Video Transcript for Andersen Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - 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. .

This is the perfect 10" drop for coupling my utility trailer to my 2017 Chevrolet Suburban. Trailer is going to pull level. This polished hitch ball mount is almost too nice to use. It is solid aluminum and is at least half the weight. Easy to handle. Total quality part made in the USA. You get what you pay for and this is worth the money. 439250

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 #. 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

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.

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

  • Best Fixed Ball Mount Option for Motorhome and Tow Dolly Compatibility with 10-11 Inch Drop
  • The Draw-Tite Ball Mount - 9-3/4" Rise, 11" Drop - 9" Long - 3,500 to 5,000 lbs # 80248 will bring your hitch height to 14 or 15 inches to match your tow dolly. The ball mount is rated for up to 5,000 lbs n the drop position so you simply need to use a hitch ball rated for 3,750 lbs or more. I recommend the 2 inch ball # 63845 or the 2-5/16 inch ball # 63847 depending on which matches your coupler. Both are rated for 7,500 lbs so they will work well. The Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • 12 inch Ball Mount Needed
  • We do have a variety of solid ball mounts that you can choose from which I have attached a link of our selection that you can filter through. If you are looking for a ball mount that either has a 12 inch Rise or 12 inch Drop then the best we have to offer is the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # AMSC12 which has a 10-3/4 inch Rise and a 12 inch Drop. It has a special shock absorbing feature to help reduce the effects of road shock and to limit bouncing and vibrations that occur...

  • 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. You can get a better look at the ball mount by viewing the video I've linked for you. If you're wanting something similar with a solid shank, take a look at the Anderson Alumistinger, part # AM3511.

A ball with a longer 1-inch-diameter shank can be used too, such as the 2-5/16-inch # SC30-C from Brophy or the 2-inch ball # 40038 from Curt.
