Andersen AM3200 Dimensions

This fifth-wheel hitch system includes a lightweight frame that installs on industry-standard rails just like a regular fifth-wheel hitch. The frame holds a ball above your pickup bed at the proper height to connect to your fifth-wheel trailer. Because the ball is held above the bed of your truck, this adapter avoids the stress and chucking that longer, conventional fifth-wheel adapters create. And the included coupler adapter installs in a snap, converting your trailer's king pin to a gooseneck ball coupler.


The frame with ball weighs only 40 pounds and replaces the standard, heavy, cast iron skid plate and locking jaws of a typical fifth-wheel hitch. This system is light enough for just one person to easily install and remove. You'll always be able to take out the frame when you want full use of your pickup truck bed.


The king pin adapter includes a remote release that you operate with a cable, so you can latch the coupler to the ball without climbing into the back of your truck. Made of powder-coated steel, the adapter is resistant to rust and corrosion.


And because a ball-and-coupler connection has more swivel than a standard fifth-wheel hitch, you'll be able to more easily hook up your trailer on uneven ground.

Video Transcript for Review of Andersen Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - AM3200

Ellen: Hey, everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and today we're taking a look at the Anderson ultimate connection fifth wheel trailer hitch system. Now this is going to be a very unique system to haul your fifth wheel trailer down the road with using your fifth wheel rails, but this is going to be a much lighter weight fifth wheel hitch than the typical fifth wheel hitch that you'll see out there. A lot of times it makes it difficult to take that fifth wheel hitch out of your rails. It's pretty heavy. You have to get a second person to even get it out of there and a lot of times people just end up leaving it in their truck and then they're kind of limited as far as how much stuff they can really haul in the back of their bed with that fifth wheel hitch in the way.

They're pretty bulky and they take up a lot of room. So this is going to eliminate all those issues.It's really easy to drop down in place. It doesn't weigh too much at all. It just is about 40 pounds, so really not that heavy. Definitely something that a single person can do by themselves.

You don't have to worry about getting an extra set of hands to take this out. We'll just have our four pins and clips connecting it into our rails, just like any standard fifth wheel hitch. So really easy to use. The thing that's different about that besides the base is that the way it connects to our fifth wheel trailer. This coupler ball at the top is actually going to fit into this system here, which is going to be an adapter that goes on our kingpin on our fifth wheel trailer.

So it's going to capture our kingpin there and then our ball goes into this funnel. And the nice thing about this as well is that it doesn't require any kind of grease. So we don't need to worry about any kind of lube plates or anything. We don't have to worry about lithium grease and getting all messy and all over our clothes and all that. It's just a greaseless system.So once we have this installed on our kingpin, our coupler drops down over the ball and captures that in place.

