Is this right for you? Product Expert Alexander C says:

Yes, if you:

  • Frequently switch from towing your fifth wheel to hauling cargo in your truck bed
  • Own a trailer with a shorter nose, so you worry about having enough clearance when turning
  • Hate the rough slop and clanking noise that happens when a king pin is connected to a traditional hitch

No, if you:

  • Have a short trailer - you might have a hard time lowering the trailer down on top of the ball
  • Have a rotating pin box like a Sidewinder on your fifth wheel
Kit replaces your heavy fifth-wheel hitch with a lighter frame that is easier to install and remove and a raised gooseneck ball. Converts your king pin into a gooseneck coupler.

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.

Love this hitch! Bought the Andersen because I wanted to be able to remove hitch easily and be able use the truck bed. It takes only a few minutes to remove from bed no tools required. I installed the bed rail kit myself in my 2019 Ram 2500 short bed. The Andersen hitch allows my 32' fifth wheel 90 degrees turning radius.

Excellent hitch! Working great towing 10k fifth wheel.

I really like the Anderson Hitch. The Hitch is only 40 lbs, so it easy to install and remove so that I can use the bed of my truck when not towing. It was a little tight to install in my rails so I had to do a small amount of grinding to get it to fit. I also purchased the safety chains and one of the hooks was also tight and needed some grinding. The hitch is really easy to use and towing has been smooth.

- AM3200

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.

Still works perfectly! Makes towing so easy.

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!

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!

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

- AM3200

I think is great. Fast, professional and personable. They are always happy to help and they are patient with many, many questions being asked. I highly recommend them. Good prices, too. And if you find a better price they will meet or beat it.

- AM3200

We love our Anderson hitch. Hooking and unhooking is so much easier. It's so much lighter to remove if we need to use our truck bed. Happy campers!

- AM3200

I spent the last year pulling our Montana High Country around the U.S. with this Anderson hitch. I have to admit, at first I was leery of this simple hitch handling a 16,000# 5th wheel, however it has done its job very well. Even on a bad section of road (Hwy. 145 near Ridgway CO) where I swear we became airborne on one of the dips in the road, but the hitch handled the rig just fine. The hitch takes me less than 5 minuets to put in and take out of the truck bed and is light enough to move and store in the front bay of the 5th wheel. The only down side is the need for a 5th wheel tripod stabilizer that will fit in the Anderson King pin adapter, hopefully it is coming soon.

- AM3200

This was an excellent choice for stable, reliable and ease of use hitch. Very easy to hook up in many directions. Would recommended this hitch.

- AM3200

Just received my anderson goosneck 5th wheel hitch and installed right away. Material is made of superior craftsmanship and will be looking forward to not lifting my heavy husky anymore. 5 star all the way

- AM3200

This hitch is perfect. No noise, no play at all. Very easy to hook up. Piece for bed of pickup is light. Can not believe it is rated 20,000 lbs. Love it! Did not buy any other 20k hitch due to weight and cost. Storage in garage is so easy--hang it on the wall.

- AM3200

Overall the best hitch I have owned. Light enough to put in and take out easily. I bucking or banging. Only issue I had was the set screws used to keep it tight kept slipping. I solved that by drilling a small divot where they set and retightened. Overall a excellent hitch.

- AM3200

The Anderson 5th wheel hitch has lived up to name. Lightweight and easy to install. We traveled 10,000 miles with out a problem.

Great, easy to install, smooth transitions from stop to start

I’ve been using this hitch for a year now. It’s the best hitch I’ve ever owned. Light weigh, easy to install and remove.

Product has performed well and has exceeded my expectations. Very easy to install, I really like the ease of removing from my truck when not needed. Does not require 2 people to do.. I highly recommend considering this as an option.

Love it

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 was super easy to deal with as an added bonus!

- AM3200

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. This hitch is also light enough where I can lift it out and carry it with one hand so I have my truck bed back. I’d highly recommend this Andersen hitch.

- AM3200

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.

- AM3200

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.

I purchased the new nylon coupling guide. It works very well and metal no longer is shaved off upon removal.
Paul J - 10/13/2018

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.

- AM3200

Very easy to hook up. You don’t have to be straight inline with the trailer. Easy to put in and out of truck freeing up bed space. Pulls great!

- AM3200

This has been an excellant choice for my Winnebago fifth wheel rv and Ram 2500 combination. Towing is both quiet and smooth with no chucking at all. I can see the ball and anderson socket while hooking up making the process very easy on first try every time. I would recommend this product to anyone within the proper weight range.

- AM3200

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!!!

- AM3200

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 about returning this item. So I am still waiting for the slip to return this Anderson Hitch product part number: AM3200. Other than that customer service were very helpful and friendly. My Dexter drum and hub assembly fit and work exactly as expected.

  • Can Andersen Ultimate be Used With Rotating Pin Box in 2017 Ram 2500 With Factory Pucks
    A fixed fifth wheel hitch is what you are going to need in order to tow your Grand Design with a rotating pin box, the Lippert Turning Point. Rotating pin boxes should not be used with any type of adapter to ensure stability and a solid connection, and not only is the Andersen Ultimate # AM3200 an adapter, but it attaches to standard base rails so you would need to use the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package # RP30154 to mount it.
