and do that same measurement, it's going to give us a measurement of right around 3". This has 8,000 lbs capacity for the gross trailer weight and 800 lbs for the ton weight. Measuring from the center of the ball hole to the center of the hitch pin hole is going to give us a measurement of 9". When choosing the hitch ball you want to make sure that the shank of the hitch ball does not exceed the ball hole diameter, which for this ball mount is going to measure right at 1".

Also the draw bar thickness, which is this portion here, is going to give us a measurement of 1". It has a nice slant here at the back side, which allows us to slide easily into the receiver tube of your hitch. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of our shank, up here at the top, is going to give us a measurement of about 2". Also when installed in the rise position you want to make sure you have enough clearance between the slant and the back of your vehicle. At the base of that slant to the center of the hitch pin hole is going to measure about 4". The way this would work is you would just simply take it and slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch, line up your pin holes with the pin holes of your hitch. Then you would need to install a 5/8" pin and clip.

This is sold separately; you can refer to our website and type in part number PC3 and it'll refer you to this pin that comes with the clip. Once you have everything installed in your hitch, you're on your way and you're set to go. That's going to do it for today's review of part number AM3505. This is the rapid hitch Alumistinger Ball Mount with 4" drop or 3" rise. .

Thank you for getting back to me so fast on this issue (not really an issue but it's all I could come up with). Your customer service is exceptional. I was surprised to get a call from you rather than the typical email response (how ironic I'm emailing this) and the normal automated processing that we've all become accustomed too. I will continue to be a customer of etrailer as a result of this and also pass along to my friends what a pleasure it has been ordering from your company. 473024

Yesterday,(5-12) I received my Alumistinger ball mount and I'm very impressed with this product. If this works as well as it looks it will be outstanding. My only suggestion would be is to buy the optional pin lock. As good as this looks someone will surely try and help themselves to it. Thank you ETRAILER and I will be purchasing the pin lock before use. H. Spellman 379852

Rugged, tough and functional. Never again will you concern yourself with a rusty hitch. This product will outlast your next 10 vehicles! I honestly get asked often where did I get it... it looks that good on the truck. 361980

Rustproof, solid heavy duty aluminum rated for 8000lbs. My model has 6 inch drop, which is perfect for my heavy duty truck. Mainly use is trailering a fiberglass bass boat which needs a 18 inch tongue height. 48111

Review from a similar Andersen Alumistinger in Ball Mounts


As far as the ease of purchase and fast, free shipping are concerned, this order scores five stars. However, the hitch that was sent to me had some pretty obvious scrapes on one side, and if I were choosing from stocked items in a brick and mortar store, I would have passed on it. It is fully functional though, and it's not going to stay pretty forever hanging off the back of a motorhome for thousands of miles, so I won't be bothering to return it. Great packaging, etrailer. I ordered three items, and all three were securely wrapped in paper and in one compact box. As for the free shipping option, I placed this order on Sunday afternoon, and it was delivered Wednesday morning. This is my second purchase from this site, and it surely won't be my last. 551813

Looks great, very light weight compared to my previous receiver. It’s aluminum so it marks easily so watch while hooking up your trailer. Haven’t really used it yet but I am pleased with it so far. 501915

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

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 #.

One year after purchase, this aluminum receiver still looks new and has worked perfect. Paired with a stainless steel ball, the entire setup is free of rust and oxidation. Coudn't be happier with products or service from eTrailer. 265447

Review from a similar Andersen Alumistinger in Ball Mounts


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 AlumaStinger was exactly as described. Strong, lightweight and high quality.

  • Correct Torque to Install Brophy 2-Inch Hitch Ball SC23-C on Alumistinger Ball Mount AM3505
  • To install the Brophy 2-Inch Hitch Ball # SC23-C on Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3505 you will use a suitable torque wrench (one like # ALL944001) to apply 250-ft-lbs of torque on the nut. I confirmed this with my contact at Brophy Machine Works.

  • 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

As long as your hitch receiver is a 2-inch size (and all hitches that we offer for your truck are this size) then this ball mount will fit and will provide you with some height adjustment capability for matching the heights of your hitch ball and trailer coupler.

  • Is Alumistinger Ball Mount Compatible With Reese Sway-Control Bracket
  • I spoke with a representative of Andersen who said they do not recommend using the Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3505 with sway control due to the amount of stress it would put on the aluminum mount. Instead you can use the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 2753 which like the Alumistinger fits 2" hitches, has a 4" drop and 3" rise along with a weight capacity of 7,500 lbs. It is compatible with the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 2" Ball Mounts # RP26003 that works with Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660.

  • Compatibility of the Alumistinger Ball Mount on a 2017 Toyota 4Runner
  • If your 2017 Toyota 4Runner has a 2 inch receiver opening in the trailer hitch, then you will be able to use the Alumistinger Ball Mount, # AM3505. This ball mount has a 4 inch drop and a 3 inch rise and a gross towing weight rated at 8,000 lbs. You might want to read the attached article on how to choose the correct ball mount. The article will explain how to measure to see if you will need a ball mount with a rise or drop to connect to your trailer.

  • Will Aluminstinger Ball Mount Fit a 2015 Ford F-250 with Factory Trailer Hitch
  • It is hit or miss on the factory Ford trailer hitches. Some of them have offset hitch pin holes for some reason. But I believe that has been resolved. If the hitch pin holes are lined up properly on the receiver on your 2015 Ford F-250 then you can use the Alumistinger # AM3505. Otherwise you would have to use a special Ford ball mount from a dealer.