Then we can release the trigger that's on our kingpin or on our fifth wheel, and I just have this cable wrapped around here just so it's not too unwieldy, but that does let you unhook it and hook it up easily. The other nice thing about this is that it's pretty maneuverable. We can be offset from our ball by up to three inches and it'll still drop down in place. It rotates around really nicely. So it's going to give you a better clearance for long or short bed trucks. And it also produces less chucking when compared to standard adapters.So that ball really fits pretty tightly in there. I'm shaking it all around and doesn't really want to go anywhere. Customers have great things to say about this. Not only is it super lightweight and easy to deal with, but it's very quiet. You don't have to deal with any kind of creaking or squeaking or anything like that. And again, no chucking so you won't have kind of kakunk 00:03:01 feeling as you're taking off and coming to a stop. And so it's just going to be a very nice, simple, well-built system. There is an offset to this. I have this set up in a profile so you can see that offset. So from the center of the ball to the front of our attachment point there, it's going to be seven inches. If we go the other way, it's going to be 17 inches. So we'll have nine inches of offset depending on how we have this configured in our truck.Now, this one thing I will say that this is not designed to work with beds that are shorter than six feet, so some of your trucks out there that have a five and a half or shorter bed it's really isn't going to be compatible with. But it does work with industry standard fifth wheel rails in your long bed or short bed trucks, works with Curt, Draw Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese and Valley. Drops right into place. Got our pins and clips. Also have these two screws so we can attach our release onto that kingpin on the side there. So just push it in, pull out the lever to open up the pin, push it in, or let it snap in place whenever we're ready to tow.All in all, I think this is a really cool idea. It's a little scary at first just because you're used to seeing fifth wheel hitches that are pretty huge and have a lot of metal and are super bulky so might be a little bit nervous about this one that seems like it can't possibly be as strong as it is, but it's really durable. It's able to hold up to or tow up to 20,000 pounds with a vertical load limit of 4,500 pounds and it does great job. So I think it's a great alternative to still have access to your truck bed without having to worry about that big bulky hitch in the way. We also have a height adjustment for our ball here and we can pull the pin out. So right now it's at the tallest setting and that's going to be 18 inches from the top of the ball to the top of the rails. The next one down would be 16 7/8 and then the lowest position is 15 3/4.The distance between the tabs in the bottom where we make our attachment into our rails, that's going to be 20 1/2 inches apart, center to center. Get my pin in here. There we go. So all in all, well-built system, I think it'll be a great addition to your towing setup. The ball is made of a zinc plated steel. Our base is made of a powder coated steel, and this is made in the USA and has a one year limited warranty from Anderson. That's going to do it for our look at the Anderson ultimate connection fifth wheel trailer hitch system.

It looks like a very good product BUT unfortunately did not work for my Fifth wheeler and truck combination. I am referring to the Anderson fifth wheeler hitch. I notified etrailer.com about returning this item. So I am still waiting for the slip to return this Anderson Hitch product part number: AM3200. Other than that etrailer.com customer service were very helpful and friendly. My Dexter drum and hub assembly fit and work exactly as expected. 248058

Couldn't have been more happier changing from a conventional hitch to the Andersen. I pulled a 41' Solitude 374TH with it and never had an issue. Loved having my bed back while stationary, unlike having to keep a conventional hitch in or struggle with two people getting it out. Hooking up was a breeze too. I just used my mark as usual and after a time or two was dropping down on the ball on the first try. Easy peezzzeee. Order you one today!!! 620375

I received the Andersen Ultimate hitch and Safety chain kit on Wednesday. This hitch is fantastic! It slid right into my existing standard rails and the coupler went on as easy as advertised. I have a 2016 Ram 2500 short bed and Grand Design Reflection 337RLS. I had a Curt E16 with the slider and would have to use the slider for tight maneuvers. I no longer have to worry about it. I now have plenty of clearance and I don't have to get out of the truck to engage the slide. I also like that I shed about 100 lbs of weight in the bed by making the switch. The ride is noticeably smoother and quieter. Great product. I 418743

I bought the Andersen because of problems I was having with a Reese Slider. Most of the time the slider wouldn't unlock and slide back. The Andersen gave me the necessary clearance between the cab and the front cap on the trailer to make sharp turns. Another benefit of the Andersen is the reduction of noise when starting and stopping. The only down side to the hitch is I have a hard time getting it lined up when hitching. 434963

After receiving the kit i saw another one on the shelf at a local store. I noticed the one on the shelf had a steel ball cup mounted to it. Mine did not have that part. I called andersen and asked if the ball cup was available for purchase seperately. They told me no need to purchase bevause they will ship me one for free! Later on, i towed my trailer to a camp site and upon arrival i could not get the release pin to open to drop the trailer while we stayed in it. I called andersen and described the problem i had, they shipped a whole new block and cable assembly for free!! I am ver pleased with the product and also impressed with the level of customer service! 424205

Thank you for reaching out. All i can say is, as long as i own a fifth wheel i will use your product. I am very pleased with the quality of the product and obviously the customer service as well!

