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.

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



by:

Never wanted 5th wheel because of losing truck bed space with regular hitch. This is great, pulls like a dream, light weight, removes quick for storage-40lbs., 2018 Bighorn 35’ 5th.



by:

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.



by:

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



by:

Hitch is great but the box this was split open with many holes that the hardware could have easily fallen out. Better packaging would be better. This is the second time I’ve ordered 5th wheel hitches from you and the same thing both times.



by:

I ordered fifth wheel Rails, hitch, a tailgate, and trailer wiring harness for my 2009 Tundra. etrailer provided excellent service and products. Web site pictures, videos and info were superb. In the course of ordering these items I was helped by several staff persons; all of whom were polite, knowledgeable and most helpful. Over several years, etrailer has helped me with a variety of items for a couple of RVs. Always a great experience. They have the eq, they know about it, and they follow through. After my eq is installed, and I have used it, I will review again and send pictures.



by:

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.

This is an excellent hitch. The base is light and easy to remove and store. We needed a 20k hitch and this seem like the best. There is not movement when towing, no noise, chucking, etc.



by:

The Anderson Hitch is a great replacement for my former sliding hitch. With the pin adaptor turned forward I can still turn about 85 degrees. Good product!



by:

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.

Still going strong and i could not be happier with it’s performance. I find the ease of installation and removal as well as it’s overall performance worth the money spent.

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 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.



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

We love our Anderson hitch smoother no chucking and lightweight. Easy to connect and unhitch!!!!!!



by:

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!!!



by:

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.



by:

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!



by:

The Ultimate Hitch made a world of difference in towing my 5th wheel, very smooth compared to traditional hitch. Towed with a 2004 Dodge short bed, 5th wheel never came close to truck cab when turning or backing up. For me the best part was the ease (light weight ) of installing and removing from the bed of truck by myself. I bought the rail mounted steel hitch. Buying and customer service from Etrailer is top notch beyond 5 Stars!



by:

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.



by:

After opening the box and removed the contents the lower bracket which the hitch is secured to isn't provided. Must I order it separately?let me know as I need to have it installed. Thanks

This adapter does fit the industry standard rails like item # RP50054-58 for your 2018 Ram 2500 w8 foot bed with no OEM Prep Package.



by:

I love it and would never go back to a traditional hitch. Much easier to hook up to my 5th wheel, never have to worry about locking or unlocking. Is quieter and so easy to install and uninstall in my truck!



by:

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!