Very pleased with the Andersen hitch. Easy to install or remove, light weight and strong. So much more simple and faster to setup than my previous hitch. I can have full use of my truck bed in just a couple of minutes. I also feel the front jacks on the trailer will last longer since I am not stressing them by forcing the kingpin into the hitch as I had to do with my old hitch. The only negative I can find is the ball funnel. When raising the trailer off the ball it is important to chock the truck and trailer. If not chocked the truck can roll foward and break the lip off the ball funnel. Otherwise, in my opinion, this is the best 5th wheel hitch out there. 504527

Very good product. Easy, clean installation and removal. Only problem is when unhooking my trailer. The trailer does not come off the ball easily. It removes a shaving of metal off the ball each time I unhook. I suspect I will have to replace the ball at some time. 441852

I purchased the new nylon coupling guide. It works very well and metal no longer is shaved off upon removal.

Buying and installing the AM3200 filth wheel hitch was one of the best thing I Have done . It has made trailering a lot more comfortable driving , very little bucking when going over bridge expansion joints and bumps in the highways. I have a few problems hooking-up with the type of trailer hitch I Have on my 5th wheel and I also have air ride on my TV. When hooking up I Let all the air pressure off my air ride system and off the hitch. Before I disconnect (raise the trailer) I put on a ratchet strap to hold the hitch from dropping down, It sounds like a lot of work but it will have. To do till I come up with a better plan. I would not go back to my other hitch, you have to excuse the pics hard to pick 524001

We have the Anderson Hitch installed on our 2017 Ford SuperDuty and pull a Reflection 337RLS. We have traveled over 4,000 miles and have been extremely satisfied. The hitch allows plenty of clearance between 5th wheel, bed, and the truck cab. Hook-up and disconnect has always been easy, even with RV lots that were uneven dirt lots. I use Curt thin rubber sound dampeners (item 16900) and this provides a quiet, tight fit between the rails and hitch. Of course the light weight makes it easy to remove when not towing and less weight when you are towing. A great product for the right truck, trailer combination. 444939

Arrived promptly and mounted to the rails easily. Height of the old hitch was duplicated with the adjustable ball. High quality welds and appears to be very sturdy. I like the fact that it is less than 1/2 the weight of the hitch that it replaced. 434248

I was shocked to order this Anderson Hitch at mid-day on Thursday and it was delivered by 5:00 PM the very next day. Product was as advertised.

I’m very happy with this hitch. It exceeded all expectations. I no longer have the pushing and clattering of the traditional fifth wheel hitch.

Couldn’t be happier with this hitch. I was looking for a better quality slider to replace my old model and looking at spending a lot more when I found this Andersen hitch. Stands up to our 39 foot Jayco, no worries about having to remember to slide it before backing up. Rides so much quieter and, when I want to remove it, I can easily do it myself! The plastic piece broke when a dealer dried to lift the trailer with a backhoe (long story) Andersen replaced it without batting an eye! Pulling with a 2019 F350 crew can short box. Oh and trailer.com was super easy to deal with as an added bonus! 784868

  • Recommended Bed Rails for Anderson Ultimate on a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic
    I recommend using the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # RP50142-58 for the Andersen Ultimate Connection # AM3200 on your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic because it eliminates any drilling into the frame of your pickup (you do need to make holes in the bed of your truck though which is the same for any rail kit). Then for wiring I recommend the Hopkins Endurance # 41157 because it is a reliable option that uses the 90-degree wiring so you don't have to worry about pinching...

  • Lightweight 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2017 Ram 2500 with 8 Foot Bed
    I have the perfect option for your 2017 Ram 2500 with an 8' bed. I recommend using the Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch System part # AM3200.

A gooseneck hitch ball has a greater swivel radius than standard 5th wheel hitches. The hitch also only weighs around 55 lbs which will be loads easier to remove in comparison...
